    CA has got more fans to Warhammer fantasy than before. I never knew about it till total ware warhammer came out. Your comment is a joke right now.

    And that's exactly the problem..... CA is making the game for you, not for the old fans. That's where the $$ is.

    @amon_chakai
    How about CA making the game also for old total war fans like me and many others on this forum?

    I respect and love the warhammer world and its lore, but I honestly couldn’t care less about TT.

    @ArneSo
    My "respect and love" for the warhammer world was nutured by TT many years ago. For me, the two go hand in hand; I painted the models and read the corresponding army books for the lore and rules.

    I get it, you're a Total War fan first, and a Warhammer fan second. Nothing wrong with that. And you're right, you're probably in the majority on this forum.
    But CA could have created it's own generic fantasy game-world, and it wouldn't have made much of a difference for a many people like @howla .
    As it happened, CA adopted the warhammer world for better or worse, and therefore has a responsibility to respect the lore and, by extension, the old school Warhammer fans.

    They have more respect for the lore than GW did

    As the officially oldest fan of TT Warhammer I feel p respected.

  • amon_chakaiamon_chakai Posts: 195Registered Users
    @FungusHound That's your opinion. GW created the fantasy lore over decades, CA started adapting it 3/4 years ago.

    They’ve absolutely come to me in friendship offering respect like honest men. That is why when they have made enemies those enemies have become mine too.

    I doubt they're bothered by someone like OP.

    It's pretty clear these threads are just to Garner a reaction. Happily this forum is pretty mature so the reaction is mostly to have fun with it rather than the presumed desired reaction.

    That said vitriol to developers is an issue. I don't think people who hurl it should be included in discussions. The price of entry should be civility.

    ''As the officially oldest fan of TT''-Who died and made you king?You may be the ''oldes''t but your the type that would be pleased with Warhammer being 2 pixels swinging 2 stick with out lagging.

    The op is cooky AS ****!

    There things I like about CA work and things I don't ,but when I(or others members of the forum) want smthings to change
    I don t go around throwing tantrum threads with no cohesive ideeas in it.

    The only thing I ''agree'' with is Cylostra.They didn t go big enough with her (but the lore of the deep ''slurp'' noice!!).No multiple song abilities to show she is the ''SIREN'' of the storm.Her bretonian heroes and summons should have had fish bones ,broken a harpoons,ship parts shield etc.To look more thematic.NO spells or units to tie her with stromfels.Crab mount choice pffffff ,she should have been floating on her old ships wheel with here knights holding her up as a mount.And don t get me started with miss mutant sword leg fish girls lack of a proper 50/50 sartosa roster.

    Shut the hell up boomer. CA has more respect for the tabletop then you.

    GW approves everything in TWWH.

    except that the old fans could have remembered Respanse...

    I mean she was long gone in terms of TT given that BR never got new armybooks after the 6th edition.


    Also friendly reminder that GW approves everything CA put out there as contend.

    Not sure if that was intended but naming her “Respanse” made me laugh so hard! 😂

    In this period CA is showing how little it cares about the franchise. Not only the fact that there is no timeline, or the terrible comparison with super smash bros. This is unacceptable for all the warhammer fans. But it isn't all. First Cylostra, then Gelt and the Empire rework, and now Repanse and the bad names changes (Black crag? The awakened? Sylvania?). Seriously to show some respect for us, loyal fans of the franchise who wanted just to experience a true warhammer fantasy game, complete and coherent with the lore. But at CA it seems not tobe relevant. I'm truly disappointed and i ask to all of the fans to boycott this backstabbing company.

    thats a hot take broski

    They renamed a bunch of factions that had generic names like the dwarfs. There's a thread about it.

    Hohoho. No. I'm not cleaning this up. The thread gets closed. There are too many personal insults to count.

    And how many times to do I have to say that the flag system is not a disagree button? Ah. Now if only the keyboard had an infinity sign.

    Edit: Still closed, but after review some points came up.

    1) Calling for a boycott is against the Terms and Conditions.

    "1.6 We do not allow spam or advertising material or posting off-forum links that connect to spam, advertising material, or any form of protests (this includes boycotts and petitions centered around any anti-developer/publisher campaigns). Doing so will get you banned."

    Consider this a warning.

    2) This means that the Abuse flags were warranted and not false flags. Abuse can refer to abuse of the Terms and Conditions as well as abuse of individuals. So I apologize for reacting so hastily to the number of flags and this was an accurate use of them.

    Sometimes you gotta eat crow.

    But as a result the thread certainly remains closed.
