What's your relax campaign?

SethsKidsSethsKids Registered Users Posts: 12
At the moment we're all going through a fair amount of stress so I've found myself going back to campaigns that I know I can dominate and having a more relaxed and playful go through.

The most relaxing for me is Karaz a karak.

Between friends I call it my chicken soup campaign as it's comforting to slowly breeze through it.

So, what is your chicken soup campaign and why?

    Malekith, as I've played his faction for more than 1000 hours.
    The Empire is very easy for me too.

    Grom campsign, by far and away the easiest right now.

    For therapy, i really love a full range pirate coast army. Its not chicken soup, in that its quite difficulty to achieve in early stages. By the end though, your 8-12 handgunners will shred everything. everything. And in the most satisfying way.

    Pew pew pew pew.

    I relax when i play even if i crank the difficulty up.

    So all of them
    It needs to be pointed out that what people call "cheese" is just playing the game the way it actually exists not in some fictional way they think it is supposed to work.

    I always like to go for a Gor-Rok campaign. It’s easy but since the update you are usually always surrounded by enemies.

    Enjoyable and pretty chilled campaign.

    Either Vlad or Mannfred. My most played LL's by some distance, the campaigns don't tend to spring any surprises on me.

    Ikit.. just going wild with dakka is very relaxing..
  • GrayserGrayser Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 311
    Ikit Claw can more or less auto anyone so its pretty chill.

    Tyrion arguably one of the easiest and most relaxed campaigns in my opinion.

    Grombrindal is also decent for a short fun campaign.

    Repanse is fun in the Vortex for the first 60-80 turns (until she has finished capping the desert basically.

    Any HE campaign in Vortex is pretty straightforward... if you have trouble sleeping, I would recommend Eltharion, after the first 10 turns the pressure is right off.

    Tyrion, Malekith and Imrik.

    Count Noctilus of the Dreadfleet. A mix of his starting position being ignored even if your at war with half the map and the fact that I dont bother with growing an empire, growing my network with coves the pirate way, sacking and running away.

    Its quite relaxing just cruising the coasts and attacking fat coast cities out of nowhere.

    Settra for a close second after you get through the early game and get a small empire going. That no upkeep, no money issues, no unit buying means that I dont even care if I lose units or entire armies, just recruit again. Never afraid of going into a deficit is very relaxing.

    Definitely agree regarding Noctilus.

    Depends on the level of ordertide. It used to be Vlad or Manfred, but it hasn't been that enjoyable for a while. The latest beta patch is probably the best Mortal Empires VC experience in many months (apart from Proving grounds, that was a phenomenal VC experience).

    I'm always down for a faction that doesn't need to turtle much at the start of the campaign, so Clan Eshin, Clan Mors, Malekith, Nagarythe and the Empire all have plenty of enemies early on, leading to some great fights before elite units arrive on the field.

    Morathi, Belegar, Kroq-Gar tend to be my go to for a real challenge though.

    If you just wanted to know which i find the easiest then its eltharion

    Is it still the case with Settra? In Vortex, with Repanse and Snikch you now add in Grom and the effeminate Knife-ear and his campaign could be a whole lot more interesting.

    The TK are not a faction I enjoy playing as, so I have not touched them for a long time.

    Repanse doesn't give me much trouble, neither does Snikch honestly, you can built up before heading west, one of the main reason why I didn't chose my preferred LL Arkhan the Black. Cant say about Grom though as I havent played Settra with the last dlc.

    For me it’s Louen Leoncoeur, once I get the red duke wiped out and peace with Marienburg, I love uniting the kingdom and forging a strong relationship with the empire and wood elves.

    I like building up my farm economy and slowly preparing for my crusade for whomever I choose. I’ve always focused on my own crusades.

    Do I go for the northern chaos tribes, help the elves wipe out the dark elves, assist the already crusading Bretonnians, hunt down the non existent rats? Very enjoyable and chilled.

    If by relax you mean the low effort chill campaign?

    Wood Elves - Orion.

    I play assorted Greenskins like 66% of the time or more, though. I also enjoy Alberic and Lokhir a lot.

    Ikit Claw, because you always feel safe and secure with those sweet nukes he has + he got an extremely easy starting position. Ranged focused doomstacks can whipe out any enemy stacks even if you are badly outnumbered. Just take a good position, get a bunch of ratling guns, warplock jezzails, plaque priests for magic/frontline, engineers for insane buffing and you are good to go. An extremely relaxing gameplay of an unstoppable technocratic warmachine)

    But for strategy games it's usually Warcraft 3.

    Maybe one day Warcraft 3: Reforged won't suck and will actually contain all the features of the original game which no longer works because battle.net forces a patch on you that breaks your OG game.

    My relax is not caring about winning and just role play a pirate faction. Sail around and raiding coastal towns.

    That's literally how you win the Pirate Vortex Campaign as Nocti.
