    Holy 10fps batman!

    Still, I'd rather see some unoptimised WIP than nothing at all, so thanks for putting this together. Proof, if it were needed (and I'd argue it was) that things are moving forward and being developed. Now let the narrator go to the toilet please, really sounds like he needs it.

    Really appreciate the update.

    I think a lot of us expected something new when we were told about big news. Not that there's anything wrong with the video, but it's not exactly big news.

    Nothing much that we haven't seen before. Still looks rough and unpolished ( I know I know it's in the disclaimer, but still)

    Nothing really new here...

    And it's aways painful to see those recolours (no the chaos spawns are the same, I can go in WH2 and screenshot them :P), made even more painful by how often we see them(the recolours)... uhhhhhhh...

    If I can say something good about this video it's - the soul grinder looks cool.

    Khorne was fine because they usually showed the awesome warriors alongside the Daemons and didn't really focus on the Spawn. They showed a bit too much warhound though.

    Tzeentch though.... nothing but Chaos Spawn and Forsaken with the occasional daemon.

    The great bastion looks like the empire gate maps in terms of complexity to me. Like helmgart's defense.

    Not sure what's really new short of buildables. Doesnt seem to be that much of a new siege map layout afterall.

    Would've also liked to see someplace else than grand cathay siege. I mean we havent seen yet kislev settlements. What about the demons? I'd like to see how their "town defense" look like. Now that would be some news. Both in terms of look and gameplay.

    Well, it was a very pretty video, and I love Miao Ying thunder sass animations, but it was also a big ball of nothing new !

    At least, Tzeentch got them blue and purple gorgoeus colors to looks at !

    Probably has a much wider reach than the blog posts, even if I personally appreciate them less.

    I'm pretty sure those shields are new.

    What was the Big News again?

    Kairos Fateweaver is sexy and I would go straight for him.
    Is it being straight when it's with a birb demon of change ?

    Nice trailer but that's definitely not "Big News"
  • RamsesIIIRamsesIII Registered Users Posts: 1,052
    I have to say, for how little I cared about the soulgrinder, the tzeentchian variant actually looks rather cool in-game. As for the video itself, not much new (ok, the potential flying toggle is really nice, that I'll admit). I gotta say though I'm loving the way the game looks, the map and the skybox look beautiful and I'm really digging Kairos and Miao Ying's animations. Maybe it's just me but the framerate in the trailer wasn't super smooth, so I'm really looking forward to seeing the game run in a polished state in a good PC.

    Yeah, had the same feeling. Are they slowly getting updated?

    EDIT: Never mind. Chaos Knight shields.

    Is it just me or do these Chaos Spawn have a different head?

    *sorry my mistake, they're still the same.

    They definitely look unique!

    It looks like CA worked out the toggle issue for flying. It appears we will be able to toggle flying. The question is- for characters, it units as well? The sky lanterns did seem to be extremely low to the ground at a couple of points in the video. There is not much new info here, but certainly a good extended visual for the information we have received so far.

    I am also sure there are some new nuggets in there too. It just seems like those nuggets are less desired to spot out, especially for new units when we have a good feeling we will get the full roster will be revealed soon.

    *Edit:

    The Kairos and Miao Ying models look awesome. Can’t wait to learn their whole kits.

    Nope


    If you need screenshots in WH2 tell me I will go screenshot a few.
    Question:Presumably you’ve needed to create a huge number of new Daemon units to properly flesh them out and give them their own armies?
    Answer:IR: What you’ve just said is so true,

    Well this was a bit dissapointing. Nothing new really and if this is the Great Bastion battle, I really dont see what is so special about it. It looks like a normal siege battle with Cathayan flavour.
  • BeargodBeargod Registered Users Posts: 92
    Better start splashing the cash on a 3000,- gaming PC considering their own PC's cant handle a 1v1 army battle. 10fps... Also the graphics seem grainy and bad? Otherwise reasonably cool trailer.

    Big news... focus on Tzeentch this week... disgusting lies...
  • ConradToskanConradToskan Registered Users Posts: 304
    That was pretty awesome! Sieges seem to shape up nicely. Well done CA!

    I just wonder, will pink horrors split up into two blue horrors like in the lore? I haven't seen it happening in this battle. I hope they do.

    Well it's a cool vid but what was the big news exactly ?

    We got a lot of news in the last couple of days. I'm honestly surprised how much we got.

    Nice to see the Cathays LLs thunder effects and some off the spells look very impressive, love the clawed hands erupting from the ground.

    Getting a closer look at the demon units they look wonderful, the pink horrors and flamers look crazy fun and I'm also liking soul grinder more.

    why on earth they keep doing closer ups off the repainted spawn and forsaken tho like their some thing new is beyond me, there a real eyesore and get in the way off everything else that's look brilliant.
