Personally, I rather like it. A few content creators said they did not enjoy it but thought it was really intense and I was constantly having to slow-mo and sometimes pause to select my buffs (heal, ammo, equipment upgrades etc). The music was hype as well for me.
It really did take the life out of my army and they all came back with like 20-40 men in each regiment left, lol. Good job I had high replenishment. Good to know I have some 'veterans of the Chaos realms' in my army now. What horrors they witnessed (I'm Zhao Ming). It felt like a Total War dungeon!
I hope we can have WH1/WH2 races play these battles on custom battle once Immortal Empires hits. Would love to do this mode as the Empire or High Elves.
I'd even love for them to be incorporated into Immortal Empires (toggleable like Chaos invasions for those who don't want them) and for each soul you get, you're given a faction-wide buff rather than progress the Ursun story in WH3's main campaign.
What do you lot like or dislike about them? Would you like to see them as a toggable option for Immortal Empires (like Chao Invasions)?
