    The Steam price is straight up weird since it is a lot cheaper over on the Microsoft store when I clicked that link, converted to Euros the Microsoft price is probably 10.99 (Steam shows Euros for me while Microsoft insists on using my native SEK)

    Is it more expensive than a campaign pack for you as well? It is in nok lol.

    For me this costs a little over a campaign pack's cost. This is ridiculous. Is there a new CA tradition to make sure the first DLC is always limping in?

    Needless to say I'll wait for a sale. IE has more than enough content for me, and I've paid for that mode since WH1.
    My optimistic predictions:

    RoC map will get expanded.
    Ind and Khuresh will get added to the game.
    CA will support the game for more than 5 years.

    That price is even more absurd when you remember that this DLC doesn't come with a genuine FLC lord. Belakor's model was already done.

    Be'Lakor model was already done and could use some work because his model has a few bugs and is weirdly low res.

    The price is ridiculous considering that the DLC has only 1 new unit and 0 unique mechanics.

    Its got twice the amount of LLs and 36 units. Reskins or not it wasn't going to be the standard price.

    Rhesus & Memnon had 49 new units and included far more new assets for £7.99. Theres not nearly enough new assets here. I can appreciate LL are expensive but the fact 80% of units assets are already in game, and there's only 1 new skeleton means we shouldn't be paying this much.

    I say this as someone who would have happily paid £15 for truly new models for god marauders, warriors, chosen lords and heroes.

    Price isn't rage worthy, $20 would have been... but it still on the high side and makes me hesitant to buy. I'll have a lot to play with immortal empires, including some of my favorites like undead, skaven, empire. So I think I can wait for a sale. Likely won't write it off completely, but not sure I need it day 1.

    That's historical though, which is even more copypaste.

    It could probably have been £10, but I don't see them releasing this DLC for £7.99

    At the discounted price of 14 dollars, I can probably justify spending on it. Honestly, this might actually be the only DLC where I really have wanted to just sit and wait for a discount. Like when it's down to ten or twelve dollars, it would probably be worth it.

    I've never trusted Steam currency conversion so I have the store set to Euro prices and the Euro price I get matches the dollar price I've seen in screenshots. No idea about the SEK price that Steam has. Epic seems to match the Steam price so it is probably just Microsoft that has gotten things wrong.

    i correct: not worth "in your opinion"
    And it's kind of obvious that it's not worth it in my opinion, how would I be worth someone else's opinion without referencing her?

    But even so, this is not worth it as a whole.

    Really ? 15,99€ / 14,39€ (because 10 porcent preorder)

    CA it's mostly reskins and re-use of base game mechanics. Most of the units should have been there day 1 on monogods roster.

    Honestly I always try to defend them but they are really exagerating there.

    That almost the price of 2 legendary lord in Germany!


    What ?!!

    No new mechanics just one expensive unit


    If they atleast Gave full remodel I could bit overlook it but that is beyond **** l!


    What the hell.!?

    The thing is we only get 1 new unit. 1 new unit and that’s literally it. Don’t fall for the 36 new units statement. It’s a lie and you know that.

    In the case of that DLC the "even more copypaste" claim is straight up false. It has far more new assets for it's units that this DLC. Given that all the new units other than the War Shrines reuses existing skeletons and animations just like the Troy DLC there shoyld not have been a significant difference in the cost of individual units. The only part of Champions of Chaos that is more expensive is the 4LLs.

    It's definitely not the best value for money content CA have produced by a long shot.

    But it's still comparatively cheap for the entertainment value it will give me. So whatever. Vote with your wallet.

    It all adds up to be quite a lot of new assets lets be fair. But is it 60% more than a normal LP to justify the price? Does not seem like it.

    Greedy af price. I might buy it, but it won't be a positive review.

    Why you want to support this kind of practices?? Is not even about the price.. let them charge even 24$ I dont give a ****. Its about the reused assets and selling back those to us what we already own. 0 unique warriors and chosen and 0 unique mechanic for Lords. You have SO MUCH content to play with immortal empires why would you support this?
    Get it on sale when is around 5$ because this is how much this low effort deserves.
  • Surge_2#1464Surge_2#1464 Registered Users Posts: 11,864
    $19 Canadian with the discount. $5 per LL.

    Sure?

    It's really not more copy paste. The models and animations are in game already, and 80 percent of the assets are in game alread. if you bought a historical DLC faction where they just changed the helmets and recoloured the armour you'd be annoyed.

    It'll probably sell well anyway, a Lord Pack containing two nude Dwarfs for twenty quid would be puchased by a lot of the players.

    But it's a bit too much for what it actually contains.

    143~ NOK is the price in norway.

    Maybe its because electricity prices has gone way up since last winter started.

    Eh, disregarding that i feel the price is a little bit too high. Still as someone pointed out, its less than half as cheap than ordering a fresh pizza where i live.

    I don't really know how to conclude my feelings about this, i'll need to see a side by side unit comparison i think.

    According to Steam Global top sellers, it was the 11th most sold if I remember right last time checked.

    EDIT: 7th as of 18:51pm UK time.

    All the new helmets and shields maybe equate to the missing 5 new units we usually get with a LP.

    A normal LP price would be fair for this LP.

    It's cheaper than a campaign pack for me in €.




    More than 4€ cheaper, even more if you wait and buy it from pages like Instant Gaming.

    So while it's more expensive than I thought, isn't by far the worst case scenario.

    Not really. Warriors are mostly retextured helmets, and chosen lords and probably heroes have 2 new helmets, 2 new sheilds and a few new weapons.

    That's about 24 new helmets, 24 sheilds and a few new weapons. Plus one genuinely new unit.
