A poll for science - Do you actually care about Blood pack ?

This might be the only thing I've never understood in this forum. The absolute paramount hype for blood pack. The dramas it creates. The deceptions it leads to. The joy it provides.

Now the people needs to know :

    Blood and dismemberments add to the immersion.

    I'm glad there is a slider though, in previous games the effects were over the top.

    i like the dismemberment and additional combat animations of the blood pack.

    the blood itself is not important and i will dial it down quite a lot, thank god for sliders.

    Though I don’t think it should be separate or cost money. Blood should be in base game. But whatever. It’s here at this point.

    I dont care about the blood DLC as it is, it should be part of the base game (yes, I know about the +18 blahblahblah, I dont care), but if they make it DLC they could at least make it worth it with new animations or something, specially in this game there is a lot of potential for different types of death animations.

    Nope.

    If it was a built in feature (and didn't look like everyone in battle was a bag of jam) I'd have it turned on, but I'm not paying for it.

    Why wouldn't I care about something that improved the game? I haven't touched Khorne yet because of the lack of Blood DLC.

    I care about it IF they've toned it down and fixed performance.

    I LIKE blood in Total War games. It adds to atmosphere and immersion.

    I do NOT like the way blood has been handled in this trilogy.

    I like something that slowly builds over the course of a battle so you can see a lone blood soaked unit and know they've really been through the ringer and performed well for you as opposed to another unit that only did some flanking here and there. I like something that BLENDS IN to the cloth and textures of the unit so I can still the faded and warped colors of what my unit looks like, with the blood alongside its chainmail.

    Now it's: Oh did two units tickle each other for 5 seconds? BUCKETS OF KETCHUP! MINUS 15-20 FPS! Woot! And we're covering it like a coat of paint! Replacing the textures! No blending! Blending is for noobs! Rawr! This is instant gratification anime blood and you're gonna like it! Ughhhh!

    ^I hate that version of blood and leave it turned off. It's cartoony and over the top and stupid.

    But I'm not opposed to blood in principle. I've just been waiting for it to be handled correctly.

    I hope! this slider is a step in the right direction. But I'm skeptical.

    The hitbox and collision issues are masked by the blood.

    It's jarring to not have blood.

    Have yet to buy a blood pack for any TW game but with the intro of the slider and since I only have to buy 1 pack for WH3 I am considering this one.

    Previoustly the blood packs were cartonnishly over the top stupid. Bloodless battles are a bit weird but worse was the lakes of blood after a handful of deaths. Bodies can bleed alot but when completely exsanguinated they are not going to create a blood lake unless it is literally several thousands whose volume would fill the lake thrice over if the bodies were still alive.

    If the blood was more like medieval 2 I would have bought it by now.

    I hate the way it was implemented in wh1 and 2 so I won't be buying until I'm sure it looks good.

    Well… does it improve the game? I would personally say no.

    I bought it for part 1 and uninstalled it. For part 2 installed and then removed - hope slider makes blood looking organic and not just repaint models red.

    I have the prior blood pack and leave it off because it is comically bad. I don't anticipate ever turning it on in WH3.
  • OmegaJak#7170OmegaJak#7170 Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 310
    'Care' is probably the wrong word. I've already got it, and I'm glad because it looks good if you turn it down a bit (I used a mod to reduce it in TWW2) and there's going to be an option to do that this time in-game.

    I think it looks better with blood, less cartoony in a way (even if the blood is exaggerated and unrealistic). Also I like the grittiness in total war, seing streets filled with corpses add to the feeling and stakes of the battles, and the blood is part of that. Especially in Warhammer that gritiness is important, as it is a big part of the feel of the setting.

    It changes battles from bad acting competitions where everyone simply throw themselves to ground into actual bloody battlefields, so yes, it's an improvement, specially now that you can customise how much blood you want.

    I did buy it a long time ago, to support the game, but that's not something I care that much, especially when it was "too much" effects. If there is a slider it would be perfect for me, to turn it a bit.

    what do you mean explain? It's a visual spectacle that's included for free in most other games. To my knowledge this is the only game where you have to literally pay for blood effects.
    Request scorched body textures, and fire death effects. At least 30% of all damage in this game comes from fire sources. Request Fire for the Fire God DLC.

    In my experience, turn-based strategy games have never really gone to the effort of making blood and gore a part of the experience.

    This but only because CA has done it so poorly.

    I like blood and gore in my games a lot (Fallout etc)
    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.
