Total War: Warhammer 2


#1101

There’s also a mod that adds a button to the screen that you can click to automatically decline all diplomacy offers. This is quite good for alt-tabbing out during long turn times:

Do you know if it will autodecline joining alliance wars like a comment suggests?


#1103

I don’t know for certain - I don’t usually join alliances. Based on the way it works, it probably does decline them, so if you like to form alliances, probably better to use the other mod.

I have TW2, but have held off diving in because my rig (and especially super old HD) is just not up to the task. Periodically I plan to build a super rig and take several days off work to bask in Warhammer glory. But, so far… I always back down. But someday, yes someday…


#1105

Apparently the battle load times are absolutely ungodly if you don’t have an SSD.


#1106

They can be slow as is (well for me, was) the load game (esp loading an old campaign). Also after you load a pre-existing game it would be slow for me as well. The game is a bit of a hog, but worth it.


#1107

Getting the hang of things and this TW seems to make more sense in terms of how to do/see things with the interface. One thing I find really annoying is the unit dance when they are routed, run across the map, then charge back. Again and again and again. It’s not as bad in a fantasy game as it is in something like Civil War (where this makes the game unplayable for me) but is there a mod that might help to keep the retreats less ridiculous?


#1108

Are you playing skaven? Cuz skaven retreating is by design.


#1109

Nah. Was the high elves and empire. Just the yo-yo effect kind of takes me out of things. It made me shelve some more historical rts games but in Warhammer it’s only kind of silly to see is all.


#1110

I am not all that excited about the new dlc, It might not be all that bad but … ugggh vampires. After trying to get corruption (mechanic) under control for years now… I just can’t be in that camp.

So I recently learned that “Halflings” are actually a Warhammer race. And they live in the moot. The moot that I know is a battle ground . Can’t CA come up with something more interesting than Pirate Vampires?


#1111

Zombie Pirate Ninja Vampires?

With Cadillacs.


#1112

Did CA come up with this, or is it from the Warhammer miniature war game?

Related - it sounds like a lot of fans have been wanting this for a super long time, so while it not be up your particular alley, it sounds like many TW2 fans are super excited.


#1113

A lot of people would have liked Araby, since they have an army list of sorts.


#1114

They are only missing the ninja part then.

I think Warhammer fans get excited about EVERY content patch :)


#1115

I begrudgingly agree… heck it’ll probably be crazy fun anyways.

I’d be curious to know from a Warhammer person what is actually left.

(Brief research uncovers both Araby and Albion. And Kislev I guess too…)


#1116

Dogs of War, Araby (in theory, they never had a book that I know of).

And the stuff out in the East/Chaos Wastes, but that’s for game 3.

Dogs of War is the big one since it’s Tilea/Estalia, their colonies and whatnot.

Kislev has always been on the radar. They even have unique voices in diplomacy, but I’ve always said they’ll come in game 3 as the “Good” faction that’s kind of normal to counteract all the Chaos stuff.


#1117

I am excited just for treasure hunting. Now that I think about it… heck it’s maybe a resource or two short of becoming HOMM.


#1118

I would actually like to see a DLC with a smaller campaign map that crams a ton of factions into a smaller area, but instead of 6 or 8 nations per faction, we get just 1 or 2. Basically Mortal Empires downsized by 75%. In theory, this should speed up turn times a lot but still allow for the insane many-faction craziness. For example, you could add a previously “undiscovered isle” where all the factions have a small beachhead. Like a WH2 Battle Royale. My money is ready.


#1119

Oh Sharpe that does sound good. Toe to toe! All in! I already wrote the check and it will lay it in my foyer envelope when I hear the announcement! (BTW I just lost a Tomb Kings campaign in mortal empires ….)
