Agreed, it’s a UI fail that it’s such a difficult option to find. UIs are like jokes, if you have to explain them then they aren’t good.
I also agree on the new horde tax, it’s definitely a pain with horde faction. That’s why giving the new horde to an experienced leader who will grow it fast is pretty important. The sooner those -upkeep buildings can be built the better. Though honestly late game horde factions should expect to have hugely negative budget every turn and be making it up with cash with sacking/razing/fighting.
I didn’t have access to Gotrek and Felix when I started a game after the patch that introduced them, but I still had the event trigger that made them available and I foolishly walked a unit onto the event thinking that the event was QA’d. All was well until the next timed event with them fired and my game promptly crashed. The answer from CA was to wait until G&F became available for everyone.
If I had just finished playing Warhammer Total War (almost all factions, but Von Carstein was the best) and I admit that the game got a little bored. So if I buy Warhammer Total War 2 right away, will I still be bored? Is it more of the same (I like this game)?
That depends entirely on what you are growing tired of doing? Playing out the real-time battles? Because the battles are the same but with different units (generally). Moving the armies and agents around on the campaign map? Because that’s also the same. Building up your cities to upgrade infrastructure and research new bonuses and tech? Same once again. But the sequel has a better campaign, and the Mortal Empires campaign is very cool and… sprawling. But again, it depends on what you are getting bored by.
