thats why you cover you mouth, for that exact reason
Is there any point to go beyond assigned worker of 4? It seems like the efficiency drops around that point and you're better off making a new structure. Not to mention that your most important resource, food, is bottleneck to the field which is hardset to only 2 workers.
I guess you can dump the unemployed as emergency labour force if you need a type of resource fast, but I don't think you're ever that dire of a particular resource in this game.

Between empires has cool sieges
if its not vanillalike its not worth playing when it comes to bandit levels
except VC that gets a free pass
Dw I kid, overpowered bandits have a pretty bad effect on the economy which in turn just makes noble armies weaker. It's just poorly thought out by modders who want to present a challenge without thinking of the consequences it has to general gameplay.
wait I actually have to be a dick and sack villages in warband to win? :(
No, but it's easier that way

Asked about this in TG in the Warhammer fantasy thread and no one engaged. I get that everyone hates Total War Warhammer and shits on anyone who brings it up (though not sure why - it’s a solid game and revived square bases at Games Workshop).

Has anyone tried it? It’s free to play. I’ve been kicking around on it and am absolutely in love with what the dev did here. Not only is it by far the best adaptation of Warhammer fantasy to the PC, it’s a solid game with a beautiful UI and plays well.

Would love to hear opinions and thoughts on this one.

how much?
like 20 or 30k, new patch shows all the modifiers after the game
20 or 30k? is that a typo? last time i played the game hiring a squad cost like 300 gold, with 20k you can recruit every unit and item in a single playthrough
yeah sorry the k was a typo
All this guy has to do is create a campaign map and I'm all over this game.

flip here, there was a war between Spain occupation Philippines vs moro locals like Sulu and Brunei, Spain brought in flip natives, mexicans and other south americans against ottoman reinforcements, so uhh I think Janissaries fought Tlaxcaltec if that's cool enough of a concept
they would have to get naval combat right which no company seems to be capable of
If you actually can enjoy CK3, then I suggest Rajas of Asia. Their team did a shit load of research, no game else comes close

There was no grit to RA3 because EA is somehow so stupid that they didn't understand that the entire setting of RA is a tribute to 50s sci fi and instead interpreted everything as just XD random quirkiness. How else would you get flying anime girls, gundam mechs and this shit?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrQLmeknYo0

God punished RTS players for in their decadence they defecated on RA3, AoE3 and DoW2
Now they experience their Dark Ages until they learn humility again
>why is the wacky rts game wacky? THIS IS A FUCKING OUTRAGE
Nah, it was WC3 and the dota queers that killed the RTS.
I'm not a fan of RA3 at all, but I'd say they were following the trend set by Yuri's Revenge. As much fun as I had with YR, the story went full retard, and the RA universe was doomed the second they brought back time travel in that opening mission. Although I do enjoy the allusions to it in Mental Omega

>play meme focuses on
>get memed on
Historical focuses get boring after a while because shit's always the same. Fighting the Germans over Europe is the best part of the game but right now things are so ally-skewed that it's hardly a fight. Playing as axis is either trivial because the UK is so easy to cheese, or mind-numbing because invading north america is cancer and the continent sucks to fight in.

Whenever i see new city builder released it gets called Banished clone, Is it really the king of city builders?
19 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>It would be like if people called every new RTS game a Dune II clone
People call every new RTS a SC2 clone, so it's close.
Which is the best?
Fpbp, but to add onto it a bit more Banished is a really shallow game and was incredibly cheap to make. So other devs feel tempted to tap into the market because it poses very little risks. Also calling it a city builder is misleading considering that the game can't even handle more than a couple hundred people before becoming unstable.
Impression City Builders are more or less a separate genre compared to Banished. Completely different mechanics and completely different gameplay loop, the only thing similar about them is you place down buildings.
these "new city builders" dont have anything new in their core gameplay.

Should I buy the Astral Planes DLC for Stellaris? Is it worth it?
457 replies and 72 images omitted. Click here to view.
Honestly as far as crises go, "get FE tech" is about as lame as it gets. None of it feels particularly special when you already get limitless free FE ships with an artifact.
Mods. Not chasing le difficulty meme. Using it as a glorified story generator. Lots of things to do in Stellaris.
Except with Cosmo, you can actually design those FE ships to not use shit weapons.
Oh boy now I can PLAY META whoopie
are you guys going to buy the new DLC?

You could have pulled a nasty trick and put the Penultimo with the hat on the left.
Never played 6, 4 is the best for the dialogue.

5 (and 4: Modern Times) had the writing go down the pan. Oh boy, a Bioshock reference!

I can't find any voice line videos of 6 on YouTube to tell me if Miss Pineapple being replaced by a strong and independent femcel of colour, is as bad as it looks. The caricatures look stiff, unfinished, and 5 years after launch, are still not all uploaded on the wiki.

Job/resource production penalty does not effect trade or amenities output, and trade can be used to print free consumer goods, unity and energy (all at the same time if in a trade league). This can allow you to put your pops on something like Chemical Bliss and lose no income of those 3 things. Combine this with introverted civics (such as inward perfection) and robots (or maybe a slave species) to work the manual labour jobs, and you can have your entire empire be neets making bank on the stock market whilst others do the heavy lifting. Bonus if you take catalytic converters civic so you only need traders and farmers to power your entire economy, and thus achieve total self-sufficiency.
i thought i bought stellaris, turns out it was starbound lol. Im looking to see if theres new fun games to play but sounds like this isnt one of them lol.
honestly you could probably modify the base files so the fancy Fallen Empire buildings are available to build, then set your pops to chemical bliss living standards. Alternatively you could also code autism a hedonist job-type for your pops to avoid authoritarians malding that you don't have everyone living in slums.
the authoritarian faction is happy with the stratification check if you have a slave population that isn't your main species, though I'm not sure if this applies to robot servants
Only problem is that I dont have a chemical bliss civic or origin so I can start with it. Im using EnC Classic with traits mods and the closest civic would be Pleasure Seekers or Corporate Hedonism but I really want to have a NEET empire.
I dont use the authoritarian ethic, so I don’t really have to worry about them

Pikes > spears > swords.
Man, post your army composition. I always use pikes and swords, but I would like to use hoplites too. The problem is pikes>spears, and that's a shame.
Also, does somebody use skirmish cavalry?

It is indeed Arche Bosphorous. Macedon just took a settlement in anatolia and Hayk liberated Antheia
thanks, Bactria are a pretty easy faction with the army roster and the amount of resources they sit on. As you can see the orange blob is now removed. I'm going to prepare to take out the Daha and Parthian alliance
Here you go. I tend to favour a good number of hoplites with 2 units of shock infantry, cataphracts and horse archers. I don't like using elephants, and rarely use seige artilery.

Last thread was live for 6+ months, with anons posting quality content and good advice for those struggling with command, let's try that again shall we?
New DLC dropped, set in September 1941 and features windmills and oil rigs as well as a rather weird Sunday release date.
It's been over a month since the operational phase update release, so there should be plenty of opinions to share.
As usual, share your victories, defeats, rants and stuff you struggle with, so helpful anons can lend a hand.

I don't mind the toyish artstyle, if it was a toyish game. I think that it would have been even funnier if it had a Toy Story/Re-volt vibe going on. Like they were fighting inside a room, on the garden, on a sandbox and so on. At least it would have matched the style and would have been original.
worse. it's Warcraft + Starcraft + Diablo + Overwatch

This game is a complete failure to understand whats wrong with the "genre".

No regard to the rts-s community? Did you read the names on the balance team? Magic, Mista, Brick, Nemesis, Lorenzo, I think Kyomaku was in there too. The game was a mess, but mistakes were made also on the balance side by voobly players.
I'm not saying that RTS-sanc community are victims. I'm telling you that after ESO shutdown, there was always something that made the community split when everyone should have moved to EE.
Kinda makes me realize how fanatical the AoE2 fanbase is overall. I mean it's still not as big as Starcraft per say, but at the same time Microsoft doesn't give damn shit compared to Bobby & Blizzard in everything.
What are you talking about? AoE2s playerbase has long since eclipsed SC
Microsoft has been very cautious trying not to anger the fanbase too bad but it's not working.
