hell yeah! I need to wait for my paypal to fund 1st, then i'm on it. I've never picked up a total war on release, instead waiting for price cuts. the reviews are SO positive for this I have to take the plunge. I've never played any game in the Warhammer realm. which faction do you favor? i'm thinking dwarves.

your mp statement seems to be the general concensus on their forums. hopefully they are listening. I think with tw:arena they may have learned some new things about mp that they can institute.

had a chance to play much of this yet? i'm about 25 turns in so far. its got a pretty good learning curve. my dwarves have been going at it with orcs and goblins every step of the way.
looking at their forum it sounds like the mp has potential. they have a quick match type of play where you get a budget and build your army. they also have a campaign mp that is going to need some work. that could be really fun if they get it right.

this game dominated my playing time over the weekend. its been awhile since I had to force myself to bed out of self preservation, and would have preferred to game all night. it has everything I love about total war, and the fantasy aspects provided by Warhammer make it over the top fun. I am still slugging away with the dwarves, but am looking forward to campaigning as vampire counts and greenskins asap.

Yah been playing loads. Completed an empire campaign - chaos wasn't that hard to defeat! Just started an orc campaign which is interesting.... they are bad for routing at least playing against dwarves who don't... ever... but orcs regroup a lot..

Loving the lords and special characters. A very good addition to total war!

One thing I don't like is the lack of playable factions - started a multiplayer campaign with a mate but we both cant go orcs or any other faction. Despite there being multiple factions within each race... Will maybe have to find a mod somewhere...

that is pretty silly that they limit it so much. i hear that they are adding wood elves as a faction thru free dlc. how does that mp campaign work? easy to save and pick up at a later time? i wouldn't mind trying one with you after i get a little more practice.

The multiplayer campaign works the same as it has previously. Easy saves, easy pick up again after leaving it. Only thing i would say is to not go two factions that are naturally at war ie. Orcs and dwarves as you can only take the same land and you will quickly be at war with each others allies -

we should start one. might take forever to finish, but would be fun just the same. have to use google hangouts, line, or some other app to coordinate when we can be on for a turn or 10.
i'm still a little puzzled about how they limit interaction between races. i know my dwarves can't occupy vampire castles. who'd want to anyways? they are dank, mouldy, and have bats and rats everywhere. i wanted to raize one and it wouldn't give me the option. it just kept saying i couldn't occupy it, and wouldn't let me assault it. so can you only battle vamps in the field of battle, or was i doing something wrong?
