Yeah, waiting for the pre-purchase people to tell me if it is good. Apparently, you can still get the Chaos Warriors pack for free if you get it in the first week so make it snappy.

Hah, 60 euro for a game which has around half of the factions which are expected to be present after all the cut content is glued back to the game for 10 bucks per piece. Thanks, I'll pass until some -50% sale comes around, most of the bugs should be fixed by then too.

Holy crap I love this game, so far the AI is solid from my perspective, not as predictable and the garrisons make for tougher sieges and much more protection for your own capital, atm Chaos hordes burn down every single one of my cities except my capital which survives purely thanks to a solid garrison.

I've seen the ai do some strange things too, like moving up to your army but wait for reinforcements or you to attack, not sure if this is intentional but it forced me to make hard decisions about attacking or risk waiting for my own reinforcements to arrive (battles in this game are crazy too, I've not found a solid composition yet, first total war game where I have a mix of all battle victory and defeat types, decisive/phyrric with my main army).

So far I'm very impressed.

So far it's just Warriors of Chaos (and There is good reasoning for their "omission" if CA is speaking the truth and you believe it) Since then there's only been the beastmen added as DLC and they were not "ripped out" so to speak.

really enjoying it. Beastmen are so up my alley with their outmaneuvering and epic infantry flanking it's not even funny. Love 'em.

The fun game. Again, a good idea if you want to kill some time period of your life.

Is there any good players of the Total War Rome: Barbarian Invasion
- I need some help, any good strategy on the maximum difficulty + the start for the West Roman Empire?

What is better - Christianity or the Soulus Incvintus stuff? Christianity have battle priests, but I have doubts that they a helpful... ;/

P.S. Right now I have completed the "Total War: Rome" on the hardest possible difficulty, the start was for a 'green guys with sword on the heraldic' .

Haha Western Rome, all I did was sell almost every building, disband most armies, and form two solid armies led by the highest loyalty generals then I shipped these off to Britain. From there I began to slowly reconquer the old world (though any solid stronghold will do).


As for Warhammer, I just united Bretonnia, Leon dude got consumed by the End Times leaving the remaining five warring kingdoms to unite under me. Kinda would've been better to just form military alliances rather than form confederacies, but it's all roleplay, I'm now in the fourth place on the highest difficulty only the varius chaos factions are stronger.

Useless city states to my south, dwarves holding the mountain passes to my east, and a friggin chaos horde bearing down from the north, I think Altdorf was obliterated as well, Karl Franz looked a little pale last time I spoke to him.

. . .

And the all of that is work on highest difficulty + Western Roman Empire ? O.o
There is a 'deadline', if you will lose to many of your provinces = > game over.
Suddenly I cannot play in "Total War ROme: Barbarian Invasion" right now, and I cannot post a screens right now, but o nthe beggining my strategy was next:

1) Disband some expensive armies.

2) disband from the city-states the expensive and ineffective rulers

3) the fast engage of the central Europe tribes (I forgot the complicated names, there was a Franks, Alli-something, Yazigies, etc..), but the targets was the only certain tribes which is in war with my command state. I have captured their strongholds, then I have left this strongholds (because I cannot hold them for too long, and I never using the 'extermination' option), and it's instantly become a 'Rebellions' which is in continuous war with all factions. So they become somekind of a border-shield for my faction. I managed to destroy few central Europe tribes in that way. They have a truly low protection against the fast assault.

4) I have started to conquer the Great Britain Island  with the army located there, but it is a very hard, when I have captured the village, the AI using the Gold and Diplomat (I never killing the diplomats, so I cannot prevent it ) and taking it back , or an another village from me . This is a really annoying.
For now I have used - 'the sea blockade strategy' , because I want in someway reduce the amount of gold that the GB state have.

5) Christianity/Solvious Incvintius stuff is a real pain , the religious-related conflicts reducing the effectiveness of the whole state . I have a hell no idea what I can do with, I do not like to destroy the religious buildins which is an important for the folks, but I think I have a little choice

For now I have lost the only one little town (rebellion there was) in the West Europe, and only because of my fail. I have managed to stabilize the financial stuff, but religious stuff is tearing apart the whole state this making me mad...

I have a hell no idea about this 'Warhammer' - the pc video game, Warhammer Battle March, i.e. have no such things, and it is a very old and a very fun game, and a very cheap, and low resources, in which I played. (all campaigns + the hardest difficulty possible.) .

Hoooly ****, end times are here boys, everything past the Grey Mountains is smoking rubble (Altdorf is history). Northern Britonnia is gone too, Louen's kingdom just vanished didn;t even see the chaos strike there. Sylvannia is holding up and so are all the Princes. 12 Chaos hordes are making their way into the Grey mountains, this is not going to be a fun winter.

I see you are in your , ahh, in your imagination, so I will be better on my.. .

As for Warhammer Battle March, - there was easy campaign (I mean on the hardest difficulty setting possible) for exception of the one particular mission. The mythology of Warhammer: Battle March itself was a pretty straight and boring so I do not bother myself too hard about such things, nothin' interesting there for myself, but as a game, the Warhammer Battle March is a very cool for me!  



Icons: warhammer

The Rome Total War: Barbarian Invasion is a much more harder on the maximum of difficulty than Warhammer 20k: Battle March, because of stupid religious conflicts addition to the Rome Total War economy stuff.

Of course - the fun emotion is cool, but as for me to obtain it, I must play and create my won fairy-tale in the game, because, as I said, the 'mainstream' usually looks, hmm, little bit not fun for me .

The Warhammer: Battle March is much more fun than the Rome Total War, RTW: Barbarian Invasion, altogether in that case.

P.S. Damn I need to sleep more time, to sleep a less time than I need for and I will damage ma' brain .

So Tsar, what's your thoughts now on the Warhammer version? Btw, I briefly saw a LP about a Mod called Radious? or something like that.
Just curious...looks like it could be quite fun.

Game's pretty great. A bit shallow on the empire building aspect though it's clear that the battles were the main focus this time around.

I recomend it but I'f say you might want to eait until more factions are available. The 6 right now are really varied and unique though so if the lack of some of them doesn't bother you, go for it!

Might become the best TW given time.

I would recommend it as well. The modding community is very active so there's never shortage of content even if you don't buy any DLC (like in my case, save for chaos in the starter pack). Too many hero skill mods are fun but overkill, my Kholek literally solo's armies at least the AI uses the mods too

Ye one of the best Total War games due to a lot of different cool stuff coming together in battles and so many unique factions and units (a lot to look out for and understand). Kiryu mentioned Empire building, it's mostly a revamped version of Attila's build system. I actually really liked it, all the buildings in a region work together (so if you need an armoury for units in city Y, if you build it in city X it works). There's a major downside to this as securing your region is key as you have limited building slots you can't field a decent economy and a decent pool of units without multiple settlements. This is both good and bad, as it requires you to think strategically and plan out settlements, but on higher difficulties everything apart from your capital will be razed over and over again, invaded by 10s of thousands of troops at a time (garrisons in capitols are much better in this so you can turtle with ease, but your minor settlements just can't field strong enough defences).

I mean I was at war with Middleheim as the Empire, I had random hordes rampaging through my lands making me have the cede most of my frontier and just fall back on my capital as the situation was just untenable. It's nice that you have that safety to fall back on, I like that.

So many unique units and mechanics, and personally I'm sold on the new building system, I absolutely hated it in Rome II, but it's done properly here.

Wish Research was a little more impactful, the Chaos ones are fine, but everyone else's is a little lackluster.

Oh and the leveling system for your agents and heroes is so good, with the ability to unlock new sexy mounts as well as a host of other bonuses (most of them are generic buffs to key stats but there's some unique and highly impactful stuff there).

Can't wait for future dlcs, looking forward to Bretonnia (modded the faction into the game, but it's not balanced or a functioning tech or hero tree), and the Elves.

Might make a more comprehensive review.


P.S I always thought chaos was just this horde that swarms over you, but they're really quality over quantity types fielding the strongest infantry types in the game, plus those war chariots are simply beastly. I mean playing as chaos I had to play smart and tactical with a single army just out manoeuvre large stacks and pick the individual enemy armies off one by one. It was nice, but it didn't feel very invasion or swarm like. Guessing you can just spam multiple armies of low tier units and swarm that way, but I find the higher tier Chaos units to be too good to pass up (and you can't really merge armies either since they cause disgusting amounts of attrition when two chaos lords are nearby to one another).
