I don't know if ya'll have seen it but the Mortal Empires start for Nakai has been revealed.
He starts in Albion!◊
Wow, Norsca is totally fucked.
You mean they aren't already, what with everyone and their mother colonising the place with no regard for climate or Chaos corruption?
Even more then.
Does albion in the game is before shadow over albion or after?.
Seriously, I hate the climate system. It just makes everything annoying, especially when you play as Chaos. No matter how many settlements you raze everyone and their mother just wants to colonize everything.
That sounds understandably frustrating, one thing that may please you is that Nakai's horde faction automatically populates the cities it conquers with a Lizardman vassal. So instead of having the cities you raze get rapidly re-colonized, there will be a vassal to hold them for you.
I'm not sure if such a feature would fit for Warriors of Chaos or Beastmen but it definitely sounds cool.
On one side I like it because I want to play a game where I conquer the entire world someday, but on the other I can understand how awful it is when there are just so many factions colonizing everything when your job is to destroy the world.
I haven't played enough Warhammer 2 to form a very strong opinion about it but I think I'd much prefer the Climate system to Regional occupation.
Sure, Regional occupation wasn't bad but it was kind of... aggravating. Like, when I was playing Vampire Counts and I wanted to occupy the nearby Dwarven holds but couldn't. I understood why that was but it still felt annoying.
The Climate system seems much more open-ended and free-er, though I generally don't play horde factions so I imagine my perspective is skewed.
I honestly preferred the Regional Occupation.
My issue with regional occupation was that it often caused holes in the middle of my empire's map - and as a long-time Paradox player I'm deeply aggravated by anything resembling border gore.
Caused holes in what way?
In the sense that his empire isn't one continuous entity, but instead a bunch of "islands" divided by Dwarf territories. It's really annoying defending your borders that way.
It also looks terrible.
Meet the old friends
Well, I didn't expect Gotrek & Felix - and Gotrek's voiced by BRIAN BLESSED.

What's with the screaming on Toddbringer in those patch notes. 0_0
Also it's really sweet how they directly address modders in their messages at the end of the patch notes.

This might shed some light.
CA keeps up with memes I didn't even know existed.
The swearing is also entirely lore-appropriate since Helstorm Rockets were named after Todbringer cursing up a storm at a crew who nearly hit him with a barrage.
Why isn't that guy a legendary lord yet?! Why don't we have a lord whose every line is punctuated by constant swearing! Make it happen already, CA!
I feel weird about those patches and expansions. Makes me hesitate to play seriously when I know that new content will be added eventually, but I'll have missed the experience of playing with that content (even though I can clearly play both before and after that content has been added and experience the difference directly).
Is it weird? I'm sure it's weird.
Same applies to me, kinda hard to play a strategy game when you know new expansion is soon out :D
Gotrex and Felix are finally coming to Total War Warhammer. And Gotrex is voiced by BRIAN BLESSED!
You're about ten posts too late, but BRIAN BLESSED is always worth repeating loudly.
So, has anyone else seen Nakai's charge animation? Because that's one happy as heck Kroxigor.
