I'm not really the kind of guy to pre-order a bunch of expensive stuff xD I pre-ordered the edition of Dark Souls that came in the metal case with the soundtrack but that's it xD Even when I pre-ordered Destiny I didn't get anything big, just the one that gives you a few little cosmetic things.

Well, the King's Edition has stuff I'll actually enjoy. I still have that giant Master Chief helmet. heh
Greenskin campaign map.
Also.... Bretonian and Vampire Counts cameo.
The map looks really good!
Savage Orc Boar riders.
Yeah, I forgot to post that.
So i just learn, due to the lore of Warhammer Fantasy, players cannot conquer the entire map (eg. Have the Empire rule and conquer the Old World).
Not a challenge. The game will prevent you from doing it. Because reasons.
If we can't do it Vanilla then mods will!
So you can rename your non-legendary heroes. I can see many people are gonna give silly or disturbing names for their characters.
Greenskins VS Bretonnians.
Don't fuck it up Creative Assembly!
I'm sorry to say this, but I fear they already did. Cutting the game into pieces just to sell later. Warhammer is the only Total War game that has only 4 factions at launch, not even Rome 2 did this crap. The DLC factions cannot be as sophisticated as the main factions, unless they are releasing them in expansion packs, which means more money for us to burn. If you really want this to be great, buy base Warhammer, delete it, download pirated Warhammer with full DL Cs then enjoy it. You already buy the game with full price, they can't just hold back core factions to make a bit more like this
Warhammer didn't have minor factions and tribes like Rome II did. There are like 10 factions or so, so shut up.
Making Chaos pre-order DLC crossed a line, I'm not giving CA my money after that stunt. And no way am I pre-ordering this after the Rome 2 disaster. The game having so few factions is even less of a reason to nickle and dime us.
The problem with factions in Warhams as opposed to every other TW game that's ever existed is that every new faction needs to behave differently, have different skeletons and different rigs.
The only faction where they can use the same 'general' model just with new textures like they can in other TW games is maybe Bretonnia because their roster is 90% human, but even then there's stuff like Pegasus Knights.
I can do without High Elves, Dark Elves, Tomb King, Araby, Nippon, Lizardman, but Chaos is responsible for much of the conflict in the setting, they can't make them a DLC, not even a full expansion pack can do them any justice. I cannot bring myself to accept the fact that Bretonnia, Wood Elves, Skaven are not available as well. They are all play a major role in the Old world. I would rather play Call Of Warhammer. They put more effort in it for free than CA do with pay
Call of Warhammer is also a broken, buggy mess with no sense of balance.
And the Wood Elves and Skaven aren't in the game because it would take too long/be too costly to include more factions at the level of detail CA is putting in. They'll be arriving in the second game.
And assuming that the Chaos faction is Chaos Warriors, I'm not so chuffed that they're 'just' an optional faction. My guess is they're going to introduce daemons when they do Total War: Elves.

I am not talking about the overall quality of Call Of Warhammer, I am talking about the sheer amount of effort they are putting into it for free. CA get pay to do this, yet they still pay less effort than someone who does it for free. They make a much better Warhammer without budget than CA with millions of dollar.
More of the Dwarves gameplay are shown including the Book of Grudges mechanic.
Really the only thing I'm mad about here is that apparently, for now, you can't expand beyond your race's historic borders.
Did we play the same Call of Warhammer? I played an unbalanced, poorly optimized, buggy, hilarious mess whose only redeeming feature was being set in the Warhammer universe, in an engine that clearly didn't support the kind of gameplay they were going for and with models that looked painted-on a basic human rig when they weren't janky, flailing muppets.
Sure, they put in a lot of effort, but the presentation was...lacklustre.

Perhaps so, I am playing the latest version. But that is irrelevant, I recognize the effort, not the result of those people. They are not professional programmers, just modders. They can only do so much, Warhammer is too big a world. If you find it unbearable, I suggest you just give CA your money even after you just did and
play the big game. A buggy mod can do more justice to Warhammer than a big game that is cut into pieces, keep that in mind.
