Well, you can get thousands vs. thousands in one battlefield, ranging from cavalry, artillery and stronk melee units to big battleships. I am not sure if it is better, but surly more variable Cool

I used to like the Total War series but inasmuch the AI is okeish (it tries to flank and uses ranged units and cavalry somewhat decently, although not all the time) in the real time battles, in the grand strategy part of the game the AI is just waaaaaayyyy too disapointing and too easy to beat even in the hardest level where it cheats like fuck.

I did not realize this until I play o real grand strategy title such as EUIII. The difference is abysmal.

Just a thought here.. has there ever been a total war game that was released without major performance issues and/or bugs?

answer: No!

solution: wait a few weeks or your experience will be sullied.

the wait time on turns and all messages to pop up is great for reading newspapers Smile

EDIT: any other opinions? As I searched internet, most RW hardcore players (RTRVII fans as me) are mostly disappointed. So far I have about 10 hours as Iceny under my belt, and after getting 2 provinces, my neighboring nations starts to willingly be part of my confederation (with only little financial motivation needed ... like 1-3k ... and they are mine) ... I just changed to Britain faction in last night. And even neutral factions starts to open for trading agreements (which seems hard to get for other players)

One of the greatest thing about total war is that within weeks someone will have made a mod that alters AI. Before too long harder or more cunning AI will be available

Well, once I saw that there was a ship with a freaking trebuchet on it. I knew that I needed to pick it.
And I did a siege versus Vallu aswell. Picked all kind of siege weapons. Didn't use them, of course.
But they looked just awesome.
