From there I think even if you fall behind you can catch up fairly easy
Just hearing this makes me feel better. Thanks!
Dino's were quite fun if you like to get offensive and rush opponents, but were really hard for me to get used to since they had no good archers and I like to sit in a bit more defensive posture and let the opponent come to me, whereas the high elves were amazing for this play style
Elves it is, then. I can learn to rush but it goes against my instincts.
Total Wahammer is by far my favorite of the Total War games and apparently is for a lot of other people since they keep putting out expansions.
I really want to play TW:Warhammer 2 some more, its been sitting in my library for quite some time. But it's just so freaking huge. I'd have to play for weeks to get any good at the early game, then I'd discover that other teams are way ahead and I'd have to start over and learn how to level up twice as fast.
I had a similar problem with HOMM3. But at least HOMM3 was organized into a campaign of smaller maps. TW:W2 just gives you this enormous world and a huge quest with lots of pieces that I have no hope of ever achieving..
Maybe I should just run some individual battles, stay away from the campaign?
Good game. I never got good enough at managing traffic that I could level up my cities to afford the higher tiers of goodies. But I had a good time with it for a couple weeks. I may go back to it next time I have a SimCity itch.
If you get C:S, there's a great mod for it that let's you click on a vehicle for the camera to chase. The ground-level detail is so good.
