Topic Subject: How can this game be so different?
posted 12 April 2005 05:39 EDT (US)   
Yes it will have a new campaign probably.. I think a story campaign would be good. But I have never seen a rtw expansion. Only ever played rome..

SO how do you think it will differ from rome total war? Just a few more units, different time era?

I hope they dont upgrade graphics, I dont want to upgrade my graphics card again.

Yeah, i' wondering too?

More units or what, more settelements?

Maybe certain buildings will be more advanced, more micro managment or perhaps the battle system will be greater...cinreased a.i *drools*

I can't wait for it to some out!

Yes I pray to god that the AI is better.. But they wont advertise that will they.

'' New AI, which is better than the last game cos it was crap then! ''

Anyway, we can od a barbarian invasion in rome total war, just do a campaign as britons or Gaul or something. Babarian invasion.

Maybe the campaign will start out already developed, and you play on.. idk .

I do hope they complete the naval battles bit someday through. Outnumbering your enemy ships 2 to 1 and still getting a "Crushing Defeat" aint fun at all.

The british were outnumbered by the spanish armadaa, and they had the biggest naval fleet the world has seen, but the british navy still beat them.

I guess naval battles might be possible, afterall, age of mythology had the titans in its expansion, and they are a big upgrade. I think..

The last expansion for medieval:total war would probably be a good outline for this expasion. It may Add new interface options.
Add to the Ai's code (to make it tougher[and not make it do so many stupid things])
I am preety sure it will not upgrade graphics.(It's an expasion
pack not a new game)
New units(and hopefully a new original skin for the spartans)
New campagin.
New factions are a posibility.
new multiplayer maps are quite posible
that's all I can think of right now.

A new multiplayer alltogether! Ditch Gamespy. Make thier own thing like age of mythology..

Any chance that will happen ?

posted 12 April 2005 09:59 EDT (US)     7 / 21  
No chance what so ever
I hope theres a mixture of all these things: Units, Factions and a few more campaigns not just one big campaign, you know like the Sons_of_mars 1.
I also hope they improve the multiplayer some how.

More like why would they? Who will they turn to, to host RTW mulitplayer?

Maybe Sega can pull something out. Its their baby now.

They could make the multiplayer better by putting the sepparate
team denarii back from medieval

I love to see a map like the one in the "mundus magna" expansion. Except bigger with parts of asia. That would be awesome playing as indians wiht elephants *drools* or the chinese, or sarmations (well their almost exactly the saem as Scythia w/e). And you can't just say make the AI better. Its not like a computer programmer will type that in and like magic it will happen. You will need ot program specific things; like: the AI not charging their general into hoplites, Them picking maxed out peaswants in a game with 1,000,000 (happened to me yesterday), etc...

It will absloutely have new factions in sure. Or else why would they make an expansion thats probally worth 30 bucks.
Alot more ubnits in sure. Better AI, and im sure hopefully more providences, and citys.

ACtually, it might be like the prolouge! Its kinda what the name inplies. "Barbarian Invasion" You maybe start out with the upper left quarter of the map zoomed in or something, and have it like the prolouge like with alof more citys like it had in italy.

Maybe Sega can pull something out.

Let's hope so. If we're lucky we'll get something as good as ESO. Gamespy really needs to be ditched by everybody. Then they'll realize they're doing something wrong, maybe.

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Arrh! GS isnt that bad most games it hosts go well its just RTW that has problems

Yeah Separate Denarii counts or some kind of handicap wouldnt be a bad idea. Oh yeah they could make better Multiplayer maps with wonders or lakes in the background.
Or maybe ruins of a city. More Modes! Like capture the location instead of just Last man and siege. It would be cool if there where more then 2 sides during a siege too! Imaging the chaos!

I think itd be cool to work in more of the Roman civil wars some how.
Like in viking invasion how they put a new campaign entirely in britain, they could make a new campaign map entirely in Rome.
Wattu guys think?
posted 13 April 2005 04:44 EDT (US)     17 / 21  
Yeah! and you could have 4 seprate armies trying to take rome at the same time!

They also should make settlements much, much larger! I think the huge citys should be 3 times bigger.
Instead of having a large town with only a dozen houses.

the british didnt defeat the spanish armada,a storm did.

Yeah more storms, In battles generals could get hit by lighting and stuff! Or navel battles.

actually the ENGLISH since britain was still seperated
force them into the north sea so and english did have a major part in the destruction of the armada

Back to the subject maybe they should have a third campaign
after the fall of rome and you can lead a army threw the dark ages medieval:total war ad this but not quite to the same effect (you could rebuild your nation in like 30 years)
it dosnt have to be big just maybe focus around europe
