    Sounds like it's fixing most of the reasons why I stopped playing Dom 4.

    Awesome!
    More power to the UW folks (which were sorely missing from LA).

    Sounds like very little focus on any single-player content again. It's a shame, because when I got Dominions 4 I thought I'd have a decent smaller campaign to play through at least. While I realize there technically is something like that, it's clearly not the focus of these games.

    downvote me as much as you want, but all those changes seem worthy of a patch, an expansion maybe, definitely not of an entire new game.
    this game needs an INTERFACE total rework, but that would require actual work, it's not like shuffling some numbers around and hoping for the best.

    Real time combat seems like a step forward, as long as it works.

    New population-based recruitment system is logical and all, but it only makes life harder for human nations. Those who actually deploy legions of recruited units. Unless they make it unit-dependent or smth (giant recruits demand more population res than human recruits).

    New fort system was definitely needed. Right now everybody just utilizes basic availiable forts, barely ever building improvements for them.

    Errr..? Why? I mean, what was wrong with the old system?

    B-but that will bring casuls into muh Dominions! :negative:

    Other than that, it's pretty much new content, quirks and rebalance. Which is great.

    GLORY BE!

    Four years ago, same thread, same problem

    "YADDA YADDA YADDA I WANT INTERFACE BECAUSE I WANT INTERFACE"

    Tbh, you are even right, but if you ask me if I prefer them shitting out a somewhat less obtuse interface or MORE NATIONS MORE CHANGES etc, well, I'll take more content every day. I already broke myself to adapt to the interface, plus Dominions is kinda of an easy game to learn compared to hardcore MP experiences.

    In short, I don't care, and will throw money at Illwinter nonetheless. It's not like I have other games to buy.

    Paid patch every four years and plenty of free patches between them. It's ok.

    Oh, come on!
    :negative:

    Then again, maybe it will be like a reverse Therodos? You start on land, but actually want to go into the water because your unit production actually requires it.

    I just want some proper UW in LA that is not R'lyeh. :argh:

    Don't know. Just searched for "lich" from deviantart and it was one of the top hits. Might also have narrowed it down just to digital art category.

    That reminds me that I hope that they improve the messaging system to include some obscene shit like a cursor and the possibility to move said cursor.

    They have a pretty darn effective copy protection scheme, though - much better than Denuvo.
    First, the games are fairly niche. Then, they frequently update and go through the trouble of blacklisting individual keys or even key ranges that are "out in the wild".
    Also, their copy protection works slyly, in CoE4 the game would run just fine and start, but if you ended your first turn, all your units would be wiped and you'd auto-lose the game.
    And there were like 5 scene cracked releases of CoE4, none of which ACTUALLY worked. :lol:
