    She doesn't benefit enough from spreading corruption, sure it's an innate defensive mechanicism in a way but she only has a unique building that negates its maluses, although that unique building strong as well, you get it from confederation. In general Morathi looks very good to confederate with, as you can directly inherit her bonuses, which are more material and in the game.

    I think I will just start with Malekith after all. Plus, unless CA tweaked rebellions, I would think you could farm rebellions for slaves with Malekith, which in turn can create more rebellions to farm.

    It's interesting in that the Dark Elves have to keep their most powerful lords occupied within their own lands. You'd have to go out of your way to use them in other parts of the maps.

    Her skill tree is looks amazing. -30% upkeep all units, shit-ton of army wide bonuses like ward save which means you won't have to be married to a specific unit type.

    It's good. CA improved what was to improved and didn't touch what was working all right. They even brought back good stuff from before. Ov course empire management is still retarded but this is what we have since R2TW (Attila was a nice try but didnt receive enough love to achieve anything). So, I'd say, yes, you can waste your time trying to pirate it.

    I don't know about you guys but I think these type of battlegrounds are massive improvement over the borefest that was the first game with little to no features and arena-style open fields with few hills here and there.

    Heavy forests can kiss my ass. How am I supposed to mass artillery and missile infantry with 4 or 5 widely spread infantry to cover them when there's all those trees blocking my shots?

    What happened with the old factions, did they get any new units?

    Also, as far as I understood - you can only use old factions in custom battles, but do they appear as npcs in campaign?

    Cant use original factions in custom matches either, but they are in the campaign.

    What about multiplayer? I was sure there was something about "if you own 1st game, you unlock old factions".

    Yep. Thankfully the map had a big fat choke point and the AI derped around somewhat but they still managed to rip apart my blessed Carnosaur.

    I was excited to jump into this.

    And then my computer died :negative:. It served me faithfully for almost six years.

    Time to replace it with a newer, more shiny model with bigger tits and less wrinkles and feel good about it!

    This time I just bought a ready computer. I just do not have the time or the will to build one at the moment.

    Visit web store #11, do research, buy PC, get it delivered. Done. This also includes the option to let it assemble for you - but I don't really like that, pre-assembled machines are usually cheaper if you don't buy the first one you see.
    Some people actually value their time and don't want to waste it playing Lego with hardware.
    Except if doing that is for some reason fun to you, of course. But for all others - why should they?

    I've played the shit out of this game over the last 24 hours, or so. Probably more than is healthy. Thank god for understanding wives...

    Anyway, for those interested in having a crack:

    The High Elves are easy mode with Tyrion. He starts in a very safe position, which lets you approach the campaign however you want to. The only enemies you have are those you decide to have, with the possible exception of Caledor. Ulthuan, once conquered/confederated is super wealthy and super defensible. Great starter faction.

    Next down the list are the Lizardmen - Mazdamundi, in particular. His capital has gold deposits, which helps defuse the early game money squeeze. Around said capital you have a constellation of settlements (six, if I remember correctly) within 1-1.5 turns distance. Take your pick and have a good time, because things won't get hard for a while. That said, eventually there'll be some overstretch and the distances start to get onerous. You have to keep an eye on both the north and the south - and the latter will be a slog if the Skaven have been successful against the minors.

    Skaven and Dark Elves are the more challenging factions to play. The former primarily due to their incredibly shitty initial troops and the extent to which auto-resolve isn't going to like you. The latter mainly because of an awkward starting position. Malekith, for example, is being nudged by the game to go west (Altar of Darkness etc) - but is way better off not getting tied down to a province that will need to have its hand held for a long, long time. Ghond or bust, in other words. And enemies are everywhere. The Mung/Aghol will come from the north, the east an the west, while Beastmen and even HE will be making house calls. Your fellow Druchii like you quite a lot, but you need to go to war with them early and often to secure an economic base. Oh, and I don't like the loyalty mechanic.

    On the other hand, the DE roster is amazing. Darkshards are very nice (AP crossbows that don't need direct line of sight?), while Hydra + Black Dragon > Sun/Moon/Star Dragon, Giant Eagle and Frost/Fire Phoenix. And they've got two major advantages over the HE. Firstly, they've actually got AP cavalry (and very good AP cavalry, at that). Secondly, they've also got versatile medium infantry in Corsairs, Shades and Witches. While the top tier infantry are basically analogues of one another, there are about six DE infantry variants in that middle tier, compared with the HE's... White Lions of Chrace. That's it. Yes, you could count the Lothern Sea Guard (which I love, deeply), but they're essentially slightly upgraded Spearmen, who can shoot a bow. Only the White Lions qualify for that 70-90 armor medium infantry role on the HE roster.
