    Awesome play through! I know you hate Rome 2 but I really like it and I loved watching Legend and his Spartan hoard.

    i dont see how you 'saved' the campaign. Traded 1 spot for another and thouse enemy armies who took sardinia will catch up. Hope you make a sequel.

    Is Massilia strong or something? Cuz right now every time i do a campaign they end up taking a lot of land including Rome... Was there a patch/buff or what?

    J'espère que vous lisez le français... Quand se produit le bug de l'adoption, vous relancez une sauvegarde de la partie. Cette sauve garde n'est pas la sauvegarde automatique habituelle ! Comment parvenez-vous à programmer une sauvegarde automatique, tour après tour, dans le fichier de sauvegarde "auto_save_legendary.sparta.05052019.193417"?

      Eureka ! C'est une particularité du jeu en "légendaire"... où la sauvegarde manuelle est impossible. Ok ! J'ai compris. Veuillez m'excuser pour le dérangement... ☺

    You should consider trying a DEI Rome 2 saving your disaster campaign, could be a real challenge and obv a lot of the annoying things from vanilla rome 2 arent present.

    Just a guess but the last video did well cuz most of us are tired of the WH content.
    Personally not a fan of the fantasy stuff but I can respect those that are.

    I think you just proved how GOOD auto resolve is in legendary level. It makes the game playable. I only play legendary or very hard for those weak states who simply get squashed by the world on Legendary. Also many of us who have played since Shogun I are tired of the battles themselves and like the strategy. If I want to fight battles these days I play TW Warhammer because there the variety is very fresh and challenging. The other exception are sea battles in my beloved 'Empires' game that you don't like but I LOVE (much more interesting than Napoleon, even if flawed; Simply play certain nations for the best fun ever) Still we agree the best ever TW is MW II + Kingdoms. Can't beat that one and I even do battles there. Variety again making it worth it!

    So why not send that fleet off to do some scouting and let it get destroyed? Perhaps even capturing a settlement and getting money by tearing down the buildings? Just a thought.

    100% No competition, my favourite total war RU-clipr. Your content and creativity is as solid as your skill. But i have to know man, how did you get the AI to be sophisticated enough to have such territory? Ive been using mods since 2015 trying to get them to be as tough as possible.

    You say you don't like playing Rome 2 anymore, but Rome 2 is absolutely your best content. You curse the much when you play it, somehow your getting pissed off with the AIs antics are hilarious, or when you take Syracusae and your mercenaries took most of the damage, disband and "great, fuck off and die". You're not like that as much in other TW games.

  • MisterTonyG

    I'm really enjoying the Rome 2 content. I recently bought Rome 2 along with a decent amount of DLC during the summer sale. Not only are these campaigns entertaining, but I'm learning a lot about the mechanics of the game such as the politics system and how to balance the economy.

  • Nathanael Sallhag Eriksson

    Shouldn't pikemen be super good on legendary, because the AI doesn't bother with flanking around them? So shouldn't any faction with phalanx be superior to any without.

  • Jerkfaceman Jerkfaceman

    Wow this is basically Sparta's worst nightmare being almost entirely destroyed by what was Probably a slave rebellion.

  • GilgameshAurora

    Not a single battle fought this hole episode. Really proves just how fucking stupid auto resolve is. They made a mechanic to make not playing the game more optimal. CA doesn't want you playing their game evidently

  • Jeff Jones

    This is why you fill your armies with plebs and then trigger the civil war. Or that was the strategy the last time I played TWR2. Maybe they've patched that cheese so there can be more than 1 civil war.

    There's a lot I prefer about the warhammers, but I did like the way you could specialise provinces in TWR2. Commerce provinces, mining provinces, food provinces. You didn't need to do it, but it was something to reward the min/maxers that is missing in TWW.

    Dear legend,
    I had subscribed to you very lpng ago. And although I enjoy the content, I feel guilty spending around an hour or longer in a video. Thwrefore, I usually don't watch most of your vids. Thus RU-clip doesn't reccomend you often. When RU-clip does, maybe because of nostalgia for some legend, I sit down and watch the whole thing. This says a lot about the the recommend mechanic. Basically, onnly if a video does well early on, it will be recommended to all subs. And we already know that if a video is doing amazing, it will be recommended to the entire comunity. So, in reference to your point about the last Rome 2 vid, I think the way it works has nothing to do with rome itself, but rather the algorithm trying to replicate the success of the last video with SYDC and Rome 2 as tags.

    In RomeII the politics as a greek state is not that hard.

      I don’t get it. I’ve never had a crash in well over 1,000 hrs. For me it was always the most stable of the TW’s.
      Not the best game, but certainly stable.

      Oh yeah. The reward for mastering the political system is controlling when/where/if secessions happen, having a huge pool of generals who are 100% loyal to you(if they are all part of your family tree, they can never leave to make a new party) and all the buffs that come with big influence and promoted generals.

    @LegendofTotalWar I've found there is no set answer to the dilema's i've had the exact same dilema before answered it the exact same way for 2 different results, i'm not sure if there are better answers than some for some of them than others that have a better chance of a good result, but it does seem to be random success with them

      square shield Month ago +8

      - explanation: kill off parties with bad traits at the start of the game by killing their leaders in battle and provoking them
      - to get more power, just promote and marry your family members, only employ your own family for generals, bribe other parties if you have to
      - and above all else, avoid politics as much as possible, its a waste of time

    I hate Rome 2's autoresolve mechanic where you know the EXACT result because then Legend never has to fight any battles manually and that's what I'm here for :'( So glad they changed that in later games

    • Eren Rager
      Eren Rager Month ago +1

      Even without the showing the result, Legend will use the crap out of it as long as it is broken as it is, and manually resolving is suicide with all the hidden buffs the AI army gets, and even if it was not then like he said before it is more effort with less reward. There is a good reason why he hates the game. Plus the AI is colluding with Legend's PC to sabotage him.
