    I do hope that things dont quickly disintegrate into constant civil war. I was a bit disturbed how it happened in this video but Im probably wrong.

    Is this area movement? Looks like it; sure hope not.

    They're doing an ETW / ATW combo of combining small towns with big cities on the campaign map.

    So I dont have a link for this, but they did say that there would be some end of campaign threats in the game, like the Normans invading England. Thoughts on this? I think its a better system than Ream Divide in Shogun 2.

    I think they were pretty coy on the question of the Normans per-se but have said multiple different invasion events & combos of them depending on difficulty level & which faction you are.

    Personally not a huge fan, when I'm near the end of a TW campaign the last thing I really want is to start a new epic big war.
    maybe those guys should be doing something more useful...

    Speaking of politics and intrigue, there's some really nice drama going on about Throb. Seems a certain CA marketing employee messed up really badly (twice), something that has generated quite the controversy. Long video, unfortunately legend is not a very talented speaker, but you can get the gist:

    Not the only one I've seen - multiple Total War youtubers are quite unhappy.

    From what I can understand from the controversy, I get both sides. While I definitely understand why CA wouldnt want to give early access to a Youtuber who is critical of the game as the point of giving early access to Youtubers is to drive presales, but I also do think it was terrible how Legend was treated. Very poorly handled and unprofessional.

    Watching that vid there is a missing .
    If you can. In future...
    It was obvious he was supposed to email not discord but thats clearly not the big issue.

    I hate all this 'influencer' bollocks. Always seems to create drama when someone says something critical or has a bit of a hissy fit about percieved sleights & corporates take umbrage.

    Some of the critiques he makes in that email are ones I agree with in general, others not so sure about.
    maybe those guys should be doing something more useful...
