    I'm not buying BI. Unless EB will use it, that is.

    Yeah i`ve see that already, it`s pitiful."Priests inpire nearby troops to acts of bravery through their prayers' so this priest are going to be 'catholic druids' with the same special ability. Heh, it will look odd if they will pray on the battlefield.......

    i know. i just got back from my 3 week holiday (italian people drive like idiots).
    i saw it, and cried.

    "Will you people stop overreacting? It's one bloody unit for god's sake!"-
    yes, it's one unit. but this is not the only one, and its crap, and it wields a damn CLUB! there ought to be a lot of moddability to compensate it. i swear to god i'll instantly quit my campaign if i see 1 unit of fighting-druid/priests/women.

    Well, in the middle ages (for example at the battle of hastings) priests and monks fought with clubs (because they werent allowed to break the skin or cause bloodshed, and they thought they were being clever by using clubs instead) but the idea of them forming a 'unit' or having a line of priests charge the enemy is a bit ridiculous. Still, I think that given the dark depths of my expectations of BI, it might be surprisingly fun in a stupid sort of way.

    I'll make an army of monks and charge them at a line of orager-chariots firing flaming bombs in the middle of the night.

    It'll be crazy.

    As i said a few weeks ago: wait until it is released, look if you can modify it and then tell everybody else, what you think about it

    Greek_fire19, they fought with maces, not clubs, maces.

    Stop whining. If you don't want to see your priests fighting, keep them behind your men. Priest fighters are much better than priests that just stand there while nasty barbarians hack them to pieces.

    I agree with you completely pal, everyone is saying things like "look at that im not getting BI", "if that it there im nor getting it", one unit which i think is alright isnt goin to spoil a game. Mostr people who are syaing i will not get it, will probably get it. People need to stop overeacting to one little thing that is in the game.

    This is not the Colosseum. Watch your pro-CA vs anti-CA debates.

    As to priests fighting... I think it's not needed to elaborate on that, huh?

    If you don't like the games by CA, just don't buy them, don't play them and shut up.

    Ridiculous units or no, I'm not writing off BI. Despite units like screeching women on the battlefield of RTW the underlying strategy game has provided me with more fun since it's release than any other game. Lack of historical accuracy doesn't ruin a game (like it didn't ruin RTW for me), and for those who think it does, well, at least there are mods like EB to look forward to then.

    Oh, and fighting priest are bloody ridiculous.

    obviously people here like games from CA, though people doing the mods probably though MTW/STW was better. That is the same feeling from most vets. I don't see why we whould shut up. Yes we like totalwar games, but i didnt know we lost our right to an opninion.

    You like fantasy units fine, obviously alot of people here dont. Seing as most of the people who are complaining are probably the same people that have played all the games(at least more than rtw) and have always been there hard-core fanbase. When a game starts changing away from its hardcore fans the fans get mad. What do you expect. Im sure CA expected the reaction, but they were just trying to make RTW mainstream.

    well, when i bought rtw i was a complete ca-ignoramus. i liked/loved the game. had a great time for 3 weeks, started reading about teh period, started rtr. and suddenly rtw flaw became apparent. just as CA's behavior towards history. but still, the only reason why I would buy BI is if EB is getting it. until EB-1.0 i'll play other games/ check otu rtr 6.0 ( i know i'm having a laugh over them, but not about their modding skills)

    I was wondering why did they include the Priests and Imams to Christian and Muslim armies in MTW? Why did they wait so longer to add priests to RTW? Strange isn't it?

    I hate that fantasy unhistoric units. It's like fy in our soups. They're ruining the historic ambience of any TW game. Moaning German chicks, groaning druids. What shall make next time i'm really dying while i'm waiting any awesome surprises.

    Maybe a Sassanid harem girl band?

    LOL
    but I don't think that will be included since it wouldn't be ahistorical enough perhaps some nice smeg legions or some bartix hoplitix
