      I played a few campaigns, and tried a few others. I'll wait for now that Immortal Empires comes out of the beta and Chaos Dorfs are added into the game. And hopefully the realms of chaos mechanic in some way, because I want to explore them for exploring's sake.

      I did. I achieved both short and long victory and was like 20 settlements away from domination victory, but my save file got fucked up and resulted in CTD each time I tried to load it.

      I also finished Nurgle campaign all the way up to domination victory. It was kinda hilarious to spread AIDS to half of the whole planet.

    It literally doesn't matter which faction or on hat difficulty because the AI will never attack capitals, it's basically hard programmed to run around fucking with minor settlements which you don't own so it will basically never attack you.

      this. WoC is basically a tutorial faction right now. You can learn all the major mechanics and have fun. And it's also one of the few factions where auto resolve isn't as bad and you don't have to autistically play every battle to keep the momentum going

    Prologue. Its a really enjoyable mini campaign and unlike anything else in tw.

    Khorne is pretty simple. If you want an easy starting faction. No range, so you don't need to fear cav fucking you. And your melee frontline is also your dps. They end up with insane stats that rival lords and they have shields, so most ranged will barely do any damage to you.
    You might have to play battles on higher speed tho.

    As said before, play the tutorial campaign with Yuri. It's one of the better onboarding processes in the series.

    Assuming you have zero DLC, play Khorne for right click action or Cathay if you want some combined arms stuff. Kislev can also do this but Cathay's campaign map gimmick is less likely to bite you for fucking up. (Balance yin/yang, use the compass for what you need, send caravans)

      For IE, yes. You unlock the base races and LL s for each Warhammer game. You do not get access to DLC factions or leaders, but they will be present on the map doing their own thing.

      Race updates and QoL are free, so you're mostly playing for new units, lords, and any special mechanics

        • 2 months ago
          Anonymous

          The system is the same, but all Dwarf factions start with 3 relatively severe grudges relevant to their faction now which can be difficult to complete in a timely manner. So you are going to be stuck with a pretty high grudge value for a good while. Still fun to play though and makes removing them pretty satisfying.

          • 2 months ago
            Anonymous

            It isn't the same, Dwarfs had those 4 grudges in WH2 since runes rework, in WH3 CA fucked up severity scale modifier, which determines how fast severity grows for a different types of grudges, and since your 4 grudges are the highest type of them they growth very fast reaching severity 20 by turn 10 if I not mistaken. What really fucking baffles me is that morons at CA can't just fix the formula responsible for that and deploy the fix as fast as possible. No, these gays have a shitty spaghetti code since fucking Attila and even if they fixed it by now they're waiting to deploy fixes in a fucking bundles.

              Anonymous

              Realistically they just need to drop them from severity 10 to severity 5 and it would be fine. Though having that severity does bring in a lot of Slayers which is a benefit.

              • 2 months ago
                Anonymous

                Slayers are fun and all, but they really are an unit you disband right afterwards unless you play slayer king, but you need obedience more in an early game than late one, especially for dwarfs, since low obedience plummets your already weakest in the game growth rate. Your suggestion to bring them to 5 just delays the growth, since they always add +5, this will still fuck up Thorek with his 7-8 grudges like that

        • 2 months ago
          Anonymous

          Not as bad as that anon makes it out to be. The grudge severity is not that impactfull (outiside of research), but you do start out with maxed out grudge and getting rid of some of the grudges is near impossible early on since it wants you to go across the whole goddamn map.

      It was the same with WH1 and WH2, they both had rough launches and people forgot about them until they started getting updates. WH3 will stay the same until Inmortal Empires leaves beta status and critical races like Chaos Dwarfs get in the game.

                I would say they are better than the old sieges. Now they actually feel like a siege, and a lot of maps are really good. However half the maps are utter shit, and unwalled settlements ending up in sieges as well sucks. And having a single model in a whole squad getting stuck on a wall somewhere and thus invalidating all your commands just pisses me off.

    Why does nobody on Ganker play multiplayer? Domination is unironically super fun right now, and it's surprisingly well balanced with a few exceptions like OP Slaanesh and Warriors of Chaos (mostly because WoC gets Slaanesh units), and a few underperformers like Nurgle or really annoying factions like Sled spam Kislev.
    The biggest issue is that Land Battles (which suck ass) are in the same queue as Domination.

        So am I. Dwarfs are a solid B+ in Domination. You get cucked on the Grove of Slaughter map because of LoS though. Dwarfs are pretty good against every faction that isn't Khorne. It's pretty common to see me getting 3k+ value out of an Organ Gun unit against some factions.

    I've never seen anyone complain about it but I fucking hate the AI. No, not the AI you're thinking of, I hate whatever insane monolith governs how individual models within a unit move and are targeted.

    >Attack a unit with a SEM, he scatters them like bowling pins and then turns to attack the one fucking guy in the corner while the rest of his unit reforms behind him and resumes their business
    >Chase down a routing unit, they instantly flee in every single direction making it completely impossible to shatter them before they reform and come sprinting right back in with 40 leadership as if fucking clanrats with 26 models left can DEFINITELY take that fight against chaos warriors if they just have one more try at it
    >Try to surround an enemy SEM with halberdiers, he just glides through them like they're not even there because the AI is spamming 16 million right clicks per second. Meanwhile if my SEM's little toe comes within five fucking feet of a bad matchup when I've ordered it to attack something else it turns and locks itself into a battle to the death unless I constantly tardwrangle it
    >If I flank and attack enemy archers they easily escape me by just running in the opposite direction and I can't do anything about it, if my archers or cav get attacked then the AI micros each individual model in its unit to have them completely wrap around and make escape impossible

      I feel you. And it especially frustrating in small settlements, where shitty pathfinding amplifies all those problems up to 11 and you have constantly order units to move through enemies just to get more models to attack the enemy.

    Mannfreds new campaign start is unironically more fun than Vlads.

    It didnt help that I made every high elf faction declare war on me because I had to raid the white tower for one of Nagash's little girly la la homo diaries. I ran a smash and grab while Tyrion was busy with N'kari and it was hilarious watching him try to scrabble after me.

          Other way around. Arkhan cucked Mannfred hard.

        Besides I had control of the black pyramid . Arkhan wasn't gonna do shit to fuck me over.
        It was a pretty kino campaign. He took the border princes and Skavenblight, keeping my eastern flank secure while I marched up to Sylvania. But down south was my favourite part. Kairos and Teclis had both declared war on me but I managed to bog them down by stationing a cheap army off the coast and just seized ports and traded settlements from the stronger side to the weaker one to keep the balance of power.

          I was referncing the earliest parts of the End Times where they 'cooperated' to summon Nagash, when Arkhan saw the double cross coming from a mile away and fucked over Mannfred completely.
          The result was Nagash ripping out Mannfred's liver to resurrect Vlad in an act of public shaming.

    How do I get good at the combat? I set my army up before the fight, and then everything just turns into a massive clusterfuck blobfest as I approach the enemy army.

      move forward before atacking so slow units dont get left behind
      keep an eye on your flanks

      Pause the game a lot so you can calmly dispatch orders. It's there for a reason.
      Try to keep your frontline in one formation
      Archers/ranged behind
      Artillery behind even further
      Spearmen and cavalry on flanks.
      If you click a formation while holding ALT you can order them to move in that formation.

    I HAVE NEVER ONCE FINISHED A CAMPAIGN, HOW DO I STOP GETTING BORED AFTER TURN 50~100, I FEE LIKE THE CAMPAIGN OBJECTIVES ARE ALWAYS BUGGED OR ARE BEYOND TEDIOUS

      Campaign objectives are much better in IE than they used to be but still a bit fucky. They must be pretty easy for CA to change since they changed the four monogods' long victories in the hotfix a couple weeks ago (they used to have to destroy all other Chaos factions, which is bonkers because you'd have to cover the entire game map), so I'd expect further changes in the October patch.

      I don't know your playstyle but maybe stop gunning for what's the most effective and instead experiment, make thematic stacks etc.
