Total War: Rome 2 Discussion
All the internet's aflame with surprised rage about a buggy Total War release; all I'm surprised about is that people are surprised!
Nope, he's dead on, apart from the AI being retardet, there is zero reason to field navies, as trooptransports are bigger, more health, more men, more ramming damage, if you field a navy stack against a army stack, the army will win every time, sad but true
but it happens a bit to many times with a lot games, indie or aaa titles
I know transport ships CAN be powerful in naval battles (Accompanying proper warships with a few transports of peltasts and archers has worked well for me), and I agree that this should not really be the case, Joe was complaining because he was getting his arse handed to him by warships, and that he was completely inept and got all his big, slow ships tangled together in a big clump.
So which is it? It's broken because transports are perhaps overpowered, or it's broken because transports are easily outmaneuvered by small warships, causing enormous losses?
you don't get it, its broken because there is NO naval ai pathing, your ships act like they're alone in the water, and will ram into any friendly unit between itself, and the target, THAT'S what's he complaining about, and its dead on
and here's a thread on fleet vs army
the general opinion is that fleets are useless, except for catapult ships, but those are high tier and expensive, so not really worth using over just an army stack
