Give it a year and the modding community will make this game awesome!


I read it as “Please finish the game for us”. A lot of people are saying its likely they will discontinue support for the game and will only patch it when it becomes viable to sell some new DLC. Whilst the community will no doubt deliver as it usually does, in the end is it even worth doing. You only have to see both the Lordz games and DarthVaders new game to realize that Modding total war games is a rather futile now and its better to instead focus on stand alone titles which are more enjoyable and suffer less from inherited bugs CA never fixed.

Given nothing good ever came of Shogun 2′s Mod Tools I don’t really see much of a point.


Tools won’t fix the bad strategic game play, nor lack of strategic depth, or poor UI , or stupid kiddie city animations. The game was designed for kiddies on a Steam Console, it will need a major overhaul to regain it’s strategic tag. Simple answer to write off Rome2 and CA, go back to CIV5 or TATW and hope for another developer to take up the serious strategic war game mantle.
