Forums - PC Discussion - The Total War Thread

Hey all, I was curious if there are other Total War game fanatics, such as myself, on this website? If not, cool. But if so, I think it would be fun to have a thread where we can arrange for campaign/battles together somewhere. Unlike most genres and games, Total War campaigns aren't really fun when you just pick up and play with random people on the internet. The campaigns usually take days (if you are playing basically nonstop) and weeks or months if you are playing like an hour a day or so. Because of that, it is more enjoyable to connect with someone that you can arrange to play a certain amount of time throughout the week on certain days/timeframes.

If you enjoy Total War games and would like to play a campaign (or battle) with someone, please post below which games you are willing to play and the day/time of the week (along with timezone) you'd be willing to play. Then, if you see someone who is playing a game in a timeframe you like, quote reply them so we can all see and set up something (that way we aren't all redundantly trying to connect with the same people).

I'll start this off for myself:

Warhammer/Warhammer II Total War and Rome II Total War are my preferred games.

Central Time Zone

Probably could do 1-2 hours a week starting 6 pm and onwards Monday - Friday (only one-two days a week more than likely).

I support the idea behind this thread, but my computer hasn't really been up to playing any of the games since Shogun 2. Rooting for this thread to take off though!

Yeah I'm just hopeful there are enough of us on the site!



Bump for the morning, wanna see if anyone this time of day plays.



Only have Warhammer 2 installed at the moment, but I'd have some interest in playing.

Would mostly be available 10pm (JST) or later any days except Friday/Saturday.

Warhammer 2 is my favorite at the moment (mainly due to camera and unit variety), I'll have to check to see if my laptop can run it well enough.

So that's 14 hours ahead of my time zone so unlikely we could play together sadly :(

Yeah, the unit variety of Warhammer 2 is great! Really looking forward to the 3rd game.

None of the other recent Total War games have really interested me that much. If they ever get around to making Medieval 3 however, I'd be very interested!

And yeah, I figured time difference would be an issue. Although even if it weren't, the internet lag from those kind of distances is... not ideal



I like Total war but only play Single player.



Don't count me in among the Total War fanatics, but I definitely like the series. Sadly I haven't had the opportunity to give the series the time it deserves, but I do what I can. Experience-wise, I've played Rome, Shogun II, Attila, and Three Kingdoms, although I own Shogun, Medieval II, and Empire as well (and some expansions for some of the games). I'm currently on my first playthrough of both Attila and Three Kingdoms, and considering how long I've been working on them, it'll probably be a while more before I can actually finish them...

Sadly I don't think I will be of much company in multiplayer. I probably suck too much to play competitive multiplayer, and I'm also not very interested in committing to long campaigns - or are co-op campaigns significantly shorter than singleplayer campaigns?

Generally they take even longer as you have to coordinate times. But that's why it's fun! It's like a long term relationship! Haha
