They said they finally solved the AI contradiction problem in Total War games... meaing the AI wants to be your best friend and also wants to murder you in your sleep. Well on more, it either hates you and it will make you feel hated, or it likes you, in which case it will not plot against you unless they have a strong incentive. If they do it right, the AI might very well for the first time feel "human"

But I am a bit stumped as to how they worded their features and PR.. does this mean we can only play as Rome because in Rome 1 we were not forced to play rome, and indeed the most fun was to be had with the non-roman factions, throwing heads at enemies and flaming pigs ftw!

Other than pathing issues, I don't know what the AI prob is/was. I remember murdering the fuck out of armies that were way bigger than mine. i.e. This was recent mind you.. Screenshot.

Originally, you had to beat the game with Rome IIRC. Which I never did, but I came close, yet later I noticed all of the factions opened up anyway. So yeah not sure wtf happened there.

In RTW, you played as a Roman family/faction, but in the Barbarian expansion you could play as one of the Barbarian nations.

Anyways, RTW is one of the best games ever, period, so hopefully this game lives up to it somehow.
