Why would I be joking?
Do my copy-paste Generals in Rome 2 still teleport MAGICALLY to my standing armies in Rome 2? Yup. Do my Generals have Families? **** if I know! Do my armies magically create boats when stepping on water? Sure do. Are the RPG city building mechanics and character progression non-existent? Sure are.
Dumb Design ideas are still Dumb Design ideas. IE just like Egosoft's Rebirth "highway" minigame = dumb.
If those are the only things making you fell Rome 2 is useless, that's a pretty weak list.
There is a difference between removing some features and then completely crapping over everything that made the previous games great.
Rebirth is just one huge retard-fest. Your co-pilot sits there and lets the ship get blown up if you remote pilot a drone. There is no radar. There is still no way to give precise orders to your fleet of ships. The Skunk flies and fights like some kind of bad FPS game. Small and medium shipyards still don't produce ships. You can't finely control what your stations produce and set prices for wares. You only have one extremely bland, ugly and uninteresting ship with a handful of possible(and boring) upgrades.
