Tyrion is gonna have the problems of the WH1-release Empire start: please enjoy fighting nothing but your own people's tier one infantry for the first 4/5 of the game, then throw a doomstack at the target of opportunity of your choice.

guarantees that anyone playing against the High Elves is gonna have a hard time shutting them down, but playing as that person is going to get real old real fast.

you wanna High Elf, play Teclis, and make war against a delicious assortment of jerks.

Shame on you if you play Tyrion and don't immediately go to Not-Canada for a family feud. Or a nice relaxing vacation in a Brettonian resort in the Southlands

Turin uploaded a video of a fairly convincing High Elf multiplayer win in case people are still worried about them being weak:

CA said they want to focus on ground combat, hence the lack of navies (so far). Don't think Man o' War Corsair factors into it, as the game was released months ago.

I have an idea for a playthrough as Good Guy Malekith. I'm going to try to make friends with the High Elves, bring Morathi to heel, unify Naggarond and then play mostly defense while sending out armies to crush Skaven and Chaos. I might even free the slaves.

It will be a redemption arc for the ages.

Yeah, they make sense and the lowered cost for hero actions is pretty good but it just feels so boring compared to what other faction leaders get. She does get some cool unique buildings at least.

so, GW, makers of overpriced tiny plastic toys and an associated bad game from which this Good Game sprang, had a consistent problem with other plastic toy sellers selling stuff that was Definitely Not For Use In Warhammer Wink Wink Nudge Nudge. GW eventually took one of the most notable of these guys to court on the subject of "No, Seriously, Come The gently caress On, This Is Definitely IP Infringement, Right."

yeah well here's the catch: they pushed WAY too hard trying to get a favorable precedent in the case, and the judge dropped fire from heaven on them for it. "No, Actually, YOU Come The gently caress On, You Can't Copyright The Term "Space Marine," You loving Nerds."

in order to defend against further owns of this kind, GW proceeded to rename basically everything in its game lines. so it was that Tower Guard became Darkshards, Dark Elf Swordsmen became Bleakswords, Dark Elf Spearmen became Dreadspears, orcs became Orruks, elves became Aelves, Imperial Guard became Astra Militarum, etc etc IT WAS REALLY DUMB.

I mentioned this in the Battletech thread, but it bears repeating here but...

imagine being the judge who gets to sit and preside over a legal battle over which space marines are the true Space Marines (tm).

Also imagine being the lawyers who have to legitimately argue this stuff. The lawyers are getting paid a lot sure, but they still have to keep a straight face when talking about how "I OBJECT TO HOW MUCH THIS DOOM SLAYER SPACE MARINE'S ARMOR IS EXACTLY LIKE MY SPACE KILLER MARINE DOOM MAN'S SPACE SUIT"

I was always going to play Kroq-Gar first. This was solidified by his character portrait during faction/lord selection. He roars at the camera, then quiets down, turns, and pats Grymloq's muzzle as it enters the frame.

I have a horrible confession to make. I'm looking forward to High Elves because it looks like you can make a nigh-uncrackable, elite infantry core of heavily armored and armed White Lions, Swordmasters, and Phoenix Guard that can deal with any target. Hell, take Sea Guard as your archer unit and even they'll be able to put up a fight in melee.

Decent armor, silver shields, charge defense and anti-large melee. Sea Guard are basically a gently caress you to every normal archer counter (use your own archers or charge them with fast stuff)
