Love both of these so much. Especially the Khuzait one, feels so fitting to their culture and feel ingame.

Personally all for the battania purely because they have war paint

I'm looking forward to a twist of fate. Some cool alternate timeline stuff to keep it fresh.

So, I've nearly finished my 2nd watch of Mr. Robot. If you haven't seen this masterpiece of television i strongly recommend it, its easily one of the best shows I've ever seen.

Quick synopsis: Elliot Alderson (yes matrix reference) is a cyber-security engineer and hacker who has social anxiety and clinical depression. Elliot is recruited by an anarchist hacker group led by "Mr. Robot" to take down E corp, the largest conglomerate in the world.

Suffice to say its not that simple, lots of twists and other complicated characters cause the show the often delve into Elliot's mind as you are his "imaginary friend" he creates to deal with his loneliness. Personally the main draw for me is the cinematography which over the course of 4 seasons Sam Esmail crafts his own style of depiction for Elliott's anxiety through long isolated camera shots, where the characters are often only in one quarter of the screen.

Furthermore there are truly daring episodes of tv some examples,
  • A complete episode with no dialogue
  • An episode staged as a play in 1 location with Acts. (Probably my favourite episode of television ever made)
  • An episode set as a 90s Sitcom
  • An episode in 1 camera shot.
Don't take my word for it, the show doesn't drop below 8/10 on imdb for a single episode and the final season has 7 episodes ranked nearly 10/10.

The only issue i've had when getting other people to watch it is they say it is a bit slow and its the definition of "deliberately paced". Don't expect answers to questions or twists for almost the entire length of the show, but stick with it and its worth the wait.
It is the perfect show to watch knowing it gets better and better as it goes and actually ends on its peak with a satisfying conclusion (much needed after Game of Thrones)

Also Rami Malek's performance is insanely enjoyable and won him an emmy. Also the hacking is done realistically.

So if anyone has seen it I'd love to know what you think, and if anyone wants to discuss it i'll make a sub forum for spoilers.

Love the idea

Intial load is long for me, but no problems once in game. I get the odd lag when in massive battles but no problems for me. Hopefully will fix as they update

Great game. Already have it, i've really been enjoying Total warhammer, which i need to get back into. Got a free copy of it from my roommate who went to warhammer world during some promo, strange considering i walk past it everyday on my commute.

I've rediscovered my love for radiohead's emotional draw and been listening to their albums on repeat. This song has always struck such a feeling with me:

You can definitely break a siege by attacking directly from outside, but i think phoenix means defending the castle from the inside once they attack. It's only possible at the moment if you are already in the castle when its attacked or you break in (sacrificing alot of troops). I suppose it makes sense an army of 100 people cant just waltz in through the siege into the castle.

The main downside is defending a castle is one of the best combat experiences the game has to offer and I'd say its one of the rarest fights you get to do, as often sacrificing 50% of your troops isn't worth it when you can just attack the siege camp outside. Plus in my experience I've sacrificed my troops to get inside only for the attacker to leave, making me lose all my troops for nothing.

I think one amazing addition would be to actually have a battle where you have to break through the siege camp into your castle. Would be fun to command your troops around an enemy army into your castle gates.
