I bought the ,expansion" because I love this game and I have 1800 hours in it. But now I am sad to say but its a dissapointment.
It seems another semi-finished project. Simply I dont understand where these ideas came from?
I am a warhammer fan, I love beastmen, but their implementation is not what I can call a full new race.
- 1 special? really? where are the bray shamans?
- 1 monster ? hmmm…ok but I’d like jabberslythe too
- No Boss in an expansion which based on a new race?
Despite of these, I like the new units thats right, but I think its too few.
Maps! Sorry, 1 map are you kidding? I expected 3-5 new maps with their story and an endboss for example a Beastlord who is gathering his brayherd to pillage nearby villages, towns. But Noo we get a repetitive weave based already existed map parts to upgrade our character forever for nothing. You should implent these weaves to new maps not in a separated game mode.
New Stagger mechanic? Why? to make game harder? Thats why you made cataclysm what is cool. But whit this stagger you just killed single target weapons and with this a lot of carriers. Why cant you just add this mechanic to properties or traits for shielded weapons? What can I do now with elf’s two handed and Kruber’s executioner cause my playstyle was fencing like. Staying far from enemy and striking them then dodge back. Now I have to wait till the full horde encircle me. Because hyperdensity especially when you fight against beastmen stagger is sometimes useless.
New talents? Why? fully reworked talent tree? Why? You almost made the talents fully balanced and now forgot everything and make absolutelly new ones and besides lot of them totally pointless. Why cant you just replace some useless (by the community) talents to new ones to keep talent tree fresh?
Now talk about the time what a single map need. Lot of time. But as I see balancing stagger mechanic for every weapon and the new talent tree for every character and career will be 3x times longer nevermind.
New weapons are great! But no illusions for them? what?
Cosmetics? Even the new weapons didnot get illusions. No new cosmetic in an expansion. Instead of cosmetics we get dozens of commendation chest as ,rewards" for new challenges. What Can I do with them? I have every cosmetics which are in the game. Opening chests is no longer useful for me anymore. Why cant you add an illusion for every unique named weapon like the dragon head styled dwarven one handed hammer to add some variety for the game?
Weave rewards are portraits with different colour, and season reward commendation chests. It is simply lazyness, sorry I cant find any better explanation for this.
I am really really afraid of the future of this game. If you try to make dlc for expansion to more and missing content thats a dead case. I only accept free updates for the expansion. If you put cosmetic and illusion rewards for weaves forcing players to play a game mod what they dont want to only for keeping alive the weaves is not option for me. As I said weaves are so calculable, enemies spawning at the same places. Game looses what makes it fun after so much hours, the random spawning the new situations like in missions.
Weaves mod will lost its interest after a month or two, no matter of seasons. Think only fortunes of war. Same spawning points, challenge only for once!
New 5 level to get 50 more power? In the last patch you replace the last talent point to lvl30 so why? I have 500+ level on Kruber. Kill all bosses to open cataclysm? really? Just another stuff fo new players I killed them thousands of time. It could make sanse with a new boss but no we didnot get a new boss. Hearthbreak!!!
First and last! what did I get for the half of the full game’s price?
- 5 beastmen units, half as I expected
- 1 new map, 1 new map I said only 1 new map
- Cataclysm with unplayable difficulty without reward.
- 4 new weapons (mechanics absolutelly ok, I like playing with them) which looks like a collection of a peasant rebellion.
- Weaves. I have talked enough of it
- Katrina or who. One annoying voiceline in the keep without any reason why did you put it into the game. If you have future plans with her, just keep her for the future.
So I am really disappointed with the new expansion. I am so sad I was so hyped for this but nevermind I paid it so you get what you want. I am sorry If I was rude but thats the truth.
