Total War: Attila – Tin Isle Mercenaries Update

total-war-attila-TWA_Battle_Siege_Fire_1410262854-e1411749032250

Im Chaos der Schlachten von Total War: Attila brauchen manche Einheiten noch ein wenig mehr Zuwendung als andere. Hier greift der kommende Patch ein, der vor allem an der Balance des Spiels herumschraubt. Darüber hinaus wird parallel zu diesem Patch das Kelten-Kulturenpaket veröffentlicht werden.

Wie der Titel des Updates schon erahnen lässt, halten neue Söldnertruppen Einzug in Attila. Angelehnt an das kommende Kulturenpaket können andere Fraktionen im Tausch gegen das nötige Kleingeld sieben unterschiedliche keltische Söldnereinheiten zu Land und fünf unterschiedliche zu Wasser anwerben. Diese neuen Söldner werden im Übrigen für alle Besitzer des Spiels kostenlos sein.

Käufer des Langbärte-Kulturenpakets können sich indes über sechs neue Generalseinheiten  freuen, die die Eliteeinheiten der jeweiligen neuen Königreiche als Leibgarde nutzen.  Zusätzlich hat Creative Assembly damit begonnen einige Einheiten von den Weiterentwicklungsbäumen zu lösen, was dazuführt, dass manchen Fraktionen im Endgame nun eine oder zwei mehr Einheiten zur Verfügung stehen. Ebenso schön ist, dass die KI nun vor der 100. Runde deutlich weniger Regionen zerstören sollte, als sie es bisher getan hat.

Die Meisten anderen Änderungen tangieren vor allem das Balancing auf den Schlachtfeldern und verändern auch das Preisgefüge bei der Rekrutierung auf der Kampagnenkarte. Insbesondere die Schockkavallerie, Speereinheiten, Axtkämpfer und Berserker  dürften diese Änderungen am meisten spüren. Spezifischere Infos zu den Veränderungen könnt ihr den Patchnotes weiter unten entnehmen.

Offizielle Patchnotes

„Due next week, alongside Celts Culture Pack Release.

This update brings with it many performance, technical and gameplay improvements, and plenty of unit rebalancing. It also introduces a raft of mercenary Celtic units and ships which may be recruited by any forces stationed in and around the Brittanic, or as the Greeks named them, Tin Isles.

All players will get access to these mercenary units, even if they do not purchase the separate Celts Culture Pack.

All Celtic units have the Guerrilla Deployment trait, which gives them a vastly larger area in which to deploy across any given battlefield. This can bring a disruptive new dimension to your army’s skillset, enabling it to perform surprise attacks early in the battle and from unexpected directions – even from concealment behind the enemy.

Celtic Mercenary Land units:

  • Mercenary Celtic Brigands: Tier 1 light javelin skirmishers
  • Mercenary Celtic Levy: Tier 1 light spear infantry
  • Mercenary Gazehounds: Tier 1 medium warhounds
  • Mercenary Celtic Band: Tier 1 light sword infantry
  • Mercenary Celtic Onager: Tier 1 light artillery
  • Mercenary Celtic Cavalry Raiders: Tier 1 very light skirmisher cavalry
  • Mercenary Celtic Axe Band: Tier 1 medium axe infantry

Celtic Mercenary Naval units:

  • Mercenary Celtic Berserker Marauders: Tier 1 light axe berserkers
  • Mercenary Celtic Marauders: Tier 1 medium melee
  • Mercenary Celtic Heavy Marauders: Tier 1 heavy melee
  • Mercenary Celtic Light Marauders: Tier 1 light melee
  • Mercenary Celtic Bow Marauders: Tier 1 light bow

Technical and Performance improvements:

  • Fixed some memory leaks in battle, which could lead to crashes.
  • Fixed a crash bug in cinematic display.
  • Fixed a rare crash when hovering the mouse over a family members portrait.
  • Fixed a crash when spawning a Civil War for hordes.
  • 1920 x 1080 full screen resolution is now supported on 27’ iMac.

Gameplay Improvements:

Battle

  • Fixed a rare issue that caused an attacking army to get stuck when assaulting walled settlements.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause artillery units in battle to target buildings that were too far away for them to consistently hit.
  • Fixed a rare issue that caused the AI to appear unresponsive for a time during river battles.
  • Fixed an issue where the attacking settlement AI in battles was stalling due to it being given too many change-formation orders.
  • Improved siege tower docking in Tuesis battle map.
  • Generals will now have facial animation / lip-sync when giving their speech on the battlefield.
  • Change to Battle AI sally-out behaviour, so that the units don’t wait so long before attacking if they are under fire.
  • Fixed a bug where disembarked units attempted to jump back onto their ship after it had sailed away.

Campaign

  • Added 6 new General units to Longbeards DLC:
  • Alamans:

  • Campaign AI is now less likely to focus on razing provinces within the first 100 turns.
  • Attila and the Huns will now be more active in Campaign modes once Attila has become king and the Western Roman Empire has just collapsed.

  • Made the campaign AI less aggressive to hordes in some cases (preventing them chasing the horde around the campaign map so much).
  • Non-playable hordes will no longer suffer auto-resolver penalties just because they don’t own any regions.
  • Excubitores Cavalry Guard are now a standalone unit for the Eastern Roman Empire, instead of an upgrade from Scholae Palatinae. Scholae Palatinae can still be upgraded to Tagmata Cavalry by researching the Billeting technology.
  • Nordic Axe Warband can now be recruited from the Level 2 Smith, instead of the Level 3 Smith.
  • Nordic Axe Warriors are now a standalone unit that can be recruited from the Level 3 Smith. Nordic Axe Warbands no longer upgrade into Nordic Axe Warriors.
