Welcome to the world of Total war where one more turn become 20 more and 2 hours later. I see you have the high elves biggest obstacle to world conquest, those damn confederations never go through.

We’ve all suffered from this same disease. Many a night has been lost waiting for that “one more turn” to end, but instead it just keeps coming.

I just recovered from that one the night before last, when I converted the last holdouts to the One True Faith (namely mine).

Get well soon Tim! Personally I found it helpful to put a clicklock on my mouse. After so many turns it will stop clicking and thus forcing me to take a rest. Should you wish to get one yourself, it’s more commonly known as “Crap, I broke my mouse due to excessive use!” . Therefor a cheap low quality Ali-Express mouse comes with a built in clicklock. A feature that the more expensive types seem to be lacking. Logitech, for instance, refuses to install clicklocks. They are a nefarious company, preying on the addictions of the weak (mainly those with… Read more »

Diablo II – I actually re-soldered my mouse button several time. IIRC it was a Logitech one but I wouldn’t swear.

I’m not sure the doctors advice is to the patients best chance for a rapid recovery, despite her probable intent of closely monitoring his performance, at the very least over the stream and yelling encouragement from the sidelines and support bunker when possible.

While I totally get the one more click sickness, there is an even greater sickness afoot. This is the love of those filthy traitors, that are the high elves. After all Malekith is the only True Phoenix King (even canon after End Times), so the right course of action would be, submission to the true king and execution of all so called heroes of the high elves.

Have you used Yvresse? Their campaign mechanic (the prison) is great. Honestly though, all DLC lords, especially more recent ones, are massively more padded with interesting mechanics than the vanilla lords, with the worst offender of all being the Brass Bull…

No it’s canon the Elven gods killed all other Phoenix Kings. Also Malekith looks way more awesome

Yes he wussed out but at least he tried without this super magic shields the later kings used (which made them cheaters in asuryans eyes). So down with cheaters! 😁
Also the whole elven arc in end times was some of the best Story writing warhammer has seen in a long time.

4-5 years ago you would probably be cured by “AI turns take forever” medicine, but CA dastardly optimized AI decision making 2 or so years ago and now turns go pretty fast even on my 11 years old PC.

I’m sitting on 111 operational mods (down from 150+ before the latest update) for my TWW2, and a string of abandoned campaigns (because the only campaign I have interest in is map completion, and it gets boring once you have too much power)…

This game is a time sink like few others. XD

I too once suffered Just-One-More-Turn Disease for playing the high elves in TW:Warhammer 2. I suggest to you Tim to stop trying to get the Everqueen to agree with uniting and just take over so you can focus more on completely destroying and removing the Dark Elf menace!

Yeah I can’t remember which high elf kept giving me trouble in forming a confederate, but I think the nation ended up being too weak to be a threat for a bit so I just went ahead and began taking out the Dark Elves. I still kept one or two regiments around there though in case they decide to declare war, or if one of their places got taken over by rebels or a weak rival nation to where I can swoop in to liberate, and then make that other nation declare peace(since I can just go out of my… Read more »

Ahh, Total Warhammer. The one place of sanctuary available to us old beards who got fucked over by GW with Age of Shitmar and it’s ground marines. Call me bitter all you want I was Bretonnian player, last edition (8th) fucked us over and no update on army book, even erratas ingored us, pointy ears got extra points in specials to represent old rules, where was the equivalent to Brets? No old world, GW can choke on their over priced plastic.

Just FYI, if she’s safe in her little patch of Ulthuan and you’ve already cut off all enemies around her she’ll never confederate.

Been playing a Taurox campaign and holy shit the Beastman are way better after this update, super underwhelming when they originally came out but I can take on 3 full stacks just with his army in Very Hard. Even giants seem to have been buffed significantly and they’ve long been panned as the worst Tier 4 monsters.
