I wish, in the UK :*(

...When ten to the enemy’s one, surround him;

...When five times his strength, attack him;

...If double his strength, divide him;
...If equally matched you may engage him;
...If weaker numerically, be capable of withdrawing;
...And if in all respects unequal, be capable of eluding him,
...for a small force is but booty for one more powerful."

I am wondering why arena is in the SEGA booth, isn't wargaming gonna be the publisher and arena has nothing to do with SEGA anymore?

The official announcement was :

 

"Total War: ARENA is the first AAA project published globally by Wargaming Alliance, in cooperation with SEGA and Creative Assembly. Total War, one of the key pillars of the SEGA business, is one of the most successful and influential strategy franchises of all time, mixing massive battles with deep tactical and strategic elements. Total War: ARENA brings those franchise tenets into the world of free-to-play gaming by blending the series’ trademark strategic experiences with intense 10-vs-10 player battles."

 

So Sega and CA still involved and cooperating in the project, despise Wargaming being the lead publisher. Total War is their brand and they care about it, after all.

Yes I know, timing is everything though.

 

Don't want to come across like a stalker :hiding: hiding in the bushes for someone to double-swipe me in. :)

Alpha testing continues, and if you have been getting involved on the test weekends you’ll have seen some interesting developments. Not least of which the new and fiercely contested Hadrian’s Wall map, which debuted a couple of weeks ago.

 

E3 will also be a big event for ARENA, so check us out on the show floor to go hands on with the latest build and tune into the official Facebook page for more info as it arrives.

Moving on to the more multiplayer-oriented Total War: Arena brought an interesting change of pace. Originally available in an alpha state on Steam, Total War: Arena shifted to a new publisher (Wargaming) awhile back and was removed from public access. It’s now been tweaked in a variety of ways with a closed beta coming soon.

If you’ve played Total War: Arena before, the core of the game hasn’t changed, but there have been updates to combat, morale, progression, and a few other gameplay mechanics. Instead of commanding thousands of troops on the battlefield, each player has control of three squads and a leader. They’re then joined by nine other players (10v10) to create the epic-scale battles that we’re used to in the Total War series.

Although it can be fun if your team is organized, the gameplay does suffer if there isn’t sufficient communication and there aren’t a lot of in-game directions or suggestions. This can lead to 10 tiny armies each acting on their own, which can easily get picked off by a more competent team of opponents.  During my match, I commanded three squads of infantry units and charged a formation of archers hiding in the forest. I didn’t receive any assistance from my team and was eventually overwhelmed as the enemy backup arrived.

This could have been my fault or my allies’ fault, but the key point is that it stopped being fun once I was surrounded and couldn’t do anything other than watch my troops die. In its current state, Total War: Arena definitely feels like it would appeal more to groups of friends, or guilds, rather than individual players looking for a quick Total War fix.
