Ave Duces!

 

If you did not bump into our welcoming post just yet, let me do the honors right here and right now - welcome to the Total War: Arena official European forum! ;) 

 

Still, make sure to check out the topic linked, as it contains some information surely useful at the beginning of the glorious journey we have in front of us!

 

But - before we truly embark on the quest of making Total War: Arena the best game out there, it is advantageous to know who's standing besides us. Many battles lie ahead, so let us ensure that our phalanx formation remains unbreakable.

 

Let's learn a bit about each other!

 

Please feel free to use the following format when introducing yourself to the fellow generals:

 

Tell us about yourself!

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

Pick a side - Star Trek or Star Wars?

 

No, seriously. Marvel or DC?

Now let's get it started!

Ave Gentlemen!

 

Tell us about yourself!

 

I am known throughout the gaming verse as MrConway, pleased to meet you!

 

I started off working for Wargaming's customer support team 3 years ago before moving over to our awesome community department. I am an avid gamer and if you play one of our other titles, there is a good chance we have already met in battle. My staple games include all kind of strategy games, especially grand strategy, as well as space-sims and the occasional shooter for releasing stress.

 

Expect to see me around in game, on Twitch and as a guest on an occasional YouTube video.

 

All I want to still say is that am terribly excited about Total War: Arena! I am a great fan of the series, having played almost every title in the series for many a long night ;)

 

Your favorite Total War game in the series is...

Empire: Total War

 

But why?

Nothing beats a huge division firing line by line at charging enemies, also: boats!

 

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

Gotta go with the Spartans, if you ever had only one unit of Spartan Hoplites hold a bridge against an army you know why! :)

 

On a scale from Dalek to Mandalorian, how much of a nerd are you? 

Londo Mollari!

 

Pick a side - Star Trek or Star Wars?

Isn't it finally time for peace?

 

No, seriously. Marvel or DC?

After Deadpool there is no going back, Marvel all the way!

Tell us about yourself!

Hey guys! I am Ph3lan, one of the Community Managers at Wargaming.net. I have been playing computer games since I was 10 and strategy was my favorite genre since Dune II J

A couple of years ago it was a strategy game (not telling you which one) that got me into competitive gaming and into creating my own videos. That’s ultimately how I ended up in the video game industry. With Total War: Arena we are finally adding a competitive multiplayer strategy game to the Wargaming.net roster and I am super excited about the prospect of working on it!


Your favorite Total War game in the series is...

Shogun: Total War


But why?

Because it has Samurai and Ninjas. I don’t think I need to say more :D


What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

Japanese. Otherwise Romans!


On a scale from Dalek to Mandalorian, how much of a nerd are you?

I wrote my thesis for my master’s degree about the Lord of the Rings.:hiding:


Pick a side - Star Trek or Star Wars?

Love them both equally. Please don’t hurt me!


No, seriously. Marvel or DC?

Marvel all the way! Spiderman is the greatest superhero ever!


Which gaming platform is the greatest and why do you think it's the PC?

PC FTW! I have an Xbox at home, but aside from the occasional WoT: Console match I use it only for Netflix! :P

Tell us about yourself!

I'm Michael and I will be your host... I mean I will be responsible for helping you guys out with any technical issues or bugs. 

I'm an avid Role-player, football fan and of course, a gamer. If you've taken part in previous tests of Total War Arena, then we've certainly met on the fields of battle! 

 

Your favorite Total War game in the series is...

Attila

 

But why?

It introduces great many new features and fresh ideas. I also love amazing new faction mechanics and dynamics, even more so in coop. 

 

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

Tanukhids - horde faction with it's own twist and some clever 'campaign' solutions. And dat cav! 

 

On a scale from Dalek to Mandalorian, how much of a nerd are you? 

Aliit ori'shya taldin, ner vode!

 

Pick a side - Star Trek or Star Wars?

If it wasn't terribly obvious by now... Star Wars. Having said that, I do enjoy me some Star Trek as well. 

 

No, seriously. Marvel or DC?

Marvel, 'nuff said!

 

Which gaming platform is the greatest and why do you think it's the PC?

Tell us about yourself!

I started working as Community Coordinator at Wargaming.net a bit over a year ago and if you are German-speaking you most likely already met me on the forums of our other games.

As long as it is a strategy game, roleplaying game or tactics are involved I probably already checked it out. When I was told we are going to publish a strategy game, I couldn't wait to see it in action!

 

Your favorite Total War game in the series is...

That's a tough one... it is definitely going to be TW Arena, once it gets released.

 

But why?

There is nothing better than playing together with all your friends, clan mates and everyone else you might meet on the battlefield ;)

 

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

Romans!

 

On a scale from Dalek to Mandalorian, how much of a nerd are you? 

Live long and prosper!

 

Pick a side - Star Trek or Star Wars?

(definitely Star Trek, if that wasn't obvious enough)

 

No, seriously. Marvel or DC?

Superman, Batman, Green Lantern? - DC it is

 

Which gaming platform is the greatest and why do you think it's the PC?

As the question has already been answered in the question itself, there is nothing more to say!

PC master race!

Okay, my turn!

 

Tell us about yourself!

Gamer, not limiting himself to any platform and in love with many genres. Raised by consoles (SNES and PSX always in my heart), switched to PC for most of the 7th generation, then got back again. Currently, I return to the Realm of the Master Race for special occasions only - Total War: Arena is one of them :happy:

 

Your favorite Total War game in the series is...

Total War: Shogun 2 

 

But why?

Feudal Japan setting FTW.
 

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

Roman Shimazu clan of Polish descent (it's complicated).

 

On a scale from Dalek to Mandalorian, how much of a nerd are you?

Wise man once said - there is no such thing as enough action figures on my desk.

 

Pick a side - Star Trek or Star Wars?

It's not the East or the West side...

 

No, seriously. Marvel or DC?

Don't get me wrong, Batman is awesome - but he does not have badass adamantium claws or slick web swinging skills.

 

Which gaming platform is the greatest and why you think it's the PC?

Nintendo PC? Portable Console? I thought they called it 3DS...

Tell us about yourself!

My Nickname is DoggyKalhoon and I am the Publishing Producer on Total War: Arena. I will do my best to entertain you and offer you the best experience possible while playing the game.

I am working for more than 10 years in the videogame industry, working on more than 40 titles and still a pleasure to be part of it and see how it evolves.

And so excited to be part of Total War: Arena adventure in a wonderful upcoming journey.

 

Your favorite Total War game in the series is...

Not one, but two: Total War: Shogun and Total War: Napoleon

 

But why?

Napoleon because it is one of my favorite historic figure and Shogun because it was where all started.

 

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

French one of course :)

 

On a scale from Dalek to Mandalorian, how much of a nerd are you? 

Do they jump over mushrooms or fight Kolbos?

Posted Image

 

Pick a side - Star Trek or Star Wars?

Lords of the Rings. I am definetely more Heroic-Fantasy than Sci-Fi.

 

No, seriously. Marvel or DC?

Batman for the win, so if I have to pick one side, it is DC.

 

Which gaming platform is the greatest and why do you think it's the PC?

Tell us about yourself!

Tanatoy report for duty ! I'm French Community Coordinator since 4 years in Wargaming.net, and I have been working in the video games industry since 7 years now. I'll do all my best to be sure that your questions are answered in the best way as possible and make sure that this community is a place for everybody :). I've played the previous stage of Total War : Arena for more than a hundred hours and I can't wait to play it more !

 

Your favorite Total War game in the series is...

Total War : Napoleon and Rome II.

 

But why?

For Napoleon ? Artillery, artillery, artillery, and epic charges of Cuirassiers and Grenadier à cheval. And for Rome ? Nothing beats the combination of Balista, Praetorian infantry and waves of War Dogs to fear the troops of the ennemy. And both of those games (as of all Total War series) have a huge life time :)

 

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

Like Doggy, I only can reply French/Arveni ! 

 

On a scale from Dalek to Mandalorian, how much of a nerd are you? 

By the Lords of Kobol, I'm more a nerd than a Yuuzhan Vong is scary.  And by Mitth'raw'nuruodo, the Fel dinasty makes the best pilots of the galaxy. 

 

Pick a side - Star Trek or Star Wars?

Definetely Star Wars.

 

No, seriously. Marvel or DC?

I believe my dozen of Batman related T-shirts are answering this question.

 

Which gaming platform is the greatest and why do you think it's the PC?

Because it has Total War: Arena

34jr, Dutch, husband, dad, engineer, RTK. Total war fan since Shogun. I have enjoyed countless hours in the “early days” of total war. Gained other interest, till Arena caught my attention. I am looking forward to the next step in the development of this great game.

 

Your favorite Total War game in the series is...

Arena has the papers to surpass them all.

 

But why?

... we will see…

 

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

The best faction is a faction that makes winning a challenge.

 

On a scale from Dalek to Mandalorian, how much of a nerd are you?

See before last question.

 

Pick a side - Star Trek or Star Wars?

The dark side.

Votre jeu préféré dans la série
Total War est ...

 - Total War Arena, quels autres jeux peux se targué d'être le meilleur jeu jamais créé autre que TWA?^^

Mais pourquoi?

 - Mon français n'est pas assez complet pour expliquer pourquoi TWA est ce qu'il se fait de mieux en terme de jeu.

Quelle est la meilleure faction de la série?

 
- Les germains d'Arminus bien-entendu

Sur une échelle de Dalek à Mandalorian, combien d'un nerd êtes-vous?

 - J'ai pas compris la question^^

Choisissez un côté - Star Trek ou Star Wars?

 - Y en a d'autres des question comme celle ci?

Non sérieusement. Marvel ou DC?

I'm founder and leader of the SUNTZU clan. YouTuber and Twitch streamer and caster. I make both English and Polish content.  I organise tournaments and community events. I was playing Shogun: Total War when I was 5 years old when my partents bought my first PC. It was love at first sight and I played every Total War game since. 

 

Your favorite Total War game in the series is...
Not counting ARENA - Napoleon.

 

But why?
In my opinion it's the most skill dependent game in the series. In multiplayer there are many viable builds if only played correctly and army composition in relation to your enemy has lower impact.

 

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..
France in Napoleon. France is very high skill capped but if you are good enough to use all of it's strong points while covering weak points it will be the strongest faction.

 

On a scale from Dalek to Mandalorian, how much of a nerd are you? 
Yoda.

 

Pick a side - Star Trek or Star Wars?
After saying Yoda I have to go Star Wars.

 

No, seriously. Marvel or DC?
Why not both?

 

Which gaming platform is the greatest and why do you think it's the PC?
It has ARENA and other Total Wars. That alone outweights everything else.

Your favorite Total War game in the series is...

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

Used to stream ARENA full time and can't wait to be able to do so again.

 

Your favorite Total War game in the series is...

 

Total War: Arena, of course!

 

But why?

 

ARENA is a game that brought people together to have to work together or fail. Not entirely uncommon in games but definitely for a total war game!

A more personal note is that ARENA is perfect for twitch which is my primary content platform and I fell in love with the game!

 

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

 

Great Britain in Napoleon: Total War. Rule Britannia and all that!

Star Trek, hands down

Marvel, the films are just out of Dc's league!

I'm Corewin known for playing Siege and likes to talk about it on every thread on the forum that involves that topic :) I'm a nice guy rarely get's and believe that people do what they think is right no matter how stupid it is :) 

Your favorite Total War game in the series is...

Arena and on second place the first Rome game

But why?

Arena for the team play action more arcade like and only need to take care of 3 units. Rome for it's nice gameplay and fun battles 

What is the best faction in the series? Most certainly..

Don't have a favorite but Rome in TWA (Ceaser ftw)

On a scale from Dalek to Mandalorian, how much of a nerd are you? 

I like most things that is sci-fi / fantasy but never liked the older movies / series even if I was born 1987. 

Pick a side - Star Trek or Star Wars?

I'm more of a Star Wars fan but Star Trek is fun as well 

No, seriously. Marvel or DC?

Marvel all the time but DC is nice as well

Which gaming platform is the greatest and why do you think it's the PC?

PC is the best platform but when I got friends to visit nothing beats the couch co-op of my XBOX ONE and WiiU games.
