‘Total War: Warhammer’ DLC Release Date, News & Update: Hotfix Beta Brings Minor Rebalancing To Some Wood Elves Units! More Details
The latest "Total War: Warhammer" DLC named Realm of the Wood Elves certainly live to its developers expectations. While it was heaven-sent to certain players with the patience and the inclination for micromanaging, it was not well-received for other gamer types with its attention to detail requirement.
However, Creative Assembly has been actively listening to customer feedbacks and concurs that there are indeed valid points raised with the recent "Total War: Warhammer" DLC. As such, the developer has released a hotfix beta that should do some minor rebalancing of the noted areas of concern, as stated in the Total War Wiki site.
For instance, there have been reports and complaints by gamers about that the Waywatchers. These ranged units introduced by the recent "Total War: Warhammer" DLC were reported to be underpowered, or at least underperforming, with some players even speculating that it had to be a bug.
Apparently, it is not a glitch at all but had something to do with the range of the new units introduced by the "Total War: Warhammer" Realm of the Wood Elves DLC. Creative Assembly agrees that the range given to the units are a bit too short to be effective. In the hotfix beta, the units are now given a greater missile range which is increased by 20 as well as additional boost in Armour Piercing damage by 4.
Creative Assembly had to disagree on some observations regarding the Forest Dragon, another unit introduced by the recent "Total War: Warhammer" DLC. Some say that the new units are a bit weak and would quickly fall apart when thrown into the fray. However, the developer insists that Forest Dragons are best used as supporting units with their poison attacks with could lessen the enemy's damage output while slowing them down. In addition, healing the Forest Dragon is easy with Life casters.
True enough,upgrading of the Wood Elves to playable race by the "Total War: Warhammer" DLC is not meant for everyone. Some say that the playstyle required to win using the race is a bit exhausting but to players who prefer micromanaging, it offers a vastly enjoyable gameplay.
