30-10-2002, 05:57:01
The title will be Medieval: Total War - Albion's Terms, and will feature a substantial campaign set in Britian.

Improvements will be made to the turn based aspects of the game, particularly new city building options. Following on the success of the non-combat features in Stronghold, players will be able to establish pubs, archery ranges, and football fields for their citizens, and can establish ordances and edicts relating to the management of these new features.

Additional details have yet to be finalised. Nav is a twat.

actually I'm thinking of doing a MWT review, to offer some perspective on Venom's. But I need inspiration. Maybe Venom can give the tel number of his beach girl friend?

I didn't actually read your post until this morning when I saw you mentioned that it was TW:AT and I had to check that they hadn't really called it that. :lol:

I haven't seen any mention of MTW anywhere, certainly nothing to do with an expansion:). Venom's review is all I know of it, plus some stuff from reviews of the previous game, STW

Ok, love symbol, I'm off to a long week end now
so you be a good boy and stay away from cheap albanian prostitutes.

by the way there is no add on or expantion announced yet, most of the fans would right now be satisfied just with a patch (some problems of crashes with XP apparently, plus a number of bugs).

Shining1

We have an All Black team somewhere overseas at the moment?:confused:

I thought it was just a confusing second string list of NPC players. And Jonah Lomu.

If they beat anything it will be interesting. Seriously, this is even more of a development team than last years one. The ABs management has designated the European tour a priority zero event, it seems.

England need to play OUTSIDE of Europe before they can be considered a threat to anything. Instead of just repeatedly hosting games at Twickenham.

Believe me, when they step out onto the grounds of Stadium Australia, to find there AREN'T 50000 English right next to the field screaming their support, they won't know what hit them.

Look at it as a conditioning exercise - one designed so you have no hope at all of winning the world cup. Meanwhile, it puts the southern hemisphere teams through utter hell in the lead up. Who do you think's going to prosper from this?

Hmmm... I don't know of any places to get rugby results but I'm sure we do a tour of the southern nations each year.

I'm sure this All Black team will be good, they always are. It's not like I've heard of any of their first team players either. :beer:

Sean
05-11-2002, 12:40:54
Shining: is that why NZ decided not to play us when they played Ireland? Like I said: you don’t want your first team beaten by England anywhere, so you didn’t tour.

Funkodrom: we toured Argentina, after we couldn’t go to the South Sea Islands or South Africa. Looks like a strange kind of dance.

Funkodrom
05-11-2002, 12:45:47
Ah yes that's right. Before that was the Lions tour of Australia and before that South Africa I think?

No-one wants to play us before the World Cup?

Shining1
06-11-2002, 00:43:39
Sean: I have no idea why the tour itinery was setup that was, but given that you already had games against Australia and South Africia at the same time there, it's highly likely that one or other side couldn't fit the match into their schedule.

Or, perhaps that English requirements of the All Blacks were far stricter than those of the Irish and Scottish unions, so we went there instead.

Oh, and we're playing you this Sunday. And not Ireland or Scotland. So it would be rather dull, not to mention highly offensive to the Scottish and Irish unions, if we just played England and France all the time and ignored them.

But I guess none of that matters to you or the wider fraternity of English sports nerds, who just want to see the All Blacks beaten at Twickenham so they can proclaim the English side number one in the world. Oh, no, wait, they've already done that, without even playing the All Blacks anywhere. But fancy anyone standing up the mighty, wonderful England to go and play Ireland! Or Scotland! The utter nerve!

You twat.

06-11-2002, 08:20:14
the first string team would get some competition?

Shining1
06-11-2002, 09:05:13
A fair point. Actually, it's a side supposedly picked from all the best players in the NPC this year (and Jonah), so it's an interesting test of a theory. I'm not sure it will work very well, since there hasn't been any chance really for the 'team' stuff to be worked out, which is so critical in Rugby. This is almost a Barbarian's side in terms of cohesion and preparation.

But we also tried playing the Canterbury Crusaders as the All Blacks this year and it didn't work either. What Mitchell is seeking is a team that can play and win in Australia against Australia. The genesis of it might well be found here.

At the moment, I'd make the following game prediction, but no score, because it will so close (hopefully) it will come down to the bounce of a ball to decide things one way or another. But England, while they've massively improved their backline, has failed to adopt modern forward techniques, and will again have 8 mighty ancient behemoths out of breath after 60 minutes, at which point the All Blacks will be able to get back into the game.

It will take about as long for the All Black forwards to get the cohesion required to properly run over the English side and keep the ball. I'm hoping the backline play will be a bit more conservative this time round, the lesson from the Tri-series is that the All Blacks threw too many iffy passes and failed to keep the ball in hand enough.

The AB's ace in the hole? Coach John Mitchell - assistant coach to Clive Woodward for a couple of seasons, and someone who will know all the weaknesses of the English pack.

Oh, and it will be a brilliant game, whatever happens. If a settled, well drilled England run over top of the AB B side, it can only set up the rematch at the world cup perfectly. If they lose, it'll be the wakeup call I think they need.

maroule
06-11-2002, 10:44:54
interesting
- for cohesion, most teams will have the same problem, look at France fielding 5 new players against SAF this saturday, and a key player that did not play international rugby for 2 years. Too many/frequent injuries means the ideal team will hardly be ever found again
- what's your game prediction of the France/AB game coming up?

Shining1
06-11-2002, 10:52:08
I never make predictions about France/All Blacks games.
