I’ve been playing a lot of Total War: Warhammer 3 recently and as many of you know it’s an incredibly strategy game that, most importantly for me, also has a great many ways to play a necromantic faction. In fact that was the thing that drew me into it, and the world of Warhammer Fantasy, in the first place. However after playing for a while I’ve actually found something interesting, I’m enjoying playing Warriors of Chaos more than any other faction.
Now that’s of course odd, the faction certainly isn’t Necromantic and with the plethora of ways to actually play an undead race, including a very well done Nagash mod, why would I choose to play Warriors of Chaos more? Simple, they’re more fun to play. Specifically I like to play as Be’lakor, the interesting looking demon you see above, as he not only can play with a large variety of demon units in his armies but he also can open portals around the world to teleport armies into various locations, like a true invasion from another world. It’s a great faction, and all the mechanics work so well to me, not to mention you can essentially fill out your armies with rosters of power-armored warriors which is badass.
So then the question becomes while I love the undead and playing any form of Necromantic faction, is enjoying this demonic faction a strange diversion? There’s not many other games which I’d rather play a demonic character over a necromantic one so is this just a fluke? Perhaps, as the game is well designed and the demons were given a lot of love, but this may just be the argument of playing what you enjoy vs playing what is fun. Personally the 2 often mix together for me, but it seems in this instance that fun may just win out for me. I guess I’ll see as time goes on if I still like playing Chaos over Necromancers in future playthroughs, but I can’t imagine that changing anytime soon.
However I want to know what you all think. Do you prefer to play something that you love, or play something that is more fun? Let us know in the comment section! That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
