It is the year of 2023. The Great War against Chaos has ended. But even though The Empire claimed victory, the peace, which the citizens of The Empire had waited for, didn't come. Many thousands of bloodthirsty followers of Chaos spread across the lands of Ostland, hiding in the Forest of Shadows, pillaging Empire villages, raiding caravans and slaughtering numerous innocents. Soon after the war ended, Chaos marauders of Norsca, led by N, performed a raid on Gauschdorf. It proved to be surprisingly successful, as the desperate and exhausted Empire troops, guarding the outpost, were not yet ready for a massive attack of the Great Enemy. Neither was the garrison of Schönfeld, which quickly moved to aid the outpost guards in the attack. Ultimately, they were slain in the name of the Dark Gods. The furious warbands of marauders evidently captured Schonfeld, which led on to N establishing a Chaos outpost close to the city, inspired by the success of the battle. Many battle-hardened champions and warriors of Chaos wished to be led into battle by Blabla, who started forming another horde to finish off the Empire once and for all..

Briefly, it's going to be a quest-based singleplayer mod, backed up with an imaginary story happened after The Storm Of Chaos.

What's done so far: 1. Simple rank system allowing player to hire better troops. Right now it's renown based, but it will be adjusted to quest as soon as we have them done.

2. Population. Now recruits don't appear from nowhere, each settlement has certain population and a certain number of recruits. Lords use this system, too, draining nation's manpower.

3. New recruiting systems for both Empire and Chaos. It gives player some more reasons to develop their character. The higher is player's rank, the better units are vailable to be hired. Lords use this system, too, thus only the most honourable lords can upgrade veteran infantry into Greatswords, for example.

4. Different small stuff.

- Test event which happens at the end of the first week
- "Nordland Refugees", it levels population of Salkalten up.
- Destroyable villages.
- Permanent war between factions.
- New bandits.
- New map (WIP).
- Player can use weapon only of his own faction.
- All troops, which are not of player's faction are removed from it.
- Unique bodyguards for faction leaders.

What's planned:Everything you ever knew about GA.

We need:1. Scripters2. Artists.Alpha-testThere is a closed aloha version which is needed to be tested. I still need a couple of testers.

Cya.

I'm not entirely sure where to upload it, so that it's available in China. But if you gave me a link to a file storage of somekind, which is not banned in your country, I would upload the mod there.

I see from the recent update that the server is up. What's the name of it because I still can't find it.

When ever I open it with the WSE Loader there are zero servers open. I can still play bot matches by myself but that's it.

Even with just the bots this mod looks great. Great job on you and your team, even without Furok you guys are doing one hell of job.

It's called WGA_Event.

I would also like to pint it one more time: the server takes up to 2 minutes to appear in the server list.

It's supposed to find only those servers, which run the mod. Currently there is only one. It also takes some time (up to 2 minutes) to find it.

Can I suggest something? Perhaps create a steam group. Hell, if you want, I'll make one for you, but give the name of the server and then set up events for large groups of people to know when there a full servers? It worked with the Source mod Exterminatus, it really took off due to the amount of players the steam group pulled in.

Yep, thank you for your advice! We intended to make the Steam group, but first we needed to make the balance sound. As soon as everything is playable enough, we'll start arranging events.

What did i miss since i cant find any Kislevites nor
new gametypes or maps when im starting a bot server!?
Also why are the chaos chars unplayable with helmet
slit huds? Anyway thanks for the other working contents!

P.S.: Could it be because i did use the normal WB launcher
because with the batch the game asks for reactivation and
not accepts the serial number again?

Hello! The mod is in alpha stage, and we work hard to improve it. So not everything is in there yet, but since Furok left modding, I can't promise that Kislevites will be in at all. Though I work on some new models, and hopefully the range of classes will be enriched soon.

Concerning the buggy Chaos warriors. Yes, it's nesessary to launch the WSELoader.exe to get them work properly. Please, visit this thread: Moddb.com
