You got me all excited with the on sale thing, but it's only 10% off.  That doesn't really count as a sale!

Anyway, it is absolutely savaged on Steam reviews.  I know, you gotta take them with a grain of salt, but the negativity is pretty high, even for Steam.

All that said, this seems like a 50% off or more type title.

Yeah...this is the solitary TW title I do not own. Very little appeal to me.

I own it but still have not played it yet. Hope to play it in the next month or so. After a campaign of Warhammer.

Well, I think the negative reviews are due to the 'family' side, and that was hard for me to learn on Attila, but once I did it was ok. But just wondering if these even harder. I am/was definitely interested. But like Toonces said, its not a very deep sale. I can wait.

I gifted my friend at work Attila, that one was deep only 11 something!

I have played two campaigns of Warhammer - Norsca and the Tomb Kings. I enjoyed them both but didn’t win either, and I always felt like I wasn’t grasping everything entirely. So while I had planned on starting a vampire count campaign (I even downloaded a few mods) I am actually more in the mood right now to go back to Attila...maybe try another Hun campaign.

I would just wait for a stronger sale, Tuna.  We have some pretty aggressive sales likely in the next two months, what with Thanksgiving, Xmas, and Winter coming.  If you can hold out 6 months, no doubt there will be deep discounts around Three Kingdoms in March.

Three Kingdoms is the mythical Chinese game coming out in March.

Thrones of Britannia is the game set in 10th century British Isles which is out now.

^ I should have been more clear.  Sega is likely to discount Britannia when 3K comes out in March.  Capitalize on the hype and traffic going to the Total War pages type thingy.

That I can definitely see, especially since sales of Thrones of Britannia have been less than stellar.
