I must say I never expected to find a Romance of the Three Kingdoms fan on Jazzfanz. ROTK 11 is my most played one and entry which should tell you how ****ing big a franchise it is.

I will definitely get back to the franchise after some more Crusader Kings 3. Though, I will play Total War version, I can't shake the feeling that it won't feel the same as KOEI games.
I was a teen when I was playing ROTK III and I wasn't a very fast typer. I used to either start as Cao Cao or Liu Bei (eventually I started playing as Liu Bei almost exclusively) and one time when I was on the verge of victory I got out a notebook and wrote down the stats of every general in my command. I asked my sister (who was an extremely fast and accurate typist, she was working for the post office in their remote encoding center where she typed in addresses that popped up on a screen that could not be read by the automated system) to make a database for me so that I could reference it in future games when deciding which generals to recruit or use espionage on.

I was ridiculously into that game. I think I've played it through at least 30 times.

I got into Romance of the Three Kingdoms through Dynasty Warriors and devoured the wiki on characters as a teen and then read the book so I was familiar with the characters and ROTK 11 was so much more user friendly.

I almost always started as Sun. They don't start big or have too many officers but almost all of them are quality. And I liked the what if version since both Sun Quan and Sun Ce died young.

For non ROTK players, there are hundreds of generals. Hundreds. There's no "procedural" BS in this game. The characters are the same from one playthrough to the next and they are based on historical figures.

ROTK all the way!

Also that kind of note-taking is how I learned English. I played Civ 3 and Diablo 2 with a dictionary in my hand.

Playing Civilization games is how I learned world geography. I would almost always play on an earth map with historical starting locations.

Quick update.

I wanted to upgrade to a Ryzen 5900x but wasn't able to get one. I was able to get a 5600x on launch day. Going from a 3600xt to the 5600x made way more of an impact than I would have expected. I have PC Mark and 3D Mark scores from 3600xt/GTX 1070 to 3600xt/RTX 3080, then 5600x/RTX 3080. Pretty significant uplift each time (biggest going from the 1070 to 3080).

So now my system is:
Ryzen 5600x CPU
Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card (Gigabyte gaming OC)
32gb (4x8gb) 3600mhz CL14 RAM (Trident Z Neo)
ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming
1TB Samsung Evo 960 NVME M.2 SSD
1TB Intel 660P NVME M.2 SSD
Samsung Odyssey G7 32" Monitor (1440p, 240hz, 1ms GTG, HDR, 1000R Curved)

Really really happy with it. Not worried about getting a 5900x anytime soon, but if I can I'd like to and I'll move my 5600x to my VR PC that also has an X570 motherboard, currently running the 3600xt I took out of my system.
