Guys, quick question here:
After some skirmish to learn the basics about TPC, I just started the campaign.
(Loved the time magic feature)
I've decided to try and go with the option to fortify my camp. That was ruthless!! I barely managed to win, but got a stryke of luck.
After that, allied with the elves and humans, and soon after helped the barbarians vs Swarm, where I enlisted both.
Since I'm unnable to play with the undead race for now, I went with the swarm and the plaguelords. Got the plaguelords keep research on 3, and one of the three swarm factions on 4, but.....Why the hell all of the missions that I have now only let me build the keep and stay with the lvl2 upgrade?
About the missions: Search for the Dragon on the mountain pass, prepare the ritual for the white council teleport or search for dragon cultists. The dragon cultist one is just barbaric. The friendly AI does basically nothing besides protecting itself and let the main hero to deal with (more or less) 4 enemies. So, again: Why all of those missions focus on locking the keep to lvl2 even if I researched the other upgrades? In the 1st run on the desert, I found it fun. But 30min on game, it just seen pointless. It's impossible to go against that damn horde.
Oh, and all of them say "replayable". It's for the purpose of "all of them are tough and I need to gitgud" or the Undead part for the protectors campaign just ends here?
