Adding acknowledgments to the creators of helpful content to the credits of Total War: Warhammer III is a nice gesture. Unless you forget one of the greatest, and this is what it looked like from the point of view of a certain “legend”.
Creative Assembly decided to highlight some fans of the Total War: Warhammer sub-series, who helped polish the highly anticipated Immortal Empires mode. At least that’s what it looked like from the perspective of gamers, who were surprised to see that the the developers had overlooked one of the greatest content creators associated with Total War: Warhammer 3.
End credits not for Legend?
When players noted that the game’s end credits included a “special thank you” to Immortal Empires beta participants, some fans pointed out the absence of several people involved in testing. In some cases, this might be justified, such as the person’s inactivity for the past few months.
However, this does not explain why Legend of Total War was not included in the list. This youtuber is not only one of the most popular content creators associated with the brand (but the most popular). He’s the one who started a petition demanding that Empires of the Immortal be made available to all purchasers of Total War: Warhammer 3. Until two months ago, the mode required ownership of the entire the TWW trilogy.
immortal empires for all
Legend was also among the players who criticized the third installment of Total War: Warhammer. He couldn’t really make it during the pre-launch shows (because he and the other contestants were bound by the rules imposed by Creative Assembly under the threat of exclusion from the content development program), but after his debut he spoke harshly. on the game (especially the Kingdom of Chaos mechanics in the campaign).
Moreover, the youtuber was unhappy with the developer for not accepting the criticism not only from him, but also from the other fans involved. At least that’s what he said on his YouTube channel more than a year ago.

The upshot is that Legend has been out of Creative Assembly’s content development program for months (via the Legend of Total War video on March 15). For the same reason, the Internet user, as it is claimed, could have been excluded from the credits, even if, as a post on Blood – the study promised to include all participants.
Legend (Aryan ego)
It should be noted that Legend of Total War not only has a large following. The aforementioned complaints during the broadcast were full of emotion, and years ago the youtuber became known for his explosive and unpleasant character (although, as some point out, he is now much more in control of his temper) .
As a result, some netizens read his post as an attack on the creators included in the credits (rather baseless) or dismiss him as someone with a booming ego and concerned only with his own well-being (read: video money in Total War : Warhammer III posted on YouTube).
However, more TWW Fans were surprised by the absence from the credits, as a reminder, of one of the most popular content creators associated with the brand. Internet users explain this with either Creative Assembly’s reluctance or a simple oversight.
Explicit Creative Assembly
A little later, Legend posted another post. The developers contacted him and explained to him that The acknowledgments added this time are not intended for those affiliated with the Immortal Empires beta. Your participants will be added to the credits at a later date.

Therefore, the question can be considered clarified. However, the youtuber is surprised that it took Creative Assembly over 9 months to add more “credits” (because that’s how long it’s been since the Immortal Empires beta test). Other players are also unconvinced by the developer’s explanation, seeing it as evidence of miscommunication with the community or keeping face.
