Total War: Rome 2, while so far seemingly being a popular entry in the series, has come under some backlash in the last week due to a perceived increase by players in the number of female generals that are spawning in the game.
While the complaints seem inexplicable and a little late, being the feature was introduced the game way back in March, many players are arguing that the number of female generals spawning in the game has recently increased, and as such it is not reflecting a realistic picture of history.
The strange part, however, is that there's been no update or any evidence found to suggest the rate of female generals spawning has changed since the March update, so it's taken nearly 6 months for the 1,144 negative reviews on the matter to start appearing. Indeed, the developer itself has come out to say the following via Twitter;
So it seems that while it may be possible that certain factions, in certain situations, may be seeing some more female generals, the complaints on Steam do seem a little overblown, especially given that it's fairly trivial to mod the game to remove female generals altogether, or change statistics, should players wish to do so.
Do you feel the complaints are justified, or is this much to do about nothing? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
