Tom and Ben mentioned they were playing in "Romance" mode, hence heros and generals being really powerful. And they have experience playing total war anyway and usually make up their own goals rather than follow preset ones.

Combat seems to be quite fast, and heroes are very powerful. Maybe too much so as people are using them very offensively. Early game battles seem to involve mostly sending your heroes to duel, defeating the enemy general then watching the rest of their army flee. Though this apparently is harder to do as armies move beyond militia a get higher stats and moral.
Supposedly the demo was tweaked to be faster so that press people who are not good at Total War could still get a feel for the game. Supposedly.
I remember someone said they went straight to legendary but apparently it didn't matter because difficulty is locked to normal for the press events and demo.

That is very much like how war works in the book.

Achtually ROTK is not Wuxia, that'd be like saying a movie on the war of seccession is a western. With that said I would pay real good money for a good wuxia game. I hope scroll of Taiwu gets translated to english soon.

Ah, yes. I remember doing something similar to hold off the mongols by charging their generals with mines, the morale drops causing them all to flee.

The big damn heroes thing is fun to watch and certainly highlighted more by the early stages of the campaign people are playing. Perhaps, as was suggested by Indypride, a future hands on should give people a campaign that's several turns in to get a different feel for combat and diplomacy.

I thought it would be similar enough but I'll change it to something else in that case. The only Wuxia game I really know about is "Legend of Wulin Heroes", though I don't know if it's got an english translation.

Total War games being as they are... arn't generals super easy to kill?  Even in romance mode, generals dueling each other to the death.
Or are they doing things differently here?

It looks like they're going for a Warhammer-esque level of power on the Romance mode generals. Sure, in the historical games (and mode) they're just another guy, and thus die easily, but Romance mode is leaning towards the one man vs an army dynasty warriors style.

The historical/romance split seems to be a classical TW/Warhammer TW style split, to me.

Sort of. Apparently if a hero survives long enough in a duel, you can pull them out without a morale loss.

The duels themselves seem to have more about them than just sending your hero to attack the enemy hero. One of the videos has a battle where the enemy hero refused to agree to a duel until the battle had gone on for a while as a way of proving the duel was worth the enemy hero's time. Maybe this is related to your heroes level in relation to the enemies or perhaps it's a quirk of that particular character.

Apparnetly you can also use other characters to buff your own duelist. It's not cheating, it's cheering!
