Multiple Nation Battles!

Multiple Nation Battles!

One thing that I think could be pretty cool is if there was a ability to have multiple nations playable on both sides. Before I get into this just wan't to say that if this was to become a thing it would more than likely not be until more countries got added to the game (obviously)

Anyway so how this would work.

On the server you could set it so Team 1 for example select a unit from 1 of 2 countries set for that team and Team 2 could select a unit from another 1 of the 2 countries set for their team, this would result in the ability to have multiple nation battles... You could see the likes of France & Spain take on Britain and Russia! Whilst this feature isn't necessary in any shape or form for the game to function, I think it'd be quite a fun feature to have and could maybe add some extra depth to events and public servers.

Let me know what you think about this idea below and we can discuss the pros and the cons of it :)

This. I thought of it a while ago for Bannerlord NW and I was gonna post it here but it was stuck at the back of my head.

Would be good, but needs to be implemented properly, it can be made very wrong that would give one team a very large advantage. Be careful here.

Depending on how balanced each nation is, it could be an interesting idea.

Server size, it could be argued, might come into play here as well. If there's only going to be a small number of server slots available initially, then there's no point in having two nations with 25 men a piece on each team. It would just look silly.

75v75 would be minimum server size for this I think

Personally, I'd find it interesting to see, since the game is based in 1809, whether it will be featuring Portugal and Spain. Imagine 2v2 Battle - France, Bonapartist Spain vs. Great Britain, Portugal. That would be one hell of a site, but I really need to hear from the developers, if their focus is put in that conflict - The Peninsular War. This could be the Second Portuguese Campaign and the possibilities are plentiful.

Also, I would find it myself more interesting to add the Rheinbund faction as an ally of France. Wurttemberg Line Infantry, Bavarian Line Infantry, Saxon Grenadiers, Nassau Voltigeurs, Hessian Jaegers, Hessian Militia/Line Infantry. Yeah that'd be interesting, even if going a bit offtopic.
