What new factions should the devs add after Prussia?
« on: February 12, 2018, 11:44:18 pm »
I was just thinking, after they add in Prussia, Austria, Russia (the obvious Majors). What minor participants should they add?
I personally would like some allies for Napoleon. Like Denmark, Spain, Italy and Rhine.

Netherlands and America in the game would also be nice (long term)

I want the Ottomans in the game. They're so different from what we had in NW, I think they'll be a nice change of scene.

I don't think the U.S.A. would be a good idea to add because they weren't really involved in the war.

Portugal, Spain, the Rhine, Italy, Naples and I guess Tyrol, Serbian rebels and Spanish guerillas in their own right if you want more minor factions. These'd be the main factions considering the game is set in 1809. Also Russia, Persians and the Ottomans if you want to represent the Russo-Persian and Russo-Turkish wars. Mainly Portugal though !!

IMO it would be pretty pointless to add nations that barely or didn't even fight in any conflicts during the game's time frame before one's that did, or add factions without a logically enemy for them to fight. I think a good work around would to be implement factions as conflicts instead of standalone factions if they didn't fight in the Peninsular War or the 5th War of the Coalition. So if Russia were added next, it would be logical to add Persia or the Ottoman Empire with them (actually I forgot about the Anglo-Russian War whoops), while if Austria was added, it could be added as a faction on its own as it fought France in the game's time period. Then again, people are impatient.

Edit: this actually seems pretty tedious please don't do this.

Other than flavor, I see no reason to have multiple Nations when it is only two sided conflict.

Spain and then Portugal, this game is perfect for the Peninsular War.

I am sure that after Prussia is added, the development team will create a new poll in which the community can vote on if I had to say so myself it'd probably be Russia or Confederation Rein

Cavalry and cannon as well as other mechanics like formation respawns. Even the art department should be onto all of this. Progression system. New factions are meaningless without game mechanics in first. As the game stands I find it exceptionally boring. It's one giant inaccurate skirmish of randomness, you run all the way to the front to die from some random shot from other skirmishers and then do it again. I want it to be a napoleonic formations and combined arms tactics bonanza with progression to play for.
"FORMATION mechanic that allows formation members to respawn back into them."

Factions I'd like to see added in order: Russia (huge meme potential, naval battles too), Austria (only makes sense), Ottoman Empire (memes and naval battles), United States (Naval battles), Duchy of Warsaw (memes), and then the Rhine Confederation and Spain in any order.
