Prussia was sort of the turning point in the battle of Waterloo. Without the aid of Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher the battle would have surely been lost

As the 17th of June 1815 drew to a close, Wellington's army had arrived at its position at Waterloo, with the main body of Napoleon's army following. Blücher's army was gathering in and around Wavre, around 8 miles (13 km) to the east of the city. Early on the morning of the 18th, Wellington received an assurance from Blücher that the Prussian army would support him. He decided to hold his ground and give battle.

If Waterloo hadn't happened, another battle would have ended Napoleon.  He simply did NOT have the Grand Armee he used to, and his return to the field was hampered by bad decisions.

A single good decision does not override that, for the majority of the Coalitions, Prussia was a non-contender.

If Prussia community thoughts that Waterloo gives priority to other factions. This is a sign of great ignorance and lack of knowledge. Go and read some books about period or maby Wikipedia. FFS. Waterloo was the frosting on the cake but we want a cake, not frosting!

In the end it's a computer game and what should count is what the majority of customers want. If most people want certain nations, then it means that more people will buy and continue to play the game, if these nations are present. This will not only ensure that more players find their way into the community, it will also raise the income for the development and ensure that the game will progress further.  I don't see a problem in that.  :)

The Prussians should have their early uniforms with the bicorn hats.

I'm sorry, but that's false equivalence.  The people voting now more than likely already have the game, so the inclusion of ANY new faction would bring your desired effect, regardless of the nationality.  If you truly care about the sales and market value of this game, you'd be asking for the inclusion of America.

The poll favors Prussia but it was Austria who made the main war effort against Napoleon throughout all the conflict, by far, both in resources and manpower / casualties. And thus it would deserve the first introduction as a faction in my opinion, before Prussia or Russia.

I guest Northern German players just don't feel represented by Austria... But as an Alsatian I would rather have the whitecoats in before damn Prussia!

The Prussians should have their early uniforms with the bicorn hats.

I agree with that, so far we have uniforms roughly fitting 1807-1808 I believe, both in French and British faction: French have the long cut uniform, not the Bardin design yet, the british still have the bearskins and the stovepipes. So Prussia should have discarded the kaskett and wear bicorn hats, grenadiers would wear the SYW like mitre caps. And we shouldn't see any of these black brunswicker guys who were created in the late period.

This isn't a poll to determine who played the biggest role in the wars; it's to determine which nation you personally want to see first.
