Dear Multiplaysters, Multiplayettes and everything in-between and left or right of that,
It is that time of the year where we all snuggle up with a pint of eggnog and think back of all the good and bad things that happened over the last 12 months. On the good side, lots and lots of you have bought TW:WH and our DLCs! Big thanks for that! As you have already noticed, we have put some of your investment straight back to work – literally – by recruiting avid Total War veteran, Finland’s Nr.1 A-ha Superfan CA_Duck to help out with all things Battles! Please be extra nice to him while he takes on me and units and characters and quest battles and all the lot.
Regarding bad things that happened in 2016… So needless to say, I’m odds and ends. Maybe it’s time for 2016 to stumble away, slowly learning that life is okay?
Back to topic: It is too early to interpret the data of the last patch yet, but following a recent discussion I thought I'd show you some of the units and characters least used in Quick Battles. Naturally, some units are less spotted in battles because not all players have access to it (DLC) or they are limited in the number you can bring (Regiments of Renown, Generals). I have therefore sorted the results into different categories.
Note that units that were buffed last patch were not added to this list as we are awaiting more data. They may well still be the least used units.

Balthasar Gelt on foot

Hope this gives you some food for thought over the weekend. As always, don’t forget you’re all the things I’ve got to remember, so don’t shy away.
Kind regards, Ato
