    BORIS, WHILE MENTIONING LLS! FOR MIDDENLAND! FOR ULRIC!

    "As long as the fire of the Great Temple lasts, Middenheim and Middenland will never fall."

    —Boris Todbringer, Elector of Middenheim[1a]

    Boris Todbringer, known by his full title as Elector Count Boris Todbringer, Graf of Middenheim, Grand Duke of Middenland, Prince of Carroburg, Protector of the Drakwald, Warden of the Middle Mountains, Beloved of Ulric,[8a]

    Yes! to Boris Todbringer as playable, subfaction leading Legendary Lord with Starting Position Middenheim instead for the Empire! NO to the lazy way of moving Gelt and Volkmar who both belong to Reikland!

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him?

    I wouldn't read too much into Boris showing up alongside legendary lords in this video. Oftentimes, these videos are developed by people outside the development team who are just looking for a good visual - not an accurate representation of what is going to be in the game. My guess is his inclusion wasn't meant to indicate anything other than a designer thinking he looked good in that shot.

    It is likely we will get him eventually (hopefully), but I wouldn't expect him Thursday.

    Well, he is playable in MP already.

    Sorry couldn’t resist. I’ll see myself out.

    I made a thread about this in the past. Seems I was right if they release Boris and Red Duke for ME.

    Boris is available in multiplayer/custom battles, that's why he's included in the video. Calm down guys!

    Yeah... i wouldn't be surprised if the guys making the Video found Boris in the Lord selection screen of the Empire or so and went "OK, He's an Empire LL, lets include him. He fits more with Tyrion etc. than Gelt or Volkmar"

    But still BELOVED OF ULRIC OR RIOT!

    CA is trolling us, they like to troll their audience once in a while ;) Brois is available only in MP, at least in the foreseeable future (so until Norsca gets implemented and their next big DLC comes in)

    Anyone who said that CA wouldn't troll us was just proved wrong. See, while my Skaven prediction was wrong, the premise wasn't.

    that reason is a bit like saying:

    "Mongols, Timurids and Atztecs are usable in multiplayer/custom battles in Medieval II" After a video like the Mortal Empires video has been made, showing these three factions while talking about the number of playable factions

    By default now or still need Beastmen DLC and completed the campaign?
  • PaulHPaulH Posts: 1,185Registered Users
    I agree, we need old one-eye as an LL, rather than ignoring lore by moving Volkmar or Balthasar Gelt to get a second imperial start position.

    Though I'd still rather Mad Marius Leitdorf. They could give him an incredibly fun set of skills and campaign mechanics to do with his madness, we could have his horse in the advisor panel, we could declare wars on bees and fishmen, and cause bretonnia to launch crusades because we call their wifes ugly. That's the kind of campaign I want. :D

    Why not both?

    Which means a lot of cuts for the new world's map and lack of updates for the old world's factions.
    4 Fully Independent Monogods Armies would be great for a Storyline about the Great Game in Total War: Warhammer 3.
