    I don't know what you expected CA but this is now an official Boris Todbringer Thread!

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

    @CA_Whelan
    Come on, how could you not know this would 100% happen? And I'm sorry but it's kindda justified, this video is named "what is ME?", not "What are combined WH1*2 custom battles?". This is honestly a really bad move if you're not being facetious.

    Gents, ye know... tomorrow in the stream... in the chat... the whole Time:

    "Where's Boris?!"
    "We want Boris!"
    "Middenheim, please!"
    "Give us playable Boris and Middenland!"
    #RIP BORIS! KILLED BY CA AND GW WITH SHORTSIGHTED CRUELTY JUST TO SHOVE KOSTALTYN DOWN OUR THROATS!

    The Empire still hasn't gotten their FLC LL. We need Marius Leitdorf of Averland!

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him? For a Middenland DLC with Boris and the Ar-Ulric!

    Every wrong is recorded. Every slight against us, page after page, ETCHED IN BLOOD!

    Queek could smell their hatred, ratcheted to a degree that even he could not evoke in their simple hearts. He stepped over the old orange-fur’s body, eager to see for himself what it was they saw. But he heard it first.

    We will do it. For Ulric.

    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?
    You use a convincing argument.

    And if this doesn't help we will open thread after thread with "Why does CA hate Boris Todbringer?"!

    Technically it's only for custom battles, because he is not starting lord for multiplayer campaigns.

    @CA_Whelan you could admit it was an imprudence by you guys, and could immagine the reactions...

    Really, the main focus of the video was about the Campaign ..
  • DerpyRoxasDerpyRoxas Registered Users Posts: 3,343

    Middenlander, show them our wolfy might all together!
    But not our Elector Count! Not today. He is playing cards with the Red Duke in multiplayer!

    Yes, showing Count Boris who is still not a full legendary lord, is triggering for a lot of players.
  • NazredNazred Senior Member Registered Users Posts: 974

    The thing is a lot of us don't want Gelt or Volkmar moved out of Altdorf. So the possibility of having Boris Toddbringer as the new empire sub-faction was like the saviour we could use.

    It's kind of a slap in the face to showcase him as one of the LL on the campaign map to only say that it was just because he is included in custom/multiplayer battle which we already knew. Instead of moving Balthasar or Volkmar just give us Boris as so many on this forum want. Why is this so hard?

    It's a nice marketing video, but i would have preferred to see just a simple faq that summarizes the known information and maybe give some answers, what to expect from mortal empires in the future.

    Actually, there is so much speculation about cut's, balancing, etc. (especially on reddit), that a official faq rather than individual answers to certain posts would have been nice.

    With Mortal empires can you actually lose as in the Vortex campaign i.e someone completes their vic conditions quicker?
    Just as a warning against making predictions- https://forums.totalwar.com/discussion/290416/time-to-admit-there-will-be-no-new-dlc-for-twwh-2#latest

    Anyone using the term 'iconic' incorrectly to pad out their dumb argument will be subject to immediate Bloodthirster summoning.

    probably not as it would hurt someones sandbox.

    Well, they were obviously trolling the Asur fans early on. Who's to say they're not moving on to the original punching bag faction's fans?

    Sir, please stop the off topic comments.
    This is a Boris Todbringer only thread.

    Thank you.

    Only in so far as CA not be able to do anything without it immediately being taken as a virtual confirmation that they are working on someone or others' pet hopey project.

    When CA releases hard solid info on something you can be excused for thinking it's coming. Otherwise one is just potentially trolling oneself for no good reason setting oneself up for disappointment if one managed to troll oneself hard enough.
