    Calm down? Calm down, you say Whelan? About Boris? NEVER! We will never calm down until we can lead the grand armies of Ulric and holy Middenland against the foul foes festering in these lands.

    We want Boris! We want Boris! Middenland! Middenheim! Give us, give us, give us!

    CA may have created a riot on the forum...

    Seriously though. We will pay you for Knights Panther, White Wolf, the Cult of Ulric, and the sainted Boris Todbringer! Make it so, Mr. Whelan! Let them know we demand Boris!

    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.

    I assume they mean 35 playable on the Mortal Empires campaign so those other three wouldn't go into that number.

    They did mean that, they just had a bit of a botch with Boris appearing alongside that LL counter showing the campaign playable LLs, despite being multiplayer battles exclusive. If Boris appeared anywhere else on the trailer or didn't appear at all, it wouldn't have caused the reactions that it is generating now.

    "Oh Todbringer was still just meant to be a multiplayer LL? Well, that's understandable, at least he wasn't at the part where the narration literally talks about the campaign playable Legendary Lords".

    Then he should not be shown along side seven other playable LLs (Tyrion, Morgianna, Durthu, Mannfred, Skrolk, Malekith & Khazrak) while the video at that exact moment advertised 35 playable LLs fighting over map dominance. When on the other hand the statement is that Boris is technicly a Lord, even if only in MP so he counts kinda, then the math is wrong since it should be 38 not 35.

    It's 35*, not 35 though somehow it's not that way in the video.

    It was 35* in the original ME poster.

    Meh. CA can hardly ever win and hindsight is 20/20. Clumsy yes. But only because so many slight hints are made almost certain confirmations.

    It was 35* in the original ME poster.
    This poster?
    That can mean literally anything, starting with the two missing Norsca charakters up to the "We know Tomb Kings come as DLC and bring at least 2 new LLs". As a White Knight shield for this situation right here, it is worthless.
    We talk about this video, which clearly specifies 35. In voice and text. For this weeks patch. Which is also the same number we had in the blog entry some weeks ago and the same number you could add in your head by counting all playable LLs while leaving Norsca out and not count the three MP chars.

    And the situation is still
    A)Boris is shopped into that video as an error (maybe should have switched with the later seen Franz) since he does not count for the advertised playable LLs or
    B)he is a MP Lord, so he counts. Which means the math is wrong or
    C)it was a intentional tease for "later" or
    D)it was a intentional cruel joke.

    If purple comments insist on the MP statement that is imo not so clear what situation we have.
    Which could mean
    1.)after the worst kept secret with Skaven as fourth race, here we go again for playable Middenheim or
    2.)nobody wants to say "Mistakes were made".

    Addendum for the 35* thing
