Recruitment in Three Kingdoms now depends on characters rather than on factions itself so it means every faction will now have different unit roster depend on whom heroes you pick. *What will happen to retinue after the character who recruited them dies? -Will they disband or will they work for another character?
*Will each hero going to have specialty in their unit roster? - Example, Ma Teng (Xiliang) specializes in cavalry so does it mean his units of cavalry will have more men per unit compared to other cavalry units?
*Armies now are divided into several retinues led by a hero -Retinue means a group of soldiers led by a hero so units are now automatically grouped. If a general wants to order all of his units to do a formation, does he have the flexibility to do so? If he wants all his units under his retinue to form a single shield wall, will all of his units of the same type merge to form a single shield wall? Hope Retinue means fighting together side by side rather than just fighting in the same army.
*Will swapping of units per retinue allowed? - Will you be able to share your units to another retinue? Every retinue now depends on the hero itself so it must be personalized. Units must only stay in the retinue of the hero who recruited them.
*How are Characters going to differ from another character of the same hero class? - If you want to hire a certain unit, do you need to hire a specific character or can you hire this unit from the same hero class also? If you have three Champions, will all of them going to have an identical roster?
*Will 3 Heroes per army going to restrict your army composition? - Before, an army can consist of ALL unit types. Now, will only 3 unit types are allowed per army?
*Will each hero class going to have the same unit cap? - Will Commander, Strategist, Guardian, Vanguard and Champion going to have the same unit cap each or will it vary as long as they fill the army cap?
*Will Heroes just going to unlock units or will they going have their own units disregarding which faction they work for? - Will there be fixed set of units for every faction that is going to be unlocked regarding whom Hero you have or will heroes going to hire exactly the same units disregarding which faction they are currently working for?
