Bring back historical political party names for the greeks

Before the PP update, the greek factions had unique names for their parties, now they just have the generic "Disciples of Zeus, Disciples of Poseidon, etc." Some of these included:

Athenai (WoS) : Alkmeonid family, Philidae family, Populist party
Sparta: Agiads and Europontids
Boeotian league: The parties' name were based on the cities that were part of the league such as Thebai, Plataea, Orchomenos, etc.
Over the Alps perhaps!

    Agreed! The new Greek party names are so unimaginative.

    There are also numerous ruling parties that USED to have a dynasty name that no longer do. And ones that never did that clearly should.

    Yeah, I'd be on board with bringing back the old political party names.

    If you guys want I could make a mod bringing the old names back, along with some new ones for the new political parties. Just throw in your party name ideas for each faction in here (maximum of 8 political parties for each faction).

    Currently working on a whole lot more, stay tuned.

    Hi lads.

    We had a discussion around this with the design team, it turned out that there won't be a chance to implement changes to the party names at this stage, unfortuinately.
    Cheers,

    Ha! also covered by DeI, with realistic names for every single faction/culture.

    It would be sweet. The old political parties in WoS campaign pack were (*means playable party):

    Athenai:
    - Alkmaionid Family*
    - Aristocratic Party
    - Philaidae Family
    - Populist Party

    Sparta:
    - Agiads*
    - Euryponids

    Boeotian League:
    - Orchomenos
    - Thebai*
    - Plataea
    - Thespiae

    Korinthos:
    - Autocratic Party
    - Conservative Party*
    - Populist Party
    - Tyrannic Party

    As for the new ones I can propose:

    Athenai:

    We can add such parties as The Boule, Oligarchic Party, Other Nobles etc.

    Sparta:

    Harder one. We might add "parties" based on five villages, that Sparta consisted of such as Amyklae, Pitana, Limnae, Mesoa and Cynosura. Still, we would miss one here. There is also a possibility to add parties based on Spartan political structures like Gerusia, Ephors etc.

    Boeotian League:

    This is easy one. The missing four can represent the remaining members of the Boeotian League: Scolus, Erythrae, Scaphae, Hysiae, Tanagra, Thisbe, Eutresis, Haliartus, Lebadea, Coronea, Acraephnium, Copia, and Chaeronea. My picks would be: Coronea, Chaeronea, Haliartus and Tanagra.

    Korinthos:

    Both Democratic Party and Oligarchic Party were mentioned in historical works. I think we can also add Aristocratic Party.

    Ha! also covered by DeI, with realistic names for every single faction/culture.

    What are the parties for WoS factions in DeI?

    Hi lads.

    We had a discussion around this with the design team, it turned out that there won't be a chance to implement changes to the party names at this stage, unfortuinately.

    Something you guys will consider for later, though? I don't think people expect even 90% of what is mentioned to make it into this patch cycle before the beta goes live. Most of us are hoping that things will get tweaked in future patches.

    Right now, the team working on Rome 2 is probably the favorite team of most Total War fans (excepting the hardcore WH fanbois). You guys are like Obi-Wan to Leia.

    Certainly, we'll try to improve party names flavour should future updates take place.

    I totally agree, it sorta sucks you out of the emersion. That's why I modded a Pack file to change political party names. I'll post it on the Workshop if anyone's interested. Also, if anyone here has any specific requests, make them known now.

    I've renamed Massillia, Bosporan Kingdom, and Syracuse. Let me know if you want any other political party changes.
