    Any chance of seeing Warlord Legend's blogs for the Yellow Turban DLC characters?

    Having no Dong Zhuo is a bad joke.

    zheng jiang is not made up she did exist she is just extremely extremely minor and was not important due to being swiftly dealt with before she could become a threat

    Under Liu Biao's bio, Yuan Shao has a new, older look. Do the portraits age or is that his new look, I like it
  • mitthrawnuruodomitthrawnuruodo Junior Member Posts: 795Registered Users
    Nice! How about another thread combining the other characters' posters?

    I prefer new info rather than compilation of what they already announced.

    This is for indexing. It is a common practice in forums. It is not really choice between new and old content lol.

    Dong Zhuo would be in the game, because he was shown, but he might not be playable at launch.
    4 Fully Independent Monogods Armies would be great for a Storyline about the Great Game in Total War: Warhammer 3.

    Really nice.. i‘m happy about the „other“ warlords than the 3 dynasty Warriors‘ Liu Bei, Cao Cao and Sun Jian

    The only thing I just can‘t understand is the 2 Thief type ones... they are on one spot like they are even Bordering against each other... just to have a Woman as Warlord ??

    Why not cut the Male one for god‘s sake and take some Warlord from the south, which is empty. Still not veeeerrryy happy but it would be okay

    Other then that really interesting. Just hope that the Units and the Faction offer enough differences between each other.. Shogun 2 got boring too fast.

    Honestly that's pretty inexcusable, I am still excited to play the game but not having him playable at launch is ridiculous.

    I don't think they directly border each other but they do seem to start reasonably close together, so they might end up fighting each other fairly early depending on which direction they tried to expand in.

    While the South was always less densely populated than the north of China which is why there seems to be less factions there and I actually expect it to have a slightly smaller number of cities spread out over a wider area compared to the north. But I do believe that at least one of the pre-order yellow turbans will also start in the south though.

    But it does make me wonder just how the end game will generally shape out most of the time, since I would think that since the northern area as more factions there would be more variability over which of them will blob out enough to reach Emperor rank, with most of the others taken out by that point. While Sun Jian will pretty much get the south to himself or perhaps Liu Biao might defeat him and expand in to that area. And the western area that became Shu might just end up with a Liu Zhang (currently non playable) becoming the 3rd most time unless Ma Tang might push out southwards, since without a high level of scripting I'm not sure if AI Liu Bei would be end up there.
