Now we CA have shown us the list of characters and lords getting unique models based on posters with more coming, what other lords and characters would you like to see

so CA can see this and hopefully implement some of them if not in DLCs in the future

    Yeah, I was thinking about this as well. I hope that CA will continue adding more custom characters through DLCs and FLCs after launch. And that they will be easy to mod in.

    Some like Zhang Liao, Sun Ce, Lu Bu etc are almost certainly in the game despite no posters released yet.

    The ones I look forward to very much -

    Zhang He
    Ling Tong
    Diao Chan
    Lu Su
    Lu Xun
    Lu Meng
    Ma LIang
    Xun Yu
    Guo Jia
    Lady Zhen
    Huang Gai
    Cao Pi
    Two Qiaos

    _______

    Will be good to have these as well -

    Pan Zhang
    Cao Cao's other sons
    Sima children
    Ma Yunlu, Lu Lingqi
    (although they are not historical)
    Ma Dai
    Pang De
    Lady Bian
    Xu Shu
    Gao Shun
    Yue Jin
    Jia Xu
    Zhang Chunhua
    Zhou Tai
    Wang Yuanji

    Sun Ce got a poster alredy. And we sae Zhang Liao in that ambush battle, so i am sure he is going to be unique character. They will show his poster in the next few days.

    Wow, I looked in the master list just now, and saw Sun Ce. I somehow missed the announcement. He looks badass. Thanks for pointing it out.

    There has to be a threshold where the total war game play can't support too many stacks. I wonder what that number is.

    Would 21 characters on a side allow 7 full stacks and 21 individual stacks (1 character with six units). Can an individual character be parked on a town to support the town garrison? Can characters be saved in an inactive pool?

  • mitthrawnuruodomitthrawnuruodo Junior Member Posts: 1,022Registered Users
    Hmm going through the lists, it is worth noting that all the characters in the posters thus far were military leaders of some sort.

    Non-military characters like Xun Yu, Guo Jia etc are probably going to be treated in a different way, and may not even have physical models. My curiosity is piqued.

    Sun Jian needs

    Cheng Pu
    Zhou Tai

    There seems to be a shortage of statigists as well, Cao Cao had like 4 or 5 good ones, Chen Gong (with Lu Bu earlier), Xun Yu, Xun You, Guo jia

    Was wandering the same. Seems though that you can also recruit captains.

    Yue Jin already has a poster https://forums.totalwar.com/discussion/234442/meet-yue-jin, as does Sima Yi. It seems that more are coming.

    Hopefully characters would at least be able be kept in inactive pool and would not totally disappear if a player reached a characters cap, 'arbitrary headcount limit' is a common trope in video games.

    Maybe each warlord would have his own adviser in this game, and advisers was a thing in Total War.

    I would like to see Yan Liang & Wen Chou with unique figure.
  • AoishiroAoishiro Posts: 49Registered Users
    Right now, I hope Shu get Fa Zheng, Pang Tong and Wei Yan.
    Wu get Huang Gai, Lu Su and Lu Meng.
    Wei get Guo Jia, Jia Xu and Pang De.

    And I hope we don't get all the fictional nonsense from DW. Guan Suo and his harem (through Hua Man could be cool), Zhou Cang, Guan Yinping, soon to be Ma Yunlu. Filling a faction with characters who did nothing historical or in the novel is one of the reasons Shu became so uninteresting.

    Lu Meng, forgot about him, such a cool name.

    Im always looking from a balance point of view.

    As long as important characters, in a balanced way, gets added....i'm happy :)

    I am surprised that I am the only one asking for Zhange He. I suspect it has something to with his effeminate portrayal in Dynasty Warriors. Historically, he was a badass. He was considered one of the five elite generals of Cao Wei.

    Sounds a bit limited and gamey to me. Ideally each faction should have an administrative hierarchy based on its size. You should be able to place civilian characters in different positions in this hierarchy for faction-wide benefits, and / or attach them to armies and cities (but they wont show up in battles), much like agents, for specific bonuses.
