Whoo, second thread of the day, I'm on a roll! I mentioned this on another thread but I have wanted to do one on this anyway, so here I go!
With the increasing quality of LLs, with LP LLs getting special mechanics for the campaign I, as the title indicates, wonder whether once the game 1 faction reworks are done we will see CA's updating shift from factions to LL. I mean even the core LLs of game 2 seem to pale in comparison to the ones being added now in terms of campaign flavour.
We also have no idea what the cores of game 3 will be like, especially with the increased development time, they may each have unique mechanics just like current LLs. Tbh, the quality of faction implemenation has been great - especially with factions like TKs - I wonder how CA would go the extra mile on that to step up game 3, so perhaps they will be endeavoring to make the LLs more unique from one another to do that, which would especially make sense for Daemons.
If game 3's LLs are more unique (in terms of campaign mechanics) from the start, or even the same, as the LLs we are getting from LPs I see the call to update old LLs to be the successor to the call to update old races.
