(Obviously FLC is a good way to bypass this issue but that's not what we're discussing here)
Many people are averse to the idea of DLC for DLC and I totally understand why; barring content behind two pay walls would be a horrible business practice and might even be a dark rabbit hole we don't want to encourage companies to go down. However. This is not what DLC for DLC would look like:
In Warhammer, we currently have 2 DLC types:
Race packs (tomb kings, vampire coast, Wood Elves, Beastmen, Norsca and chaos). These packs centre around bringing a whole new race to the game, with 2-4 lords and 20 or so new units. These packs cost around £14
Lord packs (Prophet and the warlock, Grim and the Grave, King and the Warlord, Queen and the Crone) these packs focus on bringing 2 new lords and 3 new units (on average) for already existing factions. with the most recent Lord Pack bringing more content than those prior and setting the standard higher: these DLC packs usually cost about half that of a Race pack: around £7
Unless we see a change to the current formula: "DLC for DLC" is only going to come in the form of a Lord pack at £7. ergo: there is no reason to restrict it behind 2 pay walls because we will be paying for new lords and new units as per usual.
(Remember, all new content that comes with every DLC is added to your game regardless. what you pay for is the ability to control the specific lords and units in that DLC)
Under the current system: 2 lords = £7 and 4 lords = £14 (the exception is the Beastmen and Wood Elves, but they also come with their own stand alone campaigns and were poorly priced form the start).
so, as an example: A lord Pack for the Tomb Kings in Future shouldn't require the Tomb Kings DLC because this new lord pack will have different lords and new units (at £7). The original "Rise of the Tomb Kings" DLC has 4 Lords...hence why it is £14. This new "DLC for DLC" lord pack would not unlock Settra, Khatep or any of them so why would you need to own "Rise of the Tomb Kings" to buy this new lord pack?
Some people might say that allowing people to Buy a Lord Pack for a DLC faction would Devalue the original Race Pack, but this isn't true at all, because Norsca and Chaos were £6 to begin with, and as I pointed out: something like the Tomb Kings has double the Lords of a £7 pack, which is why it costs double.
This is why "DLC for DLC is a non issue for me and yet I never hear people bring it up in conversation. What are your thoughts?
