What if next LP is Drycha vs Tettoeko?

_Mad_D0c__Mad_D0c_ Registered Users Posts: 1,539
I mean LM are the game 2 faction featured the the last time 3 LPs back and Drycha would be the character you could create easily a story where LM and WE get into a fight.

Yes its unlikely and not what I want but, we all could agree, HE are the unlikeliest choice of all, featured allready in the last LP and has the smallest rivalry chance with HE (even there are conflicts in the lore). While a lot of people dont want DE or skaven.

So...

Tettoeko the Astro mage vs Drycha the Briar maven
The former will bring the highly wanted troglodon the other most likely only beasts, sorites and walking wood, so all Elves would be flc.

What do you think? Worst case or even better than the standard predictions?

    Better than DE vs WE so not the worst case, but it'd be mega lame.

    They kinda hinted Drycha as the FLC lord. And tbh, Tetto'eko is better saved for WH3. Lizardmen have some presence in the east.

    Uff that would be terrible.

    As much as I like those two characters, Lizardmen and Wood Elves have no reason to be against one another and it'd be as forced as Skaven VS Dark Elves.

    Drycha despite having some really interesting mechanics and lore would still be good as an FLC like I think we'll see. Tetto'eko is more DLC worthy but Lizardmen need a good enemy. Even Beastmen would be good for them because at least that's a Chaotic Faction.

    Yeah LM vs BM would be a good rivalry.
    Like I said tettoeko vs drycha is not what I want but beside all the moulder or DE vs WE discussion its strange we never thought about this.

    Moonclaw vs Tettoeko
    Moon son vs moon destroyer woukd be very fitting

    And oxyotl vs DoC would ve a classic rivalry, so oxyotl will be a game 3 safe bet.

    Tettoeko is a good candidate for game 3 with a starting position somewhere on the dragon islands or near kuresh/Ind if we will get this regions. would rather see Oxyotl vs Chaos tho. That said i think LM have 0 chance to get a LP in game 2 .

    its most likely skaven (moulder) which is a no brainer OR (with a small chance) DE. and i actually would prefer Tullaris on Ulthuan over Moulder
    My ancestors are smiling at me, Imperial, can you say the same?

    It is interesting considering Lizardmen are a possible canidate. I think the real problem is the fact that Lizardmen and Wood Elves are two of the least likely to ever have a problem with the other. I do think it'd be incredibly hilarious if it were Lizardmen though as all of us debating Moulder or Druchii would be blow away. Lizardmen need some mechanical reworks as their the most lacking in game II, but I'm presuming that'll be saved for game III.

    I would absolutely LOVE Moonclaw VS Tetto'eko though. I think Taurox is the one everyone wants so he'd be the DLC lord but if Beastmen were to get a second LP I could easily see Moonclaw leading it. Jabberslythes would be incredibly fitting too considering Moonclaw is literally insane and Jabber's drive men insane. I like your idea here.

    Oxyotl Vs A Daemon LL is a no brainer, fully expect it in game III as maybe the last DLC Lizardmen see. I as a fan of more content wouldn't cry about seeing 2 Lizard DLCs though.

    Would skip it

    She had fought beside Aenarion in the days of her youth, killing daemons, slaughtering the enemies of her people with wild abandon. She had cast spells and brewed poisons and worked out battle strategies for his armies. She had used her gift of visions to grant the elves victories innumerable.

    The so-called high elves had forgotten that now, preferring to cast her as the villain in the simple-minded morality plays they so enjoyed since her son had sundered the realm. They had no idea what it had cost to win those battles back when all thought the world was ending, or the price she had paid for victory.

    I would genuinely feel like CA was pandering specifically to me despite what the business sense of it might be.


    It seems like an impossible long-shot if you ask me.
    There's no major WE vs Lizardman beef to exploit.
    Lizzies also currently are tied for most lords.

    As much as I like Tetto'Ekko, he can wait for Game 3 and hang out in the Dragon Isles or whatnot

    Exactly, It just seems like a long-shot for now.
  • Lord_DistamorfinLord_Distamorfin Registered Users Posts: 1,333
    Disappointing on two fronts.
    1. Drycha would be in the lord pack to the exclusion of either the Sisters of Twilight or Ariel.
    2. A Lizardmen lord pack now pretty much denies them the possibility of ever getting a rework in game 3.

    For the love of god, no.
  • TimpeyoTimpeyo Registered Users Posts: 2,052
    Interesting, idea. I'm quite looking forward to playing Drycha, I know there's alot off ppl hating the idea but I think she could be alot off fun.

    Bringing the darker malevolent spirits of the forest too life and perhaps Coeddil in some way showing the real threats deep in the forest.

    I'm really intrigued what these unique units will be like along side her if she's the flc and what mechanic she will have. Nice idea tho




  • sirItansirItan Registered Users Posts: 392
    Honestly would rather have DE as the second race, but i am at the point when anything but skaven would be fine by me.
  • MrDragonMrDragon Registered Users Posts: 3,537
    What I personally want:
    Lizardmen because they deserve a proper campaign mechanic and I like Oxy and Tetto.

    What I feel is more fair:
    A Skaven or Dark Elf lord.

    What I feel is most likely:
    Throt and Clan Moulder.

    Naestra and Arahan for DLC and Ariel for FLC are the only acceptable option.

    YES YES THAT GOOD !
  • HeresyHoundHeresyHound Registered Users Posts: 8,285

    Naestra and Arahan for DLC and Ariel for FLC are the only acceptable option.

    And then Drycha in game 3 !

    Yes!

    Ideally Drycha + Araloth. This way the WE would end up with 2x gods 2x trees and 2x elves

    Not getting into WoC or Norsca but how I would personally like Wood Elves, Beastmen, and Bretonnia to be at the end of game 3 is:

    WE: Orion, Durthu, Sisters, Ariel, Drycha, Araloth

    Beastmen: Khazrak, Malagor, Morghur, Taurox, Moonclaw, Ghorros

    Bretonnia: Louen, Fork-Master, Enchantress, Repanse, Bohemond, Mallobaude

    Ya know, I do not now or ever buy a lord pack for its rivalry or theme. It's pretty much the most pointless thing with some notable exceptions. Race for 8peaks at least tried to make something of the rivalry but for many the attempt at it such as the first Empire Vs Vampire Counts issue was to make that rivarly they dug up a nobody then did nothing with it. I don't just dislike Ghorst because he is so unknown but he is one of the single most uninspiring lords in the game right now. I wish they would give his abilities a redo.

    I buy lord packs for the individual lords, units, faction mechanics, and starting positions. To which starting positions is now often the primary reason I play any lord. When it came down to Eltharion vs Imrik, I like Imrik more 100% solely more because of start position.

    That said, CA does the rivalries for advertisement. Specifically to the masses. Not as much us, many of us here are avid collectors that will hover it up just for completionists sake or because we're a fan of the individual race such as Wood Elf fans.

    Which is why I don't think it would be WE vs LM in that arrangement. I'm not feeling the advertisement campaign for it. Why they dragged Markus, a character in canon to be against far flung expeditions or making new enemies for the Empire going on a LM hunt. Cause a hunter guy going after lizards jives with people who know nothing about Warhammer, little, or just don't care about the lore that much.

    Actually yeah that does make sense. I am pretty sure trailer will start with bunch elves running away from a rats or a hydra.

    Welp with the choices we got this seems likely all though they could do a and pack.

    Which will have either lm or HE and WE working togather similar to how paris and hector kind of does in troy. Ideally it would have been brets and WE but CA confirmed it will not be brets.

    The lizardman are better off at game 3 map and are last in line atm with the HE

    It is going to be Skaven vs the WE, probably Elkhorn's of ages involved. and another WE FLC probably Drycha as they hinted.

    What is interesting is actually what comes after, u have DE, Dwarves, BM and Chaos as potential candidates.
  • CrossilCrossil Registered Users Posts: 14,927
    Anything except Skaven works for me. Salt over everything else.
    Furthermore, I consider that Daemon Prince must be removed.
