    Logic would say:

    Do not get your hopes up and you will not be disappointed. Assume its some RoRs and nothing more.
    If it is more, you're pleasantly surprised, if it isn't then you can be happy you didn't overhype yourself over nothing more than that. win-win

    There is a norwegian expression which translates to "do not take the grief in advance" and I think there is something to that too.

    To be fair I'd blame the streamers this time. The forum was pretty much settled on it being RoR - ad happy to hear it. It's just all these streamer comments which have thrown things into the air.

    @makar55 Its my working theory as well. Not originally mind you. I thought we were talking more RoR, but then I saw Legend’s video and his comments about it being “massive” etc. While I’m not sure I’d characterize the addition of a fleshed out Toddy with Ulrican units as “massive,” I do find it more compelling than just RoR. If they move Khazrak and then create some kind of mechanics between him and Toddy then all the better.

    So I’m hoping it’s Toddy with the full faction treatment - mechanics, units etc., but I’m expecting it to be RoR (and if it is, hopefully they’ll add a couple of Dwarf RoR).

    Ok for those interested, Legend clarified his statements in his yesterday stream:
    I don't know how to make short videos of youtube clips but it's at the 11:54 in the video:


    Some extracts:
    "I had time to evaluate my reaction and I feel like I'm in the ok to let you know not what it is but that I was not trolling"

    "I was not giving any cryptic message and I was not trying to mislead you at all"

    "I personnaly think, without giving any hints to what it it because you'll find out soon, that you SHOULD be excited for it, and that it is going to be GOOD." (the emphasis are his, see in the video)

    "I'm not going to use words like massive or big and people are going to try to read into that"

    "It is good and you should be excited for it because it is good"

    So not trolling and doubling down on the fact that we should get excited. Still hyped

    I don't understand any of this... none of this makes any sense...

    If CA has a new race to show - why not say FLC race? They would know how exciting that would be.

    If CA had a new Legendary Lord or Unit then they would say new legendary lord or unit - like they did in the reveal.

    It can't be core gameplay mechanics because it's bound to an FLC (an access one at that)...

    So I just don't get how it can be anything other then RoR (or something similar) - in which case why is everyone so excitied?

    Honestly Legendary heroes or perhaps a Toddy upgrade seem likely now... as I just don't get it.

    This is possibly the single most unknown speculative FLC/DLC item we have ever had... I just can't offer any real suggestions...

    Something exciting and possibly RoR related is the best idea I can offer - so this doesn't seem impossible...

    Crazy times on the forum... Warhammer Total War has certainly been a journey - as much as I love the game I think i've got much more entertainment out of talking and speculating about it :D

    Toddy do fit the bill. CA couldn't announce it as a "new LL" since he's technically already there !

    When I think of “massive”, I automatically think that it’s a new race.

    Some RoR’s doesn’t generally qualify as a massive update in my book. Sure, they would be nice to have but Legend’s words would kinda seem like overkill at that point.

    I don’t think he’s one to generally overhype people so this looks very promising.

    None of that make sense to me. First, Boris makes as much sense in game 3 as in game 2, not much in the main campaigns and enough in the big campaing maps (Mortal Empires or Inmortal Empires). Second, what would be the point of spliting both contents when can work without the other?. Third, why release Boris with few cheap reskins when they can release him alongside a proper Ulric DLC with proper iconic Urilc units? And last, why content creator would call a bunch of Ulric "RORs" a worth surprise?

    I mean, not saying that Boris is not coming with the new content, but no chance Ulric RORs are the reinforcements.

    Ok to all who think it is a free race I have one question:

    Why should CA give us a free race the same day/time they want us to sell a DLC? There would be a risk in loosing potential customers.

    The more I think of it, the more Toddy and maybe the Red Duke too seem possible.

    Like, CA couldn't say "new LLs" since they already exist. But making them playable would reinforce their races.

    It's certainly in the realm of credible !

    You know, I always thought releasing a Dwarf and a VC LL as the final FLC, similar to how we got all those RoR FLCs at the end of game 1 life-cycle as a way to "complete" a content aspect of the game (in game 1 it was RoRs for all races, in game 2 is having all game 1 base races in the Vortex) was a fairly reasonable, and amazing, way to cap off game 2's lifecycle. And It even worked geographically too. Thorek is from Karak Azul, so a campaign centered around him going to Karak Zorn/other New World lost holds in search of ancient runic knowledge seems flavorful; similar, adding Vorag or Ushoran (the bloodline with the least DLC potential) rebuilding the Strigoi Empire in the Badlands as they get revived would be really thematic as well.

    But I gotta agree. Todbringer and Red Duke would be a lot cheaper to make overall. Their models are already in the game and they could easily be ME-only. It definitely makes a lot more sense than the FLC Lord being Toddy and the reinforcements being half a dozen reskin units, specially with all the content creators reactions so far.

    The one downside though is that the Dwarfs will, once again, get the short end of the stick. No full rework, no cross-game LP and now not even a LL freebie.

    Leaning towards it being either Dogs of War regiments w/ unique lord and units added via some method perhaps for a limited time period.

    Unique Legendary Heroes or Lord options without new factions added for all the in game factions.

    Or something related to Nagash

    Anything less than that I can't see as all that hype
  • ladymissfit#8688ladymissfit#8688 Senior Member Registered Users Posts: 3,480
    it's probably not much more than some RoR's but, and I've said this before, if i would call Dog's of war anything it's "reinforces"
    Chaos lords should be women
