I will preface this by saying that this only applies if game 2 "rules" apply and new races are not added to the story campaign. I have no way to know otherwise though so for now this is the assumption that can be made.
The premise to even get the Ogres involved in the god bear story is so flipping tenuous compared to all other races with such apparently low stakes. Just wanting to eat it, seriously that's it. That's lame, quite frankly. Not even wanting to fill the god bear with the spirit of the great maw or anything cool like that? Nothing.
Knowing that was all they had in mind for the Ogres means they would and should have just been the first race pack and not the pre order race.
They could have had cauldron mechanics ala Grom and had to go and reclaim their mountain halls from Skaven, Orcs and Dawi of both types. We could have also maybe just maybe had a final battle vs the very last of the Sky Titans or something epic of that nature and lets face it, the Mountains of Mourn could just as easily have place holder factions as the Darklands do and no one would have cared.
And whilst I am talking about Ogres, If the entire "Empire" part of the map is only their for Skragg to destroy and take over then please make sure he does so instead of sitting in his home province doing jack **** for 200 turns. Otherwise it's just a bunch of space we didn't need on the map that could have been used in a much better location *cough* Cathay *cough*. Even more so when Skragg could have been anywhere, including the place he should have started, The Great Maw.
So now we get on to Chorfs.
With the theme of the game being what it is, and these angry little beardy bois being worshipers of a minor chaos deity how is it not a no brainer from day 0 to make these guys part of the main story. I cannot even do the mental gymnastics required to make them NOT an essential starting race for this game. Whoever made this call, CA, GW, Jesus whomever it was it was a poor choice, period.
Compelling them to steal one gods power to infuse with their own and give him big boy status would have been an easy sell to them as a race and to us as players so this is already so much more synergistic with the rest of the races involved than Ogres are.
The Darklands could have even stayed completely occupied by Orcs but controlled by Grimgor and not a lesser faction, with just 2 Chorf strongholds for the LL's to live and expand from.
Honestly how this even happened this way round is astonishing and it's such a waste of potential for both races quite frankly and I am deeply disappointed by the decision that forced CA to do these races in the order that they have.
I hope very much that game 2 "rules" don't apply so that we can see a glorious Chorf campaign that ends in a major chaos god Hashut being born.
