What feature are you most excited to learn about?

Could be a feature they have already showcased and you want to know more about or something that is so far undisclosed (I know plenty of people are hungry for multiplayer information.)

For me : I can't wait to find out more about traits and clan/family dynamics. I am more an RPG person than strategy games, though Total War is my favorite series, so these RPG elements that add a touch of character to you ruler and generals and the story that unfolds organically around a playthrough are wonderful parts to the game.

I am actually excited about one turn per year because in Shogun 2 I tended to get too attached to certain characters and would rarely not reload the game if one died, but since this game covers a more expansive time period it will be more about the family and their dynasty than individuals, so I won't mind as much if disasters happen, which in turn will make for a more interesting "story."
I'm always this grumpy, so it is nothing personal.

    I'm more interested in the factions and the setting than any specific new features, but I've been nothing but impressed with the features that we've seen so far.
    "Raise them, Necromancer. Set brother against brother. Let's give our hosts something worthy of recording in their pathetic book of complaints, shall we?"
    The Queen of Mysteries, on the Book of Grudges.

    Her voice was as rustling silk. "In the darkness I dreamt of you, cousin."
    "Hawk no longer. My wings are dust and bone. I crawl through time now, like an asp."
    "You took my wings, Neferata. You made me crawl. Now I return the favour. Crawl, cousin. Crawl."

    Political relations, trade economy, and faction rosters/availability. I really want more unique AOR units than CA seems to be doing as I want to use auxillaries and local units in my armies with more personality than the mercenaries shown so far. Political relations between allies, clients, and trading partners sounds to be more interesting than any TW so far if still less than what I'd like to see. Trade seems to be an afterthought but still if finally doing away with trade nodes something too look forward to.

    Naval battles. Really hoping the AI can handle them somewhat well and I can get some twenty on twenty engagements. Honestly I've done the armies over and over again, and I rarely zoom in to my units. So a lot of the eye candy CA is adding is sort of wasted on me. Naval battles are still sort of new for me, only being in since Empire, and I'm looking forward to slicing some enemies in two.

    Learn all units and known what strong/weak of all 12 major and rest of minor factions, is key to victory over them!

    Like to hire CHEAPER of mercenaries to Carthage, 40 % and can more 10 % of buildings...until 50 % + general bonus? Wait and see :)
    Carthage > Burn Rome :p
    Macedon > Burn Rome :D

    This is hard for me as the greatness of Total War comes from all it's systems working together to create something unique and great. I've said it before, but if Total War was only the RTS battles or just a turn based game, it wouldn't even be as half as good as it is currently.

    That said, I think the feature I'm most looking forward to is...the setting! I loved Rome 1 for many reasons (I find the Roman era the most interesting of all the time periods TW has covered thus far with Empire being a close second) but what Rome has as a setting over any other is the AMAZING variety. It feels like playing a completely different game as each faction, and when you're a central faction like Rome, it's awesome having to adapt your tactics against all the different enemies.

    So yea the setting and all the variety it entails is probably my most anticipated feature.

    It is three thing we must learn of the game:

    MILITARY, ECONOMIC and POLITICAL. If you can't play with three cases, then you are WRONG to buy the game!

    I am curious how to do with The Senate (Carthage+Rome) and all 10 major factions with missions.... plus conspiracies, politics, intrigue, revolts, loyalty, honour, ambition, betrayal. Your desisons will write your own story!
    Carthage > Burn Rome :p
    Macedon > Burn Rome :D
