    Well hype for game 3 is now dead. Only badguy factions lol or Empire and its hideous politics rework eugh. Well it was a good run guys but had to crash and mess up at some point.

    "Game 3 is dead" is quite a statement considering we don't even know what's coming for Game 3 yet.
    Hype for. Game 3 will be a huge success, but if is a Chaos Bugaloo, won't certainly pick my interest. My opinion, ofc.
    That is a reasonable and sensible response to the whole thing.

    Told ya it's a distinct possibility that Araby(any maybe even DoW) won't be made.

    They did say they don't know what game 3 pre-order will be but I'm not sure if with all these crossover LPs being planned that it will even be a race

    Pretty bad news. At least we can finally stop speculating now, though I wish they had told us earlier.
  • GingerRoeBroGingerRoeBro Senior Member Registered Users Posts: 3,041
    Yep monos instead of mishmash is the best outcome and only logical one and CA know it too, so that is why it's happening :)

    Even if its one race at a time monos will come :)

    Been right on that araby and dogs of war for years
    Bigger Budget for game 3?

    They're gonna need it for all of the monogod glory.
    Which will be the "4 distinct gods representing the different aspects of Chaos such as Khorne, Slaanesh, Tzeentch, and Nurgle." :blush: ^CA quote

    Thank you CA for seeing them as what they truly are.

    I could have made an Araby army that would have been a salivating prospect given enough artistic freedom and source material to sift through.

    The issue was characters, I think there were enough units frankly.
    Give them the Norsca treatment. Two characters. That would hardly have been what toppled the cow. Anyways, doesn't matter now. Araby is dead. Long live whatever else takes it's place (assuming something actually does)!
    Long live a lord pack then
    It needs to be pointed out that what people call "cheese" is just playing the game the way it actually exists not in some fictional way they think it is supposed to work.

    Everyone should reasonably know that virtually anything is a distinct possibility. To ignore this in favour of some wishful deterministic prediction is to invite insanity freely and willingly to reside within the dark recesses of one's dimly lit skull. Araby could still be on the cards somewhere down the line. But it does seem reasonably dead now.

    Well they said they don't know what will be game 3 pre-order. But I have high doubts they aren't aware of the one race that still missing on the actual game 2 map. If they can't connect the two naturally then there's probably something else holding back Araby. And there's a high chance Loremaster of Sotek is right and it's something I agree with him on. GW is probably the one behind this, not CA, so it's not up to them.

    Who knows friend? Doesn't matter. We move on. At least we have a sweet Lord Pack to chew on and more goodies to come. We shed a tear, wipe it and brave the breach once more. Onwards, to glory!

    Dude, Nagash faction is all but confirmed in my books. No way in hell they don't implement him if they are going down the more recognizable aspects of Warhammer.

    Undead Legions commeth. Dominion of living is forfeit.

    Savage Orcs (appear as separate diplomatic option)
    Chaos Wastes (norscans are placeholders)
    Undead Legions (the other 2 races were undead)

    For WH3 I can see Chaos vs Men, 2 factions each (DoC & Champions of Chaos vs Kislev/SR & Imperial Gods) and CD and OK as DLC

    Pre-order faction would probably be Clan Moulder then. They had a White Dwarf army list, there are missing units from the Skaven list from their clan, and CA know that there are many skaven fans out there who will pre-order just to get more Skaven.

    He would be the natural shoe in. Implementing him would certainly mean grabbing a lot of us by the moneymaker.

    My bet is Kislev for the preorder. I think it makes the most sense.

    You know, I think game 3 might just go more the unification route if stuff like Savage Orcs, Clan Moulder and Nagash(and of course Monos) arrive. So you have different orc factions so it would be natural that LLs from Savage Orcs can join main Greenskin faction. Clan Moulder the same with other Skaven. Norsca's Wulfric and Throgg able to join WoC. DoC and WoC able to acquire Monos daemon and human LLs, respectively. And Nagash able to confed/subjugate his Mortarchs.

    New options come to mind quickly for game 3.

    If CA will make Monogods, but not suicide with four chaos core races.
    Slaanesh can be preoder bonus. Khorne can be core race with three others races(Chaos Dwarfs, Kislev, Dogs of War or Ogre Kingdoms).

    We will still have Tzeentch, Nurgle and another race for campaign packs.

    Dogs of War is my second choice but we need more good guys in game 3.

    Undead Legions have only one unique unit, no thanks.
    If Savage Orcs will become own race. They are better for FLC with Greenskins rework.
    Dwarfs need Slayer Lord pack: https://imgur.com/x74HxxU
    Liu Chong and He Yi should be playable in 194.

    I doubt they will even be included in WH3
  • ShaddShadd Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 455
    Yep, looks like Monogods it is for WH3. Which makes sense, CA likes to stick to a unifying thematic theme and the Great Game as the centerpiece makes even more sense to drive the main campaign then the fight over the Vortex was.

    Chaos Dwarfs and Ogres will be DLC.

    Maybe Kislev for preorder, but I'll probably hold off on that until WH3 introduces a proper Chaos Invasion instead of the current sloppy implementation, don't want to burn out too quickly on likely the only minor underdog faction to get implemented until the polished challenge is available.
  • Stryke1983Stryke1983 Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 25
    Good. There are still a bunch of other factions that should be a higher priority. If Araby/Cathay/Nippon were to happen at all then I'd rather they come after all other factions are released in full.

  • TheChocolateJesusTheChocolateJesus Senior Member Registered Users Posts: 1,428
    So with Araby out of the question I seriously hope it's not going to be freaking DoW. My hopes are now on Kislev.
    It's gotta be a Chocolate Jesus to keep me satisfied.

    Appreciate the transparency. They even outright confirmed Nanman are being added in the future for 3K. WH side should get the same confirmations as well.

    I'd like to know who these other factions are. Ogre Kingdoms, Daemons of Chaos and Chaos Dwarfs will be 3/4 starting factions for TWW3. So exactly what other factions are more of a priority?

    One does not affect the other. Unlike Araby, DoW have a full fledged army book with an abundance of units and rules. I find their inclusion not only likely, but practically guaranteed.

    Whether that's in Game 2 or Game 3 is still up for debate. Nor do I know if they get implemented as a Southern Realms race or integrate DoW as a special type of mechanic for all races. Either way, I think DoW will be on our computer screens at some point.
