    Pretty sure an Araby Race pack would sell like hot cakes despite the few vocal content-deniers with their strange hatreds. Even if they upped the price a few bucks to cover it, I'm sure it'd still sell.

    Nah... this reeks of Games Workshop. They have a history of making terrible decisions. They are also COMPLETELY psychotic about branding. I'm sure they won't allow CA to do anything they can't swoop up for use in AoS at some point. So Araby, Cathay, Ind - all paper thin veils of historical places - aren't brandable. Hobgoblin is a generic term like orc, so they might be able to get away with that one - but to them it's probably not worth the effort because they don't have room for them in AoS. Same for Araby/Cathay, too. The three are strictly WHFB stuff with no inertia for them beyond it. So... they tell CA no.

    Ofc it would sell well but cost to profit lord packs is probably much better than any race.

    Anyway the proof is in the pudding. Companies do what they profit most from.
    Some times ago CA said bigger DLC sell better. Then they stopped doing bigger DLC. So it's not like any of this makes sense.

    Man no Araby sucks... they would really enliven that portion of the map! And they had an army with its own look in Warmaster! What a shame.

    You'd think they'd pursue all profits then, not just the best ones.

    A great profit + a good profit > a great profit alone.

    Very, very disappointed by the lack of Araby.

    But thank you CA for being straight up with us.

    Actions speak much louder than words.
    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.

    Yeah but 2 great (2 lord packs) is better than one good and one great.

    I really want race packs

    Imo the reason the lord packs sell is because of the previous race packs. But CA may not get that/see it like that.

    Imo to mske a businiess good you need both to strengthen your brand AND sell well. If you sell well at the cost of your brsnd (inferior products at great profit) you are hurting future sales. Unfortunately alot of companies get management that pump up profits in the short term and then let next management deal with the fallout.

    Ive seen many companies do this. EA, Bioware, Bethesda, Disney to name a few.

    The way CA has treated their brand is top notch. In a different league than the above which is why 3k sold so well etc but one day that may all come crashing down in an orgy of greed and folly like others have done.

    Thank you for that transparency CA. It's a lot better than before !

    The futur looks brilliant for Warhammer and i can't wait to see what is comming !

    A bit sad for Araby but atleast it's not out of question. Cathay was just a dream anyway.
  • IokkoIokko Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 625
    Thanks for the Clear communication CA. loving the new approach, and it's great to have a general time frame for upcoming content.

    Obviously I'm disappointed about Araby but it's alright, and I'd much rather be told that there are no plans to introduce them than be left to speculate endlessly and be even more disappointed eventually.

    This way i can now get hyped about things that are actually coming! Gimme all those cross game lord packs ca!
    Stating opinions as if they're facts in your signature and adding "Change my mind" doesn't make them facts, change my mind.

    This, and nobody is taking into account that CA and GW are UK based companies. Without getting too much into politics (that has no place here), Araby could be a little lets put it mildly ''controversial''

    Very few companies can gain entering sore spots into politics. You run the risk of alienating part of your public, at the same time gaining nothing.

    Where do they say we won´t get monogods?

    If I had to guess the reason why we’re not getting Araby, or potentially any other minor race for that matter, it would be a financial reason. Plain and simple. The race packs cost a lot more money to make then a lord pack but ultimately made about the same amount of money as a lord pack. Hence the “only lord packs remaining” for WH2 statement. No way to know this for sure but that would be my guess.

    9 times out of 10 it always comes down to money.

    You know, I acually had the same thought. In my case, I buy every dlc but the premise is that they will keep delivering interesting and well made dlcs, and if they decide to only make lord packs I will just stop giving my money.

    I already regret buying the latest one as the more successful lord packs are the less likeely they are to make race packs. I hope they understand their fans won't be happy if they stop making race packs, but you never know with CA, they don' always make the best business decisions...

    Didn't they charge more for racepack?
    Yes but they are much, much more expensive to make.

    They don't explicitly say it, however they do say they are using the official sources to draw from. Monogods never (in WHFB, rather than AoS) had armybooks, so saying that game 3 will be anything other than the actual armybook races (+1) seems a little obtuse. That said I think they do have a chance as DLC races for game 3, as the vast majority of the stuff for them will already be in game, just not cores.

    This was a very good post. Looking forward to festag, and especially next year's Greenskins update.

    Its will be a lot better then Empire is. More you play, more and more you see its not as "big" as all said it is
    Why am I not surprised to read that from you. Unsatisfied for eternity poor you. The rework could use a small amount of tweaks but it's very solid one and like it or not it IS a big rework and it is the biggest rework yet.
    I dont talk about rework, but DLC. And whole, and I dont need to be. For me its worse dlc then P&W. Gs have chance to way better dlc and rework.
    Well then what the Empire got is very solid. Not as good as Ikit of course (though it's hard to do better than him) but it's still an excellent DLC for what the Empire got. Lizardman side is a bit disappointing again though it's better than Tehenhauin.
    2 reskinned units, and 3 again reskinned units, great Empire part of that dlc, PAID dlc.
    First off they're not reskins but remodel. Following that logic then any human would be a reskin which is dumb ? And what's wrong with remodel ? They should make completely new skeletons for archers ? Or they should make only units that requires unique skeletons, animations and so on ?

    If you can't keep your expectations realistic that's your problem not CA's.

    Oh and if I follow your logic, weren't the skaven units reskins except for the doomflayers ?

    And Markus also had some completely new mechanics, 4 heroes with many objectives for each one. Don't look only at the units to judge a Lord Pack, there are mechanics too and it's most likely the most expensive part to make.
    Archers and Huntmen are 2 same units, overhaul dlc got 4 units, doing same thing, reskin. War wagons, same thing. As for paid dlc use in game assets. Only outside "shell" aka textures ar new, nothing more.

    yes for paid dlc, they should USE new assets.

    Co you use Marcus heroes in custom game or new empire province units ? nope.

    This is the best news since Prophet and Warlock. Finally, there will be no more fanfiction in the forums. Transparency is what was needed for a long time and I look forward to what is to come.

    The core races are priority, and it seems CA agrees.

    Really applaud them for having a chinese section, with all the very negative portrayal of china in the real life political stage, its quite surprising to see a company like CA respecting other country and culture, huge judos right there. Of coz some might say its a commercial thing but thats not really true, many happily take their money and still try their best to make them looks bad

    I’m really heartened reading this, thanks CA. The content released lately has been excellent (although I have my reservations about Pirates, not bought them yet) but the paragraphs about being more transparent about upcoming content, scale and delays is the best thing I’ve heard you mention this year.

    Oh, and if an experience manager is reading this, please don’t add the awful Lion chariots when you get the HE next; you’re doing a great job in rectifying some of GW’s shortcomings... ;)

    If they add the White Lion chariot it should be an exclusive character mount option.

    "We do want everyone to bear in mind that there’s a lot of content out there that is unofficial and fan-created. We’re working with Games Workshop to realise as much of the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world as we can, but of course there are limits to what is possible given the amount of content that has been officially created"


    This does not explain Cylostra Direfin

    They explained why they made Cylostra already.

    I know they did neodeinos but making this distinction between offical and fan created content in the context of only being able to realise a certain amount of the world contradicts her creation. I'm saying it's flawed to say there is too much offical content to go near fan-content but then use resources to develop their own made up creations rather than draw from the backlog of official content

    The GW head honchos had better be massive fans of this game or I don't personally feel they're qualified for their roles. :p

    Hopefully the idea of playing as the hobgoblin hordes and assaulting the wall of Cathay will excite them so much that they'll give it the green light in the future. I'm not holding my breath, of course.
    Often bored, but never finished. Food, war, carousing, rabble-rousing... A gobbo's work is never done.
