I ask you all to approach this from a logical perspective, with the following 'past predicts the future' arguments.
1. The game was intended to be a representation of the factions with 8th Edition Army Books.
2. The map was SHRUNK catastrophically from Vortex, to Mortal Empires.
3. Content with lore, art, and MODELS GW STILL SELLS will be the source of priority given the above.
Just keep those thoughts in the back of your mind as you review the following maps.
First, the current (as of this next DLC) Vortex.
Note the island chains along the Western edge of the Map. Note the complete continents of Lustria and Southlands. Note the Elven Outposts for our HE addicted brothers.
Now compare, to ME.
WHOA WHOA WHOA. We lost, the entire West Coast. Half of Lustria. Half of the Southlands. Islands for the Elven Outposts!
I'm not going to count the settlements lost, but that is IMMEDIETLY a meaningful lost of land mass just going from Vortex, to ME.
Lets begin our review with the following further assumptions.
1. Warriors of Chaos, and the land mass to support them, should be in the game.
2. The Game will center on the Dark Lands, Mountains of Mourn, and the area's immediately North, South, and to the WEST.
3. The factions will be Kislev, Dogs of War, Ogres, Chaos Dwarves, and Daemons of Chaos.
Lets look at the most obviously inclusion of additional land mass. The Chaos Wastes.
Look at all those settlements up there. Look at all those Fortresses. Not only that, but look at this.
Those fortresses and regions? A FRACTION OF THE CHAOS WASTES. That is a meaningfully large land mass, that is absolutely missing from the game, and WILL come in Game 3.
Lets look at the Mountains of Mourn.
You see Flayed Rock? Thats the current Eshin start! Look at all that land, look at all those regions. Look at ALL that area to the North. Heck, look at how large the Haunted Forest is! Can you say 'WE Start for Game 3'? Can you say 'Beastmen Start for Game 3?'
Fascinating stuff, and that is ignoring the West of this map which is of course, the Chaos Dwarves of the Dark Lands, and multiple other factions.
The Western portion of the Dark Lands? Well thats on the Orc and Dwarven Maps.
Orcs more closely resembles the region we have right now.
We already are missing many of these factions on the map. There are countless settlements that SHOULD ALREADY EXIST but because the map is shrunk, we dont have them!
Imagine if Wood Elves, fought Beastmen, fought Forest Goblins in multiple theatres around the world?!?
Speaking of Wood Elves for a moment, imagine if we actually got the real Wood Elf Map?!
Imagine that. A real, full implementation of the Map. We already have it in the mini Campaign!
Speaking of, we already mentioned the last land of the Western Coast and Lustria/Southlands.
High Elf fans, I know your out there, looking for your lost Outposts.
4 Elf Settlements, LOST, because the map was shrunk.
Dwarven friends, do you know we are missing TWO settlements to the North, with Western settlements to come?
Thats 3 potential Start Positions, currently unused and wasted, in unique locations!
For completeness, look at what we SHOULD have, for the New World.
And that is to say nothing about the Southlands, the fact Araby was cut, and the potential for a Nagash theme.
So you know what I want?
I want a full and proper implementation of all these regions.
Give us the proper New World. (Lost in translation to ME)
Give us the Chaos Wastes. (Warriors of Chaos, Daemons for Game 3)
Give us the Northern Steppes. (Norsca, and Hobgoblins)
Give us the Dark Lands. (Practically EVERYONE)
Give us the Mountains of Mourn (Dwarf, Orc, Ogres)
Give us the Eastern portion of the Southlands (TK, Nagash, VC)
Give us the Elven Outposts and Islands back (HE/DE Starts)
Give us the Full Athel Loren!
You honestly want to tell me thats not enough Map updates to warrant Game 3? Honestly?
That will be your Game 3. Right there.
Thanks for reading.
