The Full Rosters - Not today

JungleElfJungleElf Registered Users Posts: 4,906
Some managing of expectations: I doubt we'll see all units in the upcoming gameplay-footage. Whether some demanded units are in or not won't be clear until the full roster-reveal, which could be more than a week away.

Keep this in mind folks, so we won't have a repeat of yesterday's roster-discussions.

I'm sure we haven't seen everything these races have yet to offer us at launch.

    Why? Speculating is a fun. And sure not today, but maybe tomorrow.

    Oh I love speculation, don't get me wrong!

    Anyway: Fallen Gates in-engine trailer: 11th of may 2017, Lizardmen roster-reveal: 18th of may 2017.

    The hysteria of today made my day. A repeat would be brilliant.

    Regardless you're wrong. We're due for a full leak in 3 hours.
    Hyped for TWW3.

    CA! Cathay has the most potential of any race in TWW by far. More A+ material to design a race from than any other. You can make Cathay the best race in TWW history. I bolieve in you!

    The Skaven roster was revealed in a blog two days after the in-engine trailer, though.

    So this week could still be a possibility.

    No it's all coming today.I live in England and they let all the locals know this.

    Im not 100% sure we will get anything at all. Maybe yestyerdays leak made them move it a day forward? I agree that it most likely that we will get a gameplay trailer - but im not 100% sure of it.

    We have to know ASAP.

    Seeing the very same old-Undivided Chaos Lord from WoC leading Khorne armies, Warhounds and 4-5 types of Skullcrushers was. . . quite strange to say the least.

    • Are they placeholders?

    • Is that WoC Chaos Lord a LL?

    • Has that WoC Chaos Lord replaced the Khorne Lord?

    • How many other weapons variants of the same unit we are going to get?

    • How many re-added WoC units Khorne has?

    • How many new and exclusive units, lords and heroes Khorne has yet to reveal?

    Rosters for the roster god, units for the unit throne!

    I think we get it Friday.

    Latest next week.

    But I think go na be for kislev first.

    Going off of a lot of the topics seen yesterday I think a fair few people will have their expectations routinely not met right up to and even going beyond release.

    Kislev will be first and we might see it this week or next. Imagine Khorne will come after in a few more weeks.
    The wiki is not a grounds for arguing about lore - because ANYONE can edit it at any time.

    Don't worry, im a realist. Until i see the roster list itself i wont make silly judgements.

    I think we are going to get more news than that, khorne roster this week or next, then they are going to move on to new stuff. This is what I am basing it on. https://forums.totalwar.com/discussion/289424/we-might-get-more-news-sooner-than-you-think#latest

    I'm most interested in.

    A) Big bear elemental. Is it magic or a unit?
    B) Big cat from the trailer. Does everyone love cats? I'm sure that's all.
    C) Kislev's artillery. Do they have it? if so, how good is it?

    Very possible - though everyone here may of realised I always lean towards pessimism. If we get one or more rosters this week I will be pleased but I don't expect it.

    If I could pick what we got from today's "event" it would be a release date and an announcement when next we will get more Warhammer 3 news. Something like "releases November and we will reveal a faction and their roster every month up to release".

    That's what I would like to see today.

    It’s too difficult to call, as CA are marketing this game different to the other 2. The first 2 were are steady drip-drip of info while with game 3 CA are just dropping big bombs with radio silence inbetween.
    Interested in Sea Elves? Did you just call me a simpleton?

  • AmonkhetAmonkhet Registered Users Posts: 6,913
    I suspect we will get Kislev's roster tomorrow and Khorne's next week.
    Albion would make the perfect Total War Warhammer 3 pre-order; with Hengus the Druid and Bran MacKerog as Legendary Lords.

    It depends on if we get another period of radio silence after this week. I hope Indypride is right and the marketing period has really started now.

    Maybe not next week, but I am expecting both rosters by the end of the month.

    I think he’s talking about everything released in this period. It does seem that they have made buildings more interesting in sieges and that leaker has given info on some interesting features.

    Taking control of key areas in the Chaos Wastes to gain access to the RoC does seem like a lot of us said. They do have 2 extra races to go through so we might get one early.

    Do you work for CA? why are you taking it upon yourself to manage expectations?

    I do not think it is a question about him being right or not, I think it is a question about what he meant by it.

    I think he knows.

    A reason to think that he is not talking about everything released in this period, if by that you mean today and tmrw. Is that he specifically refers to what is released tmrw at the same time he talks about the coming content. Which leads me to believe the statement does not refer to the content coming today, and I think that is a very reasonable interpretation.

    Its completely dependent on how early the WH2 dlc is out for next month really.

    Do you think Indypride knows CA’s release schedule? Or do you think he’s been given access to a battle and been told to talk about it.

    Due to the fact I don’t know the inner workings of CA I wouldn’t know. They may have a few days of content and then stop again for a while to build up hype.

    No idea.

    I think he knows what is going to happen for the next couple of weeks, just like he knew what happened this week at least a week ago. And the way he talked about it is a indicator of that.

    Fair expectation. However, I would consider it to be a good sign if they released roster details today; though not sure if I would be correct to think that changes the pace of news.

    No it's all coming today.I live in England and they let all the locals know this.

    That reminds me, isn't it this time of year they pick one of us out of a hat and we have to marry Katie Price?

    Oh that sounds like an interesting tradition. Here in Florida it is just Bath Salts Week. It's like a dumber zombie apocalypse. It helps figure out who gets to be Florida Man this year though.
