Who will get Dunked on in the Upcoming Trailers?

WyvaxWyvax Registered Users Posts: 4,569
On the assumption that the following race reveal trailers aren't going to be a double feature like the Trail By Fire trailer is, who do you think will be the punching bag faction for each involved?

My guesses are such: Nurgle will either be fighting more Kislevites, the Empire or the Dwarfs in his trailer showcase, Tzeentch will be next fighting against either Nurgle or one of the three aforementioned races. Slaanesh will be paired up against Khornate forces (Elves are quite fluffy but I think such a match up will be saved for a LP). Cathay will be the last revealed race and be fighting against the daemons of Tzeentch. Be'lakor will get his own unique trailer to show off the undivided Daemons of Chaos, but it'll probably be a narrative focused one and not focus on units fighting.

Bonus speculation! The Chaos Dwarfs will be shown off either trashing hordes of Greenskins, or subduing daemons to power their industry. Just imagine a Dawi Zhar Daemonsmith manhandling a Bloodletter by the horns and tossing it kicking and screaming into a furnace to power their war engines. The Ogre Kingdoms will be shown off going on a rampage against either Greenskins, one of the Chaos races or Cathay. While the Hobgoblin Khaganates will be overtaking the Cathayans and driving all before them. Nagash if he comes in a brand new race will likely be featured subjugating Vampire Counts, Coast and Tomb Kings before marching on the living.

Anyway, that's my speculation for upcoming race reveal trailers. What's y'alls?

    Khorne. Must be. Kislev just won once. HE never won anything during wh2 showcase.

    Khorne, they're the best jobbers in the business.

    If it's a minor showcase they'll likely dunk on a major. And vice versa.

    Good vs Evil is the classic matchup. We'll see some god on god action for sure but probably not as much as the classic good vs evil.
    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!

    They really should do Cathay Vs Tzeentch when we get the Grand Cathey Reveal given the issues they have with Tzeenchian Cults.

    Completely agree, not sure why so many people think nurgle suits them better.

    As per OP, I think Kislev will get dunked on in trailers, and Cathay will do some dunking.
    We can already see the start of it in the two trailers so far. Kislev either die or hold the line.
    As for Cathay I expect them to do some dunking for PR reasons with the chinese market.

    Pretty much, shouldn't be a requirement, but sadly is.

    Probably. But at the end of the day it's a trailer - and will probably still be really good.

    They probably don't know official/fanmade lore so they draw ideas from current real-world events. Hence the Nurgle.

    I think you will see Cathay wrecking Tzeentch
    Change is on the way...

    The Nurgle connection probably comes from Tamurkhan, but I agree that having them square up against Tzeentch is the better choice, since Tzeentch is the god that seems to be associated the most with Grand Cathay.

    IF CA is smart, each faction will get it's limelight. Each faction will get it's own trailer and the "2 factions" trailer is just an appetizer or mood setter.
    Every wrong is recorded. Every slight against us, page after page, ETCHED IN BLOOD! Clan Gunnisson! Karak Eight Peaks! JOSEF BUGMAN!

    #PrayForBorisBokha (don't you dare kill of one of the 2 bigname Kislev characters in Backstory... he's the Bear guy!)

    The Empire still hasn't gotten their FLC LL. We need Marius Leitdorf of Averland!

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him? For a Middenland DLC with Boris and the Ar-Ulric!

    Queek could smell their hatred, ratcheted to a degree that even he could not evoke in their simple hearts. He stepped over the old orange-fur’s body, eager to see for himself what it was they saw. But he heard it first.

    I don't think we should consider Trial by Fire a faction trailer. I think it's just a "narrative" trailer. To show the concept behind the game.

    I think we will still get an individual faction trailer for both Kislev and Khorne, later down the road - to showcase their faction more directly.

    If CA is smart, they just bring out the High Elves.

    They have colonies in the darkland and far cathay, so they new race can meet them for a good ol elve butt kicking session.

    yeah, I'd kinda compare it to this trailer:

    I also would say that Khorne certainly wasn't getting dunked on in the Trial By Fire trailer. To me it looked more like it was Kislev that was getting its teeth kicked in at the curb and then getting robbed of its lunch money by Khorne.

    It was definitely a bit of both. Both looked strong and had their good aspects shown off.

    The thing is that there is official lore for Cathay having issues with Tzeentch cults so... yeah
