Human players like to play Human factions.

rrrrfgrrrrfg Registered Users Posts: 57
Hello everyone,

Polls state that the Empire is the most beloved faction in the Total War Warhammer. Likewise, the factions that the community of players most expect to see in Warhammer 3 are Kislev and Cathay.

In other words, human players like to play human factions.

And the message that emerges from here, in my opinion, is that CA should stop ignoring Southern Realms and the Arabs and to give them a place of honor in the Warhammer series.

Likewise- in the future, when Vampires destroy us and become the majority in the world, CA will have to focus on Vampire factions. Baaahhhh!!!!!!

Let me know what you think.

    Well I really want Southern Realms and Araby, but I rarley touch the empire.
    It is not a bad faction, but there are so many awesome things in warhammer that it is easy for me to ignore them.

    Sorry, wrong. If a faction being "human" was what mattered most, Norsca and Bretonnia would see more play as well since they're also predominantly human which is however not the case. What makes the Empire so popular is more likely the fact that they're so easy to understand as they're one of the least "exotic" factions.

    There's nothing else than human man-things, yes-yes.
  • manpersalmanpersal Registered Users Posts: 2,309
    Then why Bretonnia isn't the second most popular race?

    Empire most beloved? According to your poll?
    That's odd, according to offical data shared to us by Valve Corporation it is High Elves who are most beloved, CA even confirmed durning WH3 gameplay release stream.
    Humans don't like Human races.
    Still, Souther Realms or DoW will come, worry not.

    Norska contains mostly monsters, and Bretonnia is not interesting because they have no unit that the Empire does not have

    Still human, just the undead kind..

    But to answer your question, maybe lots of TWWH players like the Empire because it is the most familiar to the historical titles they know and like already.

    And we've gone straight into special pleading and goalpost shifting. Should make you think how strong your original point was in the first place.

    A general rule of fantasy is that the most popular choice is the most basic. That's why Human Fighters show up more than anything else in D&D

    This is also true for the Southern Realms and Arabi.

    Don't want to agree with beef but that's kind of irrelevant in the fact of CA straight up saying the HE were the most popular race in warhammer 2. Empire were the most popular in warhammer 1, however we don't know where they lay now.

    CA stated that they were the Most Popular WH2 Race as in, the most popular race that was introduced by Warhammer 2. So, beef is still wrong as it doesn't compare any Warhammer 2 races' popularity with any Warhammer 1 races' popularity.

    Further, the statement that steam achievements are a reliable metric is fundamentally flawed. It fails to acknowledge the multiple issues with getting steam achievements in Warhammer 2 or the fact that some achievements were introduced later or only became functional later on making it a really unreliable metric that cannot be used to determine the overall most popular race of the entire series.
    Further, Beef mostly wants the steam achievements to be indicative of overall popularity because he falsely has held the position that the more popular High Elves are would mean that his personal pet idea of Sea Elves becoming a completely separate race would be just as popular.

    The issue with SR is that their playstyle will be mostly similar to that of the Empire.

    Araby is another story with all their magical bs, but CA seem to have put a stone on them.

    Sure but it's just a survey, and it was which is the best campaign not which is the most played faction.

    CA literally stated before the gameplay reveal that HE were the most played.

    With a little imagination, it would be possible to do something big with SR, as CA did with Vampires Coast. My favorite race, by the way.

    The statements were ambiguous enough to leave space to interpretation, but if it was up to me I'd add to rule to forbid any thread or discussion about which race is the most popular.

    Surveys have little value compared to official CA statements. And even if Empire was absolutely the most popular race it doesn't automatically mean that all human races will be equally loved, especially when Bretonnia is far less popular than the Empire.

    Empire just have a super fun designed roster with something for every playstyle, and the feel of playing steel faith and gunpowder against all odds never gets old.

    Lizards and mice ... The personification of animals reminds me of characters from the world of toddlers, like Mickey Mouse. Not something that fits into a serious fantasy world.
