    With all the reskin complaints (both valid and overly dramatic ones) how is there not more people complaining about a potential reskin LL intro scene

    Maybe there's a step too far on the complaints since intros are literally just there for maybe all of a minute or two.

    Im not a fan of GBoG (nothing against him, either, I just don’t follow Youtubers) but I find it highly unlikely that he uploaded a video about this without verifying him for himself that the video is in the game files, because it’s an easy thing to verify.

    It doesn’t seem at all implausible that CA would reuse an animation for a FLC lord’s selection video.

    It actually does seem implausible considering that it's completely unprecedented.
    Reusing assets for FLC content is not unprecedented.
    hes not an flc!! he is in game, he came with Wood elves dlc!!! They would be “updating the wood elves dlc” maning him playable as a race.
    You no longer need the WE DLC for the Red Duke and you no longer need the Beastmen DLC for Toddy, it was changed during Warhammer 2 life cycle.

    still they are not free downloadeble characters, they are just core game characters or immortal empires exclusive characters. Thing is I dont want CA to give them to us as flc, just an update when full map arrives, Neferata and X empire faction need to bring their own ORIGINAL never seen FLC characters.

    All these people saying it's a hoax or some high-effort fanmade thing and then go on to say CA would give him a unique intro animation and not copy + paste; look at Alberic de Bordeleaux - dude is literally a generic lord unit but with a trident. It wouldn't be a first time CA have reused an animation/visual look.

    dont want red duke and toddy taking other new characters spot and dev time. Weve had them like for years in game, when they moves the dwarf and slaughtererr to their own starting positions, they never announced them as FLCs just updated the race.

    The animations for a lord selection video have never been repurposed for another lord. I don't understand why you need the difference between a lord selection video and combat animations explained to you, unless you're being dense on purpose. Even Vlad, the example you people keep pointing to, reuses combat animations BUT HAS A LORD SELECTION VIDEO.

    Whoah! No thanks. Toddy first, all others later please. We've waited long enough for them to have made a Teutogen Guard model!

    So what's the main opinion then? Hoax or genuine leak?

    For the moment, wait and see, but I really doubt that the guy that makes STO would try to trick GBoG like this.

    On the other hand, I find it strange that no other youtuber has talked about it, specially since most of them have already commented on the datamined IE map, since that isn't technically a leak bit something already in the game data.

    There is nothing stopping CA from repurposing a set of animations. There is no reason to think they wouldn’t.

    Is the fact that they've never done it before not enough reason to think that they wouldn't?

    No, it’s not. CA do new things all the time.

    Isnt that Lokhir's animation? I have a bad feeling this is someone's trolling.

    Image it's just some random CA dude put it there so they can trick us

    The excuse that "CA do new things all the time" can be used to justify literally anything so it's not even worth saying. They could make all DLC from this point on free. They could make mortal empires not require Warhammer 1 or 2. They could turn the game into a first person shooter overnight. Pygmies could be the first campaign pack. I mean after all, they do new things all the time right? The fact of the matter is that they have never reused a lord video before, even for lords that reuse existing combat animations, so there is no reason to expect that they would suddenly change from that precedent.

    Please let it be true!

    Hopefully it happens alongside a Vampire DLC...

    I didn’t say we should expect they should. I said it is no reason to expect they wouldn’t. Those are two different statements.

    The reason to expect the would reuse an animation in a lord select video is that it’s apparently in the game files.

    I would much prefer him to be moved somewhere else, so Mallabaude can come in the future and be placed in his city.

    Whether the Red Duke becomes playable or not, I feel confident in saying there's no way CA is going to reuse Lokhir's faction intro animation for the Red Duke's. If you're going to compromise presentation, you don't do it on the character selection screen where you get your first view (and close-up) of the character, at least not to this extent.

    It'd be a whole new level of ugly, not even the least effort FLC LLs had that. And if it ever does come out like that, I'm certain it will be due to some communication problem or code oversight, nothing intentional.

    Well, lucky us that Mallabaude isn't only present in the RPG.

    Come on my boy accept the truth, reject the wench of the lake, the Black Knigth can show you the truth, you need to accept him as your rightful king.

    So how can people even claim that it's a Warhammer 1 file when those types of faction intro videos didn't even exist in Warhammer 1?

    An animation can exist independently from the intro video it was eventually used in.
