    Because he's meant to be a horrendous self-insert Mary Sue for the players, so some egotist from CA demonstrated it by naming him after himself.
    Furthermore, I consider that Daemon Prince must be removed.

    You mean the character that's horrendously underpowered and is attacked by all factions on all fronts and has the hardest cammpaign in the game is a Mary Sue?

    I love that build your own daemon prince is being equated to a Mary Sue. Who hurt you in life ?

    How is Daniel?
    Request scorched body textures, poisoned dying animations for infantry's skeletons, a blood slider that allows us to control how much blood appears in battle and make proper death animations for all ethereal units so they vanish for Blood for the Blood God 3.

    It doesn’t appear you know what a Mary Sue even is, but I doubt your post was intended to have anything resembling meaningful criticism (not that your criticism was asked for).

    Sense the latest patch he does a lot better. Sure packs a punch in my experience, one of the legendary lord that gets the most kills for me in a double mortis engine build.

    His campaign though... Oof do I hate that start position. Also they still need to put some extra choices or add to the post battle choices, glory is meaningless 1/3rd through a campaign.

    Everyone's asking stuff like "why is Daniel?" "Where is Daniel?" or "Who is Daniel?". But nobody's asking "How is Daniel?"
    Races I'd like to see, in order of preference: Chaos Dwarfs, Southern Realm/ DoW, Nippon, Hobgoblin Kharnate, Kuresh, Ind.

    I wonder is there an opposite trope of Mary Sue ?
    you know a character that should be far more able but is constantly dumpstered because of plot-shanking?

    If you're looking for a term for that concept, I petition that your plot-shanked, opposite of Mary Sue characters should be called Stannis'.

    Because yeah, in the show definitely, and in the books sort of, but to a much lesser degree, Stannis Baratheon absolutely gets "plot-shanked" multiple times :D

    I love plot shanking, brilliant concept, excellent work. Exhibit A: Valten in the Storm of Chaos timeline

    I think the opposite of a Mary Sue would be a Worf
    Just look up "the Worf effect". It's basically when a character is introduced as being strong and skilled only for the story lo have them fail continously (plot-shanking, as you put it) in order to make their opponents and/or teammates look more capable in comparison.

    Probably the best opposite indeed. And hey, you a trekkie too?

    Yeah that makes sense. Good one.
    Although Worf had his moments of awesomeness later in DS9.

    I hate what they did with the true king Stannis Baratheon, i almost quit the show after that.

    I called him Mediocrates. And other pretty tongue in cheek punny names in subsequent playthroughs. I think Yurisux the Subultimate (or something like that) was the last one.

    It's actually a fun even if frustrating campaign, definitely the best one from a "role playing" standpoint, and in my opinion one of only a handful that would make sense for the advisor to actually seek out (the others being Katarin and Kairos). It's a fundamentally flawed faction even though there's some pretty good army builds you can make with the mixed roster. It'll probably get totally eclipsed by the Warriors of Chaos depending on what exactly happens with the rework.
