Knew I was missing someone:
Make that seven down and three to go.
Wondering if a wandering mod could change the title
With todays preview, we finally reach a point where more than half of the Occultus factions have been previewed (See list below).
An excellent visual representation by CanOmer at the TWC:
Now only three faction slots are free, and no culture slots.The previewed factions in order of appearance are:
5. Taksashila (Mauryan Satrapy)
6. Bosporan Kingdom(Announced but not previewed)
7. The Nabataean Kingdom or Malkûtâ Nabâta |The sheer perfidy of the EB team- if you peruse the post you will notice Nabatea's status as Nabataea (denied by team)|
Ps. not counting the Pritanoi as they already exist in EB as the Casse.
If asked to predict the remaining three factions, my choices would be in order of probability
1. A Celto-Iberian faction
Though not yet confirmed by the EB team, based on the comprehensive way they were presented in EB, and on random comments by EB members (innuendo-Moros' 9,955 posts ), IMHO they might as well be declared.
The strongest point in their favor is that of all proto-factions represented in the original EB, they are the only one with an completely developed troop and trait list, their only competitors being the Helvetii.
2. A celto-thracian faction
3. A Syracrusan faction
Thats it, on the basis of the existing culture slots and the amount of archival information available, I cannot think of any more factions that are likely(note the emphasis on likely) to be worthy of inclusion.
Pps. I am not including pseudo-nationalist sentiments here, and would prefer that this thread be free of them.
What do you think are the most likely contenders ??
Should this be merged with the 'New Factions' thread?
Could have posted there, but just wanted to celebrate the fact that 2/3rd s of the occultus factions have been revealed and that on a more personal note my name just got referenced: check the Takashila preview(History Section)
PS. That thread is also getting a bit crowded with quite a few of the options either plain out rejected or previewed
PPS. an excellent list given by Future Filmmaker also at the TWC:
Sequani (denied by team)
Helvetii (denied by team)
Massalia (denied by team)
Nabataea (denied by team)
