    Talking DLC Faction Expectations

    Ok guys so some people might claim that its too early to talk about DLC's however i do not agree. Already six factions are annouced and only two slot are left and we know that those to will be either egypt (ptolemei), parthia or selecuids so not much room for argument there. In one of his posts jack lusted already said that the egypt faction will be improved and made more realistic (if anyone can post a link to the original post i will be gratefull) so it is the most likely faction that will be in the inital release. As much as i dislike the idea of dlc, there isnt any other options for expansion and unfortunately my hopes for mods are not high since the modding support of CA has been shrinking in the recent games and we already know that the meeting that was held by CA in london last year did not go very well for modders. We will see. But in the meantime, i want to see your ideas for DLC factions. What do you want to see most? or first? whch faction or factions would you be willing to purchase? I personally love dacians and will be very happy to see them available. So lets hear what you guys want. (p.s. Im not an agent sent by CA to see your expectations. I'm but a humble player like your selves or am I ? )

    Seeing as the revealed factions fit with the roman expansion, as usual, I'd say the Ptolemaioi are a given. While the other slot must be something in Asia Minor or the Caucasus, I'd say Pontos or Hayasdan are the most likely, due to the amount of sources and Mithridates/Tigranes lore. Plus the apparent disdain for the Seleukidai by CA XD

    I'd prefer Pahlava, but with the other factions, having such a lonely spot in the east would be terrible...
    Honestly I'm wondering how far east the map will really go...

    As for DLCs, I can see cultures packs: hellenistic DLC, arabic DLC, nomadic DLC etc...

    Here's me hoping for the Dacians.

    Totally agree with you there mate it would be great to have them as a playable faction. We will see i guess at the end of the day its all about demand and if there is enough demand andcash flow than i think we will see quite a few factions as dlc's. My only hope is that they make each faction unique not just a clone than they might be worth purchasing.

    Obviously, I would love to see the left out faction the most. Though it might become some sort of pre-order bonus that will only be DLC to those who missed out. By left out faction, I mean one of the three major ones left that won't make the cut.

    Yep i agree mate. Thats what i think as well. All three factions (egypt, selecuids and parthia) are of vital imprtonce and which ever one is left out, im sure that we will see it as a dlc. However, i couldnt include any of them in the pole nsince.we dont know.which one will be left out.

    No one expects the Scythian DLC!

    Out of the way with no other "majors" even close, and a unique unit roster, it would offer a radically different gameplay experience from anything we've seen revealed thus far. Those aspects could both be big selling points for CA.

    If I had to bet on future DLC that's where my money would be.

    Ehm. Yes you are right mate scythia would make for a very interesting faction to play. But it completely slipt of my mind. As they are a major cavalary faction of the era more than anyone else, they would be very interesting..

    Probably some very Eastern factions would make it as DLC, like Baktria coupled with the Parthians.

    So from the recent updates, it seems that the dlc faction will be released in culture packs of three instead of single releases. Cosidering the fact that the first one is hellenistic culture, what do you think about the rest? I think that we are likely to see a barbarian culture with a spanish facion, dacia and scythia factions. Also i think that there will be aneastern culture pack with selecuids, baktria and perhaps armenia and may be saba? What are your thought about it? Which culture packs you would like to see?

    The answer is very simple really, I have created this poll before they announced the last two factions. This means that at the time, no body knew that parthia was going to be playable. Thats why its in the poll. So next time please check all the announced factions before voting.

    Oh, this poll dates back to February, long before the faction announcements. We had no idea what would be where. That's why some of the factions listed are already in pre-order DLC.

    Of the choices given, I would like to have the Sarmations I think. Any people with Amazons (per Herodotus ) as part of their ancestry have to be pretty cool!
