    Default Which faction are you going to be playing as?

    The title is pretty self explanatory. When we finally get our greedy little hands on the beta, what faction are going to play when you first load up the game?I myself can't wait to get my hands on Bactria, they are such a different army to the others in the game at the models are actually beautiful, not that the other skins aren't amazing aswell. There is just something about Bactria that draws me too them. So which faction will you play as?

    I join the ever-growing community of Bactria-lovers. However, after the amazing preview, I must say that the Tsorims are almost as good...Silver medal, no doubt.

    You haven't seen all the factions... and I must say that my favourite right now was not among the ones shown so far...

    Bartix, of course. Failing that, the Seleucids look pretty damn good too, but all the factions previewed so far have been awesome.

    I will probably play as the Romans first and then try Bactria or one of the Successor states. Hopefully by the time I finish two or three campaigns, the real version will be out (or pretty close to it).

    Will probably go for Seleucids, as my sig image suggests.

    Hope Thracians are in there

    I'll play a Roman faction, as befits my imperialistic drive.

    i'm gonna go for Bactria. Seleucids will be too hard of a start to begin playing again. since i havent played the game in 5 months. waiting for beta or RTR 6.0 (please dont stone me).

    Bactria must be amazing. Interested in their siege engines/artillery. also excited about the mix of persian bows, Greek heavy inf, persians cav, and good javelineers (ifi recall it correctly)

    So many choices, so little time ...

    I think i'll have to let fate decide which faction I'm gonna play. Once I have seen all the factions, I'll be picking my favourites and then: coin-tossing it is.
    ...
    Problem is, I like all the previews so far ... It is gonna be a hell to pick a faction.

    Oh yeah, got a point there. But where in the name of Baal am I going to find a d20? d6 is easy enough. So, 3 d6 and a coin...

    Very confusing math is. :)

    D20s are easy to buy in every RPG accessories shop. Also, you can find a number of dice generators online :)

    And what about the most interesting secret faction no one seems to have identified so far? Is that your personal favourite, Eadingas?

    Nah, it's one of the old ones (not that I confirm there being any new ones! :), we just didn't have a preview of it yet.

    You can use the random number generator of any scientific calculator, that gives a random number between 0,001 and 0,999. The formula is simple:

    Bartix probably. Pontix and maybe Hellenix then after that. Certainly some non-previewed factions have my interest too though.

    Default Re: Which faction are you going to playing as?

    barbarians first, definitely. i love the look of those units, esp the soldurii (german?)

    then seleukids, or possibly ptolemaii. It's unfortunate that egpyt was so lame in vanilla, because i loved playing those faction in MTW (turks, almohads etc), very differnt game playing as some of the lighter, middle eastern units.

    also, i can't wait to see what's being done about more of the eastern units, armenians, parthians etc
