    Why is this logical? Fifty factions provides ample room for some Native Americans.

    My post at .org was derived from these posts by Thamis:

    We have over 50 factions in the game, and we can't create all of them in the full detail they deserve. Therefore we limit the number of playable factions, but we can't say which ones are playable just yet, simply because we haven't made a final decision. Rest assured though that all major factions (even the non-playable ones) will be represented in high detail.

    Don't under-estimate the other nations at the time.

    - Russia was just modernizing its military, and was conquering Siberia.
    - Poland-Lithuania was the biggest central European power.
    - Sweden fought over 20 years of expansionary wars.
    - Austria-Hungary drove back the Ottomans and conquered Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia.
    - Prussia emerged as the first modern state.
    - England reached the peak of its power.
    - The Ottoman Empire stretched from Persia across all of North Africa to Croatia and the Crimea.
    - Spain's empire is in decline, but still covers the whole world.
    - The United Provinces (Netherlands) had the largest merchant empire at the time. They were insanely rich.
    - Venice is in decline, but also insanely rich.

    This time period is rich of great nations vying for power, in Europe, America, and India (the struggle between the Marathas and the Mughals took place in this century, with the English, French, Portuguese, and Dutch meddling in local affairs and destabilizing both local empires). Expect many epic confrontations between great powers, which can sometimes be too dangerous to be fought in home territories.

    No, that is NOT the initial playable faction list. It's just a list of important nations in the period.

    Fifty is excellent news! At first I was disappointed only ten factions were playable and I guessed that meant at max twenty or so factions in the game, which is obviously far too few if the map is to cover the whole world. I'm ecstatic.

    Cheers for clearing that up Lusted,

    Though the fact that they were even mentioned in the first place leads me to believe they will be included

    @Atheist Priest

    50 factions to few?! don't get greedy mate we've never had this many factions in a game! Im just thankful we're getting more than europe and token middleast/northern africa!

    It's just 50 to represent how huge the world is and because there are A LOT of small kingdoms.

    and TBH those 15 Indian kingdoms don't really need their individual units... obviously them all being clones wouldn't be good but you need a balance.
    well thats wat i was saying, i said that alot of them would be 1 province kingdoms and dont need to be playable. my main question was whether or not 10 was the starting number, or the total number of playable factions, which has been answered, thanx.

    Default 50 Factions?

    The general announcement I read said ten playable factions. I believe only some of these factions have been named. I read in a few threads that there will be 50 factions (including the non-playable, but hopefully modable to play factions). Is the 50 factions number correct? Did CA confirm this number?

    Yes that's right. Although there will probably be many emergent, and non-playable minor factions.

    IIRC Thamis said "more then 50 factions".

    I've already discussed this in another topic with Armfelt but we never reached to a satisfying conclusion on my part.
    Why does CA choose to lock some factions? Is it because they have too few units like the Aztecs in MTW2?

    It's because we have to test every playable faction extensively before shipping the game. Basically, we have our testers play every faction's campaign many many times, checking for crashes, balance problems, and fun factor. If we made all factions directly playable, we'd be obliged to test all of them, which is too expensive.

    Does that mean only the roman factions were tested in the campaign in RTW? :hmmm:

    im still wondering y there r only 10 playable factions when there is a total of 50. i've discussed this on another forum, and most people were under the impression that 10 was just the starting factions, and that more would be unlocked, however, from reading the official press releases, it looks like 10 total.

    Thamis can u maybe give me a concrete answer on whether the 10 playable factions r only the starting playable factions? or is it 10 playable total (without modding)
