    Either Ptolemy or Seleucids together with Rome and Carthage and you have the primary ancient powers of this period

    Damn not many votes for Nabeteans!

    I must change my profile pic...to go back to my original heritage...the desert!

    Although, I can't like Parthia. I need the Sassanids! A Great Persian Empire rebuilt!!!!!!!

    The desert...never forgets.

    Egypt seems to be very popular, what with AC Origins new DLC, the Hidden Ones, and the TK! I love Egypt.

    Is there a way UM Centurion, that we can convert religions into the old ones? I want Egypt to become not Greco-Roman Paganism, I want it to go back to the old Religion, is that possible?
    Jk aside, it looks awesome

    Racking up the Greek factions it looks like. Successor Kingdoms for dayssss.

    FWIW, I think only Macedon OR Achean should be included in the top 3, not both. Same for either Seleucid/Ptolemaic.

    Then the 3rd faction can be one with a different culture/playstyle and in a separate geographic region assuming the votes go that way for a barbarian or eastern faction.

    Since the first release is not going to be a full release, how will that affect the campaign when coming into contact with the other unfinished factions?

    Will the unfinished factions lack sufficient economies, armies , etc?

    Has the mod been tested for multiplayer campaign compatibility?

    Very good question. Expected that to be brought up eventually - Really it just comes down to fine tuning player mechanics. Right now, campaign is fully playable, but seasonal affects will need to be ironed out, as well as building effects. Missions, dilemmas, objectives, and game management from the players perspective takes like more time to iron out per faction. I have a date in mind, and would like to get those top factions playable by that date at the least. Wont necessarily mean the others are far behind.

    As far as multiplayer, it really is the last thing on our mind at the moment. Goal is eventually, but release first.

    Yes that's hilarious, please let not all three factions be hellenistic, haha. I totally support that. Although I would understand sticking with the votes, since you wanted to go down that path and changing it later could appear almost as a betrayal of some voters.
    But there a still some days to go, so we'll see where we finish. I'm going to play the living crap out of this anyways and other faction will surely be added later on.

    Tbh, Seleucids, Ptolemies and Achaean League share a lot of the same buildings, so I could try to get them all done in one go.

    And then we get a new poll on the 5 factions we want on first release?! Before we know it. The first release includes 25 playable factions.

    Well, thats hardly to blame on the modders. If, when given the choice, the players (of this forum) prefer to see hellenistic factions released first, that has nothing to do with the mod itself.
    Btw, all factions are going to be added later anyways and as far as I remember, the successor kingdoms had pretty awesome rosters and I'm sure they're loads of fun.

    Haha, yes, it seems like it.^^

    The successor kingdoms were just the most historically relevant for the time period and people only get one vote. If I had a second vote I would probably go for the arverni as they were a pretty major power in the west
