  2. Re: Looking to branch out to Attila - best mod/s that feel similar to DeI

    DEI is definitely not a mere "reskin," and Rome 2 is more fixed than Attila.

    Also there's still technically room for one or two more factions and the biggest problem with an emergent faction is that they're unplayable. This isn't like a Paradox game where you can tag-switch.
