Okay so lets try to predict whats next based on the current DLC civs. And it wont be just “haha Europe go brrrr” (sorta) but it has to be civs that are both already in the campaigns and can work without new architecture (probably the better the earlier). So these are the civs that appear on campaigns by order of appearances;
Tamils (but including all Dradivians for the sake of simplicity)
Prithviraj 2, 3, 5
Gajah Mada 5
El Cid 3 and 5
Mamluks/Egyptians (honestly this civ is questionable, but I could see it happening unlike civs like Sosso)
(if Egypt included also Saladin 1)
El Cid 2, 3, 4, 5
Possible replacement of some of the players of the Berber campaign
Ghurids/Afghans (basically Delhi + Ghurids)
Prithviraj 4, 5
Welsh (not a fan, but very possible)
Edward Longhanks 1, 3
Gengis Khan 1
Barbarosa 1, 2
Barbarosa 1, 2, 4
Yodit 2, 3
Gurjarati/Rajputs/Northern India civ (another questionable adition from the point of view of the devs since it would leave Indians representing Mughals)
Arguably all of Prithviraj
Dracula, all scenarios
All of Montezuma but scenario 1
Sosso (extremely questionable choice simply because they are more unknown than even a civ like Kanem would be)
Sundjata, all scenarios but scenario 2.
Gengis Khan 1, 2
Scythians (Alans and Sogdians included)
Attila 1, 2, 5
Gengis Khan 3
Gengis Khan 3
Sundjata 2 (as Wagadou)
Sundjata 2 (as Niger)
Dutch (Burgundians kidn of cover them so idk)
Grand Dukes 5
Mention more if you want. You could also make a case for Romans considering they are in every scenario of two diferent campaigns.
After looking at it I think the most possible DLC following the current format and following this campaign apearances thing would be an Spain DLC including Aragonese and Moors. I would personally slap into it an aditional Viking Sigurd I campaign, since he had some “adventures” around that region. Btw, this isnt what I want, but what I would expect following the current wave of DLCs
Not a fan of either to be honest. This campaign appearance thing is secondary. And considering the general feedback I think the most likely thing next is an Indian expansion, both due to Euro civ fatigue as well as general request frequency.
Exactly. If it has nothing to do with old campaigns, the dev will even not need to change the old data.
BTW, since Xi Xia basically is equal to Tanguts, it is better change one of them to Liao, then Khitans may have a chance for Liao. I wonder why the dev still keeps both Xi Xia and Tanguts in that campaign.
I knew, just an option for replacing one of Xi Xia and Tanguts.
In the campaign of Bukhara, the White Huns and Hun Raiders actually are the Iranic nomads, which is close and may be covered by Sogdians (Scythians you stated). In the other hand, Gokturks in that campaign also could be different from current Turks civ, considering the relations and potential choices of new campaigns with Tang Dynasty of China. Also, Khazars may probably be covered by Gokturks too since it was also led and ruled by Ashina tribe.
It was possible to be the Iranic nomads who called themselves “Hun” or “Xiongnu”.
Also, they ruled Sogdia then.
To be honest, I think it is not bad that Uyghurs is covered by Tatars.
One is Uyghurs was one who opposed Ashina tribe of Gokturks and toppled their rule. Other one, It was influenced by Mongols later like Tatars.
You could check this template in traditional Chinese wiki.
It colored the relative groups on Mongolian Plateau in the same color.
Xiongnu is pink, Xianbei and Khitans are bright blue, Gokturks is bright violet, Tele and Uyghurs (who may be represented by Tatars) are bright indigo, Mongols is orange brown (Mongol Empire is the darker one).
The Moors are literally what the Spanish called the Berbers, it’s like having an “Iranians” civ along with the Persians
Also the Aragonese coat of arms is literally part of the Spanish civ Icon
Basically most of these are already covered by other civs
