hey guys, as you may have noticed i have recently made polls both here and on reddit about what area we as a community would like next. my results are as following:
total votes 145
36% on Europe (with 52 votes)
28% on Asia (41 votes)
12% on new world nations
10% on Oceania
9% on Africa
4% Native American
total votes 72
14% new world nation
7% Native American
what can this tell us?
well for one it tells us that reddit is in fact MORE Eurocentric than the forums, rather than the opposites. with over a 3rd of the votes while on the forum it only got to around 1/4 of the total votes.
the forums also distribute their votes more, only “native american” gets below 10% of the votes on the forum while almost 3 factions get below it on reddit. if one goes a little deeper and look at the actual factions asked for in the comments, then the forums again will mention more options, all be it one of the top comments on reddit does mention a total of 6 factions across Afro-Eurasia. All that said the most unique idea i saw was “Oirats” on reddit.
it also tells us, somewhat unsurprisingly, that the community in fact do want more Asian and European content more than anything else. to my surprise the 3rd most asked for content on both places is new world nations, aka they want more Mexicos and USAs. on both polls native Americans came dead last, which surprises me a bit considering people often seem to ask for them in the form of Mayans, Mapuche etc. might indicate that this section is very vocal but not actually that large, but could keep in mind this is a single choice poll so there is a chance if we had multiple options that some of these votes would be shaken around a little.
the community clearly wants more Europeans and Asian factions, they are by far the most popular option and rake home around 60% of the votes between them on both platforms.
and also Reddit seems a little more Eurocentric.
questions, comments, think I’m wrong? tell me in a comment!
while there was a couple of people saying “rework older civs/europeans” they didn’t seem particularly plentiful, only a comment or 2 and only a couple of upvotes.
its also a little besides the question i feel, not because Portugal as an example couldn’t be reworked to using guard halberds instead of dragoons but because the question really more was about adding content.
