Now that the number of civilizations has been expanded, I firmly believe the Wallachians should be part of the game, it’s about time we have this important civilizations which played a role in Medieval Eastern Europe and had some memorable battles with the Ottomans, Slavs and Poles. Of these, the battles against the Ottomans stand out, as they held them off and mounted quite a challenge on several occasions. Just think of Vlad The Impaler, one of the most important princes in their history, but there are more who had an impact in Medieval Europe, especially in that part of the world.
They lived in nowadays Romania, played a role in many huge campaigns of the time, were evidenced by the Pope many times, and they deserve to be included in the game. I mean, if you have Slavs, Magyars, Lithuanians, Cumans, or Bulgarians, you should have also Wallachians.
The core of the army was the noble cavalry, largely armoured with lighter armoured followers. Light horse archers on the flanks and foot archers provided the main infantry base. Smaller numbers of mercenary and locally raised armoured foot, crossbows and handgunners were also available. That’s just a part of their military approach, the entire civilization had many fascinating aspects which I’m sure many players would enjoy.
I can tell you I wouldn’t be the only one interested in playing with them, I would buy the civilization just as I did with the two new ones that were introduced to the game recently. I really hope it draws the interest of the other players or the tech team, I would just love to have them in the game soon.
