Taiwan?

Postby Yakhont » Mon 9 Sep 2013 05:25

So the thing that really stands out in WRD is the lack of Taiwan.

During the time frame and up to now, Taiwan or 'Republic of China' as it is officially known has been in anticipation of a mainland China attack and has a prettyy capable force smack in the the RD geographic area

So I am wondering why it is not in game. I am NOT asking for a new faction but this is too obvious not to have been discussed by Eugen. I am wondering what made Eugen not include Taiwan and shove in slightly dubious ANZAC instead

My bet is that Focus wants to increase presense in China and including Taiwan makes it much more likly to b banned

IIRC from PLA watcher literature, Taiwan did not become a priority until after the Third Taiwan Strait Crisis (1995-6).

Australia and New Zealand sell more copies and inspire more Commonwealth moan threads for Eugen to satisfy their sadistic desire for consumer tears.

Presence of Taiwan Armed Forces will result in a ban of the game in People's Republic of China.
I.e. less worldwide spellings of the game. Who wants that? Me, certainly, not.

Red Dragon is already going to be banned if there's any kind of back story to the campaigns. BF2, for example, only made it through because it's a completely sterile multiplayer game without any political context.

Having said that, Taiwan would just be another M48 Patton & Starfighter ultra-minor that no one would play, so I'm OK with them being excluded.

I think this unit gives all the reason you need for Taiwan to be ingame. Screw the potential sales in China

I'd say screw China and their stupid censorship laws. But then again even Eugen has to make a living, even if thats on the dime
