Neutral nation packs

Postby Falcrack » Tue 12 Jul 2016 16:34

I was wondering given that some of the nations in upcoming nations packs could have conceivably fought on the blue side should the cold war have turned hot (cough FINLAND cough), what if they could introduce nations which you could select for either a red or blue deck?

I know it sounds revolutionary right, I mean never in the history of RTS game is one faction allowed to fight against the same faction. But it could add an interesting twist to things.

Has been suggested before, has been turned down before.

Would be interesting though.

I mean we have Red v Red, Blue v Blue and Red v Blue. So Finland can fight the USSR if you wish. Just no mixed vs mixed because those decks would have negative avaliablity. :lol:

Also I would imagine that at leas some of the post 90ies prototypes are influenced by whether Finland / Yugoslavia would be blue or red.

I totally agree on that. A third faction (green, 3rd world or whatever) should be created. Quite a lot of nations aren't easy to categorize as Blue or red, and could conceivably be on both side.

I think it's a matter of what the program code is capable of. I wouldn't be surprised if the Wargame series was built with the assumption that there would only ever be "Side A" and "Side B", and it were impossible to create "Side C" without creating an entirely new game from the ground up.

A post a while back advocated making a "neutral nation" aspect. These countries could chose to fight on Reddor or Bluefor side.
