If Cao Cao was to have more strategists, it would have to be Xun Yu and Guo Jia.


To be honest, Guo Jia did very little to warrant a characterization (which I agree can be said for a few who have already been immortalised in the DW series), someone with a far more 'fleshed out' career or life would add even more variety to the series as it stands. Someone such as Mao Jie who was by all accounts a strategist-cum-advisor, as well as a military aide and later, a naval commander. I'm sure Koei could integrate his life effortlessly into DW. :D

Fu Tong for Shu perhaps (which paves the way for his son Qian to be included at some point)? In the same vain as Zhou Yu is for Wu in the series, a strategist/advisor as well being 'warlike'?

For Wu, definitely Lu Kang.

My top strategists adds would be Jia Chong for Jin, Lu Su and Zhuge Jin for Wu, Cheng Yu for Wei, and Zhuge Zhan(if he counts) for Shu. If Zhuge Zhan doesn't really count then I'd say Shu doesn't need anymore strategists they would all fall into Zhuge Liang's shadow anyways.

He died at Yiling didn't he? On reflection, his son Qian would be a more worthy inclusion, however Tong's SGYY death-roar of “No Han general would ever submit to the dogs of Wu!!” would make for a dramatic DW at Yiling... 8-)

Zhuge Zhan and his son Jing could be an interesting inclusion, which I'd like to see personally, but Zhan's shortcomings would dull his father's prestige in KOEI's eyes...unless they include him to bolster the mournful tone of Shu's last days maybe.

Cheng Yu was great but i rate Jia Xu over him.

Really, no one mentions Zhuge Liang much here. Or Sima Yi.
They lived so long for a reason.

Zhou Yu would be my choice though. A great admiral, clever man with a crafty mind, good mentor and husband, as well as a talented musician!
I've a brave warrior in my army. Shen Ai is his name, and he can slay this Hua Xiong.

Wei has no more famous commanders, Shen Ai takes lead of the vanguard!

Cheng Yu then. THey could do an interesting story with him, being both a general and an adviser. He was also a cannibal... charming!

If not him, then Zhuge Zhan. He seemed smarter than Jiang Wei at least.

Chen Gong has an interesting story, but he was kind of a fail. I mean, Lu Bu fell under his direction.

Lu Kang count as a strategist? Give him to Wu so he can be in the Jin storyline.
