I assumed Sun Yi's fan-base was wife related


So he's the first male character to be added because his wife was notable and not the other way around? That's hilarious. :lol:

I'm honestly hard-pressed to think of a worse and less notable person they could add to Wu. Even Puyang Xing would make more sense. :roll:

It is an amusing twist.

I think the feeling, till very recent Cai Wenji and Xing Cai, that a woman won't get added without her husband in it. Perhaps some still have that feeling. Or, give a character long enough, and people want their brothers, sisters, spouse, third cousin twice removed...

Sun Yi as a younger Ce who idolised his brother could led to some really fascinating hypothetical scenarios. That is coming from the worlds biggest Sun Ce fan though :lol:

I would say, controversially, after the inclusion of Yuan Shu, maybe a few of his notable officers, STOP adding characters. Focus on features etc.

Hopefully they won't actually change the weapons of these characters.
I really doubt Shanie could lift a bench

Well according to KOEI Warriors on tumblr, those are their new EX-weapons. Liu Shans weapon is bugging me too. Very unfitting...
But on the other hand I'd never play with Liu Shan in an Empires game, only with a CAW.

They are the new EX weapons.

I hoped the bench would go to Jian Yong if added. Doesn't fit the direction they're going with Liu Shan imo.

Now, now -- if you want a challenge, who better than Liu Shan? Plus "I don't know a weapon from a place to sit down!" is strangely fitting for Liu Shan...

Unless I specifically say otherwise, assume I am talking about historical Three Kingdoms, and not the novel.

Xiahou Mao?.. Han Xuan?... Gongsun Gong!

I really don't mind these new weapons, but i'm just so used seeing these characters with their old weapons, and if this is like DW7E, these characters will have the new weapons through DW9.
