ya maybe not pivitol but still great. I still believe he should be playable. And ya if it weren't for him cao cao would have died fighting xu rong. So maybe yuan shao would have been the third kingdom.lol

Novel for sure but maybe history. I know that in the novel cao cao would be dead if it wasn't for cao hong. Not really sure about history and please don't tell me whether or not he did in history(don't like my images of people ruined such as guan xing).
he has enough events for like a long musou mode but here is what I would put:
hu lao gate
xia pi
chi bi
tong gate
han zhong
wu zhang plains

ya my bad i'm going to get back on topic haha. I've always wondered, why haven't they added the battle where cao ren, cao hong, niu jin, and cao chun defended jing from zhou yu, only to have it taken by zhao yun. It was very important and has the potential to be a very fun battle

He is the Zhao Yun of Wei. Skilled, loyal, brave and resilient. An extremely good defensive general and held for long periods of time on his own. Had a Zhao Yun moment in his rescue of Niu Jin. His only defeat was at Bowang.

ye he seems like the perfect defensive general the only times where he was defeated was when he was on the offensive. KOEI realizes he is the defensive tank and I believe thats why he has all the armor and says things like "enemy officer outlasted".
