    after thinking hard about it, adding more factions can't be done or we would have even less players playing the existing factions. even having a second server with 5 new factions (IG, dark eldar, tau, sisters, and NPC necron) wouldn't work because most players would be on the original server

    Tough decision. While i want Tau i also want BT. hmmm...

    Yup, doesn't matter wich faction we want, the game should have a really healthy population before thinking about adding an extra faction.

    Which second server? All gonna be one anyway ^^

    Though a missing faction fakes the numbers dramatically. Dark Eldar and Tau mainly join Eldar until their faction exist, meaning that an existing population could be divided in half as soon as a new faction pops out ^^ There won't ever be fair faction balance. EVER.

    Also we don't even know what a healthy population at this point is. And then a lot also depends on the timezone you play in. Will be fun when most Eldar are american but most SM European :p

    I know it won't be balanced but it will be better if you split 10.000 eldars between craftworld and dark than to split 100.
  7. The point of my "reinforcements" idea is that you could have both!
    With the warp rift in the eastern fringe I can't remember the name of giving Tau forces a potential tunnel to a new segmentum then a tau expeditionary force could feasibly end up near arkhona and reinforce the elder/orks as a alliance of mutual benefit while they "dig in" so to speak, the greater good advocates xenos cooperation and the elder are happy to take advantage while the orks will fight for anyone for more dalia and the promise of a bigger fight

    I know I'm in the minority when I say this but...

    the more factions the better simply becuase it will mean people will gravitate to their preferred faction option sooner rather then later, theyre going to do it eventually so we may as well get it over with so we can move on lol

    otherwise we will have the butt-hurt crowd wailing and gnashing their teeth (possibly rage quiting) when their favorite faction whos been winning (or at least doing well) suddenly loses 1/3rd of their population to a new faction and suddenly their getting reamed left and right

    New faction for me. I love variety more than most any other aspect of games. Keep me interested with the full breadth of 40k and I'll be hooked for years.
