With E3 2016 and its new found hype, I decided to create a new poll so see how people feel today. I also included an option for those who can't decide. :)

I am surprised, no one is taking Vikings until now :eek:
I thought because of the serial everything is going to be full of Vikings... but maybe they've just not voted yet :D

06-13-2016, 05:22 PM
The Chosen :cool: But will play them all ofc :p

06-13-2016, 06:08 PM
Im gonna play as all of them at one point i guess XD. Depends on my mood sometimes you just have samurai days.

06-13-2016, 07:41 PM
64% Warborn so far

06-13-2016, 08:35 PM
I really donīt know.I think I will love to play with every Class.
Samurai are awesome, I did Iaido and Aikido and other Japanese martial arts, so I am looking forward to this Class.
Knights are awsome, too. I am a Knight fan since childhood, been on many Castles ect. Love the "modern" historical fighting art with double handed swords and stuff like this. Vikings are a under-represented Class in Videogames. If they are done right I will split skulls left and right with them. Hope they have a berserk ability!

Iīm having a real hard time to decide which is my favourite one. Think it will come down to the weapons. Canīt wait to try the Naginata or the Mace!

06-13-2016, 08:45 PM
undecided between the Knights and the Vikings.

06-14-2016, 12:12 AM
The press conference just finished so hopefully we'll see a substantial rise in forumers. So far the vikings are still ahead, but the knights and samurai are catching up.

06-14-2016, 12:34 AM
Ive been hyped to play the Vikings since last year, and today's reveal only strengthened my want to play them.

06-14-2016, 07:47 AM
From day one

06-14-2016, 08:29 AM
Definitely want to play all three, but gotta start a Viking.

06-14-2016, 09:41 AM
In campania I certainly played all classes but in multiplayer i will be playing the knight.

06-14-2016, 09:56 AM
I'm not sure, but I think 60% knight

06-14-2016, 10:22 AM
The Vikings are at 50% while the other factions are still playing catch up. xD

06-14-2016, 12:46 PM
Well... raiding some coast, killing and burning coastal villages, huge scary weapons and fierce giant warriors-which I am one myslef :D!
That's like my dream!
I'd go for vikings!
hail Odin!:D

The Chosen's "Oni" definitely feels RIGHT for me!
Though I am very interested in seeing the other Warborn heroes. I feel like the Raider was a bit too similar to the Warden gameplay wise.

06-14-2016, 03:43 PM
Gonna try all of them, but I'm more than likely going to play the Knights. Really want to see some sword and shield gameplay.

I am really hyped about the viking sword and shield gameplay (it can be seen in the campaign gameplay around the 6:20 min in the ubisoft youtube channel).

06-14-2016, 06:36 PM
I have a samurai tattoo, so I'll be playing as the samurai for sure. :cool:

The vikings are actually the least interesting to me.

06-14-2016, 06:41 PM
From day one

This! :cool:

06-15-2016, 12:43 PM
Samuraï <3

06-15-2016, 02:06 PM
I'll be going with Samurai from day one, but I'll probably try all of them at some point.

06-15-2016, 04:24 PM
With a long English heritage that dates back as far as the 11 century records I've archived I'd have to go with the knights on this. I feel otherwise I would be turning my back on my people ;)

It's not. Maybe the halberd guy from the knight campaign will be similar, but I doubt it.

06-16-2016, 04:27 AM
Going knight all the way, there is no way I can't. English/German heritage so... I have no choice, but I will play all of them.

06-16-2016, 10:34 AM
i'm French but i have german and italian ancestors, i'll be Knight all the way too !
My blood is boiling for more of this game ! i just can't wait to face you guys !

I am Warborn all the way. Partly, because I am dutch and the saxons were not too different from the Danes and Norsemen, Plus+ I can't forget that it were knights who destroyed paganism with a sword instead of a bible.

06-16-2016, 03:20 PM
It's actually a really hard choice, they are all awesome and I'll likely play the whole campaign to get a feel for each of them before I go online but I'm leaning towards samurai.

06-16-2016, 05:25 PM
I'm wondering how the mechanics will work though. Will samurai be fast quick strikes? Knight be medium speed with medium strikes? Vikings will be slow speed heavy strikes? Just from the looks of the heroes I could imagine it would be like this as the Raider is a huge mass of man compared to the lean quick Samurai leader (forgive me as I cannot recall his official title)

06-17-2016, 01:48 AM
(But I will play all of them, how better to learn thier weaknesses)

06-17-2016, 07:41 PM
Samurai :)

I've always admired the styling of their armour.

06-17-2016, 09:12 PM
the knight all the way, wish we had ninjas.

06-17-2016, 09:24 PM
I'd like to see more warriors from different nations be added in a DLC. Maybe like the spartans or hoplites along those lines. might be silly to add the, but hey it's a fantasy war style game after all.

06-17-2016, 09:25 PM
Knights are catching up, but we're still short 49 votes of passing the vikings. Samurai are lagging behind Knights just a little bit at 20%.

06-17-2016, 09:26 PM
I wanted to wait and see all factions before I made a decision. I'm sure I'll play all of them but if I could only chose one...I. AM. VIKING!!!

06-17-2016, 09:31 PM
The only thing i could ever be is a Knight!

06-18-2016, 05:45 PM
I'm a Swede, so I gotta represent. #TeamVikings
But I'll be playing all of them, obviously. Just, more vikings. ;D

06-18-2016, 06:53 PM
I'm not fighting to the weak..
I'm not fighting to master the art of killing..

I don't need ā complete steel armour to go into the battle!
I don't need the best steel sword to slice my ennemies into pieces!

I need, my Axe, my brothers, a War Cry for the great Odin, and the best Ale!
