Either the Spartan or a Middle Eastern Warrior. They do have to make them fit into the world though, like they did with the Centurion. Otherwise they'll look really out of place.

Pirate....?

Technically speaking....the Pirates existed BEFORE the Samurai, so they wouldn't be out of place......

Also, a map with pirate ships and a port would be pretty sweet....

LOL...yeah it's true...The Samurai were around up until AFTER the Civil War in the United States (1840's)......the Pirates were gone long before that...

A quick google search would show that Samurai have been around Asia for way over 1000 years. Pirates would be a bit too modern, imo.

Pirates: The era of piracy in the Caribbean began in the 1500s and died out in the 1830s after the navies of the nations of Western Europe and North America with colonies in the Caribbean began combating pirates.

Samurai: 1185-1868

The Samurai we see in game (based upon their armor) are the much later version of the Samurai.

But honestly, let's not get caught up in the details......just vote away =P

No monk voters?

I would actually love to see a martial artist in this game, who uses hand to hand and parries/reversals.

Er... pirates have existed throughout the ages, even currently.

Pirates don't necessarily have to be the 17~18th century Caribbean buccaneers.

Just to clear things up.

There were soldiers and wars in Japan before the samurai came. And they also used shields. Samurai came quite late.

Immersion/history wise, Middle Eastern warriors would fit the profile best. Since the Knights give of a bit of the "Crusaders" vibe, a Seljuk/Ottoman sipahi or mamluke would fit in great.

I'd like to see Middle-Eastern or maybe even Indian warriors.

Lots of historical badassery that's been hugely underrepresented in various mediums.

We have a ninja, we need a pirate to settle a debate as old if not older than the internet.

It'd be also very cool to see warriors in Far Eastern cavalry armor -- before the influx of the Manchurian-Qing style became the standard.

Damn I'm the only one that wants a bald and orange dress wearing monk. Tho I think he should use a Bo staff.

The Spartan too....I wanna yell "This is Sparta" when I kick you off a cliff.

Good call. It's not as widely known as some of the other regions, but still, Indian and Southeastern Asian styles look pretty cool too.

Thailand's King Naresuan's armor looks so bad-arse.

No, I want the monk most of all...especially if he is hand to hand! I just messed up my vote lol.

Too bad Ubi already has all the DLC most likely planned, so probably none of these or maybe only one would make it into the game.

Would be cool if they built their DLC around community polls like this!

Also intersting and exotic, would be the meso-American style.

I hope the game gets more players, but this will only happen with servers. They won't really invest in new characters after the 6 they promised if the game is dying at this rate.

Eh? Pirates existed in the gunpowder age... 1700/1800's..... Samurai were all but gone by then.



Technically speaking....the Pirates existed BEFORE the Samurai, so they wouldn't be out of place......

Also, a map with pirate ships and a port would be pretty sweet....

Since we haven't seen the entire world map map any of these choices would be a possibility. Spartans to the west? Middle Easter Warriors to the south? Pirates in the east? Who knows? All of them would make fun additions to the game, though.

I think instead of having a Chinese kung fu monk in the game, I think a Ming warrior would fit the whole atmosphere better. It would be a good excuse for the Samurai faction to finally have a character with more metal armor as well that doesn't look overly ridiculous.

For the Vikings, I think a thick scale mail two handed maul wielding character would fit well. Unfortunately the vikings are limited to what they have access to in terms of diverse weaponry. The class should be called Pulverizer or something non-cheesy.

And for the best for last, I think the knights should finally get a proper quick attacking class that isn't a Peacekeeper or a Warden. Since we have yet to see how the Centurion works, I wouldn't mind either seeing a thick hard leather gambeson or light plate armored Man At Arms with a quarterstaff. I think a quick attacker/disabler would be an interesting class to the knight roster.

A chinese Xia (pugilist from wu xia world) would be good. double edge sword, fast, agile, lots of counters, can palm strike after GB etc. want dual wield? no problemo. can even turn double edge sword into saber. outfits and masks? only limit is your imagination. A hard punishing character but fragile.
