Yeah, no. I know you want to be funny with your post, but it's not.

Anyone with a passing knowledge of the Three Kingdoms knows it's a classic for a reason.

And if you had read it, it's not really a piece that supports the current system. After all, the initial lines are:

"The Empire, long divided, must unite; long united, must divide. Thus it has ever been." - Translation by Moss Roberts

The themes of the story, especially the corruption of the Han dynasty, and how morally upright people should oppose it, are not really in sync with the current political party line. And I'm not going to compare Winnie the Pooh to Dong Zhuo, I will not.

Please tell me if we have a Commonwealth DD or CA line or unique Commander or special commander or whatever there called.

Have we got a Commonwealth port, have we had commonwealth dockyard, how many " festivals and new years do they get a year " then tell me how many Commonwealth ones we have had.

There sucking up alright it may not be open and in your face but they are.

 So please feel free to show me where any of the above commonwealth things I have mentioned are and Ill go buy them.

regards

While you are barking up the wrong tree, I can tell you why we are not seeing more Commonwealth content. You are not going to like it.

WG in their stupidity tried doing commonwealth stuff in India, it backfired, as even with the lower prices people weren't buying. We got a very middling premium out of it, Mysore. INS Delhi died on the drawing board.

Then there was the Yukon. That was a tragedy.

On the flip side, you have the Myth and Legend stuff for Asia. It's premium only and has wide appeal. In fact things like Journey to the West are classics across Asia. It offends no one, as it's mostly fantasy stuff or so ancient you can't make it political.

Money talks, everyone else walks.

So your telling my both Vampires are part of a Tech tree line, sorry I must have walked through a door and into a alternative universe if you consider that to be a full line.

Competitive and historical ships value more than a branch of copy-paste make-believe (primarily the cruiser branch), at least for me.

And for this particular case of downvoting. I understand the frustration over lack of Commonwealth contents, yet I feel offended over the disparagement of Pan-Asian contents and players and the notion of advancing Commonwealth at the cost of Pan-Asia.

Well, we need to remember that we are all peers. We can disagree on things, even strongly, but arguments should remain strictly on point and subject. 

Agreed.

We are also trying to make sure that we keep this topic on the subject of "shooty video game boats" and the history that they are based on, rather than "current events" which with enough time will become history. 

Back to @tm63au - since I grew up in Edmonton in the 80's I think that the Gretzky unique commander skill should be to buff his TEAMS shooting (maybe a MBRB that increases team reload speed by 20% while active?). He played in the time where an assist was "passed the puck to the guy who scored the goal less than a second later" and IIRC was the first high scoring NHL player to have more assists than goals. 

Maybe the Russell Crowe skill should be to reduce the secondary range of ships he is engaging, forcing a knife fight. 

Definitely some potentially interesting mechanics here!

then you should have little problem guessing..

cao cao on the left

Nah, they look too similar.  Much different from the games. ROTK 1-4.  I would have said CAO CAO was the middle one. the one on the right and left don't look like anybody.

I'd say the one on the right was Sun Quan but he's wearing a green cape.. and he was always a bit of a fatty so don't really match.

turns out, after checking, you're right!

cao cao in middle, flanked by sunquan in yellow and liubei on the right.

That was entirely WGs fault though and how they treated Mouse and Chob was the real tragedy. They lost massive points with the community there with how badly they handled the Yukon situation. Its one of the great WG debacles alongside the PR dockyard, Graf Zeppelin release, and the CV Rework+sub release for a good reason.
