SirKhan, this is a discussion, not an argument - get off your hobby horse and act like a grownup. Or not - it's your choice.
It's clear you like Persia and want Persia to be in Dominations - that's great. I don't have a problem with you or Persia or any other country - your comments about media brainwashing notwithstanding. Yes, Persia was a great empire and gave the world many great things but they were a warring empire - if they had projected some of their resources towards the betterment of mankind ..... well, it's anyone's guess where they could've been by now.
Anyway, your comment about people hating Persia was ridiculous. There are hundreds of countries that would be worthwhile additions to the game, dozens of empires that have come and gone or evolved into something else that would be worthwhile additions to this game.
Should Nexon include them all? Can Nexon even possibly include them all? Does it mean that Nexon hates all the ones it doesn't have in the game????
Just take a step back, go outside, feel the sun on your face, and then come back and play the game with an open mind ..... or continue with this pointless discussion - it's your choice. We know you like Persia - we get it. I doubt people are stupid enough to believe everything they see in the media and I doubt people ''hate'' Persia just because you have an issue with the game.
Calm down buddy, I was just clarifying my idea about your idea, as much as we understand each others opinions, without disrespecting, we are cool,
for a second I thought you may try to say Persia is not a worthy option to be added and you are looking down to it!
otherwise I completely aware of the all other missing nations, I was trying to introduce it as it could be added, if you could act like a grownup and when you are not agree with some thing just be quite, there wouldn't be any discussion or argument or whatever you like to name it!
I suggest you to read my Post then come here and make a comment! here is the link
Are you all possibly forgetting something quite fundamental? All the ancient civilisations you propose are fine - any African, Persian, Polynesian, Middle Eastern, whatever, but they would have to be a global ''power'' to progress to the Industrial, Global & Space Ages in this game.
For example, did the Zulus feature prominently in the European theatre in WW2? Did Egypt or Turkey or Somalia land on the Normandy beaches? Do these nations have nuclear arms?? I'm not condemning these nations or talking them down at all but I'm looking at it from a Dominations perspective. (FYI, I was born in Africa so I'm not speaking with any kind of bigotry .....)
The nations have to have ''somewhere'' to go in this game after the Gunpowder or Enlightenment ages - simply suggesting that players change nations when the ''historical relevance'' stops is not very practical. For that reason America or Russia would have to be the next logical additions.
Actually, I don't have a problem with Persia or India as new civilisations but I think the history in this region & the political/religious turmoil there at the moment might be a little too sensitive for the devs to include them - which is a pity cos I think the Iron/Classical/Medieval, etc, ages would have some really cool looking buildings.
But I have to wonder what an Iranian tank would look like if it wasn't for the British, Russians & Nth Koreans .....
You dont think Greece & Italy should be included but the tiny nation of Mali, who had the richest man in the world, should be? A sultan who carried his wealth with him wherever he went & sent 100 ships with men & gold to find the Atlantic ocean... hmmm, you've convinced me - that is just the criteria for a ''great'' nation!!
greece is already in the game i didnt say it shouldnt be inlcluded i just said by your logic it wouldn't have been in the game and the ships were sent to not find the ocean but the americas even though now evidence has been found of them arriving yet and mali has more history than that i was just stating one thing.
Yes we know who the superpowers are and we all have our own personal favourites whether they should be in this game or not. Nexon had a great idea and naturally had to come up with a list of nations with the widest appeal to get the ball rolling. I doubt Nexon has any hidden agenda when it comes to which nation to include or not include.
Personally I'd like to see the Space Age change to include alien races. Instead of nations on Earth fighting each other we could have Earth vs Klingons vs Romulans vs The Dominion vs Cardassians vs Tholians vs The Borg ......
There are so many nations DomiNations can add, the only problem is if they have a nice unique unit, obvious nation power, and exists from Iron to Space Age.
Ignoring the problems, the nations could be: Turkish, Indians, Aztecs, Incas, Russians, Egyptians, Zulus, Maoris, Vikings(Scandinavians), Mongols,and of course much more.
