We do have more diverse characters in game since this was originally posted, and are working on introducing more. Our art pipeline is done quite a bit in advance, which can mean things take a while to release in game.

We have the kingdom of Shentang which is predominantly characters from asian descent, and several middle Eastern characters as well. We have some characters with african american features, and plan to introduce more in the future. The playable avatar also has selectable skin tones. Of course, there is room for us to do better, so we do have more troops planned.

One of my favourite troops is also one of our most recent, Spring Emissary!

I replied to bug reports yesterday, and today have already replied in a thread helping someone get an account recovery by speeding up their ticket inquiry.

I cannot fix bugs, I can only report them and advocate for the needs of the community, which I have already been doing all morning whilst chasing up the status of our bug fixes with the team. I have been making an effort to spend more time on the forums during a period where my work responsibilities have increased and I am needed elsewhere, and I felt that this was something I wanted to discuss.

I mean, I could bring up Prince of Anu if you’d really like. :stuck_out_tongue:

Just here to laugh at the Mistralus comment because I didn’t expect it and it made me smile for no reason this morning.

I think aiming for a racially diverse game is a good thing. We live in a racially diverse world, so I see no harm in that being represented in our games either. The fact that so many cultures co-exist in reality is pretty cool.
