    CB has confirmed that there will be new sectorials. Which ones where they again, I forgot?

    I only remember Kazaks, MRRF, Shavasti, Tunguska, some Navy Seals PanOs, and maybe Vedic Aleph, but not so sure about that.

    what about Haqislam, YuJing and Tohaa? What sectorials are they getting if any? I think Tohaa will remain sectorialless.

    Is it fair that some factions get more sectorials than others? I think there is already an abundance of PanO sectorials.

    Forget about 2 sectorials for the same army (so no Cossacks and MRRF, for example)

    Imo, well get (sorted by probability):

    Tunguska
    Ramah
    Invincible Army
    Cossacks
    Vedic or Triumvirate

    Considering ITS presence, I doubt Vedic or Trimvirate will be there, I'd bet instead for Shasvastii...

    Then again, we might get a Vedic Vs Shasvastii "Advanced box"...

    It's a vicious circle, you can't expect many people to play Tohaa if they never get new stuff and they never get stuff cause no one plays them...

    In that regard, you could say the same about Aleph generic, yet it's not that way...

    I think Tohaa are even more different than CA, and has close to zero sinergy with other factions, meaning there is "lures" to draw players there for a second faction, newbies see themselves quite alone when coming to teachings...

    Probably "bringing them into line" (giving them hacking, removing the frog's as they are now, things like that) would help things along.

    What are Ramah and Triumphirate? Varuna is the Navy Seals PanOs, right?
    What sectorial would there be for Haqislam? the Sultan's bodyguard or something, allowing the awesome scorpitron into a sectorial?

    Most likely it'll be:

    Varuna
    Invincible Army
    Ramah
    Tunguska
    OSS

    Plus SEF and MRRF rebalancing (they're not new sectorials as such).

    I think Bostria mentioned that Tohaa will get some love later, as they don't have the resources to do everything at the same time.

    nah, they have to do the Kazak sectorial. cb has even put it on some blisters already. It will exist rather sooner than later.

    I think Varuna, Invincible Army, Tunguska, Vedic/OSS, and Shasvastii (if they count it as new) or Ramah/Kazak/possibly Tohaa (if not). Varuna, IA and Tunguska are almost definite.

    They’ve put out new models for most/all of them recently, it doesn’t mean that much.

    Why does everyone think Varuna is the next Pan-O sectorial? Svalarheima is more likely to be next IMO.

    Because we’ve been told that Varuna is next.

    I was under the impression that context was next after svalarheima, given that they were being essentially beta tested with the closed battle lists.

    Nope, Varuna is the next sectorial we’re getting for PanO. We’ve even been told some unit names, the ‘Echo Bravo’, we’re getting an Orc Character, and there will be Varuna specific Orc loadouts too iirc.

    I think they do realize, that people will go rabid if there won't be a proper Shasvastii and French rebalance. So I'm betting those two are in, just not counting as "new sectorials".

    Personally I could live with not getting Varuna in exchange for balancing a few problematic units and loadouts (Teutons, Bolts, some characters, etc), and those armies with less than three sectorials getting some love.

    No one? Really?? Did you get any data on tohaa players percentage?? Could be quite interesting.

    From what I remember of the Q and A at the end of the stream, Tohaa stuff isn't on the cards yet, rebalancing existing sectorials and the smaller book with NA2 lists in doesn't count towards the 5 new sectorials. As for Svalarhiema Vs Varuna , you could look at the closed lists as something coming soon,or as a stop gap for something that's a bit further away...

    If Tohaa is even farther away than Vedic in the testing stage, and Shasvastii is not counted as "new sectorial" then... we would still not get Paradiso N3 this year, unless they decide to publish it without Tohaa???

    Have you checked the photos from the Las Vegas presentation? Those are the numbers of people playing those factions on ITS reported games (that means, tournaments, leagues and one shots).
