Thoughts on the Viking Forefathers Culture Pack:

I am excited to play as the Jutes, if only for the Huscarls. So I am at a loss as to what faction to play first: Western Roman Empire, Eastern Roman Empire, the Saxons, or the Jutes. Not a bad problem to have though.

One thing I noticed is that the unit rosters are very robust. A problem Rome 2 had was that many non-major factions felt incomplete. From a gameplay standpoint, many lacked late-game, top-tier units that could compete alongside major empires. It is my hope that all factions in Total War: Attila are competitive and capable of winning.
