I'll try to summarize all the posts about some missing factions in BF1, who played a big role in WW1, so if I forgot any, don't rost me please
There has been big discussions about certain factions in several threads with pros and cons , which is a good thing IMO and I appreciate this, because it shows that many people care about some historical facts. And this isn't nationalism (at least for me), people simply want to play with their country and enjoy a game. Me as a Serb would like to play with Serb faction of course, the only time where I played with as a Serb was in GTA 4 with Niko Bellić lol
jokes a side...
There are people who don't care at all what factions they're playing and they're saying that "it's just a game". Yes, it is "just" a game (and not everything will be 100% historical accurate), but it's not any game, which is fictional like BF4, where you can add any faction you want. If a game is based on WW1 theme, them the Game needs to honor the most important factions that participated in The Great War and not exclude them!
My suggestion to DICE is, to include ALL those factions in the upcoming 4-5 DLC, and by this you'll please many people and make BF1 more authentic.
Before we get offended again and told that there can't be many factions and so on, I'll remind everyone how much content BF4 got after the vanilla version, with new maps, faction based vehicles, weapons and some other stuff, which in BF1 isn't needed, because vehicles & weapons are not typical faction based. That means "only" faction based uniforms and voiceovers needs to be done, and maps will be done either way. Maybe, and only maybe there could be added 4-5 weapons. And I'm sure that the Current Gen is capable to include those missing factions!
I'll not mention the pros again, because in many comments people have been giving pretty good arguments, so I'll post links to the faction based threads and links to the Wikipedia page about the demanded factions so everybody can see their importance in WW1.
