I wonder what CA will do for the famous "Easter Egg" that they did for RTW and M2TW. I'm hoping that they do something on Sharpe or Hornblower.

What do you think?

General Rawlinson- This is most unsatisfactory. Where are the Sherwood Foresters? Where are the East Lancashires on the right?

Brigadier-General Oxley- They are lying out in No Man's Land, sir. And most of them will never stand again.

I think we'll have to wait for the release to find out about Easter Eggs in ETW.

Yes, don't count your eggs before they're laid. We can have the Easter Egg Hunt once it is released (Fairly close to Easter, ironically).

RTW had the Yubsteb elephants, sons of G'nitek'ram (The God of Shiny Things That Mortals Do Not Need But Desire Anyway - for some reason I can always remember this!). G'nitek'am is Marketing backwards. Yubsteb is Bestbuy backwards.

M2TW, I don't know, except there is something about football.

And in RTW there is "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" as a diplomatic message for the Egyptians.

and in BI there is a hunnic temple named to a famous horse.

Yep, it's true, having no sig is boring. But so is this one. Which makes my point... relatively pointless.

I wouldn't really call the football comment an easter egg. Typically, you have to look for easter eggs. The comment, on the other hand, inevitably pops up whatever you do.

So is the Marketing thing. Doesn't stop it being an Easter Egg. Kor's reasoning is much better.

At some point you get a message that football has been banned in London. That should prevent the sport of getting fanatical followers.
Or something like that. Does anyone have a screenshot of it?
And is it possible to find these historical messages somewhere among the files?

"The satisfaction in this game lies in to see 300 heavy armoured horsemen ride chock in an easy snowfall, while fire arrows criss-crosses the evening sky" - Swedish historian and permanent secretary of The Swedish Academy Peter Englund on Medieval 2: Total War (translated by Thrashmad)

"A game that contains both Carl Linnaeus and five different types of artillery projectiles are indisputable exceedingly detailed." - Peter Englund on Empire: Total War (translated by Thrashmad)

It was an ironic statement, about the fanatical followers, akin to the statement made about the rudder, and what it'll mean for warfare, IIRC. Easter eggs reference some kind of pop culture, methinks.

Maybe we'll get Rick Rolled when we win the Grand Campaign.

It is not enough that I succeed, but my enemies must fail.

I came, I saw, and was crushed.

Maybe we should make a petition and then CA will come and hopefully use some of these ideas.

Like the naming of ships (or the persecution of Daelon) and various other things.

General Rawlinson- This is most unsatisfactory. Where are the Sherwood Foresters? Where are the East Lancashires on the right?

Brigadier-General Oxley- They are lying out in No Man's Land, sir. And most of them will never stand again.
