Well? I guessed that they could be the new Native Explorers, but would ES really name the expansion pack based on the Native Explorer?
ES named the expansion of AoM almost completely describing what the expansion was about.

Lol... never saw that movie.


Anyway, I think the "War Chiefs" title is just describing the native powers coming to AOE3. However, it could have something to do with the campaign or something much simpler, like the native explorer units as you suggested.

Will the Natives have explorers?
A – they have the mighty warchief!
they are the native equivalent to explorers in some ways, but they remain highly useful throughout the game. When we run playtests, the players keep close tabs on exactly where their warchief is at all times. When’s the last time you saw someone do that with an explorer?

--------------------------------------

Es sandy sais here that we will have some sort of warchief unit!

You can read it on the "Ask sandy V" Thread on Agecommunity.com!


so.. the "war-chief" is infact a Unit..Insted of an explorer, when you think about it, it would be weird if the Natives had "explorers"

The War chiefs...Lol the war chiefs reminds me of Sioux.

They were just nomandic tribes all togheter by a war chief.

But i think the name means this: the Europeans may have come to the New World, but the native americans will protect it at all costs.

The title the war chiefs, means power, power that the native civs will get.

The prez is called "commander and chief"

So I believe the term "war chiefs" has a wider inclusion.

That's Commander in Chief...and perhaps the title has something to do with the campaign?

Here's another "Ask Sandy" bit of info on the War Chiefs:

Quote:

10) Sandy, could ES make units like drummers to boost the morale of the armies when they are near them, like in AOM, when Arkantos does his spear thing?
A – yes of course we could. But we’d rather have this kind of boost reserved for more militarily effective units like warchiefs.

Sounds kinda cool.

Sounds interesting.
