I'm not gonna read that
I think they could have done something neat with the Ottomans and the Battle of Sarikamish. Around 25'000 Ottomans frozen to death because they weren't ready for winter warfare in the mountains. Could have made for a very interesting setting and very interesting story especially since Armenians would be scapegoated and thus be used as an excuse to genocide them.No mention of how it claims to represent the moral grayness of WW1 but you exclusively play as the Allies and slaughter Germans, Austrians and Turks by the hundreds?
On the other hand even in 2016 all it would take is one dangerhair seeing a player character wearing a Stalhelm to start a clusterfuck about the game glorifying "Nazis".
So maybe they just being safe.
