So for a while now I've seen various reports where people have to travel all over europe just to do a simple quest. This is caused by the simple fact that the Roman Empire is huge.
In the next patch we will see a huge change in this. The Roman Empire will be divided into 5 factions.
1. Roman Empire (Italy)
2. Province of Gaul and Brittania (France/England)
3. Province of Greece and Dacia (Greece, jugoslavia, romania, hungary / all that lies to the east of Italy and West of Turkey)
4. Province of Egypt and Turkey (Turkey, Israel, Egypt)
5. Province of Spain and Africa (Spain, North-Africa, Cyrene)
The differents with troops have yet to be seen. And so far will be pretty much the same. I might just include some new cohorts with new shields for each faction to have atleast some difference but Im a bit tight when it comes to equipment so I'll have to see.
This should make it much easier to do quests in the Empire, and each province can focus on its own bit of the Empire.
I hope that this will be a good improvement, if you have anything to add to this please do so! Also these names are just randomly made up ("province of Gaul and Brittania") because I suck at making up stuff. So if you have better names for these then go ahead!
