I gotta say, the things that I'm most looking forward to when it comes to By Blood Alone, is the Italian focus tree and the division commander system. The air plane customization feature really just seems like more game mechanics to tape onto the back of a box. The Ethiopian tree, despite seeming fun, will mean I will have to fight in Africa, which is actual hell, and the fact that they might not add anymore African states aside from the ones in Ethiopia means we won't be able to create good looking colonial borders (plus that whole Democratic nations releasing dumb countries seems to not have been fixed). The Swiss tree sorta seems like the Turkish tree, it's pretty much there for the nice three despite them having nearly nothing to do with the war. The Italian Tree has desperately needing the attention, the fact that it's impossible to get anything without being fascist has been a big downside, Italy definitely seemed shoehorned in at the last moment of the game's release. The Division command system is probably the best thing that will come from this, it seems to be a more realistic depiction of what would happen, realistically, one commander wouldn't be able to command 24000 men, as those men would be spread out everywhere.
