Adding a Slavic faction would not be the best choice. They were not raided by the vikings, but Rus. It would also be difficult to make a good baltic faction since we already have Goidil. Making realistic clothes and equipment would be almost the same as Goidil since both were a poor faction that were raided.
O shit, meant the slavic fation WHAT!?!?!?!?!
The Baltic faction would have been good, but I think that should wait too beacuse we got Goidil in the last patch.
No, no, no, no. Slavs were COMPLETELY different from Goidil, and not poor. They had LOTS of contacts with Norsemen and Ottonic empire (of course if we consider western Slavs), even more than with Kievan Rus. The reason western Slavs wouldn't be the best choice is that they would estethically be a buffer between east and west (which they were) basically not adding new equipment, but mixing the existing one (well, I still think we could make them both historically accurate AND distinct, but maybe Balts are a better choice).
Also - for those who are ranting about Goidil being just released - it's just the discussion, noone expects the topic factions to be added immediately
