    We acknowledge that it's only British soldiers getting killed in the trailers, which is pretty hard to deny; but unlike you, we also acknowledge that trailers are not the final game, and we will only draw our judgment on that. They have said numerous times, even publicly addressing the question at least three times at E3, that there will be Templars at both sides of the war, and we have no reason to believe differently besides not wanting to believe it, which is quite childish. And even if in the final product there are indeed only Templars on the British side, I doubt many of us would give a ****.

    Yes you are right, Connor will only ever kill British people, that is because EVERYONE WAS BRITISH BACK THEN! The redcoats and colonials! There was no America until after the revolution finished! And when that's happened there will only be American guards (colonials) in the cities because the redcoats will have packed up and gone back to merry ol' England, where half the population live in terrible poverty.

Then again, we have roughly four-and-a-half months for Ubisoft to give us some screenshots of Conner killing aforementioned Patriot Rebels. I think the true reason for why they haven't revealed who the 'American' Templars are is because us Americans would have aneurisms depending on which Founding Father and/or beloved Revolutionary Hero turns out to be a Templar.
    Exactly, the Ubisoft marketing team would rather ialienate the British market than the American market who is their target demographic. Imagine if Ubisoft released a trailer of Connor chasing down George Washington, I can just imagine the internet outrage of "WTH Ubisoft are you anti-American?!!!!"

    You don't understand the argument if it helps you to understand better then I am specifically referring to the soldiers of the British Army.

    I won't be buying the game. There is nothing wrong with being proud of Britain and there is nothing wrong with voicing my concern for a much loved series.
