Hi I'm new here. I just came from another game message board and there were a lot of people saying that Jerusalem is devoid of any Arabic speakers/people. Please, can any of the developers confirm this?

And if yes, why did you do so? Jerusalem was a teeming metropolis of people of all ethnicities, why omit Arabs in it? That wouldn't be right.

Thank you for your patience.

Your friends are wrong. There are absolutely Arabic speakers/NPC's in Jerusalem (and Damascus and etc.).

Ok thank you man. I knew there would be in Damascus, but there should be in all the cities as well.

Again thanks for the reply http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

jade raymond said jerusalem was taken by the crusaders, so there are a lot of non-arabic people, and maybe a 10% of arabics. in acre there is a mix, and damascus is 100% arabic (the crusaders couldn't take it in the third crusade)

No, Jerusalem is controlled by Muslims, so is Damascus, Acre is controlled by the crusaders

So your 10% of arabic people is totally off

It was taken by the crusaders, but it was recaptured by Saladin in 1187.

It has already been stated by Patrice that in order not to offend every religion out there, they had to detract away from historical accuracy on some parts.

They didn't want one ethnic group to feel that they were being targetted. I know it sounds silly but some people pick at things, even a video game.

How does this have anything to do with this thread? What do you mean with that?

Some people, mainly extreme right wing Neo Nazis, think that if they shout loud enought that the Holocaust never hapened it'll become fact.
In spite of all the evidence to the contrary, hell the Nazi "Death Camps" are still there, preserved as a memorial to the 12 million who died during the "Thousand Year Reich".

So you're telling me you just took those numbers out of your hat?:P

Why would Acre have 90% of Europeans..?

You kind of start off after the kingdom of heaven. Saladin took Jerusalem and king henry came and took acre a little bit after.
