Lately, in a couple of videos, I have noticed that the Ottomans and the Byzantines do not like each other.

Ottoman are rather neutral and act like normal guards. Whereas the Byzantines are *******s/Templars and will attack you on site.

Putting the two factions together creates a small battle in the streets.

I doubt you'd be able to do, but it would be cool to get lots of Ottoman Guards to follow you, and then run into a bunch of Byzantines and watch a battle.

This also opens up gameplay elements. We can now create mass distractions by causing distractions between the two factions and making them engage.

You can do this.

You can also start riots by bribing hearalds, the people will then rise against the janissaries and ottomans and fight them with pitchforks, etc.

I thought that was the effect of the Pyrite Bomb?

Sends a shower of fake coins down so that everyone around gets aggressive over the money.

Is a Byzantine a Christian? Is an Ottoman a Muslim? If a Byzantine is a Christian then why did the Catholics kill so many of them in the 3rd crusade? I thought they where friends. Is a Templar Christian? Is an Ismaili Nizari Muslim? What is Islam? What is Christianity? See what I did there?

No, that just has teh effect of throwing coins bt just that you don't lose any currency, just fake currency.

You could also cause fights between the City Guards and the Borgia Guards/Medici guards in AC2.

- Ottomans vs Byzantines
- Byzantines are the remnants of those who were ruling Constantinople until the Ottomans invaded and took over.
- Byzantines are now a secret society and are heavily influenced by the Templars, so they are the Templar faction in Constantinople.
- Ottomans are like the regular guards in past AC games. They act as the police and they will ignore you unless you kill, pick pocket, etc in front of them.
- Byzantine soldiers are like the Templar Knights in AC1 where they will fight you no matter what if you are around them

It's like comparing rectangles and squares. All squares are rectangles, not all rectangles are squares.

They're different "kinds" of Christians. Catholics didn't like Protestants either.

I think he knows.

He knows a lot about the History of Christianity, and he knows about things like the Byzantine Church in Constantinople not being completely accepted by the Papacy.
