No chance we are getting another greek season. Maybe a kind of crossover with some minis, but not a full KS.

If they keep the system (not sure if this is the word), i think we will have Norse, since they have plenty of gods, monsters, and probably troops. They also have a good bunch of heroes (plenty of mythologies have a lack of these...)

I would like some oriental or prehispanic mythology, tho.

I would prefer to see the entire greek pantheon fleshed out before moving on.

I'm not that interested in adding a whole new mythology.

I voted for a new mythology. I'd like to see Norse gods with the potential for a cross-over to Blood Rage and/or Conan again.

Norse seems like the best choice yes, because it has all the stuff that is needed for this formula: Gods, Heroes, monsters and troops. Also plenty of female heroes in the form of the valkyries, and female gods and monsters too.

It's a bit overplayed perhaps, but considering how deep they go into greek mythology I am certain that they can offer a great mix of the familiar and less familiar sights of norse mythology.

What I WOULD suggest them to do for the next seasons of mythic battles is to give each season's figurines a different base color. To give them a sense of unity. Might also be good for balance sake to not allow a mixed team consisting of norse and greek units. Can fight each other but not with each other.

Otherwise when making the next season, they would have to consider if the synergies with new units won't get too overpowered with past season's units too. Especially if they want to make even more than two seasons it might get very troublesome.

in the end they will probably go with something well known like the norse theme, even if it us overused or just because of it.

if you look at this ks, aside from game mechanics it thrives on a theme where people recognize characters by name and iconic visuals. Even all the sometimes heated debates about specific chars and their artistic representation are in the end a positive sign that people have an own vision of things and the passion to argue for it ( aside from being the internet where arguing is the bread and butter of discourse )

So while picking a less used but interesting theme will support the learning experience (of a fictional reboot of a myth ...) it will probably never gain the forward momentum of people waiting for or demanding specific theme-driven characters. If you look at the number of units used in this ks, finding a comparable number of well known units in the other themes that came up so far (Egypt, Babylonian, Celtic, ...) will be hard.

Indeed, it might cause the interest to fade after the first expansion already if you presume they aim for the same amount of content as for this one.

With norse mythology they have plenty to offer, enough to match this game in content.

Giants, dwarves, valkyries, trolls, wolves, the kraken, a wide phanteon of gods that people are very familiar with, vikings, longboats..

Actually, Aztec/Mayan would be an interesting change of pace...very colorful and boards would look incredible.
