I think Dynasty warriors should take a page from Empires total wars book and allow to construct your empire. Have a map that actually looked like China instead of a flat rainbow. You should get armies lead by your officer to actually move across the map with their speed affected by force strength, transport and terrain(mountain slow road fast etc.) Be able to research technology. Keep cards their very unique. Prepare tactics before battle (more in depth). Councils should be more advanced and quick versions for online play.
