Yet again (at least on initial release) we're limited to the clans we can play, and it's even less than in VTMB1. In that case, I understand that it had to do with copyright, but in this case, isn't that reason out the window?

This had nothing to do with copyright. Bloodlines 1 is a story about a Camarilla vampire that might have worked a bit for the Anarchs in a situation where both were forced to tolerate each other anyway! To add special clans the main story would have needed a lot of changes, and all mods doing this, like TFN, ATM and even the CQM when you play as a Sabbat, take the easy road and make very little changes. The CQM does it best with the new ending, but even there Diablerie should be game over in a Camarilla/Anarch city!

So why can't we have all the Clans? Why can't we have Bloodlines? Why can't I play as a Tzimisce? Or a Baali? Or a Daughter of Cacophony? Or a Giovanni? What's stopping them from going all the way, here?

See above. You can use the same main story line for common Camarilla clans, everything else would need more work and time which they probably don't have...

You make a fair point, Wesp. Granted, since Lasombra and The Ministry (Followers of Set) are being allowed into factions in V5, I think it wouldn't be too bold to ask that they include those two clans as playable in Bloodlines 2 DLC.

I'll have to figure out which one of the factions could backstab me, so it will truly feel like Bloodlines 1 all over again. I remember picking the Kuei-Jin in one of my first playthroughs, so I ended up double-dipping on betrayal... XD

If The Pioneers are what I believe they are, then I might join then.

Then again... I cannot possibly imagine any of the factions being "good", so I might end up going independent again.

Lmao, this is VtM, man! Anyone and everyone is likely to backstab you.

Pretty much, but being tossed in the ocean is still one of my favourite bad endings in a game. I really felt genuinely baffled at it (although I also found it pretty funny). It took me by surprise because back then I hadn't gathered all the clues you can find about the Kuei-Jin being awful, so I was "well, let's try these guys, surely they can't be as bad as my previous 'boss', right?". Turns out, I was really wrong. XD

Since the Nosferatu are now announced, I might pick them, since I like that clan a lot. If the Pioneers are Torries, which seems more than likely from the description, then they would be my least favorite faction.
I still would like to have Sabbat as a faction, maybe as a dlc

Although it sounds like the Pioneers definitely have some prominent Toreador members, Outstar said that based on her interview questions with the devs on Friday, each faction isn't just focused on one clan.

Yeah, the same was confirmed in the Q&A session at PDXCon.

I was under the impression that which clan you are depends on who sired you. Actually, it's why thinbloods always confused me.

As far as I know, if the Sire's generation it too low, if they embrace another vampire, the blood will be so diluted that no clan characteristics are inherited and therefore the childer is called a thin blood. To raise to full blood and clan status a thin blood needs to do something else, like diablerize a vampire of higher generation. Which e.g. is common as a reward during a Blood Hunt!
Forgive my nitpicking but its the other way around. If the generation is to high, then it might create a thinblood. The higher the generation, the thinner the blood and the more distance to OG vampire (Cain, in the mainstream).

Personally I'm angling towards the Baron, potentially out of ignorance, for while I don't necessarily like the oligarchy of the Camarilla, the "scream loudly and beat people up" don't seem like a very attractive kind of way to go for me. I liked much of Revisited's Camarilla so I'll go with the faction that has the most of that and the least of what I don't like with the Camarilla.
