Now, will the subfactions, say the ones from the Rollingplain region have a bonus or something in that specific region or those type of conditions (flat, wide areas)?

Economy aside i guess you mean would rollingplains player fight better in rollingplains terrain region. If i got this right - the answer is yes, but only to some extent.

Using same rollingplains as an example - player would have some of the best cavalry - due to rollingplains economy and also improved Calvary stats - and since rollingplains is en empty field - cavalry would greatly dominate here.
Using same logic - Southmount infantry would be great at holding the chokepoints, and Wold archers would make use of dense forests for hit and run, or ambush tactics.

There are also certain home-terrain bonuses, for example, elven soldiers would slowly auto-heal and have slower fatigue drain on their home turf which allows them to use their ability, such as hide for much longer periods.

I can`t comment on how much of an impact this would have on gameplay - as we`d only get to work it out during the beta test.

So, basically, each (sub)faction's advantages usually play best on that (sub)faction's terrain?

Each subfaction's bonuses make sense in the context of their own region's terrain. The bonuses are based on the land-type and location.

I sense a lot of guerilla warfare in the future of DOF :) good, it is necessary to add depth and strategy and meaning to the game... why defend your land if it gives you no bonus and you could easily go get a new one?
