Hey all!

We've just implemented a new version of our old forum ranks!

The new "Idle Villager" rank has some slightly limited abilities here in the forums, and they cannot post discussions or do things like post links or set a signature on their posts. When you have commented 3 times you'll reach the rank of "Scout Cavalry" and gain all the usual posting abilities! This is to help combat spam, and should not affect most of you, as you have likely already posted more than 5 times and have a higher rank:)

Check out the list of ranks here:

    **Romans and Babylonians look awesome! :D **

  • KingDarBojaKingDarBoja ColombiaMember, Insider ✭Crossbowman✭

    I loved Phoenicians because the naval warfare was so good with them (firing rate faster that any civ).

    By the way, I am waiting to see if there are going to be new civs ingame.

  • xGurbyxxGurbyx Member, Insider ✭Scout Cavalry✭

    Persians!! Those war elephants were so fast! hehe I'll never forget that, hopefully they keep that feature :D

  • SlothzeeSlothzee Member, Insider ✭Idle Villager✭

    I have never play the first game before, but looking forward to try out Persians civilization.

  • SnakeShifterVSnakeShifterV Member, Insider ✭Idle Villager✭

    Persians FTW!

    Assyrians were almost always picked in RM for their faster villager bonus and increased chariot fire rate, which was very important for chariot archers!

    Siempre me gusto la música cuando exploraba el mapa y el wholooo de los monjes. Mi civilización favorita...los Romanos...siempre.

  • Stevenx110Stevenx110 ColombiaMember, Insider ✭Scout Cavalry✭

    Los egipcios, griegos y cartagineses fueron mis civilizaciones favoritas! :)

  • rhrmnrhrmn USA Member, Moderator, Insider mod

    My favorite civilization from Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome Expansion was the Carthaginians.

  • DrucificiousDrucificious Member, Insider ✭Idle Villager✭

    Definitely the Assyrians. I enjoy a challenge.

  • pecelotpecelot Member, Insider ✭Ox Cart✭

    Greeks for their awesome tutorial campaign I'll never forget!

  • AeroSmash16AeroSmash16 Member ✭Idle Villager✭

    Persians of course. We love the war elephants! They are war machines

  • patãopatão Member ✭Idle Villager✭

    Phoenicians, I don't remember why but I think it was just the sweet name

  • ThomvlThomvl Member ✭Idle Villager✭

    Egyptians cause gold is already rare, and they gave a nice bonus on it

  • VacuumoVVacuumoV Member ✭Idle Villager✭

    First, persians would like to check out. :)

  • SporeDemigodSporeDemigod Member ✭Idle Villager✭

    Choson! Loved their +range towers, and Legion-spamming was such a fun way to overwhelm enemies.

  • Rectalpin1stRectalpin1st Member ✭Idle Villager✭

    Sooo hard to pick...but I guess...Choson?! I just love the architecture and that tower spam <3 Every civ was amazing in it's own way, but looking back I think I played this one the most :smile: Oh the good old days of waking up before your parents and sneaking in on the PC just to squeeze in one match before going to school!

    I haven't had the chance to play AOE 1 (I guess my parents didn't buy the right kind of cereal in 1998) but I'm looking forward to playing the Egyptians, since you don't get to in Age 2, and they have/had such a unique real world culture.

    Most favourite was Egyptian. Hope to get picked for this swag!

  • PlaintiveClown1PlaintiveClown1 Member, Insider ✭Idle Villager✭

    Go Romans!

  • TeutonicusTeutonicus Germany / DeutschlandMember, Insider ✭Scout Cavalry✭

    In original I loved playing the Phoenicians. They were a massive Power with 66% faster firerate. Simply loved them!

    But the civ I'm most excited to play for are the Carthaginians. In fact they are Phoenicians too. :)

    But mainly I love them for their buildingstyle and Academyunits.

  • ABetterBadgerABetterBadger Member, Insider ✭Scout Cavalry✭

    My favorite civ is the Carthaginians, because they punched Rome in the face, and I admire that.

  • BarCharlyBarCharly Member ✭Idle Villager✭

    Carthaginians of course.

  • bulutcetbulutcet Member, Insider ✭Idle Villager✭

    Egyptians my fav! Chariot power!!

  • Denny13HDenny13H Member, Insider ✭Idle Villager✭

    My favorite civilization are the chosons, because I really like that extra tower range!

  • AssyrianAxemanAssyrianAxeman Salt Spring Island B.C.Member, Insider ✭Ox Cart✭

    Assyria for that name and the "**** man rush" So much fun when you mix Slingers in mid Tool Age ^^

  • ronaldovetronaldovet Member, Insider ✭Idle Villager✭

    My favorite civilization are the Romans. Age of Empires is a great game.

  • Der_RichterrrDer_Richterrr Member, Insider ✭Idle Villager✭

    I pick the Greeks, because I took them all the time when I was a little boy. :smiley:
