Hey all, since the beta is over now we have closed down the beta specific forums. Don't freak out if you can't see it, it's not a glitch:)
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: https://forums.ageofempires.com/discussion/15139/forum-rank-system/p1?new=1
Just for fun! Realistic weather
Imagine if they added realistic weather.
There are some clouds flying above the map and if you zoom out enough you couldn't see through them. You wouldn;t see raiders coming under the cloud if you were fully zommed out
If it is raining over a farm then it restores some food in it or if it hailed over they would lose some food.
There is a storm coming and if a lighning strike hits a unit it dies or hit a building and it takes damage.
