AoE3 DE, the City Card system should be Full unlocked by default.
AoE3 did have in my opinion one heavy problem:
I could not play it online due to the City Card system.
Its basically this, you want to play, people check your home city level and kick you from lobby.
You need to spend really a lot of time level up one city, modern day word is grind.
Even for free2play game that system won’t make sense.
Even if AoE3 DE would import old progress, still many people did not play it online due to it.
I really hope they do fix this for AoE3 DE.
Nobody even liked the grind, it takes so much time, you can’t even simply switch factions.
Yes its awful as “new city” has card for 4 units, same card for end level city has 20 units.
That’s why many people could not play it online.
Its the main thing they should really fix.
