Being a Brazilian, and thus, having zero hope my country will ever be represented in the game, I can safely say I just want more content and options for the game, regardless of the region involved. :slight_smile:

Thats fine but i made this poll because everyone keeps saying: “We are all sick and tired of Europe”. this poll isn’t about whether you like expansions

It’s just the usual suspects that always claim that their “position” would be the “one” of everybody else.
It’s just how they argue to win the arguments they created themselves.

Hey, you have the Portuguese! Isn’t it something? Heh. I’m Argentine and I should be content with the Spanish. Actually, the Inca are the closest native american civilization to my homeland. Their sun god Inti is featured in our flag. I guess Peruvians and Mexicans are the winners in the contest of “whose non-European country made it to Age of Empires”.

Seriously now, the developers of the game are descendants of Europeans and the game will always be eurocentric. They have already done a lot to explore the world history and include different people. Most importantly, you need to have the mindset of the people back then - Europe wasn’t a thing. Franks, Teutons and Spanish were like different worlds alltogether.

well of course this game take place from the dark age to the early renaissance why would it have Brazilians?

I mean, I did a poll a while ago and Europe did really badly.

Yes and no. I’d really like another DLC that doesn’t focus on Europe (at least two or three in a row), but if they go back to Europe after giving us more non-Euro civs, I would gladly accept them.

There’s no between option for me sadly. I’m tired of Western European civs, for me personally (and my first priority) only the Caucasus feels like the missing “European” region while Swiss would be somewhat of a stretch.

My 2nd priority are Indian split civs while my 3rd is more Asian civs.

Mountain Lords DLC - Adding the Swiss, Georgians and Armenians with the latter two with a new build set along with Bulgarians and Byzantines. Three campaigns - Rise of Swiss Confederacy, Tamar the Great and Leo the Great of Armenia!

Throw in Serbia (also mountainous country) in there with Bulgarian and Byzantine set and you have a deal :wink:

As I’ve stated elsewhere - I’d be fine with more European civs AFTER we get more civs elsewhere. the last 3 DLC have focused mostly on Europe and I believe that we should show Africa, India, and other regions a little love.

Am I tired of European civilizations in the DLCs? No.
Would I prefer non-European civilizations in the next DLCs? Absolutely.

Depends what you define as European I think Georgians are a must, but I don’t think they fully count as European
After that… Maybe? just focus on others first, I wouldn’t mind Wallachians and Serbians after some Caucasian, Indian and African DLCs

The options are kind of reductive, I think we need a differenciation to be made between those who are tired at the moment but would be okay with a return to Europe after the rest of the world has received some attention, and those who don’t want any new European civs ever (which may be like two people). Among others.

As you and others have stated, ‘everyone is tired of Europe’ is what I picked up.
