In AOE 2 there are three mesoamerican civilizations: Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas. These civilizations in the game, for some reason have access to technology that they never had in history. Please change in aoe4
Mesoamerican civilizations were classified as “stone age civilizations” because copper gold and silver were the only metals they had discovered. They did not have steel or iron. So why in the ■■■■ do they have two handed swords men. They didn’t have swords. They had clubs with pointy rocks in them. And amour. It was COTTON! whats that gonna stop. Maybe a dark age archer but that’s it. Give me a break they had no Steel Plate armor.
Additionally these civilizations did not even invent the wheel. THE WHEEL! The most basic invention of all time. That means no siege weapons or handcart. So why is there siege so good especially if they have no steel or iron. And trebuchets. Don not get me started about those. ReLLY? Aztecs had trebuchets? Ill answer that for you. NO, THEY DO NOT. Without any basic farming tools their farming should be atrocious anywhere other than by their fertile lakes and mesoamerican rivers.
And another thing. those eagle warriors. why are they so fast? Mesoamericans are a extremely short race and are very wide. Look art usain bolt hes six five. people who are really short and wide are not fast. They certainly could not keep up with a horse. Stop making them something they are not.
And then there are the Boats. Do i even need to say anything about this. They had canoes not galleons. They also did not have crossbows. Both of those things are just ridiculous for them to have. It really has gotten out of control.
Authors note: So um, I get what the devs were trying to do okay they were trying to make the civs all balanced and i get that. I just hope that in the next game that the developers (if mesoamerican civs are included) stay true to history.
If you don’t believe me about anything I said up above. Do some research and you will come to the same conclusion and besides i’m too lazy to post my sources.
Anyways reply and tell me what you think AOE4 should have different than 2
