Balancing in Age of Empires 4

So guys I have been wondering, since we have now only 8 Civilizations in Age of Empires 4, what would you do about the balancing? Because after reading the website I noticed that the “nest of Bees” and the “Landsknecht” could get very op at some point.

What do you think about it? Will they balance it or not?

They will probably try their best to balance these units and if balancing still isn’t perfect at release then they will continue tweaking until it’s in a good spot.


As long as they do it carefully instead of with a sledge hammer, they will get them balanced.

The kind of balancing that I hate is the OP>useless>OP>Useless roller coaster

That’s why they have beta to see what is balanced or not.

rts game balancing is hard, pervious aoe series games have poor balance on release too. Won’t be surprised for me it takes few months to balance, as players take time to find out too.

From my experience most players have poor balancing ideas/feedback, as many of them can’t even play thier civ well…


And that’s also why I think there will be a second closed beta for all the people who played the first one. Because this BEta with all Civs could give them a good feedback about balancing.
