⌛ COMING SOON! Age of Empires II: DE September Update!

fishermen workrate is a very situational bonus. Very few maps like Bedouins and Mountain ridges were u can get a good benefit from that. People are facing problem with Khmer Battle eles in Teamgames because of their speed and Khmer farm bonus combined together. You’d rarely see Burmese or Vietnamese elephants in evenly matched 1v1s or TGs amongst good players. It will mostly be flank Arbalest-Rattan archers for Vietnamese or pocket Arambai for Burmese.
I think giving Battle Elephants to Indians might not change the way Indians are played in TGs right now at a competitive level, but it will be a good alternative. Not that Indians need Battle Elephants, but it will be interesting to see and I don’t think it will make them OP. It will be like Mongol having Steppe lancers now.

Will there be any Slav/Lithuanians/Teutons campaign? There’s a big hole on the Europe map which could seem like the perfect place for an Alexander Nevsky & or Grunwald campaigns!

Lets hope they fixed the random drops when loading the game on ranked TGs which were introduced in last patch. They can be very annoying and they occur here and there for majority of players.

Not cool…
Hope this can be fixed, too

I would love to have regional monks skins…


I think Japan should strengthen.

Same. Give the monks of Middle Eastern civs Iman skins and the monks East Asian civs Buddhist priest skins.


No fix on the Pause/Unpause feature? There has been a problem lately of players being able to immediately unpause games after someone pauses it.

If anything they should swap the unique unit with Persians.
Elephant archers together with trashbows might actually see some use. While the better food eco of indians could give the War Elephant some use, and Indians would finally have a decent Elephant unit.

I think Japan can have crop ratation or heavy catapult.

There is a command that lets them not surrender and fight to the death

Of the last 10 games I played, in 8 someone has been sent off and ruined the game! Can you fix that please !! It is unplayable!

Are War Elephants ‘decent’? News to me, I thought they were considered mostly unusable. Indeed, they are hard to make work, although they are easier to make work than elephant archers, that much is for sure.

With the better Indian food eco they could be.
Non elite War elephant has around the same strength as an Elite Battle elephant, costing 80 food more.
So every ~10 villagers that you create make up for the cost difference between War and Battle elephant. Not saying they are great, but giving them to Indians could actually give them a role.
Indians do have the eco to produce Elephant archers, they are only useless, because Indians can’t really make use of food archers.

Agreed. As @TwentyErmine740 mentions, there’s an AI command you can do from the chat window… it is “104”.

There’s been discussion on this over here… and I proposed a solution that would help things a lot in a Quality of Life (QoL) way:
