Hi AOE team,
Please add more asymmetrical civs in future like how you guys did in AOE 3 and AOEO, both are vey fun games with insane personality. Every civ feels like a unique culture.
AOE 2 is just too boring and monotonous. It’s just knight spam with crossbow, and only can see some interesting micro in tournaments by others. The AOE 2 game is such a snooze fest where every game plays the same, despite having UU. Thus the game feels balanced, because every civ is same lol.
In AOEO each civ is very fun tomplay, with their own little mechanic, which makes them stand out very nicely. Like Celts sacrificing deer and their nature themed aspects, Romans with their officers and Engineering, Greeks your standard civ, Egyptians with their gods and offerings, Vikings with ability to build and raid as a military on the go, Babylonian with their gardens, mobility and technology, Persians with immortals, shock cavs, toggle techs. Everything in AEO 3 and AOEO is oozing with personality and creativity.
In AOE 3 the game is actually fun to play, it’s so much more smoother, less clunkier and has lot of unique additions to the game which makes it amazing. Every skirmish play in AOE 3 is more dynamic compared to AOE 2 and offers so many fun options to boost the economy and army.
Even AOM did so many hings very nicely, one of the best mythological games out there.
So in future please add more civs with very different mechanics, The current civs in AOE 4 are great they all have good unique mechanics, but let the game overflow with imagination and new ideas, but currently most civs end up with lancer/knight spam just like AOE2. Hope you guys think for more creative ways to play the game in future updates.
let AOE 4 be it’s own thing, throw away the baggage of AOE2 and let AOE 4 the game breath itself.
