It would be great if we had a feature in multiplayer to be able to personalize your own civ when playing against other players. It can give a unique touch and feeling to your civ even if the other player is playing the same civ. By personalizing, I mean just aesthetically without impacting the gameplay. Like to have your own flag and banners waving on towers, buildings, walls etc.
When playing multiplayer in aoe, aoe2 and aoe3 and building a massive empire, it doesn’t feel that it was yours. It doesn’t feel that you are representing your civ outside of your gamertag that is shown.
Adding some customization like creating your own flag and banner etc to be visible ingame could give more identity to you as a player online. It can give the feeling that you identify yourself as the civ and enjoy the battle more as it is your civ that has to win for its survival.
Anyway, what do you guys think of this?
