The title says it all really…
If i have a big army… 10 groups is simply not enough…
I’m using a 12 button mouse but in the group option there is only 10 buttons
IF, in my army i have 36 knights, 20 spear men, 36 hand cannoners, 30 archers, 35 cross bows, 30 men at arms, 6 cannons, 5 mangonels, 9 springals, 4 culverians
So far i have
Group 2: 36 knights
Group 1: 20 spears
Group 3: 30 men at arms
Group 4: 36 hand cannoneers
Group 5: 30 Archers
Group 6: 30 cross bows
Group 7: 5 Mangonels
group 8: 9 Springals
Group 9: 4 culverins
Group 10: All army together group 10.
I’m still missing a group button for my 6 cannons…
Now i’m not talking about adding 1 more button for my grouped cannons.
I’m talking about adding atleast another 15 groups.
I simply need more buttons for more groups.
So… how many more buttons do i need? well i’ll explain what i want here…
3 buttons to split my knights into 3 groups of 12 and 1 button to group all knights together.
i want to split my hand cannoners into like 5 groups (1 shotting an enemy knights with no shots wasted). Same goes for archers and cross bows.
I need like
5 buttons for 5 groups of 6 hand cannoners and 1 button for all cannoners together.
3 buttons for 3 groups of 10 cross bows and a button for all crossbows together
2 buttons for 2 groups of 10 spears and 1 for all spear men together
2 buttons for 2 groups of 15 men at arms and 1 button for all men at arms together
1 button for all melee units together
3 buttons for 3 groups of 10 archers and 1 button for all archers together
2 buttons for light caverly flanking enconomy harass and 1 for all light cav together
(No need for an exstra mangonel button. 5 in a group is fine)
3 buttons for 3 groups of 3 springalds and 1 button for all springalds together.
And finally, I want every cannon with it’s own button so i can micro manage and win a siege weapon shoot out war…
10 buttons for each culverin and cannon, 1 button for all cannons together.
5 buttons for groups of 2 cannons
1 button for all sieg together
1 button for all army together.
So, to be happy, i need a grand total of…
44 gouped buttons…
i currently have 10… I NEED MORE PLZ TY.
SO how can you do this? How can you add more buttons?
So for example: I could hold Control+Number which would give me 10 extra buttons, I did this in world of warcraft.
I also held shift in world of warcraft, but i recognise shift is for queueing unit orders.
Maybe you could hold tab+number button.
I Think this change would seriously add a much, much, much higher skill cap to Age of empires…
Higher skill cap means it’s more fun and more people will play.
Look at league of legends; that skill cap is really high and people still play it religiously.
This age of empires will last a long time… It will take it’s place next to League of legends, next to Starcraft, next to Warcraft, next to Skyrim, next to GTA 5.
People will be playing this game religiously for a long long time. Maybe even 15 years.
SO in the game play… There will be a spike of Glee when someone wins a 100vs100 army battle by micro managing the ■■■■ out of all their units. It will get people hooked.
Like i said, higher skill cap, higher fun, more addictive.
I’m just imagining the mad ■■■■■■■ speed of light keyboard+mouse bashing skills. Haha. Sounds fun.
So… That’s my post request.
(You’re obviously thinking in order to micro manage an army with 44 different buttons you need to be smoking crack or something, LOL.)
