Age of empires is a game i got into because of my dad back in the early 2000’s, he loved the game and i just wanted to get better than him so i basically no lifed it(dont worry i still had a social life and girlfriends thankfully). Well After a small fever dream i thought of some ways maybe the game could be improved for more common rts players like myself.
I feel this games lacks any side of personal touch you could bring into the actual game, everything is as it is all civs all armies have that same basic design(In terms of they dont change too heavily from each individual civ design format). What if you could plaster your own created sticker beneath your town center like an emblem or maybe a player made flag which would be more in line with the theme? Maybe castle’s could have some flavor with the walls being decorated with a small sticker or picture of the players current profile pic or designated ensemble.
Divide Civs by ease of use
When you first start up Age of empires whether its 2 DE or another all the civs don’t have the biology and insight it could have other than a tech tree. It would be nice if either the devs or community could rank or tier out civs dependent on their strongest maps where they are weakest against etc etc it doesnt have to be so expansive but just enough to gain that special dev insight.
The game already boast a relive special battles category which was very thoughtful, but what of certain map trials or civ trials for example it could be win this game in 15 mins 2v1 and youre in the castle age and they are in the stone etc and certain other little details give you such a unique advantage but not enough where its impossible to lose but very much so that u need to be on top of your game so your not overwhelmed. Or you start in the sea have to find land etc etc small tidbits with that bit of ludacris randomness makes games unique in my opinion
One day ill be able to buy Age of empires 2 Definitive edition maybe when this pandemic is over but as i say to all my fellow broke college students. Stay safe and study hard!.
