Is there a list of all the changes between AoE:DE and Return of Rome?

There seems to be a lot off small changes made to the civilization’s and to the game, which are not documented anywhere.

Few of the biggest non documented changes I have found (Compared to the AoE:DE)

Most of these changes are reverted to the Rise of Rome changes, but there are some changes made which are neither in the Rise of Rome nor in the AOE:DE versions. These change are highlighted in bold.

  1. Villagers no longer receive +10% movement speed when aging up to the Tool Age.
  2. Scouts food cost increased from 90 to 100
  3. Broad Swordsman hit points reduced from 80 to 70
  4. Long Swordsman hit points reduced from 100 to 80
  5. Legion hit points Increased from 140 to 160
  6. Long Swordsman upgrade cost decreased from 240F 100G to 160F 50G
  7. Helepolis damage reduced from 45 to 40
  8. Helepolis upgrade cost increased from 1200F 1000W to 1500F, 1000W
  9. Cataphract hit points reduced from 240 to 220
  10. Elephant Archer Gold cost reduced from 60 to 45

Civilization changes

  • Assyrian no longer has access to Alchemy
  • Babylonian loses access to all Chain mail upgrades
  • Palmyra Villagers no longer have +1 pierce armor

Side note: Persian technology tree incorrectly states that they have access to Chariots/Scythe Chariots, and that they do not have access to Elephant Archers.

Literally all of these are being reverted in the hotfix I’m pretty sure:

Villagers still don’t get 10% faster in Tool age and Scout costs are not changed back.
Scouts got bonus damage against Archers in RoR though.
