The game literally makes units to have gold armor at golden age upgrades. The camel bardings for both archer and rider are extremely similar and fails to stand out. Please make more grounded looking armor, as the sheer smearing of gold is just very chaotic overall.
Gold first of all is a very soft material and nobody uses it in war for armor, other than currency.
All of the Infantry looks hilarious and look like clowns by final age and the golden colour does not add anything of value nor does give any sense or royal or powerful feel.
Here are the images and even in the beta these units looked ridiculous with gold smeared on them, please use more materials and items like textiles, tassels, leather, hide, chain mail, earthen colours, embroidery, prints etc. Everything doesn’t need to be polished to a sheen.
The Camel Riders and Archers are indistinguishable and on top of that all units have gold poured over, them, while menu effects, menu icons, Text colour, way points all are gold. The game suffers from too much gold
The current AOE 4 units after their final upgrade look like this
Please consider this request, most units look very nice by age 3, maybe think about building from there.
