As someone that loves to play with the Magyars I rly love the new look of their Huszars, it looks sick imo, but I understand the complains that it doesn’t trully represent the real ones. I wish they could fix their look for vanilla but still give us a mod to add the wings back.
But when there are MANY units in a mess and you do not zoom it is hard to see if it is a knight or a light cav. It is true that I see worse in D.E. compared to the Conq. , in fact even the monks look bad in myview, classical monks were OK, why did they even change it
I fully agree with your comment. The only one issue i have with the new magyar huszar models is that they got wings, nothing else. Just like they didnt have wings in the forgotten because they arent poland I kinda want the same thing. And your solution would be pretty much on what i would prefer.
How can you not see the difference between knights and light cav? Knights have white horse and shield and the light cav has brown horse and no shield.
Also the Magyar Huszar has a unique shield that no other units has in the game…
Monks pretty much look the same.
AoE2 has an extremely poor track record with historical accuracy across the board. You sound ridiculous complaining about this one specific thing when the entire game is and has always been like that. It’s clear that you know very little about history outside of what is probably your own country of Hungary. I’m from Norway but you don’t see me whining that the Viking Berserk has horns on his helmet when real vikings never did, because that’s a silly thing to nitpick about in a game where any 400 AD civilization across the globe can build exploding ships.
- Vikings did have ceremonial helmets and they did have them in age 2 hd too.
- Magyar huszars didn’t have wings in hd, they didnt have any kinds of wings in history so not sure what you are on about. You pretty much ignored everything i brought up just to try to prove something.
Berserkers weren’t changed anything and been accuratly brought from hd to de, magyar huszars weren’t. Now what if vikings got wings on their backs in de? I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t be fine with that and if thats the case than whats your point? What magyar huszars and berserkers share in history is that neither of them had wings.
You pretty much justifying a stupid change that was ACCURATE in hd to not be accurate in de just because age 2 never was 100% historically accurate. Interestingly enough it was still accurate in hd for the magyar huszar that is.
This is pretty much what the hussars themselves based on the only thing they had to do is not put on the wings.
Yeah I’m really not a fan of the wings either. This was possibly the coolest looking unit in the previous game and they are plenty distinctive already because of their shields. The wings look pretty dumb to me. Honestly, I wish they would get rid of them for regular hussars too.
Fully agree with you. On the regular hussars part tho, I don’t think we can get this one thing resolved. Difference between magyar and regular hussars that regular ones even had wings in hd, magyar huszars on the other hand didn’t. So if they manage to listen to us and remove the wings at least from them, I’d be satesfied. But I’m kinda losing hope, cos not many people seem to care or just those people can’t find this. And there are also people who make excuses for the wings. All they had to do to recreate the hd magyar huszar faithfully, but they felt the urge to stamp on the stupid wings.
