In this post i wanna cover some thoughts how the Regicide Mode could be expanded/evolved. Instead of just letting the King sitting in his castle → being just a passive observer, give the player following option.
In the third age there is a new passiv/offensive way to use the King as Leader of the Army!
Tech (Mount the King) 500 of each ressource
through that the King is now on a Horse with increased stats and an Leader Aura (surrounding army gets +1 Armor and 10% increased damage)
He can´t get loaded into a castle/tower anymore because he is now mounted
This is just a beginning thought but i think it would produce some nice battles and shifts into the game.
