Look at screenshot below that I grab from gameplay demonstration
AOE 4 has this crappy unit selection by colorful stroke outline across units and buildings that hate most of rts players and used in red alert 3, c&c 4 and dow 3 instead of classic circles selection under buildings and units? Just look to the farthest building in the middle of screenshot.
Why? Why lelic choose such horrible decision, it’s clearly that such outline across units selection is much worse and much more uncomfortable than classic unit selection by circles under them that standart for rts for more 20 years. Also this crappy outlines across units and buildings pretty heavily ruining immersion and atmosphere of game because it’s distract too much attention from what is happening on the screen.
Who was responsible for such crappy UX? Please lelic, fire this UI lead, becaus it’s pretty stupid decision tbh, I hate it at all, return classic circle unit and building selection.
