Do not take me wrong, but these graphics and gameplay showed in the fan preview, has a combination of all age games.
Unfortunately AoE 2 fans are pushing devs to make a game as close as their fav game. Even we are 2021 they still want operator less units, unrealistic micro managing units and limited resources.
In my opinion, if they did AoM 2 instead of AoE 4, they would be adding a bit of everything and nobody would complain, and AoM fans would be super happy. Then after people reaction on AoM 2 as a base point base, they would take notes and try their best to make AoE4 the best game of the saga…
Hope you understand my point of view. And yeah I want AoM 2 after AoE 4, cant wait for it LOL
