I really enjoy the multiplayer experience of AOE4, but what I often struggle with is communication with my ally. From what I can tell, it stems from AOE4 being a global game and often times people that I am playing with don’t speak my language. I think the game already has a solution in place, but there are not enough preset communication items to communicate with my ally.
For example, I can click the defend/attack and oddly enough, it doesn’t pop up in my native language, but rather my allies…I think what can be changed here is similar to other games … provide a middle click option that has several options for communication. For example, it might be things like we should take this area or take a look at this or take this location or things along those lines.
Some might say all of these options currently exist, but I often feel like I am typing to my ally also from a strategy perspective to talk about rushing or aging up for example. I just feel like people in general ignore chat and that sometimes makes for a frustrating experience.
Perhaps some folks have other ideas…I’d just like a wheel option that has communication available.
