The wood on island maps really doesn’t last very long. Especially team games where it can easily goes beyond 40 mins and wood starts to run out. So whoever pick Portuguese will get auto win. I’m sure many people have this kind of complaints.
Please increase the amount of wood per tree, just for island maps, maybe rework the island style maps or release new version that contain more wood for ranked play?
In aoe3 they recently added a card to Haude civ which make trees generate 500% more wood, to solve the late game wood running out problem for that civ. Similar inspiration can be found for aoe2
BTW I also want to see more maps with neutral market so that late game there are unlimited gold, so we don’t have to use 3 trash units forever until wood runs out. (not every map need that, just potential new maps)
I guess aoe4 not so much because you can trade for wood for some civs, and there are more resources generating building, also there is no need for farm reseeding. Aoe3 most of civs have unlimited wood by factory or equivalent buildings. So it is just aoe2 problem.
