Yes, but this game has WAY too many Paladin civs. It is no longer a special unit that you get to pay for with the rest of your Tech Tree being bad, like Franks or Teutans had to.
A poll is not conclusive with small sample sizes. You’ll have to wait at least a week or so until a minimum of 100 people voted on this. It also is a very biased sample size, considering it will only sample those which are quite active on the forums. Best would be with any AOE poll to directly ask every player, though this is unfeasible from a normalo Forum user position.
Couldn’t agree more tbh
Im honestly not. Theres always people around who just want Euro civs and Tarascans are mostly unknown. Agree on Iroquois though
I have made a huge effort to remedy this, since they actually fit the game more than Aztecs and Mayans ever did, by virtue of actually having Metal weapons, but to no avail.
I do not think people here are unknowing of them, so much as uninterested.
I find it anyway kinda funny that we keep doing the same stuff in regards to new civs over and over again:
I’m already way too long here XD
Anyway, good night everyone and don’t kill each other on which civ has or has not to be part of this game.
We all love it as much <3
Probably so many upvotes since Balkans are barely represented, if anything by the turko-slavic Bulgarians.
Balkans are represented enough.
The small duchies of the Balkans were usually occupied by other people, like the Ottomans, Magyars or even the Venetians.
You have started a gang war(tbh I dont have a clear stance on this one, all the kingdoms seem to be shortlived there)
true (although i love my cav civs), but i think it would be nice to have a “knight civ” in the sense that you don’t get cavalier but you get an imp UT that essentially buffs your knights to paladin level with some extra stat buff
Not true, Slavs (at least the ones in game) are Ruthenians and not part of the Balkans. Byzantines = Eastern Roman Empire (greek)
No georgians or armenians??
If people want american civs that much, I’m quite puzzled as to why they vote for muiscans, mapuche and tarascans. Muiscans were a copper age civilization, with tons of gold, and are the origin of el dorado legend. But they were just a tribal society grouped in a confederation at their peak. Their territory was very small too. That’s not enough. Mapuche were a stone age civilization organized in 6 separated tribal societies during the period aoe2 portrays. In my opinion, they belong to age of empires 3 because they used horses and learned to use metal (mainly copper tools and silver ornaments) after the Spanish colonization. Tarascans are the only solid option out of these 3 because they had bronze. But even then, they didn’t know how to refine metals, so their bronze alloys weren’t as hard and resistant as other types of bronze from refined copper. They also learned to use metals VERY late aprox some decades before the Spanish conquest, and got the knowledge from trades with ecuadorian regions.
Our passion and love for this videogame speaks through the very posts that we publish here in this Age Forum.
I think it would be cool with a Tibetans civ, that only gets Knights and no Plate Barding Armour, but gets 2 UTs for them, one for Lammellar Armour with a huge PA value, and anotehr one to make them a Trash unit.
Which includes Greece=Balkans
Byzantine inhabitants spoke Greek.
Slavs cover South Slavs perfectly.
We are rumored to already be getting Georgians in DotD, so I did not include them. To be honest, having both would be redundant, as Armenians are already well covered by Byzantines, to whom thy served as Heavy Cavalry, and justify the Paladin unit.
We have Bulgarians for taht.
maybe not a trash unit… as the knight is all around good, but it has its gold cost for a reason. a trash knight will also serve as a good anti-building role imo, since you can mass them, something that is usually reserved for siege in a trash war. however it could be balanced depending on what techs they have or if the UT also nerfs them and etc.
A Trash Knight would be similar to Magyar Huszars. I think they would be broken.
Maybe it would be their only viable Imperial Age Trash unit, and without Plate Barding, it woudl still be counterable by Pikes and Halbs, even Camels.
Tbh Bulgarians didnt justify their existance gameplay wise. Too much like Slavs with infantry, cavalry and siege and they were Orthodox and had Boyars as well. I would have rather have Serbs over them
