After seeing in the trailer those huge upgraded stone walls with soldiers walking on top of them, I wish that they can’t be taken down without making use of siege engines.
That would add more to the realism of the game and to the immersion of building an actual empire, that can’t be just taken down by foot soldiers or horsemen.
It would also introduce a whole new chapter of besieging towns in AoE.
Winning a huge battle in the middle of the map and having a small bunch of 5 horsemen destroying your big stone walls somewhere behind your base (even multiple layers of them) and invading your economy doesn’t make sense and cancels the meaning of building those huge walls.
I suppose it would also slower the pace of late game or late-mid game which I personally enjoy more this way.
Would you like to see stone walls that can only be destroyed by siege engines or other specially designed siege units?
- Yes, I want actual stone walls.
- No, I want to be able to destroy stone walls with all types of units.
