Polls;- African Continent and the AoE IV

#1

African continent was known as ‘Scramble Africa’. Historically Africa was a battleground for all European powers there were English, French, Spanish, Portuegese, Dutch… All racing for their supermacy against each other espically the race against acquiring larger coastline terroritories. In the world war eras, it was race between Axis and Allied forces.

How many off you agree Africa fit for AoE IV???

You’re right but right now I’m just conducting polls for the AoE future franchises.

Africa needs to be well represented no matter what era AoE4 is set in.

No it does not, at all. It’s usually left out for a reason so stop the Wakandan bs.

That reason is affirmatively not because there are no worthy civilizations in Africa. AoE has always whitewashed history in its civ selections.

Is your definition of whitewashing a list of civilisations?

AoE has a long history of launching with European civs and relegating other continents to expansion pack afterthoughts. AoC and AoE3 are good examples of this.

Is not Egypt the start of AOE in Africa ?

in AOE3 you guys ignored Africa. In AOE4 I hope they enter as a pro civilization Playable after 1945 like Asia

Instead of classification like dutch, portugese etc we must classify AOE4 with region based civs

North American full
East Europe (Soviet Bock) full
West Europe (Celtic warmongers) full
British commonwealth full
Far East Asia

Pro
South Asia
East Asia
Latin America
Africa
Mideast
Island nations(Sea People)

America were only 3 Empires at that timeframe maybe more if we considered other Non Aztec Mexican factions.

Asia starting best as America. Oceania haven’t any…

Indeed it got much better since The Forgotten DLC and other newer DLC’s for AOE 2 & 3.

I rather have even more civilisations with their own culture and empires in this game. Especially if it leads to exciting new game play, units and buildings. Then you could classify them in their original region and balance out each and every civ in those regions a little bit different based on their own specialities.
