Mobile typing here sucks… the screen cant orient so im typing blind everytime on this forum. So if theres typos just try to read through it lol. I have noticed a lot of discussions regarding E sport focused play. I know that someone had mentioned that they are trying to implement StarCraft to type Eastport because we can all admit for such an old game that I played probably 20 years ago and as a kid it is still going strong and making money for the developers. So there is some pros and cons to this one of them I see a lot of people complaining that the civilizations are kind of boring and asymmetrical. In the feel of StarCraft two they’re not asymmetrical and between the different races there is big differences with the tech tree and everything else but it all balanced out very well in competition so maybe things will change as it gets further down with DLC and other content but what are your pros and cons to this topic?
This was the article that sparked my attention:
Thank you all for your feedback! It will be forwarded to the team.
Starcraft’s emergence as a spectator phenomenon is part of the historical birth of esport and Blizzard learned from it, developing SC2 with esports in mind: you can see how it informed their design decisions on gameplay, visuals, UI, and spectator features. We take a lot of inspiration from Starcraft and its development tenets.
The competitive scene and esports are an important aspect to any PvP game. For AoE4, we consider it vital. From game balance, to modding, to tournaments and support. We want to capture historical moments, feature our own set of micro and macro challenges and have a depth in strategy that rivals the best of the best!
Community feedback is integral to our process. Thank you for your thoughts, suggestions, and concerns.
Edit - we saw the opportunity to clarify and expand on some of our sentiments in our original post. Thanks everyone!
