Different maps and different sacred sites, market numbers, landscape and resouces distribution.
Just paly a map called King of the Hill and found out that there are no nutural market and all gold are in the middle. It’s really super late after I found out that I need to do a all in to get the middle.
It’s super weird we dont even know anything before we get into the maps.
This is the same issue in AOE2 but in AOE4 it’s definitely need to be improved.
You can’t just let the players jump in a map they dont even know what it is before the game starts.
