Regicide/Royal Rumble is one of my favourite game modes and I was so excited to see it coming back in the PUP. Unfortunately, in its current state it’s not playable/enjoyable.
The AI treats the King like an attacking unit/troop and charges straight at your walls/army with the King in tow. 9 times out of 10 I find out that the enemy AI has been wiped out because their King has led an army at my towers. I’ve also encountered issues of the AI Kings wandering around the map like a scout, however much slower and no sheep in tow. These issues obviously mean that the game frequently ends before you can get even 20 minutes into a match as AI are wiping each other out or throwing their King at your towers.
It would be great if that could be fixed and repatched sooner so that we can test the game mode fairly and give feedback on how the actual game mode functions.
Beyond that, it would also be nice to have some inclusivity and be able to select between a King or a Queen. Obviously no functional difference there, but would be nice to have the choice, especially for if you have several players on the same civilisation.
