Should devs implement unit formations since Bronze Age? (POLL)

Should devs implement unit formations since Bronze Age?
  • Yes, but let us break formations if we want (acting as a toggle), to achieve AoE1 default pathfinding. Also give us an option to disable their usage entirely, similarly to the “solid farms” feature. A true definitive edition would allow players to choose how they want to play.
  • No, we prefer not to have formations implemented in any way. They were introduced in AoE2 and they should be avoided in AoE1 in order to preserve the original gameplay.

With more than one week up, we already have our results.

Optional formations would be the best outcome. A toggle being available in both Custom Game and Campaigns screen would be ideal. They would not only apply to the player, but all other players as well.

I don’t think there’s a better way of thinking about formations, than them being optional.

Make it a Bronze or Iron Age technology.


…accessible through the Government Center :wink:

Would make sense, considering the “smart” stuff happens there, such as Architecture, Engineering and Alchemy.

Government Center would be usual choice but I would even suggest Academy.

Either building would be OK if you ask me, but since not only academy units would be affected by the tech, I think it would be better to have it available through Government Centers.
