I’m an AoE2 player and I love ludicrous map. Truth be told, I wanna go bigger… much bigger. So long as it doesn’t get boring I love rediculously long games.
This suggestion comes in 3 parts:
- The Collosal Map
- The Earth Map
- The Collosal Tournement
So I’ve always thought that maps should be bigger, or at least regions represented in AoE2 should be larger in comparison to units and buildings. Just my preference I guess. But it’s like you play one of the country map and the villager (Giant) walks across the entire continent like its nothing…
Anyway, I think there should be a new size map - yes it would take a beefy computer but hear me out:
- A country the size of say France for example should fit snugly within the current ludicrous map…
- Then we make a proportionally sized Map the size of the Earth.
- The Size of that map is the “Collosal Map”.
- It follows that we then make a proportionately sized accurate map of the world which can accomodate hundreds of players. This is the “Earth Map” (Not like what we have in AOE2 DE where Ireland the UK is literally 2 squares…)
I’m musing with the idea a little bit and my main thought as a result is that the map would be so big that tournments played upon it would probably require most of the computing power to be done from a dedicated server. This way we can have hundreds of players playing at a time in a stupidly epic throwdown across the entire planet. Another suggestion to this is that if it is from a dedicated server, there would be nothing to stop the host from stitching East and West together so we would have a trully circumnavigable globe (at least along the Latitudal axis).
I just want a crazy all out battle across a realistic Earth. I don’t care if it lasts for days. I won’t sleep and I’ll play as Mayans and I’ll still kick noones asses because I’m a noob
