I was getting worried that Relic would do what they do in most of the RTS games they make and make it so that player 1 is always blue. Especially since every picture and clip i have seen the player is blue. It might seem like nothing but something bothers me about playing England in blue while fighting France in red! I hope we can select colours.
I’ve been ringing the color bell prettym uch since the first build I had a chance to test. I don’t have high hopes to see anything like that in the near future. Certainly not with big update ahead, and Relic in general being absorbed with CoH3 development.
But since we’re talking about team colors- I’m almost equally annoyed by color situation with cosmetic customization.
Yes this game has (overall IMHO pretty great) art direction and more defined in-game art style than AoE III, and I understand they might want game to be more cohesive visually and that requires more control, but… I really don’t like the presented, arbitrary color selection.
Primo- it’s the number of choices, secundo- included options. We get three shades of green or blue in a category, but can’t have light grey, dark grey? Not black? Not even white?! Come on.
Besides art direciton there might be other reasons like technical limitations or monetization (speaking in general about games, not IV specifically) but games like AoE III that gave huge freedom spoil people, and it’s kinda hard accept worse offer.
Or when it’s curated and controlled, I remember Warframe has amazing options. Just lo… just LOOK AT THAT!
