Very Happy for Beloved AoE3, but a Colossal Missed Opportunity: PERSIA

I’d prefer Morocco next or the Danes.

Expansion packs are themed. The only ones that are not themed are the conquerors (with a “conquest America” semi-theme but also Huns and Koreans who are not so relevant) and forgotten empires (which comes from a mod).

Safavids would come with Oman or Morocco.
Danes I’m not sure because Swedes are already there. Maybe they can split it into an one-civ DLC like what they did with US and Mexico.

I meant exactly that on the maps above. Safavid Empire = good ole Persia. Where is it on AoE3?

Persian civilization will add in AoE3 someday, nobody knows when. I’m sure many people explained that the example is where the poles civilization and danes civilization? They’re fit for AoE3. Also zulu civilization is too fit for AoE3 because they did war with britishs. More lots of examples. developer can’t add all civilizations from everyone who wishes, pre-order or buy a generous situation because you can make them invent more time, it is a chance that they will add persian civilization.

Denmark was also an active player within the Era of Colonization. They have colonies in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Serampore in West Bengal, Tranquebar in the realm of Rajah of Tanjore, five colonies next to Gulf of Guinea, plus some other islands in the East Carribbean.

Yeah these maps are very illustrative of the importance, size and interconnectedness of Persia, they’re worth 10,000 words.

I feel fine if only Persia is added together with a reworked Ottoman civilization.

The Knights of Malta actually colonised (kind of) four Caribbean islands, so they fit the original theme. I think the only colonising nations still missing now are the Danes and Norwegians.

Persia, Morocco are good choices!

Technically it’s a colossal missed opportunity to add any other civ, but as I said before, this is for profit and Malta recycles so much from the campaign that it’s literally pure profit.

It’s pure asset re-use, you mean. Selling something that already existed for $$$.

I can’t agree more.

The game only really NEEDS Persia + a reworked EMPIRE which has been growing increasingly obvious for years…

@BroaderSheep35 is right on the money!

This is so cool, I didn’t know they annihilated the Portuguese.

I thought the bulk of the Portuguese army had been

OBLITERATED by the Moroccan proxy of the Ottoman Empire, with Ottoman artillery and gun assistance, at the momentous battle of al-Kasr Kebir.

Happens in every AoE subforum already…

Order of Saint John, Malta - 1530-1798, 268 years.

Safavid Empire - 1501–1736, 235 years.

Easy to see who wins this round :wink:

End of the Safavid empire was beginning of the more powerful Afsharid empire
