I have seen streamers using the mangonel range mod and I believe it to be such a huge advantage, that it doesn’t seem fair for some players to have it and others to not. I love that part of the game is knowing where the range of siege is. It seems crazy that mod’s are not regulated for ranked games.
In my opinion it looks horrible and lowers the skill level to the game. I hope that the answer isn’t to add it to the game officially (like building range) as this means that if players don’t adopt, they are at a great disadvantage. Putting in building range feels like the start of a slippery slope, where my beautiful AOE2 battlefield becomes full of circles and extra information that isn’t the aoe2 I love.
I love this game but Mangonel range mod FeelsBadMan
