In the spirit of the Wololo Wednesdays of forlorn times, I made a thing. It’s a flowchart that will let you find out exactly which unit best represents you in AOE2. Match yourself to any member of any of the 72 unit lines you can make during a regular game of Age 2! (And maybe one or two more.) This project has been in the works for a while, but the announcement of the upcoming DLC came just in time for me to include the new units as well.
Now, the final image is kind of big, so I didn’t want to paste it straight into the forum to save the layout, and maybe people’s data bundle. Click the giant thumbnail below to be taken to the full image.
Done? Like what you got? Tell the world which unit you are, if you think that’s accurate and if you like playing with yourself! As a unit in AOE2 I mean…
Also a poll, because 12 out of 10 people agree that polls are awesome and unbiased!:
- Yes! I built a new strategy around my unit and my elo went up a hundred points!
- Yes! I now know what my next AOE cosplay is going to be!
- Yes! It inspired me to organize a tournament where everyone plays using their soulmate unit!
- Yes! This test has given me 20% more opinions I am going to discuss on this forum!
- Yes! For other reasons I will explain below.
- I’m not a Flaming Camel.
(Note on the colors: I went with a combination that looked thematically appropriate and to me seemed legible enough. This may not be the same for people with say color blindness, an old monitor, a small phone screen or a lack of pre-existing knowledge on where all the arrows lead. I you have trouble finding your way around the chart please complain and give directions on what would make the chart easier to read for you, and I’ll make a more legible version eventually.)
