I wish we had a game that combined Sim City 4 with Civilization because of pictures.
It would be nice to really build your cities & nation over thousands of years.

I would combine the following games into one. Sim city 4 & Civ for the base concept,
universalis & Vic, and HOI 3:the black ice mod to flesh out the technology and historical events.

EU4 would enable envents from the years 1444 to 1821 AD, VIC would include the events that come after those dates, HOI3:BI would enable ww2.

hoi3wiki.com/BlackICE

I like the HOI3: Black ice mod because it added units like rail guns, SS miltia, and other units. I hate how generic the civilization series is when it comes to researching technology.

Like it would be interesting if you could negotiate banning Aircraft Carriers between nations,to enable the game to have a massive cold war of battleships.

William Gutierrez
William Gutierrez

Semi-correct. It was basically the home city system from AoE3 but a bit more. You had to unlock units and could unlock gear. When you went into a mission you would normally have to build a base, gather resources and advance through ages within that mission ie the usual AoE gameplay.

Then a few years later Microsoft released AoE castle siege which was a Clash of Clans clone.

Mason Rogers

Age of Empires 4 comes out.
<It's set in the Middle Ages because "Lol Age of Empires= a long time ago"!
<It's cartoony.
<No base building, players just start with castles that produce everything.
<Hero units are important. You can unlock them with micro-transactions and are treated as a selling point in the game.
<Ages are removed from the game as too complicated.
<Only resources are food and wood. Both are aquired by capturing "resource points" on the map.
<No campaigns.
<No random maps.
<Game modes are all designed to be MOBA-shit.
Basically I'm imagining Dawn of War 3: Medieval edition.

It's been almost a decade since I last played the game, so I can't remember there being anything wrong with it, besides some balancing issues with the expansions, like how the asiatic nations "leveled up" differently from the vanilla ones, but I never played multiplayer so it didn't bother me. I also didn't have a problem with the card system, which I hear is the main complaint against the game.

I want this to be good, but Microsoft being involved just destroys most of the hope I have for AoE 4.
Relic with it makes me think that it will be a reskinned Dawn of War 3 at best, or a Company of Heroes 2 jewing attempt at worst, selling you commanders or something. Either way, it will probably lose its identity as Age of Empires, and I swear that if there are any hero units in it I will fucking firebomb Microsoft and Relic.

Andrew Hill

except the hero unit(explorer) wasnt crucial to combat, they were more for early game boost and were more or less useless late game aside from some abilities they get they by no means decided who won a game

Eli Cooper
Eli Cooper

I don't have a problem with hero units, after all I kinda liked Dawn of War 2, but in AoE I feel its more about war waged by common people, rather than an extraordinary individual leading them.
I never played 3, but are they available to produce in every match? The ones in 2 were only in campaign and editors, so I didn't have anything against them.

Adrian Gonzalez

Explorers are a starting unit along with the initial villagers.

ageofempires.wikia.com/wiki/Explorer
You only get one at the beginning of the game, and it's mainly an over-powered scout that can build a few buildings like an extra town-center or a trading post. They do extremely low damage to Settlers and Villagers, again to make him more of a scout that can build, and less of a unit to harass the enemy.

Dylan Jones
Dylan Jones

it will probably lose its identity as Age of Empires
Going by the last two AoE remakes they probably will keep the original feel intact. Most likely it'll be turned into a cash-cow with nobody playing it by the end of the month.
I swear that if there are any hero units in it I will fucking firebomb Microsoft and Relic
I wouldn't mind having heroes so long as they aren't wc3 with abilities and shit. Something like renaming units and giving them unique portrets, like the ones in Knights of Honor.

Nolan Rogers

Looks like a scout/sniper, with an ability to kill a single special unit, or upgrade it to kill a single unit, and not the "Press Q to delete armies" kind which were present in DoW 2 and 3. At least in DoW 2, you had to train the commander to turn it into the rape machine he can become.
That's the kind of shit I was talking about, having a commander being a base unit with better stats like the ones in the AoE 2 campaign is fine by me, and being able to name the units is always great.

Wyatt Campbell

Just wanted to be sure of what you meant, bro. Pretty much nothing changed between AoE 2 and the HD Edition besides the graphics, so it seems to me rather odd to think it as a remake.

Anyway, keeping the feel in a remake/remaster isn't an issue, precisely because so little changes gameplay-wise. But it's way harder to create and balance a game from zero which feels like the previous ones, specially since none of the original developers are involved in the project. Unless they give up on adding any new gameplay features and just settle for permutations of what Ensemble did.

I would not be surprised if any in-game imbalances are resolved by either 1. making a new unit that promises to resolve the issue and releasing it as DLC or 2. continually pumping out overpowered DLC that gets nerfed after a few months.

I'm pretty sure that after shitshow that was DoW3 most people responsible for gamedesign were purged.
I even bought it from key site for 20 bucks just to make sure Relic fucked up this hard.

Not like anyone here is interested in anything else but regurgitating stale memes and opinions.
I tried to convince people here to play a FREE beta for DoW3 just to have a more intellectual critique of its systems.
Instead people called me a "shill" and returned to spout MOBA MOBA MOBA when it was hardly the cause of many things that were wrong in it.
I suspect threads after release will not differ widely from this current state, making it hard to discuss its features just like CoH2/C&C3/RA3/WC3 were at release.

Just imagine the retardation of such a setting within the frame of an AoE game:

you play teutons
It's a "defend the wonder scenario", protected by tiers of towers that you gradually tear through
you don't gather resources, instead you capture some dumb farms for food and some lumber mills that automatically generate food and wood
no mining because having more resources is 2complicated and "need more audience" and "muh balance patches" or some stupid shit
you focus on creating a single heroic figure with some teutonic knights as elite backup, the rest of your army are cannon-fodder tier spearmen and archers
no siege units because muh rush and i don't want to anger the wide audience, army variation also 5complication4brain

Man, I got angry just envisioning this shit. Even if it is mediocre I pray for this game to not fall for moba memes.

DoW 2 was a garbage as well
DoW 2 was garbage as a STR. Nobody argues that.
But the solo was a "skirmish" game if you go by fa/tg/uys names (squad based real time action rpg scripted thing), that did have a good entertainment value.
It's was a shit STR, but it wasn't a bad game.
Unlike CoH2 and DoW3

Isaac Rivera
Isaac Rivera

It was ok, but it was dissapointing that the battles were so small in scale compared to the previous game. Relic already had CoH for small scale combat, there was no good reason for them to essentially make CoH in the 40k setting when half the point of 40k is how over the top everything is.

They've given away 50% off vouchers already just to get player numbers up.

Ryan Edwards

It's not bait. I've put a few hundred hours into RoN, and a few thousand into AoE. RoN has innovative mechanics but only one works well, the city. Attrition, Spies, infinite resources, the lack of focus on a chronological period makes RoN a dumbed down version of AoE. Macro is made stupidly easy, and micro is completely pointless.
