meh, his is just overrun by twg and gsg memes, desu
That looks awful
>lets take garbage from AoE 3
>and some units of AoE1
>and just copy preexistent civs design gimmick
Why the fuck did microsoft had to close fucking Ensemble
and why the fuck did they choose african kingdoms?
Also the multiplayers maps looked awful, they are essentially copies of other maps that were already there
Im convinced that the sole reason behind microsoft joining the video game industry was to destroy it and push the US gubbermint agenda.
AoE games are similar to classic RTS like Warcraft, C&C and Starcraft, but have more complex macro (5+ different types of resources, trading, etc), are somewhat grounded in realism and history and have longer games (with advancing through different ages rather than everything being solved by a rush)
only dumb civ are the malians
berbers are super-saharan mediterranean psuedoarabs and the ethiopians are pretty close to the middle east as well, and the portuguese are obviously a real civ
shit I obviously meant werent a kingdom, they were a republic so they dont count in the kingdom power rankings, they are also phoenician colony so they are not even native africans
Last time I checked, Portugal was never an African Kingdom.
They were the first Global Empire (and the longest-lasting one) and colonized African shitskins, Brazil and parts of Asia.
Yeah, they even have female military units now.
30hp and 0/0 armor though
Mali is ok. The Berbers are redundant. Portugal existed in medieval times but didn't get prominent until after this game's timeframe. Ethiopia is ok I guess but its heyday was over.
Could've went a step further and named it african empires.
> It was considered the largest man-made structure lengthwise and was hailed as the largest earthwork in the world. It is larger than Sungbo's Eredo. It enclosed 6,500 km2 of community lands. Its length was over 16,000 km of earth boundaries. It was estimated that earliest construction began in 800 and continued into the mid-15th century.
>he cant afford the expansion!
>people like AoEII and AoM right?
>well even though they're 15 year old games and the fans who still play them have enjoyed their untainted games for so long
>lets add some DIVERSITY!!!!!!
You faggots said just to ignore SJWs!! They can't change things!! Your games will be the same!!
They're changing games from a decade ago now.
Hey fags can we make some steam games shortly after the expansion releases?
Can't wait to BTFO /v/ with the new civs
I haven't seen the trailer yet.
Are their buildings made out of mud?
What's wrong with adding more mythologies to a game about mythology? As long as they don't preach about social 'issues' and shit, is cool by me.
I'm waiting for them to add some latino american mythos.
>Dat special Snakepit map
HOLY SHIT, WHAT THE FUCK BARBECUE!!!
New expansion is shit. All the civs are incredibly overpowered.
Portugese dominate water/teamgames thanks to free carto and 10% health. Etheopians will have 13 mins fc and be able to kill people right when they click up.
Malians will have infantry with +8 pierce armour. They are going to be almost walking teutonic knights not even hc's will do significant dmg. Civs like japanese, goths and vikings will be useless against malians.
Berbers can always catch up against enemy fleeing galleys and run away. They can basically decide when to engage or not. Also 20% cheaper kts really? They can go 3stable fc fucking retarded.
Just because you made the FE civs shitty doesnt mean you overcompensate and ruin the game with 4 overpowered ones.
WOW GABEN THIS SURE IS A HOT DEAL LET ME TAKE OUT MY WALLET NOW
I'm going on my fairly basic AoE2 knowledge here:
FC=Fast Castle (getting to castle age as quickly as possible)
HC=Hand cannoneers (guys with guns)
FE=Forgotten Empires (last expansion).
Age of Empires 2 taught me all I know about European history, time to learn African history
W-wow, 2 whole dollars in saving i could... buy 4 gumballs witht hat. T-thanks gaben
I have pic related in my Steam inventory, but would like to play AoE 2.
Now that it's on sale, would anyone like to trade video games?
Apparently they removed the bundle all together.
how have they had 3 expansions and still not added in the greatest freest country to ever exist
apparently it has a "fully voiced" campaign, so there is at least some effort behind it.
the website lists it as "50% complete", I don't think they have announced a release date yet
he put his face on his videos for awhile in an effort to be as horrible as most video game streamers but his fans told him he looked retarded so he stopped, and also has incredibly annoying donation readings and spends 20 seconds every time someone subscribes thanking them in a condescending pointless way
he also has a patreon begging video that he disabled ratings on
i hate him but i still watch him because there aren't a lot of AoE2 casters
One last game, got completely rekt last time
Join on steam Lobby name
KEEP IN MIND YOU CAN STILL PLAY WITH THE ETHIOPIANS EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE BOUGHT THE NIGGER EXPANSION
glad you noticed me senpai
Man he stopped posting videos in a while, I was also watching FeAge, his huehue accent was cute
america wasnt even invented yet in AOE timeline, its full of indians and jungleniggers atm
Kek, this guy was golden, don't know if he is from this thread, he made my day
Could not handle the banter, I even thrown some cheeky walls at his gold spots
you do know that you can play the expansion even if you haven't purchased it right
they give one civ from each expansion you don't have to play and they rotate them everytime
right now you can play for free as the ethiopians like I do>>315539638
I can't join you now but add Ayerev on steam and I will surely play the next days
Since the new expansion, the old campaigns (at least the William Wallace campaign) is bugged as fuck. Not only, I can't watch the first and last cutscenes of the first mission, can't watch the last cutscenes of the others, but I can't even play the last mission! What the fuck they did with these old campaings?!?
The AI in the original game was really easy, even on hard. ("Hardest" would cheat to get free resources.)
The Forgotten has completely new AIs (not sure about HD though), which are actually challenging and try different things, including tower rush and fast castle strats. I think they have just tweaked these AIs even more.
Cysion, the Belgian guy, has been working on it for years, making the AI lure boar to their town center and all kinds of other things that human players do.
How's Portugual in this game? I'll probably pick it up sometime just to play as my weird uncle nation.
