random topic: since each civ has their own techs that they don't have...

talk about certain techs you wish or know a civ could historically and/or reasonably have.

for example:

armored elephant for egyptian..come to think of it, in aoe egyptians had iron shield (a hidden tech! which is also the prerequisite for armored elephant in which they should reasonably have?) but they didnt have bronze shield?? in ror egyptians had no shields.

or how about greek chariot? although the greeks never used them in battle to much extent due to the rocky terrain in greece nevertheless they were still used and in fact you can see them being used in the glory of greece campaign intro video

roman guard or even ballista tower? ES bothered to make the architecture of such in ror so i see why not have them?

Wheel and Artisanship for persians, the perian economy is way too weak.

Catapults or ballistas for phoenicia, giving them an ok land defense in islands DM.

Wheel for persians indeed. Persians had chariots in battle so persians should really had had wheel

Eles for Rome. Frankly, I hate having to do legion rushes. I almost always use scythes now. (Why not? It's fast with trample!)

eles for rome?? that doesnt sound reasonably or realistic even so if romans adopt eles from the macedonian greeks, carthage or the persians they probably lack eles in italy and also wouldnt likely be able to control them..but owell...

Catapults (i'm not asking for H cats...yet) for carthaginians.

Engineering for Shang (i think that's more important than ballistics and doesn't enable Ballista tower).

Artisanship and Craftsmanship for Persians.

Sorry for going offtopic but: Temple (no techs) for macedonians so they can train a healing unit.

Wheel for everyone.

The Rome Guard/Ballista tower graphics WERE used for the mirror towers in the campaign, at least.

Broadies, fire galleys, and cat triremes for everyone.

This is very odd. The one civ that can smash priests like no chariot could is the consensus worst civ in the game.
