To be honest, it looks like it's going to suck pretty much. Apperently they never visit our forums. Instead of improving gameplay and realism they make it like all other games. It looks like kind of civ city rome or even worse!

Ah well, I was planning to finish my mod anyway.

I think it looks like some browser game

And Rasteve, like TDA said, there is already a thread about it

Maybe the gameplay wont be too bad, but I still hate the graphics.

Am I the only one who thinks the graphics are awesome? Then again, I love retro games/graphics. AoEO's gameplay might be something else though... from what I've read it looks like it's going to be quite a nice game however. Signed up for the beta, hopefully I'll get to try it out.

Oh and when I just logged in I got this kewl msg:

Sorry, I completely missed that thread!

Here are my first thoughts:

Pros:
- AoE has not been forgotten
- the next game returns to the most interesting age!
- the graphic style means that it won't look dated in years to come

Cons:
- It looks like a Facebook inspired game, which I think removes the competitive-ness of the current AoE series
- It appears that people who play it often are rewarded more (capital cities growing when logged out etc) - anyone play mafia wars vai facebook? Damn this makes it a real time-killer
- Those little cartoon guys killing each other takes the edge of the seriousness!


Note sure on what effect "quests" will have. Depends mostly on whether there is a editor to create your own stories.

TDA - better off locking this thread!

Seeing a bunch of cartoons killing each other kinda makes you giggle quite a bit.

Something to remember: always know where you're going, but never forget where you came from.

The Age of Chivalry is upon us! Visit the only wiki devoted exclusively to Aoc:H by clicking on the preceding link. Oh yeah, and it works with the HD edition, too--just make sure to get this first.

Of what I've heard there will be no editor or offline play
