Latest news

- Quinn: We want players to get to that strategy in a way that isn't limited by physical skill (reflexes/APM)

That's probably good news for aoe3 lovers. At least I love it, granted you never know for sure with game companies since they might just remove all macro mechanics and make units unmicroable.

Yeah it sounds like a direct dig at the sc2 style of apm rts which I can support. Most fans of the aoe franchise would say aoe3 is the most dumbed down mechanically and I love aoe3. I don't think they can, in good conscience, simplify mechanics more so than in this game so I'm not too worried.

when I read that, I thought it was bad news. To me it reads more aoe2 mass base building economy style rather than aoe3 or sc2 where unit control is a premium.

I think aoe2 is widely considered to be very hard mechanically?

its hard. However mostly becuase things like shiftclick dont work. Pathing is fucked up etc. aoe 2 remastered would be a lot easier even if they were to make the exact same game just with quality of life improvements.

Whenever I play it I'm content if I can keep up with macro against an AI thats bad and not even attacking me, not sure how much shift click would improve that since it just requires a lot of actions to macro.
