If this stuff works without bringing new bugs (EsocPray) it will be a huge improvement.

If you download the public preview you can also play against (but not as) the African civs in skirmish.

I find many interesting things in beta version, including 6 new natives, 7 new merscenaries, 15 new maps(some of which have maritime trade route! but unfortunately dhaka is also a new map named niger delta. I don't wanna play it xD).
Anyway look forward to the new dlc.

How did you get Darfur? I can't see it in the map list or any other African DLC map for that matter.

Doesn't that heavily nerf otto on no-tp/no-water maps, where they are weak already anyway? What are you supposed to do with all the starting wood then?

The maps are all included in the map sets so you can get them at random or if you navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\AoE3DE\Game\RandMaps and update the standardmaps.set file you can remove all the non-African maps or even just leave a specific map in.

See the water trade route on Pepper Coast:

Does the water route give substantially more resources/xp? It should, given the vast superiority of maritime trade. Anyway, great to see this implemented finally.

Does anyone have more information whether this gives any actual incentive for water play? The trade posts seem to at the coast, rendering an actual navy potentially unncessary. In general, I could imagine that ships taking the trade route are "flagged" in the players colors and only yield resources after completing the route, allowing the enemy to intercept with raiders.

No idea how this plays out gameplay wise but a land TP line used to be one of the only ways land could "keep up" with a water eco (while still needing to contest water).

Giving water access to a trade route themselves seems like it just buffs an already imbalanced part of the game and complicates trade monopoly.
to achieve the perfectionist's ideal: a state absolved of any and all imperfection, necessarily assigned by and because of observation. it's too late to avoid entanglement. then, following acceptance, distress at having the incorrect imperfections.

Yes but don't forget Hazza and me have been spending the past 2 months nerfing water in every possible way. The water trade route is only here so that people can't accuse us of bias

in fact it is an interesting concept if the meta was not greed water wall 10 tc in all the games, so this concept does not appeal to me in our current meta, if the meta was less focused on passive play, maybe I will be excited to see these new things

and as callen said btw, it will be necessary to really nerf the water suddenly on these maps at least cuz here it will be only 3-4 civ playable on these map

I hope the nerf to the Spanish gold is a mistake. They now give 360 instead of 400 as the card says

Hmm interesting how nerfed water is going to be. As a weak water player myself, I don't mind
