Like serously, the Civ / DLC isnt that new anymore, just nerf them already ffs. Spamming Knights / Cavs for literally free isnt going to improve the game experience.
am I supposed to be upset about this? I see a game that's reasonably well polished (i do admit that aoe2 DE was trash at launch), offers many new civs, tons of QoL features, tons of stuff for the casual player, server based matchmaking (rather than the super laggy p2p network on HD and Voobly), frequent updates for a low price. All of that for merely 22 euros. If you don't want the DLC, you can get the base game for just 10 euros (which has 2 free new civs anyway).
Aoe2 DE had the best value for its price of any purchase i've made in the last 10 years.
There are ways to counter this, think you just need to sit down and think it through.
I think it's worth thinking about this from a lower ELO perspective. Booming is way less perfect and attacking early isn't fun, so LELs will generally get swept by this sort of strat. Same reason as goths are OP at some ELOs.What are you talking about. If they go for castle and this expensive upgrade in early castle then you should either be way ahead in eco or have way stronger army and be able to do a lot of damage, likely both. In imp, their cav loses to any civ with fully upgrade arb casue they lack last armor.
So you saying i m a noob?I think it's worth thinking about this from a lower ELO perspective. Booming is way less perfect and attacking early isn't fun, so LELs will generally get swept by this sort of strat. Same reason as goths are OP at some ELOs.
I think it's a valid concern / complain, even if nothing should really be done about it
