Haven't been here in a while

Well, after playing the Titans a bit, I think that it is sort of a disappointment. I'm not talking about the Atlanteans; I think they're great. The campaign's good enough as well, and the scenario editor's improved, and the Titans add a nice twist to late game strategy.

But the original civilisations have barely been touched at all. Sure, they each get 2 new technologies and the titan, as well as some balance changes, but apart from that, they're the same. If you're playing the Norse, for example, you're going to play the same way as you always have. There are no new units for you to build, no new minor gods, no new age for you to advance, and not even new bonuses for the gods. If you don't plan on playing the Atlanteans or using the scenario editor extensively, there's almost no reason to buy the Titans. I'm sure many people are multiplayer-only people who like to stick to one civilisation...Well, the only reason they'd buy TT is for the titan or to play against the Atlanteans. You play the Greeks almost exactly the same way in both the expansion and in AoM.

These were just my 2 cents, and please feel free to add comments.

Give me money, and I might feel generous enough to say something kind.

explain to me how building a Titan with the old civs isn't a major change...

So what? They gave you a whole new civilization to use, be happy! Lets see, they could have simply upgraded the existing civs and I'd have been all for that, except that 3 more God's means more variety in opponents on ESO! Which, considering the dominance of Norse, is a good thing!

Cheers!


The following statement is true. The previous statement is false.

People are already starting with their old civs especially for rated.

As for they not having been touched, I guess the more you screw around the more problems might emerge, moreover the present changes are quite good.

More than civ changes, the Titans brings some gameplay changes to the game which would be more fun.

Correct me if im wrong but I have this feeling that alanitans are going to be way overpowered, im working on some strats for mp right now. I think im going to play Alantus for a while.

They aren't overpowered. Sure, it all sounds good, but they do require a good amount of micromanagement.

Like Set it takes some microing, maybe not as much. I just notice how uber the econ is once you hit heroic. The horse archers make for some nice rading, thats a real plus.

When you will compare the econ with other players, it is almost the same and remember the 25 villie limit for Atlanteans.

In classical, although Turma's are nice for raiding, they will die against RC and Hipps and Spearmen.

If you think they are OP, get on MP and play some games.

Each civ now gets a free myth unit every new age. That's a big change right there for the old civs. Not to mention all the differing numbers for indiviual units, a few new techs and not to mention a Titan.

I'd say being able to build TC's in Classical is a pretty drastic change for all civs, but I agree that new units for each one would've been very nice.

To me the biggest reason to buy the Titans is the ESO improvements.

Man, if they'd give more points for victory and less of a loss when playing Random Gods, that would encourage ..... yada yada.
