I think they were. I'm sorry ES, but Alexander said it correctly when he said they look like plastic.

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.

Heh, I prefer the old art too, but to be fair the current art looks much more impressive in motion. They used to look more fiery, and now they look more like giants. I'll get used to it.

I think they should actually be giants - as in huge.

That'd be much cooler.

no offense es, but the old ones were better... i think it would be cool to have the major fiery ones attacking at night.... the new ones might look more like giants... they just arent as spectacular tho...

If u arent one of those scenario playin, black forest loving, drop-tricking, red ping, econ booming, WALLING, 0 gamer, WONDER BUILDING, incompleters, come to rated and we can have an AOE game like it is supposed to be played...

I think it would be cool if there skin would flow around their body, like lava. Also it would be cool if their flame got fiercer while they are fighting.

I don't really dislike their new graphic, but an idea:

They'd make it so that maybe 10 seconds they are like now, with less fire and then again for 10 seconds with more fire, that'd also look cool, what 'bout this?

Screenshots don't really do justice to some of the units in AOM. They really shine when you see them in full movement/motion in the game (or AVI) !

LOL, I'm really surprised to hear a question about a german football player from a guy from Peru which lives in the USA!

No, I'm not a fan from Werder (that's the club's name) and I also dunno if he transfered to Bayern.

But I'd really like to know why you're interested in that!

That's a great idea . By the way, anyone here has played or seen the coin-op arcade game called Killer Instincts? One of the characters that they have is called Cinder, and he is literally a walking, molten lava! His skin glows like the surface of the sun, with little, curvy waves of flames shooting off it! Really awesome looking!! It looked just like these: and


Another totally cool character that they have is an icy alien called Glacius, who can morph back and forth between liquid and solid ice (like in the film Terminator 2). Really spectacular looking when he does that! (maybe the ice giant in AoM should get a special attack similar to this?. I would definitely vote for it )

Real:
Just wondering cause he's, by far, the best peruvian player right now and one of my best friends when kids(we used to play soccer all the time in the same park)

I just kinda lost track of him after he went to Germany and I came to the US, that's all. I heard the rumors he was transferring to bayern...

I think they may have changed the art so that it was easier to put player colours on it, the old art didnt have any bands on its arms so you couldent tell what it was. Maybe the old art looked rubbish with player colours.

Yay! Well, anyway, Archangel is right... In motion, I'm sure the new fire giants look kool. Although to be honest, when it came to still art, I liked the old ones better, too.
