Personally, I was really hoping that rts3 was going to be historically based, like the previous two AOEs. When I heard(read) that RTS3 was a mythological game, I was not very pleased. This new mythological theme is a dramatic difference from previous ES games. So much so, that it is no longer of interest to me; I like history, not mythology. Therefore, I am not going to buy this game, because it is not interesting. (I don't think it will be a bad game).

Also, from what I have heard about this game so far, I hope that Ensemble is careful enough to evade being sued for copyright enfringement from blizzard, microsoft, westwood, and the people who made war orcs. Although, from what I understand, stealing others ideas is common practice in the gaming industry %cough% empire earth %cough%.

Personally I don't really care whether a game is historical or not as long as it is fun. I do like the way previous Age games have done the civs though. I did'nt really like the three civs in Starcraft, although I did'nt mind the fantasy units. I hope that within the three cultures there are sub groups.

ES didn't say they'd use orcs. Those are not mythological. I think it'd be a great game and it'd be interesting to learn these cultures' beliefs and to have calamities and mythical creatures and such stuff. And we'd get some really interesting scenarios too!

Mythology is a part of history, so this game is historically based.
