Wondering the whereabouts of my minds, it suddenly hit me a kinda stupid but interesting question nontheless...

Remember how the units in AoK and AoK:TC spoke the languages
of the civ they where from?

Just wondering then, is this gonna be the case for AoM?
I just think that'll be amazing, extremely old dialects
're-born' by AoM.

This wasn't the case in AoE though, where we had the famous: "Rogan?" and "Wololoh"...Whatcha all think?

Probably the same reason why they didn't do it in the AoE, hard to find someone that speaks that?(guessing)

Yea, kinda hard to find people who speak ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Norse. It could happen, though..

I say bring back "Rogan"!

ES probably figure the average gamer can't figure out the difference between gibberish and ancient languages anyway; but I bet they'll do their best to come up with historically accurate voice sets.

They can read the ancient scripts... I don't know if they can speak them though. I imagine they'll be able to find Greek speakers, but I don't know about Egyptian or Nordic (if that's what their language would be called).

If nothing else, some cheat unit must go Wololo!

The closest you can come nowadays to old-norse is Icelantic - VERY silier to forn-norweigan/the viking language.

Greek is still spoken. ()
(Ok, so it might not be the exact same greek as it was then, but...)

And egyptian too.

The Greek language is still around.

As for Nordic.....its a toss up between Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish, and Danish.

Now, for the hardest of all: Ancient Egyptian. The language itself hasn't been used for centuries, however there is a dialect spoken in Egyptian Coptic Churches (a Christian sect) that many in the historical field think that it might be the language that most closely resembles ancient Egyptian.

I believe its "wolooloo"

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.
