Already I am doubtful that there will even be DM in AOM (i will explain why in a mo) or if there will be how will it go?

I am doubtful because i notice AOM is veeeery different from AOK in the way it shall be played (i am not saying it will be worse, on the contrary imo it will be better for people like me) and this could sorta clash with the do's and don't's of DM :

AOM has god powers that are free and mythological upgrades depending on the minor gods you choose. You get them as you progress in Ages and choose a minor god. However in DM you (usually) start in the highest age possible with all upgrades already granted.
Does this mean you would also have to choose minor gods beforehand and get all god powers straight away and will be able to use them in an apocalyptic fury of god-like powers clashing together (gotta admit that sounds pretty cool but very impractical imo). I think this would mean there wouldn't be god powers/mythological improvements in DM games.

without their diff god powers and myth improvements to set them appart wouldn't the 9 factions sorta resemble one another? this would imo make DM not so popular in AOM because there wouldn't be nearly as much variety as in normal games.


I understand i may be (and probably am ) wrong in my veeery long ramblings about DM . However i greatly want to know about DM in AOM so pleeaseplease if u can reply to inform me i would greatly appreciate it.

Good luck in finishing the game!

PS: GRRR @ not letting me get the alpha

my form was the most distinctive with my freakish name (trust me u do not wanna hear it... let's just say it begins with A and sounds like someone sneazing)

Thnx for help byebye

We don't yet know if there is DM in AoM. In fact, we know nothing of any gametypes at all, aside from that there is said to be more than in AoK.

I think that in DM if you start in the last age (very likely) then you will have to choose your gods pre-game; maybe like the pull-down menu in AoK, but for all four gods. Also, I think it would be cool to have random god choosing for an option (like all random or random minor gods; I made a post on this "radom god" thing, but no one cared ). I am sure there will be DM though, no matter how bad it may seem or actually be (like anything in ES games are bad ).

Thats my gold dollar on things.

Even without GPs or MIs the cultures are very different. (norse infantry build, empowering, favor gathering) I don't see why they should take out GPs (but some would be relatively useless (prosperity, rain, great hunt, animal magnet, dwarven mine, lightning bolt), and some might be too powerful. There will be lots of units in concentrated areas to be smashed by Lighning Storm, Meteor Showers, and Tornado, as well as screwed over by Curse and Frost. Earthquakes would level the concentrated houses and clumps. Nidhogg's could be taken down by swarms of archers, Son of Osiris by lots of military units.

And most MIs would work, but Valley of Kings looks a bit too good for DM.

"NOMAD!"

I'm not the only one here who has seen the light! Sveet!

I'm not at all sure how DM would work in AOM, seems impractical but they might find a way around some of the stuff.

Archaic deathmatch seems like good "couinter-measrue"

IMO The ages are a lot closer together in AOM so it won't be really annoying if it plays more or less like imperial in aok (mythic in aom i think)

PS: hehe my sneaky reply brings this topic bak to number 1 MWUAAHAAHAHAHA Now ES can't miss my question

Sure they can-- Archangel could just send around an email to all ES staff saying "ignore any thread made by Wagamuffin at AoMH!"

I can't remember where, but I am almost 100% certain it was confirmed that DM is in AoM.

Let me try and find the source of that...

Note the 'can't remember where' bit. It might just turn out to be a concoction of my imagination.

Though I was pretty sure on that.

TKO_GeNt> Hey whats up bruce...Hey Charlie! just wondering about whether or not Deathmatch will be a major part of the Age of Mythology world and do you think rushes will be able to work in AOM ....and do you expect AOM's server to be better than www.zone.com ....
+Bruce@ES> Death match is in . rushing still happens, but not too early. We have hopes for our server...

From the may chat with Bruce Shelley.

Yeah i would guess the norse will probably excell, because of the whole faster buildings, soldiers that can build, etc...

Also Fimblewinter would mean that your enemy would lose almost all of his or her vilies, and as far as i know, when u lose all your villies in the middle of a DM when u have used up all your other ressources.....bye-bye to u

I'd be very surprised if DM was in the Alpha. Its going to be quite a beast to balance out properly.
