x-packs make me feel like ES is still trying to perfect their games, and still cares about public opinion. They also keep people interested in the game.

Though I than He - may longer live
He longer must - than I -
For I have but the power to kill,
Without--the power to die--

Well, an X-pack can add to the game, and I bet that if the game succeeds (and it will ), ES will wanna "milk" some of its success and make an x-pack.
I'm sure the game will be good when they make it, but after a year of playing, adding something new wouldn't hurt.

I think with very little foreknowledge of the game mechanics, it's hard to decide for ES whether they should be making an expnasion or not, let alone what the theming is.

Bernardo? OMG? U R A TIME TRAVELER!

Anyway, an expansion pack is better than a 500mb download methinks. You can't 'patch in' another culture. ES is going to make an expansion because the game will be successful. A lot of it is about making a profit so they can make more games.

Well this is a pleasant change from the typical "When r u gona put in teh portugalz X-pac!?!?!?!?!?~~lololoroofles."

It's pretty stupid, nonetheless. Do you play AoK, Bernardo? Would you rather play with, or without Conquerors?

Tell me crazy or whatever you want but technology is upgrading very fast specially in the Computers' stuff, well I know they're going to make an expansion, however I still think it would spoil it, because they've only missed 2 important myth-believng cultures: Chinese and Meso American, and I know they would commit the same mistake as they did with AoK:TC they gave Mayans and Aztecs siege weapons, swordsmen, etc. WHAT'S THAT?

Chinese could have siege weapons and all that stuff but what about Meso Americans?

That's why I think the Game would be spoiled.

If you think that AoK was "spoiled" by the Conquerors X-Pack then it's hard to see how ES could take you very seriously. That is a pretty radically minority opinion, you realize.

i loved the conquerors and i want a x pack for aom even tho it would be so far away and we shouldnt be thinkin much of it.. but in conquerors giving mayans and aztec... champions and things lower then that looked so fake... they didnt have any of that kind of armor : P let alone those massive seige weapons

Don't know about you, but I'd pass up realism for fun, balanced gameplay any day.

!?

ES is a game company, they are here to make money; a x-pack will make more money. Therefore x-pack will come if game makes a profit (which i'm sure it will).

So you have a irrational position.

Patches don't make money but spend it. (X-packs spend money also but sell the product to retreve that amount spent) [I don't think anyone has bought a game because it had a good patch. Usually patches suggest problems with games that should have been fixed before hand. I.E. bugs]

----------

Now when your refering to power, is that in-game power or some other type. If in-game, huh? They aren't broken civs (such that everyone plays them and nothing else). Siege is there to balance the game. History in games are subject to gameplay balancing Cause real life isn't fun, it's life.


Also you mentioned something about it's ok for the chinese to have siege. You know they are the ones that developed the first Treb's.

Not something is fun relism other and stupid things other. (I'M NOT TELLING STUPID TO ES GUYS) For example it's fun MUs we know they are Myth and not exist that's OK it's fun. Turks had cannons we know it that's realism, but MAYANS AND AZTECS USING ONAGERS RAMS AND TREBUCHETS?!

WHAT THE HELL'S THAT?

I know it's balancing but what form to balance, then why didn't ES guys save tanks to the Turks?

Expansion packs are great and they add exciting new elements of gameplay that you can't get from just a patch. New civs, techs, units and other stuff that add to the replay of the game. As for the Mayans and Aztecs obviously it's historicly inaccurate but who want to play as a civ that can't knock buildings down efficiently. The meso's were also important to history so they should be included in the expansion it's just that you have to make them playable and since they were behind the rest of the world tech wise they need to balance unhistoricly. They could have not included them but then the expansion pack is less worth it and ES makes less money, possibly causing them to stop development of AOM in the first place, because they wanted a "real game"; would you like that, would you?
