    Yep, the definitive rework made them a lot better in most cases.

    Based on some more "research" (i.e. YouTube comments), it seems like the triggers are bugged and some people report El Dorado is actually impossible to finish.

    I finished it (and got the achievement) so no. But it's been a while so maybe it's easy to meet a bug.

    Was it before 2018? And there are some triggers that bug out but don't make it impossible to finish a game, like Francisco de Orellana not changing teams when he's supposed to, but that doesn't prevent you from finishing the scenario.

    My Steam achievements say December 2017 so yes, it was before 2018.

    All the comments which say it's bugged are from 2018+, so yeah, perhaps some patch somewhere wrecked the triggers.

    I doubt I'll ever play this but it's interesting to see that the Hook and Cod Wars are included in the Burgundian campaign. You don't often see medieval Holland represented in games, that's for sure.

    More of the same. The campaigns are well done. Not really something you absolutely need if you didn't play the couple hundred hours of all other campaigns. For multi ppl are butthurt about new civs being op, if you want to enjoy them then hurry as nerf is obviously coming.

    They will fuck up poles if they will but probably that's what's coming. Or general western slav civ. Other than that... Some kind of ugrofinnic or syberian civ? Hard to say.

    ...ok, but what about AoE1 patches? There was less than 1 second of footage from AoE1 in that whole trailer.

    EDIT: It seems like they did patch AoE1 like 2 days ago, lol.

    Bohemians, Moravians.
    Also Wallachians/Romanians getting their own civ rather than nonsensically alternating between different civs in Dracula's campaign.

    Not really eastern europe, but Croatians would be a decent idea. Rebranding slavs into rus would make sense as well.

    Considering AoE2 campaigns span like a thousand years, I'm sure a passable Eastern European civ won't be very difficult to find.

    Over 1200 I believe. Starting with Goths in 394 and ending with the Japanese-Korean war around 1600.

    Also AoE3 gets African expansion and it will include the USA, very fittingly.

    They're getting more and more scummy with every new game release. Now they're charging two thirds the price of previous dlcs for just two new civs and no new architectural set.
