Hey all,

When aok came out, it created this amazing community. I still remember the day when aoc came out. The excitement to add new civs made random random games much more fun and it took frank on frank games to the new hun era. Aoc created a glorious rebirth in the game.

They added 3 new civs a few years ago with the African kingdoms. Why is everyone still only playing aoc? Do the new civs suck? Is it a technical reason that the new civs don't work on voobly?

Are the new civs any good?

Are there plans to add them to Voobly?

I think it would lead to a whole new era of AoC. If they shake up the formulas and add new civs it would probably bring back alot of players. Atleast a tiny mini new era.

Not sure if its worth the effort, but it does seem like this game is still kinda active.

Even on Steam it looks like no one is playing the new civs. They probably released them a little too late. They should have kept releasing new civs and game changes every few years instead of waiting 10 years.

Adds to the imbalance of the game. IE more chance to end up with a civ that is over powered in one regard or under powered in another.

The expansions are available in the mod section.

People can't be that bothered to learn how to use them and are generally too scared to be shown up. IE to go back to being inter/rook with these new civs that would take months to master.

But you can try hosting your own games and get people playing them. Also the expansions and the game wasn't really meant to be played in post-imperial with DM resources, that was more like a easy mode for single player games etc. So much unbalance in the latter stages of the game.
