A long letter I wrote for Relic about what makes AoE2 great [long read]
I doubt I'll actually send them this, mostly because I don't think it would accomplish anything. But it was fun to write anyway. As of the present moment I haven't written the concluding paragraph yet.
I recently learned that Relic will be having the privilege of developing Age of Empires IV. That's really awesome, and I'm very excited for you. I've been waiting for this moment to come for a very long time, and now that it has, as a lifelong fan of the franchise, I wanted to write to your studio to share some of my thoughts. I hope you might consider them as you embark on this amazing project.
What I mostly want to talk to you about is Age of Empires II, the most acclaimed and most popular entry in the franchise. As a lifelong player who's familiar with the game on both a casual and competitive level, I want to share with you my perspective on what made the game is so beloved and so replayable, in the hopes that it might help you to infuse some of that special something into your own game and stay true to the legacy we love.
I'll try to be as concise as possible without sacrificing detail, but there's no avoiding this being a few pages long. There are six things I want to tell you about: 1) simplicity before excess, 2) hidden mechanics, 3) subtlety of potency, 4) balance, 5) immersion, and 6) external considerations. Let's get started!
Simplicity before excess
It's terribly important to remember that AoE2 never sacrificed simplicity for excess. Each civilization has at most two unique units and two unique techs, and otherwise shares a tech tree with all the other civs. It was not like StarCraft, where each civilization was entirely different with almost no overlap. A good question is why is that appealing? Why would we want 20+ civs to be mostly the same? Why isn't that boring?
Consider chess: two sides, black and white, who only differ in one way: white goes first. They both have pawns, rooks, bishops, knights, and a queen and a king. But the game's popularity has lasted ages because there's so many ways to use the 16 pieces you start with.
That's one of the most important things I can tell you: the mechanics of AoE2 made a startling variety of strategies possible with just a handful of units. The appeal wasn't in the number of different units you could choose from, but in the number of ways you could use the units you were given. This was a point on which Rise of Nations (a game I truly loved) unfortunately fell short....your options for how to use your units were somewhat limited.
Despite the superficial "sameness" of the civs, there is an amazing variety of options at all stages of the game.
In the feudal age of AoE2, you have militia (which you can choose to upgrade to man-at-arms), spearmen, archers, skirmishers, scouts, eagle scouts, villagers, towers, and two types of wall, not to mention galleys, transports, fishing ships and fire galleys. That's 15 extremely differentiated pieces to work with in just the 2nd age of the game. From there, you can choose from 7 ways to upgrade those units, including armor, attack, range, line of sight, and movement speed.
If the game ended there, in the Feudal Age, it would still have been incredibly fun....even though there's only 15 pieces total to use among all 20+ civs.
Of course, Age of Mythology had fewer, more strongly differentiated civs, and it was a great game. There's more than one way to lay siege to a castle, as they say.
My next point is perhaps one of the most important: a tried and true way to make a game that works for both casual players and competitive players is to fill it with subtle mechanics that casual players can ignore but which competitive players can work to master.
Let me give you a very famous and not-so-subtle example before I give you a list of examples from AoE2. Have you ever played the famous Pinball game, bundled with the Windows operating system for over a decade? To someone playing it for the first time, it was simple: two buttons, left and right, and try to keep the ball alive. And it was really, truly fun.
But for those of us who had a bit too much time on our hands and kept playing, it soon became apparent that there was so much more to the game: there were actual missions and goals and rewards attainable in countless ways if you practiced your aim with the flippers and paid close attention. The game actually possessed an immense wealth of detail, initially hidden behind a facade of friendly simplicity.
Let me give you some examples of how this phenomenon manifested in Age of Empires II:
- On many maps, each player starts with a small herd of deer near their base. You didn't have to use it at all, and most casual players don't. But, if you wanted some extra food at a low cost of wood, you could go build a mill next to it and hunt the deer. But what's more, if you were really trying to save resources and optimize your economy, you could gently guide the deer into your town center with your starting scout and avoid the need to build the mill at all. It's difficult to do, and takes practice and focus. It's a subtle but valuable mechanic.
- There are two types of fish in the water: "deep fish," found far out at sea, and "shore fish," found by the coast. Most players don't know that fishing boats gather almost twice as fast from deep fish: it doesn't say this anywhere in the helper text. It's subtle, but again: for players who care, it's there to take advantage of. It's important for different parts of the environment to have latent, non-obvious pluses and minuses.
- On many maps, each player starts with two wild boar near their base. You don't have to use them at all, and many casual players don't. In competitive matches, however, these two boar are crucial, but they must be lured to your town center....they're not easy to kill, and when you're new it takes quite a bit of practice to master without frequently losing a villager. Moreover, it's possible for a scout to attack a boar and provoke the boar into following it across the map so long as the scout stays within 3 tiles of the boar at all times. It takes a lot of practice to steal someone's boar from across the map while keeping your own economy moving forward and without losing the scout. It's yet another subtle, optional mechanic that can easily be ignored or not even noticed. One wonders how long it took after the game's release before someone even noticed it was possible.
- In the beginning of the game, before Ballistics is researched, it is possible to move your units out of the way of arrows, Neo-style, if you control them very carefully, and thus gain the upper hand in engagements. Needless to say, most casual players are unaware of this. But competitive players abuse it every game.
- If you are attacking downhill, you gain an advantage, and if you're attacking uphill, you have a handicap. Again, a crucial hidden mechanic casual players are often unaware of.
- There are four formations possible for your units, and while at first they seem decorative, they can in fact be abused in terribly useful ways: for instance, the split formation can be used to cause your units to suddenly move apart, leaving space where once they stood, and is crucial for dodging mangonel shots. Unknown to casual players, but an essential technique to competitive players.
Subtlety of potency
A related point is what I would term "subtlety of potency," by which I mean that the different technologies and units in AoE2 are very useful or powerful in ways that may initially seem modest. Here is a series of examples.
- In the Feudal Age of AoE2, there is a tech available at the blacksmith called Fletching. It gives +1 attack and +1 range to all ranged units, as well as to towers, and +1 attack to Town Centers. Frankly, that doesn't sound like a lot. It sounds like it can be easily ignored. And yet Fletching makes the difference between winning a battle and losing it. The range means outranging your opponents with careful spacing, and that 1 extra point of damage is crucial: it could be the difference between dealing 2 damage and dealing 3. Increasing your damage by 50% is a big deal when you have 5-10 units shooting at once. And that's not immediately apparent.
- In the Castle Age, there is a tech available at the stable called Husbandry, which causes your cavalry to move 10% faster. This seems altogether useless. How could that possibly win you a fight, you might be tempted to think! But that 10% is just enough for Cavalry Archers to stay ahead of Knights while shooting at them, or conversely for Knights to catch up to Cavalry Archers and massacre them. It's not a big difference, but it's just enough to gain the upper hand.
- The wood-gathering upgrades at the Lumber Camp are another excellent example. The first increases wood-gathering speed by 20%, the second by another 20%, and the last by 10%. Doesn't sound like much, but it adds hundreds to your wood income early on, and thousands or even tens of thousands in longer games. It's subtle, but it adds up.
- The same goes for many other techs, unit bonuses, and civ bonuses.
In the proper context, every bonus should be worth having, and every unit worth using, and every tech worth researching, but no bonus, no unit, and no tech should ever be entirely unstoppable on its own. It is tremendously fun to overcome an enemy's superior technology with your own superior play, and by the same token tremendously dissatisfying to look at your options and know that some of them are altogether pointless no matter the situation.
This brings me to my next point: an essential feature of AoE2's military side was the carefully perfected relationships between its units-- the balance. No one unit could win on its own. Any army composed of one type of unit is easily stopped. But diversity, and careful synergies, made for unstoppable forces. Combinations like monks and mangonels, cavalry and hand cannoneers, or archers and halberdiers are much harder to stop than 40 of the strongest unit on its own.
Every unit should have its place, its distinct strengths and weaknesses, and its use cases. And each unit should be able to bend slightly outside its assigned profile: while skirmishers are designed to kill archers, they also do well against spearmen. While rams are designed to take down buildings, they also are very good at absorbing archer fire and redirecting it away from more vulnerable units. And so on.
These relationships even show up in the unit costs: spearmen counter scouts, and so they cost more food than wood, so that the defending player cannot build up too much more food than the attacking player who is investing his food in scouts. Likewise, skirmishers counter archers, and cost more wood than food, so that the defending player cannot build up too much more wood than the attacking player who is investing his wood in archers. This level of meta-consideration to the game balance makes many strategies viable.
Having discussed ad nauseam the finer points of the game, I'll move on to something more straightforward and less mathematical: immersion.
Immersion is the word I choose to describe how absorbed we've all been by the feel of the world of AoE2 for almost 20 years, despite its simplicity. Why is that?
There are a few things, I feel. The first is graphics. While the graphics of 1999 have no claim to photorealism, what they can claim is vividness. The green of the grass, the blue of the water, the imposing height of a castle, the darkness and solidity of the forests, the extremely distinct appearance of each building, the beauty of the different architectural sets, the visceral feeling of a volley of arrows or massive siege shot traveling through the air towards your units, the wind in the sails of your ships, the flash of swords: all these and more made the game stand out. Everything was so clear and bright. Nothing felt fuzzy or faded or grey. Nothing blended together or lacked identity.
And yet as you upgraded units, their appearances stayed similar enough that you could have guessed the order of their evolution if you saw them side by side. The Paladin looks like a heavier Cavalier. The Arbalest looks like a more advanced Crossbowmen. But you could never mistake one for the other or forget which was which. Everything had such a well-defined and distinct appearance.
Hand in hand with that was AoE2's music. The score is one of the most nostalgic sounds in the world for me, and calls any fan back to childhood memories of endless battles. The music was just right. It wasn't intrusive-- it stayed in the background and pulled you in further instead of distracting you. It could loop endlessly and you wouldn't even notice because it so perfectly matched the forests and fields and medieval armies travelling through them in search of victory. Minecraft and Diablo II are other games which I feel nailed this. But it's very difficult and I can never blame someone for not getting it quite perfect. After all, if music were easy we'd all be in the business.
Age of Empires III did some great things with immersion, as well. Its water and forests were just beautiful. The realistic building destruction it introduced was, in a word, orgasmic, and I am confident most players would love to see that live on. On a related note, if I could see somewhat more realistic physical contact between units engaged in melee combat, I for one would probably die of happiness. It certainly wouldn't hurt for the feet of horses and humans to have more realistic motions matching the terrain they're on, either-- it would help to make the map feel more physical, more tangible, to see them working harder to walk uphill or trudging slowly through shallows or mud.
It all contributes to the immersion. Where Age of Empires III and Age of Mythology fell short in replayability had a lot to do with sluggishness of control....you couldn't manipulate the units as quickly and in so fine-grained a manner as in AoE2, and in the long term that's costly, because the player is less engaged in directing their armies. The player should only ever feel limited by their own ability: never by the game itself. This is a very, very important point. AoE2's units can be microed very quickly and carefully, and this must live on if AoE4 is to earn its place among the stars.
My last point has to do with what I termed above "external considerations." The Steam edition of AoE2 allows mods, and this is one of the community's biggest fears: that this won't be possible for AoE4 on the Windows store. There are countless mods in the Steam workshop, go take a look! From graphical changes as subtle as adding a grid overlay to bigger ones like massively overhauling the terrain, to data changes adding entire new civs, new campaigns, and new mechanics, the modding community is very important both to AoE2's replayability and to its comfortable feel, since we can adjust many features it to our own preferences. I don't know what I would do without the "smaller trees" mod.
Similarly, a powerful, versatile, and user-friendly scenario editor is absolutely essential. This has long been one of AoE2's greatest assets.
Another major external consideration has to do with multiplayer. As you may know, AoE2 is currently played on two platforms: Steam and Voobly. While Steam is more beginner-friendly, it is in fact Voobly that has the far better integration: it allows separate ELO ratings for 1v1s and team games, it allows ELO limits on lobbies, it allows you to ban trolls and block other players (a major problem on Steam), it allows unlimited spectators, it has a special overlay to give spectators extra information about the game they're watching, and so on. These are all really important considerations that are very important to us. Please give this aspect of development as much consideration as any other.
- The water battles in AoE2 were not quite as dynamic as its land battles. Some extra mechanics on water that might make it more nuanced and interesting would include currents and winds that tug at idle ships or affect their movement speed, anchors to stay still, and the ability to change how heavily crewed a ship is (thus impacting its speed or power) by paying different amounts for it.
- Not sure what era you're going for, of course, but the airplanes in *Rise of Nations *fell short in that you couldn't micro them. That was unfortunate, since they should be among the most exciting units to have high speed fights with.
- The ICBMs in Rise of Nations were a bit much.
- Bridges. Being able to build bridges across rivers would be soooo cool. But they have to be destructible, too, and units on them would have to die if they collapsed. :D
- For the love of god no microtransactions. Please. This is holy ground.
- No card system like in AoE3, that was not good.
- Diamond maps, not circular maps. This is pretty important. You can't have a proper grid in a circle. The AoE2 tile grid for building placement is part of what made the game feel clear and not fuzzy. AoM felt far fuzzier because it was a circle. The walls in AoM were built in odd directionally vague patches instead of stretches of distinct 1x1 tiles like in AoE2.....and that's fuzzy and bad.
- Whatever you do, don't dumb down the economy. We Age players play Age instead of StarCraft for a reason.
- Hilarious and enjoyable cheats are a key tradition in the Age franchise. We must have our supercars and caped hippos.
