None of the above.

1. A new main menu and loading screen. Right now they look real unpolished and rushed.
2. Team bonuses back. It's what keeps MP alive.
3. Better naval units and balance. Right now, Naval MU's are way too powerful.
4. A new civ such as the Aztecs, Atlantis, etc.
5. All new patches and ES/player made maps.
6. A better manual. The AoM one sucked. The AoK one was the right way to do it.
7. Unit tweaking, ie: make Ulfsarks slightly better, etc.
8. Add more easter eggs.

Think that's it...

Actually, I think that having Aztecs in the game would be rather interesting. It would be nice to choose between Quetzalcoatl (One of the sun gods), Huitzilopoctli (god of war and protector of the sun), and Tezcatlipoca (arch-nemesis of Quetzalcoatl and god of darkness). I just wonder how they'll gather favor, though. Praying at a temple is one thing, but human sacrifices would be rather,...well...neat.

As far as myth units goes, I had an idea for an almost uber-myth unit in an age later than the mythic. You know, something that could almost be a one unit army, but could be taken down by about one-two heroes. The only twist is that they are expensive and you can only have one at a time. For the Greeks it could be Cerberus, for the Norse it could be Jormungand, the Midgard Serpent. I just have to think of one for the Egyptians. Maybe it could be a different myth character for each god. Hades gets Cerberus, Poseidon gets the Kraken (like Clash of the Titans), and Zeus gets a bigger Cyclops. I don't really feel that it would be unbalanced because, even though they are strong, heroes can still bring them down. To make things even more interesting, it could be something to the effect of "heroes get bonus damage against a myth unit, but a particular hero gets a bigger bonus". This basically means that Heracles has a bonus against Cerberus, Jason against the Kraken, and Oddyseus against the Cyclops (I know Polyphemus is already in the game, but one can dream.)

The only problem is, I don't know how that bonus would work out when playing Greek vs. Egyptian or Norse. It onlly really works with the 'named' heroes. Well, enough of my rambling for now, I just had to put that idea out there.

I only have the demo, but I hear the boats are pretty much the same no matter what cilivization. If this is true, id liek to see it changed, I was looking forward to water combat....

And the kraken....its supposed to be huge, but its only like as long as a boat...whats up with that? if thay can be changed without messing anything up too much, id like to see it.

#'s 1, 4, 5, and 6 sound great...not an avid fan of water maps, you see...

I like the norse/gold/building one, tho.

At least 3 new civs

Aztecs---Gods mentioned above


I will run to the library and do some research on the Celts. (I feel bad, I am a historian, I should know some of there old myths).

I think that AoM has plenty of 'TEAM' bonus's. Ceasefire, Bronze, Eclipse etc etc. A lot of those can be used much more effectively as a team then as well.

I want them to do a civ that we know MUCH about, like the Egyptians and the Greeks... But do we know enough about the Aztecs do to a civ about them?

Can anyone here think of at least 9 myth units that they could have? And gods?

i say more water maps and make atlantis based civ who excel at naval battles but are only mediocre on land. just a thought. Also I agree on 99% bug OUT.

@ williamthebloody
sacrifice is perfect but who do they sacrifice? your units would be too expensive, maybe they're infantry could bring enemys down to 1HP then they would become prisoners like the units in the campain. but that would be simalar to the norse... I KNOW! they would have 0HP so your enemy could capture them and delete them or bring them home if they were the azteca too, but thats kinda hard...
guess your right, kinda hard to think of MUs for the azteca, hmm i'll be working on this...
@ Richard the God
Good idea about the elves, i was thinking very fast archer but that could work.
@ everyone who wants atlantis
who would their gods be? at least with the azteca and celts some research would give you all the MGs and MUs you want

Idea for Aztecas:
When you fight you get a 50% chance to take a unit as a prisaner at the temple. Then a priest could kill him for favor.

I as a bit disipointed about the Nore mythology, well, I saw A BIT, not total, don't get me wrng or anything...

I say, get elven archers 4 the Norse, they need archers of some kind. They have ballistas, and throwing axemen, but it would be nice to have JUST a LITTLE archery invulved.

Also dwarven warriors would be good. More mythology 4 norse i say!

About new civs? That would be pretty cool. Like, eh, prehaps babolonians, they had Baall & Nebo 4 gods. Aztecs- good idea.Inca? Many open door ways 4 ES.
