So I was looking for a nice strat game play, and downloaded demo of this game to see if its any good. Right away I noticed similarities to AOC. This game is AOCx10, ive been playing this night and day, and must say that this is the best strategy game Ive ever played. Dont think that there is one strat game that comes even close. Single player is super immersive, even though learning curve is a bit steep.

I went back to look at Crusader Kings 1, to see if Chris mightve picked up his ideas from it for AOC. They are very similar.

You cant compare this 2 games since there is a big diffrence in a how "deep" is the game. And yes, I played Crusaders 2, its a superb game of course, but that "deepnes" I was talking about makes many people who are just looking for a fun and easy going game as AOC make choose AOC. Plus multiplayer community on AOC in way better, since is based almost of being friends and some good going competition, which takes it peak during "May of Conquest" which clousure of many this year's event are going on in these days. Thats something Crusaders dont have and never will...

So yes, it would be great to have a more deeper version of AOC and keep the good online aspect of the AOC. To start with, on mobile online version of AOC should have been able to play all maps... Thats something I really dont like about AOC as it is right now...

@Karlas your complaint of AoC maps on mobile devices is not an AoC problem. The issue is most mobile devices don't have the memory capacity to run the larger maps. However, there is a mobile device that does have the memory and processing power to run the larger maps. It's called a laptop. :lol:

Crusader Kings is definitely a great game - one of my favorites too :kg:

AOC is a multiplayer version of a game I played back in the days on my Atari ST :roll:
It's called Caesar (not the famous) one. Here some impressions:

aha, so the secret is out, Chris. Im guessing that Crusader Kings probably heavily borrowed from that game too. Karlas, i was comparing 2 games for their initial fun factor, and the fact that pretty much all of AOC mechanics are in CKs. I loved AOC2 and its various features, but I was IN love with Crusader Kings 2 after a day of play. Although it seems that it's not a fun multiplayer game. It's too bad that AOC took it's turn to where it is now, but at least Chris is making money, cant argue with that.

I don't think AOC3 is much different to AOC2 anymore since I added all the legacy features (a while back)? What's still missing from AOC2?

Nothing is missing. I just think that it wouldve evolved into a much better game if it stayed on PC platform, and maps on mobile platform are really horrible for my taste.

Agreed, the Android version isn't great! The problem is, it was difficult to work around the limitations (max. image size) on Android when I get started. What about the Desktop version? I believe there are several improvements such as automated map upload that are added that make things easier? What else isn't there in the Desktop version?

Klam AoCIII has never left the computer (PC, MAC, UNIX, Linux) so it an be played there if you're not happy with the mobile version.

The Desktop offers more realms to play in: (Standard, Casual, Clan, Mobile, Tournament and League).
The Desktop also offer more maps and better maps and scenarios.
It also has an improved map editor and up and downloading tool.
It also have the tutorial, demo game and rules just a click away.

The main thing that I miss from version 2 that version 3 does not have. Is when I review the past turn moves I can only see my own and any captured enemies.
I really miss not being able to see everybody's individual moves. :(
