~The state of WoL: Where we are and where we are going~


When Wars of Liberty was born as War of the Triple Alliance, it served the purpose of representing a corner of the world often overlooked, but it eventually got bigger and it had to change its name to Wars of Liberty. That change brought with it new desires both for the modders and the players: it wasn’t just about representation anymore, but about giving players innovative and fun gameplay. At the time it didn’t matter if the bonuses were too extreme, after all, it was just a mod and if you wanted to take it seriously then you were better off playing Napoleonic Era anyway. The mod, though, grew up immensely: every day more players were interested in trying it and, of course, more and more players claimed the mod was not to be taken seriously. After all, civilizations had access to many abilities that broke down balance, leading to ridiculous situations where civilizations had units with huge damage, hp, numbers, etc. That’s when we realized the mod needed to be taken even further from representation and innovative gameplay: it needed to stand its ground in terms of design and balance in order to actually provide a satisfactory game experience for all players alike. So, for the last couple of years we have been focusing on that, we were doing our best to track down the most unbalanced issues, the biggest bugs, to tune down broken mechanics and to retouch some aspects of civilizations that weren’t too well designed. Right now, the mod is in a better shape than it’s ever been, the player base keeps growing and we even have a tournament going on, but we know that to be the Age of Empires III modification we want to be, we have to do more.

Sin ttulo 1

But first, what kind of modification do we want to be? What do we actually have to offer? I think it’s important to clear that up before I tell you where we are exactly and what’s on the future.

First of all, we want to be a treasure. That means we want to be a game people will find, years from now, and be amazed at how much there is to find out: the maps, the mechanics, the cultures, the civs, the cards, all the combinations, all the units, all the stories the game tells. We want a game that can truly take people through a journey and the only way to do that is with quality content that has enough depth on it and, of course, with having a lot of it to offer.

Nueva Idea:
Me parece que ya va siendo la hora de una Era Napoleonica:

Taringa.net

Tiempo para nuevos países y naciones ejemplo:
Suecia, Suiza, Polonia, Prusia, Dinamarca, Austria, Noruega, etc.
Además de una nueva era en el juego. Edad napoleónica. que se desbloquearía después de la quinta edad...

Que opinan.?

New idea:
It seems to me that it is time for a Napoleonic Era:

Taringa.net

Time for new countries and nations example:
Sweden, Switzerland, Poland, Prussia, Denmark, Austria, Norway, etc.
Plus a new Age in the game. Napoleonic age. which would be unlocked after the fifth age...

What do you think?

Perdón.!
No me mal intérpretes.
Si lo conosco a ese Mod. Lo he jugado. Y por eso mismo se los suguiero como el futuro para su Mod como una nueva idea.
Wol tiene mucho potencial para una era napoleónica.!
Deberian de reconsiderarlo. Asi como el Salón del Trono.
Se supone que Wol es un Mod hecho por los gustos de la gente y para la gente. Y si me equivoco háganmelo saber.!

Nota: Habrán sus mentes y no se encierren por quien fue el Primero quien encontró esa idea. Sino de Unificar y Expandir los ideales. Las ideas pueden ser compartidas. Y dejen a un lado El Egoismo y la
competitividad..

translation:

Sorry.!
Do not misunderstand.
If I know that Mod. I have played it and that is why I suggest them as the future for your Mod as a new idea.
Wol has a lot of potential for a Napoleonic era.
They should reconsider. As well as the Throne Room.
Wol is supposed to be a Mod made by people's tastes and for people. And if I'm wrong, let me know!

Note: There will be their minds and do not stay locked up by who was the first to find that idea. But to unify and expand ideals. Ideas can be shared. And set aside selfishness and
competitiveness..
