Oh me too for sure, even though I'll never have time to play it. "Just shut up and take my money" - as the saying goes

I finally tried CoE2. It's a neat game, but I hope the 3 will have a much better interface. Stuff like seeing that your commander is insane on the map, a better battle display (at least see how many hit points a unit has, like in dom if you click on the unit to inspect it during the battle), explanations of the icons (again, dom does that when displaying units).
And most importantly a minimap or map zooming. It's a real pain to know where you are in CoE2, and big maps are definitely out of the question without a map navigation tool.

CoE could really benefit from a proper tactical combat MoM-style. With its small, dozen-units-per-army scale it's, like, mandatory. And then it would succeed where Elemental failed.

I could place a chimp in front of a typewriter and the end result would be a better computer game than Elemental.

Man, this must be the worst botch since MOO3. Bad gameplay and worst bugs.

Aside from the minimap, all of that is currently there already.

Questions about the new project will work much better if they are comparisons to CoE2 than comparisons with Dom3. The only Dom3isms I see so far in CoE3 are some imports of graphics.
