Gajah Mada? If he's not of Indonesian civilization, then what civilization is he? I don't see Indonesia there.

[up] Malay.

The first two civs have been announced properly, Malay and Khmer.

The Malay are naval based, with quick advancement, a unique unit who is a fast infantryman for Zerg Rush shenanigans, and unlimited food from fish farms.

The Khmer Civilisation appear to be siege and elephant based. All the South Eastern civs get a new unit, Battle Elephants, and the Khmer specialise in them.

The other civs are Burmese and Vietnamese, details of which will presumably follow soon.

I find it weird that Gajah Mada is the protagonist of the Malay Campagin since Gajah Mada is an Indonesia national hero. The developers could have chose Hang Tuah instead since he's a Malaysian folk hero.

I'm kinda worried this will lead to newcomers confusing Indonesia for Malaysia and vice versa. Both countries take their culture seriously and don't like it when people confused their culture with another.

From what I've read, the way the Malay civilization was treated in this expansion was basically the Southeast Asian equivalent of the Mayincatec trope, since it featured Malays, Indonesians, and other ethnicities/historical civilizations in their designs (both of the campaign as well as the tech & military tree).

Something I've noticed. Whenever I put up defensive walls in front of my city, the enemy forces take them down almost immediately, usually by sending in more infantry than my archers set up in the towers can possibly counter against. And then when the towers are brought down, they (usually) retreat. On the other hand, they almost never do the same thing when I set up defenses around my castle (I usually play Regicide games). Why is that? :S

[up] I think you stuck on in an extra word there. tongue

Granted, the game is far from perfect. The expansions and patches haven't quite made enough ground in addressing the main flaw I see in it (that the factions just don't feel distinct enough gameplay-wise), but it's definitely a better game now that it was back when it was just the vanilla game + the first expansion.

Yep - they actually migrated to Hungary at some point where they first became vassals of the Hungarian rulers and later on assimilated into other population groups.

...if we're thinking of the same ethnic group, they were horse nomad type people who lived in Hungary up until the mid-13th century, when the Hungarian king of the time pissed them off badly enough that they left the country burning and pillaging everything in their way, just before the Mongols showed up for their own turn of burning and pillaging. Next king called them right back with privileges, as part of fortifying Hungary against future Mongol invasions.
