    It's not my fault I live on the other side of the ocean. One day I'll be back.
    And look at all the fun they had with just wine. Maybe it was that they were so much more skilled… maybe we should go back, learn their techniques and then apply them to present-day raw materials?
    Hey, it's free, for a definition of free.

    But Adobe released CS2 for freebies IIRC…

    Why exactly does Poland expect to be in Age of Empires 1? :crazyeye:

    And they make appearances in a few of the campaigns in 2, even if they're not technically a civilization in it.

    Although in AoE 2 they kind of left out pretty much all of eastern Europe except for the Huns, which I thought was a pity. (I heard thye were apparently thinking of adding some eastern Europeans like the Russians or Magyars into for the expansion, but decided not to)

    Well, Western Europe's civilizations were Dark Ages Barbarian tribes that eventually became countries, so make of that what you will.

    True, but I always felt like they were thinking more of the Goths who sacked Italy and all that, rather than the blokes who ended up in random parts of eastern Europe.

    Well, the Goths, Teutons, Vikings, and Huns all have the same flavor (referred to as "Eastern Europe" by the game) if that counts for anything.

    I think the Vandals would be the closest to the Poles.

    See where they originated:



    See where they ended up:



    Classic Poles.
