For years on the Age of Empires II: Age of Kings / The Conquerors forums, I have seen many threads with people telling about how much they love the Goth's civilization, and that they are thinking of making them their civilization of choice.

Then they all find out one thing that is a small problem to some, yet devastating to many. The Goths have no access to Stone Walls or Gates! This is the main reason why the Goths have been written off as one of the worst civilizations in the game.

I understand that there are many players abroad who wish that there was different technologies available for their favorite civilization, but issues as such would be a break in game balance. I can understand the Goths not having Plate Mail Armor, or Siege Rams / Onagers, but no stone walls? That is just unacceptable. Every civilization in the game should have basic access to stone walls and gates, and the Goths are the only ones to lack this technology.

Possibly if they were granted the ability to build stone walls, they could subtract something like their +10 population ability in the Imperial Age, yet this is just a suggestion.

We, the undersigned, hereby petition that Ensemble Studios release an official patch to the game Age of Empires II: Age of Kings / The Conquerors, that will allow the Goths the basic technology of being able to build stone walls and gates.

This should not be an issue, as every civilization in the game should have the option to build a city with walls. This small change should have little to no effect on the issue of game balance. So I urge you all to please consider this and make the Goths a more widely chosen civilization for all to play.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Sincerely, The Age of Empires II Community
