Patch 1.02 for Age of Mythology is the second update for the game. It introduces several balance changes to the game to make competitive gameplay fairer.
Patch 1.02 - fixes an exploit, some balance concerns and a couple of ESO issues.
- Fixed some possible timing exploits.
- Scenarios where the "Ulfsark" unit is forbidden no longer allow Ulfsarks to still be
created from Dwarves or Gatherers.
Unit balance adjustments
NOTE: Save games from versions 1.00 and 1.01 will not be affected by the balance changes. Recorded games from versions 1.00 and 1.01 are still supported and will replay as before:
- Odin now gets his hunting bonus. The actual change was to increase Odin Villager and Dwarf hunting rate from 10% to 20%.
- Thors Pig Sticker improvement now affects hunting rate. The actual change was to increase hunting rate from 10% to 20%.
- Lokis Ox Carts are now weaker instead of stronger. The actual change was to subtract 80 hit points from Loki Ox Carts.
- Raiding Cavalry have 10% more Pierce and 5% Hack Armor. This should let Norse counter archers more easily in the Classical Age.
- Norse Longhouse now costs 110 Wood instead of 130 Wood. This will let Norse make more Longhouses.
- Isis Obelisks now cost 10 Gold instead of 5 Gold. This should prevent Isis from making quite so many Obelisks.
- Egyptian Barracks now cost 75 Gold instead of 50 Gold. This will prevent Egyptians from making quite so many Barracks.
- Ancestors now have 140 hit points instead of 180 hit points. This makes the God Power a bit weaker, but will also affect Mummy Minions.
- Hippikons now take 20 seconds to train in Classical. They remain at 15 seconds in Heroic and Mythic. This should make it harder for Poseidon especially from having such large cavalry armies in Classical.
- Helepoli now have -15% Hack armor, occupy 1 pop slots, and have -50 hit points. This should discourage the "all Helepoli armies" in Mythic.
Network and ESO fixes
- A fix to help address the stats 2,4 error has been added.
- Changed the input and output chat text color to white for easier reading.
