Fields of Blood

Programmer Josh Farley shared a little insight about AoW2's engine and how blood is realistically rendered on the tactical battlefield:
"The blood is AoW2 is actually part of the complex particle system, so it's "real" drops of blood you're seeing when units get struck. However, rendering those drops onto the 3D terrain would have been a complete performance killer on low-end machines (besides the likely ratings issues), so was never implemented."
