Rank is what defines your performance and what you are capable of.
For those who just want to play without worrying about it, the custom lobby is the way to go.
"If you play for elo, you're just a beginner" Ok if you want, I can't figure out the connection but ok. Hera will be happy to know...
Ah because when you are a streamer you have to let yourself be insulted? I don't know where you saw that, but my status as a streamer doesn't change anything for me.
And I'm not trying to scare anyone, I'm just reminding my friend Paint that he's starting to get nervous and I'm asking him to be...
Be careful how you express yourself to me.
If players don't want to make the effort to play 30 1vs1 to have an Elo that would allow them to make cleaner TGs, then their place is not in Ranked but in Custom Lobby.
So you really think that players prefer to have totally unbalanced games as it is the case now, rather than to make 30 games of placement so that their game experience is a thousand times better?
Bullshit, you just don't want to leave your comfort zone. Like the other one above who claims a...
The goal of ranked, whatever the game is, is to play for elo or rank. The goal is to play to improve it, to play with stronger players of the same level.
Not understanding such a simple thing is very serious.
The problem is there. If people do not understand that Ranked = Competitive and therefore performance the problem will not be solved.
If some people don't want to play 30 placement games and then have much cleaner team games, then they should be directed to the personalized lobby.
To lose 2 hours (and still it is to be proved) will dissuade more than one.
If some people don't want to play in 1vs1 to be competitive, in this case they can go to Personalized Lobby.
The TGs today are not balanced at all, most of the time nobody has the same level. As an example...
Don't forget that we are talking about a ranked game, in other words a competitive format.
If a player doesn't want to have to play a few 1vs1 to find his real ELO, then he can play in the custom lobby.
30 placement games is the minimum in my opinion. It's like in poker, it's on volume that we...
The most obvious solution for me, keeping the current ranking system, is to base ONLY on the 1vs1 Elo to form the TGs teams and then to make them win or lose Elo ONLY on the one reserved for team games.
And impose more than 10 games of placement before having an ELO.
For example at least 30...
The game is in a sad state unfortunately. I lost all taste to play it almost...
The soloQ Tgs is catastrophic. We find ourselves playing against 2K5s while having 1K1s in our team. It's a pure waste of time.
For the maps it's the same, I find myself playing Arena or Nomad 8 times out of 10. I...
In my opinion the only real problem in the AoE e-sport scene today is the lack of tournaments for semi-pro players.
I've been trying to do this on a small scale with the European Rumble and the World Rumble in 2021/2022.
If I can find the funds for 2023, I will personally commit to offer as...
It was a beautiful tournament and the production was extremely good.
But we have to admit that organizing a tournament on 2 games simultaneously on such a short period is not optimal.
For me as a caster, having to choose which game to show to my viewers was a real pain.
Also, having the AoE 1...
I'm happy to announce the return of the 8 mercenaries!
A concept that I try to propose sometime to allow the Age of Empires 2 community to have a great time during a Weekend!
For those who didn't know about the first edition, let me remind you the concept!
