The Outback Octagon II pits 32 of the world’s best players in a free for all tournament. Taking place over 5 weeks throughout April and May 2023, players will initially be split into four groups of 8. From there, the opponents for each player will change as the Swiss-system begins to...
Solo queue will have less queue time, players will play more because they dont have to wait their firends, they just grind like in 1vs1.
The system is so bad actually that there is bad experience for teams and Solo. Team games is a machine that forces players to go away of age of empires 2, iam...
Again the "paradox" argument.
1/ Build a game
2/ Add wrong game mods
3/ Say no to adding the right game mod because it will "Split the queue"
Following your words : we should merge everything? ONE queue for everything?
Do you seriously believe that people wouldn't quit minute 2 in SoloQ if...
It will not add a queue time...
It will lower queue time in soloQ, does I need to explain that?
I dont know what will happens for the teamQ, maybe it would be longer, but games way better. There is 0 interest to match solo players vs team players.
Ask any player :
Do you want 2 minutes of...
There is one example that will convince everyone :
Memb was playing Team Games only before DE, I remember he had a lot of games.
After DE he almost play only 1vs1 when he dont cast. Is it because he dont like TGs anymore?
SoloQ will instantely improve the number of games. Day 1 everyone...
Team games is what age of empires games does better than any other RTS.
if we focus on what the game is strong at (Team games) and give a normal experience to players. Just a -normal- experience. it cant be bad right?
Right now, playing vs pre-mades team is the WORST thing that you can...
This is one of the common mistake :
Casuals are elitist players, they often have a deep knowledge of the game and they are passionnate.
There is a huge barrier between starting age of empires for the fist time and playing casual games.
Spoil : new players are getting kicked out of casual lobby...
Being a "niche genre" does not mean that you cant grow in term of playerbase.
Also If we look closely the success of AOE in term of popularity, it's big. This is NOT what a niche game looks like. Not at all.
Every gamer in the world played once in his life an age of empires game.
A : Let's fix the game with good game mods!
B : We do not have enough players!!
A : How can we have more players if we dont fix the game first?
B : We dont have enough players!!
A : Can we try to think about why aoe has low amount of players maybe?
B : We dont have enough players!!
A : There...
100% true, but it's not just microsoft mistake.
We have to be honest :
We wanted Age of Empires for us ONLY, we wanted a game that feet the fanbase expectations. We all have friends to play with, we all knows some good player to get carried by. So it's OK to have broken team games, because we...
My point is that the potential of age of empires games is big. And we do not reach 10% of that because there is no game mod that speaks to the average player.
About Voobly and the "small amount of players" : I do not agree.
Voobly was working for random team games because we had some sort of...
Things went crazy. Sorry for this, I didnt expect that.
My question was simple : Is SoloQ a good idea for AoE2 (And AoE4)?
I play all maps (Open, semi-open and closed ones) So I underestimated how much the community was split about this.
I Do think that SoloQ is what age of empires games...
I agree that maps is an other problem*
I think that, ranked teams should maybe go to lobbies, and rankeds random teams with matchmaking, it has always worked fine to play on voobly without vocal or anything. And it can be added into the game like a lot of games in 2022.
I watched my voobly...
I never did that (Encouraging people to "ditch"). And i never changed anything.
Is it possible to act like adults :laugh:? https://twitter.com/TheSniper_AOE/status/1563115252417368064
In 2006 when I was 16, I was like in some sort of Holy war vs AoE3. But I was 16. How old are you? XD
I think that AoE2DE player base is very low compared to the reputation of the game, daily twitch stats and also all the big events we've had.
Comparing AoE2de to the playerbase of AoE3 and AoE4 (a game that came out completely broken) is complete denial.
I have an explanation for this ...
I do not want to start any drama, but it took 2 months to remove "animation cancel" for AoE4.
Attack move bug is still there since how much time for AoE2? :laugh:
Just joking, I stopped playing aoe2 because of this stupid thing, I will love the game again if they fix it.
I kinda love some...
