I have this problem aswell. The servers are basically 50-90 ping higher than they are USUALLY are (pre-patch/maintenance). Not as extreme as in Rise's case, but still a problem. Having 250+ ping for most servers except EU servers. Also its not always the the server pings on the "lobby browser"...

I would be fine playing again. So i would get 1 point instead of 3 points now or how does that work? If he gives AW i mean. In that case i'd really like to play again, but in the correct map-order. Also if @Dfx2 can't give another AW for any reason in the later stages i'd rather play it again...
I guess i didn't read the rules as thoroughly as i thought i did. Apparently HC_4 Arabia is the 5th map to play, not the first, while also the homemaps have a specific playorder. @Dfx2 Up to you whether you want to give me an AW, or we replay the set.

Screenshot of your AoE2 DE server pings:
Sure, they are a bit underwhelming at times. From what I've seen a lot of people don't know how to properly use hand cannons anyways.
In the St4rk clip above, or rather the VOD it seems like he using them in a big ball with line formation, barely microing at all, while also making all 30 shoot...
Kinda wrote this on a whim so i apologize for any grammatical errors or inaccuracies.
Alot of good things has been said in this thread so far.
I can't help but notice that not many people bring up the 8-minute queue, which i think is essential to KNOW about, and I'm not sure how well-known it...
