This is a weird summary since you make it sound like AoE2 is basically dead, while we just recently had KOTD4 with 75k Prizepool (sponsored by MS and others) with finals having over 30k overall live-viewer-peak (over 20k on membs channel alone), an already announced 25k Prizepool Nomad Tournament sponsored by Microsoft, a 2k Showmatch GL vs WWP this week on nomad which had great viewer numbers and judging by previously posted Graphs AoE2-Player-Numbers aren't rly affected by AoE4 at all.1.-Aoe4 got released and most pro players and big streamers focused their attention to that game and recommended it, despite aoe4 can't defend itself given the poor quality of the product, aoe2 content got severely hurt by losing both the pro players and the content creators, there was tension and there is still.
2.-Viper left twitch for FB gaming and keeps playing aoe4 and eventually aoe2 on his channel, T90 also left twitch for FB gaming but he keeps doing aoe2 stuff, losing those 2 was the biggest impact on twitch numbers, hera went full aoe4 so the twitch numbers of aoe2 are comparable to 2014-2015.
3.-About robo idk maybe he is probably calling ***** to someone else kappa.
@Skittle As I said, Games like aoe4 live from ppl like you who don't care about money at all when buying them.
Imo there's a big difference between the 15/20€ for AoE2 DE and the 60€ for AoE4, because for 60€ you have higher expectations in terms of quality, also it's not a price where you invite friends to buy the game just for playing against each other from time to time.
Of course a game can cost 60€, but then it has to be rly good because it's definitely not cheap.
