More tension, more preparation, more quality.
More preparation lol.What changes to me? nothing, what changes to aoe2 community well, no viper... and many more experts milking aoe4 and stopping

Do you even listen to yourself?
Who are the "then new crowd" and "aoe2 maxis"?The only thing I was super annoyed with is the then new crowd dunking on aoe2 maxis for speaking critically about aoe4.
Where are these people now.
I've actually made screen shots of these people from the various aoe4 twitch chat channels. Guess i should do some cross checking.
Anyway it's pointless talk. aoe2 has no steady income stream, so I'm surprised it has any tournaments at all tbh. Especially at the prize pools it is at.
What do you mean by it has "no steady income stream"?
Also, in terms of tournament prize pools, AoE2's prize pool to viewership numbers ratio is notoriously low. At least, since the release of DE.
Is he though?mbl's stream yesterday where he says he's already grinding to qualify for Red Bull. And that's a top 5-6 player in the world
Oh I don't struggle.It's ok, the President of the United States struggles with basic economic concepts as well
(Not addressed at you masmorra, I'm just answering the potential sc2 question)It's not uncommon to see a StarCraft 2 tournament with a 100k prize pool pull maybe 10k-15k viewers.
He asked me who not what.Also maxis is not a word. Saying "we are" does nothing to clarify what you are trying to say.
Indeed that is what I meant. Relative to viewership numbers, AoE2 prize pool levels are quite low. SC2 is a good comparison, as you mentioned.You mean in a situation where the prize pool is the numerator and the viewership the denominator?
Then I 100% agree.
(I initially understood a "low ratio" to be something bad)
AoE2 has exceptionally good viewership numbers for the prize pools it gets.
It's not uncommon to see a StarCraft 2 tournament with a 100k prize pool pull maybe 10k-15k viewers.
You give AoE2 a 100k prize pool, you're getting 60k-70k viewers, as evidenced by Hidden Cup 4 and Red Bull 5.
What does his earnings in 2018 have to do with his current shape?^^I could see that only if you're looking at it through a very short term lens (i.e. when he started working a 9-5 and had less time/motivation for aoe). But from 2018-2021 he was 5th, 4th, 6th, and 9th in terms of prize money. On open maps I'd take him over anyone not named Viper/Liereyy/Hera (and pretty even with Hera). He's insane in TGs. Him being top 10 (in terms of talent) is not even a discussion honestly.
Trolling or not reading?So your opinion is more valid than the lists of the top players in the world?
