omg I didn't remember that 11, that's so true. What a load of crap they told us time after timeThe devs are the same guys who lied and said "the units were on stand ground" when people noticed shitty pathing for the knights in the first gameplay demo of DE2. They can't be trusted. We'll be lucky if we get any notable improvement in the next 6 months. But that won't stop people from hosting tournaments on this trainwreck platform.
Scripter never improved pathing - he only improved the efficiency of the code, but never changed the actual pathing visible in the gameWhy do you guys expect them to fix pathing when they used the Genie Engine? They are literally competing with a genius like scripter, would be strange if they actually succeeded. DE is actually a lot better than what I expected, even if it's not better than the patched original game for me.
ok, but using/not using Engines/Frameworks/Algorithms - those are decisions that help u to deliver your product from <Quality/Time/Cost/...> boundaries, not customer requirements.Why do you guys expect them to fix pathing when they used the Genie Engine?[...]
When they can rehash the same buggy mess with few new cartoons and rake in even more sales, why would they bother actually investing resources into it.how they treat their customer.
You are not alone.I haven't been able to see if any of these issues were adressed with the hotfix since that update someone messed up my download so I now have massive lagg, even in single player (the game was already running poorly for me, but now itgot significantly worse)
Maybe they could just try and "improve" ranged units in DE, mess that up and then the game will be balanced with both knights and archers bugging out fighting one another, makes it a bit more even.This has a high priority for the players since the balance in DE is completely off due to the terrible pathing. Devs, plz fix.
Not necessarily. I would bet MS will eventually stop supporting DE and it will still be quite buggy at that point. Then, some great person will make a DE mod on voobly (like WK) and everyone will go back to voobly. Whether this happens in 6 months or 6 years is the real question imho.... Not to mention, D.E. is the present and the future of AoE2 , even if many people do not wish to accept this. So , fixing DE is iportant
