I guess that's partly because he obviously has more informations then we have, although looking at how disappointed he was by the Patch maybe he is too much relying on others in that regard.
But imagine things like a huge season Pass for AoE4 with introducing severall small Civ-DLC's, big Tournaments with external Sponsors.
Maybe he is just hoping for huge Patches and a big Sale.
I doubt Nili is that delusional that he thinks AoE4 in the current state is able to keep up with AoE2, so either there has to be big things coming, or he is just holding the flag for the sinking ship till his Tournament finishes.
Yeah, perhaps he has more info esp about tournaments. Talking with Masmorra he didn't know what the current Sale of the game was, so I wouldn't assume that. On the other hand, If I were a big outside commercial sponsor I would really think before going for AoE4 with the current state of the game. But yes I agree that in order for AoE4 to get back on top is needs significant changes and improvements rather than keeping up. I myself think the things needed are way too much and I don't see them all happen (might be wrong).
That's interesting. How do we know that? Can you share a source, please? Thank you.
