End of AoE2 DE and another remake of the game with actually better pathing, better stability, better water gameplay, less bug and hack, more architecture and unit reskin, better match making, better ranked as Hera suggested couple of months ago.

They said long time ago that AoE2 Cellphone ediditon would come so I’d bet on that one. Another thing that I think never would come is perfect pathing.

More people playing in hd than the players in de due to pathing.:rofl: And then add de civs to hd for sales.

Game client becomes open source and free to play, and pathing fixed within a month by all the talents around the world.

MS/FE now charges subscription for matchmaking servers.
