Age of Empires 2 DE short Survey

Hi friends from AoE 2. As some of you might know, I am doing a survey related to the game in order to write a research paper intended to be published in a top tier international journal. I already have more than 400 answers, and the survey has been answered by some pro players like TheViper, ACCM, Sebastian, Capoch, Dogao and Sobek. I would be really grateful if you could answer it, so I get more data.

Thanks to the entire community for the good reception of this survey!

Welcome to the forum. And a top tier international journal publishing Aoe2 research paper. That’s some international level recognition of this game. 11

The survey is only for people who play online I assume?
The second question ask about ELO, for someone who never play online that is an impossible question to answer.
There is no “Play (mostly) single-player” option.


In summary,

I’m not frustrated when my Knights are being converted by Monks, because I count Monk as Knight’s clear counter, and I should have been more careful (faster to react) against Monks. And I’m quite excited when I convert Knights with my Monks, beucause I find it a fun, niche mechanic for my average playstyle, which weighs a lot.
