These events got worse and worse. Now you have to own the DLC before you can do any challenge at all. Nice way to force players to buy the DLC :rofl:

While this Event is active, everyone will be able to play as the Civilizations contained in the popular expansion – the Burgundians and the Sicilians! This is true for all players, whether you own Lords of the West or not. The Civs will be playable in Multiplayer or Skirmish matches, and we’re including a fun group of Challenges specific to the Civs alongside some super cool rewards

It’s here!!!

But the truth is there are lots of crash after this update, whether PVE or PVP, based on my own experience and the complaints of players around me.

This update has about killed my desire to want to mod this game.

I am very displeased

Bug: Team Empire Wars Ranked only lets you ban 1 map in 2v2 instead of 2 maps (when disabling 3v3 and 4v4 options). Random Map Ranked still works properly

Oh my god!!! Thank you, devs!!! This is β– β– β– β– β– β– β–  amazing!!! Yay!!! I can’t believe it, I get to play the civs for free!!! Yay!!! I’m gonna play AoE II right now and I won’t ever stop. I don’t have to pay $10 for two civs!!!

Still great.

Hi guys, so I just completed the second challenge to win as the Burgundians straight after having signed in to Xbox Live to get the first one. The Event Mods however is showing the Coustillier statue as only β€œTemporarily Unlocked”. How to make it permanent when I already completed the very first challenge?

Since the update all the unit skin allocations I had setup in the dat file of my Data mod have been moved about or something, thus most unit/building skins I allocated no longer appears, no sprites appear at all.

(I am sure this will happen oce more upon the release of the next DLC as well)

Can anyone aid me in how to copy / rectify my data mod to work with this new update.
(Appart from me having to individually re allocate each and every unit to a sprite ID)

I made a copy of my mods dat file prior to the update, is it possible to use AGE, in order to import that data to the new Updated data set?

Like a copy/paste option?
A tutorial would be most appreciated.

I read somewhere that it’s the hun’s civ jingle.
