Scenario: My friend and I play vs AI in 6v6 and 4v4 games. Basically just the 2 of us vs and with AI. We run the game in adequate PCs, (one with 16GB RAM and another one with 12GB). Video Cards are fine and we’ve played a LOT of AOE2:DE games before with these PCs. We’re both from Southern California and use the westus2 server (Ping is green at around 120).
Issue: 70% of the time, one of the AI’s on both our team and the enemy’s team will get stuck on Dark Age. The AI just will not go to Feudal even if I give it 500 food.
Today (27/03/2020) my friend and I played a few games.
First of all he couldn’t find my lobby (resolved through direct invite)
We had to exit out of 3 of our 6 games due to ridiculous command latency (lost 3 vils, houses not built until 90 seconds after command given).
On our last game (2v3, 6 player size Arabia) two of the three AI never left dark age but the third played at the set difficulty (moderate).
Does anyone know whats going on atm? Why did the other two AI not get over 800 score? They were utterly useless.
Thanks for your help guys, keep up the work on this great game!
