I sincerly hope that never happens. That is truly a game-breaking step too far even for me. One of the key things that seperates AoE1 and AoE2 from AoE3, AoM and some other RTSes is that AoE1 and AoE2 don’t have autoqueing or the ability to create batches of units. The whole mechanics and skill of the game would change if there was autoqueue or batch creation. It would take the DEFINITIVE out of the game. It would not be the definitive version of AoE2 anymore it would be the OVERHAULED version of the game … which is completely different and NOT what DE is supposed to be about.
AoE1 and AoE2, similar to with Starcraft Brood War, is a micro intensive RTS game with as much emphasis on the real time aspect as on the strategical aspect. Autoqueing or units being made in batches would take away the classicness of the game altogether. Like I said, it would no longer be AoE2 Defintive Edition it would be AoE2 Overhauled Edition … please no.
Just make a data mod for autoqueing if that’s what you want and then the rest of us can avoid playing it.
And, indeed, everybody has a right to suggest features that they feel are best for the game from their perspective … BUT everybody also has a right to speak out against them, too!
