Competitive play not feasible on XL maps?

Many AOE-2 players complain about “the small maps.” (For me they are fine because it is the standard way in which AOE-3 players play and do not stop us neither small nor big).

The point is that maybe doing competitive on XL maps can attract AOE-2 players, making it a separate game mode in the ranked one.

I personally like to vary some times and the games are not a lightning war every time.

Some civs have to be checked in the early game, and that is hard on large maps. In aoe2 all civs are essentially late game civs. So big maps aren’t an issue.
