It may not be “common” in 1v1, but in 4v4 games the chances are someone will disconnect. It’s almost as if the game is just a lottery to see which team will get the disconnecting player.
The game can’t handle even the tiniest disruption in any player’s connection.
After experincing disconnecting players in my team all day, I’ve just tried playing a couple games with my friends, and in both games my game froze and disconnected around 20 minutes in. When it happens to you, it’s even more frustrating than when it happens to your teammates. It leaves you feeling powerless, disappointed, frustrated. I would play League of Legends if I wanted those feelings.
I don’t care how hard it is to implement a fix to this. I know at its core it is a very old game, and the whole way matches and replays work make it hard to fix. But the thing is… I don’t care what it takes, it just needs to be fixed if AoE2:DE wants to actually compete with other games in 2020.
Can someone gather stats about what % of 4v4 games involve at least one player dropping in the first 20 minutes?
It is just so hard to find a 4v4 game that actually plays like it should
Sorry, I had to vent…
