I just upgraded to AOE2 DE from AOE2 HD and I have a big problem. I play AOE2 DE in a 15-inch laptop and the letters are just too small to be read from the distance that I usually seat from the screen. For instance, I just cannot chat with anybody in the lobby without looking at my screen as if I were threading a needle.
I asked my AOE2 DE friends and they think the same: the letters are too small to be comfortable read when they play in their laptops.
So, I think that the developers should make the font bigger with a patch, or at least, give us the option to make the font bigger in the game settings.
It might be because my screen is 720p (my laptop is 6 years old). But the game looks and plays good, it is a shame that I cannot fully enjoy it only because of the font in some parts of the game (others parts are good enough)
