The amount of love Tantalus has put into this game is beyond what I ever could have hoped for. I check Steam DB everyday and the positive reviews are steadily increasing with every passing day. The devs have done an amazing job with so much more content to come. The enthusiasm from the devs as well as the playerbase gives me hope that AoEIIIDE will get the respect it deserves. Both parties are so engaged to make AoEIIIDE the best it can possibly be.
An absolute gem of a game that has meant the world to me since it came out in 2005 and DE has made it all the more special.
AoEIIIDE has so much potential and I hope it will be realized when all is said and done and with luck is still a ways away. I will do whatever I can to support the devs in the quest to make that happen. From the new civs to the QoL improvements to the new maps I was afraid AoEIIIDE was going to get lost in the shuffle but the support has only increased and gotten better over time.
What a awesome time to be a fan of this game.
