I’ve been praising this game for a while, I’ve gotten 6-7 people into the game already and we all love it. The fact that you guys are consistently adding new content, and making sure the game is balanced makes me quite happy, I don’t think a lot of people realize just how far this game has come since release, and its all because you developers have put in a lot of really great work, and a lot of great decisions have been made along the way.
Yeah… lately I’m having been a little bit salty with some balance changes, but I gotta to admit that the game actually improved a lot compared to the game that I used to play back on the 2010s…
Graphics looks gorgeous, I have experienced a lot less bugs on DE, there are much less lag on games and the maps spawns improved drastically.
Sure balance ain’t perfect and I particularly still annoys me a bit that I cannot watch old game recs (Sometimes even months old recs). But I guess you can’t really have everything in life, and the game did in fact came a long way.
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.
Multiplayer works very well, no serious issues with servers, no lags
It is pretty much balanced
Constant support from the devs (new features, civilizations and bug fixes on the horizon)
I think Microsoft just needs to do 2 things:
Maintain current level of support for the game
Start to promote this game more (more people playing = more money = more content).
It is a great game in a great shape. And it’s evolving. It should be able to attract new players easily. And bigger player base it what this game deserves and needs.
