Team games have always been the the stronger aspect of AoE compare to other RTS like Starcraft. In team games, you can watch each team fight back and forth. Civs weakness can be cover in team games better than solo match. Matches also generally last longer and go well into post Imperial Age. There will be more chance for showcase of all units, tech … instead of intentionly trying to drag out match in 1vs1. I also believe, it will be easier to show the sacred/wonder victory than in solo match.
What do you guys think?
