back in the saddle with the new xbox release and pumped about the community, new civs, and meta. its def been a while! 11
started playing age of kings online prior to the msn gaming zone going defunct, witnessed the empires legacy scam thereafter, and experienced the death of matchmaking -a sad period in age of empires 2 history.
back in the aok/aoc days custom scenarios were extremely popular. was a great time with the community generating fresh game styles, i even postulate the unit micro we all still use was originally mastered in custom scenario matchmaking. community favorites were soldier store, archers advance, archers blood, blacksmith blood, small blood, winter blood, infantry blood, and regretfully CBA/CBT, among others. still remember some of the scenario legends: j3rk, woc, perfect, gnom3, gleich, nQ, soma. i even made center blood as a kiddo, was stoked to see it in the certified voobly map pack years back. from what i’ve noticed (on console) is we only have the ability to play random map or the new empire wars variant. here to ask if custom scenarios will be implemented into this version of AoE II? it is the Definitive Edition, after all
og FaMouS2 is plugged in as well. our dark and feudal is solid but we’re getting trashed late game. the new civs and balance is great and we look forward to getting increasingly competitive.
see you out there!
