When I occasionally visit the old server I speak with many people unaware there’s a new server with an updated version of AOE DE, and I think I know why.
The message that pops up on the old version isn’t clear enough that there’s a brand new game to unsavy folks like myself.
If a simple message such as: “Download the new complete version with updates with a brand new server.” was mentioned, I think it would solve the problem.
When I tell people I have 2 separate icons for 2 separate AOE DE Versions that direct me to 2 different servers they are quite surprised.
The reason I’m concerned is we don’t want players quitting because the old server isn’t busy enough. This way they have a choice of 2 servers which keeps them more interested in the game.
