Mod Possibilties for up to 12 players

I have always been curious if it is possible, either by the devs, or a very talented modder/modteam, to allow more than 8 players at a time. A lot of my favorite memories as a kid growing up was playing this game and Warcraft 3. I loved how you could have up to 12 teams in vanilla WC3, much more with mods, and would love to see something like that in this game.

Is it even possible for a modder/modteam to do or would it have to come from the devs? Have any devs ever entertained the idea of increasing the maximum player count?


It’s hard, but in AoM you can play up to 12 players…
