We have been asking some basic updates which seems to have been forgotten so I will request the developers again to give this legendary game some thoughts before the few hundred active players are also gone. Please fix the common issues we face.
- Introduction of Flare system, just like the one we have in aoe2 de.
- Fixing the Elo lobbies like the same we have in aoe2. Aoe2 has 20k average players and they just have ELO for 1v1 and Team game for Random Map & Death Match but in AOE1 DE we have ELO for 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4. FFA - Dont you guy think that this is too much for a game which averages 800 players? Please have some common sense. As you can check with the data that nobody uses the matchmaking system so please let us have the ability to change Ranked and Unranked games directly inside the hosted room rather than selecting and hosting it from outside because this will save us time to cancel and rehosting the games all the time.
- Introduction of few new maps (just take few from aoe2 de and put them in aoe1 de) and removal of Small Islands - This map makes no sense in multiplayer.
- Finally, since there is no more content upgrade to aoe2, maybe think about adding an expansion to AOE1 de with 4 newer civics, map and some new units? This will add life to the game & put a price for the expansion - we will buy it.
