WHAT: Server Maintenance (Matchmaking Servers)
WHEN: 2020-05-20T20:00:00Z



  • Preparations for the May update.

Good day, battle historians! This coming Wednesday, May 20th, the multiplayer servers will be coming down for routine maintenance as we lay the groundwork for the May update.

:warning: During this time, you will still be able to launch the game but will not be able to matchmake or access any online features.

The downtime is expected to last between 1 and 2 hours. We will update this thread with any changes to the schedule as they arise, as well as the all-clear when the maintenance is complete.

Thank you for your patience! :+1:


I know this patch will be awesome, and youโ€™ll the current bugs. Last patch was kinda weak, but march one mas rock solid, so now itโ€™s turn for another awesome patch! Looking forward to it :slight_smile:

P. S: hope you buff koreans and Portuguese land :slight_smile:

Canโ€™t wait to the may patch. Hope to see the bugs squashed and the disconnections gone.
Thanks for your hard work!


Good news, but next time hotfixing some gamebreaking bugs before the big update of the month would be greatly appretiated.


will there be any updates for aoe1 de?


Btw, I gonna take the chance to make a request, since devs would be seeing this: can we get a way to be sure our opponents are playing random civ in ranked? Iโ€™m bored of going random against civ pickers. Just played a game 2v2 in scandinavia, and my opponent were japs and mongols. Happened at least 5 times since last patch. Please!


It couldnโ€™t get much worse than the current patch 11

Catsoup, ketchupโ€ฆ We are saying the same 11

Will this include the hotfix?
Why at this time? Every day around this time most players are playing the game according to Steam. You can take every other timeโ€ฆ

Probably because it fits the american working pattern. 9pm GMT will be 2pm on the west coast.

Please fix some bugs. Some of them are very common and have been existing since FEBRUARY! Many people are frustrated.

MALAY. :crazy_face: .

Donโ€™t expect Server Maintenance to fix bugs,

Those are updates that should do it


They are obviously working on an update too


Maintenance begins in approximately one hour. Be sure to wrap up your games before the multiplayer servers come down. Thank you for your understanding and patience!

Please, give us some age 1 DE update. :sunglasses:

next time, please do this kind of things outside prime time. thank you.


Why are doing this at 4pm on the East Coast?


To make a server maintenace at 22:00 is in my opinion questionable but well it should only last one to two hours so I guess thats fine. What I can not understand is the fact that there is no anoucment for that on the main screan of the game. There are f events to unlook avatar but no information about an upcoming downtime of the servers. Would that be a nice place or you simply do not want to โ€œoverloadโ€ the screen with ussles chunck? Love the game. Have fun.
