๐Ÿ›  Server Maintenance - Wednesday, November 10 - I, II, III DE, and IV


WHAT : Server Maintenance (Multiplayer Servers)

WHEN: 2021-11-10T22:00:00Z

EST. DOWNTIME: 1-2 HOURS

GAMES & PLATFORMS:

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition (Steam / Microsoft Store)
Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition (Steam / Microsoft Store)
Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition (Steam / Microsoft Store)
Age of Empires IV (Steam / Microsoft Store)

OBJECTIVES:

Routine server maintenance; no player-facing changes.

DETAILS:

This coming Wednesday, November 10 , the platform team will be taking the multiplayer servers down for regular maintenance. Please note:

  • Online matchmaking will be disabled exactly one hour before the maintenance window to prevent disruption to newly-formed matches.
  • Any matches still in progress at the start of the maintenance window will be disrupted when the servers are taken offline.
  • DURING THE MAINTENANCE WINDOW, YOU WILL STILL BE ABLE TO LAUNCH THE GAME, BUT WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MATCHMAKE OR ACCESS ANY ONLINE FEATURES.

To prevent any interruptions, we recommend wrapping up any games at least 10 minutes before the maintenance window. The downtime is expected to last between 1 and 2 hours . You can watch this thread for any changes to the schedule as they arise, as well as the all-clear when the maintenance is complete.

Thank you for your patience!

Why are we literally having maintenance just a week after the previous one at peak european times? This will be the 2nd time in 2 weeks I have to reschedule a tournament match and cancel a planned stream due to maintenanceโ€ฆ Not a good look.

Wait no Relic cheater bug fix? No mongol TC rush balance bug fix?

Also no information about balance patches for future?

And once again maintenance at peak EU times even though EU has the biggest playerbaseโ€ฆ

Are you trolling?

Ok thanks if you can link it please just want to no if I get xp on single player when servers down thanks

They really donโ€™t give a โ– โ– โ– โ– .

AoE4 players be like:

โ€œPatch the game already!โ€

Then get mad when they patch.

Yeah, itโ€™s peak hours, but do you not have something to do for an hour or two other than AoE? And if not practice up on your strats, and play solo, watch some of those beautiful 4K clips, and stahp whining.

Yeah, people gotta chill. Not to mention whoever is doing the maintenance probably works regular hours in the US. Timing makes sense to me.

The Mongol TC rush is counterable and barely in use anymore as far as Iโ€™ve seen.

The relic glitch is on the known issue list.

Why is everyone so angry about a game going down for 2 hours max? Does anyone have anything better to do? I guess itโ€™s just an indication of how good the game is that people are impatient to play it. And yet you complain about bugs and issues.

The Devs are humans and work real human hours. Theyโ€™re not robots. Cut them some slack and enjoy their masterpiece already.

Change it to 3h later. Not now in EU Peak.

There are other hours during the US working day that would disrupt fewer players. No one is saying they need to be up at 4am.

A reminder to everyone that the multiplayer services will be unavailable for around 1-2 hours starting now as they undergo routine maintenance. We will update when the maintenance is complete and the servers are back online.
