First of all, the Steam/MS storefront hasn’t been updated with an explanation of what the heck deluxe edition contains, in detail. Still. I mean, c’mon. Some of us know what those deluxe edition items are because we watch your streams and then we told as many people as we could in the forums. But, here is the deal- we are not your interns, who are ready to explain things. We are your customers. Kindly update your store pages!
Next, I think the World’s Edge needs to start actively engage on genuine topics such as regional pricing, or topics that ask hard questions such as bad animations. Otherwise, expect the same repetitive “graphics are bad, and 60 dollars is mad” topics. Forum moderators can only do so much, you have to provide clarity by providing announcements. Just because some of us have a cover art of AoE games don’t pretend we are your radical fanatics. We like some of your products. That’s all.
Finally, Relic entertainment is moving on to its next project. They gonna tease something (probably CoH 3) tomorrow at 1 PM EDT. As far as I know, they have about 300 employees (I believe this # includes non-developers too). This game is not even out yet. There is no news about a public beta. So care to explain who the heck gonna take care of the leftover work (I know the game is finished, but I sure know it ain’t fully polished yet). And who’s gonna maintain the game post-launch?! Even if they get help from SEGA, Relic still be 3/4 focusing on their next project (even though I think their next project was probably under construction alongside AoE 4). So is it Forgotten Empires, World’s Edge, or some other company to who you gonna give 5-years of a contract?! Please clarify.
Such a shame you guys are not communicating. Supposed to be an AoE franchise caretaker, eh?! Then start acting like one World’s Edge.
See this is the thing I have been wanting from World’s Edge. But nope! ZERO engagement from them. Relic has come out and explained a hot topic, but where are you World’s Edge?! It is also a bit unfair that Relic did no such thing for Age IV (probably because they were hired as consultants?!).
