This is truly unfair that aoe3 de is left out ,for years we have been hosting tournies through community donations and we never had big prizepool for a long time
Well, I am well aware that there is perhaps not a very fluid relationship between our communities, but I would really like to ask you if you can express our support for us to have a place in the next WOLOLO!
Thank you very much for your attention.
PS: Please, let’s try to avoid disparaging games in the series in general.
They put the prices depending on the return they expect to get. Maybe it’s a typo, or maybe AOE3 has almost no tournament following despite decent sales number so they don’t think it’s worth it. Honestly I have no idea, I don’t follow esport at all.
I don’t think that you will find many arguments in favour of AOE3 on a forum about an older game, with most players having either not played AOE3 or prefering AOE2 over it.
AoE3 is just the victim of M$ moneygrab. AoE4 is pure garbage and it deserves nothing but a server shutdown yet it gets the biggest prizepool. On the other hand AoE1 is less popular than AoE3 so I don’t understand the situation.
RIP aoe3. Even aoe1 is supposedly less dead. I don’t think so, though. I would gladly replace aoe1’s spot on the roster with aoe3. Not sure what they’re doing with this. Also the greater prize pool for aoe4 is confusing.
I hope the topic doesn’t get sidetracked. It seems very brave of @EliteRiflemann to propose this here because we usually throw some stones at each other XD.
The message we want to convey is that there is no AOE-1, AOE-2, AOE-3, AOE-4, AOM or AOE-O community. There is only AOE community and we must support each other. So it should be understood by microsoft, RB and all of us.
This isn’t true. There are definitely divided communities over the different games, based on personal preference. The reason people tend to get into such a state, is because they have a favorite game usually, when MS supports the other games in the series, it’s seen as a threat to each person’s preferred game, because it suggests MS may put less funding and time into the project each person wants, even if it is totally untrue. So I think yes, we are all part of an AoE community, but we are also each part of smaller communities that don’t always get along. Personally for example, I would have given AoE2’s prize pool to AoE3, then AoE4’s to AoE2, and don’t even include AoE4, because it’s the highest competitor against AoE2, which is my favorite game.
