okay this forum has maybe 50 to 100 people active on it for aoe2. theres some others who show up from time to time, but if you’re talking here day to day, that is easily a very conservative estimate. and yet this vote got 675 people…
so it seems like that’s a bit bogus of a claim to me.
You must differentiate between people who actually post on regular basis, people who post on occasional basis and people who never post but only read. Especially latter is usually bigger than the rest.
AoE 2 DE has a daily peak of 20-30k simultaneously online players. We see 675 voters. I don’t need to be Einstein in order to conclude that these votes do not represent the player base’s wish and that these votes need to be done ingame and in larger intervals because people grow tired of voting every 4 weeks.
Having an announcement with clickable link in the awful home screen in-game would be a good idea. Put it where the Barbarossa Brawl thing has been for the last four months from Thursday-Sunday when voting is active every other week.
