Please stop this stupid vote.

if you want to play with the whole map list, then play single player or unranked games. there are a lot of maps out there that are just blatantly imbalanced one way or another to use on ranked ladder.

for all the complaints you have about towers, you would hate a lot of the maps the map pool would bring if we allowed all of them. you’d also see a lot of people quitting games because of it.

You mean like nomad? The outcome of that map depends so much on where you build your first TC which is mostly based on luck, I might as well just play Russian roulette.

Also why not do these votes ingame? A lot more people would participate, especially more casual players because right now mostly forum users i.e. hardcore fans decide which maps should be played.

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.

These numbers also look bogus to me

really? how many people do you see post day to day on these forums? remember, your claim was hardcore

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.


your words were

the hardcore fans who post on this forum number only around 50 to 100, we don’t see more then that post any given day.

and my point was that only 50-100 people post here in any sort of “hardcore” amount.
so to say that 675 is only the hardcore posters is BOGUS to me.

Would be awesome to have this poll in-game!

When are these changes applied? I expected they would be during server maintenance, but we still have last week’s ranked maps. :upside_down_face:

Normally around the time you posted this. You might be just a little bit impatient by asking here. I havent checked, but i assume the new maps much be live now.

Yeah they were live like 1 hour later! :smiley:

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.
