Why is no one playing multiplayer?

We all know AoE II has a much larger player base than AoE I but I find it ridiculous that AoE II has hundreds of lobbies online at any given moment while AoE I has basically none. Why doesn’t anyone want to play multiplayer anymore in AoE I?

Just look at this.

Maybe it’s because of the still ongoing game crashes and no one feels like wasting their time.

One or two games always appear when we enter, but if we press “Refresh Games”, several more games will appear.

The game crashing all the time if you try to go on multiplayer. There working on a fix atm but it takes very long. I hope after the beta of IV there begin working on it again.
