I just came to this thread through AoEZone, but I think it’s worth it to post here as well.
I dont even think we need a very big patch right now (some people were saying that there).
It’s just about sending some kind of signal and showing us what you are currently working at, so we know at least somewhat what to expect.
I 'm pretty sure something like this would already be celebrated by 90+% of the community:
Steppe Lancers -2 damage
Cumans dont get +10% cavalry speed anymore, but get free Husbandry
We are watching balancing issues right now, but we want to take a bit more time until we make specific changes. So right now we just “hotfix” the things that seemed to cause more trouble than we anticipated and will continue to work from there. You can expect a big balancing patch in the next 2-3 months.
Added the abilitiy to veto up to 3 maps of the current ranked que.
We are still working on an improved ranked matchmaking system, but we want it to be fully developed before releasing it. So right now we give you the ability to avoid maps you really dont like. Stay tuned for an update for our ideas for ranked gameplay in the future!
In addition to that you can now have a look at tech trees during que times.
We are also aware that the spectator system needs a lot of improvement. Right now our focus is to make every game played accessible to watch and easy to find. You can expect an update for that in the next 2 weeks. After that we will focus on improving the spectating tool itself.
Last but not least we are still working on performance issues, but since there are a lot of possibles reasons for problems we won’t be able to fix them all in one patch. Just expect the game to get better step by step with every single patch through small fixes. Our main priority right now is preventing disconnects during the games.
Thanks for giving us feedback and helping us to make this game as great as we all want it to be!
I think something like that would already do A LOT and give us an idea what you are thinking. I don’t understand why you choose to basically not communicate, or if you do communicate you just seem to use common phrases instead of any details that are actually relevant.
I dont even think you would need to fix everything at once to make the community happy. You just need to start somewhere and give us a good idea what you are actually planning to do (and not just “we are working on something”).
It would make everything so much better. It doesn’t have to be the big perfect solution right now. Just a step in the right direction. But I think that we need rather sooner than later. Please get us on board and don’t just do something silently and then present us the work once it’s done.
