Re: AOE4 Trailer today @ 8PM GMT

I honestly think this art style is basically the exact same as AoE3, in terms of realism. Modern graphics just clean up the literal blurry noise you're used to from AoE3 having to scale everything up about 8x. The only cartoony thing is that units are not the same physical scale as buildings -- exac .....

Re: [EP] Change the Dutch flag

I am pretty against changing things like this in EP. It's kind of a slippery slope into "fixing" other inaccuracies.

The game is supposed to represent something like 300 years of history. I think in some part the developers did things like this to distance it from reality just a bit, and k .....

Re: CAPTCHA question

I added "centre" as an acceptable spelling.

It looks like we have a reCaptcha plugin installed, tbh not sure why we don't use that. Tested it quickly, looks like it doesn't render in the page. Need a frontend dev to look into it further I guess.

Re: Should it be time to use real-life pictures instead of avatars

It looks professional when Escape took photos at their studio, but a mix of photos taken by players in different lightings, bad cameras, etc would not look as good.

Re: UI 3.0 Design Suggestions

How about a way to enter alternate names for players?

A common problem is casters referring to a player by his/her most popular account, even if the player isn't playing on it. This can be confusing for more casual viewers who don't know everyone's alts. However, main accounts often have names that a .....

Re: Modem and router

For wired, basically anything is okay. Pretty much all consumer hardware exceed by far the speeds of your ISP, unless you have gigabit internet (then just make sure what you get supports gigabit speeds - most stuff does).

You may need to talk to your ISP to activate the new modem, once it's plugged .....

I like the way the bottom panel is much better in interjection's suggestion here. I am not a fan of the queues in the top left, it's hard to tell whose is whose. I'd rather see the bottom UI a little taller if it mean queues could fit there.

How To Say

There a lot of Age of Empires-related words that seem to be commonly mispronounced.
