Re: RAGEQUITTING AOE3

Well, Age of Empires 3 is really lacking a good player base around capt lvl. Having a good player base at a mediocre lvl is so important for a game but right now it's either really good players or really bad ones.

Re: RAGEQUITTING AOE3

Switching between ep and re is just a nightmare for me. I have to restart re twice and then ep twice in order not to fail to join any game. And the game I wanted to join is mostly full by the time I manage to do that.

Re: RAGEQUITTING AOE3

No quick search (hard to find a game). Boring ep maps. The creators always wanted random maps for a reason. I hope they gonna force us to play quick search for ranked games. Quick search really can revive the game. And yes maybe even a migration map like we have in Age of Empires 2.
