I don't really know what to say with regard to the OP, other than I think it would be an incredibly poor decision for me to ignore the release of Age of Empires 4 on both a personal and professional level. I'm a longtime fan of the Age series, and while AoE3 is close to my heart, it lacks the community size that would guarantee I could afford to pay my bills each month. I've attached a graph of my channel views since I began making content a year ago, each data point is an individual day.

Image

When making Age of Empires 3 content, the Aussie_Drongo channel would average roughly 10,000-12,000 views each day, and while it did bring in revenue, it was nowhere near what I was making in my full-time job. Since the release of Age of Empires 4, the daily number of views has continued to increase, with the most recent day (November 7) having 190,000 views. I want you to know that I will continue to support AoE3, however, it will not be at the same level it was in the past. I hope this helps you reconcile with this decision.

Boo! So silly to choose for earning enough money to make a living. He should be working his ass of for the aoe3 community instead.

How dare Drongo do this streaming business for a living.

He should work a real job and stream in his time off for us for free, aoe3 ofc.

Might need a pro con list.

pro
-objectively good for the community (increases visibility of a dead game)

con
-objectively bad at the game (Top 512 player)

i think it is completely understandable you want to focus on AOE4 for now, i for one will look forward to whatever content you will be making about AOE3 in the future, i hope you will make a video once the new faction releases :) who knows it might even get some AOE4 players to look at AOE3.

have a nice day mate.

Late to this thread as I don't play AOE anymore, but just wanted to say Drong's content was the sole reason I came back to a game I hadn't played for 10 years and stuck with solidly for 18 months despite all of its many, many flaws.

Won't be playing AOE4 but I'm so pleased to see his YT views have skyrocketed with AOE4 release.

Guy's a legend.

Which people do you have in mind? Plenty of AoE3 streamers have received a key, but we can forward more names for the next releases.

Apparently this community is so small that an uptick in my post activity is easily noticeable. :hmm:
