Once I show up in full gear they will change their mind
[*]We've always been the black sheep of the family.iron_turtle wrote: ↑10 May 2022, 07:15Not to be too pessimistic, but people generally consider aoeII and aoeIV when discussing age franchise. I see lots of forum and reddit posts about which age game they like, and no one mentions aoe3. It is all about aoe2 and aoe4. Even aoe1 gets mentioned sometimes.
I was sure D.E. would change that (I had high hopes the tides would turn) but it was rather disappointing because I feel the niche popularity remained basically the same. At least we are periodically receiving new civs, new maps and balances. AOM was more popular and didn't even get a D.E.
We would need a mega patch to kick in the popularity (a new civ, a mega balance patch, several old civs reviewed, old natives reworked (so a big commitment for Tantalus/F.E.), a good promotion from Microsoft, streamers and youtubers doing their thing + a few more stuff). I'm confident that would bring new people for good, but it doesn't look like AOE3 is even reminded by Microsoft Games (except when DLCs are for sale) even before AOE4 was released.
This is too aoe2, you have to dress like a black knight

AoE1 also has more viewers than aoe2+aoe3+aoe4 combined according to Nili_AoE (MS tournament coordinator). so is playerbase most likely much bigger for same reason. Game is huge in Vietnam. Aoe1 event is hosted by Vietnamese organizer

yea, this game has always been the red headed step child and I wouldn’t have been shocked if they’d just skipped over aoe3 for a de. A big tourney would have been cool but at the end of the day I’m glad for what we have been given.
