A new Update for Age of Empires: Definitve Edition has been announced. As pointed out by forumer Romanos_V some interesting new additions are promised, including unit stances and the option to make farms impassable like in classical RoR, in addition to balance changes and improvements to MP matchmaking.

Some time has passed since we changed the poll as well. To summarize our last one, I asked about your favorite Post-Iron unit, and the winner is a dominant force in any RM game that reaches the late Iron Age, the Heavy Horse Archer. The full results of the poll are displayed below:

What is your favorite Post-Iron Age Unit?

Heavy Horse Archer (20%, 38 Votes)
Centurion (19%, 37 Votes)
Heleopolis (13%, 24 Votes)
Legion (10%, 20 Votes)
Cataphract (10%, 20 Votes)
Schythe Chariot (9%, 18 Votes)
Armored Elephant (7%, 14 Votes)
Juggernaut (6%, 12 Votes)
Heavy Catapult (6%, 8 Votes)

Total Votes: 191

For our next poll I've picked a topic I've always wanted to ask you about but never quite figured out how to without overwhelming you with options; Scenario Designers. The solution is a somewhat arbitrary division between the "classical" designers, before the advent of overlapping buildings with the enhanced editor 2.0, and the "modern" designers after that. Then we may begin with a somewhat concise list of classical designers, and do the modern at a later time. And if your favorite is missing from this far from comprehensive list, feel free to leave a comment and I'll try to add them.

Oh, and a quick P.S., we have merged the Scenario Design and Modding forums into one, so expect to see modding threads on the front page along with our other forum topics in the future.

Thanks for the update. This new poll is a most difficult choice, I like all of their works. Oh wait, I know! I will troll the poll and vote for each one!

I did my best to pick out the greatest among the great. Originally I had begun working on a list of all designers, trying to take into account download numbers, ratings and the size of their total body of work, however no matter how hard I tried I couldn't bring it down below 15 names.

I'm actually a bit surpsised how easy it is to divide designers along this line. I think out of the names on the list Andrea was the only one to ever submit a campaign with the EE 2.0 or later. You meanwhile get lopped in with the "modern" designers Phatty despite submitting Efirum in 2001, simply because I think The Heavenly Escort is by far the more impressive work.

For those unfamiliar with any of the names on the list, they are all worth checking out.

Oh that old thing. Forget about it, it isn't very good. I should probably do an update on THE sometime.

I have been working on a few scenarios the past years but nothing set in stone. I am constantly trying out new things and trying to push the editor limits. Thing is I have all these creative ideas but putting them to work in form of a scenario can be pretty difficult (working around limitations in a convincing way) not to mention time consuming. I have made quite some new discoveries and tricks which I will keep to myself for now

Well I think it's a solid early 2000's scenario. And anyways, we all start out a bit rough around the edges. Except for some of the people on this list, who somehow knew exactly what they were doing from the get-go.
