Microsoft has announced a new update .

Farms may be not walkable if desired, units have stances, many small improvements, and there will be many balance changes.

That is pretty exciting. I wonder what the norm will be online...walkable or not?

Okay, this came out of nowhere. Was not expecting this. Excellent, finally some love for DE. This is a great update and I like almost everything. Well done! The map balance changes are all very good. The compressed graphics, finally, this was also much needed.
Fixed an unintended mechanic where units could be spawned on the opposite side of a wall built next to the production building.
I get that spawning beyond an enemy wall is not supposed to happen. But would this mechanic still work when your building is completely walled in? Otherwise you'll see a lot of wall rushes coming up I guess.

I find most of the balance changes interesting and am keen to try them out. Except... removing Chariot bonus vs priest. I don't get it, why? No. Just no. Their conversion resistance is nerfed too much. Priests need a decent counter! Those wololo'ers need a spear jammed down their throat once a while. Also I don't get the scythe chariot upgrade buff, it's already very costly. The nerfed slinger bonus vs towers and walls is too much as well.

Now if everything works as it should and is tested properly, I might just get some hope for future updates, because quite a few things still need to be fixed/added.

It looks like it was released early. What do you guys think of it?

I can't even download the update. I've tried it like 10 times but it does not show and nothing happens. It won't start downloading, it can't even find it lol. Yes I know how to download the update. No it doesn't do anything.

I hate windows store, my god it sucks so bad. I gave up wasting my time on this.

Yes making your device have everything sorted out for the updates to work is difficult and imo a pain in the gonads. For months I was unable to, so I had to:

1-Update windows 10. Apparently no update for AoE gets installed unless you have the latest version of Win10.

2-Redownload AoEDE

3-Pray to Sobek everything finally works.



However now that everything works, I play the game daily, basically.

The changes have been quite interesting as, like I said on other thread, the Carthaginians and Greeks are not useless shit anymore in RM lol.

However I do agree with our Muchelangelo, the chariot nerf sucks. Priests do need a counter, c'mon!
