So, in case you missed it, patch 8 has been out for a few weeks now! It's good to see Definitive Edition get some love, though some have complained that the changes to the AI weren't quite what they had been cracked up to be. So for our next poll I'd like you to think about your wishes if we were blessed with one more update:

What would you like to see most from a future patch?

I mostly has Definitive Edition in mind for this question as it is the game most likely to receive another update, but if you still didn't get it, you may pretend it's about one final official update to the original AoE about 20 years late. And don't forget to comment if you feel that I missed something important in the alternatives!

This of course brings us to our last poll in which we asked:

What do you think of walkable farms?

I love them! (70%, 57 Votes)
I don't like them at all. (16%, 13 Votes)
I'm indifferent. (14%, 11 Votes)

Total Votes: 81

So as you can see, there is a whopping 70 % approval of walkable farms among our community members, so it seems that was indeed an apppraciated addition to DE. If you'd like to see an (not entirely perfect) implementation of the feature for the original game, you might want to try out The_Patriarck's UPatch-based 5thLegacy Mod, which was last updated this February.

Finally, I have a word for our forum users. As you may be aware, the day of April Fools is soon to come, and with that comes HG's traditional Name Change Day. So if you wish to recieve a new nickname on our forums, your chance is now! Sign into the correct thread at Outside Discussions before the 1st of April and make your request for a new name, and may the angels smile upon you!
