Topic Subject: Poll being updated again
posted 08-20-21 07:55 AM ET (US)   
Hi everyone, I know this poll roundup is pretty late but I have been feeling a little drained of ideas lately. Last poll I asked you about some of our more obscure names in Scenario Design from the later years of AoE Heaven. The obscurity is apparent, as more than half of you seemingly don't recognize the names on the list:

Favorite "modern" scenario designer?

Who are these people? (53%, 42 Votes)
Phatfish (13%, 10 Votes)
Gumble (9%, 7 Votes)
Al_Kharn the Great (8%, 6 Votes)
Fruktfisk (6%, 5 Votes)
RCM7525 (5%, 4 Votes)
Thompsoncs (4%, 3 Votes)
Nezon (3%, 2 Votes)
Tailspray (1%, 1 Votes)

Total Votes: 80

That being said, these names are all very dear to me, as most of them were most active on the site around the same time as I was, and they were the ones I compared myself to and exchanged tips and tricks with while making my own campaigns. If you haven't already, I think their works are all worth checking out in the Granary.

If you're following the development of AoE IV you're probably already aware that the game has now entered closed beta testing. If you're looking to get into that you can sign up to be an insider on the official site. Now that details about the game are more and more out in the open it might be a good time to ask about our visitors' interest in the game. So, denizens of AoEH, will you be getting AoE IV?

Hey Fisk!

In the last article about polling, you wrote "a shocking 25% of you responded that you don't even play our user-made campaigns. (Why do you even come to this site, our top tier 50 pop strategy articles?)"

Have made that a poll?

There could even be two parts to the poll: Folks who come here but won't play custom designs (why do you come here?), and folks who DO play the custom designs can speculate on what the former get out of visiting (might be good for a chuckle)?

I, for one, take great cheer to see HGS is still up and running. You are the WHOLE reason I have a career in game design. Thank you to all mods, past and present, but especially Spineyman, for your hard work and dedication to classic gaming.

look everyone it's the gordon

Hi Gordon, cool to see you! Similar to you being glad that the site is still up and running, I'm always pleased to see old faces peeking in to say hello to us here in this distant future. I'll definitely make it a point to ask what brings people to AoE Heaven in a future poll, in fact I think I already thought about it doing the last roundup and then I just forgot about it.

Thank you for your kind words.

Great to see you, Gordon! Hope you are doing well! Sent you a LinkedIn request the other day.

Hello blue colored one, I remember you from the old days of designing. Quite a few started their career in gaming through HG, it's like a jump start platform. I voted for Who are these people? since I never heard of them and certainly have not played any of their custom campaigns. Speaking of which, those who voted for me will probably be happy to hear that I am close to finishing something

You know, you could check their scenarios out if you wanted to learn who they are, PhatFish!

(I know you played and reviewed my Uprising of the Five Barbarians campaign and appreciate that!)

I was being sarcastic, but that doesn't always come across as intended on the internet. Should have put a tongue smiley at the end of that sentence I guess. I have played (almost?) all of their amazing custom works.

Oh got it! Hope you liked my designs!

Sure they are all great, enjoyed them quite a lot! I do miss some eye-candy and more extensive map design on your maps but that is a personal preference/choice. But everyone should check them out. I don't think I played your last 2 campaigns, don't recall exactly since haven't touched DE in a while.
