Hey all! So this was just announced, what do you think about it? I am cautiously optimistic

There's a few things I worry about which I'd like to hear your thoughts on:

1. How do you feel about AoE1 being gobbled up by it's offspring? This is both meant as a joke and a serious question. Do you think that instead of announcing it as a DLC Age2DE should be renamed to reflect both games (equally)?

2. What is the current state of the chat censorship in AoE2DE? Has it become better or worse these past few months? I don't own the game and would like to know. I want to communicate normally in MP, and last time I checked the chat was horrible and server side, very very slow.

3. How is AoE2DEs performance nowadays, has it improved over the past few months? I specifically mean resource hogging and memory leaks, which seem to occur on various set ups (not all though), what I meant is has any optimization of the engine been done and these issues finally been tackled?

4. What do you expect and what would you like to see?

I am all for it if done right. It is by all means a logical step to take, also from a developers point of view since AoE2DE is superior technically, it would make no sense using the older genie engine. Most unique unit quirks can be recreated using triggers too. And I do prefer the better AI and numerous features of AoE2DE over that of AoE1. Gameplay would certainly be an improvement. And I can see expansion DLCs coming with Indians (beyond the indus) and perhaps Celts, Scythians in the future. This is the one reason why AoE1DE is being incorporated. Will it be perfect for everyone? No, that is not what I expect at all. Treat it with respect, and you may just have me onboard.

"We are AoE2DE. We will assimilate you. Resistance is futile."

There will be Vietnamese in RoR DLC.

I'm sure the majority of Vietnamese players will stick with the original.

So what do you think about the DLC now that it has been revealed? I'm really happy there is land trade and triggers now. It could have gotten some extra stuff I think but I guess they're saving that for future DLCs.

I think so too that most of Vietnamese will stick to OG version.
I really like the additions (gates, new techs!), I am curious about campaigns though (probably there will be only 3, I hope they will add more in the future).
I'm moderately optimistic for ROR. I hope that they will develop this project in the future.

I am looking forward to this, because I really don't think much more will be done for the AoE I DE. Improvements and new content are a great thing, and we still have the original should one prefer that.

What a weird feeling to hear of Age of Empires 1 being ported into the Genie 2 engine.

I feel like firing up the original 97 and playing a few games.

I'm sure you could keep it interesting as well if you followed the same formula of age advancement, resource acquisition, and technological improvement.
