    While waiting for a game just go read agecomm or watch LoL/SC2, play a game on your cellphone read the news on your phone, talk to some people on skype/xfire/facebook/ESO and you won't mind waiting.

    It will probably be resurrected somewhat when its down to around 20 and later 10€ including expansions and sold in the cheapers chambers in the on and offline stores.

    They will do that at one point, should be soon as long as the game isnt totally outdated.

    The online play always had the problem of not really ever changing exept for the expansions, mods somehow never got popular, probably because of those being unranked, and this game never having a really big online community in the first place.

    Ensemble really missed the train there of putting lots of effort into the online play to attract more people to the game. Should really have done that as an game "Age of Empires 3 Online" and sell it as an expansion for those who already had it or something, instead of making a new shitty one.

    Think of those poor NR guys who have to endure 40 minutes of copy and paste play to finally be able to play what they want or the Sup guys who endet up starting in discovery all the time because everything else is totally unbalanced. The other game modes which only work on a few maps, the unused water maps which are unused because Naval combat is retarded and lags like hell...the expansions which left the previous civs almost unchanged...the ranking system which probably makes lots of players feel like dumbfucks because they are stuck in the 1/3 forever.

     Well, offtopic...someone throw me a rope please...wait for when it gets cheaper, then there will be new players en masse compared to what is already there.

    There seem to be a lot of newer players in the game, and some 'old timers' left too. Most days (US peak time) there are still 1500 (weekdays) to 2500 (Saturday) online. 

    Naval combat and cannon fire would not lag so much if everyone would put the line hideparticles=true in their user.cfg files.

    Create a user.cfg file (do it with Notepad and select "Save as All File Types" to avoid getting a .txt extension, which will not work) in the folder:

    "C:\Users\<your name here>\Documents\My Games\Age of Empires 3\Startup\user.cfg"

    in this file put the line:

    hideparticles=true

    No one likes waiting 5 mins for a game that might not even be worth the time lol..

    5 min??? 

    u dreaming.... TR rooms waits  20 min ++

     

    :(

     And then the lobby closes... I've waited so long sometimes I end up not having enough time to play eventually because I have to go to baseball or something. That's why it's good to know people who play in real life and plan game times out.

    "There seem to be a lot of newer players in the game, and some 'old timers' left too. Most days (US peak time) there are still 1500 (weekdays) to 2500 (Saturday) online. "

    I think this is because steam had it on sale a couple months ago. I was really cheap...

     

    And I have been influenced not to play League LOL. I've seen my friends play before and it's like a combination of RTS and other game types, you only have to micro a few if not 1 unit(s). I personally prefer the complexity of AOE even though I have not given LofL a chance.

    First of all, Ensemble Studios is DEAD now, so no Age Of Empires 4. Second of all, Microsoft is currently focusing on Age Of Empires Online and decreasing Age Of Empires 3 Sale Price (I bought the whole series for $90 back then) and making it available everywhere. Third of all, more than 2500 people aren't going to be on Age Of Empires 3 anymore, Civilization V is at a nice little deal right now for anyone to snatch so getting more people isn't going to be easy. Age Of Empires is dead, but it lives in our hearts, we shall always troll the Expert CPUs and the AOE3 newbies (Who state that Age Of Empires 3 sucks because they can't play it) and have fun. I was looking forward to Age Of Empires ever since beating CPUs and suckish players is too easy...I want to at least play a nice player at my level who enjoys rushing AND IS ACTUALLY GOOD AT IT. I forgot at which year I started Age Of Empires 3, Mid 2008 or Early 2009? Summary of all this (Ignoring the last sentences) is that it will be very hard to get Age Of Empires back on track :(

    Actually the AOE series have been a part of my life for the last 12 years or something so it will always continue to live on in my heart honestly.

    First, someone needs to find the final solution to "Failed to Join Game" so that people can join more games. Numerous players use the methods on the AOE3 website and forums, but they often don't work.

    Second, we need more deathmatch and custom map players. Only having 1v1 Supremacy games and NR40 games gets boring after a while.

    Third, Microsoft needs to give some sort of official acknowledgement to the present AOE3 community. Even something minor would help, like releasing a new random map or patching some connection and OOS errors.

    Finally, Microsoft needs to be more responsive to cheaters and drop trickers.

    i just think they need a new game to come out. For the people that say it will cost too much money for Microsoft to make a new patch, REALLY? you think that a multi-billion dollar company can't use a couple thousand dollars, if not that less to make a new game or even a new patch? hahah if so They are greedy BASTARDS
