As we all know that AoEO comes out today what is a really interesting and somtimes very upsetting question is what will happen to the people who play AoE3 now. I'm just really scared that if AoEO is good and that the gaming population of aoe3 will split giving less people who play aoe3

On the other hand AoEO might cause other people new to the series to play and try other AoE games.

It looks like many people are not really looking forward to aoe online. Me included

So maybe a few people will move to aoe online but they will be back after realizing the aoe online is not worthy their time

People seem so negative, its free, so at least give it a try before dismissing it.

You never know, you might be pleasantly surprised.

I'm very pleased with aoeo
They just need to add 3v3 and 4v4 and dump down prices by 5$/ on everything then itll be great!

Free to a point, there are restrictions on free-2-play.

Summary of F2P/Premium here.

It is the next Age of game, its set in the AoE time frame.

Head over to AoEO Heaven for more info.

AoE online looks like AoM without the god powers or the norse. As I read in a Game Informer reveiw, which I totally have to agree with is, "Someone got MMO all over my RTS."

Have you actually played the game before coming to that opinion though?

It's like CoD:MW3, you don't have to play it to know it sucks. Unlike MW3, we don't have an alternative new game like BF3 to play instead .

And theres the problem, people deciding the game is rubbish before playing the game.

Possibly , its also quite irritating to see people dismissing the game based on what other people have said without trying for themselves.

I'll admit that the start is a bit slow, and is a bit like the AoE Egyptian campaign of learning, but you can largely ignore the MMO aspect, although you will need to gear up if you want to PvP competitively.

All I'm saying is try the game before deciding you don't like it, preferably to level 10.

Meh, the game is just extremely bad designed (not the graphics because those are awesome).

i stopped playing aoeo after level 4 because-
1) quests are badly written.

2) The game incites you to buy premium from the very start. . I might have planned on buying premium on the later half of the game, but now it seems that i'll be needed to buy premium immediately or lose the gear i acquired at level 3. Also shows the low standards of microsoft.

there are plenty more reasons, but these 2 are the more important

I no longer play aoe3 actively. In fact, I no longer play any video game. That's how lame I've become.

I think aoeo isnt made for the hardcore gamers, and only hardcore gamers are left at aoe3...

Think about Halo 3 and Halo Reach, even though Halo Reach is out there are still plenty of players on Halo 3. Heck it's the same as Aoe3 and TAD. Some players might be lost the AoEO, but plenty will stay.

aoe3 is a game for little kids, some kids think they are good. compared with other rts games skillwise aoe3 players are terrible since most of them click shipments to achieve victory.

Aoeo is actually a macro / skill based game so it will attract a different audience, so far i have seen a mix of old aoe3 pro's (the ones who played fp), some aoc legends and newcomers.
