I used to play a lot about 3 years ago, i want to buy the game again now. Do a lot of players still play online? Are people playing Asian dynasties or not? What are the population numbers like?

Thanks

Hey

I just bought this game a bought a week ago (steam sale). And I can tell you that I was extremely disappointed to find out how little of a player base there is. Everyone says nilla-ESO is the most popular, but at best theres 800-900 people playing at a time.

Standard que times can range from a minute to 20 minutes. Hell, in the 5 days I have been playing I've only gotten 7 games total in. Sometimes I can be in que for an hour and get nothing

Unfortunately, seems the game is dead. Also chat lobbies are extremely dead, basically 5-15 people on average.

You're doing it wrong. Using quicksearch is not the best way to get games, since most people use the game browser.

You'll want to either host a game in the game browser (you can access it in one of the tabs on the left), or join someone else's game there. Though if you do use the game browser, take note of the "rank" system. The right-most column will show the "rank" of the player hosting it, e.g. conscript, private, master sergeant, brigadier. You will most likely get booted from a game if you're considered not good enough. For someone who's played only 7 games, I'd suggest joining conscript,private or lance corporal games, or hosting a game yourself.

EDIT: Just checked your ESO. It appears you won 5 out of 7 games, which is pretty good for someone new to the game. You're currently pr 21 (2nd Lieutenant)- check this in the Home Cities tab, bottom right. So probably master sergeant, 2nd lieutenant, 1st lieutenant games then. Though your rank may be inflated since it's only been 7 games. It'll stabilize to your true-ish rank when you've played more.

I'll try that method again, however previously I did not have much luck using the Game Browser. There are only like 10-20 games at a time.

And my stats are good because I've been playing AOE/RTS for 15+ yrs

come to GameRanger. A lot of activity there.

I love this game too much to suck at it. I'll become the best someday.

Asian Dynasties with Warchiefs has about 2000 people on most of the time. Game browser has about 20-40 games up.
