Since Omega just got mad at some certain points and answer in a ridiculous way. I will more reply on the things Tricky said.
First of all to make it more clear with the point "no abusive Mods/Admins" i meant the status of being a moderator or admin itself. It makes you being ahead compared to normal players. Thats why i said that players are equal in GR.
- Just that u have moved now the threat into a topic with: mark "WARNING: Entrance may result in drop of IQ", an area most people won´t notice and even create there a new post so that most can´t reply on it, is an little example what is meant by that point. So i dont mean that "Mods and admins flameing people" at least not with there known names

Only allowed too add 50 friends on game ranger.
Yeah i like the Chat here too it makes us like an addicted EE-Family. In GR the way to communicate is shitty. I also didnt know that u only can add 50 friends.

Its just like that GR atm has more players then Lobby. That´s why i thought about that idea to shut down the server here to get there more players. Sure GR not really care about EE or AOC itself. They just added the game on their list so players can play it. But hmm is here a difference anymore ? As i started to play EE 4 or 5 years ago we had Lobby Updates etc.. but now players that were able to do some changes left. Every idea players or even me ( I did several ) suggest will be answered with like "ohh no its not really necessary", "ee has always been like that we dont need ....", "its old game" etc . I understand its old game, many players quit and we lost possiblities do some changes. I also dont demand anything. You guys did a great job within the scope of your possibilities. But now i dont see that much difference between Lobby or Gameranger on that part.
tricky wrote:tbh i think its stupid idea you will kill off aoc straight off
Yeah i see that risk too. On GR nearly all games hosted on are EEC games. But here on Lobby also only 2 AoC games hosted. 1x 4vs4 Mid and other is 1x 4vs4 Pre the rest games hosted are noobgames that gets hosted on GR aswell.
tricky wrote:Dont know where your trying to go with this lance but it will kill ee and aoc more atm people can set up playing both so i dont see the issues.
In total we would lose players but on the other hand, since we a splitted community, we would increase the playerbase on GR. That leads probably to more 4vs4 games which most players like to play. Thats the Idea behind that. Like when GR has like 70 players atm while lobby only got 40 and we manage to bring 20 of the 40 players to GR. There would be 90. Which lead probably to more games on that side.
My situation atm is like when i go online at 6 p.m :
- there 30 players only online
Half of them are bad or laggers
Most dont play pre which is my favorite set
i switched to liga but noone play anymore too
noone wanted to train me in mod
So i switched to AOC MID which is not that much fun compared to other sets. Mostly to laggy so i cant micro which makes expan civs / passive playing stronger. Not that good players etc...
So i miss partly the competition and challenge to playing game which for me is one of the important parts of a game.

Yeah would have been best but atm GR has more players then Lobby. Some months ago it was other way round. Even Mods and Admins play on GR ... So i dont think there is a chance anymore.
Atm the playerbase in Lobby decreases. IF wait to long there wont be a possibility anymore to do that switch to GR. While do that change with more players, GR will be accepted better just because more lobbyplayers would be involved.
All in all this is just a suggest how to keep on going with EE. Dont take it that hard.
