    Idea [I] Discuss the "Transparency" Blog Here!

    Ave, all! Thank you all for helping us with a very successful Steam launch. As we had hoped, we attracted many new players to Age of Empires Online; and, as we had asked, you the community have welcomed them with open arms. We have been in the Top 20 games played on Steam since that launch.

    Communication between the development team and the community has suffered, though. We were unable to discuss the Steam deal until it went live; that was a business deal between Microsoft and Valve, and we could not share the details with you ahead of time. Now that the deal is done, we have nothing else that we need to hide.

    Read the entire article here.

    The alliances thing intriges me.

     

    So if you're not going to be transparent, tell me if a new civ will be announced any time soon.

     

    Even still, I hope this wasn't the grand announcement being toted about.

    For example, the Summer Update will likely contain a Tech Tree Overhaul.

    wow that is so awesome. sounds like aoeo will get a true f2p model. Im sure this will enlarge the community a lot. Im a f2p player and after some attempts to earn free xbox ms points, which didnt work out, i was about to give up this game, but this little blog inspired me to log in again and start farming some empire points :)

    You won't be able to just get them for free. From the blog: "Players will continue to earn Empire points in game, or if players choose to, they can also exchange real money for Empire Points."

    Re: Discuss the "Transparency" Blog Here!

    I really liked how in beta we earned (1x, 2x and 3x empire points) dependant on the number of civilizations we "owned".  Would you consider bringing back that incentive?

    Will we be able to purchase vanity packs with empire points as well?  Will there be any more vanity packs than the five we have right now?

    Alliances sound to me like a clan system, which is good.  Will there be a leaderboard for top alliances?

    You guys only need to be more transparent about some upcoming boosters, civilizations and vanity packs now. Stick out tongue

    Re: Discuss the "Transparency" Blog Here!

    Well that was dissapointing. After hearing there was going to be something exciting for level 40's, all it boils down to is you get some free gear if you sign up to be a member of someone's guild/alliance. As a level 40 you wouldn't do anything differently to how you currently play the game :s

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not bored of 40 yet, I've only just got there.. I was just expecting something more substantial after the hype of today.

    Ooh vanity items for units sounds nice. I want Cat hats for all my units as in my profile picture! That would be awesome ;).

    The Alliances feature sounds very intressting. Will make it feel like an actual mmo =P.

    With the new function of empire points there is no need for you to microtransact players as you promised you would never do. We will microtransact ourselves instead. Genius ;).


    AOEO Trajan:

    GPG-Servo, please put Cat Vanity items on the backlog. We cannot argue with the power of Grayskull!
