Well it seems that recently the general chat and strategy chat have died down. The strategy section is completely dead. Not a single thread in like a month. The general chat has also died down quite a bit. You used to post something and 2-3 days later it would be on the next page. Now you can post something and it will still be on that page a week later. So, I just wanted to know, what happened? Why has everything died down around here?

I can give you one reason, With the arrival of AOE3, there will be less talk here then there is now. Most people (even though I love AOM so much) will be playing and posting on AOE3. Its sad but it happens.

That's the way it works when most games age. Unfortunate, but that's what one can expect when a game loses its potential audience.

It's really curious though how the AoKH (and AoMH) scenario design community are still flourishing - tighter nit group and all.

Yeha what I ment was a new one. The othone sucked. Like why the hell would you make up a mythology thtas part of a real mythology when there are so many great real ones left to do. Like the japanese or aztecs. I wanna see the aztecs.

Most times you dislike something you can even say it's bad, but you should state that's your opinion ("IMO"). I, for instance, am a great fan of Odin and norse raiding, but play mostly TT. If it's difficult to raid on TT and the norse are nerfed, how do you think i'll do on a game where the norse rules and raiding is almost OP?
TT expansion IS GOOD in MY opinion.
Free and cheaper MUs, AQ are useful additions to the game. I dislike Atlants, but, hey! The norse, Greek and Eggy are still there!
You can stay on vanilla, but, please, respect those that like the expansion.

Dry, but not dead.

Most of the reasons behind it are subjective: some people don't like the game anymore, some people don't like the community, others have moved onto another "Age of" game, or even the likelihood that most AoM players these days tend to play single player and have no need to join messageboards. Whether it's any reason listed above, or another, the entire AoM community is feeling it. There are less clans with less members, fewer forumers in all AoM fansites, fewer players, and less incentive to join the community.

What is the concern, perhaps, is the extent to which the AoM community is being effected by it. While the communities for most games dwindle away until a few hardcore people remain, it would almost seem as though AoM wasn't that big of an online game in the first place. It's a great game, yet it would seem most players prefer to remain offline or outside the community as a whole.

We've been discussing the same in our Staff forums, btw. You may soon see changes around here.
