It Says File Missing
http://download.microsoft.com/download/ageIIConquerers/Update/1.0c/W982KMe/EN-US/Age2XPatch.exe

Can someone tell them the patches are missing for this game and AOE original?

Thanks!

Yup. Not sure what's happened. It's been taken off their website all together.

However, we've uploaded it to the Blacksmith and updated the link on the home page.

I'm going to ask around tomorrow and see if I can find out what the deal is. All I can say is don't worry at this time.

It only seems to be the TC patch that has been removed.

I couldn't handle the betrayal and I let them know on their current AOEO site.

So even though you do not have any idea about their motives you post an extreme rant which is not helping the AoK community whatsoever.

Why?

Because I have had a grudge against them since they sacked Ensemble Studios!

Plus the fact the didn't give a damn about us all these years, not one update or patch to fix balance issues atleast. I am envious of the Blizzard crowd, jealous you might say. They get treated like gold with new patch updates all the time for even their oldest games.

I am really angry with MS and their attempts to enter the gaming arena. I would never want them to dominate it like they did with XBox again. Not with the kind of service they have given us over the years.

I think we should as a community send them a piece of our mind. Formally complain in a group action. That is where my rage is at the moment.

Even if they bring back the patches it doesn't stop them from doing the same things for future releases. I just spent over $200 on getting AOEO and already I am starting to see their old tricks shine through.

They got BatsyBatsy to create an online community. They had a whole bunch of guys from MS visiting the forums over at AOEO and now they have leaned back. Leaving the fans to help out in the technical problem threads. They didn't correct bugs that were present since early Beta, severe villager stalling bugs when they collect resources etc. Yet they keep releasing Civilisations and Booster packs etc. But for how long? What happens to the people that end up investing over 1K in the game? Do we get a server in 5 years time? If it was any other respected company we wouldn't even need to ask that question.

So yeah I am pissed off, I am angry, jealous and want them to take notice of these rants so that they can change their stupid redundancy policy on software. Maybe even re-instate a proper server for AOK and AOE. I know it won't happen, but that would have been the least they could do for us.

I find this ironic. Your post was terrible and even damaging to the very community you seem to think you represent.

How is this related? You're only looking for a reason to rant at Microsoft.

As stated earlier, I think your post only decreased the potential for such a thing to happen. I wouldn't help someone who's yelling/swearing at me, would you?

Sounds like to me your just angry at being fooled into playing(much less paying) for a farce of a game called AOEO and taking it out on the community.

I think you've blown it out of proportion and honestly, I'm not worried at all. In fact, I'm the opposite; excited, to what might happen next.
