Hi Relic, Long term fan here. I've been with you guys since the original DoW.
Unlike some members of the community, I enjoy DoW3. I've been having fun playing the game even during the pre-patch days. My only problem with DoW3 at this point in time is that many people don't share my opinion which results in the playerbase being extremely underwhelming when it comes to size. I usually have to wait between 5 and 10 minutes to find a 1v1 game (given that I mostly play during late hours in EU). 10 minutes of waiting to 20 minutes of playing is not the ratio I'm looking for.
I believe the patch was a step in the the right direction but the community definitely needs more incentives to become interested in the game. This isn't a rant or anything of that sort - it would just be nice to get some communication from Relic that they recognize the problem and are working on possible solutions.
EDIT - posted in the wrong section. Mods, can you move this topic to general discussion?
