    I love this new characteristics of the game. My main concern is about the support for watch the matches if you are a caster in tournaments and what is your strategy to move all the players from Voobly to Steam or Microsoft store and unify all AoE community into just one on-line platform. For years the community has been separate and I think it is time to come all together for good of the RTS games. I hope my English was good enough to express myself correctly.
