Since AoK game has so many different ladders to play and so few players, wouldn't it be pretty fair for AOE 1 to have a DM ladder? I don't think that's asking too much. It would increase the competition, bring back some players, and separate the RM from the DM.

Any responses? Even a yes or no with a simple reason would be nice enough.

We will need to hear from more aoe1 players before doing this.

I have read some players saying that it is not needed, but they have to decide.
In my opinion it should have 2 ladders, when you enter to the aoe 1 lobby, you can clearly identify that there are 2 types of games, RM and DM.
Anyway I almost never play aoe 1.

I personally think it's a great idea.
The DM games go much faster most of the time. So those who can not take the time to play a RM game lasting 30 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes would be rewarded and enticed to get on the spare hour they have and play 2 good games a night.
This, I believe, would bring back many more players. It would be a domino-effect, as each person who joins again may bring friends to join back as well. Tournaments could be organized, and some players who play the *rare* occassional game now may even become silver or gold members.
With the summer approaching, those younger players who have the increased free time would be able to play more as well. The forums for AOE 1 would be put to better use, as well as a collection of recorded games immortalizing this wonderful game.
There have been many great games played, strategies developed, and legends made since the release of Age of Empires October 15, 1997 in the US and February 2, 1998 in the UK. It is in my most humble opinion that the simple addition of a DeathMatch ladder would have this effect. How difficult could it really be to add one (1) ladder?

it seems like there should already be a DM ladder....
so i don't see why there shouldn't be one now.
i think a DM ladder should be added

Okay we can make another ladder. Current one will be general and new one DM only, sound good? Don't want a 1v1 ladder or something aswell?

I can't speak for everyone, but I think General, DM, 1v1 could be nice. But then you'd have to think about the difference in DM 1v1's and RM 1v1's. So maybe the best way would be to just keep one RM and one DM.
But like I said, I can only speak for myself.

There are not enough regular players in AoE to have more than two ladders. An RM and a DM one are sufficient enough. But I definately agree that this game needs a DM ladder.

That is awesome that we have a DM ladder, but it doesn't seem to be working right. I tried to host a DM ladder room but the settings just wouldn't switch to Rated...
