The best PvP players don't play this game, as this game is more or less still broken in terms of PvP.

 

Also why is this on MMORPG.com? YOu can only play with 4 people.

Most of the players in the bracket have led the PvP rankings since beta, one is a pro SC2 player. And how is it still broken? Have you played it recently?

The fact that you can't just fire up the game and do an 8 man game with a balanced random map scenario is what makes it broken.

Few would consider the absence of that a broken feature. 1 v 1 and 2 v 2 made up >90% of AoE2 & AoM online matches in the past. 8 player matches are a niche game-mode which I will admit would be nice to have (or at least a 3v3), but it is most definantly not needed to make the PvP aspect viable.

To each their own.
