Honestly, i don't think making people automatically connect to a lobby server was a good idea. Sure it sounds good for us to pass the time, but in all honesty having not played empires in a while, had no idea why i was instantly connected to a random server which i didnt even know was a waiting lobby because nobody ever reads chat. But thats not my biggest issue. I feel as if this server will keep people on for a bit and they will disconnect. Havent you noticed that usually on saturday mornings there is usually lowpop gameplay going on. But now i kind of feel like without people sticking around in normal servers and people being distracted by a "lobby" they dont even know as a lobby keeps people around without thinking that this is what empires is. Sadly ive met people who think that that is the case. I wanna hear your thoughts on this.
