Pls Bring Back AOEO in offline mode... I'm begging ya
Common Microsoft, this game is fantastic, the best RTS game I've ever played next to COH2. I only stopped playing/paying because I knew it was getting the axe but man..... I miss this game.

Pls bring it back in offline mode/steam support, with shop to purchase various things. I'll pay for it all over again if I need to.

Loved EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS game... was awesome!! Can't figure out why you guys are not trying to get it back up and running in offline mode just cut down on team working on it. Have them add small little stuff we can buy in cash shop so you guys can make some money.... I'll pay lol and so will alot of others. Only good RTS game out right now is COH2 so now is perfect time to release this

While we appreciate your passion for keeping the game running after the shutdown, the suggestions made by you are not possible, as there are no developers working on the game.

I have to agree with everything wowcoh56 posted. I would be MORE than happy to pay $60 for an offline, LAN enabled version of this game. I know you said there are no programers but...money solves everything - right?!

Then perhaps get a dev team? Give us the tools?! I understand you are restricted on speaking because of the company but, you have to atleast talk to microsoft studios to try something!

Is there anyone qualified who wants to work on the game?

Here is any easy, tried, and true solution to games which are no longer supported. Release the source to community. Modders will certainly create an offline or local server mode.

As others suggested, hire some Devs then; you have developers who are working on AOE 2 HD, AOM EX, and RON, why not give them AOEO as well and give this game some life.

Microsoft used to do just this. Allegiance was released to community modders and it's still going. Asheron's Call was sold back to Turbine and it's still going.

At some point, the more cynical elements within Microsoft won an internal debate, and now the company knows that every one of us enjoying an old game is a potential customer not bored enough to buy a new game.

I think most companies know this also, but most companies value customer goodwill to an extent. Microsoft has too short an attention span, and its head too far up in the clouds, to concern itself with customer goodwill.

I doubt they even have someone managing their brand recognition or tracking the company's reputation. They see others making money on a new fad, and that fad becomes their priority. If we see a return of Age of Empires Online, chances are it will be on mobile. Probably after mobile gaming has fallen out of fashion.

Interesting...

"Microsoft is just keeping the door open longer to allow devs to fix their games. GFWL is dead, just pushed back the funeral."

Realease a DAMN downloadable content to play that DAMN GOOF GAME OFFLINE !!!
JUST THE SKIRMISH MODE & make it purchasable but give unlock code to ppl who already owned the Game like me and all the huge community you left over, you may not even let it go like this, you gave us hope, you must still provide the thing you could share with the game.
SO NOW from 97 til 2k14 you got our chillhood, we want our content !!!!!
Cheers

As much as I'd like to see this game come back, I don't think it's possible since it seemed all your progression was handled server-side, and there was no singleplayer campaign/system in place to take over in case the servers ever went offline. Such a shame, if they would have made it like a normal game from the beginning, instead of perpetuating these ridiculous 'freemium' nickel and diming schemes all these other big companies are pushing on people, where they sell games to you piecemeal instead of whole, we would still have a game.

All they have to do is let somebody else host it. This doesn't mean players want the source code, it doesn't even mean players have to host it. It can be done officially by a third party.

I suspect this was never considered because Microsoft just doesn't want everyday schmucks getting a close look at the inner workings of GFWL, since much of that technology is still used for Xbox Live and whatever else.

The real shame and pity of this is we couldn't get anyone at GPG or Robot or Hidden Path or Skybox or anybody to peek out from behind their cubicles and offer so much as the middle finger, so Microsoft's childish "there's no one to work on it" excuse sailed right past, and about a half dozen of us even bothered to ask why.
