Hello. I talked about that with a developer in the "help" section of Discord server, and i want to translate that discussion here. All we know that AoE O don't have an easy way to connect players in the matchmaking, groups, etc, because some people can't open ports and the rest are not in the same vlan. So there is a solution that was implemented by FX in Imperivm III in steam that consist in creating a vlan connectable via launcher. In this case they forward all the traffic through the VPN, in my opinion this is a effective way to avoid the problem but is a bit aggresive, because all your internet goes out through the vpn. So it's possible to create a network adapter (like hamachi does) that only redirects aoeo traffic. This can be done with OPENVPN. (OpenVPN is open source and can be implemented in launcher) I hope you consider this! Thanks you.
