Question;
Is this a precaution of the GameSpy servers going down for EE2? and if not, are most of the players going to play on gameranger for gamespy now?

Yes. When GameSpy is broken, we can just play on GameRanger.
If GameSpy shut down their servers, we will try to find something better than GameRanger... Maybe our own lobby, or something like this. For now GameRanger is the best way, and it's easy to use.

And btw. I usually don't use pink color. It's auto colorization in Windows 8, which depend by actual wallpaper.

GameRanger has been around for awhile, they were the first to try and push the AOE2 community into it but Voobly became more popular, from what I saw. (Voobly is pretty much the same thing as GameRanger)
