Am not saying this is a big crisis or anything, but with my experience with AOE3 NE, I would rather be sure everything functions correctly than have various unconfortable disfunctions, even if they are minor. Plus, I am really loving this game and am trying to put a good impression on my friends about it. It just looks weird when the HQ looks like it eternally froze. Also the fact that their are vast cities and the empire doesn't just function in one office. Again, just my opinion, but would really be greatful if it got just a slight upgrade.
