Hear ye! Hear ye! People of ESOC! The time has come. (For a rhyme that's cheesy!) That's for all you completionists ;)

A polarizing figure vs a guy who sidesteps polar bears. Diarouga, a guy who knows the patch well and has created new and unconventional builds vs Aizamk, a guy who has mastered the art of adaptation and may or may not be a noob. These will be the final games for @iwillspankyou's tournament, affectionately known as The Warchief's Tournament. Whoever wins, not only wins the tournament, but also wins the chance to be crowned by @iwillspankyou (The crowning will not be streamed. Castle staff will not permit it) We've seen their map vetoes, we've seen them conquer their opponents. Order pizza, buy drinks, imbibe on whatever substance(s) that will allow yourself to become glued to your screen. These games will not disappoint! Lock yourself in. We're in for a fun, but bumpy, ride no matter who wins!

What's that? You want to know when? Optimal time, of course! This Saturday, September 23 at 16GMT

Come watch with me. See you all there! :flowers:

Stay tuned for the possibility of the bronze match being streamed. This is, of course, between Mitoe, the man who is basically immortal since he has a birthday every day, and Kaiserklein, a guy who has a beautiful heart, but is oh so very French! :biggrin:

Today at Gamescom 2017, Microsoft made a few huge announcements regarding the Age of Empires series. First, Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will be released on Thursday, October 19th. The game is a remake of the original RTS from the series which was released 20 years ago.

In a second bit of great and unexpected news, the stream ended (almost) with an announcement that in addition to the defenitive edition for AoE1, both AoE2 and AGE OF EMPIRES 3 will be getting a refresh. That's right, Age of Empires 3 will be getting a update! Discuss it here!

The biggest news of all of course is the announcement of Age of Empires 4. Little is known at this time but certainly the trailer hints at perhaps a continuation of the march through history that the first three games in the series have undertaken. Discuss AoE4 here!
