There is little to prove save merit, or perhaps, that is so much to prove: the merit players yearn for - the merit that can propel one beyond the rank of simple major or perhaps the merit that warrants an upcoming, dangerous new adversary the necessary attention he deserves.

The finals of the Spring ESOC Second Chance Tournament are fast approaching! Watch as newcomer prodigy Butifle takes on former colonel and slaughterer-of-legends Look_tom! Both claimed their place 4-3 in the semifinals. Both ache for the demonetized title claiming competitive superiority! How great is their thirst for acknowledgement? How great is the potential for future esteem?

Tune in tomorrow (yes - short notice - sorry!), Tuesday at 16:00 GMT to watch two contenders contend for it all, or rather, contend for nothing at all! It’s the Second Chance Finals, an exhibition of almost-but-not-quite great player skill thrown into the cohorts of demanding ESOC viewership to be deemed worthwhile or worthless! Will you or will you not witness the next step of a young prodigy’s journey? Will you look to see look_tom return to his former glory?

The ZutaZuta Classic by sircallen


Age of Empires... Online? Yeah, Age of Empires Online. It’s here. It’s back. It’s new and it’s old, too, but mostly, it’s exciting. Some amazing people have accomplished some amazing things in bringing the latest installment of our favorite RTS series back from the clutches of corporate cost-saving slashes and server shutdowns.

It is in this spirit of newfound enthusiasm ESOC proudly announces the first of her new tournaments: the ZutaZuta Classic, christened after the streamer/caster/player personality ZutaZuta fully funded its $500 prizepool. Has Zuta discovered the science behind money-growing trees? Or perhaps he has uncovered the secrets behind the more cryptic art of sensible personal finance? Answers to these questions and more we many never know, but know this - his generous donation has served as the catalyst to this operation. To him we extend a hearty “thank you!”

Although no set start date exists rest assured it will take place. Let us welcome back our prodigal sibling - hard feelings, if present, cast aside - with open arms and an attitude of kindred adventure!

Please note the Classic is fully funded - any future donations will be set aside for upcoming ESOC events. Moving forward users will now be able to specify which game they would like their donation be applied to.
