AoE 3: DE 22 Civilization Guide

11 May 2024, 22:26

Hello everyone,

I have very recently announced my public release of my 22 Civilization Supremacy Guide, if you have not seen the announcement yet, feel free to check it out here:

My girlfriend and I have been working on a custom website on which we will release this e-book/e-course on friday 17th, the countdown can be found here: ... de-release

To sum things up - I want to list what exactly I have been working on for these 6 months and what exactly this guide includes:

1. Two of my favourite build orders for all 22 civilizations in written form (44 build orders total)
2. Decks for all 44 build orders
3. 44 videos of me showing every build order vs AI
4. 44 extra videos of me showing every build vs a pro (Kingu/Kevin/Revnak); These games are actually a good watch regardless of learning the civs on a side note :)
5- 22 brief match-up descriptions for EVERY civilization
6. One additional build order for EVERY civilization for team games (+according decks)
7. Tierlist resulting from my match-up descriptions (my personal opinion)

To all this you can receive your personal access/login starting on friday 17th for a one time price of $19.99 with the intention to make this accessable for EVERYONE

I really hope you get to appreciate this as much as I am hoping you will, enjoy the content :)

Dear Esoc People,

I am excited to announce the First KEK🍪-Serie Tournament. This tournament format will highlight maps that are often overlooked in the standard map pool selection.

General Tournament rules:
- The Tournament will contain 8 invited Players only
- Players will play on: Old competetive, forgotten and Trolly maps
- Players will have the option to ban specific maps, but there will not be bans on civilizations.
- Some General Tourney rules:

This Tourney:

- Players have to sign up in "MyEsoc" with:
Name & Link to steamprofile
- If there are more than 8 players who signed up for the tournament: Myself (and admins) will decide individually, who will take part in this event. Eventually everyone can sign up, but the final decision belongs to the Admins.
-Players will be invited after the Signup Deadline
- Crucial Reminder: In order to participate in the event, it is essential to have "The African Royals" and "Knights of the Mediterranean" DLCs. The USA/Mexico DLCs are not mandatory for this tournament. This is due to the fact that specific maps can only be accessed with the DLC content.
-There wont be any seeding in this tournament. All playermatchups in the bracket will be determined randomly live on monday 1st april.
- No Civbans, There are no restrictions on the 22 civilizations that can be selected.
- Mapbans, Each Player will have the option to ban one map of the mappool given.
- No Civresets: in a Bo7, Players are forced to play 7 different civs, Finals 9 civs.
- Civpicks: Players will use the civpicktool for the matchups from this present:
- Games need to be livecasted to avoid OOS Replays due special maps. Players have to stay in contact with the Casters the whole series

Players will be contacted: 31.03 -01.04
