Just wanted to take the time and say thank you to Escape TV. While I was very sad I couldn’t make it in person, watching this event on Twitch was definitely one of the highlights in a very long time for me. You guys absolutely crushed it, from production value, the tournament setup, etc...it was fucking awesome. I’m sure I speak for the rest of the community when I say, can’t wait for the next one!

Shout out to @Interjection for playing a huge role in reviving AOEIII. I've been watching your vids for a while and for me, you were the reason that i have stuck with AoE for so long.

The quality was crazy. Not only the event was cool and nice to watch, but the preparation and the realisation was really professional. Those little videos for introductiong the maps, those good quality images to present the vetoes and the pick of players, the Escape AOE teaser etc, etc. People tend to forget this monumental work of preparation, and to be honest you did it amazingly. I've also really enjoyed the happiness and the sportsmanship between players ; this event is motivating me to come back playing this game.

But yes. It was insanely good. Can't imagine something like this was organized for such a small game. Everything was so professional that it could be a 100 000 dollar csgo tournament aswell.

Everytime I saw an image or flag or screen change I thought of the work behind it because of past experience with Adobe CS and streaming apps and was really impressed with the amount of work was done to make everything seamlessly smooth. I really wish I was able to make it.

Brazil has a great word for " the masses"
Povão : people (povo) with the superlative ão suffix

Typically it's used with negative undertones and connotations such as "ignorant, silly little people"etc.

While the esoc Crowd is certainly not the povão of AOE, I'm afraid that a less graceful such bunch give SamuraiRevolution the noobbasher extraordinaire ( and indeed noob extraordinaire himself) the cake for most influential person in AOE.

Now in case you couldn't tell this is not in my opinion a good thing!!! It leads to maddeningly moronic gameplay found in the MS lobbies I am occasionally forced to play in which some pr 17 will play like a Lance because he saw the histrionic dbag do something ridiculous vs a private on YouTube and it actually worked.

Anyhow in a roundabout way I'd just like to proclaim @Interjection the man the myth and the accent that aoe needs but doesn't deserve

Amazing event.

All the casters were awesome. Kaiser with a high quality mic really does get me hard. Seriously whoever organized pairing the casters did their job perfectly as with each series they complimented each other with great colour cast, analysis and excitement. It was honestly better than western SC2 casting and even LoL LCS level. Those guys are paid professionals. You guys are easily on their level.

Production value was excellent. The first photos I saw of the studio completed just made my jaw drop. The mural - wow. The investment into equipment showed with quality cameras, lighting, PCs as well as the stage and really aesthetic all round.

The lobby overlay was 10/10. Blew my mind away. I could have been watching LCS draft pick in terms of quality.

Show matches were great fun. The tournament games themselves were thrilling. The event has brought me back to when I was playing all the time. If I didn't live half a world away I'd have loved to have supported it in person.

Escape team and especially Interjection really blew me away. You guys have a talent I hope Microsoft pick up and nurture further for not only aoe2/3 DE but also AOE4. You and Ryan together were an awesome team and I hope to see you guys casting as a pair as much as possible.

Finally I must add that having @Cometk looking 10/10 on my 50 inch tv was hype

Also loved the name "New World Championship". I work for a Supermarket co-operative called New World. Made me laugh

@n0el You beat me to it :)

I have to chime in here as well!

What an event. I have been part of AOE 3 since 2006, and this is hands down, no discussion, the best event yet!

Sitting in my living room watching @_H2O and @Interjection discuss outcomes in ESPN Sportscenter style, on my big screen tv, was awesome!
And not only those two - but also all the other great players present willing to chime in and lift this great event to even higher levels.

As the finals came to an end and a new World Champ was crowned (Gratz @Diarouga) I had all these things that I wanted to share here on the forums, so many things I was grateful for, so many I wanted to say thank you to, so many I wanted to tell how much this event means to the community, and how bright the future looks for our beloved AOE3.

But instead of writing a page long thank you note -

THANK YOU TO ALL YOU AMAZING PEOPLE BEHIND THE EVENT AND THE COMMUNITY, THE DONATORS AND SUBSCRIBERS!

(alright old guy, sit your ass back down - we get that you're grateful)

@Interjection should cast for AoE 4 games too. He ish the besht. No words to describe the work done by Escape, it is beyond imagination. They revived the playerbase and the game. Thank you very much! Keep this coming, that is all we need! Also thanks to the generous people who gifted subs to almost everyone!
With lots of gratitude and respect,

This Tournament has been nothing short of exceptional. Its amazing what you have achieved. The commentary was fantastic, amazing to see h2o back and playing. The games were amazing. Overall the professionalism of this event stood out for me. Just amazing. Personally I loved the map videos, as I dont play on the maps so it really helped. What I would suggest as any constructive criticism - I think we could benefit from having more facts and figures about each player and the tournament in general. There was alot of "I think...sioux have 100% win rate". I think there could be maybe a small overlay of what each game was, otherwise you will always get 100 people asking every time(including me). For example Grand Semi Finals in silver otherwise its hard to pick up mid way through. And lastly there was some slight discrepancy between when the stream started etc. Massive praise for @edeholland @Interjection @H2O_ @WickedCossack For the casting and the way you presented the tournament. A truly exceptional event. <3

Forgot to add you Mitoe @Mitoe sorry :)
