This past weekend we all saw the conclusion to one of the most dominant runs in the long history of Age3.
Many thanks to everyone who made this event possible, especially EGCTV for co-hosting and funding half the prize pool. Thanks to @Aussie_Drongo , @I_HaRRiiSoN_I , @Lecastete , @fitzbro, @minimoult21 and others for all the streams that they led. Over the course of of the pro-division and the end of the amateur division, we managed to cast almost all of the games, a tremendous accomplishment. Special thanks to the team at Aoe2cm, who modified their software in order for us to use a draft for civilizations in the end of the event. If you’d like to use it for your own fun, head over to https://iii.aoe2cm.net/ and check it out.
Of course, tournaments like these wouldn’t be possible without the support of the community. In order to keep providing high level content going forward, we need your help. We at ESOC are looking to add our team. Specifically we are looking for those interested in helping to run or cover tournaments for Age 3 and Age 4. If you are interested, please send me a PM or contact me on discord. We also rely on your generosity to fund the events that we run. I’d you’d like to donate or subscribe on Twitch, that would greatly help us in order to host future events like EPL3.
Other than those events, what else does ESOC have in store? Well, with the release date and upcoming beta for Age of Empires 4, it is past due time that we opened a forum specifically aimed at that game. More and more information will continue to be released, and no doubt there will be great discussion to be had. Head over there and check out the existing topics. There will be a closed beta soonTM, so stay tuned for more information about the launch of the beta and head over and become an Age Insider on ageofempires.com if you are interested in participating.
