What is it about?

 

Age of Empires is probably one of the most well known realtime strategy games. 

The first AoE has been released in 1997. 

In 2013 Microsoft released an HD version of AoE 2 which brought new life into the old game. 

Ever since, the game is all popular again and in the gamelist of loads of gamers. 

This Autumn we are organising a 2vs2 tournament on this wonderful game. 

We are expecting there to be sign ups from all kind of different skill lvl players.

So if you are a newbie, dont worry, there will be others aswell, and if you are pretty good in the game and can easily beat the rest, even more reason to sign up!

 

 

What is there to win?

The first place will be rewarded with 10 euros. However, this amount may and probably will grow the comming period.

The second and third place will be winning a great amount of Mercs gold or PW money (you can choose one type or the half of both).

 

 

Important data concerning the tournament

At 29 August 00:01 the signing up period will end. 

At 29 August the poules will be announced.

At 5 september the first matches need to be officialy agreed on.

In the week of 12 September the first match will be played by everyone.

Accordingly, every week one match will be played.

With 16 participants this would mean that the tournaments ends in the week of 24 October.

With 32 participants this would mean that the tournament ends in the week of 31 October.

 

 

Rules

Before you are all excited to sign up, it is important to have a look at the rules.

I agree, why limit siege workshop if you happen to get civ that is actually good at it. Or player that is used to using them

The reason for putting a limit on the siege equipment is to balance the game a bit more and making it last a bit longer. Though, what we can do, is just like the peace time, checking what the majority of our participants want. If it turns out most people like to have the limit on it, we will keep the limit, if not, we will remove it.

How long you want your matches to be, reaching castle age already takes 20 minutes or so. Can be less but you surely don't get your siege stuff up before that. You talk about balancing, thats not how you balance, if you think theres civs that have an advantage or civs that are just way weaker, don't include them. But theres no reason to not let people play like they want

Let me first of all say that we are open to ideas from participants, but that we can not include all their wishes. If you can not agree with that, then I advice you just to not participate.

 

Concerning your question, we do not care how long the matches will take, since we do not know. It can take an hour, two hours or even more, that mostly depends on the teams. Though, there is a difference. If you are able to spam trebs or bombards, a game will most likely end quicker, since you are just able to do more damage. We would rather see a more tactical game with less 'spamming' and more 'counterunits tactical moves'. Besides that, every civ has his weakness and strenght, that does not really matter. None of the civs are reallly overpowered at Age of Empires 2 and every unit can be easily killed by a counterunit. 

 

But, since we were also not entirely sure about the limit on siege units, we will see what the majority of the participants want, this goes also for the peacetime of 20min (which would prevent a towerrush on dark age and early rush on feudal).

 

If you would like to talk with me about this topic any further, feel free to add me on steam.

 

After all we need you guys to make this tournament work :)
