As far as I know, there isn't a collegiate team or tournament series.
Although I would love to see more talent development opportunities for AoE 2, I think your best bet (mostly to convince the schools) would be to wait a bit and follow anything that comes up with AoE 4. It is likely not going...
ZeratoR, french content creator, SC2/AoE2 commentator, among many other things, just tweeted that he will be hosting an event that includes a tournament for Age of Empires IV on November 14th. I don't know french, so I have no idea about the format, so if any french speaker could check for more...
I think it is just a gradient, and everyone will put their "esports" bar where they want to according to their own ideas of what it should be.
I put it at the lowest possible level. Does the game have a metric by which you can compare two or more players? If yes, then congrats. You are a...
I do agree that All esports are competitive games, but not all competitive games are esports. The main issue is that you end up failing to account for just what sorts of weird things people can be competitive about.
For me, the industry is split into 4 "levels". Don't think of them as hard...
I honestly found the title of this thread immensely funny. Not to offend or anything, but my first thought was the same as yours "yeah, Aoe already is an esports".
I've talked back and forth with a few other writers/journos in the industry (think dot esports, upcomer, etc., type people), and...
From a quick read , it would seem the two countries that might struggle to get into Germany atm would be China and Brazil. But for both, the case seems to be fully vaccinated individuals is ok. Still, you might need to quarantine for 10 days after arriving, or you might need to stay 10...
This makes it the second event in AoE history to break 100k and the only LAN to break 50k+ for nearly two decades. Also, once RBW5 finishes, it will make the 2021 overall prize pool awarded bigger than 2019 and 2020 combined and continue the Year over Year prize pool growth since 2019.

As mostly an outsider looking in, I think right now the scene seems to be pivoting into who is actually the best territory, now that Viper is no longer the undisputed best (though still at the top of his game) we instead have a healthy mix of folks battling it out for a place at the top.
Blatantly stolen from u/jdgaravito on the aoe4 subreddit, here are the screenshots of the two moments UI was shown:
