Yearbook 2017

2014 | 2015 | 2016

1. MOST ACTIVE FORUM NEWCOMERS


  • 2016's list in review:
    • Still active: (czech) DraXieN, Gmanstreams (MoA5 admin - hot!), patao (initiator and owner of https://aoe2calendar.com/!), Klaus the Conqueror
      Activity drop: theCraigert (had some heated controversies this year)
    What happened with last year's notable mentions?
    • Still active: Rorarimbo (going strong with his KotD Civ analysis!), Qulala, hightower, Rgeadn, (_blank) pig (continuing as (_blank) pigao), buddy__1,
      Less active: (new zealand) Osaigos7 (walked by to bump his map pack),
      DMWC (no need in 2017), __skeje (involved first half of 2017, no post since September), Queros (involved first half as Slightly Random admin, no post since July), (_blank) ThatGuy (last post in September 8-) ), Agoodperson (last post September)
    2017's new members with 100+ posts (ordered by account registration):
    • 10th January - Wololo_Warrior: very active January-April, after that RIP. He opened some nice topics.
      15th February - Abraxas: Admin of Argeking Cup I & II and Adopt a Noob 2.0, semi-hosted on AoCZone. Argentinia is already strong on AoCZone, with him even more.
      27th February - Tarsiz: Lively member of AoCZone, participating in many small sized tournaments throughout the year.
      13th March - (_blank) Haiyti: Highly engaged in game mechanics and recorded games discussions, no own topics.
      4th April - RennyCheung: Doing great communication work for chinese players on AoCZone, the ambassador of Frantic.
      18th May - Tocaraca: I learned on Bulletchen's podcast that he is controversely known from r/aoe2, seems to be an infamous AoE2 personality. His first of two 2017 topics was quite active and closed.
    Notable mentions (50+ posts, ordered by date of registration):
    • BruZi (creator of KotD visual mod!), EscapeAoE (no need to specify!), Enigma_CT, friendpanda (feeding the Daily Games section), Black (4th in Argeking Cup and outraged about BMyers), (_blank) asdfasdfasdf1 (creator of the 19 pages long Monk Macro thread), sheik_92

5. PERSONAL ENDING NOTES


  • For 2017, I especially want to thank Maiwingkos and smarthy for helping me out with Noobs of AoC 4 - great work! And once again, I have to thank prv_limb and robo, as they do, together with me, most of the daily AoCZone staff work. I really appreciate you guys! And once again, I want to thank Huehuecoyotl22 - he was the only consistent rec poster AoCZone had in 2017! When I started to actively lurk on AoCZone at the end 2013, UP 1.4 was already an established fact. I'm happy to have witnessed the Beta rise of UP 1.5 in 2017 accompanied by the popularization of WololoKingdoms - my last thanks shall go to (_blank) scripter64 and Jineapple, as well as ZeroEmpires and Cysion - the work of the teams they represent (together with the implementation by [flags]vb[/flags] Voobly and the platform it provides) surely were a big factor for the wonderful WK situation we have now.

    For 2018, I wish all AoCZone members a fruitful year, see you around!

Thank you pumukel, since your first post of this sort I'm looking forward to this.
Really good job with bundling 2017 into one place and giving an overview.

Good job, must have been a lot of work. I also wondered about what happened to Wololo_Warrior, he seemed like a good guy.
