Aktuell steigt in Hamburg eines der wichtigsten Turniere in Age of Empires 2. Die neun besten Spieler treffen sich dafür in der Wohnung von Sven 'Nili' Reic...
I found this interesting podcast/interview (posted the link on top) with Nili regarding Age of Empires 2, NAC 3, the game as an actual E-Sport and many other things. However an interesting fact is, that it was released by the public german broadcast (ARD, ZDF). That on the other hand means, it got a good (for AoE proportions) advertisment in german speaking countries. Other interesting fact, they stated AoE right besides games like LoL, Fifa or CS.
I just wanted to show you this interview as an further example the game is having a good time right now and the interest is appearing from different sides.
Unfortunately this interview is only in german language available, so at least the german speaking community can hear what Nili actually said about our favorite game.
