Thanks you Swissboy, memb, pgi, and everyone involved in that tournament, it was really great to have this.

I guess I can use this topic as feedback aswell, although it was very good I want to say few things:

- I found the maps to be too repetitive in the end, the whole tournament played on the same few maps, I think a map pack with more maps or even home map, could have made it better to not be too repetitive.


- I want to point out, that what did memb was extremely generous, we wouldn’t have this tournament if he wasn’t here, and generous because he didn’t do exclusive stream, when the money come from his side, his viewers his channel and his sponsor, he could have made it exclusive streaming, and not allow others to stream it live, kinda like zak almost always did or VooblyOfficial did too, this way the viewers wouldn’t be split in so many channel and possibly get more money from it. I think ppl was happy to be able to watch it from others channel than your.
So yeah ty @MembTV :clap:

I hope it won’t be the last tournament hosted by you two !

Absolutely ridiculous numbers on Twitch/Youtube.
I heard something like 8000 on Twitch plus 4000 on Youtube?

Never ever did I imagine a couple of years ago we would be able to generate this kind of interest in our beloved game.

Once again you've proved a lot of people wrong who before the tournament started thought they knew better than you how to run a successful event, swissboyy. If the rumors are true and a big Microsoft tournament is indeed coming, I sincerely hope they get you and the whole MembTV team involved in the organization.

Fantastic tournament, big shoutout to everyone who made it possible.

Amazing tournament for this amazing new era of Age Of Empires. I've been playing this game since 2002, and this is by far the best moment of AOC since then. I felt so emotional after the series, not only because of the games themselves, but also because its so beautiful to realize how far this game has got after almost two decades.

"That almost went too well" Liereyy said, as he moved his finger around his masters nipple, in little circles. "It's OK. No one suspects a thing" Viper grinned. "All we had to do was get Heartt hooked on Fortnite, hack Nicov's computer and well MBL.. he's just a tower pleb" his arm wrapped around liereyy. Liereyy's boyish face looked up to his master "You're so smart, my master snake" he chuckled to himself. A musky smell lingered over the room, clothes spawn over the floor. Liereyy sat up "You're not going anywhere yet" Viper commanded. He tossed Liereyy over like a rag doll. "The cobra wants round two" He said with authority. "Yes master" Liereyy replied.

Agree 100% with the part quoted above.

I don't think the casual viewer understands how it all works.

Memb invested in new equipment, paid for graphics, donated $500 personally to prize pool, and other expenses etc. (not to mention the pressure, the drama and the long hours streaming EVERY single minute and match of BOA and KOTD) that probably ended in a net loss of revenue (for BOA) while watching viewer numbers, channel subs and donations go to (a few) streamers that only covered semi and final and barely even mention credit to Memb during matches, if at all, while sharing -0- of the monetary load while gaining greatly from it.

I don't see this year ending without changes in this respect.

It's just basic economics.
