10 years ago, titans met in battle, in one of the biggest and most well-remembered 1v1 tournaments before modern times: Clash of the Titans.
Now it is time to celebrate it with an anniversary edition, hosted by @T-West, @NovaAoE and @Huehuecoyotl22.
Before the tournament which will be open to 128 players starts this November, DauT, JorDan, TheViper and saymyname as 4 of the 6 final phase players from 2013 and Mr Yo and dogao to replace Lojza and RiuT will play in a $250 promotional round robin event to support us raising a suitable prize pool for the anniversary tournament.
Throughout October, the 6 players will play 5 rounds of 5 games each using the same settings as in the original round robin final, with 1 point per won game. Matches will happen at times whe no other big tournament matches are happening and will be open to stream, if you promote the tournament and donation page (https://matcherino.com/tournaments/94798).
Join us to celebrate some classic AoE 2!
Round 1 matches (dates TBD):
TheViper vs. Yo : Arabia, Araia, Atlantean Relics, Islands, Arabia
DauT vs. JorDan : Arabia, Slippery Springs, Great Lake, Yucatan, Arabia
saymyname vs. dogao : Arabia, Border Dispute, Great Lake, Arena, Arabia
Game 1 is played as a classic Huns war, game 2 and 3 are the home maps players picked back then (with free civ pick). Game 4 is the map that randomly generated from the map pack (mirror civ) and game 5 a mirror Arabia game.
(Maps are updated and settings will be slightly changed in the tournament in November.)
