Escape Gaming is proud to announce the Escape Gaming Masters with eight players facing off in a double elimination bracket for $3,000 in prizes.

Battle for Angkor was a great success in December, we want to continue in that vein by hosting yet another event this January. The tournament format is mostly the same but this time we will introduce new settings and see some new players step up to the plate. Once again all games will be streamed on the EscapeAoE channel.
Our top four finishers from BfA have been invited back whilst the bottom four have been invited to a new qualification bracket the day before the main event; sadly RiuT declined which means there are 5 open spots. You can sign up for the qualifiers here.

Main Event – 21st-22nd Jan (Bracket)

On 20th January we will see an eight player single elimination Bo1 qualification where the top four finishers will advance to the main event on 21st-22nd January.

Qualification – 20th Jan (Bracket)

Awesome!

Sorry if I just missed it, but will it be played on Voobly or will it be played on HD with all the available civilizations?

What our company does in dota2 and hearthstone is not comparable to what we are doing in AoC. I could quite easily divert the funds somewhere else.

BUT, I wouldn't be ZeroEmpires if I didn't try and do something here

ye, we can't thank you enough for your selfless efforts lel.

Anyway, you have a point: I hope this event will run smoother than the last one. "great success" kinda made me chuckle, so fingers crossed for the next one, as it does indeed raise attention for AoE2 as a whole.

No, I don't think people realise how this is all made possible. And that's fine by me, because I'm not doing it for them; but considering that so many people here like to think of themselves as the one and only "Age of Empires community" it's hilarious.

Yes, the last weekend was a great success; in many quantifiable metrics

So, here we go, right? Get top players for this with well donated events and other will spec. Surely it will be a succes, since viewer count will be breaking records! Half of active 2k+ will practice this to play short tournament for very solid money and rest who don't like it won't have players to play with. But this argument some people (including me) used before the start of the first event is obviously invalid, because those are just players not enough thankful for Zak and his awesome job, he's doing for us!
Peace Zak.
