AnnouncementAge of Empires II is still alive, well and good - and with the Holiday Season upon us, what better gift could we ask for than another Age of Empires II event. We are particularly excited to start the New Year with a wrang of a tournament - Wrang of Fire III hosted by grathwrang.
Wrang of Fire III is a 1v1v1 tournament that will span across three weeks and will feature a fantastic twist on old map favourites with a new and refreshing format.
Due to the nature of the tournament settings, we can already guarantee that the games will be absolutely incredible, chaotic and unpredictable. No game will be the same as players will be forced to split their attention across two opponents, with the potential for back stabbing, colluding and more, and with spec chat operational, we'll be able to see all of the in-game negotiations.
In addition to an open qualifying round, the tournament will feature one massive single-elimination stage, holding up to 81 players. This means that every game, every minute and second, will matter for the players as one mistake can be the difference between advancing or elimination.
