1. About the site

I’ve had AoE2 since it came out 10 years ago but only started to play online recently. I now know what I missed, a thrilling period when tactics still had to be developed on the standard maps. Ten years later, nearly all those tactics have been laid out and most players have a high rating because they can just copy those tactics. And it’s funny how you can beat a lot of these higher rated players on maps other than “their homemap” because they just can’t think outside of the box.

This site is to promote games in AoC where thinking outside the box is crucial. Maps and settings where your usual build orders are no guarantee for success.

2. The team

This website has been created by Bert Beeckman, aka Cysion.
