Here is a little goodie for all you Age of Conquest enthusiasts out there. I recorded my last turn (18) for a game I am playing on the big map of Europe. Although I am the developer, unfortunately I didn’t have any cheat codes I could use to improve my situation in the game (at least I can’t tell in the video)¹.
¹ no worries, there are no cheat codes in the ONLINE version :p
Age of Conquest’s May of Conquest is well under way and players can join via the Tournament page in-game. Free to join whether you have a paid account or a free trial account means it could be your chance to win some cool prizes or a membership upgrade. Detailed information can be found on the official page here. Many thanks goes to King_Howard, fodder, and ImLagging who have been organizing it.
Also coming up is the Age of Conquest League. Player realRiff expressed interest in organizing it, and has been working hard doing so. Also helping are fodder and King_Howard, providing help to realRiff where they can. It has been a while since AoC last had a league, but this one definitely looks promising. There will be three categories, 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, and 4 vs 4. Players will be required to have a paid membership and to have played at least 15 rated games to join, but they may join all three categories if they wish to. To register, go to the official page here. You can also find any other details you may want or need to know there. Tapping into his creative side, realRiff created a promo video for the league which can give you a quick rundown of what is to come.
While I won’t be joining myself, I wish the best of luck to participants of both May of Conquest and the AoC League.
