For those not aware, Age of Empires Online (AoEO) was shut down by Microsoft in 2014, but revived by the Project Celeste community in 2017, and has had volunteer developer support ever since. It's now 100% free to play, rather than freemium, and boasts the fastest and most asymmetrical PvP in the Age of Empires series.

Anyway, I've been wondering how to best grow Aussie/Oceanic interest in the game, and have decided it's time to start hosting some mini tournaments, 6-12 player, $50-80 prize pool, over the next couple of months and into 2022, but I am going to need more Oceanic PvPers to reach the higher end of that range!
Consider it a nice starting point with training wheels, as there is tournaments with some highly reputable AoE-series players like ZertoN, TheMista and RecoN, and up to $1000 prize pools in the AOEO global PvP community!
