World’s Edge loves the supportive, diverse, and passionate gamers that play, stream, and take part in the Age of Empires community. Our goal is to nurture a community where everyone feels safe in their shared love of Age games. One of the best ways to unite our players in celebration is to organize and host official events: such as our recent Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition Battle Royale event. We truly believe the best way to share what we’re doing is with the help of our community; as such, when we invite players to stream in official events and on our channels, we do so with the full expectation that we’re inviting them to participate with a welcoming and supportive community.
The weekend before last, some of the key players invited to join us for the event did not receive the support we expect from the Age community. Comments aimed at demeaning, hurting, or disrupting the success of others stand in direct conflict with our core values. Age titles represent a variety of people and cultures, and our goal is to ensure that Age-related events and streams do the same. We’d ask you—as a community united by a common passion—to focus your efforts on protecting and championing each other.
We all share a common goal: to make Age the greatest game and community on earth!
