The Red Bull Wololo II tournament recently wrapped up with some incredible Age of Empires II matches. Now that a weathered champion has emerged, we’re looking back at the action leading up to the epic finale of Red Bull’s second Age of Empires tournament.
A Quick Recap…
The Red Bull Wololo II was played using a modified version of the ‘Empire Wars’ game mode: a unique game type to Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition showcased during both Wololo events. Players skip the Dark Age entirely and start each match with a Feudal Age town. Beginning with a Scout, 27 Villagers already collecting resources, several resource drop points, a Barracks, a Blacksmith, and the Loom technology already researched, the mode guarantees instant action and fast-paced gameplay for the Red Bull stage.
Each match in the Red Bull Wololo II tournament was also set to a 900-year time limit—or roughly 75 minutes of game time—to keep the action moving along from start to finish.
