Red Bull Wololo III reaches its epic finale as the Main Event of the 1v1 Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition competition kicks off over the next two weekends. Pitting players against each other in a custom version of the Empire Wars battlefield—skipping the first stages of a traditional match with a start in the Feudal Age—Red Bull Wololo III offers thrilling spectacle and incredible competitive strategy.
The Road to the Finals
The global tournament’s open qualifiers saw competitors Daniel, Vinchester, GL.DauT, and ACCM fight to victory in the first open qualifier bracket, where they were joined by BacT, Villese, MbL, and Vivi from the second bracket. All have earned their place in the finals, where they’ll battle it out with a legendary group of pro players: Mr_Yo, TheViper, Hera, Liereyy, TaToH, TheMax, Nicov, and Capoch. All are set to take part in the 16-player Main Event—and with a $30,000 prize pool up for grabs, the fight to be crowned champion is going to be fierce!
And that’s not all that’s at stake. Red Bull Wololo III introduces an overarching story to the entire tournament series, weaving each Wololo event into a larger narrative:
The winner of Red Bull Wololo III will join the previous winners—Mr_Yo, who won the first Red Bull Wololo, and Liereyy, the Red Bull Wololo II champion—to take their place at the grand final.
