New Seraph in Town
Posted by Zen

Let's give a warm welcome to Dr. Lorenzo, who will be serving as Age of Empires Heaven's webmaster/Seraph effective immediately. He's got some very big shoes to fill and also a legacy to continue, so please be kind and give him a hand when he needs some help picking up the piece.

Articles and Judge's decisions
Posted by Phill Phree

Would anyone who sent me their judgements for the campaign contest, or any articles for the site, please send them to me again. Sorry for the inconvenience, they didn't survive the PC blowing up.

HG's 10th birthday
Posted by Phill Phree

Ten years. Hard to believe but here we are, and AoEH is happy to be a part of this excellent moment in the crew's history.

In honour of this I will be opening up a thread on the oldest surviving site in our VVV forum, for people to come in and give their best wishes to all the hard working guys and gals who have helped us last this long.

The thread will be created at midnight GMT on Monday 14th and will remain open until midnight GMT Tuesday 15th. One post per person, where you can wish everyone well and maybe say a little about what HG has meant to you over the years.

Hope to see you there. Thanks to forum regular Alakazam for the idea.

Campaign Contest
Posted by Phill Phree

In case anyone is wondering what happened to this, I am in the process of judging the ones that the judges could not due to computer problems. It is in hand and I hope to announce the results soon.

Xfire
Posted by Phill Phree

StalwartUK posted about this. Xfire is a messenger that focuses on gamers. As well as the usual IM features you can talk to friends in-game when playing some games (not AoE unfortunately but we have other ways).

You can also track your game hours (all time and in the last 7 days) and what is perhaps most important to AoE players - groups of people can meet up in game lobbies and have games with each other. If you used to play on the Zone then the interface and features will be familiar to you. Much easier than meeting on MSN and playing over IP.

StalwartUK has also started a Guild for AoE players to join here. Once you have created an account and downloaded the client itself then you should be able to just then apply for membership at the above link.

Well worth a look.

Server Troubles
Posted by Phill Phree

Some of you have probably noticed our server being up and down like a yo-yo the last couple of days. Apologies for that, we're working hard to resolve this and thank you in advance for your patience.
