An End, and a New Beginning
Posted by Phill Phree

Now that the Zone has finally closed down, Gamespy will be hosting AoE/RoR and AoK/AoKTC. You can use the free version of Gamespy Arcade to play and host. It is ad supported and does not give you some features of the paid version, such as being able to download patches etc. directly through the Gamespy interface, but for legacy games this is irrelevant.

The lobby is dead. Long live the lobby.

Ladder Progression
Posted by Phill Phree

The Ladder is picking up as more people sign in. Some of you have had problems with either signing in or activating the account afterwards. This is more than likely a browser issue. IE seems fine but FF seems to have caused problems for a few people.

Make sure you have the latest updates to your browser and clear your cache. The latest versions of IE, Firefox and Opera should all work fine. Quick links to download them can be found in the footer of our pages here.
