Today I thought I would play AoE on the Zone. It has been years since I was on the zone.

When I went to the site, they asked me for all kinds of information, including my email address and my zip code. (My old log in name was not in the file.)

Then they asked me to agree to accept a huge long list of things. I had the feeling I was going to be inundated with spam and product ads, so I canceled.

Tell me, those of you who have signed up recently, what is your experience?

I would like to play there again, but I don't want to sign my life or my privacy away.

Um, it's just signing up for an MSN Passport, right? I had one long ago when I signed up for Hotmail. I don't really use it, mainly for signing into MSN Messenger and the Zone. You don't really have to bother with the mailbox.

And you don't have to give real personal info, SaSa.

Thanks. I just signed up for a hotmail account and I finally got on the zone. Had a lot of zone software to download. Whew!

Will play later.

Don't tease me, Phill.

I will not reveal my nickname there so that when I am on the zone, I can play incognito.

My experience on the Zone was great. I bumped into a guy named Noble..great DM he was. Taught me everything I knew virtually, suggested I played Hittite as it suited my style and then told me when not to play as Hittite and when to change my usual strats.

We made a great 2v2 DM duo. Then the Zone turned evil and got incorporated into .net. Slowed dramatically and the numbers withered.

Haven't played for 1 year now. Been back recently..totally changed. Feels like Windows XP, a bit tacky and gimmicky.

Bring back the old Zone I say!

I'm serious. Soon as I get the tournament ladder installed we're going to have one. Even if it's just for fun and T shirts and stuff.

Use another name if you want to keep your primary zone ID. As long as it is consistent and tied to your forum ID it doesn't matter. I'm just not sure if you can have multiple identities on the zone, but if you can, why not?

You know my game skills are not that great or fast. Therefore I shall slip onto the Zone (hopefully unnoticed) and forego winning a tee shirt or whatever. Pride goeth before exposure regardless of the prize.

Still, you could play for fun.

Centy, yes I agree Noble was good. He even beat me on RM when we played last time! I don't see him on the Zone or here at AoEH now, though.

Actually I only know what you have said and I think you may be putting yourself down too much. However, I am going to be running different ones so people of like skill levels have a fair chance and ones without prizes so the staff can join in.

Sara, no one will mind if you can't play up to Blitz's standard. Heck you'd probably give some of us a run for their money.


It's only for fun...you won't be embarrased or named and shamed as a rookie player or anything like that.

Practice makes you better. So what are you waiting for soldier, move out and conquer.

Seriously good luck. I should try playing on the zone for the first time.
