Topic Subject: Leave it to the Asian experts...
posted 09-14-21 07:46 AM ET (US) reign supreme over all in multiplayer. You will (most likely) never get this good at playing the game, it requires years and years of practice. To this day there is a huge following in both Vietnam and China who play very competitive matches on a daily basis. Much like experts TheViper and Daut in AoE2 DE who's matches are posted on youtube, the Asian community does the same and streams these battles also on facebook amongst other places.

If you have seen some of these battles before, you will recognize familiar names such as ChimSeDiNang and Bibi to name a few. Though the language spoken in the videos is probably not understandable unless you learned Vietnamese or Chinese, the matches speak for themselves. Tournaments are hosted on a regular basis with real money prizes.

These people are absolute experts at the game, perfectly in tune with every aspect of each civilization, and reach consistent 13 minute Bronze Age times with near perfect executed strategies. Though incredibly fast paced (speed is the key, if you didn't know that already!), these matches are so much fun to watch, especially if you want to learn a thing or two on how to get better at multiplayer. You will never hunt Gazelles the way you did before. Your build order will change. And, if you are really keen into getting faster, learn about hotkeys. Forumer Bichho dropped by us again to share some of these streams, which you can watch here:

Do people still use GameRanger and Voobly to play online?

I think they still play but the community not as big as Vietnamese and Chinese. It's hard for you to find a good match
