    Hello again!

    As this wiki continues to expand, I started to realize the limitations of just using my blog as a place to promote certain people. For example, I can imagine there will be a time in the near future where I will have to leave this wiki indefinitely, and I can see how future admins and head admins around here will be irritated about having to keep editing a blog of a user that is no longer active.

    If you look at this page from the time this blog is published, you will notice 4 different sites where to promote people: a head admin’s talk page, my blog, the forum, Administrators/Requests and the site where larger wikis use to promote people, but doesn’t exist here. I find this situation compelling, and must resolve this immediately …

    Main Page Revamp

    February 6, 2017 by X~Calibur95

    Hello again everyone!

    The Age of Empires Series Wiki is proud to present new polls and several major redesign quirks within the past month as our community continues to expand. Before I continue, I would like to thank everyone who participated in our recent AoE2 tech tree revamp, especially Blapp who initiated this project. Anyway, this post focuses on revamping our main page. For those of you who have been around here consistently for quite a while, I’m sure you have noticed by now that our Featured Article, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, and Did You Know...? sections are outdated and needs new content.

    Therefore, I wanted to address the possibility of replacing the Featured Article and the Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger sections with …

    AoE II Tech Tree revamp

    February 1, 2017 by Blappp

    Hey i find the tech tree tab for the civilisations rather lackluster and confusing, so i suggest some changes:

    First of all, because not all players know the full tech tree by heart, they can't see at first glance which technologies are missing for the respective civilisation, so i plan on filling in the full tech tree to all civilisations

    Once the entire form is done, it would be easy to copy it to all civilisations and just the unavailable ones would have to be manually stroke through, plus unique units would have to be added

    Also imma add the little icons, some people (including me) remember pictures better than names (this has been done for most pages already, but the tech trees have been neglected)


    a matter for debate is whether to includ…

    Categories

    January 29, 2017 by MasterBroccoli

    Hello again!

    My current focus here are categories. I intent to improve and simplify the entire categorization in this wiki as there are redundancies and inaccuracies. I noticed others are working on categorization as well and to avoid double edits and undoings I create this blog. If you have any ideas or disagree with what I do in this regard, please share it here. I'm always happy to read other opinions.

    Recently, a melee cavalry and ranged cavalry page have been created, which I deleted, since I don't see the use to blow up the cavalry category considering ranged cavalry (note that cavalry archers already have (and keep) their own category) is only a small group of units. That's my opinion. Same with infantry, I don't see the use to split …

    A word about speed

    February 9, 2016 by MasterBroccoli

    Hello everyone!

    I noticed (and not just I) that the speed of units, though crucial in all of the games of the series, is not given enough thought here in the wiki.

    For I only play the second installment I cannot really speak for the other games, but I've noticed there is work to be done, too.

    I'd really like to agree on thresholds in the matter clarifying from what point on a unit is considered "very slow", "slow", "medium", "fast", or "very fast".

    I already did some work there and find the following applicable:

    1. very slow < 0.7
    2. slow 0.7 - 0.9
    3. medium 0.91 - 1.1
    4. fast 1.11 - 1.44
    5. very fast > 1.44

    And I think the thresholds should be different in the water, for there is only one unit below 1, the Turtle Ship, and even that one gets more than 1 with Pano…

    Well, it feels great to be back again! While I'll be more active here, I still can't remain as active as I was a few years ago. Anyhow, I came across cool sites that might be interesting for you guys. I have known this website for several years ever since I have been bored playing computer generated scenarios over and over again. Attached here are custom scenarios made by other players for both Age of Empires I & II. For those of you who have the HD version of Age of Empires II, you may have encountered cool scenarios embedded in the game that involve a creative RPG style like gameplay in which eliminating an enemy unit increases HP and attack of that unit. I had thought about creating a page that will allow us to upload and download our s…

    More info here.

    Age of Mythology will come out on the steam store in about a month's time. Just like the AoEII HD edition, it has some altered visuals, achievements, and a view minor changes, but is otherwise the same old game we know and love. Also, the Golden Gift will be included, and will no longer have to be downloaded and installed seperately.

    Just thought I'd let you all know.

    Template Redesign

    January 2, 2014 by X~Calibur95

    Hello everyone! Hope you guys had a good holiday & a happy new year!

    As 2014 kicks off, I decided to make some major updates to this wiki, most notably the templates we have on almost every article. I noticed a couple things that are a common recurrent theme here in this wiki which is not a bad thing but can be improved. One of them is the color scheme of each of the templates we have here. Almost every template have colors featuring white and a few shades of grey which is good in one way. Although grey is also in some areas of the main page, I feel that there are too much grey in some of the templates. It might be nice if some of these templates have a particular color theme that corresponds to the different games we have. I chose dark red…

    Forgotten is out

    November 8, 2013 by Narve

    They've released the Forgotten expansion to Age II HD now.

    Having purchased and played it, I can't really find any differences between it and the free Forgotten Empires mod. Now, I knew the expansion was based on the mod, and I knew they'd be very similar, but I thought they'd at least make a few changes - maybe record some audio for the campaigns, for example. But if they changed anything, I haven't found it yet.

    In conclusion: download the mod instead, since it's free. And I hope this helps anyone that was considering purchasing it.

    There's recently been a development update for Age of Empires II HD, and one of the changes is that they're going to be working with the "Forgotten Empires" crowd.

    So depending on what happens going forward, Forgotten Empires might become an official expansion later. Any thoughts out here?

    There's also some other changes, but little has happened yet.

    For a little while I thought his list had went offline, but I found a post browsing the archives at the official AoE3 forums that mentioned it coming back online. So for those of you who may have thought the list gone for good, here you go.

    When using the list as a reference for making edits, only use the Robot Entertainment 1.02 unit list and the card list and building list under Ensemble Studios 1.00 (buildings may have different stats due to patches, but putting the original stats is better than having an empty infobox). Do not use fan patch information on the wiki pages or link directly to fan patches in official articles, mention the links on the talk pages if you feel you must point out the mods.

    What do you think will be the next installment in the Age of Empires series? Personally, I'm hoping for some historical progression myself; Age of Empires Online didn't particularly interest me. Industrial Revolution period anyone? Perhaps World War I? Remember to vote!

    ~More importantly, please note that new pages should be created the with the naming convention of: Musketeer (Age of Empires III), not Age of Empires III:Musketeer. Repeatedly doing so may result in a warning from the wiki's admins.

    That's all folks. Have a prosperous and productive day!

    Here's to hoping anyway.

    Greetings AoE Wikians!

    Due to intense dispute on whether elite unit pages should be deleted or merged throughout this wiki community, I have created a section where you can voice your opinion about this situation. The Polls section are located at the left side of the Age of Empires Wiki Home Page. Please voice your opinion as soon as possible. After a few months, the results will be set in stone and the final verdict cannot be changed. We will decide whether or not we will delete elite pages thereafter. Of course, this decision cannot be made without your support.

    ~Thank you for reading and have a wonderful holiday!~

    Hello AoE Wikians!


    Today on Age of Empires wiki, we have successfully created 1776 articles and pages. 1776 is not an ordinary number, it is a very special one. It is the year when this nation is founded by our founding fathers who signed the Declaration of Independence in the Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

    Thanks to you and your hard work, the wiki continues to exist under extraordinary circumstances. With your contribution, this wiki continues to be a success!

    Revolution

    June 17, 2011 by KazMx

    Hello AoE Wikians!

    I have a new project in mind, but let me put you in context a little bit before explaining this project. A few days ago Aj visited me in the AoE Online Wiki and ask me if we could merge the both wikis to create a consolidated one. I have still my thoughts about that, so for near future it is out of the question, but not yet totally discarded. When I came here to check how the wiki was doing I encountered with a lot of issues. This should be resolved even before I considered to merge, so I decided to start out a new project.

    The Project as you may see in the tittle is called Revolution, it is a remembrance of the Americas independence reflected in Age of Empires III. Why is it called that way? Well mainly because it is a co…

    Changes Around Here

    December 31, 2009 by Ajraddatz

    Hello all!

    This past week has seen some major changes for the Age of Empires Series Wiki. First of all, we got a new skin and main page, and now it looks like the Age of Mythology Wiki will be merging into this one.

    Once the merge is complete, the Age of Mythology content will count for one third of our articles, with over 500 articles of AoM content. These pages will be focused on by a new group of administrators, the Age of Mythology Administrators. Since Halogod35 is the only active administrator on the old Age of Mythology Wiki, he will be the first Age of Mythology Administrator.

    That is all that has happened so far; now lets move on to what will still be happening.

    First of all, the logo is going to change. It will be more focused on the …

    Age of Mythology Content

    December 27, 2009 by Ajraddatz

    To all of those editors who do not know, this wiki does fully support Age of Mythology content. Yes, there is an Age of Mythology wiki, but this wiki is for all of the AoE series, which includes AoM. If you wish to create a page about AoM, go right ahead.

    In related news, I will be trying to be officially partnered with the Age of Mythology Wiki soon, making the transfer of information easier.

    Thanks for reading.
