The Rising Empires League's Inaugural Season Kicks Off This April, AoE4's First 2v2 League!

Hello Everyone,

I am extremely happy to announce the formation of the Rising Empires League! Following the widely successful Rising Empires 2v2 Showdown, the RE volunteer team was excited to prepare another team event, this time larger than any other.

A thrilling 2v2 Team League for Age of Empires IV, featuring teams of at least 3 players and up to 5 battling it out over the course of two months across three exciting divisions.

League Format:

Division 1 boasts 14 top-tier teams, each playing a round-robin league comprised of 3 matches in each series totaling six maps each and every week of the season. The Top 6 teams will advance to playoffs, and the bottom two will face automatic relegation to Division 2. What’s more, each won map earns the team’s money, and playoff participants earn bonus prizes!

Thanks to Bdod’s incredible support, we have also already met our target funding for the first month of the league, meaning teams in the first division will earn over $2.50 per map win! that is over $450 in prize money awarded to teams at the end of April.

Division 2 features 16 teams split into groups A and B, with the top teams promoted to Division 1 and the 2nd place teams joining the 12th team from the first Division in the Promotion Play-ins for a chance to go to the top flight of the competition! At the same time, a number of the bottom teams from the second Division could be relegated to Division 3 at the end of the season.

Division 3, its format will be determined by the number of participant teams after Qualifiers. Safe to say, they will be gunning for one of the promotion spots when the dust settles.

With sign-ups now open, it’s time to gather your teammates and join the action for the Rising Empires League, starting this April!

Nice, will definitely watch.

The competition has received a generous $2K donation from Bdod! with this, plus his previous $3K donation, each team in Division 1 will be able to earn over $7 USD per map win.
