Fort Wars Overview

     The single most played user-made random map script in Age of Empires 3, reaching over 9000 downloads on just AOE3 Heaven alone - not counting ESO (Game Server) distribution and downloads from other fansites.

     Started in December 19 2005, Fort Wars is an AOE3 adaptation of the popular Norse Wars game by Matei, original as a mod for Age of Mythology. It features a new genre of gameplay, dubbed "bloodsport" that takes the most exciting parts of RTS army combat and blends it with a kills-based upgrade and economy system to keep players constantly in the action. It was a precursor to MOBA-type gameplay seen in later games such as League of Legends.

     Versions 0.9-1.1 done with the help of co-authors Matei and TBMike. Special thanks to Elpea for help on gathering mass data and formatting it into usable code.
