    Hey Siegers! It’s the sad duty of us here at Microsoft Studios to announce the decision to begin the process of sunsetting Age of Empires: Castle Siege, to ultimately close the game on May 13, 2019. Though we’re saddened to be ending this chapter of the Age of Empires franchise, we look back with immense gratitude for the support, patience, and passion of our community over the years. What does this mean? From May 13, 2019 Age of Empires: Castle Siege matchmaking services will cease, which means the game will no longer be playable. Until then, you can continue to play Castle Siege as normal. As of now, Gold will no longer be purchasable. You will be able to continue earning your daily free Gold from trade routes until closure. In addition, we are refunding all purchases of in-game Gold from the past 6 months, beginning with purchases made on May 8, 2018. Players will be able to spend what Gold they have until matchmaking ceases on May 13, 2019. These forums will remain open until Dec 13, 2018, after which they will be archived. We encourage all our forums users to join further conversations about the Age of Empires franchise on the official Age forum at forums.ageofempires.com. More information is available on the Xbox Support Page for Castle Siege. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for playing with us!

    But seriously, Joe, that’s a really weird way to announce Age 11.

    You know, for being a quirky little mobile app to keep the AoE flame lit until MS was able to move forward with another RTS sequel, I’d say AoECS sure has exceeded expectations. It’s not my favorite AoE game and is going to be much easier for me than when we lost AoEO, but I sure will miss it and think fondly of the community. I’ve never been dragged deeper into a community than this one, and it’s always been a pleasure. I made some legit friends here, and I know almost everyone here has, too. I’ll even miss the people I didn’t like and the people who genuinely freaked me out. What a crazy game for us to get addicted to. Love you guys.

    Sell it to Smoking Gun with heavy contractual obligations to preserve the integrity of the AoE brand. If you don't the AoE brand will forever be branded as a transient game that dies in a few years and not the epic brand it should be. Who here still plays Mario or Asteroids? I may not play them alot, but I still enjoy them a couple of times a year. I still play the AoE games (and so do others) when that nostalgic urge hits. Use this as a fundraiser.... "Buy Gold and Save Castle Siege!!" You might be surprised at the response.

    So sad! Can't say I'm extremely surprised. The game has seemed to be dying for about a year now. I do appreciate getting 6 months notice. Hey, shoutout to all the Motley Crew from Forum minigames some months back. we could repeat that effort now, maybe with multiple alliances if enough were interested. No one could buy gold this time so starting on an equal playing field, we could all create new accounts and see how far we could progress in 6 months. @Wicked Wulf, @PleasedClown463, @Chuggles22, @EvaD, @EntireBroom Jr, @DoNotBurn, @Cavalry Cat, @Kicho, @recycle ar, @mmali386, @Traders51, @Smirky, @SuatKelem, @east puppet, @AnotherRiddle, @POORFELLER, @Wicken Wonder, @Septerror43, @mannerheimlich, @smashinggnat, @seapetals , @Mannerheim North, @Smashing Gnat, i may have missed a few tags, and some just wont show up. @SeaPetals. hahaha, there it is. hope you're well SeaPetals. but yeah, if i missed mentioning anyone from Motley Crew, apologies. my recordkeeping is not always perfect.

    Very unfortunate. This game allows individuals from multiple cultural diversities to mingle and chat. I have met some great people. Too bad we cant keep the game going

    Hey all I appreciate why you would post this, and the devil's advocate in me does kinda want to to do it. But at the same time, a perma-ban is a perma-ban and we can't go pardoning one person without being open to pardoning everyone which is a slippery slope. It also undermines the purpose of it in the first place. I know some of you might just be joking around but I have to give a serious answer just in case

    AoE:CS was one of the greatest tower defence games I played, because it was first to introduce comllete control of units by player and very attractive buildings design. However, looks like devs have made a wrong move by almost not investing in marketing at all. For iOS and Android, name of AoE:CS couldn't float to the top because of many games, but especially one company that is marketing gigant, and that company is Supercell, with it's game Clash of Clans. I just hope that one day I will see a game with same idea as AoE:CS, but the one that will remain and that will become huge rival to Clash of Clans. Until then, good bye guys, it was great to be playing with all of you

    I hate to be late to a funeral. Now that I mention this, aren't funerals always the occasions where all of the family including the black sheep come together and reunite, for that one last time? So yeah, bring back @east puppet!

    I have none! But it should be an MMO strategy game with medieval warfare, with alliances, sieging and defending. In short: It should be Castle Siege!

    oh, god no. It just means they are moving on with other things. SGI develops software. Obviously they havent been doing very much of that in CS for a long time. As video games have shifted away from being a marketable good and toward a marketable service, eventually the time comes where everyone just moves on. It's a pretty weird, frankly, but it's how they keep the lights on. Usually at some point after a shut down is announced, it gets followed up with an annoucned/released title. I have no idea when AoE4 is coming, but that MS is clearing out the debris is a pretty good sign that they are getting ready ready for something more. Bear in mind that after AoEO was shut down in July, 2014, AoECS was announced in August and released in September. Life cycles cycle.

    If you want to keep the game start blowing up Twitter and posting about the game EVERYWHERE! Killing a game that people enjoy playing is just plain stupid. They could easily put a small amount of development effort into this game with all the game development studios with recent purchases. Here are some Twitter accounts to start blowing up: https://twitter.com/msstudiosblog https://twitter.com/satyanadella/ We could also start a hashtag #SAVEAOECS 1. Write articles in tech forums 2. Complain to the media about it - negative news always gets attention Don't quit and throw in the towel!

    Not necessarily. This game could still be making money, but just not enough and with too little perspective of increasing the revenue. It's like keeping cattle for milk. The typical dairy cow is brought to the slaughterhouse at the age of 4 years, while her natural lifespan is 15 to 20 years, during much of which she can still lactate. But in games, much of that also stems from our own behaviour. Like our appetite for milk spurs the farmer to keep rejuvenating his cattle. We, gamers, kill the games we play, because we fly to each new one like a butterfly from flower to flower. To such an extent that player retention isn't nearly as important as player attraction. If you want to make a killing profit, attracting large amount of players is where it's at first and foremost, followed closely by playing on dopamine releases and some mild gambling. Retention is secondary, important still - no way to milk a cow that's not standing still - but secondary. So what remains to those that like their games lasting for life, is to play standalone games, or games that are freeware and can be privately hosted. Or accept that all good things come to an end, and be grateful for the time spent enjoying them. I sure am.

    Can we all get unlimited gold to try to max everything out/speed up troop training so we can basically do everything in the game before it shuts down?

    All good things come to an end too soon, and all bad things not soon enough. So long, and thanks for all the fish!
