Reforming my base for the sunset of Castle Siege (And a bit of a history of me and this game)

Recommended Posts

I've played Castle Siege almost since its very start. If it wasn't because my laptop hasn't been updated to Windows 8.1 yet at the time of its release, I would've gotten it on the first day it was released.

Being the place where I first started using my game name, EmpAhmadK, Age of Empires: Castle Siege plays a big role in my heart. I was there when the game hasn't got a lot of the features it already has today. I watched the entire game and even community grow, from Age 1, all the way to Age 10. Reading that Age of Empires: Castle Siege is closing caused my heart to cease beating for a second. To me, Age of Empires: Castle Siege may not be the best game I have ever played, but it for sure is one of the best moments of my life, ever.

I still remember my first day on the game, it was early in the morning and my laptop just got updated, and I was lying down on the floor in front of the laptop waiting for it to finish updating. Throughout the entire time the only thing I was thinking of is that I will finally be able to play Age of Empires: Castle Siege, after weeks of waiting and looking at all other players in the Age of Empires Community already building their empires. Back when we were still on our old forums, I still remember asking the community on how to build a gate, and was so confused on how a lot of empires I was attacking had gates while all I could do was leave an opening in my wall because I need to get my daily gold. My first alliance was the Malaysia alliance (red crest with black diamond). Along with my fellow Alliance mates, JackRyzal, MdRasideEmpire, CoolestCHUMCHUM, and a lot more, we build up our empires together, before one day bringing our alliance to the 100th place on the leader boards and later beyond that point.

After a long time with that alliance, I decided to leave the alliance, saying goodbye to all my close friends, and I began an entirely new alliance called The Awesomes. Several days upon launching the alliance, I submitted my alliance for the Alliance of the Week, and it was then featured on the forums as the (if I am not mistaken) third Alliance of the Week. The Awesomes, undoubtedly, was pretty much a fail, as I got really busy with real life a few months after I made it, but it ran on with constant troop donations every single day from many players, before I was the only playing player left on the Alliance, earlier this year. But I had a good time with the entire alliance, and sometimes things just have to end.

And like my awesome alliance, the entire game itself, also has its end. It's really hard to accept it, and it feels sad to let it go, but I know that I couldn't really do much anymore, and I should just be grateful that at least Microsoft gave us all 6 whole months to spend our last moments together with this game.

It has been a wild and amazing ride with the game and the entire community. One day we will remember this as one of the greatest things that has ever happened in our lives, and Age of Empires: Castle Siege, will forever remain carved in our hearts, until the world ends.

Saluting the end of Age of Empires: Castle Siege, I renovated my empire as a sign of respect for the departure of this brilliant game.


And with this, I shall leave a song that I've always loved and listened to...


Farewell, Castle Siege...
