Hello everyone! First of all, I would like to apologize for not keeping this blog active. I must have got so many messages from players online. Demanding topics to blog on. Asking me when is the next post coming. Messaging me to confirm if it is me who writes on this blog. Yes, its me! My gamespy id is |IND|_King_AMEYA.

A good news for all those who like this blog is that from now on I’ll be keeping this blog active. Life is getting very busy for me. Soon from a programming world I’ll be stepping my foot into the management world. Tight schedules and a lot of pressures in life. Hence, I preferred to release the stress by playing instead of blogging. Sincerely, I was not managing my time well. No more excuses! I’ll be writing posts very frequently (Weekly/Monthy basis). Most of you must be aware that “Gamespy” servers have been discontinued on 2nd June, 2014. So, you can no longer play the game on gamespy. Frequent gamers have shifted to tunngle, gameranger, voobly and other VPN’s.

But this is not the end of “Rise Of Nations”. Rise of Nations is soon going to make a new beginning. It is getting released on STEAM as “Rise Of Nations Extended Edition”. It is expected to be released in June. A pre-purchase is already available for the game with a discount of 20%.

The game is expected to have a great comeback after its downfall in 2008. Why not? It’s one of the best RTS games of all times. I’ve already pre-ordered the game. You too get your copy soon. It’s a worthy game!
