AoE3Age of Empires III - New Support Ticketing System

Have you had some issue with your game or account you've been unable to resolve with the ESO account manager or forums? In order to improve customer support, the Age of Empires franchise is shifting to a new ticketing system! This will allow me to resolve your issues more quickly; and better keep track of ongoing concerns as they arise. Simply click "Support Ticket" on the left navigation bar to get started!

 

If you're looking to make changes to your ESO account, please continue utilize the ESO account tool on the right.

 

Although you may still see references to Age3support@microsoft.com on the game and site, this ticket system will be replacing email support for account assistance, installation help, or abuse reports. Inquiries to that email will receive a redirect to the new ticket system.
If you have any questions, head over to the announcement section of the forums - or give me a shout on twitter! (@RChaply)

 

Happy Gaming

AoE3Robot Launches New Blogs

Robot Entertainment has rolled out a couple of new Blogs on their home page, RobotEntertainment.com.

Life at Robot talks about Dave Pottinger's project to build a Lego Robot Logo, complete with pictures showing how much more work will go in to it than expected.

"In terms of color, the official Robot logo is on a black background. We seem to have a lot of those already, though. We have this cool sign on the building. We have another one in our lobby. And one day, this door mat showed up. At this rate, 19 more black Robot logos will show up next week. We needed some other color, so we went with the white version."

In Welcome to Art-bot Central, Art Director Dave Kubalak introduces all of the artists and goes into details about his home office/art studio.

Keep an eye on Robot Entertainment Blogs for more awesome blogs in the future.
