Looking Back at Red Bull Wololo

History trembles with the weight of legendary battles won and lost since the very first Red Bull Wololo tournament in 2020. Let us take a glance back through the ages and see how it all began.

Spoilers below from the past Red Bull Wololo tournaments!

The First One

From the first spark of Red Bull Wololo, it was evident that we were witnessing something unique. The tournament was one of the first of its kind to utilise the newly added “Empire Wars” game mode, which allowed for more fast-paced and thrilling games, captivating audiences worldwide. With a prize pool of over $22,000.00, the competition was fierce. After an exhilarating grand final between TheViper and Mr_Yo, the first-ever Red Bull Wololo champion Mr_Yo was crowned.

Red Bull Wololo II

It wasn’t long before the flames were reignited and Red Bull Wololo II was announced, but this time, the stakes were higher than ever with $30,000.00 on the line. The tournament proved that anything was possible – expectations and player seeding meant nothing in the level of competition we were witnessing. The games were sharper, the show was greater, and the competition was blazing with two new finalists. Liereyy and Hera both met in the grand final after fighting through the many challengers on their path, before ultimately Liereyy was crowned as the champion of Red Bull Wololo II.

Red Bull Wololo III

With Red Bull Wololo III, we saw the tournament format evolve. The thrill of group stages and nail-biting eliminations pushed the players to their limits. In an unforgettable final between DauT and Liereyy, expectations were deified and DauT snatched victory from one of the most highly-regarded players in Age of Empires.

Red Bull Wololo IV

Red Bull Wololo IV embraced the epic Viking spirit with a diverse set of themed maps; players were transported to a world of longships and brutal raids. Sixteen entered the fray, but only one could reign supreme. Yet, through the chaos, Hera and Liereyy met again. As the dust settled, through their undeniable dominance the Red Bull Wololo throne was reclaimed by Liereyy.

Red Bull Wololo: Enthrone

History changed forever with Red Bull Wololo: Enthrone, the fifth iteration of the event. The legendary Heidelberg Castle became the battleground for this breathtaking tournament. The Red Bull Wololo had outgrown its online roots and became a spectacle with players battling against each other face-to-face, in the confines of the castle walls. This was where TheViper challenged Liereyy for his crown, and after uncontested strategic brilliance, TheViper ascended, becoming our Red Bull Wololo champion.

Red Bull Wololo: Legacy

In 2022, another siege was on the horizon. Red Bull Wololo: Legacy, the sixth iteration. In a celebration of multiple games in the franchise, we witnessed a display of dominance across several titles, once more, in the grand Castle of Heidelberg. The roar of a first-ever live audience fueling the players of Age of Empires, II and IV. Chim Sẻ Đi Nắng, TaToH, and MarineLord, each a titan of their chosen title, emerged victorious.

We hope you enjoyed this quick recap of past Red Bull Wololo events. You’ll be able to watch the upcoming Red Bull Wololo: El Reinado on the Red Bull Gaming YouTube and Twitch channels. We hope to see you there!
