Arabia is a Random Map in Age of Empires II.

Overview[edit]

Arabia is considered the most balanced and competitive map throughout the history of competitive Age of Empires II. Almost every tournament will begin their series with it. Be it one versus one or team games. As with all maps in ranked play, starting points, and resource distribution is randomized to an extent. Tournaments will generally produce their own version of this to tweak some of these randomized variables.

Strategic Basics[edit]

Versions[edit]

  • Arabia (default): standard Arabia map with big variety; can spawn with grass or desert terrain
    • Grass terrain: trees, more "noob friendly" with deer/sheep/boar and resources being closer to the TC, also easier to wall because of bigger woodlines and no ponds
    • Desert terrain: palms, ponds, less wood in general
  • Desert Arabia: an Arabia map always spawning with (brown) desert terrain; f.e. used in the Duel of the Century - JorDan_23 vs TheViper (DesertArabia_v4)
  • Green Arabia: an Arabia map always spawning with (green) grass terrain; similar to default grass terrain Arabia but less "noob friendly" with resources not spawning closer to the TC
  • ECL_Arabia (also used for EscapeTV Launch Event)
  • TA_DM_GA
  • MSC Arabia
  • RBW_Arabia (event example)
  • KotD3 Arabia: more open (woodlines more distant to the starting Town Centers), no cliffs, facilitating more aggressive playstyles
  • 2v2 World Cup (2020) Arabia
  • Winter's War: Winter's Arabia: map covered with snow
