Celeste Community Challenge is a series of showmatches for Age of Empires Online hosted by various members of the Project Celeste community for in-game rewards.

It has run intermittently for over 50 different events over the past 4 years in Project Celeste Era AoEO. It is both a tribute to the original AoEO Community Challenge, casted by IamPREZSTEVE in 2014, and a way to promote PvP in the PvE-centric title.

Events[edit]

2018: Community Challenge 1[edit]

Broadcast Talent[edit]

Originally promoted with a very different lineup, the first Community Challenge in the Celeste Era would prove to be a blast, with GiveUAnxiety, RecoN, Warlock & more all substituting.[1] Organized by PF2K, but with a lack of support for a second round, it would take 10 months for a sequel.

2019: Community Challenge 1[edit]

Broadcast Talent[edit]

In his eagerness to boost Oceanic activity for the game, and improve as a player, Ardeshir would be the next player to attempt scheduling the event.[2] He would have limited success in drawing in notable players initially.

Broadcast Talent[edit]

This time, the return of the showmatch event would hold the attention of much of the community, and net casting and gameplay from a slew of players.[3]
