Hamzah "Hera" El-Baher (born October 14, 1999) is a Canadian Age of Empires II and Age of Empires IV player who is currently playing for Aftermath.


Age of Empires IV[edit]

Hera had access to Age of Empires IV during various stages of the game's pre-alpha, alpha, and beta versions. However, it was not until the creator preview event two weeks before the game's official release date of October 28th, 2021, that Hera started actively playing and practicing.

On November 6, 2021, Hera played in the Genesis Qualifier, AoE4's first big S tier tournament. He qualified for the main event by defeating Sora Kuma 2 to 1 in a surprisingly tough match-up. In the quarterfinals of the main event, he lost 1:3 against RecoN.
