The World Desert Championship (abbr. WDC) is a 3v3 Age of Empires II tournament hosted by Huehuecoyotl22 and sponsored by SeanT.

About[edit]

Games are played on maps representing existing deserts from all continents. Each map has a civilisation pool linked to the geographic region of that desert. In addition to the gameplay it is hosted to promote the work of map scripters and increase awareness of human-caused water scarceness.

One player from Vietnam Legends dropped and had no internet access for longer, so game 3 could not be restored. As the score was 3:1 after game 5, there was no need trying to restore game 3 later.
