In what seems to have been a slow domino effect that began with ES itself, elorating.com, a prestigious website that keeps track of every player who has ever played online in AoE3, will be closing its doors soon.

As found from Age Sanctuary by James246;
Unfortunately I have some bad news for you... elorating will stop operation in the next month or so. The costs are much higher than the income through ads. The last months its getting even worse.

To make some facts: elorating.com eats up about 130 EUR per month. In contrast, the advertising earning has fallen to about 50 USD (about 35 EUR) per month since early last year. Neither plexiq nor me is playing age of empires any more, so we don't see any future for this project. Its not that we expect to get money out of it... but we are not willing to pay such a high bill for something we are not really interested in any more. Sorry.
The German site has provided statistical data as well as accurate rankings for tournaments for a number of years, following up the 'cutech' rankings before it.

I miss that site so bad. It was perfect and made AOE so much more fun.
