Re: Consulate gather rate

So you lose X resources to get your consulate batch of muskets a little faster. Then after that you have to wait for another 400 resources from the consulate. Until that time the X resources you have given up are for nothing t1 = faster time for batch t2 = normal time for batch t3 = faster next bat...

Re: Consulate gather rate

It's not worth it to do that. I love little optimizarions but this just isn't one of them. How do you know though? I see poeple saying that all the time, but it's never backed up. I think if you play vs Azzy for example and you know that within the next minute all your vills will be idle, I think i...

Re: ESOC WarChiefs Classic

I have a feeling this tournament will be a really great success, like the first ASC Spring Tournament; we've got many good players, innovative rules, no drama, and the quirky rules make a fun and informal atmosphere; a recipe for success.

Re: Is it really irrational to play the lottery?

Won't many people pick 123456? Would that lower your profit? If not, it would bankrupt the lottery company which if I were them I would add a bunch of exceptions to my "random numbers generator" which makes sure common sequences are excluded :P So either way it seems unwise to pick those ...

Re: Is it really irrational to play the lottery?

The weird thing is that 123456 is just as likely to win as another combination, but some people would call you crazy for picking it. Even knowing this, I would still have a lot of hesitation going for 123456 xD

Re: Is it really irrational to play the lottery?

The entire point is the escapist fantasy. It can be pleasurable for others even if it is not pleasurable for yourself. Ironically the people who are quick to call the lottery a "tax on stupid" are more likely the stupid or rather ignorant or obtuse to the situation as a whole. The lottery...

Re: Is it really irrational to play the lottery?

30 euros is quite a lot for lottery though, I would never spend that much. Maybe $5 at most.

Re: Is it really irrational to play the lottery?

I would say no, it's not actually irrational (or unwise). Yes, participating costs money, but not enough that it lowers your standard of living unless you are very poor. Yet the potential profit would greatly improve your standard of living. It could therefore be argued that there is a lot of poten...

Re: Is it really irrational to play the lottery?

Playing the lottery also has some intangible benefits such as being exciting I am not sure about this, but I think it is exciting mostly due to the fact that people don't understand the concept of expected value. I don't find lottery exciting at all. I thought so too but I recieved a free lottery t...

Is it really irrational to play the lottery?

Everybody knows that the lottery has a slightly negative expected value. But expected value doesn't always determine the rationality of something. Say you are offered 1 billion dollars with 100% chance, or 2 billion dollars with 70% chance. I would take the first offer anyday, even though the second...

Re: The Spring Tournament comes to an exciting end!

If you refresh a youtube page, it counts that as a new viewer, btw. Same if you rewatch the video. So, it's tricky to say what's behind those 10x views. Some could be people who mistakenly got there and moved to another vid. That's still counted as a new viewer. Just refreshing the page doesn't cou...

My friends tell me that good beer is much more appetizing than wine.

What is even good beer? I've never had a beer (or any alcoholic beverage) that I've actually enjoyed drinking.

Re: Kaiserklein - Somppukunkku official BO3

Maybe. Sending CM is such an iffy thing to do though. For instance once he has recognized this and scouted it (which can be done quit early) it becomes a bit of a wasted card early on. Though I suppose a card that deters a rush/timing can be effective even if it does nothing outwardly... Well I thi...

It's a gnarly timing vs the current semi ff meta. Requires special 2 rax play to counter and even then...4 sowars usually shows up at just the right time.

Re: Europa universalis 4 on sale

I've owned this game for forever and have had it installed for a while too, but have never played it because I've been turned off by the idea that the learning curve for the game will be huge. How long do you think it would take to learn the mechanics? I reccomend watching this series of tutorials ...

Probably unpopular but imo the finals should be best of 7. Elaborate, then! :flowers: The series are too long, there's no way you can keep focus for that long as a player. Iirc this last one took 5 hours and the games were average length. Imagine water play with that. It reduces the quality of game...
