Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Germany is wicked strong because uhlans are effectively the same and dragoons have been nerfed. I think if somehow germany's skirm mass was reduced either directly (nerfing skirm shipments), or indirectly (nerfing germany's ability vs. cav and/or artillery), the civ would be balanced.

Re: Map diversity

The map poll should be heavily reduced, to maybe 10 or 12 maps. I think the map team should focus more on fixing RE maps instead of creating new maps. Here is my idea for the map set: Arizona, arkansas, adirondacks, colorado, gran chaco, high plains, hudson, kamchatka, mendocino, manchuria, florida,...

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

RR are good when opponent is forced on some age2 type units (musks, pikes, etc.). Like vs Spain (to snipe off cannons too), china, colo civs, etc. They're terrible vs most of fortress combos, since they cost more than goons and are strictly worse doing the same role. BR are still very good btw. Mos...

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Also RR is quite interesting unit. Insanely low hp/cost but completely sick DPS vs most units lol Theyre quite expensive tbh Ye that's why its hard to say if they are good or not. Depends so much about micro. They are situationally incredibly strong. If you can somehow age-up against a player going...

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Sioux is my nominee for worst civ. I find that spain is underrated personally, and that there are fewer outliers on the bottom. Sioux either loses a matchup hard, or they win it fairly convincingly. They do quite well vs. china and spain, and are really one of the only civs that I and some of my ma...

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Can we talk about Germans? According to the polls they went from 12th to top civ by a large margin from +5 HP on uhlans (which is only 2.7%). This cannot possibly be accurate. So the question is were we wrong then or wrong now? Going by the tournament, Germans seem a very solid pick indeed. Would -...

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

I think the basic things that I have seen is that Germany and Dutch are overpowered; brits and french are the baseline; sioux and iro are still weak and broken and while steps have been made in the right direction, more focus needs to be put on them. I have other comments but too much to say right n...

I prefer doing 300e first then foreign logging and getting crates from the french consulate. I personally think the otto vills are overrated unless you are doing karni and heavy market play.

1. So obviously the 3 fishing ship is the best non-kami shipment, but on maps with no water it gets iffy since you gotta choose between 300w and 2v. What do you think about starting market/shrine instead of shrine/shrine and getting the berry upgrade, and then civil servants and wood upgrade in tra...

Mappool wise I think its fine for tournaments but as a random map pool the maps are too all over the place. If you wanna seriously play a mu you sometimes just have to rehost a few times or pick a map. For a tournament off maps are fine but they sometimes give unfair advantages in terms of civ pick...

Re: We want your feedback!

I feel like ESOC puts too much emphasis on its gameplay content being from tournanments. Personally, I like the showmatches, casual games, guest streamers, and the Saturday Smackdown-type events more entertaining. In a tournament, it seems like the games dont get very interesting until the Ro16, or ...

A Guide to Club Rushing and Other Alternate Japan Play

One of my favourite civilizations in age of empires is Japan, and they are by far my most played civilization. They are incredibly versatile, adaptable, and most of all, strong. They are easily one of the most powerful civs on RE quick search due to their lack of map-dependency and ease in adapting....

Re: Team cards

I forget how much team 10 ninja costs http://i.imgur.com/712tCDO.png Hmm I thought it was much more than that. I mean ninja are pretty insane units just like in general so in like a 3v3 deck that would probably be a sweet card, though I think sohei would still be the better option.

Re: DotW: EP as the new RE?

EP is fine, and I like to play on it more than RE. However, team balance is essentially the same (when played on the same maps) as RE, a bit worse if anything. Also, while I think balance is better for 1v1 and the changes that have been made have been mostly effectual, I am not alone in thinking tha...
