Re: Changing water for EP 4

I am not sold on changing water if we want to maintain the game. I think we may want to shift the guiding principles a bit and consider it. That being said, the discussion on water is always good. I think people get lost in the details of games they experience. To me the issues are these: 1. Free h...

Re: Changing water for EP 4

Please remember that warships have stupid cards. That paired with free healing and swingy outcomes means that if your civ doesn't have better cards or even worse your deck doesn't have the same number of water cards you can't expect to win water. I almost wonder if warship cards being rethought enti...

Re: Improve by playing fast

The other thing is that on fast you cannot keep up easily. So the list of mental priorities that you have is different. Just not a fan overall.

Re: [How To] Delete Resign - Powerful Strat!

You are missing the point. It's not about how efficiently you can delete your stuff. It's about showing your opponent how good your APM is by deleting things individually as fast as possible. (Actually it's a nice way to blow off some steam in a very non-Physical competition).

Re: Stagecoaching early isn't even that good

XP is the game's most valuable resource until 9 min or so. It's probably worth getting those extra xp passes in before upgrading to stagecoach so that you have that important crate sooner or have an age 3 shipment when you ff or you can ship your unit shipment earlier to hold a timing or something ...

Re: Are there any matchups you've never seen in your life?

Sum from 1 to 14 is easiest :P that's a nice equation you found there, how'd you see that? If you pick a civ A, it will have 14 different match ups. Then pick another one B, it will have only 13 different match ups left, because one was already counted (A vs B). And so on, until you reach 0, so the...

Re: Are there any matchups you've never seen in your life?

find unique pairings of 14 items =

(n * (n-1))) / 2 = 14 * 13 / 2 = 91. Then add back in the mirrors, 91+14 = 105.

If you could both sides then its 91*2 + 14 = 14* 14 = 196?

This is easy to do wth many programs that are not special to aoe3. The game uses p2p which means you have to share your ip to the person you connect to.

I just did a handful of players that I was interested in and that had a large sampling of games in events. The large sample of games is an important one. Yes, my win rates were much better prior to that last finals! Thanks raphael!

Re: Going agaibst brit vc

It's actually almost always worth doing. Brit houses build slowly and cost a lot of wood. If you kill a few of them it ramps your shipments and slows them down quite a bit. VC is probably the only context I could see where you should avoid a house with otherwise idle army. Plus the intel it provides...
