Re: What is your FAVORITE ESOC UI 2.2 Map to play on / view games on?

Kamchatka i used to like and it fell out of favor for me. Manchuria Hudson and high plains are staples for me. Really all the maps are great though.

Re: Why can tourney games only be casted/streamed by ESOC?

While I am explaining our position on a lot of these rules we are all listening to this feedback and thinking about what we can do better.

Just a general comment.

@Kaiserklein That is like having a coach beside you, which you do not oppose. No reason to have rules that cannot be enforced - it benefits cheaters only. Its an online event.

Re: Why can tourney games only be casted/streamed by ESOC?

SO whats gonna happen with GUA vs Samurai?? GuA streamed his own games on his channel but didnt advertise ESOC brand.. Is this ok? Or will the game be void and both players get disqualified? Read this thread or read the rules. Streaming first person in games that are not casted is okay. Where is th...

Re: Why can tourney games only be casted/streamed by ESOC?

But is an authorised caster allowed to start an unscheduled stream, if there is a series being played and he is avaible to cast? 55 If a caster arranges something and gets in touch with us. We are almost always around at peak times to give the go ahead. I am pretty sure you need approval to start t...

Re: Why can tourney games only be casted/streamed by ESOC?

His question is: If it is not streamed on ESOCTV, it does not hurt the ESOCTV brand. If both players agree to playing with observers, ESOC probably shouldn't enforce protection of the players. If neither the protection of the players, nor the ESOCTV brand is a problem, why is it still not allowed? ...

Re: Eco theory vs musk attack card

Never thought of doing the math this way. I have said in the past that doing math you have to be careful about assumptions. You mentioned these two which are what I thought as well. 1. You assume resources are unlimited. That is to say you get the full 10% benefit (lost in walking time). It also say...

Re: How to beat the China FF deathball?

China in general is weak before a mass is built. They also are weak against cav if you pressure them correctly. They lean heavily on consulate muskets, Manchu shipment, and the ability to draw out cav fights (cav v cav and disciple factory). I haven't tested what you said jerom but I would buy that ...

Hi All,

Whispering,I hope you are able to play with GUA. Can you propose times that work for you today, the weekend, and Monday.

GUA - You have to really make this work as you missed the time.

Thank you in advance for the understanding on both sides! Missing scheduled times happens!

From what I hear there is probably some explanation. But it's not clear enough. To say either way.

Re: The final days of the Group Stages approach!

I can promise you if we told people we are making brackets for the next tournament based on what we feel people's skill level is, that would upset people a lot more than the ELO does. It also just is not fair or ethical. It allows for personal bias to seep into the brackets. It's also just not fair....

Keep watching content and playing. Make sure to be humble in the way you think about the game. You don't have all the answers and something's may be counter intuitive.
