Re: sound bug

I could see a technical case for Vsybc helping because of how replays work in fast mode. My sound bug happens when I have other audio sources playing along with the game. I believe that also influences it. I lose sound in team games way more because I listen to music and want to chill. Then I lose s...

Re: What's you biggest mis-macro?

Market trading is bad unless you need it now. If you can use your misbalance to move vils to new reaources that’s ideal. Also not reflected in your resource balance is how well distributed your vils are on resources. For example do you have 5 vils on each mine or did you send 3 vils to a further min...

Re: Modular Build Order

The issue with these approaches is that there are many factors that set you off balance. For example, missing units, changing compositions, Villager walking time. Also with Aoe3 you have crates coming in which shuffles things. The goal is to chop as little wood as possible and then mine as little g...

Re: How do you become OP at AOE3?

If you took all the Aoe3 players and put them in an isolated setting to play sc2 the level of play would remain low. Mechanics wouldn’t develop nearly as much as there are simply less people pushing the path forward. Look at the isolated small Mac community and how far behind their skills were. Also...

Re: How do you become OP at AOE3?

I think the size of the games community and the competitive scene for it are the main reason you might feel mechanics matter less. There is a constant decline in skill level in older games like AoE3.

Re: How do you become OP at AOE3?

Mechanics matter a lot. I’m finding it’s hard to judge team fights because when I say go the path forward may not be as obviously. I end up calling fights we lose as I think it’s because we don’t fight them the same way as I would. You can quickly see windows of opportunity open and close with pract...

Re: EP 5.0.x Beta [2018-05-08]

We need a beta channel to validate that the patch we push works before pushing the final out. Being able to test balance on it is a plus, not the reason it exists.

Re: Will servers ever come up?

Part of the reason EP hasn't caught on with lower-ranked players is because it hasn't been marketed towards them. Did anyone ever go to those people and ask them what changes they'd like to see? I doubt it. That's not to say the EP Team did anything wrong - EP was and is for higher ranked players w...

Re: "Team Maps" Cuts

Take feedback from top team players with a grain of salt. At one point the commentary was that all EP maps were not meant for team and that the patch didn’t care about team. They would rather play on Himalayas and Silk Road than the Ep maps. I agree if fixed are needed we should do them. Generally w...

I am talking with Microsoft on this issue. They are looking into it as far as I know. Edit: Apparently it’s been fixed today. Good stuff.

For everyone one example you have of seiging a tc being good there are ten games won by some guy popping shit out of the tc. Generally you are way more vulnerable attacking a tc and you have done zero samamge until the 6500 tc goes down. Killing housing is way faster which is harder to coordinate a ...

Re: Sieging Manor Houses

Pretty much always. If your units are idle and they know what you have then you should be seiging. If it’s a far out house and your too scared to push him then you should seize it. You get the experience from the kill. They lose the vision and population space. Most of the game it’s unlikely they ar...
