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...

This is the best place to do that. The goal is to have this forum be the forum for AOEO.

The development work is not being done directly by ESOC! Wanted to make sure we weren't taking credit for work we are not doing :).

Re: How to get better

What a gross oversimplification. Macro? Micro? Army positioning? In-game adaptation and decision making? All the small things which can snowball into a sizeable advantage? Jerom is not gonna change his point of view! :). I agree with all of what you said. At the PR 24 level playing port mechanics a...

Re: ESOC WarChiefs Classic: Rules and Tournament Info

Because you shouldn't get increased advantage (e.g. More civ options / less diversity needed) because you are losing in a series. no, that is correct. But you should also not make the same civ rules for a bo5 series as a bo3 series in a format that clearly doesn't support this. The rules for a bo3 ...

Re: Welcome AoE:O!!

As far as removing forums from view entirely, that is something that may come. We are moving in steps here. Right now the AOEO theme for example feels a lot like the AOE3 one still.

On user counts, for AOEO the number to compare to the ESO population is the players logged onto the server for pvp.

Re: Elorating ladder actualization

Well if you have played in an ESOC tournament that is currently the only way we have to link ESO accounts to forum accounts. So its possible no one from Australia has both played a ladder game, and an ESOC event on the same ESOName and with their country set on ESOC. A Phase II of this tool will hav...

Re: civ rules for twc tourney are dumb

What would you do? Need some solutions rather than just vague unhappy comments. I put a fair amount of thought into how to make a tournament which would feature most of the TWC matchups without being easy to abuse matchup issues. Seeding has to be done as it is. And we have group stages and preseedi...

TC goes down on 15 pop so no real gain. He spent the entire time aging up with 2 less vils than he could have?

Re: To age 1 HD or not to age 1 HD

I am pretty new but I was able to 13 vil age up as greek while getting the tech. TC time is pretty much on time. I can't see a reason not to do it. The games I watched I believe greek does a 13 vil up if they intend to fast tc anyway.

Originally wasn't double spain but spain seemed like a good match for two of the natives so we went with it.

Re: ESOC WarChiefs Classic: Rules and Tournament Info

You need to look at it this way: in a BO5, it's the first game + 4 games. First game is just nats but it doesn't matter because you have civs reset at game 2. And then it's 4 games, so 2 first picks for each player, which is 2 diff nat civs. With the native from game 1, it means that you can play a...
