Re: The mighty Swinger

I talked to my brother today and after complimenting each others outstanding taste, we started to talk about AOE 3. Apparently there was a player by the name of "Swinger" 8-10 years ago, according to my brother he had the coolest strategies and could turn a seemingly lost game around to h...

Re: so litte sioux play in this tournament

People don’t like the civ sadly. I’ve played it in niche tournament situations, even using it on high plains vs Japan where I believe they were favored without any changes made to their teepees. Their fortress comp is so smooth and if you understand how to work that composition to can really control...

Re: Biased mapchecking?

These are a lot of the older ESOC maps still being played today. I think it’s a combination of a bit less testing of spawns as Garja said and also the community having their standards creep up because of the maps being way better. It’s pretty easy to hit it out of the park on balance if you compare ...

Re: Biased mapchecking?

Funny, I have actually sat with Garja and spawned maps tons of times and he seemed reasonable in his evaluation to me.

Have you also spawned maps with him to test balance?

Re: Biased mapchecking?

Jerom, I’m sorry but your comments are here negative and wrong at the same time. They slap people in the face who have improved the state of the game significantly. They end up also providing no real solutions. What is anyone going to do with “make tournament ready versions of the maps” when you kno...

I will have to forfeit and pull out of the tournament. Unfortunately my life situation has changed considerably since I signed up. Even if we play this series and I win, I will not be able to play my future rounds until it is far too late to keep the event moving. Best of luck vs Mitoe, and sorry to...

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

The point is that VC is just not better enough even when you use it to the fullest. If you can open the rec and say “yeah but 5 seconds faster villager is a key reason for the results” then you already lost me. You lost me because I’d rather have the flexibility of not maxing manors and building the...

VC first - Colonial age at ~4:10 with 7 manors built during transition. - Last manor starts building at 5:00 - 5:10. - 2 barracks are done by 5:30. - Vill count at 6 minutes is 36. - Longbow count at 6:00 is 8. - Longbow count at 7:00 is 23. - Longbow count at 8:20 is 45.

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

Sure, so like I said in twitch chat I think you've completely ignored critical points in your calculations: Your build doesn't re-invest the VS gained from 5 vil Taking the numbers from your logs we can see there is a 40 second window before all your manors complete from the 700w. Let's take a look...

Re: Brit deck 3 rockets vs infinite 2 rockets

In sup I would probably roll an age 1 eco card or estates maybe. You should send two factories and those can make rockets if you need them. Typically when you get age 4 as Brit your already 10 shipments in so delaying factories is a huge mistake at that point. If I had to choose probably three rocke...
