Re: Japanese strat(Anti aztec build)

I'm inclined to trust this build based on how well I've seen dyddy do with these builds. The eco is usually surprising.

That said the big question mark is how you use this against the contain. The second is how you use it against the FF/FI stats with smoking mirror.

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

You might have to also train more units before sending it. Existing units get a much greater benefit since they also didn't get the negative cost implication. 1000 food for your existing army is now 1.5x bigger seems good if you send it with 100 units on the field. Which is very doable with a well e...

Re: Consulate gather rate

Yep, the passive you get from the consulate is what matters the most for most of the game. You can tech through a few eco upgrades in early game on the way there.

Re: Consulate gather rate

Ty for the math. That's another point I didn't make because I didn't know the math. I was pretty sure it's also just not a 1-1 exchange.

Re: Consulate gather rate

So you lose X resources to get your consulate batch of muskets a little faster. Then after that you have to wait for another 400 resources from the consulate. Until that time the X resources you have given up are for nothing t1 = faster time for batch t2 = normal time for batch t3 = faster next batc...

Re: We want your feedback!

Rushes happen all the time. As a player in my last event, part of what burned me out was how often pr 35+ players were just pressuring early in a lot of my games :D. I really don't enjoy those games and a lot of my casual games on QS involve it. Plus "rushing" is just one timing of many. T...

Re: We want your feedback!

Part of that Raphael is created by some of the top players. Who were quite harsh and outspoken about anything that was an Arkansas or a Kamchatka feeling map. I would actually say that was a major factor.

Even what we have now feels like it's pushing people out of their comfort zone.

Re: A Guide to Club Rushing and Other Alternate Japan Play

Nice!

Food for thought, the fact that Japan meta is stale makes it easier to pull off these strategies. People won't expect them, especially with a little effort to hide intentions (hard to do with Japan).

It's similar to why strategies like the howdah build can work on occasion.

I'll tell you why I have been internally pushing against the fourth place prize and why I'm expecting that to be added next event. Everyone calls for a fourth place prize, for no real reason. I've had small prizes <100$ and people will pm me and say "nah it's okay, just donate it back". It...

First of all let me say that I am very pleased with the current state of ESOC. The fact that such a small comunity is able to fund such a tournament and that a group of unpaid people is able to organize an event with players around the globe amazes me. Also 2nd Chance Tourney is great for players o...
