Re: EP4 unintended/unlisted changes & bugs to look out for

Well, there is still the cost opportunity of the crackshot. You can take 80f without it but with140f you are most certainly failing to collect it without crackshot.
115f (80+35f) seems more appropriate.

Re: EP4 unintended/unlisted changes & bugs to look out for

It is possible that 10% rr was intended because of how good vet 3 huss would be otherwise. Ugly but intended. Can consider the change but, again, it's not an EP bug. As for 140f, given the treasure standard on EP it is nothing special really. HP treasure set often includes 60f, 80f, 35f as well, whi...

Re: Big streamers playing aoe2

aoe3 is more beginner friendly. Mechanics are the dumbed down version of any other AOE game. They become a bit more tasking at higher level.
Card system is not perceived as an entry barrier.

Re: LordRaphael vs Mitoe

intra-civ and intra-patch counter system is often very well respected and that's the case for aztecs too. If anything the only unusual thing is maces doing decent vs coyo bdcause both mace great dps per cost and coyote mediocre rr%. In any case mace coyo get raped by coyo puma. Just puma cost gold a...

Re: LordRaphael vs Mitoe

Yep. But some other civs have musks and/or particular eco, hence why Jap/Brit mirror are mostly musk wars. Also China and Spain have rather solid FF so cav doesn't have much opportunity to make damage.
German/Dutch mirrors pretty much always result in cav start.

Re: LordRaphael vs Mitoe

well position is key in every battle, especially meelee ones. Blue and cyan colors definetly didn't help there. As for why coyos are the chosen unit is mainly because they can do eco damage, they can run away from the counter and force an engagement on the countered. They just fully satisfy all thos...

It just happens to be the best/most useful unit, pretty much like in every other mirror MU.

Re: LordRaphael vs Mitoe

Puma do counter them pretty fair, even tho multiplier vs light infantry can be reviewed (together with other changes). I know from experience that Mitoe should have won that fight if only he microed properly. It's hard to find mirrors with many strats possible. I can only think of 2 or 3. Aztec mirr...

Not even rusty, just motivation goes away pretty quick.

Re: Supremacy Cup Conclusion & Feedback Thread

My thoughts. I like this format. I think it should be max 32 participants. RO32, RO16, RO8 bo1 on saturday. Semifinals bo3 and finals bo5 on sunday. Map pool should be small (max 7 maps) and diversified (ideally one map of every type, perhaps excluding the most extreme ones e.g. indonesia). For stre...

Ye tho a bit disappointing since Mitoe could have just mirrored first game too and then picked India or Russia on Bengal.

You just picked China vs Dutch and did weird stuff, Aztec mirror you failed at micro and last game you suicided with Japan vs Russia and without a counterstrat.

Re: MU of the week: Iroquois versus China on Manchac

I'm not even sure iro rush 100% works on RE. On EP without TP fat age is pretty bad. With TP still not that great. I think China can have a good game with colo play even with best iro start on EP.

Re: MU of the week: Iroquois versus China on Manchac

should still play age 2 imo 5v first then adapt (4 kanya first if china chop during aging up) China FF is completely capable of getting away vs iro colonial on EP so I wouldn't advise that. There is simply no colonial approach that I see working: - aggressive colonial -> china cuts off a bit of eco...

Re: MU of the week: Iroquois versus China on Manchac

4kanya 600w or 4kanya 5v. It's important to be ready for china colo play because in that case 4kanya and few toma won't be enough to defend an fb or in general to control the game. Semi FF from Iro should work well in case China just FF even though later on China mass and combo becomes scary. Especi...
