Re: ESOC AOE3 Taunt Package

You can also use 7zip which is open source.

Use either of those programs to extract the rar file.

Then copy the extracted files to your aoe3 installation directory -> Sound -> Taunts.

Re: kaiserklein vs conquerer999

Anyone notice in the klondike game, dicks second falc got bounce hit x2. Pretty sure one falc shot at it and the cannon ball hit then bounced off the tp and hit again very rapidly.

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

Well I only did them once because it's painfully slow to do them and your right there's always going to be differences without a tool. I checked again the start and yea there is a difference in vil times though it's not 5 seconds? I thought the age 1 was better for VC also with a higher food total. ...

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

93 To clarify I tested a lot of BO's including many based around your original test where you only send 2 shipments and there is no market. I will attach 2 approx 8 min recordings for comparison. One is your original test BO with VC/700w max manors and the second is a comparative eco 3vil/5vil BO. ...

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

Well against the AI, but not mathematically processed. I did a lot of builds with and without xp and shipment limitations and yea it's all pretty similar. I think part of the reason is VC benefits more from the tool. Any overgather on lower costs has greater effect on exponential long term growth (s...

Re: Clipsh, clipsh, and moar clipsh

I know when it's happened to me it starts when you rally the vil through the TC, idk what else makes it happen. Something triggers it since it seems a lot rarer with some people.

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

Guess I'll download the tool to find out what's going on then.

I only started market since I thought it would have better synergy with 5vil first and got hd/gangsaw instead of 2 manor start which probably works better with vc 700w. With steel traps I doubt you can hit those early lb numbers.

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

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

Bit of an aside but what is the outcome of a pure eco VC boom at 6 mins GS? Can you run that in your program? At what time does full manors complete, are there any market techs etc and what is your villager count at 6 minutes (or at an earlier point.) I was just trying a build out in-game that finis...

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

It's way less than 30 seconds but your build operates in a vacuum. You can just look at your logs and see where the shipment is ticking over at 5:27 due the 5 manors completing. Early game xp gains will blow this out the water.

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

Idk 310 seems pretty huge to me. Not to mention the extra villager + vs from that. As for builds I'd assume it would be best around game plans where you spend 1-2mins doing full eco or almost full eco (like 5 cav) into 700w and full production and exploiting the VS difference to make a timing that V...

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

One thing is the 25 wood you are left with after spending 135 * 5 = 675 from the 700, so that's -50 making 304. I don't know about the rest. I would go in and debug the app but that feels like a waste of time over something like this, as no amount of gained VS will make 5v a viable first card as Br...

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

The difference at 6:27 plus the gained VS from 5v arriving 30s before that. 250 assuming vills gather perfectly efficiently. I don't know where your math is incorrect, but the sim shows it is. I'll suggest that your program is wrong then or more likely neglecting something. I did see one mistake I ...

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

Hence the point: The extra VS in the early game don't get you an extra hussar, but may enable the 5v first build to sneak in an extra market upgrade like great coat, perhaps make it easier to gather for the huss batch as well as minutemen, etc. I explain that the extra VS is a lot more than a great...

Yea I still send 700w over 5vil nearly every 1v1 game because I want the wood for things other than just pure manors.

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: What’s everyone’s sc2 rank

The old maps were unique and had atmosphere, I thought scrapyard was a cool concept. Now every map looks super boring because balance.

I played at masters and matched some gm's on the ladder back in 2010/2011 (?) I guess, though I laddered for about 4 days total since I had ladder anxiety.
