Re: Dutch - change proposals

Nah thatd be epic. Then you really have better france, and they wouldnt even need to xbow/pike anyways. Just musk huss which would be insanely good and solve many matchups. Germany is a hard match up and would possibly become a great match up since musk huss is good against them. Spain would be easy...

Re: On the resource checking...

The problem is he's always pissed when his maps are rehosted, no matter how unfair the spawn was. For him as long as you have the "minimum guaranteed" resources, everything is fine. So having only 1 hunt when your opponent has 3 on fertile crescent is fine because 1 hunt is enough, you kn...

Re: On the resource checking...

Reread your sentence please :chinese: Anyway, all this hunt counting it's quite bs honestly. Stuff like 4th hunt etc. means you're talking about midmap and 20 minutes into the game. Thing is if you want different resource patterns to happen you either code every pattern singularly or just give a de...

Re: On the resource checking...

Theres a difference between asking for fixed hunts and not wanting to have one player sometimes spawn with 3 safe hunts and 1 decent hunt while the other gets 2 safe hunts and 1 worse hunt than the other guy's fourth hunt. Thats not randomness, that is bad map coding.

Re: On the resource checking...

Randomness is the best thing of this game. Thank you for not reading the post anyway. ok so lets play all games on RE bayou, sonora and patagonia from now on! I still rather play those maps than have perfectly symmetrical maps with 3 hunts every game. I actually rather play tetris. At least I get r...

Dutch would be so awesome if they'd get musks, xbows and then skirms age 3, I'd wager.

Re: How do you decide bets?

Btw I found that looking at their recent games and seeing what sort of players theyre beating gives a good idea of how good a player is. Generally Id look for good benchmark games (ie games against a player whose skill I know rather accurately). That can be much more telling than pr elo nowadays.

Re: How do you decide bets?

I often base it on how good I think someone is. Ive played most majors and seen most colonels+ play so I have a good judgement generally.
Sometimes I even go on the inside and ask the players themselves. Tbh if Im betting from elo and dont see easy good odds then Im not actually taking the risk.

Re: On the resource checking...

The entire problem is that garja insists on having gamebreaking random elements in the maps. Maybe its fine for ladder games, but some of these inbalanced are really giving an unfair advantage to one player. It seems silly to be annoyed by rehosts when you are literally the one causing them.

Actually a sacred field is superior to a TP at a certain number of yaks, something like 10 or 12?

Re: I made a thing

I used to tilt my mother playing this game because I would always be trying to methodologically solve it while she'd be playing on intuition and didnt get the way I'd solve it. Still can't tell if its mathematically possible to use some sort of strategy that solves it 100% of the time or if just dev...

Ive always wanted to solve this stuff mathematically and with the one of each color I think that amounts to a 100% winrate quite easily.

Re: skirm / goon micro

In skirm goon vs skirm goon battles the initial poking is possibly more important than the actual fight. Try to make sure you're watching your army when its moving forward or otherwise attack move it forward or move it back while macroing. Once the fight actually starts, the only real decision is wh...

Re: Tournament Rules & Discussion

That's a good point, there's no maps for the first stage of the bracket. RO96 refers to the first stage of the elimination bracket since there's 96 players still in contention even though only 64 are competing and 32 seeded directly into the RO64. It would probably be easier just to call it the RO1...
