Re: [AoE3] ESOC Spring Tournament — RO16: LordRaphael vs GoodSpeed

Build was fine, in hindsight 600w should've been 9 pike maybe but other than that no regrets. But yeah, we both did our share of throwing that game, it's no indication of civ balance. I found that lordraphael did much more throwing. But I also think normal ff is much better. Rewatch the game and ta...

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Re: [AoE3] ESOC Spring Tournament — RO16: LordRaphael vs GoodSpeed

I took a very bad fight in that game, if anything it shows the match up is pretty even. If you look closely at the position before the fight I was fine. Just sent 1000c, manchu next, scores were even and China scales better than French. In my opinion the build order you did was just bad and raphael...

Well funnily enough sudmakmak probably is the one reasoning with emotion, but I find there are lots of weird opinions that I dont get.

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

I like that with esoc patch, bottom tier civs dont feel so far away from tier 1 civs as it used to be. Also theres less disparity from tier 1 and the rest (compared to RE) Yeah definitely, the top and bottom are continuously being shaved off. Balance is good, opinion on balance need a patch though ...

At -10 hp, hussar, dragoon and cossack need less hits which is qui...

Re: Map diversity

Map diversity is okay but honestly the current map pool is unplayable as a random map pool. Its frustrating.

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

I'd like to make a slightly more structured balance analysis than simply leaving a vote in a poll. Let me begin by defining my rating system from 1-10: Agree on almost all points, although Ger is favoured against Otto and you overrate Spain. Imagine playing France that only has a 200g+tower age up ...

Re: Map diversity

I have a few things to say about the mappool as a whole. There's about three points of small criticism: Some important guidelines that are sometimes off, the consistency of some maps and then the mappool as a whole. A few guidelines I would establish in terms of hunts and mines: Your 2nd hunt must a...

I'd like to make a slightly more structured balance analysis than simply leaving a vote in a poll.

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Sioux is my nominee for worst civ. I find that spain is underrated personally, and that there are fewer outliers on the bottom. Sioux either loses a matchup hard, or they win it fairly convincingly. They do quite well vs. china and spain, and are really one of the only civs that I and some of my ma...

I think spain ff can do really well against a lot of civs still. You just kinda die to brits which are really popular right now.

Its good vs nothing, weak vs quite a number of things and mediocre vs all else I recall seeing him beat prince's brits with them. We just need a good iro guide, I dont have a ...

Germany wasnt as bad as people thought they were after the nerf, thats why it swinged so much.

If you nerf the shipments by 1 uhlan each then ger might be back to OP.

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

I find the abundance of no TP maps a problem of the map pool. TPs are too relevant for balance and no TP maps dont offer good balance at all.

Yes port can for sure win and I think for russia you can actually say see tournament (the throws were unfortunatrly for you obvious enough imo, you can really see how russia beats dutch. Although that bsop bo was awesome). And then I feel like sioux might be one of those civs thats relatively good a...

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

I dont even know why no tp maps count for balance considerations. Seems impossible to balance the game around that :/ About aztec: surely its not as hopeless as people say but I was attacked for saying that earlier so I will claim aztec beat dutch because others think so. But I dont think dutch ends...

Ain't giving that out for free. If you wanted to be a super detective you could probably get the idea off one of the players I used it against though. Otherwise I'll save it for if I come back or it goes into a video.

Well if you dont mind Ill go back to claiming the mu is unwinnable then.

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Well when I tested it and tried to refine the bo as spain it was. Theres very few 70/30 match ups.

But even if those 4 match ups are the winrates you posted, then dutch cant be a top 3 civ right?

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Dutch is not in a bad spot atm. They are stronger than re, and only hard counter vs Dutch are currently Brits, which we saw few times in tourney. While I stil think bank cost should be reversed to 350f/300w, with bank limit reduced to 4, they can certainly live without it. So you think spain, germa...
