King you get me worried when you say something deeply philosophical and out of character :?

Re: Sign ups are opened for the ESOC Autumn Tournament 2017!

I actually don't know anything about Jakey as a player but if it is just a PR20 boosted account by someone else then I think it's fair for the tournament admins to switch that account into the groups and put the 33th highest seed in the bracket? Can that be manually accomplished? With regards to the...

Re: An alternative sepoy/india change

Sowars I don't think need a buff early/mid game, they function differently to normal cavalry which is cool.

With house buff let's see, I think India will be ok balance wise. It's just a question of how much the sepoy nerf ruins india's identity and turns it into another semi FF skirm/goon thingy.

Rajput vs goon? :shock:

Unless I missed that they have access to the wakina stimpack upgrade?

Also the photon overcharge on the TC is a bit strong atm, maybe move it to fortress.

That's your perception. Yes it is. At this point the frustration is from how you've presented what you're saying. It's essentially a language discussion. Case in point, to address your last post: It is the only significant impact (which doesn't mean it's the only impact; I didn't put the word "...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

I mentioned maybe 10 times that this is about increasing build order variety in India games. If you honestly didn't catch that I question whether you even read my posts past the "we saw too many sepoy in the tournament" part, which you kept coming back to. You are well aware I caught that...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

You keep saying that. The consulate all in is sepoy-based. Sepoy were nerfed. It's absolutely impacted, and we intended for it to be. We felt HP was the right statistic because it is most relevant when trying to balance early pressure builds, which would likely become (more of) an issue after we bu...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

7 I don't think the changes combined make early pressure builds as much weaker as you seem to think. Nothing is getting "nuked". Let's just see how it turns out. Well I'll end it there since I can see your mind is made up. If you wanted to argue from a balance perspective I'd have been co...

you mean you consulted yourself and talked about the changes to sepoys ? :D Well did you advise GS? :hmm: Also cool to see that sepoy build you mentioned earlier isn't really affected much by this change since it's a slow roll karni play that later switches to brit consulate.

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

I'm not convinced of anything. The data doesn't show 0%, though. This change affects any playstyle that heavily relies on sepoy, and we saw plenty of those. Just the fact that 3/12 builds used in the event were all ins is concerning to me. An all in is gimmicky and should only win if it was a surpr...

Oh you're still on this? I thought I had made this clear already but allow me to put it in no uncertain terms this time: The way I feel about Indians is not based on tournament data. It's based on conversations I've had with high level players, on my general understanding of balance as it is on EP ...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

We are nerfing the unit for 2 reasons. First, it's too strong, and second, we want to make sure that styles other than rush are actually viable. Currently, as mentioned, they just don't seem to cut it in the vast majority of match ups. So we are buffing all India styles. When you make a couple of a...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

The methodology is that I heard from multiple sources that sepoy are a problem in high level play, which I was under the impression is supported by tournament games in which players tend to favour builds that revolve around them. Sure Sepoy are a good unit, I think that's clear to everyone. I've be...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

Try slinged sepoy/gurka build. You age with karni mata and send 600w, trickle, 600g 700f etc. (no early consulate). Mass them from 2 raxes and do a first timing at about 7.30-8.00. Then go back and keep massing. Eventually you can add a stable and make like 5 sowar timed with 4 sowar. This almost w...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

So let me get this straight: To support a justification for the change: It's the only thing we saw them do in tournaments. Which was quickly amended to: We saw them do it too much* in tournaments After which I checked all India games used in quarter finals and up from the last 2 esoc events which in...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

I think I checked up to the quarter finals from the last event and saw 4 india games, all 4 of which don't seem to have an issue that this particular sepoy nerf is intended to target. Like I said I don't have an issue with a sepoy nerf since it seems the general consensus that it's too strong but a...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

How's the cons rush not worse? Maybe it'll involve more than just sepoy now. I guess the 6 musketeers adds to the composition. 8-) Idk it does feel the most mundane of all the options to execute, there's no choices. All the times it was used it was a straight card order build, no market. There's no...
