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

Still a bit skeptical re india. From my experience I feel like you need to do a bit of damage against the semi FF civs with early aggression, and on ESOC maps that means walking in range of TC fire. You don't have to walk behind the TC or anything crazy but usually to siege a house/market or shoot a...

Well you can, but it would have to include a british consulate at some early point which is pretty restrictive in terms of your build and flexibility to adapt after.

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

Sepoy right now are just too strong so a little nerf won't change the way India is played. Of course depending on what the compensation is, it might change which I will not like it ofc. I think my suggestion don't change India way of playing too much for example. Also India needs a change anyway si...

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

It creates a defender vs aggressor scenario, it breaks the symmetry in the game. That's a nice quote that I can agree with, I do like me some variety. Regarding the Sepoy specifically it seems there's a consensus it's too strong though so how do you nerf it? (if it all?) The current change I've see...

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

Since everyone's making their own patch I thought I'd chip in with my patch that I personally think will go a long way towards balancing the game:

Mine says Logician INTP, sounds about right. Fun test but I don't know what to do with the result.

Re: Announcing the ESOC AUTUMN CHAMPIONSHIP 2017

I'd love to see a map like Amazonia played competitively (or Celyon/Caribbean) just to see what people come up with. Probably won't happen in the near future for an ESOC main event though.

Re: On endurance in competitive AoE 3

You'd have to provide an argument as to why endurance is something we should care about. It is tested somewhat in later stages of supremacy tournaments when you can play up to 9 games in a series, and in the past even 11 games. We've seen a number of 3 hour series recently. This would constitute the...

Re: Ur favourite movie

Just watched Zero Days, great documentary on the stuxnet virus and cyber warfare. It's presented really well so even if you know nothing on the subject and it's not normally something you'd be interested in it's still very compelling.

Would recommend.

Re: Moving the Covered Wagon shipment to the Colonial Age

I actually think this is the sort of change that could be very healthy for the game. Even just changing the way the TC build limit works like LordRaphael or Garja have suggested so that they're buildable in Colonial or increase by 1 every age would go a long way in adding some more depth to the gam...

Re: Moving the Covered Wagon shipment to the Colonial Age

Noice maths buddy, while the calculations are clean I have a few points on your findings. Your final column isn't a metric I'd value in a game of aoe3. When comparing worth of the builds you're better off just looking at 'Res paid back' subtract 'Opp cost'. According to your spreadsheet the town cen...

Re: Moving the Covered Wagon shipment to the Colonial Age

It's probably one of those things that sounds really good but actually isn't. Maybe if you're defending a rush from aztec/india or turtling against a sioux it could be good. Other considerations are turtle water plays. But against the traditional semi-FF's/FF's I suspect you're going to be too behin...

Calling it a deck or not is just semantics. At the end of the day you're still choosing from 131 cards if you have a complete free choice.

Yeah the HC levels are a nobrainer and would definitely get us some players but I don't think it's enough to convince the bulk of the naysayers.

Re: Best TV shows

I've been enjoying the first 2 seasons of Narcos. Normally I hate stories centered around drugs but it's shot really well and I really like that they do a 1/3rd of the show in Spanish. Would recommend. Idk if the 3rd season will hold up, I have yet to start it.
