Re: Basement Insight Charity Telethon 2017 Raises $1,804 for Charity

Re: To re, or not re: that is the question!

It's also a shit ton of responsibility for the caster, tbh. When I cast, I don't wanna be in that kind of situation where I need to decide if the match point of a RO8 series has to be rehosted or not (knowing perfectly well that I will get flamed for my decision regardless of what I My surprise at ...

Re: To re, or not re: that is the question!

Restarts are allowed in the case of (unintentional) cheating. I really don't care anymore because this rabbit trail has gone so far that it's not even relevant anymore. But yes, false starting is cheating. Cheating doesn't have to be intentional, and due to the fact that as you said false starting ...

Re: To re, or not re: that is the question!

No I didn't re-frame my argument, I just went into more detail because you we're equivocating two things that were clearly not the same because you chose not to see the differences. Fact's remain that in all the examples you gave restarts are issued due to cheating. You're really going down the lin...

It's not person A has an advantage over person B and person B has a disadvantage to person A, Its person A has an advantage over person B because person A cheated ( false starting), and Person B has a disadvantage to person A because person B made a mistake.

Re: To re, or not re: that is the question!

What does that have to do with today's game? LR made a mistake that most likely would have cost him the game, that's his own fault and his alone. I thought the 2 min rule was made to allow for a re in case of unfair spawn or hunts. Refuting a point that it doesn't happen at all in other sports. In ...

Re: To re, or not re: that is the question!

false starting is not comparable because its restarting for the exact opposite reason. You restart a race cause someone has an unfair advantage . This game was restarted because someone was at a fair disadvantage . My point is they don't disqualify the person who made the mistake. Are you really go...

Re: To re, or not re: that is the question!

It's different for each sport based on the consequences of re-starting. Only until fairly recently athletics events would allow false starts to be re-run since you can easily go back to your original starting position. I don't know if it was down to the hassle it caused live tv or to effects on othe...

Re: To re, or not re: that is the question!

If it's genuinely a mistake and nothing of substance has occurred in age 1 I don't see why you wouldn't rehost? Now if an important part of a strat had been revealed or someone crushed age 1 then you'd need both players consent really, and it'd be totally fair for the other guy to say no. But when n...

Re: Kaiserklein vs PrinceofKabul

The walls were there only to trick prince into thinking I was going greedy, and also to prevent him from scouting my 700f first (though I apparently left a hole somewhere so I kind of failed on that part). 7 got it completely right there.

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: 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. ...

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...

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.
