Insight Studios New Year's Invitational Update - by site
We've quickly progressed through the tournament and are nearing the finals earlier than expected. Many players have been eliminated and we are beginning to see who the frontrunners are. Namely, Hazza54321 who has already conquered his side of the bracket and will be playing in the Finals round against either Jerom or Aragun. The Finals match is currently scheduled for February 11th. Exact time to be announced soon! For those of you who were rooting for duolckrad or whoever is vanquished between Jerom and Aragun, don't worry! You will get another chance to see them play the Bronze match to try and take 3rd place. Special thanks to our casters who have stepped up to the plate and came in clutch when we really needed them. If you are interested in casting for the Studio, just join our Discord and give me a shout.

You can still do well when you base your work purely on Wikipedia — I was unfortunately doing so in my highschool sometimes :D Naturally, though, that site doesn't contain everything, it contains articles that one surely cannot fully rely on, and from the scientific point of view historical books and articles have a much higher value :!:

I'm a Christian, yet no answer! :mad:

also a solid 40% of the ESOC diagram should be „drama" :kinggreen:

Read thoroughly the fluyt article, check my references and then re-evaluate. It wasn't based purely on wiki, don't make quick assumptions.

If you read carefully, you'll see I didn't make any. Just general thoughts regarding both current tendency and work with Wikipedia :flowers:

Another great issue of the AoE Times. Whoever thought of making this newsletter this should join Mensa, because they are a genius.
Just one more game of AoE then I'll go to bed.

I just had a mirror game where I used CdBs in an emergency to hold off a big push and ended up using them to shoot away my opponents hunts and build a barracks on his last coin mine. It ended with ~40 CdBs and like 6 musks fighting at once and was hilarious and... I didnt record it :(
