Re: The level of play is much higher now than in 2005-2010

One thing I remember seeing from back in the day was a video of Parfait explaining a game where he is playing as Germans and hes microing xbows in his opponents base and generally winning, and then you glance at his base and see that he's got all his vills on berries. I wish I could find it. Was it .....

Re: The level of play is much higher now than in 2005-2010

this conversation reminds me of the discussions around WoW when the WoW Classic remake came out like a year and a half ago. People had so many memories of vanilla WoW raids being extremely challenging back in 2004-2006, and people got mad when the old raids seemed super easy in 2019. People assumed .....

Re: Pikes too weak for their cost?

Halbs are fine, stop trying to make halbs a thing. You really want civs to be spamming halbs like caroleans? How would that be good for the game? Halbs are supposed to be very situational units with some very specific uses, which they are currently, which is good. You throw 5 of them into your line .....

Re: 1v1 Tier List

i feel like the reason sweden went from busted OP, to no one uses it in 1v1 UP, and then back to busted OP again is because they just tweaked how the torps gather, not the ability of your opponent to punish them. in OP phase 1 sweden, it was hard to deny or attack torps, and they gave insane eco. in .....

the historical wars cup

@howlingwolfpaw i saw you mention this on twitch chat so I'll give you credit where credit is due for a fun idea.

Imagine a showmatch with the gimmick that all the matches are fixed and structured around historical wars and battles. This might capture the interest of a lot of casual players on the pe .....

That would be a neat mechanic if you could sacrifice one of your own villagers for buffs. Imagine a mechanic like a revolution except instead of converting villagers to soldiers you just kill them all to make your current army super strong
