Re: diarouga vs snowww

For me its really interesting to see when people make artillery. The reason is that in straight up fights its a no brainer that you want cannons. But having them in a real game provides some intangible negative effects, such as less mobility. I’ve always been a believer that cannons are nevertheless...

Re: Buff spies?

I don't really think decreasing the stealth mode penalty is a great idea. I would rather just increase spy speed a bit more to compensate. Unless you mean to only decrease it for spies, in which case I don't really care. :P Yeah I was thinking for spies only; since stealth is supposed to be kind of...

Re: Buff spies?

I'd say spy original goal is : - Killing mercs/explorers - spying/scouting the map They are definitely ok for the point 1, they already do insane damages to mercs/explorers. However, they are not great for scouting. I'd say mostly because you don't want to be spotted when you scout, hence the steal...

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

I watched the entire deepmind presentation of alphago and that was still a form of brute force. No it does not calculate all possibilities, but it still has an insane amount of information and plays an insane amount of games versus itself. In that sense its still brute force; its basically solving ...

Should lancers get a buff vs vills?

One reason spain is sometimes a little weak is because a lot of your units (lancers, rods, pikes) do so little damage to vills. I hear word on the street is that spain will be buffed, so what if lancers did more damage to vills? Not necesarily their full 60 damage, but at least like 30-40?

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

It would be interesting to see an AI who has 10 000 APM, but it would also be interesting to limit it to a normal player APM and see what it spends it on.

Im just waiting for that moment in 10-20 years when an advanced enough AI will be publicly available and you can set it to master AOE3. Then we will really see what is the best.

Re: Spanish Discussion Thread

In my opinion people don’t make enough rods when going skirm rod lancer. The only job of skirm is to make sure opponent isn’t going pure goon and constantly kiting you, so should have like 10-15 of them. Next, if the rods did a good job screening the goons, you should only need 8-12 lancers to melt ...

Re: Top 5 best heavy cavalry civilizations.

Meteor Hammers aren't really all that strong on their own in big fights. It's the combination with the Iron flails that makes China's cavalry so strong. Most of the time if you have a cavalry mass larger than 15-20 units, half of your units get trapped pathing around behind the frontline units to f...

Yes. But I can also see it going the other way, with casters focusing on the big picture rather than trying to follow every little raid; and when people actually try to organize and think ahead of a strategy for 3v3, maybe we will see some cool things that we've never seen before (especially on a wa...

Re: 2v2 showmatch

Why not 3v3 showmatches? We've seen plenty of 2v2s. The extra players for a 3v3 really add an extra dimension of gameplay. Or, better yet, imagine a 3v3 rdm ESO-C tournament. Very large pool round with points for winners. Only take 10-15 games to give a statistically significant winner. 3v3 lags a ...
