Re: Reviving ep

I havnt really put a lot of thought into what new civ ideas I would make but I do know it would take a lot of effort and care to set a high bar. Something new and interesting without being a cheap / gimmicky that is only superficially new. I wish I had better answers but I also am not tasked with so...

Re: Reviving ep

The goal with EP was to make a good RTS that you could play fairly and competitively. Everything from the map sets, anti cheat, and balance changes were carefully done. Even the changes I felt were incorrect or more radical which were pushed by Zoi/Godspeed were minor compared to what is happening n...

honestly that wall thing has nothing to do with the loss. It was the fact that I have only played france and didnt realize I was on mongols.

Its okay, no further losses are in sight! :)

Re: Mitoe is 39-0 No.1 in ranked 2v2s

As usual, my team game rating is trash...not even top 10 because Mitoe has such a big point lead. :)

Any _H2O account in team game is me. There is some guy in 1v1 making me look bad with his 1300 rating. So far I have only played 5 1v1's.

Re: Collecting Treasures With Villagers Worth it?

The main reason I never did this is because there is usually a good time with my explorer to grab it. In that case its just 40 food of profit. If you are going to do that you should pop all the tc vils in take a shot and ungarrison them. It provides a burst of damage at the expense of 1 tick of food...

Re: Legacy Tournament - sign ups and info

Thank you for bringing back the competitive civ rule set we used to use at ESOC. It’s really the most fair way to do the rules.

This event really delivers if you are a competitive player. I can’t wait to see the games!

Re: Too much ports and sweden in tourneys

Much better to have fair civ rules for any balance. It just removes a key variable from the equation. If we had those rules now then after the Sweden mirror we would move on. Instead someone just gets countered later for example. It’s just not a fair approach. It also opens up the potential civ pool...
