Re: What kind of civilizations would you like to see on this game?

They paid them lip service with that age 4 German shipment, but it would indeed be cool if they were included as an actual unit, perhaps as a substitute for the stradiot.

POLL: Should you be able to kill enemy livestock?

I don't mean deleting them, obviously. Should you be able to kill your opponent's cows, sheep, etc.? Currently, livestock provide a pretty huge eco bonus that can't be lost unless you do something dumb like put them next to a forward building that's outside the range of your TC. Furthermore, civs wi .....

Re: Which faction to pick for my playstyle and other starting tips

France is typically the recommended civ for new players because they're strong (without being OP) and very versatile. If you master them, your transition to other civs will be easier because you'll know already know all of the standard builds (since France does them all). Their strong villagers also .....

I don't agree with the professionalism argument because (1) ESOC is not an e-sports studio (and to my knowledge does not want too be) and (2) professional tourneys show the players faces so viewers can recognize them, not for hype. I don't see what purpose using people's faces for avatars would serv .....

I agree with @tedere12 's breakdown. The drop/oos cheaters do it to protect their rank or ego, or to take revenge on their opponent when they're angry about losing a game. The oos cheaters I've encountered usually accuse me of cheating and use that the "justify" the oos.
