Re: E3 2019

The GaaS model is kinda expected at this point; I think that it can be done in a quasi-ethical way. I'd go as far as to say that it's been so expected that a AAA multiplayer game will have some form of long-term monetization that there's not really any new information gained to learn that it will i .....

Re: Pull" Trick" discussion

Pull trick is an unintended consequence of design. Alt-d is an unintended consequence of implementation. That makes the differences between them not just a question of their quantitative effects on how the game plays out; they're qualitatively different.

There's no way to remove pull trick without .....

Re: Music you're listening to

Darkwater is a band in the (fairly saturated) genre of melodic progressive metal. They recently released their new album their first since 2010. The album's maybe 20 minutes longer than I think it really needed to be, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. The music video's about Star Wars or something id .....

Re: Team 1v1 tournament idea

Similar ideas have been proposed and it's something that I'd like to see happen some day. I think the main issue that is still to be worked out is that no six AoE3 players ever share an hour of free time in common is a fundamental law of the universe

So what's happened so far in the New World Championship?
Round of 32 Recap

In the contemporary AoE3 competitive scene, it's around now that we'd separate the wheat from the chaff. Often, it's the point in the bracket that ESOC pre-seeds its top players, and, often, it's the point in the bracket w .....

Post-telethon money dispensary thread

well hi,

As you may know, back in February the Basement held it's third annual Age of Empires telethon in an effort to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. It was great, we raised a bunch of money, played a bunch of treaty, achieved enough clout to draw the attention of the invite spammer, etc. .....

At the sub 30 level the native civs don't see play because they're all boring. All the civs get their own gimmick that defines their playstyle; Brits get manors, Dutch get banks, Russians get cheap units, etc. Native civs get the privilege of having all of their units be unique, b .....

I don't know what the argument here is about but can you just have a Bo55 to settle it like normal people instead of airing it here? It's quite excessive. I am purifying this thread from dontay's first post here onward; please don't make me purify it again.

Re: Music you're listening to

I didn't realize you were going to listen to the whole album

It's a pretty good album I think although I've found the vocalist to be polarizing (i like him).
