diarouga recs

Hi everyone,

My Google Drive space is getting full so I decided to delete my aoe3 recorded games (not like I'm ever going to watch these).
I don't expect a lot of people to watch these legacy games, but who knows.

Re: Blind Civ Showmatch Episode 4 - TheViper vs DauT

If a very talented player spent 5 years tryharding aoe3, he would become the best, agreed. However, I don't believe that a sc2 or aoe2 pro tryharding even one year would become the best aoe3 player, that's like saying a GO champion would easily reach GM at chess. RTS games are different and while be...

Re: Is it possible to make a living playing Aoe3?

How can you live with 600 bucks per month in France or Germany? Housing is at least 300-400 per month, even outside big cities, and then you have food (10 bucks a day ie 300 per month unless pasta is the only thing you eat), and that's without tax, electricity, buying other stuffs etc. There is a re...

Re: So what's the Aztec meta now?

Well it's been like that for what ? 6 years now. It's the least played civ in the game so people don't really care about it.

Re: Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition — Update 20322

It would be a completely misguided change for casual people, because they are not gonna feel a 5% coin gather rate increase. I think they just look at ladder winrates without much interpretation. Dutch is hard to play for newer players so the civ probably have a terrible total winrate on the ladder...

Re: Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition — Update 20322

for real, who is the "balance team" ? is there any top played with a NDA working with them, or the balance team is just a bunch of aoe2 players looking at a excel sheet of winrates? Probably a bunch of clueless people. If there are top players involved, then their opinion surely isn't lis...

Bring back random crates. No. Yes, cuz fixed crates push civs into certain specific starts unless ofcourse you have abundant start like deccan. It's pretty clear from posts above how a crate change has suddenly changed the start of Japan. Nope, it's actually the opposite. With wood start, Japan can...

Re: $1K Table Topper - February 2021

Could maybe self select a cup? like gold cup, winner gets 500$ Silver cup winner gets 250$ Bronze winner gets 50$ so you choose your cup based on what skill level you think you want to realistically win at. Should be something like 700 100 Coaching You don't want to give too much to the silver cup,...

Re: $1K Table Topper - February 2021

Ye, in general you don't want to rely too much on the ladder. It's accurate overall, but you can get or lose 200 elo depending on your time zone, your civs, you win streak etc.
This month it seems ok as the players selected are top5 players, but this is not the greatest system.
