Re: Civilization Overview: The United States

Yea I agree with Bram, for what it's worth after playing a few games with them my initial impression is that they are on the weaker side.

I think they will struggle a lot at the 5 min - 9 min mark of the game but for sure if you come out of that well their scaling looks very decent in terms of both u .....

Re: The RøyaL 3v3 Tournament Finals

Good stuff! :biggrin:

Thx to the Royal team for putting on the event. It's great to have a setup like this that balances the line between casual/competitive quite well, the number of sign ups showed a lot of people like the format and provides the opportunity to those who wouldn't necessarily get to play or w .....

@Mitoe did the maths on it a while back showing market start is more villager seconds (this is 1.5 years ago so before DE and this patch), I copy in below.

I really do miss power rating. If the system had it's flaws fixed (high starting variance), which is easy to do, it's so superior and a darn sight cooler than elo.

The civ diversity problem would be magnified even more from aoe2 to aoe3 with this mode, can't really do it without further civ changes.

Re: Announcing the $1000 ESOC Challenge Cup!

Glad we will soon be underway!

Would like to echo the previous comments in that I am hoping for an open bracket event soon. It helps generate interest amongst the up and commers that still have a gap to bridge to the top. All 5 DE events so far have been pretty restricted.

As a Protoss/India main I can confirm these two civs are identical. :P Well ... not identical but there really is something similar about the two, I don't think it's a coincidence I played these the most.

Terran is obviously either brit/fre.

Would have to consider the options carefully, top guys could potentially screw themselves over if the ranges are not set smartly.

Often the difference between rank 1 and rank 15 can be 200 elo (this might even grow further.) You could potentially limit yourself to only matching like 15 other guys (as .....
