Re: the key thought

I say it everytime and cause a fight but the main difference is mechanics. :P

You're not going to go from 1st leuit to a top player switching from xbow pike to 5 huss semi.

Re: ZP: The Zoi Patch

I agree that changes on overall balance should be minimal. For individual civs there should be as few changes as possible for each civ to make them competitive. I'm not disputing that. I don't see why we can't make small (really, very small) changes to things like Grens and stuff though, with the i...

Re: ZP: The Zoi Patch

The level of overreaction is insane. Everyone needs to calm down and bit and just wait for the changes to be made before providing your opinion. For sure, I would like to add however the issue why changes are so controversial has little to do with balance. There exist an infinite number of theoreti...

Re: ZP: The Zoi Patch

I do like the idea of rolling back unsuccessful changes to keep the patch simpler. So for example rather than changing zamb range you revert the house buff and go from there. Otherwise the zamb nerf is purely in the patch to compensate for the house buff they were given. Well unless anyone is of the...

Re: What I know about the current EP team

Some of these are just balance changes, not really redesigns. Sioux I can understand. I don't think that the Teepee change was overly successful, but it was a good effort. Overall I don't think it worked as intended. Maybe the numbers are just wrong or maybe Sioux needs a redo. But you have to unde...

Re: [Official] EP change suggestion

I think map size is a biggest issue in why issues not prevelant in 1v1's become an issue in 3v3's. Just to name a few: 1. Goons 2. 30 layers of walls nr40 3. Japan I was playing a bit of team on the weekends and it occured to me just how insanely huge some of the 3v3 maps are. I believe decreasing t...

I thought guillenils was just some other guy that's been playing for ages.

Though thinking about it, it is probably someone's smurf or he would have entered a tourny or made a post on a forum or smth.

Could be that the account has switched hands also at points idk.

Re: ESOC elo ladder

I really like the PR system, it's just the odd major flaw that hugely lets it down but if tweaked would be great. Elo has the problem in that it can vary so much day to day which I'm not a huge fan of. As hazza points out it is awful at team games too. There's a lot of random 1st leuits with insane ...

Have not played this MU on EP yet with the sepoy change so would be very interested to know what other players have come up with from the India side.

Re: Map Prototype- Alberta

Yea I like it the way it is, forces aggression despite also having two towers at the TC! Very interesting map. It doesn't necessairly favour the highly aggresive civs as though they control coin early they actually can't do that much damage with their army under towers, so maybe a middle speed civ c...

I think it's a positive mechanic as it raises the skill ceiling for the game as opposed to alt-d (free gift after you screwed up) and the crackshot bug (just pick up treasures without worrying about enemy position and scouting patterns). It gives players with the extra apm room to outmicro more than...

Re: Fattening and Decay Rate

Pen adds 0.5 fd/s. According to the table the "25%" upgrade is applied to the pen boost i.e 25% of 0.5 is 0.125. If pen were a card it would say boosts gather rate by 250%. The selective breeding then boosts this boost by 25% making the total boost 250% + 250*0.25 = 312.5% Hence selective ...
