Re: Clicks per minute

On top of what's already been said another benefit is that it can be an effective strategy to help build up your APM over time.

While it doesn't start as effective APM, spam can get you more comfortable playing at a higher APM which in turn leads to a higher effective APM.

Re: Low hunt maps

Ironically the lower hunt a map has the more you want to avoid making a mill transition. Making the transition from hunts to mills is so costly that if: i) You don't already have a significant eco Or ii) Your opponent is also making the transition You will get punished to the point where you will pr...

Re: ESOC Grand Tour Season 1 Playoffs

Thought I'd read the relevant rule to see what all the fuss was about. For Game 1, players will veto maps in alternating fashion until just 1 map remains. The higher seed player will initiate the vetoing. The last map remaining will be the map played upon for Game 1. After Game 1, the winner of the ...

The correct distribution is to put all your SW and villagers on wood. Mass TP's. Proceed to bathe in Uhlans.

Re: MU of the week: China vs Port on Baja California

On RE I would do as you say tedere but thanks to 70w boats you have a unique opportunity to send eco theory first while doing a waterboom. With double dock and TC you reach 30 vil pop (3 vil shipment) very quickly after you have sent it and it continues to scale from there as garja says. It's actual...

Re: MU of the week: China vs Port on Baja California

As Ports on EP I'd just water semi FF here. Eco theory -> 700w -> 700c. Double dock, 14-16 boats only, market with 400w, HD & steel traps only. Take every vil off wood when you hit age 2 and use the 700w to pump up to 14-16 boats. Should hit age 3 at a very respectable time from what I remember ...

Re: Treasures

Eh I'd reckon 30-40% of games vs captains are effectively over before anyone's even reached colonial.

Re: How do you become OP at AOE3?

Also should be noted that it's very easy to talk about strategy and how to improve in this area as opposed to mechanics. Which is partly why it gets a lot more focus.

A how to improve your mechanics guide could be very useful since a lot of people might not actually know?

Re: How do you become OP at AOE3?

Nah, APM doesn't matter. There are players who got stucked at the captain level with great APM (250+) like Butifle, MiniMart etc, and there are players who went very far in tourney with very low APM (think of Boneng) Mechanics matters the most for improving which is what the topic is about. I shoul...

Re: Is there a conspiracy against me?

When I watch a PR30+ player play vs those I get crushed by, things go exactly according to plan. When I do it the scenario is always different. When I raid my opponent, he react immediately, when Raphael raid the same opponent he usually get 2-3 vills simply because the opponent react slow. When Ra...

Try changing the ingame resolution settings after you launch.
