Re: EP9: Church XP Trickle

Honestly it's just a regular deck with the exception that you have Goraksha in age 1 and send it first.

Don't get your hopes up though, the chances of getting Araucania, and then getting the correct variant (out of 3) are very slim. I have not seen the numbers but I'm convinced the weighting on the l .....

The point at which the field generates more XP is between 7-8 cows/yaks. As it costs 25% more you need 9-10 cows relative to a 200w TP, though you could argue i .....

Re: Best AoE3 Features!

I like the shipment mechanic (make sure no aoe2 players reading this.)

Also the pacing is just perfect - in terms of u got a little warmp up to get going (age 1) but games can still end super early in age 2 or can play out quite long for 1 hour.

APM's required also hits the right spot so you don't ha .....

Re: EP9: INDIA

Wahey India thread :P

First question - what's the plan for future tournament map pools? If there are maps like Alaska and Gran Chaco rotating back in then these changes need to be looked at very differently.

I agree slow sepoy rush (and follow up age 2 play) would be good to bring back. I guess 6 sepoy .....

Re: The underrated case for forts

I'd reiterate what some players have said that the build time is the biggest factor as to why it's not used more. I used it twice in EPL1 and both times it was hit within about 15-25 seconds of being placed because unsurpisngly top players are able to find and identify that kind of play and then to .....

It was to predict the drafted players values in order to use for the auction, in other words doesn't count Kaiser & Mitoe.

As Jerom says if I didn't manually knock ~1K off Perez they have a very comparable score to NWC at the top which mirrors the results of drafted players. CMC without Kaiser a .....
