But Kynesie had already qualified, he earned his spot. He just lost it because he participated in this scheme.

I'm just saying that if either of them want to improve their sitution, that requires an action on their part.

Re: Integrity and Fair Play

Very good reaction by the tournament staff, what a shitty move by Tit and Kynesie. Tit had to be disqualified as he wasn't playing himself which is cheating and Kynesie because a) he was helping to cheat and b) potentially getting the weaker player to the LAN which is kind of a cheat in itself. They .....

Re: NEW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP - Sign Ups Now OPEN!

Correct me if I'm wrong: right now there are only 75 sign-ups. So chances are pretty good you will make it into the round of 64 :P I mean it is a bit sad that this only attracts 75 players, but hey... better than nothing :)

Re: Indians: Port Consulate FI

I meant an Indian "standard" FI, where you go small wood trickle; big wood trickle / 600w / 300ex; 600coin; 1000 coin

That azzy probably has a better FI is not in doubt ^^

Re: Indians: Consulate Start with Portuguese?

Thanks for all the responses; it seems quite clear that a consulate start is not a good thing for India. A 200w investment for saving 120f is just not worth it.

When it comes to later ages: Might it be interesting to use the Port Consulate to age to Fortress or Industrial? Usually you have the consu .....

So Japan does it more or less anyway for the shrines and the reduction for the wonder is more of a side effect?

Indians: Port Consulate FI

Has anyone ever tried a consulate start as India (+ Portuguese Cons + cheaper age up?) While it is standard for Japan, I have never used or seen anyone using it for India. I think I have only seen @Aizamk using it for an FI with India...

In theory the faster age up could be quite useful as India like .....

2v2 India and Japan

Does anyone have insights on how these two civs can work in a 2v2 game as a team? Should India Agra in the middle and try to fend off the opponents to let Japan boom or should both boom?

In some test games the combination of Sepoy / Yumi turned out to be a bit slow and vulnerable to Euro FFs (especia .....

@lejend we do not agree at all. You say there is no straight and gay, only right and wrong sexual acts.

I say there is more than just gay and straight, but a lot of variations in between. And I really don't know what science you are talking about. The only hard evidence there is, points to sexual ori .....
