Re: ESOC elo ladder

If India is OP (I believe that's the point) then I'd argue that the EP Elo clearly represents it. Thats part of it, though it would not be the complete case for whether India is too op (even though I think its too good ye). But you missed the other half (idk how). If you are (without taking India i...

Re: ESOC elo ladder

why are there four frenchmen in the top 10? are you sure it's working correctly? The fact that Tit and Kynesie are nr1 and 2 at the moment, clearly shows that the current rating is not representative, galaxy's away from it in fact. Sure they are not bad, but far from top. Here are some calculations...

Re: England toop

Re: England toop

big words for a little one, who's country has one of the biggest football leagues in the world, but barely beat Tunesia 2-1, and lost to Iceland in EC 2016, a country with not even 1% of England's population ;)

But I can understand your cheers of relief for not losing !

Re: ESOC Crypto Corner

Poker isnt gambling, precisely because its about far more than just luck (calculations, bluffing, reading opponents). Gambling is going to a slot machine or playing roulette or so, where skill components are minimal and the luck component is huge. But ok, back to crypto, curious to see if this lates...

Re: ESOC Crypto Corner

Its close to a zero-sum game imo. Sure if you make money someone else loses some. However, a higher trading volume in the end is beneficial for the coin and the additional awareness is also a positive in this phase? I dont see trading as gambling, even though crypto atm is an undeveloped, young and ...

Re: new PR calculating formula

That suggestion comes closer, but is still based on a flawed initial PR calculation and assumes the 50% win/loss. This isnt SC2, the system that matches you here doesnt do as well. And it doesnt work well for higher PRs which are closer to the max, so there would need to be a different multiple from...

@GS I.e. you can tell anything online, without proper proof no one knows if its the truth.

If you are really serious about trying to fix this, then I applaud that attitude and you should consider the following: - Do not one, but multiple speedtests at different days and times to get a better picture of your average connection quality. Also, do not only check with a server closeby, but one...

I appreciate your intention Goodspeed, which has often been my way of going forward, but I think this is a bit over-optimisic considering you are asking someone online, who is in this position based on experiences by other players, to simply state the opposite.

Re: Tit vs Hazza54321

I find it quite dissapointing how bad people are in evaluating game situations (regardless of lagg), such as the canon issue, the "map presence", civ combos, etc. Sure I dont know everything, but i do know a lot if we talk about teamgames. People with far less experience and results to sho...

Re: Tit vs Hazza54321

I see an interesting pattern, from previous tourneys and here again: - On land maps (not just full with food etc, even klondike), which are the biggest part of the game map pool and competitive tournaments as well, other teams win like Ramex/Me did and Hazza/King. - On water maps Tit/Kyn win.

Re: Who should go to the final ?

There is some places where you just can't get a good internet (it's the case at my parent's home). I guess that's the same for them, would you change house just to improve your aoe experience ? .

Re: Who should go to the final ?

1) Yes, which was good that you did (for either team). Idk what you want to say here 2/3) Backherding usually is misplay sure, but when there is a laggspike that causes it, that makes it questionable. Which is why I let this go on and we played, so again, not sure what the point here is. Its about t...

Re: ESOC Crypto Corner

The form of capitalism we see around us now is far from true capitalism. Markets are not free and open at all, just look at advantages of the multinationals in ways of loans, subsidies, favorable regulations, etc. I dont think real capitalism would be bad. I doubt though we ever achieve that. The id...

Re: AI beats top players in Dota 2

they will win in time to micro easily, thats not even up for discussion. And they also will win with more than one character and non-mirror matchups, it just means they need a bit more time to learn it The only question is indeed when you play teamgames, if the AI's can coordinate (how much is the i...
