Re: THE BEST MOUSE

the cheapest mouse on earth is OK if it works normally and if you are not PR 35+ (and even then idk) I mean you just need to right click and to left click what else?? A good mouse is really comfortable and accurate though, even if you aren't super competitive. It's one of the best things I've ever ...

Re: EP 5.1.x Smackdown [2019-01-13]

- wont build limits be a problem potentially? Factories have a build limit of 2 iirc and same with if you ship 2 fort wagons but can only build 1? Factories don't have a build limit, for fort there are different cards - some do increase the build limit, some don't. Sorry to spam with questions but ...

Thank you for that! Love the considerations on how to maximize the winrate.

Re: diarouga vs snowww

Also I absolutely loved how Diarouga approached this. I think its rare for us to see cases where people are stuck with a civ in some match up that is generally bad and have to find ways to make it work or at least to maximize the winrate. Diarouga was forced to play aztec against british, and manage...

@Diarouga can you maybe do your thoughts on this match up like you did last time? I enjoy your insights.

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

Ahah that video is hilarious. But I think the problem there is that most attacks have a projectile instead of doing instant damage. Also SC2 is full of units that don't necessarily counter each other but can beat each other depending on micro (e.g. marines vs banelings). AOE3 mostly employs big dam...

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

Btw, I think deepmind is set to solve sc2 with a real apm limitation. I think this is their concession that they are unable to solve this precise strategic thing yet. I think nobody doubts that deepmind could currently get really good at sc2 if there was no limit on its apm, and even with high apm i...

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

In what sense is huge trial and error not still brute force? If I ask you to solve a puzzle to get some 5 digit code, you can either solve the puzzle or just try all options. I do agree that the AI's trial and error is quite efficient and it actually does some learning, but it's still relative brut...

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

Well Alphazero (and the other thing they made to play lots of other games like 2d atari games etc) learnt by making random moves and then finding patterns from what resulted in victory (or score in 2d games case), so it played a really really large number of games but still an infinitesimal fractio...

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

Come on, it's not like I dont understand this, it is just that you're not up to date to what deep learning is doing. They are even using deep learning machines in medicine to diagnose diseases... The only thing holding back deep learning AIs from stomping human players in RTS games is the crazy amo...

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

I watched the entire deepmind presentation of alphago and that was still a form of brute force. No it does not calculate all possibilities, but it still has an insane amount of information and plays an insane amount of games versus itself. In that sense its still brute force; its basically solving ...

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

AI has the advantage of brute forcing their way through, but humans have an amazing ability to solve strategic concepts in a very small amount of attempts. We have this inate ability to make assumptions and grasp the underlying concepts of a game pretty quickly and use those to create axioms in how ...

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

Implied cynicism aside, I think it'd be pretty cool to be an even more active contributor to strategies and playstyles. Kynesie is another person that comes to mind. This is one of the things that is really special about aoe3. It allows for relative casuals like us to actually discover the game rath...

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

There are also plenty of analogies between aoe3 and many other games though. Ultimately I hope AI never touches aoe3. Aoe3's beauty is in the way strategy works. It's easy enough for us to understand it pretty well, but it's complex enough for people to not solve it completely and it matters enough ...

Trashed is not the right word though. Of course in their first few games, but some sc2 players will probably adapt really quickly.

Re: 2020 Democratic Primary

Probably because we don't elect a president like many other countries. Rather, a coalition of different parties is formed. That means that unlike in america, a fringe party that might only get 2% of votes can actually matter. This makes the system much less all in on the big parties. And given that ...

Re: What is more important: IQ or mechanics?

To add to this a bit, there are a few example of former pro gamers that ended up becoming casters and, after having stopped training rigirously, got to something like high master league in sc2, if not lower. This makes gibson's comparison even worse, because that implies that diarouga/lordraphael fo...
