Re: New World Championship 2019 betting discussion

If you make it too low, after a certain amount of matches the people on the bottom of the standings don't stand a chance anymore and the people on top just keep betting the max on every match. You even see this in the current events in the later stages. Imo it should be possible (technically possibl .....

Attention betters who were out of points: The betting Gods were getting jealous of @Cometk, who is becoming known as the biggest donator in betting history, and decided, in their infinite wisdom and benevolence, to award all betters with another 5000 points to use for the LAN event in July. A total .....

Re: NWC Tournament Disqualifications - Tit and kynesie

This is just how elim brackets work. Sometimes you get lucky and get an easy bracket, whether that's due to bad players or DQs isn't relevant. If you want it to be perfectly fair then why aren't you complaining about the format (elim style) itself?

You guys are all just biased towards having more co .....

Losing 3-4 is pretty damn good considering Tabben's lack of experience (I'm not trying to be insulting here, Tabben just doesn't have as much tourney experience, specifically versus playstyles like Kynesie's).

Tabben Kynesie was 4-3. I think he deserves it.

Re: Integrity and Fair Play

Well would there be enough suspicion to pause the game for an IP check without that civ reset? People may have remarked that it looked like a Kynesie build but that would be explained by them practicing together.

Re: Integrity and Fair Play

It seems really bizarre for kynesie to give up a free vacation and a chance to win
The staff finding out about it obviously wasn't part of the plan. It seems like it was an impulsive decision, but very likely neither of them thought there was any way anyone would find out. The civ reset was a nice ca .....

Re: Microsoft is putting an Age of Empires survey, make your voice heard!

I really didn't mean to make this thread AoE2 vs AoE3, maybe we should move the discussion elsewhere... It's just a shame when people claim AoE2 is only popular because of nostalgia and timing, because that kind of attitude prevents us from learning from it. It did so many things right, and there is .....

Re: Microsoft is putting an Age of Empires survey, make your voice heard!

10? Yeah recently it has been better I guess. Games go late much more often now. In AoE2 siege weapons are an integral part of the game though and I'm kinda missing that in AoE3.

AOE3 is a step-up over AOE2 in almost every category. However you want to define it. Even if you judge things only technically, not just based on personal preference:
