Re: Ray tracing in aoe 4?

How can an RTS even really benefit from this? RTS games don't really need to look great, even aoe3 (a 2005 game) still looks pretty okay for today's standards. The demands for graphics just aren't as high. Make a semi decently looking RTS game and it's graphics will be timeless.

Re: Best AOE3 Countries

The Netherlands has some strong players, but never a seasonal tournament finalist (H2O, BS_OP, LordRaphael, Mitoe, Acergame, Samwise, Snowww, Kynesie, Goongoon). We do have over 12% of all posts on the forum, though. ye but thats only cuz u845 has too much spare time. any country wouldve more than ...

Re: The French Hussar

Imo aoe doesnt have enough of that. Most units stay viable throughout the game. There should be more exclusively early/late game units. Right now the only real late game (not mid) units are artillery and a few special units. aoe3's unit design is somewhat bland. Instead of a complicated unit system...

Re: German age3 mercenaries cost more than 1kc

9 black riders would cost 2430 coin if trained from a saloon, but this way you get them all at once and don't deplete your mines. Seems like a great deal to me. It is basically a 1430 coin shipment that gives you a saloon wagon, enables black riders to be trained (9 times before the saloon self-des...

Re: ESOC elo ladder

If you look at Elo in chess, top players switch position after a tourney by playing against each other. It's simply the norm. Which could be problematic for a game as volatile as aoe3. Play bad for a few games or get a few bad maps/match ups and you'll drop down the rankings rapidly. If one chess p...

Re: ESOC elo ladder

The average or the initial rating doesn't matter. Having a starting ELO of 1600 or of 0 doesn't make any difference. What matters is that pr takes into account the homecity level, the amount of games, the civs played, and probably some other bs (like you get your pr back faster when you've been ina...

Re: ESOC elo ladder

Yea pr is good and if you don't take into account decayed accounts and low hc smurfs it's really just as accurate as elo. I guess elo is nice cause it splits between 1v1 and team though. If you don't take into account that stuff then it's just another elo rating chart simply with a different scale....

Re: Would you like a winter or spring tournament?

I still really hope there will be a few invitationals rather than a big tournament. Also I've been wondering, wouldn't it be more fun for the more low level players to just host their own tournament with friends anyways. And then just stream the games yourself. I'd be much more interested in that my...

Re: ESOC elo ladder

One problem is that since the average new player on ep is between major and capitain, it is the same winning vs a major and winning vs a ms that has never played on ep (which is probably why eaglemut was preseeded master tourney for instance). It means that you can get a colonel elo since bashing m...

Re: ESOC elo ladder

Because the playerbase was seemingly slightly larger and thus the top end had higher ranks. This has dropped since the cheaters I feel like, so right now the highest ranked elo players are just the inactive players because actively playing will cause your rank to drop.

Re: ESOC elo ladder

An ELO ladder gets better when 1) there is more interaction between the different layers of the community. Pr20's need to indirectly be donating their points to the pr40's for the ranking to become accurate. When the interaction between those two layers is only done by a handful of people that play ...

Re: US States that voted for Trump face factory closures due to Trump's trade war

what this means, is that China will be focusing on other trading partners, like Africa, Russia,Eu, etc. But the real change is that they are focusing on their own consumers, to have more buying power, and that is good for the Chinese poor ppl. And bad for USA who have surged on cheep Chinese goods....

I was trying to be nazi sometimes as a mod, but it turned out the line was pretty blurred and being strict would have required banning a lot of people because there wasn't really any authority it's far from ideal, but it's really tough to execute the ideal state with limited human resources, as you...
