Re: [Unofficial] [Civ rules] Poll about Autumn 2018

If you had an option RE..I would vote for it. I will take the bait. Why? My main argument for that would be that most ppl play RE. Even though I really like the patch in general, it has become a kind of "elitist" patch. From a spectator point of view, it could be nice to have a tournament...

Re: Dear white people

What stereotype are you talking about? That they're religious? You dont know what a 'kutmarokkaan' is? This kind of ignorant stuff is whats feeding racism and racist political parties. There are dumb people walking the streets of their poor neighboorhood, seeing the stereotype get confirmed over an...

Re: Dear white people

@Goodspeed the Dutch moroccan stereotype is reasonably accurate for the moroccans in Utrecht. 95% seems like a fair estimate in my opinion.

Re: Dear white people

Its incredibly naive to think human nature can be changed at a large scale. You can tell someone that it is nit correct and wrobg as much as you like, but that isnt goibg to outweigh the fact that basically every member of a specific ethnic group that person met confirmed the stereotype. At that poi...

Re: Dear white people

Racism doesnt necessarily come out of nowhere. In many countries a prejudice towards some ethnic group is actually a sensible prejudice. When one sees Romas walk around, its not unwise to pay extra attention to your belongings. This is a sensible thing to think or feeling to experience. I dont think...

Re: [Unofficial] [Civ rules] Poll about Autumn 2018

If we go purely by skill rules, there should be free picking and no civ limitations at all. No limitations at all. Otherwise you're just considering skill within the limitations you imposed. I always thought the rules were primarily for civ/mu variety. Which is why a shake up in the format might be ...

Re: [Unofficial] [Civ rules] Poll about Autumn 2018

I think conquest mode (a common hearthstone format) could actually work really well. But the current system is fine too. Could you give a quick rundown of how that would work? Iirc you sign up with for example 5 civs and then you have to win a game with each to win a bo9. Once youve won with that c...

I aint gonna respond to your wall of text, but respond to the thread title. Yes, I was at the homestory cup last year. It's pretty much a starcraft2 lan party between pros, but viewers can chill at the same area and talk to pros. Zest is best! Did you have a friend that came with you? Or did you go...

Re: What would AOE3 look like if it had a serious pro scene?

Maybe the discussion should be more about how different AoE3 would look at the highest level if it was large enough to have a competitive scene; as whether or not AoE3 could even be an esport is too controversial. Although I find it funny that the people who say there's no chance AoE3 could ever be...

Re: What would AOE3 look like if it had a serious pro scene?

If you manage to grasp how good real esport players are, I think you inevitably conclude aoe3 has little potential as a real esport. Just imagine yourself but with 100 times the skill, and then wonder if the game isnt fully explored yet.

Re: What would AOE3 look like if it had a serious pro scene?

I feel like a lot of the people here are underestimating how much more there is to the game that's unexplored or ignored. I think only a few of the current top players would even be able to compete if the game had an actual pro scene. I feel like things like water and healers (maybe not trained, bu...

Re: What would AOE3 look like if it had a serious pro scene?

I just think that the aoe3 level is extremely low compared to the level of pros. Im an untalented gamer, and in my 'prime' I played maybe one hour per day on average if even that. I managed to take two games of a RO8 player and got to ro32 myself. Thats just an indication of how low the level is. Th...

Re: What would AOE3 look like if it had a serious pro scene?

If you see the level of sc2 pros and the degree of perfection you will severely doubt if aoe3 would be any fun anymore at that sort of level. Those players are beyond insane, they're like h2o in top form x100 on both a strategic and mechanical level. I dont think aoe3 would be very fun then. The ga...

Re: What would AOE3 look like if it had a serious pro scene?

Idk, I feel like at some point the game is so figured out that you could make some detailed write up that explains perfect play, which everyone will follow. And then it becomes only execution. Aoe3 probably doesnt have enough depth for it to be a huge esport.

Re: This Year's Autumn Tournament Will Use EP ELO

Yes activity and community size matter a lot. I don’t see why you need more than thirty games to prove you are better than 1000-2000 people. But that isnt the point is it? The point is that an ELO system were all users have very few games is inaccurate. Especially if the player amount is small. For...

Yea, improving in RTS games means you get a better knowledge, which is rewarding. 1. Not to everyone 2. Not necessarily rewarding enough compared to simply winning 3. Not necessarily more rewarding than watching a movie 4. In aoe3 not even desirable, because the better you get the more uncreative t...
