Re: Behavioral Economics and AoE3

In aoe3 I honestly avoid playing people that are much better than me. But that's exactly what prevents people from improving. I'd say that overall I don't really care about losing (or not at all), I care about people knowing I lost. Why would you want to improve? In aoe3, I dont. Improving means it...

Re: Behavioral Economics and AoE3

Though isnt one of the big problems of competitive gaming this exact problem? Its one of the reasond why I like playing vs ai. I was even thinking, with the rise of very good AI, it would be possible to create a ladder where all human players have a >50% winrate. The other solution is to throw a bun...

Re: Behavioral Economics and AoE3

Or I guess why do people enjoy gambling? It's objectively a negative sims game but not necessarily. There's the psychological thrill you could "get lucky" so people like the experience even expecting to walk out with less. So is AoE3 betting too? Theres a general thrill of playing aoe3. I...

So then why does esoc try to actively cater to everyone, instead of just targetting a group?

Re: Official 2018 FIFA World Cup Thread

I think the rules need a revamp actually. Teams and players are too professional and have found many 'bug abuses' that are really OP. Suggestions to change it: 1) True playing time. Delaying is way too effective, even extra time fails to account for it. Play 30 minutes twice, with the clock only ru...

Re: How long does it take to regain skills?

It depends. I 'regain' skill more quickly if I have been playing other games that involve a mouse, as my mouse accuracy won't be rusty then. It also depends on what level you're talking about. For me, the mechanical level of skill is pretty mediocre so it only takes a handful of games to feel okay. ...

Im a bit weary to accept aoe3's what if conclusion. Its a great game but ultimately has extreme flaws that'd have posed serious problems even if the game was well supported. First we need to note that aoe3 didnt do too well even when it still received support. But secondly, I feel like aoe3's gamep...

Re: An AoE3 wiki?

I actually use the wiki sometimes too check unit stats. An ESOC wiki would be something that fits for the biggest (only) community site, but it depends on how much effort it is (and how much you'd enjoy making it) to determine if its worth it. Realistically, a starting point would be to copy paste m...

Re: The ear has a new phone

Oneplus 5 came out like 1 year ago, of course the battery is still fine. But i think you are right, the less you recharge your phone the longer its battery life will be. Ultimately though is simply depends on how much you use your phone. Yeah, my phone is only a year old. But I feel like most more ...

Re: Who is Dutch? About nationality and heritage

What it boils down to is very simple. If you are a citizen of France, you are French. If you are a citizen of the Netherlands, you are Dutch. We aren't talking ethnically, but nationality. You can be black and be French. You can be white and be French. There have been black families who have been l...

Re: The ear has a new phone

The problem with phones nowadays is the battery. After 3-4 years that you have one phone the battery is not even gonna last you half a day, so you'll have to change your phone, regardless of its snappy/sluggish performance (you could also change the battery but that is kinda expensive). Then you wi...

Re: What's aoe2 like?

AOE3 was also not up to people expectations but it's not true it was a flop from the start. And I also think it peaked with TAD but I may be wrong on that. Of course SC2 is more popular than AOE3, but so is compared to AOE2. And I think Warcraft was too back then. It's just that blizzard games are ...

Re: What's aoe2 like?

AOE3 survived till there were ES support and sponsors fueling tourneys. SC2 is not growing. It's fading since WOL but can't go past the bottom line because it has SC and Blizzard brand backing it up. Also of course it's not a terrble title at all, but still a flop compared to people expectations. A...

Re: What's aoe2 like?

The reason why aoe2 is alive has not much to do with the actual gameplay What? Why would that make sense? It came earlier and was more popular. That's completely due the period when the game came out. Then nostaglia, sponsors, I guess voobly, etc. The gameplay probably helps with the lag problem. B...

Re: Did you like Empires Apart

I didn't play it, but based on what I've read and am reading here it tried to be a modern incarnation of aoe2, except that it failed to be actually modern. If you really like aoe2, I think you'd be interested in playing a modern incarnation of the game where the hotkeys and controls have been smooth...
