If you are so annoyed with seeing these ads I would recommend installing an AdBlocker rather than starting a useless poll.

Re: Update 13088

I would like to point out that you can still turn your units into gates with this patch. I shall eagerly await Garja to update the Spain FI with a gate variant.

Instead of cash prizes for tourneys maybe ESOC should be giving out elephant tote bags.

Re: DE list of issues

Does anyone else still have issues with minimap layering? For me at least it still seems impossible to see enemy units in your base from the minimap. I do use friend/foe colors so maybe that's related?

Re: European politics

@Mr_Bramboy thoughts/opinions on the recent Dutch cabinet resignations in regards with the welfare scandal? Any potential implications for the Verkiezingen van de Tweede Kamer der Staten-Generaal 2021? Is Mark Rutte as scandal proof as Donald Trump???

Re: Lilbow returns to SC2 and joins Archangel Gaming

In this thread pike/xbow is too weak, but in the Garja Spain FI thread pike/xbow is too strong? ESOC's balance discussions never fail to amuse me.

Re: Dutch Strategies, Build Orders, Replays, Notes and Matchups by DutchDude117 (aka "The Exiled Prince"))

@dutchdude117 maybe I'm reading this wrong but are you advocating for a TP every game? That's really only needed if you're up against super aggressive civs like Russia and need to get CM in transition. Usually it's best to save the wood crate for getting a bank in transition to 2nd.

I like the work you're doing here, but I'm not sure this formatting is the best. Giving each MU it's own post seems a bit clunky? Using spoilers would probably be a bit easier to read, example: viewtopic.php?t=17946

Re: Remove a civ

I think a civ should just randomly be removed for no reason and with no explanation. This would fall in-line with the current philosophy that the devs are using to patch and update the game. Then when they release a hotfix for the issue, it will remove 3 more civs while adding another civ no one ask...

Re: Maphack and OOS still work on DE...

TIL cyber security is analogous to proxy stable. I think this is actually a great analogy. You can try to build walls on every side, but if you give the attacker enough time they will siege them down. And if you have a small hole somewhere because you messed up your pillarless walls it's all for no...

I would like to point out that OOS was never patched in DE. Anyone that knew how to do it in RE can use the same trick in DE, and this is already pretty well known. Also, I've talked with some people who've claimed they've gotten around DE's checksum. For anyone that doesn't know, a checksum is tool...
