Funny cuz the program tells me the same lol. and when i use garja's software i've got 230 average.

I still think xakops tool isn't accurate. Let's say i want to complete a crucial batch of cav, i'm gonna hotkey the stable and spam my "make huss hotkey" 4 times to finish the batch.
So that's like 5 effective actions under a second. Not even talking about micro phases where you reach more than that.

Yeah that's one effective action and 4 irrelevant actions that you just wasted APM on @Lecastete :hmm:
You get 230 APM from an external counter because it counts "actions" that literally don't mean anything and don't actually cause anything to happen in the game. If you just faceroll on the keyboard throughout the whole match you could get even double that APM, probably.

That said, the parser likely does miss some actual actions, so it may be a bit lower than real effective APM. Still, I believe it's as accurate as we can get right now.

I don’t think you understand what an effective action is. Queuing 1 Huss is 1 effective action no matter if you click once to sue it for 100 times to que it.......

Castete never speaks about queing 1 huss, but hotkey stable + queuing 4huss, so its 5 effective actions.

Well you can just shift click and it's 2 actions

I think that compared to most other players I do less actions with mouse but more with keyboard so maybe it's somehow not counted the same here

I've downloaded it and it's a very nice tool, but I'm also a bit surprised cause my EPM is always around 80-90, which sounds kinda low. Does this count properly the actions done when microing for example? Like when kiting, there's lots of clicks to control the way the group of units walks, dragboxes to split fire etc?

And then I open a recorded blitz treaty game and I have 110 EPM and my opponent (sabusa) 160 EPM??
So I guess stuff like queuing units always counts as actions but controlling your units seems to be underestimated

Yeah seems like it counts everything you queue even if it's spam. So in fact it's not really EPM right?

That is EPM. Trying to train a unit if you don't have space is still an effective action.

Thanks finally someone with a brain.

btw the program can't distinguish what's an effective action compare to what isn't.
If i use "find hero hotkey" 3 times in 5 sec for a treasure contention then i do a lot of effective apm in theory but it won't count that.

That's not EPM. That's no different that clicking between control groups, you aren't doing anything.

Selecting an unit via a control group isn't but moving an unit is.

How? Spamming the hussar hotkey 20 times in a row does absolutely nothing but counts as 20 actions? This doesn't make any sense.

Need @XaKOps to confirm. Maybe I'm just wrong and the EPM counter doesn't use the actions listed in that "game actions" tab.

Fuck I accidentally edited lecastete post instead of quoting it.

@Kaiserklein im talking about from the SC2 perspective of how they measure EPM vs APM. EPM is basically an action that is trying to accomplish something. Making a unit, building, moving or attacking. That doesn’t include selection which is including in APM. So spamming not being counted is only spamming of selection.

I get your point, I just think EPM doesn't make much sense then. APM might even be more accurate at this point, idk

Agreed. I think in sc2 it’s a lot more relevant as a measurement because you are constantly just doing actions to keep your pace high. Aoe3 doesn’t really demand that so people don’t do it the same way.
