Everyone's favourite (or not so favourite) ex-sc2 player Lilbow who dabbled a bit into Age of Empires 3 is joining a SC2 team again after being an Overwatch league coach for 4 years!
I guess this will diminish the time he streams aoe3:DE in the future.

Anyone have any good stories about him in his time playing some aoe3? Share them here :hmm:

I slowly threw an advantageous position as brit vs mookie's germany on Legacy and he only made xbow pike. This was when mookie was very new, and he flamed me in all caps calling me shit. It took me a long time to accept that mookie wasn't sirmusket.
stitching with seems tbh

@aaryngend for reference from this thread:

Cometk wrote:maybe the biggest example of crossover success was when Mookie21 / clemamollette aka the Overwatch pro Lilbow broke onto the scene last year and reached brigadier with 2 different accounts in Top 10 Elo

seems he's got some interest in DE too :biggrin:


There's some other discussion there about him if you're so inclined to read further.

He was notorious for making only bow/pike on the EP. That's terrible of course, but he got some nice victories thanks to his good focus fire and cover mode management.

It was very funny to see him spamming musk or bow and winning or at least giving good players some trouble. Making them think, who is this guy with advanced market in his deck haha.
I copied his bo and made some changes on it, with some success, but was always fun.

He won cause if you make shit ton of units, no matter which type, and the opponent doesn't react properly it is then a legit strat. Wasn't really micro that won him games, if anything macro.

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.

Pike/xbow is just a lame rush strategy, mostly useful only for cannon fodder (quite literally) .
