I decided to make a longer video on my thoughts of dutch balance changes, show a new opening and explain how it works and why its so strong i think as well as discussing/showing build variation and discussing pretty much every Match Up dutch has with respect to latest patch notes. This content is probably aimed at the 1200-1700 ELO range mark however i think the Pro scene can still check the build out and discussions to learn some new strats as dutch.
Dont worry im not trying to break into Youtube, just seemed to be an easier think to do than write a long forum thread as compared to start recording without any sense of a script. I think that some people will find this really enjoyable or find it insightful. Many thanks!
I enjoyed your video, I'm a Treaty player only and I tried your marked approuch on Treaty (nine banks in no time with no vils on wood . It worked very good thanks . Exchange rate went over the 200 but who cares when you got so many banks in a short period of time
The 5 vils extra with the bankcard of Amsterdam and Rotterdam is the long awaited and requested balans for the Dutch in long treaty games. The Dutch eco awalys collapsed for a lot off players (and for a longwhile people did not want to play with a Dutch teammate because of that).
The extra bank introduced on DE did make some changes but was still not good enough, this finally makes it possible to choose some different approaches with the Dutch what makes it more fun. ( before the only choice was eco, eco and eco and a conservative style of fighting).
