a sad day for some it was, _DauT_ returns to aoe3 with vengeance, and of course the war wagons.

after about 20 games for the last 3 days, he is now 2nd on cuetech. iamgrunt has since lost about 100 points on cuetech, now ranks 4th with 2430. GG is now 8th. Starsky however claimed up the top of the throne.

whats interesting about these games is that 95% of them, whoever made the most warwagons won the game.

oh and they all played the same BO too, send 3 SW in colonial then fortress around 8:15, then 3 WW-> 9uhlans->8skirm->7 skirm, keep making WW in the process.

isn't this game great or what?

In the future, I will remember this and laugh my ass off, because I will be reading a "He who makes more Banks, Wins!"

Sometimes I feel like German laming... but then I remember that I have to lvl a HC, so I just keep losing to War Wagons

I'm ^*&%$# pissed off at ESO. How long do you think it is going to take ESO to figurue out that Germans are OP? Every single pro on ESO known's that they're OP. It took them 7 months to fix the friends list. ESO hurry up and nerf these Germans for godness sake. I'm loosing my cool with ESO.

ESO= Ensemble Studios Online. ES= Ensemble Studios

The KNOW Germany is OP, Sandy stated it in AskSandy.

They will nerf them when 1.08 is released. However, since the HeavenGames tournament is sponsored by them, they most likely will not release it until after it is over.

When does the Heavengames staff expect the tournament to end?

August 5.

Could be earlier however.

And what I said about them not releasing until it ends was just speculation, I honestly have no idea.

    It would be really funny to see half players changing from Germany to Dutch in the middle of it

    Oh, btw, yeah... WWs are OP

    Hahahahaha I was looking at the same thing just yesterday. I was looking at the cuetech ladder and noticed that _DauT_ was in 2nd and had the Dutch flag next to his name!? Intrigued into how a dutch player could be so high on cuetech I decided to check out his agecommunity stats. What I saw saddened me... I look through his games, 1st game: German vs German, 2nd game: German vs German, 3rd game: German vs German... Wow, another player laming it up with German. I completely lost any admiration I might of had for the guy.

    I don't think this says too much about WW though. Generally whoever wins the game makes the most units too so I think it has little to do with their OPness.

    (WW are OP though, along with German in general)

    Yup, they must all use it, because that's what GG uses against me, except he typically throws in that fortress skirm shipment after 3 WW, builds a stable, builds three houses, throws in adamantine housing (or something like that?) which gives about max pop, and then concentrates all SW and villies on food and gold.

    It's kinda pathetic that in order to be an "expert" player, or at the top of the world, you have to lame to remain competitive, it's not really any fun by that point I'd imagine.

    At the top levels, players work to win by all legal means necessary (nothing wrong with that, of course.) It's what makes them experts -- they play as hard as they possibly can using the strongest possible strategies, executing these strats as perfectly as possible. This makes the experts a great resource for balance tweaking. What are the experts doing to one another? How often is it done and how well can it be countered by other great players?

    It would certainly appear that the game has settled into a bit of a pattern at the top. The thing that threw Germans a bit out-of-whack this time was the WW boost against artillery (to an already too-strong unit) and the unintentional merc boost that now gives you 13 jaegers for 1000 gold. I think that one or two good tweaks would set things right without too much difficulty. In spite of the German problem, things are getting close.


    Strategies:
    - BWKiC - A British Fast Fortress strategy
    - The Aztec Scout Slam- An Envoy Rush, Native-Style

    Starsky doesnt lame, he's been port for awhile. Unless thats considered laming, but if it is, then why wasnt playing germany 'laming' in 1.05?

    Yeah, spamming a single unit isn't much fun for them either I imagine.

    It certainly does seem to be a problem for now.
