I did not compare, but the attention this tournament got compared to Redbull was not comparable either :D But with that many people streaming POV and casting it, I happy that it had 12k viewers today :)
True, I forgot that for KoTD2 because its just such a bad system. KoTD2 is a bad example then. But here in KotD there was also two games where we saw Byz :D
My point should be clear still, Byz are def used in tournaments and even rarely on non-water, non-arena maps.
Lithuanians as a civ that actually could make good use of Handcannons due to their mediocre archery and siege wont use them just because Leitis with two relics can deal 24 certain damage to Champs while HC only 27 in 65% of time. They get basically +10 in bonuses against most units.
Why compare Lithuanians to other paladin civs with non-cav UUs, if they themselves are none of those. You gotta compare Lithuanians to Magyar, Huns, Persians and where do Magyar Huszar or Tarkans counter Halbs or Camels ? In fact, Leitis should not lose this anti-cav cav feature, but they should...
@TriRem What are you ideas on stats ?
Like I could imagine something like Magyar Huszars as starting point, but changed accordingly:
Cost: 60f 30g
Train time: 20, 16 (Elite)
Attack: 9, 11 (Elite)
Hit Points: 60, 80 (Elite)
Attack time: 1.8
Melee Armour: 0
Pierce Armour: 2
I also still experience those. I suppose the hotfix is heavily hardware dependent, just fixed so that at least pros stop playing starcraft out of spite and its not that apparent anymore, the freezes still exist. For a broader fix on more different hardware they honestly need just more time. You...
As with much of DE some civ designs were just not worked properly out. It feels like they just looked for any feature that is so unique and overpowered that people are actually interested in the new civs and hence in DE. Every new civ breaks the game somewhere, just to be strong but also unique...
Spoilers incoming for several Tournaments namely, CC3, RBW, HC3, NAC3 and KOTD2
KOTD2: (dont be confused by dates a liquipedia error)
We see Byz across all tournaments, on all gamemodes on all maps. Even on Arabia they are played by Pros. And...
I rather see a buff for infantry than a general nerf of walls. Give infantry mid-game the role they need to play: Raze down walls, which they should be able to do to balance their lack of range and speed. They should not run into walls that badly as scouts do, but be able to make their way...
It is considered to be the last tile of the puzzle to perfection by some people. It was intended for them to have it from the beginning, but they didnt get it in the final game, because it cost 300/200 gold back at aok. In FE, town patrol's cost was decreased to only 100 gold, which would be...
Byzantines are soo good and if you see what they have, they are scary af, they dont kill you fast but slow and painful, if you underestimate them too much. Cataphract changes wont matter that much, but the techs are not that horendous anymore on paper and allow situational use a bit more...
