Welcome to RTS, missclicks will cost games.
I think having the opponent pick a civ for the rule-breaking team is justified, and in case of a 4v4, a bad civ for one player is never game deciding.
Saying having Bohemians = free win is 100% a fallacy, im sure there are a lot of counter examples.
Would add great flavour to the tournament if we allow players team up according to
1. Current nationality
2. Geological location based on AOE civs
Playing under the Ican Empire name?
Sounds ultra cool to me
I'd say it's the best, I watched every single match, which is never the case for other tournaments, especially single map tournaments can be super mundane.
The production is perfect, no stoppages between games, the GSL group stage is easy to understand.
But the most important are players...
If repeated matches are such an issue, the next tournament ought to be "Hungry King: GG NO RE I GO EAT edition", B01, single elimination. So you wont hv to suffer potentially 5 more repeated matches of Daut vs Nicov.
And if earlier wins should matter more than later wins, GG Nicov, you...
Simple: no re in current game if the player hits any boar with scout.
The players are our biggest asset in this game, treat them nicer :)
And i also agree there needs to be a quantitative standard to define bugged woodline, we hv clear definitions for bugged gold, stone, berries, why...
This phrase annoys me a lot, but i think ZeroEmpires used this phrase way back, and he, is undisputable native speaker.
In all honesty, if a player uses a market extensively, said player is ABUSED BY THE MARKET, instead if him abusing the mkt, coz prices go worse and worse.
Memb, you love super aggressive games, this is your time!
2v2 GOTHS WAR on tiny map.
Action from dark age guaranteed, and also has a lot of potential to attract non-AOE players to watch, coz the games would be super intense.
Watched all games in NAC3.
I must give a special mention to The_YO, or i should call him YOLO, 3 of his games are grand masterpizzas.
Islands vs Hera, life on a thread castle drop on Hera's island.
Arabia vs Viper, down 60 pop and literally coming back from hell.
Serengeti vs Viper, nuff...
GOOD JOB disrespecting 3 players in one post.
You are implying that Viper is rigging the competition (Viper always always put in best effort in tourneys)
Daut didn't win becoz he played good, just because Viper "let" him win
Yo won Lord Daut convincingly yet he isn't that strong anyways.
Why would it affect current viewers?! I mean, you just gotta open a new tab and type in a url in your browser.
No, even simplier, just click on a link.
Its not like TheViper suddenly streams in Chinese in Mixer, i see absolutely zero obstacles for viewers to watch Mixer.
This is what I liked in this event:
Non-standard maps, would even want to see MegaRandom thrown in to enhance the fun factor
A good league structure, giving players at least a few games, and each series wasn't unnecessarily long
This is what made me tune in:
I would suggest to save up the money to buy BacT's air tix, and garuntee him a spot in NAC3. I think its a huge thing for BacT to travel to EU, and the experience cant be compensated.
The 8th player just invite someone in EU, which would cost much less money. Or even Nili you be it 11...
