With all the showmatches announced recently what are some unique matchups you would like to see? Here's my list:
Jordan vs Lierey
Viper vs Jordan
Riut vs Capoch
classicpro vs F1Re
Bling vs Miguel
Can't really explain why the latter 3 came to mind, was just scanning the player list and thought...
First off I just wanna say I love the parity we have at the top right now. It's thrilling to watch these big events and not know beforehand who's going to win. Or even that 1 or 2 people have a chance. We're at a point where 5-6 (arguably even more) players have a legitimate shot in any given...
Brackets were just released.
-Tough break for Lierey and Hera who both get the hardest path by far. Personally I don't think you can have a Vinchester-ACCM quarterfinal and keep the brackets anywhere close to balanced so that...
Thats a massive number and a few years ago would’ve been unfathomable. The implications for the game and competitive scene are massive... not to mention all the potential new players.
Bold prediction but it won’t be long before we start seeing tournaments with 6 figure prizes
I asked this a few years ago on AocZone and got some good responses that turned me onto some up and coming players/streamers so figured I'd ask again and maybe highlight some people who are putting a lot of good work/effort into their stream in the process.
It's been an incredible run for Villese but I think it ends here. MBL is just too versatile and strong on Arabia for me to pick an upset here. I expect Villese to make him work hard for it, though
No disrespect meant to Yo, I think he's absolutely a top-4...
Tomorrow almost feels like Super Bowl Sunday for me... some amazing matchups, can't believe it's only the quarterfinals. Honestly I wish it was BO7 just so we could get more games but BO5 will add even more intensity to each game. Here's my guesses:
Now that R1 is over I figured I would post my impressions of the matches so far, would love to hear other people‘s opinions as well. I’ll probably follow up with a more detailed post later.
-I feel for some of the players who lost in 50-50 type matchups (Capoch, Jordan, Lan, saymyname etc). BO3...
I've brought this up a couple of times over the years, but is there any good reason the palisade wall bug can't be fixed? I remember scripter64 made a post a few years back basically stating that the game developers didn't intend it (as opposed to the tower bug which actually was intended, just...
And how confident are you in your prediction?
Feel free to offer any other analysis, insight, opinions regarding the matchup as well.
Personally, I'm rooting for Lierey just because it's been so long since we've seen Viper lose a major tournament, but I have a feeling Viper pulls it out 5-3...
Hey guys sorry if this has already been covered but can anyone tell me where/when the KoTD records will be posted? Been in the hospital all week with a serious family emergency so I'm kinda out of the loop. Would appreciate any info
Merry Christmas, guys. Hope everyone enjoys the holiday with family and friends. Crazy to think this community is still going strong after all these years. I remember when I came back to AoE in 2010 I was surprised even then that there was still an active community... so it's pretty crazy to me...
Post your list and feel free to add any commentary about your show(s). Here's my top-5:
1. The Sopranos- pretty much changed television forever. The depth and dimension of the characters far surpassed anything that came before it (or after). The storytelling, cinematography, soundtrack and...
Recently I've noticed the formats in a couple of competitive formats (ECL, LOTH) have included later stage rounds with a BO3 setting. In the past, such a short series was almost always reserved for qualifying rounds in which the gap in skill between the two players and/or teams was so huge that...
