Yes, go ahead and tell Viper how he misplayed in each of them 11Have you seen the games? Viper misplayed in each of them.
Oh and tell Yo he's wrong too, that Viper actually misplayed in each of them. He probably hasn't seen the games 11also Yo in his stream said Viper actually didn't make big mistakes, and said he played pretty well, it just happened that he could correctly forecast viper civ pick and play the right way by the civ advantage
Shortly :Yes, go ahead and tell Viper how he misplayed in each of them 11
Both G1 and G2 are civ wins based on what you describe. G1 sounds like it was decided in Dark Age and G2 before the players even loaded in. If two players are so even at such a high skill level it is unavoidable that things like these are what decide the matches between them.Yo did analyze each game and here's what I remember:
G1, Viper lame failed, Yo push the scout to control the deer, if the Mongols player get almost no eco-bonus in Dark Age, Slavs farm bonus is just too much an advantage.
G2, Viper ahead in the beginning and superior in most fights, but Celts simply outclass Malians, Camels and skirms choice cannot deal with siege+pikes, Gbetos also terrible option against scorpions and walled opponent.
G3, Viper is ahead at the beginning, but make too many TCs, has not enough units to counter Eagles+pikes, knights+few emergency skirms lost one major fight and it's all over.
textbook series for decision making, map awareness and unit choice, both played very well and certain civ bonus just decided the game (please do not say it's civ win).
