That doesn't mean what you think it means.

That prevents anyone from joining unless they are in your voobly team/clan.


Missed that. Edited, thanks.

No slinging restrictions? Or am I missing something?


No restrictions because of the use of the GotA mod. (nerfing sling)

  • What streaming policy are you guys going to follow regarding streamers?


A majority of the sponsors have requested open-streaming so we will be going with that.

You can sling as much as u want :D but better mute the recipient before, 75% tax might have a good effect


Just to understand it clearly, with 75% tax if you send 100 stone then only 25 will reach to the ally? That almost makes it unusable, I personally liked the SY mod when it was 50%.


The formula is not what most people think, and robo is correct, essentially 30% base tax is not 30%, it's 23%. (100w/130 = 77w received. Meaning 23w went to the taxman :evil: )

Base tax vs effective tax (real/ingame):

10% = 9%
20% = 17%
30% = 23%
40% = 29%
50% = 33%
60% = 38%
70% = 41%
80% = 44%
90% = 47%
100% = 50%

This is why the SY and WiC mods were ineffective previously and a specific mod for arena(stone walled) was created for this tournament.

We are still debating the final decision on what the base-tax will be, but that should be finalized by this weekend. 75% was put temporarily just so the announcement wouldn't be delayed.

i think there are some unfair teams like 2.3k+2.2k.if i were ruler, i wouldn't let 2.3k players team with them.i would make some groups like in European champions league and make them team with by drawing of lots :D we turk players already did it when we were npl while making a tournament and it was so cool.https://yadi.sk/i/sx3nsZaHr8cmt

Are Macros going to be allowed in this tournament? Whichever way admins decide, keep in mind loiveyoaeu is not the only one who has been using them.

admins decides it.i already talked with some moderators if my macro is allowed and i sent them my macro.my macro doesnt do 2 job in 1 time.it just make 1 job quicker.i read many topics about it.it says if ur macro makes A+B=C its not allowed.if it makes something quicker, its allowed.some hater players like jibblets couldnt accept it coz they lose against me without macro.i am not hiding anything.coz so much player uses macro including 2k players.if they tell me its not allowed, i just don't use.u can clearly see it in recs.

I think this might be a good idea for other tournaments but with a tournament like this, in my opinion the goal is to see the best teams possible :lol: There are indeed some extremely strong teams, but I already see like 6-8 teams in signups with at least some chance to win it, and presumably there are even a few more signups incoming.

Hi guys, I've had some problems with game mods. My aoc goes out of sync when playing mods like allied vision or GotA, and I don't get why.

Any possible reason for that? I dont want to screw up games, so I'd apprecciate any help.

Thanks in advance.

You should be instantly disqualified for using that in a tournament and banned in rated games along with anyone else using macros. I would like to know the moderators who told you that was okay because they clearly do not understand that macro at all. It does do A+B. It removes you having to deselect the monks manually with your mouse and because of that it allows you to keep your mouse in one spot instantly selecting units to convert. I've played vs this macro and I died almost everytime vs it because he used 20 monks to convert 20 units instantly. It made this 17xx player 2k6 with monk rush. The fastest player in AoC couldn't even come close to deselecting monks with the speed that macro allows you to do it. Any decent player knows how unfair that macro is especially in monk wars/arena. In General all macros should be banned in tournaments and in rated games. It's a 3rd party additive that was not built into the game and is used solely for the purpose of unfair advantage. Don't be fooled when they say it makes playing easier or some line like this. It's used solely for unfair advantage.

This is what Chris (Voobly Admin) said about this particular one. Key thing is they are still not enforcing and banning the macros.

You gain an unfair advantage with your macro, it's 100% cheating. Please don't do this on Voobly.

Now it seems that they think its cheating too but nothing really is being done about it. Btw you cant post in that thread on Voobly because I think its locked.

  • If they think its cheating then why not say it outright publicly.
  • Responding to one guy who came out in the open doesn't stop from multiple people who are still using it.

Hi,

I have a quick question have the tourney settings. When selecting civs for your team and the other team are you allowed to select who on that team plays the civ or can the other team decide themselves?
