    The only tourney structure which makes sense is to match purely based on the newly assigned Elo of that given tournament. Especially as each player is limited in the number of games he is allowed to...

    How is this different from any tournament structure where everyone starts at the same baseline Elo for that tournament? Even at power 12, good players will crush poor players, regardless of how big...

    My impression of the power curve / barrier of entry for Factions back when it originally released (Feb 2013 was it? Almost a whole year ago???) was that it was relatively easy and undemanding to...

    I've only played that matchup 4 or 5 times against someone who knew what they were doing. Based on my analasys of some of these battles, plus my own bipolar thought experiments, I don't see a clear...

    On the other hand, archers have the lowest total amount of stats, and even worse directly combat relevant stats (STR and ARM) by far. A 3 archer team starts 6 (?) points of stats down, although I...

    I posit that Varl come in only one gender (men/neuter), and that they reproduce via Mitosis.

    Since Varl are so tough, it is quite actively difficult for them to convince their cells to split and...

    I'm still around, mostly lurking. As I wrote in the Suggestions from Steam thread, I wish that the devs would be able to devote more time to expanding the multiplayer. Until such time occurs, I will...

    There is a whole element to competetive gaming which is deeply psychological or very "dark sideish". My favorite example of this is the Bobby Fischer vs Boris Spassky 1972 chess world championship,...

    LoliSauce you have pointed out what is for me a general life principle. I don't try to get good at only a single thing, I try to understand the fundamental principles behind the thing I have learned...

    I'm going to say something potentially quite unpopular here.



    Just to point out, this is a slightly flawed way of thinking. The single player game, if I understand correctly, will have ~10...

    The timer is something I didn't talk about much (at all) in my post, because I see it as a separate topic to timing. In theory, every turn you have has a "perfect move" which will profoundly impact...

    Positioning is supremely important to get your full damage potential from your units, especially melee units or archers hoping for puncture damage. I don't find that the active abilities you...

    I'm experiencing the same issue - loading screen with the spinning axes doesn't ever end, so I can't get to the strand/load the game. The last time Factions was able to load was about 24 hours ago,...

    It's funny, because if we were to measure, Stoicmom would be the definite winner :)

    There are 2 main possiblities I see for the growth of Factions:

    1) a flourishing competetive scene

    2) sufficient in-game rewards are added that people have the desire to keep playing (to build...

    It looks to me like the key to winning from this situation is keeping his Thrasher from landing a strong hit on your archers, crippling his archer, and doing a break+break+pierce combo on the WM.

    That's understood. But it is also my understanding that sub-optimal builds in fairly well balanced games can succeed at all levels of play except the very top 1~2% of any given competetive scene.

    I still think this is more a question of the overall balance between archers and melee units, not BMs specifically. All archer archetypes should be relatively balanced against each other, and archers...

    I would point out that there are 2 different aspects to this discussion, which are worth considering separately.

    1) Are BMs too strong compared to other archer types?
