@  Marc-Marc Sh... : (28 July 2015 - 04:43 PM)

@vVv Bizkit You down for MLGs? I'll invite you

@  vVv BoDYRoTx : (28 July 2015 - 04:43 PM)

i gotta eat and stuff, but i should be on around 800pm

@  vVv BoDYRoTx : (28 July 2015 - 04:43 PM)

yeah but it'll have to be afterwhile

@  Nero : (28 July 2015 - 04:43 PM)

I did Draft Kings for the NFL last season. Wasn't too wild about it. Much more satisfying to just bet individual games.

@  Nero : (28 July 2015 - 04:42 PM)

I was talking betting ML, not daily fantasy. That'd be a tad too much involvement.

@  Marc-Marc Sh... : (28 July 2015 - 04:42 PM)

@vVv BoDYRoTx You down for MLGs? I'll invite you to the team

@  vVv NaturaL : (28 July 2015 - 04:41 PM)

all about matchups for the week and who's trending upwards and downwards

@  vVv BoDYRoTx : (28 July 2015 - 04:41 PM)

no whats up @Marc-Marc Shadwick

@  vVv NaturaL : (28 July 2015 - 04:41 PM)

@Nero it's similar to draft kings if you play that for baseball or basketball

@  vVv Oriklad : (28 July 2015 - 04:41 PM)

Karthus on ARAM... Hoping it is good

@  vVv NaturaL : (28 July 2015 - 04:40 PM)

@vVv Bizkit rip family life

@  Nero : (28 July 2015 - 04:39 PM)

I'd be interested to get to know the game. Tried dabbling a bit with LoL and SC2 on Bovada, but didn't really know enough to see any serious returns.

@  vVv Bizkit : (28 July 2015 - 04:39 PM)

@vVv NaturaL like my ex wife

@  vVv NaturaL : (28 July 2015 - 04:38 PM)

@Nero I play the cheap games, since i'm dirt cheap

@  Marc-Marc Sh... : (28 July 2015 - 04:38 PM)

@vVv Bizkit Chilling.

@  Marc-Marc Sh... : (28 July 2015 - 04:38 PM)

@vVv BoDYRoTX Did you get my message?

@  vVv Bizkit : (28 July 2015 - 04:38 PM)

@vVv BoDYRoTx sup bb

@  vVv Bizkit : (28 July 2015 - 04:37 PM)

@Marc-Marc Shadwick nm bro just got home. You?

@  Nero : (28 July 2015 - 04:37 PM)

I noticed Ballack does Fantasy posts. Do any of y'all bet LoL or any other games?

Even the smallest scraping of what Halo has done in terms of customization over the years would go a long way in Gears.

I am confident that Epic will do a good job, but I wish they, as well as other developers would look at the success that custom match options has in the Halo franchise. Custom/Private Match Options are the most helpful addition for competitive play in any game.

Great read! I find this ESPECIALLY applies to us brawl players. As we modify pretty much ALL of everything that we can. We ban the use of items, most stages and just about any and everything that is considered random or anti-competitive. I find at its core brawl is (even after the modifications it still has issues though lol) very anti-competitive and unbalanced in general. But we spent years working on creating a ruleset (that roots all the way back to 64) that makes a fairily solid competetive game.

Honestly I think custom rule sets are the best. I hate the games where I die on some crap such as; where the other had a default advantage such as spawning at the top of a cliff looking straight at the back of my head with a sniper rifle.

Map design is super important, even a small amount of a-symmetry can cause an imbalance. In sc2 Xel'Naga caverns bottom spawn takes one extra creep tumor jump to get the creep to the natural (3 on bot compared to 2 on top). While this is not HUGE it can play a role in some timing attacks as the creep might not be spread far enough to have proper movement.

This is a great article and makes a lot of sense. There is a lot that goes into making a game compatible to be competitive. It's interesting because to me it seems like the more basic the game the more competitive it can be look at halo 1 for example. If you make things really complicated you have to add just as many tools to tone those things down and make everything reliable and less random hence competitive.

I especially like the ICCUP maps created for Starcraft. It's like an entirely different game that I'm not used to because I didn't play Brood War.

Also, Gears maps need more COG pistol.

Great article!
