@ftxcommando Isn't this only for aeon torp bombers?
The other ones use normal torps (unless this was changed since 2013)
Did you know aeon destroyers and czar uses depth charges instead of torpedos, which for those that don't know cannot be blocked by anti torpedo defense.
If I'm around for this I'll be there, so tentatively sign me up.
This may be a little sacrilegious to fans of ACU snipes and memelords, but another approach could be to drastically nerf the damage of the ACU laser to like 300-400 DPS and decrease its cost. You can position the cost to be more affordable towards early t3/late t2 stage for 10x10 with reasonable mex/reclaim distribution. I've always been a fan of making ACU secondary weapons more used, e.g. sera double gun, acu tml, etc. (obviously other topics obviously).
You know what would be cool, WWPC, I feel like everyone would be happy. Tournies for all brackets.
@wainan how does that work if you mass stall through the entire construction of the unit. Does the unit cost 50% power in that scenario and it finishes at normal speed or 200% power and it finishes at half speed?
@ftxcommando Well yes you're right, before the change to normalize torp bombers seraphim and I think uef torps got screwed by torp defense and aeon and cybran (uses current behavior) weren't effected by it. I may be mixing up the factions.
Well TBH WWPC should be automated, but might as well just implement a general tournament hosting framework as Thomas mentioned.
@big-bennis-magic You should sandbox it and post the replay to prove your point
I gotta dip ️
+1 on the service,
you could use some sort of cheaper object storage like AWS glacier or azure archive as place to dump it + a cron job to just upload xGB every + some sort of proxy api to pull the data when requested (probably almost never).
EDIT: looks like wasabi could be relatively cheap https://wasabi.com/
