Very nice. I just watched it. I should probably experiment with different civs instead of sticking with China. I should give Germany another chance...
Groovy.

Very intereresting.

It would be interested if we could apply this sort of micro in our games, too.

You never know, one of us could become Lieutenant General. :D

Fascinating. It amazes me how little time expert players need to manage their economy & housing. After the initial minute or so, all you ever see of his TC are brief flashes for the rest of the game.

Trust me, I'm not nearly that flashy. :) Only the top players can do that. It's ridiculous.
Groovy.

Some people are just faster than others...

lol. Seeing this is like comparing yourself to some true athlete. I never did any better than 11.50 seconds on a 100 meter sprint. If I would run it now I probably would have trouble making 14 seconds. But I would probably never get under 11 seconds, even with the best coaches in the world...

It may have been downhill with the wind and hand timed - but I once ran a 10.9 100m. No one can take that away from me!

Why should i run 100m? I have a drivers license :)

Edit: It's even more fascinating that he can tell that fluently what he's doing while he does it. If i'm concentrated that much on the game i can't tell anyone what i'm doing. Looks like he could answer a phone call while he beats Fird :neutral: .

I think the voiceover was recorded later. He knew too well what was going on.

Agreed. Certainly he was commenting on the position of the bank before we saw it on the clip. Nice replay though.

No you could see a glimpse of the bank as it built just before he commented, but he said it was gg before anyone said anything lol

I once ran 100 feet in 9 seconds flat. Is that fast? I'm not familiar with those fancy metres or whatever high-falutin' Euro stuff that is.
