    as the title says ..
    a simple vote thread ..


    we need to be now clear of the route we want to take for general competitive play be it ranked or tournaments in general ..

    THIS is important if we want to further get people for competitive play and what kind of competitive players
    we NEED to show NOW what potential players can expect from competive PA play ..


    take a stand with a vote now !

    WAY to put up a biased poll : D

    I recall when you posted that on all my new polls.

    Oh the irony!

    I feel the whole issue is kinda making itself seem soooooo much bigger than it really is.

    Probably a nice example of how "fear" is most often created from mysterious mostly unknown things (possible mods of the future)

    three clear simple voteoptions ...

    also why should you want to allow mods that are for cheating?

    speaking about possible wallhacks and stuff

    arguebly autobuild and the energymod are considered cheating

    also I said "show me" not "dream me up". apart for autobuild which has been around for longer than this debate has on this forum multiplied by the number of posts in each of it's threads, and free energy wich doesn't have a prooven advantage nor is it unfair..... wallhacks don't exist in this game and "stuff" is as vague as it gets........... .....literally!

    That is not how you use capital letters.

    And that is a grave accent not an apostrophe.

    And why can you vote "no vote"?

    Nothing personal lol. Nice to see the way the votes are swaying.

    I don't consider autobuild a cheat, I tried using it and I found it interfered more than actually helped, I just use the infinite build mod (or something like that) to turn continuous build on by default. It is superior to autobuild in every way so long as you keep your eco and factories relatively balanced.

    What mods do the best players use? I use infinite build. I tried uber maps but I think it lags my potato computer so I got rid of it.

    elodea is reputably one of the best if not the best and I hear he uses none.

    apparently UI mods have nothing to do with success, go figure :rolleyes:
    (would you be surprised if I told you Lu_Xun got where he did in FA with minimum resolution, using a junk mouse and no mods?)

    to really answer your question you're not going to find one clear answer. As you perfectly illustrated lots of mods can deter your performance as does UberMap right now which I would have recommended to you if you hadn't said your computer got lagged by infinite build (which is taxing but far less). It really depends on personal preference.
