The only thing I ask - stop using term "proof" improperly. Thanks.
I have agreed to abandon the term. I agree again. You're welcome, and thanks to you as well.

Re: Main Factions Balance

Regarding my "disingenuous argument". This is not an argument, this is what is called a well-known or accepted fact. If there is no evidence that the statement is true or false, but most experts believe that this statement is true, then it is called an accepted fact. You can watch a thousand replay...

Re: Main Factions Balance

we have at least 3 documented expert opinions. Thus, the Undead-Knalgans imbalance is an accepted fact. This is a disingenuous argument. 1. There is no data in the thread to support the arguments made there. The arguments that were made consist chiefly of opinions. 2. A fact is an objectively corre...

Re: Main Factions Balance

Sorry sergey, but I am not interested in contributing to a poorly conducted project. I cannot foresee myself contributing to the Ladder Era in any way. As I have said previously, the burden of proof lies with the party that claims imbalances exist to begin with. There should first be feedback on spe...

Re: Main Factions Balance

...I'm done responding to this thread. I would venture so far as to say that Hejnewar is more qualified than you are to lead a balancing project. Granted, Hejnewar may not have as good an understanding of the game as you do, and his approach to balancing may be flawed at times - but he is able to l...

Re: Main Factions Balance

Years and years of playing the game at a high level as well as speaking to others that played at a high level as well. This is not a statement that requires such in-depth analysis and proof. It is common knowledge among the best players in the game. Where was a consensus reached? Rather than one pl...

Re: Main Factions Balance

I think the main reason UD have a lower win ratio is because of how unbalanced the matchup is vs Knalgans in Default Era What is this claim based on? Such a claim should not be made without strong proof to substantiate it; the burden of proof lies with he who claims such imbalances exist. A large s...

Re: How to play as undead.

Let's start with maps. Every old map pack that was used during ladder matches / tournaments contained only maps considered balanced. You do not balance factions according to available maps but you create maps with balance in mind. P1 and P2, you can shuffle sides then its luck. So its fair and bala...

Re: How to play as undead.

Would you like to elaborate, Hardwood? The factions are meant to be balanced, but maybe that's not the case in every circumstance... I see talk about faction balance a lot, where factions are seemingly weighed against each other in a vacuum - this is a poor approach to be sure. In the first place, ...

Please note that all the factions are balanced; none of them should be considered weakest.
