Aproximately how many players online on C&C3 or KW These days?

Posted by: eXs.bikefan Apr 8 2021, 17:56 PM

TW: 2 (10 if you count the 8 people who play their 1 or 2 real-life-friends only as well).
KW: 100.

It is a shame actually. TW died just when I had reached pro level.

2?! Wow, that's even less then CCG. How come it died so fast?

Posted by: shocktapus Apr 8 2021, 22:20 PM

There are definitely more than 2 people who play. People organise to play games through discord - there is no point logging in and just hoping that someone else will join.

Yeah definitely more than 2. There are 3 players active in the game.

I correct myself, if you check the cnc-online site really, really often (like 100 times a day), one day you will happen to see shoktrepet online as well, so it is 3 dedicated players actually, not 2. And if you are really lucky and stars align you will see GuidoJuiceHead or DrownU-InMyPee hosting his redzone rampage 1v1 room. So I guess you can argue there is 4 dedicated players even though the last tournament had only 1 sign up.

Pro games from old times.


Posted by: TRIberiumX Apr 9 2021, 14:53 PM

Active on TW: Lumos, Khvost (Recently I see him on more), R1ldcom, (+ a handful of other people who probably don't know about GR)
Fairly active on TW: Pennywise, Shock (but recently this year not so much), ross, Goofing, Lurik, Myself (I put myself in this category, because I skip KW and play TW when some others are online and ask me if I'm free. Otherwise consider me in the category below)
Appearances on TW: shok, Onch, TheVice, Claymore

[Active :: Everyday/Almost Everyday]
[Fairly Active :: At least once a week]
[Appearances :: Ranging from 1 - 4 days in a month at least]

=

2 is a severe underestimate.

You can add me as well then. I have dupes no one apart from Luvaskot knows about for playing dodgers. I've made appearances under those smurfs in the past year.

The funniest thing is that Dimitri does not realize he lost to me on TW under a smurf not too long ago.

yeah but even with this, you still dodge.

Onchy come to KW for some 1v1s? I am online.

seems like C&C3 has a lot in common with CCG. Experts dodging.

off-topic:

@signature

Covid-19 deniers and belittlers are under-educated wankers.
In most cases, the family tree is a circle.

Who would ever deny Covid-19? There's a difference between it's existence and actually realistically looking at it's impact though.

This is an exaggeration. 99% of TW experts do not play the game anymore. shoktrepet plays once in two weeks (mostly with Russians since he is Russian himself) and he does not dodge honestly. The only other expert badge bearer who plays the game is shocktapus. Whether shocktapus dodges or not - someone else can debate that. I won't. Not like I care. But point is: Only two experts play the game. So even if he was dodging, "experts dodging" (plural) is exaggerated.

I do not dodge.

shoktrepet asked for some games last week - I replied 10 mins later saying that I can play, he replied later saying "too late I play KW". Does this mean that he dodges?

No, of course not.

I have never dodged and never will.

That said, you cannot be available to play 24/7 and sometimes you are not in the right state of mind to play serious games.

The last time you asked me to play bike in a showmatch for example I had had about 2 hours sleep and a lingering hangover and asked me if I was available for some games. I said sure thinking that they were "for fun" games and then you suddenly said that it was vs bike for $30 or whatever. Even then I tried playing a game or 2 before forfeiting - this is not dodging - that was me not being able to concentrate and play properly.

Saying that I dodge is an absolutely ludicrous accusation.

If you are talking about this KW tournament you were talking to me about playing in, that is a completely different matter. I don't enjoy playing KW and haven't played it in years so I told you I wasn't going to play. This would be like me challenging you in SC2 - you don't play that game so why would you accept?

Posted by: eXs.bikefan Apr 10 2021, 15:26 PM

If not playing in a KW tournament is dodging then onchy is a dodger as well. He dodged my Redzone tournament.

I said cause when we tried to organize some event, you were dodging. It is a fact.
Loosing to bikerush 0 - 2 then run away without saying anything, this is a pure dodge.
Also, 2 time you did not show up against trepet. Eveyone was waiting in the lobby

So 3 time ?

I would have never expected this from you shock. But it is what it is.

To bash Lumos the low mid np you show up and to call Wanted the dodger when you are yourself a dodger... Ofc you ll come with the best excuses as every dodgers do.

1 time it can be called an accident, 2 time it can be called a coincidence, but 3 time it is clearly called a dodge.

'tis getting interesting.

Posted by: shocktapus Apr 14 2021, 06:21 AM

This is not true - like I said before, I was not in the right condition to play bike that day and it was sprung on me literally minutes before I was supposed to play. If you had told me 2 or 3 days in advance then I'd have been more than happy to play. The fact was that you caught me at a bad time. Also, I actually played 2 games and then forfeited. Someone who dodges does not play at all to avoid losing. I was so committed to not dodging that despite being tired and with a horrible headache I tried my best to play. After 2 games I realised that I couldn't focus and was playing horrible and it was only making me feel worse I quit because it was pointless to continue - it wasn't fun for me to play, it wouldn't have been fun for anyone to watch, and it wouldn't have been showcasing my best play.

Also vs trepet, he could play on days when I couldn't play and I think one time when the date was arranged something unexpected came up. Does that make it a dodge? No - the date was rearranged and I played the games vs him in the end.

Wanted, however, used to have a go at Cloverfield for dodging, however just before he stopped playing TW when I used to ask him for ladder games he refused (when he was online and available - instead he would go off playing 1v1 vs weaker players). This made me lose respect for him as I never used to think that he was that way.

If Bike, trepet, Lumos or you asked me for games and I am available to play I am more than happy to do so. If I asked trepet or bike right now to play in 10 mins and they do not respond or tell me they are busy, does that mean that they are dodgers? No - it obviously doesn't - and it is a comparable situation you are making.

Basically you are just annoyed that I didn't want to play in a KW tournament you were running and are making up baseless accusations as some sort of weird way of getting back at me for not doing so.

Your accusation basically boils down to "there was a time when you said you would play games, played some games and then forfeited the rest of them and a couple of times when you said you would play some games, didn't play some games but played the games later when you were free to play them."

Everyone (worthwhile) knows that that does not make me a dodger. It just makes you look ridiculous claiming that I am.

Reading this reminds me of randyvectra calling me out, in a lobby with 10+ people, for being a "dodger" for refusing to play Redzone Rampage with him. That was hilarious.

First, lumos needs to take his revenge against OLLI. May be some have forgotten, but Lumos and OLLI had a showmatch BO3 and LUMOS lost 2 - 1 hahahahaha
And Lumos the next days after loosing vs Olli flamed hard OLLI cause he waaaas soooo mad.

Looking at some of the names on the first screenshot I'd say the matches are from 2019.

Posted by: Thanatos May 7 2021, 07:50 AM

looks like Olli isnt actually olli

Posted by: eXs.bikefan May 7 2021, 10:52 AM

A tournament in which every participant used someone else's account would be fun. You'd not know who you're actually up against.
