Removing randomness does not necessarily make a “sterile” game. If the game is designed well, it can rely on player skill with minimal randomness.

Does this look “sterile” to you:


While I tend to think of it more as a competition of skill than a “sport” in the traditional sense of the word, there are certainly similarities.

Yes it does, Everything you do has a random element to it, If you are an archer the wind could blow at any minute, If you play baseball an insect could land on you distracting you, If you take away the RNG for complete balance where people can anticipate exactly who will win a battle before it even begins because they have the superior troops, There is no excitement or hope involved in the battle.

So yes it does look sterile. Civilization wouldn’t be fun if your troops had a 100 percent chance of victory against another, World of Warcraft took away out talent trees and forced us into 1 of 3 groups for balance but they neutered it. You need randomness to make it interesting.

That is incorrect. Because actual people are involved, there is always randomness. Even if the randomness isn’t built into the game itself, people can be unpredictable. An inferior team can create a clever plan to defeat a more powerful opponent. A skilled player can have a stroke of bad luck. The game itself doesn’t need randomness in its system when the outcome is determined by the choices that the player make in the game. In this way, it is like a sport. Yes, a baseball player could become distracted, but that is something that affects that individual player’s action at that moment. There is no randomness built into the rules of baseball. Skill based games have a similar principle.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Meat of the future

Imagine we’re in the not-so-far future. Researchers have developed a way to create meat by growing the flesh in a lab. No actual animal is harmed. There is no thinking, feeling creature that experiences pain or death. Instead, edible flesh is grown in a laboratory. The flesh is identical to that of a source organism which was not harmed, it only had a small sample of its cells taken to grow the futuristic meat. For example, with a few cells from a cow and some genetic engineering, a copious amount of high quality beef can be obtained. And a few cells can be taken from that to repeat the process.

My question is, would you support this? There are people who would believe that this is unnatural. However, this meat would be indistinguishable in taste and texture from meat that was actually taken from the animal.

As a side question, what do you think vegetarians who don’t eat meat for moral reasons would think? Since no actual animal dies, would they be willing to eat this future meat?

That isn’t always true. There are rich people who are only rich because their parents were rich. And there are smart people who are too poor to have the resources needed for them to reach their full potential.

Rule what? Why are you so vague? You do know of meritocracy don’t you?

I simply think that the rulers of a society should be the smartest of that society. I know of meritocracy and that is exactly what I am advocating.

Topic: Off-topic / Immigration

I will now present my personal, and perhaps unpopular opinion: Any service that is paid for by taxes should only be available to people who are in the country legally. But I also believe that becoming legal should be a much simpler process than it currently is.

Thoughts?

Topic: Off-topic / Pokemon is an overrated cashgrab

It’s the same reason why people keep buying the new Call of Duty games.

Except Pokemon has been doing it for even longer.


Yes, I just compared Pokemon’s success to Call of Duty’s success. If anyone has a problem with that, I don’t care.

Topic: Off-topic / Why is Male Circumcision even legal/accepted?

A man is born with foreskin and I think if it was “bad” or “useless”, then the body would have gotten rid of it (evolution).

Not always true. Do you know what it means for something to be vestigial?

That is far from the truth. People are different, and though some may become docile after a beating, others might keep a grudge and desire vengeance, for example, becoming even more destructive

Thats only if their older and you still spank ur kids ( which is weird af). Its not child abuse, Its required to instill respect and enough fear of the parents so that they do as their told and are well behaved when asked to be.

If the child “fears” their parent, then they are a bad parent.

Respect =/= fear

It is possible to teach a child how to behave properly without hitting them.

Physical violence doesn’t solve anything, you have to get in their head. Spanking is used by parents who don’t know how to actually teach the child what to do, so they just hit them whenever they do something wrong.

In the real world, you don’t solve problems by hitting people when they do something wrong.

without involving the nexus and the regulations?

Here’s what you do:
-Go to the forum games category
-Make a game thread

And there you go
Thank me never

They banned from making there.

Maybe because you broke the rules?


Wouldn’t your question be best answered by the FG mods?

Which means idiots are sucking off a shit movie just because they think they’re patriotic.

It looks like it is a decent comedy.
