Palestine, but it’s way too late and if memory serves it wasn’t America that carved things the way they are (I was surprised). Also, I think coolguy Putin’s all for Israel.

got me thinking about Cerealguy. CG was helpless innocence and irritating troll all in one post. you see it every once in a while still, but they burn out too fast once they realize they have an audience.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / Who is pip?

I’m curious

hard to believe. what pip was loved for was being a consummate voice of reason which, i believe, you’ve already decided isn’t impressive.

if you really want to know, i’d suggest googling for posts on the forums by TheRealPip and read through the threads; trying to explain the merits of his level-headedness out in long form would be boring and troll bait, and has already attracted a few. if you don’t, then you’re trolling. either way, locking your own thread would be the big thing to do here.

Hey, all—

Remember that in most game forums, we don’t allow much or any off-topic content. So the fact that some is allowed here is a concession to the way your particular game has not-evolved.

It sounds like a whiny restatement, but this hones the edge of the off-topic threads. The forum cannot be about the fractional game that it has become.

Edit: I see SD86 said this in his last paragraph here.

Let’s think about the goal, though. The goal is to balance the amount of off-topic content with the amount of game-specific content.

That goal is not the same goal of the people making the complaints. They want a forum where they can be absurd, and I think it’s a noble goal.

I think the abused are making too many absurdist threads.
I think the mods are being a bit harsh.
I think it’s an adjustment period.
I think tricky is right to remind the abused to use the proper channels: it gathers the negative stats in one place allowing higher-ups to make better decisions; being spam-crazy only works with our DEVs on the T:U forums :P

ain’t nobody got time for that

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / [PSA] "Ask ____" Threads

There could be one ‘Ask ___’ at a time, it could be one long stickied thread, and the mod could change the title to let everyone know who’s answering! More exposure for the IAMA and the mods get to mod. The ultimate postcount thread now that we totally seem to have lost the counter card monster : (

Edit: FIQ’s going for a counter card revival!

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / Help rets with homework

I’d love to see that data too. I think developer response plays a massive part, though, which makes the outcome’s reason really hard to see for what it is.

There’s pretty clearly a spike of interest generated by cheating, but the long-term effects are hard to control. Either the cheat becomes part of the game, or the developers ‘squish the bug’:

If the former, either the DEVs are savvy and twist the cheat into tricky gameplay (next level shit) or they ignore it and players who don’t like cheaters, which is a lot, leave (this level shit).

If the latter, cheaters/wanna-be cheaters leave because the game was more fun and now is less fun (bye) or big-spenders leave the game (bye) but free players stay

Slightly off-topic, concerning using Boris as a metric of player effectiveness.

Would Talon be a reasonable assessment of player effectiveness? There’s >2000 of them, which surprises me.
