Humans are social organisms, and there are strong evolutionary pressures that promote pro-social behaviour. A couple hundred years of technological and sociological changes aren’t going to trump hundreds of thousands of years of natural selection.

Humans are fundamentally “good”.

It’s always nice to know that they still teach the importance of consent in schools.

Perhaps I’m a cynic, but I wouldn’t treat a drunken booty call from someone “f wasted” as consent to do anything.

Consider, for example, if she agreed to sell her vehicle at under market value while “f wasted”, and you have it recorded on your smart device, or actually have her sign a piece of paper, do you think that agreement would be legit? If the answer is no, she’s probably also incapable of giving consent to engage in sex.

Given the potential ramifications of sexual intercourse, I think that it would be unwise to ascribe consent so easily. As ldv pointed out, and crazyeye2011 admitted, probably skirting into rape territory.

Of course, on a personal level, someone else getting “f wasted” is a turn-off for me as well.

Thanks! Apparently, all I had to do was open a pack in England.

Maybe shadowhopeful and moraku were on to something [http://www.kongregate.com/forums/2437-general-tyrant-discussion/topics/283282-well-i-quit#posts-6108988].

This thread should really be retitled “reveal your alt”.

I nominate ladolcevita. I have never seen anyone intersperse images with their surging quite as deftly.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / The "Everyone Who Beats Me is Cheating" club

Is it cheating to be naturally endowed with superior Tyrant skillz?

This isn’t actually that easy a question to answer.

Consider for example: What if an athlete’s body naturally produces excessive human growth hormones without any extrinsic interference? What about a female athlete who has a set of genetic mutations that causes her to produce and respond to androgens in a manner similar to a man, while still having all female sexually reproductive machinery intact (e.g. Brienne of Tarth)?

Clearly, if you’ve been bitten by a radioactive spider, you’re DQ’ed. But what if you’re born with superhuman abilities (e.g. Ozymandias)?

I start from the premise that women are more social than men.

Since Kongregate is social media, I find that a presumption of Kongregate forum participants to be a woman reasonable. Therefore, to me, all posters are considered women unless proven otherwise. (Happy Woman’s day everyone!)

Or more succinctly:

That’s just you running with a borderline insane argument. Here, the “drama fuels Tyrant” argument is more an unsubstantiated theory that isn’t outright implausible on its face.

I like conquest art in general. I’m not as fan of the malice, but I’ll take what I can get.

From a grammatical point of view, absent this thread, it’s unclear whether the middle finger is directed at Havoc Launchers or a middle finger from Havoc Launchers. The presences of punctuation may be of assistance. E.g. “FU -HL”. I do not recommend a comma.

There’s a nugget of genius hidden by underwhelming execution here. I’d like to see OOHnirav make the same pitch. This can be a teachable moment for effective writing. :)

The general rule of thumb is that alts should not interact in a way so that result of the interaction would produce an unfair advantage to players who do not have alts.

Based on that framework we have some clear points. The safest thing to do would be to sit out; sitting out would clearly not be a violation. In contrast, a clear violation would be if both alts were in one faction or if the alts are in different factions and one alt deliberately lost their battles in order to give the alt on the opposing side.

Things become quite murkier where both alts are on opposing factions and both are fighting, or when one alt sits out. Depending on how knight templar people want to be about it, these might also be considered violations.

I’m generally more lenient because I reject slippery slope arguments off-hand, so I probably would not have thought what you were doing a clear violation of our no cheating code. I kind of fail to see how either of your accounts would have gained any advantage over a player without an alt. But that may not reflect the attitudes of some of our more conservative members.

Anyways, if that’s all you’ve done, then you’re fine in my books, noting that my books are not reflective of P. rex conventions.

That is unless I’m supposed to be the Knight Templar, in which case I will be coming for you with a Flaming Sword of Justice. If dzrtr and I were both male, that statement would be quite homoerotic. If I were male and dzrtr female, it would be sexually harrassing. If I were female and dzrtr male, it would be ironic. And if we were both female, well then I don’t know. Alas, this is the internet and everyone is female and the final conclusion I arrive at is I don’t know. I do know, however, that my dualist approach to categorizing human gender is pretty bigoted.

If memory serves me right, there was a period of time known as the Blackfyre rebellion where a crew of P. rex alts in an unofficial sister faction declared a war against their mains in P. rex proper. I can’t remember what the casus belli was, probably independence or show superiority or something. It might have had something to do with successions and claiming thrones, it’s pretty hard to discern due to the propaganda efforts on both sides. The rebellion was ultimately defeated, but I seem to recall that the mains didn’t fight against their alts. It was pretty close though.
