You’re atheistic because you don’t believe in God. You not caring is just a personality trait.

I’m pretty sure he said he was an agnostic, not an atheist.

You have 6 posts in this thread talking about how he “should” have worded his post. That sounds a lot like you care about what he was trying to say, IMO.

Read the second sentence. I’m complaining about the drivel he ended up sending. I don’t care about what he might have meant like all the people saying it doesn’t matter because you can guess the logic behind the post.

No one complains about the drivel you post, so why are you complaining about my non-drivel?

Are you wattro?

Let me rephrase: No one complains about the drivel you post, so why are you complaining about someone else’s non-drivel?

Topic: Off-topic / Is atheism and agnosticism a cult?

Originally posted by Ubernomaden:

Agnostic and athiest are not the same.

Both don’t believe in God. Agnosticism is just a word people invented because atheism has a bad reputation.

No. Agnostics don’t know whether there is a god or not.

Agnostics are saying that they don’t know. I personally believe in the big bang, but I also believe that the big bang may have been caused by a god (but I don’t know for sure).

You either believe in Him or you don’t. There’s no in-between. Agnostics are people that don’t believe in God but are too scared to say it loud and clear.

I have read none of those books.

So it’s a coincidence atheists say the exact things these people write.

I wouldn’t call being agnostic a religion either.

That’s why this topic is so useful. You’re the only cult that can’t admit you’re a cult. You have to mislead people into thinking your beliefs are a science.

An atheist doesn’t believe a god exists or, in some cases, a specific god exists. An agnostic doesn’t believe there’s enough evidence either for against the existence of god. They kind of sit right in the middle between the two extremes which are believing a god exists and not believing a god exists.

Cult : a small religious group that is not part of a larger and more accepted religion and that has beliefs regarded by many people as extreme or dangerous.

Atheism and agnosticism are not groups of people and therefore cannot be cults. Random atheists or agnostics aren’t cults simply because they aren’t groups of people. Even if a there was a group of atheists or agnostics that met up once in a while or at intervals, it still wouldn’t be a cult. Even if someone is an atheist or agnostic, it doesn’t mean they are even part of some larger movement or group of people.

Not sure why you brought it up, but Pascal’s Wager is the weakest argument for believing in and worshiping the Judeo-Christian deity.

Believing there is a god has little to do with following any particular religion. Of course, most people who believe in a god follow some religious tradition which is usually the one their parents followed or that they were brought up with.

This is why I like being agnostic. Keeping an open mind whilst not appearing to be a dick to those who are religious.

I think there is nothing wrong with not sharing a faith, but you should try not to be disrespectful to other faiths either.

You do know that atheist =/= antitheist, right?

That isn’t restricted to atheists or anti-theists, even theists can be like that. I don’t believe that is an accurate stereotype of atheists or anti-theists, anyway.

saturating

That’s a fancy word. I challenge you to use it correctly without contradicting yourself next time.

Except he used it without contradicting himself. The market can be saturated with a lot of games of the same genre without any advancement in the development of the genre. Some of this can be attributed to devs simply putting what is, essentially, reskin’s or clones of already existing games.

Well can yoy imagine an OT were everyone is super nice to everyone else?

Yesh… That wouldt work. It would be boring.

Not riddling a forum with flamewars and other useless trash doesn’t require being “super nice” to people, just requires being considerate of others. And yes, it would work. It would only be boring if all you were interested in was derailing threads and starting/participating in flamewars. “But it’s the OT forum” is a BS excuse for promoting anti-social behavior as allowable.

Yeah, my problem with that is…

Its something that makes OT unique from the rest, it makes it stand out too…. I dont think its a good idea to get rid of it. Theres other forums for that anyways.

But that isn’t the point of OT, that’s just want you want it to be: an unregulated cess-pool.

Just because someone is new or isn’t understanding as fast, it doesn’t mean you need to fuck with them every single time. You all deserve to be banned permanently. Not only that, but you’re what makes OT the worst of the worst. Get over it. Learn something new. Go out and live. Now get the fuck off of my internet, you obnoxious trolls.

Don’t feed the trolls. They live for posts like yours. Well, the most anti-social ones do or the least emotionally stable ones at least.

This sub-forum is for this game which allows people to post such things as suggestions and ideas for this game that the devs can read. Incidentally, ninjakiwi does have an account on Kongregate, so it’s quite acceptable for people to have fun posting ideas and suggestions here regardless of how much you don’t like it. Even if they didn’t have an account here it would still be perfectly acceptable for people to post suggestions and ideas regardless of how much you don’t like it.

Energizing Clickstorm is always a worse option than Energizing Lucky Strikes or Super Clicks if you are trying to increase click DPS regardless of where you are in the game.

Um, not if you are using the click ancients.

Originally posted by ncrmncrXIII:

hard to call it cheating when the whole point of the game is to put it up while your doing something else

It’s easy to call it cheating when you use another program to actually play the game for you. The game running on auto-pilot with only the DPS from the heroes you’ve hired is one thing, but using another program to actually play the game is something else entirely.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Dark Ritual issue.. I think

Originally posted by Trisscar:

Is Dark Ritual supposed to be resetting it’s dps boost every time I kill the tab CH is on and come back? I’ve never gotten over more than one “Ritual used this world” because as soon as I leave and come back, it counts all of my previous uses as only lifetime used, even if I haven’t ascended yet.

Edit: It actually just now reset while I was typing this post, without me closing the game. I have no clue what is going on now. XD

It’s just a display bug with the counter, and has no effect on your DPS and doesn’t reset the DPS gained from the Dark Ritual. The counter shouldn’t be used for anything as the increase is applied to the individual Heroes current DPS.

For example :

((((DPS x 1.05)+increases for 25 levels)x4)x1.05)

So, even if the counter gets reset, it has no effect on anything since the effect is static and the game doesn’t really need to know how many times you’ve used Dark Ritual during the current run.

If you can’t get past level 140 I’d suggest Ascending until you can. You won’t be able to hire Dread Knight until you can get to level 270+, anyway.

I do not see it as a cheat, because you are not playing other people. If this were a multiplayer game, then yes it would be cheating. In this case I would say that it is a useful tool.

So, if you stack a deck of cards so you can win all your games of solitaire, then, because you aren’t playing someone else, it’s not cheating?

If you use an auto-clicker to play CH for you, is the result legitimate? Can you compare how well you are doing with someone else, and have it mean anything?

It’s simply a matter of being able to get past level 270/280 consistently, whether you are using and idle, active or hybrid build.

Using an autoclicker bypasses that choice: you can be afk, yet reap all the benefits of an active player. In my opinion, that’s a cheat.

Sorry, but I enjoy using my computer for other purposes, thank you. Perhaps you don’t spend as much time working with computers as me, but I’m sure that normal people don’t leave their computer running on an autoclicker 24/7 doing nothing but wasting electricity to fuel a pointless game.

Basically wouldnt you even need to hold you computer logged in if you made a bot that accesses Kongregate and this game from an remote website on the internet and performs autoclicking to emulate you being on your computer…? Its not an encouragement, because I am pretty shure your acount gets deleted if you’d try that… :S

That’s not even possible for this game.

I’m not sure what you are asking about people who play MMOs with high level characters. Is that a rhetorical question? Are you trying to imply something about them? Please elaborate on what you are trying to say about them.

Sorry about that… :S My intent was not to insult anybody, tryed to give my opinion… If I just could take back time… :S :$

No, I’m simply saying I don’t understand your meaning.

Its kinda rhetorical… or atleast having knoledge of the games walkthroughs of some sort. How do you advanse your stats when you have only 45 minutes to 1h to spare in an MMO? Maybe I’m just yealous of others glory, that can be too… I cant play MMOs so often anymore I like to… :S

If it’s “kinda rhetorical” what are you attempting to imply? Or are you trying to say you have no idea what you are talking about?

Originally posted by sword_raven:

For people saying that calculators aren’t cheating, but autoclickers are.

When I played CH calculators was basically autoclickers for me, I view them as cheating more than autoclickers. For me this is a game was about calculating what was best. An autoclicker just clicks for you, if you view sitting down watching a screen for hours and clicking, as some sort of great achievement that needs to be rewarded, and that using something to bypass that is cheating. While you yourself are bypassing the calculations (skill) part of the game, and feel like its not related. That is your problem not mine.

Did I care that other players were using calculators when I played? Nope not one bit. So I don’t really get the idea against autoclickers. Specially not when the game has obvious support for it, a clicker build is simply not very viable without an autoclicker. Idle will beat it every time, simply because of the effort/gain ratio.

The game has no built-in support for auto-clickers.

Clicker Heroes does not have a server, and even if it had on, running a bot on it would mean hacking into it and inserting code, which is probably highly illegal and will get you arrested.

Because I’m suuuuureeeee cops would waste time on someone using a bot in a game so long as they don’t make a profit.

He was responding to someone who’s tactic for running a bot was to run one on the server which would, likely, require hacking into the server which is a computer related crime and falls, so they would probably call the cops. Maybe the FBI would get involved. Who knows. Point is, hacking someone’s server without permission is illegal. Might take a while to catch the person who did simply because they might be in another country.

Which side or you on? First you don’t agree with my post saying I consider it cheating, now you are comparing bot use to hacking.

He isn’t comparing bot use to hacking. He’s comparing running a bot on a server hacking due to how one would accomplish it.

Any game automation via third party software/hardware is a cheat. I’m not saying you cannot use them, I’m simply stating what they are.

Originally posted by Xanthus179:

I happily use one such program. I used to use it for this game as well, until I got to the point where I do far more damage, and earn more money without using it. In fact, when I did use it, it was normally along with using all the powers at once. Doing this, it feels as thought the game gets bogged down, and then you have to deal with the system trying to catch up. It really becomes annoying at that point, waiting for the ability to click on anything.

Now, a game such as Adventure Capitalist, up until yesterday, I believe, you had to click on each upgrade to buy them, but they they just added a “Buy All” button. It is way better, than using a clicker.

As for if we want to define the use of a clicker as “cheating,” then I would say that you could consider it cheating if there was a point to the game. These are idle games. They have no point, other than to keep trying to break that next barrier, hit another level, and so forth. I consider it a utility, just the same way as people use mods for WoW or other MMOs. A utility is there purely to assist as a tool, to help with the tedium. They don’t give you an edge over anyone, and these are certainly nothing to get angry about.

There is a difference between UI mods in WoW and third party software that plays the game for you. One is built into the game with restrictions based on the API Blizzard modifies as needed to limit/expand what the players can do with it and the other isn’t built into the game and plays the game so the person doesn’t have to do anything. Even if you limit yourself to “I only do X with it when I’m off doing something else” doesn’t change what it is.

“They have no point, other than” means they do have a point. Listing points/goals achievable in the game contradicts the claim there is no point to the game. In this game the point is to beat higher and higher zones. If there was no point to the game, at all, why even bother with the game?
