Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / I asked the Devs, as nice as I could, about the 'second raid' and other things.

Wow what a completely entitled request. It’s a FREE GAME. Game developing is a JOB, at least on this scale. The only money they make from Tyrant is people buying warbonds which is happening less and less, so why should they even care about the game anyway? The fact they’ve done ANYTHING at all is generous, especially considering that Apocalypse was released without a warbonds cost, costing only gold and shards, both being incredibly easy to get. They’re done with the game, and they’re giving it a send off, which is more than they needed to do.

Some people only post when $yn is under attack…

Considering what anyone else in this entire community would have said, it was nice as hell.

The first sections was a big, “Yeah, I know about the threats and bullshit you use to avoid answering us. Put that aside for now and give me give minutes of your time.”

The last section was, “I don’t care if it was a lie on purpose, or if it was decided afterward. I just want to know who the guilty party is. You, or Kongregate?”

GS leaves Kong alone for the most part, and Kong lets games run their course. The devs have almost full rights to what happens to the their games. You know damn well $yn pulled the trigger.

You’re basically trying to get $yn to pubicly admit, in a successful cash cow game’s forums, that the whole company is a piece of shit. Good luck with that.

Muting a fellow physicist! For shame!

Anyway, my response, since I know no other method of getting it to you:

“Meh, the sophisticated investment strategies is an interesting way to fill an elective credit. I’ve been investing for quite some time and have yet to see solid evidence for technical analysis outside of day trading. Even the large investment banks and hedge funds have yet to show stronger performance since they began integrating computer market predictors and similar toys.

Anyway, would you care to say what you actually did? I’m currently duel majoring in math and physics with the intent (now at least) to eventually go into quantum chromodynamics, I have no idea how that aligns with your interests/career.

Although, I’ll warn you that I prefer the theoretical. Admittedly, you can’t tell the difference at the highest levels but still. It’s always nice to find someone else in the field :)"

Probably the most useful and hardest to follow advice out there :P We had some disagreements (over “issues” which seem hilarious in hindsight), but credit goes where credit is due, and judging by your dedication to the people you played with I’m sure you could accomplish quite a bit yourself IRL if you haven’t already. Regardless of what you decide to do, best of luck to you, and that goes for the whole Better World/OoD crew as well.

Not where I am, but it’s mainly a theoretical class so that might have something to do with it. Right now we’re still going over quantum mechanics so I don’t know how mathematically focused the course will be yet.

Although, the professor happens to be the Math Department Chair so that might be foreboding…

No, I hung in there for a bit :D. Also that must have sucked, I pulled my fair share of all nighters last semester but I like to hope that was a consequence of poor time management, as opposed to being over my head :D

Nah, I decided I couldn’t cut women out of my life because then I’d probably just live in the physics department and completely forget how to interact with normal people. One of the labs has a nice little area for a sleeping bag, and I bet I could get a mini fridge and a microwave in there too…

The Spring semester just started, and I’m undertaking an even more grievous course load than before – and don’t just take my word for it:

- M -

‘Sophisticated Investment Strategies’ – 9:00 A.M. – 10:15 A.M.
‘Quantum Gravity: Theories and Research’ – 11:00 A.M. – 11:50 A.M.
‘Partial Differential Equations’ – 12:45 P.M. – 1:50 P.M.

- T -

‘Technical Writing’ – 11:00 A.M. – 12:15 A.M.
‘Partial Differential Equations RECITATION’ – 6:00 P.M. – 8:00 P.M.

- W -

‘Sophisticated Investment Strategies’ – 9:00 A.M. – 10:15 A.M.
‘Quantum Gravity: Theories and Research’ – 11:00 A.M. – 11:50 A.M.
‘Partial Differential Equations’ – 12:45 P.M. – 1:50 P.M.
‘Quantum Mechanics Lab’ (coreq for QG:T&R) – 6:30 P.M. – 9:00 P.M.

- R -

‘Technical Writing’ – 11:00 A.M. – 12:15 A.M.

- F -

‘Quantum Gravity: Theories and Research’ – 11:00 A.M. – 11:50 A.M.
‘Partial Differential Equations’ – 12:45 P.M. – 1:50 P.M.

In other words; fuck my life. It’s 3:00 A.M. right now, and I’ve decided to reevaluate exactly where I can devote my time. I’ve come up with a nice strategy so far:

No Games
No Family
No Friends who can’t help me or provide sex
No Life

My new schedule involves nothing but math and women, which is actually rather nice on paper.

For obvious reasons, spending half an hour dumping stam, and then another half an hour playing on the forums, simply isn’t tenable. In accordance, I’ve dumped my stam and energy a final time and left Dragons. I won’t be coming back to Tyrant, nor will I precipitate on the forums anymore.

I’ll miss the fun I had here on the forums, with some exceptions, everyone was generally great. This game took massive amounts of time out of the lives of many, and so it’s closure is a good thing in a way – my current course load reminds me how much could be accomplished with better prioritized time.

Regardless of personal differences, I with the best to all of the Tyrant community, and the best of luck in your future endeavors.

Cheers!

This simpleton logic makes for good demagoguery but fails to account for the fact that such preferences, though obviously inconsequential on their own, are caused by (as opposed to the origin of) ingrained racism in society.

You’re essentially trying to confuse a symptom and a disease.

I didn’t really agree with Shieru or anything, I was just put a silly picture to spice up the thread. Plus, I was being a goof :/ I think the real reason why white women are the standard of beauty is because naturally, they have the lightest complexions possible, and historically white or ‘lightskin’ in people have always been preferred over dark, and this goes back to even before the advent of slavery in ancient civilizations and antiquity to the days of Greece and Rome and Egypt where the highest of the society, the elite ruling class, where stereotypically “whiter” due to having privileged lives and staying inside perserving their high-born complexion while the “darker” people where the middle class ones who had to slave away in the most intense sun exposure and brutal tasks of building up the civilizations to what they would be famously known as, which in turn made them darker in comparison and visibly marked them for their lower social class rank, and therefore their perceived inferior beauty.

Literally, #TeamLightskin wins like everytime. Even a rapper like Drake knows what it is.

In plebeian speak, this means that one legacy of racism is that white women are seen as more attractive. If white women are seen as a standard of beauty, it would follow that men of all races would go after them, no?

Let’s try to read the very first paragraph of the OP carefully. I know reading can be hard for some so we’ll go slowly.

In case you didn’t read the OP, the point is to correct the most “regressive position,” you’re trying to hand wave that fact by implying I just brought it up as a poor redherring attempt.

And here, you’re just making an appeal to authority by trying to imply my plan’s foundational workings are ineffective because the SCOTUS is questioning whether a vaguely conceptually similar strategy is still effective in U.S. college applications. False comparison.

I would pose the question about the ethics of disadvantageous discrimination.

You seem to like complaining about the archetype of the proposed solution, but I didn’t see you even acknowledge the problem before you decided to take offense to the proposal.

First of all, exactly where does the concept of reversing cultural beauty standards originally engineered by white supremacy qualify under “obvious human rights violations?”

Originally posted by retsamerol:

I’m sure someone else can articulate an argument about why targeting a historically disadvantaged group for systemic discrimination is a bad plan.

Oh poor white women. White women are paid more an average than black or Hispanic men1, and of course white standards of beauty are so ingrained in society that they even spill over in minority communities, in the form of women with lighter skin tones being viewed as more attractive in those communities. Really, when was the last time you saw a perfume line or high end clothing advertised by a minority model? But I suppose someone has to cry for white women.

Originally posted by retsamerol:

I bet I can discount the entire plan by focusing on one part of it’s implementation, that being that Lord Eon’s intended classification system has an obvious flaw if you just stare at it long enough…

You may have noticed (or not) that the second to last paragraph of the OP focused on potential mixed race individuals (Yes, everyone is mixed race 100+ generations ago, but even your 1/16 example wouldn’t hold for relatively static populations, such as those in Europe), and, lo and behold, I explicitly stated falling back on accepted phenotypic features which characterize the popular definition of “white” women.
