Surprised mods haven’t locked and censored this yet, exposing cheaters is considered harassment.

(got changed back 1? 2? days later. damn killjoys)

The admins’ excuse for horrid too, as if anyone actually uses those tags. They never even bothered to justify correcting the star rating.

Advertising for a TU clan on WMT tyrants is pretty serious treachery. Though I suppose we shouldn’t expect any less from someone who doesn’t even know Jose’s alts.

Because she/he doesn’t have you in friend list.

Probably would be a better reason than whatever they gave

Yet even when every single pack save Enclave and Standard were warbond only it still didn’t cost over $500 to get your first legendary/vindicator from warbond boxes.

It’s a cash grab,nothing more.
That is TU’s ONLY purpose, and as soon as the devs are finished milking you morons it will suffer the exact same fate Tyrant is right now.

It is IMPOSSIBLE for a game like TU to last the 10 years the devs have said they are hoping it will.

I am also doubting that devs will increase the amount of cards awarded per pack until perhaps a long distant future pack that will also be warbond only and cost at the very least twice the amount the current most expensive box will cost.

And people will still pay for it.

You talk so much shit about TU cause u know its better than WMT

U just hate that TU killed your favorite game

0/10 fail troll fails

lol to be honest I doubt the former BW players are motivated enough to cheat anymore, considering the game is dead and all

Wow this is exciting how it all comes back to my post before. It all depends on the drive of the actual player. When theres 15, 25, 45 of these players then that is a very competitive faction to have fun for endgame enjoyment. Like i said earlier, its the drive to do it Lich, its quite obvious you and your faction dont care about that part so thats why i marked you in the weak factor of competition aka hippie. As a side note, the gil is a terrible example to prove your point.

Then, honestly, what’s the point of this thread?

Essentially you’re saying that it comes down to individual volition, and isn’t necessarily the best choice for everyone. So why do we have a thread telling people to do it?

Most of the demographic you mentioned are what you would call frat boys, though :(

do women even exist outside of your harem?

Ever seen the statistics for the Ivy League in terms of gender?

Trying to be witty is hardly a substitute for actually knowing wtf you’re saying.

I actually think it has more to do with inequality (well, laziness factors into that a bit) than anything else. If you go to the finest prep schools and colleges, you’ll find a more than fair share of upper-middle class kids taking their mandarin with sweet delight.

The rest seem to be content with China bashing and stereotypes coz so easy.

Not so. As someone exposed to more than my taste of such academia, the students who attend such schools are quite the opposite. Coming from homes of privilege, and overwhelmingly white and male, the ignorance – classy ignorance, mind you, the thing called entitlement – permeates these rich young reactionaries.

Any globalization skills they have are for a (potential) business background, and not because they actually understand/care to understand anything about the cultures and groups in question.

The problem is that in order to successfully understand what is going around you when the world’s hegemons change will require a much deeper understand of the social factors in those countries. Speaking a language with a piss-poor Western accent and knowing some market trends will do very little.

Attempting to have a conversation with them quickly reveals how insulated their viewpoints actually are.

Eonian first off, quantity is not always the same as quality. You have people creating amazing things here in their basements that revolutionize the world. Second, i was not simply refering to electronics, I was referring to biological engineering, biochemical, medical advances, etc.

But most of these advances – and the potential for them – is wasted by the nature of a developed market. Our advances in medicine mainly go toward the late life care industry, which profits via the amassed wealth of the older generations that their families are willing to spend in keeping them alive. While I’m not making any ethical statements, those advancements stand in oppositions to the constant economic focus of Asia.

And in markets, your opening statement is wrong – quantity beats quality. Why does China alone own so much U.S. debt in the first place? Their products, while poorly made, are cheap – and these products do far better than more expensive, if better, domestic products.

The bottom line is that the West, try as it might, cannot hold off the critical mass of an economic pole shift for much longer.

Eonian, I believe the world is definitely going to change especially with how fast China, other Eastern countries are growing. HOWEVER, i think one aspect you are forgetting is just how many technological innovations come out of North America. Additionally China is rapidly industrializing, but they are starting to hit snags that will have to be addressed soon.

I was referring mainly to to the global economy. However, keep in mind that economic collapse will preclude venture capital for any innovative endeavors.

Also, East Asia has a much higher level of technological immersion, and India alone produces most of the world’s new graduates in computing and similar fields. I don’t see how you think North America has a competitive technological edge in terms of quantity.

About that last line, Eurocentric hubris. I don’t think it’s so much that, but more of Anglo-Saxon bias towards English which I guess you could interpret as Eurocentrism and nothing else because most of the people can only be bothered to learn English as the base language. Even other European languages/cultures that they descend from, they can’t be bothered to learn them so it’s not surprising they aren’t willing to learn Eastern languages/cultures. Most people in the West seem to think European culture is all that really matters and the rest of the world is irrelevant, but many times in history they have been outdone by their Asian counterparts who have excelled lightyears past them in technology and innovation at times when Europe was just a dense division of kingdoms, constant war, barbaric conquest, and miserable slavery. Asia has a culture driven on discipline and success that Europe, although talented, just doesn’t have on the same level.

I don’t see what you’re trying to say? Westerners don’t learn East Asian history because they’re lazy? I was referring to the fact that the governments of the West refuse to admit the changing roles of Europe and America, and thus continue to push Eurocentric histories and languages as required classes. I don’t see how that isn’t arrogance, unless you try and say it’s more of a state of denial.

East Asian cultures developed along more disciplined lines due to numerous factors, however this is not exactly an advantage. Unless the government carefully directs all areas of progress, the system is in shambles because many people require some sort of direction.
