  • I dunno, maybe it's just personal experience. I don't see PVP any different then sports - you have two teams of people playing against each other of various sizes, with various agreed upon goals. Sometimes it's like basketball, sometimes it's like hockey, and sometimes it's just boxing (two men enter, both men leave with…
  • It isn't, and that's been my entire point - I've stated numerous times that the appropriate logic and rationale is the same for PVE and PVP, you keep making statements to the contrary. I've stated numerous times that it's the moderator's job to handle it, and you continuely and actively questioned that. Here's an example:…
  • Your problem here is thinking that the PVP community is somehow some magically tight, cohesive group - it isn't. It's no different then the PVE community, and is just as fractured, splintered, and made up of cliques and associations. It has it's loners and it's drifters, the same as PVE. Because outside of a different…
  • ...Well, I had planned on sleeping tonight. So much for that. ;_; Thanks a lot, Smacky.
  • I think we're talking over each other's heads here (ignoring your awful analogy) - I'm speaking about PVP in general, and PVP communities in general, with added anecdotes about my experiences as a PVP player (in games where the PVP is actually supported). You seem to be specifically talking about PVP here, which is…
  • Well, we are on page 14. As thread length increase, chance for derail increases, as does the chance things get real weird. Think we've ramped the shark there by this point, at least.
  • Humans are generally coded to not think about things that go well, but dwell on things that go poorly to better learn from those situations (you don't need to learn anything from a success, generally, though there are still things you can if you choose to do so). There's also perception bias - your mind filters out things…
  • Still not a leotard! Stop ruining my fantasy moment. D: (DISCLAIMER: This post entirely facetious.)
  • I... Robin doesn't have powers. Unless you're suggesting he wear a gymnast's leotard. ...in which case, I may be able to support this.
  • You can't expect a community to police itself - it can happen, but it's not something you should count on happening. What's the more likely scenario is encouraging people to actively report the problem individuals and applying appropriate measures (time bans and for people that are habitual offenders, possibly account bans…
  • Neither situation is ideal, frankly, but of the two, I'd rather them at least attempt to show they care enough to try and fix bugs then not. Neglect is bad policy. At least screwing up implies a little caring.
  • I generally try to be pretty forgiving about stuff, even if it bothers me. If asked, I'll make a point to say what my issue is and explain it in exhaustive detail (because I'm a verbose person, and I like trying to get across as much of my viewpoint as possible). However, if I'm just passing someone in-game and I see…
  • Am I willing to have a stall on content for the Foundry? Sure - I'm not entirely certain I'd notice the loss given the glacial state of things at the moment. Updates in general? I think that depends on who exactly they need/can spare to work on the project. I'd like bug-fixes and the like to have at least some attention…
  • I think you're taking this thread a bit more seriously then intended. I personally find the way (focus on that word) you're voicing your complaints a bit more aggressive in intent then most (some? I'll re-read things, but I'm pretty sure 'most' qualifies) of the posts in this thread (that aren't similarly complaining about…
  • The issue I have with this is one of ideology - I love doing PVP when the mechanics are great (Guild Wars 1/2, MOBAs, some FPS games; This means an active and fair balance team is the biggest asset - if Warhammer Online had a solid balance team that didn't play favorites, it would have gone on the list). I love dealing…
  • My all-time, biggest peeve is the default hero costume color theme and bits. The blue-yellow abomination that is the first thing people get to modify. Seeing it repeated unmodified, or just those colors, really makes me a little sad. Unless the costume makes those colors work for it, but so few of them rarely do. It's like…
  • So since it's come up a bit, I think it's important to point out a topic I brought up earlier but didn't really put a lot of details into mentioning - cohesion of theme. This is a really big, important thing that if you're designing something, you should dedicate time to thinking about. The biggest part of that is…
  • That's fine. I make an effort to be blunt and direct, and not everyone takes that very well. I also generally don't feel the need to pull punches or sugar-coat when I critique someone with the intent of helping. Do you have anything more topic-relevant, though? Because that's not really adding anything to the discussion or…
  • ಠ_ಠ My god, what have I done.
  • Oh, no, I've seen bad. I've been a part of bad. Bad is trying to objectively debate who's sci-fi universe could beat who else's, and dealing with the crushing tide of fans and the fact that for some fanbases (Star Trek and Star Wars, in particular), there exists contradicting, confusing, and blatantly inaccurate and…
  • THAT's the one I mean! I am right there with you - I use the heck out of that one.
  • That's not really what I'm suggesting at all. For example, I don't like kimchee either. However, I tend to express my dislike in more respectful fashions. Mostly, because I stop and think about why I don't like it. It's generally overspiced and it's overall presentation isn't something I'm fond of. Because I have an…
  • Split Tights (Wrinkled) I think it is. That, and the 'emo' hair style. Well, and the Motorcycle/Harajuku boots and belt. Pretty diverse on everything else, though.
  • I'm not taking anything personal in particular (I never let anything bother me if I can help it - if it does bother me, I just don't post and go do something more worth my time). I'm just noticing a bad trend that I really don't think provides anything constructive or necessary to the discussion, at all, and doing my best…
  • I still had mine after a year, and some of THOSE I haven't played since Launch or thereabouts. So I'm erring on the side of caution and saying 'probably not, no'.
  • Heeey. Some of us like nerdy arguments and debates. :/ I find it infinitely fascinating!
  • I really hope we can discuss this topic somewhat more civilly, and without resulting to blatant stereotyping and generalization (especially if we can't use them without throwing around hatemongering in the same breath). So far that's not the turn things are taking, but maybe it should be. It's fine to agree to disagree…
  • Why would you appeal? It seems like a pretty cut/dry case (even if you gave up on the intent of it later). And as Nepht said, it's just a 12hr ban - take the day to relax for a bit. I recommend a stroll, or browsing the youtubes as the kids these days do.
  • I suppose I should be less of a wad (I dunno, I felt I could have worded my critique posts kinder; Doesn't change the sentiments, though!), and answer the idea of the OP. What kind of Superhero MMO would Foxy create? Oh, dear reader, there is not enough space here for me to lay down the monolithic sprawl of my thoughts on…
  • I can respect that, honestly. Dilution of theme is something I brought up, after all. S'always interesting to see people's reasoning for things, though, so sometimes I can't really help myself from asking contentious questions (even if it's not my intent to cause trouble, some stuff you just can't really ask without people…
  • :( I don't get what's wrong with furries and/or anime peeps, personally... (DISCLAIMER: There's a good chance I'm just being facetious, unless we can pretend to discuss it in a civil fashion and it goes somewhere interesting and/or amusing.)
  • That only really proves my point. It's worth mentioning that: 1) It took what, a year or two to get Villains introduced in the first place? It was also billed and introduced as a completely different game, and the content developed was mostly just a thin reskin. Add in to the fact that the greater portion of the game was…
  • Demonstrably false - most of the complaints and issues I mentioned were born out of my observances from the forum and in-game communities of CoH/V, as well as other games. It most emphatically did not handle the divide well at all, and especially near the tail end most of the content was Hero-focused with the occasional…
  • It seems like your powers system would be a big coding nightmare, and have a very steep learning curve/knowledge barrier issue. That does quite a bit to damage your ability to keep getting new players, and while it sounds nice on paper, there's a lot of inherent balance issues with a system like that and it heavily…
  • I think there's merit for additional tags for cross-game chat. Also have to second the idea that it may get more traction on the other game forums (but having a post here is helpful, as well).
  • Not exactly - I will admit that it's a harder one, but it depends on what form they're taking. If we're assuming styles similar to the katar, you could focus on non-lethal areas (jabbing to extremities, or making use of the slashing aspects to disarm similarly to how one would use a knife). Conversely, things like the bagh…
  • Sheesh, go out for an evening with the girl and a fun conversation explodes into being. I think, now that I can see more of the argument, I can agree with your general misgivings, Smacky. At least enough to respect the difference in opinion, as it's generally not a problem I run into (I suppose growing up more with the…
  • Gotta admit, that always bugged the crap out of me with heroes like Bushido and the like. Though the grand majority of them (up until the Rise of the 90's Action Hero) would use the sword in non-lethal ways to disarm or subdue opponents instead. I still have problems realisitcally reconciling the super-strength thing,…
  • Better for the villain health firm I represent. Hope your insurance is paid up, buddy, you're about to pay a deductible! ಠ_ಠ
  • I'm nobody important, and I approve this message. ob Which also means I thereby similarly approve the OP in it's full format. Is that proper grammer? I don't, nor do I care! Paid for by absolutely nobody, because if I could get paid for this kind of thing, I'd be rolling in money.
  • Single-target it's fine (as other people have mentioned). Thankfully, there's plenty of AoE options to shore up it's one (glaring, horrific, annoying) weakness in the AoE department (Shuriken Storm or Inexorable Tides or Boomerangs etc.). It was at one point up for being fully reviewed, but last I checked they decided to…
  • :| Figures they do Lemurian stuff while I'm away. A tournament, though... I'll have to see if I can't get the game running on my current potato (I got STO running, I don't see how this will be that much harder) and get back into things once this ridiculous heat wave passes.
  • I don't really care as long as it doesn't become mandatory. I know way more peeps on Steam than I do on PWE games (though it would give me an excuse to try more stuff when bored). If it's not mandatory, though, it doesn't really affect me all that much, and thus it's hard to work up any specific feeling one way or another.…
  • ...I was going to check in on how you guys were doing, and I see it's mostly business as usual. Absolutely crazy. Carry on, then. o7
  • ...am I the only one that chuckled at 'Flew plane into water, crashed'? I'm a terrible person. I'm sorry. Hopefully some of the bigger bugs get addressed, I'll try and catch a moment or two to help test stuff. Seems interesting so far though.
  • Look forward to seeing what GMC is planning, and while I find the dropping of the full-review thing somewhat disappointing, the fact that they're going to try and do more pointed, on-demand reviews probably makes more sense in the long run. Same with new power additions, really. EDIT: Also, seriously, if you guys take…
  • (╯'□')╯︵ ┻━┻ Gosh darnit, Finn.
  • Can I still point out it's silly to complain about something they've offered consistently? :( Yanno, ironically.
  • Hah. One of my gaming lodge buddies did that, specifically to annoy people. Then Portal 2 came out, and he switched it to Space Core. After some percussive persuasion, he switched to the Metal Gear Stealth Notificiation instead.
  • I've got two. ._. EDIT: Of the Mil-City keys, anyway. Thus, they should totally do this kind of thing. Because, I'm not biased at all. Nope. :3
