Re: General forum game discussion
Can't say I'm not bummed at the result.

But yeah, thanks for running this. I hope you've learned a lot about how to improve the next game's experience.
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

There were ups and downs, but overall it was a pleasure. Looking forward to the main game. :nod:

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

GG, everyone



A big round of applause and "not to be underestimated" thanks to our host and organizer, Spoon.

First off you did a great thing of putting this together, even if the results were not always to your liking. But then again "do, learn, do better" and this game was not just done but well done in the great scheme of things.

And I think the Test Game showed the weaknesses of the rule-seet (order economony in tactical; deployment into tactical; accessibility concerns) but also it's strengths (Diplomacy made for a very entertaining early game, Strategic warfare was awesome compared to the chore of Tactical). Look foward to see what comes of it and to see it in action on an expanded scale.

Once more, thank you, Spoon. You did good.

Gotta spend money to make mone- errr points.
Actually our "economy" in terms of income is tied 2nd/3rd with the SF. We just didn't stockpile at the end.



Cheers! Thanks for the testgame!

Re: General forum game discussion
damn, SF came out at a last, there tough, we had some intern problems as well as the whole coalition thing hampering us down in the start :D

Research points, go home - you're drunk.

I would be on for another round actually.
