Mobile device use in the air not taking off

Until they provide cell service, internet, and somewhere to plug in your phone on the plane... why would it "take off"?

The "last bastion of reading material" line was just silly, as if paper is required for reading things.

does a MOBA exist where the playerbase isn't full of assholes?

Not that I know of. The problem is people...obviously... and the limited team size.

The less people there are on your team, the more of a chance each one of them can ruin/lose the game for everyone else. I think the reason why games like TF2 don't seem to have that toxicity (of our city, of our ciiiiityyyyy) is because the actions and impact of individuals isn't as obvious.

I'd play the shit out of DOTA 2 if there was no "denying". For some reason that's a breaking point for me. Maybe I'm old, but it makes the game feel more like work than play. It's not as if it was a game mechanic in the original DOTA by design.

Yes, it's everyone else. Not you. You're perfect.

I bet the reason you can't point to your "constructive forum posts" is because they were deleted when you were banned from the forums.

Feel free to prove me wrong...

That many people really play Smite?!

I thought it was a great change of pace for the MOBA genre, but it had the same toxic community problems the others suffer from (in a BETA, who is a powergaming dickhead in a BETA?!).

Another large problem is the serving size suggestions on the side of pet food bags/cans/etc. They all recommend entirely too much per serving for almost any pet. If you follow them you will have a fat pet. Lots of good research has already been done about how much of different types of food (wet/dry) they actually need per day. In some cases you should onyl be giving them half of what is suggested, which is just insane.

You are the worst kind of troll Axis. Just answer his question and stop being a smug little bitch.

It'd be pretty easy to just point to your forum posts and stop acting like a child. Your refusal only makes it more likely that you are full of shit and that you act like this because you have little to say.

edit: and I wasn't trying to "confirm your points" at all. I said that you shouldn't be complaining about or be surprised by them, because this company has never released anything any different in the past.

Yes I did just compare them, because they are essentially the same thing. Pools (group play in the world cup) are like 3-game seasons. There is no difference in the way they are scored.

It's almost exactly like hockey in fact. Whoever has the most points in each group makes the "playoffs" (the brackets in the world cup).

But everyone loves to be all HERPEDERP SOCCER IS DUMB...

So you are providing no reason for anyone to believe... anything you just said? Thank you for clearing that up. All you had to do was elaborate on your points a little, instead you have to act like a child.

Anyone who has played any of their other games should be familiar with both bad UI and the lack of US servers. I've never seen any complaints about the gameplay. It's a shame that the marketing couldn't have been handled better. At this point I'd say going F2P is the only way they could inflate the US server population enough to matter.

The olympics are pretty specialized events, dominated by countries with the proper training facilities (read: money... or for the winter olympics I suppose locale matters). It's not simply population.

The only reason China competes well in the Olympics is because they physically abuse children in bootcamp-like facilities. The rest of the children that aren't sons and daughters of great athletes (or from already rich families) are forced to spend their free time in study rather than sports or other hobbies. This is why they are generally terrible and what we consider "regular" sports (and why they don't even export many other athletes in general).

There is no professional soccer league in China, so the path from their super-corrupt amatuer leagues to the national stage simply doesn't exist. This is a similar limitation that the US is facing with a majority of their talent pool playing in MLS and not better leagues.

There is little excuse for teams like England, Spain, Portugal and Italy to be eliminated from the World Cup... regardless of their population. They are host to the most competitive leagues in the world for the sport and none of them even have a close second "national sport". The US did very well to outlast these teams considering the gap in competition between US professional soccer and UEFA et al. Making the jump from MLS is extremely difficult for players. The only thing all of that population is doing producing really mediocre soccer players.

You make such well thought out posts and are so agreeable when people ask for clarification or have different opinions... It's a complete mystery why they weren't more receptive to your ideas.

I didn't play the first one... but... was the point of that game not to escape the island?

Also, can you escape a place you went on purpose?

There is nothing inherently wrong with keeping track of how much you spend on gaming vs how much enjoyment/play time you are getting out of that money. I don't care how much I enjoy a game with a subscription fee, it basically has to be the only game i'm going to play or it's not worth my limited play time.

Spending $150 on a collectors edition... yeah... there's something wrong with that. :p

That's because it doesn't make any sense, and these people don't seem to understand even the basics of how sports work.

As if a baseball/football/hockey/basketball team has never clinched their playoff birth the same day they lost a game.

The "OMG they lost and moved on" people are literally advertising their own stupidity.

I don't think the loss was disgraceful... because they should have lost by about 7 or 8 goals. They were extremely lucky to only give up goals in extra time... and it took Howard having the greatest world cup performance for a keeper ever to even make extra time possible. They struggled vs deep crosses in every match, and probably should have lost to ghana too.

I don't understand how this is much of a "step forward" for american soccer at all. If they make it back next time, it will either be with an old Howard, or without him... and he's really the only world class player on that roster.

You can see it plain as day on the field, every team they play internationally is bigger stronger and faster than the US players. The US is going to be an also-ran until there is a large cultural shift that involves US Soccer becoming popular and player pay increasing as to retain the interest of better athletes.

No, the "AI" will never stop doing that because it's not AI. They drive like slot cars, and if you are in their line you are going to be hit no matter what difficulty you play. Better off just playing the game online as trying to beat the AI will make you form bad racing habits.

Incredible to me that this game apparently still suffers from the same save game corruption problems that GRiD 2 did.

Of course they just set a record for concurrent users online... tons of people just created extra free accounts to "game" your poorly designed summer event.

Relationship quest-lines in general to me are just really off-putting in RPG's. They don't add squat to the experience, you aren't creating any sort of meaningful, long lasting relationships. They are essentially just a gateway to an achievement or ridiculously comical "sex scene" to appease some teenagers, and little more than that. Then everyone goes about their business like nothing ever happened or changed in the game-world.

When the companions and "romance" become more than just gimmicks to burn some game-time... maybe I'll care if a character is bi or gay or straight. Until then this is just a stunt to win back some fans they've disenfranchised with... stunts like this they failed to deliver on in the past.

Maybe I'm just really bad at role-playing because I don't get into these paper-thin "romances".

note: I didn't realize this had come out as part of a series of character backstory releases, and thought that it was just this one companion that was "announced", and it seemed a little contrived like they were using it as a selling-point. So it's probably not totally damning of the game as I originally implied, but when the number 1 complaint about the last game was "game-play" and we have yet to hear a single word about how it has been improved or changed... but we hear about this... it doesn't leave a good taste in my mouth (phrasing?).

Being politically correct? The sexuality of the characters was obviously a major breaking point for this franchise. What's really going on here is that Bioware got tons of shit for promising "same-sex" relationships in TOR, and then failed to deliver on it.

... but... Now that there is a "legitimately gay" character we can end the Darkspawn once and for all!
