I would say Elite's case of other players around you, as you fly/play, trumps blizzards need of an auction house.

I didn't even realize it was multiplayer (what I thought was mp only) until last week. I need to read up on the game. How's the PvP work? Is it 100% voluntary or is it like EVE where you are at risk everywhere, just more risk in certain places (can I be suicide-ganked in a safe area)?

Finished the first wing. Saw nothing that would make me want to buy the next 3 wings. I only did the very first set of three, though, not the challenge stuff. Anyone know if the cards are worth it for the harder fights?

Online Singleplayer? ~.~

Kinda like D3, only with praise this time because it's not Blizzard. I plan on getting this when the price drops. I'm very tempted, but $75 is a bit high still.

I'm tempted to sub for a month and have a look. Anyone still playing? How's the bot problem these days? It was horrible when I quit, and is one of the main reasons I left. Can you still find a dozen bots standing around the dungeon bosses?

"Ok guys, what's the latest deets on the drama? 10/10, would squat again."

What does this mean? Some of the words are English, but I don't understand their arrangement. I feel so old.

Anyway - DOS, I still use it all the time (or a hybrid of it) as it is THE BEST trouble shooting tool in the biz.

I call Command Prompt DOS all the time. My coworker (doesn't use it much) chews me out. It'll always be DOS to me.

I'm treating it like Skyrim. Sure, I've got a dozen quests, but since I don't know wtf I'm looking for, I'll just go do something else. Also, F5 every 30 seconds. F5 EVERYTHING. Because if there's one thing they love to do, is kill you with an explosion that has no indication it's coming. Oh look, a lovely flower in this meadow and *BOOM* everyone is dead.

Haven't crafted at all. 20k gold and dunno what to do with it. Maybe buy more resurrection scrolls. I need lots of those.

I just don't get 'e-sports'. Why not just play games yourself?

Because I suck and it's fun to watch someone who not only knows what they're doing, but is considered the best in the world at said game. Pretty sure you can "take over" the Dota 2 game these days too (I haven't tried it). I can see how me subbing for someone would destroy their chances at winning.

Can you finally use a mouse?

Yes, Stonesense lets you use the mouse too. I've not tried it, so dunno how good it is. It's most likely going to break with the update too, so you'll have to wait for it to be fixed (unless they've got access to a preview copy and fixed it already).

Also, is the military system still broken? I'd like to actually fight with my dwarves instead of using traps/bridge mechanics all the time.

I recall they were supposedly fixed in the previous version, but I could never get it to work the way I expected it to. I haven't played in a year, though. I plan on playing in a month or so once bug fixing has started.

I enjoyed this game (the PvE), so I'm sad to see it go. Haven't played in a long time though. Was kind of a bitch to get it to load up right what with GfWL. I was going to play yesterday one last time, but couldn't get it to run in the 2 minutes I was interested. Wish they'd convert it over to Steamworks and keep it running using a TF2 model (hats for everyone!).

I don't mind the game, but can't see spending $15 a month on it. Wish they had gone the GW2 direction so I could login in bursts here and there every few weeks.

As for Occupy Google, really? There are a lot of worse companies to protest out there.

But Google is only a short 10 minute drive. Everything else required planning.

Really hope they don't force you to build shit in specific areas. I want a return to Settlers 2 style building. Even their online version lets you place buildings where you want.

News Comments > Dwarf Fortress Patch Next Month
12. Re: Dwarf Fortress Patch Next Month Jun 20, 2014, 16:51 Frijoles
 
Remember, traps are you friend. I typically wall my base in and then build a drawbridge to get out. Below the drawbridge is a 15+ level drop, and I have ton of traps on my base side of the bridge. When goblins attack, I let them get to the bridge, then drop it. By the time it drops, it's full of goblins. They all fall to their deaths. Then I flood the room and drown any that are still alive. It's awesome.

Unless the heavy bastards break my bridge. Then I rage as I'm getting murdered.

Sounds like my normal strategy of building a huge fucking wall all the way around the outside of my base (about 75% of the outside area) won't work anymore. I may have to actually train some fighters. Or just live underground 100%.

Looking forward to the update + 1 or 2 months for extra bug fixes.

If Battlestar Galactica had been "realistic" the Cylons would have completely pwned them in every engagement, because robots have vastly higher G force resistance and thus could out-maneuver any human vessel by several factors.

They did (pwned them)! Also, figure if they can control gravity on their ships, maybe they can lower the G force in the smaller ships. I need to watch that show again.

As much as I can appreciate them going for realism-ish controls, I couldn't fly worth a damn. Hope it can be changed in single-player at least. Or maybe I'll just be Crew Member #5 on board the big ships.
