Claycat DOOM is amazing.

Halls/doors looked so cheap, it reminded me of MST3K, in a cool way...

Yeah can't wait for it hey. There's going to be so much content available for it. Surprised you didn't know about it though, it was part of their reveal back during last years E3.

I'd not been following it very closely.

Honestly, that has me semi interested in the game now, and I'd previously wrote it off...

I picked up the new Doom and I'm actually really looking forward to it - both singleplayer and the snapmap thing. No intention of playing multiplayer and I figure it couldn't be any worse than Doom 3, right?

I don't care about multi either, but whats the snapmap?

edit: Reading about it now - that's like the first thing about this new doom that sounds interesting!

edit again: Ok, that's fucking awesome!

I'm sorry to be an ass, but you've gone off the deep end with your blizzard crusade.

No need to apologize.

With all due respect I know what you're trying to do. You're trying to lock me down to specifics. As I've already stated I don't know what the specific numbers are. All I can do is provide an analysis of WHY Blizzard will lose money, not HOW much they will lose. I based my statement on all relevant information I've read and heard. It really boils down to cause and effect. The Cause: Blizzard shut down Nostalrius. The Effect: A backlash stunting Blizzard's financials. That's a bona fide fact. As far as HOW MUCH Blizzard will lose, we'll wait and see.

I think its unfair to label my statements as "wild speculation" since I've repeatedly stated where the source of my information came from. Wild speculation is typically based on nothing.

Anyhow, I hope we're still cool.

I'ma let it go, because my last post (actually 2) made me feel like an asshole.

But I look forward to taunting your mercilessly in the months and years to come.

- We know, for a fact, Blizzard shut down Nostalrius at the very beginning of Q2; the negative effect is going to ripple throughout the entire quarter.

How big? Go ahead and make a crazy guess?

- We know, for a fact, Blizzard angered a sizable number of people.

Numbers?

- We know, for a fact, people have cancelled their WOW subscriptions.

Numbers?

- We know, for a fact, people have cancelled their Overwatch and Legion preorders.

Numbers?

- We know, for a fact, people have stopped buying Blizzard's other games.

Numbers?

- We know, for a fact, people have stopped buying DLCs for HOTS and Hearthstone.

Numbers?

- Many have said they will not see the Warcraft film (I'm not sure if this will happen, so I'm classifying it as a variable).

Numbers?

ALL of this is either going to or has hit Blizzard like a tidal wave.

When exactly? And how much?

Not only is their PR being damaged they are also sustaining financial damage as well.

How much?

These are also facts based on current and past indicators.

This is your opinion, based on talking to people on the internet, the last bastion of truth, where lies and exaggerations never occur.


I believe I've presented my case very rationally. If you still think I'm being delusional then you're entitled to your opinion.

You've presented your opinion with nothing to back it up.


As far as the WOW shutting down in 5 years, again I made this prediction based on an analysis of several factors. I'm not going to go into the details of what they are but suffice it to say if Blizzard doesn't bring vanilla back WOW's shelf is going to drop to 5 years.

No, you said:

WOW is going to fold in about 5 years.

And the reason you won't be going into details is all you have is wild speculation.

I'm sorry to be an ass, but you've gone off the deep end with your blizzard crusade.

It's an absolute certainty that Blizzard's numbers are going to be drastically lower at the end of Q2.

Still waiting on a number.

Also, you're delusional.

I've analyzed the situation and made a deduction based on the available evidence. The evidence suggests the amount of backlash against Blizzard is going to have negative effect on their Q2 profits. As far as specific numbers go I cannot provide this because I don't know; realistically no one knows, not even Blizzard. "Drastically lower" was language specifically chosen for this reason.

Let's look at the definition of two words.

delusion - an idiosyncratic belief or impression that is firmly maintained despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality or rational argument, typically a symptom of mental disorder.

analysis - detailed examination of the elements or structure of something, typically as a basis for discussion or interpretation.

So in conclusion an analysis can never be delusional when it based on facts. You're been a reasonable person nin. What gives?

You're spinning a pie in the sky narrative with nothing to back it up other than "trust me on this".

Last week, you announced the most popular mmo in the history of gaming would be shut down in 5 years, again, with nothing but "trust me,
I know stuff".

That's delusion. Your are letting your emotions cloud your judgement, and making wacky claims with no proof.

I'll check it out tonight when I get home from work.
I have the beta installed but didn't really screw around with custom games, only did a match vs Ai and online against human players.

Please keep us posted - if it has full bot support, I might check it out.

Thanks!

I just logged in and checked and you do not get xp for custom games, full of bots or full of humans. You only get xp for:

1) "Play vs AI" which a team full of random humans against a bot team of either easy, medium, of high skill bots.
2) The "weekly brawl" mode, which is a humans against humans match featuring various rule changes. (for example, today's rule is that every time you respawn you are a different hero)
3) Quick Play, which is what most would call "normal mode". Humans vs humans, normal rules and modes.

Honestly, I am not a big fan of random online multiplayer, just in general. I like MMOs that allow for single player leveling and foster strong guild populations where I get to pick who I have my online experience with. I like shooters that allow me to pick who I am playing with. Needless to say, the online gaming revolution has left me more than a bit disappointed. All of that said, "Play vs AI" has been a blast for me as I learn the various ins and outs of the game and the rather large variety of characters. Long term, I will either get bored of the game or I will take what I have learned and go play against teams of people....but in the meantime I feel like even in the beta I am getting my moneys worth out of the Play vs AI mode.

Keep in mind, I am of the opinion that if I play a 50-60 dollar game for a couple hours a day, on and off, for a week or two....I got my moneys worth out of it. I love games like Skyrim where 300+ hours is considered a minimum, but video games are one of the few forms of entertainment I enjoy where 50-60 bucks will keep me occupied for longer than one evening. That's kind of how I view things just in general with this hobby, so if you have a different approach keep that in mind when I say things like "I got my moneys worth". With this particular game, I find myself liking it much more than I thought I would given my distaste for most modern shooters. Same goes for Paragon, a game from a genre that I historically dislike greatly. Sometimes video games just click with a person and it can be hard to put a finger on why that is.

Well, thanks anyway...

Can you run a full match with just one human player and the remainder bots on the human player's team and the opposition team?

Thanks!
Not as far as I know.

Yes you can, use the custom game setup.

Reaaaaly...now I'm semi tempted...are the bots decent?

I hate to post one of those "is this game still active" questions, but is it still one of the most limiting F2P games? At least with GW2 and ESO you get full access. I probably would have spent more time playing if it hadn't had origin and the worst F2P limitations I've ever seen in a mmog, at least in the last 6 or so years.

As for ESO, waiting on the latest patch to prep for Dark Brotherhood, to finish downloading. Race

hmmmmmm
No idea what your talking about, does that make you stupid or a troll?

Hard to tell, isn't it?
