Didn't they sell maps as DLC for the first game before they gave it all away? If so there is no surer way to fracture a community.

Considering the player numbers on PC for this that made zero difference, as there was no community left they could fracture. The game is deader than dead and that it already wast a mere month after release. Biggest fail buy I ever did when it comes to MP shooters.

And the problem wasn't so much the gameplay, which was fine, the problem was the god awful engine and netcode/hosting system.

Hearts of Stone was a great expansion and I'm loving Blood and Wine. I kinda wish they had made Toussaint the main game now.
agree with you

If nothing else, it bothers me there isn't more stuff we can do with the vineyard.

Jesus Christ, dude, chill the fuck down. 95% of the people working for Gawker are just people who reports on news and write articles in their given field. Jalopnik employs some of the best car writers in the business. What do they have to do with that piece of shit AJ Daulerio??

You mean "decent writers" like those on Gizmodo?

http://gizmodo.com/jill-bahring-i-was-not-assaulted-by-jacob-appelbaum-1781684838

Compare what they quote with the original statement (something the so called journalist should have done himself, without hiding the facts)

https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/2858345-Statement-by-JB-for-IMMEDIATE-RELEASE.html

Notice that the entire rape story was INVENTED BY GIZMODO
Also notice the article writer does not apologize

Yeah, "quality journalism" right there, eh?

Also to be fair, Jalopnik IS a decent site, and it would make me sad if it were to disappear, but chances are it won't anyway. Btw, I am calm

With "these people" I mean the ones responsible for these "damned lies" at Gawker and Gizmodo obviously

Even better, the OTHER women who were allegedely assaulted as claimed by Gizmodo responded as well

https://twitter.com/cfarivar/status/741634572673110016

So an entire career and life destroyed by Gizmodo based on nothing but lies. ~.~

In case you're interested, I found this thread interesting: http://eu.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/17612051058?page=1

Well this certainly explains my beta experiences....

For comparison in BF4 (no match-making, I am division 1 skill wise) (statistically, this is what you should see in a game with vast team sizes and servers that employ scramble/auto balancing)

Wins 563
Losses 442

56% win rate / 1.59 KD -- THIS is how RANDOM MM should look like, division 1 is highest skill, so I have 6% better win rate than average over more than 1000 matches.

In HOTS as total noob I was trending after 60 games 30/30 (50% clean) and had some really weird as fuck experienecs, I was matched against people who had EVERY SKIN UNLOCKED and played godlike!!! Yes, as total noob, first match with a new char... and in Overwatch I was winning 7 times in a row with a mix of 4 chars, I wondered wtf was going on, when suddenly the game flat out threw me out of the lobby to requeue, and suddenly I was losing all the next games. When I experienced that I uninstalled and never looked back.... there was very clearly some rigging going on, as if the game knew you won too much and now punishes you for it HARD until it's 50% win rate again... also I never felt like any of the victories were hard fought. It always felt like... either my team knew what it was doing or the enemy team did. It never felt like balanced force.

Holy crap if that is really how the MM in Hots / Overwatch worked then I finally figured out why I felt incredibly cheated after playing each game for a time. I never could put it into words before.. couldn't prove it after all.

This is some incredibly shitty way to do MM if that is *really* how it's done. But it's also worth mentioning that in a truly random MM you also gravitate towards 50% win/loss rate. But the experiences is massively different when it's a preordained win or when your squad is really just a force of superman that just so happens to work well together in a pub match.

So.. I have to say I am a bit split.. random MM in BF4 is certainly not much better, but at least it really feels like you can pull off some victories that are so narrow you couldn't believe you won. I've had 2000 ticket matches end with a win that was 1 - 0 in tickets. Never had anything like that in Overwatch beta.

I don't know much about the Appelbaum situation. The supposed victim says it's not true but I didn't know Gawker had anything to do with making it up. Making stuff up could be a valid reason for bankruptcy-inducing punishment but it shouldn't be done by setting a precedent for something else. Not for reporting something that at least really happened.

The apology would be after a court has ruled on exactly what they did wrong. Even if hypothetically they did accept they were wrong, they wouldn't want to risk admitting to more than they mean to. I mean, they wouldn't want to get sued to oblivion

Hehe, that is true I guess ,p I mean I get your point, it sets a not so clear cut precedent though the penalty will be reduced no doubt, but Gawker invited all the hate and punishment they get through their own behavior.

See, the problem is every case that involves Gawker needs some external links and tons of background and references to understand why what Gawker is doing is not just "freedom of press" but criminal slander.

And is that a bad thing? Publications should post news that are newsworthy and should maybe think a bit before pushing news to millions of potential readers. Most importantly they should make sure that what they post is legal, (maybe) ethical acceptable and verifiable. And how is that a hard thing to even decide? Don't slander people, no matter what, problem solved. Also Gawker would not exist if they'd stick to that. Look at the site right now. And despair. These fucktards learned nothing, they continue as if nothing happened, and when you have someone behaving like that, what other recourse, other than total war and annihilation, do you even have left?

And what exactly would be the option between doing nothing and total annihilation? How would you even offer anything that can unslander someone? What would you regard as a fair punishment for the various crimes of Gawker and it's pseudo journalists?

"Don't slander people, no matter what, problem solved."

They didn't slander Hogan (or Thiel) so why was there a problem?

I don't think these issues are simple at all. Privacy law and actual journalism ethics are not clear so the penalty for crossing the line shouldn't involve your entire organisation being nuked from orbit. An alternative would be for Gawker to issue an apology and pay appropriate compensation; closer to 1.4 million than 140 million.

Much as I agree with you, things are always ambiguous in the real world after all (though at least in Hogans and Thiel case I consider it slander), I disagree on 1 point, Gawker SHOULD be nuked from orbit. There is no ambiguity there The world would flat out be a much better place without Gawker.

Also you make a fair point about the height of punishment, but Gawker did not apologize. They refused a deal and refused to remove the video (before the legal proceedings, Hogan did request it after all before he sued them to high heavens).

By the way, why do I think Gawker should die in nuclear armageddon?

Jacob Appelbaum.. Gawker invented a rape scenario, invented victims, spun what happened and ruined a life with lies damned lies and more lies. And again it is Gizmodo that is the shitflinger deluxe. Nuking the company would be way too lenient. Everyone working there is a grade A asshole apparently and these people deserve jail time at the very least.

Was it a "revenge porn campaign" in any way?

I understand that Gawker are awful but I'm not going to celebrate a publication getting shut down by someone rich who didn't like what they said. Even if this hadn't been about revenge by Thiel, it's still a massively disproportionate award that is an attack on freedom of the press.

Posting sex tapes or outing someone as gay who specifically asked you not to is not freedom of the press for fucks sake. That is the behavior of a mentally deranged arsehole. And such arses should, for all intent and purpose, be punished so harshly they won't find their own arse for quite a while.

To be honest, I am a bit baffled how you otherwise smart people can defend this shit flinger outfit. Do you have no ethics whatsoever? Do you not have any acceptance of others right of personal integrity and privacy?

As I said, this baffles me. People who defend Gawker are to me so absurdly alien in their thought patterns that I can not even comprehend what makes you see Gawker as a victim here. So I am curious, what makes you think that someone has the right to post a private sex tape, or to out the sexual orientation of someone against their will? Or start hate campaigns against someone? That is all OK with you? Because that is what you get as a package deal if you defend Gawker.

What makes you think I'm OK with this? There are options between "nothing" and "shut them down".

It's an attack on freedom of the press because all publications will now be worried about publishing anything anyone wants to keep private - because getting it wrong doesn't mean getting sued, it means getting destroyed. Specifically asking a publication not to report news should NOT stop any publication from reporting news!

And is that a bad thing? Publications should post news that are newsworthy and should maybe think a bit before pushing news to millions of potential readers.

Gawker Files For Bankruptcy As It Faces $140 Million Court Penalty

One, it's restructuring (not liquidation), and two, they already have a bid from ziff davis.

it's still a witch.

A witch is a good person compared to these obnoxious shitflingers and rumormongers. Remember, a site that supported revenge porn, started hate campaigns against gays and is run by a full blown village clown.

Also we'll see whether Ziff Davis is stupid enough to buy this crappy site and staff. Hopefully they wipe the slate clean, fire everyone and reboot the sites.

That's a pretty interesting crime novel.. but gods.. someone needs to teach the author to write more concise.

Aside that.. woah.. nightmare doesn't even begin to describe that.

I'm even looking forward to the final being released this year. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016) Lighter
The original and after were one of the few shows, where we could watch badass girls kicking ass and looking good. There's a lot of really good tension, i.e. will they burst out of the clothes at anytime! Zombie Mwahaha

For sure we are not watching this for the story and well developed characters ;p But something about the style of these movies just draws me in... oh well

Still waiting on the "100,000 units on-screen" that they promised multiple times during their kickstarter.

I bitched the devs out on the steam discussions, and the best I got was "it is technically possible to have 100,000 units on a map, they're just being RENDERED OFF-SCREEN"

Fuck you fucknuts.

Just face it, you are not gonna see 100k agent based AI units on screen, ever*. (*next 20 years~)

So the promise was already hyperbolic bullshit imo Look at Total War Warhammer, you can have what, 6000 soldiers on the field zoomed out no problem, but that's the limit, beyond that you crash hard against the single core performance of modern CPU's, which are still the defining limiting factor in real time AI calculations sadly...

It's Bethesda or Zenimaxx behind this and I can't fathom what the fuck both parties are thinking, especially the retarded post by the PR manager that modders should file a DMCA notice (which is a legal document and costs you actual money if you require council). So this is not just a completely fucking retarded response to the problem, but for some modders it's completely impossible to even tell whether something is stolen or not because.. imagine that! They don't own a console.. lmao


Just 1 year ago we had the VERY SAME PROBLEM on steam paid mods section, which was quickly canned because of the clusterfuck.

Now, Bethesda does the same thing with even less regulation and overview.. wow

I think someone at Bethesda must have dementia. There is no way, after the paid mod fiasco, that they weren't aware of the requirements for modding communities to remain peaceful.

What they did now, is make Beth games PC modding a hostile community that is already detailing every step needed to make a mod incompatible with bethesda.net . Way to go Bethesda...

To be honest, graphics weren't the only problem of that "game".. since there was barely anything to actually do and all these fancy systems were so halfheartedly implemented... doubt this one is going to be better on that front.
Ah, one of these parallel universes things I see. Watchdogs beats GTA IV/V hands down when it comes to real gameplay. I`v hardly done any story missions, because there`s just stuff happening all around and all of it it`s fun: systems that actually make use of the city and it`s denizens. Shooting is superb, driving less so but still okay, and random events pop in all the time...combined with CTOS manipulation it`s all a real sandbox.

Somehow it seems people got confused over the years and prefer to go to a yoga class, play some lame tennis, sit in an internet cafe or be harassed by phone calls from gfs/cousins. Never mind heavily scripted missions and a beautiful city devoid of any action. Each to it`s own, eh?

My jab was exactly that, this isn't a fun hacking cyber thriller game, it's a sandbox where the douchenozzle of a character we have to play gets to fuck peoples lives up. I mean that literally, he is not an anti-hero, he is a full blown terrorist and he has a charm of a leprosy patient.

So if you can take enjoyment out of the map activities then that is nice for you I guess, but I couldn't. I hated the main char, hated the dumb as brick AI, hated the sneaking missions... short: I did not like the game whatsoever.

And hey, GTA is GTA and for all its failings was immensely FUN in SP from 2 to 5

Well I dunno about console modding but as a modder if you took my work in a collection or combine it but leave credit for artwork/scripts intact I'd have no issue.. I don't mod for anyone but myself anyway.

But what happened here was more like an asshole stealing mods and putting his own paypal as donation link in the description. Fuck people doing that, and their kind.

Fact is also that since paid mods, it does not seem as if Bethesda learned a single fucking thing.
