Maybe it won't be as amusing to you guys as it was to me, but it made me laugh. 
[1:35:38 PM] CrazyC0330: i love how when you use the cheat to kill a unit, they do their death animation instead of just disappearing from the map.  makes it so much more satisfying
[1:35:51 PM] cari_elf: bloodthirsty much?
[1:36:04 PM] CrazyC0330: i usually do it right after they say something about my city being ripe for the taking
[1:36:23 PM] CrazyC0330: mess with fire, ya get burnt. ya know.

I also bake, which increases my cuteness score.    Especially when I bring in my Irish Car Bomb cupcakes to the office.

Irish Car Bomb cupcakes!  That makes her a 9.9 in my book.  If she makes a velvety NY style cheesecake, that bumps her to a 12!!


(Well played, Cari!)

I think the real double-standard in gaming is, males actually have to BE cute.  Females don't.  Some of our pickier male gamers with some real standards they hold to, they insist that the females have 2 arms and 2 legs.   But some of our Halo gamers used to dismembering aliens with rocket launchers, that part is optional, too.

Nothing to do with this thread. Don't be a troll.

No, it has to do with the state of the game, and Stardock's attitude towards it. It's like they all only have the minds of programmers and not gamers.

Second: Follow them more closely. I don't even follow this game and it's pretty obvious they're putting a ton of thought and work into it.

That sounds like the wishful thinking of a fanboy. I'm sorry but I waited patiently for months before giving up on this game. I see no such signs that they're putting a ton of thought and work into it. I see nothing on the horizon that promises to make this game more dynamic and interesting, the modders have done a much better job adding interesting content than Stardock, I see Stardock fixing what's broken and rearranging tech trees, I don't see them making the game much more interesting to play.

Third: If all you intend to do is insult them now, just don't post.

Oh how nice it must be to live in a world that abides by the Thumper rule. "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all". Let us all insulate private companies from the negative feedback of their paying customers, any expression of cynicism or dissatisfaction must be silenced, all sarcasm must be stopped, and any post that isn't written with constructive intent must hold no possible feedback value. Negative indicators do not exist, and negative threads can not call attention to problems that need addressing. Amiright?

Boo Hoo...

There are lots and lots of threads about the state of the game... Why this one couldn't be just fun /or silly/ ?

Valentine82, just a little joke here. Obvious not your type of humor. Thats ok. Why not looking for another thread where you can trow out all your sarcasm, cynicism and negativity. Like flymar wrote there are many threads, where people make statements about the state of the game and how to improve. (not only cynicism, sarcasm and negativity)

And btw. I for myself (i think many others here too) are now for month over the point you try to make .

You bought WoM last year? Read the dev. journals about FE and be happy you get it for free.

Above two posters miss the point and objection completely.

What's frustrating about this game is that it's a massive heap of wasted potential, so much could be done, and a lot of it rather easily (as some modders have shown) but just isn't being done, so what we have is a shell of the game that should have been, with two bland factions having zero depth, bad diplomacy, cumbersome trade, and far too limited options in modifying the aesthetics of our kingdoms. Modders have gone to great lengths to diversify the factions and the result is that players get punished for having the wrong terrains and such. So much could be done to improve this game so easily, and for the most part all stardock does is rearrange techtrees, tweak the AI, fix bugs and adjust building costs.


Can we get some content please?

Ok, you will not stop. Go on with your lament.

on Jun 28, 2011

It's always funny when people lament lamentation.

The fact that I think that this thread is the wrong place for this sort of thing aside, I actually kind of agree with Valentine82.

I think that he's right in that there are a lot of tweaks and additions that have a very low man-hour cost that would serve to benefit the game and series. I understand that, in all likelihood, most if not all of us will migrate to FE once it's developed, but they could be done prospectively with ease for FE.

For example, take the tech tree. From what we've seen, it's still pretty dry, with a distinct "Unlock Feature 1," Unlock Feature 2," etc. kind of feel. I don't think that Val is going about it in a very productive manner, but I really don't think he's all wrong when it comes down to it.

This is just a light hearted fun post. It's not representative of the views of even the people who are in it. Much less the devs as a whole.

I'm no fan. I haven't booted Elemental in nearly a year due to the poor quality. If you'll notice which forum I'm posting from, I don't even visit the Elemental site. I don't care about Elemental. But I can see there's lots of stuff they're working on on it still.

'Giving feedback' isn't an excuse to insult people. Or, look at it this way: I'm giving you feedback in that your posts are insulting and have no reason to be on here.
