Tav,

Although your post is very well put, it probably will do little to console those posters so deeply concerned with the grave damage that we've done to our branding.

Because the task is large and difficult doesn't mean we can't do it if we keep working on it for the next 100 years. But if we sit back and don't invest in these technologies we won't succeed. We are more and more likely to go through a disaster that sets us back to the stone age, whether its a nuclear war, a plague (natural or manmade) or a disaster like an asteroid hit.


Yup. And there will be significant incremental technological improvements along the way that improve the quality of life for people worldwide, in the same way that satellites, etc. listed above did. Space seemed like folly until we got there and figured out ways that we put it to use for people down here.

Additionally, if there were graphics i wouldn't/couldn't play, this game is charming in its simplicity.. I don't see why it wouldn't appeal to others in my demo, if there were only a way to market it.


100% agree. Like everything else on the internet, though, everyone turns into an asshole and that's when we can't continue to have nice things.

Political theater like this is ridiculous. We should all remember this as the day that California moved past its deep Confederate roots by banning replica confederate money from being sold in the gift shop, unless it is for historical or educational purposes. (I didn't think it had the confederate flag on it...is that not the case?)

Not exactly. Viewpoint-based threats (including those that target hate groups) have and would continue to run afoul of the First Amendment.

I'm sure comsat (and even my co) would love to run customer service like it did the first week it launched, personalised with the principals, but it isn't realistic.


I disagree. I think Comcast intentionally uses poor customer service to create barriers to cancelling service. I think that they see poor customer service as a competitive advantage, not something that they inadvertently lost as they've grown.

That way everyone happy, an LCN restart would be at 2100 acres (randomly built) and 1.4mNW in random military units and tech and readily able to kick some punch in a war while a solo suicider would be out of humanitarian range at his first reincarnation.


Oh wow, that sounds really good. Would put greater emphasis on building better countries and teamwork, and would reduce the impact of the bonus on suiciders, while still allowing people to get back into the fight right away.


+1

I also think that rebalancing some of the other war aspects of the game (making EMs more worthwhile, for example) may help by giving the affected alliances the ability to further liquidate the suicider's units and perhaps other resources, which would limit his restart strength.

You are in a position to force change. I am just asking you to begin forcing that change in a new way. Attrition is not a tactic that benefits the game.


After spending numerous sets being subject to the attrition tactic, we're acutely aware that it doesn't benefit the game. aponic, I don't doubt that you've got good intentions here, but we're also mindful that SoF hasn't hesitated to use that tactic to an extreme. You mentioned earlier that MD/SoL/LCN have nothing to lose, but I disagree. Why wouldn't SoF do the exact same thing to us again if given the opportunity?

If I'm traveling, the quality of coffee is only one factor in my choice and is sometimes less important than whether there is a place to sit and food options.

Those things being equal, I like trying a local place, but it is more of a risk. Depends on whether I'm ok with bad coffee at that time.
