Re: Video of someone learning SC2

Yes, UI is so important for a game that is going to be played in real-time.

PDS manages to circumvent this by not particularly marketing to the MP community though. Too bad it's AI makes such a poor opponent :)

Depends whether the Raptors win game 6 or not... had to look that one up: Game 6*: Thursday, June 13, at at Golden State, 6 p.m. PT But Game 7 will be on Sunday if GS wins tonight, which is ummd point. I think I'm going to bow out of this game, more I think about it less I'm interested in dusting o...

Re: June Game

I messaged Bill about the possibility of me playing Turkey as an allied minor to Soviet Union, idea being Turkey could not join the war until Soviets do and would be an ally of the Soviets. I thought it was an interesting idea, and I'm free on Sundays for the summer since schools out and the heat in...

Re: CK2 2 - Electric Boogaloo

Did somebody say Scotland!! ? I suck at this game, but can join for fun. There's really no being "good" at CK2, it's more just for sh1ts and laughs. Quite good at it really :) The most fun I've had with CK2 is when I'm doing poorly, when I'm doing "well" it often gets boring. Come join us, MP CK2 i...

Re: April 7th Game (Springtime for hitler)

Why don't you guys all just get your moms a copy of HoI4 for mothers day? Then you can play plus up your player count!

Re: Recruitment

If you do 3 I would suggest playing Germany UK and Soviets. That's a reasonably balanced game. Japan USA and China are a viable Pacific option as well

Uhhh... no thanks. HOI4 is definitely not my area of expertise, I only understand about 33% of what's going on at any given time.

Re: Future of the Game: Rules and Balance Discussion

From a fairly neutral perspective on the matter, I think a lot of HOI4 problems could be resolved by playing it similar to a team sport with a schoolyard pick. Designate two people to be captains, these are going to be your two teams - it should be two players who are familiar with the game, its mec...

Yeah the campaigns that come out of this game are great, really feels like being in charge of a Pacific campaign. Nothing like seeing all your plans come together on a big operation.

Re: Stellaris Megacorp

Yeah, go ahead and count me out of Stellaris game. I've got around 1 billion different things going on these days, and it's tough trying to juggle PDS games into the mix right now. You guys feel free to treat the Brotherhood as any other AI and dismantle it as you see fit :) They had a glorious star...
