Re: Using of software programmable macros in competitive games

You're using software external to the standard client to glean advantage... What's the difference? Theres a huge difference between a program that simulates key presses and modifying your client. There is just as many differences if you were using injection. My analogy stands, the point was that it...

Re: RAGL Season 5 Post Season Discussion

Although for 1 player strikes I'd find it unlikely the other side would agree to play. There's a lot of complications with 1 player strikes replaying matches. Im curious what the complications are if 1 player gets the strike but they both agree to play it out? Not everyone is like Ganon and will ta...

Re: RAGL Season 5 Post Season Discussion

4. There are too many divisions/players It's nice that RAGL welcomes everybody but the problem is that lower divisions are not as interesting as the top ones. There's no intrigue there. I am not saying we should remove those but as a viewer, I don't find anything interesting in them, so maybe we co...

Re: What to do about racism in OpenRA - Red Alert?

That might get better with the accounts when you dont see where someone else is from. People think this is a benefit when in reality its just another box people check before kicking someone from the game. Then if they don't kick them its time to make a smart remark about their locale. For the past ...

Re: What to do about racism in OpenRA - Red Alert?

... That might work with children, but here? I think ignoring mainly helps establishing a reality in which words and meanings start to change. If people challenge the idea that the n*word is racist, there is something wrong - given that scenario everyone had a german ip, you can expect the knowledg...

Re: What to do about racism in OpenRA - Red Alert?

the part I quoted represents IMO such fundamental conventions of human interaction that I am surprised that you feel the need to explicit point out that it is not binding for you (or other people). You might as well bring up a Bible quote then because it is just as relevant to playing the game than...

Re: What to do about racism in OpenRA - Red Alert?

I usually dont play with those people and try to problematize, which as you might guess, usually doesnt lead to: ah well, true the n*word is a historical reference to colonialism and slavery and so on and therefore pretty racist - thanks that you are reminding me". No the answer is rather something...

Re: I was told 5 YEARS AGO that the RAT tank would return to OPENRA by SLEIPNIR HIMSELF

um, sweetie. the rat tank has in fact been in OpenRa, and you are revealing your status as a "n00b" (pro gamer terminology) that has no real gamer cred (also pro gamer terminology) by replying so foolishly. in a mod map ≠ in openra Sorry maybe i am wrong but i play this game much longer than 5 year...

Re: please remove all instances of communist symbology in Red Alert

make sense since nazism symbology is banned on the resource center as well

or we could, you know, man up and change the definition of those symbols like the people who tainted them

Re: Thoughts from a player playing Red Alert for a couple of months

Secondly: the competitive scene. I dont think anyone chooses allies for chrono ability and/or chooses Germany for its advanced Chrono shift. Therefor a nerve doesnt seem the correct action. This change is actually a buff to the chrono shift strategy, even with the 50% damage. Now the MCV will have ...

Re: 2018 RA Balance

There is basically 3 options to fix the husk capture imbalance. 1. Give capturing to engineer only 2. Give mechanic to all sides 3. Completely remove it I feel this tends to be in isolated games where 2 IRL friends plan a strat on a chokey map vs 2 random players. The better skilled regular allying ...

(hijacker uncrushable pls). If there's a yaml solution for something that I've overlooked then yeah, I'd like to look into it. A workaround or yaml 'hack' however will likely not make it through the review process. Uncrushable hijackers are a good example of this. The reason that uncrushable hijack...

I've seen the "Why fix 'x' when 'a', 'b', and 'c' are clearly more broken" line of thinking several times, and I have to call it out for the logical fallacy it is. The way I see it, I can either sit on my balls and do nothing, or I can fix what I can fix. It's pretty much my life philosophy. Since ...
