Mike_LowELL: KajakPro: AppleOptionEsc: Murkanen: Mike_LowELL: More plausible than the World of Warcraft story arc.

The one they have running now or the one where Thrall has seemingly lost his mind because he appoints "Kill everything without green skin" Garrosh as his replacement for leader of the Horde?

Better than the hippie, Jaina "I'm going to lead you into the undercity, then teleport away, accomplishing nothing" Proudmore, leading the alliance against her ex-boyfriend, who she will eternally love.

/this post makes as much sense that this link.

I remember when Warcraft Characters were stalwart examples of bravery, like Lothar and five knights charging headlong into like 20 bloodlusted Ogre Magi in Human 10 or so in WarCraft 2. Or Gul'dan deciding to be a dick like a real warlock and just take over the horde from Ogrim Doomhammer.
None of this Noble Savage Orc bullshait either.

/That was so long ago. SO LONG AGO.

Followed it all since the beginning. The story arc was excellent at the end of Reign of Chaos and fizzled out a bit during The Frozen Throne. Then World of Warcraft loudly stated that twenty-five to forty morons could take down some of the most powerful beings in the Warcraft universe and destroyed its credibility.


It's worse than that. Almost every raid is retconned in canon (yes, the shiatty mary sue porn books are canon), to where the raid boss is soloed or maybe five-manned by a major lore character. Thousands of adventurers collaborating and progressing to their maximum experience so they can form groups of 25 to kill powerful beings is actually much more plausible.

Yeah, they broke the horde vs. alliance story so they could force them into complete conflict. They were setting up Med'an to be the new Guardian but they changed to Thrall at the last minute. But Blizzard will make it work, they always do.

Tatsuma: HotWingConspiracy: Still pretty awesome though. I made a fisticuffs character in Oblivion, but I'm too much of a headshot junkie to do it in Fallout.

Thank you, thank you.

And bah, headshots get boring after a while, tired of the same animation.

The novelty of a mixed African-American/Hispanic Girl wearing a lovely green summer dress, Buddy Holly glasses and ribbon in hear hear quickly running up to huge bands of raiders and decimating them using a ripper and dogmeat while "bingo bango bongo I don't want to leave the congo no no no no" or Billie Holiday plays in the background has yet to wear off.

HotWingConspiracy: I think it's kind of cheesy that you can pause the game to heal.

Real men bind the stimpacks to a key and never pause.

They also do the same with Rad-X and do the trip back and forth to the radiated vault entrance and back without dying, too.


Real men install Fallout: Wasteland Edition Link (new window) and play through as a Raider.

Amateurs.

Highway61Revisited: Apik0r0s: Tatsuma: First, I will quote the verse that says we should emulate G-d in all of his ways.


GOD certainly doesn't see through your clever ruse there, he's fooled by that one every time.

Dude, perhaps you're attacked because you're so abrasive.

Debate folks on the issues, don't pick on somebody because they practice certain well known religious traditions (such as writing G-d).


I love how easily everyone forgets how much of a douche Tats is.

Only till he craps all over a thread about someone disagreeing with israel, or someone NOT completely panning the persians, arabs or palestinians. Not to mention when he will occasionally threadjack to somehow involve israel where ever possible.

I remember some shameful stuff, trying to play the proportions game when it comes to genocide, discounting the romas/gypsies/blacks/russians/poles in the holocaust, 'no true scotsman' accusation towards other jews who don't agree with him, discussions between him and Persepolis, and especially from the thread that mysteriously got yanked a couple months back...

In summation, Tatsuma is a real piece of shiat whom occasionally tries to cover himself in powdered sugar and pass it off as a long john.

That's why they put the word SATIRE on the main page.

If you (or the makers of this game) believe that is satire, then either you suck at writing or you suck at reading the dictionary.

I don't want to threadjack, but is there some place I can read up on the changes and retcons in Warcraft lore?

I have to be honest, do these people think a civil war here will actually help the US? It would leave major cities a smoking ruin. Industrial capacity would be wiped out. Millions would starve.

We would be open to invasion by foreign powers as well.

Seriously, do these people think the rest of the world will standby and wait as we have a massive temper tantrum?

People like this enjoy fantasizing about being involved in an epic struggle with a clear and easily identifiable enemy. For them, the civil war is all part of the story, a grand narrative in which they play heroes.

Of course, they never think about the millions who'd die in such a conflict. Some cases might go for the "Cozy Catastrophe" approach, where nothing really bad happens to them or the people they care about. This is a disturbingly myopic viewpoint, but one that comes naturally to humans.

It's the same with the people who enjoy quotes such as 'vote from the rooftops' and 'The tree of liberty needs to be watered with the blood of tyrants'. Basically saying they'd be willing to kill people for their half assed political opinions.

Since I seem to have confused your original post, let's go through it with my previous caveat. This is a farking game- nothing more.

Civil Wars are based on emotion. They usually begin when a ruling group have teed off another group enough to believe that they have no choice but to rebel. The consequences are rarely at the top of the checklist.

Industrial capacity for all of North America bugged off with NAFTA. any rebuild would be from the ground up.

Millions would starve. Many more would die from disease, pestilence and collateral damage. Again, Civil War is based on emotion.

The rest of the world would go on and ignore what is going on unless directly threatened. The Military-Industrial Complex (Kudos, Ike) will profit by selling to both sides.

The biggest threat would come at the end, when the modern day Carpetbaggers come in and buy up anything available with the money just given to them in the Worldwide bailouts that were just extorted from all of us.

Anybody else have something to add? THEORETICALLY, of course.

That clearer?
