Whats really sad is they will never hold Croberts responsible , the unhinged ones that is. They will blame Derek Smart and that reporter from the escapist etc . I know this forum is for comedy etc, but I have met some of these guys and when this goes up I really wouldn't put anything beyond them. There are a load of current and ex military guys and various Eastern European Physco's not to mention the Nazi contingent and the gun nuts ... some very very scary people are invested into this.

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.

Luckily for Derek the redditors and others have been so terrified of using his real name for fear of invoking his true powers the deranged whales will be trying to for some guy named "Dumb Simpleton" or "Derphead Shart"

To me it comes across as the re-defined words like how managers do when they can't properly describe their thoughts, or want to create a word-illusion so everyone thinks they understand each other and he can do what he wants. Providing the symbols of thought so people don't use their own thinking.

Yes, the term far predates Star Citizen. It was often used alongside terms such as realism and immersion. It was the kind of term vomited up in lazy game reviews for years and years. It makes about as much sense in a review as the word 'fun'. You are supposed to just nod your head and pretend to understand what the writer means when they use it. It is far more useful to explain why something is high fidelity, or fun, or immersive rather than just stating it.

I wouldn't worry about it that much. Eve online has more than it's fair share of this kind of idiot and real money involved, at least for the renters in the Drone regions. It requires to drag your cheeto-dusted bulk someplace to act on your frustrations, so most just threaten from a keyboard.

I was trying to find the thread where Remedial was offered the services of a Russian to go chainsaw the power lines of a rival, but couldn't locate it; poo poo got crazy for a while, though.

Well, they did spend months writing about the great merge of the Illfonic code. There must be SOMETHING in 2.1 that Illfonic made.
Right? They didn't just spend that time doing "Accept my version" for every single merge conflict? They wouldn't do that, right?

No one banked their future happiness on EVE though. Every hardcore EVE player knew that game only came with misery, decline & neglect. Some guys made money selling space gold, but I think even making some money on some game gives you perspective that blowing all your money on the promise of future fulfillment really doesn't.

I won't be surprised if some shitizens snap when it all goes tits up.

I'd take exception to that and present exhibit A, Star Citizens with Eve PTSD.

Aug 29, 2008



I would like to suggest some achievments for Solar Plebeian:

"Non-consensual PVP!" - destroy an enemy in one hit without taking damage yourself

"Full Burn!" - ram an enemy at full speed

"Two weeks!" - ram an enemy but inflict no more than 2% damage

"Hollywood Dreams!" - ram an enemy and inflict no damage

"Let me loving finish!" - score five hits in a row on the same victim without taking damage

"That's him in the wheelchair!" - steal a kill from another player when the victim is almost destroyed

"Professional Threat Assessment!" - a near miss, you go for a ram but veer away at the last second

"Goonswarm!" - three or more players hit the same target simultaenously

"Derek's Smarties!" - destroy the enemy team without a single loss on your side

"Fidelity!" - your ship glitches through another player's, destroying both

"All hail The Fourth Stimpire!" - kill the same player three times in a row

"Hanger Ready!" - survive with just 1% health remaining

I just had a great shower. I know it was great, because I had two new awesome ideas for Solar Plebian.

Idea #1 is a weapon.

Let me introduce the D3RK Smartbomb. It's the final word in any altercation, because it lets you loving finish.

Idea #2 is a planet.

Planet Awful. It's name betrays it's true nature as the most popular destination in the 'universe, due to it's low tax, and no voting system.

Folks are more than welcome to fluff these out and run with them.

Solar Plebeian

Smartbomb should disable enemy ships by overloading the screen with blog text. Maybe we can get D_Smart's permission to use actual blog text so he doesn't sue the pants off everyone. Disabling the ship makes it easier to loving finish the fight by ramming them straight to hell.

Planet Awful could be a wonderful vacation spot, where visitors can shop, relax, and go sight-seeing. Daily safaris take visitors out to witness the primitive and warlike Ghün in their natural habitat. Just be careful, the smell of fun enrages the primitive Ghüns, and they will attempt to destroy any game they see, especially if it is being played by one of the frog-like peoples of Rebbit VII.
