Just another C&C player. Played them all.
Don't worry Patrick, we have all been there, we all know the Swarm Bone Catapult mass with all production speed upgrades is too tempting to avoid. :)
Cow throwing is already a thing, though instead of extra damage it should spread disease or at least lowering the morale with the Nausea mechanic you mentioned (I would seriously love it if Plague armies were about inflicting debuffs on the enemy through armour eating acids on the Slimes, diseases everywhere and morale destroying Nausea). It would be really cool if Plaguelords got a brownish version of the Bone Catapult (possibly with new name like Plague Mangonel or something) that deal disease aswell as damage and you can upgrade the area of effect of the disease with some upgrade called "Feverish Rot" or something in the likes.
Dwarves or Empire getting a "Oil Munitions" upgrade to allow Catapults to deal fire damage could be cool aswell, the dwarves are supposed to be masters at siege warfare but they only get the regular stock anyway plus a new upgrade for siege, which isn't much.
Hey, what about one faction upgrading their Catapults with Flaming Oil (incresed AoE) and Plaguelords Bone Cats with Plague Munitions?
Its not cheating, it is rewarding a player for knowing game rules really. And definitely very Orky. :D
Maybe, but I still feel the Wolf Riders could use a buff really, after playing with them recently. Perhaps they become better with the new disease systems you are implementing on the next patch.
Its cool the Orcs and Undead are recieving some new racial feature. I hope other races receive something like this in the future.
Conquest needn't be of people, you can also conquer land, knowledge, weakness, obstacles etc.
I believe we as a society are stronger than as individuals. Nothing would advance if we didnt work together because everyone would be too busy just surviving. I believe the only way to become strong is as civilization, by having individuals weed out their weakness by themselves so all are truly equal and able. Of course I dont believe everyone should think exactly alike, that would be a major weakness. But having everyone work toward the same goals is essencial for advancement, and if any alien civilization surpassed the need for warfare, it was because of cooperation nut individualism.
Is that through an upgrade?
Also, Orcs can already be improved to be resistant to arrows, perhaps goblins could get desiese immunity. Wolf Riders also need a bit of a buff, its almost not worth it training them compared to regular Orcs and Ogres.
Technically, Khorne transcends universes. Where there are two people trying to kill each other, there is Khorne.
Or was it Sartek...
Sadly, it is ourselves that make being a person complicated.
I fight as a Champion, in the name if others.
War involves Destruction, buta Destroyer only destroys mindlessly. A Warlord destroys weakness, to establish strength, because the weak are never free but the strong have atleast a chance at it.
If I do not learn what as happened before I conquered, I am fated to repeat it, like the Persians and the Sassanids and the Mongols. All were powerful warrior peoples, but after the conquest they grew soft and were later disposed of by invaders or the very peoples they had conquered. History is a good teacher, far kinder than Experience.
It is also often said that the intelligent man learns from his mistakes, the wise man learns from the mistakes of other.
If we are no willing to aknowledge the Cycle, it will trample over us, but if we know and study it, we may direct its wheeling, maybe even break it in the future. I bet you would like that. :)
Search your heart, you know it be right.
I am thinking like a Warlord. Warlords must first know what the enemy is and what they can learn from it before conquering it, oterwise we are just Destroyers. :)
Surrounded himself with legions of blue eyed, blond boys in black leather and armies of big jungle cats, all for his fear of jews.
Got mauled by a bear and pecked by an eagle.
Got burnt down to ash as to expose all manners of heretical filth that resided within? :D
That glow. Tiberium is the answer to our energy problems.
Society has always been about the rich and/or the powerful having others do stuff for them. Humans on other worlds would still be humans, therefore susceptible to the same flaws. If we compare our civilization with other human civs throughout time and space, we will see we are not very different, so we cannot expect Mankind to act better than what it did so far, worse is even more likely because other worlds will not be so resource abundant as this one, in which we are programmed to survive.
The elites will be the ones that will fund the colonies, like Kings and Lords on the Age of Discovery did.
They will have security personnel with the colonists that will seize control of the colony to let them in if the colonist attempt anything.
Even if a revolt is successful, they would just pay mercenaries to destroy the colony and all the colonists in it, since life outside the colony would be impossible. Not even to mention that, with other worlds in mind and no longer having to care about preserving just one like we do now because we have nowhere else to go, nuclear weapons would probably be more liberally used on the colonies, specially if they are branded as rebellious or traitors.
The Kirk era was great, it was artistic, intelligent, invited to debate by parodying society and made a middle ground between respecting faith and science. Too bad shows don't do that nowadays.
SW's Force makes it more fantasy. I like Star Wars aswell, but I still feel Star Trek is better and militarily more powerful.
The first colonist will never be the rich elites. Those people are not the technogical engineers and craftsman that will be needed to start the colonial infrastructure. The common man will be the second stage colonist and only then will the elites come. Just like in colonial times. The first colonist will be builders and scientists, maybe even some religious people and artists to give the colonists a pause on their work for continous survival on a world not tailored for them, as so they do not grow weary or depressed.
About the NASA pics: I didnt mention them, I would rather wait for a planet surface survey of Mars to be done by a non-state dependant organization so we could actually what it is like. And even then I would only trust in a comparison by a variety of sources, just like the Bible says I must do ("by the word of two or three men...").
What I mentioned was the condition of the core of Mars and its lack of a suitable atmosphere, both of which were verified by multiple studies and not just one trip with awkward covered up places (get you game straight NASA, Mars doesnt even have clouds, its not difficult to photograph an almost naked surface). ;)
To me, Star Trek is more advanced than Star Wars. ST is based more on scientific theory and fiction based on scientific law, while SW is more based on fantasy.
The weapons on ST also are quite stronger than those of SW. SW has blasters, rockets and plasma swords while ST has Graviton torpedoes that create small black holes and make ships without powerful exotic particle deflectors implode, Disruption weaponry that aggitates matter to a state where it is permeable and therefore cannot retain structural integrity, Photon based weaponry that is basically hard light and the power of multiple thermonuclear weapons, Phasic and Transphasic weapons that shifts between molecular structure to surpass any possible shielding, Temporal weaponry that simply erases the enemy from existance, even negating any damage your own ship might have sustained because the fight never happened after the enemy had been erased...
I am a huge Star Trek nerd! :)
I think it was scrapped because walls were also scrapped and that tower seems to have some wall hub characteristics at the base.
When people mention colonizing Venus, they mean something like the Cloud Cities of Bespin (Star Wars) because the surface is too hot, under a lot of preasure and suffers sulfuric rains as you said, so even if it was possible to colonize the surface, the Cloud Cities would actually still have better living conditions and require less technological effort. Also, they would ease space travel from Venus because they already are in an upper layer than the surface.
Mars's core has become cold and solid, that is the only reason we are not colonizing it, because a it doesnt have the proper atmospheric shielding it needs to ward of radiation. If we could, however build a planetary network of shielding devices, and warm up the planet with industry (which we are actually vety good at and Mars has a lot of iron which we love to use), colonization would be a given in a few years.
Now I am hungry! ;D
Fist fighting, its what I learned to survive.
I am not great at it, but I can hit really hard, enough that I usually don't have to it again.
Though, I am thinking about trying HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts), which would teach me from hand-to-hand combat to even sword fighting.
Pretty hot actually.
Im fine. I dont like to fight verbally, only phisically and as a sport, to teach defense or warfare. :)
I dont know any place to debate where people actually respect the opinions of other sadly.
It was Nokia all along! :)
Lol, this is great. This must be why Elsa was such a bitch throughout most of the movie.
