Went dig this up from well over 2000 pages worth of comments, just for the occasion: Cdn.discordapp.com
That was a really good username, still getting funnies after almost 5 years.

Excogitatoris-Logica @ WiC campaign logic.

Videogame magic!
That said, WiC is a technological wonder of RTS games IMO. Looks amazeballs (specially for a 2008 game), definitively the closest to realistic weapon range on any RTS I've ever seen, and framerate doesn't inversely relate to zooming the camera out.

Excogitatoris-Logica @ Brain surgery required.

Anti missile lasers? More like naval railguns Tvtropes.org (see the note under the picture)
When you got a gun that shoots SO hard, it could easily shoot down satellites in orbit, ICBMs are cute.

About the title: So... the lobotomy involved in making a servitor counts as brain surgery? They *will* end up smarter.

Saw description, got hyped because anime about these specific comics I knew to be reliably hilarious, but (unfortunately) there's no anime of it. Yet.
Just the manga (and a webcomic) for now.

Whatever, dude. You can lie to yourself and you can lie to others, but the latter won't do much if others don't buy it.
I actively avoid human interaction because of how much it hinges on deceit, lies and overall lack of honesty, so my mistake was clear: Commenting here in the first place. It was only counterproductive, it got me tangled in a reply chain.

Yup, never heard of that particular bit school corporal punishment lingo. Which makes sense, as I live in South America.
Also: "I take it that people have dirty minds nowadays"
You say that like it didn't include you, who had that animated BioShock avatar.
Plus the picture itself doesn't make a good case for its artist being pure and innocent. Roughly everything in it is too specific.

Read title, thought "sounds like heresy on itself", pleasantly surprised to notice it didn't mean the kind of licking that's done with a tongue. To be fair, I have *never* seen a ruler referred to as a 'lick' before this post.
Also picture's still blatantly heretical. Closest Imperial authorities have been contacted. Don't worry, we're not getting BLAM'd. They told me on the Vox link that everyone related to this incident gets a lifetime of faithful servitude to the Emperor as a servitor free of charge, so we're A-OK.

Hore carp, THAT is an overkill build. It's only missing this guy on top I.ytimg.com
But seriously now, nice stuff.

I know it makes no difference at this point, but why not a Ryzen 7 1800X? While the i7 7700K has better single thread performance, it's not like 1800X wasn't gonna be enough to run anything at maxed settings. Get twice the cores while on it.

Also before I forget: Good to see you back Kark, you're sure making a grand return. My respect goes to you on having the patience to build something THAT good-looking, you even neatly tied cables that aren't directly visible :O

Saw this, actually ended up wondering how (old) Necrons would work in such a game. The slow-moving robot zombies theme oldcrons got doesn't sound like a good thing for sports.

Excogitatoris-Logica @ You've goat to be kidding me.

That's a clickbait title alright. On the "news" article, I mean.
Title gets me "deluded git tries becoming a goat on a physical level",
yet the subtitle (and photo) gets me "man of science fascinated with goats conducts a field experiment".
The latter makes a lot more sense if you think about it, the kinda people that "sexually identifies as a goat" usually abhor doing actual effort towards their goals.
They're more about getting what they want from others' work, which others still do, in a desperate attempt hoping to get 'em made-up-genders to stop whining on how "oppressed" they are.

Excogitatoris-Logica @ Operation: Firestorm

I was gonna say I'm positive I have the widescreen UI installed but then noticed that was before the beta 2 update, whoops.
Also, in retrospect I think there's a couple bits more I could add:
I usually go for quick teching, get a superweapon up asap, then poke at enemies while building up forces to then attack along with superweapon. Especially useful in OPF since a well-placed SW strike = lotsa command points.
In that battle, the AI had completed its Strategy Center before I had my Tech Center up. While also swarming me with Crusaders and Avengers. Even for Hard AI resource cheats, that's too much IMO.
Other Hard AIs I'm able to beat, np. But the so far one time I played vs SOCOM AI so far, it was hopeless.
Still, might've been a one-time case, I play with AI set to random.

On a related-ish note, I think 4 minutes is too quick for the cluster ICBM, it hits roughly as hard as a (vanilla) GLA demolitions general Scud Storm on a similarly big area, yet recharges faster.
atm I main SOCOM, so it's handy. But still feels OP.

Oh! Edit while I'm on it: The China Secret Weapons general's superweapon takes my framerate to a crawl during the main impact, regardless of graphic settings.
Not sure why, it's the only SW to do that.

Yet another edit: As luck would have it, I got SOCOM AI from random just now. Went nuts just as it did before. Even got the offshore ship arty (also pictured) unlocked even though all combat to that point was me running a dozer over two rangers to prevent them capping an oil rig and the AI stomping two of my missile turrets with 10 or so tanks.

Excogitatoris-Logica @ Operation: Firestorm

Hey there. Been checking out what ZH mods have to offer, and I really like the balance between new content and comfy gameplay OPF has.
This is my go-to ZH mod, and I'm glad to see it's being actively developed.
With that in mind, I'm here to report what looks like the SOCOM Hard AI being a bit too insane. I know RTS AI is practically expected to resources cheat its way into higher difficulties, but... Cdn.discordapp.com damn.
(the screenshot is on the AI's base, I'm the cyan player :c)
On a related note, the map is Central Station, from the RTOR map pack. It has mirror resource piles and no oil derricks, thus why I'm sure the AI couldn't have gotten THAT many resources legit.
inb4 map has a trolly RTOR-specific script that went berserk in OPF...

Excogitatoris-Logica @ Cowspiracy is Bull?

Guess I'll just explicitly state why vegans bother me:
Because of the "don't fix, destroy" mentality towards animal farming.
There's so many things going wrong yet granted the possibility of improvement, why this unexplained exception towards animal farms?
With the information available to me, it makes no sense. Either I'm missing something pretty big or it's just plain old unreasonable.

Excogitatoris-Logica @ Cowspiracy is Bull?

So in a nutshell, the USA is massively wasteful on the management of cattle. Not really surprising, it's 'murica after all.

Now, vegans bother me.
Not because I disagree, cattle is treated in horrible ways no living creature should be treated. Plus, poor management of meat, dairy and similarly animal-derived industries are a massive resource loss at long term. That much I can see and wholly agree with.

What bothers me is how improving the cattle industry (so it's actually efficient, its products properly checked for risks in human consumption, and so on) doesn't seem to cross anyone's mind.
Why it MUST be shut down? I refuse to even consider it can't be improved. A process that wasteful is most likely riddled with stuff lacking optimization.

Excogitatoris-Logica @ Conservatives, Nationalists & New Right of ModDB

I'm normally strongly against "taking a side" if I don't have to.
In most cases it's not because it's what I'd like to do, but because I'd rather not deal with people who disagree bitching at me.
In a nutshell: Avoid making enemies just to not deal with people being a nuisance.

Then again, it's been a very long time since I've last seen THIS MUCH stuff making sense AND so close to each other.
TheUnbeholden I'm glad I made an impression good enough to warrant an invite. My social skill is lacking at best, so usually I can only guess what others see about me.

To be fair, the Mayans didn't "predict the apocalypse", they had a calendar system for up to 2012. Nothing unfixable.
Much like the dreaded Y2K, it'd only take an update for it to continue functioning.

I could never figure out the logic behind hating anime for being anime.
It's like saying ALL western live action movies are bad. In both cases there's way too much variety to put all of them in the same quality standard.

At anyone hating anime overall. I twin linked multidare you to watch ANY series from the following, and say with a straight face all anime's bad. You may pick any:
Cowboy Bebop, Psycho-Pass, Fullmetal Alchemist, Steins;Gate, Death Note, Shingeki no Kyojin (aka Attack on Titan), Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex
There's more ofc, but that list would be massive.
Unless you hate animation as a concept, in that case... my condolences.
