Sorry, but city builds are for people who generally suck at RM.

RM is my #1, followed by my recent affection for fortblood. More particularly, Build-o-blood.

I just play old fashioned RM. All the scens suck because 1) the host edited it for his/her benefit 2) It sucks period or 3) no instructions

A while ago, if I was really bored, I'd play a round of this "city build" thing. Quite amusing really...

I remember there was this one scen I liked. It was called Beast Wars or somesuch. You spawned animals (like Nexu, Rancor, ect) and attacked.

There are 2 types of game on the zone: RM, and the ones I don't play. ;)

History lesson for the day.

City builds were once casual. The only triggers were for resources.
No disabled Air Cruisers. No hosts with super units. The games were fair.

Then some people got tired of getting smoked every game.

So they stole the main idea of the Senate games and gave themselves a few super units. Thus ending the point of city builds.

Then the old, better, versions of city builds turned into "Diplomacy" games. And they exist, rarely.

I'd like to know what exactly the point of a Senate game is. Seriously, what's the point? This is Battlegrounds. You're supposed to fight. And when you have a super powered host, you can RARELY win. All that happens is the host gets pissed when he says something like: "ooh, let's have a gay jedi council meeting!" And if you don't go, he toasts your planet. You really never have a chance. And it's sad people make games like that. It shows how bad they really suck and how much time and effort they have to put into a game to fix it so that they win.

let's not hate.

I back pbguy about the scenerios 100%. OK, I personally think that they are pointless, stupid, and typically tilted towards the host, but I feel that, since its your game, you can do what you damn well please. But, why I hate scenerios, and waged a war against them 2 years ago (literally), is cause they killed the community. GO BACK TO YOUR FREAKING ROOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Leave the RM room, and I dont care what you do. But as long as you stay there, you are ruining the game further, a game that I like a lot, so I take it as a personal offense.

Ditto to saberhagen's comment, BTW.

yea, they sorta did take over the rm room.

02-27-2004, 10:32 AM
Yeah, I remember one time there was a group of people try to get the scnes in the scen room.

the M+'s need to like make up a new rule about playing games in the correct rooms, and enforcing it, but I don't play on the zone much anymore, so I don't care that much.

02-28-2004, 12:43 AM
Its too late now. The M+'s needed to take a stand a year and a half ago, when everyone was clamoring for them to do so, and Gary Gaber had to make a personal plea to the fansites to help curb it.

The next SW RTS game should have it's own provider and a system like b.net or ESO (for the bliz haters), where the program finds games for you.

And the MP scenarios in SWGB are just horrible. I just don't understand how the decent RM games got overwhelmed by this crap.

02-28-2004, 09:27 PM
Not only that, if you have a in-game MP system, then the makers actually care about the game in question, and take actual steps to improve it and the online community (Hear that Zone? They dont spite certain games cause they weren't made by MS).

02-29-2004, 10:15 AM
Sometimes you even see M+s playing scenarios in the RM room!!!

the M+'s are a joke. what do they do other than chat watch?
they should be booting people in the rooms who have them locked so no one else can get them, and they should be booting the ppl in the rooms saying: "no game now, chat".

amen brotha.

They just gag people for using swear words which were automatically filtered out anyway, so shouldn't need any further action. Just because that's easy. It's like the police spending all their time screwing money out of motorists...

03-01-2004, 08:54 PM
not to go too off topic, but cops give motorists tickets to fill quotas. even though they say quotas dont exist.

I'd be careful with that M+ criticism. A certain high-up at this site, who does a lot of unappreciated work, just sits and monitors chats too.
