It takes me a couple minutes to download a 6 meg file. And I play fine online and can host at least 6 players no problem. Of course even a couple minutes is not much at all for the occasional times that I download a new mod.

Wiki article on Forum Etiquette

I took it on myself to write some tips on forum etiquette on the wiki. The idea is to give people tips on effective communication that they will want to use to help them get better results out of what they post, as opposed to trying to impose rules on them. http://spring.clan-sy.com/wiki/Forum_Etiqu...

I have 5 replays in my folder. But 3 of them are downloaded replays. And one of them is only 3kb because of crash at start up.

So really only 1 game. I spammed fleas and lost for some reason. Small consolation for the loss was managing to kill a penetrator with a zipper :D.

After thousands of years of nano spray, plasma and flash spam core and arm battled to a standstill. Supplies were low on both sides. K-bot joints were creaking. D-guns were rusting. No one negotiated a cease fire. No one even really wanted a cease fire. But somehow it just happened. Well briefly at ...

Can't I express a frustration without it being whining? If I'm whining about com rushers then everyone else is whining about someone who thinks that com rushing is not fun and dared to state that. So why is it that if I make a simple statement that com rushing is not fun, half a dozen people aggress...

^^ And in what way do any of the last three posts adress my point that com rushing in a team game makes it less fun for most of the players? The com rusher and the one or maybe two who have the chance to counter the com rush get to exercise skill to influence the result of the game. Everyone else in...

Com rushers take the fun out of a short game. Translation: "I don't know how to counter a com rush" Well besides being an incorrect quotation, you have jumped to an incorrect conclusion. I think I am reasonably proficient at countering com rushes. Although I could probably be better. I th...

Hardcore porcers. The only players that are more annoying than com rushers. Hardcore porcers take the fun out of a long game. Com rushers take the fun out of a short game.

It is quite possible for the probability of statement X being made will approach a fixed number between 0 and 1 as the length of the conversation approaches infinity. At least theoretically anyway.

Kbots are cooler than vehicles. And core kbots are cooler than arm kbots. But it seems that in BA the more a unit looks and feels cool, the more they nerf it. I guess its all in the name of balance. Except the krog, that unit is so un-cool it could melt a millenium on the other side of a 20x20 map. ...

How about a 'try something new day'. Say first weekend each month anyone who is interested in trying something different such as Gundam makes an effort to host or join a non BA game. That might make it easier for people who are curious about other mods to find a game. Other totally untested ideas on...

I was playing one of those really small FFA games once and two coms blew up early. I then built one of those land based torpedoe launcher over the hole with two com wrecks. Sure enough someone came to reclaim it but I only got one shot off before he was smart enough to get out again.......
