I wish Sims was even remotely realistic as opposed to the doll-house simulator it is. I often find myself yearning for a life simulator of sims-scale that actually attempts to do the concept justice.

It gives new players a chance to win and get better
It ensures players have to actually get better to avoid dying as often


The reasons I see for why people complain about sbmm is “it makes matches to sweaty”, “I just wanna play against scrubs”, “Its too hard” and half the time the complaints aren’t coming from the community of a pvp game it’s coming from people in the “above average” section of this image and there’s a good reason why that section is the most prone to bitching and complaining about sbmm.

For simplicity we’ll call them gold players. Golds are special because they’re not necessarily bad at a game just not great at it and because they understand the games mechanics to a degree where they can survive against pros it means that if sbmm were to be taken out that section of players would dominate most matches and most games would be artificially geared towards their victory. That shit is far more fucking toxic than dealing with players at your skill level, for new players it means they’ll constantly die over and over again and not be given a chance to get better due to the skill gap formed overtime as the population of a community of a game gets generally more skilled while for pros these people will become annoying as shit to put up with and no fun to kill because golds will be prone to bitching and whining about losing in any aspect due to having enough time invested into the game to feel as if they’re entitled to win every match. Skill based matchmaking does away with this shit because it ensures lobbies pair up players in away where everyone has some chance of winning instead of hoping RNG doesn’t assblast them with someone far above their skill level

And you should insult them! Valve screwed over the Artifact fanbase by cancelling the Artifact 2.0 beta without even allowing users to invite friends like they said they would in January 2021 and does not deserve your financial support for these gross consumer-unfriendly practices.

It’s like they say what Nintendo did and made the same game but made everything about it shittier. The only reason I can imagine anyone playing this is
<A: they’re too poor and lazy to just a switch and botw
<B: they’re retarded and have impulsivity problems
<C: both of the above at the same fucking time

See you don't even know what that word means yet you use it. My theory of you being stupider, younger, less experienced etc holds true once more. If you don't even understand the words you use. How can you expect me to value your opinion?

ok not literally 'universally', if i said 'it's universally regarded that eating shit tastes bad' I would technically be wrong, but regardless 99% of critics said it was good and probably at least 90% of games would agree it's a good game. you're just being a contrarian twat.

 No.19881

Fair enough. Your hyperbole is not meant to be taken literally. It's just ad populum then. It would have made more sense if you truly believed the word you were using rather than just you butchering the language purposefully. Again, if you've got something to say that's actually a response to my comment feel free to do so. I stand by what I said. If anything in it is wrong, feel free to attempt even an explanation on why it's wrong, rather than regurgitate conversation killers and argue in bad faith.

The easiest answer is the visuals

If I could describe diablo 2s visual design it would “minimalistic” the UI only shows the shit you actually need to know like exp, health, mana and that’s about it, the rest is shit you can toggle on and off like the map, your not bombarded with level up screens, or quest completed screens, or reward screens you get it nor are enemy death animations explosive besides the boss fights that actually matter. It makes the game feel easy to understand and to an extent it really is considering the difficulty for new players might be a little hard to get used to but it doesn’t change throughout the game so most don’t even notice it after a few minutes of playing not to mention art sound design makes everything even simpler and accessible to new players

sometimes I feel drowsy while playing it with a smile on my face because I can just sit down and grind, explore the map to discover caves or do whatever the fuck I please before closing the window and get back to whatever the hell I need to finish. Fucking great

And that’s about as convulted as it gets, that’s why so many fans of it could play it as children but somehow see the game as hardcore because you lose equipped items on death

Running a server is pretty easy, it just comes down to how far we wanna go with it. Do we just host a stock copy of /TG/station/some other branch, or do we wanna make our own custom shit?

Suppose I should copy the description too:
<Shiptest 13 is a fork of Space Station 13 (specifically /tg/station-whitesands code) centering around exploration of the universe. Gameplay takes place on ships, which can be flown in an "overmap" which represents areas you can travel in solar systems and beyond.

So many movement mechanics either got nerfed or patched completely makjng trying to maintain and increase your net velocity in the game a fucking pain in the ass or straight up impossible
So many of the old legends aren’t fun either, pathfinder is fucking useless at this point not only because of the cooldown on his grappling hook but also because you can’t keep the momentum on after each swing without using exploits, wraith is well.. not in a good place, most of the newer legends feel the same as the old ones and are either completely fucking broken or completely useless
There’s minimal accessibility to the point where it’s possible to get banned for using a custom crosshair along with the fact that you have to manually rewrite the games configuration files to get the settings you want like changing your fov to what pc gamers use like 120

You get the gist it wasn’t perfect but man something went wrong with the meta of this game

This was during the era of the vidya game moral panic. Hot Coffee and GTA4 drunk driving united uptight repubs and Hillary Clinton democrats in blaming video games for all of America's problems.

What games do leftypol play? I played through Stalker recently, I also like Deus Ex, Mount and Blade Warband, Dark Souls. I play supreme commander daily and generally enjoy strategy games.

Jesus fuck, it's already hard enough keeping the power station supplied but now it gets to the 20th November and everyone in the town instantly dies/escapes because I haven't set up heating yet. Fucking fuck. I even tried reloading to fix it and set up the heating but it didn't work and every building went to like 40% occupancy.

I guess I wasted a bunch of time/money/effort trying to set up building materials production when that shouldn't even be a priority at all. What the fuck am I gonna use all this cement/concrete/prefab blocks even for when I can't even keep the power on consistently. It doesn't help that the AI is retarded and people go on busses to nowhere and argh.

Okay, I reloaded a few months and undid the building materials industry, and focussed on heating, now things seem to be doing a lot better thankfully. I'm about to colonise the neighbouring village too for some extra workers, hopefully it won't be as hard since I already have power and I can shuttle them into my town for services.

Looks good, you are making me consider reinstalling. You should set up a railway to the border to export coal and eventually agricultural products
The game really is finicky though, I like to play on mountainous maps and it's a pain in the ass trying to build literally anything
