I agree. I wanted to just rant about a game i just had so please feel free to ignore this if you don't care. :) Host was W.O.P.R. game named "3v3" in genocide scoring mode. I was Europe and he was Russia, and we played a standard 3v3 game. I was doing ok, demolishing north africa and the e...

I agree with Nils... I am also colorblind (i.e. dichromat. Monochromats i.e. just B+W are extremely rare.) I have a hard time distinguishing yellow, green, and orange in the shades presented in the game. Sometimes going to the ally panel makes it easier to tell. Otherwise, I try to stick myself on r...

You could always turn off PermitDefections or have the host turn it off. You have to have your alliances set up in the lobby, but then you're sure they can't backstab (unless they bomb ally cities, in which case they lose points I think.) I did this a few times in a north vs. south game and it was v...

don't tease the irradiated You are correct. I would much rather nuke 'em 'til they glow, then shoot 'em in the dark. xander I think you meant to use "than" instead of "then" but the connotation of "nuke 'em 'til they glow" and then "shoot 'em in the dark" imp...

Good vid, nice way to separate parts of gameplay.

You let loose some serious whoop-ass on N. America!

Same here -- I tried to capture some gameplay but unfortunately the tools I was using kept flickering and the video was unacceptable. Now there is another chance, thanks vic!

How about McMurdo Station? Nukes are not very likely to hit you or even pass over you. It isn't even a target on the Defcon map!

Plus, it is very cool! Today a balmy -15 °F (-26 °C).

My first ever attempt at video editing - don't be too harsh please! =) http://ii.net/~bgorman/DEFCON_Grim.mov (or via YouTube if my ISP is too slow). Thanks to Toumaz for suggesting the shorter static and supplying some noise to go with the snow! (Not in YouTube version) I like the video. Good choi...

So that's the point here. The "scrubs" aren't really just casual players -- they're players who make excuses for losing. Even more "elite" experienced players do that. (I mean, Christ, have you ever played a round of Counter-Strike?) Unless you're a scrub you'll accept it when a...

It seems as if it is the author of the features who is advocating the mindset he so despises, as he is just as guilty of making up his own set of rules as are the "scrubs". I disagree with your analysis. Remember in Part 0 where he explains his motivations for writing the article. He writ...

I hosted a Zion (1 city) game and got 6 players and told everyone it was an experiment. They all played along but in the end everyone, and I mean everyone, had 0.0 million survivors, except Europe, which had -0.0 million survivors. Several people quit after they got hit the first time or two saying ...
