Typical. It's twisted, sick, and evil - what shall we call it?
Black humour. :evil: This racism offends me.

4 way dom on Monument to the Heavens, and my teammate and I pull off the perfect strategy, each of us doing just enough to hold our spawns, whilst simultaneously rushing for a smaller island each, and hitting each other's island-mates from the rear. I got unlucky, in that I had to fight for about 5 ...

Eggs as defender on Assault when those generators look like they're lost = priceless. Abandon them, let the Virii defend them, and if you get a Soul Destroyer, drop to your knees and worship Sepulveda.

If you can drop the resolution(haven't ever felt the need to myself), that usually gives about a 10-15% frame rate increase for most games. Running it at 800x600 in a window might help. And try dropping the sound quality to free up some CPU and memory space. Also - yes, that is below the min spec. Y...

I never rage-quit. I've had to drop out once because of a bug where if you're using a laptop touchpad, and ALt-Tab out for longer than about 10 seconds, teh mouse stops responding and just pulls to the top left corner endlessly, but I never rage-quit. Even when I get hit with Dark Forest, Nuke, and ...

You say just kidding, but that is probably what would happen. Darwinia would become a breeding ground for an intelligent AI virus that teh US could use to destroy computer networks anywhere in the world.

File_Editor - Oh noes! Uplink player has found his way into the battlefield, and is fiddling with stuff! Everyone's power-ups are removed, shuffled, and distributed randomly amongst all players (including retributors). This is a big risk/reward crate - if you have a armour or a turret you don't want...

Rules of War?

I'm lucky enough to go to a college with an excellent nerd/emo/chav ratio (about 1:1:1, as opposed to most London colleges, which have 1:1:5), and I have about 10 friends who also own Multiwinia, and we play it pretty much every lunchtime in Starbucks over the WiFi. But I digress slightly. Over the ...

I got a meteor shower, a nuke barrage, and a Dark Forest all in one start-up once.
Took 1 AI player down after 31 seconds, and fucked the other one over with the Dark Forest so badly he could never get enough troops together to oppose me. Then I napalmed him. Mmmm... napalm.

I think if the military had taken over the Darwinians, things would be much more rigorously chain-of-command than they are.
The U.S. Army wouldn't settle for "mob" or "formation".

If the devs don't plan to add Co-Op mode, I'd hope they at least iron out these issues so players can create their own.

They always start at teh same AI level - it looks like they share teh MWGs AI behaviour, but tweaked to account for their entry mode and the FWGs perma-subvertas.

The Futurewinians may be trying to end war, but they still have that code flaw present in the original DWGs that caused them to become the Multiwinians. Order v Chaos works well as an analogy, because though the FWGs intentions are honourable, and entirely worthy, they have no way to carry them out ...
