interesting strategy!

Postby Tutorial_starting » Thu Oct 26, 2006 1:48 am

let "everyone die" - by displaying dialog box "Preparing - Tutorial starting" for hours, without anything furtherly happening.
Do Defcon developers really believe people die by being bored in a nuclear war??? They rather die by being BLOWN UP, not by being BORED!
Maybe developer team should learn English at first...

Yes, that was their plan. But not for everyone, just you.

The developers hate you soooo much that they specially made your copy of the game. Just to mess with your head.

Because they knew that all their false-advertising, with the gameplay pics and the descriptions of strategy and tactical control and eerie music would draw you in.

Fact is, this entire adventure, all the other players and the publishing of the game and the actual development of the game itself, including all the websites and advertising and so on and so forth, were really just an elaborate ruse to draw you in, get you to pay money for the game, just so they could piss you off with an endless loading screen.

And you fell for it.

Now, I wasn't privy to all the details, of course, but I think their dastardly plan also involved trying to get you to use ill-written and grammatically suspect english to imply that they didn't know english very well.

It's amazing how well their schemes have worked out.

Do not trust anyone who rants about something with only 1 post. Odds are they won't bother replying. :)

Sensibility suggests this should have been posted to the troubleshooting forum, but yeah, the following usually does prove true...

Should Tutorial_starting feel the need to find out why his defcon doesn`t work, may I suggest he post in the above mentioned forum, not making pithy comments about the devs (always guaranteed to get a virtual slapping) and, ironically, before commenting about anyone`s use of english, may I also cheekily suggest he himself learns basic english grammar?

What? I think that the Defcon developers are rather capable with English.

That was quite a hard opening post, took me a few re-reads to understand what the hell you were on about. ;)
