    Originally thought my friend was trolling me until I saw the trailer and now I'm pretty excited.  Graphics look a little cartoony but hopefully they are placeholder textures.  I'm also pretty sure Chaos will be in the game but not playable in the campaign.  I mean, thousands of bodies falling into a huge pile that looks to be in some sort of shrine or well seems kinda chaos-y.  I'm also glad Gabriel Angelos is back as he's just a boss.

    I still can't find out how to look at my notifications or messages while on mobile, which is a problem as that's what I use 90% of the time I check the forums.  A get a little red dot with a 1 saying I need to look at something but I have no idea where to go to look at what needs my attention.  Very frustrating.  I click on the "menu" with the red dot and it's just things like managing my account and what not.

    I actually try to use grammar properly when posting online so I can avoid picking up any bad habits that may transfer over, which would make it harder for me to write research papers and business emails.
    Examples of what I mean:
    -using single letters to represent whole words (u instead of you)
    -run-on sentences
    -lack of clarity when referring to something
    -jumping around topics
    People are judged by their posts, as that's the only information other users can judge them on. Posting nonsense and incoherent things makes people view the poster as incoherent as well.
    That would have been quite the interesting topic.

    All about the money. Why put effort and money into something you know will be bad anyways?
    They sell the movie on name alone, put no effort in which reduces expenses, and they have a higher profit margin.
    I think the best way to do something like that would be to have a story in the same universe as the game, but not directly follow the protagonists so the fans image of them isn't ruined but a lot of it looks familiar enough to get that excitement going.
    As for the movie of DOOM, the scene that was in first person with the chainsaw was an awesome nod to the source material.

    Im sure you mean E1M1 right? I was reading your comment and went to youtube to put the song on and found this.
    Fucking badass. If it doesnt make me want to pump some iron, grab a machine gun, go to hell and kill hordes of demons, I tell you.
    My random thought is that I recently started up the free to play Magic Duels Origins after quickly dropping it after launch mid last year and it hasnt changed a bit. Its still going full money grabbing jew pay to win and there has only been one update, WoTC arent even supporting it. Blizzard with Heartstone is blowing WoTC the fuck out in the digital TCG space and they still refuse to cut it out on the aggressive monetization? Why? You created MTG so youre the big badass WoTC? Its even worse for their for MTG Online service, they treat is as if youre buying actual real cards, so stupid.
    Good thing that shit like MTG Forge and Cockatrice exist, best way to get into digital Magic by far. You just download the programs, doesnt cost a dime, has most cards, for Cockatrice you can play with other people and they update the sets, it stays current.

    Hello Gods, Deities, and Mythical Creatures!
     
    This topic is to organize our more competitive SMITE players on Xbox One and provide an easy way to que up and bring great glory to the Angry Army Xbox Division!  With Season 3 of Ranked Play now upon us, the time is ripe for us to make our presence known!
     
    To be eligible for Ranked Play, you must meet a few in-game criteria:
    1) Profile level is at 30 - Simply get enough XP to reach level 30.
    2) God Mastery:
    ->Conquest Ranked: you must have mastery level 1 or higher on 18 or more owned gods (Rented and free weekly gods do not count).
    ->Joust Ranked: you must have mastery level 1 or higher on 16 or more owned gods (Rented and free weekly gods do not count).
    ->Duel Ranked: see Joust rules above.
     
    There are 5 Tiers that players are assigned to:
    Qualifying - Bronze - Silver - Gold - Platinum - Diamond - Grandmaster
    Each tier has 5 sub-ranks within them.  You move up sub-ranks and eventually move on to higher tiers as you play well and win, but losing matches may drop you down a sub-rank.  (Note: I don't think you can actually drop down a tier by losing).
     
    Notes:
    -In Ranked Play, you may only play as the gods you have gotten to at least mastery level 1.
    -You may que up as an individual, or in parties of 2 or 3 only.
    -Players queuing up together must be within 1 tier of each other (ex. a Silver Player may play with Bronze and Gold players, but not higher)
    -Players still in the qualifying stage may que up with players that are ranked as Bronze, Silver, or Gold.
     
    Rewards (Apart from glory):
    For playing Ranked games, players can earn free exclusive character skins, in game currency, and other customization options!

    In case you, or anyone else whos checking this, still requires tips:
    The way the balance is setup is so that the movie tie in races are balanced to each other.
    CIS are early game dominant with damn good trade research capabilities.
    The requblic and alliance are about shields and defense.
    The empire is about doing a stupid amount of damage. (Im thinking of the executioner class here)
    The vong are just the vong. They have no shields and are a later game power, much like the empire in many regards.
     
    What you want to do is you want to get you cap ships up as the empire, then you need to look through your ships and find ones with useful abilites.
    In this mod it is focus quite alot on fighters and bombers so early game spam cap ships to take places, then once you find the CPU spam anti-fighter craft.
     
    For the empire it is a balance between getting enough cap ships, having the firepower to kill enemy frigate with those cap ships, and having the frigates to kill their fighters. All buying time for your eventual supremacy once you build the executioner.
    Make sure you understand which cap ships have good abilities and auras, always having more than one of a good aura so you dont lose it completely if you lose that ship.
    Always focus down the enemy cap ships: this removed their fighters, abilities and due to multiple banks of weapons, your cap ships will target other things anyway.
     
    All ships have different uses, so just make sure you are building ones that either have the most damage, or are useful for your fleet tactics.
     
    Getting trade up is more important early game than getting military tech so unlock those as priority. Always leave a slot for trade. And once on front lines, always have a influence building in your ship building planet and your front line ones.
     
     
    Oh and lots of races have research that reduces tech costs and time, so make sure you do those FIRST. Unless you require something before that.
    There is also the strategy of moving your cap planet to one of the super resource worlds so that you get that additional extraction rate.
     
    For some fleets you can literally spam cap ships and cruiser carriers. Just make sure the fleet you are facing off against doesnt have many anti fighters.
     
    For the difficulty setting you pick, make sure you dont go too high, as the CPU gets bonus rates on everything, meaning that they build faster, conquer worlds with those ships, then get the increased income from those places anyway adding to the difficulty.
     
    The other thing is to build fortresses, or uber defensive platforms where lots of lines reach. Dont expand from there unless you are ready to fight.
    Sometimes having 3 fleets is better, sometimes 2, sometimes you just need to death stack.
    Tax comes quick, minerals dont come as fast, prioritise those. 
     
    Once you get an executioner you are set to go. Always try to bait the ai into attacking you in one of your own planets. Preferably one that has a crapload of defensive platforms.

    The only 3 games I think really gave me that sense are Skyrim, Witcher 3, and when I first played the Mass Effect series. Honourable mention would be the Stick of Truth.
  15. Apex Spartan liked a post in a topic by Chumbry42 in Battlefield 5 will be set in WWI???   
    Gameplay wise, I'd prefer a WW2 game as it was much more dynamic, a bit more weapon variety, and some better vehicles. It was just a more mobile and dynamic war. Plus I haven't played a good one since WaW although I have heard Red Orchaestra is quite good too.
    While WWI would be interesting, I just feel the gameplay would be a bit boring: Charge across no man's land, get blown/shot up. Respawn in friendly trench, wait for enemies to charge, mow them down like grass. Repeat.
    Also Bi-Planes aren't the most useful close air support craft and the tanks of WWI were pretty slow.

    Semi angry rant (tm ) coming-up; 
     
    I saw this thread a while back, and it took me until now even to open it and read what it was about because i've seen similar threads on other gaming boards and community sites before  thinking it was made with nothing more than pure agitation in mind.
     
    But in this case I was wrong and I wish to apologize to the person who started this thread. And while I still can't understand why make on in the first place I guess it was made to achieve some hidden meaning i've yet to discover.
     
    This is because every time i've read one of these threads i've gotten a feeling like i'm having a noose tied around my neck and it feels like i'm chocking. Some of the replies i've seen [ on other game boards ] have been downright so idiotic they made me sick to my stomach just by reading them.
    Sometimes I get a feeling after reading one of those so called " clever " posts is that all I should be doing is to blog about clothes, make-up and fashion trends instead of games or anything remotely related to gaming.
     
    That girls, or women have no right to write anything about these things let alone play a computer game at all.
    This kind of behavior coming especially from young adults is horrifying, and borders on misogyny.
    And the irony is, afterwards these same people write another post asking for advice about how to get a girlfriend, or how to ask one out.
    Gee, first you step on women and then you want one?? 
     
    I've met discrimination and alienation in World of Warcraft. Joined a nice guilt once only to be isolated and bad mouthed on after rejecting the advances of a
    guild  master who earlier was the nicest person you've ever known. Before these so called advances began. Not much you can do after that  other than leave the
    guild and be alone once again. So yeah, i've met a few of these so called " nice guys " online, but then turned out to be something quite the opposite.
    Anyway, lastly i'm going to add a short story I once wrote about a slightly semiliar subject, and share it with you. It's based on a personal
    experience.

                                                                                                      X Darko.
     
    " This happened on a day when the hot sun was basking down brightly from a azure blue sky and there wasn’t a single cloud floating in the horizon.   I arrived in early July, to a small unnamed town which was sweltering from a severe heatwave which had plagued it for weeks now and with no end in sight.   So its citizens were forced to remain either indoors or in shade seeking shelter from the heat with only a brave few challenging the nearly empty streets and parking lots which sat between the tall concrete buildings.   This was a good thing for someone who wished to remain anonymous and to stay hidden from prying eyes.   I was one of those few brave people, and i made my way towards the local game store breathing in the street dust which billowed up from behind the passing vehicles like a miniature dust storms every time a car or a truck rumbled by ,causing my eyes to become itchy.   For i was on a quest. On a much higher calling, and it demanded me to brave the streets and the sun above me like a noble knight in a desert, on a quest to recover the Holy Grail from its fabled resting place.   The first thing i noticed when i entered the small store through the closed front door was the strong smell of sweat which hit me like a breath of hot air, straight across my face like a noxious cloud.  ” The smell of geekdom ”, i though to myself while politely ignoring the painful but obvious scent which nearly had swept me off my feet and forced me to back out to the street as i navigated between the numerous shelves which made the entire front of the store towards the back where the counter was, smiling as i passed by the numerous store denizens lurking like ravens behind and between the shelves.   This was to be expected.   It was then i began to feel the eyes of the these denizens turning towards me from all around. From between the shelves, and from behind the shelves they all slowly turned towards me, only to shun away if i shifted my eyes towards theirs. Ultimately the smell of sweat was easily forgotten as i now began to feel like an alien who was being scrutinized or judged for something i had done. A burning question rose from the depths of my mind.   Did they know? Did the suspect why i was here?   I stopped and then slowly turned around to see if there was a large man sized rabbit following me around like the protagonist in a movie called Donnie Darko, as i felt like i had just entered some strange Darko dimension. But no. This wasn’t the case. This was more the case of X Darko.   It was like i wasn’t supposed to be in the store at all. Like i was from an another planet. And only because i had two bumps on my chest.   I had clearly wandered into the wrong store. They sold games here, like Resident Evil and Call of Duties. And also strange appliances called consoles which you plug into a television and you use a controller to operate. They didn’t sell any shoes, make-up or hair care products in here! What was i doing in here? And the posters on the walls advertised upcoming game releases and not the personal hygiene product every girl needs when her cycle hits.   ” The legend must be true. ”, i though for myself next as i quickly glanced at the clerk and his bushy neck beard thinking that maybe he should trim it a bit before it takes over his otherwise handsome features like a overgrown jungle.   I mean, of course he had to have a neck beard. It comes with the territory doesn’t it? I was in a game store after all.   ” One World of Warcraft prepaid card please. ”, i ask the clerk behind the counter who then proceeded by removing a 60-days prepaid game card from under the glass counter he was jealously guarding and then afterwards accepted my money in a sullen silence while managing not to utter a single world from his mouth during the entire time.   Probably thinking i was buying the game card for my boyfriend.   ” Sorry partner. This one´s all for me. I so love seducing myself with a session of World of Warcraft. ”, i though as i kept staring at the jungle on his neck in a nearly hypnotic fashion.   I might as well been in the old West with all ´em beardy and unwashed cowboys. Those strong and silent desperado's of the Wild West. All that was missing was a horse and a Saloon.   I thanked the clerk and got a low sound reminiscent of a grunt in return.   ” Time to return to my space ship. ”, i though as i made my way back to the door.   My ” visitation ” was over and only moments later on a parking lot, just blocks away from the store i beamed myself up to my ship and   began my flight towards my Homeworld.

    Probably because, biologically, an organisms sole purpose is to survive long enough to reproduce and pass on it's genes. That's about it.
    More intelligent creatures such as ourselves find our own individual purposes to motivate us on top of our basic biological purpose.
