Post: RE: Blitz tips

It *sounds* reasonable that blitz would help standard time play, but it is well known that playing blitz chess does not help much if at all with regular chess. It just does not lead to much if any im...

Maybe I'm too cynical, but when someone starts a thread like this I always assume they are trying to figure out who to hit on. "Wow, great move! What are you wearing?" "You are too smart, clever a...

Its weird to me because 50% of folks seem to like this better than Hero Academy, but Hero Academy has 50,000 gamecenter folks with their new (6th team). For the sixth team alone, not counting non-gam...

27-4 against is more than a knee jerk reaction against change; most people just dont think its a good idea. Alex & Adam have to put their own opinion over that of the masses to some degree, but...

Just to clarify, I dont think its the biggest deal in the world. I do think it map undercut the FTA correction when overall data is examined post-patch. Sure, it helps the defender at times. But on...

@Adma/Alex: Interesting data, but I dont think it really establishes much of anything. You wouldnt expect the winner to get a ton more +wits on average, as on single spawn maps, getting two extra ki...

I've stated my rational elsewhere: on certain maps, it helps the attacker, because the limiting factor is the initial wits to strike the first blow. The defender, with 2 or in some cases 3 fewer uni...

Uniwar is graphically ugly and has some severe balance issues, but its really fun nevertheless. And it also has a fully fleshed out ranking system built in. It is the cheapest similar game to get al...

I dunno, the thorns might be worth one wit as is if you could build more, more quickly, with a more modest sunk cost. The sunk cost of 9 is just insanely too high for what it does. 7, + move +root, ...

Yeah, I'm enthused about the concept, it just needs some buffs of some kind to be viable and competetive with the other specials.

Post: Is it Possible to Void Bugged Games?

Apparently, Beta version 1.1 had some bleed over into the normal version, and this is fixed in Beta 1.2. It appears that in a 2 v 2 non-beta game, I inadvertently "cheated" by using the extra wits gi...

Scrambler, Mobi and Bombshell can win games as is, but do not always do so. They seem roughly balanced to me. Maybe one is generally a little better, or not, but its close enough that it probably va...
