Too bad PC gaming is so expensive

Fine by me, that way when I play a game I don't have an 8 year old screaming at me like I did when I played on my 360. Generally I find the community to be considerably older and more mature than consoles which is well worth the additional costs.

Of all the places to argue this point, it isn't in a thread dedicated to a free AAA game.

Okay, how about this. I find LoL more difficult than DotA.:?

How so? Summoner spells?

That and the bush/brush mechanic. It what separates LoL from DotA or vice-versa.

It's weird that people still bring up the stupid SW metagame, considering the fact that the spreadsheet hasn't even been updated in well over a year. Why should anyone play by the rules if no one is gonna bother keeping tally?

I really need to get back to this. I only played the tutorial. But for some reason I have this mental block in trying to start games like Dota 2 or Starcraft 2 online.PannicAtack

 

I know what you mean. I too have just done the tutorial and I predict myself doing atleast 100 bot games before I contemplate pvp.

[QUOTE="Vaasman"]

That's because you joined after the discussions on how the rules would work were held. Do you think people just stuck the rules up there for no reason? That shit isn't just something that gets ignored as much as you wish it was, it's the metric for our little metagame that was decided by the community. Don't like it? Don't play. Don't talk about ownage or AAAE's or what does and does not count because you aren't a part of any of it.

Vaasman

Please answer the questions I posted or stop responding to me. You look like a damn fool. 

Sorry but it happened before you or I were around actually. That picture doesn't mean shit. This happened before the generation started. I was still a lurker at the time. lol. Nice try. You should ask Casey more about it, he's the one who oversaw most of it.

And you literally have no point so there's nothing to answer. The only possible way you have any shred of a chance at being correct, is by eliminating every single possible scale by which we would judge the vailidity of the game. The only thing still pushing you along is your worthless, laughable opinion.

Also I'm pretty sure you said you weren't going to respond to me, but it seems you were too butthurt to stay out of it lol.

Why don't think at least one post ahead before hitting submit? How could you possibly know when something like this was established when you weren't even here? Everything you have wrote is pure assumption and your basing it on one singular post. If you actually have some solid proof, feel free to link to it, until then saying "go talk to Casey" is embarrassing. 

senses_fail_06

What would be the point of finding any proof? Even if I spend the time on google that would find the thread where this was voted on, you'd just say it's too old or irrelevant or any other manner of bullshit that you can craft to pretend it doesn't exist, because you're a child and you can't admit how wrong you are.

:lol: Love this excuse. You've been lurking for at least over 2 years and 3 months (at the absolute minimum to even have any credibility) and while doing so you've been acquainting and embedding yourself in SW politics? 

senses_fail_06

It's not about being "embedded," it's about having read this shit long enough to know that the rules system that is in play didn't spring up from someone's ass one day.

I've changed my stance. You are so ignorant I will expose every single one of your posts to reveal just how dumb you really are.

senses_fail_06

Yea right. All you're going to do is continue to look like a pissy jackass because you know how right I am about this game. You can only cry be butthurt about it, you have no actual stance to the contrary. Nothing to support you but your tears.

If it's so obvious, I would have sworn you would have dished up some proof by now :lol:

 

So are you just blind or are you challenged? I've shown you multiple ways how this game counts, and all you could do is be butthurt and say everything was irrelevant. It's like a toddler when you show them 2+2=4 and all they can counter with is "NU UH."

Yea, cry more baby. I love your sadness.

One mistake? No need to exaggerate man. :P I remember making some fail hooks as pudge once when I had lag issues, one guy on my team totally raged when i hooked him instead of the enemy lol. That was probably the worst I've encountered, I never get reported!

You sound like a little bitch :lol: 

You know, I actually checked. I literally had to go all the way back just because you're that much of a dick. I spent something like 15 minutes wading through gamespot's atrocious format to find it. Unfortunately, Gamespot's format change means almost all of the posts and threads before 2006 have been removed :? best stuff I can find is:

http://systemwarsmagazine.com/2008/09/18/history-of-gamespots-system-wars-board/ A brief history of system wars (only includes vague references to anything that happened.)

All mention the concept of the A-AA-AAA titles, flops, and hype. No mentions whatsoever of what games do and do not count.

But, since it is literally impossible to prove the point, I am willing to concede on it.... So long as you are willing to admit that F2P games count ;). You might as well, PS4 and Xbox One will both be getting F2P titles. They are as structured and well designed as any paid game. They are all received by the general gaming community and by the press, so you'll be accepting it, whether it's with your mind or your asspains. There is absolutely nothing to support any argument to the contrary.

Christ, I hope you didn't just spend an hour of your life compiling a list of SW welcome guides. None of which cover the topic at hand, none of which are considered binding, none of them are followed, and none of them are even what Casey was talking about.

I know a lot of people on SW play dumb and like to troll. Either you're the best actor on these forums I've ever seen or you are, perhaps, the dumbest user to grace SW in years.

No, I said 15 minutes to search the entire forum. Compiled those in 10 seconds of google. The rest of the time I was playing WoW to cap my valor for the week.

So if I'm so far off the point, then what even is the point? Do you even know? Could you possibly even tell me? Because as far as I can tell, I've been arguing that F2P counts, and all you've been doing is saying I'm wrong, or my proof is irrelevant, or that nothing counts but what you want. so why don't you fill me in, oh great sage of being a nightmarishly dickish person. What is the the topic at hand?

Edit: Or should we slow the conversation down below the level of forum posting so your simian mind can tackle each approaching point one subject at a time?

It was stated that the community had decided.

I questioned that.

You said it's because I wasn't here. Then surely, we could find something that could confirm it. Unfortunately, you've yet to do so.

Now I sit here, waiting for you to post something of some relevance regarding a topic that you've already said cannot be proven.

 

This is especially funny when you consider that you just got done asking me what the point was. 

:lol:

You're a dumbass. And I don't mean that in a haha way, I think you're seriously pretty damn stupid. 

I think you keep calling me a dumbass because you're just desperate to keep the actual subject out of the light. The threads that date that far back no longer exist, so using your logic, that means you can't prove it didn't exist, so therefore, it is a valid point. The fact that rules threads even exist means I have something to base my judgement off of, yet you, once again, have nothing. Where did those threads come from then, if it wasn't a community decision, or even a moderator decision at the very least, hmm? Why are they even posted if none of that matters for anything here?

Furthermore, this is all just pathetic blather to distract from the real, original point, which you have yet to have an ounce of defense for, which is your stance that F2P does not count. I couldn't give less of a shit at this point whether or not you think the rules of system wars have any weight, because the bottom line is you're flat out wrong even when we move onto other, more reasonable metrics. But of course, like the dickhole that you are, those don't count either, right? So what if the very website we post on reviews them all on the same scale as other titles? So what if they are reviewed by dozens of other websites? So what if some of them count as the most played games available? None of that counts for anything in your eyes, right? So what scale should we use then, hmm? Whichever one you pick? What would that be I wonder?

So you can call me a dumbass all you want, but the only conclusion that I figure can come from any of this is that you know I'm right. Guess it hurts too much to admit though.
