Man, I have 3 friends on steam now. Must be how it feels to be one of the popular kids in high school, right?




Also I just bought Civ 3 because it was cheap and I've never played Civ.

Civ is for a very particular kind of player, but if you are that type it seems to be like heroin.

It's not really for me. I can enjoy it well enough, but it's a little too slow.

I figured out how to get it to 1920x1080

Then I started playing.






I think I should've played through the tutorial firt because I had no ******* clue what was going on or what I was doing. Smiley: lol

When I was going through Basic, we had one guy that had gone through JROTC that was absolutely hilarious. He was standing at attention for our DI, and then he would move to parade rest every time he would say something to the DI, then move back to standing at attention. He did this at least 4 or 5 times while I was going through the line at the mess hall.

Yeah, if you've never played Civ before you need to do the tutorial. Also, they change stuff so much between the games it's a good idea to do it when you start a new one too. I played Civ 4 pretty heavily, but I still did the tutorial when I got Civ 5 because they changed so many things.

You guys can send me friends requests on Steam too. Username there is the same as here. And I already have like 7 or 10 Steam friends, so therefore I am more popular than Aeth! Smiley: grin

I am the worst DOTA 2 player in the history of time. I'm pretty sure playing LoL has only made me worse, since the lane layouts are different, tower ranges are longer and (most importantly) creep AI doesn't work the same way.

That said...

You were like Federal Way-ish or something right?

There were 3 good places in North Seattle that I remember trying at some point. Only one was actually a coffee place, one was chocolate shop (why wouldn't they make an excellent mocha ya?) and the other was a bakery. Had friends who were really anti-starbucks though, so that helped. Smiley: lol

Kirkland, actually. Opposite of Fed Way.

I liked 4 a lot more than 3. Civ3 didn't have 'stack-breakers' IIRC, so you get these giant armies of like 30 units moving around the maps. Civ4 gave a counter to those and the game returned to being more spread out and tactical again.

Skeleton King, eh?

There's a very useful guide for new players to Dota, called "Welcome to Dota, You Suck." Definitely worth a read.

And since you're playing SK, check out the CAPS LOCK LEORIC GUIDE. It's hilarious. And informative!

Feel free to hit me up with any questions you've got if you're wondering about something.

I've also been trying Tidehunter. Though I've been having trouble using him. The people in my games like to feed the enemy carries, and the support like to go for last hits. Smiley: glare I think I may just practice with a jungler for a while, until I get the hang of DOTA's differences.

Yeah, I can understand that. Give the bot games a try if you haven't already, they can be a lot more forgiving for when you're just getting the hang of things.

Edit: and as far as junglers go, I'd recommend Lifestealer or Axe. The others usually require some micro, which might be a little overwhelming. Lifestealer is easy to play and straightforward, Axe is just manly as **** and a ton of fun.

I'll be sure to do that.

Here's a question: does whether or not a hero is Dire or Radiant actually mean anything? Are there game modes that actually restrict heroes to one side or the other or something? Or is it just an aesthetic kind of thing?

Civ4 was €20, Civ 3 €5 and since I'm not entirely sure that I'll like the game, this seemed a smarter thing to do Smiley: tongue

It's left over from the old WC3 days. In the earliest days, the hero you could choose was actually restricted to faction, but these days it's just for flavor. So you can be ******* Lucifer himself (Doom) and be fighting for the sparkly and nature oriented Radiant.

Edit: There is apparently still a gamemode that restricts heroes to sides like that, but most of the game modes aren't in the beta yet.

I've actually had to do that at work twice now. Same guy. If I was inclined to be sociopathic at all, he'd be in some serious sh*t.
As nothing more than a scholastic exercise, let's see how many of Dale Carnegie's leadership rules you broke:

Be a Leader

22. Begin with praise and honest appreciation. broken in half
23. Call attention to people’s mistakes indirectly. oh so very broken
24. Talk about your own mistakes before criticizing the other person. broken
25. Ask questions instead of giving direct orders. ???
26. Let the other person save face. bee-roken
27. Praise the slightest improvement and praise every improvement. Be “hearty in your approbation and lavish in your praise.” broken
28. Give the other person a fine reputation to live up to. ---
29. Use encouragement. Make the fault seem easy to correct. broken in pieces
30. Make the other person happy about doing the thing you suggest. broken (no, suggesting that he couldn't guess which way an elevator was going if he had two guesses was not a valid suggestion)

O.K., so rule number 25 is questionable since it doesn't seem you gave any orders. And rule number 28 can go either way, since we still haven't decided if your reputation is something we want people to live up to.

Not bad, all in all.

Civ III was a pretty good game. Did you get all the ex-pacs with it? If not, play the Persians, bee line for iron and do an early blitz with Immortals. If you wipe out your nearest neighbor you pretty much won the game.

And if you play long enough for the AI to develop, always be prepared for a giant stack of doom to land on an adjacent coastal tile to one of your cities. Also - workers and lots of them for the long game.

Was the oracle-bureaucracy gambit Civ III or Civ IV? I don't remember. Great game though. One more turn . . .

23. Call attention to people’s mistakes indirectly. oh so very broken
24. Talk about your own mistakes before criticizing the other person. broken
25. Ask questions instead of giving direct orders. ???
26. Let the other person save face. bee-roken
27. Praise the slightest improvement and praise every improvement. Be “hearty in your approbation and lavish in your praise.” broken
28. Give the other person a fine reputation to live up to. ---
29. Use encouragement. Make the fault seem easy to correct. broken in pieces
30. Make the other person happy about doing the thing you suggest. broken (no, suggesting that he couldn't guess which way an elevator was going if he had two guesses was not a valid suggestion)

O.K., so rule number 25 is questionable since it doesn't seem you gave any orders. And rule number 28 can go either way, since we still haven't decided if your reputation is something we want people to live up to.

Not bad, all in all.

When people constantly whine day in and day out and don't really do sh*t no matter how much I ask them nicely, they deserve whatever I throw at them. The few people that actually do work have actually taken me aside and thanked me for the two or three times I've done sh*t like that, because when 3/17 are doing 90% of the work, it gets irritating.

Seriously, I hate people like that. The lead barista (our manager who isn't technically a manager) at work is almost worse though. While she is in charge and does do a lot, there's also a lot of things that she doesn't do. Yet she has this attitude that she is some great manager and does all the things and we'd be lost without her. It's really ******* annoying. One of my biggest annoyances that she does is she orders too much of our products, and then doesn't face them properly in the stock room so we end up throwing stuff away because it expires. I hate waste. Like our sugar free syrups for example. Aside from the vanilla, we only go through about one bottle a month. Yet as soon as we bring a box down from the stock room, she orders a new one. Sometimes two... The boxes have four to six bottles in them, depending on the flavor, and if they don't get faced in the cabinet by the kiosk, they end up expiring and we have to throw them away. It doesn't directly cost me money, but it's the principle of the thing that bothers me.

Is that because you make them do pushups any time they think about complaining?
