Mind Numbing Shit you Like

I play a lot of Minecraft and Civilization.

The thing I'm into most is professional wrestling. Anything from WWE, and TNA to CZW, Ring of Honor, and Japan Pro

Been into for a long time. Not really into MMA, and sometimes enjoy old boxing matches. Besides that, I don't watch any other athletics. I haven't watched the past three Superbowls, but I've watched every WWE pay per view sense Wrestlemaina this year.

Story lines are scripted, punches open fist, moves made to look like they hurt, and matches fixed. I know the ends, and outs of it.

I like the way matches are worked. I could give a fuck less about the rest of it. I have my favorites, I like gimmicks, and I hate John Cena.

Protip: Do not be like The Sick One. His career lasted for only four years, before he had to retire due to injury.

Honestly, rasslin' makes my brain hurt. Watching it is akin to watching the special olympics except they don't all get popsicles at the finish line.

rgf, I was enjoying your posts, and figured if I ever headed for Sharon, TN again I'd make a opoint of meeting you.

In light of your espoused tastes described above, I'm more likely to whap you upside the head with a week dead carp.

Awe. But I'm a skilled conversationalist, and fan of Civilization. I play as Rome in IV, and Japan in V.

That guy playing Minecraft is a FUCKING noob! Full armor, health, diamond sword, and bow. I killed skeletons with my bare hand.

I used to play Civ V, but never had an identification with any particular ethnic group. Mostly I liked playing custom maps as large as possible with as many opponents as possible, and taking a week to play it all the way through to a military conquest - no cultural or Space Race wins permitted.

Haven't played in about 18 months.

Haha. I do that too. Only I also add a Diplomatic victory opinion as well. Never won by it though, because I spend the whole game ether warmongering, or preparing for battle. The combat in V makes me drool a little, because I'm so into classical, and medieval warfare.

SLH played a blitzkrieg style endless aggression game. I prefer consolidation and pushing tech development as fast as possible until I have a decisive edge in weaponry, at which point I favor landing tanks outside a city in large numbers and demanding surrender. I've actually managed a few "Diplomatic" victories by that tactic - after they've wasted all of their troops and treasure, the few remaining will surrender.

Used to day dream about setting up a large conference center with huge display screens, and inviting groups to play an expanded version of Civilization as teams. Such an endeavor would cost a ridiculous amount of money.

My blitz is earlier on during the game, and in bursts when I see another civ not going the way I want them too. God damn Aztecs.

Yeah it would, and the network would be strained. Sounds like a fun idea, but for something like that, I'd rather play IV on the Earth Map. If you broke it down like a tournament for V that would be fun too.

My "blitzkrieg style endless aggression" was just playing as America (regardless of which civ I was actually using). Basically, having zero respect for anyone else's territory or politics. You're me or you're just barbarians with colored shirts.

I lol'd at barbarians in colored shirts.

How in the hell do you keep up an endless blitz? Nonstop pumping out units, and rotating which city when you're able to build something that'll boost population, or production?

Every city alternates city improvement with unit production. Each settler gets sent out with one of whatever my current best land unit is, and if being sent in the direction of someone who might need killing, further escort. I keep at least two workers per city in play, on auto unless I have a gardening project needs doing, like "road link immediately." Putting a city down, the starting work queue goes barracks->worker->granary->combat unit->some other building->settler->some other building->worker->another building->combat unit->building->combat unit->lather->rinse->repeat. And the blitz isn't quite endless, exactly. I'll respect one nation's borders for a few turns, while most of my combat units are on the other side of my territory cornholing some other nation. I'm not going to make that classic German mistake of opening multiple fronts if I can help it.

Oh, and every city has at least one unit on garrison duty at all times, no matter what. It could be so deep inside my territory that it would take a tank 6 turns to get there, it has a garrison.

Another thing I like, that changes gameplay drastically, is to use the editor to change the rules slightly. My favorite change is making mountains completely impassable except to airborne units. It makes things like small passes through a chain have strategic significance, and makes the blitz easier in some ways, harder in others. More real in any case.

I expand as quick as possible being sure to grab iron, and horses. Everything else is just exta. In IV, found Christianity, and start shoving it down everyone's throat. V assign cities to build a group of catapults, foot soldiers, and horseman. Aim at someone around me with something shiny I want. I pretty much do this in cycles for rest of the game. Conquer, bully, conquer, bully.

I don't bother going after any particular resource, keeping up the ring structure around your capital to maximize productivity is everything. This is not to say that the location of the next city in the ring might not be influenced by easy access to resources. And all the shiny I want from my neighbors is their land and workforces.

I take it back about my play style being American. It's Draka.

I tend to build coastal. It's like a habit. "Oooo water. Build!"

I guess I play like medieval France, when they abused the pope.

Can't say for where you are, but for around $100 here, there's a place where you can have a LAN party for up to 25 players all evening long.
That's $10 apiece for ten players, even less if you bring more.

While interesting, that is not quite the scale SLH and I discussed.

More like; a 500 room resort hotel with an associated IMAX theater auditorium for observers to follow play - which would be off-limits to participating team members during game progress as it would show the dispositions of ALL forces. Suites of bedrooms around central central core group gathering places where up to 20 members of a team could safely strategize and make play decisions.
