Ask Massively: Solve all your problems with chainsaws edition {Massively}

Nov 11th 2010 6:13PM it's possible to do that - I share my patch folder on my LAN so my wife can copy the files at ~100mbps.

4.0.1 is several GB tho', IIRC, and might even take two DVDs.

Wait, Turbine offered Lifetime again? I was hoping they would, but I never saw it up on their page - or here.

Oct 27th 2010 8:31PM Congratulations on your promotion, Rubi =)

Exploring Eberron: Soupdance! {Massively}

Jul 23rd 2010 1:28PM The two giant brothers refer to Brawnpits as "uncle," so you might be wrong on the 'Ms. Brawnpits.'

Exploring Eberron: Rolling the right character for you {Massively}

Jul 17th 2010 2:18AM Since you asked for corrections: you can hope for all 20s, but the best you actually get is, what, 2 20s? And then only if you're drow?

Stop crushing my dreams, Syps!

Exploring Eberron: The great dice notation debate {Massively}

Allowing yourself to fall into the lazy thinking of stereotypes is not at all like being unwilling to adapt to, or learn, new tactics or game mechanics.

Jul 9th 2010 4:57PM Eh, more info is good, sure, but it seems like, from a company that sets up a "floaty names" keyboard toggle as part of the default command layout, there'd have been some thought given to making the dice vs. range a toggled option somewhere.

That's true, AD&D 1st Ed did it that way, but 1st also had attack matrices and a host of other bad ideas that were homebrewed away with such frequency and intensity that TSR's reps at cons started thinking "hey, maybe we need a major revision."

Not to mention: DDO is based on the 3rd Edition, and, in my opinion, is at its best when it faithfully brings to life the feel of D&D3E.

Jul 9th 2010 4:48PM I'm pretty sure issuing a blanket dismissal of the concerns of everyone you disagree with is a form of elitism.

I'm also pretty sure posting a comic mocking the hardcore gamer's insistance on a challenge is an inappropriate response to an article about building bridges instead of "going with your gut" and pushing people away.
