    Jun 21, 2018 6:29 PM - A-z-K: Yeah but there's better reasons to hate it other than that
    Jun 21, 2018 6:30 PM - A-z-K: You seen post scriptum?
    Jun 21, 2018 6:31 PM - A-z-K: That'd be up your street if you like empires and historical ww2 accuracy
    Jun 21, 2018 7:21 PM - Ranger: checked it out. i rarely play such mp games anymore. i havent bought an EA game since 2006
    Jun 21, 2018 7:27 PM - A-z-K: Post scriptum ain't no stinking EA game.
    Jun 21, 2018 7:28 PM - A-z-K: I think BF3 was the last time I gave them a penny.
    Jun 21, 2018 7:38 PM - Ranger: I know it isn't. Last game was The Lord of The Rings: Battle For Middle Earth II: The Rise Of The Witch-King

    Jun 26, 2018 at 12:55 PM - A-z-K: But where are you finding it
    Jun 26, 2018 at 12:56 PM - A-z-K: I firmly believe we need to just ignore all this nonsense and wait for it to blow over.
    Jun 26, 2018 at 12:57 PM - A-z-K: The only thing more annoying than SJW nonsense is everyone who makes it impossible to just live a normal life in ignorant bliss
    Jun 26, 2018 at 1:11 PM - A-z-K: Even by disagreeing you participate in their self image
    Jun 26, 2018 at 2:51 PM - McGyver: I think we need to expose this bullshit and laugh about it
    Jun 26, 2018 at 2:52 PM - McGyver: I get most of the hilarious SJW "science" from here: https://twitter.com/RealPeerReview
    Jun 26, 2018 at 2:52 PM - McGyver: all they do is quote peer reviewed and published papers
    Jun 26, 2018 at 2:53 PM - McGyver: you would not believe what is accepted as science these days
    Jun 27, 2018 at 2:35 AM - Ranger: "nigger" should be at the bottom too in "indifference"
    Jun 27, 2018 at 2:36 AM - Ranger: *like the rest of the pic is totally fine*
    Jun 27, 2018 at 4:11 AM - Candles: These days? Don't worry; there's always been shitty science on both sides of every spectrum.

    Jul 4, 2018 6:04 PM - Ranger: Guys GUYS
    Jul 4, 2018 6:04 PM - Ranger: I bought an EA game, but it's from 2008, does it count as a sin?
    Jul 4, 2018 6:08 PM - Ranger: Ok so I spent 53.4 Euros on games since 16th of June.
    Jul 4, 2018 6:39 PM - Sgt.Security: Not gonna deny that EA had some decent games.
    Jul 4, 2018 7:53 PM - Sgt.Security: EA is just good at killing them after.

    Jul 8, 2018 at 4:03 PM - BigTeef: And canceled
    Jul 8, 2018 at 4:04 PM - BigTeef: Thats a nice trailer for Warner brothers to see and then send DCMA's after
    Jul 8, 2018 at 5:45 PM - BigTeef: My friend's game keeps crashing everytime he plays the tutoriakl
    Jul 8, 2018 at 5:45 PM - BigTeef: *tutorial
    Jul 8, 2018 at 8:42 PM - Ranger: what tutorial
    Jul 8, 2018 at 8:43 PM - Ranger: cant cease and desist a community project
    Jul 8, 2018 at 8:43 PM - Ranger: IT'S AGAINST THE LAW ASSHOLEEE
    Jul 8, 2018 at 8:43 PM - Ranger: plus they are russians. laws of the common people dont apply to them
    Jul 8, 2018 at 8:50 PM - D.D.D. Destroyer: what do you mean they can't
    Jul 8, 2018 at 8:50 PM - D.D.D. Destroyer: they totally can
    Jul 8, 2018 at 8:51 PM - D.D.D. Destroyer: if the content they are creating is original, it's theirs, but they have no right to LotR licence
    Jul 8, 2018 at 8:51 PM - D.D.D. Destroyer: so they can be told to stop using anything lord of the rings
    Jul 8, 2018 at 8:52 PM - D.D.D. Destroyer: they can still take all the content they've made and use it in an original IP thing, though
    Jul 8, 2018 at 8:52 PM - D.D.D. Destroyer: so long as it's also not an obvious ripoff of lord of the rings, like sauron or something
    Jul 8, 2018 at 9:02 PM - Ranger: No community fan projects cannot be stopped. currently it's a dedicated team working on it, if they make a community project they're safe.
    Jul 8, 2018 at 9:10 PM - Ranger: That means the code would be available to anyone etc. Also Americans really don't like suing russians
    Jul 8, 2018 at 9:11 PM - Ranger: copyright laws are different in most countries, let alone russia
    Jul 8, 2018 at 9:15 PM - Ranger: most c&d are in america and uk especially when assets are being redistributed. this one is being rebuilt from ground up and the only thing they could copystrike is names. which they cant because its like copystriking fan-fiction
    Jul 8, 2018 at 9:34 PM - Ranger: Change of topic. I'm very confused as to what Americans mean by "socialism". On fox news the examples given were "free college, free jobs, free housing" Uhh... like wat free housing is communism. Free college is achievable. Free Education up to highest education (up to bachelor degrees), Basic free healthcare is doable as well but truth be told, I dont think the economy can sustain it on such a
    Jul 8, 2018 at 9:35 PM - Ranger: on such a scale. greece can get away with it. bankrupt and have deficit, but you can argue that it's not an organized country and the industry and entrepreneurship is shitty. so it'd be fine if all that was fixed
    Jul 8, 2018 at 9:36 PM - Ranger: is that what american socialists want? ive never heard them talking
    Jul 8, 2018 at 10:14 PM - Acolyte: Free college, one-payer healthcare system basically the health care thing is the main one
    Jul 8, 2018 at 10:16 PM - Acolyte: Right now there's 5 huge medical insurance companies that act like regional monopolies, and it's all basically a scam of trying to screw over the mext person in the supply chain, which sometimes translates to the consumer, tax payer, or government entity
    Jul 9, 2018 at 1:41 AM - Ranger: Laws can regulate monopolies tho

    Jul 11, 2018 5:55 PM - Acolyte: I think they should shrink the government, at least then, there's less middle men taking money for themselves, and less of a platform for huge monopolies to bid for power (rather individual's voting with their dollar will help curb some monopolistic tendencies)

    Jul 15, 2018 12:01 PM - D.D.D. Destroyer: i get to be a naysayer to a less receptive aduience there, so there's less negative impact of that; i approve
    Jul 16, 2018 1:20 AM - Misfire: I set up a smaller server for weekday play, but absolutely no one, except a small group of russians, seems interesting in playing anything but Mr. X's weekend server.
    Jul 16, 2018 1:20 AM - Misfire: I blame PUBG and Fortnite : )
    Jul 16, 2018 2:31 AM - Candles: Regarding the LotR discussion, they can totally send C&D's against it. Community projects/fan works fall under Fair Use only if they're parody works. If not, then C&D's can be sent against the creators and DMCA's can be sent against anyone hosting the content.
    Jul 16, 2018 2:32 AM - Candles: It probably wouldn't be able to stop it entirely, but being unable to have their stuff hosted by major providers can really put a damper on things.
    Jul 16, 2018 2:32 AM - Candles: That's what happens to Nintendo fan projects that aren't parody works all the time.
    Jul 16, 2018 4:16 AM - Misfire: Candles has it right.... for the US and many other places the right holder can set rules that fans must follow, or they risk lawsuits and take downs. (if the law can reach them anyway) Parodies are protected differently
    Jul 16, 2018 4:42 AM - Candles: Which is understandable. Most parodies are "obviously" parodies and so there's no sense of endorsement by the owners of the IP.
    Jul 16, 2018 4:43 AM - Candles: But things that aren't parody and aren't so obviously not created or endorsed by the rightsholder can easily be interpreted in such a way.
    Jul 16, 2018 4:44 AM - Candles: For example, it's not hard to imagine someone thinking a serious, fan-made, non-parody work of LotR is canon.

    Jul 16, 2018 at 11:09 AM - D.D.D. Destroyer: @Misfire i think a large chunk of the problem is the lack of seeders, and another being the conditioning regular players underwent to only bother with empires on the weekends
    Jul 16, 2018 at 8:35 PM - Xyaminou: don't forget about the brainwashing too.
    Jul 16, 2018 at 11:02 PM - D.D.D. Destroyer: i know not what you speak of

    Jul 17, 2018 at 2:09 PM - Xyaminou: Althought the correct phrasing is "this doesn't look like anything to me.".
    Jul 17, 2018 at 2:54 PM - D.D.D. Destroyer: that joke is lost on me

    Jul 23, 2018 2:00 AM - vipervicki: @Misfire its mostly because you do not have a fast downlaod server and some plugin glitches, which I am sure you will work out.
    Jul 23, 2018 2:01 AM - vipervicki: only 2 servers on the list atm, looks so sad :(

    Jul 25, 2018 at 9:19 PM - Sgt.Security: I got over with the fact that only a rebrand and remake will actually do anything, everything else is just time-killing hobbies.
    Jul 25, 2018 at 9:22 PM - Sgt.Security: Empires is a nice name but too bad it is part of many popular games out there, and "mod" is an outright downgrade to 2018 gamers.
    Jul 26, 2018 at 2:13 AM - Candles: Yeah, it ain't 2008 no more.

    Jul 27, 2018 at 12:08 AM - Sgt.Security: ouch.
