Re: Interesting Problem...

There's an error in this. Care to try again?

So there is. 2x not 12x. I spent a while thinking of it with the height normalized to 1 before deciding to stick with 6 - obviously I didn't eliminate it entirely from my [more]

Re: Interesting Problem...

I'll make the same assumption as LorenCobb (can plus remaining soda) and also assume that you're drinking through a straw without lifting the can up, so that it remains vertical.

The height of the center of mass of the can plus remaining [more]

Re: OT - Kazim: GoT

I had been wondering how he was going to manage to stay ahead of the show with the book writing. Kazim's answer is both obvious and depressing: he won't. That's somewhat discouraging as it appears the show is his first priority now. I suppose it has [more]

Re: I've got some news to share...

Wow. Congratulations! I will miss your in-depth beta reports, but it sounds like a great opportunity for you.

Re: Borderlands

That doesn't sound right. Are you playing Borderlands or Borderlands 2? What character? What weapons are you using? Are you seeing the problem with all enemies or just some? If so, which ones?

Some possibilities I can think of:

Re: Heroes of the Storm

Actually, having played a lot more, there is still complaining at times. This weekend I had a particularly unpleasant game where I learned I was the worst Uther ever and do not know how to press "Q".

Generally I've made it my

Re: Some amusing mistakes

It might be worth printing off a copy of Trump's Arena rankings spreadsheet, at least for neutral minions (which usually don't vary much between classes except in special cases). Until you have a feel for it yourself, being able to look up what is [more]

I found it on Twitch.tv by Googling. The best part is that he was streaming with his webcam enabled. The expression on his face is just priceless.

Some amusing mistakes

Some things I've learned from games in the last few weeks:

Emperor Cobra (the one with the lethal bite) will only kill a target if it does damage. Hitting and removing a divine shield does not count as doing damage.

Paladins should [more]

Re: FTL Redux

I agree on FTL being an excellent game for parents of small kids, as you can easily play it a few minutes at a time and pause in between. I've spent altogether too much time on it - I have a goal of unlocking every ship and layout and winning the [more]

Re: Skyrim Mod - Requiem

Realistic needs and diseases? The mind boggles. Did someone feel the need to play a game where you can be attacked by a dragon while taking a dump? Or roll a barbarian with haemophilia?

Re: Unleash the Hounds nerfed?!

My favourite hunter trick - which got me my career best so far 7-3 Arena deck, was to get snake trap and starving buzzard. Play both at once and as soon as they attack a minion you've flooded the board with three 1-1 cards and also drawn three [more]

Re: Anyone playing?

By the way, it appears I am FogChicken#1363 rather than 290 as I thought (apparently I got renumbered sometime since the early SC2 days).

Re: Anyone playing?

Holy losing streak Batman! After somehow reaching Rank 19, one win away from 18, in the process of trying to level my Paladin to 10 I just lost 8 straight games (back to 20-no-stars and holding) and saw some seemingly broken (or at least [more]

Re: Anyone playing?

I've only played Arena the first "freebie" time and went 2-3 but I think I might do better now that I've got more games under my belt. I'll give it another go today, but is there some wiki somewhere that talks about what the rewards are? [more]

I believe you can challenge people on your battle.net friends list to games, although I haven't tried it yet. I should be FogChicken.290 if the IDs from the four year old Starcraft thread are still [more]

Re: YaY!

I finally beat Heroes of Might & Magic I! That last map was kind of a booger.

Yes, this game came out in 1995, but it's a relatively recent purchase from GoG.com.

Re: Anyone playing?

Well, I ended up reaching 6 wins with my Arena mage after restarting at 2-2, so either I was lucky, the deck was better than I thought, or mage is OP in Arena (or all of the above).

My main reservations were: no taunt, less than ideal mana [more]

Re: Anyone playing?

I got all the classes to level 10 to unlock the basic cards (I think you get 100 gold for doing this). That allows you to use the basic decks from Trump or Icy Veins rather than the default ones - I actually took to doing this right from the start [more]
