Tides of [chat]

SniperGuySniperGuy SniperGuyGamingRegistered User regular
Everyone has Warcraft on the brain again so let's harken back to the good old days of everyone's favorite RTS

220px-Warcraft-2-Tides-Of-Darkness-Pc.jpg

Sure, I mostly played this by doing 8 player free for alls and turning on all the cheats, but this game also knew if you turned on invincibility you weren't immune to magic so it would go make hundreds of mages to fireball you to death. Good times.

Now, what's your favorite warcraft sound clip? Zug zug? Work complete!

    That whole song plays in undercity if you have never done the quest. You get her sisters locket as a drop from some undead in Blood Elf starting zone and are told to bring it to Sylvie. She summons a backup chorus of banshees and the song plays throughout the whole undercity.

    last year I finally completed the ICC quest for Shadowmourne and got the trinket that lets you summon the lament of the highborne anywhere and it is so great

    That's only because the RTS portion was weak so the exploration levels were more fun. Building roads to build anything, max 4 unit selection, permanent vision, terrible pathing, AI won't rebuild destroyed buildings or pre-placed units. It was great for its time but 2 surpasses it in every way

They constantly want to go out to lunch, and it makes me feel like a poor when I don't go out to eat with them, but when I do go out to eat with them, it fills me with existential dread because all I can think about is that my bank account has less than I feel entirely comfortable with (I'm not broke, but I'm also well aware of my ~1 unexpected bill aware from destitute situation).

    @Brody that sucks bro. You're the normal one and they're being insensitive.

    Also, I just noticed that there is a button on the right side of the Post area that expands the text area to full screen.

    Why?

    And then when it is full screen, there is another button that turns the screen into night mode.

    Also, why?

    oh my god the forums have a night mode

    but only for posting?!?

    If I think my boss is making a huge mistake how strongly should I fight it?

    How strongly should I just start talking to recruiters instead?

    No, there is no WarCraft 4 because Blizzard hasn't found a good RTS to steal ideas from.

    How much will this mistake impact your employment and or work/life balance?

    How long have you been working there? Alternatively yes ABLFJ.

    I enjoyed war3 but it seems so hard now. I've tried to learn it a bit but something about it feels beyond me. probably because of my old decaying brain.

    I need to stop getting hung up on naturally flirty girls

    Just because she's flirting with you doesn't mean she likes you

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    Let's do this as a risk hierarchy.
    Is the mistake something you will be criminally liable for?
    Is the mistake something you will be civilly liable for?
    Is the mistake something your company be civilly liable for?
    Is the mistake just something super dumb that is going to cost your company a shitload of money?

    If the answer to the top 2 is yes, fight hard. If the answer to the top 2 is no and yes to either of the bottom 2, then register your objection, document the hell out of it and make sure your resume is up to date and send it around.
