Pfft... Cortana.

 

Velocinox just provided you five.

This story needs more posts to help it fit in on an MMO discussion site...

 

GREAT! Windows is going F2P?!? What now? Are we going to have to go to the Windows cash shop to buy more hard drive space? 4K support is DLC? Is Clippy going to offer us Microsoft Office locked chests we can open for useless word templates and Excel formulas and all we have to do is buy a cash shop key?

-or-

Free? FREE?! Nothing is free. SOMEBODY pays for it, basically this is the rich job makers subsidizing the lazy do-nothing poor. Windows 10 Operating System? more like OOS: Obama's Operating System... Amiright?

-or-

What is this?!? Microsoft is now moving to a F2P system? I worked hard to upgrade from Windows 3.0 all the way to 8.1, through the good times of 95, XP, and 7 to the bad times of 3.0, ME, and Vista! I've put in the effort and work to EARN my Windows 10 and now you're letting in anyone (who already has 7 or 8)?? that's a slap in my low self-esteem... err I mean FACE!

-or-

If the OS was actually good they would be making people pay for it. This is just going to be another carebear, themepark wow clone vanilla operating system.

-or-

I'll never upgrade to 10 now. Paying for an operating system keeps the riff raff out. How am I going to feel special now that just anyone can use Windows 10?

 

...yea.

Raph Koster?!?

 

Well there certainly won't be any of this...

This is a game? I thought it was a highly successful crowd-funding experiment turned thai gem/pig in a poke con scheme.

What someone considers exclusive is a pretty fair judge of their goals and lifestyle. Considering the group of people that have walked on the moon, or even escaped Earth's gravity exclusive is a fairly safe bet, and if you are one of them you have a legitimate claim to being in an exclusive group.

 

If you consider being the only one to have ever ridden in your washing machine shipping box spaceship dubbed 'Star Hope' as a form of exclusivity then you might want to raise your aspirations.

 

Likewise, if you have a stable of cars including an F40, an SSC Ultimate Aero, a Veyron, a Porsche 959, A Zonda Cinque, a Hennessey Venom GT, and a McLaren F1 then you might be a member of an exclusive group of rich supercar enthusiasts. But if all you think qualifies as exclusive is paying $15 a month for a game nobody else wants to play, then you're not exclusive, you're just anti-social and want a triple-A MMO all to yourself.... and damn the devs and their need to make a living.

How is it dehumanizing ? To describe someone as a parasite is what you would attribute to a behaviour. When whales and subscribers pay for a game how do f2p players contribute aside from being present. They benefit and feed off the whales and subscribers. That is what parasitic behaviour is. It is not dehumanizing when it is accurate.

HA! If that's what you think you haven't logged in lately. Calling it a pre-50 ghost town would be an insult to the social qualities of ghosts.

Since many here seem to be cancelling, can I have everyone's stuff?

That's the dumbest part of all this. Even if they cancel they aren't losing anything. (except maybe the feeling of exclusivity gained from being the last 10 people playing a AAA MMO.)

 

It's like going on a hunger strike the day you find out you no longer need food.

IF F2P is such a big money maker why is Soe losing so much money??

SOE has never turned a profitable quarter in its history. It has always been a financial loss for Sony. Even back when it was all subs.

Well... the haystore down the street said they were switching to gasoline and are no longer supporting horses, only automobiles.

 

Guess I'm going to start walking.

Actually the term Locust in MMO gaming refers to a large group playing MMO's  for 1-2 months until all the PvE content is gone then swarming over to the next MMO.

No

And the locust swarm smells another field of crops.

Now, ESO can be had for under $10... A much more attractive one time payment for the casually bored asshat.

The Secret World did the same thing.

Yea, but TSW is a pretty niche genre. It doesn't have the same draw that a fantasy game does... (unfortunately)

Pay to play? You mean like GW2 and the new ESO plan?

 

'Cause you sure don't get that box for free...

 

Calling WoW the only or last pay to play mmo is hyperbole and incorrect.

This is where things started to fall apart. Every part of me wanted to explore, but the game stubbornly insisted I stay on the rails through annoying, unskippable beginnings. We call this, Training Wheels 101 and it’s made for the gamer who has never held a controller. For the rest of us, the ability to skip past and get to the heart of the game is mighty appreciated.

 

I was also dismayed that Fallout 3 really didn’t seem to care if I knew what I was doing. It put a marker on my compass, sure, but coming from more linear RPGs, I found that freedom to be a little unnerving. I didn’t know which quests tied into the main story. Was I heading the wrong direction from actually making progress in the game? Oh my god, why is everyone in this town trying to kill me?!

 

These are incompatible paragraphs in the same review. In the first one you say you just want to explore nao!, and the game gives you restrictions, and in the second you say Where's the training wheels and the rails? I keep going places and getting killed (a.k.a exploring)

Your initial post was about guns, blah blah blah, I have something wrong in my head.

Not interested. I'm SO butthurt at losing on the internet I think I'll throw an infantile temper tantrum!!! You're blocked. Goodbye. WHAAAAA!!!

Most honest post you've ever made...

 

So this means you're not going to be replying to my posts telling me I'm wrong when obviously I'm not?

 

Oh...

No.

All I want to know is why you got so serious over what was initially just a joke as a play on the words 'PvP players silenced' and he used a picture of an old detective noir villian using a silencer... so I made a joke that reolvers can't use silencers (as a comment on how pvp players being silenced was as absurd as a silencer on a revolver.)

My initial post on the matter was a simple link to a youtube video depicting a woman using a suppressor on a revolver. You made the issue confounded with the argument "that weapon was made for the intent of a suppressor". I don't even know why I'm typing this. You know this. I tried to end it. Please knock it off.

So... you don't want to let this go?

 

Your initial post was about guns, when this thread is about Trion 'silencing' PvP players. You're the one that took it off topic by getting all Poindexter about my post, which was in fact true in all but three cases of revolvers. That's pretty damn true to have someone come along and say 'No... this one gun I met in band camp...' which in the original post I even said all NORMAL revolvers.

 

The really laughable thing about all this, though... is that post wasn't even really about revolvers... it was about DMKano's joke picture about PvP players getting silenced with an old movie pic of an absurd silencer... how it got turned into me schooling you about pistol is entirely YOUR doing.

Read the red text and pout, for your technical correctness was already covered. NORMAL revolvers. Not the one (and only one) made in Russia to specifically use a suppressor. And the pistol in the picture is a NORMAL revolver. :)

 

Sorry, but you don't get to be Hermes Conrad today and be technically correct.

 

 

That weapon was not "made to specifically use a suppressor". There was no such concept in that era. The design was an attempt to increase projectile velocity via regulation of the direction gases are expelled from the reaction. You are wrong, sir.

The weapon in that man's hand is a Nagant M1895 revolver, not a S&W snub-nose .38. It wasn't just "any revolver" either. That weapon was used by police agencies all over the world through the 1950s and used in active service as recently as the Vietnam war.

This is the last time I'm going to try to discuss with you if you're going to overtly be an curmudgeon about minor things.

 

edit: You can tell it's a Nagant M1895 from size, shape, and the distinctly bare ejector rod.

That is a 20s Smith and Wesson Model 10 in the picture, not a Nagant M1895...

 

You can tell by how the trigger guard is recessed from the crane, and how the crane is blocky, the crane on the Nagant tapers in to the trigger guard, the crane on the S&W only tapers midway and then straightens out.

Also the ejector rod is flush with the barrel (no light between them in the picture) as in the S&W and not separate like the Nagant.

As well as the frame near the hammer curves gently rather than a hard curve.

 

 

Recessed trigger guard from blocky crane and attached ejector rod on S&W

Flush trigger guard to tapering crane and separated ejector rod on Nagant M1895

 

I suppose the best proof though is why would Hollywood go to Russia for its detective movie pistols when it has thousands of them right here at home made by S&W... (Not to mention why would American police forces do the same?)

I think I have a compromise. You're right about the trigger guard. I can't find examples of a Nagant with such a design. I thought because of the angle and lighting the ejector rod appeared flush. You argued no revolvers could be suppressed except one made to be suppressed. The compromise is that the weapon in the pic is a toy, not an actual revolver firing blanks. There were revolvers on which could be fit an effective suppressor, which was not the intent of the design, but that rendition is not such a weapon.

 

How is that.

 

All I want to know is why you got so serious over what was initially just a joke DMKano made as a play on the words 'PvP players silenced' and he used a picture of an old detective noir villian using a silencer... so I made a joke that reolvers can't use silencers (as a comment on how pvp players being silenced was as absurd as a silencer on a revolver. Pretty sure the same thing he was going for.)

It really didn't deserve someone coming into the thread and changing the subject to a corner case of where an old, designed in the 19th century pistol, can use a silencer (besides two other 21st century revolvers) none of which apply to the picture he used, and especially when the point wasn't about revolvers or silencers in the first place. it was about how Trion isn't 'silencing' PvP players just doing the same old moderation of rude posts it (and most other forums) has always done.

But if you want to stop here, I'm cool with that. (though, that doesn't change the fact that the gun in the picture is a S&W model 10. [pun]That's my last shot.[/pun])

Actively silencing .... Umm... go take a look at any official Trion forum, actively silencing???

lmfao

Silencers (suppressors) don't work on normal revolvers like that one.

 

Just thought that had to be said... (The rest of you can resume this crazy thread)
