Re: Stardock CEO threatens to "eliminate" this community

Here's what he said about that: With regards to my *private* venting regarding some of the extremely toxic and hate-filled posts that have been directed at me *personally* from this forum. It is true that on occasion I have vented that this forum (not the project but the forum) should be shut down....

Re: The Umgah Drone

I didn't observe it myself. Either I was told by Shiver directly, or through his melee notes on the Umgah, or maybe I'd already been told by a friend of mine from college who was experienced with SC1 and suddenly found the Umgah much less fearsome in SC2, and whose signature line of 'Master 999' in ...

Re: The Umgah Drone

SC2 really nerfed the Drone by cutting the corners off the cone. Also, by making the arena larger, its zip effectively became shorter-ranged. The Balance Mod addressed at least the first of these, and I think that helps substantially.

Arilou give up to 3.

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

I know that you probably can’t reveal too much (plus I realize it’s just about impossible to keep track of everything I do or don’t al...
