Spleeeeeeeeeff

On single player!   I was feeling lazy and built this little thing.   I'd explain how it works but I don't own a SMP/CMP server to put it on, but you can see some sticky pistons which act as doors. The fences in the above-arena shot work to stop people from getting in after the event starts (late arrivals are either assigned to the next game or, if spectating, let in to the stand.)   I'm going to fill in all that Air between the spectating platforms with glass later to stop spectators from jumping down and interfering with the Spleefery.               Texture pack is DokuCraft continuation custom.

SOPA and why we're now the USSR.

That's right. We're devolving into what the Soviet Union was. Maybe even worse. Thanks SOPA, and everyone knows there's no chance of getting this out of here if it passes, for another 20 years or so. Well fought, and I shall see you again. Possibly. If the internet is still around.

Sal's Realm Castle Wars Event

It was huge. We got Salmoneus to show up, and I got this picture of him! Sal, if you could autograph it that would be nice.   That's me in the Elite Black platebody!   Ahem. Anyways, I tried to kill Sal when he was on the Zamorak team for Round 2. It didn't turn out very well. He has amazing bodyguards. I was single-hit killed. On the plus side, some very funny things happened to me. I managed to take ONLY 1 HIT OF DAMAGE from a Korasi special. 1 DAMAGE. And I wasn't even at 1 HP left either. No, more like 400. Good times.   It was very fun and I hope we do it again, possibly Stealing Creation or Soul Wars or something.               Oh and Sal, I want a duel arena match with you. Just to see if I, the Famous-In-The-Faking-Section Tree LOL can actually kill the Legendary Santafishy. Or at least a Stealing Creation/Castle Wars battle without your bodyguards. No stakes on either of course, no matter how much I want that Santa Hat.

RuneScape: Providing reasons to hate humanity since forever

So I got into a lengthy debate on how poorly designed World Event 2 is (which, of course, it is,), which included some of the following topics: -PvP and Caravans -Stuns -Bandwagoning -Jagex -Free Construction xp (is good part)   The vast majority of it ended up being about stuns, anticipation, and freedom. Basically, there was this one Bandos (who, I believe, is still top of the kills board) and this one Armadyl guy. Essentially, soon as I start telling them about how stuns are the reason PvP is broken (I'll explain soon), that somehow equates to being anti-EoC.   So, I hold my stuns-broke-PvP position due entirely to this: Freedom has a 30 second cooldown and prevents stuns for 6 seconds. Anticipation has a 24 second cooldown and prevents all status problems for 10 seconds. Using freedom, followed immediately upon deactivation by anticipation will give 16 seconds of stun immunity, with 20 seconds left for freedom to recharge once both have worn out, then another 4 for anticipation. Or 6, I don't know. During these 20 seconds, you can be stunned again. Guess what you can do? Abso-fudgeing-lutely nothing. Nothing. At all. Unless, of course, you stun the other guy first. But what if he's currently immune? What if it doesn't hit? What if it does hit and this just becomes a goddamn stun war? That's why stuns broke PvP: there is no skill involved anymore. It's basically just "use stun-preventing abilities, then stun the other guy real quick while I'm weak to stuns, then use the stun-preventing abilities again, then stun the other guy when they run out..." It's a stun war. The deciding factor in PvP battles is really who gets more stuns in. That's about it. Simple to understand, right? Well, here's an elaboration: As stuns prevent you from doing anything during their duration, your natural response is to use Freedom, and then Anticipation, so as to get the maximum amount of stun immunity. While you're immune, what do you do? Well, certainly can't let the other guy get hits in, so should probably stun him. Oh, looks like he used freedom. Well, just beat him a little bit then use some other stunning ability, then he won't be able to do anything. Then wail on him while he can't do anything. And then he'll be ready to do more stuff, and he doesn't want you to hit him. So he stuns. Then I think you get the point.   So, now that that's all clear and understandable, on to why humans are dumb: Got into an argument with the Bandos and Armadyl mentioned above, mostly about stuns. Ended up explaining the situation to them basically exactly as described just above. Turns out, somehow, disliking stuns in PvP automatically equates to being anti-EoC. As a result, this not only means that the entire game is based around PvP, but also that such PKers admit to such combat being centered on stuns, as stuns in PvP is the equivalent of EoC, and if one supports EoC, then one does lots of PvP and thus uses lots of stuns.   Humans are dumb because they jump to these idiotic conclusions based on absolutely nothing, that in turn mean nothing and could easily be dismissed with one simple point of logic.   The point of logic that counters PvP = EoC is this: The Evolution of Combat was based around PvM combat, which is why PvP experience gains were removed. As such, stuns were not designed for use in PvP settings, resulting in their presently devastating effect on any human being they touch. Oh, and there were other abilities introduced besides stuns, you two idiots I was arguing with.   The point of logic that proves that stuns did in fact ruin PvP is this: Being that the Evolution of Combat and the abilities brought in alongside were designed for PvM immediately means that, as soon as people find a way to gain an advantage in a PvP environment that doesn't require more than the critical parts of the brain, they will use it. They will use it to death. As stuns prevent you from doing anything, and the stun-blocking abilities will still be half-charged while you are vulnerable, they must either be changed to Binds in PvP environments, thus blocking only the movement of the enemy, or else have all stun abilities blocked in PvP, and any abilities that include stuns have their stunning power removed in PvP. This change is necessary due to the fact that PvP fights are won simply by stunning your opponent the most. If your opponent has been stunned for longer than you have, then you can naturally deal more damage to him than he can to you. As a result, stuns MUST be changed.   Oh, and make PvP mandatory for participating in the World Event. At all. I used to have the position that it should just be for convoy participation, but seriously, skillers don't make sense anyways. And there aren't that many of them. Why appeal to the vast minority like that? I'm literally considering just canceling membership and walking away if WE3 has PvP, but it's not mandatory.   Discuss if you want, but I won't argue back because all my points are already in here.

Mine is too damn high. But, since last time I asked for negs, I got positives, I'm going to ask for positives.

Raids and Completionists

Time for a RuneScape rant! Today I'm going to be ranting about the Completionist Cape and the fact that there are people who want Raids to not actually be a requirement for the untrimmed Completionist cape, and why it's really dumb to only make it a Trimmed requirement. And good god, my last post to this blog was in 2013. Where the hell did that time go?   The main argument against Raids being a Comp Cape requirement seems to be that it does, in fact, require teamwork. Well, goddamn, what a nightmare! Completing a multiplayer game requires you to work with a team! Who'd have ever expected such a horrifying situation? Most of these particular complainers fail to realize that, were Raids to be shifted to Trimmed Comp for this reason, then we'd also have to move a number of requirements over to Trimmed Comp for consistency. Namely, the following Quests would no longer be associated with the Completionist Cape's untrimmed variant: Shield of Arrav
Defender of Varrock
Hero's Quest
Legend's Quest
Curse of Arrav
Temple at Senntisten
Dimension of Disaster
Recipe for Disaster
While Guthix Sleeps
Ritual of the Majharrat
Royal Trouble
Throne of Miscellenia
Blood Runs Deep
Glorious Memories
Branches of Darkmeyer
The Light Within (which hasn't been released yet but is confirmed to require some of those other quests)
After all, if we're moving one piece of content to the Trimmed cape because it requires teamwork, should we not move all Completionist requirements that can't be done alone to the Trimmed cape for consistency? Now, I do get the people who actually argue that it's very difficult to find and coordinate a competent 10-player team for Raids without being expected to use voice communication or whatever it is the elitists are doing these days. That's fine. I get that. But as Raids become older content and people find strategies that work for them it should naturally become much easier to organize kills of the early bosses, and really the bottom line is that if you aren't willing to complete this multiplayer game, then you don't deserve the cape that says you finished the game.   Some minor arguments that started popping up around the time Raids were released seemed to be based around the fact that Raids are hard. Really? Tell me more about how easy getting 99s in every skill in the game was far easier than any boss. Tell me about how easy it was to finish every quest. Once again, Raids will get easier as they become older content, and once again if you're not willing to finish the game you don't deserve to be called Completionist.   I dunno, I'm never going to have the Completionist Cape, and it's not because of Raids. It's because it's not physically possible for me to sit and grind every skill out to level 99 and retain mental health. I just can't do it, but even then I will try Raids once I reach the end-game, and when I finally get with a team that beats all the bosses I'll be satisfied with my achievement and glad I actually did it and didn't pay someone to let me leech.   TL;DR butthurt elitists want comp cape back but don't want to earn it, they're dumb.

Praesent Terrarum ( Cyoa 3 Video )

Here, take a look at some progress.   This direct screenshot shows Grapefruitman's Lair in its Praesent Terrarum adaptation. There will be many more Easter Eggs to find other than the obvious Adrien Brody. Some you'll have to hear.
