  1. Hmm. As I said, I hadn't realised this was important to you.
  2. I hadn't realised this was important to you, apologies. That would make it potentially inaccurate, but not contextually irrelevant. He, Nike, was thanking the primary organisers of Kanium for their efforts and the resulting growth of those efforts, in a thread about Kanium. This seems, at least to me, appropriate.
  3. This is rather contextually irrelevant, wouldn't you agree?
  4. Thank you for removing the ban from Major Duck, shame about the thread though. Oh well, as you say, the UI is faulty and mistakes were made - these things can happen. Besides that, I think Kanium would find it welcome for proper justice to be done to those that are truly deserving in this case. It would also be good if you could trouble shoot Major Duck's ongoing restrictions and finish it off with a direct apology to Major Duck. Nothing fancy, just a re-establishment of all things nice and just, so that we may continue our experiences together. - DrHat, Co-founder of Kanium
  5. Oh oh oh! I know! Lets BE the Russian and like..take over Afghanistan!
  6. I can certainly understand the wish for "something different", but if nobody knows that sort of thing you're looking for (even in vague terms) then the chance of it happening seems rather slim to me. But I absolutely don't understand what difference it makes on who actually does it.
  7. Fair enough, but are you just wanting other people than "the usual suspects" doing an MP-OP ? Or do you have some specific wishes?
  8. Seems the explanation is very simple: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Starter_Pack&diff=12595&oldid=11799 Thanks Sean!
  9. Fixing the link and then looking at me confused is a strange thing to do. I still have the HTML loaded into my browser and the link for VU's in general in the Starter Pack is: http://www.steelbeasts.com/virtual_units until you just changed it. To see what I mean, simple google: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Starter_Pack Click the small arrow next to the top link and select "Cached", which will show you the page before you just changed it. Alternative check this link: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:XZT58vLep5YJ:www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php%3Ftitle%3DStarter_Pack But good thing that you fixed it in any case.
  10. On the matter of the Starter Pack, your Virtual Units link is broken, probably because the forum was upgraded - maybe an excellent chance to re-create it and update it. Just thought I'd let you know
  11. The irony is not lost on me But in some sense I would say 'No', I advertised Kanium in a SteelBeast thread on the SteelBeast forum..that's not what I meant. I meant advertising SteelBeasts in other places - whether that is advertising of a VU or SB in general is not important.
  12. As I said in another post, I think that the WoT discussions are the way that they are (poor), because of the game..not because of the people in it. The game is naturally geared to foster those sort of discussions (and that sort of behaviour) and I think quite a number of those people, will change their tone and conversation-style once they are out of the WoT environment. Quite simply, if you don't do the "WoT"-style of discussion in their WoT section, you will never make any headway. I think there are is a lot to gain out there, it's "just" a matter of promoting SteelBeasts as best we can and in that way, find the people who would have a much better time with us, than WoT..or even both! I mean think about it, given enough promotion and organisation, we can make sure we have more players AND that esim gets richer, which might (only might) get us more of the stuff we want in the long run for the game (though e-sim could of course spend their money elsewhere if they have other priorities)
  13. +1 good sir! 100% agree (though the magic rounds thing wouldn't happen anyway..we're trying to get people to play SB, not World of Steelbeasts - they either get on board with the game as it is, or they don't :P)
  14. While I sorta get your point, I just want to say this: I am relatively new to this community, I have never been in the military, I don't study tank warfare, I didn't read the manual (because I'm too lazy), I'm a life-long gamer enthusiast (the most stereo-typical kind you can imagine), I spent 8 years of my life working in the game industry (working on games like EVE Online, Tribal Wars, Forge of Empires, Kartuga (never released) and also working for Havok, the guys that do physics for most games like Skyrim, Battlefield and many others) and I actually do like being the gunner in a tank (MajorDuck can confirm this)..primarily because these days I have less time to dedicate to SB than I'd want to. Because my real wish, is actually to be a platoon commander. However, as a gunner in SB - I really *do* have macros set up in order to give me a much easier time at shooting, because I like blowing things up and I like when things are full of action ..and when I'm not accidentally blowing up friendly Spaniards (sorry!), I am actually a really good gunner (or so people tell me). I'm not here because I have no interest in SB as a sim, I do, but I also have interest in it as a game (sorry Grenny, you're right - this will be a bit of hairsplitting. I can only apologise). And it is a game...anything that involves practising for "the real thing", is a game. Software-based or otherwise. I promise that is the extent of my hairsplitting (sorry!) - I wouldn't be here if I wasn't interested in SB as a game (and friends playing it), which then gives me an interest in the community - I'm a gamer, duh Now, as I told Zaphod, I know what you mean. I just don't want presumptions about gamers to stretch any further than it has to. Because we have such an opportunity growing in this community and I think it's worth exploring it to the fullest, even if that means making a few minor mistakes along the way
  15. Yeah I do But as for an age limit, I don't know about this site, but there is for Kanium. That's purely for legal reasons though, given the material on our website and the language being employed by our members..and of course because most times we tried to get younger people in Kanium, it was usually a disaster X_X And oh yeah, me being in my 30s has done absolutely nothing to advance me past the mental age of 12
