Re: Old Game Archive

Huh. I legitimately was not aware that abandonia was illegal. They had a few games come down off the site, presumably because they were picked up again by companies to distribute. I just took it at face value. I just figured GOG was selling them because 3 bucks for a function version you don't have ...

Old Game Archive

As far as old DOS games go, Abandonia has been around a while and has a pretty good collection of games but I recently stumbled upon The Internet Archive , which hosts a pretty good amount. I figured I'd post it here since we have a few classic game enthusiasts here. I was also unable to find any th...

The existance of all-female leagues and constructed all-female teams is symptomatic of a lot that's wrong with sexism in gaming imo. The latter, I totally agree with.

I dislike the idea of all-female teams, personally. Females in LoL are, comparatively, rare. Players highly skilled enough to compete in a pro or semi-pro league are right on the edge of the skill normal distribution curve. Thus the chance you can build a team that can compete with non-gender-selec...

A possible partial "fix" to this would be to add gold to death based on cs difference to average. E.g. +1 death gold per cs over the top or average cs on enemy team, or +1% of gold difference base 300g recovered for each of those cs. Isn't really ideal, but does improve it. As a support, ...
