    They are downtimes of two independent things with different albeit overlapping time intervals and were announced three days apart.  I don't see what the big deal here is.
    And it's not possible to merge/update a task on an already posted announcement?
    Just take it on the chin, humility is a virtue.
  • Party Hearty with Rockstar Energy Drinks & Pop-Tarts - Destiny 2 - MMORPG.com

    Let me get right on that, diabetes !

    I think physical copies come with 2 free insulin shots and a 30 days subscription to Obamacare.
  • Intel's New i9 Skylake Processor Lineup and Specs Leak

    Ozmodan said:
    After looking at the pricing and the specs I am not impressed one bit.  If that is their answer to Ryzen then it is worth a good ROFL.  And again we need a new chipset to run them.  My bet is that since the current i7 run too hot for my taste, these will too.

    I just got an order for 12 1800x workstations from a customer.  The business people know.
    I returned my 7700k 10 days after I bought it, when Al Gore sent me hate mail for my contributing to global warming. Having to de-lid a brand new processor and apply liquid metal to attain sub boiling temperatures at base clock speed is worth a good ROFL, considering my 4790k is overclocked to 4.6ghz and stays below 70 degrees C under full load with the exact same Noctua thermal paste and cooling system.

    I can only imagine that you'll need a fireman's suite to run these new intel chips.

    I think the game is solid and their pricing model is actually fair.  To sell 10 million copies is a nice achievement.  I remember back in 2012 when EA was hyping SWTOR because it had sold over 2 million copies.  Ark is a solid game and has only sold around 5 million copies.
    1. Ark has been avaible for purchase for less time
    2. Ark is an Early Access title which alone scares a lot of people off
    3. Ark doesnt remotely have in the same universe level of marketing spending and stradegy as Elder Scrolls title has and YES that makes a huge difference
    4. Ark doesnt have name branding like 'elder scrolls'

    its more accurate to compare Ark to Flappy Birds
    It is more accurate to compare MMORPG sales to other MMORPGs.
    no its not.

    comparing the sales of Wurm to the sales of WoW or ESO is silly. THose games easily have marketing budgets larger then the entire development of a game like Wurm. 

    its delisional to think the two are in the same playing field when it comes to marketing
    If it's delusional to compare Wurm to Wow when it comes to marketing, why would you compare games that are in completely different markets?
    oh so we can only compare MMO to MMO and only to a specific market.

    sounds like special snowflakism to me
    OK, so in your bout with deductive reasoning, you compare a mobile game, a survival game and an MMORPG in order to quantify marketing - without ever considering that they're completely different markets?

    Carry on then.

    Seriously,  wtf is going on.  I'm hoping by the time I wake up these forums get moderated and cleaned up.
    WTF is going on?  For the past four of five years I feel I've reported the majority of spam this place has received.  Only a handful of others have bothered to report any.  Only a handful of people seemed to care other than me.

    I quit.  Y'all can live in the backed up sewer you can't be bothered to help clean up.

    The same goes for the blog section.  If you bloggers can't be bothered to keep your front yard clean then all your articles will be replaced with angry baba and gambling websites.
    If it wasn't for the spam, @Slapshot1188 would have never known about his $97,000.
