It is rather sad. An individual who's majority of posts are negative, complaining, and combative. He plays with a back level JTCS patch (1.02 released in 2007)and complains about the current and future patches. He only plays the AI and constantly complains about it. AI shortcomings / limitations have been documented for years - that's why majority of JTCS players are involved in PBeM. He "threatens" to leave these forums. But sadly does not leave. He heads over to the GameSquad forums, where he immediately starts complaining about Squad Battles. Essentially, he accuses a lead developer of Red Victory of being a racist and manages to get a thread closed because of his belligerent and combative behavior. http://forums.gamesquad.com/showthread.php?104764-Patch-needed-badly-for-AoR-and-Red-Victory&highlight=Deputy
And to what end? How has his actions advanced or contributed to any forum?
Why would an individual, who constantly is negative, complaining, and combative about either JTCS or Squad Battles, or any other PC game, continue to play these games? Why not give it up and move on to something else? Life is short. Why not enjoy your time instead of constantly complaining about a game system?
To me, it does not make much sense.
As a gamer, I understand and accept the short comings of various game systems. JTCS AI is sub-par (I'm being nice!) and frankly way too easy to beat. IMO, any JTCS player, who wants to have a "fun" and "exciting" experience with this game, really needs to embrace PBeM. Human versus human play is the only viable way to go with this game system given the poor AI. Is it fair? Nope. Am I dictating how others should approach and play JTCS? Nope. I'm simply stating that given the current state of the game system, and the historical development of various patches, and support, PBeM is a superior playing method for JTCS. I learned many years ago, to abandon solitaire play versus the AI, and move forward with PBeM. And you know what? I'm much happier for it! Not only do I get to enjoy JTCS in its current state, but I'm content and patient waiting for future patches and support. I'm enjoying the JTCS game system NOW and making many acquaintances and friends along the way!
Seems like a much better route to follow than constantly coming on these forums to complain?
Yawn...huh? Oh, sorry. Dropped off to sleep reading your comments about PBEM. Okay, let me ask you this...what has "being patient" gotten you in the CS games? It has been YEARS since the promised 1.05 patch. IF you are the same age as the majority of the rest of us, then I suggest you and I and the rest haven't got much longer on planet Earth before we go to the big battleground in the sky. You planning on sitting next to Saint Peter and telling him to "be patient' too?
