Well, let’s see. Things happened. And there was stuff, too.

We’ll start with the obligatory political debate, finally back at Tonto for the first time in a while. Along those lines, the debate, which as I mentioned to Whir and Regina, went about like this:

So Kerry was like “Dude, Bush is a fuckup.” and Bush was like “Uh. Terrorists are bad, mkay?”

That having been said, Rome: Total War is awesome. I killed the Gauls, killed Carthage, am currently owning Germany in harsh harsh ways, and am gearing up to take on the Romans in the civil war that’s coming soon. This will be good.

Too, Whir and I have been 2 vs 18ing all the BFV maps as the US, and we r0x0rz. Even 80 or 90% AI cannot deal with our skillz. Had a little bit of trouble with Lang Vei, because they like to hit two places at once, but after some hectic village and roadblock defense, we triumphed mightily. Quang Tri 1972 was pretty rough, too, since they like to hit all sides, but after Whir defended the base and I went and dealt with a couple NVA spawns, that worked out ok. By contrast, I should note that we are the Gods of Hue 1968. Hue 1968 sees us coming and flees in terror.

OTOH, we are not the Gods of BF1942 doing the same thing. In fact, the only map we won was like Berlin. And let me just point out that the Russian guns SUCK.

Also, if patch 1.2 wanted to hurry the hell up and come out, that’d be nice.

We’ll have to up the number of bots in BF:V until my server can’t run anymore.

And we were doing 2 vs 22 in 1942. Not that that’s really any excuse, considering.

I’d like to take a quick moment to point out that all the VC guns suck. I mean, such levels of suck as no one has ever seen before. I’d almost rather have some of the 1942 guns than the VC guns.
