  1. I just don't get it that they make it so frustrating for people. I'm fine with in-game systems to earn stuff that costs money, if it's done well. In Gwent I was very happy to buy various "Journeys" (passes, essentially) because they meant I was getting constant rewards that made a big difference in my progress. If you make it a grind, you're alienating your customers... BB3 is just making me go meh, meh, and meh atm. My interest in purchasing it is near zero atm. I have Cyanide fatigue. Which is so sad because it could have been so awesome...
  2. I like how they're pretending they had already planned it while also copying the list of implementations from the letter.
  3. It's an unmitigated disaster. Again. Whenever Cyanide gives me a glimmer of hope that they are learning and improving, they end up sinking their own battlecruiser. And whatever the underlying reasons may be (poor funding, unforeseen problems, etc.), to my mind, the problems with BB3 development and launch can have no other explanation than sheer incompetence coupled with a staggering overconfidence. Three games and they keep making the same mistakes as well as failing at fundamental tasks a dev studio with their experience should be able to handle. I'd like to add that the above is no reason to roast/harass Cyanide representatives on their Discord or in any way personally attack them online. I say that because that's clearly the way a lot of people vent their frustrations, and I do not condone it. With that said, I've half a mind to start a petition to GW to hand the license over to a competent dev studio. Only I doubt it would do much good?
  4. Any changes you would be able to make between matches in the OCC league are fine, yes.
  5. Just the one, though. We don't overdo things here.
  6. Thanks. I didn't read the others yet, but I know there were a lot of entries, so I'm guessing that was the case. I also think they went for more straight-forward storytelling, something I was worried about as I was writing. Having recently listened to Christopher Paolini's latest book (he was the final judge), I get the feeling he's more of an action guy who likes things a bit more up front. I might give it another overhaul in a while, and see if I can find somewhere else to submit it.
  7. No luck this time, unfortunately. Didn't even make it to the 25 runner-up prizes, which felt a bit like a kick in the middle bits... But writing is like Blood Bowl: the only thing you can do is keep rolling the dice! I'm confident my writing is good, so I will keep throwing it at people until it sticks.
  8. Yeah, true, forgot about that. You have to send a ticket once the round has started.
  9. Kick the team, then have the replacement join. They will take their spot.
  10. The story is now submitted and approved, so it's available to read here, if you so wish! I will know how it fares in the competition on november 24th.
  11. So that should mean it'll be out by August.
  12. Since I'm now on medication for ADD, I was able to finish writing a story for a competition in four weeks (instead of three years for the last one). If anyone is interested in giving some feedback on a 5k words fantasy story on the prompt "A grown dragon finds a lost — or abandoned — toddler in the forest. Write a fiction story about what happens next", let me know. It's for a competition and the deadline for submission is in six days, so I will need you to get back to me with your thoughts by Sunday. Poke me here or email me at thewritemagnus[at]gmail.com.
  13. Didn't even realise it was out! I will add it to Mount TBR. Pratchett is amazing. Though his Discworld collection is a maze, and some of the books aren't quite as brilliant as others. That was a good pick, though! Mort is another must-read, and Equal Rites is high on my list as well.
  14. Yes. It's great there are no overpowered players in this game.
  15. You get a message saying it's not possible. You can still pick something else.
