I'm down to clown.

Not great at this game, but have a lot of fun losing (typically).

I guess the proper way to organize this is to make a league within the game itself.

Maybe someone who has more experience with that interface can do that (I'll fumble my way through it if no one else does, though). I was under the impression that people with older editions can still play users with newer editions -- is that not the case?

Regardless -- for now, I made a Steam group:

Thanks for the help! I'm on PC, and the platinum is currency that I bought with real money.

So I'm looking to acquire Frost Prime. I've got a bunch of the silver player coins sitting in my bank, and I don't feel like waiting until I'm high enough level to grind out the parts and everything.

Can someone walk me through how exactly the player trading works in this game? Will I be able to acquire the frame itself, or just the parts, or just the blueprints?

Also, what price should I expect to pay for Frost Prime once all is said and done?

Many thanks!

@therealnelsk: Aw, man, I completely forgot about using a Sony controller. I've never really liked them, though. My hands are kinda big and clumsy, and the central parallel stick design of the PS3 controller would also give me cramps.

Holy crap, I just realized I have 3 Duke controllers in the closet with my xbox1. I wonder if there is a way to get one of those to work...did anyone ever make a USB adapter? Probably not, right? And did they even have the right number of buttons? I'm thinking back, and I can't remember it having bumpers.

Oh, right! It had the little white and black buttons offset near the main buttons.

But, still...the Duke. Man...if only...

Thank you both, it looks like most of the community is with you on the xbone controller as well. Out of curiosity, @eder, which games that you encountered lacked proper support for the new controller?

@babychoochoo: I would be very interested in hearing about the differences in design, if you feel like writing them out. If it's going to take too much of your time to do so, though, then don't worry about it. I don't want to be a burden.

@nocall Go for dota 2, I've found the online play has become friendlier, not sure if it's because of the higher levels or the reporting system I assume you've missed in the last couple of years. There's still jerks out there like any online game but it does seem better, that & play with friends like other people have suggested.

@jazz_bcaz Dota takes up the majority of my multiplaying gaming so I have no interest in picking up another moba.

It's been...3 years since I played LoL? They had just introduced the new gamemode map thingy when I quit. I could be wrong on the date. And I was lucky enough to get a beta invite for dota, so I quit when there were ~1/3 of the available heroes that there is now. I think the last one that was added before I quit was "outworld devourer" (at least I think so, I only remember using his imprisonment ability and had to look up the name just now)

@slag Yeah, there's a good chance you're right. I like the gameplay, and it's not like I freak out every time someone criticizes me, but the instances that did make me stop playing in both cases were just obnoxiously, ridiculously aggressive rudeness that just made me left feeling frustrated at the entire human race as a whole.

Whenever I find myself asking this sort of question, especially when the game is 'free,' I like to slap myself in the face.

Why shouldn't you? Unless there's a personal reason you shouldn't, which you wouldn't bring up the question if you did, there really is no good reason not to try something out again/for the first time and possibly enjoy yourself. There is literally zero loss.

That's a very fair point. I think most of my hesitance in not just diving straight back in is a matter of time. I spent a good amount of time on both games just learning the items and heroes, and if I do go back I really just want to play one single MOBA and not waste time re-learning all the innerworkings of the ones I won't be playing. And, since I personally can't see a reason to pick any of these of the others, I thought it would be good to get a weight of opinions.

@wolfgame : thanks for reminding me of that! I remember LoL installing that garbage before. I can't recall if dota does, but I'm going to assume it just uses steam DRM instead.

@gunslingerpanda : As a big time fan of all things DC, this makes me sad, but it does makes sense. Everything I've seen around the interwebzones about it has looked not-so-great.

EDIT: @slag I only have one friend that likes moba type games, and his game of preference is/was HoN. I tried to get him to play both LoL and Dota with me, but he wouldn't come over. I even tried HoN myself, but it just seemed like a inferior product.

Can I have an invite sent to "Tendrop"? (please & thanks!)

I took a break from this game awhile back but want to get back into it. I wanted Excalibur, so I made a new account (old account was only at jupiter and didn't want to grind to pluto just for it). Also, old account was already removed from clan, so I won't be taking up two spots in the roster.

Personally, I've grown to really enjoy the World Cup. The athleticism on display is just ridiculous by these world class futbol players. As a sports fan it's a ton of fun; wish it wasn't only every 4 years. However the flopping and faking injuries and purposely burning the clock(no timeouts for injuriesWTF?)is super annoying to me. Not a deal breaker by any means but it really stands out as a detraction. And some others have noticed too:

This is why I don't watch soccer (as well as basketball , although someone told me it isn't as big of an occurrence in basketball as it used to be).

I really made an honest effort to watch soccer when I was in college, because my roommate was really into it, but all the fake injuries just frustrated me so much. I get mad when I see people lying in real life, why do I want to watch entertainment when lying about being hurt plays such a big role? Every time I would see someone comically throw themselves backwards and then look towards the ref with their arms raised in the air, I'd die a little inside.
