This dude made his bed and now he gets to sleep in it. He acted with monumental stupidity, kind of continues to do so, and acts surprised that people aren't very sympathetic. Maybe he shouldn't have acted like a child. Maybe he should have taken a few minutes to think, "Is what I'm about to post really stupid? Yep" and then not posted.
Buddy, if this is "life shattering" then take solace in knowing that no one brought it upon you but yourself.
@eurobum: Perhaps you have limited roles to begin with as a new player, but that in no way means you are useless. You can be an asset to your fleet from day one. Anyone who argues otherwise is wrong. A newbro can be in a fully T1 fit tackle frig or ecm frig on day one. I don't know how much you know about the game but a newbro tackling a guy and keeping him on field, jamming him and keeping him from fight, dampening, tracking disrupting, etc. is very useful.
Our corporation is in an alliance founded with the central idea of being about new players and making sure that they have a good entrance into the game and have fun from their first day. Judging by the size of the alliance, which is in the thousands, I'd have to say that they might disagree with your opinion that being a newbro sucks.
Also, I find it kind of strange that you claim that Dave is perpetuating a lie. He is a new player. He is telling you how he doesn't think it sucks. That's pretty cut and dry.
Having multiple accounts is fairly common, but it totally is not necessary. I played for well over a year before I even considered a second account. Even now it isn't used simultaneously with my first account. And have you ever tried multiboxing? It definitely isn't more efficient. Trying to manage multiple clients as one person is not ideal.
I would if I could, but I've been unsubbed since shortly after the release of Cataclysm. As far as I know the only way to get your playtime is the /played command within the game. I had a lot of hours logged for the time I spent playing (midway through BC until a few weeks in to Cata).
Kite Co., disciples of the grand master known only as Dave "enemykite" Snider, know no boundaries in our determination. We hope to leave a mark on this universe with our efforts and contribution much in the same way that our lives have been affected for the better through the efforts and contribution of the Giant Bomb staff, especially Ryan Taswell Davis.
Gone from this earthly realm but forever remaining in our hearts. 7o you beautiful man.
I don't think Vinny actively tried to make the game look terrible. He went through the 20+ minute voice profile training, spoke more clearly and slowly than a normal person should have to while in the game, and it still produced some hilariously inaccurate results. Even if it did all function immaculately, what I saw didn't look like it would be fun. Just my two cents.
I have a mildly similar problem. Anytime I pause the player, it's like it's rewinding the amount of time I have it paused. Was listening to the Bombcast last week, paused it at, let's say, the 30 minute mark. Came back 5 minutes later, and it was a part I had already heard .The timer is still going forward, but the audio is definitely wrong. Been doing this for about a month or 2 for me.
I have this same problem. The progress bar shows me at the end of the file, but I'm definitely not there as the podcast is still playing. I also have the rewinding going on anytime I pause the file and then come back later. I have to listen to ten or twenty minutes of stuff I've already heard, sometimes more.
