Title: Androsynth
Post by: Lord999 on November 09, 2008, 06:25:57 am
Hey everyone, I am somewhat new to the board, but i play A LOT of Ur-Quan Masters. I have a question though, who here ACTUALLY likes the Androsynth? I mean i do, but i wasn't sure if anyone else did. I don't really care what happened to them, i like the Orz and Arilou, but i am just curious if anyone else likes the Androsynth since you don't see them at all is SC2.

I used to think they were bitter, mysterious, dangerous and close to evil.

But I started playing StarCon2 when I Was 10, so...
Now I think they are (were?) a previously oppressed and potentially very cool race with advanced intellectual abilities, a unique culture, and interesting moral problems to solve re: cloning (how many, what type, designed by whom, how much chaos to allow in, social structures based on designed people?). I am very interested in them now that I'm older and I would like them to feature prominently in SC3 as kick-ass cool people.

i know, the first time i played SC2 was when i was like 6 or 5 (a few years after it came out). I was also wondering what heppened to them, but then i was just like: "you know what? WHO CARES! They are AWESOME enough to not matter what happen to them!". I wish they would make another SC (a real one by the actual makers) with the Androsynth just APPEARing out of no where.

Of course I've moved on from space games to RTS games and freeciv mostly, but when I played UQM more, I liked the Androsynth, mostly because of their amazing technological insight.

I completely agree. Not the "moved on" part, but the "technology insight" part.

Lord999, you remind me of myself on the SCDB when I first joined. I think I should tell you that I got banned from the SCDB for "posting too much junk". I don't know about UQMF on this, but I thought I'd give you the heads up.

His conversation are not junky. His question can bring valid answer and...from the post of psydev...possible parallel to real world. that post remember that I red...(god knwo where tho) that one day one of the two great god that created SC2 faced somebody who was oppressive about homosexual. Ain't racism and fear of homosexual people (correct me if homophobia is wrong in that case...just not sure) a related topic to that precise matter. Maybe they didn't think like that when they created the game. But, like author of a novel, you can find several answer even tho they did not intend to do so at first.

Believe it or not, my posts started out very much like that, though. Like I said, not sure about here, I'd bet you guys aren't as fussy about that, but this sort of posting eventually got me hated and banned on the SCDB. Now when I go there, I get:

Whoa!! Why am I all of a sudden not banned? That's strange. I was placed on a permaban! Um, right? (I think I read that in that report thingy while I was on anonymouse...)

My IP address is the same (I remember the 75 in the front and like a 191 somewhere), so this makes no sense!

I guess I have some investigating to do then. 8)

EDIT: I think I've figured it out!
When I tried to log in, it suddenly brought the ban message up. So I have two possible guesses:
1. The ban was actually not based on IP and I was able to cruise through once I was finally logged out
2. My IP did in fact change slightly

Your banning is of no concern...what you did ...well gah I don't even know. I am just saying that the way he post at the moment is NOT anoying. Again this is my opinion maybe other have different point of view. I see him as somebody who could be young or could be older than my fair 19...BUT he is seeking is way in the vast world that is the WEB. He is curious about everything but still unsure about what he can really do if he give his heart into it.

Well, anyways, the Androsynth must have found a way to possess the members of the SCDB, making them crazy. ;)

After all, they ARE crazy!

Or maybe they're all Androsynth who plot to take over the world! ;D

Your posts may have started out like that, but I think what eventually got you banned was posting dozens of new threads containing mostly single sentences and mimicking Valaggars retarded sock-puppeteering even after he stopped. Still, that really has nothing to do with this forum

Regarding our newest addition I think it is a bit annoying when people post in very old topics to make small comments. It doesn't really hurt though, as long as it's not done in excess. Back in the day I think Kohr-Ah Primat posted one comment in almost every topic on the board, and while sometimes annoying it did rejuvenate some conversations as well.

Regarding the actual topic, I like the Androsynth. They were not very fleshed out, but their part of the plot was well thought through and well executed. If there ever is another release, I'm hoping for more back story.

I don't find it annoying in the slightest, but I can certainly see it making research difficult for a historian who's waaaaaaay behind :P

For all who like the androsynth, there's always hope that more will be synthed ;)

Not at all. I look at start dates, not last post. Oh, and shut up. ;)

Off topic: It is amazing that people are actually fighting for me (more people on my side though).

On topic: I would have never thought that so many people liked the androsynth because they are WAAYYYYY backstory in UQM. I like them, but it is just so weird how some people are mixed up on the topic.
