but, whatever, this is a dumb topic anyways.

I dont mean agony from their point of view, that is to say, not agony that the race themselves are aware of. Like the Utwig I'd imagine are in a state of agony. Being totally posessed by the will of the Ultron. Whatever it says, they do. And if it is destroyed or lost, well..you know the rest. I'm not positive, but their is a probable chance there are other races that have gona through the same thing.

Wow, that was pretty cool, you broke down my seemingly complex response into a couple of posts. Good show!  Grin

Anyways, the only reason i'm really responding to this thread(which is getting real old), is because I'd just like to add that the Druuge getting rid of the Burvixese, although it was in self-defense, was a rather cold and deceitful thing to do was it not? This just proved what sort of cheating devils the Druuge are (literally). Another option to the whole, be at war with the Druuge thing, is if a bloodthirsty, aggressive, easily pissed off race is close allies with a race that has been cheated by the Druuge and forced to spend a lifetime in some sort of agony, or has been wiped out completely? I dunno, whatever, no need to respond to this if you dont want to. Wink

I know it's a different situation when the Druuge cheat someone, but I guess that when they don't have a choice they would rather compensate their angry clients before getting into a war.


Hmm.. yes they probably would resort to paying the race money over going to war. But what if it is a race that either has taken being cheated too hard, and become extremely violent, (Probably a race of a lower thinking mind, and is too angry with the Druuge to accept conpensation), or has no use for money or Precursor artifacts in their environment? There would be no way the Druuge could avoid war. The way I see it, if the Druuge keep up their streak of cheating and snubbing of other races, they're bound to come across a race that fits either of these catergories. Then again, I suppose the Druuge would try to avoid war with them at all costs, assuming they know a little about the race they're trading with.

Warcraft is all well and good. I dunno though, after buying starcraft a couple years before and getting addicted to battle.net through it, I didn't really see the thrill of playing Warcraft 3. Sure the graphics are great, but that doesnt matter too much to me. Is anyone here still addicted to Brood War?

during melee, VUX are certainly a drag. During gameplay, Ur-Quan are extremely hard.

hmmm...have you tried Outwar? heh heh
or maybe Planetside, if you have enough space. It's about a 5 hour download with broadband.

You could always play big games of Battle.net if all else fails?

The Druuge do do things that would cause war...like lurking around Zeta Hyades.  Like attacking you when you claim your rightfully given item from the Utwig.


Right, that's what I meant. I don't think some of you understand my question. Just because it is unprofitable to have a war, sometimes it is unavoidable. Was there ever anything mentioned in the game, or possibly on PONAF about the Druuge and any wars.

I am curious as to way there was no mention of any wars with the Druuge during gameplay. It would seem that their constant snubbing would eventually highly offend a brutal, less intelligent  race. Do you think there ever were any wars with the Druuge? Their circle of influence seems to be almost as large as the Kohr-Ah and Kzer-Za's.

We're subatomic particles among subatomic particles. Kinda makes you feel sorry for the electrons, they have so far to grow. Grin

Hmm, good question.

I'd have to say for style, what would be more impressive than a tweaked-out Penetrator, with 26 meter exhaust rims. The artificial wind in your hair, the gamma rays in your face and a crew of space-babes on your lap. Roll Eyes Cool

As for combat, my own personal favorite, and I see some of yours, is the Orz Nemesis. Not many can defeat a skilled Orz pilot.

Would I be totally out of line by suggesting a forum just for gameplay hints, tips, and spoilers? (a separate thing like the Tech issues forum)

I just visited after being away for only two days and there are a plethora of gameplay related questions mixed in with all the other conversations.

If you think my suggestion is completely *nutty*, feel free to flame me Lips Sealed


I guess that would be cool, but it would be a bit too spread out. Pretty soon the whole forum would be one giant walkthrough. You can only go so far I guess. P.S.-(feel free to flame me)  Embarrassed

Whether each world had its own unique race or if that includes colonies is unknown, as is exactly how many of those worlds were local. I doubt the Faz are local, as you can check every star system in the game and not find them under a slave shield.


Yea, I know, I was just curious if there was a blurb in the script (which i am too lazy to read) or if Paul or Fred mentioned anything of it.
