Enjoy! - with access to Melnorme Trade Credits from the Rainbow Worlds, it is easy enough to skip to all the best tech, and economise on RU spending. Plus, with an uber-flagship with Fusion Blasters and Shiva Furnaces, you don't have to build so many damn ships all the time - even if you only use your flagship as a last resort.

Personally, I always try to get the Portal Spawner ASAP - that will save on fuel and time immediately.

Cheers,
Vol.

Well, I have to say I have no idea, seeing as I read thrrough your post and it seemed fine to me. Maybe he was complemenmting you and you're just a suspicious B****rd? And yeas, writing a post after the sauna and before you go to town can result in weird spelling, my apologies.

There are legitimate reasons to want to cheat.
For example  I have already finished the game at LEAST 5 times, I just want some RU so I can fly around and see how things have changed since the original SC2.

That is the ONLY legitimate reason I can come up with! Exploring the galaxy at the cost of losing the whole game really sucks!

And LP, maybe I am a suspicious bastich - I just dislike being dissed by guests who are only here to pick on me  Wink
Oh, do you have your personal sauna? That is way cool! (Envy  Cheesy)

Well, and then there's playing the game after you've beaten it a few times just to enjoy the story it tells. Nice to be able to do so without spending hours collecting RUs and such.

I'd also argue that there's some legitimacy to cheating when you are truely and completely stuck. It's terribly frustrating to find a game you love but can't beat to see how it ends. In that sort of situation, I say go for it. But in single-player games, I don't think there's anything wrong with an individual dicision to cheat, really. If that's what makes the game fun for you, have a blast. Because that's the point of these things. To have some fun, whether that comes from a sense of accomplishment in beating a challenging game, or blowing the stuffing out of all comers like some kind of space juggernaut, or just seeing the story unfold without the hassle of gameplay you find difficult, or perhaps even boring. Whatever flicks your bic. Yeah, there's a case for games played 'honestly' being more fun, and I tend to agree with that view myself. But do what works for you in getting entertainment out of it. I know there was a point to all this, but i've forgotten now.

Oh yeah! Cheating can be legitimate for lots of reasons.About the only time I'd chew someone out for it is if they'd never even tried having fun playing the game unaltered. As long as they have, and maybe hate some part of it they want to cheat around or whatever, it's all good.  Cool

Well said Azzizi. I must say that even though I prefer to play games the "honest" way, I always find it a bit silly when people rant about cheaters. And I believe the point you were making in such an excellent way was : "Each to their own"

Now cheating in multiplayer, that's an altogether different matter.

Indeed. People who cheat in multiplayer games deserve to be thrown into the furnace at the very least.

Agreed, cheating in multiplayer games is not only unfair but dishonorable! Luckily, most games will tell the others when someone else cheats and thereby volunteers for a fist-in-line job on a Druuge Mauler  Angry

As for myself, I cheat (games!) on a regular basis. The main reason is that getting killed after 5 minutes is very frustrating. That's like going to the movies, seeing the introduction and first 5 minutes of the film and then have to leave...
Or if I just want to entertain myself. If I'm not indestructable in RL (LP, I've learned it!) why not try that in a game and behave like Gozilla?

Oh no! Now please don't even sta't asking what a fist-in would be (and the'e's no fisting-line eithe').

I shall co''ect myself:
Ag'eed, cheating in multiplaye' games is not only unfai' but dishono'able! Luckily, most games will tell the othe's when someone else cheats and the'eby voluntee's fo' a 1st-in-line job on a D'uuge Maule' Grin

I meant fist in line, as in the fist is in line with them (i.e. a direct hit)

Note: I do not advocate violence, even against 14|\/|3|2Z (Transliteration: lamers. Translation: multiplayer game cheaters)
