atleast you have proper city planning, I'm hoping for a good earthquake that drives away millions from cities, so we can have good planning with no grey commieblocks.

Why is it that Western societies and by Western I really just mean American have a bizarre fanatically belief against charity and goodwill?

Do you think we would be better off to have something like this?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zakat

Just imagine, getting lots of money from an anonymous rich source and it being expected of you. In America people actively bitch about this with terms like "welfare queens" and an Ayn Randian contempt for poor people. How did this even happen? Why do people tolerate it? I am at a loss for words now in that general sentiment, where simply receiving and giving charity is frowned on with a kind of contempt. Do you think American society is kind of Satanic?

Do you take this view?

well if you ask the general opinion, anyone who is not wahhabi just perceives them odd. also there is no "real islam" and will never be since there is no singular authority that accepted by them. in here turks see them as loudmouth and freak people, arabs see turkish muslims as something like half paganist even though the turkish way of islam is crawling in pain for 500 years and many of traditions wiped out to core.

Since you keep insisting on spamming your fucking videos I'd just like to address this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eumfcEWTab4 as in the first few minutes a very good reason why I despise poltards so passionately and consider them subhuman trash. Acting like the whole world and all the rest of us should follow your human trash rules is why you should all get your shit pushed in. We're on the outside. All the rest of you dumb fuckups can piss off. It is extremely conspicuous just how many of these "xXx1488_PrussianbluexXx" tier race warriors are nothing but fucking ex cons with nothing better to do. You don't get to tell us to follow your prison rules IRL. You now have to assimilate and follow our rules or get crushed.

My original post was just an attempt at humour at how the imperial powers relished in these tribal differences that for outsiders seemed trivial but for those within the same cultural group created an abyss of differences.
A good part of my Russophilia comes from the plethora of distinct ethnic groups that live under the banner of the Russian Federation.

1st gneration: TRUE BADASS WARCRAFT le medival warfare in 80s-ealy90s style dark relistic fantasy
2nd generaltion: Intermission Warcraft - still high fantasy but going slightly to what it will become in future (Warcraft adventures)
3rd generation: WARCRFT3-Vanilla WOW - still good and more developed universe that changed style and added more crap in universe because without new content there no reasons to continue. There still more fun that crap, since warcraft 3 story was pretty nice by itslef
4nd generation - BK and WotLK - much more crap, but not to much to drop it, not ALL things from old warcraft replaced and here are stilkl reasons to follow
5th generation - cataclysm-now - "crap".

We had a small discussion a while back. I thought it might be interesting to give it its own thread.

I don't really play because of no frens, but I've recently been working on a cube for Magic. It's a pretty fun exercise really, especially with my stipulation that all cards must be modern border because I want a more uniform look to the list rather than a mix of very different frame designs. I don't know if I'll even bother to ever put it together in real life but filling out a spreadsheet of cards, comparing them and seeding the various archetypes while maintaining the desired power level and 'feel' of the set is really fun in an autistic kind of way. Probably less fun if you don't enjoy what is essentially game design, a whole lot of crunching numbers and not a whole lot of actually playing the game.

I also like hex wargaming but only play PC versions because no frens, let alone grognard frens who will play non-miniature based wargames. From what I understand, it's pretty much all Warhammer and games similar to it around here. Then again, with how I like to take a break and think over a turn for a good while before executing the attacks, it's probably best that I don't play with real people. I've wanted to try ASL for a long time, but that game is so ungodly expensive that it's not really worth it when you can get entire games for less than some of their factional expansions.

If you want even more role playing than in DSA, take a look at the Cthulhu P&P as well as Vampires The Masquerade, both focus on telling stories without too much number crunching. Vampires especially can be played with barely any calculations at all.

The extreme would be the FATE role playing system, where the story can be made up by both the master and the players on the go and the dice rolls don't even require counting higher than 4.

DSA is already nice if you want classical fantasy, but nobody outside Germany know it. The Cthulhu rpg has the interesting twist that barely any character survives more than one adventure and instead of taking damage your chars lose sanity.

I got to a point where I'm pretty happy with my cube's common section. The main limitation is that I'm trying to keep it modern bordered rather than mixing and matching. There are a few archetypes supported but I also tried to just include good value cards in there where I could. Can you spot any of the archetypes yet? It's a Conspiracy cube so it is built a bit different to traditional cube. That's why there are multiples, conspiracies often like to interact with multiple cards of the same name and while I'm not playing them all, I'll be playing enough that it makes sense for them to exist. Also, I am trying to make it feel more like custom limited than a traditional goodstuff cube. Any other players got any feedback? Keep in mind I'm trying to keep some lower-power stuff in there to get the limited feel to it and Conspiracy limited is multiplayer so games tend to go long.

Maybe when I end up finishing the cube, we can playtest it on xmage or something. It could be fun to cube with Ernsts.

Yeah I was also thinking of Warcraft II. Especially since back then, like HoMM III cinematics tier looked so absolutely awful.

>>7203
Pillars is not that good. Which is a shame because it has all the elements of what should make for a good game, but it's really tedious and just not that interesting. The story could be improved but then most of the time you're either being distracted from it or don't give a shit about it because you'd rather rebuild your castle. The lore itself is incredibly dry and uninteresting and overall it just feels like a soulless version of an Infinity engine game.

i find the pillars lore also not as interesting as baldur's gate/forgotten realms, however poe and poe ii deadfire in particular is really, really beautiful, the artwork and cgi actually beats even baldur's gate. gameplay is extremely well done, too. definitely in the rpg top 3 of all time imo.

...and warcraft 2 cinematic movies if we not talk about briefings are actually same and even worse than heroes 3 ones. And you can get used to late MM style if you slowely go thought MM6 which one have transitional style that used a lot 3d renders, but also bright colors, phototextures and a little bit of FMV that help situation.

>>7215
I kinda may say that for my absoluetly personal opinion I have PoE style not that catchy and bor me it feels more or less bland. It one of things that just not mine, one of styles that hard to me to get get into not even early 3d-rendered cinematics, but modern middle-class vidogames with a lot of not most expansive digital art and 3d graphics. Something make for me this style of games like PoE, upcoming bard's tale 4, underworld ascedant, legend of grimrock not so eye-candy compare to even older styles that similar games used.

>amphibious landing at Leningrad.
This and also I am going to execute a multiple step plan that is hopefully going to seal the fate of the Russian army.
1.Weaker forces are going to be positioned along the black line to bait the AI into attacking me.
2.At the same time, I will concentrate a lot of forces near Kaliningrad Konigsberg and try to encircle the troops that Russia has in Poland.(red arrow)
3. >an amphibious landing at Leningrad
4. Brown forces will encircle the Baltic provinces and, after meeting up with the defending army at Petrograd, launch an offensive in the direction of Moscow. The Yellow force's job will be mostly cutting off Finland and Murmansk from the Russian heartland.
5. Meanwhile, the combined red & black armies are occupying Belarus and providing minor assistance to Austria-Hungary, if necessary.
6. Lastly, once the black and red amy reaches Smolensk and Orel and the Brown forces set up a front at the Opochka- Novgorod - Tikhvin line, a combined push towards Moscow begins.

Sadly, unless Lenin is sent to Rush-ka there is no way to make peace so I will consider taking these two cities by the end of 1914 a victory.

The Baltic pocket is too big to sustain an advance alongside. I'd break through to Riga ASAP and try and make it more of an Estonian pocket. It'll take fewer troops to keep closed so you'll have actual formations able to advance further rather than a hodge-podge pile of divisions pulled from all over the place. Also, phase lines are life, don't plan an operation without them. Theatre strategy is about having large formations working together and phase lines are a way of making sure that forces are in support of each other at all times. If one army does well and streams ahead but then another army gets bogged down then both armies are in danger, the former of being cut off and the latter of unsustainable attrition. With phase lines being respected, they'd remain in supporting distance of each other and ensure that both formations are operating at maximum strength with their flanks secured. It mightn't be as big a deal in HoI though. I don't remember how difficult logistics are exactly but I don't recall them being particularly damaging to an op.
