Hey, I love Axis and Allies as much as anybody around these parts… but sometimes I think you guys take it way too seriously… applying math formulas and algorithms and debating the correct equation to come to statistically logical conclusion to a formula… omg… guys step back… A&A is a game that is supposed to be a fun pastime to escape the dreariness of the real world for a few hours and just have a good time… if you’re debating mathematical formulas, you’ve lost the purpose of playing a game…
my 2-cents (probably an unpopular one too)
No not unpopular. That’s understandable. Its the norm in the 40 game now because guys want to change it. It was getting boring to them and wanted a change and they felt the piece values need to be changed and new pieces added.
I only play 39 games and those games have more stuff in them than the 40 game. Yes I’m one of the guilty ones that has to try testing one or 2 things in every game.
Also the changes that are happening in 40 game now are whats already in the 39 games up to a certain point.
If you ever get to the global games after your kids get older ( that be great ) you may see why the 40 OOB game needs a change.
We’re just trying to make the games better I would say.
That limit on entering events is probably a good idea, but I bet it would have very little effect overall. I doubt there are more than a handful of people, and probably only from larger countries, that it could apply to. But it also might mean limiting a country’s ability to win medals. So I dunno.
Of course it would only have a small effect, but it would give a chance to a few more people who have spent their entire young lives training for a moment that only comes every 4 years.
Is there anything currently showing new episodes on prime time? I thought that wouldn’t be happening for a month or so.
You could be right. I don’t watch the local networks’ prime time lineups. But I assumed that things were different this year because of the writers strike and also because I watch Monk and Psych on USA Network and they have been airing new episodes for over a month now.
I dare anyone to guess where the next “hit” is going to be. Mostly because if you turn out to be right, there will be several armor-clad people knocking down your door a few minutes later asking you (with the aid of a large rubber hose) how you knew where the attack would come. Call me crazy, but THAT would make me laugh.
To my knowledge, you can get banned from posting, but not from viewing…
Rather than banning people from PD, I suggest you lock them from viewing anything BUT PD, if they get out of line. Make the punishment fit the crime! :lol:
Granted BET ain’t ABC, cBS, or NBC, but they made a decision based on the bottom line…
or the viewership line.Â Which due to advertising works out to about the same thing.
What? They don’t want to edgykate de bros about the evils of W, Republicans, Colin Powell, Condoleeza Rice and Clarence Thomas??
I seem to recall one or more of the major networks going through financial struggles and having to cut the budget so the news wasn’t such a drag on the bottom line$$$$.
And now we may soon have Perky Katie Kouric(sp?) taking the anchor news_reader_ chair @ one network and the Survivor Celebrity Newstarget(who was set up for an assassination attempt by his own network) taking another news_reader_ chair.
More big money to a losing cause.
Just like Leno($14M/year) and Letterman($17M/year.)
