Damn, I'm split on this one, if I were to win I'd be giving up a chance of getting XCOM in the next competition.
Now I have to first decide which one I'd prefer more.

At least this time we're lucky enough to know what is the prize in the next competition, otherwise I'd jump into this head on .
Still a great game, but between the two i'm currently slightly more in favor of XCOM, currently :).

@nocutius - yeah, shame, that was one thing that could have increased my interest in MP3 I guess, now I just don't gonna bother. New computer and new install routine ;) I'm trying to finish up some newer and older games LOL :)

I already have Borderlands 2 and tried to send Hero one copy but that offer was limited to Europe and USA so I traded it for Saints Row 3...

Borderlands 2 is a nice competition and I can't understand why you wouldn't want to win it - win it and you buy Xcom - you don't win this and win X-com - buy borderlands 2 anyway!
By nocutius (SI Elite) on Oct 04, 2012
nocutius
You tried to send him a Steam key and it did not accept it?

I know I could do that but I need my buddies to get the game first as well to truly enjoy Borderlands while XCOM is a SP game.
I can always get the Borderlands four-pack at a sale in just a few months :)

Good, good. Everyone do your best crowding this competition so you'll be too tired to enter the next one.
My plan hinges on you all being lazy bastards with no stamina but other than that it's perfect. If I'm the only one that enters the next competition do I win all 5 copies? :)

Hey Kres - Borderlands is a fun game, but if you play on PC - be sure to read up on all the tweaks you have to make in the .ini and .cfg files to make it behave and look like a proper PC game.

It's so easy to get 100 points... I got 2.7 k and I'm less active as Devel ... I am more veteran than you devy :P :P :P

But as I look at Hero..... his score is 10x mine .
I shall never leave you out Hero... you are the Master. And I believe that you might be suitable for our dear FoolWolf.

Nah, the point of these competitions is to bring in some new blood.
The most that could be done to not completely go against that main goal would be a requirement of perhaps just a few posts in that particular month.
But i'm guessing that the big dogs are satisfied with the way things are now cause otherwise they would have changed the rules years ago.

The current way has an advantage of also attracting people that are only interested in reading articles and don't care for commenting. So the competitions attract a much bigger audience.

There are roughly 85 people in the competition right now and ALL it takes is saying I'm in. That's ONLY 85 people with such an easy requirement for a chance of one of the most popular games of the moment. And it's not like this site generates little traffic, I don't remember the numbers anymore but Kres gave one that didn't seem small at all.

I never put avatars in =( Never! =( But I admit, I am a lurker, a slow lurker. And most stuff I see is the stuff that SI posts on their twitter =( Simply no time for a full scale dedication to SI, though I do see there's a great community < 3

Okay fellas, settle down now. We're going to sit around this table and solve things the Belgian way.

*plonks down a man-high stack of papers* We're going to go through the guideline of a succesful negotiation first so we can al agree on how we're going to negotiate!

*plonks down more papers* Next we'll discuss the meeting arrangements and catering.

*Yet another stack makes the table sink under it's weight.* Then onto the actual negotiations, determining the rules of conduct between the two parties.

*The table snaps loadly as the last stack of papers slams on.* And then we'll discuss the exceptions to those rules!

Then teatime.
By BoneArc (SI Elite) on Oct 20, 2012
BoneArc
I think I'll do it Kres' way.
How about a nice table where our parties sit down, drink a few beers, have a few laughs, make fun of Roderick's papers, then hug Roderick cause we love him and finally Determine where the reserves will be hidden.

Hero, since you're part of the UN Security Council, can we negotiate a research lab for me ?

@Kres , don't worry ... Nobody read your comment .... Or did they ? ;)
By nocutius (SI Elite) on Oct 20, 2012

I don't think that's the job of the Security Council, it's more about who gets spanked next and how much. Then they usually also fight about who gets to carry out said spanking.
It sounds like a fun club :).
By herodotus (SI Herodotus) on Oct 20, 2012

Or we ccould do it the pub way, as Kres demonstrated. Get pissed and sing football songs and bawdy ballads about long lost love....then all pass out and not remember what it was we were squabbling over.

All I hear is excuses by lovable Russian buddy :P

Oh and should say you really didn't win the Winter War. You got some territory from Finland, just a bit really, while you were after complete conquest. You had an army that was easily three times the size and with a hundred times the equipment. Russia was beaten by the Finns, true story ^^

Don't worry though, you're still badass.

Reminds me of that old Russian novel I read many years ago: "We Never Make Mistakes". It's not that they don't, they just don't fess up. My folks were in Poland recentl;y where my Dad, fluent in Russian and German tried speaking both and the Poles refused to understand him. They finally spoke German but never Russian, even though they do speak it, obviously.
The hatred is still there from Stalinist times. Don't blames them really, if you know your history.

As for being evil? No more evil than Britain (the Empire *shudder*) and the USA (We know what's best for the world, and if you don't agree with us we'll invade you and make you agree).

I'll bet the Georgians are regretting that statement Chosen, with what's happening now in Georgia, birthplace of one Joseph Stalin.

Let the good times roil:)

In all honesty Chosen, you're thinking like it's still a Cold War going on here. I can tell you we in the EU are certainly not afraid of the USA, don't be silly, they'd collapse without our economy. That goes both ways actually.
By herodotus (SI Herodotus) on Oct 21, 2012
herodotus
Having grown up during the Cold War, born a year after the Cuban Missile Crisis (*ugh* - I do feel old sometimes) I can honestly say the only real "Cold War" going on right now is between Europe and America with the Chinese in Africa. It's real, and it's heating up - all over mineral and oil deposits.
Chosen, your Foreign Policy too soft? I doubt the Georgians would agree. As for the EU, I believe they keep propping Greece up primarily so China won't buy it when, and it IS when, it goes bankrupt.

The next real threat is over the islands the Japanese call Senkaku ("Diaoyu" in China) in the East China Sea, that both China and Japan claim are theirs.
The Chinese Navy has just conducted naval exercises to flex their might, and the Japanese and US are planning an upcoming combined naval exercise that will INCLUDE the re-taking of the islands.
This will be all out war if they do.

What can I say - the world's a mess and is far worse than in my day when things looked pretty simple. Dangerous, but simple.

I'm sorry, India is wit hthe Russains now? Did I miss that memo? o_o

@Hero
Honestly is the Chinese would just buy Greece, we wouldn't have a damn problem. We let the bastards into the Euro and before they were ready and now they're messing up the whole economic system. The whole point of the single currency is to work towards a completely unified economy, we can't do that while at the same time abandoning everyone that get in trouble.

We're propping that country up because we do not want to keep the eurozone as tightly knit as possible throughout the crisis, we can't have it fall apart on us now. BE that as it may, they may very wll still end up backrupt and out of the eurozone, which won't exactly manage to increase people's confidence in the system
By herodotus (SI Herodotus) on Oct 21, 2012

About India and Russia - what? All I kniow is Australia and India have just signed an agreement whereby we are going to sell Uranium to them - for peaceful purposes like energy. Make of that what you will.
Yet our backstabbing PM still alows India to cull perfectly healthy live sheep imported from us as "diseased" when they are not (burying many alive and other cruel tortures).
