I’m always around just rarely have time to play. S3D is still my homepage so I can keep up with everyone in case I ever get time to play again
1v1 game with a top level player (who admittedly played terribly this game, previous games were pretty much tied throughout) and I managed to get my 10 kills.
Didn’t capture quick enough, but g00b had 2 kills to tie two of the rounds.
Game was MCB, was just the two of us participating in the game and I probably about averaged 2.4 shots per kill with several tricky RNG rounds.
I’m well chuffed 🙂
Sorry g00b, I know it was a painful round for you, but I was on fire (mostly) 🙂

Kills minus deaths

Wait, who’s drawing on someone’s wood?
Certainly not on yours, I remember last time you wanted me to sign your wood it turned into jelly, which isn’t easy to draw on.
I doubt he’ll have a problem with me saying this (if so you’re welcome to delete this or ask me to remove/edit Bunny)…
We’d spoken briefly in game about this. AW was saying about porting the game to other platforms and using kickstarter (or similar) to fund it, hence, my amusement at your suggestion, being so close to what was spoken about 🙂
I can’t imagine such an endeavor would be successful at present due to an insufficient number of voices to spread the word wide or fast enough. If we still had the numbers from the v40-v42 days, sure, but unless we have a really loud voice in our dwindled community, it would be a waste of time.
I’d like to see it happen, if only so I can log in and chat with friends on my phone while out and about and watch them funk all over eachothers faces (or better still, over their own face due to a funky death).
I know Gavin’s been working on a new engine for a while, it may be possibly to port it to mobile platforms and have cross-platform play, I don’t know. What I do know is that there’s little motivation for the dude to take time out of his own life to put into a project that’s not been appreciated by many for some time, which has the added downside that there’s going to be less donations as well (I know I’ve not donated in some time because I’m #poorpeople).
Mobile may be one of the areas where this style of game could find a reasonable following due to the ability to retain full control without K/M or controller. On PC/console, I’m unsure as it’s so niche and there’s a vast array o other awesome games.
TBH, I only really come back here because my rose-tinted spectacles creep back over my eyes now and again, plus it’s nice to play a game I’m considered ‘good’ at by my peers and being honoured with the title of ‘oldie’ occasionally. The game itself has always been secondary after the first few weeks (the underside of Mandy’s wing was really cozy (the back of her hand however, really stings!))
‘IF’ it were to happen, that the game’s ported to mobile, we would need to reestablish the kill-wall for playing on ‘main’ as there aren’t many who play any longer who have the patience to support new players, usually preferring instead to take advantage of the skill difference to make themselves feel big and clever, which tends to drive away more players than it encourages in my experience.
It warms me however that there are still people wanting to see this game/community regain at least some of it’s previous player count. There have been many bit and bobs done here and there over time by those who have freely given their time, effort and skillset in (mostly) selfless acts of kindness. Keeps me from giving up on this shitty world we currently endure by keeping the candle of hope for humanity flickering away.
Kill a phoenix with fire??
He’s already reduced to ashes.. what more do you want from me?
Armour … we have a spy it would seem.
Kill it, kill with furious fire and ungodly wrath!
Do I even dare ask what you meant by your post?
If you’re asking for dares, how about ….
GET YOUR ASS ON MAIN!
Stole? Rumor has it (see what I did there?) that you guys kicked her out because she had good teeth, thus bringing down the status quo.
Knowing the kind of peer group you have around you, I’m sure you hear and perpetuate all kinds of JuJu 😉
You only want me to move along so you could check me out… again. I know how you scheming brits work! Next thing you know, you’ll infiltrate our radiowaves with music from Adele.
Infiltrate, you stole it from us. Bloody Americans, taking everyone’s data and claiming it as your own. humph!
HUMPH I say!
Nope. No, noone’s used your name or referred to you at all.
Nothing to see here, move along please and leave us in peace.
And oh look, there’s cowbell here.
Who was it to blame again? 🙂
Well your not one of the ‘Old’ guys like Dire Wolf or Willis. Shoot most times I don’t consider myself one even though I’ve played since v37. But you’ve been around almost as long as me So I think that counts
To the newer generation of Scorchers, sure, I’m an Oldie, but I’m Oldie enough to have played with many of the real Oldies and goodies of the game so I know better 🙂
I’m just thankful that I got to experience full/overflowing servers and the chaos that used that bring with multiple DHs firing on round 10 to completely destroy all of the terrain yet leave half the people alive 🙂
Oldies do stop by occasionally, the trouble is, there’s rarely someone for them to play (that’s worth playing at least), so what could have been a few months back in the game ends up being a few days before getting bored.
Essentially, we lost critical mass and the situation’s been worsening slowly but surely since 🙁
This thread showed that some of the real oldies (I don’t count regardless of what that AW says) were still popping in and were still full of love and respect for the community that once was.
I know plenty of dry mother’s from other parts of the planet, but I accept your point that we’re pretty dry on average here, which very much includes myself 🙂
Given that Time Space theories are constantly being adapted as new data and discoveries roll around, I think I’ll just scoff at rumours of theories, especially if I have to curb my mocking of that bastage bird 🙂
Wouldn’t be Scorched’ without much mickey taking now would it and what kind of multiverse would it be without Scorched huh? 😉
