The Death of a valiant Fighter (in Off-topic)

My down arrow.

My down arrow has been the hardest worker out of this, the Undertow team. Between myself, him and enter, we've ran through thousands of battles.

Now he's gone. Today, for no explainable reason, my down arrow just STOPPED working. No pops or snaps, just down, enter, down enter, then down, but nothing happened.

And it's not the down "Function" in my computers head, because if I turn off the number lock, that down works.

RIP down arrow.

Don't feel bad. In the middle of a long explanaition in a thread my "popped" my spacebar off and had to press this little tiny orange button to space. it wasn't fun.

Now my down arrow won't STOP working! OH THE HUMANITY!

OK, you knew this was coming:

BURN THE DOWN ARROW!!!!!!!! Let it rest.

the humanity of a down arrow?

Just use an IBM model M keyboard. They are indestructible...

AdminShade June 23 2005 6:05 AM EDT

or use the numeric keypad down arrow key ;)

AdminShade June 23 2005 6:05 AM EDT

and since you are in a clan you can use C enter C enter ;)

Aco June 23 2005 7:09 AM EDT

or start below and press up button, duh -_-

anyway, stop molesting your keyboard, you obviously bash the button instead of pressing it. might a steel keyboard be something for you?

Maelstrom June 23 2005 10:19 AM EDT

lol Aco - the up button? Heresy! ;)

Aco June 23 2005 11:35 AM EDT

you all get down, while you should work your way up! up! up! it works that way in life! You gotta try to get it up! errr.... your carreer ofcourse ~.^

Actually the little-known C+Enter method is by far the most efficient. Only works when fighting characters in a clan though.

Aco June 25 2005 12:06 PM EDT

just having clan members in your fight list is most effectivester.... ? :P

bartjan June 25 2005 12:56 PM EDT

The disadvantage of c+enter is that it is a 2 handed method, and slows you down. One of the reasons I consider switching to the Dvorak keyboard layout ;)

Or he could hit right instead of down.

Undertow June 25 2005 4:11 PM EDT

Actually, Aco, having only clan members in your fight list is NOT the most effeciant way for growth.

Usually when you fight in a clan your fighting only clan members. To have a decent sized fight list this means fighting a far way down.

I have non clan members on my list, and clan members. Why? Because, they give me better rewards, duh! If I have a choice between fighting a 400k score clan members and a 450k score non-clan member, I'm taking on the non clan member. My rewards will be higher than the rewards from the clan member, even with a 15% bonus.

Now, here is how I work through my clan list:

Down enter, repeat till your done. Then HOLD UP. Your back at the top, start over.

If I used your method, I'd have to hold DOWN instead. OOPS? That buttons not working.

C-enter skips all my non-clan enemies.

And I didn't know right would work. And was ready to flame until I tried it, and it did, to my utter surprise.

Aco June 25 2005 5:01 PM EDT

you don't have to press down to start below, where do you got a mouse for?

flamewind June 25 2005 5:10 PM EDT

Or you could press home/end instead of holding down down or up to get to the bottom or top.
