If there were one thing I could change... (in General)


Mythology [The Knighthood] March 12 2010 8:19 PM EST

This hopefully won't be opening too big a can of worms :)

Post
1) One thing you'd change / revert in CB
2) One thing you'd change about yourself
3) One change you'd make with the world


For example, mine are

1) Make item naming's permanent again
2) See long term benefits over short term gains, down with Id up with Ego
3) Make the ratio of men to women 1:10, erm, I mean peace love, hmm... I guess for space travel to be very real and very cheap so that going to the moon very similar to a short holiday.

1. No encumberance, SS a skill, week long tournies with BA caps.

Mythology [The Knighthood] March 12 2010 8:26 PM EST

Think you may have misread that into, say three things that you'd change with CB... The idea is you pick only one thing which reveals what is most important, not a list you can think of...

1) uc's damage model changed to non-linear
2) chronic pain (12 years now) to be gone
3) have humans do what's right because it is right, don't wait until it is cheap or easy

Raise IQs globally by 10 points. Every single person, no exceptions.

Raise IQs globally by 10 points. Every single person, no exceptions.

Fail.

Demigod March 13 2010 2:51 PM EST

Ah, because it's an average. The new IQs would still reset to their old scores. I see what you did there.

Lord Bob March 13 2010 2:51 PM EST

Fail Fail.

You really mean Win.

Lord Bob March 13 2010 2:53 PM EST

Ah, because it's an average. The new IQs would still reset to their old scores. I see what you did there.

Ah, yes, I see the error now. Yes, I did fail. *grin*

Well, just raise overall intelligence across the board then.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] March 13 2010 4:23 PM EST

1) Either remove the PR/NW link or lower the randomness in damage across the board.

2) I'd go back in time to tell Younger Me to stop being an angsty whiner and realize people are just trying to help me.

3) I think providing minimum education to everyone on earth is the best thing one can wish for.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] March 13 2010 5:17 PM EST

"minimum" as in "at least minimal education". Not as in keep everyone ignorant :)

That was worded badly.

ControlFreak March 14 2010 7:17 AM EDT

True.. true, although.. walking often requires roads, shoes, clothes & food...
All which are made & distributed with assistance of fossil fuel.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] March 14 2010 8:41 AM EDT
