well good, yea, i knew you had been back a bit and saw some shots on facebook. not too much is happening on the forum, no. i played a few 3v3s with ann last week. One of my housemates moved to chicago (the one that played sc2) so not sure how much that is going to cut into being on heart o' the swarm.
Ya, i still play dayz. just built the other housemate a computer that can play it... we are on a few nights a week. the standalone should be in alpha pretty soon if you want to try it out. it might not be worth paying for the mod at this point. hard to say how fast the servers will transition or if the standalone can even catch up to the modding of the mod that the community has been doing over the last year.
league seems like Starbattle with less freedom of movement. i don't want to sit in a hallway for 90 minutes while 3 other people sit in 3 different hallways relatively nearby. the only way in which that game is fun is the social aspect... the same way sitting in a room with some friends is also fun. its just a room. it offers nothing of value other than a platform to hangout in... league cobbles together some aspects of sc2, some street fighter, some wow, and it all adds up to nothing i want anything to do with. i am sorry. its massive popularity is baffling. Maybe it's perfected the art of making the wins feel significant and the losses feel irrelevant? Can't say i'm not curious but watching it bores me to tears (see above).
the dayz mod is in my top two or three games ever, often at number one. it's a little unfair to count all the community generated content as one game but its free so i guess it must. atm i'm going with broodwar, dayz and the first gran turismo. Glad you're back, congrats,z
