Dude is an ass who needs some humbling.
Good luck. The members of that forum lurk around in eager anticipation of fresh, unsuspecting prey. They proudly wear the bones of their victims around their necks, daring others to step inside their lair. I take great amusement from observing the carnage.
Earlier todai in a thread I created on their forum, I predicted that 3000ad would see some added activity from this thread. I'm not a Derek Fanbot by any means, but I understand the rules of his forum. People who violate those rules are treated harshly, but they have been warned in advance. If Brad were to enact similar rules for Stardock (yes, I have started capitalizing it again), I would abide by those also, or move along to another forum.
If you (and I mean the forum community in general) really must flame someone, flame me for suggesting that Stardock committed a fundamental error by marketing a game to the Warcraft/DoTA demographic. I am old enough and cranky enough to hold my own against the most experienced and ruthless flamers on any forum, so bring it on.
At this point Starkock knows axactly how I feel, and how all of you feel. They need their rest now so that they can fix our respective servers, and both Demigod and Galciv2 players can get back to gaming.
