  1. Is there a way we can add new video? I mean, there are January and February videos out, your site is still on December video.
  2. So different game next month? I watched the recording, and from what I see number of people in this play session is below 50, so like Ross said, this opens up many options for other multiplayer games. I would suggest Renegade X or Savage Resurrection. Both games are free. Renegade X can take safely take 50 players per server (makes it 25v25 match). Savage Resurrection can take 32 players per server (16v16), but also allows one player to play as commander who builds base and commands other players in RTS mode. I would love to be a soldier in Ross' army. Both games need a bit of tweaking to run on toaster computers, and both of them are not exactly bug-free. However both of them can provide incredible amount of fun in most cases. Example matches of those games: wNuS3_Um4kc yf8GVayBL88 I imagine that Ross would like them, but he probably hasn't even heard of them. Since his inbox is probably very much filled up, I won't send him any mail, but if anyone wants to point out my suggestion, I would be very grateful.
  3. From what I see, Linux is getting more and more popular, so we are on a good track. Also number of games for Linux is growing quite fast. It's nice to see AF community discuss this topic.
  4. Renegade X and Savage Resurrection Both FPS/RTS hybrids Renegade X is free game made by C&C community. https://renegade-x.com/ Savage Resurrection went free to play recently. http://store.steampowered.com/app/366440 Both games have very small playerbase, barely enough to fill up one server at a time. Does Ross like FPS/RTS genre? Would he come to play a round of either of those games? If he liked it, would he be willing to put a good word about those games on the internet?
  5. is out and Ross says that he would like to try something else than Planetside 2.Is there any place were we can discuss suggestions for other games? Are there any known statistics, how many players actually come play into this sessions? I would suggest a game called Renegade X, but it has 40 player limit on public servers, can push it up by making own server. Or if Quintet can take big amount of players, we could revive this almost-dead 2013 game and have some almost-Star-Trek-Bridge-Crew action, make whole fleet, do some fun space stuff. I think it would be better to discuss possibilities in the community before we fill up Ross' inbox even further with suggestions.
  6. I would suggest making IRC work again. Lot of us have Flash Player disabled, so IRC client does not work for us. Also the server that it points at, irc.kottnet.net, does not have channel called #accursedfarms. Are there any other ways to get real-time communication going on with Accursed Farms community?
  7. I like this idea, and I did propose similar project in the past. Problem is that there is a lot of work to be done. You could add everything from this table into your project: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Pwk3ymDhSecfXHJFVo3J2TGlaU7yGsCHOk-_XNquD6k/edit#gid=0 Also from what I see, ScumCoder makes posts with questions and timestamps. ScumCoder, you are doing God's work.
  8. About timestamps for questions and preventing unnecessary duplication, I think that real-time collaboration would be the best solution: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Pwk3ymDhSecfXHJFVo3J2TGlaU7yGsCHOk-_XNquD6k/edit?usp=sharing Again, just a suggestion.
  9. I don't know Ross' workflow, but wouldn't emailing him suggestions make his inbox even messier than it already is? I would suggest Google Form (or any other similar platform) where people could post suggestions, so that end result is nice looking table instead of bunch of emails getting lost somewhere in Ross' inbox. Form: http://goo.gl/forms/9aLWXTH8wo Table: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1aHbzjjMz-xyeCmubGs7HtQksM3ykWd_foLJuJihJiP8/edit?usp=sharing (provided example answer of Magicka: Wizard Wars getting killed)
  10. IRC is still very much alive in some communities (open source community and some gaming communities use it very actively), Accursed Farms IRC channel however seems to be quite dead every time I visit it. AFAIK Ross is planning to redesign some aspects of website, right? One of things that I would like o see is javascript / HML5 web client for IRC instead of current Flash-based one.
  11. So, is this thing still going? Any reply from EA yet?
  12. Command and Conquer universe I would love to follow charismatic leader, even if I end up mutated tiberium freak in the end.
  13. That's why we should very quickly help Ross come up with strictly defined objectives of this. For example, step 3, "Anything else you can think of" is very broad and very open to interpretation. I can think of flying a drone with explosives into EA building or getting few people with Ebola to visit EA headquarters, but those are absolutely not the right steps to achieve goal of making EA stop killing games. That's why I think this whole project needs central place with all related information and tool for discussion. For example, I'm not from US, and I'm thinking of writing my own letter instead of using template provided by Ross. Is it ok if I bitch to EA how mad I am at them for killing Westwood and C&C frachise. Is it ok if I send mail to all top 3 on the list? Where do I ask this questions to get definitive answer? Like I said before, I think first steps would be to make new thread for this and revive Accursed Farms IRC for real-time discussion. With first post in thread being constantly updating relevant information.
  14. Sorry, I watched video again and realised that I'm blind and it's already named "Operation: Communicate with EA" I agree with absolutely everything he said
  15. So phase 0 is to get the message spread as far as possible, right? I think it would help very much if whole thing had a name. For example, when there were serious security holes found in some open source projects, they got their name (for example Heatbleed and Shellshock), which helped very much with PR and recognition among masses. This thing needs a name that can be used in short messages on social media and even as hashtag on Twitter. Something like Ross' master plan, Operation Mailbox, AwEAkening, etc... Edit: I'm blind, Ross already named it "Operation: Communicate with EA" It's not very short or hashtaggable, but still, it has name, no need to make new one. It is getting a lot of traction already, since well known internet personalities are sharing it, so it would be great if people who want more information and want to participate know what to search for and where to look at. I don't think that comments below Youtube video are the best place to do it. Also, could http://www.accursedfarms.com/irc/ replace client with something that does not need Flash Player to work? If possible set up qirc, or just embed Mibbit's client or something.
