    Remember the good old days when zombies spawned in the dark corners of your base (like the Borg)?

They should have courses that build confidence and teach you to have a strong hand shake and make eye contact, most these kids are introverted because of phone life.
    I chose to be introverted because there's nothing out there for me. (Believe me, I know what I'm talking about.) But yeah, I get what you mean.

    The school system isn't entirely at fault here, but the greedy corporate heads at the top who make millions off of exploiting teenagers and the education system for profit. Until that changes (and it likely never will), people will continue to learn more in five minutes on their electronic devices than they would do in the entirety of six months at school/college/university.

    Maybe I had crappy teachers, but I don't recall learning anything from history classes. I find it more interesting now, but as a kid or teenager it was worse than watching paint dry. I am curious what you think a student can learn from it.
    I think it's useful to know how exactly the country came about it in which I was born and why there is a government giving me rules.
    If there were zero history, we would easily succumb to tyranny.
    While an individual rarely applies what is learned from history in his/her own personal life, that person could be in a position of power one day where their decisions affect everyone else. So, I hope they know their history.

    You want to talk about history ok.
    Ever had surgery? Roman and Greek medicine that we built on.
    Medical terminology? Greek and Latin (Roman).
    Major buildings, roman architecture.
    Our government. Yep follows much of what we learned from Roman republic.
    Yes grade school is useful, I must have forgotten to say HIGH SCHOOL HISTORY.

    Of course civilizations are build on the shoulders of previous work. None of that has to do with high school history classes, which teach nothing useful. I at least learned some useful skills in high school and took mechanics, welding etc once I got that bs out of the way.

    I'm saying finance, speaking classes, computer basics, relationship with peers and romance would be 1000x more useful than knowing who was the 34ths president, who invented electricity (who gives a crap, turning on a light switch is all you need to know and was lbd by every 2 year old on the planet alredy). Wars over tea... who cares? How is that preparing me for my first job interview or helping me decide what to do with my life?

It's the Alpha 18 Dev Diary, to be exact, not a diary in the traditional sense of the word in which one writes everything he's done today. At least, that's my take on it. Seeing madmole shoot down topics that are clearly related to a18 but encourage topics that are not even related to the game as a whole bugs me, what can I say. And it's not like this has only happened now that the release is presumably imminent, it's been happening for months *shrugs*

    Many of the posts are full of controversial topics that, if they were addressed properly by another user, they would span a long conversation. I've seen you move other unrelated posts before, but for some reason those are left free to go on.
    Madmole is the boss. I don't move his posts because he's "off topic". If he wants to talk about MMA and teach life lessons from his own perspective and experience then he gets to do so. If that is unbearable for you to have to read along with his perspective on the game design of A18 then just follow the twitter feed which gets the game progress highlights.

    I have been very strict with this thread in the past and it is no good. A lot of work for me and a lot of bad feelings amongst the community because they can't express themselves. So I have learned to be somewhat lenient with this thread especially when one of the CEOs of The Fun Pimps is participating. When he isn't participating and it goes on and on then I prune.

    I move long conversations out when he is gone for a few days and I want him to be able to find the questions directed to him without having to wade through jokes and nonsense and debates about stuff he's already answered.

    I am generally more strict when the thread is new and still has that new thread smell. This one is very very......ripe.

    I can't stand him for his boasting and he's never even fought a wrestler yet. He has zero power and thinks' he is a 185 Jon Jones but he's not. Costa would break him in half, he ate Yoel's best bombs like tasty sandwiches and just kept coming. Yoel would take him down or KO Adasanya. He conveniently ducked Weidman on the way up, UFC shields their one dimensional flashy striker guys from less popular wrestlers who can expose them. They did the same thing with Pettis when Khabib was on the way up they had Pettis fight a bunch of pansies and all the tough guys fought each other and never climbed the ranks.

    But yeah I think Whittaker will wreck him, Gastelum was too small, Whittaker can close the distance and get it done IMO.

    so MM. stop rotting kids minds and fix those MF bugs like religion and Politics education can be very biased on what is needed. my school streamlined but besides computers and math and shops, I loved history.

    Not with mods, I built an insane hotel/casino with elevators and a ton of parts, wired up electricty, juke box and a lot of settlers and it ran great. MY biggest pet peave is 1 block per meter, which means you can't put a bunch of small decorations on top of a single block, and you are stuck on a 1 meter square grid, you can't build a house on a cul de sac. You can't rotate 360 degrees. We have some solutions there though for the next tech we've talked about. Hopefully we can overcome them for our future games.

    Here is a pro tip: Start using proper grammar and punctuation if you are concerned about the internet's perception of your intelligence. Maybe you are on a phone or in a hurry.

    I found history boring af until I got into college and instead of repeating the same 200 years we were reading newspaper articles from back then, diaries, and getting a much better feel for the bias, and that woke me up to realizing the kinds of biasness we see in every day events.

    I can't understand that at all. I mean hey dude, all you do is upload a file and earn 500+ million just from one platform. Are you that lazy? I mean it is developed on a PC, it runs on potatoes, why not publish it on PC? Its not exclusive to any console AFAIK so it makes no sense. They put GTA on PC.

    If I was assigning priority to bugs it would be hard for me to justify what seems to be minor vehicle sound issue as an MF for experimental, is it really THAT game breaking?

    If thats an MF this release is gonna be pretty polished.
    Some of the MF bugs are a little questionable, but Rick wants a soft landing, this was a 17 bug that never got fixed so I think its like hey lets finally get this one done too kind of thing.
