2022.01.23 21:26 PraetorArcher The One Thing Every RTS Developer Needs To Understand
This post has been a long time coming and will no doubt be controversial but I feel it is important to say none the less. To recap, in the beginning was Dune II which established the convention of a new genre of game, one of building armies and battling them. Somewhat serendipously, the design choices at this time produced one of the greatest esport games every Starcraft and its worthy success Starcraft 2. However, as time went on UI improvements replaced what gameplay mechanics that were themselves a relic of programming limitations in the 1990s. Starting in the 2000s we began to see an emphasis of micromanagement, variably described as tactics or combat-oriented gameplay, at the expense of macro management, defined by large-scale strategy or, alternatively, the pursuit of economic, production and technological advantage. Ultimately, this deemphasis on macro spawned the MOBA genre, which as we all know has been a massive success. Concurrently we saw the decline and stagnation of RTS as we know it.
Much has been made of the “skill ceiling,” this idea that macro gameplay is difficult for new players to learn. However, I would contend that it is not that macro is difficult to learn but rather that it is unfun. Furthermore, I believe that the inability for RTS designers to make macro more fun is the primary reason for the decline of RTS. By removing macro, rather then improving it, designers cannibalized the heart premise of RTS, this idea of a game where you build your army up and battle it. As an example the Tension and opportunity cost of having to balance micro and macro is lost with UI automation, especially that which eliminates the need to Screen Shift. Many RTS developers had tried to find some kind of a sweet spot by minimizing macro, leaving only enough in that their game such that it did not qualify as a true MOBA. They all failed.
But why is this that macro is so unfun? Well fun is of course rooted in psychology and notoriously subjective. But that does not mean that it is impossible to analyze. There are several factors but the biggest contributor to unfun macro in modern RTS is a dearth of decision making. Specifically, modern macro does not have good Spatial Decision-Making (where do I click?) nor does it have good Temporal Decision-making (when do I click?). The developers of Starcraft 2 recognized the loss of Tension that would occur with UI automation but did not fully grasp the importance of decision making. As a result of this the macro mechanics that were put in place for SC2 lacked good decision making of one kind or another. For example, the Temporal Decision-Making of Spawn Larva was to cast this every 29 seconds. The Spatial Decision Making was to cast it on whatever Hatchery was closer since there was not variation in outcome between different Hatchery targets. So why is it that macro suffers from this decision-making problem and micro does not? One simple reason and I apologize for the long-winded preamble to get here but it was important to lay the foundation.
Micro is Opponent-Facing
I will say it again for those in back. Micro is opponent-facing. The presence of an opponent means that the Spatial and Temporal Decision making of micro are not only complex but also dynamic. Because half of the RTS game involves the opponent and the other half does not, this inherently leads to an asymmetry in decision making. And it is this asymmetry of decision making that is the reason so many players find macro unfun. With this we are once again faced with the same choice, do we write off those who find don’t find current macro fun as worthless noobs? Maintain the mindless mechanics as a skill differentiation? Or perhaps we should do what was done in the 2000s and shrink macro until it is small enough to drown in a bathtub? Some kind of evolutionary transition state between the dinosaur of RTS and the feathered MOBA? Or perhaps there is a third way. A way to make macro fun by recognizing the root of the problem.

2022.01.23 21:26 js001232 Does it get better?
Today, my STBX moved out and moved to a new city. I don’t want to get divorced, but she’s no longer open to reconciliation. I’m devastated, and I feel completely alone and isolated. Talking to my parents makes me feel worse, and I feel like I was isolated from all of my friends during the course of our short marriage.
I’m depressed, anxious, and terrified of the future. Does it get better?

2022.01.23 21:26 ImHerzen11 How do I prevent my neighbors from making noise? Neighbors who live underneath my flat slam windows and doors, and they let their 4 year old kid run across their apartment every day creating noise. I've warned the neighbors and contacted police 3 times and the police did not do anything.
I am not blaming a 4 year kid for doing this but I do blame their parents because 100 meters from where they live there's a coffee shop that has a play area included and where parents bring their kids to play. All these two parents have to do is to pay $3 for two cups of coffee and they can let their kid play at the play area that's indoors.

2022.01.23 21:26 DrinkRoutine5176 OSU trailing spouse question
There is a chance that my partner will be getting an offer from OSU, I was wondering what others experience in this situation is? Have you been able to find interesting work?
For context I'm a late 30s M professional in oil and gas, although not in the US. Seems this is an industry that isn't very strong in Oregon! I can see a total of 1 job tangentially related to what I do in the state. I'm not too fussed about my careeindustry per se, but would like to work in some kind of professional capacity. From what I can see it looks like a pretty small job pool, at least in Corvallis.
I see OSU have a "program" to help out couples in a similar situation, anyone has any experience with this? Is it actually effective?
We managed to spend a day in Corvallis, seems to be a nice country town. Big fan of your beers.
Appreciate the help.

2022.01.23 21:26 cyanAstrologist Latin name for an Assassin's Guild?
I'm not 100% sure if this is the right place for this question, so forgive me if I used the wrong flair or anything.
I'm doing a bit of worldbuilding, and I'm trying to come up with a name for an assassin's guild. A friend suggested 'Mortalitasi', but it turns out that name is already taken by a popular franchise. Which is a shame, since I really like it. If anyone could help me come up with a similar one, or offer any other suggestions, I'd be very grateful.

2022.01.23 21:26 TheThunderWithin NG Soldier is Mega fun and actually somewhat competitive
Here is my decklist
Pretty fun combo deck, and can spew points. Vilg renegade buff feels pretty impactful, and the entire deck is carried on the insane amount of value illusionists can generate. Your leader can give them armor too, so it is very hard to deal with. Since it is a point slam deck, it doesn't care for no units and has a good matchup spread; with the amount of thinning it has, it's very consistent too.
The issues with it are that it is very combo-oriented, relying on access to Germain piquant round 1 along with slave infantry and Vrygheff to bully round 1. Menno is also only included here to provide access to Royal decree, which can get you your key cards. This means that if you draw bad, and lose round 1, you can be bleed very easily. the Vilg illusionist combo is also very hard to pull off if you draw into it round 1, as to get the best value your opponent needs to put good bronzes in the graveyard.
Although it can't beat jackpot long round, or deal with Alumni, it is a deck that is strong enough to climb with and won't disappoint on the fun factor.
(Please buff Tibor, or make him more useable in a soldier deck; I want to use his premium but as of right now best-case scenario he plays 10 for 9, plus mill value, but that's pretty bad to put in a soldier's deck.)

2022.01.23 21:26 Tedious_Grafunkel Player faction idea/suggestions
When Titan production gets implemented I was thinking it would be cool if there was some kind of story line for your faction on trying to get the technology from the aliens and end up in some kind of arms race with the other human factions with the outcome being all of them has one. Also I feel like this would allow for more player ships and weapons to be implemented.
Or just have a quest line for the aliens that will eventually allow you to buy a Titan albeit for a very high price but enough to not make it feel less rare
