Why the game fell. 8)


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegor...he_long_spoons

Same reason the internet and gaming communities fell also. The free internet movement era was nothing but cooperative game/software development epitomizing this beleif(Where copywrite truly went wrong also). Mud development also. Eventually people became incapable of helping each other freely or working together in an affective way(which is a test of ones ability to do this). The same thing applies to strategy in this game. Interesting alegory. Group combat is the same concept. You either run around zerging. Or you see how you can benefit from each other and use what is in essence proper group work(helping each other to accomplish it.). This is why we can't get proper fire concentration helped defense, healing, etc we don't do it with the mindset to help each other. It's the epitome of the opposite of the one man army concept. Jedi VS Sith if I'm not mistaken... The games only true mechanism was he who followed this rule best won. 8) Hence also the origins of sports and other cooperative events. it was a lesson in teamwork and helping each other.

Maybe not be profound to many people but consider the fact no one can pull it off. The real test is in your actions(pudding). When we figure out how to play well together this game will rebuild.

I found it interesting one of the other variations of this was one of my favorite. The golden mean/rule.

People in this game can't even get together for simple reason to do things. I had not seen a single example of a group not streaming along in a line like a bunch of zerglings in a long time. Even when physically together everyone is technically working apart even if they are working together. It's the mindset first. when you truly have it you will consider others and hence yourself in the group and accomplish great things. Until then we continue to fall or live in hell just like the parable. The same environment but one difference. heaven vs hell.

Especially with the coming of the new game(unless they have completely broken it down to individual play, if that is even possible since you can always choose to work together) I think it's pertinent bring this up. The first men/side to figure this out again, will be the truest and literal winners of this game.
