but linking reddit isnt lol
I mean there's a possibility there's a misunderstanding here, but the point is cross promotion; not just linking. 😉

MC has been linked over at ERA a dozen of times in both the PC-thread and various EGS-threads and there has never been an issue. The mods just took this as cross promotion since you linked to your own thread where you're doing a giveaway.

I don't think there was any ill-will. The mods may have made a mistake, I don't know, but this is the way I'm seeing it.

It's against the rules, I don't think there's much more to it. No need for any conspiracy theories.
Like how they closed her Gears of War 5 thread pointing out issues with the AO, but the "Gears has the best graphics ever" thread is still open? C'mon. They can't get anymore blatant with their targeted harassment.

Sorry, but I'm not seeing it. I personally don't mind the thread being open at all but I can understand the point in trying to keep that discussion in the performance thread, since it doesn't seem major enough to facilitate a separate discussion.

The Crowbcat thread is still open too, so again, I'm not seeing what you're seeing here?

Queen makes a thread. That thread gets closed because that discussion should be in other thread. Other threads which should also be closed for the same reason are not closed. Queen makes a post saying "Hey, I made an OT on MC. Wasn't sure if someone claimed it here, I'll make one here too if not." She gets banned for a week. Also, that the Crowbcat thread is still open basically proves they have something against Queen.

It's the same selective moderation shit they've had since day 1, that GAF had. The rules are not properly enforced, its only when they're enforced against specific people they have issues with that they can say "Well, it's against the rules."

Youtube self promotion is supposed to be bannable, yet you can see people posting their own youtube videos / reviews and other stuff with no repercussions whatsoever. It's only when it's someone they have issues with that the rules are magically enforced.

You might not see it, but its clear as day to quite a few of us here.

Yeah, the ban was.... strange to say the least, but yeah, better to keep this thread about the game.

Anybody knows if the review embargo lifts at release time or at least a couple of hours earlier? Since I really don't mind smaller budget (and they appear to have done incredible things with it), at this point I just want to see if there are any big reg flags before buying it.

Of Orcs and men is actually really good once you figure out the controls for it

I love old world style maps like that, everything is looking really great with the game
This is from the Of Orcs And Men people? That is one seriously underrrated title, I was mostly surprised by the very solid writing and interesting characters. This bodes very well for Greedfall.

looking back at it , this was also quite significant proble for Bound by flame aswell , that ton of people didnt understand (especially big YTers) how the combat works (iirc it had some unconventional block/parrying mechanics) and blame it all on the game not working.

I'll be watching impressions in here with great interest. I don't love the setting, but a lot of what I've seen so far seems compelling (fashion!). Hope it came together nicely.

Speaking of which, I tried explaining to my partner (who doesn't play games) why the fashion metagame is so appealing, but they didn't get it. Perhaps because at the time I burned an entire day just to get layered Drachen armor in MH World (and then promptly uninstalled because I was exhausted with the game).

is passing out at work bad if you dont get caught?

im not endorsing sleeping at work of any kind unless sleeping is apart of the job description.
Too many people in my office, impossible to not get caught :disappointed-face:

I did sleep sometimes at my previous job, there was nothing to do in the afternoon and I was alone in the office so... :sleepy-face:


Anyway, I'm planning to play with a female character first (obviously), but I haven't decided how to spec her yet. Has anyone already decided which type of character they'll play?

Warrior and technician hybrid build, with one-handed sword as the main weapon with rifle skills for stuns and such.

Too bad there's no shield in this game. :blobweary:

I've put the preload on a USB stick so hopefully my Steam Client at home registers it when i copy it across.
I'll play this for the next couple of days then i HAVE to progress the Main Story on FFXIV, lol.
I NEED to get my White Mage stone and start doing FFXIV Glamours.

What's the unlock time for GreedFall today in BST?

I bought this yesterday (€40 @ Humble thanks to the Monthly subscriber discount), have good hopes that this will be a game I actually enjoy playing through. But we'll see. Spiders games have been hit and miss for me so far.

Seems to be a midnight release
