You're treading dangerously close to ad hominem attacks there, ace. I suggest you dial down the passive-aggressiveness. Insulting mods gets you on the fast track to banned city.The "congratulations" was a bit of sarcasm in response to your dismissal, which only managed to pollute the forum with nonsensical logic. You're compounding on that with some odious abuse of authority and belittling name calling ill befitting of someone with a moderator position.
Considering you were the one who made unsavory implications in your post when I made a statement about your precious precious game, I think my responses were fitting. Nowhere did I name call, and don't act as if you're some innocent victim. I can respect that you have different opinions as me, but not when you make snide remarks about me when you come to the defense of whatever game you prefer. I am well within my rights to warn you, considering.
Anyway, don't want this derailed any further, so let this be the last post on the Shadow Dragon sucks debate. Let's agree to disagree, and respect others' opinions in the future.
Anyway, Aeolus, I just don't see how killing your own characters can possibly be considered a good fit for a strategy game. I mean, yeah, you don't HAVE to do it, but it's strategically the best thing to do in Shadow Dragon, and I don't recall any tactician in history using the tactic 'kill own army members to get better characters.' I dunno, it seems really problematic, both in a gameplay sense, as it's counterintuitive, and in a story sense, as it makes no sense at all.
