  1. Even then, all you're doing is proving my initial point that maps exist to express their modes and designers desire. You can have your opinion on Asymmetric and personally I prefer their design too, but to just flat out imply symms are irrelevant does nothing but hinder designers ability to share unique and varied experiences. I mean like aside from the logical points that give them weight thats already been discussed in full, just this initial idea alone proves enough to me. I just don't get why it has to be so cut and dry. Everything doesn't have to be a war of ideology and battle for superiority of LD. It stinks of elitism. Even though it's just a motion, I feel like this will still be interpreted as an assault of intellectual integrity. I wish I hadn't brought this up tbh, but I expected nothing less.
  2. Thinking one base style is superior to the other is ridiculous, they both have their place and offer a unique approach to combat. It's the experience we provide to players thats important. Realistically if you think symms lack the depth of asymms, it's probably because you don't know how to make a good symm. It's a glass half empty/full situation.
  3. like alien stuffs, lots of really vast landscapes and architecture thats super uncanny might make some concepts in forge
  4. Ok, so I've been thinking about our terminology right. Obviously Symmetric (Mirror Symmetric/Inverse Symmetric) and Asymmetric are the base forms which any map can be categorised as, but two terms I sometimes hear which I really like are Pseudo Symmetric and Asymmetrically Symmetric. So I'm gonna kind of ask and propose what the official criteria for each are. You could easily say they're the same thing but I believe there are examples of both that make them individually identifiable. Pseudo Symmetric: A map that is initially built with the concept of either type of base Symmetric form (Mirror or Inverse) but adopts minor asymmetric changes that results in a slightly different experience from side to side. For example: One side might have a walkway where to other has a ramp, though the rest of the design remains the same from side to side. Asymmetrically Symmetric: An entirely Asymmetrically built map that fosters ideology for movement and/or engagements that allows both sides to perform in a similar manor. For Example: Left lane's transition to base on both sides might have a spiral staircase while right lane has a skill jump. Therefore the concept is the same but the way they're built into the level is entirely asymmetric from side to side. Templar 2 would be a decent example of an Asymmetrically Symmetric map and I'm working on a decent example for the former but I'm sure there are many that exist that I can't think of off the top of my head. But if these terms already mean something else, let me know.
  5. Ight, here's my list for 2020. Might've forgotten a few and meant to get to 100, but I can't watch movies all day lol. So this is in order of how much I enjoyed them, not necessarily how competent they are on a technical film making level. Obviously good film making will influence my placements but this is supposed to be a fun personal list, not an imdb ranking sheet lol.

  6. This an elite core site only, reported for fail rp.
  7. I've got a couple of 2v2s ready for testing, we're gonna be playing in 2 hours but was wanting to watch some of the lads in here run around them at some stage too. Down to show anyone around them that wants to take a look, theres a covey mirror sym and an A/D asym. But yeah any 2v2 playtests I could get would be great. Will probs post them to projects when they're done anyway, cheers. 🙂
  8. We deffo do that sometimes so I'll look into how available it is. Cheers for the rec. @purely fat I think it must've been xamples then. It was one of the elite core.
  9. So I've been watching a new Netflix series. I hope its available in the US too, it's called Alien Worlds. I wondered if it might just be a whatever CGI, non-based documentary but it's actually dead interesting. They use the idea of hypothetical environments on other planets to predict how life might evolve based on how we understand it to work on Earth. A lot of their concepts are super creative too. Seems to also be a platform to introduce loads of different scientific practicians to the audience too. They get astrophysicists, biologists, geologist, etc on the show to discuss how our own planet works and how they make new breakthroughs. There a environments I initially thought were some crazy CGI intro shot for the next planet until they cut to a scientist doing experiments and walking around. Would recommend if you like learning about our planet or are even just interested in seeing some mad alien wildlife and planets. If anyones already seen it I'd be interested to hear your thoughts. 🙂
  10. Rounding up my film list for 2020. Any suggestions to watch before the years out? @a Chunk I'm sure you'll have good suggestions. ;) @purely fat was it you that recommended Time Trap to me a year ago or so?
  11. If you're talking about just the format, everything feels concise enough, I didn't get lost. As for nitpicking, Lego is just pronounced "Lego" with no " 's". But overall, really nice display so far. 🙂
