I would guess that’s how SC and most MOBAS are initially tested.
Balancing, yeah possibly, but I get the feeling that the scope for that stuff extends far beyond crunching dps numbers between units. A lot of SC/MOBA-type games can be balanced with automated testing, but what’s done with the data?
Does maths play any large role in game balance? Obviously it does in programming the gameplay systems themselves, I’m on about in studying the effects changes in player stats have. Theorycrafting, but for an entire game in other words. Models to simulate kills per minute in PvP if you add effects or nerf skills for example, or looking at metrics from gameplay in a “big data” sort of way? I just feel like it’d be a very important tool for designers to have instead of solely relying on anecdotal player’s evidence, since getting that evidence from any one pool will be rife with huge bias. I feel as though if someone’s able to crack that they could pretty much make a career in an extremely specialised field. If it is, anyone got a link to some articles about it?
Also I’d bet my nonexistent beard that guy’s dutch
Haha I have no idea, but can’t think of any other country with iconic windmills. We do have a pretty good one here in sneinton, but I think most people there are averse to literacy, nevermind eccentric beards.
HOW DO YOU HAVE HAIR WAX ON THAT PART OF YOUR FACE either I have overestimated you or you wax your beard and I don’t know which is worse
Hahaha, you mean people don’t wax their beards? Surely this is a thing. Some of the pictures I’ve seen must be either wax or an elaborate design of fine wire and finer string. I just hand some on my hands and got it on my mouth, nothing so fancy :D
I still say dropkick the fucker on their way to the interview.
This has not only been duly noted, but pre-considered; almost put into practice with the inclusion of duct tape and hand grenades; scrapped and then reconsidered. An umbrella was bought ready for when i needed to stand out the entrance and everything
Alas, i shall be the better man and let natural selection take its course…
That could work too, if they accidentally don’t look both ways when crossing the road and end up a Range Rover’s hood ornament then you can safely say they aren’t fit for the role.
