Has anyone ever achieved a deadlock for ever scenario? Also what would happened if pic related occur?
>>
>>1682154
Trump wins due to Republican control of the majority of House delegations, as said in the screencap. The system for breaking deadlocks is pretty weird and arbitrary, with every state getting one vote, and who the state's vote goes to decided by an internal vote among members of the state's House delegation.

Dems probably react to it like they did to 2000 and 2016. There would be a lot of whining about how Trump yet again stole the presidency, but nothing like the Capitol riot.

This margin results in either continued Democratic House control or a narrow GOP trifecta even more dysfunctional than 2017-19, so I doubt much legislation gets passed in Trump's second term. In terms of foreign policy, he probably tries to negotiate a peace between Ukraine and Russia, and this probably doesn't work. He would call to wipe Gaza off the face of the Earth after October 7th. 2022 would be a blue wave.

It literally got reviewbombed on launch. Sure, that's the case for all paranigger games made in the last 10 years, but what does that even matter? That it got reviewbombed down to 1% positive reviews instead of the usual 0% doesn't really mean much at all. Still a dogshit game hated by everybody at launch.

played it too the end its pretty good the map feels comfy to look at and see your train go along the resource management is kinda okay some things can be ignored but you will definitely need a hospital car. The difficulty settings are some of the best i have seen you can change how much damage u or enimes take the resource consumption of your train to your liking. the music gets repetitive after some time but its pretty good the story is comfy overall pretty good game oh and the rts can be cheesed pretty easy with only scouts and 1 or 2 grenediers to deal with tanks

Sadly as Lemuria your stuck on path diversity. Your god is pretty much the only way you can break into anything but death/astral with a side of fire.

Some early site searching will get you the gems to do a few empowerments, and youll still have a moderately good bless. Since its LA as well its gonna be a real slot pull on what you end up finding too.

Yeah dumping the patch before going for 3 week vacation was gay. That said I enjoy the update overall, it helps break the cookie cutter strategies people were running before or the people that would run the same build over and over.

The overall downside of the patch I think is that it makes players build more well rounded armies and it just isn't as fun. The most recent patch seems better with the toned down cards.

Broad definition that can be applied to any nation from before, during and after Napoleonic times.
Equates communism to being equal to capitalism, the right and the left, and not something that others or is militaristic... and would only be more confusing if someone says "The Soviets weren't real communists" because then communism wouldn't be something you could mention in this powerpoint.
And then says fascists are defined by changing what they are, at all costs, to seek power... which invalidates defining this ideology as anything but "Someone who wants or is in control"... wait a second, if real communism has never been tried then of course it can't be fascist, because it's never been tried!

Is there any historical reason for Asatru to consider wrathful a virtue?
>>
>>1684241
>This practice is possibly supported by the archaeological record. At the temple-hall of Hofstaðir in northern Iceland, oxen were decapitated in seasonal rituals for many years and the heads displayed at the hall. Osteological analysis of the bones shows that the animals were killed with blows to the neck by axe or sword. This method was perhaps intended to produce the spectacle of a shower of arterial blood.
Wait, is it the Warmonger or Blot that gives the virtue/sin pair? I forgot.
>>

Oh. Well, it's just extrapolated from an abstraction by game mechanics. The Norse go raiding, because it's their culture (according to game mechanics), not because their own land is shit, and they need to go raid for subsistence (which is why they also settled and traded a lot). Hence, a culture like that would be wrathful.
>>
>>1684252
Their raiding is tied to being tribal and unreformed in the game. And wrathful is only tied to their religion. Their culture seems to be the opposite. Ting meet gives bonuses to generous, gregarious, compassionate, forgiving, diligent, honest and brave.

It's a shame there's no equivalent of M.U.G.E.N. for Real-Time or Turn-Based strategy games.

Get some shitposty multiplayer games where you and the boys meet up for game night, one guy brings in Brotherhood of Nod, someone else pulls in the Eldar, third dude brings in the Franks, and someone goes wildcard to bring in the Project from Warzone 2100. All competing for different resources on a map.

Or could go full hardcore with a different pack where extensive effort is made to get every faction perfectly balanced.

mugen is a shitpost game where you can import a stickman and make him op, but for some reason people like to make them actually equal and playable.
main issue with a mugen rts is that you're not importing 1 characters but entire fucking factions from fundamentally different games mechanically.
it's just not feasible without taking away some of those core mechanics.

>mugen is a shitpost game where you can import a stickman and make him op, but for some reason people like to make them actually equal and playable.
They also like to make ridiculously powerful "cheapies" to the point that a tier list of power levels was devised depending on how exactly different groups of them worked. Because people can go to any end of the spectrum of balanced vs overpowered they want because it lets them do whatever they want with them.
>>
>>1681140
>once their special resources run out, the game's over for them
option A just make all resources infinite (but limit gather rate)
option B fuck balance in the spirit of MUGEN
