Please can we tone it down. Sitting there having to do EU 7 for hours cos these casuals don't do EU 1, and all I have to listen to is AI screaming for hours on end.

Any way to stop the bots spouting shit all the time or is it hard-coded in?

perhaps QMV might solve it, but i'm not sure about the bots

It's clear to me that the supposed greatness of the protagonists father is actually based on a lie. The ogre was supposed to be defeated and the swamp made safe. Thus, Peter, having inherited his fathers weakness, dies to his fathers failure.

Really, it's all about daddy issues.

then why was a monument to his father erected? was the man genius enough to fool the rest of the village into believing he was great only to cause the eventual death of his son?

i assume that peter is the conceptualized form of a beta male, someone who lacks the sort of qualities that most men innately strive to embody (strength, courage, etc). He is constantly harassed by Chad (whose name is a direct play on masculinity itself), a character who seems to have strength, youth, and intelligence as defining traits whilst Little Peter (another ironic jab towards the protagonist) is a useless, scared individual who can hardly manage to stammer out a coherent thought when something even slightly abrasive attempts to interact with him. Peter, the beta-male, is apparently capable of being the idealized man; his father, a man great enough to earn his own statue through his feats and even seduce what most literature would describe as a beautiful, exotic being (the elf), is most definitely a prime candidate for producing promising offspring. however, peter hardly lives up to his own father's reputation, but herein lies the importance of peter's quest. he must trek across a dangerous swamp in what can only be described as a coming of age event. the quest serves as a trial to test peter and see what sort of mettle his is truly made of.

i think it's important to recognize that peter does have potential. he has faced hardship for being mixed blood and it is clear that Chad, though he does possess some ideal qualities, is not the man that Peter should strive to be. Chad is an arrogant bully, and let's face it, those who try to prove themselves to be Chad's by over-imposing their chadlike mannerisms onto others are not truly Chad's themselves, leaving us to assume that Peter will not transform into his former antagonizer. This means that Peter, the down and out boy who is picked on, weak, fatherless - has what most would consider the tools necessary to become something greater than he already is: a hardship filled background in which the strong and successful claw their way out of towards greatness. everyone loves an underdog. but it must be said, what we have analyzed so far isn't profound or even unique. until now, only truths have been extracted; the real mystery lies in the questions brought forth by peter's journey into the swamp.

firstly, we must ask ourselves: what is the significance of the wine? is it a tool to help carry over the story? or is it some sort of meaningless device that peter gets entrapped in, causing his downfall? is it possible that during the journey, peter focused on one tedious detail so fervently that he failed to see the bigger picture, causing his failure? or does the alcohol play on the trappings of its real life counterpart? does the drink tie in metaphorically as a way to express that people sometimes fail on their own life journeys due to dependence of it? the nature of the wine is unclear, but it plays a key role in determining the fate of the protagonist.
secondly, the ogre. the ogre obviously is what brings peter's short lived story to an end, but what does it represent? is it just an ogre that by pure happenstance ended peter? or is it the embodiment of what life could do to any person who attempts a journey like peter's? are people sometimes destined to fail, or do they fail because they are weak? can the weak complete their quest if they do not distract themselves by the wine? or perhaps the ogre serves as a mirror to the reader, warning them to stray from the journey? perhaps it tells you to go on the journey, but whilst upon that journey, forsake your beta mindset in order to find success, otherwise risking self destruction like little peter.

After gaining a foothold in Strategus, the devout followers of Tammo looked to spread their lord's influence both far and wide. The Holy Order marched swiftly through the AFK lands, conquering fiefs in the name of the Flaming Shaft. All seemed well whilst the Prophet Kale led his flock to their destiny. Then, calamity struck. The Capital of Uxhal, home of the Order, shook violently as the loins of the very Earth erupted underneath its proud, erect walls. The city and surrounding fiefs were swallowed whole in the disaster the Order now knows as "Strategus Reseticus." However, though crippled and weak, the Order will not give up its goal. The warrior Thryn, now on a pilgrimage in the name of Tammo, seeks to restore the Order to its former glory. His first step is to take Emirin, a village which may lead to the whereabouts of the now missing Prophet.

duel #1 was horrendous, no autoblock there

duel #2 was horrendous, no autoblock there

i mean the guy used to autoblock, so he clearly can identify attacks from opposing players in order to stop them. i didn't see anything above a normal set of attacks out of rando, so it's not like it's difficult to stop these attacks. it also looks like half of the sideblocks were just the wrong block swung across the screen where they could still stop the attack.

that being said i wouldn't be surprised if he's not cheating in this clip. also, i wouldn't be surprised if he was cheating, considering he wasn't ever even close to a top tier meleer even with cheats.

i mean, linear players like me always do good, but...
