    1700. It costs no mana. Get to 20 fire ranks so you can use minor steam, then use that, a cast or two of 1700, rinse, repeat. 502's worth experimenting with as a cheap mana option early on depending...
  2. For positions with large numbers of applicants,...

    For positions with large numbers of applicants, absolutely, which is the situation set up by the majority of the larger US studios. Microsoft has a game design college basically in their parking lot....
  3. Which part of what I've said do you find to be...

    Which part of what I've said do you find to be inaccurate? For that matter, what of anything I've said do you find to be inaccurate specifically? I generally cite a great deal of sources.
  4. The ones I've been going through in this thread....

    The ones I've been going through in this thread. Those weren't made up. Microsoft, Gearbox, Thoughtworks, 2K Games. The Sierra example I only know from Sierra employee recollections on youtube, but...

    The tech sector. As laid out in examples here. Or did you mean where it works like normal?
  6. No, that is not how shit works. That is how shit...

    No, that is not how shit works. That is how shit worked in the 1980s and 1990s in the tech sector. That is how shit should work, and does in the vast majority of industries. It doesn't in this one,...

    And when it's an industry-wide practice, how exactly do you believe change gets enacted? Maybe a group of like-minded skilled workers, getting together for example, and saying "We're not going to...
  8. Microsoft is far from the only tech company that...

    Microsoft is far from the only tech company that takes advantage. I'm only using it as an example because it's the one I laid out before. If you'd like another one off the top of my head, Gearbox has...
  9. No, I'm not acting like that. And yes, there is...

    No, I'm not acting like that. And yes, there is some of that going on, but there's always a balance that needs to be struck in any industry. Coming from New Jersey, I'm generally vehemently...

    One of the reasons Thoughtworks has offices in about six different countries, yes. And in each one they still outsource their work to India and work in the same way.

    Workers wanting fair treatment...
  11. Thoughtworks does pretty well with it, out of...

    Thoughtworks does pretty well with it, out of Dallas/Chicago. The main downside is that you're paying at least one in-country employee per project the price of 4-5 local coders to move across the...
  12. I was actually kind of shocked to come back in...

    I was actually kind of shocked to come back in 2015 and see people trying to give me their AIM addresses still. That was insane. The rest of the world stopped using it in like 2005 in favor of...
  13. Yeah I shoulda just said software development...

    Yeah I shoulda just said software development from the get-go. Not even my friend at Microsoft was always on a game on his projects. One of them was UI for Xbox One's streaming apps, which I guess is...

    You know what MMO really had potential but got completely bogged down by the companies running it with the lootboxes and pay to win BS? Atlantica Online. Freakin amazing concept, great battle system....

    Microsoft is a pretty good example of how odd and shitty the gaming market can be. Everybody wants the chance to work for them because they pay well and because obviously, but they hire out of...

    That's true. UO was and is very much a graphical MUD too. I think the first Everquest was similar also. Similar enough that people kept saying they might get sued by Diku, which of course was crazy,...
  17. Nothing wrong with SWTOR, but SWG was the closest...

    Nothing wrong with SWTOR, but SWG was the closest you'll ever get to a graphical MUD. They had player housing, everything was a giant sandbox, the story and economy were driven entirely by the...

    SWG was my last "last day" game. Wildstar I'd quit long before the servers went down. Luckily SWG came back and is now free, which is great, but it's still a sad, tired engine. I wish they'd stuck it...

    Mexico has no alliance with the US and has not since WWII when we were mainly importing labor from them in exchange for assurance that we wouldn't try to topple their revolutionary government when we...

    Those are actually really cool. If I'm honest, I would hate working on an electric and do everything in my power to get a gas powered but stock one, but other than that I'm totally on board. I love...

    No, just exceptionally lazy. Until I hit my goal weight, I refused to do any actual exercise. I lost weight by eating 1000 calories a day and a multivitamin, and just parking far away from stuff. I...

    Fuck you, asshole and your fucking optimism. Actual exercise can kiss both sides of my ass. I never found myself wishing advertisers had a bigger chunk of advertising time before I said "I'll just...

    I have no idea of what's being discussed right now (I haven't read the previous 15 pages or so), but isn't that how migrant workers...work? It seems like that happens with some kind of regularity,...

    I hit my target weight today after my late winter/early spring diet and can finally start eating more than 1000 calories a day again. Today I started light weight training instead, so I smiled today....
