Hey Gunsmith,

Sorry, I don't follow. I've never said anything about changing DM to be like PoW. I like DM as it is too...just wanted an online version is all. If anything, I've been pointing out how PoW could use some improvement in the basic game to be more like DM.

Once again, I respect your opinion, but if the thread bothers you so much, please don't feel any need to follow it. And if you do feel a need to respond, all I can do is ask again that it be in a respectful way.

DII doesnt need an online version.And if you do move DII online it changes it.Like I said before,you have your Pit Of War,enjoy it,have fun,win them all,be the best,conquer it,more power to you.But for the love of God please stop talking about it.enough is enough.By now even you should be able to tell that most of us like things the way they are.Now for the second time i will say this SDSUASRMY have a nice day.

Well, that's an improvement and I'll take it Wink Certainly appreciate the effort - and I mean that sincerely.

I should clarify that by online version of DM, I'd be happy with emailed turns and a website where you can see what's up in all the other arenas throughout the realm. That's it. No change to the game itself. And PBMers could opt to keep their mail to boot. I don't see what's so unreasonable about that.

I'm not trying to antagonize you or anything, but I didn't post this thread for those who are totally satisfied with DM and not interested in any alternatives for the rest of their time. I posted it to find others like me who happen to be curious about other games of this genre and how they stack up. If that's not you, then this thread isn't addressed to you and you need pay it no mind.

Have a good night - and kick some a** in the arena

Adoede, HR called. They would like to speak with you about some unwanted advances. Laughing

See? You are a sexual harasser. Except you are doing it to poor Duelmasters. She just wants to work and get our turns out. And here you are making rude comments on her appearance. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Do you guys know what I am going to do? I am going to go to Papa John's and keep bugging the guys there to make their pizzas like Pizza Hut. I mean, Pizza Hut is the most popular and I like it better. And it is true, I could just go to Pizza Hut. But But I don't want to do that. I'm just going to keep bugging Papa John's until they do what I want.

Ya know, even though there's a Taco Bell right down the road from me, I want to go to McDonald's instead, but I still want tacos. I'm going to start asking them to make tacos. Does anyone know how to get in contact the administration so I can send them lots of emails about it?

Guys, guys, I'm not trying to turn McDonald's into Taco Bell, I just want to add tacos to the McD's menu, and burritos....and nachos.

Hey Longshot,

I'm not sure if you know about this, but there is an entire forum section dedicated to topics regarding "Game Changes" - some of which have made similar suggestions to the ones I made in other threads. I've always considered people who make suggestions on improving the game to be the most dedicated fans of the game myself.

I enjoy this genre so much that there was a time I seriously thought about getting some people together to make an offer to RSI to purchase the rights. Got too busy with other things though and never made any official inquiry. In my more inspired moments, I sometimes think about getting a team together to design an app based iteration of this sort of game. But again, daily responsibilities come crashing in and that always gets put on the back-burner.

Sorry you are so bothered by my interests. But if it makes you feel better, feel free to vent here all you want. That's what online and PBM escapes like DM and PoW are for anyway, eh?

Hey Lugal,

That's the third time you've tagged up on someone else's post to make a comment on this thread - which is fine, but I'd love to hear you in your own words rather than echoing someone else's thoughts. You have a voice all your own and it deserves just as much consideration and respect as anyone else's. Never be shy about using it, bro. And don't let anyone try to shut you up.

This is my experience with pit of war. I thought it was actually an online version of duel 2 when I went to terrablood's site and saw the ad. After all, y would rsi allow the competition's ads on their website? I didn't know better and I quickly learned that it had nothing to do with rsi. I played everyday for 2 months straight, getting up an hour early before work just to play, while I waited on my turns to come in from duel 2. It became so repetitive and became a chore. Duel 2 connects with life and becomes a lifestyle for us and we take this game very seriously. I mean there have been times I've actually chased the mailman down to see if maybe he forgot my turns in the truck because they didn't come. I walk in Wal-Mart and give stats to the passer byers.. names for characters just slam in my head in the middle of the night.. Pit of war is free yes, but you have players who sink money into it just like any other online game and dominate, you can only get so good for free or it takes so long it's insane. That aspect pissed me off and I've never been back, nor have my friends that played also. I feel like I've cheated on duel 2 now that I've written and read this. See, that's that connection to life I was talking about that POW will never have...

Hey Jack,

Thanks for that *too close to home* reflection Wink

My favorite was sitting on the throne poring over every detail in the newsletter trying to decipher which glads were of what style so I could plan my challenges accordingly. I think in the early days, I spent more money on DM some months than I did on my girlfriend...yes, pretty sad, I know. A few years later, I had effectively replaced all the clothes in my dresser drawers with piles of fight data instead. That's when I knew I needed professional help Laughing

Remember frantically calling in to RSI to request a duplicate when the mail didn't come on the day you expected? And then the turn comes the next day and you end up with 2 copies of the same turn? I remember some people used to use that to get 2 official copies of the same awesome roll-up. Not me, of course Rolling Eyes

Anyway, nice hearing from you. Peace.

your interested in changing something i enjoy.that affects me.your interest are no more important than anybody elses.why do you have to have d2 online when you already have pow,it makes no sense.if both are so great then why not keep the best of both worlds?and most of the post on game changes are talking about balance of styles,tourney and no tourney arenas,stuff like that.not much on taking the game online.

Hey Gunsmith,

I think you are responding to my other post asking about an online version of DM. I'd given up that pursuit as others have said that for whatever reason it's not going to happen. Let me be very clear, I'm not trying to push for an online version of DM. It's not going to happen and I've moved on.

This post is about about seeing if there are others around who play both DM and Pit of War or another online game simultaneously (I've changed the title to better reflect that). Not quite sure why some people think I'm still trying to push for an online version of DM since that was never in the original post. Sure an online version would be great. But that conversation ended a while ago.

Thanks for the more considerate tone though, we're all just having fun here after all, eh.

I think you are one of those guys who likes to be wrong and mocked constantly. So, let me oblige you. There is nothing wrong with suggesting ways to improve the game. there has been changes. The game we currently play isn't the same game we played back in the 90s. But, when people say they don't want it, and you keep pushing it, you start becoming part of the problem. And this causes people to heckle you.

I don't think you know what being dedicated to a game means. Here...Sine I am schooling you, I will continue with this. I started playing Duelmasters (Duel II) back in 1987. I played for six straight years in several arenas simultaneously. The only reason I stopped was something beyond my control.

In 2002 I attempted a comeback, but had to stop because of real life situations. In 2011 I attempted a come back several times. The only thing that I have had hold me up was communication problems.

Since coming back, I have written about the game on websites. I have also offered to write flavour text for the tourney announcements. RSI is so swamped with stuff, I thought it would have been cool to get the information for the tourneys, write some flavour text, and post it here on the forums. I never got a go ahead so that idea died. Now I write an on going series set in the world of Alastari for Suspense and Decision magazine. I do all of this and don't get a dime. Nor do I get special treatment in game. Do you see? That is helping. That is dedication. Now buzzing around like a demented yap dog constantly getting underfoot. If you do it like me, you'd be a big St. Bernard getting in the way. Laughing

Who hasn't thought they could run RSI or any other game that they liked? If I got a dollar for every time I thought to buy Games Workshop and make changes, I could buy Games Workshop!

Wow! You are giving me permission to "vent"? You are too kind. You do realise that I can do that without your permission,right? But from what I gather, PoW is designed to bore and Duell II is designed to have players make champions. By the way; do you even play the friggin' game? What arena are you active in?
