    the funny thing is thats what I said when I read it

    It was good when I read it 5 months ago, it was good when I read it 2 months ago, and it's still good right now as I read it.
    Q: Is your goal to make everything picked the same amount of times? (from j.walsh)
    A: I don't think about it that way exactly. Sure it's good if there is a nice distribution and that is something to work towards, but really the goal in DotA's development is, first and foremost, to make the gameplay quality the best it can be. It is the combination of all the heroes, items and mechanics together that makes DotA what it is and not the individual elements alone. Sometimes that means certain things are carefully adjusted to be more frequent than others, sometimes it doesn't, but ultimately the main judge of a game's quality is not in some artificial balance metric, but in the overall gameplay quality and depth that it has.

    NinjaBurger, NinjaBurger, the man of my dreams
    he leapt the tram tearing the marine at the seams.
    He clung to the ceiling in the main aft
    as the rotating lift rotated peered around the corner
    and let out a laugh.
    This marine was alone no one at his back
    he went down the elevator and NinjaBurger followed his tracks.
    As soon as he bit him the marine shouted "Hax! Hax!"


    Good rhyme, I didn't put any thought into mine so =P

    Twas the nite before Kharaasmas,
    Frontiersmen were gonna die
    The Gorges would cook them,
    Into Marine Pie!

    The skulks came to Mobile,
    The lerks decided to fly
    They collected the meat,
    FOR THE GREAT MARINE PIE!

    The comm was scared,
    They had no ammo
    In came a drunk, disgruntled
    YULETIDE RAMBO!

    The Kharra Fled,
    then Saw With Delight
    The Rambo Was Helping
    To Win this Dam Fight!

    The mariens were dead.
    The gorges were at ready
    The pies were a-cooking
    The marines were deady!

    how about that? i like ur poem. is mine nice?

    P.S. the pic is meant to be ns_bast

    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    a ten man HA-Train!

    Stomping throught the halls
    H M Gs throwing lead
    Skulkie at your heels,
    "you stepped on his lil head"
    Servos whine and scream
    The terror's at it's height
    Until that Ono
    came charging in
    from the corridor on the right!

    Im not vicious, I just want a hug.

    Yet another parody from teh crab!


    Silent Bite, Holy bite
    Ow my leg!, that's not right

    Hidden Skulkie, all evil and vile
    Eats my ta-asty Knees,
    Eats my Tasty Knees.

    ns_christmas

    On a quiet, quiet night
    in a quiet, quiet satellite
    Down a quiet, quiet stair
    laid a quiet little commchair
    in a quiet little base.

    in the quiet little base
    laid marines, tired of war
    sleeping ever so soundly
    even through an Onos' snore.

    The Kharaa, out of patience
    fell to sleep at the entrance
    in their everlasting wait
    to defy the turret farm's fate

    and lo, down the chimney, never seen
    for the marines came old Saint Marine.
    and behold, through the vent's forge
    came the Gorge, the Christmas Gorge.

    ever so quiet, ever so cautious
    old Saint Marine moved motionless
    towards the quiet little commchair
    to give each marine their gifts in share.

    for lil' commander Bobby, a siege with bells
    for veteran Billy, candy cane shotty shells.
    poor Rambo Calvin was a naughty boy,
    for him, a welder with antlers, too fitting a toy
    to Sergeant Markie, a stocking with mines
    and for Handyman Kid, a PG that shines.

    whilst the deed was being done
    old Saint Marine was not the only one.
    The Christmas Gorge crept silently too
    as best as a Christmas Fatty could do.

    Hence the Kharaa and Marines were still asleep
    the Christmas Gorge, he crawled, ever so steep
    in silence, tranquility he would not disturb
    as he began to make a DC with a quiet little blurb.

    When the DC Tree was done, to the limit's tally
    out a little chuckle came(For Fatties were very jolly)
    hence there on he decorated without a stop
    with MCs, SCs, and a star-shaped OC on top.
    His work all done, he returned to a Fade
    to Silently Blink to the next Kharaa stop.

    As Old Saint Marine crept back to the chimney
    and Fade the Christmas Fade crept back to the vent
    alas, they beheld each other
    a Silent hiss
    a quiet click
    in what was doubtless to be a noisy fight.

    Old Saint Nick raised his dual HMGs,
    whilst Christmas Fade readied his Rockets
    but then, they stopped, and looked around
    at all the peaceful Kharaa
    all the peaceful Marines
    all asleep on the ground.

    Another glance was all that took
    for Old Saint Marine to lower his guns to the floor.
    with eyes of truth, and a body that shook
    he left it all behind the door
    and approaching the Fade, the Christmas Fade


    he bowed, and said
    "Merry Christmas to you too, Mr. Fade."
