I vouch for Razer Deathadder. Amazing mouse. Great drivers. I have had so many MX518's break up.
Now I just need to buy a new one and these ones cost 80 euros. Brr..in What mouse do you "pwn" with in NS2? Comment by Jiriki July 2015
Good luck from me aswell!
Interesting. I have 144Hz screen but I'd like to have IPS colour too. Hopefully OLED or IPS or something will bring that.in For The Love Of Monitors... Comment by Jiriki January 2015
Thanks for continuing the (E)NSL head adminship! And agreed with Tane, you also deserve thanks for starting the video-casting culture in NS -- those videos are great. I get an itch to play NS1 when I watch them. Brings back memories! It was fun play…in Thank you. Comment by Jiriki June 2014
1. Play competitively, and try to get as good as team as possible.
2. Play older shooters like QL and Warsow competitively. Completely underrated trick in the book.
3. Spectate better players and analyze what they are doing
4. Reco…in Improving overall skill - Methods? Comment by Jiriki January 2014
Peak oil, I don't disagree but how much are you long on oil stocks? Words are cheap.
Look, to make things simple economic growth is a easily misunderstood concept and certain envinronmental movements have lambasted the w…
Overuse in farm but also prescription-free use on humans. This is rampant especially in Asia (China leading the growth).
Phage therapy sounds interesting. Is that in vitro or tissue sample? (this is the question I got asked by an antibio…in The antibiotics crisis Comment by Jiriki December 2013
Yep, been waiting for this for quite some time. Eve online didn't do justice to original Freelancer, which I still have great memories of playing with various friends both in LAN and Online. Eve never had the dogfighting capability that made Freelan…in Roberts Space Industries Comment by Jiriki December 2013
tl;dr Here's a nice video about developed vs developing countries. Developing countries are what our countries were before economic progress.

(Quote) My point here was that in capitalism most companies are run in centralized fashion like socialist states (there are exceptions to this rule you wouldn't even know how close), and yet they succeed. Rob was trying to say that centrally-plan…
(Quote) Most of the shit NSA is doing in terms of privacy wouldn't be acceptable here (in Finland). I think big problem is that people like to use government to do a lot of things, and hand over a lot of power to them. If there is anything you c…
Are you guys kidding with me with this nonsense?
(Quote) No you wouldn't. Stop going mad over things you don't understand, smart people love to use people like that for their own personal movements, cults and other nonsense.
Way too many games of either intense battle or intense trolling to remember really. Oh man.
Most epic comeback was a pcw, where aliens rushed our CC and killed the commander. Then two guys trap and kill their lerk in vent. Then we…in Favorite NS memory Comment by Jiriki December 2013On a side note, I have almost got myself VAC banned by forgetting movie edition on and using pixel shaders in NS1.in A frank NS2WC discussion Comment by Jiriki December 2013(Quote) I would recommend reading David Friedman's essay capitalist trucks vs socialist trucks. Don't get me wrong. There're many things I do not…It's like yesterday I read these forums, and people were whining torment Archaea was dominating, and torment Archaea is making the game too boring and should be banhammered.
As for the topic, I have no clue but what kind of serial failur…Congratulations to getting this thing funded. It's amazing to see such big money prizes in Natural Selection.in The NS2WC is go! - Natural Selection 2 Comment by Jiriki November 2013(Quote)
You know guys, there is actual research into institutions. Have you read a textbook on public choice? You might order that book, read a few pages, think …Good work! You could consider doing a comic strip like Retales did!in NS2oons Comment by Jiriki October 2013All I can say is, Tane is a big fan of Sun Tzu.in Sun Tzu said... Comment by Jiriki September 2013Amusing video!Yeah that is one issue making things easier can actually backfire for new players.
I remember when blink-swipe changing was made easy in 3.2 (you could just hold right-mouse button to blink) and lots of bad fades become mediocre f…in Hold Space to Queue Jumps Comment by Jiriki August 2013Yes, do it like in Warsow. Holding space should be enough. I should have said this before.in Hold Space to Queue Jumps Comment by Jiriki August 2013Yes king_yo was right. Medpacks, when spammed, should counter all alien attacks. In NS1, the medspammed marine either died because commander missed the med, didn't have enough resources or someone had focus. But keeping a guy alive like that with on…in Medspam and jumping ever going to be changed? Comment by Jiriki July 2013Medspamming was a commander skill in NS1, an important one at that. Good medspam made a difference between epic frag, won round and waste of res. I think one of the crucial difference between commanders was how well they used their resources on medp…in Medspam and jumping ever going to be changed? Comment by Jiriki July 2013I think prima facie, NS2 is more complicated than NS1.
But people getting stomped when joining a game the first time. Well you can do a lot about.
I don't see how high-level gameplay changes matter that much if you have guys …Look at QuakeLive, ranked servers, works.
1. Use something that ranks player skill such as gametime, K/D, Win/Loss, ELO or TrueSkill (from worst to best).
2. Allow cvars that prohibit too good players joining the game.
3. Pos…in Lets brainstorm ideas on how to balance servers Comment by Jiriki July 2013
