Principia Discussion / Re: The Discordian Society on Facebook

Too much noise for my preference, on like 99% of them.  Also, facebook sucks.  Also, kids who think /b/ is edgy and the acme of trolling is calling someone a "nigger" or "cunt".

I find that they are perfectly described by Ron Paul's "Fuckboi" rant.

"The Discordian society 2014" has interesting stuff posted on it but it's not as active as it could be.

"The Discordian Society" On the other hand is barely readable, drowned by idiots and Ha-Ha-Hilareous ironic Misogynist shit but has a lot of members, some of which are intelligent and interesting but didn't know where else to look.

For the latter I only join it for short bursts before it becomes too banal I leave it, I only have a certain amount of time in the day to read stuff online, I don't want to spend it scrolling past that garbage.

This is basically what I do, usually spending a week or so stirring it with a stick to reveal people I want to be my friends, and then leaving again.

What sort of mods do you use?

I like the heat sink, multi-hack, and shields. Also I don't know if you've figured out what power cubes do yet, but if your XM is low you can go into your inventory and deploy one to boost it back up... very useful in prolonged attacks. I just figured that out this morning.

That's pretty much what I did during lunch.  There was one portal I wanted, so I basically just kept walking around the area, farming blasters and going back for another round. 

It's odd how attahed one gets to a portal.  I suppose this is sort of like virtual territorial pissing contests.

It totally is. I'm really attached to the dog park, because DOG PARK. I own the DOG PARK.

Higher levels can take out lower-level resonators like butter with a hot knife, though. My current nemesis undid all my brand-new fully-linked portals in literally the time it took me to walk away from them.

Ah, the not crossing thing was what was confusing me.  Yeah, I have tons of portal keys.  In a way, it's a good thing my block got hammered, because it broke all these wack-ass fields that had been building up.

Yeah, the fact that territories are so transient really helps keep the game fun and challenging. Also the fact that lower levels can destroy higher level resonators if you just keep hammering away at them.

This morning, the Resistance took the water towers and the Whole Foods. The bourgeois scum seek to control XM completely, and keep it from the hands of the people, and our betterment. We are weak; our forces are not enough. Backed into our ghettoes, our territory diminishes hourly. A powerful Level 7 Smurf scum has taken the garden, and I, a lowly level 3, cannot long hold the dog park against him. Pym has vanished. I fear that soon I, too, shall perish.

I just got Lvl 4 today.  You probably know this, but you get about 100AP every time you hack a Resistance portal.  Just walking around and hacking can get you to level up that way.  But the Lvl 5 limit is 150k.  That's gonna take a while.

I'm gonna level up today (when I go out for pho) attacking enemy portals, and then try to rebuild my neighborhood fields. I'll try to make some headway before Pym gets out of school.

YES I AM playing with a 14-year-old boy, WHY YOU LOOKIN AT ME LIKE THAT? :lol:

Yeah, a portal inside a larger field is pretty much useless, isn't it?

You can still link it to create sub-fields, which strengthens all of the connected portals and makes them harder to take over.


Ah.  Gotcha.

I'm trying to figure out how the system determines which portals you can link to.  I seem to be unable to choose at will.


Also, my workplace just got attacked pretty hard.  It's difficult to stay at my desk rather than run out defending my portals.  Guess I'm hooked.

I know, right?? I woke up with a screaming hangover, for which there is really only two good cures (sex or pho) and immediately jumped out of bed, leaving behind a perfectly good boyfriend, to defend my portals that were under attack.

Some tips on linking; you can't cross another link, you have to have the portal keys to both portals you wish to link, and the distance that can be linked is dependent on the level of the resonators on that portal. Portal keys are single-use. As such, I make it a habit (in all of my what, three days playing this?) to try to have portal keys for as many portals as I can at any given time, in case links get broken, so I can quickly repair them without running around to every portal in my neighborhood.

Nah, that's cool... I can just feed my children twigs and we'll huddle together for warmth while I study by candlelight.
