Happy New Years, SEN! I hope that 2014 is everything you hope it'll be! :3

Does anyone have any resolutions? How did you do on last year's resolutions? If you participated in last year's thread, tell us how it went. :)

Last year I said I wanted to learn a "new skill or something..." I guess I accomplished that. My new job is vastly different from the old job I had. I always retaught myself this year how to do some hand sewing and I learned some new origami patterns.

As for this year I don't know what my resolution will be. I still don't particularly like waiting until a specific day to start something new, but there seems to be a lot of things I've recently decided I need to start doing. I need to start going back to the gym, so I guess I'm going to join the New Year's Resolution mobs on that, I'd like to learn more about sewing, namely from patterns, and I would like to start more creative projects altogether. We want to elope this year, but that's the most concrete thing I can think of. Even that I wouldn't be too disappointed if it doesn't happen this year. There's a lot of paperwork associated with marriage. @.@

Let me show you how to hump without making love.

Well, a new career. I have not been able to find anything but part time in my area and get tossed at the end of my probation every time. Honestly, I could care less what it is and as always, will bust my ass... It's just that there is nothing but corporate jobs in my area, so I am at the whim of people that I never even meet. It's pretty crappy.

New Year Resolution? To never make another New Year Resolution ever again.

So far so good. This might be the first I actually succeed at.

We can't explain the universe, just describe it; and we don't know whether our theories are true, we just know they're not wrong. >Harald Lesch

Obligatory joke:
I am still at 1920x1080 (same as last year) and I don't plan on changing that anytime soon.

👻 👾 👽 💪

For 2013:
- Be less lazy.
- Get better at guitar, and actually play complete songs as a band! Maybe even try to get a gig.
- Make a useful/fun/interesting/relevant program.
- I've been slightly less lazy! :awesome:
- I've gotten a bit better, and we do have some mostly complete songs as a band! Still working on a gig (except out practices have been a bit shaky lately ...)
- I've laid out some groundwork for what may amount to be a useful/fun/interesting/relevant program.

So after several years I've still ended up with the same goals and have only slightly realized them. :P I feel better about 2014, though. Almost halfway through the decade and time to leave the bullshit of 2013 behind!

Great Success !

2014 has less goals but make up for it in challenge.

  • Move out

  • Find mate :blush:

I might be in for a stretch with that second one.

I do stuff and thingies... Try widening and reducing the number of small nooks and crannies to correct the problem.

Quote from Ahli
- keep working on map to make it more awesome/unique
- receive bachelor degree
- start master degree (preferable in English at my university) (I already have the required score in a TOEFL test, but my grade might be to bad.)
- learn to do more small talk
- maybe a gf, but I won't enforce it (as it drains time from work :whip: but would be nice, anyway)
- find enough sleep in the night before I have an exam (sometimes I can't sleep at all =/ )
So, the degree is mine and I'm in my masters course with one foot already... I've had a tough year and a tough year is about to start.

I've no real resolutions for this year. I just to try to keep going on without failing too much.

It's still too early to tell!!

I don't think I've posted in one of these before, so I cannot comment on previous resolutions.

Here is my list for this year though:

-Improve my academics: given a school day, study for those courses that I must attend for that day as a minimum guideline for how much I should study.
-Be more open: also, come out to more people, especially if the subject comes to it. I am at least one bi, maybe gay, maybe trans.
-Be more considerate, thoughtful, and rigorous: if I make an assumption, I have to prove it to myself and if I make a prediction, I have to justify it. This process should be thorough and rigorous.
-Program more: participate in an open-source project, or finish a project of my own, or participate in a group project.

Do more math

Continue to produce quality entertainment experiences, secure a viable FTP/hosting environment, deploy a full-length StarCraft: Brood War campaign, and acquire a platform for heightened exposure of my content.

A new year to procrastinate.

I want to list unrealistic goals that I won't actually do.

Such an unrealistic goal. A list would be tedious.

RdeRenato -- If someone can help me, it will make me very happy xd
[2020-3-31. : 4:55 pm]
RdeRenato -- they are right. I don't know how to describe my level but it is difficult for two things: 1. crazy enemies 2. multiple defensive points
[2020-3-31. : 11:01 am]
Sie_Sayoka -- both because of low skill and population on west
[2020-3-31. : 11:01 am]
Sie_Sayoka -- tbh a lot of the korean maps are impossible to play with pubs
[2020-3-31. : 5:14 am]
jjf28 -- forcing players to be quicker means they'll have to multi-task more/up the APMs and use less safe approaches or have gotten the approaches down to an art so they can perform them quickly without much time to think
[2020-3-31. : 5:10 am]
jjf28 -- I'd say best way to increase difficulty is to make the enemy units behave smarter, followed by forcing humans to move quicker (timers, or some mechanism forcing them forward), followed by beefing numbers/stats
[2020-3-31. : 3:39 am]
jjf28 -- a huge part of special forces is game knowledge, mapping out the spawn timings, what triggers different traps, what units combine into others, they're definitely not intended to be friendly games

lil-Inferno -- RdeRenato
RdeRenato shouted: people, how do you do to verify a super difficult level if you play bad? :(
get someone better than you to play it
[2020-3-30. : 10:16 pm]
MTiger156 -- Sadly, I've often seen the exact opposite happen. "Special Forces" maps typically try to kill the entire team within the first 60 seconds... try to stay away from that approach.
[2020-3-30. : 10:05 pm]
MTiger156 -- ahh... philosophy of Difficulty. There is no single answer for "how much is enough?". That should be left to the players, thus I highly recommend multiple Difficulty Modes for PvE maps.
