And, amongst other things, the Wargaming shitshow just keeps on rolling.


  1. Careful Jingles. Don’t show the normies your power level.

  2. New Torpedo bug!!! 0~o Has the US Navy’s Bureau of Ordnance been up to their usual shenanigan’s again???? >~<

  3. Yes! This is exactly like the Mechwarrior Online aiming bug waaaay back in the Founders days. For a couple weeks, shots deviated toward a compass direction, I think it was North, to the point where if you were facing south your lasers would hit almost 100 meters left or right of your point of aim. If you were facing East or West the deviation was smaller. I wonder what’s actually going on here.

  4. Honestly of the two torpedo bugs I prefer the old one. At least that one was predictable and easy to understand and compensate for.

  5. “Arma 3” Starting wars since stupid people believed everything anyone in authority said.

  6. Antonio Saavedra A.

    Gnei was one of the most hard-working, dedicated, centered, caring, and also very kind person (something rare on Wargaming) that was thrown under the bus twice! First to cover the arse of possibly Ev1n during the first days of the Yukon debacle and finally, he was used as the ultimate sacrifice for the blood-thirsty russian overlords. Adding salt to the wound, he was my former ST mentor.

  7. for those who play wot, lets paint mauschen (little mouse) WHITE
    just to make statement: remember LWM!

  8. Putt’s Law: “Technology is dominated by two types of people, those who understand what they do not manage and those who manage what they do not understand.”

    Putt’s Corollary: “Every technical hierarchy, in time, develops a competence inversion.” with incompetence being “flushed out of the lower levels” of a technocratic hierarchy, ensuring that technically competent people remain directly in charge of the actual technology while those without technical competence move into management.

    • Compare this to the “peter principle,” thought as more or less “satire”… nowadays more something “like sad but true”

    • Also compare this to an Interview by Steve Jobs during the 90s where he talked about the downfall of Xerox. Basically, those who are responsible for the success of a product, aka marketing people, get promoted, while those who actually know how to make a good product stay on the lower end or get booted to save money.

  9. arma series being “accidentally” used in news and documentaries this would be the 5th time ive heard it happen; first time was back near the release of arma 2 where it was used as live footage of IRA in a documenty

  10. The Chancellor Getaran

    I’d say the protagonist from Far Cry 2 was pretty good, Also FC3 was only available until the 11th of September

  11. Sequential Bug Chasing…
    Every coder’s nightmare.

    Also: I’m seeing an increase ships leaping out of the water when destroyed. Doesn’t harm gameplay, but it *is* a bit startling.

  12. Nerf, the unlikely company providing means for dedicated nerds to have working props that don’t cost an arm, a leg, and your most functional kidney.

  13. 99 little bugs in the code,
    99 little bugs in the code.
    Take one down,
    patch it around,
    117 little bugs in the code.


  14. Cabbage Mechanic definitely deserves respect for that move.

  15. As for colouring etc, look up ‘Firearms Expert Reacts to Aliens Fireteam Elite’s Guns’ on here. The chap from Royal Armouries discusses the firearms in the game vs the films & comics, plus some real world thinking on the designs. He shows off one of the original Pulse Rifles from Aliens that they have in the collection.

  16. On colors: In the original Star Trek, Cpt. Kirk’s shirt was green but looked gold on film, so yes that can happen with certain colors. Also, B-17s were painted a dark olive drab that over time faded to purple/brown due to UV exposure at altitude.

    • It was to do with the fabric they used for the standard shirts under studio lighting. Kirk also had the open front shirt which was the same shade of green, but made of different fabric which still looked green under the studio lighting.

  17. Jingles, you CAN tell whether a politician is lying: his mouth is moving and sound is coming out.

  18. Me, following Jingles flight path along on Google Earth: It truly is remarkable how little of Switzerlands Alps he manages to show regarding his overlay at the beginning. Please never change, let me enjoy finding discrepancies like these!
