Sooo...new IItems system comes up, and suddenly I can't use my (incredibly expensive) energy drinks anymore as a robot. Is this intended functionality? If so...robots are now the weakest race in the game, stamina-wise. I worked it out a little, but basically, if robots can't use energy drinks, then they can potentially do the absolute least amount of stuff in a gameday (as opposed to expensively being able to do the most building in a single gameday, like before)
Haven't been paying attention lately, but I can't cook anymore as a Robot either.
Is that related to the Energy Drink situation?
Apparently this is how it was supposed to be all along, and CMJ did not know that it wasn't. Meanwhile, all of his players have known, all along, that robots did have a few ways to get stamina boosts -- and we all of us used them... assuming that how it was, was how it was supposed to be!
I am keeping my fingers crossed, hoping that the planned "pub" in CC404 will include a robot charging station amongst its many (presumably robot-oriented) facilities. Oh! and the ability to pick up some energy-to-go in the form of compact portable power-packs would also be a very welcome addition.
In other words... let's not assume, any more, that how it is is how it's supposed to be and how it will always continue to be. Yes, things just got quite a bit worse for robots, but soon they may get a lot better, and the end state may be much more fun to play than... how it was.
I'm sure that How it will be will be very interesting. I never liked How it was. Unless this is a Islandized version of the Christmas Carol...
In that case I'm not a big fan of How it will be...he doesn't talk much. Just throws you in holes and points at things. Not a very nice fellow at all.
No no no!
This is the Islandized version of the Christmas Carol.
And how do you know he wasn't pouring vodka on it in preparation for some flagrant flame?
