  2. Can Atlantis go on forever??

    And it is easy for me to argue otherwise. Again, that's one of the great things about statistics. They (as a general rule) can be manipulated to support the point that one is attempting to make. The data is the data. How you choose to interpret it, well, that's another thing entirely. You say it makes it hard for you to consider other possibilities other than A. I say that I can see your interpretation A but I also can see other potential, just as possible interpretations B, C, D, etc. Which one of those two positions is more likely to be biased. Nope, I don't know where that silly little thought would have popped into my head from either. That, and I'm pretty sure I haven't been sadistic in any of my language either.

    Oh yes. This is especially useful when one focuses only on the single anomaly, ignoring any others. The great thing about statistical analysis, the one thing it can be counted on for, is to provide the support necessary for a claim that is being made. Humans have been using them to prove their point for as long as they have walked this earth. Nevermind completion or validity, as long as its factual. See, here's the issue that I have with your analysis. You're argument rests on two legs (bipedal conveyence - requiring continual adjustment to remain upright but never able to become stable of itself, only present the facade of stability, second only to unipedal conveyence which is so easily identified by its obvious instability and need to jump about to remain upright). Nonetheless, your analysis rests on the two counter claims that Thai Legion multiscopes which is cheating and that Swarm and Faceless do not. Therefore, all multiscoping should be punished. Lets examine this a bit. Your first point - that Thai Legion multiscopes. Based on your data, the best you can claim is that they potentially multiscope. Even for all your efforts at collecting and organizing the statistics so nice and neately, you still can't get to the point of "it is proven thus". The entirety of this argument rests on the assertion "there is a pronounced increase to deployment along the line of analysis for Legion. The only way this is possible is through multiscoping". Just looking at the statement reveals how riduculous, ignorant and biased it is. Your second point is truly enjoyable. It goes something like this; because Thai Legion multiscopes, then all Legion multiscopes. Because multiscoping is cheating and all cheating should be punished, all multiscoping should be punished. Lets think about this for a moment. Multiscoping (to the latest definition that I am aware of, is the deployment of =/>50% of deployments by two players occuring within 1 km of each other within a 60 minute window) is cheating. Riddle me this - do you really think that you could throw this into a Venn diagram and make it work? I can think of at least four scenarios where this assertion would most likely place the presenter at mortal risk of removal from the gene pool before they had the opportunity to infect it with their stupidity. All the way through this little diatribe above you, and our obtuse friends from Faceless have maintained the argument against Legion, which I think does much more to reveal your antagonistic attitudes than it does to prove or disprove anything regarding multiscoping or Legion cheating. In either case, you've all gotten what you wanted. If my family, friends and I are hobbled because of the snivelling of others within Atlantis we will have to be content with the knowledge that Atlantis is only temporary and is just as easily won by convincing others to either rage quit or convert and the recruitment of new players. It is, in the end, all about the volume isn't it? Whats more, it is extremely satisfying to watch as Faceless and Swarm use all them qubes only to see them miss the qredit return. Hmmmmm. I wonder if that isn't what is really the source of all this angst?
  4. Can Atlantis go on forever??

    So roughly what everyone is getting down to is a general air of being PO'ed that yet again, those jerks from Legion are taking an interest in something and having done so, are bringing their undenied but often decried coordination and massing capabilities to the table to dominate? They should be ashamed of themselves for even daring to do so. And the multiscoping. How dare they!!! Silver should burn all their accounts for daring to do such. No one else does and it is grossly unfair for them to do so. Funny, I don't remember anyone crying when Legion was losing. Perhaps, some perspective - Suck it up buttercups, there's no crying in QONQR!
