In my tribute to Two Years of playing TSTO, (sheesh…it makes me a little embarrassed to even type those words) I am looking back on highlights and lowlights of the game, and asking YOUR opinion (which I will promptly disregard, as it is my blog and I am the “expert”). Ok. So maybe that is a bit harsh…but let’s face it. Outside of some casual interplay between towns, it isn’t like you can really interact with real people on a daily basis, which leads to isolationism that can lead to all sorts of social disorders in your perception of self-importance.
Understanding and recognizing that you may in fact NOT be the most important person that ever played the game of TSTO is the first step toward recovery. I have done my best to recognize that fact in myself…and have apparently failed miserably, as it is not stopping me from declaring the changes in the game that I deem to be the worst ideas ever.
This is by no means a comprehensive list…as it is clear that most of the updates and some of the dialogue (often laden with typos) is being done by the seat of their collective pants. (is the plural of pants, still pants? Man…I can’t remember that one…need to Google it). Ah…that’s better.
I suspect it really has more to do with how silly one would feel writing the sentence, “flying by the seat of their collective pantses.” It just looks wrong. But, I digress…
Back to TSTO’s most disastrous game-changers!
