Progressive is not dead
« on: March 16, 2012, 08:56:51 PM »
Kinda weird how this particular style has crossed over so many different genres over the years while still kinda being considered a genre in and of itself. A few examples of how it crosses genres. Still basically all the in the "rock" category, although the early classic rock pioneers of it tended to delve into lighter textures than most of the bands that carry the torch today are willing to do.

You forgot the main one:  Dream Theater.

They've always been damn good, with world-class musicians that actually know what the fuck they're doing.  Highly intellectual music.  The chord changes they explore borders on atonality, and only the pure true music lovers eat this shit up.  :)  The piano player is a devout lover of classical music.  The motherfucker sounds like Liszt with some of his chops.  The guitar player also excellent.

Their newest one's pretty good:

Really excellent stuff.

Pretty new band coming out of Sweden I believe. A little freakish in appearance, reminds me of King Diamond/Mercyful Fate, but musically sound a lot more like some old Blue Oyster Cult or Black Sabbath or really early Mercyful Fate. So far, they seem to be gaining a pretty nice little following, but I'm not sure they'll ever make it through underground status with their gaudy makeup and costumes they use for live shows. Also, lyrics are VERY occult themed just like Mercyful Fate. All-in-all, they're damn near a Mercyful Fate tribute band without actually playing any Mercyful Fate tunes.

Satcha... sacka... fuck it, copy and paste.

Satchitananda - A Thought Away (1978) (Full Album)

Never heard of this band/group before today. YouTube was finally useful for something. Very keyboard heavy, but certainly a great portrait of everything prog in the 70's was supposed to be.

Shoutbox isn't the place for rehashing this. Here's the thread about DM server spawn farthest from 2006/2007:

but that's *NOT what the DM server is supposed to cater to

Punk_FAS

It's not ideal for 1v1 situations, but that's what the DM server is supposed to cater to. Also, there are 7 other maps besides DM4 (actually 8 for the automatic mymap map between dm8 and dm1). I think there are more positives than negatives.

Punk_FAS

August 03, 2020, 11:20:06 AM
It happens to better players too. I know I've been in first, or second place, only to die and spawn right next to the other leading player multiple times in a row, and having to dodge rockets in a narrow corridor without any weapons myself (other than blaster).

It's not the best for 1v1 situation

Punk_FAS

August 03, 2020, 11:17:56 AM
I saw a clearly-new player earlier, and it spawned him like 3 or 4 times in a row right next to a better player. Instant death each time they spawned. I imagine that can be discouraging and frustrating, particularly when someone is trying to get a handle on the game. Spawn farthest would avoid this.

Might be interesting to code a hybrid spawn function that doesn't focus on "farthest" so much as avoiding the few most congested spawn points?

We'd tried spawn farthest many moons ago, but it seemed a net negative overall. At least for larger maps like q2dm4, where one tends to get spawned furthest from all the action.

In any case, we have a 1-second spawn protect shield, and it has been suggested if THAT isn't good enough, one might consider transitioning to Minesweeper or Candy Crush. ;)
