    Could be for the jacked up champ spawns not dropping all the scrolls. Which is strange because we all know that QA tested the hell out of it before they let it roll out.

    A patch and a publish are two different animals.

    You better not breathe,
    You better not move,
    You're better off dead I'm telling you dude
    Santa Claus is gunning you down

    Just got a "shortly" message. Everyone should prolly log out now.
     
  29. I wonder if they'll let us know what this publish is about or will it be one of those secret ones..probably will be if its to fix some kind of exploit.

    I was following your Win98 woes in another thread last night and it's good to know they pushed that fix through. :)

    Some upgrading advice for you or anyone running Win98/2000 and/or old PCs: Look around on Craigslist.org some time. I got hold of a WinXP, 2.10 GH Athlon 64, 6800 Geforce, 250 GB harddrive (basically a big step above what I was upgrading from, and a huge step above your PC) for under 300 dollars. These are tough times and people who build computers for spare cash are giving unbelievable deals. Just be safe and take someone (preferably knowledgeable, and not a wimp) with you if you go to someone's house. I got an excellent deal but man was that guy scary-looking. :)

    Mythic is awesome for such a degree of backwards compatibility, but eventually, they (or someone else) will find a way to build a 3D client that people can't help but fall in love with. And this is coming from someone who is never going to install the KR client.

    Google Shopping is also a good place to look for stuff.

    Wierd thing though, is I'm still in game. And I'm sure it's been more like 4-5 min.

    Scratch that, just went down. :)
