Is Attack of the B-Team Boring???

Recommended Posts

you might have to be trifle less obtuse.

"Saying that throwing punches is childish and beneath me is, in effect, throwing a punch at everyone else that you feel DID throw punches."

This is a self-referencing contradiction, and actually funny as hell when you consider that you are referring to yourself as childish and beneath yourself.

 

Man, I miss the days back when I used to be able to say that kind of thing with a straight face... hypocrisy is so much easier and more fun than self awareness :P.

 

"Anyone that says the word 'jerk' is a total jerk, unlike me."

 

you are quite welcome to throw punches at me if you feel the need to do so. I enjoy it. Call me a masochist.

 

seriously, though I am quite interested to see what the devs have to say about this entire thread in the morning. It should be highly amusing.

Why are you trying to goad me into attacking you? And why is me stating I'm not going to participate in such attacks me actually attacking everyone who did participate? I really don't understand you, and why you feel the need to instigate or rather manifest some problem I have with anyone here that doesn't even exist. I mean read back over everything people have said, and then read the few things I said which were mostly stating some problems with the modpack and how I got no response since everyone was busy going off topic and insulting eachother. Can you really deny that happened? And now I just get sarcasm and strange accusations that have me really confused. Sorry for trying to keep with the topic that the OP wanted to address in the first place instead of going on this crazy tangent like everyone else has.

This thread died about 6 pages ago, trying to rescue it is beyond hopeless and probably beneath you.

 

Anyway, the flight thing you brought up...well, it is pointless to worry about any sort of balance issues in a mod pack that farts in the face of any sort of seriousness and "balance".

 

And lastly...Wow there are lot of people taking a block game far too seriously.

 

Me? I think I'll go riding a dinosaur as a ghast wearing a pig for a hat and wielding a frying pan into the nearest village and steal all of their carrots.

I've been somewhat regularly reading these forums for ages. Never particularly felt like making an account, till this.

 

This is some of the highest concentration levels of ridiculously pointless bullshit I've seen in ages.
 

This comes off  as some kind of school yard shouting match, but with more personal attacks.

 

Normally when I see this kind of shit online, I laugh a bit and move on. But I just gotta say I had the impression that many of you were better than the ridiculous waste of time and effort this whole thread is. With the speed this thread's growing, I guess I was shitting myself. So maybe if I come along and point out how silly this whole argument is it might sink in or something. But hey, so far I've been wrong.
 

TL;DR: The ridiculousness of this thread is moving ahead at full Ludicrous Speed.

Since she isn't someone who works on the mod pack you shouldn't expect her to be the one to solve its problems, and there are problems. Like she was saying some of the mods do sort of negate one another. You can do something somewhat difficult in order to be able to fly in any morph and lose the ability once you die, or just simply go into a cave and kill a bat and fly whenever you want and even fit into one square areas. Also there's the whole problem of hamsters not spawning in the wild and I think wolves as well. I was actually really bummed to find out I was scouring the world for a hamster just to find out a glitch is preventing them to appear.

CanVox is working on fixing the hamster issue. I wasn't aware about wolves either but I guess I haven't seen any either now that I think about it. I will bug him about it.

 

In regards to bats being overpowered, well... that's intentional design. I know it conflicts with flight from genetics but it doesn't change the fact that we weren't trying to nitpick balance everything in the pack.

When things get batshit insane, you can either ignore the madness as Punk did and end up bewildered, or embrace the crazy train and ride it into the ground.

Oh man this thread! I was like "man the whalebox hasn't gotten anything new in a while, maybe I should reopen this thing." and wow. A site called dudequest, someone talking about their fedora collection, and about a dozen people saying they're not angry while calling others angry.

I'm glad we could get to the bottom of that bat thing guys!

Yeah, we know about the hamster thing, we're not happy about it, and certainly I'm down with feedback of that sort.  I'm not really against feedback saying the balance is totally sideways, but I will respond and say that I don't care, and the real question is why does anyone else?  It's not like flight is the only thing that advanced genetics offers- it also offers the ability to BLOW YOURSELF THE FUCK UP and that's awesome.  More importantly, flight being this uber-difficult target is something that comes as a directly lilne from EE2, then graviton suit, to a lesser extent MPS (although I will remind you that the original MPS, flight wasn't that hard to obtain and only went that direction after Muse was pressed into making things more "balanced").  My point is that this pack rejects the concept of balance.  If you want to do something fun, then just go do it.  

 

I reject the idea that this is somehow good for youtubers who have fun on camera and play pranks on each other all day but bad for ordinary users.  Why is there a dichotomy?  The B-Team is deriving hours of crazy fun from this pack, why can't users derive fun in exactly the same manner?  There's nothing magic about starting up a camera, just turn into a bee and go make a voodoo doll of someone and drown yourselves with it, and then laugh about it.  It doesn't have to be a big production.  If the journey of running quarries and sitting at a project table for half an hour is part of the fun for you, Tekkit's not going anywhere.  That's our position, and it's not changing.  If that positions is so baffling that you literally CANNOT wrap your mind around it, I'd step back and do some soul-searching about why this appalls you so much.  If you just understand but disagree, that's different and fine.

 

This thread has gone completely off the rails.  Just for the record, if you're type of person who collects hats, posts on the red pill, and uses phrases like "social justice warrior" with that smug twist in your mouth, I want nothing to do with you.  That said, the OP was being kind of a jerk.  It wasn't even the OP that bothered me, it was that she immediately got a rather straightforward, civil, and I think well-crafted response from sct and rebutted WOAH BUDDY SORRY IF I OFFENDED YOU THERE WITH MY BOLD TRUTHTELLING TO POWER, and that's obnoxious.  The fact that sct came back smug & dismissive shouldn't be a surprise.  We're not made of stone.  If people abuse us, they'll get abused back.  I think we have a responsibility to de-escalate (that is, give less than we get), and the staff has consistently done that.  But people lashing out at us and playing hurt when we don't do the customer service drone BEEP BOOP THANK YOU FOR YOUR FEEDBACK SIR shit are really getting to me.

 

The sum-up:

 

 - Please feel free to post feedback here.

 - Mods need to stop being dicks about us receiving feedback.

 - If you act like a dick when you deliver feedback, the above doesn't apply.

 - We're not going to ban people for acting like scum offsite.

 - If I see people acting like scum in this thread from here on out, I will infract even if the mods are not willing to.

 

Thank you, come again.

Think its time for me to back away slowly and let the kid-I mean men handle this. The point of my post was never attacking any one people or even a group of people yet this spiraled into what I can only equate to as a scummy 4chan topic. sorry to those that wanted to discuss the topic at hand, sorry to people that got butthurt over my opinion and to every one else I'm not going to be replying to this virtual boxing rink. The idea of telling people not to support this thread was that if you where going to reply simply to attack me for having an opinion then to keep it to themselves but clearly things are way off topic and there is no way to quell this forum bar fight.

 
ryokashit I am sorry to you for having to defend the OP and you where right, it was not constructive (I was kidding my self to think so) but this whole thing is nothing more then trying to convince the koolaid drinkers there god is not real and they shouldn't kill every one including themselves to defend it.
 
 
Punk I am sorry to you for the immense amount of hate that will not allow you to discuss what I had intended with this post. hopefully some one that is not a woman, furry or has any thing negative to say about the pack will post something and you can post there.
 
this topic died the moment some one took what I said to heart and had felt like they needed to be a white knight for men that (as staff) cant defend themselves (sarcasm)

if you read the whole tread you'd know i wasn't talking to him.

actually, this topic was dead after the words "Hello my name is". it just went downhill from there.

 

Oh, and BTW, 'hate' is not a good euphemism for 'anything I disagree with'. trying to assume that people defending others from insults are practicing 'hate speech' is creepy on an entirely new level.

"We will put to death anyone that does not practice tolerance, and the beatings will continue until morale improves!"

 

If you turn this thread into an argument about whether your creepy MRA shit constitutes hate speech, I will ban you.

 

EDIT:  That goes for everyone else!  Don't respond to the post I quoted!

 

EDIT 2: Or this one!

Honestly dude, not an MRA. neoreactionary and military science fiction indy game writer. a lot of the same terms just get bandied about when discussing futurism. Maybe once was, but it's hard to sustain sympathy for folks that bring it on themselves. I just kicked into 'defensive analysis' mode when I started seeing the same 'style' of posting used here that I used to see by the trolls on huffpo, Jezebel, and manboobz. My sincere apologies. Frankly I just totally love the idea behind AOTB

The topic died the moment you posted sorry. Your OP was both rude and terrible, lacking any shred of constructive value as you yourself admit here. It would have been locked immediately had there not been left open the chance for real constructive discussion or comedy. You and everyone else in here failed to achieve either. I am very aware that this thread seems to have attracted a very unwelcome collection of people with poor opinions and behaviour, but don't for a second try to act like you're not one of them. You started this, and then you fueled it with rude and snarky posting, giving criticism but not accepting criticism yourself.

 

I'll be punishing people who refuse to behave themselves, but I want you to know that I take issue with your attitude. You are not a "victim" on internet minecraft forums. You are just one of several rude obnoxious participants in a dumb argument in a bad thread that you started. Get that straight before you make any more posts here or anywhere really because I don't care about genders or opinions or beliefs when I sit down to moderate. Just behaviour.

      We host independently from Zilacon's own privately hosted dedicated servers.
      (Bungeecord, Vanilla, & Tekkit Classic are on a paid host. All others are hosted by Zilacon)
      I pride myself in hosting and managing high performance servers with virtually zero down time. All of our servers have deadlock, lag, and crash detection.
      Automated restart scripts, entity clearing/merging, spawn limits, timing adjustments, etc. To make the server run as smooth as possible.
      Our servers normally maintain 19-20 TPS no matter what. If you experience any type of lag with a good ping to the network, please contact us so we can look into it.
      Me and my staff team are available almost 24/7 on our discord server.
      On APOC we have many gameplay styles for you to choose from, along with over a dozen modpacks and servers to play on.
      All of our servers (excluding skyblock modpacks) have all of the features below.

      Server Features:
      Always Online: Dedicated, optimized, built for performance servers since 2010. Our servers are fully automated with almost zero need for human intervention to remain online and running smooth. Multiworld: We have worlds for PVP and PVE. These worlds are Survival (PVE/GriefPrevention Protection), Factions (PVP/Factions Protection), and Towny (PVP/Towny Protection). PVP worlds allow griefing and raiding by following the rules within the factions and towny plugins for war. Survival is PVE only and uses GriefPrevention for its protections. Custom Economy (APOC-Payday): Our economy is like no other, with one giant plugin (APOC-Payday) this plugin offers rewards for over 30 gameplay activities from killing mobs/players to crafting items. It also rewards you for voting with keys/kits to redeem for items and economy/exp/claimblocks. Our plugin also handles sign shops, player plots, automatic ranking, online/login rewards, and much more. Admin & Player Shops: We provide basic vanilla items in the spawn tower for admin shops. And we leave the modded side for players to buy a plot in spawn, create a shop, and select their items and prices for their shop. We encourage a competitive player market on APOC. Our admin shops will not interfere with selling modded items. Custom /help Commands: We have a custom menu of /help commands that explain everything on apoc. How to use our economy, claim systems, worlds, voting, shops, teleportation and homes, and much more. If these help commands cannot answer your questions, staff are available on the servers or on discord. MCMMO & APOC-RPG: All of our servers come equipped with MCMMO and APOC-RPG which adds skills, bonus drops for actions, custom enchanted item drops from mobs, and randomly placed chests or structures with loot inside in the worlds. Bungeecord: Our custom bungeecord server allows clients of any version to connect to our network & servers. Once connected to the server of your choice, you can communicate with everyone from every server, and see everyone who is online in the tab list from all servers. Looking for Staff:
      We are seeking active staff members for all servers on apoc. If you are interested in any position please apply on the links below. We are looking for java developers and server staff.

      Voting for our network on one of the 36 vote sites listed on our /vote command in game or on our site at http://apocgaming.org/vote will give you 1 Common Key and 1 VoteKey. Common keys are one of 4 types of item reward keys issued on the servers. These keys can be earned by voting, being online, or logging in daily. When redeemed they will give you one item out of a long list of possible rewards. The higher grade the key is the better the rewards. Redeeming keys like Common have a chance to upgrade to Uncommon, and Uncommon to Rare, etc. Vote Keys are issued only for voting for sites, they give 1 EXP Level, $100 Economy, and 10 Claimblocks. We also reward for reviewing our network/servers on vote sites and forums like this (technic). If you enjoy our servers, please write us a review by replying to this topic for $2500 Economy and 3 Rare keys as a reward. If you got any suggestions or ideas for improvement, we are open to change. Just let us know!

      Hey All,
      Brand new to Technic, but been wanting to do this for a while. Only issue is, on my laptop I cannot actually play the AotBT modpack despite installing it. The download & installation seems to complete fine, but I never actually get to see the play button. I know what should be happening as I've installed and played AotBT on my desktop, where it worked fine.
      I have tried:
      - Deleting the pack and redownloading/installing it via the delete pack button, bottom right of modpacks tab
      - Reinstalling the pack via the modpack options menu
      - Restarting my laptop
      - Restarting the Technic launcher
      This problem also persists with other modpacks (I tried Blightfall and got the same issue).
      I am using the current default minecraft Java, 1.8.0_191 64-bit, with 3GB of RAM set in the launcher options.
      Any help is greatly appreciated.
      Latest log (Including installing Blightfall) is here.

      every time i try to load a world my game crashes
      Here's the crash log
      https://pastebin.com/E44HMArb  
    • By NickFlame42
      So, I've been experiencing something I can only explain as a glitch. Whenever I download AotBT,  it stops at 14% and says:
       
      Error downloading a file for the following pack: Attack of the B-Team
      Failed to download https://mirror.technicpack.net/Technic/mods/tconstruct-v1.5.5.7.zip
      Please consult the modpack author.
       
      I have Java 64-bit Version 1.8.0_131, and 2 gigs of ram allocated out of 4 gigs. Can anyone help me?  This is driving me insane!
    • By Perikins
      just installed the technic launcher and attack of the b-team on this computer (my daughter's) yesterday.  After upgrading to 64 bit java so it would free up enough ram, it worked all day yesterday.  Today, the launcher will start minecraft, it will make it though the load screen, but after selecting a world to load, it starts loading various pieces, then boom, it shoots back to the launcher with no warning.  
      A crash report is attached.
       
      Thank you for any help.
