Universities: A Fatal Error.

Day 1,828, 12:19 Published in Ireland Ireland by Dr. Pierre Chang

A big issue that has always happened and will always happen is that people try to act like this game is an accurate representation of real life. Now you may be thinking well duh, I don't wake up in the morning click a button and then go back to bed and say "Golly, what a tiring day of labour that was" but hear me out.

Trying to pretend the Dail is something more than it actually is; carrying over national grudges from RL to the game (UK Hate par example) and now we have a university?

The point of eRep is to escape life's bullshit. We don't come here to stress ourselves further with an additional layer of learning when I'm already up to my liathroidi in coursework and barely have time to eat let alone think. This is why universities in the game never EVER work. The only people with time to do them are the extremely young and inattentive. One minute they're fired up to learn a new skill, the next they're cracking one off to pictures of Natalia.

So IrishGawain, 10 internet points for innovation but save yourself the bother. I'm sure your party has a better way to waste 525 IEP.

On an unrelated note, I may or may not be contributing to the new eRTE scheme. Keep your eyes posted 🙂

Good points Dr. (btw which eRep institution did you get your credentials from)

The university could work if its run like a conservatory for articles and best practices, or a reference to experienced players who are willing to answer questions. Otherwise, playing the game is still probably the best way to figure things out.

Glad you enjoyed my words Ian. I received my Doctorate in Analysis/Therapy (or Analrapism as we call it in the biz) from M.I.T.

The university from russia which he linked to actually made more sense than any weve had here before. Keep it short and gameify it. Dont know if thats the route theyre taking but the groundwork laid out seems solid.

Liked the podcast. I expect Irish to be added to tne list of university subjects shortly;]

Before you bring me up in an article, you should ask its polite. Next the university is more of a tutorial, it helps new members understand parts of the games better,politics/military/business. It is always nice to have a teacher when joining a game to learn. Who said anything about real life? Its to help players in the game. A tutorial basically, I have them talk to people like The Pysch0 who explain the best way to get into politics.

This is a sad article
I only try to help

IamGawain Day 1,829, 10:20

I also say I feel sorry for you, so selfish and not wanting to help other players because its a "FATAL ERROR".


IamGawain Day 1,829, 17:49

Why a link to tutorials?

IamGawain Day 1,829, 17:50

When I say tutorials mine are better cause I have experienced members helping them be the best from military politics or business.

and a very experienced player made those tutorials, or did you not even view them? Kudos for initiative and effort, but if you really want to fix something that isn't broken, be my guest.

IamGawain Day 1,829, 18:57

I did view them however those are basic tutorials, I do advanced and teach tricks on certain things to win or make money, and help a fellow man. Did you even view anything about my university? Guess not

-Gawain 🙂

In life there is nothing but havoc wreaking in the world. You say you come on here to "escape life's bullshit", but then begin creating havoc on here by criticising the work of others, I think you are blind-sighting yourself.

I do however agree with your thought of invading somewhere, We bent Canada head over heals juring the practice session, we can do it again
