This announcement is going to be a surprise for me. Im not going to read anything into it as I would just scare myself for no reason.

I KNEW IT!!! I KNEW IT!! Stuff it, haters! ::kidding::

I don't have time to read all the replies. I'll just wait for the announcement. All I can say is that I have a gut feeling that I'll be in the group of players who will be pleased with the change. That is all... :wink:


You forgot part of his reply to that question:

Quote:
(05/02 17:33:32) Greydragon: Thanakar , well using gametap helps gametap see that you are interesting in uru


Cyan may get the numbers either way but Gametap gets a better view of who is using GT for Uru when you go through the launcher.


So what? All I care about is if Cyan gets the numbers. If Gametap comes calling, Cyan can give the numbers to them. GD's responses show that this isn't the same priority that it was during the Beta.

Quote:
Last time I did try direct launching the game it did seem to recognize I had any avatars, I got a 'enter your name screen' and when I did i was told that name was already taken. So I'll just stick with using the client.


Well, clearly, you did it wrong. Sorry, but the standalone works wonderfully, just sign in using your GameTap username and password.

This brings up a side issue: Gametap isn't just giving Cyan the usernames and passwords of its entire userbase, so even when you use the standalone, you're still going in through Gametap.

So again, haters, go fly a kite. :lol:

I'd have to say can it with the attitude TNR... seriously.

I don't use the Gametap client myself for the reason that it's generally tacky and annoying, but regardless, the emotes you tack on to the end of your remarks doesn't do much to soften them.

I'm sure people don't appreciate being told to "go fly a kite" or "Stuff it haters" because they support URU through the gametap client. I don't care for it either and I'm not even lumped into that group of "haters". :roll:

Win gracefully.

Uh dude, you can't get the game to launch without using the correct gametap username and password so , no..I'm NOT doing it wrong. I'm using the exact same username and password I use to access the GT client. I also don't appreciate being lumped into your 'haters' category just because I am doing what Greydragon asked us all do to back in January. I guess that means you'll have to lump Greydragon in that haters category also, I'm sure he'd like to know you just told him to go fly a kite.

If I'm a hater for following a direct request from Cyan, then so be it. I'd rather be one of those haters than someone who deliberately thumbs their nose at others.

Wow. I had no idea people would get offended by the phrase "go fly a kite." C'mon!

I mean, if that isn't clear indication that this is not a serious topic, I don't know that is.

And the "haters" (another un-serious term) are the people who insisted that the only way Cyan could calculate the Uru population was if people used the GT client, not the people who can't get the standalone to work, or prefer the GT client.

And smilies are not meant to indicate sarcasm, they are meant to indicate mood. So when I use :lol: , it really means that I am laughing about this, because it is funny.

And when I use :roll: , it just means that I think your responses are silly... nothing more.

Oh, yeah, did you all miss the "::kidding::" in my first post?!?!? You seriously think I am copping an attitude???

C'mon, what's with everyone taking everything so seriously??

Could someone please update the title to this topic so that it no longer says "this evening" while really referring to May 3?
