Just curious if anyone likes tennis on these boards, and if yes, is anyone a "fan"? 'Cause right now it's the US Open going in full swing with some interetsing results.

On the women's side, sadly, Russian seeds fell all over the place leaving only Zvonareva (recent Wimbledon runner-up) standing. I don't really think she has that extra class to go against Clijsters or Williams, but who knows? The Dane is riding strong and I, along with many others, feel that it will be difficult to stop her (Cibulkova and , potentially, Zvonareva in the way of the final - much, much easier deal than mauling through Clijsters/Stosur and Sciavone/Williams combination (c'mon, seeds 2,3,5,6 on one side, and Dane as seed 1 versus unseed Slovak followed by seed 7 or seed 31!).

Youzhniy surprises (pleasantly) in the men's side, taking the mantle of Russian hopes whilst Davydenko (our perennial top 5-er) is struggling back with a wrist injury. Swiss Wawrinka just accounted for the last American on the man's side of the draw. Quite impressive really that Switzerland has 2 players in the last 16, whilst USA has none. Spain is still riding high and well, though Robredo is out. Nadal is still going strong. Monfils ensures a frenchman is in serious contention for the first time in 10 years. Nice to see top 3 seeds doing well. I wonder how Fed will fare against Sod- hopefully will make up for the loss at Roland Garros. Same with Novak- I'd like to see Fed and him clash in the semis for the 3rd straight year (though I would've much preferred to see a Novak-Nadal battle in the semis). Hoping there Youzhniy, being 12th seed, can make it past Wawrinka (25th seed), especially as he just had to play a tough 4 setter against Murray followed by a 5 setter against battling Querry (admittedly, on the other hand the Russian player had 4 setters in the last 3 matches).
General Discussion / Changing user names
September 04, 2010, 06:18:29 PM
Right, folks, I see that recently several of you have changed your usernames. In order to avoid confusion and possible headache for those new and old when referncing people's ideas and referring to prior posts, can you kindly post in this thread what your previous username was and what your current one is (in case you change it more than once).

Though some are obvious, some are less obvious than others, and it's best to keep track in all instances.
For example, methinks "Tastidian" became "Pink Panther", but I may be mistaken. "namelesskitty" became "the holy namelesskitty", still counts- after all, there were some very similar usernames back in the day.

Thus, would the current "Duckling" like to start things off?
TSoG / Map requests!
September 03, 2010, 05:48:56 PM
Although back in the day I've submitted circa 200 maps made in the Map Editor, it's been a while since I've done so!
Thus, if you'd like to, why not make some "requests" for maps (say, things like "could you kindly make a map with defeat boss condition which features Spriggats and a Nymph, or is set in .... terrain" is what I have in mind). If I have the time and if I have the creativity, I might give it a shot.
What say you to this, folks?
TSoG Wish List / Formulated Orb Ideas
September 01, 2010, 02:07:07 PM
By popular demand, here is a formulated orb ideas thread. Although some of the orbs are uiqte guessable in their nature, rumeor has it that there will be circa 15, and below will be a list of the best ideas by members which, hopefully, will get into the game.
TSoG Wish List / Formulated Somnus Wishlist
August 31, 2010, 07:27:20 AM
As Somnus right now is being shaped up by Craig, methinks it's worth having a discussion about what we really would like to see added to it, before Craig finalises the city. We've had many interesting ideas, so let's see which ideas are the ones we want to see the most- let's talk about it here.
And then I'll add up the best/most wanted ideas to a list below.
General Discussion / What does Ertxiem stand for?
August 31, 2010, 07:08:21 AM
Well, we've been here and done that, as I'm sure most of you will remember. Now it's time to post some theories about Ertxiem's name origins! (I guess the same rules apply and he'll kindly let us know by page 10, unless we guess beforehand?)

Let's start things off quickly:

A quick search tells me that he's the owner of "ERT online", and this is his way to do some subliminal advertising. And in order not to get caught, as he's present on virtually all the major forums, he changes his username and adds on extra prefixes, roots,etc. Obviously, here he decided to go for "xiem"!
Oh, and he's Greek, I tell ye- you can clearly see that by the fact that the said website is written in Greek and has .gr at the end of it.

Mystery solved, thank you!
General Discussion / Locking Topics Spree
August 31, 2010, 07:01:27 AM
Folks, seems like quite a few topics get locked these days by users who start the threads in order to avoid going off-topic, but how about either leaving them be, or simply locking them up, without writing many posts about how the topic is locked? I just saw an 8-post thread with 4 (!) posts about how this topic is about to be locked, ready, locked. This does increase incredibly the post count for some users by quite a bit.
I think it's best to keep everything in one thread so people know exactly where to look and what to say ;)
Plus, it will clutter up the forums less.

Thus, if you'd like to see a topic locked, moved or merged, kindly post in here.
General Discussion / Topics to Lock, Move and Merge
August 31, 2010, 06:54:03 AM
Here is a thread where you can ask one of the moderators/administrators (Craig, Ert and I) to lock, move or merge topics if you feel there is a great necessity to do so. This way, we don't clutter up the forums with numerous posts about locking a topic, or moving a topic elsewhere, keeping all the topics looking nice and on-topic (and without folks feeling bad increasing substantially their post count by non-informative/constructive posts).

Thus, below kindly give the action you want us to take, the reason for it, and a link to the topic in question.

TSoG Wish List / MOVED: Random chest feature?
July 24, 2010, 03:23:16 PM
Branching off from this topic, the question (quite unexpectedly, at least for myself) arose is "how ot get rid of soul charges"?
Although they're used to revive teammates in-game, it seems that some folks don't like to use them or have too many of them for ethical, practical, financial or style reasons (see page 2 of the original thread)! Thus, what sort of solutions would you like to see for this issue, folks?

How about if Luca reaches, say, 50 or 100 soul charges, she can either disperse them in-battle for a poweful elemental attack (e.g. Soul Blast, covers the whole area, like Holy Blast, and deals 20 damage to all enemy units, and friendly units as well, if friendly fire is on) or disperse them at the HQ, but instead gain extra 10-20 PsP or health (the leftover energy released in letting souls dissipate from the material realm into another plane can be gathered by Luca)? What are your thoughts on this?
TSoG Walkthroughs / Treasure Chest Locations

I'll add it in proper at a later date, when more chest will be available. Meanwhile, kindly refer to this topic on locations of major chests in-game.
TSoG / Gelf and his pet Bird: namegiving!
July 03, 2010, 11:22:26 AM
Hi folks, this has been raised on the old forums once, and we went through a similar process some time ago when coming up with a name for the Tigs. Thus, here is a thread to suggest names for one of the pets that potential teammate Gelf will have: it's a bird, with relatively low hp, relatively low attack, but which has incredibly high speed and can be used to tip the balance in favour of the play when things are on the knife's edge.
Now, the Tig came from Craig playing around with the name that was generally agreed upon by the forum populace: Sterigma Sprout, Greater Sterigma, etc (initial name idea suggested by Ertxiem).
Thus, if one assumes that this is a real-world bird equivalent, what type of bird should it be (e.g. eagle, hawk, or latin equivalents?) and how can that name be Gelvified?

E.g. there is a Crowned Solitary Eagle, in latin Harpyhaliaetus coronatus. Why not have that as "Haet" or "Haaet" or "Cron" or "Nat"?
Thoughts, folks?

So, are any of you folks following the Football (Soccer, that is) World Cup in South Africa?
Who do you support? Any thoughts, ideas, comments, emotions?

Hah, I actually returned just in time to see off WD2, so here we come with World Domination 3, same rules apply!

Amusingly and fittingly USA will be the big donor these days!

"Ok, folks, time for the second edition of this game: you can find the rules in the first edition right here!

Now, to keep things interesting and to try to ensure that it's not as easy to identify with any given country ('cause you're from it, for instance), I'll try to list the not-so-obvious countries who'll rule the world, here we go: "

Ghana: 10
Albania: 10
Costa Rica: 10
Solomon Islands: 10
Nepal: 10
Chad: 10
Estonia: 10
Peru: 10
East Timor: 10
Turkmenistan: 10
Burkina-Faso: 10
Malta: 10
Tonga: 10
Quatar: 10
USA: 100

Behold the rising superpowrs of the world! Which one will rule them all? Post and find out!

Forum Games / World Domination Country-fact
March 29, 2010, 09:30:54 AM
Not sure how you'll all be interested in this, folks, but seeing as many of you probably don't know much about the countries listed in World Domination 2, how about we go for a "game" of trying to find some interesting facts about each of those countries?
Rules are simple: one fact for one country in one post.

So, let's start with something very general: Vanuatu is an archipelago situated not far from Fiji in the Pacific Ocean.
