What book/s are you currently reading?
I recently finished The Zen and Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Next up comes A Theory of Monads, a lovely first edition from 1922 on Liebniz's theory of monadology. I think monads are but part of philosophy is knowing what's and why so you can know what's not .
Fooled by Randomness - Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Will give anyone a healthy scepticism for economists/investment bankers after reading, heartily recommended.
To address your second point, not very man games were trolled in the Gold Lobby, some people, like myself, got on alts and played so that people couldn't get easy reads on them (although thinking back that was pretty cheap and lame), but mostly didn't troll. However to reasure this, I encourage Lucid to make it so that ALTS CANNOT JOIN LOBBIES UNLESS THEY HAVE THE POINTS ON THAT ACCOUNT TO DO SO. 1 petition at a time though, I'm a rebel, but I'm not that bold.
Your third point, is implying that 90 minute waits was part of the whole quote. You quoting me wrong and that is downright wrong. Lobby waits lasted up to 90 minutes, and were well worth the wait to me and the countless others who have posted in this thread with approval of my petition. You don't have to wait, seriously this lobby doesn't even effect you since you don't play in it man. Also if you were to of read the part you quoted, you'd realize that in fact after the game, the same group would play 5-6 more games together. Someone left? No problem, someone else would take thier place, we often had 2 groups playing games at the same time. And if we were short one and really needed someone, we all have contacts to people in gold tier that we can call.
