So, why AW(BW)?

Postby BullGooseAnon » Tue May 28, 2013 3:57 pm

I've been sitting around today on my porch drinking blue-moons, and pondering the serious questions of life. And one that crossed my mind is why does anyone in their right mind play this game?

There's literally no social benefits:
I'm in the military where a lot of people live close together, and come together to play games like COD, starcraft, and other jerk off games - hell even chess lets me play with other people. I find that when I play this I'm sitting in a very dark, cold, lonely room drinking blue-moons and listening to death-metal...

AW(BW) will not help with the "getting laid dilemma" that a lot of you have., and the community is rather s*** here tbh.

No economic, or scholarly benefits:
Other than gipface I've heard of no one making money playing this game, and that was just extra copies of the game he had to re-sell. There's no tournaments local or international that one can compete other than the random crappy ones on here that lasts for multiple years with no profit.

Being part of a chess club, or sporting team looks good when applying for college.

The scholarly benefits are also rather dubious. Unlike chess there's no extensive literary knowledge to learn - all the strategy and tactics round here are rudimentary, and hardly instructive for one who desires a scholarly approach. There's also literally no incentive to increase AW(BW) literary knowledge, and only a few nerds who visit this would glance over it.

The game itself isn't some glamourous "fun" action game either - it's game that requires rigorous dedication on the high levels where the only fun seems to be domination of another blood thirsty opponent.

Yet, I've been playing AW for over 10 years, and AWBW since 08 and I keep coming back - perhaps we're all masochists, and sadists here getting off on suffering?

Thoughts?

Another point - AW(BW) is inherently manly, a serious game of mathematics at it's heart. Yet it attracts the least denominator. I attribute that to the pretty colors, and the fact that one can just move the units around and feel like they're in control of something in their lives...

... like a kid with his toy little colorful plastic train. The hollowness of the train is like the kids kids mind - ready for collapse.

This is what urbandictionary has to say about "dork":
"Dork:
If a girl calls a guy dork she thinks your cute. If a guy calls another guy a dork he thinks your a loser."

Hmm doesn't say anything about what it means if a gay guy call you a dork. o.O
