Re: BtB2018 Space - The builders and winners revealed!

Congratulations to Mr XY, matrix54 and AgentXP, which were my top 3 levels as well! And congrats to all other builders and guessers too. :) I had a pretty good feeling about 6 of the 8 levels and was only slightly unsure about Kitkat's and Die Basis's levels, but in the end it "finally" worked fine....

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

As said, it's always two sides, and the reviewer is one of them as well. Keeping the above in mind it might at least be easier to live with it in case the problems can't be solved by communication.

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

Of course, but keep in mind discouraging has two sides. If someone gets discouraged by a review, then why simply don't care about those scores? Get the things you can learn out of the marks (in case there are some present) and ignore the rest? It's not that those grades mean the world. discourages e...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

I didn't like the Greece BtB much but I don't recall Talos' game. Or any other for that matter. Only bits of the BtB. But I find it hard to have one of Talos' levels actually deserving a 3 in gameplay... So, Magnus is a harsh critic. So, it may have been about finding keys and so forth - but it doe...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

And from your posts I also see that the language is a huge barrier, because you still didn't get the following: I never told you are not allowed to ask, but I think it won't happen. I also think that the language barrier is creating much of the problems (no offense). So in short sentences: His score...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

Don't misunderstand me, you are of course free to ask to remove this level, but I'm pretty sure that it won't happen and I wanted to give you another perspective on this review. If you don't want to see that, well then it's your problem. Your words also convey this attitude of many builders out ther...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

Why shouldn't reviews be ironic? There's no rule written saying so. Also, it would be a very hard job for Michael to reject all non-clear and non-precise reviews... in this case, I even think that he made some points that explained his marks, and even if it would be entirely unprecise, there would b...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

You might think about Magnus' reviews how you like and I think every point that can be made about them has already been made, but IMO Magnus didn't actually compare your level to Fallout. He mentioned it in his review, but he never put any direct comparison - in the first sentence it's just a story ...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

I've gone a bit too far, yes, sorry. To me, the whole discussion (not about the scoring system, mind you) is quite pointless, I just didn''t see why Antonio picked up on it at all and was provoked over some things I found "untrue". Most likely I overinterpreted some of his words, though.

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

I am not kidding. In that post, he basically blamed Miya on releasing a review without having finished the level. And even if there was a hidden critisism of the shortness, this post is saying the direct opposite: Miya’s short review is also succinct to the point and does not need embellishment or l...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

b) he actually did it: http://forum.trle.net/viewtopic.php?p=760961#p760961 Had nothing to do with shortness. And if it was meant to, he actually contradicted himself with the later post. Anyhow, telling players of my game are masochistic is not a polite argument, right? or finishing with "life is ...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

Dark Sheep said "This project it's perfect, in every detail” --- nothing more need be said even though it is one sentence. I haven't played HS1/2 yet at all, so mind you I can't say anything about that. In the quote above (and the others as well), it's obvious that the only thing you required from ...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

a) It's not only what you say, but how you say it. You should care of your words.
b) Isn't it interesting that there are 3 even shorter reviews for this level? I'm missing your complaint about those.
