Release id #207806 : Soulless 2 - The Armour of Gods +2D

Submitted by iAN CooG [PM] on 4 September 2021
Yeah, sorry for commenting on the game instead of the release.
I also think it's a pity having a 1 side only for the intro&dox. Rest of the rel seems ok.
Regarding the race for fast rels for points, you have to go back to the 90's, it's not something new.

I know… but back then the cracks were weighted more towards quality, too… at least in some of the charts.

but GG also compared amount of trainers, overall release quality, etc

there was still a huge focus on shortest version, which produced a ton of shit releases

At the end of the day, the points are only given for the 1st to the post. The quality of the release and added features are not given any weight if you are 2nd. We could have made a mega trained jewel release on EasyFlash but there is nothing earned for this. Admittedly the majority of the ExCeSs team were at work or whatever, so the most time we could offer was what we delivered. I tip my hat to Sailor who still invested time and energy in the IFFL version.

At the end of the day Sailor is the one who gets some respect. The others get... points. It seems to me that only the first of these options seem like it has substance. In comparison, to chase points sounds like a game for kids. At least in these days. Somehow those points make me think of the Emperor's New Clothes.

Maybe we will be seeing a ranking list on respect next in vandalism ?

Oh WOW! Speed is a matter suddenly again after all these 1984 releases the high quality crackers made fame, points and quality with during the last YEARS?
Stunned, you see me!
Might be the alcohol.

Knight Rider: Just flip them charts and you've got the stats for active groups that wank least about stats

edit: actually I laughed a lot, when we appeared with negative score once or twice in such lists, because we dared to release only jewel stuff (cracks of old games)

Maybe you noticed, we did actually make a jewel release ? Just decided to make it available to all the people who bought it and not upload to the BBSes...



Support the DEVs, not supporting the scene.

oh right, it _IS_ no firstie, skipped my mind as game is still rather new. so the whole speed debate seems offtopic here.

anyway/BTT: ori 1 side resulting in crack 2 sides should be avoided, I don't think anyone seriously will disagree
