The original "This Thread is Currently About" is back! Yes, it's Count to 100!

HOW TO PLAY

1. Count by ones from 1 to 100 in 100 consecutive posts according to the Core Rules.
2. Restart the count from 1 after:
a. a Moderator (or an Administrator) posts if users and Knights are counting..
b. a user or Knight or Warden posts if Moderators and Administrators are counting.
c. breaking a core rule, spamming, or cheating.
d. reaching 100.
3. Announce why you restart the count so other counters don't get confused.

CORE RULES

No mistakes. A count must start from 1 and increase by ones up to 100, save for exceptions noted.
No double-counting. No counter may count two consecutive numbers.
No back-to-back counting. No two counters may alternate for more than three consecutive numbers.
Okay: P1 P2 P1 P3
Not Okay: P1 P2 P1 P2
Okay: P1 P2 reset P1 P2
No editing. No counter may edit their post. If an edit tag shows on a count, the attempt is forfeit.

ADDiTiONAL RULES

No "spamming". Please don't post only the number and please don't post gibberish, either.
Multiple one- or two-word counts may also disqualify a count.
No "cheating". This shouldn't need to be said. Counting to 100 doesn't count if you cheat.
This is an exercise in teamwork, not rule bending.
No "spoiling". Don't mess with the count. Posts should start with the correct number.
Posts with no numbers should be ignored. See also: No non-counts.
Posts with intentional mistakes should be ignored.
No "spilping". If this is your first post in this thread, please post "I'm new and here to count to 100!"
No non-counts. No counter may post without a counting number or make a post without bolding that number if that counting number is not at the start of the post.

COMPLETE SET OF RULES
Please refer to the complete set of rules for additional information and examples of what is valid or invalid.
DiSCUSSiON THREAD
Please also check out the discussion thread for new gameplay or rule proposals or general discussion on the gameplay and rules of "Count to 100".

END GAME

Once you reach 100, you start this Sisyphean task all over again back at 1. Users should notify the Commissioner of the Count (HahiHa) that the count reached 100 and the Commissioner will review it to make sure there were no mistakes or cheating. If there were no mistakes or cheating, then the users who took part in the successful count to 100 will get a shiny new Quest!

37. OK this is really ticking me off. How can you be such a mule, you won't even read the rules. Guess I'll use the good old:

This is spoiling. Intentionally screwing up a count just to piss us off. Thus, we can still win the count, albeit, ash_usul will not be included and lack a sweet merit and insane quest. Eh? Eh? Eeeeh?

@PLGuy Yeah, the reasons were mostly strategic, but I'd just like to point out that it is an emulator. If I had a PC emulator on my Huawei, the game wouldn't run the same even if my phone had the same specs. This is because it is not optimised for it. Depending on the usage of processing power, it might completely screw up this weak PC, but if it were optimised, it could run at half the power.

Now, I sure as hell don't know what I'm talking about, but saying it's easy to port something just "cause emulators" is about as ignorant as my argument.

38. Where did you see that I call it easy?
I know how emulators work. How else would I be able to hack & slash D&D monstrosities wielding simultaneously two two-handed swords/axes (Dark Alliance 2's inimitable idea)? What I've meant is how much easier it is to emulate mobile games to PC, than to emulate console games to PC. Therefore, conversion should also be easier / requiring less than 4 years. The environment is quite similar, the same designing tools are adapted for both platforms.

Also: by the time this four years span passes, Ironhide will have released two new games. Their team is probably quite small, their games always polished. It could be that they didn't see it worth investing back then (the premiere of Windows 10), and decided with strategic/marketing gambit to release it now. For the time being, it looks as if it was worth it. Even the best studios might bankrupt after releasing amazing games at a bad time. Just look what have happened to Telltale (before finishing GoT season 2 😭).

39. Oh. Well, in that case, sorry for misconstructing your post. Even though no conversion should take 4+ years.

IMO, the best studio screw-up happened with pandemic games. If you don't know, they made "The Saboteur" (as well as the original SW Battlefront II) AKA Assassin's creed in nazi-occupied France. It might not have been perfect, but blowing up nazi artillery, blimps and other s*** while parkour-ing through nazi Paris and seeing random French people publicly assault nazi soldiers because you were an inspiration to them. It was fun as hell.
But, then, EA came. Add 2 and 2 together.
