Religion / Re: Jesus did not exist (link I found)
« on: January 27, 2012, 03:21:47 AM »
The statement that we can't prove it one way or the other is, at least IMHO, is ignorant. How can we possibly know that we can't until we've gone through all the various options. And if we can just choose to dismiss evidence and not believe it, then any discussion on any topic is pointless as well.

I'm not saying Jesus did or did not exist, or a similar statement, I'm simply saying that the discussion(not specifically this thread) is not useless or pointless. On the contrary, it is quite helpful for some people(like me).
Sure, I suppose discussion is helpful, but this is such a disputable subject in the world and "discussion" is usually just debating. It's always just two forces clashing against each other like morons.

The point is, no one can prove anything. You for example, cannot prove the validity of the website in question. You can base your claims on many things but that doesn't necessarily prove anything. You could say, that it's been researched by "researchers" who know what they are doing, but that's a very lousy point. Then you would just base your reasoning on someone's opinion. We can believe many things, yes, and many leaps of faith are necessary to acquire knowledge, but there is still NO FIRM PROOF.

What someone says on a website isn't proof. It's a opinion. It's disputable, it can be argued over and over again.
Even if the person says that a top level researcher has found this and this evidence, IT STILL stands as a claim of that person. Doesn't PROVE it. Who's to say that what he found is true? How the heck does this "researcher" guy suddenly know everything about everything that's happened?

You cannot prove such a thing like this. It's impossible. Just accept it. Things like gravity are easy to prove because we all feel and see it, but such things like God's existence or Jesus' existence, no way.

BTW - I'm a believer myself. I don't base my beliefs towards Jesus on sight and logic, instead I base it on my experiences. Mostly it's blind faith, you believe in something that you cannot really prove, but that's what faith is and that's the only way anyone is going to find God. I'm not here to try and convert you to Christianity, and am not trying to prove to you that God exists, but to me He does and always will.

If you forget your password, you are supposed to email Zanzarino at... well... whatever his Elements email address is. He will then email your password to the email account you entered on your ETG account
Yeah. That seems to be the only way. I really hope that Zanz would implement a automated system to retrieve passwords, though.

I think all these articles that are trying to prove or disprove any sort of God are complete waste of everyones time.

Everyone should just stop discussing religion, there is no way in hell anyone of us here can prove or disprove that Jesus existed. Whatever "so called" evidence we point out to eachother, whatever "known scholars" we point out to, we can just choose to dismiss it and not believe it. That's what you do if you don't agree with eachother, and it's complete, utter waste of time.

Seriously, guys. Better just leave it alone because these types of topics lead nowhere. What is this topic trying to achieve, even? It's just generating dispute.

To the people who are trying to prove God or Jesus doesn't exist, stop, you can't prove it.
To the people who are trying to prove God or Jesus exists, stop, you can't prove that either.

I've followed these types of topics before, many times, and the only thing everyone is doing in them is banging their heads against a wall.

Yeah...

Just a suggestion, but building on that, what if the ability replaced the target's ability with Burrow in addition to "hiding" it?  Would the be too OP?
Yeah, I think it would. For 1 :earth, 5HP such CC is pretty OP.

How would it prevent Lava Golem from growing?  Unless it replaces the ability, wouldn't creatures with Growth still be able to buff themselves?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but only one creature can be hidden per coral?
Well I'm not sure if the card works that way, but it would seem logical to me. If you burrow your enemy's creature, it cannot use abilities? Maybe the OP can tell his vision on this.

Well that's a valid point, and a good one for sure. Also realized that the hiding prevents creatures like Lava Golem from growing, which is neat.

Guess I'm just concerned of this card's utility versus it's cost in a deck, obviously the card is cheap but is it worth putting in the deck? I would definetly want to see the healing buffed just a little bit.

Of course I'm no expert, just throwing ideas around. :)

Aether / Re: Dimensional Shield | Phase Shield

This card is great but a real pain in the ass if you don't have any sort of permanent control in your hand.

Many newbie mono Aether decks fail because they trust too much on their shield. ::)

I thought of this too. When you create your account in the game, it gives you a option to enter your e-mail address in case you forget your password, but if you forget your password, there's no button to retrieve it. It seems that in the login screen, there is no mechanic to retrieve your password. :o

I found this to be very stupid and think it should be fixed.

Gains 1 HP per 15 combined
What does it means?
The OP may correct me on this, but I think it means that after the end of your turn, you will gain 1 HP for every 15 quanta from the water and earth elements. I assume the skill is passive and counts the quanta from both earth and water pools.

So basically, if you have 8 :earth and 7 :water, you would gain 1 HP after each turn.

But on to the card, here is my verdict: majorly underpowered and pretty useless. The card's healing ability is pretty weak and makes this card only usable in a mono :water deck, or duo :water / :earth deck. Rainbow decks don't have that much quanta laying around for the heal to be useful.

The Hide ability is pretty useful on your own creatures if you are suspecting danger, but pretty underpowered against your opponent. When you think about the currently available creature control cards, this card is pretty dumb. Most CC cards or creatures just kill your enemy, or stall your enemy for several turns, comparing to that this isn't very effective. :(

EDIT: And why would you even want to make enemy creatures hidden? That would mean you couldn't even target them while they are hidden.

That's my two cents.

The game told me that Zanzarino's head should explode just about now.

Got the entropy nymph and I'm just three days into the game. :)

Really looking forward to a card like this. This seems like it would fit nicely into the game, I personally don't think it's too overpowered either.
The card should definetly have little HP, not more than 4, since a deck full of these could seriously cause trouble for just about any opponent.

I'm also playing ideas in my head: combine this card with fractal and get a massive healing bonus each turn. :D Sound nice.

Welcome to the forums!

I also started playing Elements around 2008-2009 (Not really sure), when it still had the old UI, T50, no raffle wheel etc. :D The game was even more grindy back then.
