    Is it possible that the confederation could have won the kilrathi war after the Battle of Earth without the Temblor Bomb or Behemoth

    Actually, your English is pretty good! No worries there. I agree with this point, we have certainly seen the hate on both sides ratchet up more as the war drags on. More atrocities, bio-weapons, etc. If they surrendered? Certainly, I agree. Even in victory this is a struggle as we see in...

    Is it possible that the confederation could have won the kilrathi war after the Battle of Earth without the Temblor Bomb or Behemoth

    I'm not sure what you are trying to say here, so I may be misinterpreting it - if so, I will apologize in advance. I think it's important to make the distinction that the Kilrathi goals prior to the Battle of Earth are not really stated outright, but we can assume based on information of prior...

    Is it possible that the confederation could have won the kilrathi war after the Battle of Earth without the Temblor Bomb or Behemoth

    The way the story goes, we see what happens when the Behemoth and the Temblor Bomb fail, which is the Confederation being overrun and Earth being taken. The reality is that the war was at a stalemate for a long period, but the false armistice allowed the Kilrathi enough breathing room to get...

    Open questions thread from Ginger Lynn Allen

    How did you come to hear about the casting call for Wing Commander? What were you thinking when you tried out for the role?

    Q's anger management thread (chock-full of spoilers!)

    Well, I don't think I would say there is a wrong choice. I think Standoff does a really great job, I certainly found it entertaining and the story was compelling. I think there were a lot of things that tip the hat to the hard core fans, which is fun for all of us who have been playing WC...

    Q's anger management thread (chock-full of spoilers!)

    Yeah, I think the Behemoth thing is a double edged sword. On the one hand, if you don't say enough about it, the new players who didn't play WC3 (there are more than you probably think, sadly, as the game is nearing 20 years old now) would be totally lost and in the dark. Quarto, you are right...

    Some (Hopefully) Constructive Criticism [some spoilers]

    It was Mustanger, with the broken keyboard, in the Fred room. :) (That's a Clue spoof for those that don't get it) I have to take all responsibility for this, apology to all the ones who got snookered by the faulty command. Like I said in Quarto's thread, it is pretty embarrassing because it...

    No problem, I didn't take it personally :)

    Q's anger management thread (chock-full of spoilers!)

    I am sure I caused that by misdirecting the target. It's been 5 years since I scripted these missions, in fact Loki 1 and 2 were the only ones I was able to be involved in. I regret not being able to put more time in on the project, and I think it can't be said enough about what the core Saga...

    Q's anger management thread (chock-full of spoilers!)

    The asteroid thing was good on paper, but in my view admittedly didn't work out as hoped. The main issue I had in scripting the asteroids was that they simply didn't do enough damage. As I recall, even if an asteroid impacted the Hermes, it would only knock off 2 percent of hull anyway. If I...

    Cobra was a spy...

    We don't actually know where Cobra's sympathies lie in this scenario. Her true personality could be a broken one that will support a Kilrathi agenda. Her vitriolic personality is a perfect cover because she is the last one that would be expected to betray Confed.

    Cobra was a spy...

    That is interesting. I had always made an assumption that he had undergone the personality overlay at that point in time, and that the interrogation was part of creating his persona. Although, I suppose his ties to the other Kilrathi traitors should have tipped me off :)

    Cobra was a spy...

    I certainly do believe that the personality overlay was invented to make Hobbes defection seem less out of nowhere... if you simply played WC3 and had no knowledge of the novels or deleted scenes, do you really understand why Hobbes all the sudden turned traitor? The nice thing is that I...

    Cobra was a spy...

    I don't have the book in front of me, but this wouldn't explain the headache symptoms she mentions.

    Cobra was a spy...

    I don't think so. The frequency is an important piece. Had Hobbes been watching animal planet and heard "Heart of the Tiger" it wouldn't have made any difference to him. The frequency is required for his original personality to hear the message and awake. At the same time, the frequency...

    Cobra was a spy...

    Just to be clear, because I'm not sure I was after re-reading my first post, but what I was trying to say is that reason Cobra felt that the frequency was familiar was because she, like Hobbes, had been subjected to the personality overlay. However, while the frequency was there, the trigger...

    Cobra was a spy...

    Because she didn't KNOW she was a spy! She hadn't been activated yet.

    Cobra was a spy...

    So, after re-reading the WC3 Novel, I got to thinking that Cobra actually was a Kilrathi spy. Now, I believe she is supposed to be a red herring in the novel to keep the reader from zeroing in on Hobbes immediately, but the fact that she mentions a familiar feeling when Thrakhath triggers...

    Favorite Missions or Mission-sets (of course spoilers)

    I thought Caliban was pretty fun and well done. There are a lot and I am trying to remember them all... I like the mission where you encounter the asteroid base and the docked carrier, it was fun and challenging. Also, the mission where you face off against Stalker was entertaining as well...

    Q's anger management thread (chock-full of spoilers!)

    Kinda like WC3 in that respect, though! Are you flying on the highest difficulty? You may have to adjust your difficulty up a notch or two to get the challenge you want. As far as the story with Confed on the ropes and all, that really isn't Saga's story, that is WC3's story. You have to...
