Who else read the about page? If I had never heard about EN or ES and just stumbled on to the site and read that page it would have hooked me by itself.

As far as the noob rush goes, I've been a fan of EN for quite a while.. I just tend to stay away from forums. However, some of the recent threads on the EN forum have intrigued me, so I began posting.. simple enough.

I can't help but think that I saw that pic in Exploitation Now somewhere - it's definitely not new, I know that, just in a different place. Nice coloring job, btw.

Yes, it was around strip no. 200-220, I think . . .

Course, I haven't read through it in months, so I wouldn't have a clue.

A bit off topic, but isn't the n00b rush a tactic in RTS games?

Yeah, I used to play Age of Empires 2 a lot in the past, and one of the things that annoyed me when I started out was that by looking at the total score of everyone, enemies could infer who the n00b's were, and then all attack him at once to eliminate him from the game. But then I got better and got to do some n00b stomping of my own. :grin:

In starcraft, a n00b rush in usually the 6-pool zergling rush, or photon cannon rush. I used to die to them when I was a newbie, but now I laugh at it...

In C&C, a n00b rush plan was thus:

build 3 barracks
produce infantry out of it nonstop
run over to other person's base and kick some ass

In Myth II, a n00b rush was just taking everything you have (including wights) in one big glob and charging the center.

The general strat is to concentrate on producing 1st tier units and a little bit of defense, and good scouting. n00b rushes can be shut down if you catch them early.

Ask and ye shall recieve...

As to Zergling Rushes (aka n00b rushes) best way to counter is to build defensively and draw them away from the main base. i.e. make them feel warm and welcomed... then catch them in the cross fire.

Hmph... there's something off about getting lesbian themed giftart for a comic that hasn't even started yet... Threw together the links page, and added another image to the gallery section.


I really feel honored. Twinkly eyes*

I mean, well, I'm not really sure if I should go and hug Poe or if I should hide because some christian folk who are regulars to my site and know my in RL would come and burn me at the stake for heresey.

egads i drew lesbians! LESBIANS!!! I'm confused...

Anyhoo, can't wait to see ES soon. Hee heee, at least in the near future there would be good subjects for lemon, lime and yaoi doujinshis. Jon looks like Obi Wan Kenobi when he was in his teens. It's kinda fun playing with the action figure with He-man as they go to the market and sleep together.

oh dear me, did I say that out loud? Tee hee hee.

Okay, I'm an idiot. What do "lemon" and "lime" mean in this context?

A lemon is an erotic fanfiction. I'm not sure what "lime" means; it was probably just thrown in to sound good.

Limes are basically lemons that don't really go all the way, aka soft-core (aka shitty) porn.

Is that so? I'm confused now. I'm hosting a fanfiction archive for a fansite and the labels don't seem to do those fics justice.

I really wonder if one night of lust really does develop into love or it only happens in fantasies... I haven't had enough sleep so I'm probably ranting...

Anyway, I'm gonna go take pictures of obi wan kenobi action figure and he-man yaoi when I finally get home! yay!
