Memorable Quotes (Part 94)

In a recent discussion on optimal decksize in VtES (on _angst_ stated:
"And yeah, I know I sound like a complete **** but seriously guys, recent studies have proven most people don't understand the fundamentals of this games, I'm seriously..."
To which Haze responded:
"I was curious if this were really true, so I conducted an informal survey. I asked several random people on the street some simple questions about the fundamentals of VTES. It turns out most people really don't understand basic concepts such as gaining stealth, or what the edge is used for. They had no grasp on the Influence phase and transfers. One guy tried to mug me, so I marked him down as understanding combat even though he had no clue that he's supposed to try to oust his prey.

So this confirms that, yes, most people in the world just don't know jack about VTES deckbuilding.

I'll visit it once a year and tell everybody "here lies a great man, his knowledge was not understood by his fellow players" or something similar ;)
