    Americans are a downgrade, cursed with the ‘Miron Debuff’ which lowers their intelligent significantly. They also suffer the ‘stunted’ debuff which makes them shorter and have smaller penis. Americans third debuff is also their strengh the ‘Lack of Ethical Integrity’ debuff, which allows them to go around killing innocent people and stealing resources. Nobody likes americans.

    6:49 One would think... but on the bright side, war often pushes technology to new lengths that benefits everyone (The first metal boats were made in the american civil war. The first radar system was used by the British in WW2 on their ships, leading to GPS. The first computer was also made in WW2 by the British to help crack the German code. Planes, although not created with war in mind, were used, tested, and later upgraded through war. Due to war, it allowed USA to escape its great depression. Due to both WW1 and WW2, women rights and anti-segregation movements also skyrocketed showing that everyone can do the same as a white man (A very strange concept back in the day). The atomic bombs, although a terrible weapon, also opened the doors to nuclear power plants, a very effective power source that (In my opinion) should become the primary source of power, either that or (Again, my opinion) cover large stretches of land that are currently not being used in renewable energy systems such as solar.) So... you can't deny the benefits of in fighting.

    Tbh. the pretty much god tier OP of humans is slowly turning against itself; everyone wants to play a humanclass and thus the class is so freaking large that it's effectively suffocating all other playable classes out of the game. It wouldn't be such a problem if humanclass wasn't build to rely alot to the other classes, directly or indirectly. I mean, we'd still get exp. from internal PvP but other resources might start being less available.

Maybe then all the evolution deniers will finally understand we aren't special and begin putting away their imaginary friends. If the imaginary friends debuff is removed from the game, we'll see an increase in player co-OP instead of rampant pvp

    I feel there is something missing, the recent evidence of a unnoticed strategy of some human players of mixing their gene pool with other human variants builds during their servers migration, including neanderthals and sapiens hybrids. What is not totally know is if that strategy was the responsible for the lack of other human builds in the current version, or if the devs simply took them out during different patchs.

  • StormSkeggi

    You're reading the wrong patch notes dude. Those are from an alternative server called *"Wakanda"* that's spammed on the original server's game-chat by gold-sellers and their bots. No way the *"Sapiens" from Africa (??), of all regions* (hello mana D deficiency?), could have successfully grief'd the *Neantherpals*. The one who did it was a hardcore faction-guild from the eastern European steppe - your followers might recognize the player *"Cro-Magnon*".* Dude's adaptation was so tight that his +30kSunCyclesOld build is practically copy-pasted in Europe to this day (except for 4% Neanderthal stats, mostly for cosmetics). Also, There's various data-mining indicating that *the Humans may not have been implemented from Africa altogether.* Here's one: Thing is, this *legendary Cart-riding Ship-sailing Expansion-Warring Cro-Magnomerthal of a faction* dominated the meta so hard that they grew tired and, because most currently active players are either feeling pity or put off by the other factions' item-begging and hate-spamming, they're mass-quitting the game. Most don't even defend their territories anymore and the economy is already rekt by the gold-sellers I talked about. Some say the decay was schemed. Why did they let it happen? Many agree the guild-leaders were prevented from making new characters and a lot of the faction today is just *newbie casuals* who joined the easy-button winning side. They don't care about how much work was put into it so they ignore (or throw) the factions meta and only grind solo for cash items. Then *act surprised when they're ganked around the map.* The rest of the loyal members are trying to rally the newcomers and hoping that the former players weren't really banned but actually employed by the Devs themselves.

    Something you missed about the superiority of the Neanderthal build and their competition, is mentioning the first true anatomically modern human in Europe, known loosely as "Cromagnons" (Early European modern humans.) One thing about the "larger" brain of the Neanderthal, is that technically speaking, certain parts of their brain were smaller than modern humans, mainly the parietal and frontal lobes. Cromagnon man actually had a larger brain than Neanderthal, and was also physically powerful and robust compared to contemporary humans. This is the 'human type' that the Neanderthals could not compete with. A combination of super-intelligence and super strength, which are traits that modern-day humans have mostly lost over the last 30,000 years or so. It had little to do with homo-sapien types who stayed in Africa, as the Neanderthal species was of course largely in Europe.

    Africa server is toxic AF anyway, and its playerbase just grinds the low EXP in starter zones. Some may play around with the Society ability, but never actually understand it. Players from the Europe server even transferred over to show just how broken the Society buffs make your other abilities, but once they transferred back, the server went right back to treating popping Society as a misclick.

    All these people saying PVP is such a big weakness. Until the unlocking of gunpowder tech PVP was incredibly fun. Some of us spent our whole lives learning it & in the England faction, practicing with a bow was mandatory. The main deficit was the game - overs & losing territory to other factions. The PVP route also offset the lack of intellect boosting items like books by providing an accessable & popular play style.

    Surprised the Fire Meta wasn't covered in this. It was more of a game-changer than any spear or projectile that humans ever invented; not only did it keep people warm during winter and allow humans to buff the xp from their loot through cooking, it also warded off nocturnal predators and created smoke that gave a buff against insect parasites. All points that humans have specced into their brains are a direct result of unlocking deeper levels of REM sleep, which was made safe due to the Fire Meta.

    Well, the fire wasn't a meta, it was a tech tree unlock, and a very early one at that: but you're right, it was key. The fire tech has been mentioned in some of the other videos, its one of the three bases unlocks that combines to open up the advanced tech trees and as far as we know, only humans have ever gotten all three base techs unlocked at the same time. The other thing about this triple lock access to the higher tech tiers is that only a special set of abilities would make it possible to do in the first place: you need an Intelligence of 90% or higher to unlock the tool use skill at all, and then grasping appendages and a minimum size of about a meter to unlock the Fire-Tending skill under the 'Fire' Tech. You also have to have a language trait to unlock the Teaching skill under child rearing, which while not actually part of the tech lock itself, is basically required to make any progress in the higher tech trees. Then to capitalize on all of that your tribe needs to have spent some of your evolution points on increasing your lifespans to the point that you can really gain a decent amount of 'Wisdom' over a single playthrough, some of which can be passed down to new characters with "Teaching" allowing you to build up towards points of Culture, Gnosis, and/or Science as time goes on. Humans made a point to push Int as high as they could on a species and individual basis for max Wisdom gain per playthrough at the beginning, because those early Techs are super-Expensive and worse, typically are bought solely with one knowledge resource, so you have to spend down thousands of points of say, Gnosis, to master "Animism", whereas "Monotheism" while it takes just as many points to total, you have more people working toward it by then and more importantly, they are fairly evenly split between Culture and Gnosis, and then a little Science is thrown in too, so it's a lot easier. Also, there are the "Teaching Abuse" techs like Alphabet/Syllabary/Idiographs, Book Binding, Printing Press, and Gramophone, then later the Internet and other computer system teaching abuse technologies. But back to that Fire/Tools/Agriculture lock. Lots of species unlock a single tech slot, as you can open one base tech per 20% or fraction thereof of Int you have, but almost none bother to use their evolution points to really spec into techs as the humans did. Sure we have some birds that have taken the Fire tech, and a number of ants that grasped Agriculture in one form or another, just about all the primates went for tool use, and numerous other birds took on child rearing to the point they have languages and teaching skills, but only humans said: "We want all of that, please and thank you!" In fact, humans didn't originally have the full lock for the advanced techs trees, they only picked up the Agriculture Tech AFTER they had been working with Tools and Fire for quite a while. Of course, once they had all three everything went to hell almost right away, because they had enough Wisdom saved to buy Copper Working basically right off the bat, but that's a story for another time...
