Oh, nice to see you still around Quel.
This is the new group chat, only recruit people by using the username notification system so mods don't nuke us again. Good to have you back man
Nice to see you bro
Let's hope we can get everyone together before then
Really? How long has it got?
Yeah I think that's it. I hope they all still have the app installed.
Oh yeah, but I don't remember his username. I'll try though.
That's almost the last of us.
There's also another guy, and Bloodraven. But I can't remember their usernames. We need to keep the mods and Neithan out of here, so probably only mention the thread by using the username notification system or whatever
@Bobert5757 Not gonna forget you bro dw
I'm on school holidays a few weeks earlier, so this might be a bad time. But tomorrow morning maybe, btw it's nice to see you again man.
Emperor, I just got an idea. Respond to this so I get a notification, then I can click on the notification link and send notifications to all the people from the old thread by mentioning their usernames. This thead has only 3 comments, and therefore a maximum of 3 bookmarks that will alert 3 people if we comment (2 of which are people from the old Female Astartes thread). This is our chance!
Nah, they're basically like the "robots" in a car factory: Incapable of thinking beyond their specific programming, lack of complicated thought, and no sentience at all. Basically the best AI we have now would still fit into this category, since it isn't sentient - just a bunch of electronic signals.
Okay you win😂
Gaz I'm kinda interested now, what else were you going to mention?
I'm still kinda here if you remember me
Through I have no idea about the cost of weapons to the Imperium (I assume it's pretty cheap considering the rapid overturn of active soldiers) it wouldn't be very efficient to give heavy weapons to your average Guardsman as they wouldn't be likely to survive extensive lengths of time anyway. Since most forms of offense that Imperium experiences are from high-tech or violent weapons, it is unlikely any weapons could be recovered from among the large fatalities experienced on any battle.
@Tau [should be il]egal
I agree with the idea that a ranged weapon would be very useful, I think a crossbow would actually be more beneficial then a bow in this situation though. If you are actually in visual proximity of the Ork, then you don't want to be wasting time pulling back a bow.
A barbed spear would also work wonders in this situation, it would be difficult to remove - slowing down the Ork massively. Humans are also very good at propelling spears, some fossils have revealed that we penetrated the bones of mammoths with only manual throwing.
Nice job man
