5 factions baby, sure Wehr and US from CoH1 on their own are amazing, but they're not on their own, the're trapped in a car with their retarded children PE and Brits.
No one faction in CoH2 is as good as Wehr or US from CoH1, but all 5 are decent. CoH1 has two amazing factions, one kinda ok faction (PE), and one terrible faction (brits).
Agreed. Well said.
Great video! I liked it! One thing I wondered, why give CoH2 more points for faction design, when the vanilla factions of CoH are far more complete than CoH2's vanilla factions that needed dlc to have some basic functions such as tank traps?
If by now we still need replays to tell what the major imbalances are, we are in a world of hurt.
Seriously, can we remove all recent community maps and start again.
They are either too big, too small, are CQ favoured, have sightblockers in front of points or have pathing issues due to an over abundance of clutter.
I am of course referring to Halbe, bryansk, westwall and caen..
What is wrong with Caen
Guess I fit into the yellow category GabeN
Ah ok, I see, I'm not too familiair with the Myer-Brigs one, so I'll take your word for it
I agree that the Nolan system might have SOME merit in a narrow corporate setting, but it's extremely archetypical imo, and does not really hold up outside of it, hence I don't think it is of much use here.
I'm a bit rusty in this department, but (if you are interested, or maybe already familiar with) you should look up the Big Five, which is based on imperical evidence (though also subject to critique).
Though it's been argued that it only holds up within the boundries of relatively easily recognizeable personality traits.
Correct me if I'm wrong though.
I came across this stuff at some point during philosophy class, which has been quite a while ago.
What's your major if I may ask?
The personalysis is based on quantum physics and corresponding mathematics. The big five is indeed a very good one! Although it is indeed simplistic in the nature of its depths! But for personal use it is one of the best I feal! However, the reason corporations use personalysis is because it shows how people respond to certain corporate environments when under stress, pleasure of leisure (very managable situations). The funny thing is, people respond the same outside of coporations to the same sort of situations. So it is a good way of knowing yourself and others and shows you how to communicate with others in a way that gets the most out of them and their capabilities.
It also shows you how to trigger someone. One of the interesting things for example, is the red profile. A lot of athletes are reds and their need for recognition, being the best and having money and fame are what drives them. Reds are also known for becoming physical when under stressful sitautions. That is why a lot of top athletes become wife beaters lol.
My major is Sport psychology. You would be amazed at how in depth you can analize the human mind when it tries to be the best. For example, a lot of athletes have admitted that they would take a drug that would end their lives within 5 years, but let them win all the trophies they wanted. What ever deceives men, be it ambitions or convictions, seems to produce a magical enchantment.
There are some interesting forum posts about people actually using personalysis to avoid jobs and spouses that would not align with their color profile and thus their personality. They avoid conflict this way. However, how trusthworthy these sources are, is debatable.
Yea , corporations, hardly any psychologist uses this stuff It's a gross simplification, related to the Myers-Brigs (couldve spelled that wrong) types. I'm not trying to insult you or anything, just saying.
That one was flawed and this version improved upon it. I have learned about both and more in my minor Psychology
While I appreciate your sentiment, "make the forums great again", I'd urge you to use the pseudo-science for your next university research paper.
There is no practical use to be found for it here, since people are not going to go around and look at color schematics while arguing on the internet.
Pseudo science lol? Big corporations use this test to determine if candidates fit their jobs lol. But oh well, So be it.
Having spend quite some time on these forums, it seems to me that a lot of people are trying their best to present their points of view, but end up getting attacked for them by other people and their points of view, which are ironically, most of the time roughly the same, but versed differently.
I introduce: Know thyself and know them all! We can achieve mutual understanding by the use of the famed quantum physics personalysis personality test by James Nolan. Instead of the test, we simply use their color grade personality groups. Most people have some traits of all color groups, but there are usually two dominant colors per person. Most of the time the combinations are: Red-Blue, Red-Green, Green-Yellow or Blue-Green. You can change the directions of the combinations based on the true dominant characteristics.
These are people who need security most of all. While most people have a need for control, greenies are need a tremendous amount of it. They require more predicatability, consistency and structure than other people. They tend to be detail oriented and enjoy such work. They like to do research. Under stress, greens can become stubborn. They have a LONG memory for negatives and can bear grudges "forever". They can become suspicious and nit picking. They may nag. They can be very negative under extreme stress. They tend to "write people off" after they have been disappointed with them. Once written off, theres no going back.
They especially follow rules completely and demand the same of others. They take a long time to think things through after which they become committed to a course of action, sometimes unwilling to change with the circumstances. They are sometimes known to sabotage things. They tend to stall. Beauracratic. Another stress reaction is to build a wall around themselves. Not communicating. They hate not being able to trust. This is something that is hard to come by from a greenie and once lost is not reclaimed. They experience a strong desire to get even for everything and can wait a long time for the satisfaction of doing so. They are tactical and methodical. They are loyal. Another stress reaction is to lose ALL feeling for people who views differ from theirs.
Reds are aggressive, bottom line oriented, focussed individuals who need respect most of all. They like power. They like action, and quick results. Under stress they become brutal. They enjoy positions of leadership. They need tangible rewards and seek constant accomplishment. Red is plentiful in Western countries.
Yellows are enthusiastic people oriented folk. They enjoy being around others and sometimes this leads to an emphasis on quantity rather than quality of interaction. They can be socially astute and cavalier. They enjoy flexibility.
They are passionate. They can be unpredicatble under stress, but they do try to maintain a good image as they especially hate disapproval from people they respect. They need recognition fron others. A lot of hollywood types are yellow.
Blue people need personal freedom. They are individuals. Sensitive, honest, sincere, caring, empathetic, idealistic and creative. People of ideas. Constantly in sensitive thought. They hate losing caring relationships. They hate misunderstandings. They hate a breakdown in communication. They hate uncertainty (although they are not insane about this as are greenies). They like to plan. They like to be courteous. They like to give reasons for things (such as decisions they make affecting others).
They like to think of themselves as special. They need lotsa TLC. Under stress they at first withraw. They then become depressed. This can happen for such reasons as feeling misunderstood, losing a caring relationship, or having less personal freedom in a situation such as work. When they are depressed, they need reassurance to bring them out of it. They might call a friend, talk about the weather even, but just feeling cared for gives them the reassurance to "come out of stress" and stop feeling depressed. They are very intuitive. The British have the most beautiful blue.
Although much of British functioning is green.
The next time you come across someone's post and your fingers are tingling to take out that keyboard of yours and enter the battlefield of ignorance and dispair, read through the specific person's post once more and determine what color group they are. Then approach them wisely to avoid missunderstanding.
I for example, am green-red where the green is very dominant and the red only shows some characteristics. I also have some characterics of blue in there.
For anyone that has seen me on this forum, they know that the following lines from the Green description fits me to the letter: "They have a LONG memory for negatives and can bear grudges "forever". They can become suspicious and nit picking. They may nag. They can be very negative under extreme stress. They tend to "write people off" after they have been disappointed with them. Once written off, theres no going back."
No go out there and make this forum a more pleasant place!
