Xuvenia says, 'whereas i get a dazing elbow maybe um every 5 fights'
Xuvenia peers at Sandra, looking her up and down.
Huma says, 'just because something is insanely effective is somewhat a problem sometimes =P'
Blackmojo says, 'elbow is the biggest joke'
Xuvenia shrugs helplessly.
Huma says, 'just ebcause something is massively overpowered and works in your benefit doesnt mean its working correctly =P'
Hacred says to Xuvenia, 'its stat based, that could be your problem.'
Xuvenia says, 'what about blindside, how often should that daze'
Sandra says, 'Elbow is pretty nice in pk if you're determined'
Xuvenia says to Hacred, 'Which stats?'
Sandra says, 'not sure about blindeside'

Hacred says, '15 in a sack sucks :P'
Hacred mutters something about a large sack.
Sandra says, 'heh no'
Xuvenia says, 'speaking of ammo, how about revising the weights!'
Xuvenia peers around intently.
Huma chuckles politely.
Lew says, 'at the moment, i can only hold onto 10 boxes of .38 ammo'
Sandra says, '30 clips at 9 bullets each? You're on crack ;)'
Lew raises his hand.
Hacred says to Sandra, '30 clips lasts me about 20 minutes.'
Hacred says, 'then i have to wait for stranger which is only open 6 mud hours'
Sandra says, 'there are items to hold ammo. But not 30'
Lew raises his hand.
Huma nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'we good'
Huma says, 'if you cant convince Sandra'
Huma says, 'I can't help =P'
Huma says, 'go ahead Lew'
Hacred sighs loudly.
Lew says, 'okay, why is it that boxes of .38 ammo weigh more than boxes of .45 ammo?'
Hacred says, 'more rounds?'
Lew says, 'negative'
Huma says, 'careless disregard for the rules?'
Lew says, '25 rounds in each'
Hacred laughs.
Hacred nods his agreement with Huma.
Huma smiles happily.
Lew shrugs helplessly.
Sandra says, 'sec'
Hacred says, 'sure there not .38 magnum?'
Huma says, 'unbeknownst to you the .38 rounds are kept in an anvil'
Huma says, 'while the .45 rounds are kept in a cloud'
Lew says, 'id like to keep it that way, actualy, since my final eq set has nickel .45's in it'
Hacred smirks at Huma.
Huma says, 'actually its because theres no rules governing ammo weight =P'
Xuvenia peers around intently.
Huma says, 'so builders wing it probably'
Xuvenia says, 'fix that :P'
Hacred says, 'ammo should be weightless'
Hacred nods to himself.
Huma says, 'send letters to the area maintainer!'
Hacred nods his agreement with Huma.
Sandra says, 'nah it's because somebody cut/pasted from the buckshot :)'
Sandra says, 'fixed'
Xuvenia says, 'yeah, 25 bullets aren't that heavy'
Lew says, 'well, i had the sheriff of san frans .45 revolver'

Huma says, 'go ahead Bmojo'
Blackmojo says, 'with 2 gun do they have to be the same 2 guns ?'
Sandra says, 'nope'
Hacred says, 'nope'
Blackmojo nods solemnly.
Lew says, 'its not fixed...'
Sandra says, 'two pistols, that's all'
Huma says, 'it will be fixed in the next patch'
Hacred says, 'we need sawed off shotguns to twogun with'
Lew says, 'i still have the same amount of weight carried as before'
Huma says, 'most fixes we do dont immediately go live'
Lew says, 'oh'
Huma says, 'specifically changes to area stuff and code stuff'
Huma says, 'changes to help files and a few other thigns go live immediately'
Lew says, 'the way she said it, sounded like it went in immediately :P'
Huma says, 'but nothing that affects the game'
Huma shakes his head.
Blackmojo says, 'its mighty hard to shoot 2 shot guns at the same time'
Sandra says, 'it'll be for friday. But you'll have to get new ammo'
Blackmojo laughs.
Huma says to Blackmojo, 'Not for people in hong kong cinema!'

Huma says, 'help aim!'
Hacred mutters something about Huma.
Lew snickers softly.
Blackmojo laughs.
Hacred says, 'i refuse!'
Huma says, 'it says it there'
Sandra says, 'aiming does help with some damage, but you don't get the sniper bonus, which is more noticable'
Huma says, 'five successal aims give the best possible chance of killed or critically wounding ones target'
Hacred nods solemnly.
Blackmojo says, 'dont you love it when we are just to lazy to read help files'
Huma says, 'you increase your crit % chance'
Hacred says, 'could you find out for me later?'
Huma says, 'so that is good'

Lew says, 'just not always vis'
Hacred nods his agreement with Huma.
Sandra says, 'in the beginning of 96'
Huma says, 'in fact Rufus is not verbose when you ask him something politely'

Xuvenia ponders Huma's existence.
Xuvenia says, 'no way... you started before i did'
Xuvenia says, 'unless somar started first then got you hooked'
Huma says to Yossarian, 'For me? Uh... there might be.'
Huma says to Sandra, 'Is there a way for us to do that?'
