I can see why others might've been disappointed, if they'd been looking forward to the time Alex finally showed his hand...but I thought that ending was PERFECT for him.  I mean, Alex was cool and all...but he spent basically two entire games freeloading off of what everyone else did.  He...

1) Has Saturos and Menardi do most of his dirty work for him, never even bothering to help them with their fights against Isaac and co.

2) Abandons Felix and co. the moment he realizes that they can't do everything for him.

3) He attempts to steal Piers's ship; then runs away the moment Piers gets back

4) He later threatens Felix and co. to hurry up and light the lighthouses...except, he can't actually do it himself. Instad, he has Agatio and Karst drop everything they're doing to sail AAALLLL the way to Champa; all because he can't do his own bullying.

5) Tells Agatio and Karst that he'll back them up against Isaac and co...then turns tail the moment the two parties actually meet.

6) Never attempts to help anyone light Mars Lighthouse.

IMO, the ending is perfect for him.  The guy goes out exactly the same way he came in; TALKING a big game while doing absolutely nothing.

And what really made it perfect (and hilarious)?  The Wise One dropkicks him out of the ending while doing the EXACT same thing to Alex that Alex had been doing to everything else; speaking very politely to Alex while insulting him at the same time.  And somehow, the Wise One does it without even being that mean about it.

I personally LOVED the scene; but I can see how it might've rubbed others the wrong way.. What do you all think?

Fox: I saw we need an event this April Fools/Easter... because two holidays are in one, why would we not want to miss having something special? (Unfortunately, there's no one here to make an event be successful.)

Fox: And since that's the case...  I have thought of another fun experiment idea. - What if we had an auction on who should run this site, and waited for 10 people to bid and also for a bare minimum of 24 hours. Who would bid the highest, and how much would that bid be? - The idea is more for lulz (Maybe for April Fools?), and a theory to get an idea of how much the site might be worth as well.

KyleRunner: "difficult thing about the army": I'm very good at taking orders, so I don't have issues with autority or discipline. The most difficult thing is to be away from my family sometimes. I lived an entire year away from my son, so I'd say that was the most hard part by far. Now it's great!

Fox: That's good to hear... just checking if there were any possibility of doubt. What would you say was your most difficult thing about the army?
February 18, 2018, 12:39:38 PM
KyleRunner: Well, it was a destiny kinda thing, but I was very happy when I decided to join. It was just like I thought it would be (not in the beginning, though). I'm very pleased with my decision.

Fox: That's awesome!  Trying to figure what question I want to ask Something about how you felt when you made the decision to do the army, and whether it was different than your expectations/etc.

KyleRunner: Wow... My english got rusty. Anyway... I'm in the army now. My life turned 180. But I think it was for the best.

Fox: Hm? So where does that make you today?
February 16, 2018, 12:06:38 AM
KyleRunner: Five years ago I could not even imagine where I am today. I hope it works well for you too!

Fox: 2018 - The year that I will probably be working a manufacturing job. xP What would I have thought, if I told myself this five years ago. Eh?

Fox: You referring to changing the PC/leader sprite to someone else? - I forgot to mention that you can do this using VBA's memory viewer. (Found under Tools.)
