Lotto means luck. In online video games back in the early 00's people would say "lo2" if they lost and they felt it was undeserved, a way to tell the opposition they might have won, but they are still worse than you. If you were less impossibly sexy and a lot more nerdy you'd know this, but no, you go about with your magical nuts and dazzles us instead.

For example, if you had a game called, say, MERCENARIES, racial theme made not much sense, whereas with a game called EVIL ORCS AGAINST GOOD ELVES you'd probably expect a racial set-up.

Well, you missed out on the crucial point that this is generally speaking, not an universal truth. If there is a setting (not a game specifically mind you) where I think thematic factions would work better, I would prefer thematic factions. Most of the time I simply think a racial faction is more interesting.

I'm just stating the obvious. I mean, I could say, "Most of the time I simply think that Heroes on the battlefield are more interesting that when they are off." That's more or less the same type of statement (we have HEROES games with both variants and there are OTHER games to compare them with). But it doesn't really mean anything, because it all rather depends. You could even concur with that opinion - but that doesn't mean, ANY SPECIFIC game would be more interesting with Heroes ON the battlefield than off. You might say that in a game like AoW, yes, because there are no trade-offs, but in a game like Heroes it depends because there ARE trade-offs.

Or, in simpler words, it's like saying, most of the time I like wine more than beer - but that doesn't mean I would go for a wine on the evening of a 30+ degrees Celsius day, and it also doesn't mean I would go for every kind of wine, so it's all about SPECIFICS, not about generalizing.

I wasn't contradicting you nor even took part in the argument, but the cut of your jib I haven't read for so long made me chuckle.

It's a matter of patience - or I should probably say IMpatience. The older I get the thinner my patience wears, and there hasn't been much to begin with.
