Yeah, that's the point. If I have to play with starlanes, then I like Polaris Sector better (arguably better than Stellaris with or without starlanes). Different FTL was one of the things that made Stellaris really buzz for me. Now they are gone and Stellaris is just one more of a host of the same old thing, though it is admittedly very well done.

I read this, and it is a non-story rehash.  I know all of the economists mentioned in this story (or unmentioned with what they have on their doors).  By "know them" I mean that I know them very well.  Remember my econ background and research.

There was a good reason they were kicked out of the College of Business. 
There was a good reason why they came very close to being dissolved as a department. 
And there are very good reasons why Liberal Arts is trying to get rid of them. 

They are the only department at any school I've ever worked for or been a student at that cannot get along with anyone ever.

Auburn beat Alabama last night with only 7 scholarship players, down two starters, and a third starter had a gimpy ankle.

Heron the #2 scorer was scratched 30 minutes before game time with a stomach bug.  He was hospitalized and on IV fluids.  This left 7 scholarship players against an Alabama team that was much taller and played 10 people.

And Auburn outrebounded them and won by 19.  Auburn just wanted the win a lot more than Alabama did.  They played a lot harder, especially on the boards.  And they really did this with 6 people since Horace Spencer was in serious foul trouble the entire game.  Honestly, Alabama should have easily won this game except they did not play as a team, did not hustle, and did not really fight for rebounds.  I would have been angry if I was a Bama fan and lost the opportunity to sweep Auburn.

Auburn only needs to win one of their last 3 games to clinch the regular season.  This has been one of the most enjoyable seasons of Mens BB that I've followed closely during my lifetime - and that includes a ton of the UNC teams going back to 1980.

Teams cannot exceed their potential, but they almost never play up to their potential.  This year Auburn did - even if they lose the rest of their games because they are so thin.

The joy, and sorrow, of doing these is that there's only going to be one left standing at the end of it all.  Maybe we can petition the band of the winning song to let us use it as the GrogCast music bed.

For grins...I went back and purchased the tier III US Cruiser, the St. Louis. MAN is that thing a beast! No torps, but 20 big guns. Main guns. Heh heh...It eats destroyers like a wolf eats rabbits.

   The Bogatyr is similar: rows of 130mm guns,which makes for booming action in the lower tiers.
