comment How to get a pet on WoW?
well, pet battles have no influence on your character or the world so the other answer still stands, they're vanity items. IMO the entire "pet battle" thing is just an attempt to appeal to the pokemon crowd.

comment Why should I take showers?
which makes the world come alive, which is good for immersion. Like the critters walking around in Guild Wars 2, without them things would look a lot more static, not good.

comment Is investing money at the bank just a scam?
@Assylum hence the name? The vast majority of the world's population doesn't know or care about Southpark. And given the episodes I've seen I can't blame them.\

comment What is the difference between Non-Player Characters (NPCs) and bots in video games?
There are games where the game engine will generate team members for you to fight at your side. Dungeon Siege for example. Those aren't bots.

comment What is the difference between Non-Player Characters (NPCs) and bots in video games?
The last case you mention are still npcs (though they blur the line). Bots are player characters controlled through AI, rather than game generated characters. NPCs are generally scripted rather than having AI.

comment Why is my army weaker than computer's army?
even if he's the defender, he might still suffer penalties. Not sure if EUIV implements that, but I've seen games where say defending a low lying area gives you a disadvantage.

and then there's terrain penalties (mountains, rivers, weather) affecting the attacker different from the defender.

and because of rounding errors etc. even MechJeb et. al. can't provide the accuracy required.

comment What version is the Kerbal Space Program demo?
@fbueckert the demo version is a stripped down variant of 0.18.(I think)4. It replaced 0.13 because that was no longer even remotely representative. Of course 0.20 brought major changes again.

comment How do I determine a landing position in Kerbal Space Program?
Watching where MechJeb places the aiming point for surface intersect relative to the planned landing spot, then see how it burns and when, can teach you a lot. Far more imo than looking at youtube videos where people just brag about their accomplishments.

comment Will my parachute fail if I'm going too fast when I deploy it?
parachutes will start stabilising the flight path as soon as deployed AFAIK as drogue chutes, but won't fully open until 500m above ground level (which can be a ways up if you're landing in a mountain region).

If you're wary of losing Kerbals, unmanned probes are the way to go for testing :)

comment Cataclysm substitute to gear/player score?
that wasn't gearscore why you couldn't enter an instance, it was itemlevel, it's current equivalent and effectively an weighted average of the item levels of each individual item. The old gearscore was calculated different, and can still be seen on websites like wowhead and elsewhere (though the wowhead profiler is offline as of right now). Itemlevel is displayed on your character screen, and if you can't enter an instance the dungeon finder will tell you who in the party has their levels too low.
