Re: Fact-checking and critical thinking

Unfortunately, sometimes the only way to prove something is to show the source code, and should we really do that? If you want people to fact check, you're going to have to.

As someone who's been in two guilds over the years where some NPCs had been specifically coded to avoid our combat tactics, I can say there have been biases baked into the game.

That will fix everything.
