Heya.

Well, as some of you might know, Greypawn recently posted saying

Quote:

On Tuesday, BHG will have something rather large to announce to the public... something that will probably draw quite a bit of attention to Rise of Legends.
I think you guys will be pleasantly surprised.

.

That's in http://rol.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=ct&f=4,702,0,365, if you were wondering.

Anyway, Greypawn and I were talking on MSN, and he revealed what he called a 'clue' about Tuesday to me. Sounds like a load of gibberish to me. The clue is:
kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Now, this may sound like gibberish, but secrets could be contained. I have already theorised that it could refer to a post, or posts, containing an answer to the question but disguised. It could also be something hidden in the code of a site relevant to the game - it could even be hidden in the code or on a fansite's non-forums part. The shape of the K in the font he uses suggests a smiley face maybe - emoticons, or buddy images for IM Clients that never got released maybe? Maybe even in game!?

Another idea is one of a rise of legends movie! Evidence is that Greypawn suddenly asked me if I wanted a movie sized RoL Poster, to which I happened to say yes, though I expect that's irrelevant. Movie Sized. The specific use of this phrase could suggest something. Maybe an ad campaign even, like they do for films?!


THE PLOT THICKENS...

I don't know what's up with the kkk

But, maybe BHG will be making RoL for consoles like Xbox.

I have heard from a reliable source that The KKK where going to be in Snopp Dog for PS2. Are they making a console game?

It is a major possibility.

While I'm usually content to let speculation run rampant, on that particular topic I can definitely say it is not a major possibility.

Obviously, the KKK will be the new race for the expansion pack.

Their basic infantry will be Clansmen, the traditional men in white sheets. Their national ability will be "lynch", they will have a burning cross attack, and... and...


Come to think of it, that would be a poor decision.

I shouldn't have brought that up.

Let's move on and not talk about the KKK.

Edit: Cool. This thread is so colorful.

Evolved...is it exactly the clue given by Greypawn or did you just type a random number of K's?

If that is exactly the clue given by greypawn I thought it might be useful to let anybody interested in trying to break the code know that there are 98 ks in that string. No I didn't count them by myself I used word count on microsoft word.

PS.:I think those k's diserve a name so I thought...

The "Da Timonium code". Since Da Vinci means from Vinci and BHG is in Timonium this name will suit it well. It could also be "Greypawn code". You guys decide it.

98 k's = $98,000 ?

Yeah right.

Seriously though, It is possible this is some sort of code as suggested, and they prolly have no where near that money to spend.

EDIT: I didn't realise the KKK was the Ku Klux Klan. Stupid Me.

EDIT2: I want Tuesday to come!

Well that' an easy code to crack. Quite simply, bhg is going to introduce a new civ in a patch. It will be based entirely ont he idea of flying toenail clippers. I can't believe none of you could figure it out on your own.

This is a forged signature.

Now seriously...the only thing that makes sense is the advert campaign.

Let's think about this.

When did Greypawn announce this? In a thread that claimed the game would soon be history due to small online comunity. What better way solve this than advertising the game?

He said "On Tuesday, BHG will have something rather large to announce to the public.." We're all thinking BHG will announce something new but I think what Greypawn means is "On Tuesday, BHG will have something rather large to announce RISE OF LEGENDS to the public"....He also said "something that will probably draw quite a bit of attention to Rise of Legends." This is clearly evidence for the advert theory. This sentence mirrors the normal uncertainty before the release of an ad. They have put a lot of effort to make that ad and they think it's really good but since not everyone plays computer games and only some of those who play actually care about RTS's they can't know that for sure before it's on the TV's hence the "probably". In the end he said " I think you guys will be pleasantly surprised". Simple: People complain there's nobody in MP so everybody will expect a burst of life in MP.

As if it wasn't enough there's the movie sized poster thing Evolved mentioned.

About the k's...well I don't know how they fit in this theory but there must be some connection

Maybe the number of 'k's is the number of extra damage afreets (or afreeti, to appease those grammar freaks :P) are going to receive in the next patch?

I have a Rise of Nations movie sized poster at home! Maybe that means RoN will get a movie too?


Also, point of note: Tomorrow on the Team Sportcast Network we will reveal more of this mystery LIVE from the World Series of Video Games Intel Summer Championships in Texas.

I'm not sure of the time, not even sure what it is i'll be announcing! But it's all wrapped up in this mystery announcement on tuesday. Check it out tomorrow at http://wsvg.tsncentral.com

Also, we'll be on until sunday covering the Halo 2, Ghost Recon:AW, Quake 4, and Counterstrike 1.6 tournaments here in Grapevine Texas, so be sure to tune in anyway We're on right now as of fact, with a Q4 match.

I'm betting with PepsiDude: tournament. It's probably whatever scraps MS gave them for a marketting budget. 100k is nothing for direct advertising, but it could be quite a bit for a tourney.

These BHG guys just love making us suffer with letting us know about something "coming on Tuesday". Sheesh. Cruel and unusual, I say.

Anyway, I think if there is any real clue it will be found by analyzing what Greypawn was responding to when he made that statement. Off the top of my head, the originator of the thread in question was complaining about MP connectivity and the "slow death of a great game".

This leads me to speculate that the mystery might have something to do with either a new online gaming server (if this is possible or even feasible) for RoL or perhaps RoL will be in the next WCG, something along those lines.

hm, sounds like greypawn started sleeping for 1 min with his head on the "k" button, then his head rolled a bit to the right on the "return" button, but instead of admitting that he fell to sleep while working, he created that story for us! What a tricky guy... ;-)
