Comment why did this take so long? (Score 1) 198

I don't understand how this took an entire studio 6.5 months of engineering work? I'm probably oversimplifying but, start by running a local instance of the server, then point all queries to Is it working? Great. Now make changes to the server or client as necessary to suit a single player mode. Like allow mods and such. Sounds like they are not keeping things simple, if that's the best explanation they have.

Comment Re:The guy can't memorize times tables. (Score 1) 384

The guy can't memorize times tables. That is not just random "memorization", there are patterns and other contextual clues such as relationships to prime numbers, etc.

I imagine he has difficulty learning new words, terms, acronyms, etc.

That level of memorization is absolutely a core requirement for education and understanding.

How can you understand complex concepts if you can't remember the simple ones?

Wrong. I can't memorize my times tables either. I am consistently above average in my math courses, and am now taking second year math courses. Think again. Understanding simple concepts and memorizing formulas/terms/tables are entirely different.
