If you truly are a robit why don't you perform tasks in a more efficient manner? I'm talking about tasks such as eating dinner in front of your computer to prioritize shooting more robits in a finite amount of time.

No. The new fonts are horrible.

If you are often imitated, but never duplicated does that make you gold-pressed Latinum?

Mr. Xetherius:

I'm sorry to report, but you're thinking of the wrong Anders. I am a robot, the one you're thinking of loves cats. Robots do not love cats.

We here at the Word of Lowtax realize that you have limited entertainment electrons and appreciate that you're spending your questions on us.

Ammunition based weapons are suboptimal. Strap more medium lasers to it instead.

tacos as special ammo might make machine guns useful. plus gauss rifles are far from sub-optimal.

Space Poors piloting Fleas with nothing but machine guns are quite useful as target dummies. By proxy this would make machine guns useful..

and thank you for establishing this wonderful and informative thread once again.

It's useful in establishing that it's not useful.

Asides from the general lack of emotions, why can't robots love cats? I thought Bender did at one point.

With so many new players in the Open Beta, I feel it might be a good idea to get some commonly asked questions (CAQ) answered! I'll start:

Q: "Why do you SQUUAWWK?"
A: Because we are birds, except for Anders who is a robot.

A tear will be shed in honor of the previous thread.

Edit: Wow this layout is terrible. I try not to complain about things like this but really... wow... this is awful.
