Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.


To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:
Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?
Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255. On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.
And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!

“On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.”I about pissed myself laughing at this.

NaLu Week | Bonus Prompt: HIGH SCHOOL

*yzma voice* I BET YOU WEREN’T EXPECTING THIS
haha I actually had the idea for this prompt before any of the others I just wasn’t sure if I’d have time to do it but last minute I decided to pull it together. Originally it was going to be a non-paintery drawing but I found myself struggling coloring in SAI so I switched to CS5 to finish it and I’m really happy I did.
Anyway, another of Natsu’s pranks went wrong and hit Lucy instead so to make up for it, he promised to take her out for some karaoke and let her pick all the songs. And of course, to really make him sorry, she chose all the most annoying songs available.
