Still possible to grind.
And phyto, you know that there are plenty of games with (made up) rules to be followed. Football for example, only the keepers can use their hands. It would be much easier to win if you simply picked up the ball and ran into the goal, but thats not the case: certain rules make games more challenging, and a more challenging game can bring out more impressive feats of skill.
And syllabear, you should have brains enough to realise that's entirely irrelevant—especially the willy-waving tagged on at the end.
The guy wondered why only "open, etc." servers enforce their gameplay rules, while there aren't servers that enforce so-called closing. Answer: The latter isn't something that needs enforcing, any more than one needs to enforce wall acceleration.
"Open" does require enforcement (much like fortress, by the way) since it is defined not by server settings, but by artificially erected rules that deviate from the default manner of playing, a manner which naturally extends from the game's physics. If there were physics settings that made so-called closing and all the other rules associated with "DF" (e.g., "backdoor"
) impossible, then there would be no need to enforce it, now would there.
