    Boys, settle down

    540- An oasis of green can be hidden for 60 years from everyone somehow.
     
  3. 541. The Enclave didn't even consider making their base at some place different like, I don't know. THE WHITE HOUSE.

    And if you think it would be too much of a strain on resources to clear out the mutants and mercs...

    542. They'll send Vertiberd squads to investigate the destruction of one tiny little radio broadcasting bot.

    #543. I can use completely different pieces of clothing to fix other pieces of clothing, and it will still look exactly the same as when it was almost completely useless. No patches or stitches or mismatched colors!

    544. The BoS has enough time and resources to build a maze of trenches and send soldiers out to talon company forts, but not enough to send some soldiers to vault 87.

    Yeah, because the Enclave is completely guided by semantics and tradition right?

    Raven Rock: Built for Continuity of Government.

    Capitol Building - because the White House is a crater: Lacks any sustainable sources of water, food, Vertibird maintainence and storage, laboratory facilities...

    Yeah, because the fact there are TWO armies camped outside it, and a Behemoth, aswell as several hundered raiders on the outskirts is not a deterrant for occupying an old half destoyed wooden building with no supplies or facilities? Oh wait.

    My personal theory has always been that the Enclave force was just an exspeditionary force and thier main base is somewere else, this would explain the complete lack of Enclave citizens. I mean if you really think about why the you set of you capital right next too the BOS. The rest of the Enclave are hiding out in the divide and chicago.

    Except that we know they are not, Augustus Autumn's father led the majority of the surviving Enclave from Navarro to Raven Rock either directly on Eden's orders or following some previous directive from the Richardson administration.

    We know this, this is fact. Unless you are suggesting that all of the Enclave forces we saw in Fallout 3 were a smaller fraction of a larger group in Chicago which I would have to say is both illogical and unlikey. I mean firstly, why would the location where the President lives be the result of an expiditionary force?

    We knew when Fallout 3 was the latest game, the story is highly amendable. The Enclave was also confirmed destroyed in Fallout 2. Also keep in mind that it was confirmed that the Enclave would apear in Vegas. I don't think the remnants cut it, I think we will meat a group of Enclave servivors at the devide. Also remember how EDE's logs point out the existence of bases around Chicago, base'SSSS as in plural. I don't think this was done just for laughs but in response to fans who were unhappy with the lackluster demise of the Enclave in Broken Steel.[/code]
     
  11. It wouldn't have been lackluster if beth just let them go out with a bang in Fallout 2. But noooooo, they brought them back in another inane attempt to be "Fallouty."

    It's not a story, it's canonically what happened according to Bethesda.

    Not really, Navarro for one thing.

    So what? You expect their to be some large Enclave presence in the Divide? I find that highly unlikely and illogical. Whilst I do expect some mention of them I certainly don't expect to see anything more than what the Remnants were.

    Bases could mean anything - it also says "Outposts", an Outpost being a temporary base away from the mainforce ala Adam's Airforce Base.

    What they do have in the Capitol building are mercenaries and Super Mutants in abundant supply.

    Then there's that Behemoth who somehow managed to get inside the Rotunda, and somehow managed to stay still long enough for mercs to set up laser turrets around it.

    "The title of President is now only used to scare children" not an exact quoute but a whole lot different than most of Enclave retreating east with the the rest being hunted down by the BOS and the NCR.

    Point is the developers can do what they want.

    Not only does that refer only to Richardson but it's also contradicted by the fact that the NCR is led by a President. They said nothing in Fallout 2 about the Enclave's fate though I believe it's more than obvious that the Remnants we see in Vegas are pretty much what was going to happen; Navarro collapses, Enclave gone.

    Fucking Bethesda...

    546. Everything is totally resistant to damage. Shooting stuff with a rocket launcher will at best just move it around

    547. Once cola is made ice cold, it can sit on a table forever and stay cold.

    I wanted to learn more, but my game crashed.

    548. If you want to be an totally evil person, you must first help a good organisation first, and then be evil at the last minute, despite the presence of the enclave throughout the game.
