Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

its 3 right?
Lol. I'll retract what I posted. I was trying to figure it out by talking to myself. These are the parts I thought made sense:
The Inverse Law states that anything minus itself equals zero.Originally Posted by Inverse Law
Under experimentation with two identical objects not in the same space, I observe:
1+1-1 is not zero
Therefore 1 + 1 is NOT 1.
Under further experimentation I observe:
1+1-1-1 is zero
Both objects are identical, yet no matter which order I remove them in, I get zero. I intuitively claim that each object is half of 1+1. I propose that the double of one (object) is called "two". Why? Because this saves us the trouble of saying "one plus one" every time we refer to a double quantity of objects.

In the ring of integers with the usual addition and multiplication: 1+1=2. Consult the Peano Axioms if you want a reason.
In the ring of integers modulo 2: 1+1=0.
Final answer: Just go with 2 if you don't want to play around with basic algebra.
And don't read the stuff Phenoca posted.
i really dont know much math lol
1+1=0b10. youll always confuse yourself when you use a different formula when it comes to basic math.
