  1. Ew, god, I forgot how bad the camera is on the phone those were taken. Have a much more recent photo, ft better skin quality. It's also caught my natural hair color unlike the older ones.
  2. Failing to sleep, suffering ptsd flashbacks from the person who abused me, and stress eating trying to cope. Fun fucking shit, yo
  3. Election Fraud is any attempt to, directly or indirectly, invalidate a vote. If this move is done willfully knowing that it will remove a lot of votes from the opposing candidate, then it is fraud.
  4. Shadowrun Hong Kong Still kinda figuring things out.
  5. Attempting a hard reset of my sleep schedule by skipping a night of sleep and passively brainstorming my dnd character for tomorrows game.
  6. A little bit of self awareness goes a long way
  7. I really need to catch up. Stuck way back in season 4 still. hit a dry couple of episodes and sorta lost interest since a lot was going on around that time and never picked it back up :X
  8. We never said it's infallible, we said it's the most reliable. I'm not trusting a person's word on the internet no matter how many times they ask me to when they never never never ever show sources for these wild claims against accepted science. And in the odd case where sources were provided they're either from a biased source or one that actually proved the contrary to the point. It's so much harder to pull off false information when you have to show your work than it is to just say "yeah some scientist I talked to said". So yeah, my mind is open to changing should information come along that would change it but anecdotal evidence ain't it, chief.
  9. Except that's not every scientist ever. Scientists have to go into great detail about what they did to conduct the experiments, talk about whether or not what they observed supports the hypothesis, explain the processes they used to reach those conclusions, AND have it reviewed by other members of the scientific community to make sure everything is in order. Also, you know, needs to be something publicly accessible to be valid and trustworthy because otherwise anyone can make any claim and say their sources are private which AGAIN, you'd have to be a fool to accept it right there. Observing the results of such detailed documentation may take a level of trust as does any information you hear ever, but it is still the most reliable method to understanding something when you do not have the means to perform these experiments yourself. Talking to a scientist with no evidence other than your word is neither trustworthy nor reliable. And she has a point about the mindset you're taking. It's quite frankly useless. It offers nothing that helps in the long run. It's contentedness to do absolutely nothing about a serious issue instead of, you know, at least TRYING to do something.
  10. I don't think people's like for the original C&C games has changed any since EA came about, so kinda defeats it's purpose as an entry in this thread. I actually don't think I've seen a single person hate on the westwood games because EA owns them now. You can make an argument that people who didn't play them when they came out might not like it because they're old but I wouldn't count that honestly I'm also gonna say Borderlands: Pre-Sequel. I got a lot of enjoyment out of it and still cannot figure out where the hate comes from. The most consistent criticism I hear is "jump pads are stupid" which baffles me because the game is loaded with stupid and silly stuff.
  11. It's funny you bring this up as someone I'm friends with has been play FFX again and just got the Sun Sigil, and that was like 5 hours ago. I should beat that game someday. Got all the way to the end and put it down and I couldn't tell you why. Last game was Path of Exile. Blight League just dropped. I have to play Blight League. It's in my name.
  12. Ah. Well there's different crew sizes for different ships. Sloop is maximum of 2 players, brig is max 3 and galleon is max 4. All best operated with max capacity crew but it's entirely possible to 2 man a brig and do just fine
  13. Arena is basically teams of 4 on galleon ships and it's a fight for points. Digging up a chest on an island is 100 points, selling that chest is 1000 points, player kills are 5 points, damaging an enemy ship is 25 points. It is all the base mechanics of treasure hunting from the base game but with a smaller play field. This is my friend who filmed highlights of one of our most fun arena matches. I'm in it but mostly off camera. No need to watch the whole thing, but it is an example. Also there is plenty of pve content to do even if your ship is like the only one on the server. Treasure hunts for the Gold Hoarders, killing npc skeletons for the Order of Souls, cargo runs for the Merchant Alliance, and Tall Tales which is basically the games campaign. Or you can just wander around and fight skeleton ships(npc controlled) or just go fishing. Even if a lot of the player base dies off there's still plenty to do solo or with a crew of friends. Sorry if it feels like I'm trying to sell you this game when I'm sort of just gushing. I enjoy it a lot. Not gonna force anyone to play it.
  14. That's completely understandable. It's very much a game centered around other players and both cooperation and pvp are expected, encouraged and rewarded. They very much went for the idea that you're a pirate and that there's no honor amongst thieves. Aggression is as much a part of the experience as cooperation is. In fact as much as I love the arena mode I feel like the overall decrease in world pvp because of it has greatly detracted from the overall experience and I appreciate that the devs are actively looking for ways to incentivize world pvp encounters again.
