Despite some of the issues there are (which are pretty minor in my opinion) there is a lot going on between the two modes. Think about it, every gun, armor, stat, ability all work cohesively and almost seamlessly when going from one mode to the other. With what Bungie is able to do with a game like Destiny and its FPS/Looter/RPG aspects is amazing to me, and while balancing can be a tough thing to get right, they've done a damn good job. Not to mention, the quality of the game is second to none.
Edit: You guys are too kind. I guess I just want to throw in that this is also one of the best gaming communities I've had the pleasure of being a part of, despite it's ups and downs. Thank you Bungie.
I feel like hearing ‘I love you’ from someone has more meaning than ‘love ya’ which feels like it’s an afterthought or throw away comment.
One of the most common video game praise you hear is "visually stunning" or "realistic graphics". I don't think I've ever heard praise for sound design. Don't get me wrong visuals are important also, but for me personally what makes a game realistic and immersive is the way it sounds. Its just pure ear candy the way some video games sound nowadays. My favorites are Fallout 4, Borderlands 3, and Day of Infamy.
This is a big thing that I've only recently realised I suffer from. I'll get into a new piece of content - a book, a movie, a show, whatever - and I'll enjoy it. But as I delve deeper into it, I'll come to realise that the fanbase is absolutely horrible. Associating such shittiness with the media puts me in a mindset that is much more receptive to negative aspects of the content, and before long I will begin to actively dislike it is as my list of criticisms outpaces my list of positives.
Let's take Steven Universe. Pretty fresh idea, interesting characters, some catchy songs. An enjoyable show, overall. But whad'ya know, its community so hateful and toxic that their constant seething is probably visible from fucking orbit. Well, that's awful, you say to yourself. But all you're doing is innocently watching the show. They're weird, you enjoy it, so just ignore them, right? You block out those repulsive groups and try to enjoy the show on your own. And so, you start to watch the next episode, but... now, it's different somehow. You can't seem to forget that the people who like this show actively bullied an artist to the point of attempting suicide because she didn't make a character fat enough. And then you start noticing more things.
Hey, the animation of this show is actually, like, really, really fucking terrible, with no consistency at all.
Wow, these award-winning songs are just the same 5 plinky chords on a ukulele rehashed a million times.
Huh, don't know how I didn't notice this earlier but the voice acting is laughably bad half the time.
Wow, what a fucking awful climax. Steven sings a song to a genocidal warlord and suddenly they're innocent?
Damn, this show is actually shit, isn't it?
It's happened with so many pieces of media that I've previously enjoyed. I used to watch MHA, and enjoyed it a lot. But man, something about that show just rots the fucking brain. The fanbase, its community, is awful. So now, I don't like MHA, because all I can think about is how much of a

Huh, never noticed how empty, uninspired, and inconsistent this world-building is, nor how awful the overarching t
My (18F) relationship with my mother has always been on the rocks. She was abusive since I was a kid and just really stressed me out over studies from the very beginning. I can’t really write her whole cycle of toxicity here, but when I think about it the few instances that come to mind are about the time she shoved and choked me because I talked to her when she was on the phone, when she called me a psycho and said no one would marry me for self harming and when she blamed me for her cancer when I was 12. The physical abuse reduced as I grew up tho.
She’s always been very conservative and I’ve generally complied to her rules. I tried my best to score good grades, I didn’t go out and party like my friends, didn’t socialise much etc. Three years ago I broke one of the rules and got in a relationship. A month ago, she found out about it by snooping through my phone and checking my belongings when I wasn’t home. She found a few gifts and several photos of me and bf. Then followed a whole lot of melo-drama, crying, name calling, slut shaming and threats of honour killing. All from her side. She made me break up with him and laughed at me when I cried. I’ve always had terrible migraines since I was like 11. She claimed that I got those migraines every morning because I stayed up the previous nights talking to bf. I’m a very reserved person and after 12 am I don’t like to talk to anyone. Ofc she didn’t believe me.
She now takes my phone every night. I’m fine with it, I suppose it’s alright considering what I did. I guess I have to deal with giving my phone and having it checked everyday. Other than that, she doesn’t let me sleep for more than 5 hours. I’m expected to study the whole day. She doesn’t let me be in the bathroom for more than 15 minutes. The other day I was in there for too long apparently. She knocked on the door and commanded me to come out. I told her I was pooping and she asked me to show her proof. She made me open the door and literally saw my shit! She peeked in the toilet bowl. I was just so shocked at this new level of crazy that came over. After seeing it, she said ‘What do I know, maybe it’s a previous poo, not the one you just pretended to do’ I was so utterly disgusted by her. Who checks an 18 year old’s shit? She says she made me break up with bf of 3 years to help improve my health so that I don’t get migraines and study more. I have worse migraines now, because she won’t let me sleep and stresses me out with her craziness. I’m tr... keep reading on reddit ➡
I think we tend to focus on cardiac fitness and strength, with a little flexibility on the side. But as I’ve aged, I’m realizing that approach, at least as I’ve done it, is omitting some very important things that are super important to aging well and maximizing healthy years with good mobility. Most people on here are younger, but I think it might be a good discussion to talk about training to age well (meaning with good mobility/agility/strength/etc).
I’m 50. I run 20-30 miles a week and lift weights. I hike regularly. I’m pretty fit in general, and I definitely am pretty fit “for my age.” Still, lately I’ve realized I’m suffering from a creeping loss of mobility. I’m feeling stiff too much of the time, and I’m worried about how that can quickly start restricting overall activity. I think it’s mostly due to lack of flexibility/agility, and I need to start actively training these.
What are your experiences with actively training for increased mobility? Do you have programs that you’d recommend? Have you successfully regained some lost ease of movement? What else needs to be trained?
While age-related changes to fitness are inevitable, we can definitely prolong our years of healthy movement—how do we do this best?
let me start this of by introducing me: I am a German Brawl Stars player and have been playing in competetive Brawl Stars for about 2 years now. I had multiple top 4 finishes in my countries' (Germany, Austria and Swiss) big tournaments/leagues and am currently moving more towards being a coach (bc i have pretty decent macro knowledge but struggle when it comes to micros). In addition to being a player I work as a coach together with Top 16 Teams in my region.
Now to my question. As you all probably know it is nearly impossible to get any decent video guide on the strategic aspects of Brawl Stars. Ofc there are the pro channels who review their gameplay form time to time but even if you follow all of them you get like a handful of very specific tips throughout every video. All of those prob sum up after some time but still you might be lacking a lot of basic knowledge to be able to implement those tips into your gameplay.
And this brings me to the idea of creating such a channel myself. I was always looking for something like this when I wanted to improve my gameplay but as I said, there are about a handful of actually viable guides out there and for Brawl Stars to go brrrr in eSports this clearly has to change. And right now, with Power League coming up, this is probably a decent moment to do so.
Now I also had some ideas about videos and even wrote some scripts already but tbh this is a hell of work to do so before I actually do it I wanted to know if you guys think that this would be appreciated by the community.
Thanks for all your answers, I am happy to answer any questions if you name them.
I wish you all a nice day and stay safe <3
Edit: thanks for all the nice replies guys, I will try to provide some content asap but quality is gonna be shitty at first bc my setup is pretty dang trash. I will post it here once I am uploading videos so keep your eyes open :)
Edit 2: Damn this really blew up much bigger and faster than I thought. I tried to reply to all comments and especially thank everyone for their awards but I might have missed some. If I did then this is for you <3 Thanks so much for your support <3
P.S.: What topics would you guys be interested in first?
In Mark Rosewater's latest article, a player asks about a frequently mentioned criticism among some enfranchised Commander players, specifically that WotC designing so many cards specifically for the format takes away the appeal of finding and discovering cards and hidden gems for the format. Here's the full exchange:
>EldraziMTG asked: Why are there so many cards designed for edh? The fun of discovery for the format is gone.
>Mark Rosewater answered: There are ramifications to being the most played format. R&D is going to design cards for it. However, that doesn't mean there isn't room for a lot of discovery. The key is to give yourself constraints for your deck that force you to look places you might normally not. For example, try playing a legendary creature that you've never seen played as a commander before. Pick a piece of pop culture you adore and use that as inspiration for a theme. Limit yourself to only ten sets to pull from. A lot of fun can come from giving yourself constraints.
>I do hear the larger note that we could be less prescriptive with the cards we design with Commander in mind. That is a note we've heard from numerous players and are taking to heart. The goal is to make more cards that let you explore cool things in Commander and less that force you to have to play a card if you're playing a certain theme.
What are your thoughts on Mark Rosewater's answer?
It's getting harder and harder to believe bungie doesn't hate Warlocks. Between all the direct and indirect Shadebinder nerfs this season (a subclass which was strong but not op in PVE, and greatly below the Titan and Hunter subclasses in PVP) why is there such a disparity in abilities?
The Warlock melee has slightly more range, but a travel time, making it easy to dodge, additionally with no way to shatter and the melee's undocumented damage nerf, its now impossible to do enough damage to kill someone with a primary outside of just meleeing them on warlock, defeating the purpose of it's only range advantage.
The Titan melee on the other hand is instant, gives full freeze duration, and makes crystals which they can shatter to do still insane AOE damage, AND also shatter to synergize for even more grenade energy (and melee energy if they run the other aspect). All of this is in addition to the Titans original melee ability that gives insane movement options/can one shot by throwing you into a wall or off the map.
This isn't even discussing the rest of the subclass imbalances, yet the changes we get this season are a single buff to the already super strong hunter melee, and multiple warlock nerfs to hammer it down even further below the other classes. What's the balance justification for these changes other than hurting Warlocks?
Edit: Since this has blown up a bit there are some things I want to clarify; I play all three classes equally and genuinely enjoy the power fantasy of each. I by no means am calling for a nerf to the new Titan aspect, I think it actually solves the biggest problem Stasis Titan has in pve (having a pretty lack luster melee that doesn't synergize with the rest of the kit). Now you can make crystals with the melee, which you can shatter for grenade energy, use for ad clear and it pairs very well with charged with light/heart of inmost light for ability spam.
The issue I'm trying to bring to light is the disparity with which things have been handled in terms of class balance. The way Warlock kit functions is such that it has no way to slow and relies entirely on freezing to get rolling, along with no way to shatter other than shooting frozen targets. Due to this Warlock cannot reliably benefit from Whisper of Shards for grenade regeneration and was dependent on Iceflare Bolts, which has now had its grenade regeneration ability removed. Then for PVP I'm not disagreeing that there are benefits and negatives to each melee ability,... keep reading on reddit ➡
Iceflare Bolts used to have a hidden perk that allows you to gain some Grenade Ability energy for every Frozen target you kill:
And in a recent Update, it was nerfed by having the Grenade Regeneration removed from the game.
Shadebinder is not as powerful now compared to the other Stasis Subclass. Isn’t Shadebinder meant to be a crowd control subclass? Having faster access to my Grenades makes the Shadebinder more unique over the other classes.
Why is the Cosmic Ice Wizard getting punished for casting more Cosmic Ice Magic while the Behemoth can fly using an ice gauntlet and the Revenant can fulfill his fantasy as an Ice Ninja?
Why must you hurt Warlocks? We don’t have a shattering ability like the Hunter’s Shatterdive, which is a literally a better Dawnblade’s Phoenix Dive, okay fine. We can’t air dash like the Behemoth, okay fine. At least don’t touch our Grenade regeneration...
Which isn't to say that they're the single nerdiest archetype (I personally believe INTP now and forever will hold that crown), but I feel it's very rarely (if ever) brought to light just how cerebral INFJs are. In my mind, they are heavily akin to many of the Ravenclaw archetypes found in JK Rowling's Harry Potter.
I suspect part of the reason for this is due, in part, to the first manifested extroverted function, i.e., extroverted feeling, which the INFJ community seems to often flaunt as something they're tremendously proud of (the means by which we express ourselves), but which, in my observation, seems to hold less resonance for the INFJ than the authenticity of the things being conveyed (the "searching for just the right word" thing many Ni-dominants seem to suffer from).
While I've heard the INFJ phrased as "most charismatic introvert" (something I would personally subscribe to), the fact remains: they are introverts.
They study people both by means of observation and academia (i.e., philosophy, psychology, sociology, etc.), but this doesn't translate into everyday life. The result of this intense study and desire for authenticity often leads into vacillating back and forth between "hi, how're you, my name is OrdanCoal, lovely weather out, isn't it?" and "what is the purpose of life and why are we here?" (at which point the stranger they they just met relocates two seats further towards the bus driver/exit).
While capable of both profound thought and a distinct understanding not only of the human condition, but their unique place in it, this comes as a consequence to the level of alienation experienced by the INFJ, who finds the more they come to understand themselves, the more they begin to realize that others do not and, as the individual proceeds into an increasingly "pure" presentation of the type, this sense of alienation and self-referential manner of speech becomes more and more pronounced (the "Ni echo chamber").
People that live by their dreams are not understood by the waking world.
While not necessarily socially inept (with INFJs just as disdainful of small talk as INTPs)^(1), the ponderings and musings experienced by the Ni-dominant (on a near daily basis), in conjunction with a desire of heavily "heady" subjects the individual is presently interested in (politics, religion, etc.), often leaves the observer with the impression the individual "has their head in the clouds", a sort of "nerdy daydreamer".

Sometimes I just want a relaxed drive and people riding my ass gives me anxiety for my car.
I get anxious when a red light turns green the car behind me is riding my bumper expecting me to floor it everytime. It's even worse when I need to brake due to traffic and cars are still riding my bumper knowing that my brakes can stop car much faster then their vehicle.
The other thing is the constant need for people to show off that their car is faster than mine. I would be driving a little over the limit or fast off the line acceleration and boom I see cars attempt to drive faster than me as if it's a personal challenge . Note that this behaviour is rare for me from other sports or performance cars or sleepers. It's more normal cars, vans and suvs. I find in general other performance car owners to be more relaxed in general.

I've been trying to figure out why there's more of a charm and rawness with Drag Race UK season 2 compared to the current US season, and I feel it's because of how the UK series frames and makes artistic choices on how they film, edit, and show the interviews of the queens (I'd say how they light and show the set as well!) that shows that drag is not just an art, but also something that pays the bills. The feeling has been festering in me before they paused for the lockdown, but when Lawrence and Bimini were discussing how they didn't have a job in seven months and how their job is "no longer feasible" I thought I was in breadtube and the condition of the working class just smacked me hard.
Edit: In comparison, the US version really highlight's the artistic and expressive (and some times the advocacy) that comes with drag. However, I never connected class and drag in the US series.
I'd love to see what other folks think about this!
I feel like the draw and charm of this show started with people having bare essentials and surviving in a harsh land, not strategy. Dont get me wrong, I love great strategic play but I feel like the show is getting stale and quickly with a focus on strategic play. Some of my favorite Survivor moments have been from the survival aspect, and human interaction.
Example: My favorite moments from WaW were the ladder sequence, catching the shark, and the coconut and log collecting on the Edge.
See what I mean? Please tell me I'm not alone.

In my experience, it is assumed by most in American culture that married couples not only should sleep in the same bed routinely, but also should want to sleep together. My unpopular opinion is that this expectation doesn’t make any sense, and that married couples should feel very comfortable doing whatever they want in regard to their sleeping arrangements.
My own recent experience has made me think about this more. My wife and I have recently started sleeping in separate places in our house. She sleeps in our bed, and I sleep on a couch in our basement. We have two toddlers, so we are both dog tired at night, and we just genuinely get better rest when we sleep alone.
Further, we are both introverts, and we genuinely enjoy getting to sleep alone as an aspect of self care. After long hard days, it is restorative for both of us to be alone for our sleep, just to shut the door to our private places, and sleep all night. We genuinely feel better in the morning when we sleep this way.
On the topic of sex: we have just never been much for middle-of-the-night sex, and most of our sex happens at opportune moments during the day or evening. We both just prefer to sleep once we’re in bed.
We do like to cuddle, and sometimes it’s nice to sleep together for that reason, but in general we have just started to prefer sleeping separately. We cuddle and snuggle on the couch in the evenings while watching tv, etc., but then we say goodnight and head to our separate spots.
We also stay up until different times sometimes, and this helps avoid waking each other up when we come to bed later than the other. The same applies to early wake ups that don’t match the other persons schedule.
We are very happily married and have a strong, trusting relationship. In fact, that’s the main reason why we were able to just say to one another one night: “why are we doing this? Let’s both go sleep where we’re comfortable. See you in the morning!”
My opinion is not that sleeping apart is better, rather, it’s just that sleeping in the same bed should not be an assumed aspect of a happy marriage. I think people who are married should feel perfectly confident and comfortable making their sleeping arrangements fit their own needs as a couple, and doing whatever works best for them and brings them the most health and rest.
Learning about my 8th house Sun & Mars in Aries in 4th I was like “aha.”
For Michigan State, there's a lot way south of campus along Mount Hope Rd where you can park for free.
There's a shuttle service where you can pay only $5 for a 2-way ticket to the stadium and back after the game, and it runs for over 2 hours after the game ends.
And if you want some exercise you can walk to the stadium (15-20 min).
Considering how much some places charge for parking, it's an absolute DEAL to pay only $5 for 'parking' and a shuttle to the stadium.
is probably famine. I don't know if you guys saw a picture of meat shop taken during late 1800/early 1900s in Siberia. The meat it sells is human meat and even worse, it's their own kid's flesh. Extreme starvation seems to turn anyone into cannibalistic animal that prioritizes survival for oneself. When humans become so desperate for survival their morality and compassion shut down completely and psychopathic traits seem to take over. I truly fear for the world in which you constantly have to worry about defending yourself from other humans and possibly having to commit murder just to survive. At that point, life will seem absolutely terrifying. Life might as well be comparable to attack on titan's universe. It will seem bleak even if you somehow become respected member of a large clan/gang because of how shitty the conditions will be for life. The worst shit is that we won't ever find the truth to all of this unnecessary suffering because we won't have the time nor the capacity to keep exploring the truth. Why are we born? Why is the universe like this? Why is there evolution? Consciousness? and what about the nightmarish possibility that we might, again, be born again?? It truly terrifies me. I'm not suffering much currently but I'm damn aware how easily this bubble can pop in my current life.
Ok, So there is something I am noting in regards to Season of the Chosen that I don't really think happens often in Destiny history. And that is, for once, both the in game casual story, and the in depth lore story, are being used to work together more coherently then before.
Let's look at Caiatl, since she seems to be the focal point of all that. In the lore (And I'm no expert on this current lore) she has been taught by Calus to try and apprecate art, and taught by the captain of the cabal armies why war is important. She represents a meeting point for the old and new of the cabal.
Thing is, in the lore the Cabal lose their home. It's gone, probably for good. And everything Caiatl has done so far lorewise has been impacted by that loss, and by the needs of her people.
The main difference here? THAT'S ALSO SHOWN IN GAME. The entire choice of trying to get Guardians in her empire is because of this, and that is said as such in game. It's WHY she held the meeting with Zavala. In HELM dialogue, in actual speach. she explans her reasoning more in depth then in the ill fated meeting. And in this weeks Glykon mission, we are able to come to a arrangement and understanding regarding the Glykon and future endeavors there. We hear her talk about the losses of her people too.
All of that lore stuff? IT'S BEING SHOWN, AND IMPACTED ON, IN GAME, IN THE MAIN PLOT, IN A WAY THAT ENRICHES BOTH OF THEM.
Now it's not perfect. For example, I'm given to understand from others the failure of the opening meeting was mainly due to cultural differences. The opening cutsecne of the meeting needed more context to show BETTER that this was rather a cutural misunderstanding rather then just Zavala or Caiatl being a cock. The HELM in game could do a better job of pointing out these dialouges too.
For that matter, Zavala and the rest of the Vanguard needs to react more to this stuff. Amanda, Crow, Osiris, and (for other more negative reasons) Saladin are doing a good job of that. Zavala and others are as static as ever, the leadership not asking if what we are doing is right. And of course, as always, we and our ghost are silent on the matter and just want a new gun or for Eris to make Caiatl into one.
But in regards to the character of Caiatl? This combination of casual, in game storytelling and lore based story, working together to enrich BOTH, is something Bungie needs to do more of. Cater to the guys who just wanna shoot with some cool dialogue and the lore... keep reading on reddit ➡
David Paulides is an armchair researcher who never uncovers any new evidence, he merely parses and relays information from other people. Since Paulides never uncovers any new evidence he has solved zero cases so far - a failure rate of 100 %. Despite his 0 % success rate Paulides claims the cases he presents are odd, weird and do not make any sense.
The 1987 Theresa Ann Bier case (a mentally challenged girl from an abusive home)
Russell Welch (a self-proclaimed Bigfoot expert) is widely believed to have ended the life of Theresa Ann Bier during a camping trip and he blamed Bigfoot for her disappearance. Russell Welch was 43 and Theresa Ann Bier was 16 at the time.
When Paulides talks about her case he says: "So Yosemite is about eight miles from this on their southwest side. I think that's important. ... Some of the things that I want people to remember, go to Google Earth, look up Shut Eyed Peak in that area and then zoom out and you are going to see there is a lot of lakes in that area, there is tons of granite. This is in a cluster area of missing people in Yosemite. The word 'tribal' used by Russell, that really really throws me, and not many people, unless you really understand the topic, are you ever going to understand how that word plays into this".
Earlier in the video Paulides stated: "Now Russell used some wording I have never heard, ever heard, at this time in the 1980's from somebody. Now remember I wrote a book called 'Tribal Bigfoot' because of multiple reasons that people didn't understand if you weren't around Native Americans. Russell said to the Police a tribe of Bigfoot took her, he thought. Now that to me is fascinating."
In his folklore/Bigfoot research David Paulides concluded Bigfoot are somehow related to Native Americans and that they live in tribes.
TL;DR: People in this sub want to get good by learning advanced mechanics, yet struggle with basic concepts of the game.
I'm going to attempt to explain this post in the least cocky way possible.
I've been playing RL for 5 years. In that time, I managed to get GC since season 8, and peaked at 1950 in 3s in Season 14. However, I literally have 0 clue how to do any of these moves/mechanics:
Fast kickoff/speed flip (I'll talk about this one later)
Tornado flick (is this the same as a musty??? Not sure)
I can air drag to an extent, but really nothing special. Same goes for half flips, just enough to get me by.
Literally any other advanced mechanic. If its not hitting the ball, aerialing, boost management, and rotating, then theres a 99% chance I cannot do it.
Heres the truth: Unless you are extremely good at these moves, they'll get you nowhere. I dont care that you know how to ceiling shot at diamond. Sure, its probably won you some games, and you've probably gotten some cool goals, but the truth is, the second you get to a higher rank, more people will be able to deny them. The only way youre gonna offset this is if you keep going for them (don't. Theres a really good chance you couldve done something much simpler and made a better play) and practicing them like crazy (Literally wasting time on not learning to properly play)
I can still remember years ago when air dragging from the wall was just discovered/becoming popular and everyone was so concerned with learning it. At this time, I was probably like challenger elite (old ranks.) Later, when I progressed onto rising star/shooting star, everyone was still trying to do them, but getting absolutely nowhere since they just kept getting shut down. In todays time, I couldnt do a flip reset for the life of me right now, but I can sure as hell beat someone in the air to prevent one.
I see people in this sub posting all the time "Hey guys look I just hit this crazy ______ mechanic" then you scroll through the post or their post history and learn they are champ 1 or lower.

Would prefer gaming content since that's what I'm most familiar with but other genres are fine! I want to be able to get to a lot of replies, so if your video is longer than 5 minutes, I'll most likely only watch the first 5 and critique based off of that.
I'll be rating (and explaining my ratings for) content on a few major criteria from 1-10 out of 10.
1- Very beginner/basic, needs improvement
10- On par with some of the top youtubers in the genre
I'll try to get to a good portion of replies and subscribe to those I really enjoyed :)
I mean, Titans have Cryoclasm and Hunters have Shatterdive, why don't Warlocks have any shattering ability whatsoever? Our freezing abilities are already handicapped because of how effective they were (still salty about it, but it was an understandable nerf), but with the overall Stasis nerfs, now that trying to shatter someone via melee or primary is near impossible, it makes shattering for Warlocks extremely difficult.
Additionally, because we have no shattering capabilities, we have no use for Glacier Grenades or Whisper of Shards or Chains, effectively excluding a plethora of different loadouts and playstyles.
I feel like a shattering ability would be VERY welcome in the Shadebinder toolkit. Also, I find it kind of annoying that we can't shatter friendly Stasis crystals with our Winter's Wrath shockwave, but I can see how that could quickly become broken.
