And when I say unbelievable I literally mean it.
You supposedly become a hot shot merc, driving nice cars, wearing nice clothes, yet you still live in a shit hole!?
It breaks immersion because it’s so unrealistic. I know they said they wanted the story to take place at one apartment but ffs at least add in different apartments once you beat the game.
Even this trailer talks about getting a big house... https://youtu.be/6a8f1TbYb2w
Without any way of tracking people, or proving who was who, how would people in a town I had never been to, 100 miles away, ever know I was untouchable unless I told them? Why couldn't I just say I'm not an untouchable, what would any of the townsfolk do to verify my claims? Why didn't any untouchables in Indian history do this? Or, did they?
Slightly misleading title, but this is something I have to post.
By no means am I high ranking, at silver 3/gold 1, however in many of my ranked games, and also in unrated, I have found that bottom fraggers on the team get angry at themselves, and apologize frequently for things they could not control. For example, in the latest ranked game I played, Reyna was having one of "those" days, where shots don't connect, bad timing, etc. This happens to everyone, and although they were indeed not having a great game, they also had a good attitude and even gave up a "pep talk" at halftime.
This is what my friends and I try to encourage from the people that aren't always doing the best, we hype them up, have fun, and play like we have already been friends with that person and we are doing a friendly scrim. In almost every single one of these cases, we have won the game, sometimes with the person who was 3/10 first half leading us at the end of the game.
All I want to explain is, if you have someone on your team who is angry, perhaps flaming you or your teammates, maybe just being sad that they cannot help the team, have fun with them, and use the internet as a tool to bring people from across the globe together, even for one match.
edit Thank you all SO much for your kind words and love, it really does mean the world to me :)
Even tho we live only a city and roughly 30 minutes apart, me and my girlfriend were having very hard times since the pandemic started because while everyone around her continued to live like nothing was happening, both my mom and my aunt are in all C19 risk groups, my aunt even not having antibodies anymore, so if the virus got in our home, they would both not survive, so everyone here is being EXTREMELY restrict about it.30 minutes apart, and I've only seen my girlfriend 4 times since March. That, together with the fact that she doesn't have any real friends that are actually care about her and are not just talking to her because THEY'RE feeling sad, made her change so much in the past months. She wasn't managing to deal with everything while being away from me while everyone else around here were seeing their significant others like they always did.
After nearly breaking up, we ended up buying a bunch of games that we could play together online.Then around the end of October she started lurking on various twitch streams from a community I'm part of. She ended up buying a webcam and some things to start streaming herself. Even tho she's shy, everyone was so supportive that she even got affiliate in just a week and made a small community through November / December.
While she managed to play some games with some viewers, many of them either had a weak PC or no PC at all, which limited her options with those viewers.
Enter Stardew Valley. Everyone could run it, even on their phones. The only problem we had was the player limit (which I got around because PRAISE MODS JESUS CHRIST I LOVE THIS COMMUNITY).Yesterday we had 5 people playing together with around 18 watching (It was late so not many people wanted to play, but that's ok)
After a while I noticed she was oddly quiet. I thought it was because of how many people were there and that she was a little nervous. After she ended her stream and everyone in voice chat left, I asked if she was ok. Her answer:"It's just... 2 months ago I was in a bad place with so many wrong thoughts in my head, with no one but you to talk and play things. Today we had people coming here and asking to play. New people and people that were supporting me since I started streaming, people that cared about me. I... I'm just so glad you convinced me to play and stream this game. I never had anyone asking to play anything with me, it's super weird so I didn't know how to react and got too quiet.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Since solving poverty is a standard political goal, I’m just curious to hear a historical perspective on the issue — has poverty ever been “solved” in any large civilization? Supposing no, which civilizations managed to offer the highest quality of life across all classes, including the poor?
UPDATE: Thanks for all of the thoughtful answers and information, this really blew up more than I expected! It's fun to see all of the perspectives on this, and I'm still reading through all of the responses. I appreciate the awards too, they are my first!
