- This mode would have a normal mode and a hard mode.
- Hard mode would give all enemies more health or more damage, changes High-Value targetmechanics (see "What makes it unique") and would offer different rewards.
- Normal mode would be six-man match-made, while hard mode would not be.
- This mode would have endless waves, when the last person on your team dies everybody gets instantly revived, the enemies disappear, and a rewards chest spawns in the center of the room.
- The activity starts with enemies at 1050 power, and every 10 waves, there is a boss. Killing the boss raises the enemies' power level.
- Each team member has 5 revives to begin.
What makes it unique
- It's a little bit like Gambit in the sense that in any given round you can be fighting Fallen, Taken, Vex, Hive, or Scorn.
- Every round, there is a 5% of a yellow-bar enemy with a Wrathful buff spawning, and when you kill it you gain the Wrathful buff for briefly increased damage against all enemies.
- Spawn locations for groups of enemies would be randomly chosen among a large number of possible spawn points.
- Every five rounds a High-Value target would spawn in a certain area of the map, and this enemy would drop a mote.
- In Hard Mode, these enemies would spawn every four rounds instead, and they would bechampions.
- These motes could be banked at terminals around the room for different assets in the fight.
- 2 motes: Extra revive for whoever banks
- 8 motes: Extra revive for everyone
- 2 motes: Braytech security frame
- 2 motes: Three Fallen Pikes
- 5 motes: Mounted Turret (can be placed anywhere, only three can be purchased)
- 3 motes: Placeable wall (only three of these can be purchased)
- 10 motes: Drake Tank

Last year, I was driving home from work on a four lane road that had a divider in the middle. It’s dangerous to cross against the light because the speed limit is 45, but people do anyway. I saw a group of teens standing on the divider, waiting to cross my lane, but figured they were waiting for the light to change so they had the right of way before they crossed. Well, they didn’t, and one kid walked right in front of my car. I slammed on the brakes but couldn’t swerve because there were cars in the lane next to me.
He was pretty seriously injured, but survived, and from the most recent info I have he has regained full mobility but continues to deal with some cognitive issues. I blamed myself for a long time and spent several months in therapy over the guilt. But overall the accident was not at all my fault; by the laws of physics I could not have stopped in time, I was obeying all traffic laws, and he knowingly walked directly into multiple lanes of oncoming traffic against the light. Apparently he said he assumed I would stop for him. But if I hadn't hit him, a car in the lane next to me absolutely would have.
My insurance company defended me in the multiple lawsuits from his parents health insurance company and the ones his parents filed against me personally, and I was ruled not at fault every time. But unsurprisingly his parents are now seriously struggling to pay off his medical bills, and think I should be paying most or all of it. According to the GoFundMe, they have well over six figures of bills, will be losing their house, and one of the parents is out of work now. I’ve been contacted by no less than 20 people insisting that since I “hit him with my car”, I have a moral obligation to help pay.
My issue: my husband and I both lost close relatives to what’s going around, and received modest inheritances we were not expecting. So technically, we do now have the money to help (without it we wouldn’t be able to make any meaningful dent in the debt). Our plan had been to use that to pay for IVF to start a family, and potentially adoption if that's how it goes. But now, with so many friends/family members of the boy reaching out to my husband directly about the GoFundMe too, my husband says he feels “morally conflicted” using that money to, in his words “create a whole new kid when one is already in need”. He wants to give the money to the boy’s parents to help pay off their debt, and is now even talking about the “payment plan” they want me to a... keep reading on reddit ➡
Draymond only had 2 field goal attempts tonight, and hit 1 of two free throws in 27 minutes of game time. Despite that, he was absolutely pivotal for the Warriors on both sides of the floor tonight. His passing, screening and decision making made it a hell of a lot easier for Steph to get going and get the ball in his spots.
On the defensive end he only notched a steal and a block a piece, but he was all over the place on rotations and disrupting a lot of the shots down low whenever he was on the court. Anyone who watched could see how the Warriors team defense changes when he's on and off the court.
To the eyes of many he had a bad last season for being unable to raise the floor of the poor Warriors supporting cast, but he absolutely still has the ability to impact winning when he has a running mate like Curry.
We have a beautiful 5 month old son and my wife does a great job of looking after him. We've been dating 8 years and married 6.
I WFH full time and it's a real blessing - how many dads in history got the satisfaction of working *and* spending their coffee breaks and commutes with their newborns?
That said - and this is a habit my wife has always had - she will 'nickel and dime' me with small requests for favours. There can be a lot of "can you do this for me" "can you do that for me", and usually I am OK with it. For instance, my wife has never actually cleaned a room or the kitchen herself - she always leaves something for me to do, because she's tired, apparently.
Sometimes however I get a bit grumpy about it - usually when I'm already busy - and when I say no or express frustration the responses I get back are along the lines of "I was only asking for x", or "I know y's husband does x for her!". The sad thing is, if I try to draw a line in the sand, instead of just not asking for x when I'm busy, my wife will not ask me to do anything for her at all until I cave in and apologise. I am not a lazy person and I do a lot of housework, DIY and childcare.
Since I started WFH my wife has started to ask me to do favours through work time. Of course, WFH is a bit flexible and I want to support my wife and mother of my son, but at the same time I have to finish what I'm doing at work, and getting up to do little things can be jarring and sometimes I end up working later than I want to.
For instance, today at work I neogitated moving an hour so I was free to attend some virtual community midwife sessions with the rest of my family, and spent some time slacking off discussing some work a plasterer is doing for me, and my wife was running late for a doctors appointment; I volunteer to help by cleaning the mess the baby made making chocolate mud, I set up the pram while my wife dresses the baby for the outdoors. My wife then asks if I'll go out and I flat out say "No - I'm working and I have stuff to do". My wife then says that actually, all she wanted me to do was come out to help push the pram back up the hill we live on, so I quickly reconsider and grduginly say that if she *really* feels like she needs help then I want her to give me a call. Now, my issue with this is I think my wife *can* push the pram up the hill - quite easily - I think she just doesn't want to. She never rang me and seems to have got five minutes up the hill fine?
