Personally, I miss the challenge of open world difficulty. If we could have like a Heroic or Master difficulty open world, Public events, patrols and open world bosses would make things fun for planets. Introducing certain weapons and armor to different planets would make them relevant again (looking at you Nessus).
Edit: It's great to see the idea is very receptive. Let's keep up the traction! Hopefully the community mangers will see it. But please, only award free stuff. Please spend your money on something worth it.
Edit 2: Good Lord, I did not expect this to blow up this much. Wow! They can't ignore this much interest, can they?
As someone who spends most of their time in plat, going up and down between plat 1-4 for the past few years, two things always made playing ranked very frustrating. One was sitting at 0 lp worried when you were going to demote. Two was getting to 100 lp and having to play a best of 3 to promote. I'm honestly not even upset when I drop below 0 lp and derank, because there's no anxiety tied to it. I know exactly when I will drop a rank and I know I can easily jump back up smoothly.
I don't think I'm alone in saying I think Riot should really consider looking at some of the old core features of the games similar to inter-divisional promos and think about how they impact the player experience. This is something they took years to do, but I'm willing to bet in the near future we're going to wonder how we put up with dealing with these promotional series so often in the first place.
I was talking some friends and we got into the argument of which reigning UFC champion could beat the greatest fighter to ever do it in their division; it started when I stated that Figgy would lose to prime Demetrius Johnson. For now I'm only going over the men's divisions. Open to anyone disagreeing with these picks:
Figgy vs DJ @125 lbs
I think DJ takes this. He's a stronger wrestler than Moreno, and I think he would have a shot at taking Figgy down while evading the big punches.
Petyr Yan vs Dominick Cruz @ 135lbs
I honestly think Yan could have trouble with finding Cruz's chin at the start of the fight, seeing as how Aldo had success with head movement in the early going. However, yan's pressure and more technical boxing leads me to believe Cruz would get finished late in the fight.
Volkanovski vs Jose Aldo @ 145 lbs
Volk outworks any version of Aldo, sorry guys. And I'm a huge Aldo fan
Khabib vs Khabib @ 155 lbs
I don't know if Khabib would be able to take down and control Khabib due to Khabib's sambo background. Hard to say
Kamaru Usman vs Georges St Pierre @ 170 lbs
Ok, an interesting one. St Pierre has had trouble with southpaws who smother his jab and can stop his takedown. However, while Hendricks and Kamaru have similar wrestling accomplishments, Hendricks is the better inside boxer and had a much more active lead hand than Usman has. That said, Usman is more physical than Hendricks. Ultimately, I see a prime GSP and Usman getting into a striking battle as both have excellent tdd. GSP wins a boring decision, but is not impressed with his own performance.
Israel Adesanya vs Anderson Silva @ 185 lbs
This already sort of happened, and while people here on reddit say Adesanya wasn't trying because Silva is his hero I personally saw Israel throw several full power headkicks that got dodged. Prime Silva vs Adesanya goes down as a sort of boring but occasionally flashy striking match that Silva wins by controversial decision, idk
Jan vs Jon Jones
Jan is at his core a blitzing kickboxer who usually comes in on straight lines. Jones ate up most of the guys who fought that way against him: Rampage, Machida, Vitor. Prime Jon Jones kicks the shit out of him and maybe takes him down and submits him.
Stipe vs Fedor
Maybe my dream fight. This would be a crazy banger. I am not convinced that Stipe would not get knocked out after a clinch exchange -- Fedor would throw nasty hooks after exiting the clinch like DC and we've seen what that... keep reading on reddit ➡

As a European, it is always weird for me to hear that from your politicians as in here, ethnic statistics are forbidden and it would seem out of place if someone adresses me as yellow jew and not just a citizen of my country.
The NFC East currently has a record of 19-32-1 (.375), which is bad.
In 2008, the NFC West had a record of 22-42-0 (.344), which is worse. In fact, that is the worst combined record for any division since the 1970 merger.
With three divisional matchups and six extradivisional games remaining for the NFC East this season, it is no longer mathematically possible for them to outsuck the 2008 NFC West. If the three divisional games result in three wins and three losses*, and if they lose all six of their remaining out-of-division games (a result which is by no means outside the realm of possibility), then they will finish at 22-41-1 for a record of .352. This is a half-game better than the 2008 NFC West, and the tipping point would end up being the tie between the Eagles and Bengals.
While the 2008 NFC West will remain the worst overall division since the merger, they did give us that year's NFC champions -- the Arizona Cardinals, who finished 9-7. In the NFC Championship game, they defeated the Eagles, who finished 9-6-1. This was a half-game better than the Cards, and the tipping point was -- what else -- a tie between the Eagles and Bengals.
^(*this is a safe assumption since divisional games, whether they end in ties or not, don't have any mathematical impact on that division's overall win-percentage.)
It is no secret that this sub—and Reddit in general—have a strong pro-Liberal/NDP slant. But over the past few years I have watched this forum devolve from a place for relatively civil and balanced discussion, to a place full of division, cartoonish insults, and political mono-culture. I would estimate that about half the posts that get upvoted on this sub are low-effort anti-UCP vitriol. Disagreements over politics are an important and even necessary part of the democratic process. But discussion cannot happen when any dissenting voices are shunned, and when any disagreements silenced and downvoted.
Remember that behind every conservative voice is a story and a life experience that is just as real as your own. No one forms their opinions in a vacuum, and no one changes their opinions by being ostracized, insulted and shamed. If you see people doing something you don’t like, or with opinions you disagree with, instead of rushing to Reddit to lampoon them, try having a discussion. In some sense Reddit as a platform incentivizes this division by rewarding people for one-sided political discussion. If your sole opinion of Alberta politics was formed from reading Reddit, you would be forgiven for thinking that all conservatives are monstrous criminals who hate the environment and want to see Alberta burn. In reality they are regular people just trying to live their lives in the best way they know how. They are our friends, our neighbors, and our community, and we can’t have a functional society if we treat them all like villains.
Outreach over ostracization. Unity starts with U.
That’s all I have to say. Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and here’s hoping for a better 2021.
