In lieu of a suitable re-balance of the DD vs CV interaction, my clan mates and I have decided to take matters into our own hands. We have been patient, hoping that the developers of our beloved game would eventually relent, providing the DD with a modicum of counter-play. One and a half years have passed with little progress on this front. WOWS was intended to be a ROCK vs PAPER vs SCISSORS game. The new iteration of carriers has no counter, and damage mitigation is nearly impossible when facing rockets. As such, carrier players are able to dominate battles with impunity; attacking from 30 km away with zero risk to their own ship. This often grants carrier players a feeling of omnipotence. Here is my attempt to fight for destroyer's rights to play WOWS again.
My clan-mates and I decided to create a 3 man DD div designed to directly counter the carrier class. We settled on a 2xKidd + Akizuki division. The Kidds provide superior AA, smoke and heals, allowing them to quickly el... keep reading on reddit ➡
> Video of TV host and actor Nick Cannon spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories and praising virulent antisemite Louis Farrakhan has resurfaced in recent days. > > Cannon — who currently hosts “The Masked Singer” on Fox and previously hosted “America’s Got Talent” on NBC — spoke with Richard Griffin, aka Professor Griff, on a recent episode of “Cannon’s Class,” the TV host’s YouTube talk show. Cannon appears to have filmed the video last year, and reposted it to his channel a few weeks ago — where it gained renewed attention over the weekend. > > Griffin was a member of the hip hop group Public Enemy until the late 1980s, when he was ousted over antisemitic remarks he made in a series of interviews. In the reposted video with Cannon, the TV host praised Griffin for having “the most substanc... keep reading on reddit ➡
No idea how Bungie managed to follow up a public event I absolutely hated with a public event I absolutely love. Launching those satellites was at worst unfun and at its best a chore. I got to a certain point last season that if I loaded into a patrol zone with the Seraph Towers active I'd drive around instead of thru. I had that much distain for them.
But now I go out of my way to help others play contact. It's fast paced, it's enjoyable, has enjoyable dialogue before, during, and after.
I was so disappointed when I heard this season would have another public event and I'm glad to be proven entirely wrong. I'll actually miss contact when it's gone. Good job Bungie.
That would be a massive boner kill. However, considering year 6’s expansion, “lightfall”, has a picture of a pyramid on it, I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t get a real look at the darkness until then. You know they’re gonna drag the story out as long as possible.
I can't believe how many people I talked to yesterday in lobbies where they didn't understand how damage is applied in gameplay. Some veteran players couldn't believe it(down right refused) and I had to literally drag them into a custom lobby to prove the point. New players at least never played this game, but veteran OG " Well I was a level 50 in lone wolves so I know the game" also didn't believe me.
It doesn't matter how many times you hit someone in the head with the Battle Rifle(BR). You can hit them with 4 full bursts to the head to kill them, or you can hit them with 3 full bursts to their chest(hell shoot them in the toe for all I care), and 1 full burst to the head to kill them. There is no head shot multiplier like in most FPS games UNTIL the shields are popped(depleted).
So, why is this important? It's important because the spread of the BR is designed to have random deviations within the burst. Your first bull... keep reading on reddit ➡
EDIT: Everyone knows Napoleon wasn't actually short. You're not smart for pointing it out.
Barrier mods are almost neccessary for a solo flawless completion of a dungeon, which is likely to have the fallen as the main enemy this expansion. Same goes with armaments. Same goes for the new raid if you are going to try it within the first several days after it dropping.
The mods only drop from the sparrow encounter after getting all the buttons and opening the secret chest. You cannot grind this chest over and over as it is a secret chest, so you have a maximum of 3 tries per account to get mods.
Our guardian just straight up folds the chair and smacks some poor thrall straight to orbit.
I’d say brainsuckers fuck these guys and especially the ones in the Upper Cathedral Ward
Just had a game where the enemy saw my laner was afk and went into the base and died in XP range! Saw this a year ago. Pretty amazed it's still around! Feelsgoodman
Guy even threw up the gg : ^) in chat afterward. pretty stand up guy if you ask me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
funny thing is, i said nice try in chat, thinking it had to be patched. should have known
On May 5th 2020, officer Frank Hernandez assaulted a homeless latino man in Boyle Heights for saying offensive things to him. The homeless man allowed himself to get arrested and the police officer proceeded to beat him with no jurisdiction. WHERES THE OUTRAGE FOR THAT! Hispanic elderly workers were working to sell facemasks during the pandemic and they were assaulted by young African american males by slapping the workers and throwing eggs at them. WHERES THE GOD DAMN OUTRAGE FOR THAT! I'm sick and tired of the media catering to one specific group of people when they know this is an on going trend that happens to not only african Americans. David Dorn who was defending a pawn shop from looters (70 yr old african american officer) was killed in cold blood 2 days ago. WHY ARENT WE PROTESTING JUSTICE FOR HIS LIFE! I'll tell you why, because it doesnt fit into modern day narrative where people can see the logic. This isnt about race anymore, it's about us the people against the government... keep reading on reddit ➡
This change would improve melee fights a lot for Warlocks, and they need that.
Edit for those unclear with what I meant: When close (like regular melee close) to an enemy the long range charged melees of Titans and Hunters will not trigger and a regular meele will happen. But for Warlocks, the charged melees are consumed regardless of the distance.
OR make the teammate's Reyna's flashes a different color? It is quite hard to mentally program the reaction to shoot the flash when it is impossible to distinguish a team flash vs enemy flash.
There are many times when I have done considerable damage or killed a legendary enemy and, either by how far their body is knocked back, how concealed in vegetation, water, or poor lighting they are, or simply just by being distracted with other enemies or tasks, these bodies and their legendary loot may be unrecoverable. This is especially the case for legendary scorchbeasts that are knocked back considerably when killed in the sky (though their size makes them easier to find), legendary robots such as the sheepsquatch imposter whose body is ragdolled somewhere unpredictable once it detonates upon being killed, or smaller enemies such as cave crickets whose bodies could easily be hidden among the tall grass and dismal lighting.
Our changes of getting great legendary loot are poor at best, so losing the opportunity to retrieve the loot (or scrip from the loot) worsens are already dismal chances. Bethesda should incorporate some way of making the corpses of legendary enemies we have k... keep reading on reddit ➡
A decade ago, I was working customer service for a major cell phone company in the US.
We'd often get cancellation requests for accounts, either in writing or by calling in.
However, any tier of regular customer service couldn't cancel accounts, only the "retention" department could do so. We'd have to transfer call-in customers to them, and if they wrote in we'd have to call them, and then transfer them to "retention" (the terms of service were written such that you MUST call in to cancel, written requests weren't allowed).
(Also, technically the Legal department and Executive Escalations could cancel accounts but you did NOT want to get involved with anything they were touching)
In any case, "retention" was the customers enemy. They were graded on one metric, and one metric alone. . .the ratio of requests they get to actual cancellations that happen. To that end, that would engage in some very unethical (and probably illegal) conduct to ensure nobody quit. If you wanted to st... keep reading on reddit ➡
Great example is in Kingdom manga where Shin takes on a big group of assassins by himself and gives time for Kyoukai to recover who then proceeds to roflstomp them and faint from exhaustion.
Do you have any great examples of this trope I could also see?
I have another example, though sadly can't recall where it's from where the powerful ally responds with 'This is plenty' and then casually wins.
