Just wanted to say that I've loved reading all of the feedback so far in the main Equipment Rebalance thread but there are lots of smaller points which get drowned out amongst the discussion around the Toxic Blowpipe, the Bow of Faerdhinen and the Amethyst Darts.
To ensure that we address everything when we discuss the feedback next week I'd love it if you guys could give some feedback on this thread regarding some of the following other changes!
Link to the blog here: https://secure.runescape.com/m=news/equipment-rebalance-ranged-meta-proposal?oldschool=1
I posted the same thing on twitter too, you can leave feedback on either one! https://twitter.com/JagexHusky/status/1399074874400907269/photo/1
I likely won't reply to much of this tonight, it's still very much the weekend, but I'll reply to some when I'm available and you can be absolutely sure I'll read everything (just like I have in the other thread)!
Edit: By the way, these are all things already mentioned in the blog! These aren't new points or additional information, for more information please check it out, we cover a lot in there
Im 24, and i live in a house that i got when my grandfather died. He was a metalworker, he taught me how to make various stuff. My sister lived in an apartment in the same town, but she was low on money and moved to me. She got a job at a gardening shop that was selling tools (important for later). I made hatchets in the shed close to my house, the shed was decently big and it had the metalworking tools.
One time, i was chilling when i heard loud metal clunks, I went to check the shed, and i saw my sister bashing various machines with a hammer.
Me: what the f*** are you doing? sis: Im destroying your machines me: why sis: you should buy hatchets at the store because i work there me: i make my own hatchets because its way cheaper
My memory is a bit fuzzy, and none of the machines were broken, but i told her to get out of the house by tommorow.
My family was saying that I didnt do the right thing, but the machines are not cheap
So tell me nice people of Reddit, AITA?
Not super survivally anymore, really. "Hardcore" in that the TTK is 0, sure, but really gear is infinitely replaceable and dying is mostly a minor inconvenience in that I have to reset my kits and sit through load screens, not something to actually care about.
Honestly, I like the potential the flea market provides for moving barter goods where they need to go, but I miss pre-flea Tarkov, where my kits were mostly "what I got" scrapped together from found loot and successful scav runs, with some trader equipment scattered in as I could afford it and it slowly became available.
I expect this to be downvoted, since most of the loud kids here are here for the "hardcore call of duty" experience, but I have really liked this game and needed to get it off my chest. I hope it's just a roadbump in the process of finishing the game; they call it a beta but it's really a public alpha.
Eyes in the sky with real time footage is a game changer.
Especially in an urban setting where you do not know if there are gangs or people you want to avoid even 1 city block away a drone takes away this disadvantage.
I purchased the DJi Mavic mini 2 and it is so quite that from 50 meters or higher you cannot even hear it and the 4k camera with digital zoom gives amazing detail over a wide area.
If you have the budget for it I would recommend getting one. I had the pro but it was big and very noisey. The mini 2 is light portable and has 30 minute run time with a 10km range. Its literally insane
A pic I took just now from the drone. The clarity is really good.
I feel its just a bad idea to have to buy (or good luck) find one just to open the yellow barriers. Just not enough use for it because I feel the basic blade is powerful enough for most enemies.
I got my first real IT job awhile back in 2013. It was a general support desk, brand new position that they really hadn't figured out yet. Anywhere from doing server backups to following up on maintenance requests to managing accounts. I had to keep track of like six different passwords for each network I was on but it was fun, and I felt important since I was the only one in the role at the time.
I got a call from a lady we'll call Jessica. Jessica was a longtime employee located on the same site, just in a different area. Her computer wouldn't boot up and she complained that I needed to come fix it ASAP as she was trying to work on an important project. No problem, I was used to people being annoyed and thinking that if they yelled or complained at IT things would get done faster. I walked out to her desk which was about 10 minutes away from our office. Grabbed the computer while she huffed and puffed and kept getting no boot device found. I also heard a faint clicking when I turned on the computer.
Pulled it out from under her desk and could tell the HDD was damaged. It happens just not very often, but I don't have spare HDD's so I'd have to get her a new computer while I ordered one. I apologized and explained the issue, which only made her angrier. Shrugged it off and took the computer back to our office to fill out the paperwork. Brought her a spare computer after I imaged it and plugged it up. Luckily all of her data was backed up to her shared drive. Later I noticed that the casing had a small dent in it, but the area was under funded and sometimes we used recycled parts.
A few weeks later I come back around to her area and am doing an inventory check on everything when I hear an odd noise. I poke my head into her cubical and she's sitting there, idly kicking the computer with her leg crossed. I instantly realize this is where the dent in the last computer came from. I ask her what she was doing kicking the computer and she said it was in her way and she always does this and to mind my own business. Grab her supervisor who ended up punishing her for damaging government equipment. Needless to say I never saw her again.
A not-so-relevant rant for r/sysadmin I think, can anyone recommended a subreddit for more onsite IT guy discussion?
So today a user came to me with a big bunch of bubble wrap and told me she found this under her desk. I told her to "please unwrap it" and she said "if I unwrapped it it will be super messy".
I was in a meeting so I just told her to leave it here. When I am done with the meeting I unwrapped it.
It was a keyboard covered in dust with dust bunnies flying everywhere the moment I unwrapped it. I threw the whole thing into the trashcan. She went out of her way to find bubble wrap to wrap it all up but can't bother find a paper towel to clean it up a slightest bit.
There was another time when they "found" an old Cisco phone under their desk just before a new guy was onboard and "returned" it to me for me to "configure".
Have you ran into similar situation where IT seem to also include cleaning?
