Disclaimer (This is not about lag switching or manipulation of your connection, I’m simply discussing the port forwarding side of things)
So this is something I discovered with a friend of mine back in Taken King days
When ever we disable UPnP and DMZ and pretty much anything that help with connection, we get much much better hit registration.
When ever we enable everything we get a lot of ghost bullet so our conclusion is to always turn it off
I don't understand why since almost all games benefit from port forwarding, i thought maybe because Destiny has their weird P2P hybrid servers.!
I have a 100mb down 20mb up fiber optic connection with a good ping in all other games.
Any thoughts or experiences with this?
I used to work in a call center doing reservations for a large hotel company. One man called looking to make a reservation at a property for two people.
Man: Oh, yeah, I need the handicap room. I only got one leg.
Me: Of course, sir, that's not a problem. So I have a room here, handicap accessible, one king bed, non-smoking...
Man: Oh, I need one with two beds.
Me: We do have rooms with two beds, but our handicap accessible room only has the one bed.
Man: Aw, nah! Nah! It's two guys staying. I can't share a bed with a dude! I'm not like that, come on man!
Me: Ok, should I make the reservation for the room with two beds then?
Man: Deep sigh Yeah, guess we'll have to. I guess I'll just bring my shower chair. Man, this is so inconvenient.
Edit: My point is not to mock this man for his disability. I thought this was funny because he made this wild leap that I assumed he was gay because I offered a room with one bed or that sharing a bed with another man made him gay. I shared a h... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I have dexterity issues on my right hand. I like Splatoon 2 motion controls where u only use right analog stick to turn left and right and motion control aim up and down. So basically the right analog is only use for horizontal turning and disables vertical. I tried playing fortnite with motion controls but unfortunately it doesn't control same way. Any games with similar splatoon 2 set up?
This is the last straw for me for Jax. I had low opinions of him before, but now I really hate him. This guy is literal scum.

I am disabled (wheelchair-bound) and have health issues. I was wondering if there are other people here who have health issues and how does that affects how you stock your pantry and prepare for SHTF moments. What do you stock up on that non-disabled may not think of??
3 years ago my parents acquired a gas station in the state of California. For the most part it was going smoothly, when one day a gentleman came to our gas station to use our Bitcoin machine. He entered, talked up the cashier and left. Seemed like a normal customer. Well a couple months later, we are getting sued by him because of a small step we have in front of our store, saying we made it intentionally hard for him and are discriminating against him. His lawyer and he were suing for $2 million but said they were willing to settle for $13,000. Our lawyer said that this a unfortunately a very common practice and that this would be a very hard case to beat. In the State of California, we would be in the wrong and that if we questioned his disability, we would need to prove he was not disabled, which is also very hard to do. Our landlord has already lawyered up himself and said it's our responsibility and we have to deal with it ourself.
I find it unfair, because we bought the gas s... keep reading on reddit ➡

In the early 2000s, Ferrari had an exclusive (for the top teams anyway) relationship with Bridgestone, who made faster but less durable tires than their rivals at Michelin. In 2005, a rule was enacted that outlawed tire changes-clearly putting Bridgestone at a disadvantage. As predicted, Ferrari only won a single race in 2005 (the US GP, in which all Michelin-tired cars refused to race). When the rule was dropped, Ferrari went back to building championship-contending cars, further suggesting the rule was designed to hinder them.
In 2018, the Mercedes and Ferrari were very close; the Mercedes was perhaps a bit faster at its peak, but very difficult to get within a tire window, often being described as a "diva." On the 2019 tires, the Mercedes woes were gone, and they set a record for most 1-2 finishes at the beginning of the year. The other teams were so disgusted with the new tires that a vote was held to return to the 2018 ones-enough of a majority wasn't reached as the three Me... keep reading on reddit ➡
This isn't my answer -- just an interesting response from a Ben Hogan employee in response to the question above:
I’ve been able to play with PGA Tour players many times over the years…from journeymen pros to major championship winners. I have also played with true scratch amateurs. I am not a scratch player myself, but I am considered a low handicapper, and I can say this…there is an enormous difference between a PGA Tour player and a scratch amateur. On paper, it doesn’t seem as drastic as it really is, but it’s significant. Let’s look at some statistics first.
A PGA Tour pro has a scoring average 2.25 strokes better than a scratch amateur, but Tour pros also play courses that are 3.2 strokes more difficult, so the difference is 5.45 shots, according to Peter Sanders who analyzes golf stats for a living. He wrote an interesting article last year comparing a scratch amateur to a PGA Tour pro to see how much difference there is in different areas (driving, approach shots, short... keep reading on reddit ➡
Was talking to a buddy of mine about a time when he realized halfway through a DE that his epee, while technically passing weight, only registered the hit if it hit from a very specific angle. It was his last blade because he was an idiot, so he fenced like that for the bout until he got it fixed.
Another time, a friend of mine(who’s an idiot and should’ve quit the moment he felt something was up) was fencing without being able to walk backwards because putting on weight on his back leg.
Do you guys have any funny stories about handicaps you unwillingly had to compete under? Hopefully more along the lines of “ha that’s funny” than “that was crazy dangerous and you should’ve stopped man” but you know what I mean.
Like many sports fans, I enjoyed the hell out of The Last Dance. One thing that struck me about MJ was the way he played with total confidence. It didn't seem to matter if he missed a previous shot attempt, the next one was still going up like he knew it was going in.
Obviously I'm not MJ. But something clicked for me when I was thinking about my own mentality. Too often, I stand over a golf shot hoping things don't go *wrong*. But I've hit plenty of great golf shots, so why not act like I'm going to hit a great one every time?
Anyway, I took this mentality to the range, and then to the course this past weekend. I fired an 81, shattering a personal best of 90. Then played 9 holes last night and posted a 41. I played exceptionally well by my own standards, but more importantly my attitude and confidence have been the key. I'm not getting down on myself after one errant ball. I use it as an importunity to lock in and play a great shot.
It's golf, so I'm sure this peak will be met w... keep reading on reddit ➡

I slowly went from a 19 handicap to a 15 over two years. This year I took a couple lessons over the off season and spent the 6 weeks of quarantine hitting wiffle balls indoors and taking slowmo videos to drastically change my swing (tons of hip turn, not swing with arms, and shallowing the club).
First 2 weeks of playing were encouraging with me leaving a lot on the table by hitting a good amount of OB or hazards etc and still scoring at my handicap or better. Suddenly last weekend I started shooting 5-6 over in a 9 with then a slightly worst back to round off a very good round for my standard. Then fast forward and I start putting together full 18 holes with what feels like effortless pars. Broke 80 for the first time with 13 pars and few bogies and two doubles.
Fast forward again and mid week I’ve been able to sneak out for 9 holes averaging +3. Has anyone had their game suddenly come together and became a significantly better golfer over a short period of time? I’m still trying (... keep reading on reddit ➡

I would like to know what my game might look like as I get better. For instance:
I’m a 12 handicapper. If I’m slicing my drives early in a round I can adjust my grip to keep in the fairway. I still have a few mis-hit irons per round that make me look like a beginner but I can usually recover. I flirt with scoring in the 70s but I also flirt with the 90s. I’ve learned to work with my fade. Putting is my area of most potential improvement and my game is way better if I can hit on the range before the round. Sadly I still 3 putt and I still feel like throwing money at my game helps.
Tell me what your game looks like whatever handicap you are
Wanted to know if this was a reasonable goal over a few years. Typically shoot low 90s on a good day high 90s on a bad day. Would like to get that more in the low/high 80s is this a realistic goal with lessons, a few practice sessions a week, and a round or two a week?
A single digit handicap has been a goal of mine for a while. I have been hanging around a 13 for years. Finally took a couple lessons and boom, single digit. Literally happened over night. Played 3 rounds last weekend, dropped to a 10.1. Played 18 yesterday and dropped to a 9.7. I've been chipping and putting during quarantine, which helped, but the lessons were the catalyst.
Thought it would make a fun thread to post videos of our swings and play guess the handicap.
Update: Called 311 but they said to notify my complex since it's a private property. I called them around noon and was told they would "let management know", but he's still parked there as of 5pm today. Will attempt to call tomorrow to get their towing company but I'm not holding my breath. And this guy seems as healthy as a fiddle! So healthy, that he is able to walk up to people in the parking lot and talk to them, within 6 feet. Guess COVID doesn't exist for this guy!
This guy repeatedly parks in the handicap spot even after I called him out on it. With the current situation I don't want to bother the police with something that's not urgent.
A guy I played with last week asked me to join their men's league. (Probably just because he knows he can take my money.) He told me I need to submit my handicap. I know some leagues develop handicaps during the first few weeks of play, but I'd be joining this league a little late. I use the SwingU app to get yardages and keep scores on all of my rounds, so I have a handicap there.
You think that's official enough, or do you think I'll need to do something else?
I am looking for a new driver to put into my bag to get back into the game. I am a casual golfer and I tend to have a tendency to slice my driver shots, which can make the game unenjoyable. Therefore I am looking for a driver with the most potential to reduce/eliminate slice.
I have seen a few comparisons online and have seen both the F max Offset and also the Callaway Mavrik have good write ups.
Would anyone be able to let me know if the two above would be suitable, or, point me in the direction of any other drivers that are suited to slicers?
Hello👋 I am currently located in Salt Lake City. One of my closest friends is coming next weekend and now that the parks have reopened, I want to take her down to at least one of the mighty five.
However, she is unable to do any hiking but loves to see sights from the car. She is able to get out for view points and such, but cannot walk farther than a few hundred feet and especially not on unstable terrain. I’m hoping for some recommendations for the best national park or BLM sights that would be best for us. TIA
From the looks of this round he cheats in golf as much as he cheats in football. 😂
One of the key problems with PvP is the Matthew Principle, or to put it in Runescape terms, the rich get richer SMH. Better PKers risk more gear, which makes it harder to kill them and easier to kill you. So, the only way to level the playing field is to handicap the better PKer. And the only way to handicap better PKers is to make them handicap themselves with a reward! With that in mind here's the main design mechanics to make a minigame that anybody can play and enjoy.
Minigame mechanic #1: A single elimination tournament system will be used, with 32 players needed to start the minigame.
Minigame mechanic #2: Similar to LMS, max stats and 75 defence will be the main format.
Minigame Mechanic #3: A gear selection screen will be available before the tournament, containing a wide variety of gear in all combat styles similar to what you would see in a tournament/ test world. This gear would cost points.

It's not surprising that in a such an old genre with very dedicated playerbase many new players are constantly facing matches they have no chance to win or even to learn something due the unforgiving nature of afps. But there is a thing that should directly address this inevitable huge skill gap, namely handicap. For those who never heard about it before, this is a mechanic (usually a client-side variable, but it may vary) that give voluntary disadvantage to its user in some way or another. Here are some examples:
The eponymous handicap variable in various quake engine based games, like Q3A, Xonotic, Warsow/Warfork etc. It usually directly reduces your damage by chosen percent, sometimes also increase damage received and reduce maximum stack and pickup numeric values.
In UT-based games there are usually mutator with similar properties or wacky 'fatboy' mutator (lead player model and hitbox becomes more and more 'fatter', where the opponent become more 'skinny')
I’m waiting for a car to back out of a parking spot halfway down an aisle of cars. At the very end of the row there’s a car waiting for a handicap spot. The person see’s that the spot I’m waiting for is opening and floors it into the now empty parking spot cutting me off. She stops halfway into the spot rolls down her window and whines “I’m handicapped “. I yell back “so find a fucking handicap spot!” She says “but I’ve been waiting for 10 minutes”. I give her the finger and drive off to find another spot. We walk into the store at the same time. Well, she waddles because she’s so over weight and I give her a look of disgust and carry on.
I have a complete lack of feeling in the pads of my fingers, and extremely reduced feeling in the rest of my hands thanks to a childhood trauma. I've had to compensate for the lack of haptic feedback from my tension tool with visual feedback. Security pins have been quite the adventure.
Does anyone else around here have a physical handicap? How'd you overcome it?
Has anyone had experience getting a handicap placard (US)? While I have more good days than bad now, most of us know how hard it can be to get around if we can move at all. So I was hoping to talk to one of my doctors about if I could qualify for a handicap placard even if I would only have to use it once a month on a bad day that I still have to leave the house for.
Does anyone have any advice/experience/comments on this?
I played DLS often since 2017. This year, because of the lockdown, I started playing it a lot. And there are some details in DLS 2020 annoying me. But the most annoying one is: the better my team gets, the worst are the results. I just can't understand.

After I reread, I noticed 2 things about Gods.
One is that gods can be defeated, that we learned from that mob, supposed to be strong demon's (I am being Ironic) flashbacks, as well that someone much stronger than Rigos might be able to beat God of war.
The other is that, Hardcore, who at his prime was much, much stronger than Rigos is much stronger than the combat NPC's and in combat strength alone, close to the ancient dragon, who is also close to the Gods in combat power alone.
It was also, stated that the God of War was much stronger than Zero, when she first appeared at the tournament.
So, in a combat stat only, without her Godly powers, and no mind tricks, and not forcibly logging out HCLW, (since we know that gods can do that) who would win?
Edit, since I forgot. Hardcore should be able to use nightmare, and Black status window, but would rather not, unless there is no other choice.
I’ve finished the game and got my first platinum. Great game and awesome story!I’m now starting a NG+ on Survival II, so I can enjoy the acquired skills, my crafting abilities and my arsenal!
But I also want the game to be a bit more challenging. The Survival II will get me:
- Tougher and stronger enemies: more damages to me and more bullets to kill them;
- No fast travel: forces you to go around, and what a blast it is to just stop and do stuff on the way;
- No hud or mini map: forces you to be more aware of your surroundings, which is great as I always play with my headphones on. It's much more exciting and realistic to have to look back to see if someone is approaching, rather than having a spider sense minimap.
On top of all that, I'm adding some restrictions to what I can do, so it's even more challenging:
