I see a lot of "omg Harvest best ever" posts, which are out of touch to say the least since league has ridiculously poor retention numbers and keeps shedding players every day.
What people do like, in my opinion, are the crafting options, not the shell they come in which is very poor and cumbersome. And since game suffers greatly from bloated content feature creep, the last thing we need is yet another league mechanic going core.
My opinion is we need to take some of the crafting options from Harvest, and integrate them while cutting away all the fat that comes with the Harvest mechanic as a whole. Drop the seeds and the grow mechanic completely. Old crafting mechanics keep getting nerfed while still being kept in the game while additional new much more powerful ones get added, this leads to not only the game becoming bloated, but it makes it less and less accessible to new players who are overwhelmed at the endless stream of currencies/consumables/mechanics thrown at them.
I’m not even joking. I’ll pay for the voice line.
I know you can hear this already. You know you want it to happen.
Is it not at all, maybe a little, or a significant increase?
DE just announced that they are removing Xoris as a stat stick for any frame that relies on the melee combo counter at all. Their reasoning is that it became "Xoris or you're doing it wrong." That could not be farther from the truth. For frames that use a stat stick, you accepted you were going to do less damage in exchange for not managing combo. Isn't that the exact choice that DE claims they want us to have with the modding system? It also opened alternate modding possibilities. Let's consider Atlas. I probably wouldn't go for crit on a "standard" Atlas stat stick. However with the right Xoris build I could get Blood Rush, Glad set and with Arcane Avenger I could get to 100% crit. That let crit be a realistic option for Landslide when it really wasn't before.
By nerfing Xoris you are removing choices from the player, not freeing us from some oppressive Xoris meta.
To top it off, none of the frames that mattered in that list will be affected in a meaningful way. Vet Khora playe... keep reading on reddit ➡
Could be something as simple as turning someone heel who didn't work as a babyface, for example. For me, I think their biggest improvement has been deciding to incorporate squash matches. Not every match needs to be a 20+ minute epic, and these provide a good balance. Not only that, but the same jobbers showing up every week makes them more interesting as you see their number of losses increase.
As a teenager or young adult it's common to feel like your mental health issues won't get better, but they almost certainly will. Source and Source 2 for anyone who needs a reminder that it will get better!
Edit: to address many of the comments: of course not ALL disorders vanish on their own with age alone. I am not suggesting that getting older alone will cure your mental health issues. But many do get better, even if they don’t go away completely, and happiness in general tends to improve with age. If you’re curious about certain specific conditions I encourage you to do some research and see if these things are applicable and how to get help!
We're getting a LOT of posts about the recent discoveries coming in updates. This is NOT a megathread for the version (that happens when > 5% of folks actually receive the update), but this is simply a centralized post to discuss what we're learning about as it's not in many cars yet, and to reduce reposts.
What we've learned....
The best article we've found summarizing what's upcoming.

I'm making this post against my better judgement, knowing the current sentiment around CBMM. But I feel like this needs to be said, especially here.
CBMM can help you improve.
#The Case for CBMM
I'm going to do my best to make my arguments from an objective improvement perspective, as that's what this place is about. Too much of the conversation so far has been needlessly hostile and polarised, with the overwhelming majority of commenters railing against content creators and streamers for "ruining the game". Some have gone a step further and made melodramatic statements like "I'm quitting PvP, this game is ruined. Sweats ruin everything".
I refuse to add to this sort of discourse with a similarly incendiary rebuttal. I'd like to bring calm and reason to the storm and, hopefully, in the process of doing so entice a few of you who have pissed on the fire to reconsider your position. In all likelihood thou... keep reading on reddit ➡
I absolutely LOVE Witherhoard, and I spent the entire first week grinding out the catalyst. I already have close to 700 kills on it, most of those being boss kills. 100 Handling and Auto Loading Holster perfectly compliment its playstyle of bring it out for one shot then put it away.
Trinity Ghoul's catalyst puts pretty much every other method of AOE add clear to shame. The fact it can easily keep Lightning Rod up allows for some crazy shenanigans in PVE.
Whoever designed these catalysts deserves a raise. Keep doing more like this.
Edit: Some are asking how I farmed the quest for the Witherhoard catalyst.
Filthy Lucre I just got from playing Crucible. Stick to 6’s or rumble since those matches are fast.
GL multikills you’ll get naturally as you play PVE. Just use Witherhoard or Mountaintop.
GL Gaurdian kills were easy with Mountaintop. Play Control or Momentum Control when it’s around.
Edit 2: For the actual Witherhoard catalyst, you’ll just need kills with the gun. Sla... keep reading on reddit ➡

I AM NOT ARGUING AGAINST ANY CHANGES, I AM ASKING PEOPLE TO STOP CALLING THESE CHANGES AND OTHER SIMILAR ONES 'QOL IMPROVEMENTS'. IT IS A MISREPRESENTATION, THEY ARE MAJOR MECHANICAL CHANGES.
Ever since the china race I feel like there has been an uptick in people asking for what they call 'QOL changes', but they don't seem to understand that what they're actually asking for is a huge mechanical change to the base game.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to present an argument for having to pick up 700 'Splinters of RSI' one by one, but people don't seem to understand what the changes they're asking for actually mean. This is not to say that everybody asking for such changes does not understand.
My point here is that if you're asking for loot pets, or automatic stash sorting, or free respecs up to lvl 70, this is not just QOL. These are major mechanica... keep reading on reddit ➡
Today Apollo 1.8.2 is available, it builds on 1.8 (and 1.8.1) with a bunch of improvements as well as bug fixes based on feedback received. Thank you so much for all the feedback, there was a ton of great insight on how to improve some features which I took to heart, as well as some terrific insight into bugs that were introduced and how to reproduce them, which helped me a ton in being able to fix them (as well as some annoying bugs from outside 1.8). I will admit I did let a few too many bugs through in this update, so I appreciate you bearing with me as I fixed them and I'll be a little more careful going forward.
Without further ado, here's a brief list of what's contained in this update. There's a bunch of little small edge case behaviors that were fixed that would warrant an essay if listed out, but here are the main things that you should be able to readily notice were improved/fixed. But overall everything should be a bit snappier. :)
So many people are picking up hobbies, projects, and generally interesting things during quarantine and I’m not here to shit on them. But fuck you when you ask me what else I’ve been doing other than working (I was fortunate enough to keep my job). Having a job right now is stressful enough especially when a coworker you’ve had contact with tests positive. “But have you like started a home project or something?” No! Good for you if you have that motivation but you know what I’ve been doing? I’ve been getting through one day at a time! Quarantine isn’t a fun artsy getaway, the world is fucking shit right now and excuse me if I get too fucking depressed to “discover myself” though projects. No, I don’t have any new hobbies, I only now have time and the occasional motivation to actually enjoy my preexisting hobbies. If you ask me what new things I’ve been doing, then say “oh really?” when I say nothing, well then FUCK YOU. Simply surviving in this time is fucking valid. Quarantine shouldn... keep reading on reddit ➡
Since My Last Post:
I have tested and uncovered the pattern of how improvements work outside the 3 tile workable range of cities; the outer zone. I uncovered 2 main points of interest for players.
I had noticed that improvements when placed outside the workable range of a city did not always give their full stated benefits. Obviously yields are never gained if they can’t be worked, but improvements can also provide housing, amenities, tourism and power which don’t require working to be provided. I had also previously noted that the city yields of tourism output didn’t always add up to the sum total of all tourism producing tiles or the empire tourism amounts.
Amenities and power granted by improvements always work, regardless of placement.
Tourism improvements: The pattern I have noticed with tourism is that only National Parks give tourism if they are built in the outer zone.
When hovering over a tourism improvement in the tourism lens, improvements show a “Generating” tourism amount and a “Lifet... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was shot June of last year by a stray bullet from a gang fight during a parade. I have been diagnosed with PTSD, depression and anxiety. I am in therapy and on medication.
When I first got out of the hospital I couldn't drive, couldn't go into stores, had panic attacks if I heard sirens or fireworks.
For the most part I have these things under control. However, I am extremely depressed as this has greatly impacted my career, amongst other things.
My boyfriend says it's been a year, get over it, it's in my mind. I need to cook more, clean more, get out more, and have sex more.
To the point he's mentally and emotionally abusive about it. Screams at me that I'm useless amongst other things.
Some days I can't even shower. He's also incredibly messy and uses the floor as his garbage. My mom stayed with us for a few months after to help me and he says I need to be like her and follow him and clean up after him as I'm not back to work yet. My psychiatrist and therapist both say I'... keep reading on reddit ➡

School is almost a paradox, really. It forces people into a fixed mindset by teaching students that failing once or twice means that you're probably just not good at something and should be ashamed. I adopted a growth mindset and it's helped me out in life tremendously. Let's be honest, anything passed basic algebra isn't used in the real world unless you go into certain careers. Things like nutrition, medicine, self defense, psychology, hygiene, money management, philosophy, knowing one's federal and local laws, knowing how to file one's taxes, and knowing our human rights would actually help better everyone's lives. Yet almost none of it is taught in schools.
A small rollout has occured for the first "public" release of some much-anticipated updates including No-Confirmation Green Light Control (FSD), Backup Camera Improvements, and far more. This is seemingly one of the most feature-packed updates we've gotten so far this year. You can view the full release notes here.
Please note, many of these features are only for specific models or regions.
Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control (Beta)
The Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control feature no longer requires explicit driver confirmation of pushing down the gear selector to continue straight through an intersection for green traffic lights when there is a lead vehicle ahead of you and Autopilot is confident that you are not in a turn-only lane. The stop line in the driving visualization will now turn green to indicate that the car will continue through an intersection.

Finally some good news from IOTA, been holding my bag since 2017 @@ . I still remember this sub was quite hostile toward this project, wonder how is it now?
The new leaked boss battle-which is still a work in progress build-looked really awsome. The side-boss battle seems fun, the animation isn't too arcade-like aside from dodge. Sprint seems to be back. Glad they fixed the cam distance. More importantly the combat seems to have impact as a form of unlockable skill. Also the world is really beautiful and the ambient music is just too perfect.
I really enjoyed the myths stuff in the last two games. Glad it's back again and hope they continue it in future. From a gameplay perspective there's no loss. No level this time around-which is really good. Everything is based on skills which allows for better progress and less annoyance.
All in all it looks huge improvement on Odyssey. The final build will probably be more polished in terms of animations, so really excited for Ubisoft Forward this Sunday.
I believe I am speaking for most if not all the gamers that play Valorant regarding this matter.
When you burst with a rifle (any rifle) bulldog/phantom/vandal (without right first, clicking just shoot 2-3 bullets) , your recoil simply does not reset.
You need to literally wait a whole second in order for the gun to have its recoil reset so you can control it.
I believe that Valorant is unique regarding this because I don't know any other FPS games that the guns work that way (or that the recoil takes as long to reset).But honestly I don't believe it's a good thing because it makes the shooting less fun in my opinion.
There are of course alot of things to improve and fix,but I really believe that if the time you have to wait in order for the gun to reset it recoil will be reduced (even not removed), the game will be way more enjoyable.
BTW if we are talking about guns, do you think that sheriff should kill in a 1 shot headshot from any distance?
