Update: All items and perks testing completed. Still updating based on feedback as it comes in. I'll update the text below soon.
Update: Added a tab for bonuses per skill level and attribute level
Update: Tested the non functioning (Partially or Not Working) perks/items for the 1.11 hotfix. Several changes noted in the change log. I think I'll reserve testing the whole list for more significant updates, but definitely looking out for people posting/messaging about things they found that are not working/working. Already got 1 perk not working that was before.
Hope you guys find this helpful!

In the yard of St. Mary's Catholic Church in London, Ontario Canada, 5 year old Susan Cadieux was playing with her two brothers, Michael (10) and Patrick (9). They were joined by their neighbor, Virginia (12). It was the evening of Friday, January 6th. The children were soon approached by a tall man who was unshaven and thin. He was wearing a brown overcoat and galoshes. He claimed to have an appointment with a priest at the church. Virginia fell on some ice nearby. The boys were distracted with helping her up, and Susan left with the unknown man, telling them that he was going to give her something.
The older children looked and yelled for Susan and eventually returned home. The police were called, and one of the priests made an appeal for Susan's return over local radio. Volunteers looked for her into the early morning. At approximately 10 am the next morning, her body was found in a warehouse yard of a construction site nearby. Her underclothing was torn, and her jeans she wore under a snowsuit were missing. Tears were frozen to her face. She had been sexually assaulted, and it was estimated that she had died less than 3 hours before being found.
Over the previous year, 10 other girls had been victims of sexual assault. I couldn't find any more information about these cases. Sometimes this case is linked to Lynne Harper, and one suspect was suggested in 2000 as Alexander Kalichuk. He had a criminal history of sex offenses in the 1950s and was stationed nearby. He died in 1975.
Her parents died in 1986 and 1990. Her brothers died in 1995 and 2010. No one was ever arrested.
Basically the title. All podcasts are welcome idc what genre! Would prefer if they are real, accurate subtitles but YouTube automated works too as they have gotten a bit better in recent years. I’m completely new to podcasts so give me your recommendations!
Edit: Wow! Thanks for the recommendations! Turns out more podcasts provide transcripts than I thought, so I will definitely check them out!
Heads up: I don’t care what you think of Cadbury’s chocolate. I still like it.
We did it Reddit? 🤦 🤷
Edit: thank you for the platinum!
Edit 2: to my knowledge the volunteers who grade and write questions don’t pick the pass rate or pass mark of an exam sitting. I think questions are highly variable between sittings and that’s totally ok. You can’t ask the same questions every time. The fact that they do change is exactly why I want a standardized pass rate. The exam changes massively between sittings and my hypothesis is that the distribution of roughly 500 ASAs at each upper sitting is not as variable as the exam itself. The question writers and graders should do their job and I’m thankful for their time. But at the end of that process the pass mark should be set such that some minimum/max percentage of takers pass. Realizing that the exam itself is highly variable, moreso than the preparedness of 500 students.
Edit 3: I know life is unfair. That’s not something that should prevent us from trying to improve a process. Some of the commenters here remind me of some of the most insufferable actuaries I’ve worked with. Thank you to all who offered words of support and who are open to new ideas!
If anyone from the SOA is on this subreddit (doubtful) please read this post.
Your decisions have real world consequences on real people. Every person sitting for exams is a human being with a life, goals, people they love, and limited time in which to live their life before they leave this rock forever. Your goal should not be to trap as many people as you can in this process. If you want to limit the number of incoming actuaries, decrease the pass rates on the entry level exams, not the upper exams.
Arbitrarily moving passing rates so much between exam sittings is unbelievably cruel as you are moving the bar for exam takers in a way that makes no reasonable sense.
For a profession that prides itself on statistical knowledge, it’s shameful really. There are exams bouncing around between 60% pass rates and 30% rates sitting to sitting. Each sitting of these exams has many hundreds of takers.
The distribution of preparedness and intelligence of the exam takers, could vary massively from sitting to sitting if there were say 10 or 20 people per sitting. But if there are 500+ students in each exam sitting the overall distribution between sittings is statistically impossible to be that different.
The average intelligence, time studied, and knowledge of one group of 500 actuarial students one sitting is roughly equivalent to the next 500 that come alo... keep reading on reddit ➡
Title really. It was clearly overtuned, so got nerfed, then undertuned, so is getting buffed. It hasn't taken them very long, so I'm hopeful that this is a sign that the new game build method will allow them to be more responsive to feedback. Nerfs become a lot less oppressive in a world where Bungie are able to row back on them when they overdo it (or row further if they underdo it!).
Well done Bungie (please look at warlock void mid tree though!)
I'm only testing the highest rarity tier for each item. The list of things being tested are:
Note: Cyberdecks were all compared against using the common rarity cyberdeck, while holding everything else constant (gear, quickhack rarities, cyberware, mods, player level)
EDIT: So this has been a very common ask and request: "What mods stack and what mods do not stack?"
So here is a list of mods ONLY describing if they can stack. Information about whether or not they work is in the full list below, as well as some important information about how the description could be inaccurate. Crossed out mods don't work.
Weapon Mods (Ranged)
Weapon Mods (Melee)
Complete list of perks sorted by attribute and skill tested for functionality based on the description and performance in game.
Main takeaways from this list:
Perks with critical chance are generally ignored, due to difficulty of testing.
