Every time I get back into esports or see highlight clips of league i think "wow damn, this shit looks so much fun I gotta go rank up in league!" and then I play a ranked game and it's such a shit show that I just drop it for a few days and then repeat the process over again. Anyone else feel this way?
So I recently came across the concept of Aphantasia and that others can actually form complete pictures from the descriptions given in books. This is probably a reason why I've usually preferred more visual mediums like video games, tv shows and movies.
For me, reading books tends to be a continuation of one of those mediums, rather than the launching point of interest. For instance, I'm currently reading the Witcher series after playing the games and seeing the Netflix show.
So for those with the ability to visualize, does it just happen as you quickly as you read? Or does it happen more after the fact as you recall characters and events?
Is this why people seem to get so upset because they don't like the look of actors that have been cast in certain roles? I've always felt its far more important to get the tone of the character than their appearance.
>It’s easy for a guy like Kyrie [Irving] to say that he’ll give everything back [for social reform], but would he really give everything back? It’s easy for Dwight Howard to say that we don’t need to play when he’s in Atlanta in his $20 million mansion. But there are other guys on the rosters who need this money to provide for whoever they’re taking care of and things like that. It’s easy for the superstars in the league to say this and how they feel about this and that. But it means a lot more when it comes from the role players and the guys that [aren’t stars]. There are so many different perspectives because there are so many different levels in the NBA. Like I said, it’s so easy for the superstars to say, “Let’s just not play,” and they’re good. But some guys can’t just do that. There are lives on the line and, like I said, generational wealth on the line. These are the hits that we’re going to take if we don’t play.

Does anyone else spend more time getting ready to play than they do actually playing the game? Here's how my typical D2 session goes.
Wait for game to load and log in
Go to Tower
Grab bounties from various vendors
Switch weapons based on bounties and game mode
Play a game mode until bounties and weekly goal completed
Get kicked with various errors now and then

I'm 26, f and, living with my husband also 26, m. We've been living in our current starter house for a little over a year at this point. The neighbors across the street have four kids under ten years.
For reference, my neighbor's front yard is taken up mostly by a rather large driveway on a steep incline. The lot their house is on is also much narrower than the one my husband and I's house is on. My house also has a small pool that came with the house in the back yard.
A couple weeks ago my husband and I went hiking over the weekend. When we got home Sunday, I saw the neighbors kids playing in my yard. They were riding their bikes in the driveway and seemed like they'd been playing in the yard since some toys were there. I told them to leave and brought the toys in the yard to my neighbor, and asked her to make sure the kids didn't play in my yard again. She apologized and said sorry, she had just been happy for them to get out of the house while she cleaned. I thought no problem, en... keep reading on reddit ➡
I didn’t believe it was the real streamer until he talked in game, and his YT videos confirmed his Riot name is actually just ‘shroud’. Here’s the end game screen.
None of my friends in real life are into gaming as much as I am so they wouldn’t comprehend how cool I find this to be. I just had to share this somewhere.
I know a lot of people who may see this won’t care and that’s fine. I’m not expecting an “attaboy” for pure dumb luck.
I just think it’s a really cool thought to know that for 30 some minutes, an incredibly well-known streamer and community member and I shared a common goal.
It’ll likely never happen again, and that’s okay, because it did.
Thanks for reading

All the time I hear that camping ruins the fun of the game. Yeah, no shit it ruins the fun, it’s because you’re too shit of a gamer to overcome this player. Just because this tactic requires “little skill” doesn’t mean it should be looked down upon. If proper team-work and pressure can be applied, anyone could easily beat a camper and the “fun that camping takes out of the game” can instantly become a challenge that makes the game even more interesting. This includes (and is obviously not limited to) more communication between teammates so that all camping spots are known/in control...or taking the time to avoid campers and find strategies to lure them. Of course you’ll probably never be able to completely survive from campers, but finding a way to work around it will add another layer of complexity to multiplayer gaming.
I'm on mobile, so sorry about the errors. Context, I'm a classicly trained pianist, I can play Beethoven to Liszt and I've been playing on this public piano pretty regularly for a while. This happend a couple days ago at a mall, and its been floating around in my head since. Imagine the standered mall food court, with tables, and chairs, with a 8 foot grand piano just visible of all the seats. Thats what I was playing at. (Not sure if this matters but I was playing Liszt's "La Campenella"!)
It was probobly 1 o'clockish and the lunch rush was just about over, and some people were getting up from there seats and walking right by the piano, and start staring at my hands. "That's fine" I was thinking, trying not to lose concentration on the piece. And then all of a sudden I noticed some lady, probobly in her 40's, and her kid, about 5 or 6ish standing completely still in the way of everyone trying to get by, I just assumed she was trying to enjoy the music, but then all of a sudden she s... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m just here to say I enjoy this game. I don’t get caught up in the drama. Some leagues I have more fun than others. Some leagues I have less fun that others.
I suspect this is the overwhelming majority of players feelings towards the company. The vocal minority on this subreddit honestly feels pretty toxic most of the time.
I don’t really care who sees this or agrees. I just hope someone who makes this game sees that I appreciate it. It’s been good, I’ll keep playing casually and buy the occasional thing. I’ll also play path of exile 2 when it comes out too, and I’ll occasionally buy things in it too.
I think people’s main issue here in this subreddit is that Path of Exile dominates their life, instead of their life being 90% of what they do and path of exile being 10% of what they do. If you played and cared a little less and invested in other things you may be a little more happy with the state of the game. Just my $0.02 🤷🏼♂️
Hello, I was born with 4 fingers so gaming has always been interesting for me, however the option to togglewalk makes it very much possible to play this game without feeling like I’m bringing my team down.
The new patch for some reason made that option not work so now I get flamed everygame for not shifting.
This is a basic mechanic of the game so I was hoping for a quick hotfix. However it has been almost a week since this patch came up and I’m still unable to use it.
Will we have to wait until next patch for this to be solved? Is togglewalk just going away?
Edit: so many of you are trying to help and empathise with an issue that doesn’t affect you that it’s making me emotional :’) tysm
Edit 2: loads of people are telling me to change the mouse buttons, so just fyi my mouse has 2 extra buttons but they are both already being used (this is usually how I manage to game). And yes I could change my settings to something not as preferable but more functional, but Rioters have stated... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've started grinding elo, and I skyrocketed from Gold to Diamond. What I did? Every single game, I have to check if those guys are going first time Azir, or if they're picking Zed even after 43% WR on 150 games and a <2 KDA. So I dodge those games.
Then, you have to mute both chats, as that's just a mine of tilt and it draws way to much attention. And on top of that, you've to keep encouraging but not to much. If you don't encourage them, they will ff as soon as they get 1v4 killed. If you encourage them a bit to much, they will 1v4 as soon as possible. But, you have the chat disabled, so yeah, it sucks.
Basicly my point is today leagues feel like a kindergarten of childs ragequitting ( I'm the only one who has seen a lot of those recently? It seems like since it started the circle jerk on reddit, people started doing it! ), or just refussing to win, cause they're ego bombs.
My sister had to go to an appointment in my area and asked me to watch her kids while she was at her appointment.
I agreed to and got on the phone to talk to my niece and nephew (Jane and James) for a little bit. I told them they should bring their swimsuits because it’s going to be hot that day and they could go swimming in my pool. They sounded so excited. They don’t get to go swimming a lot anymore since they moved.
So around 11am my sister came over and dropped off the kids. They immediately wanted to go swimming so they changed into their swimsuits.
Now I should mention that my pool does not have a traditional shallow end. The shallowest part of the pool is 8ft deep.
It didn’t even cross my mind that this would be a problem because I know both Jane and James swim very well, but apparently my sisters stepdaughter (Ashley) does not. I mistakenly assumed she could swim because she’s older than the twins.
Anyway as soon as James is changed he goes running to the pool and jumps... keep reading on reddit ➡
I come from England where you rarely see the Union Jack or the English flag anywhere outside of government buildings, during the World Cup, or a few unusual people who have flagpoles. Actually having a flag on display is someone's home has negative connotations - associated with ethno-nationalism and by extension some far-right views. Not saying I agree with this, but it seems to be the prevailing view.
In China the visage of Chariman Mao is everywhere and the same for Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam. They have huge images of them in all government buildings and there is an image of them above the board in every classroom. They are described as the "Father of the Nation" and Ho Chi Minh is referred to as "Uncle Ho". My own belief for this is as a form of control - they both represent their own political parties and cultivate the feeling of trust towards the party in order to retain control. This is done in schools in order to develop that belief from a young age. I believe the US flag plays th... keep reading on reddit ➡
