Honestly one of the most ridiculous mini runs I've seen in a while from a single player, in 3 minutes he destroyed all hope for Minnesota. I know the Wolves aren't a good team but man that was so fun to watch.
He finished the night with 36/6/4/3 with 3 TOs on 11-21 shooting (7/12 from 3) in 34 minutes.
This is a view I have held for a while and was wondering other people’s thoughts on this?

Ok, so I know this may not matter a ton in some cases but I 100% hate volumetric and 'generic' measurements.
What is a "1 medium onion" (my grocery store literally only carries 'jumbo' yellow onions unless I buy a 5 lb bag)?
When a recipe calls for "1/2 cup fresh sage leaves, finely chopped" does it want packed leaves or lose leaves? In general, due to the order I assume this means "Get 1/2 cup fresh sage leaves then chop them" but there is a big difference between "1/2 packed cups" and "1/2 loose cups".
I know not everyone has a scale (especially a sensitive scale) but why can't we just say "1 medium onion (about 1 cup or 100 grams)"( no idea if that is a good conversion or not just using a example).
For the most part, it probably doesn't matter but sometimes I really would like to have a weight so I can just tare the scale and start adding the next thing.
Edit: I feel the need to clarify 2 points:
So, years ago a young version of myself came across this YouTube video Gender Attraction Differential. It was probably the first video of its kind that I saw, when I was much more impressionable. In short, it argues that most marriages fail because women are forced to "date down" based on their OKCupid desirability rating. I don't plan on analyzing this particular video (I can in another post if there is interest), but looking back, I find this type of video out there is contributing to a very particular type of masculinity that is related to the incel culture. It brings up certain statistics or facts that make sense on their own, but when strung together, paint an entire different, anti-women picture and you get ensnared if you're not careful.
I only bring this up because YouTube recently brought up this channel in my recommendations: Better Bachelor. Why it showed up in my recommended? IDK, I guess I have to reflect on my viewing habits, I suppose, but I want to discuss the content of this channel.
My summary of the content is that Better Bachelor is speaking to those men that feel left behind by women and feminism, but also that they haven't gotten what the "patriarchy" has promised them either, and are tired of how the dating world treats men. The "older incels", if that makes sense. Let's take the top viewed video on the channel, She leaves a guy at rock bottom, but when he becomes a winner, she's furious. This, somehow, strikes a chord with many people; men that become successful later in life now suddenly seem desirable to women that ignored them before (although I even doubt that desirability, it seems to be more like a fantasy, but I digress). My general impression of the videos is that they do talk to some parts of the men's rights issues that we discuss here (ie how men are less likely to get custody of children and have to pay alimony), but also sneakily sneaks in misogynistic and plain backwards thinking (men don't want women who have already had sex? He never actually goes into why, but says it like its a given. I think he says it like "no one wants used women" or "why should we settle for used women" blegh).
Going back to the title, it seems that these videos take these issues that men are unsatisfied with about current society (ie the child custody example I mentioned above, or just th... keep reading on reddit ➡
None of these barter trade changes, price changes, flea market restrictions, hideout crafting changes, etc make the game any harder for me or anyone I play with. It doesn't make any of us progress through levels any slower. if anything, it makes the game easier because people are less likely to seek out firefights. it doesn't make the game harder, it makes the game more frustrating to play.
Not only that, but BSG changes a few barter trades to more accurately reflect the market price, like the ADAR for example, god forbit we make 10k every 2 hours off an ADAR trade. Yet, we still have the vast majority of barter trades SO far off from anything that makes economic sense. A phased array element trade for a DVL? What?
WARNING: Major Spoilers for Red Dead Redemption 2 and Cyberpunk 2077!!
If you've finished either RDR2 or Cyberpunk, it's easy to see that mortality is a central theme in both games.
By a certain point in the story, both Arthur and V are dying and aware of it. Both games dedicate time to examine the characters' fears, regrets, and search for meaning with this knowledge. There's consideration of the fragility of life, the value of living, and the benefits of using one's limited time alive to make a difference in the world.
Yet, in both games, the gameplay surrounding this examination of mortality involves Arthur and V killing endless amounts of disposable people without an afterthought. Sometimes the killing is justified in the story, but sometimes the killing is just the next bit of action to keep the game exciting.
I found this gameplay represented almost a completely opposite point to the main story: that life is disposable, not worth valuing too much, and ultimately worth ending for the fun of shooting or stabbing someone.
There's some serious whiplash between a cutscene dedicated to the main character lamenting the tragedy of death and gameplay immediately afterwards of the main character shooting ten people in the head with a shotgun without a second thought. If the main character does not respect the value of the lives around them, why should I care about the main character's value of their own life?
Now, I'm not criticizing the violence in either game. I just think it's weird to make the story in your game about killing people about the tragedy of the killer dying and not the tragedy of the people being killed by the killer.
Such a consistent undermining of the main theme made it hard for me to care much about the story, because I felt like the game itself was not taking its own story and themes seriously. I also do not play very many AAA games, so I found it strange that both Cyberpunk and RDR2 did this.
I would be interested in hearing your thoughts.
