>Players can have up to 2 reroll credits, and a credit is granted every 250 ARAM points. The ARAM points are earned every time players finish a matchmade ARAM game regardless of the match result. The number of points granted is based on the number of available champions (which include champions owned, champions on rotation, and the list of 65 champions always free in ARAM) plus a fixed number of points.
>ARAM reroll points (rounded down) = 65 + 1.5 × (number of available champions).
>A reroll credit is ensured every two matches.
>To ensure a reroll credit every single match, a player needs to own 59 champions not contained in the basic list of 65 champions always free for ARAM.
Like the title says, there's no need to hold onto two rerolls in ARAM. If I have two available, I always reroll, and then swap back to my previous champ if I don't want the new one. I do this as a habit now, and even if I'm fine with the first champ I get, rerolling it can help other players.
And I know there's a chance that another player takes my champ and I reroll into a worse champ, but:
I was playing a few games of ARAM earlier to cash in my chests and I had to be going back to the collection tab after every game to refresh my memory of what champs I haven't gotten chests on yet
If you don't already know if you're eligible for a chest on a certain champion, it can be a bit tedious when you're rolling through different champions in aram since there are so many and chests don't reset until the next season. A small icon somewhere on the screen (maybe somewhere around the "boost" button?) could help so much to just let you know if you've already gottten a chest for that champ. It could just be a small indicator that lights up if you have a chest available for that champion, and is greyed out if you don't.
Preamble: I’ve been playing this game since 2007. I’ve been able to kill a couple titans in my time. I was in the fight at KVN, I was in the fight on every Keepstar in Fountain. We defended our home and Lost. I was there, losing dreads trying to kill keepstars in NPC delve. In the last 3 days, I have witnessed more destruction than I thought possible. I wrote my first AAR about killing a single titan in May. It was exciting. This… woah boy. I should also warn you this isn’t a neutral post. Assume -9 GMT time zones. (DT is at 3am.) I name drop people who I’ve never talked to. No Hamsters were harmed in the writing of this report.
It’s Wednesday. I’m in the same zoom meeting I’ve been in since April. I'm drinking the same stale coffee and if the temperature outside gets any colder it won’t matter if its freedom units or Communist propaganda units.
Let me just log into my eve accounts for a second. Check the pings. See what people are up to before the New Year. Short little adventure in and out in 20 minutes. Back to work in no time.
Ping, ping. Ping. Fuck… Titans, Supers, Peasant capitals get in fleet. Let’s go fight some nerds on one of our space castles.
What time is it? I’m still technically at work…. Well, its government work… I’m probably going to sit on tether and not do anything. Eh, we might not even jump in. Passpi probably won’t even show up.
Wife: Hey honey, let me know when you get off work so we can go skating with… *puts on headphones* yes dear, love you… *moving mouth* *pointing at things* Yes of course honey. I trust your judgement. Love you.
Check Fuel. Check fighters. Check underwear. Okay. Let’s jump.
We jump in and we’re sitting on grid. We’re on a keepstar. Why are we... oh shit. I’m in my baby. Like I have children, but I built my Nyx from scratch. I put a load of minerals in and watched her being born! I raised her, she has a name and I know her birthday.
There’s a Titan being killed in bubbles. Man we killed a Titan! 1 titan is a huge deal! Isk positive baby!
Well whatever, we’re not… The comms hum to life:
“The Keepstar is taken, it is over.”
“You said these Keepstars would never fall while your Imperium defends them! They still defend them. They have died defending them!”
Is there no other way for the Krabs and carebears to get out of the system?
“They will not get far, the Horde is too many.”
“So much death, what can goons do against such reckless pubbies?”
“Ride out with me! Charge your Doomsdays and meet them... keep reading on reddit ➡
We made the mistake of trusting our realtor, and I’m probably going to be very upset for a awhile.
We had our realtor for awhile and we found a house. We put an offer in contingent on the inspection. There were two major things that needed fixed: electrical ($1500) and brick on the front of the house (3k). These were done by a general home inspector.
We sent over the request for repairs within our two week window. This is where things got bad.
We sent it over and the seller never responded or even signed anything. The deal was that they fix those things or we don’t buy the house.
The realtor called me and said he wanted to have a mason come out to look at the brick as opposed to our home inspector for a more accurate quote. His mason guy came out and quoted $1500.
We kept following up with the realtor for the next two weeks after that and he kept telling us “I’m 99% sure he is fixing the brick, and the electrical is being done” giving me some story about how the “electricians code” requires them to fix all of it.
Then he said the seller will fix the electrical, but not the brick. I said no bueno, and my realtor said his mason guy quoted $1500. I asked for the quote and his contact information.
It’s getting close to closing and we ask if the electrical is fixed. He says “yes I think so” and sends over an invoice for a new panel and nothing else. We say we want to go and look ourselves. He finally says it’s not done and someone will be in to do the rest. We go over there and see someone doing more of it, but not all we found out later. Out of all the electrical that needed fixed, only half was done, but realtor told us all.
Kept asking for the quote and contact info, he keeps saying he will get it to me. Stupidly close (first time buyer, made a mistake).
After probably over a month with no quote or contact info, I realized he probably made it up to close the sale and I believed him. Had a mason come out (the only one that would answer my calls) and he explained that this had to be fixed a certain way (different than what my realtor was describing and his made up mason). $3300 I have to foot or the whole front brick could collapse.
Finally, per our contract the seller had 15 days to move out after closing. I didn’t know any better on this. Our realtor told us he would be out a day after we close. This was not the case. I think our realtor told is that so we would close. The seller didn’t move out until last week even though our realtor said... keep reading on reddit ➡

I see some talk here about how superior the 6A banners are to these banners and I scratch my head. The make up is slightly better, I'll agree, but this fest has some of the best Syncs in the game (Tifa Sync2), two great support awakenings (Minfilia and Orran), and Dyads for three of the more popular charcters (Tifa, Lightning, and Cecil).
But that's besides the point. The reason this i relevent is that I see people wondering whether they should do the stamp select for a free Sync NOW or wait until 6A. This is a foolish choice, I say. Don't choose. Get both.
Simply put, after last fest, I was completely drained of mythril. Like, I had 0 after pulling together the last three Mythril I needed for one last pull (It got my Orran's Sync, so not bad). I currently have 264 Mythril after pulling 4 times on Banner 1 (why do you hate me when I love you Tifa?). AND after pulling on the Awakening lucky AND after pulling on ONE of the RoP banners. I have done all of 6 realm dungeons in all that time as well. It's not coming from those in case you're worried about that.
Now, this has been said before, but I've seen the wait sentiment a few times and want to make sure this is widely known. And if this fest doesn't have relics you want then it is what it is, wait for 6A. But the way I see it, both have great relics (I'm going for Tyro and Cloud next time), and ten pulls guarantees you a sync, which are still the top tier relics.
Now, there are caveats. I did not pull at all between fests. I did not pull on any of the RoP outside of one futile pull chasing Ovelia's awakening. I only pulled on one of the half price banners leading up to the fest (though at this point for late gamers those are less enticing) and I haven't pulled on any of the 15 mythril refreshed banners. But I'm at the point where specific relics are much more beneficial to me than lots of relics. Getting Rem's sync and Squall's sync is going to help me more than getting Selphie's USB2 or Cater's Glint+.
And, of course, you may just be too lucky for your own good. If somehow Cecil and Lightning's Dyads fall into my lap in one pull, I might just pocket the extra 150 mythril and wait. But if you've got the mythril and any of the relics look interesting to you, consider going looking at the sync select list and going for it.
Also, a friend of mine got match-made with Phil in D1 year 1. I was so jealous and in a way have been looking for him ever since. Six years later...
I live where it rains... a lot. The auto wipers for me have been middling at best (especially at night) which means I’m constantly interfacing with the screen to adjust.
I read about the guy in Germany who ran into court troubles for adjusting through the screen, and was thinking about what could be done to alleviate those concerns and also make my life easier in this rainy part of the world.
I figured it would be a great idea to be able to roll through the wiper settings with a double-press of the wipe button on the end of the stalk. Single press still does a single wipe as now, and the screen settings stay the same, however when you double-press the button it would go from the current setting (say off), to 1. Double-press again and it goes to 2, etc. until you roll through them all back to off.
This would allow us to adjust the wipers without having to look at the screen, and would (in theory) only be a bit of software to implement.
This also would help with the other problem I’m having now: I have been stuck in manual mode as of late because my windshield has a crack in front of the camera cluster...and that makes the car think there’s water there and wipe constantly if in auto. Scheduled to be replaced, but often conditions lend themselves to falling back to manual control and this makes that manual control just a bit easier/convenient with minimal cost to implement. Thoughts?
Bluescreened then 'Reboot and select proper boot device'? HELP! Bit of background: Had my PC about 9 months. Today I upgraded the motherboard and installed 2 more sticks of ram. Turned it on and it was fine, working normally for about half an hour. Turned away for about 5 minutes, looked back and it bluescreened (Critical Process Died). Pressed ESC, them when it went to restart it went to the 'Reboot and select proper boot device' page. Tried the most common stuff: Holding Ctrl Alt Del as it boots up, going into the bios and changing the boot order, even changed the motherboard battery to see if that was the problem (It wasn't) All to no avail. Really lost for what I can do, any help would be appreciated greatly :)
EDIT: Fixed. I Installed Windows installer onto a USB, went to install it and my m.2 was wiped. Didn't have a choice except just reinstalling windows and starting fresh. Thanks to everyone for their help :)
She turning 19 soon, I've been told she can never live on her own because she needs a bit of help with things and is on disability... But I met her and she's just a sweet girl in my eyes so I'm not 100% sure what that means and am considering it completely irrelevant since her sister said she would probably love to experiment in some makeup.
I really want to get her a tinted moisturizer or something she wouldn't have any issues trying to blend/wouldn't look crazy/shocking to her if she did want to play around and give it shot. Oh and some powder! Probably pressed.
I already got an eye pallette, starter brushes, skin care kit, and mascara picked out for her, but any suggestions will help so much please!
Also, I'm assuming she has combo skin for now. Last time I had seen her she had flawless skin, last picture from summer she was completely broken out.
