2023.06.07 08:03 Reverendreader Better than Ri

This story which I absolutely loved, written by a new author is being dropped, The guy told me in discord that he will drop it if he doesn't get more reviews n stuff, This novel's potential is out of this world! We have to make him continue writing... Start was just generic cultivation novel bullshit, but once the main characters are born, everything changes... It could be our next Ri, please go and support this guy, atleast try reading the first 20 chapters, even 10... I really don't want him to stop.

2023.06.07 08:03 __killerqueen_ I made a short story

I made a short story
Hello, always before sleeping I usually think about little stories in my head, because it helps me sleep and distracts me from myself. The other day while I was about to sleep I thought that maybe someone would also like to read some of the stories. I am not a writer or anything like that and English is not my first language, so please don't roast me too much, but if I could get a bit of feedback and a title suggestion, it would be great.
Luna had been one of the most skilled and elusive spies the agency had ever seen. Her lithe figure and keen intellect made her a force to be reckoned with in the world of espionage. From the shadows, she observed her targets, extracting information with precision and finesse. No detail was too small for her perceptive eyes, no challenge too great for her agile mind. Her mastery in the art of disguise allowed her to slip seamlessly into any environment. She could transform herself into a corporate executive, a glamorous socialite, or a humble janitor, blending flawlessly into the background while her sharp senses absorbed every vital clue. Her abilities were unmatched, her instincts honed to perfection. But the relentless demands of the agency, the constant cloak-and-dagger existence, had taken their toll on Luna's spirit. The sacrifices she had made, the lives she had manipulated in the name of national security, had begun to weigh heavily on her conscience. The pursuit of justice had started to blur with the moral gray areas she often found herself in. One fateful day, a heated disagreement erupted between Luna and the agency's higher-ups. It was a clash of ideologies and methodologies, a rift that seemed insurmountable. Luna, disillusioned and weary, made the difficult decision to retire, seeking solace and redemption in a quiet life far away from the world she had known. She retreated to a quaint countryside cottage, surrounded by lush greenery and the soothing melodies of nature. The walls of her sanctuary were adorned with mementos of past missions, reminders of the darkness she had once embraced. In the tranquility of her new existence, she sought to find balance and reclaim her sense of self. Days turned into weeks, and weeks into months as Luna relished in the simplicity of her retreat. She immersed herself in books, art, and the solace of her own thoughts. But deep down, she couldn't completely escape the remnants of her old life. The thrill of espionage, the adrenaline that surged through her veins during high-stakes operations, still tugged at her spirit. Then, one fateful evening, as the sun painted the sky with hues of gold, a letter arrived at her doorstep. Its official seal bore the emblem of the agency she had once served. Luna's heart skipped a beat as she opened it, a mix of trepidation and curiosity coursing through her. The letter detailed a mission of utmost importance that required Luna's unique set of skills. Her expertise, they explained, was indispensable in putting an end to the reign of a notorious British Italian mafia mobster, Leonardo Vanucci. The crimes he had committed were beyond comprehension, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. They needed Luna's unparalleled abilities to ensure justice was served. Luna's initial reaction was one of hesitation and skepticism. The wounds from her departure were still fresh, and she had sworn never to work with the agency again. But deep down, she knew that the darkness she had once fought against still existed in the world. The innocent lives at stake compelled her to reconsider. She reflected on the intricate web of Vanucci's criminal empire, the lives shattered by his brutality. The memories of those he had victimized fueled a flicker of determination within her. With a mix of apprehension and resolve, she picked up her phone and dialed the number to the agency, ready to embark on one final mission. "Hello?" a familiar voice answered on the other end. "Lisa," Luna said, her voice soft yet filled with a mix of longing and determination. "It's me, Luna. I received the mission brief." There was a moment of silence before Lisa replied, her voice tinged with surprise and relief. "Luna! I can't believe it's really you. "We thought we'd lost you for good. Are you... are you considering accepting the mission?" Luna hesitated, her mind racing with conflicting thoughts. "I swore I would never work with the agency again, but... the atrocities Vanucci has committed... I can't turn a blind eye. Innocent lives are at stake." Lisa's voice softened, understanding lacing her words. "I know how much this decision weighs on you, Luna. But you're one of the best operatives we've ever had. If anyone can stop Vanucci and bring justice, it's you." Luna clenched her fist, her resolve solidifying. "Alright, Lisa. I'll do it. But on one condition: you're with me every step of the way." A mix of emotions swirled within Lisa's voice, a blend of gratitude and vulnerability. "Luna, I've always been with you. And I promise, I'll be by your side throughout this mission." Luna smiled, a flicker of warmth spreading through her chest. She knew that having Lisa by her side would not only provide support but also ignite a renewed sense of purpose. The bond they shared had transcended the professional realm, and Luna couldn't deny the small spark of affection she felt for her companion. With their partnership reaffirmed, Luna and Lisa delved into the intricacies of the mission. They meticulously planned each step, exploiting Vanucci's weaknesses and exploiting the criminal underworld he controlled. Lisa's knowledge of the agency's latest technology and her strategic thinking proved invaluable in formulating the perfect approach. Days turned into nights as Luna underwent intense training, honing her skills to a razor's edge. Lisa provided guidance and support, her voice a constant presence through the earpiece as Luna practiced marksmanship, stealth, and evasion. Their interactions were a delicate dance of camaraderie and unspoken connection, deepening their bond with every shared moment. Finally, the day of the mission arrived. Luna stood before a full-length mirror, adjusting her attire—a sleek black suit that accentuated her lithe figure and allowed for swift movements. She fastened the earpiece, her eyes meeting her reflection with determination. "Are you ready, Luna?" Lisa's voice resonated through the earpiece, a mix of excitement and concern. Luna met her own gaze in the mirror, her voice steady. "I am, Lisa. Let's put an end to Vanucci's reign of terror." As Luna stepped out into the world once more, her senses sharpened, her instincts heightened. The journey to infiltrate Vanucci's empire would be perilous, but she knew that with Lisa's guidance and unwavering support, they stood a chance to bring justice to the countless lives affected by his malevolence. Together, they embarked on their mission, their steps in sync as they weaved through the intricate web of deceit and danger. The path ahead was treacherous, but Luna felt a sense of purpose and a glimmer of hope, knowing that she had a steadfast ally by her side. Their intelligence led them to Vanucci's luxurious cruise ship, a floating den of opulence and criminal activities. The ship was a fortress, heavily guarded by Vanucci's loyal henchmen. Luna and Lisa devised a plan to infiltrate the cruise by disguising themselves as waitresses, blending in with the crowd while keeping a keen eye on their target. Inside the cruise ship, Luna donned a bunny suit, her heart pounding with a mixture of nerves and determination. She adjusted the costume, a playful yet alluring attire that made her feel both exposed and inconspicuous. Luna couldn't help but comment, half-jokingly, to Lisa through her earpiece, "I feel like a hooker," Luna remarked, her voice laced with a hint of amusement. Lisa chuckled softly on the other end of the earpiece. "You're a vision, Luna. Just remember, this disguise is crucial for getting close to Vanucci. Stay focused." Luna took a deep breath, steeling herself for what lay ahead. The cruise ship was a world of its own, with lavish casinos, elegant lounges, and opulent suites. It catered to the whims of the wealthy elite and the darker desires of the mafia. Luna had to navigate this treacherous environment to fulfill her mission. As Luna moved through the ship, serving drinks and blending in with the waitstaff, she observed the guests closely, searching for any signs of Vanucci's presence. Her eyes darted from table to table, her ears attuned to every whispered conversation. It didn't take long for Luna to catch a glimpse of the man she sought. Leonardo Vanucci, the British Italian mafia mob, sat at a private blackjack table, surrounded by his entourage. His cold, calculating eyes scanned the room, his aura radiating power and danger. Luna's heart raced as she approached the table, her steps measured and her movements graceful. She served drinks to the guests, keeping her gaze low, careful not to draw unnecessary attention. She needed the perfect moment, the opportune time to strike. She felt Lisa's presence in her ear, providing updates and guidance. "Luna, be patient. Wait for the right moment. We have eyes on Vanucci's movements. We'll let you know when the time is right." Luna nodded imperceptibly, her focus unwavering. She maintained her role as a waitress, gracefully maneuvering through the crowd, all the while keeping a watchful eye on Vanucci. Minutes turned into hours as Luna bided her time, her mind calculating every possible scenario. Finally, the moment arrived. Vanucci's entourage dissipated, leaving him momentarily alone. Lisa's voice crackled through the earpiece. "Now, Luna. It's your chance. Take him out." Luna's heart pounded in her chest as she approached Vanucci, her hand reaching for the concealed pistol strapped to her thigh. She drew closer, her footsteps silent, her breath steady. Vanucci turned his gaze towards her, his eyes lingering on her bunnysuit-clad form. A flicker of a sinister smile danced across his lips. "Well, well, what do we have here? A little bunny hopping into my world?" Luna kept her composure, her finger tightening around the trigger. "Your world is about to come crashing down, Vanucci." Before he could react, Luna raised her arm, aiming directly at Vanucci's head, and pulled the trigger. The sound of the gunshot reverberated through the room as time seemed to freeze for a brief moment. Vanucci's body slumped forward, lifeless, a crimson stain spreading across his forehead. Chaos erupted around Luna as panic and confusion filled the air. She swiftly turned on her heels and made a daring escape, utilizing her knowledge of the ship's layout to evade pursuit. Lisa's voice echoed in Luna's ear, a mix of relief and urgency. "Luna, well done. Get out of there. We have a safe extraction point nearby." Luna's heart raced as she navigated the labyrinthine corridors of the ship, her mind focused on reaching safety. She ducked into alcoves, slipped through hidden passages, and used her agility to outmaneuver any obstacles in her path. Finally, Luna reached the designated extraction point. A small boat awaited her, its engine humming softly. As Luna settled into the boat, a wave of exhaustion and accomplishment washed over her. The weight of the mission, the years of pent-up emotions, and the adrenaline-fueled rush all converged in a single moment. She looked back at the cruise ship, the symbol of Vanucci's empire, now a scene of chaos and confusion. Beside her, Lisa emerged from the shadows, her eyes filled with admiration and concern. "You did it, Luna. Vanucci is no more." Luna's chest rose and fell with deep breaths as she leaned back, the cool breeze caressing her face. "We did it, Lisa. We brought justice to those who suffered under his rule." Their gazes locked, and in that moment, the unspoken connection between them spoke volumes. Luna felt a sense of gratitude, not just for Lisa's unwavering support during the mission, but for the companionship that had developed between them over the years. "Thank you, Lisa," Luna murmured, her voice tinged with a hint of vulnerability. Lisa's eyes softened, a gentle smile gracing her lips. "Luna, you've always been an incredible operative, but more importantly, you're my closest friend. I'll always be here for you." A mixture of emotions swirled within Luna—relief, satisfaction, and a burgeoning realization of something more. The line between friendship and something deeper had blurred during their time together, and Luna couldn't deny the small crush that had blossomed within her heart. As the boat carried them away from the remnants of their mission, Luna and Lisa leaned against each other, finding solace and comfort in their shared victory. The sun dipped below the horizon, painting the sky with hues of orange and pink, as if celebrating the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. In that tranquil moment, Luna knew that her journey was far from over. There would always be new battles to fight, new injustices to confront. But with Lisa by her side, Luna felt a newfound strength and purpose, knowing that their bond would carry them through the darkness and into a brighter future. Together, they sailed into the twilight, ready to face whatever challenges awaited them, hand in hand, as partners, confidants, and perhaps something more.

2023.06.07 08:03 Terrible-Reception14 Is there any way to resurrect dead Type Covers?

I've had two on two different Surfaces 2017, and one of them died and the other is dying (one day it'll work and the other it won't, for no apparent reason). It looks like crappy engineering, much like the fabric overlay that is known for wearing fast and peeling off its plastic substructure.
Those things are expensive AF (especially to us, Poles), but since my wife's Surface 2017 somehow still lives on after 4+ years now: is there any way to cut this bastard in two and reball/resolder it locally or whatever? Has someone managed to locate the manufacturing defect causing this thing to misconnect? Or is it just the way it is in 2023 where you simply shouldn't expect expensive stuff to live longer than five years.
And don't even get me started on dirty connectors, because that's automated tech support BS in 99% of cases, including mine.

2023.06.07 08:03 nonsapiens This subreddit will be joining the 12th of June protests against Reddit's decision to kill all third-party apps.

TL;DR: This sub is going to be switched into private mode on the 12th of June. That means nobody will be able to see it, comment or post. We are doing this in protest of Reddit's recent plans to kill third-party apps which will have wide-ranging effects on all users.
What's going on?
A recent Reddit policy change threatens to kill many beloved third-party mobile apps, making a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible to users.
On May 31, 2023, Reddit announced they were raising the price to make calls to their API from being free to a level that will kill every third party app on Reddit, from Apollo to Reddit is Fun to Narwhal to BaconReader.
Even if you're not a mobile user and don't use any of those apps, this is a step toward killing other ways of customizing Reddit, such as Reddit Enhancement Suite or the use of the old.reddit.com desktop interface .
This isn't only a problem on the user level: many subreddit moderators depend on tools only available outside the official app to keep their communities on-topic and spam-free.
What's the plan?
On June 12th, many subreddits will be going dark to protest this policy. Some will return after 48 hours: others will go away permanently unless the issue is adequately addressed, since many moderators aren't able to put in the work they do with the poor tools available through the official app. This isn't something any of us do lightly: we do what we do because we love Reddit, and we truly believe this change will make it impossible to keep doing what we love.
The two-day blackout isn't the goal, and it isn't the end. Should things reach the 14th with no sign of Reddit choosing to fix what they've broken, we'll use the community and buzz we've built between then and now as a tool for further action.
What can you do?
  1. Complain. Message the mods of reddit.com, who are the admins of the site: message reddit: submit a support request: comment in relevant threads on reddit, such as this one, leave a negative review on their official iOS or Android app- and sign your username in support to this post.
  2. Spread the word. Meme it up, make it spicy. Bitch about it to your cat. Suggest anyone you know who moderates a subreddit join us at our sister sub at ModCoord - but please don't pester mods you don't know by simply spamming their modmail.
  3. Boycott and spread the word...to Reddit's competition! Stay off Reddit entirely on June 12th through the 13th- instead, take to your favourite non-Reddit platform of choice and make some noise in support!
  4. Don't be a jerk. As upsetting this may be, threats, profanity and vandalism will be worse than useless in getting people on our side. Please make every effort to be as restrained, polite, reasonable and law-abiding as possible.

2023.06.07 08:03 muusicman My connection just dropped for a few minutes.

Did Orbi just do an update? How can I tell? I have 1Gbps fiber, watching something on my iPad that was purchased around 2016. My phone and my iPad wifi dropped iPhone 11 Pro Max. Do they usually install updates late night/early morning? I’m confused. I figured Fiber literally never or extremely rarely went out. My ISP Is local. Not a big conglomerate like Google or Fios.

2023.06.07 08:02 Sephronar Sephronar welcomes in The Cornwall Act 2023!

As you would expect, I am very proud that we have reached this day after a lot of hard work and determination - there were times where I wondered if we would ever get there, if I should give up, but my determination to the Duchy that I love saw me through. Today we herald in a landmark piece of legislation which brings the people of Cornwall one step closer towards self-determination - all that is left now is the referendum which I personally believe will be more of an affirmation that a contentious campaign; consistent polls and petitions have show that this is what the people of Cornwall want, and what is a Government for if not to follow the democratic mandate of its people.
Today the Duchy of Cornwall proudly celebrates the passing of The Cornwall Act 2023. This transformative legislation grants the people of Cornwall the opportunity to participate in a crucial referendum, determining whether a Devolved Regional Assembly should be established - of course, it is clear, I believe that it should; but now the choice is finally theirs.
The Bill passed the Commons with 100 votes in favour, two thirds of the House of Commons, and it passed the Lords with 21 Lords voting for it as well - 65% of those voting too. This makes it clear that there is not just support in Cornwall, but nationally among the representatives of the whole United Kingdom too. I would like to take some credit for that, as through my persistence we have made this cause commonplace in our Parliament in a way that it hasn’t been since the times of former Prime Minister Tony Blair.
I thank everyone who has helped us get to this point - particularly KarlYonedaStan, miraiwae, and SpectacularSalad for their help in drafting the Bill. I really appreciate your support, and it shows what can be done when we work together across the party divide.
I would like to talk a bit about why I believe this Act is a genuinely transformative move for the people of Cornwall too - as I said in my opening speech, ‘Cornwall has never simply just been a ‘part of England’, our Celtic nature has always stood strong and prevails to this day - although I understand that our biggest hurdle now is convincing many of you who rather see us remain under the overlordship of England. Give us the freedom to decide our own destiny - as we do with Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Allied with this economic impoverishment has been the centralisation and transfer out of Cornwall of decision-making institutions and government offices – together with the skilled jobs they entail – to various undemocratic and faceless south-west England regional quangos, which are run by unelected, unaccountable London appointees. Westminster's frequent concern for poverty and under-development in the north-east of England is not replicated when it comes to the relative lack of state resources earmarked to tackle deprivation in Cornwall. Successive London governments have shown little respect for distant Cornwall, or its people, identity, history or culture. It is a far away place about which they know little and about which they seem to care even less. How else can the decades and centuries of neglect be explained?’
The Cornwall Act 2023 acknowledges the unique cultural heritage and identity of the Cornish people, and by establishing a Devolved Regional Assembly, Cornwall would have a platform to preserve and promote its distinct heritage, language, and traditions like no other before it - it would give us the power to decide how we want to preserve our valuable language and traditions and would be an embodiment of the aspirations and values of the Cornish community, ensuring that the decisions that are made reflect their needs and aspirations.
If voted for by the people of Cornwall as I believe it will, this Assembly will empower the people of Cornwall with the ability to make decisions that directly impact their region. Their elected representatives would have far more in-depth local knowledge of local issues that mean so much to the people of Cornwall, and would enable them to develop policies that are specifically tailored to Cornwall's unique challenges and opportunities; local people know best how to govern themselves! The new Assembly would also bring about numerous economic advantages for Cornwall. With greater decision-making powers, the assembly would have the opportunity to prioritise key sectors and industries that drive the region's growth - of course tourism, agriculture, but much more than that too; we are more than a tourist destination or a Duchy of farmers and with self-determination we can start to explore that more. Tailored economic policies could be implemented to attract investments, support local businesses, and create employment opportunities that align with Cornwall's strengths and aspirations. As many of you will be familiar with, Cornwall has long-struggled with poor infrastructure, hindering its progress and connectivity. This important step forward would allow us to take back control of our own infrastructure projects and secure funding for crucial developments and stimulate economic growth, improve quality of life, and strengthen Cornwall's position as a vibrant and sustainable region. I have to say I am very excited for what the future can hold!
Just the passing of this Bill represents a huge milestone for Cornwall, offering our residents the opportunity to shape our own destiny. The people of Cornwall now have the chance to decide for themselves if they want the power to shape their own destiny, and the Cornwall Act 2023 paves the way for a new era of self-governance and regional pride - I truly believe that they will seize it with both hands.
I have been fighting for this cause for years, and I am hugely looking forward to what comes next - rest assured I will keep up the fight until the people of Cornwall get the representation that they deserve.

2023.06.07 08:02 stepantrofi Mandy Rework Ideas

I play Mandy q frequently and I think I have a pretty good understanding as to why she’s hardly ever picked in competitive. Her mechanic of standing still simply isn’t cut out for the juke festival that higher levels of brawl are played with.
Here are some of my suggestions to make her more competitively viable in her best game modes (Bounty and Knockout):
  1. Similar to Mortis, Mr P and other brawlers, remove her 1st sp and just boost her base projectile speed by 20%. That way you don’t have to stand still with her to hit shots in competitive, and standing still for range can be more strategic.
  2. Ideas for first sp replacement: reduce time it takes to stand still and activate long shot
  3. Keep second sp. This change makes the second sp more viable for long range maps where u can sort of camp back as a Mandy (Flaring Phoenix, Shooting Star), but also let’s u pick Mandy with first sp in maps where u need to juke for your life.
  4. Not sure about the exact interactions, but there is a chance that these changes in mechanics might make her a little too strong. If that’s the case, nerf her damage / hp to compensate.
Overall I think these changes will make her more competitive and accentuate her character concept / play style as that camper marksmen.
Happy to hear your thoughts and criticisms in the comments. Hope Supercell sees this as I really like playing Mandy / Marksmen in general.

2023.06.07 08:02 oftensun Building a low rank team to play with in pubs and an SEA based league

I'm looking for 4 players ranked 2500 and below to play pubs and in an SEA league. Please hit me up via PM if you meet the following requirements (please read them and think about them carefully) and are interested -
  1. You want to improve your game by playing more captain's mode in a stack of 5 that competes regularly against teams of mid to high skill (there will be teams with immortal players in the league and if you're someone who doesn't enjoy the underdog mentality you probably won't enjoy playing in the team I'm building).
  2. You're eager to try new things and have fun with it even if it means losing a couple of games and mmr here and there (sometimes more than a few kek).
  3. Your ping to SEA doesn't exceed 160.
  4. You don't tilt/blame your teammates for a bad start in lane, during the game or after the game. Instead, you enjoy constructive discussion about what could have been done better.
  5. You are tryhard without being toxic in game and chill and friendly outside of it.
  6. You aren't a snowflake.
  7. You're able to play most days between 6 - 10 PM SGT.
I am a dota veteran with fairly extensive experience captaining/drafting in battlecups, amateur leagues and other online tournaments. Please feel free to drop a PM if you have any questions or would like to have a chat over discord before deciding.

2023.06.07 08:02 I_Jungle_Teemo Excuse me while I rant to this wall over here for a while

Ok look, I just want to open by saying that this is gonna be long and kind of a vauge rant; but i wanted to post it somewhere just so that someone might understand where i'm coming from.
Im pretty sure i fall into a smallish minority of players of the Phantasy Star series. My first foray was Phantasy Star Universe; and while it seems to be a bit of a blacksheep of the series, as someone just discovering my first mmo outside of Runescape (and on a console no less) it was pure MAGIC. There was SO much to do, so many cool and unique items to collect, a fun and engaging community who was friendly and willing to help. You had branching paths, themed bosses; everything just felt so ALIVE to me as a kid. All these people here in this awesome virtual world all having fun, making real memories with real people through the joy of fun community features, and a shared love of finding the next exciting drop.
Jump forward in time a couple years after the PSU shutdown; I catch wind that PSO2 is playable in japan, and its possible to play from the US. Immediately, nostalgia floods me, and i start trying to rig the wonky launcher and super primitive english patch on some crappy 200 dollar walmart laptop i had (SO many hours spent doing captchas in hiragana as a dumb american... holy hell). I get into the server, and its like magic all over again; im a little confused about how the field lobbies are gone and how the layout works as a whole; but im having a good time. I settle in on ship 2, i do a handful of missions and happen to run across some english speaking players and boom; i'm in an alliance, here comes the sense of community again! Now, at this point i'm a little older and wiser; i've played a good few f2p mmos at this point, and so it isn't long before i notice the cash shop and start trying to figure out what i'm missing. So I start asking about in the voice chat of this alliance i'm in; and most people tell me that if i'm having fun that a premium set is the biggest thing worth having. However i would need to find a way to convert my money (which at the time was quite complicated, though it later got easier i'm told). So i kind of hit a stone wall and decide "Well im having fun, all these new skill trees are really cool and im enjoying the game and its combat especially vs PSU..... so how hard can it be to grind it out as a f2p?

Well it wasn't the worst. I lasted a good 6 months and maxxed out 1 class, i survive through SG storage space, and learn that through shop tickets and room tickets i can get pretty much anything i want through smart grinding. At some point through the leveling process, the loop started to feel more rewarding the more you really learned combat; but the overall rewards just felt so slow and unsatisfying. I'm sure it didnt help that MANY items were untranslated; but so much of the loot felt so samey. There were no super cool special drops or anything outside of augments really that people wanted that werent AC scratch items; so i got to farming. Alot of my alliance members were very skilled and knowledgeable, and frankly carried me super hard in both knowledge and power (shout out to Cedric, Gorani, and Maileese). I started to learn and understand alot about the game outside of the fun community aspects that drew me in. I started bringing in ok money and got my character set up with a cool outfit; made my room nice and decorated so i could invite my alliance over to hang out. Overall, i managed to thrive as a f2p despite constant mid run banking, storage problems, slower xp, and shitty buff drinks. I stayed and learned to thrive, because it gave me the option to thrive as a f2p through learning the finer bits of the market (and being able to access it reasonably easy).
Jump forward like 5-6 more years; my crappy laptop is dead; I had long taken a break from pso2 JP when they started ip banning english players; and im playing on xbox as my main source of gaming entertainment. I had almost forgotten they ever promised to bring pso2 west nearly 10 years ago; but when i saw PSO2 at E3 of all things; needless to say I LOST MY MIND! i was beyond excited for it to finally touch back down; and whats more its even coming to the platform i have access too! so many years of content and things i missed! I was mentally preparing to lose myself in PSO2 for ages; but this time i was fully invested in "Min/maxxing" mentality. I know that lots of people are going to be playing for the first time, and that having already played a bunch myself; i have the advantage to some degree in knowledge; and can use it both to help myself and others. I like to think that overall i did pretty good; i ran an alliance with a good handful of friends who i convinced to play; and we all had a great time... for about 2ish weeks until we realized gearing peaked at revolsio weapons. I knew the content drip would be slow but steady; but there was such a renewed sense of community, that even though they began to trickle out; i couldnt help but stay.
I started getting into augementing and experimenting with builds; i start affixing units and weapons for profit, i engage in the community colored chair wars, i people watch on block 69; life is GREAT and im having a great time. Ofc i bought in for a founders pack and had premium and some cosmetics and stuff; i was actually an adult with money this time, and i mean hey; what's 30 bucks to support a game i love and get basically everything i need for one character? I occasionally grumble over the inability to trade people without premium, or that those without it level extra slow; but i know that if they just make it over a certain barrier that they can thrive no problem. I use photon capsule machines to trade friends gear; we do even more advance quests even more of the time to make sure people get the levels they need; and eventually they have a stockpile of tickets, and have a max level character; and start making money. At some point alot of them start having enough fun that they too buy into the game, some for a premium set; some full send whales. Now, the whales started being a double edged blade; because there were enough people making well affixed gear at steady enough of pace; but jussst slow enough at first that demand was still very much outweighing supply. So the market begins to skyrocket on perfect affixed units. Now me personally; i made alot of money on this. but for MANY of the other players who are just trying to get better gear and those who are chasing the "end game" so to speak; this became super punishing.
I could go on and on and on about how much stuff got super crazy on the market because of whaling. but as long as you were on the right side of it from a standpoint of affixes and material farming; you could make a fortune off of it; although at some point they even started making that not as good with premium capsules and whatnot. Soon capsules are best in slot across the board, shop tickets begin trickling out; The balloon breasts jump to like 2 billion meseta lol. so much stuff starts happening around me that im like "man this game isnt like... pay to win but SUPER pay to conveinence". but the reality was starting to get a little bit bleaker by the end of pso2 era for F2P players.
To come full circle here with what drove me to rant and rave about this al;l is how the model has progressed in NGS. We lived in an age where there was no player shop access for f2p (unless you were sitting on a dragons hoard of unsed 3 days from base game), there were no rooms, even premium benefits were basically nil outside of a shop. AC scratches were getting pumped at at an all time high, no concerts, no real entertainment of any kind; just fuggin resol forest all day. and finally we have come to an age of content where sega finally makes skill trees not cost money to change; but just sells you the ability to skip playing the game. and not only that but effectively spawn in the best items in the game for AC. It just feels so unfortunate that the content has dried up; nothing feels anywhere near as creative or fun. the combat is inch deep; as are the skill trees. theres no crazy combos; no 20 piece combo craziness. just the same 4-5 moves; on repeat; with mostly some % buffs thrown in.
I havent even begun to mention the mile long list of other stuff missing that even base game had. Bas egame had some genunely fun and challeneging content. there were fun missions to run and it made sense to do them. NGS is just devoid of any of the charm of fun that made any of its previous iterations great; and all while gouging you for more and more.
I know this trails all over the place and has a rushed conclusion, but i was just reading the patch notes considering dipping my toes back into the water again after skipping stia; and im just honestly so turned off by it. nothing has changed; no major interesting content has dropped; and now they are going full on pay to win. I'll be honest; i think ill just stick to clementine server or something; because at least there, the devs actually give a shit about the game. I feel like im in an abusive relationship im just waking up to after 10 years os PSO or something. and with that i dont have much else to say tbh. i love this franchise, and i want to love this game; but SEGA really just cannot do right with this game.

2023.06.07 08:02 Nepentheus [PC]Some inputs count double (Map/Skills)

I have this rather annoying issue that sometimes, every gaming session, some keypresses are carried out twice.
For example:
Opening the map with M or TAB and then closing it with either closes the map and reopens it immediately. If I use ESC to close the map, sometimes the game menu is opened after the map is closed.
I have also noticed this issue when casting Caltrops I bound to 1. They are placed after another with only 1 keypress.
Has anybody else had issues of that sort or maybe found a way to prevent them?
Playing on Ultra (except textures on High) on Win10, RTX2080, I9 9900k, Logitech G810 keyboard. Drivers are up to date and this has not happened in other games or applications.

2023.06.07 08:02 Optimal_Earth_9859 What would you guys do to make more unique the tipical elemental based mana bar magic?

Context: This magic for my rpg exploration/combat videogame is based on the idea that everything is made of energy. This energy is normally called essentia and can be clasified intro 5 priomordial groups called aspects(FLAMMA, VENTUS, FLUCTUS, THUNDUR, TERHIA). Each thing made by matter is represented by a characteristic combination of aspects.
This energy can be divided into 3 groups based on where it is found:
Mages can cast spells using their soul essentia, but they are, and always will be, limited to the physical affinity of their aspect (meaning that a FLAMMA aspect soul can only cast plasma/fire based spells and so on). This disvantage can be removed by the use of arcane machinery that uses environmental energy. But the use, destruction or creation of this energy type generates a negative enviromental energy called FLUX;
Flux is the general term for a chaotic overflow of our magical energy "essence", often produced as a by-product of risky experiments or negligence in working with ambient energy. This type of enviromental energy, if not cleaned quickly, will break the chaos/control of the universe and consequently will generate unimaginable great catastrophes (dimensional cracks, living beings without any logic, instant deaths, areas incapable of using magic, etc). The flux normally manifests itself in the form of negative matter, either in a liquid or gaseous state (this is known as TAINT) and is what generates the "corruption" or rupture of order. The only way to remove the corruption is to transform the taint back into flux(Negative pure essentia) because normally the flux purifies itself after a long period of time.
The problem begins on the Soul Energy system, It's just the tipical elemental mana bar system with nearly infinite spell posibilities and idk how to I make it more unique Im looking for something that can be unique as a mechanic while being good lorewise too
I wont go in much detail about spell crafting and stuff cuz I made another post for it and it's not the point of this post.

2023.06.07 08:02 LimboMain2020 Void Visibility

So, for most people the Void is just a darkness in space but the Tenno can see the spiraling possibilities as we see in game.
There is also subpart of it, being the Rift, Veil, Void and Deep Void.
Orowyrm's only exist in Deep Void, and they are very much tangible beings.
So if a normal person could travel into the Void far enough (without going insane) it would be empty space until all of a sudden Orowyrm's just start showing up.
That sounds terrifying knowing they have just one life.

2023.06.07 08:02 Zahogan [FO3] Fallout 3 modding guide

Hello, are there any guides available that show you in detail how to mod Fallout 3? I am only looking for a guide that has game stability as its main focus, something like Viva New Vegas, The Best of Times or The Midnight Ride (preferrably one that also uses a mod manager like MO2 or Vortex), since I am aiming to play the game in its vanilla state to get all the achievements.
Also, before someone recommends to just install Tale of Two Wastelands, I already played it and finished it, and it's not what I'm looking for, since you can't unlock any achievements for FO3 on it.
Please, and thank you all in advance.

2023.06.07 08:02 princepsed Helping abuse victims, must be a lesbian seduction trick

My wife and I have, somehow, become very close friends with two different straight people in two different relationships where both of them are being abused. Her friend has a son, no job, no car, no license, and no way out. My friend works with me and his ex, has no car, no license, and is on parole. Both of them are experiencing similar levels of abuse and controlling, isolating, behavior only one is a male and the other is a female. We’ve offered both of them to stay at our house so they can be safe. The female friend’s ex has isolated her from her entire family, telling them she’s ruining her family for a “lesbian phase”. He’s also making gross comments about her and my wife. The male friend’s ex has told all of our close knit work place that their relationship ended because he fell in love with me, and now they all treat us weird. I don’t regret helping them and I don’t worry about my wife and her friend, and I’ve come to terms with coworkers not being friends, but it just sucks. It’s always the lesbians fault.
