    Big Win

    So, I am at a new school this year Coaching Football. (I am the Running Backs coach and special teams coordinator). I followed my mentor to the school, as he is the head coach. The school hadn't won in 17 straight Varsity games until last night. Down 31-7 at half, we came back in the second half to win 50-38. On Homecoming. Big time win. Biggest comeback I've ever been a part of. On the left our Head Coaches son, also the QB, and on the right my son TJ(5)

    This is a pretty cool (physical) tabletop game. It's like a League of Legends knock off. There are different hero deck to choose from and build a deck of 5 heroes. They have a 3 lanes, minion, towers to push and even neutral monster/ dragons. The art is so pretty!

    It's October, which means that in 9 days we will be celebrating the 31st year running of National Coming Out Day here in the United States. A little history for you: "On Oct. 11, 1987, half a million people participated in the March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. It was the second such demonstration in our nation’s capital and resulted in the founding of a number of LGBTQ organizations, including the National Latino/a Gay & Lesbian Organization (LLEGÓ) and AT&T’s LGBTQ employee group, LEAGUE. The momentum continued four months after this extraordinary march as more than 100 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer activists from around the country gathered in Warrenton, Va., about 25 miles outside Washington, D.C. Recognizing that the LGBTQ community often reacted defensively to anti-LGBTQ actions, they came up with the idea of a national day to celebrate coming out and chose the anniversary of that second march on Washington to mark it. The originators of the idea were Rob Eichberg, a founder of the personal growth workshop, The Experience, and Jean O'Leary, then head of National Gay Rights Advocates. From this idea the National Coming Out Day was born. Each year on Oct. 11, National Coming Out Day continues to promote a safe world for LGBTQ individuals to live truthfully and openly." - The Human Rights Campaign, 2018 Coming out and living openly aren’t something you do once, or even for one year. It’s a journey that we make every single day of our lives. Every coming out experience is unique and must be navigated in the way most comfortable for the individual. Whether it's for the first time ever or the first time today, coming out can be an arduous journey. It is also a brave decision to live openly and authentically. To quote Sir Ian McKellen, "I’ve never met a gay person who regretted coming out – including myself. Life at last begins to make sense, when you are open and honest." --------------------------------------------------------------------------- A resource guide to coming out: Throughout the process of coming out and living ever more openly, you should always be in the driver’s seat about how, where, when and with whom you choose to be open. If you're wondering how to come out, this guide was designed to help you through that process in realistic and practical terms. It acknowledges that the experience of coming out and living openly covers the full spectrum of human emotion – from fear to euphoria. Whether coming out to friends, family, coworkers or healthcare providers, your approach and timing will be as unique as your own sense of identity. The guide covers a wide array of topics, such as coming out as your true identity, family and community (even going as far as specifying cultural differences within different guides,) religion and faith, within the workplace, and in a healthcare setting. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- On a very serious note, do not ever out someone. It is not something that you get to do, regardless of any religious background, or moral standings you may have. If someone isn't ready for that sort of stress, there can be terrible consequences. Even if that someone has already confided in you about their sexual orientation, it by no means gives you any right to further stating it to others.

    So there are gonna be several links in this post directing you to other places. I don't think it entirely necessary to repeat everything someone else has already written. That said, I'll be giving a sort of high level overview of things that are changing and stuff you should (or shouldn't) do before you get started. First things first. If you already own Destiny 2, LINK YOUR ACCOUNT! Destiny 2 is moving away from Battle.net launcher and once it is gone it is gone for good. If you haven't linked your account your characters, currency, and progress from you account goes does with it. An FAQ about how this is gonna work is included in that link. Moving on. If you want some insight into what's coming in Shadowkeep from the Bungie team, it's probably worthwhile to check out this ViDoc. Along with that, you should probably check out their last TWAB (This Week At Bungie) before the release next week. Alright, let's get to some of the questions. Q: What do I need to do before launch? A: Not much really. Paul Tassi at Forbes makes several suggestions here. I mostly echo that post. Since launch is so close unless you really want to grind there isn't a lot that I'd suggest pushing for. Be sure to do the things below. Link your account Finish the campaign Dismantle your Eververse gear (and most other gear as well) Q: If I don't buy Shadowkeep, will I still be able to play with people who own it? A: The short answer is yes. If you are F2P or someone that bought Forsaken, this is the best answer. Q: My power level is like 200. How will I catch up? A: Don't worry about it! If you are one of the people who didn't hit the gear cap of 750 or max level, it doesn't matter. You'll be boosted to 750 with Shadowkeep's launch and the level up system is going away. Q: What if I already bought Forsaken but didn't buy the annual pass. Do I still need to buy it since it is all bundled together now? A: If you already purchased Forsaken but didn't buy the annual pass, worry not! The annual pass is now included for anyone that purchased Forsaken. Q: Alright Prince, you've made a good case for me playing the game but what about the wonky ass story? A: Overall, this is where Bungie has struggled most but that doesn't mean the story is bad. Honestly, it's really good and they are getting better at telling it. That said, some people outside of the game are better at putting it all together in an easy way to follow. My name is Byf and Myelin Games do a great job at filling in the gaps in the story that aren't directly told in the game. If you are completely new to Destiny 2, this recap of the Destiny lore is a worthwhile watch (you don't have to watch it all at once)! That covers most of the big questions that I've seen, but if you folks have more feel free to reply to this post or hit me up on Discord. Thanks for reading!

    TFT is not the tie breaker as per discussion with @MadCast: Mike the tie breaker will be Counter strike best of 30 as a normal ranked match since TFT is an offshoot of League of Legends.

    I've been thinking over the past few days of an idea that I've had and I recently ran it by @MadCast: Support Welfare to see what he thought and I would just like to bring it up to see if it garners enough interest to put some thought or actions in motion. At the core, I've always wanted to help out this community in other ways than donating towards the operating costs and giving my time and / or thoughts on matters. SO - Would there be interest in setting up a MCG community box with excess game codes and some sort of accessible PayPal (or other) account that we can donate funds to charitably to help people that may be going through a difficult time to be able to play an expansion / relatively cheap new game? There are a lot of kinks to work out and I don't even know if it's possible. I'm throwing this out there to see if something sticks. I've heard a lot of situations where myself and others were going to hop on a game but the one member of our party couldn't afford it right now and I wanted to alleviate situations like this. Possibly designate a secretary or two over it , have some kind of vote to ensure people are validly using the funds (privately of course, no need to shame someone publicly about financial situations). If we were to kickstart this, I'd be willing to do some sort of matching donation to get us a solid foundation. Thoughts / Ideas / Concerns?

    So as most of you already know, I kinda shoot off the cuff on these things so if I ramble a bit please forgive me. With the launch of Shadowkeep we'll be taking another dive into Destiny 2 as a community by featuring it as our Featured GOTM. While this isn't an official launch of a new "main game" branch, I do plan to put in a bit of effort to make things grow as I expect there will be renewed interest in the game. If you are wondering why I expect to see renewed interest you haven't been paying attention Destiny 2 is going free-to-play on the October 1st and moving over to Steam. Obviously this is gonna bring a lot of new players, and some of the old players back. However, If you played D2 back in the beginning your reaction might be "meh". Even as a hardcore D2 player, I wouldn't blame you. It was an okay campaign and then a mediocre grind. If that burned turned you off, I get it. That said the game is much better today. That's not just me saying it either. Since the launch of Destiny Forsaken, several outlets have said much of the same: Business Insider Polygon PC Gamer I don't expect positive words and a few good reviews to convince you to join up again, but if you haven't tried or you found something about it compelling the last time you played Shadowkeep will be a great time to jump back in. I'll be around the evening of launch from about 7pm Eastern til 11pm (or close to it) to help answer any questions, get people invited to the clan (or you can go here), and to help folks learn the ropes. In the mean time, feel free to pre-load the game now. It is a hefty 73gb download so best to get started ahead of time. Also, I'll be following this post with an FAQ post to talk about what things you should to do prepare as well as what's coming next. Thanks all! P.S. TELL YOUR FRIENDS!

    What if we eliminated the money side of it and instead of directly having someone ask we could have some sort of "wishlist" with a game or expansion request and people could buy and donate codes and just loosely have someone control it in the odd scenario that someone would act in bad faith, although I wouldn't see that as a problem. Something similar to those wedding gift registry things where we have a list of what we have and what someone possibly wants. Obviously with a limited amount of withdrawals, etc.

    We have decided to relinquish Tera from the Rotating Game Mode early, and we will discuss further the future comings of Rotating Game Mode down the road. I apologize to the active players of the game, but I hope to see continuation on your own.

    Tabletop Simulator

    I noticed Madcast had a tabletop section but I never saw anybody playing anything on the discord. I was wondering if anybody had tabletop simulator on Steam and wanted to setup board games, card games, even some poker if we had enough people. I am part of a family who are huge fans of board games; however, they don't love the long and strategic games like Risk or Settlers of Catan. If we had a group that had tabletop simulator and wanted to get on once a week or even once a month to get a long game going I think that would be awesome. I am fairly new to most of the long games but I would love to learn and set something up.
