  1. Kyen-Keil, The Forest World

    And to really hammer home how despondent Remn is in Verona, it took me until halfway through Beer 3 this evening to think of the one question Remn didn't ask Jeffrey. "Can you tell me my make and model?"
  2. Kyen-Keil, The Forest World

    @MadCast: VoShay So, so many times did I think about taking the Calm spell, which removes fear, except we never encountered Fear until last night.

    Just to reaffirm, the plan is 11aPST/2pEST tomorrow (12/23) Bring your chops, nerds.
  4. PATCH NOTES

    It's nice not having to deal with an insurmountable death plague upon the enemy Nazeebo hitting 20. 5's I didn't notice it much, because we could be aware of it. Has really helped the HL sitch though.
  5. New HoTS player here.

    Perfect time to pick up this game. Pay close attention to the minimap indicators for where the next objective will be. Train yourself to internalize this information so you are not caught unprepared. What heroes have you played so far, and have you particularly enjoyed any of them?
  6. Kyen-Keil, The Forest World

    There's a small, easily ignored part of me that has empathy for Tormor. He's a bad dude, but he's also going to face such disproportionate wrath that Mammon himself will avert his eyes. I encourage Ian and Tai to ponder just how far a joint can be hyper extended. Remn is keen on offering lessons in experimental anatomy to ease the dealmaking process. What have you made me into

    Also, remember that I wanted to destroy the body of the dragon, not form a bloated caravan for easy sacking, nor did I want to proliferate these resources into a volatile world.

  10. Anyone excited for this weeks patch?

    Just had a read of the final notes. I really like the objective indicator and timer changes. Boiling out a bit of the RNG might make for more rote 5 man team play, but a reduction in randomness makes communication a bit less important for non-5 ranked play. Over enough games, this is a step toward sorting the playerbase a bit better. The rotation is really good right now. I won't miss Volskaya for a few months, even though I really like the map. People are so reticent to get into the Mech. The stealth rework doesn't really touch me that much. I think it'll work well for player retention.

    Remn in about 3 sessions.

  13. EA Sets A New Record (Not A Good One)

    538 projects that EA's 8.5% stockloss for their ongoing series of gaffes is about 3.1 billion. Disney bought the Star Wars IP for 4 billion. Looks like optics still matter for some entities.

    It's dishonest when the official and fan defense is that they are cosmetic items, and that it isn't intrusive to gameplay. If your in-game events are shortened in order to facilitate more purchases I would call that intrusive to gameplay. Maybe not the gameplay that counts for KDA or W/L ratios, but I would argue that style mechanics can be just as important to someone as the competitive mechanics. I think that, given the choice (which is what EA and Activision keep pivoting to in their PR: Player Choice) players would choose to pay an acceptable fee for further customization options rather than be constantly opening loot boxes full of trash and accumulating minuscule amounts of currency. To go off my prior point, say you really wanted that Witch Mercy skin that is available ONLY during Halloween. Unless you have enough banked currency (3000) to afford it outright or can accumulate enough during the event, your only resort is to buy "chances" to get the skin from loot boxes. Furthermore, every time you rank up, you are forced to go to a screen with a store button. They use the same psychological inducements as gambling while avoiding being classified as gambling. That, to me, is dishonest, no matter if they are selling raw power or a cosmetic option.

    Overwatch is not lily white either. If they charged a nominal fee for each skin, whatever. Instead, they timelock availability (Halloween was 2 weeks long, if I recall correctly) and gate the skins behind a wall of randomness. That's unscrupulous.
