  1. This is very similar to one of the fun modes I ran at my last TFT event, where I used a List Randomizer to assign everyone a class/origin. It was fun, but I had less strict stipulations in regards to what is on your field. If you got Sorcerer, you could have 3 champions out as long as 2 of them (majority) were sorcerers. This made it more manageable and kept it a bit more balanced because people could get a second buff sooner and have a viable comp.
  2. This was a lot of fun last time, so I'm hosting another event for TeamFight Tactics on Friday, July 26, at 7pm EST. Here's a refresher on the challenges we will be rotating through: NATURAL SELECTION: All of the origins & classes that have at least 5 different champions are randomly rolled and assigned to everyone before the game starts. At least half of your team must be made up of this origin or class at any time. The ruling officially begins during the second carousel round so that you have time top save up money and prepare. EMPTY POCKETS: As the name suggests, no one can have any items equipped. Again, this will kick in at the second carousel, and you will be expected to sell anyone you get in the carousels during the game and not use their items. Single spatulas are allowed on individual champions for the memes. BLACKLISTED: Everyone names a different champion, and those 8 champions are banned from being on anyone's team for the entire game. LATE BLOOMER: You're not allowed to buy/build any 2-star champions until after the 3rd carousel. If you have any other ideas on fun challenges let me know. See you Friday!
  3. Just wanted to share this here as a reference for anyone who might need it.
  4. I work until 9 but I'll see if I can't stop by afterwards~

  7. OVERCOOKED is free on the Epic Games launcher!
  8. @MadCast: Vyoletta I can't highlight the quote, but I must apologize for my wording and that it felt like I was minimizing the struggles of transsexuals. I did not mean to imply that I think all trans people are simply confused and that breaking down certain archaic parts of society would simply fix them all. I absolutely understand that body dysmorphia and other similar mental illnesses can be crippling and that there are people who are simply born "wrong" and can not ever feel comfortable in their biological body. My intention was to make a point in regards to the "popularity" of being transsexual in recent years, and how a majority of teens are already so confused and have no idea what kind of person they are or want to be. Allowing a 13-year-old to go off and get a major body-altering surgery that may have many permanent side effects is absolutely absurd. I believe there should be age limits on such things, or at the very least a major psychological evaluation before you can get a sex alteration surgery. Perhaps such laws already exist in certain places and I'm simply unaware, but if I have to wait until I'm 30 and go through half a dozen specialist appointments before I can have my tubes tied, I see no reason why minors should be allowed to make monumental decisions so flippantly. In regards to the generally abhorrent use of offensive language in "gaming culture", I'm just saddened at the complete disregard that people show each other. I also took a chance a while back and asked someone why they would think that saying "go kill yourself" was a normal thing to say to someone, and they didn't really have a response. I remember ranting a bit at them and how they should have more respect for another human being instead of pretending that words have absolutely no meaning. I didn't play for weeks afterwards because I was so upset by the fact that there were countless others casually going around and saying "kill yourself" to teammates that were most likely teens or young adults, the most vulnerable age group to mental illness, and worrying about how many of them would be negatively affected. I also know of some people who basically accepted the use of that language and stopped reporting others because "what's the point?" I can't stand such a defeatist attitude and I hope that everyone in MadCast will strive to be above the use of such shameful language, as well as be a positive example by working to remove anyone that does. I think that Oreo already did a great job of making the point that dismissing offensive terms as meaningless in the context of playing games is ridiculous, but just for some further education on the matter I'd like to share this thread with the hopes that everyone can get a deeper understanding behind why using that kind of language is unacceptable.
  9. Lol that is pretty much exactly what we have already. Definitely no problem with sticking to it if there isn't a better deal, thanks Jiggles.
  10. Ok so my husband currently has two 2TB Seagate portable hard drives that we use for game storage on our PS4 and Xbox. He recently got the Xbox Ultimate Pass thing and now needs a lot more room to download games, so I'm wondering if anyone has a suggestion for any other decent brands or any special sales going on for the holiday. He thinks he needs a 5TB but honestly another 2 or 3 would be plenty in my budgeted opinion. If you can find anything bigger under $100 I'd love to hear about it.
  11. I don't really have a wealth of knowledge, but I've loved fun car shows like Top Gear. As far as cars, I tend to like sleeker sports cars like the Fiat Spider and most Porsche models.
  12. If I might chip in here, I agree to an extent with this. I strongly believe that, for the most part, gender is a social construct that is simply used to try and keep people in tidy boxes. I don't see any need for clothes to be divided into men and women, or for the colors pink and blue to be used for nearly everything related to baby showers and newborns. I don't care for the belief that boys shouldn't cry, or that female emotions are always over-complicated. However, I also tend to think that most people who identify as trans may simply be confused or influenced by these very social constructs. This comes from personal experience, as I used to think I was a trans female-to-male in high school when I liked video games and cargo pants and hated pink flowers and wearing dresses. Obviously I now know that I don't need to give a flying fuck what "society" thinks and I dress and talk the way I want to even if it means I come off as being butch or something. That does not mean that I am against transsexual people or think that they're stupid. I support everyone's happiness and believe you should be allowed to do whatever you want to do (within reason) to live a happy comfortable life, but there are still certain aspects of society that I feel are negatively impacted because they rely on the rigidity of logic and don't care for your feelings. I think that your biological sex should be referenced in regards to anything that is either: A - divided by standardized gender (since one reason divisions still exist in major sports is due to biology), or B - directly related to the mechanics of your physical sex, such as medical purposes or the type of bathroom facilities you need Outside of those types of situations, I don't care what you want me to call you as long as you're a decent human being and we can respect each other.
  13. THIS THREAD~
  14. After seeing how successful Teamfight Tactics has been so far in the community, I've come up with a few fun challenge modes and I'd like to have a community day to try them out! I'll be organizing this event starting at 1PM EST on Sunday, July 7th. So far the different challenges I've come up with are: ORIGIN/CLASS CHALLENGE: All of the origins & classes that have at least 5 different champions are randomly rolled and assigned to everyone before the game starts. At least half of your team must be made up of this origin or class at any time. The ruling officially begins during the second carousel round so that you have time top save up money and prepare. NO ITEM CHALLENGE: As the name suggests, no one can have any items equipped. Again, this will kick in at the second carousel, and you will be expected to sell anyone you get in the carousel during the game and not use their item. RANGE vs MELEE: Your entire team can only be made up of one or the other from the very start, but the choice is up to you and you can change at any time. I have made a cheat sheet for reference that I can sort according to which challenge we are doing. If you have any other ideas for challenges I'd love to hear them!
