Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

@  fourteenwings : (23 February 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Is there something about the Shoutbox that just means we get politics taking over the thing at least once a week?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2021 - 08:26 AM)

At least your government is willing to talk about the collapsing medicare system. In quebec, their ignoring it in favour of talking about language again! Oh, and unconstitutionally denying access to eduction.

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:52 AM)

At least here in my home province of Ontario we have a conservative gov't who doesn't want to cuz $$$$, but the argument is that they'll end up paying in medical care anyways for those sick people so why not?

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:51 AM)

We have paid sick leave here in Canada too, but it's not very much and not everyone has it. So we're trying to get the gov't to extend it, and give it to everyone.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:23 AM)

The only reason people still go to work despite being sick is because they feel emotionally obliged to serve their employer.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Some people abuse the system by somehow getting sick with a different plague every five weeks.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Those six weeks are out of the employer's pocket by legal mandate. If you're still sick after those six weeks, the health insurance company takes over the payment.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:19 AM)

That's the good thing in Germany - we have legally mandated paid sick days. Six weeks (!) for a single cause (consecutive or recurring, as long as it's the same cause; reinfections long after the fact don't count), Everytime the employee gets sick with a new cause, another six weeks start.

@  tigerhawk : (22 February 2021 - 04:48 PM)

That's how my family got sick, my brothers a teacher, he has a class for expelled students, they gave full attendance these past few lockdowns out of sheer boredom, they can turn in sick and break isolation and he nor the other staff, who also got sick, couldn't do anything about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 February 2021 - 03:03 PM)

Yeah, pretty sure the only reason people don't stay home when they're sick is that the vast majority of society lives paycheque to paycheque, and they can't afford even one missed day of work.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 February 2021 - 11:27 AM)

That's unfortunate... I know masks can be annoying, but I think not being able to breath comfortably for a while is better than actually having the virus and not being able to breath at all. bUt Oh, pEoPLe dOn'T bELiVe ThE dAmN vIrUs Is rEaL

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2021 - 08:28 AM)

Hahahaha! Oh, you're serious. Yeah, no one is going to do that. Far too many are in positions where they simply cannot afford the time off, and most of the rest are the kind who won't wear the mask in a global pandemic, never mind when they alone have the sniffles.

@  Shockwave 75 : (22 February 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I just hope a take-away from this will be for people to stay home when they're sick, and if they have to go out, wear a mask so as not to spread their illness.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 February 2021 - 08:25 PM)

I think it's mostly the masking that's kept the flu season down so much, and that's unlikely to be kept up for that long. I'm sure there'll be some people who keep wearing masks for years after this, but I suspect a larger number are anticipating people able to toss them once vaccinations are complete.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2021 - 05:27 PM)

Same in canada. Doctors report it to be basically non-existant. I kinda hope they keep some stuff up after everyone is vaccinated. Like hand sanitizer at store entrances, and actually cleaning the shopping carts.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 05:17 PM)

On the plus side cold and flu cases are down 80% this winter thanks to lockdowns, or at least that's the case in the UK.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (15 February 2021 - 04:07 PM)

Then we got Ultra Magnus, Fortress Maximus, Dai Atlas, Megatron, Galvatron, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp and Banzai-Tron in Alternity...

@  Sabrblade : (15 February 2021 - 12:04 PM)

Heh, that new Binaltech comic that Ichikawa wrote for one of the Japanese Generations books even had the other Dinobots make fun of Grimlock for his "Autobot Car" body.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 February 2021 - 12:03 PM)

They got that rescue bot grimlock that turns into a motorcycle. That's... pretty neat...

@  Otaku : (15 February 2021 - 11:35 AM)

Just to make Grimlock feel more "wrong", they even highlight how his character just seems ill-suited for a sports car alternate mode in his own backstory.  Hindsight is 20/20, so I now wish they'd made a T-rex that transformed into a sportscar.  Still probably would have been as much or more of a pain to transform, but at least it'd feel more like Grimlock. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Some Alternators were fine, then you have Grimlock/Wheeljack, with three transformers worth of fiddly and a giant buttflap.

@  Telly : (13 February 2021 - 01:49 AM)

thats the main reason i got rid of my alternators. too much of a pain to transform

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:13 AM)

Didn't use a hammer, but feeling a little less sentimental.

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:12 AM)

(The video I found to get some hints had alcohol and a hammer, and by the time I was done, I understood why.)

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:11 AM)

I posted something about feeling all sentimental when I transformed alternators Smokescreen a few days ago...and tonight I tried transforming Grimlock.

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:10 AM)

Decided to rebuild Nova what with the new Atomica skin. That's a booty that cannot be denied!

 

Comes in Three Flavors!

 

 

 

 

 

Gotta say I'm liking Nova a lot more than I did when I first tried her out.  Dunno if she got an overhaul since then or if I've just gotten better at Warframe.  Her Antimatter Drop is a little tricky to control, but I can see building around Null Star/Molecular Prime as a way of controlling crowds.  Teleportation is kind of a hoot as well, though I don't know how useful it would be in non-open areas.

 

She's also super nimble, which fits my play style well.

I've very much become a Nova main. I had to save back the platinum for the Atomica skin in between the announcement and the release. = ] And now I've got that Tachyon helmet and they look so good together....

 

Other than Molecular Prime, no one of her abilities is spectacular, and it's hard to land on a build where all of them are useful at once. Like, Narrow Minded is really a necessity for Null Star and Molecular Prime, but cripples Wormhole, and Null Star is pretty self-defeating without Molecular Fission, and then you need some power strength for Molecular Prime's slow to jump from barely noticeable to basically shutting down the map, and Antimatter Drop is basically unaffected by anything but needs a decent amount of efficiency to be practical, so there are a lot of ways to lean all into one or two abilities at a time but not a lot of builds that use all four. I had been playing her with maxed duration and 144% power strength, to get the most out of Null Star and Molecular Prime while just ignoring the other abilities, but it's not a very fun way to play. 

 

After the durability changes and then Scarlet Spear making it relatively easy for me to get a full set of Arcane Guardian, I've put a little less into her Duration, usually don't have any power strength mods, and still have her range limited, but have Escape Velocity on so that I get a speed boost from using portals. It starts at 7s but scales with duration, so the ability augment is itself only really useful if you do have at least 200% duration on. But I can still get that much along with 60% efficiency from Fleeting Expertise, keep Molecular Fission, and even squeeze in Umbral Intensify if I need it. It's not really an optimal build, but it's fun because I get to use everything. 

 

Wormhole is still an energy hog, but I can drop one here and there when I want to refresh my speed boost while also using it for its mobility purposes, and even at 33% range it's still a pretty decent hop in most interior maps. And I tend to pump Antimatter Drop with my melee, since at least with Primed Reach on, I can get a decent amount of damage into the orb just by casting it in the direction of a mob and starting to hack and slash in that direction. Unlike shooting at it, it doesn't really require me to pay a lot of attention to what the orb is doing that way, and just ends up being a periodic damage pulse that doesn't otherwise interrupt my meleeing. 


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Old School RuneScape has a few hardcore modes that limit how you can interact with other players and the game itself, with the most intense one called Ultimate Ironman limiting you to your 27 inventory slots and 11 equipment slots. You can't even use banks or even keep any items when you die.

 

Anyways I think OSRS needs to go one more, Extreme Ironman, where you can't even play the damn game.

There's actually a popular YouTuber who's doing the hardcore Ultimate Ironman Mode in OSRS while ALSO limiting himself to one part of the game world so he can do what's called the Theatre of Blood, probably one of the hardest challenges in the game.

 

To put it simply: in the Theatre of Blood, you have to fight six bosses.

 

The bosses are ranked as the strongest, third strongest, fifth strongest, sixth strongest, seventh strongest, eighth strongest, eleventh strongest, and thirteenth strongest monsters in the game.

 

There's uh more than six rankings because the final boss has three forms with different levels, with their final form being level 1520.
