Fake news, no shinobi.

Turns out the President set the whole thing up as a publicity stunt. Very rude.

The ninjas will go away, it will be fine.

@  Paladin : (13 August 2020 - 08:02 PM)

listen; i'm sure there were very fine ninjas on both sides.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 August 2020 - 07:50 PM)

My thoughts and prayers go out to the ninjas.

@  Cybersnark : (13 August 2020 - 06:36 PM)

Can we just let them have him?

@  Bass X0 : (13 August 2020 - 06:18 PM)

The president has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:08 PM)

At first, I obviously thought I was correct.  Then I thought perhaps the spelling had changed for some reason.  Copyright/trademark law is weird, ya know?  Now I just accept I goofed. XD

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:07 PM)

See, that one directly applies to me.  Apparently, I'd been misreading and mispronouncing it wrong for over 30 years... and I still slip and do it the wrong way much of the time.

Hey, do you have any grapes?

@  Otaku : (11 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

I dunno... it sounds kind of quackers to me.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 August 2020 - 05:17 PM)

That would be nice....

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 August 2020 - 04:36 PM)

I wish I could just sit by a pond and watch ducks for a while.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 August 2020 - 03:52 AM)

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 August 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Crisis of Corona.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 06:16 PM)

Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

'member Pepperidge Farm?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

Before the 'member berries there was Pepperidge farm. Pepperidge farm remembers.

I never felt th ended to be elite either, which is why the AQPS whatever the hell they are now finally annoyed me.

Make war
Make raids
Make weekend events

When the hell do I have time to play for me? They were always holding things over you. Then people, and sorry if you’re here, Farst and a few others were like hugging cheerleaders. “Cmon guys, we are doing super great but we need to push harder”. Stfu. Let people play the game and have fun. It felt more like work than a carefree game that I spent waaaay to much money on.

Yeah, I'm taking this weekend off.  I could really use the resources: it is so hard to grind enough for the pricier upgrades - who wants to save those for last? - so I haven't been worried about earning Energon-Z for over a month... 'cause I ain't spending any Energon-Z.

 

Who couldn't use some more Shards for Crystals... but I can't tell if I'd be more frustrated by Dupes or by pulling actual characters, when the queue for the Lab (even with two slots) is so massive.  Oh, and to upgrade I've got to slave away for enough Energon. ¬_¬  The Weekend Event actually looks like it might not be too bad of a grind... but I just need the time off from the game.  I'll pop in quick tomorrow evening because Overlord should finish backing in the Combiner oven, well, not all the way finished, but another level, then pop him back in and not sign in the rest of the weekend.

I am definitely feeling the crunch for resources with this last set of upgrades. I have long since burned through all of my inventory.

I am quite low on alloy, but still have an insane amount of energon in my inventory. Don't have much trouble with my upgrades either and only have to take from the inventory when 2 upgrades in a row get finished during an event. On the other hand, I'm nearly forced by that to farm for alloy instead of XP after we finish team events early. And I've actually been playing less lately, partially because of real life, partially because of the mentioned change in the playing style, and partially because of becoming effective enough to finish elimination mode in just first 24 hours by taking 5-bot squads to z13 as much as possible. If anybody is interested, I can bring a 40 min long video with 16 z13 battles in that mode. My base is actually pretty close to maxed as well, only 1 laser turret, mines, harvesters and the scanner left to upgrade.

 

Haven't pulled many new bots in the last several events. 4-star crystals were dupes, this event was kind of good with 3-star Star Saber and Tigerhawk, the previous one gave absolutely nothing and the one before it contained Smokescreen and Skydive (also 3-star). I'm also trying to upgrade my lower level 4-star characters to level 50 before Swindle hits 60, so far got Triggerhappy, Blast Off and Long Haul through the lab.

I actually hit level 90, which I think is the current maximum, so I got two more 4 star crystals. One of which, was a duplicate, but the other was a four star Warpath! I have him on my z13 leveling squad now and hopefully will have him ready for war squad within a month or two.

I'm half way into level 85 now. 

 

My free crystal this morning gave me a 4* Vortex, which was a dupe, but I'm getting ever closer to another 5* crystal so any 4* dupe is a blessing right now... especially from a free crystal.

Honestly not too excited about the event.  Part of it is I'm just burned out on Earth Wars lately; again, I'm in one of those awkward places where everything requires a bunch of Energon (base upgrades, swapping Power Cores, Lab time, etc.) but even taking on the highest Zone I can manage, I'll usually only clear 300,000 Energon e.g. the new minimum.  So, to get what I need per major upgrade for the base, it means not just burning through all 50 Fuel Cells but doing so 2 to 3 times... more, if I'm the one who gets raided while saving up.  Not awful, but if I'm not feeling it, this doesn't help.  Even trying to take a "vacation" from the game, but keep my Lab slots full, I'll need to grind for 10-20 minutes to get the next bot ready.  That'd be really good... if I was an "active" player and not trying to rest. XP

 

Sorry for the familiar rant, but it is quickly becoming my baseline again.  I should be thrilled because Brake-Neck is one of my better 'cons, he's getting some improvements across the board, he's getting a 5-Star, and I'm edging ever closer to my next 5-Star.  I'm really tempted to try for Brake-Neck.  I seem to have a knack for pulling them; once I start getting Crystals that can contain them, I usually get a Brake-Neck long after.

I am going to be within striking distance the next time they have a five star event. I am going to try for Optimus Prime, as I have a 1 in 3 chance of getting him. My other two bot in that group are Wheeljack and skyburst. So I either get Prime and get my first four star combiner, or I get my first five star gunner or another five star Medic.
