LPT: if you love to zone out to a mindless, “freemium” game, but hate the nonstop ads- turn your phone to airplane mode while you play. 9/10 games- no interruptions and seem-less gameplay.

Unless the game requires a connection to work this works 99% of the time all the time

I do hate games with seems.

seamless

Like you cannot see a seam.

I dumb as hell, I don’t even know what this means.

A seam is where two things were joined together. Like the stitching that runs down the leg of your jeans. Seamless means there is no seam, another way of saying it's a smooth transition.

I feel like what I said would’ve had so much more of an impact if I had spelled it like this.

You should not have posted this because one of the minute details is incorrect as I deem from my armchair in my mom's basement. I am self-appointed expert in this matter. Obscure minute details are very important. It must be that you are dumb and posted this by accident, whereas I, I am very smart and have hereby corrected you. Please to provide me with accolades for my being so smart, the best way to be smart is by calling another person dumb.

I am dumb at best.

Your responses to the negative comments make me laugh and I will do this with people going forward. Points out the absurdity of the situation.

Yeah, but it does mean that you don't get access to online-only events, leaderboards, etc.

That is correct. I’ll edit to emphasize the “mindless” part. I’m talking about games I exclusively play on my 10-15 minute “fresh-air breaks”.

Edit- don’t think I can do that edit I said I’d edit..

I think you mean offline not mindless. They are still mindless if you are connected.

I feel like i see this on here once a day at least.

I’m sorry.

You can go into settings or use a VPN to disable connections directly. Means you get all of the benefits without losing connection to messages etc.

This used to work, but doesn't anymore. I think we can stop posting this tip every week.

I’m sorry. I’m dumb and stupid.

Seems like another not-so-pro tip

I apologize. I am dumb and thought I was smart.
