When the EU collapsed under its own weight and bureaucracy, the UK will be lucky it got out early.

If anything the EU bureaucracy is an example of effective administration, in-so-far as democracy can be effective.

Is that why the EU constantly forces its members to production of the standards of Germany? There's too many unnecessary and undemocratic measures that were passed by unelected technocrats and bureaucrats. The UK voted no on over 50 referendums that were overturned by the EU. How is that democratic?

And how is sexual aggression a better tool to show this than brutal beatings, torture, ect.? That is more what I am asking. That is what editors will ask when reading your book. Again, looking at Mistborn, keep in mind that brutal beatings occur around the rebel and he does nothing, so a more egregious act (rape of a teenager) must take place for his sudden change from "watch and wait" to "kill the bastards and start a war" to make sense.

Using sexual violence as shorthand for evil (or obesity, wearing black, twirling mustaches, ect.) is sloppy writing. Using sexual violence (or the threat of it) when other means work more readily or believably is also sloppy writing. That you have these doubts and are seeking reassurance should be a clue that perhaps something in this narrative turn is weak and will cause problems. A well written story can pull off about anything, including a goat eating a magic boot being crucial to a plot (Kill the Farm Boy) or rape of a prisoner causing a once loyal lieutenant to have her faith in her leader/lover shattered (The Liveship Traders series).

That's just not true...

Yes, they're hypocrites. As soon as they gain power, they oppress speech. Which is why I dislike Nazis as much as I dislike any other violent, censorious scum.

Nazis are not welcome in free speech rallies, or at least they're not in the rallies I attend.

If there are Nazis, I get out. Because fuck 'em.

Whoever this slasher dude is aside, supporting Alex Jones is absolutely not okay. I don’t know what “research” Thorin thinks he did but Alex Jones is a disgusting and vile human being. Not only does he advertise fake products to his TV audience, he unironically thinks 9/11 was an inside job, that Sandy Hook and the Boston Marathon bombings were fabricated by the government, and went out of his way to harass the parents who lost their children at the school shooting.

I’m not sure where you can get off thinking this man is a role model for other people but that is seriously fucked

No

Whoa, easy there buddy. They're just fake internet points. Let me try to help you out here:

  1. Starcraft 2's map editor is, from what I understand, garbage compared to WC3s. I haven't used it personally, but this is what I have heard from creators.

  2. SC2s custom game sorting algorithm is trash and tends to promote 3-5 games to the top of the list, basically destroying discoverability for new maps.

  3. This one may not be as relevant, but Blizzard added a big fat disclaimer in the SC2 map editor that they own the rights to absolutely everything you do using their map editor. This is entirely understandable after DotA got away from them, but still shitty for the creators.

So, while your comment isn't wrong, it sort of glazes right over the fact that the classic WC3 custom maps we all know and love haven't been (or can't be) recreated faithfully using the tools we currently have access to.

SC2 editor is not at all garbage compared to wc3, it's just A LOT harder to use. But it has the same versatility and ceiling.

Original Poster1 point · 1 month ago

True, and I know HotS uses a modified version of the SC2 engine, but HotS just "feels" better. They've also put a lot of nice art in lately especially with the Alterac event. Each new HotS map brings a potential pool of all new art assets that could also carry over to custom games. They already play around with this in their weekly brawls.

The groundwork is there for some serious custom games between all of the Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo, and Overwatch buildings/characters/terrain that are already in the game.

Edit: For the record - definitely didn't downvote. Some people are shit I guess.

How does hots "feel" better? You might enjoy one game over the other, but SC2 has a much better response than HOTS... I'm sorry if you're still traumatized by not being able to get out of gold league :/. Some games are hard huh.

Funny you should mention that because there was a case where EMS refused to help a transgender woman after they removed her pants and found out she was trans which resulted in her death.

I mean, a person acting so - would face "extended" legal culpability... I'm guessing that particular EMS went to prison for quite some time?

I mean, there's no reason why you shouldn't let your 14 year old play COD multiplayer with his/her friends. Be a responsible parent, take an interest, get to know your kids hobbies, and make calls accordingly. Going by the label on the box is the lowest amount of interest possible, outside of just straight up buying it without looking at the box.

Did you even read the post ? lmao

Well sure but getting a boost of a few thousand Taiwanese viewers because their hometown hero is having the run of his career probably played a pretty big role.

No... the average viewers of this event was literally 10k+ higher than the last. It was insane.

Why is it always sc2 that needs to fund this. Seatstory never needs to be on the front page of hearthstone begging for money.

Because it's easier to get sponsors for Seatstory than HSC? HSC probably gets fewer viewers, less sponsor interest, and costs more to run.
