As someone who probably would have turned out to be an incel if I didn't have /r/Niceguys or /r/IAmVeryIgnored when I was a late teen to show me the bullshit of that way of thinking, I have a bit of a different perspective.

Incels aren't inherently ugly faced people. I know they like to circlejerk about facial bone structure and jawlines and stuff, but at the end of the day a lot of the stuff they complain about are also features of Justin Bieber or Keanu Reeves, and regardless of what you think of those dudes they definitely get around.

Incels are just dudes too lazy to actually make an effort to better themselves and actually aim for girls in the first place. And then they take out that frustration on women.

And because the internet is a place where you can find the one other person who thinks all geese should be exterminated with laser weapons and then you convince each other that the rest of the world is wrong, they've built this tight knit community where they blame everyobe except themselves.

Weirdly, in my opinion, everyone calling them ugly losers is actually validating their weird culture and mental problems.

The main issue isn't how they look on the outside, it's that they're rotten inside. They are bad people to the core, some of them are even dangerous.

It's not really a matter of agreeing or disagreeing though. In anthropology, which is the study of humans (including both culture and biology), gender does not equal sex. It's not a matter of being a PC SJW, it's science. Sex and gender are not the same thing.

Summoning arcane energize !

it's great for popping on tankier enemies like Ancients so you can just get them out of the way and mow down the rest of them without having to use your full ultimate

Ballistic Battery is 25 energy and needs to be charged up and deals far less damage than Regulators, your full ultimate is also 25 energy + 15 energy per second and in that second you can devastate an Ancient.

Ballistic Battery with optimal strength (20%) deals 1920 damage IF you fully charge. Peacemaker with 20% strength and only Hornet Strike and 1 90% elemental damage mod (without critting) deals 950 damage PER SHOT and fire rate is 14.8 rounds per second. With multishots and 60% fire rate from Lethal Torrent and Barrel Diffusion that is 40.000 damage in a second.

Ballistic Battery only benefits from elemental and critical damage mods (not sure about crit chance it has) so that is 3648 damage IF fully charged VS 40.000 damage per second.

Even Peacemaker takes seconds to kill an Ancient in high levels so I doubt you can pop tankier enemies with it. You need to cast it 10 times to even reach damage of 1 second of Peacemaker.

Where does the 20% strength come from ? Doesn't peacemaker scale with strength ?

Peacemaker has a 50% damage increase and Power Strength increases that, but it adds over other damage increases from Hornet Strike (so with maxed Hornet Strike is 50% + 220%).

Power Strength increases that 50% and that only so what you get from Power Strength is halved and even with 200% power strength, you only get 50% more damage increase that is added over already ridiculous increase Hornet Strike gives.

Base Damage × (1 + 1.5 × (1 + Strength Mods) + Damage Mods) × (1 + Elemental Mods)

Is the formula of Peacemaker's damage, that highlighted area is effect of Power Strength. So basically, Power Strength has little to no effect compared to modding your Regulators.

20% is the amount Shatter Shield needs to reach 95% reduction cap (80% + 16% = 96% that is capped at 95%) and optimal Power Strength you can put on Mesa.

Basically, you build Mesa for survival and energy, while build Regulators for damage.

Civil debate and anti-fa don't fit together though. From where I see it anti-fa is a bunch of kids who think they can get violent because they defend the "greater morale values". In the end they are as bad as the ones they pretend to fight, same methods but on the complete opposite side when it comes to idea. 2 faces of the same coin if you will.

3 points · 16 days ago · edited 16 days ago

Antifa isn't a group, its everyone that takes action against the rise of fascism. And sometimes it's local alliances between organisations and individuals opposing fascism.

Attacking fascists physically isn't the first response by antifascists, but researching the structures and attacks of local fascists and informing the public on that. Ideally, nothing more would need to be done, since no one should tolerate fascists in their proximity. If calling the fascists out doesn't work well enough, further action is needed, as they pose a threat to the safety and well-being of marginalized people around them.

What this action would look like, has the affected communities to decide.

If you don't know what you're talking about and just repeat some liberal talking points, you should maybe develop some intellectual curiosity. This could lead to you understanding that the black bloc tactic aren't used exclusively by antifascists and not all action antifascists take is smashing fascists (but always smashing fascism).

I'm not from the US, I'm neither liberal nor democrat and don't care at all about what each of those parties say. Where do you see the rise of fascism ? I assume you're talking about right wing ideology and racism. You see them as the purest form of evil, while they see people of different skin color as pure evil. You are both in the same mindset, simply with opposing ideology. Do you think a right wing activist could convince you to switch side ? If the answer is no, then you know how right wing guys feel about your actions. Writing on a smartphone is awful so I'll stop here, and I broke my own rule anyway: don't argue with people on internet.

With titan prume you get double the resources in half the time. It's a huge advantage. Plus distilling prime has a ridiculous little chance of getting rare resources, you will almost never get them anyway. On the other hand, if you farm for example orokin cells in game you can get tons of them in a really short time.

1 point · 20 days ago

Distilling seems good to farm uncommon resources, not rare ones ,when you can't afford to re-apply extractor every 4 hours.

According to the wiki:

Titan extractor: Common 75,5%, Uncommon 22%, rare 2% (doesn't adds up to 100% btw).

Distilling Prime: Common 20%, Uncommon 75%, rare 5%.

In a scenario where you can always re-deploy extractors every 4h, the Titan prime is superior with his double capacity, no matter what resources you're going for. But at night for example, if you aim for Uncommon resources you should go with a Distilling Prime. You'll only get to deploy it once in 8h, I don't know anyone getting up in the middle of the night to re-deploy extractors.

Yes it works. I played a lot with Valkyr carrying a single melee weapon around.

You can do the whole star chart that way, but you should still bring ranged weapon to the boss fights, some require it. You can do sorties with only your melee, unless you have the XXX weapon only modifier or you re against a boss that require a ranged weapon, you can even do the plains with melee only, but it's not really comfortable considering the size of the plains and the kind of enemy.

You can do the SO/ESO with only a melee equipped, same for the index. You can't do the Eidolons with a melee build.

Melee is really strong, and has an advantage: Melee weapons don't require nearly as many forma as primaries or secondaries to be modded. You have extra mod capacity with stances, and unless you use primed mods, the mods require less capacity I think. Without formas, melee weapons are in my opinion stronger than primaries or secondaries.

I've been using the Guandao for a long time. It's not considered a top tier weapon I think, I've reached my "max build" with something like 2 formas, and I kill everything but the heavy armored enemies in less than a second in the ESO. When enemies get high level and have a lot of armor it's not good anymore, but by that time you can switch to a better weapon than this one.


I'm trying to build a status melee weapon using Condition Overload, and I'm not sure what status chance I should settle for.

Is 80% status good enough on a polearm (lesion here), or should I aim for 100% ? I can get to 100% (and beyond) with Weeping Wounds, but I'm not sure it's worth the mod slot.

I'm wondering the same thing about primaries and secondaries. I guess there is no set rule and it depends on the firerate of the weapon ?


With 30 % base status with one 60% elemental status mod and weeping wounds you reach 100 status chance on a 2,5 x multiplier, and then you can even build for crit aswell, my zaw achieves both 100 % crit and status chance on a 2,5 x multiplier

see more
Original Poster1 point · 21 days ago

How is it in practice ? Reaching and maintaining 2.5x might be tricky in many practical scenario. In the ESO for example, it's fairly easy to reach the 2.5x combo multiplier and keep it, but it means you're killing less at the beginning of each round, where kills matter the most. Plenty of missions have bad enemy density, and it's even worse if you're playing in squad where people can kill stuff before you get in range.

1 point · 22 days ago

Valkyr is my most played frame, I love the gameplay, but she is less versatile than Ocatavia. I tried her in the ESO lately, and while she kills stuff and survive just fine, it's hard being as fast and efficient as other frames, Octavia included.

There is no content out there that require a melee warframe. They're fun to play, but never mandatory and never the most efficient at anything.

Also if you intend to build Valkyr around Warcry, you don't want to play without Eternal War, the augment mod.

As a general rule for gaming, you should go for a PC. There is nothing you can do on console that you can't do on PC. The only downside is, you pay more upfront.

Building your own PC will cost more money the first time than buying a console, but will prove to be the same price or cheaper on the long run. You don't pay expensive live subscriptions, game are cheaper on release and much cheaper a few month later, and the times where you had to buy new hardware every 2 years to play games is over. You can buy a mid range PC today and keep it for years without any issue. You won't be able to play the latest fancy game on high settings 3 years from now, but you'll still be able to play in much better conditions than on any console.

Also if you want to connect your PC to your TV, you will not get a console-like menu out of the box on Windows, so you'll have to play around to get something that suit you, that also count as a downside I guess.

Purely anecdotal. Vote Kick exists in the overwhelming majority of multiplayer online games from year 2000 - 2018, and there has never ever been a documented "widespread" problem with abuse. Those abusing it are an outlier to the norm.

If there are better solutions, please by all means regale us to what those are. Everyone says there are better solutions but nobody ever seems to know what those solutions are. "Ignoring" and "inaction" are not "better" solutions, as they are no solution whatsoever.

I've seen plenty of people complain about "vote kick leads to too much abuse", in many forums. They never offer a decent alternative, and you never know what kind of abuse they're talking about.

Yes, in a game with groups of 4, 3 premade could potentially screw the poor random ending up in their team. Does it happen on a regular basis ? Absolutely not. I've been playing way too much online game for many years, and I can't even remember it happening once. Most likely it did two or three time, but I can't remember it, that's how much it impacted me. I remember complaining about afk/greifers/etc a lot in games with no vote kick though.

I think the people against vote kicks in the forums are most likely the people we end up using vote kick against in game. If you play the game and act like a decent human being you're never kicked. And by being a decent human being I mean not being a dick. Most of the time I'm not talkative in chat, I'm not overly friendly and won't talk unless talked to, so it's not like you have to get out of your way to be friendly.

You still want to acquire every normal warframe once and level them up to 30 to increase your MR score.

Prime are slightly better but never mandatory. I haven't encountered any content in the game that require a prime warframe so far. Early on normal warframe are much more accessible than prime, so you shouldn't really focus on prime.

Later on if you have both normal and prime versions of the same warframe, but not enough slot to keep all of them, then you'll most likely get rid of the normal ones and keep the prime.

You don't need all warframes, weapons, pets, etc to enjoy the game, that's also true. But a big part of the game is to collect everything and get the best stuff. I try to collect the primed mods for example, at some point I want to use them in my builds, even if I don't have enough Endo at the moment to level them up. The primed gated behind 600 or 800 login days seem pretty unreachable to me, currently sitting at 75 login days.

Having cosmetic stuff as login reward is perfectly fine, but mods and weapons are gameplay element, and they should not be locked behind the login system.

None of the tribute mods are remotely necessary to anything. Vigor's never had much use, and better alternatives exist freely now for prime survival enhancing mods.

Fury and Shred don't do much better then their vanilla versions, and sure footed is a bad joke of a mod.

You're mistaking mildly better for necessary, when none of these mods are even impressive with the prime ranks.

+30% Attack speed for Fury.

+55% Attack speed for Primed Fury.

That's almost twice the amount. I would argue it is more than mildly better. The numbers are the same for shred. I'm fine with primed mods being hard to get / max, but not gated behind login days. There is nothing I can do to get those, I have to wait a fixed amount of days and pray that I can log into the game every day.

I'm sitting at 75 login days. The Primed Fury at 200 days seem reachable somehow, but shred is at something like 600 ? I will most likely never own it.

I'm at the phase of making an amp where I can't get myself to farm the cetus wisps and I'm too lazy to get the standing for a fishing spear to get the required parts to make murkray bait to catch murkrays.

2 points · 29 days ago

The first fishing spear should be fairly easy to get. Then you can go fish with Volt, he has some bonus damage that builds up when you move, and you can use with the spear. So you basically OS any fish with any spear if you build up a bit of damage by doing some left-right movements. The 2 fish types you need for the murkray are in the same spot, so you go there, farm those fishes for 15 minutes and should have enough for the baits.

The Wisp farm is much worse than fishing in my opinion. It's boring and they are not that common, and you need 30 of those I think.

The problem is that it's really difficult to see the fish, and I haven't seen the fish you get the eyes from.

When you open the door to the plain, stick to the right side, alongside the border of the map, until you reach the ocean. If you go there by day, the waters are filled with the 2 fishes you need and nothing else. I don't know by night. One is a bit more common than the other one, but overall it doesn't take long.

You picked a champ that win the stat check against every single champ in the game from level 1, smart move.

I'll keep perma banning him though.

1 point · 1 month ago

I guess the idea is pretty simple: If a champion takes little to no skill to be played, it also offers little counter play opportunity. Counter play is simply a term to say the opponent can outskill you and win out of it. If the champion doesn't require any skill to begin with, then you can't really "mess up", hence your opponent can't do anything if you're ahead.

The problem with that kind of champion was never that it's not fun to play, but rather it's not fun to play against.

I play Mundo. The champ is not mechanically intensive, and while I enjoy playing it and being immortal, I also feel like it's frustrating to play against. If I'm ahead I can run into 4 people with my R, kill any squishy while being immortal and never dropping below 80% HP. I spam cleaver to slow people and head butt them to death while they can't do anything.

Tryndamere could be summarized as: Can I survive his AA long enough to drop his HP bar + wait for the ult duration ? If yes, then GG you can fight him and will always win. If not, too bad he's stronger and you can't beat him. Either way it's not fun to play against.

In Gold and below bot lane players (especially ADCs) are awful. They are the only lane who didn't learn not to feed, they're useless all game and even late game they will more often than not lose you the game (your supp getting caught for the 10th time that game, or your ADC farming the jungle 40 minutes into the game instead of defending baron).

I'd rather have a team with only top/mid/jungle mains who play some mages or bruisers bot, we would win much more.

Sure there are exceptions, I've met good supps and adcs in Gold, but on average, they suck.

I don't really understand all those comments saying the system can't tell the difference between inting and having a bad game.

If someone is having such a "bad game" that he has the same score as an inter, then he deserves the same ban. You all seem to accept anything under the name of "bad game".

Losing your lane, getting killed 2 or 3 times in lane and being 60 cs down is having a bad game.

When your bot lane who is 0/9, and 30cs, engage the enemy bot once more and get killed once more, it is inting. They throw away the game and just run to their lane to fight against much stronger opponent only to die again. Sure they're not afk or sending their character die under turret, but it's exactly the same.

If you join a ranked game the matchmaking assume you have a certain level, and you're expected to perform somewhat close to that level. If you decide to turn off your brain and just run in lane and mindlessly fight again and again and go on a feeding strike, you're inting as much as the guy who run it down mid.

From where I see you're all quick to dismiss a feeder as just "another bad game". That's not a surprise though, chances are, a lot of you are those people with their 0/12 "bad games".

How does it make sense to ban someone for having a bad game? What incentive is there to come back and play again after you've been banned for having a game that just didn't go your way?

see more
1 point · 1 month ago

My whole point is: people are too lenient with the "bad game" definition, and I think people who go 0/10 in lane are not having a bad game but inters.

So I'm not advocating to ban people who have a bad game, I simply disagree with where people draw the line between bad game and inting. When for the 10th game in a row your bot lane is close to 1 death per minute, I call that inting, not a bad game.

Stop playing when you're feeling "off".

The brain in that sense is a muscle. Focus, as for anything else in the human body, is not an unlimited resource.

I think there are at least 2 different scenario:

- You're exhausted, let's say you've been working hard the whole day and feel drained. You will not be able to get your mind on the game, you used all your "mental" energy and you won't perform in any way. Don't even bother.

- You're distracted, thinking about other things or not in the correct mind set to play, but still "full of energy". Then you can focus and get into the game. I can't tell you how to do it though, that's a skill you have to learn by yourself, and that's most likely something you'll learn outside of video games.
