Her favorite pastime is intentionally antagonizing some of the lowest paid and least qualified workers in the country. That sounds like a really good cause, I'm sure there is something those minimum wage workers can do to influence the policy decisions of a huge government organization.

Well you're in luck. The policy already explicitly allows Ice, so if they simply do their job there's no "antagonizing" to be done.

Level 2 Ragman sells the LZSh Light Helmet but all 3 of the compatible face shields are locked behind Peacekeeper level 4 currently.
 
The only option currently is to buy a faceshield off the fence, and 80% of them have bullet holes all over them. They show as full health but have bullet holes in them, so they can't even be repaired, and from the one I managed to actually get damaged enough to repair I noticed the repairing doesn't actually clear up the visibility at all.
 
It'd be really nice for us lower level players if the visors could be moved down to a lower level.

This is a "40/40" durability face shield for 24k from the fence...

I don't understand the title. You seem to just be presenting the version you played rather than talking about different card choices.

It seems like you're version has -2 deckhand, +1 fan of knives, +1 lab recruiter.

You talk about the difficulties that quest rogue has in the early game, which I've noticed as well. That's why I think deckhand is much better than lab recruiter. Fan of knives has some uses, mostly against paladin, but you're also cutting down your removal (using deckhand as a deal 2 dmg is pretty good).

What do you think? Why did you choose to run lab recruiter/fan?

What do you think? Why did you choose to run lab recruiter/fan?

As to lab recruiter, it makes control matchups effectively un-loseable. Without it it's still possible to be grinded out in some scenarios by heavy control decks like Taunt Druid/Control Warrior/Control Warlock/Control Mage. With a single lab recruiter you cannot lose a control matchup baring a miraculously bad early hand and perfect opponent hand.
 
Personally I prefer making my good matchups essentially 100% win-rate (with lab recruiter) over making my bad matchups a tiny bit better with fan/deckhands.
 
Fan really only helps against Paladin in my experience as there aren't many other decks running 1 or 2 health minions, and it's generally not game winning anyways. In almost every game where I've played a fan of knives it's essentially just been used as a more expensive shiv.
 
The requirement to have a dagger equipped for deckhands to be good is often a pain, and while the 2 damage early can be useful against agreessive matchups, again I'd prefer to make my good matchups better than try to salvage horrible matchups. And a 3/2 body on 2 seems about as good or better than a defensive deckhand anyways in many situations.
 
I personally run 1x fan, 1x lab recruiter instead of 2x deckhand, but the fan should probably be cut, I just haven't decided what to run instead yet. I'm also considering bringing deckhands back in in place of wax elementals though, they don't really soak that much damage early game, and post-quest you're usually stabilizing off of scalehides/giggling inventors anyways.

In October 2015, a fire severely damaged the evidence room containing Scully's computer logs and videos, destroying key evidence. Some believe Scully may have bribed a local police officer, as corruption in the Philippines is high.

If it makes you feel at all better, he was still convicted despite this. Sentenced to life in prison a few months ago.

I'm 100% sure this isn't the case, judging on docos from Australian high security prisons. His day would be structured like a hospital routine and there would be so many non-guard personnel around that opportunities for mistreatment would be low and the punishment would be harsh.

If they nerf it to 6 mana, it won't effect the deck at all, and you're ignoring the fact that every deck uses it.

see more

Nerfing giggler to 6 mana would gut the deck. No double giggling with valeera, and coming down a turn later vs aggro is huge.

Seems way too inconsistent to me. I'll try a few games of it later but I'm not buying 0 bounce cards being correct.

Before anyone bothers coming in claiming it wouldn't run, Overwatch (and indeed all Blizzard games) scales really well. I got a reliable 15-20 FPS on my 2015 12" MacBook. Not playable for a lot of people, but take that 15-20 FPS, remove the overhead of Windows, put it in more capable hardware like the Switch (Intel's low-end really is shit), and get Blizzard's really good optimizing engineers on it? Easy money. It's only a matter of time.

I'm nitpicking here, but why are we talking about "remove the overhead of Windows" in your example of running it on your MacBook?

Absolutely. Dan Gable, one of the best wrestlers of all time supposedly would wake up in the middle of the night and be un-able to sleep because of the thought that somebody, somewhere, could be training harder than him, and he'd get up and work out all night.

Completely ignoring the fact that many runescape betting sites are scams, and even the legitimate ones will intentionally delay large payouts in hopes that players get greedy and lose it before they have to pay it out... The odds/expected returns are still much higher at the duel arena.
 
We'll assume the highest tax bracket to make things look as bad for the duel arena as possible, so we'll do stakes of 100m. The house rake on duel arena stakes will appear to be double the tax brackets, because they're actually taxing your original bet as well as the winnings, so it's being applied twice, for example, a stake of 100m would be taxed 2m when you get the 200m back.
 
Duel Arena Odds/Expected Value:
100m Bet.
Odds of winning the bet: 50%
Tax: 2%
 
Outcome of lose: -100m
Outcome of win: +98m
 
Expected Value = 0.5*(-100m)+0.5*(98m) = -1m
 
On average you will lose 1m for every 100m bet at the duel arena.
 
Traditional "dicing":
The most common "dicing" was played on a 100 sided die, where any roll over 55 was a win and under 55 and under was a loss. That means there were 45 winning outcomes and 55 losing outcomes.
 
100m Bet.
Odds of winning the bet: 45%
Tax: 0%
 
Expected Value = 0.45*(100m)+0.55*(-100m) = -10m
 
On average you will lose 10m for every 100m bet dicing.
 
Poker:
I'm just going off the most popular runescape betting website I could find (not going to name names here) and their poker game takes a 5% rake of each pot.
 
100m Bet.
Odds of winning the bet: 50% (not really true for poker, but lets assume similar skill for the sake of comparing "taxes")
 
Expected Value = 0.5*(-100m)+0.5*(95m) = -2.5m
 
On average you will lose 2.5m on a 100m poker bet. This one's obviously not exactly accurate because Poker isn't usually (although it can be) a 1v1 game, with even odds (there's some amount of skill to it). Either way, it should be quite clear that a 5% tax is more than a 2% tax.
 
TL;DR: Odds at the duel arena are still far better than the odds your going to get elsewhere, and that shouldn't be a surprise... These websites exist to make a profit, not to give you a "fair" place to bet.

I'd rather not advertise the site as I know for a fact that it's shady af although "legitimate". You could probably find it pretty easily yourself if you really wanted though.

It wont be me. But for example if woox, zulu or oakdice, people who are already reputable, tried, that wouldnt be an issue.

The trust factor may be less of an issue with them. But that still leaves the issue of it not being worth their time and effort unless the 1 time fee is absurdly high.

You could have a top of the line pc and still get stutters. Seems to be luck of the draw for now.

Titan X 12gb, i7-5820k, 32gb ram, game installed on an SSD, still get BIG stutters here and there, like dropping to effectively 0 fps for a few seconds. Game plays fine the majority of the time and haven't had a stutter cost me a gunfight yet (they're usually just randomly when I'm walking around) so it doesn't bother me too much.
 
Not literally top of the line, but I'd consider it a pretty solid PC.

I'm doing surprisingly well with a really awkward/heavy quest rogue list. Basically playing quest rogue with a ton of taunt minions and cheat deaths rather than always bouncing them (Stonehill, Chain Gang, Phantom Militia, Giggling Inventor). Doesn't blow at control as hard as a standard list does but it's doing seemingly ok against aggro.

But can it take the bloom and instantaneously built bullet blocking walls out of fortnite? Then I'd be down.
 
On a more serious note, PUBG vs Fortnite aside this is really fucking cool tech.

Someone getting taxed 2.5k gp doing 1 million stake is hardly punishing. Majority of people do small stakes from 1-10m.

Someone staking 1,000,000 gp would be taxed 2.5k, not 25k.

Would be nice if it at least worked in a similar way to Craws Bow (u) and didn't protect all 16k darts/scales on death. It's a 0 risk item in the wilderness that's insanely powerful. At least melee weapons aren't at their full strength without other expensive strength boosting gear, so something has to be risked if you want max effectiveness. Blowpipe+D'hide is only marginally weaker than full on maxed range gear and it's 0 risk.
 
A bit silly that it can entirely protect over 65m in stack-able items:
 
16,383 x Dragon Darts = 61,370,718gp
16,383 x Zulrah Scales = 3,997,452gp

no, actually theres a bug with FOV. if you use fov 75 ( or the more, the worst ) your line of sight is way below the red dot.

You can see here how bad it is. when you use full auto, you shoot below the dot. last week I was playing with fov50 and I killed 5 pmcs. really easily. I've never noticed this until some weeks ago when I saw a post about this.

Wish this would be a higher priority to fix. Can't stand playing on super low FOV. Movement just feels so slow/clunky.

It's not his FPS it's his Ping. AFAIK FPS is capped at 120 (but goes up to 121).

Yeah i know it's capped to 120 fps. That's why I was confused.

For me it actually goes up to 122 fps.

170 ping is pretty high :o with what software can you see your ping in games?

I don't think it's any special software, but maybe it's an NVIDIA GeForce thing? I had that same indicator on my game once but haven't seen it since and have no idea how/why it was there. Only other program I'm generally running is shadowplay is the only reason that comes to mind.
 
However if you want to see it you can just type "fps 1" in the in-game console, it'll show your FPS and it will also show RTT (Round-Trip Time) which is generally what people are referring to when they talk about "Ping".
