So, I'm a Magplar and I'm reworking my rotations and skills. I'm getting messages that some of my new skills can be morphed, but it doesnt seem to give me that option in the UI anymore. Is there a limit to how many skills you can morph? IE - you can only morph 10 skills?

EDIT: Disregard. I logged out and logged back in and I can now morph these skills.

Thank you for posting. I mostly missed out on the streams, but these are some good highlights.

I'm having tons of fun and loving the game while at the same time hating the guts out the 'f2p, always online service' business model of the game.

I see it as a very good PC game that shines in multiple areas (game play / movement, atmosphere, graphics, map design, weapon design and feel, champions design, lore, overall attention to detail).

However this good PC game is fused together in a horrible hybrid with the 'monetisation' module taken straight from your most annoying mobile phone game. It uses the most restrictive and closed off business model in existence.

It also uses the excuse that "this is how modern games are in 2018". Sincerely, FUCK this !

It's a very conflicting experience which I honestly think is bad for me, but I can't help it. I waited a looong time for a new Quake game.

I expected much more and got very, very little: LAN / ability to host my own games, offline bot support (wo internet connection requirement), full modding and custom map support.

Only time will tell if QC will live up to its Quake legacy.

Yes, SPEED is fun, but Quake used to mean much more than that.

The mobile phone game type monetisation is choking the life out of it.

EDIT: I also pitched the game repeatedly to my old Quake buddies. Most of them (with few exceptions) liked the fresh take on Quake and the champions.

None of them stayed, specifically because 'Quake without LAN and mods is not Quake. Sorry.' Nothing will bring them back and it seems that Bethesda doesn't really miss them.

I'm having a good time with it in its current state. I had my major gripes with weapons, movement, hitboxes, and so on throughout early access and own the Champions pack. There was also very little variety in the way of maps at the start, but I'm happy with the variety in the game's current state - more maps and modes are always welcome.

I have my nitpicks with being teamed up with or playing against bots, the playlists (I wish regular old DM was separate from Insta), having to constantly reque, frames hitching with lag, and the match/post match screens (I just wanna get to the stats!). There's lots of room for improvement and we are getting some fixes to these soon.

These are just minor nitpicks though. I like the speed of the game and the skill ceiling. I don't play Duel or 2v2, but I could see where there would be balance/que complaints there, from what I see.

The pros currently outweigh the cons for me, so I'll stick around for quite some time to see how this all plays out.

New player here -

I recently hit 50 and am sitting at 120 CP as a Magplar Healer a little less than a month after starting the game. I have a few general questions:

1) What are good add-ons to show hot bar timers/cooldowns?

2) Are there any add-ons to see debufs/buffs on enemies/friendlies?

3) I see that Midyear Mayhem is coming up, which is some sort of PvP deal. How important is it to join in on this? I dont know much about PVP aside from playing a few BG matches, but I do have a lot of general MMO experience and the World PvP/Campaigns kind of looks like DAoC/Warhammer Online type stuff. Is there any carry over into the PVE Realm? Or is it mainly just for XP and PvP related gear/rewards?

4) Whats with the dungeon difficulties in this game? I don't mean Vet vs Normal either. I've tried Scalecaller Peaks a few times and it seems like a group killer with it's mechanics, while other dungeons seem like you can just face roll. Is there some sort of tier system to this, or is it like, pre-DLC and post-DLC dungeons?

5) Guilds. I understand I can join up to 5 of them, per player tips, but are they essential to do trials? IE - are there any PUG trial groups running out there, or is there something like WoW's Raid Finder in existence?

I think that just about covers it since I've found everything else I need to know from casually browsing this subreddit.

Thanks in Advance!

Clutch - I can't get a feel for the Dodge and shield mechanics to save my life

Slash - Ult is cool but I'm not good with crouch slide

Strogg - The manueverability is good but the Ult seems gimmicky.

I'd say he's pretty good for a medium champion. I was primarily rolling with Nyx, then Keel, and sometimes Visor for Insta, DM, and TDM, but decided to give him another shot after trying to work Doom into my rotation. I've gotten a few 1st places with him after a handful of matches (more so than any other champ), and having had played slightly less than 200 matches.

His speed is good with proper strafe jumping and the dual wield is great for:

  1. Jumping into a group of enemies
  2. Beating tank champs by out-dps-ing them
  3. An "OH SH**" button.

He's probably my favorite medium right now and I've had good success with him.

I dont play Duel or 2v2, so you may have different expectations. I'd say I'm a low to medium skilled, 1:1 KDR ratio kinda player and I've gotten 2.7 KDRs with him.

I guess like with most champs, it depends on your play style and preference.

I've also looked at Slash and she looks pretty fun, is she bad?

I'm awful at her. She's a bit squishy and her movement with crouch slide is different than other heroes. Her special is cool, but I'm not a fan. Your opinion may vary.

Now I need to buy one since Taskmaster was my main.

Sure thing.

I'd go to a Casino and try my luck. Win or lose, his "motherfucker" would be appropriate. Double your money? MOTHERFUCKER! Lose everything? Mother.....fucker....

It works out.

Hey Everyone,

So I've been selected by my company to go through Juniper JNCIA training, and that generally means that want me to get JNCIA certified. We'll be doing a week long course towards the end of May.

I'd like to get a jump start on this stuff though. Do you have any recommended books or resources for JNCIA? How's the test difficulty? I've got a CCNA R/S and halfway through CCNA Collab myself, so I'm just trying to gauge how difficult this will be. My Route/Switch knowledge is a bit rusty since I've been mainly working with telephony junk over the last two years, roughly.

Thanks in Advance

Passed JNCIA 102 this month. For my studying I used the official JNCIA Study Guide, old cbt nuggets by Michael Shannon (he is perfect unlike more recent Jncia cbt nuggets).

For practicing I used that old olive VM + vSRX inside Eve-ng and sometimes GNS3.

I would add that 5 hour long Juniper Network Fundamentals course.

It was an easy exam, I'm now studying for my ccna i will attempt the exam in June.

Cool deal. We were told to buy some $35 software that's like Packet Tracer, but I'll look into possibly checking out the GNS3 option.

I should probably brush up on the fundamental stuff and factoidal information (what kind of routing protocol is OSPF, BGP, etc).

I've done some slight work on Juniper gear before at my job at an MSP, but nothing crazy.

I kinda like the Jack Daniels one. Might order it.

Hey Everyone,

I think I'm about to pull the trigger on a new machine (coming from a 2500k), but wanted some input to make sure there was nothing goofy with this list:

Edit: Now with PC Part Picker List:

My only real concern is moving to a micro-atx size, since I've only ever built Full ATX machines. I'm basically looking to build a gaming rig that will last me a few years with some upgrade leniency.

What is your GPU? And also, why use a low-profile cooler when you have the space for a larger one? Otherwise build looks good.

1060 - I'll just be ripping it out of my current rig. Yeah, its not the best thing out there, but it gets the job done. Buying a 1070/1080 isn't entirely in the budget right now and I'll probably wait another gen or two before replacing the 1060.

As for the cooler - that was just a random one I grabbed. I might tack on a larger one if you think thats the way to go.

Continue to learn and get outside of your comfort zone. Don't feel afraid to leave if you don't see any upward mobility at your current gig.

I like Muse. They definitely use the Pink/Purple/Blue color scheme in their videos and such. I'm sure it's not coincidental. Example:

They're constantly in my music rotation.

Yeah, I'd say that you're andro. Very cute too.

Yeah, I feel you and this is a tricky subject. It mostly just annoys me when I'm single and there is a woman I'm interested in and this gets dropped. I can't say I really have a solid answer. Just correct as necessary.

That's tough man. I'd say you should tell anyone that you're interested in after a few dates or so. I've been through the same and it sucks but I feel that it's something that you should share with a partner - why be with someone you have to hide from? Just my two cents.

Maybe it was some other factor why she ghosted you? Who knows.

I just want to say, no matter who wins, thank god we're fans of the NFC.

I love dominating teams, but Christ it feels like Pats Steelers is just a given at this point

Not a fan of AFC for this reason. Pats, Steelers, sometimes Ravens and Broncos. I feel that's how it's been for the last decade with no competition.

Thanks for the links.

“I call myself bisexual because I acknowledge that I have in myself the potential to be attracted – romantically and/or sexually – to people of more than one sex and/or gender, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree.”

Is this the Robyn Ochs definition you we're referring to? Never heard of her before but that does sound good.

2 points · 7 months ago · edited 7 months ago

Yeah that's the often cited one and is probably one of the best explainations out there.

[31 M] As a young kid I had crushes on girls and somewhat effeminate, but when puberty hit I realized that I was also sexually attracted to men. For context, this was in like 98/99 and I didn't know that bi was a thing, so I came out to my family as gay. I generally rolled with that identity in my lower teens. I guess the rationale at the time was that if you're even slightly being interested in guys, you're just gay, right? Wrong. Major miscalculation on my part and my interest in men faded. This wasn't a social pressure thing for me, but more of an internal struggle. My family accepted the idea that I was gay a few months after I came out and I was friends with other kids that were lesbian/gay/questioning.

Time marched on and I dated only girls in my late teens to twenties. I had a few experiences with women, but my interest in guys resurfaced after a breakup with a girl - we weren't the most sexually compatible and it messed with me. I had major issues with both a gay or straight sexual identity in my twenties, trying to write off my attractions to either sex in certain ways depending on the context (loneliness, confusion, fetish, etc). I'm 31 now and just go with bi now. It ebbs and flows and it still messes with me at times too, but I roll with it. It's a tricky thing to realize and biphobia will mess with ya.

I'm definitely more romantically more interested in a girls and get quite turned on by them when I'm in proximity, but more often than not I'm more sexually interested in men when it comes to porn and fantasy. There is this one lady I know that thinks I'm just gay (doesn't believe the bi identity) but she turns me on incredibly, for example.

Id say that i'm more likely to notice women when I'm out and about but am occasionally interested in certain guys.

I guess the end game for me would be to settle down with a nice bi/pan/etc person who gets WTF is going on in my swirly head.

I hope this helps, makes sense, and doesn't come off too ranty.

So I [31 M] posted a while back about coming out at work (about mid-May). Things have been extremely awful and I think today was the first day since then that I haven't gotten some nasty remark or overheard an anti-LGBT comment because I believe management has severely cracked down, but I'm not entirely positive on what the message is, but I've also witnessed other employees saying that they will report another to HR if comments continue - there is a huge anti-LGBT sentiment in my department, which is weird, because the other major department has a few LGB folk. I haven't really gotten much support or than a few people being indifferent otherwise. Anyways, on that front, things have gotten better.

I went through about a month and a half of therapy with a gay therapist and got my head straightened out a bit as well. I realized it wasn't doing me too great since we left off at "So what? go live your life and date".

I've been single for an extremely long time due to work constraints and coming to terms with things. I live in a small hick kind of town with my almost life long friend and roommate, whom I've told. I'm pretty sure the word has gotten out one way or another either through him or others that know what's up. I got home from work today and buddy was hanging out with one of his friends, whom I'm not crazy about but friendly to. They were talking about me briefly and my buddy/roommate, commenting about me, said in a mocking tone that "Nobody wants to date me because I also want the D". It pretty much hurt since I got stood up by a bi-woman these last few weeks and he knows about that as well. I'll talk to him when he gets home later for sure, but damn did that sting.

I'm pretty close to just saying "Fuck it", leave this area, and start all over again - which may actually be for the best. I'm just hanging in there for now, because I really don't feel like I should have to pack up just to live my life - I'll still run into the same issues elsewhere.

Thank you for listening to my rant. I've been good at not venting to the internet but I really felt it necessary tonight.

You don’t wanna leave, but what future do you see there? A hick town that’s hostile to LGBT people isn’t going to be a pleasant experience for you. Especially if everyone at your job is an asshole now too. And your “friend” apparently busted you right out. Fuck all that. Pack up and move somewhere else. Find a big city you can disappear into and be whoever you want to be. No one will care. And your dating options will open up wide.

Yeah, I think this is really the beginning of the end of my life in the city/area I grew up in. I've been dealing with so many people sticking their nose in my business and unnecessary drama. At the least I'm going to relocate to the city which is kind of indifferent to LGBT folks, but I think I'm ready to start fresh again into adulthood. I just feel like I'm running from a problem but it's likely for the best.

It got better than the first few days. It takes like 1-ish min to get into a game whereas it was like 5-10 min before.
