    (just a joke btw I don't disagree)
  2. TIAM: General Gaming edition

    I miss the old MLM forums, hell I miss forums like this in general. Seems like all communities pretty much only function on Reddit and Discord nowadays. They're both good platforms (Discord especially) but the majority of subreddits feel very impersonal, no matter their size. The only 'classic' style forums that I know are still relatively active are the LTT forums and maybe Somethingawful (But even that I'm not sure on). I miss how you would get to know people, and users would kinda grow a reputation, whether it was positive or negative.
  3. What song are you listening to RIGHT now?

    Fucking RIP. I don't like to take some moral highground against drugs but Xanax and Fentanyl are scary things, Fentanyl especially seems like it's just a modern day heroin

    New Yung Lean album is out and it's probably my favourite thing he's done so far. Gud, Sherman and Whitearmor really knocked it out of the park with the production on it

    I know what you mean, but I completely disagree with how you describe the game. I opened roughly 27 lootboxes just from playing the last event, doing all the arcade bonuses+all the levels. I had 2700 coins before the envent started, and finished the even with 3500. During the even I got 2 normal legendaries and 1 of the old halloween legendaries (with mercy) and 1 of the new halloween legendaries (Pirate Ana). I then spent 3000 coins to get the Symmetra skin which of the event legendaries was far and away the one I wanted the most and if I hadn't saved up all those coins before the even I wouldn't have been able to get it. The worst part is that based on the numbers that people have calculated, and that Blizzard have put out because of Chinese laws, I got lucky to get that many legendaries to drop. It's definitely not the worst offender, but I think to say that it's implemented as well as it could be is pretty wrong. The fact that these are items in the game that Blizzard know people would want and don't provide any alternative is scummy. I'm not arguing that there shouldn't be lootboxes, but the fact that you could continuously grind, and buy loot boxes and never get the legendary you want is awful in my opinion. The only situation you could be in where you could 100% guarentee that you could get a legendary that you want would be if you owned every single item in the game, and then either grinded, or bought 100 loot boxes (which would cost you $90) got the worst luck possible and got 3 commons and a rare in each box (all duplicates, obviously) and then bought the single legendary you wanted. I get what you mean about them not being the worst, and I don't wanna sound like a cunt, but to say that you generally have enough to get what you want without a hell of a lot of grinding is pretty wrong.

    PC Gamer posted an article today where Mike Morheim (the CEO of Blizzard) said he doesn't think that Overwatch deserves the criticism for its Loot Boxes. People in the comments were arguing that it's not a problem because the stuff in lootboxes has A. No tangiable value and B. Doesn't affect gameplay. I understand that Overwatch definitely isn't the worst offender, but I don't know how people can mindlessly defend the random distribution of items for real life currency. Like christ, I understand if the Lootboxes are an option for getting stuff, but when you can't buy the item you want directly and have to either grind for levels, or spend money and THEN randomly get the item you want from a box I think there's a real problem.
