: why do only losers become mods?
I'm a loser nothing in real life, wasn't bullied in school though I was the loveable goof. I think people mod for a lot of different reasons, I tried it because I had a connection to this place and I thought I could make a difference. Some might do it for the power, but it is almost always a thankless task and I do not envy anyone who takes it upon themselves. Everyone makes mistakes, mods overreact and players make mountains out of molehills, the key to making it in life is learning to meet people halfway. From my experience you could get away with quite a lot if you gave a little respect.
: Just saw the John Wick movies, pretty good except for a few minor complaints
Ya the end where he has been literally shot point blank multiple times, stabbed bleeding and every inch of his body has been beaten to a pulp and he just takes off into a dead run like its nothing while apparently every single person in the city is a trained assassin that is about to go after him... come on. I love Keanu but I wish these action stars could go out on a high note instead of being wrung dry until they are coughing up dust while hollywood kicks their corpses to see if a few pennies roll out of them.

Who's going to believe anyone here now? I don’t really care honestly. And let me be clear, I’m not saying what Riot did was right. It was wrong. It was sexist. They need to answer for that, too. However, let’s be real and call this what it is: the anti-SJW crowd hijacked this issue and made it about themselves. And that’s wrong, too. We can acknowledge that sexism took place both ways but let’s not pretend it’s even close to being the same in terms of severity of mistreatment. Because it’s not.

Can you show me the tweet where riot told its women players to go commit suicide? Equality is a meme, it has never existed in any form since the dawn of time and never will. How about the draft? Front lines combat? Who goes on the lifeboats first? Sure people should be treated nicely, that is just called being polite. But this bending over backwards simping to correct some phantom evil oppressive system that just wants to keep women and blacks in perpetual servitude is disgusting and does nothing but distract us from the real problems we face in the world. But go ahead and meme away, not like anything we say on here means jack all anyways, we are all just howling into the abyss.

I think you missed my point, someone being held accountable for their actions was a good thing (I don't think anyone should be fired for words online but that is a whole other ballgame). I just wanted to bring to light the fact that this thing happening isn't the war being won, it wasn't even a battle. It was the equivalent of a single scout being shot down. By all means enjoy the victory, but don't lose sight on the bigger picture. Riot is still the same company that it was yesterday and it will continue to act the same as it always has. Unless enough people actually draw a line in the sand and tell riot that they are not happy with action and not just words than nothing will change. I know this is depressing information and not what people want to hear while basking in the post coital glow of battle. I don't expect to farm likes for this post, but I felt like it needed to be said by someone.

: Is being offended by everything part of evolution
: I don't think anyone is arguing that the many male League champions *aren't* designed to be shredded, sexy hunks (if you're into that). The concern is more directed to the fact that even *accounting* for that there are still numerous body types among male champions (and also less stereotypically attractive champions like Olaf, Gragas, Malzahar, etc), while nearly every member of the female cast falls into "Yordle", "Sexy, big-busted, slim-waisted figure", "Jinx", or "Illaoi." Even the female MONSTERS (Rek'Sai and Anivia aside) suffer from this. In short, yes, League skews towards objectifying members of both genders as far as physical appearance goes. But the manner in which it objectifies females is much narrower in scope than the manner in which it objectifies males, and that is where a lot of people would like to see improvement.

No one wants to play a fat and or ugly woman character, they couldn't get people to play urgot even when he was busted as hell. They sure as hell won't get more than a handful of people to ironically play a lux that put on 200lbs and that got her face ran over by a truck. Every other type of woman or man is represented, you have plain faces like talia, monster girls, cutsie girls, traditionally good looking girls. There have been plenty of studies that show when given the choice women will choose the better looking female avatar in games. Just like guys enjoy playing a giant muscle bound warrior because they would like to be that irl. Women play the good looking female characters because those are the traits they desire irl. And no amount of social indoctrination can change those biological facts.

I have literally never seen a single thing he has said besides the gay frog memes and the video I posted. I don't give even half a flying fuck about the guy. I care about the greater good, I care about people being silenced in the name of equality. I care that people have lost the ability for rational thought and only want to go through life being affirmed and spoon fed by others so they never have to question a single thing that goes through their heads. I worry every day that maybe I am in the wrong on these things, when was the last time you ever questioned your dogma?

So can we ban Riot from itself for intentionally spreading harmful misinformation that they know how to balance the game? Who are the arbiters of truth now? Zuckerburg? Apple? Is that really what you want? "To whom do you award the right to decide which speech is harmful, or who is the harmful speaker? Or to determine in advance what are the harmful consequences going to be, that we know enough about in advance to prevent? To whom would you give this job? To whom are you going to award the task of being the censor? Isn't it a famous old story that the man who has to read all the pornography, in order to decide what's fit to be passed and what isn't, is the man most likely to become debauched? Did you hear any speaker of the opposition to this motion – eloquent as one of them was – to whom you would delegate the task of deciding for you what you could read? To whom you would give the job of deciding for you? Relieve you from the responsibility of hearing what you might have to hear? Do you know anyone? " I already know how you are going to respond so don't bother, "but freebum of speech doesn't mean freebum of consequences". And you are right, private companies have the right to do what they want, I just think it is a little terrifying that they are banding together now and taking action as one. But thats ok because he can just take his business elsewhere right? He can go join that other competing mega social media site... oh wait, there aren't any. I guess you better tow the line than or get off the internet. Baa like a good little sheep now.

Ya site got fucked with a while back and for some reason they have a bunch of restrictions. 10's Cowboy Bebop (classic, basically Firefly anime) Neon Genesis Evangelion (the godfather of mecha anime, basically changed anime forever. Very old though and esoteric, its not for everyone. If you do stick with it stop before the second to last episode and finish by watching End of Evangelion) Berserk (not the new one the 97' one, another masterpiece classic from the golden age of anime. DO NOT WATCH THE NEW VERSION IT IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY) Code Geass ( My personal favorite anime of all time, second season kind of plops early but finishes strong and has one of the best endings of any show ever made) Toradora!, Kokoro Connect ( My two favorite romance anime, if you want some love and some feels this is as good as it gets) Steins;Gate (Probably objectively the best anime ever made, it just doesn't have any weaknesses. No bad characters or any glaring flaws. The only anime where the dub is better than the sub) Madoka★Magica (Just watch it, don't look up anything on it, go in blind and give it at least 3 episodes) Hunter x Hunter (2011) (What shonen should have been, you will never be able to watch narushit after this. A classic that somehow managed to not only maintain its quality but improve on itself over 100+ episodes. It doesn't get any better than this) Psycho-Pass (closest anime gets to blade runner, the first season is a sci fi dystopia masterpiece. 2nd season got passed onto the B team and they shat the bed, you can still watch it but don't expect the quality of the first season. The movie was fine and hoping for a 3rd season from the first season team at some point) Re:Zero (Isakai done right + god tier waifus. MC is a normal kid with no super skills or godlike powers he will fail a lot like a real human would in his situation. If you go into it accepting that and not expecting him to one shot every challenge like most wish fulfillment shows of this type you will get the most out of it) Fullmetal Alchemist/Brotherhood (you can watch in either order it doesn't really matter both are great in their own way and tell the same basic story just with a different focus. Brotherhood is probably the better one but either or both is fine) Kaiji (only the first season, second season is garbage) Fate/Zero Nichijou/Kono Suba(Best comedy anime) Kill la Kill/Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (Back when trigger could do no wrong they made these two blockbusters) Zankyou no Terror (incredible animation some scenes look almost lifelike) One Punch Man (ONE PUUUUUUUNCH!!) Made in Abyss (just watch it) Devilman: Crybaby (don't watch this with your parents around)

: Uninstalling this game for the first time in 5 years (no joke) Peak rank: (Diamond 2 100 LP)
Agree with everything besides runes, they don't need to be reverted or balanced. THEY NEED TO GO! PERIOD. That right there would instantly lift a heavy burden off of the balance team and allow them to focus on getting the champs right. Runes are a relic of the past and I am not sorry to say that I never enjoyed them. They add needless complication and frustration to the game. It just adds to the chance of getting a teammate that has the wrong runes or doesn't give a fuck and picks random runes vs people picking meta and makes random modes where you don't know what champ you are going to get and might not have the time to figure out a good rune page for them in the 30 seconds you get. I know there is no chance of them going away because they are tied to monetization with rune pages but I fully believe that dropping them and focusing on balancing the champions and items would improve the game overnight.

The state of competitive gaming when the winners aren't even allowed the mildest banter. If you get triggered by ggez you shouldn't be playing multiplayer games in the first place. Multiplayer gaming in 2000's: Winners "GGEZ NOOBS" , Losers "Ya well I fucked your mom last night". Winners "haha nice bantz see you next round" Multiplayer gaming in 2010's: Winners "GGEZ", Losers "ZOMG REPPORT RITO PLS MUH FEELINGS HOW WILL I EVER RECOVER!"
: While I think disciplinary action was deserved, I'm -really- not a fan of some of the takeaways coming from this situation. For a quick example from a deleted reddit post: >Even better: we can probably fire anyone on the GW2 dev team as long we make a big enough stink. Nobody at Arenanet is safe from the hand of reddit. > >We're literally running the company now, they're in fear of the very users they seek to consort with. And if the devs stop communicating, we'll just go at their PR person and cut them down. We actually play the game more than they'll ever be able to. > >The moment a dev steps out of line or try to talk back to a player, guess what, they'll know we got their hands on their throat and we can squeeze any time we like. Like yes, a company should care about public image and how devs interact with the community. However, this idea that "The moment you say something we don't like we're getting you fired" is a really shitty thing to do. Plus a bad twitter exchange in public should not be a call-to-arms that ArenaNet is now 100% subservient to the whims of Reddit and the playerbase.

Thing is we don't know what was going on behind the scenes. This could have just been the last of many problems that pushed it over the edge for her. It feels to me that she was already a problem and this was just the straw that broke the camels back. Now ideally all of this twitter/reddit online bullshit shouldn't mean a damn thing. It's so dumb that people aren't allowed to be human in public anymore. If she wants to be a twat so be it, if she isn't doing it on their own private forums than it shouldn't matter, let the public call her out for being an idiot and move on. But I get that outrage culture won't allow that anymore so now everyone has to be fake and put on a good face so they don't offend anyone.
: Guild Wars 2 just had some really big drama this week.
Another reason I dislike places like Reddit, these people live in these echo chambers and they get the false impression that the rest of the world thinks like they do. And when that world view is finally shattered by reality they break down. I may give Riot hell a lot and they deserve it and then some. Compared to the crackdown of free speech that most game companies do these days they have somehow maintained a relatively open forum. Aside from a few incidents here and there have mostly allowed us to be ourselves to some degree and I think it has played at least a minor part in their long term success.

In a way she is a victim as well, they built this culture of intolerance and didn't realize they were pointing the guns at themselves at the same time. This outrage culture and everything being an us vs them war that has to be won is eating away at the fabric of our society. Its sick and sad and I just want to know where we went wrong. What started this whole mess and how will we ever go back to any semblance of normalcy?

: When a champ is a little too good, at a little too many things. [A study on Garen]
Holy shit and I thought I liked to talk too much. Anyways OP sounds like a salty garen main who is faking outrage because he is getting beaten in popularity in the vs event. Sorry but there is no universe in which Garen is overpowered right now. And your example of Jinx is pure bullshit, jinx has always been extremely vulnerable to dive being the least mobile adc in the game with zero movement modifiers outside of post kill procs. You could make any champion sound broken comparing their ability to wail on a jinx with 6 items I mean come the fuck on.
