Is that button to make me concede defeat? They got in the same ballpark of buys that peak TNA did so that plays more at what I was saying that their attendance number was bloated relative to their influence at the moment, since they got 120% peak TNA buys and over double peak TNA attendance.

It's at the very least not a bad buy rate though and does indicate that their current baseline is probably around peak TNA level, which isn't a bad starting point all things considered if your product is actually good.

Yeah I would've considered quitting if I had a compulsion to do the daily grind. As is most days I've just been doing dragon and sweeping Time Rift. Hurts my overall progression but whatever. Gear is gonna be the biggest absolute bottleneck I think since it's RNG based so I figure if I keep on top of that I give up less ground. Still like the gameplay of story + time rift though but yeah the daily stuff really needs work late game.

I actually had a discussion on Reddit where I tested it

Order seems to be, IIRC

Archers
Mages
Assassins

Cavalry
Fliers

Demon
Aquatic

Infantry
Lancer

Cleric

Putting spaces where I remember for sure there was a difference. It is by class but shaky on exact order. We had conflicting reports on Archer vs Mage but I've always had archers go first.

Ties are broken by order placed on the map

I do have a decent Kirikaze + Angelina + Bernhardt though so I think when I actually bother with Thunder Dragon again I should have a chance once I experiment with teamcomps a bit.

In theory the answer is "I don't like kids but if my partner wanted one I would do it for them" but realistically if my partner wants one that's basically going to be a dealbreaker as far as compatibility goes to begin with so I voted the dissuade one as that's probably more accurate?

I'm not expert on this or anything but I feel like having a bunch of passwords isn't hard and if it is you're probably over complicating it. Like realistically to be reasonably secure you only need a small handful of core passwords, then you just need to theme them in some way where they're not literally identical but similar enough that it's not a strain to remember them. Like for instance you could make your Twitter password TweetOfTheElderGods4$ and your GameFAQs password FAQsOfTheElderGames!8.

If the person knows your style and other accounts you have there's a slight risk, but it's probably more secure than writing them down or using a password manager I think.

Of course you can combine the two approaches too. If you've got a pattern memorized you can write down the variations somewhere without actually writing the whole password there so someone would need to have compromised both for there to be a lot of risk. Twitter you could just put Eldest Tweet Gods 4$ and GameFAQs you could put Eldest FAQs Games !8

Putting it off served me well enough. I originally had it between I, III, VII, XI, XII, XIII, and XV. Various draws obsoleting/duping items ruled out most of those until it was down to XV vs XI (or XIII for favoritism).

Went with XV because my healing situation there is more dire (I have Lilisette who can actually serve as a decent healing supplement with her breaks and healing chase so I probably don't even need Aphmau's Burst and can get by with Curadas)

You can claim anything causes anything in mafia, but it's not always true. A play leading to a desirable result doesn't always mean you had a hand in it. There are better ways to help exonerate scumbuddies than just claiming mafia.

To think otherwise, that every play you make that works out was the best or even necessarily a good play, to me, is sign of a narrow minded (and frankly, conceited) view of mafia.

Something "working" doesn't always mean it was a good play. Sometimes it just means the game was won in spite of a poor play. Like in Baseball you don't say the starter had a good game if he gave up 8 runs in the first just cause the other pitcher gave up 10 over 5 and lost the game

As I understand it you did not actually cause any harm to your team so in theory you could say you read the room right, as opposed to a scum claim which would in any circumstance cause harm

Funny thing is I'm not saying your play was objectively bad. In fact I actually think the play worked so it was fine.

I'm saying an observer is more likely to be objective when discussing play because they have no skin in the fight.

As I understand it disputes used to be forwarded to a random mod? Given the amount of meaningful discourse I've seen in disputes (my own and others) I think this will make it less likely to see overturns not more.

Like say you have 10 mods, just to name a number, and one out of the ten actually rationally reads disputes when they get them, then you have a 10% chance of having a chance of an overturn.

Now with the new system that one mod who cares to put effort in will always be outvoted, so you get no overturns instead of a small chance of one.

For B on Villains/Monsters, I put Boo Berry from the cereal. Everyone voted no because they felt the implication was evil and Boo Berry is friendly.

B on Monsters: You may vote yes on each option, but you'll have to choose one to be eligible to vote on the next option. Voting yes on every option will count when determining which option is used at the end of the election.

If it's the first option when I get down to it, I'm voting yes. If it's the second option, I'm voting no. If it's the third option, I don't know about this, but I'm voting no on both options. If it's the fourth option, then yes, please do vote on it so you can do something else on Thursday.

I was very close to voting yes on Boo Berry, but I was leaning toward yes on it.

The answer to the questions "Which side is you on?" and "Why did you vote no on Boo Berry?" were both about why they did it, and why they are voting yes.

The answer for all five people was to vote yes because this was their first time voting for it, they would be in more dire straits if they voted no, they'd be more anxious about it not going anywhere, and it would give them a chance to see what

Well I don't think it's a matter of me underestimating AEW as much as not counting things they don't have until they are actually using them

Like this whole time I'm saying "AEW is basically a lock to be bigger than TNA once they're on TV, but they aren't currently" whereas you guys seem to be saying because they've got all these ducks in a row they're currently a bigger deal.

I'm not saying this is the wrong way of looking at things necessarily, just explaining the main reason of why my thought process isn't lining up. I am in no way intending to imply that AEW can't or isn't likely to eclipse TNA, just that technically speaking by my scorecard it hasn't until we actually see these assets in motion.

Just to note I've been saying that "AEW is all but a lock to be bigger than TNA after a few weeks of their TV deal have actually been in place" since the start! But yeah I think if you're just going to assume they have to do better than TNA because they're on a bigger network than Spike (and frankly they're in the same ballpark either way-- this isn't PopTV vs TNT here) and because they drew a big show, I disagree with that.

To me it's not because it's not actually in place yet.

Like if the argument is AEW is theoretically bigger than TNA ever was if you count it as though they were already on TV since that's already agreed on, I'm with you.

But I feel like you shouldn't count that until they're actually on TV and you see the rating they're grabbing.

Okay I guess I'm wrong on that! I was mostly just looking at PPVs, admittedly, which is probably more fair to compare to a 12000 show since we should be comparing shows with hype to shows with hype, but whatever.

I still think you guys are underestimating the value of a TV deal though. Like I have a lot of lapsed wrestling fan friends who knew what TNA was back when it was on Spike every week. Usually they'd just make fun of its name, sometimes they'd be like "wow Kurt Angle is on this show!" then promptly tune out to never return after seeing Kurt Angle.

But yeah like, not one of them knows what AEW is, currently, or at least haven't mentioned anything about it. Granted those people aren't buying tickets to see shows or PPVs or anything either.

Like if your argument is AEW is bigger currently among current wrestling fans than TNA ever was I could buy that. Bigger among the population as a whole though I don't know. There's a certain notoriety having a show on a fairly large Cable TV network every week brings you. Less now with more cord cutting I guess but still.

Now this is moot because AEW has a TV deal and they'll have that very soon, but we're talking currently.

I think you're underestimating what TNA at its best was. Throw out the 1.4 rating for a bit-- 0.9-1.1 ratings which they were able to reliably draw when some people still liked TNA is still pretty good and relevant for a wrestling show, and their non Impact Zone attendances were generally pretty okay in the 3-5000 range.

Yes, way below WWE at the time but they were a strong #2 for a while there, and reliably pulling those figures is a number I'd put above what AEW is now because taking the 12000 attendance figure at face value is a mistake. If AEW runs a show every week right now it's not getting anywhere near 12000 at all of them or even all the major ones. Maybe once the TNT deal kicks in they'll establish a base that can do that, but we're talking right now.
