It sucks because I love Overwatch, but I'm also done with Blizzard. Thumbs up to Ulti if he can stick with this.
I just logged in to delete my entire friends list. Which there is apparently a timer on, so it prevents you from deleting too many people at once. From there Im deleting all the apps and games.

I have too many games I enjoy to support stuff like this: https://www.reddit.com/r/hearthstone/comments/dfi5rh/blizzards_official_response_we_highly_object_the/

Edit: That was posted by netease, not Blizzard.

The literal only way I ever play a Blizzard game in the rest of my life is a reversal of this nonsense. You all know how damn stubborn I can be.

Shouldnt have surprised me much, since they also recently wrote an article about the fan translation effort for FE5, the the point of linking a timestamped URL of a Yugioh Abridged episode, but still pretty cool.

I thought I summed it up just about right.

I really didn't appreciate Ulti coming into the discussion topics and regularly shitting all over hearthstone. Particularly so because his rants were the ramblings of someone who did not even seem to want to understand the game.

Everything ever said that's slander is always factually correct. Bob Saget raped and killed a girl in 1990, games journalists are all having filthy homo orgies behind our backs, and Filmbrain gets beaten by his dad and hides it with makeup. Prove me wrong, except you can't because nothing is going to make me disbelieve stories this funny.

I agree with basically everything FD is saying here about Ulti. He is basically the only person on B8 I have on ignore, and the only reason for it is because I can't stand his antics in the Hearthstone thread.

I do have him friended on bnet and once in a while we talk in-game. He's much easier to interact with there. But on the forum threads, all Ulti wants to do is whine about the RNG and call attention to himself. Regardless, he's definitely not some kind of authority that this article writer should bill as one. I've never made legend, but that's because I don't play enough to get there and didn't pay someone to get there for me.

Fourthing this because this is indeed why I made this topic. Obviously Blizzard sucks and the situation in Hong Kong is awful, and bizarrely those two things are now related.

But seeing a username from an niche forum for video game popularity contests, quoted by a major news outlet for their opinion on international relations, is like seeing a game show host as president.

I love how this guy ignores how I've made Legend three times since then, and Rank 1 in two other months.

(4 of those 5 runs were done with Odd Paladin but who's counting!)

Bro I would have gotten you those games anyway, though at the time I truly didn't think I'd ever be a Legend player. It's funny how I just breezed to it a few times since. It's all good though. That's why the people who troll me about this are so funny to me. It's a good laugh, nothing more.

Legend has very little to do with skill, anyway; it's all deck selection and volume of play. If you pick a high tier 2 deck you enjoy and make 1-2 tech choices so it beats tier 1 regularly (aka, angle shots so you're almost guaranteed a 53+% win rate), anyone can hit legend. My crowning achievement was getting Keleseth, Acolyte, and Pyroblast more mainstream in Big Spell Mage. It crushed the mirror and did just enough to win against tier 1. You just need the time to play 10+ games per day, or around 350-400 per month, and to take a break if you're tilted. I tilt easily, so I learned to just quit for the day if I lost twice in a row. That's the "anyone can hit legend" rate. If you're really good like Firebat is (I'll never be at this level, nor do I ever care to be), you can just make your own deck and go on some crazy 29-4 run or whatever. I usually won around 56-60% of my games, which is really good but it's hardly some pro level.

Now if FD wants to pretend I'm outright bad at the game then he's just an ignorant. Yeah, ignorant as a noun, do not @ me. FD always has been and will be the guy who pretends he knows 100% about everything even though he is clearly not good at games. He just reads forums and such to pretend he is. You know how every family has the one know-it-all who thinks they know everything and offers unsolicited advice 24/7, yet somehow they're never successful and always blames everyone else for it? You know, like Charles Barkley sitting on TNT telling people what it takes to be a champion. That's FD in gaming. He never one time beat me in Dota, outside of one game where a known map hacker who was later banned was on his team (and FD did zero percent of the work in that game). I beat him in well over 15 games past that, because he is not capable of thinking outside the box. Of course a Faceless Void who maxes Backtrack first is a stupid idea. Of course Void should NEVER be able to win a lane 1v1 against Lesh. But I play crazy, and I win for it. Safe players cannot wrap their heads around that thinking, which is why they fall short. Safe swordsmen can't beat weird ones.

I never one time saw his advice work in League of Legends (I think our 3 man team was something like 0-9 listening to him). It's seriously embarrassing seeing him pretend otherwise. Hell, just read a mafia game he's in when he rolls mafia. It's REALLY easy to peg him. He'll make giant walls of fake content with no commitments, he cannot sway people to vote with him, he knows this is his big scumtell, and he continues doing it anyway. Again, it's always the safe play. Which would be fine, but the arrogance of pretending he's some pro in anything he plays while trolling people who are demonstrably better is too hilarious. I sincerely hope he gets some help, and I'm just going to leave it at that. I don't do below the belt personal crap anymore. He knows what's up.

As for the gift, I would have done it for free. Ask @greengravy294 or @Dark_Young_Link . I'm a generous dude for people I love <3

I like Elizabeth Warren a lot, so if it comes down to Trump v her I'm happy either way. I don't really care that she lied about ethnicity to get into law school. Good on her.
