  1. I think people seem to forget that when you play a game, just because you bought it you do not have the right to act whichever way you want. Like other have said, I am not going in favor of game companies sifting through social medias to find toxic players. Then again I don't think that if they find Joe Blow who posted "Blizzzard sucks, fuck XYZ guild on ABC server" once they are going to ban him; but on the other hand, if they see Jane Doe inciting people to spam shit in a game, or have repeated history of toxic behavior they might, and it can be even justified. I agree that toxic behavior is subjective, but you also have to agree that there is a general definition of what is toxic. I have been suspended before from an MMORPG and a MOBA, in the first it was a 14 day ban and in the second it was a month (won't say which game or the specific reason why). Never have I blamed the company for MY BEHAVIOR. You act like an asshole you get treated like one. I was fully aware what my action could lead to, I went through with them anyways, and paid the consequences. If a player acts toxic on a forum/socialmedia/ etc etc, what's to stop said player from being toxic in game ruining the fun for others? Not saying to be PG 13, politically correct, or whatever because fuck that if that's not you, but there is nothing to be gained from being toxic. At the end of the day it's a game, if you get so upset that you have to act toxic (or if you just have fun by being a dick to get a rise out of people) then you have bigger issues. I wish companies would stay out of social medias, but again they are not private, and if it helps weed out asshole from my game then I can tolerate it. I love snarky remarks, and as someone who has been in the raid scene of an MMORPG for 8+ years, I enjoy the competition and trash talks that comes between players, but toxic behavior is NOT okay. Look at what Riot Games did to Tyler1 for the longest time. I find the dude funny, but I would not be able to stand being in a game of League with the guy. TL;DR I do not condone companies digging through social medias, and I agree that sometimes toxic behavior is subjective, but the company has every right to do what they wish with their game; if this bothers you, just don't support the specific company. In the end if this bugs enough people, the company will see a loss and will stop the behavior.
  2. Crypto currency won't last. In just the last month alone it halved in value. That can mean one of two things: it's either dieing, or it's stabilizing. Either ways it's bad for investment as investors want growth. Honestly I never bought into this whole crypto-currency. It's just data, there is no physical monetary version which makes it extremely volatile. The people that made money where the ones that invested into it years back when everyone thought bit coin was a joke, then suddenly got a growth of over 500% and made bank. Anyone investing on them now is just going to not earn anything or lose, so hopefully that craze will die off. I had no idea this was impacting videocard prices as I don't really follow the crypto-currency stuff that closely, which blows very hard for literally ANYONE else wanting a videocard other than for mining. Looked up prices on new egg and the fact that a 1070 is selling for over $1,000 is stupid in every way. I would almost be tempted to sell my two 1080s, and just pop in my 980s and buy the 1080s again once all this crazy dies down.
  3. While YouTube is getting progressively more stupid with how they handle the ability for Youtubers to make some revenue from their uploads, will this really impact smaller channels? I feel like if you don't have at least 1K subs you aren't even really earning anything. Not just that, but unless I remember wrong, you can't even claim what you made until you hit the $100 threshold. My channel with the "amazing" numbers it has (68 subs & 1,460 watch hours) has earned me $4.49; which I can't even claim yet of course. While I don't like this, I don't think I am too upset about it especially since hitting 4,000+ watch hours seems pretty simple. I think what should worry the most is this new "strict criteria" which can mean anything, but even then I think most MTG channels are likely to be fine. I could be misunderstanding this but that's my 2c.
  4. I believe prior to this one, the only other trace rifle was Coldheart or w/e it is called. You can upgrade them by using auto rifles.
  5. Plz no ban
  6. I can understand changes to social medias by the people that run them to weed out material that is toxic and can cause harm to people; however, with twitter's biased history of who they chose to ban and not ban this is an absurd change. The same goes for almost every other social media. The whole idea that everyone needs to feel safe all the time is ridiculous to me, because it goes hand in hand with "being offended" which is an absurdly childish concept to me. Honestly, if it wasn't for the current movements that are going on right now in the sociopolitical world right now, I would not even think of much about the change; unfortunately, in today's day and age this change means something completely different. Hell maybe I am looking too much into it, but I am getting tired of everyone and their dog getting "offended" by everything under the sun.
  7. To me it honestly, and highly, depends on what I want to do with the cards. Let's assume that I want to build a deck, I think buying a booster box is a huge gamble that might end up in a loss. One can argue that you can trade off what you don't need from the box, or even sell it, and finish off your deck that way; but what if all you get are bulk rares? Or nothing worth trading in your local community? I would much rather buy singles, finish my deck, and no hassle or gamble. On the other hand, if I want to draft with friends, build my collection (this being quantity and not quality), or just plainly want to open packs, obviously boxes are the way to go. I think both have their place. Nothing wrong with buying singles to complete decks, improve your trade binder, or for financial "investments", and there is nothing wrong with buying booster boxes for whatever fancy you want to tickle. People that are on either extreme (e.x. NEVER BUY BOXES or NEVER BUY SINGLES) are kind of dumb in my opinion, but to each their own I suppose.
  8. Hello all! Been taking some time off magic, but with rotation and and exciting new Standard environment I am back at it again, and because I am hard headed and I like trying to make sub-optimal things work I am in the process of building a UR control deck. Sure I could go Jeskai, Grixis, or even Esper of UB as they are all better alternatives, but that would include me not banging my head against the wall several times before I give up Here is the link to the deck list on Tappedout: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/ixalan-ur-control-1/ Let me know what you think, any feedback is appreciated.
  9. I just use my PS4 controller, but really any random ass PC controller will work for you unless you need macros/extra buttons but those controllers cost a dumb amount and are not worth it imo. Cheapest solution is just to get a Logitech controller like Wolphard mentioned. Even the wired Xbox is like $40+
  10. It really depends how you play EDH, what your group's play style is, and what deck you build. EDH is also a format that is heavy on politics. Most games with pre-con decks will be long and drawn out as not many can pull off wins out of nowhere and it takes time to set up; but on the polar opposite, if you build a legit "competitive" EDH deck you can easily pull off wins turn 4-6. EDH, in my opinion, is one of the most diverse formats. Yes games will last longer than modern or standard of course, but overall it is much more fun for a group of friends in my opinion. Experiment with different commanders, you will have a blast.
  11. Oh boy I remember these types of decks popping up everywhere when Boros Reckoner was first released. These decks are stupid fun to play, nice build
  12. Good to know!
  13. My friends swear by Rotten Tomatoes, I absolutely hate it. The reviews are rarely on point.
  14. I have been feeling this way for some time now. Movies have been a real let down lately. They are either remakes, sequels, or just bad. Granted most summer movies tend to be horrible period, they are always way too campy, or tend to be a bunch of teenage movies and chick flicks.
  15. I actually picked up one along a few friends this past weekend. The one that I found to be the most common is the WIzard and Dragon decks. The Vampire deck is probably the hardest to find as Teferi's Protection has shot up to like 30$. In my area both Wallmart and Target have had plenty of them overall though.
