2021.09.28 14:33 Mind-Available Community and Mihoyo disconnect
From all this drama what I see is a bg disconnect between company and community
I think Mihoyo don't understand their playerbase much, or there was no way this drama would happen
Now before someone say about them not caring about anniversary etc, I would like to remind you of the upcoming concert, it's pretty obvious that would have costed Mihoyo a lot calling all famous orchestra and organising all that, way more than just giving people 10 more wish which they are demanding. So even for half the price they paid for that event they could have made community happy.
But they didn't understand probably that all the community wants first is primos over anything, they don't care about concert or such irl which might have been more costlier.
I am afraid that seeing all this now they won't give fuck about such concert or such irl events and rather just handout primos, since that's way easier to make majority of community happy.....

2021.09.28 14:33 MillenniumGreed How the villain of each game relates to the theme of the game
Disclaimer: I haven’t played Thieves in Time, so feel free to add on to this.
Additional Disclaimer: Just felt a literary spiel coming on, this could all just be meant to be taken with a HUGE grain of salt or even seem like a reach lol.
Sly 1 was a game about family ties and legacy. Not just blood family, but the rapport we form with those around us and how that can be similar. Granted, this is a theme that’s pervasive throughout the entire franchise, but I think it’s strongest in the first two games.
Here we meet Sly Cooper, a man who was tied to his family through their thieving reputation. The Cooper clan was reputable and legendary, but there was still love and kinship amongst all of them. Their signature memento, the Cane, is an heirloom.
To add on, we see how the Cooper Gang, even in its infant stages in terms of conception and development, are a family. They help each other. They love each other. They have each other’s backs.
Clockwerk is a stark contrast to these seeded values. He is a man who, aside from his underlings in the Fiendish Five, has no real connections. He hates everything. He is envious, bitter, and spiteful, even willing to kill a little boy’s parents right in front of him, as well as fight every ancestor he’s ever had.
He is significant to the game’s theme because Clockwerk is the anti-family man. Family may be annoying, they aren’t the universal solvent to our problems, but they cushion it! It’s unclear what Clockwerk’s past was like, but it’s probably safe to say his family didn’t love him. Nor did he care enough to produce his own offspring.
Now, onto Sly 2.
Sly 2 is a game about brotherhood, teamwork, and kinship. It’s where the other members of the gang really come into their own, and all develop in the process. All make decisions that involve sacrifices.
Bentley sacrifices his sense of safety and fear in order to save his brothers, Sly and Murray, from the Contessa.
Murray also sacrifices his own safety and sense of self in order to get the Clockwerk wings, as well as face Rajan himself when Sly falls. And while it was an unintentional sacrifice, also loses his most beloved possession - the team van, in the midst of this warfare.
Sly gives himself up at the end so that his traumatized friends can leave and maybe find some peace again after the events that transpired.
With all that in mind, we must now answer the question - who was the main villain of Sly 2?
It can’t be Arpeggio. He was too insignificant.
It can’t be Carmelita. She was more of an ally this game.
It can’t be Dimitri. Too greasy sweet.
It can’t be Clockwerk. He’s dead.
With all those options exhausted, that only leaves Constable Neyla. A devious, underhanded tactician who backstabbed every faction she encountered. She has no loyalty, no ambition other than to make it to the top with no consideration of who she impacts in the process.
Neyla is the complete opposite of kinship and the camaraderie that we see throughout the game. Similar to her predecessor, she’s a petty, evil person with no regard for her fellow people. But unlike Clockwerk who was blatant in his nefariousness, Neyla was slimy and inconspicuous in her actions.
Sly 3 was a game about the themes in everything before it, but also, about honor. It was that despite being thieves, there’s still dignity in what a thief does. After all, Sly and his gang only steal from other criminals. It’s also about how you are nothing without your bonds, and despite it being a Sly intensive series, he needs Bentley and Murray as much as they need him.
Dr. M was a man who was malicious and envious of the clan whose affiliations he formerly belonged to. To the point he was plotting on his former “friend”’s treasure for years. And he bashes said friend at every opportunity.
He thinks horribly of almost everyone. His introduction is him killing a lowly guard. And he can’t seem to comprehend the rapport of the Cooper Gang when he realizes their love for each other is real.
Granted, it’s hard to say whether Dr. M’s feelings toward Conner were valid or not. But seeing how McSweeney was toward Conner, it’s safe to say that Dr. M was probably at least somewhat at fault.
Regardless, he relates to the theme of Sly 3 because Dr. M is a man who’s dishonorable. He is a man who feels wronged and will stop at nothing to prove a point. Even if the point is moot.

2021.09.28 14:33 69schrutebucks The attack dog next door is in heat again
Yup. I can see how swollen she is. They kept her male puppy and he's intact too. Yup, you know where I'm going with it. I'm sure an incest litter will be along at some point. The male has been getting more and more aggressive sounding every time i am near with my neutered male. Last night the neighbor kids, minus my kid because she isn't allowed over there, were playing outside of one of their bent up gates and the male got out. A 7 year old caught him. How? She jumped on his back and held him down while one of the idiotic parents in attendance got him back in the yard. The dog owners were inside and i highly doubt anybody bothered to tell them, not that they would fix the fence/gate anyway. This has only happened with their other dogs at least 10 times since they moved here.
The new guy from across the street brought his 2 year old over and referred to the male as a nanny dog to his kid and i just wanted so badly to tell them about our experiences with being "nannied" over there. Nobody learns until it happens to them.

2021.09.28 14:33 BeskarPaladin Fuel Storage Recommendations
Given the current insanity around petrol supply here in the UK it seems worthwhile (once the panic buying has calmed down of course) to store some fuel for future 'just in case'.
Does anyone have any recommendations for long term, good quality fuel cans/storage? Not much in the way of advice online and it's hard to trust Amazon reviews these days. Thanks in advance

2021.09.28 14:33 a2soup My take on Mono-U Delver for Standard Bo1! I had a ton of fun running this deck from low platinum to mythic this past week
I'm not much of a brewer (several choices here were informed simply by what I had in my collection), and I've basically only played aggro decks before. I had read about Delver decks, and was intrigued to see if I could make it work. I was shocked at how effective and downright fun to play this turned out to be! It's hard to go back to mono-white aggro for me now, it's so much less engaging of a play experience.
The gameplan is to stick a threat ASAP (Delver or Poppet Stitcher ideally), then bounce and counter all of the opponent's relevant plays while their clock runs out. The deck is 50% instants, so Delver usually flips promptly. Definitely a Bo1-only deck, as I doubt it would work without the Unsummons. Archmage Emeritus is often a dead draw, but has won me a number of games that went long. I'm considering cutting a Demilich in favor of another Hermit or Poppet Stitcher, as you basically never want two of them.
4x Delver of Secrets (MID) 1x Malevolent Hermit (MID) 2x Poppet Stitcher (MID) 2x Demilich (AFR) 1x Archmage Emeritus (STX) 4x Fading Hope (MID) 4x Unsummon (M20) 4x Chilling Trap (ZNR) 4x Curate (STX) 4x Divide by Zero (STX) 2x Into the Roil (CMR) 2x Startle (MID) 2x Flip the Switch (MID) 2x Reject (STX) 2x Jwari Disruption (ZNR) 20x Island (MID) Sideboard: 1x Environmental Sciences (STX) 2x Expanded Anatomy (STX) 1x Introduction to Annihilation (STX) 1x Introduction to Prophecy (STX) 1x Mercurial Transformation (STX) 1x Teachings of the Archaics (STX)
