    [–] World of Warcraft medium to high graphical settings desktop. $800 progressiveoverload 1 points ago in buildapcforme

    I failed to mention in my OP that I am playing on a wireless internet connection (I have edited it to reflect that). Would that change anything in your build?

    [–] “people who are suicidal are attention seekers” progressiveoverload 1 points ago in depression

    Yes. Sometimes they are seeking attention. Attention in the form of help for their disease that nobody can see just by looking at them and sometimes they can't even see it when they talk to them. There is a reason the phrase "a cry for help" is cliched.

    [–] Can knowing Geometry help me with solving a Rubik's Cube? progressiveoverload 2 points ago in Geometry

    I have always read that group theory is the way to describe Rubik's cube solution.

    Ah, yeah the resist gear was a thing back then. I don't know, I am interested to see how I like that kind of thing when Classic comes out.

    [–] Beautiful Mountains at Dusk in Kun-Lai Summit progressiveoverload 3 points ago in wow

    I have an alt parked in Grizzly Hills and I can't bring myself to level her out of it.

    [–] Beautiful Mountains at Dusk in Kun-Lai Summit progressiveoverload 3 points ago in wow

    It really was. I quit near the end of MoP and came back a few weeks ago. I hated Shadowmoon Valley for some reason. It feels cramped and overstuffed. Pandaria was beautiful and fun in a way that blizzard seems to have moved away from. I can't put my finger on it.

    Is your MT a geologist?

    [–] Herbalism +1 progressiveoverload 1 points ago in wow

    It was awesome. Honestly e-peening in IF was great. (I wasn't a raider and never could e-peen back then). This is just a personal thing I guess, but if I could change one thing about the retail version I would get rid of transmog and pretend it never existed.

    Also hard to swallow: not all change is good.

    [–] Herbalism +1 progressiveoverload 1 points ago in wow

    Why wouldn't they maintain them? It is still subscription based.

    [–] Herbalism +1 progressiveoverload 1 points ago in wow

    I only raided during Cata so I don't remember how it was in vanilla. But wasn't there less pressure on every single member of the raid than there is now? Like won't it be still possible to kill bosses even if all of your raiders aren't min-maxing like pros with airtight rotations? Obviously if you're going for world firsts you'll need to tighten it up.

    This is one of the things that interests me about the project.

    [–] Herbalism +1 progressiveoverload -1 points ago in wow

    I've never really understood the hate for gear checks. IMO it adds more of a feel for progression. I mean I get that the RNG gods are capricious,but it is an MMO, there will be some dice rolling.

    [–] Herbalism +1 progressiveoverload 1 points ago in wow

    While I think you have a point about people mostly missing their youth, I don't agree with your overall point. There were a lot of things to like about vanilla that the modern game isn't doing anymore. The feel of the game was different back then. Not one person I have talked to about how the game has changed over the years cares that there are now all these sophisticated boss mechanics. It is not a substitute for the truly immersive world experience offered by vanilla and bc and wrath. I say this as a fan of MoP just so you don't think I have simply written off the modern retail version. (I quit right at the end up MoP until a few weeks ago so I can't say much about Wod and Legion)

    [–] Herbalism +1 progressiveoverload 2 points ago in wow

    As someone who would prefer the new models in vanilla (not like it is make-or-break for me though) the answer is simple: the character models are cosmetic only. And even though transmog is cosmetic I oppose it in vanilla for the same reason I oppose it in retail; it fundamentally alters the experience of the game. Sitting around in IF just minding your own business and then some dude rolls up in raid gear was one of the best things about the game. I'll never understand the transmog crowd.

    [–] You never quit wow for good. progressiveoverload 1 points ago in wow

    Yeah after resubbing the main thing I feel about wow is that all the classes feel the same now. They really went too far homogenizing everything.

    [–] You never quit wow for good. progressiveoverload 5 points ago in wow

    The art style also just doesn't quite work. It is hard to have a lot of different things on screen with a more realistic art style. Everything just turns to visual mush.

    [–] You never quit wow for good. progressiveoverload 3 points ago in wow

    Yeah something about that game felt not quite right.

    [–] Gregg Popovich dons 'Beto' hat at team practice progressiveoverload 5 points ago in politics

    This is actually really interesting. I knew there was something that was strangely familiar about those hats.

    [–] Trump Is Willing to Destroy the Constitution to Win an Election progressiveoverload 1 points ago in politics

    He's merely the figurehead, the embodiment of the problem.

    This has been the problem 100% of the time. The problem is all the morons who haven't seen shit like this coming.

    [–] Poll: Kavanaugh confirmation energizes Democrats more than GOP progressiveoverload 3 points ago in politics

    What ain't happening? What are you talking about? Dems aren't even going to manage to take the Senate back and you're leaning back in your chair like it is all over? This misplaced optimism is what got us into this garbage fire in the first place.

    [–] Poll: Kavanaugh confirmation energizes Democrats more than GOP progressiveoverload 3 points ago in politics

    It already was pro-rape culture when trump was elected. It is too late. Don't spread this stuff about how it doesn't work. Why doesn't it work? Because Kavanaugh was successfully appointed to the supreme court by a serial sexual harasser? It is stuff like this that gives the impression to people that the problem is less severe than it is. Literally everyone needs to be getting out and voting.
