    [–] Anybody having trouble building on Xbox?? racast5 1 points ago in FortNiteBR

    Yeah sometimes when I switch to my build menu it bugs out and won't let me place anything. I have to switch to gun and back before I can build. Gotten me killed more than once

    [–] "Yo, wanna play Fortnite?" - "No. I quit." - "Wtf, what happened?" racast5 6 points ago in FortNiteBR

    Haha yep literally everyone on the subreddit is one person and all opinions belong to that one guy.

    [–] "Yo, wanna play Fortnite?" - "No. I quit." - "Wtf, what happened?" racast5 1 points ago in FortNiteBR

    Actually I will take this one. In minesweeper, it doesn't make sense that squares are revealed in seemingly-arbitrary swaths. Either your character is able to detect mines multiple units away from where you clicked, in which case the game should be much easier, or he shouldn't be able to, and it should be much harder.

    In monopoly, it doesn't make sense that you don't pay rent on a property the first time you land on it. The bank owns it, and should be charging rent. Especially since players don't have the option to not charge rent. It also doesn't make sense that you can't buy a property that you're not on, unless another player has landed on it. Was that property not on sale before that person landed on it? Why can properties be traded when no one is on the properties? We already established that ownership of properties can only be transferred when someone is physically present on it. Was your player magically transported to the property to buy it and then magically transported back? Someone should have to be on the property to trade it!

    You know what, you're right. Let's fix every logical inconsistency because nobody wants balance anyways. All snipers are hitscan now because it doesn't make sense that lower caliber weapons have infinite travel speed. You take fall damage from three stories but a jump pad doesn't break your legs so all jump pads should need to cost 50 hp when using them. Weapons having different headshot multipliers is inconsistent so we should fix that. Your player runs through water slow but it doesn't affect his ability to jump so you shouldn't be able to jump in water. There's just so many things you can pick out. Asking for realistic consistency is stupid. The game is supposed to balanced and fun and that's it.

    [–] "Yo, wanna play Fortnite?" - "No. I quit." - "Wtf, what happened?" racast5 11 points ago in FortNiteBR

    That's asking for realism. The consistency they're aiming for is that everything is balanced. There's very little realistic consistency in any game. I don't know why you're surprised by this one. The fact that you can carry 5 heavy weapons, unlimited ammo, and enough wood, brick, and steel to build a fortress doesn't bother you? Name one game without a single logical inconsistency and I'll paypall you $100.

    [–] "Yo, wanna play Fortnite?" - "No. I quit." - "Wtf, what happened?" racast5 29 points ago in FortNiteBR

    The fact that you can instantly spawn structures and support castles with a single wall doesn't make sense either. It's about game balance, not about making the game as close to real life as possible.

    [–] How to avoid enemy getting chest you open. racast5 2 points ago in FortNiteBR

    The best way to get whats in the chest is by not opening it. Position yourself so you're looking across the front of the chest and spam the pick up item button. You'll get 3/4 items just about every time.

    See the bottom. Hand is considered part of the ball when in contact with it. This is clean

    [–] Fortnite summed up racast5 1 points ago in FortNiteBR

    Technically yeah but the spread on shotguns is still way less than most people assume. You can hit moving targets from 50 meters consistently if you're practiced, and you're usually never hitting with just 1 pellet even though a clay pidgeon is like 10 times smaller than a persons head. It's never the bloom that makes you miss your shot.

    [–] Fortnite summed up racast5 3 points ago in FortNiteBR

    The random spread and bloom in the game is way worse than in real life. Recoil is completely different from bloom. Your bullet isn't gonna veer left when you're aiming right at someone because your gun has recoil. And professional skeet/trap shooters hit over 95% of their moving targets consistently. The pellets don't randomly decide to pull a pulp fiction and outline the enemy. If you unload 20 bullets with an automatic rifle on a target from 20 feet, you're hitting it. There's no 'damn rng' like that in real life

    [–] Why The Expanse should never ever return to SyFy channel. racast5 9 points ago in scifi

    If you're not worried about fuel, there's benefits to constantly accelerating. You can create a slight artificial gravity, and you get to your destination much much quicker. Given we don't generally see the roci with the engines powered down, it's safe to say they're generally always accelerating. It was even a plot point this season about tuning their engines to burn with a different heat signature. If they were really worried about being found, they could turn off their engines and float, which I think they did in the first season.

    [–] Why The Expanse should never ever return to SyFy channel. racast5 25 points ago in scifi

    Even so, the audience for hard sci-fi shows generally overlaps pretty heavily with tech savvy people looking to stream online. It's odd that syfy channel of all channels is so far behind when it comes to understanding the importance of being ahead of the curve with technology.

    [–] But is it good? racast5 3 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    19.2-22.4 g/$ protein in a hot n ready (cheese/pepperoni). 23 g/$ in a mcdouble.

    [–] Episode Discussion - S03E06 "Immolation" racast5 12 points ago in TheExpanse

    The difference is that syfy is only part of the funding for the expanse. Netflix and amazon still pay for streaming rights. And Alcon still owns the rights to any dvd/episode sales. It can go both ways though. They don't have to make up 100% of the funding, but probably not a lot of people want only the first day rights without us/international streaming or other sales attached.

    [–] GAME THREAD: Golden State Warriors (58-24) @ Houston Rockets (65-17) - (May 16, 2018) racast5 1 points ago in nba

    lol no one was saying that when his first game back he dropped like 28 points in 20 minutes.

    [–] Senate votes in favor of overturning FCC on Net Neutrality racast5 3 points ago in technology

    Since the 90s we've had a recession every 8-10 years or so give or take.

    What could possibly go wrong from extrapolating on 2-3 data points?

    [–] Patch 4.2 Undocumented Changes and Bug Megathread racast5 1 points ago in FortNiteBR

    It's happened to me one other time on another door. I was in a squad and no one on my team could pass through it. I forget where it was though. Maybe it's just a few doors though.

    [–] Save ‘The Expanse’: Fan Campaign To Find New Home For Canceled SyFy Show Appears To Be Gaining Real Traction racast5 1 points ago in television

    It's at least the best sci-fi in production right now, and the best one in the last few years for sure. It's nice to finally see a good sci fi with modern production value. Personally I'd put it in my top 5 but I guess that's all subjective.

    [–] Donovan Mitchell said he plans to re-watch all 97 games from his rookie year before coming back in September for training camp racast5 14 points ago in nba

    Endless options is really overselling it. If you're all about outdoor living then Utah is one of the best places in the U.S. to live. If you enjoy a big city and night life, Salt Lake is absolutely lacking. Our downtown is like..four square blocks. Last call at every bar is 1 A.M. No draft beer above 4% ABV and no strong cocktails. Most things are closed on Sundays and after 9 P.M. in general. The 'clubs' here pale in comparison to ones in larger cities like L.A, Miami, New York. The outdoors are phenomenal but most 18-30 year old NBA players are looking for good night life, not gorgeous hikes.

    [–] Why are people sleeping on the Rockets? racast5 7 points ago in nba

    Warriors had tons of injuries this year on key players and had times where almost every starter was out of the game. They're still the defending champions and 73 win team+KD and the rockets haven't really done anything yet to prove they can outclass that. Maybe they can. But we all saw how much the 1 seed mattered in cavs vs raptors.
