By that logic, probably every civilization prior to, I dunno, the 1960s is full of cunts.

I know.  What's the magic cutoff of 1960?  Were humans replaced by benevolent aliens?  My eyes tell me that we are all still barbaric assholes.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

No, it was it was just an arbitrary point in time where it could be argued that one or two earthly civilizations sorta on paper had the whole rights for women and/or minorities almost figured out.  Certain parts of Sweden, possibly?  It sorta blows my mind sometimes to consider that - as shitty as it continues to be for people not born in the right place with the right gender and/or color - this is the best it's ever been.  People really are a fucking stain on this planet.

They're saying that the Friends Challenge for Arena is coming tonight/tomorrow depending on your time zone.

We may be posting our ID's shortly for some insane card related ways to become mortal enemies.  Which would be a change from just posting in Politics.


Did this end up happening? My kid made me take her to dump $50 on a couple new paper card sets yesterday and we both realized we didnít remember how to play. So we downloaded Arena to jog our memories but were surprised we couldnít find a way to play against each other. I was hoping to be able to put our live paper cards in our Arena decks to figure out some of the weirder rules but that seems to be no-go either.

Where is the best place for newbies to find out rules questions currently?

Yes, they put it in, it's awesome.

There's a wee 'two crossed swords' up the top right, just press that.  Then you put in your kids ID and challenge her.  She does the same, but with your ID.  Make sure you both pick decks and you'll be smacking shit out of each other in short order.

You get a basic pre-built deck and as you do quests you'll unlock all the others and there's a fair few of them.  Don't spend any Wildcards yet, just collect cards from quests and wins.


In terms of the rules, the Magic Site itself actually helps.  There's also tons of shit on youtube, watch some vids of LegendVD, Merchant or, if you have a female kid, Gabby Spartz or Alias.

I'm not sure about rules but if you want general strategy tips, this is a good (long) read.

For some reason (they sent me an email about my beta account), I ended up reinstalling MTGA and played a bunch this weekend. Mostly to do the daily/weekly quests for decks/cards/gold to buy packs. There's already some serious bullshit decks I've faced in the constructed queue.

Thanks all for the last few posts, especially for the streamer links. I found a code online PlayRavnica that comps three new booster packs in Arena, in case anyone missed that.

Good call.  I did that when I started but I'd forgotten all about it.  Useful for new players !

Also, some of the streamers will occasionally give out codes that Wizards give them to hand out.

I was bored, so I started Pillars of Eternity 2. It's fine as far as it goes, though the inventory management UI is even worse than the usual, except for the ship combat, which is fucking terrible for an allegedly core system of the game. Like: do NOT build a game where a ship is really important and then do ship combat like this. Ever ever.

I only made it about 3/4 of the way through Pillars 1. Do I need to finish it before picking up Pillars 2? Or is it not worth getting in the first place?

Started Elex. Enjoying it. Especially since I stopped playing No Man's Sky for it.

Still playing RDR2. I don't know where we are spoiler-wise, so I'll not chat about it.

I think the conclusion to Pillars 1 sort of has some narrative importance to Pillars 2, so, maybe? But it's the usual thing--you are given an option to just be effectively a new person and have the whole storyline be new to you--or to be the old person and constantly choosing the "I don't give two fucks about anything because I already did my time" responses.

still slogging along in World of tanks have t9 arty, t8 tank destroyer and a slew of tanks in lower tiers.  I enjoy it, but I know that I am playing it because there is nothing else out there that I am interested.  Not sure if I am having fun as much as I am determined to grind to getting a tier 10 vehicle.   Oh and outside of Arty I am cannon fodder half the time  DRILLING AND MANLINESS

Got sucked in and played MTG Arena for four hours straight last night. Went to bed at 3am. I blame Haemish.

Back into minecraft. It was only a matter of time before the annual visit.

Trying the new hotness, StoneBlock. Twist on SkyBlock, except you're in a 9x9 bubble of air inside solid stone. No bedrock, top layer is lava and bottom is void  this guy looks legit Otherwise it moves forward similar to other skyblocks, but the claustrophobia is actually pretty cool.

Stoneblock is pretty fun; I got to the midgame and hit the point where any major progress was going to require teching a new mod from 0 to endgame.

I noticed the quest book looked really poorly laid out.

I wish someone could worldcraft to the level the dude who did Blightfall did. I'll probably go back to Awakening at some point, it was a bit janky but the guy plays a lot like I do, so I like many of his design/balancing choices.

Sky, take a look at Exoria.  Itís somewhere between regrowth and blightfall.  It has some weird jank to it though, like using primal core to slow down progression and room size/material requirements.

Thanks, I've got my eye on a couple packs to try out when the grind or complexity gets to be too much in StoneBlock. I didn't get very far in Regrowth back in the day, I've also thought about going back and digging deeper into it.

Another one I'm waiting to get a bit more polish is Dungeons, Dragons, and Space Shuttles.

Does it have random loot? Also, is combat "click to attack?"

Not really (location is random), and yes. It's like Hyper Light Drifter digging through Rogue Legacy's pockets. In the dark. Surrounded by evil. And minimalist survival crafting.
