  1. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    I don't really blame Karius for the 2nd goal. Like yes it went through but Bale was totally unpressured when he made that shot, there was so much space for him because the defence was torn 8 ways. Wasn't great but it felt more of an inevitability given how the Madrid midfield had torn Liverpool to pieces. Match was over largely when Saleh went off and Madrid began dominating possession, made Liverpool look like Valencia at that point
  2. I'd drop out of uni and take a career doing what I love doing in a heartbeat even at 24, sadly I honestly just don't have anything in life I actually have enough of a passion for to say I want to do it super badly. Which is why I'm grinding through this degree I only sort of want and watching people who are doing the same thing as I am but it's their passion fly by me. Maybe my profound advice would be not do a little bit of everything in all my choices and interests, but I actually really did enjoy and still do enjoy doing a little bit of everything, but that's not a very helpful thing to build your life around.
  3. You've been shafted there's no way you can rescue this. I'd go to the professor, take a journal search in whatever journal database you use, and show him there's actually no relevant research articles for you to cite on this and beg and grovel for something that there's legitimate cite-able research for. Professors are good people if you say "well there's no papers on this" which is an actually great excuse they'll be fair and help you change the topic. Literally those two things sounds like you're playing boggle or some sort of word association game. Idk what the original assignment specification is and whether it's about death penalty or the environment or some random assignment in general, but try and come up with some alternative options for your grovel session you can ask to research instead.
  4. Legit just go to an event, side in 5 +3k life points game 2 if game 1 took more than 25 minutes, then if you draw a single one of those cards just start slow playing. Legit I'm pretty sure I can stall any single one of my turns out for 5-10 minutes just by asking for a response after every interaction then taking a deep breath/shuffling my hand, playing another card/leaving a phase and keep going. If you watch the clock and you have a LP lead you can almost certainly stall until an opponent can't take their battle phase and put their life above yours, it's pretty much a joke.

    What a heart attack of a game
  6. Or DNF account. Or Pojo account. etc etc. That warrants a free one time change. IK rei edited the system settings for name changes to something like 9 months or a year because people were getting trigger happy, that's fair enough and it's a good policy I agree with, having not changed this name since about 2005. This is just an addendum. It makes everyone's life a lot easier if all your names line up across multiple sites so people get recognised, so I'm happy to change your name manually. IF what you ask for is within reason and you're not using this opportunity just to get a free name change for the shits and giggles. Because like common sense, if you just made a new DN account to say "hey can you change my name to my DN account" I'll just suspend you for bullshitting me and exploiting the system. That DN account with your name on it better be a) the DN account you are most well known for and b) be older than 30 days minimum. I'm absolutely never going to change your name the first time ever again unless there's a spelling mistake or somesuch. This is strictly one way so that you can have the opportunity to use the name you're most well known by here

    Real winning again and treating the Champions league like their own personal league cup is just as bad tbh

    Surely a true aficionado would be uploading photos from his Pixel 2 to his google drive then downloading them to his samsung bloatware burner phone for the true Android Tinder experience

    That means Kevin is going to translate it as touchstick right?
  11. Thingyman's Mafia Universe Championship Season 5 Voting

    Are the games in progress public when the actual thing happens? Watching a mafia game where Malcolm lives 3 days live would be absolutely hilarious

    Reckon he has still got it as a coach, if he goes to PSG or another top club next year he will absolutely do well. Arsenal turned into a toxic environment under him but a lot of that was the level of fan expectations for the club vs the money, and the Ozil/Sanchez situation being awful for the dressing room.
  13. ^ Actual story written about actual human beings, beautiful writing, insane area design, great soundtrack and well paced grind/gameplay. Easily better than FF6/7/9/10/Chrono Trigger in my mind.
  14. Top 10 games of the last TEN years

    Divinity 2 surely makes the top 15, the issue is the last act is garbage and a hot mess of bugs and unfinished content in general. PoE2 will be a rip snorter IMO, the White march expansion for PoE was Baldur's gate 2 level quality, but nobody played it. I bet they replicate that and it'll be an extraordinary game Divinity OS 1? Probably normal, IMO upping the difficulty just gives greater health bars and isn't really that fun but I honestly don't remember. I rarely turn up difficulties on games where it's just higher health bars, only on very few games do I actually sign up for the challenge mode.
  15. Top 10 games of the last TEN years

    Not in english and there wasn't a fanpatch so I reckon that counts. Dota 2 I would not classify as the best of its genre by any stretch, the game is less enjoyable than League/HoTs between zero and 500 hours of total playtime which I think is a pretty good criteria for saying it's not the industry leading best game IMO. Dota2s appeal is that the mastery curve of its micro is unlimited and far more in depth than other MOBAs, but on the flipside its mechanics are actually pretty awful to learn and it puts a huge mechanical barrier on its accessibility. I ultimately don't really value a game based on how micro intensive it is and I think the point of MOBAs is you're supposed to be playing a game, not executing FGC style combos with a high level of mastery. League on the other hand is far less punishing mechanically and more of a game knowledge test. It'd be like if all three Starcraft races were Zerg level punishing to newer players, that'd actually impact the enjoyability of the game overall. If HoTs XP mechanic was slightly better it'd edge league easily as the best MOBA to actually play, but the XP soak mechanics are super inane. ME3 doesn't change the formula the storytelling is just 10/10 IMO. If you didn't like ME2 gameplay or storytelling you won't like 3, same engine same loading screen barrage, but if you liked ME2 but wanted more space opera less space sitcom it's a step up.
  16. Top 10 games of the last TEN years

    It's rare for gems to actually outshine GTA5 or Witcher 3, and it's only a 10 game list. The Nameless mod is probably the only one that I can recall and would actually bump an all time great title off. Titles like West of Loathing, Underrail, Age of Decadence, Ghost of a Tale, Sunless Sea, Sorcery!, 80 Days, Sleeping Dogs, are actually whopping gems but don't really make a top 10 list over the literal GTA 5. Warhammer 2 and Kingdome Come I agonised the most over because Warhammer 2 is actually the best total war game by a huge margin but the business model is ridiculous, and Kingdom Come felt like the most recent thing I played bias, and it peaks early. Divinity 2 as well. Fall From Heaven 2, Nehrim would have made the cut but they are more than 10y old so :shrug: And yeah games that aren't on my Steam list and aren't on my hard drive can easily get forgotten.

  18. Top 10 games of the last TEN years

    I don't see how the game that arguably kicked off the free to play model in video games, period, and the one I'd probably give the best MOBA prize to even after the test of time is irrelevant. It's fundamentally a good MOBA even if you hate the MOBA genre for destroying the RTS community. Also the Bioshock games have aged fairly badly. Too many AAA FPS engines are far, far superior to Unreal engine 3 games.
  19. One Piece Manga

    I'm still confused at what just happened to be honest
  20. Recommend me some games please 2018

    Controversial opinion, Nier is a bad game with possibly the single sickest story and setting in video games because the Devil May Cry formula of health bars and chaining together whacko combos is not that fun. Also FUCK ME WHERE IS MY PC PATCH
  21. What games are you currently playing?

    Ni No Kuni is an interesting game, can't quite say I recommend it it has its ups and downs. Beautiful art and I love Evan he's so cute but the trash mob count is off the charts and a few other things I can't quite put my finger on.
  22. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    I don't think you can predict the outcome to City vs the Spanish duo at all. It'll come down to that trio, but the fact is Barca and Madrid are absolutely anything but walkovers for City. City could win out in a blaze of glory, or they could choke with a huge score vs Barca/Madrid. If you base the form on how the teams have looked in regular season matches City have looked the best in the world, but based on where I reckon Madrid and Barca will be when they actually play the high stakes game(s) vs City, it will be a very different story when their team sheets are made of solid gold.
  23. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    Um Liverpool would get bent over by pretty much anyone, I think the only "big" club they would hope to be matched with is Juventus. City are just as bad as Barca/Real/Bayern
  24. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    City vs Liverpool, wow City got lucky as hell. No Juvie/Bayern/Spaniards Guardiola u lucky shit
  25. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    McTominay looked passable which is weird and unusual. It was still a fiesta just after half time, United lost their compose completely in the 2nd half. United might not look good or composed, but they have about 8 top of Premier League defenders and Jose is a smart, smart coach about how he uses them.
