Why, KS, did you stop using Amazon Payments...

This.

With hope it will get funded and they'll have a separate pay-pal thing on their own web site, later, to try to raise more.

This so much :/

I'm not incredibly fond of the entire idea of e-sports in the first place, but if there's any one thing that stands out about the potential it has it's that short of an outright disability nobody has an unfair advantage over another based on any physical criteria.

Unless pros these days have learned to whack the spacebar with their penis in tournaments or something for an APM advantage, I guess I don't follow it closely enough to know.


Posts like these would make sense if there wasn't two separate tournaments.

I think many organizers, especially just a few years ago, wouldn't allow trans gamers on the team at all. But they are allowing it now and unfortunately have put restrictions on it to prevent abuse. It sounds ridiculous but maybe they've already encountered side switching not done in good faith (for lack of a better phrase). Obviously the solution is to just do away with the separate tournaments or if there's opposition to that make a third co-ed tournament.

EDIT: You know what, the "gay" part of this rule is really weird. I was initially not comprehending that I guess. I hope that's a translation error.

Why the fuck are there 2 tournaments anyway? I dont see how being female, male, transgender gay, straight, shit-faced, etc. makes a difference in a fucking E-sport!

The moment you expect consistency in this world, is the moment you notice there is none to be had in this world.

Well, I wasn't kidding about not knowing much about it...I figured "all feminine tournament" meant the tournament was only using female characters. I really don't follow e-sports at all.

On the other hand, I'm not sure it changes anything... I guess it didn't occur to me that they would separate the field between male and female participants for e-sports when there's no real difference to give an advantage to justify it.

Yeah, I didn't read the article either, and had the same problem. Why are they having separate gender-based tournaments to begin with?

Then you missed nothing, because the article doth not say!

Surprised no one has mentioned ublock. All the goodness of Adblock, less of the bloat, and fully open source. I've been using it for weeks on Chrome and Safari.

uBlock blocks way more than just ads by default, it's not even COMPARABLE to adblock, uBlock is more like Disconnect

So why would anyone mention that as an Adblock alternative? Adblock has ease of use functions that allow you to whitelist specific frames on a site and thus unblock things from overzealous filter list expressions, uBlock does not. Though it's good block-everything in paranoia mode, it broke too much of my Internet for me to even bother. Your mileage will obviously vary depending on what sites you visit regularly. Using uBlock for example completely broke videosift for me. And that's just not acceptable

Oh please, if they really wanted they could just literally remake it. They already have working Homeworld 1 in their fancy engine, and Cataclysm just expanded on that anyway.

Remaking a game without the source is a significantly more difficult undertaking than updating an existing game with a new engine. Do you know exactly what the speed, turn rates, damage, fire rates, AI behaviours of the beast are? Neither do Gearbox.

So yeah, they could remake it, but it would be a big job and then people like you would just whinge when they charged full price for it.

I already whinge when they ask for any price considering that I own both HW1 and HW2 already, why pay for a SLIGHTLY upgraded graphics in the SAME missions? I wanted Homeworld 3 when it comes down to it, not some silly remakes. But the dev I don't want HW3 from is most definitely Gearbox

Selfies caused a deadly plane crash.

Darwin award winner.

Anyone flying at night without an attitude indicator earned that award even before the selfie. And if there was such a device on board, there is no fucking way you can ever lose "spatial awareness" unless the pilot was on drugs or a retard.

I think there is more to this story, a selfie itself even at full night with flash, does not ever make you blind. And even if you are blind as a stone, someone in the cockpit surely can still see the AI, which is a pretty damn important device when doing night flights.

That would require actual work from Gearbox.

I know... that's an outlandish expectation apparently ;p

I still think Telltales take on GOT is one of the weakest things they have done, story wise it reeks of deus ex machina and hand-waving everywhere. Choices have little to literally NO influence on anything, and there are way too frigging many characters to *PLAY*. Wolf Among us was great because it was MY Bigby, Walking dead at least had characters I cared about and let me play Clem and had superior writing, but already there the writing took a nose dive with episodes being much too short and with background info being much too rare.

And I say it again, but how they thought implementing show characters was a good idea befuddles me to no end. Next to them our own played characters look like empty shells of dummies. (not surprising, given the huge swath of story we associate with these characters due to having seen the series)

Just a funny tid-bit.. when reading this what I thought it would be was a game about the mare that death rides in the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse mythology.. which would have made a far better game than this

So inadvertently I spoiled this game to me because.. now I want to see the game I thought it would be, and not the game it is.. blimey

Had these been games sold physically at a brick and mortar gaming store with all the other details the same, would you have the same reaction?

I would highly doubt 2 armed mafia enforcers would knock on your door in the night, storm in, take your game away, wipe it from your PC just in case, and leave, if the same thing had transpired with physical goods.

To Ubisoft this isn't even a loss, they get compensation from whatever fraud insurance Origin/EA has. So the initial reaction was imo, a bit over the top.

The real issue is that CC's are too easy to abuse, so purchases with CC should have a 7 day run-time at the very least.

Also, we're not talking about key "stores" here. The platforms in question (Kinguin/G2A) operate as middlemen/portals. They help sell keys from person A to person B and offer buyer protection. The keys that are sold via these portals are very often of questionable legitimacy because why would any seller be able to sell an unused key at considerable discounts? Right. In many cases the keys have simply been stolen.
These portals are effectively serving as fences on many transactions and should not be supported by any gamer with an ounce of integrity because you're supporting organized crime.

Then I am sorry, I was under the assumption we are talking about a key store not a key trading hub
