I guess technically I should say "How Social Media Brainwashes Everybody."

But it's more prevalent with Millenials.

Also, I never said they were wrong. They're just brainwashed. They can't help it.

Scorch is very useful there. also Northern Realms has a free warhorn on siege as skill, and scoiatel can disable a hero ability. Those are leaders you gotta find but.. well, you can find them

Scorch isn't very useful if you use a strong bond deck yourself, as you're just as likely to nuke your own cards. It's just too situational. I find VillenTretenMerth to be far more useful for that purpose.

I think the "Disable hero" ability is actually a Nilfgaard leader perk, not a Scoiatel one. The entire Scoiatel deck is garbage anyway, I wouldn't be caught dead playing it.

After I played the first two Skellige decks and they pulled out the Cerys+2 warrior maidens and Cerys+3 warrior maidens trick on me, none of the others have actually ever done it. Also nice, no skellige deck player seems to play Scorch, so I just spy/strong bond them into oblivion in 2 rounds now.

In reality, the Northern Realms (not the Skellige) deck is just stupidly OP.

Edit: Fixed error.

The new Skellige deck is just kind of straight up bullshit.

Play Cerys: Horde 3 Warrior Maidens, who strong bond. Boom, one card, 58 (!!) points of damage on the fucking board. For most decks, 58 damage is a good fucking ROUND.

They should have called it the "We don't know how to program decent Gwent AI, so we just created this bullshit deck in an effort to have it be challenging." deck

Like playing against the monster deck, make sure your deck isn't full of melee cards and make sure you have at least one frostbite card.

Yeah it's not that I'm not winning against it, but it just feels cheap. Surrendering a round is a valid tactic, and having a deck just automatically play 2 cards from the graveyard "because it's round 3" is just bullshit. If the picks are lucky, the Skellige deck pulls two of your spies from his graveyard and gets FOUR cards in his hand. FOUR. How is that a perk that's even remotely comparable to

Northern Realms: Pick a card if you win a round
Monsters: One monster card stays on the table
Nilfgaard: Win a tie. (happens roughly once every 500 rounds)
Scoiatel: You may pick if you want to go first in the first round. (lol, what a bonus!!)

I mean, it's so laughably overpowered especially compared to Nilfgaard and Scoiatel.

I like some of the changes they made, such as horde cards now working on Siege and Ranged rows as well (so their entire deck can't just get ganked by a single frostbite, like the monster deck can), and some of the other things it does just seem weirdly situational, but that Cerys+Horde+Bond combo is just ludicrous. If he already has a warhorn lying on the melee row, playing Cerys would put 106(!!!!) freaking points down. WITH ONE CARD!

Edit: My math is even off, I think. Warrior Maidens are 6 each, so 3 strong bonds would make them 18 each, so 54+10=64 without warhorn or 54x2+10=118 o_O with warhorn.

That Matish dude must be realllllllllllllllllly fucking pissed that he lives in the same state the warrant was signed. Because it seems pretty likely that all the people who got charged and live in the other 49 states are going to go free.

I was watching "The Departed" last night and the GF calls a croissant a "french donut".

I wanted to punch Boston in the face.

That's a feeling every reasonable American should have 100% of the time.

Yeah the PC version is a mediocre port, at best. Wait for the $10 sale! No sooner. I loved JC2, didn't care much for 3 and it sits unplayed for a long time now.

The port is fine. And it's weird, because they genuinely improved every single mechanism from JC2.

The driving is (substantially)better. The movement is better. The grappling is better. The parachuting is better. The shooting is better.

But the entire world is SO.FUCKING.DULL. Nothing happens in it. There's nothing to see. Entire swaths of it are just empty grassland and rocks. There's no variety. Every fucking city is exactly the same. Their main capital city is 3 streets and 4 skyscrapers. They made the most boring grass&rocks sandbox imagineable. There's just no fun to be had in it.

And these DLCs do absolutely NOTHING to deal with that stupidly huge oversight.

Did they update the combat? i don't remember it being so fluid actually.

The movement system got updated, which fed over into the combat system, and they made all Geralt's attacks interruptable so you weren't stuck with an attack while a monster was gearing up to gank you.

I just now realized that it's entirely possible the game's combat was much more pants when it first came out. I didn't start playing it until patch 1.07 or 1.08, by which time it may have been measurably improved. So my discussions regarding combat may be one-sided from the perspective of the "better" combat.

As the combat is now, I think it's fine. It's likely not the greatest combat system in the world, but if you spend some time learning it, Geralt is a total badass and will do what you want him to do.

I wouldn't say she's worth "nothing."

When she goes to jail for widespread fraud, she will be worth a few bucks for every day she works while she's incarcerated.

I do some rendering work and 16 threads would be mighty useful, I could literally game while I encode (cpu affinity ftw).

Well, if you've got a spare $1700, Intel would be happy to oblige you.
