No they won't. The cockroaches thing is a myth.

They have specific adaptations that make it nearly guaranteed they survive a nuclear Holocaust.

- They are resistant to radiation effects and the genetic damage it causes.

- They evolve extremely rapidly, moreso than other insects

- Their gut chemistry is such that they can digest nearly any form of organic matter.

- Females are capable of producing offspring parthenogenetically. They don't need males.

- They can thrive in nearly any climate

- They live in nearly every corner of every continent

But they'd still have to welcome their new Water Bear Overlords.

Or you could just let your employees work from home, since that's the world we live in now. I'm tech and work for a company that takes security seriously as we handle extremely sensitive data, and yet through our IT department and simple software, we're able to keep all employee laptops secure when working remotely.

There's really no excuse, only bad reasons that your manager keeps you in the office.

Employees don't get paid enough to lose their time and money for the commute they have to do, not to mention the risks involved with that commute.

Unless you work in a silo, you will never be as effective at home than in the office. You need to be at meetings (conference calls and video calls are infinitely worse), and you need to be able to do hallway talks, whatever. Not only does it build trust and bonds, but it's a huge part of where innovation comes from.

If you have a job that you really work independently of anyone else, or if you have a job with zero room for innovation, it can work. Otherwise, you need to be in the office more often than not. There's a big reason why most of the "work anywhere" companies of the late 00s have reversed those policies and started bringing their employees back in.

News Comments > Epic on the Future of Paragon
2. Re: Epic on the Future of Paragon Jan 17, 2018, 12:13 Beamer
 
This type of transparency can be counter-intuitive. While the corest of the core may try to recruit new players, anyone else reading it will see the writing on the wall and decide it isn't worth investing time.

That said, I'm impressed Epic continues. I never see Paragon discussed (though I mostly only discuss games here.) Clearly they committed for a good amount of time. And have tried making some significant changes to make it something fun.

Their strategy seems to be sort of Early Access - release something, and refine with community involvement. I see pros and cons, but I generally like how they're doing it. Is UE4 still getting any attention?

BR on PC is fun... until you run into cheaters, which doesn't take very long. Although, I've found I can mostly avoid them by joining matches with PS4 friends.

3-4 months ago i would have agreed with you, but i hardly come across any stripties anymore.

Hell, i just did a quick look and there's very few public hacks that support fortnite now and the ones that do are generally detected anyway.

That's one area they have actually done a pretty good job at, but they really needed to, seeing they are F2P and were infected with them not so long ago.

PUBG could definitely learn a thing or two from Epic in this regard.

That said i'm having a break until they fix their shooting mechanics... the RNG/Bloom drives me nuts.

I also wish they'd bring back the explosive only mode, the regular mode is starting to get a stale with all the campers and base builders which they seems to be encouraging more and more with each patch.
Its a UE4 game. That means there are dozens of cheats for it. Even if you dont find them.
I just did a quick search and as I said, there are dozens of recent ones.
Not to mention, if you get banned in this game, you simply create a new account and are able to play again in a matter of minutes.

But I do agree on their RNG crap. Shortly before I uninstalled it, I shot someone with a golden SCAR 6 times from medium range and all shots missed, even though he didnt move and I aimed perfectly and even crouched while doing it. He turned around, shot at me 3 times with an M16, all of them hit and I was dead with full health and shield.
I have no issues killing people close up or with a sniper, where this RNG doesnt make much difference, but using assault rifles from medium to long range, is just cancer.
From videos Ive seen that people with controller hit far better with it than people who play with mouse/keyboard.

Funny, the game has been my pretty much go to game since it was released.

6 months ago the game was infested with hacks (streamers were quitting, forum was full of complaints, and i was enountering them constantly) then Epic changed their detection methods and added battleye amongst other things. Script kiddies pretty much disappeared from that point forward.

You may find plenty of UE4 hacks out there, but i guarantee the vast majority of them are detected in fortnite. You will be lucky to get 5 minutes into a match before they get banned - sure, they can make a new account and hop back in but they'll get banned just as quick. The kiddies will get sick of this pretty quickly.

Yeah, their combat update / bloom removal looks promising... so i will check back in once that makes it onto their limited time mode as the RNG BS is by far my biggest complaint with the game now.

TBH explosive only mode ruined the game for me, it had no RNG, it had no campers, it was just all fast paced mayhem... and now it's gone. The regular mode now feels so slow with random combat mechanics to boot.

They are hardly detected nowadays. People are hiding them better. They can only be detected if the system knows them. A few changes and they dont know them anymore. Same problem in PUBG, which also uses Battleye. If they were detected, they wouldnt even be able to enter a game or would be banned right after they join a game. In these hacking threads, which you can easily find via Google, they all say "undetected" and have a recent date.

You can see in plenty of recent "cheater videos" that they arent detected until someone reports them while they watch that cheater do his thing. Only a few minutes after reporting they get banned. That implies someone living is actually sorting out these cheaters. And of course cheaters notice that quickly and try to hide it better, as I said.
But that also means they wont be banned instantly again, if they make a new account, because they werent banned because the system detected their hacks, but because some admin saw them playing, obviously cheating.

Yes, they actually are detected. Most of them don't even bother supporting fortnite anymore, but hey, knock yourself out and let us know how you get on.

Reporting does squat, it's their auto detection methods that have been doing the damage as seen by all the people why get banned before they even land or get to fire a shot (nothing to do with admins).

The truth of the matter is, nobody who has played fornite in the last 2-3 months complains about hackers... they just aren't a problem anymore.

PUBG on the other hand...

Well, I just told you facts you can easily check for yourself. But you tucking tail now means you know it, but you dont want to admit your mistake.

You dont even realize that you actually think that Battleye detects hacks perfectly in one game, but not in the other. Both very popular games, and the one you claim where it detects them, is actually a F2P game, while, as you should know very well as a veteran, that F2P games always were the most cheater infested games ever.

Good one though... "nobody complains about hackers", "they just arent a problem anymore" in a F2P UE4 online game. Seriously, I laughed quite a while.

Searching "fortnite cheater" on YouTube and sorting by upload date gives a good amount of hits from yesterday alone. I don't know if it's actual cheating or people whining about being killed, but yeah, there certainly seems to be people on there now being accused of cheating very regularly.

He relies upon two fallacies:

1) That most, or even many, "libtards" think communism is a good idea.

2) That China operates under communism. Per The Economist, it's more Crony Capitalism. Or, as I call it, capitalism for the rich, communism for the poor.

Heh.

I mean, the algorithm is the rhythm method, which, if done correctly is 93%-95% effective. The point of the app was to make sure you were doing it correctly.

Which still means that 5-7 out of every 100 women using it would get pregnant, unless using another form of birth control. Which everyone on the rhythm method should be. Seems like not all of them got that memo...

Hey, don't get me wrong. I'm all for creators/ sellers of cheats getting arrested and put away to stop the madness.
I just am not sure China will actually crackdown in any serious nature on someone bilking a bunch of videogame nerds in other countries out of Millions ...

I'm thinking in less than a month most of them are out , doing it all over again & again & again ....

China's economy is becoming more and more domestic. They're starting to get their own IP and are enforcing these kinds of laws more. It's in their best interest. They're much less the pariah they were, although they still have tons of corporate espionage going on against foreign companies.

The change is rapid, but they're still behind. It's helping that they're catching up to the West, and surpassing in some areas.

Like clean energy. They're investing billions upon billions more than us. Even if they're less efficient and effective, that added investment adds up quickly. And Beijing is getting less smoggy, so they're starting to really look into the impact they're causing on their own cities.

Cellphones are another area they're catching up rapidly, but after what happened to Huwai during CES, the lack of trust will hold them back.

Can't argue with that.

Can we not turn this into another stupid political tug-o-war, please? I'm so sick of seeing 'liberal trash'-this and 'conservative-ass' that, it's everywhere. Yesterday, some discussion on the first UFO sighting of the year (in Mexico, and it looks legit) devolved into back and forth bickering about Trump, Obama and whether America was trash now or before. I'm so very close to not getting online at all anymore because you can't escape it, no matter where you go.

Anyway, this happening in China doesn't surprise me much. When it starts happening here, then I'll start worrying. What's the saying? 'When they came for my Chinese comrades, I said nothing. When they came for my Korean friends, I told no one. When they finally shut down PUBG, it was too late to do anything, so I played Overwatch instead'...

=-Rigs-=

Thinking the Mexican UFO looked legit is what Obama wants you to think!

scary world we live in now where you can get arrested for cheating in a video game.

That's just Fucked up. There is no other way to put it.

They weren't just cheating, they were "creating and distributing" cheats.

Given how many people here say they won't play PUBG due to rampant cheating, it's safe to say those creating cheats are costing the company revenue. They're being disruptive. If someone walks into a store in the US and is disruptive and hurting revenue, they can be arrested.

I see it more as a civil thing, as Epic has treated it in the US, but I understand why it could be seen as criminal. And I'd wager that the cheating in PUBG drops pretty significantly after this.

First thing, he's not conservative. He's stated he falls far more closely to social-libertarian. Second he's always claimed he was a provocateur, and that's always what's made him famous--and he's always given the same advice "if you don't want me to be famous by doing this, ignore me." The real question you should be asking, is why were conservative-leaning, or libertarian people banned and temp banned when they used the language(or exact verbatim) of "big left-wing names" word-for-word. That includes journalists, reporters, authors, and so on.

Did you just call the star pupil of Breitbart "not conservative?"

And you respect, and even like, Milo, don't you?

Wait, I thought the charitable explanation for why people support Trump is that it had nothing to do with race and solely to do with economics: that rural, ex-industrial areas are economically depressed, and that their residents feel left behind and looked down upon by the thriving urban areas. If you contend that in fact rural America is better off than urban America -- laughable but lets run with it -- then why exactly do you support Trump? Because he'll call predominantly black and brown countries shitholes and can can sexually assault women and get away with it?

Who says I support Trump? I just dislike leftist ideologues more (they've led to the death of way more people, especially in the 20th century). Secondly, having lived and worked in suburbs, small Appalachian towns, and in large, urban cities (including teaching in majority minority schools), the sheer danger to the resident of any small town is nothing compared with the slums of Baltimore, Shitcago, or Detroit. The primary difference is the arrogance of the urban elites. Somehow they feel they can look down from their upper middle-class enclaves (I guarantee neither you nor Beamer have ever lived in a place like Anacostia, DC... but I don't bother challenging him about this because he'll just make shit up, as usual) and moralize about the rural U.S. It's a little like being lectured on morality by Hollywood and all it's sexual predators. Physician, heal thyself...

I lived in Newark, NJ. Nice try. Now tell me who "left being ideagogues" have killed.

I believe Trump is a result of the PC left pushing too hard, too fast and the country saying "no more". But this is just my opinion.

What is funny on this forum, is that the seemingly liberal posters will always be the first to drop to personal attacks. Way to keep it classy.

In 1970, the US population was 90% white. Today is is approaching 50% and falling. The election of Trump has nothing to do with the "PC left" and everything to do with whites feeling that they're "losing" the country to "the other." It's the last gasps of white privilege and the idea that, to be American one must be white, preferably male. I say that as a white male living in a region that is only 25% white, yet is economically thriving with almost no racial strife. Humans are humans, and the thing that makes a strong economy is education level. When humans have a good education, they become moral, secular, and qempathetic, regardless of race.

I believe this is much of it. Especially in white concentrated areas where it truly is the other. There's a reason big cities care less - we're already surrounded by other, we know them, we see them daily, we eat at with them, etc.

Also, let's not pretend America isn't full of shitholes. I know plenty here have been to coal towns.

There's a difference, no?
Those cities have plenty of thriving businesses. Fewer than they should, but they exist. Even Detroit still has Ford.

What do coal towns have?
What percentage of Detroit is on welfare vs most coal towns?

You claim I have a bias, but Baltimore is objectively less shitty than nearly any coal town. Baltimore is like 90% shitty. Coal towns are nearer to 100%.

In any case, I've spent more time in coal towns than Chicago, Detroit, Philly, and Baltimore. But I have been to all of them, and have spent plenty of time in rural Kentucky.
How many states have you lived in? How many different regions? How many people not white do you have in your daily life?

Also, while I think Reagan is the one who sowed the seeds for our current financial issues, there's this:

"Now, tomorrow is a special day for me. I'm going to receive my gold watch. And since this is the last speech that I will give as President, I think it's fitting to leave one final thought, an observation about a country which I love. It was stated best in a letter I received not long ago. A man wrote me and said: "You can go to live in France, but you cannot become a Frenchman. You can go to live in Germany or Turkey or Japan, but you cannot become a German, a Turk, or a Japanese. But anyone, from any corner of the Earth, can come to live in America and become an American."
Yes, the torch of Lady Liberty symbolizes our freedom and represents our heritage, the compact with our parents, our grandparents, and our ancestors. It is that lady who gives us our great and special place in the world. For it's the great life force of each generation of new Americans that guarantees that America's triumph shall continue unsurpassed into the next century and beyond. Other countries may seek to compete with us; but in one vital area, as a beacon of freedom and opportunity that draws the people of the world, no country on Earth comes close.
This, I believe, is one of the most important sources of America's greatness. We lead the world because, unique among nations, we draw our people—our strength-from every country and every corner of the world. And by doing so we continuously renew and enrich our nation. While other countries cling to the stale past, here in America we breathe life into dreams. We create the future, and the world follows us into tomorrow. Thanks to each wave of new arrivals to this land of opportunity, we're a nation forever young, forever bursting with energy and new ideas, and always on the cutting edge, always leading the world to the next frontier. This quality is vital to our future as a nation. If we ever closed the door to new Americans, our leadership in the world would soon be lost."
Ronald Reagan

These are wild tangents.
No one said that Haiti is a fantastically governed country. But this is the President. The leader of the free world. He needs to have tact. Some of his own citizens are from these countries, and he's sending what message to them?

You're also ignoring a very clear pattern of saying such things about non-white countries from our President.

And lastly, with Timmeh, I was taking offense to him saying that you can be what you want in America based on drive and tenacity. If this is true, does Timmeh lack the drive to be successful, or the tenacity?
Or is it all far, far more complicated than people like him try to make it out to be?

Just for context, Rolling Stone published the words of several of our potty mouthed Presidents:

Abraham Lincoln: "There is nothing to make an Englishman shit quicker than the sight of General George Washington."
Barack Obama: “Obama really drew the ire of the pious, calling opponent Mitt Romney a ‘bullshitter.’ Sometimes the dirty word is the most precise.”

Joe Biden: "This is a big f**king deal."
Dick Cheney: “Cheney reportedly told Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy to ‘go f**k [himself]’”
George W. Bush: “Commented on the presence of New York Times reporter Adam Clymer. Believing he had an audience of one, Bush called Clymer a ‘major-league asshole.’”
Barack Obama: "I don't think I should take any sh*t from anybody on that, do you?"
Richard Nixon: “The Watergate tapes put the phrase ‘expletive deleted’ on the map.”
Lyndon Johnson: "I do know the difference between chicken sh*t and chicken salad,"
John F. Kennedy: "This is obviously a f**k-up."
Harry Truman: “In Truman's eyes, General Douglas MacArthur was a "dumb son of a bitch," and Nixon was ‘a shifty-eyed goddamned liar.’”

Yes, and which of those are insulting to our people and our fellow nations?
