Today : "Steam sales suck! Horrible discounts on everything. No good selection! I wish it were the good old days of yesteryear!"
Yesteryear : "Steam sales suck! Horrible discounts on everything. They make flash sales so that you can't catch them! Wish we had some consumer protections in the form of refunds!"
People will ***** me out for saying this, but this is just poor people being poor and not using common sense.
I blindly followed what the PR depts told me and got burned and now am upset at the PR folks rather then look in the mirror at my own gullibility.

I don't know which is which.... But this kind of whining isn't coming from the myirad of other **established actors** that he's worked with in the past. That said...there are plenty of rumors about his philandering and quite a few nods that at least one of those was underage.....so a saint he ain't.
Speaking of Whedon, man this is a bummer.Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in the film, tweeted that the director’s behavior on set was “gross, abusive, unprofessional, .......
Fisher also voiced his support for Whedon’s ex-wife Kai Cole, who previously accused the director of toxic behavior. Cole’s 2017 article for The Wrap detailed Whedon’s cruel tactics and constant infidelity during their eleven-year marriage.

This is the basis of the safe harbor protections internet websites enjoy. By not publishing, endorsing, or restricting speech beyond what is illegal in their jurisdiction, they are granted immunity for what others post on their platforms. Once they start to decide what speech is allowable, they have become publishers, by choosing which ideas they publish. It's not hard.

You mean like how your whining right now?
Dev wrote on Nov 25, 2020, 18:32:They are some jacked up weapons that were in game only during the early phase that have some bugs that can be exploited for obscene damage. Like....putting down the Scorchbeast Queen (first raid boss) in seconds. And since you have to do 1k+ damage to her to get on the loot table....that means most normal players don't have time to do enough damage to get the loot. Even worse, sometimes the guy that set off the nuke to summon her doesn't have time to even get to the event before it's largely over.
Which ones are those?
Osc8r wrote on Nov 25, 2020, 16:09:Definitely a long way to go. They need to fix magic weapons and tune them into a reasonable damage level.....hell, I think its reasonable to just delete them all from the game outright. They've been abused for far too long and ruined the game for normal players.
So it's a good first step but they still have a long way to go. Wayyyyyy too much downtime, and the below average combat mechanics and repetitive MMO style missions don't even begin to offset this.
Don’t Just Survive, Thrive!: We’ve removed all negative effects from Hunger and Thirst. Instead, you’ll receive buffs that increase based on how well fed and hydrated you are.Mixed feelings.....but this is overall probably a good thing. It could be challenging at lower levels to handle food without perks or when you had some kind of disease.

If the GM has an Ultimate license, all players can connect with the free license client. The rulesets and scripting in FG is pretty amazing once you figure out how things work....I haven't seen anything comparable.
If tools like Fantasy Grounds did this it would be much more worth the buy in cost.

Someone else mentioned discord support. And someone else replied 'less information the better'. Along those lines, there are actually discord bots you can add that auto-mute everyone until meetings are called.
