2023.04.01 15:55 Windgesang_ The rise and fall of Thorns

Laneholding in AK has taken quite the journey. Thorns in particular has a really nice popularity regarding being able to just let you chill and win the game. He’s a tool that newbie and veteran players alike enjoy because of how convenient he is. But at some point HG decided that they have gone too far with the brainless AFK strat that they actively tone it down using a myriad of event mechanics. Did they succeed? …Yes.

Year 1

For the first year, laneholders (known as cornerstones on CN) as a concept doesn’t exist yet. The best and closest match that we have at the time is not Savage, is not Specter, is Estelle! (Okay maybe Specter counts too but nobody thoughts about S1 much and S2 transcend her role into something else). You might notice something very Centurion-y about the listed operators.

6 months in, we have Blaze – another Centurion. Except, unfortunately, her birth does not mark the birth of laneholders. The best we have is some vague concept of “leave her there and she’ll manage herself.”

Year 2

Year 2 started with what started this all: Standard Pool 27 with Skadi, Ceobe, Lappland,… wait this is the EN schedule. Year 2 started with W and Weedy, but 3 months after we got what started it all: Unbound Reflux banner – featuring Thorns.

Thorns

Thorns is amazing as a laneholder. In fact, he is the one that truly defined Cornerstones. It took until Thorns that the CN playerbase start to think back to Blaze and go “yeah true Blaze is a whole different category than the rest of the operator.” There was one guy on CN who insisted on Blaze as a good operator a long while before Thorns, and the terms “cornerstone” actually came from him. Cornerstone was first used as a mocking term because of him and what people thought of as a rambling of a mad man.
But Thorns flipped the term around entirely.
Thorns has everything he needed for laneholding. Check out this guide I made which is actually part of this yearly series. What yearly series? Well look at the post date
When Thorns was released, all the hype was very apparent. Thorns trivialised so many contents at the time and all the way to the next year. Doomposters were all about “hurr durr too broken he solo pretty much 99% of stages”.
But he was only the first. (okay technically Blaze was the first but she wasn’t strong enough to spearhead a new perspective)

2 weeks later, the second best thing in the game happened (the second best because it’s not permanent like its successor). Thorns was an absolute beast in this mode. Get the instant E2 Vanguard/Guard squad, start with Thorns, and you’re cruisin’ til the end. Great carry for new people just learning the mode, still great afterward.
Thorns’ popularity skyrocketed with this game mode. He’s convenient and versatile. With him, you're safe from pretty much all content forward.

2 months after, Surtr came out. She’s not a cornerstone by any traditional sense. But she is here to setup for the fall later. She’s the most broken unit in the game and by a wide margin too. (at this point in the timeline I mean)
I guess technically if you have a couple medics she can be a “cornerstone” as well with 4 targets, big pp arts damage, RES ignore, and infinite duration.

1 month after, Mudrock was released. Her S2 is the next step of cornerstoning. She has big bulk and shield with strong self-healing to handle even elite enemies in melee range where Thorns just hope that he can kill them from range or shortly after blocking (which he usually can) in exchange for a less-consistent true surrounding AoE big instant nuke instead of infinite consistent damage.
It was a big thing at the time, so big that they ignore the massive potential that her S3 has (which is definitely more common knowledge these days). There was this 1 guy who posted on the sub asking if Mudrock S3 was broken with all these invincibility and shields and all he got were angry responses saying but muh afk skill.
Regardless, Mudrock is the next addition to the cornerstone family, with block 3, huge bulk, constant shield that gives HP when breaks, and high peak damage.
Sounds amazing right?
But wait, there’s more!

2 months after Mudrock. HG released yet another big cornerstone.
Mountain is a ““Fighter”” in name. In reality he became the best Fighter by giving himself more block and attack enemies equal to block count. There’s something suspiciously centurion-y about that. But that’s not all. He also has HP regen equal to a personal medic with each attacks has a chance to reduces enemies’ ATK by 15%. All ready just after being deployed for 5 seconds.
If you think using Thorns is brain-rotting, you haven’t seen this furry boi. Yeah sure his range reduction makes him solely limited to a lane or a chokepoint, but that chokepoint is essentially blocked.

At this point there is a debate on if Blaze is still considered a cornerstone, as she does not have self-healing like the other three. This debate started when we have more of units that are essentially pseudo-cornerstone. Those that can hold a lane but usually lack something that makes them not as great as the big three, or even four. For example, Weedy S2, Bibeak S1, Pallas S1, Blemi S1, Kal’tsit S2, Nearl2 S1,...
Yet with all 4 cornerstones and mini-cornerstones available, Thorns remains the most widely used. That huge range combine with fast ASPD and relatively high damage makes it far too convenience for usage, even if it does require a long ramp-up (the longest of all 4 even).
For the rest of year 2, Thorns trivialised any form of content available the only exception beings Originium Dust, including CC as people only do Risk 18 as much as any tryhard scrubs want to say otherwise. At the same time, any boss or big chonk elite enemies that Thorns can’t handle, Surtr can with ease.
When HG saw just how much Thorns and Surtr has been making people ignored the mechanics of events, they don’t like it. Obviously they put heart and soul into designing these events of course they’d want people to enjoy it… right?
So they switched their design direction.

Year 3

Year 3 started with Under Tides, the first of many attempts at culling Thorns, Surtr, and the rest of the big boi that trivialised contents: Elemental Damage.

All operators now have 1000 Elemental HP unchangeable (even as of this writing date). If the EHP is down to 0, the specific Elemental effect is taken. As of this writing date, those are Nervous Impairment – 1000 true damage and a 10 seconds stun on proc; Corrosion – 800 physical damage proc and -100 flat DEF permanently (debuff applied first); Burn – 1200 arts damage proc and -20 flat RES for 10 seconds (debuff applied first); and Necrosis – cannot use skill, disable SP gain, -1 SP per second, 100 arts damage per second, for 15 seconds.
UT was extra rough as the event was first launched and designed without Wandering Medic (medics that can heal EHP). So you have to carefully play against the enemies here along with the map device lest you lose an operator because stunned operator can’t block nor attack. This mechanic targets Surtr more than Thorns specifically but Surtr is a big girl. To kill a big girl we need a big nuke. And using big nuke means collateral damage.

3 months later, we got DH. We started with basic mobs that has 40% chance to dodge physical attacks unless blocked. Not too big of an issue for Thorns as he can just block them, but it effectively delayed his self-healing talent to be later than before.
But the big killer is the main mechanic of the event: high tide. Operators can’t be deployed on flooded tile unless you have a specific sticker for a specific class. Operators that are already on flooded tile will have massive -ASPD and constantly take Corrosion damage, which removes 100 DEF permanently until the next deployment, and deals 800 physical damage on proc.
You can counter this by using the stickers and/or devices in the game that would counteract the Corrosion. But it doesn’t prevent the enemies from dealing the elemental damage like the mages. (wait no they are the only enemy that deal Corrosion in this event)
DH also marks the birth of Chen H2O. Another busted unit on the tier of Surtr, or higher.

Just a month after, we have Stormwatch. Now the primary mechanic is mostly anti-Surtr: Refraction (+70 RES). There’s also an enemy that just start flying after dying the first time. But as said, attempting to shaft Surtr often time leads to collateral damages. And this mechanic means Thorns’ talent 1 Arts Damage-over-Time (DoT) is less effective and that hurts his DPS… Wait actually let me check my notes again. Oh that talent barely does shit. Thorns is still pretty good against most of the enemies in chapter 9… all enemies but one: the Phalanx. These guys gain 200 DEF for every other Phalanx in their vicinity. And of course the guy design these maps never spawn just 1 or 2 of these guys, they’d go like 4 or 5. Thorns is almost unable to clear these guys out fast, and honestly, not even the rest of the cornerstone can, at least not without helps… which defeats one of the unofficial requirements of being a solo boi.

Actually even less effective than Ep9 but still worth the mention. The vision mechanic doesn’t cover as much area as Thorns’ own range. Yeah that’s about it.

But 2022 started with the most amazing things has ever happened.
Thorns should have been great in this mode, as he was in IS#1. And he is for Normal Mode. Too bad he’s not as great in Hard Mode.
The extra ATK, HP, and DEF stats are just a small part in this. The enemies being tankier means Thorns take longer to kill. Taking longer to kill means the enemies are more likely to be able to attack Thorns. Thorns loses more HP because of the extra ATK, but he also recover less HP in-between fights because there is less time on account of Thorns taking longer to kill. This is the first time where we can finally feel the drawback of Thorns’ self-heal. And spoiler alert: this is going to be a recurring issue for him in the future.
But it’s not there yet. As IS#2 has relics that boosts operators up counteracting this again. And anyone who’s actually normal will play this mode with relics rather than without. Or people who played for so long that even Hard Mode with relics feels easy so they have to go for no relics. I’m definitely not the latter so don’t even ask.
There are 2 enemies that can be trouble with Thorns: Singers and Big Sad Lock (BSL). Both of them has a mechanic that does thing automatically after they receive a number of hits. Not attacks, hits. Meaning DoT effects such as Thorns’ first talent can proc it. The effects can be horrible if it proc’d at the wrong time, and for someone like Thorns, it’s also going to be proccing fast as well with his per second damage as well as fast innate ASPD from him.
Phantom and Mouthpiece are also an issue for him but like, he struggles against most bosses already.

Less than a month later though, this event happened. Remember when Originium Dust was awful for Thorns because the primary mechanic of more enemies on death is bad for his Single-Target-ness?
There are 2 types of enemies in this mode though: one that spawns 1 big fragment that requires multiple hits, and one that spawns a lot of fragments that requires just a few hits. And yes, it’s hits and not attacks, meaning Thorns’ first talent is now a positive.
Except that’s only for the enemy that spawn big thing. Against enemies that spawns a bunch of small things, his talent doesn’t work because of Thorns’ innate ASPD with S3. He attacks faster than the first tick of his DoT. Meaning for the fragments that requires 2 hits to kill, he still takes 2 attacks because the DoT didn’t kick in before his second attack anyway. This happen for every fragments, and the enemies usually spawns 2 to 3 of these. There’s also 1 enemy that spawns 30 of these fragments when dead so that’s extra bad. There are fragments that takes 3 hits so I guess there’s that.
And here come the final stretch that lead to Thorns’, and the cornerstone concept as a whole, doom.

Last month of Year 3 provides us with the most successful Thorns killer yet. With three whole mechanics that just does not sit well with Thorns: Elemental damage Necrosis, [Reborn Creation] enemies, and Londinium Secondary Defense Artillery.
I said this back in the UT section, but for recap, Necrosis damage prevent any sort of SP gain and also -1 SP per seconds for 15 seconds. Thorns relies on getting them SP up enough to actually start his S3 engine. On stage where they put early Necrosis enemies, Thorns will need a Wandering Medic or he’ll never get his second S3 (or way later than usual). This mechanic aims at killing Thorns before he can start his engine.
But the pain is enhanced is the next two mechanics. [Reborn Creation] enemies innately have 90% Physical and Arts damage reduction. This isn’t like defense or RES, it’s straight reduction. Thorns will struggle hard with just 1 of these enemies but the primary design of these enemies is that they also gives +1 block count (max +6) to the operators they are blocking. Meaning they are more likely to swarm rather than going solo, making use of the last mechanic of the chapter: Londinium Secondary Defense Artillery, or cannon for short.
The cannon deals 3000 True damage to all allies and enemies in the vicinity. If you think “wait how would we kill the Reborn Creation without bork 6* or true damage?”, this is how. This cannon targets the ally with the highest block count that is last deployed or with higher taunt level. Like I said, Thorns is not going to kill these Creation in time so eventually they will just pile up on him. And Thorns does not have the HP to survive the cannon.
None of the other 3 cornerstones actually struggles against [Reborn Creation] because they all have AoE of some sort. Blaze is a block-3 Centurion (attacking multiple enemies equal to block count), Mountain is a block-2 Centurion, Mudrock has true AoE every 4 Defensive Recovery SP (or S3 which is another block-3 Centurion). Though only Mudrock has the HP to survive the cannon.

Year 4

A flood of 80% unblockable Dodge enemies

A month later, LE was released, and along with it, a new permanent game mode called SSS. The big gimmick of this gamemode is that the enemies’ stats scaled up over time. And that means Thorns can’t kill enemies fast enough, and he takes more damage per attack, and then he starts dying to attrition.
Another thing of this gamemode is that they like to flood enemies. It’s why AoE or Multi-target operators are favored. Thorns is a single-target unit. The mechanic of stacking buffs doesn’t quite help him here as much because of this ST-ness.

3 months later, we have this event which was quite controversial to this sub. The basic mobs have 100% physical dodge for the first 20 seconds of their life. Another basic mobs have 100% physical dodge for 10 seconds after losing 50% HP. And since they are basic mobs they are going to rush your ass from the beginning of the run, and Thorns’s Arts DoT is not going to handle them.
In fact, this event and SN is a solid reminder to all the copers that go “but broken 6* don’t affect content design and they are all clearable with 4* and below reeeee”. Well, good luck dealing with dodge with your low rarity team whenever they are tired of broken 6* rolling over content again! (which then translates to Lappland enjoyer winning again… shit). And if it’s not Evasion, it’s going to be Damage Reduction, as seen in Ep9’s boss, Ep10’s Reborn, this event’s surfboi, DV’s balls,…
Aside from mechanics that forced you to play around it, and this isn’t about IC specifically, the general baseline stats of the enemies have also gone up. This further crippled Thorns because again, enemies hit harder and Thorns takes longer to kill, and eventually died to attrition without helps.
This event also marks the birth of Gavial2, a different kind of competition to cornerstones. I’ll go into more details… right now.

Released about a month after IC, this event marks the birth of Młynar, one of the most, if not the most, broken units in the game right now. He and Gavial2 have many similar points.
Młynar has a skill with big pp damage on a semi-short cooldown with a relatively long duration. Gavial2 also has a skill with big pp damage on a semi-short cooldown with a relatively long duration. Both are really tanky for a Guard. Both has quite a big range for a melee unit.
Combine these two together and people found a new competition to Cornerstones: just alternate large range big burst skills.
Cornerstones have been struggling lately, and often times requires additional helps. With all of the above ideas, instead of cornerstone + helper, they went with Młynar + Gavial2.
This combo cleaned 95% of content at this time.
Anyway, back to this Thorns bad post.
.
Also from now on it's CN SPOILERS
.
Within the same month as AW, we have IS#3. If you think Thorns was great in IS#2, and hope to ride the “Thorns start” strategy to IS#3. Think again... kinda.
While he had issues in IS#2, they are nothing that a couple maneuvers can’t avoid. And he’s still great in Normal Mode which is easy mode what most people would play in.
In IS#3, hey reworked the four instant E2 squad so you can’t start with E2 Thorns without some massive luck. It requires getting the automatic promotion and to have it landed on Thorns.
The big issue is the mode itself though.
The enemies here deal Corrosion damage (some few deals Nervous Impairment).
There’s also the difficulty scaling of the mode. Like IS#2 Hard mode, the difficulty level increases the enemies stats by a lot, thus cause the attrition issue yet again. There’s a medal at difficulty level 7, but Thorns already struggling hard by 6 or 5. So if you want the medal, don’t do Thorns.
I didn’t actually check IS#3 much cuz spoiler, but apparently the maps are also very unkind to Thorns and the rest of the cornerstones. Just at floor 1 and we already have a replacement of Beast Taming that destroyed him. And I heard some faint talk about 2 Pompeii map and Berserkers flood map.

Ep11 continues Ep10 and keeps the Necrosis damage, but not that much. The main design of Ep11 are big flood of enemies (the infamous 11-6) or a relatively low amount of strong elites. Thorns doesn’t do well against either of those kind of map.
IlS actually marks the birth of another contender to the cornerstone squad: Penance. Despite not doing well for AFK as her AFK skill isn’t that great. Her entire kit combined with S3 is strong enough to be almost considered one. Penance’s weakness is immediately revealed though, and that aside from being a cornerstone, she’s also forced to go solo. She’s great at solo, she just doesn’t have the option to play with a team at all, unlike the other cornerstones.

2 months later we have this event, and with it, Chongyue. My dude has absurd damage and is yet another strong contender to the squad. He only lacks self-healing. He innately has more damage than Thorns until like a high amount of DEF (I forgot the maff). He can't hit air. But Thorns struggles a fair bit against melee enemies lately that he doesn't get a break to hit aerial enemies himself anyway.

The ending

With Młynar and Gavial2 presence, along with stiff competition in his role, along with Thorns absolutely struggles in all permanent game mode, one of which is greatly loved by the community, as well as struggling in most events, he was finally put to rest.
Mountain, Mudrock and Penance are still going strong though (except in IS#3). One has unconditional big regen and attacks equal to block count, but no range. The other two has big bulk, regenerating shield that is essentially HP, S2 true surrounding AoE, or S3 big damage.
So now, when will be Mountain’s turn, HG? This furry is even worse.
Anyway, Thorns bad, 2020-08-11 – 2022-11-01.

2023.04.01 15:40 JoyGamingYT How does a New Player go about playing Apex Legends?

NOTE: My PS4 Bricked almost 2 Years ago and I can't play Apex on my PS4 account.
Realising that Cross-Progression is not coming anytime soon, and a Ton of content being added in Apex since Season 10 such as New Weapons, Legends, Maps, Modes and even just a Revamp of the Character Classes, I decided to install it on my PC from steam.
Then suddenly realising that it will take AGES to unlock the Legends I want to play as well as Play the newer Legends.
Can't Imagine new Players trying to Enter a Game where it takes over a Year worth of Playtime to unlock all the free "Playable Content".
(I am also a Teensy bit upset that I don't have access to some of my Gun Skins like the Season 4 Battlepass R99 or any of the limited time Reward tracker skins).

2023.04.01 15:25 mcskim46 I was bummed about Brunson but never thought it was going to be this HUGE of an impact

Through 77 games the more I look at things the worse it gets. This is purely from a statistical standpoint. So we lose in the Conference Finals.
Luka plays and dominates all Summer in Euro league and looks in mid season form to start the season. We lose Brunson but have Spencer to run second unit and replace him with Wood (which we needed size that can score desperately). Added McGee who was really impressive against us in the playoffs. THJ was coming back. Still had core. I was thinking we were going to be competing for a 2 or 3 seed all season. With 5 games left to play and in the 11th spot, and Brunson dropping 48 last night I wanted to look at some things from just a numbers perspective.
Brunson 2021-2022: GMs: 79 PPG: 16.3 3pt %: 37.3 RPG: 3.9 APG: 4.8
Brunson 2022-2023: GMs: 67 PPG: 24.0 3pt %: 41.7 RPG: 3.6 APG: 6.2
Wood 2022-2023 (To offset loss of Brunson) GMs: 64 PPG: 16.8 3pt %: 36.8 RPG: 7.4 APG: 1.8
Green: doubled his PPG from 4.8 to 9.2
Hardy: 8.8 ppg
Record through 77 games: Dal 2021-2022: 48-29 Dal 2022-2023: 37-40 (-11)
NYK 2021-2022: 34-43 NYK 2022-2023: 45-33 (+11)
That is a 22 game impact. Has there ever been a non Superstar have such an impact on both teams from one season to the next? Brunson is very good but he is not a superstar.
We are in games in the 4th pretty much every game and more often than not have a double digit lead. Closing out games is a HUGE problem and as much as I dislike Kidd (and blame him for a lot) this was also a serious problem under Rick. To me this makes this season even more frustrating than it already is.

2023.04.01 15:00 AutoModerator Bi-Monthly Questions Thread & FAQ

This weekly thread is designed to be a place for all the new members of the subreddit and Vita community to come and say hello as well as where they (or vets) can ask any question they might have (no matter how redundant or simple). So, say "Hi", ask away, and welcome to /Vita!

FAQ

We get these questions a lot, so we're incorporating them into this thread. Have something you feel fits here? Shoot us a modmail!
Is the Vita worth buying in (current year)?
Value is ultimately subjective. If you like the library of games on the Vita and have the money, probably. If you want new, modern games then probably not. If you have specific questions about the Vita's capabilities feel free to ask in this thread, but keep in mind you're asking in a Vita-centric community and will likely get mostly affirmative responses.
Is the PlayStation store shutting down?
No. Sony did announce they were closing the Vita storefront in 2021, but later reversed that decision. It is possible that the store will be shut down at some point in the future, but no specific dates/timeframes are known.
Can I still buy games from the PlayStation store?
Yes. However, you will need to have funds in your wallet for the purchase. You can add funds to your wallet via web, PS4, or PS5. More information is available here.
I'm having trouble signing into my Vita! Help!
As of the 3.74 update in May 2022, you need a device password to sign in to your Vita. You can do that here. Please make sure you are on firmware 3.74 and using a device password before making a thread.
My Vita is in an error loop with the QR code on sign-in. What should I do?
This happens sometimes, and nobody's really sure why. However, community member LoganN64 has been able to provide instructions that consistently work for getting through this:
  1. Log in to the PSN website with a Laptop or Desktop computer.
  2. Click on your avatar in the top right corner and go to SETTINGS.
  3. Scroll down to SECURITY and then scroll down to ACTIVATE/TURN ON 2 FACTOR AUTHENTICATION.
  4. Click on GENERATE NEW DEVICE CODE, write this down exactly as it is case sensitive.
  5. Go to your Vita and bring up the sign in page, enter the email associated with your account then enter the NEW DEVICE CODE as your password. Click on save password to avoid getting a new code each time..
I'm no longer able to transfer files from PS3 to Vita. What's happening?
This feature was disabled in May 2022. You can read PlayStation's update about it here. No workarounds are currently known.
Where can I buy a Vita?
Vita production ceased in 2019 so consoles can be hard to come by, especially new. eBay is the most prominent location, but Facebook marketplace, Kijiji, Craigslist, /GameSale, and equivalent marketplaces are your friend.
How much is (X) worth? Is (X) a good deal?
You can search sold eBay listings here to get a sense of value. VGPC is another source of this kind of information.
Will (Game) ever go on sale?
As of 2020, Sony has disabled developers' ability to put Vita games on sale. So in all likelihood, no.
The workaround and exception for this rule is that cross-buy games can still be put on sale for the PS4, and cross-buy items will still grant the Vita version (where applicable).
Should I buy an OLED ("Phat") or Slim Vita?
Neither are bad options. The Slim has 1GB of on-board memory, a more standard charging port, slightly better battery life, and is lighter. The Phat has a better screen. It's up to you on what you value more.
Where can I buy replacement Vita parts?
AliExpress and eBay are currently the best sources of Vita replacement parts.
Are Vita consoles region-free?
Yes. A Vita can play a physical game from any region. The digital storefront you can access is determined by the region of your PSN account, and not the region of the console. For example, a Vita from Japan will be able to play any physical game, and if you sign in with a US PSN account you'll be able to access the US PSN storefront.
Vita consoles from Asian regions have the X/O button swapped in the OS ("bubbles") screen, but in-game functionality retains X-to-confirm functionality for almost all games.
It has been reported that consoles intended for China have more stringent region-locking, but these are not commonly found and this is unlikely to affect you.
I'd like some game recommendations!
Check out our Wiki page, 2021 subreddit poll, and 2018 subreddit poll. If that isn't cutting it for you, feel free to ask in this thread or create your own thread on the subreddit. Keep in mind that we require 300+ characters for recommendation posts on the subreddit, so be sure to include plenty of detail about what you're looking for, what you've played, and so on.
I have a question about hacks/homebrew
Check out /VitaHacks - that's their specialty and they've got a pinned thread to help you out.
Curious about what else is coming up? Our full auto-post schedule is here.

2023.04.01 14:57 jisoo-n Professor is lazy and impossible to reach

(content warning: mention of McGraw Hill Connect)
TLDR at bottom.
To preface, this is an online Business Communications course, yet this is the absolute worst communication I've ever experienced with a professor.
This professor has only communicated with the class two (2) times, and the semester ends in a month. First, a "welcome" post at the beginning of the semester.
Second, a "I've seen all your emails, sorry for not communicating! I've been busy with (insert thing)."
The second post didn't happen until I rounded up a few classmates through email and phone to help me beg the Prof to please respond, because they hadn't responded to my email in a week and a half.
The email was time-sensitive, by the way. We had assignments and an exam due, but Prof hadn't allowed students to access them.
After we blew up Prof's inbox, the assignments were unlocked and the second post was made. The assignments were past-due by the time Prof responded and subsequently extended the due dates.
Not to mention all of our assignments are McGraw Hill Connect. We've had a total of 2 non-McGraw Hill assignments, both of which are still not graded despite being due two months ago.
Also, the name of our course on McGraw Hill is "copy of (course name) Fall 2022" and all of the due dates were originally set for fall 2022...it's Winter 2023 right now. The Prof didn't even bother to change the name, due dates, or even the year, just copied and pasted the whole course.
Like come on, they must have so much free time when McGraw is grading 99% of assignments for them and they're clearly not busy communicating with students.
Now, I understand an online course is different from in-person. Almost all of my courses have been online. I get how it works, and I get that communication works differently.
But at least it felt like my other profs were actually doing something to be involved in the class. At the very least, making announcements when exams are coming up or responding to emails within less than a week.
It feels like this prof has been on vacation for the whole semester, not even checking their email for over a week is pushing it, in my opinion. At first glance, it'd seem like there was nobody even moderating the class.
The issues above are what immediately came to mind, but there are lots of other problems cropping up with this Prof on a regular basis.
This might be the first time I say something negative in the course questionnaire at the end of the semester.
TLDR: prof seems to actively avoid being involved with the class by every metric imaginable, not doing basic responsibilities and not checking emails for long periods of time. Students suffer

2023.04.01 14:24 rado2600 The next step for Multiversus.

Hello. I am Toe "Knee" Huh from Prayer Würst Gains. With all the feedback we have received from the community and the unexpected release of The Murder of Sonic The Hedgehog, we at Prayer Würst Gains have decided to drastically change the direction of Multiversus going forward. Development on the current version of Multiversus will be halted and the game will be taken down on all platforms, effective immediately.
The next version of the game will be a dating simulator taking advantage of the large cast of Multiversus. The first characters available for the open beta will be Bugs Bunny, Marvin the Martian, Garnet, Black Adam and Reindog. After the open beta closes, we will focus on adding new characters, scenarios and game modes for the full release.
All players' Gleamium will be carried over, and any gold will be exchanged for Gleamium at a 25:1 rate. Gleamium can be used for unlocking new characters to date. Please let me, and everyone else at the Prayer Würst Gains team know what you think of the changes. We wish all our MVPs the best, and hope that you will enjoy the next version of Multiversus, whose open beta will be released today and be made available until June 25th.
-Best regards and most foolish of Aprils, u/rado2600
P.S. The name of the company has always been Prayer Würst Gains. I named it that because I like würst, wish to gain more würst, and am actually reformed orthodox rabbi Bill Clinton.

2023.04.01 14:13 CustomFighter2 Bloons TD 6 - Update Notes! Version 36.0

Bloons TD 6 - Update Notes! Version 36.0

https://preview.redd.it/m07mwwaxk9ra1.png?width=300&format=png&auto=webp&v=enabled&s=944e59e3dbbb7099c6bf50ad324ec87d5eb648e0

Bloons TD 6 v36.0 - Update Notes!

Hello and welcome! We decided to release the balance notes a little ahead of time! Enjoy!
Update video: https://youtu.be/_Nq4f9n2vdU

Key New Features

  • New Tower - Mr Beast Handler
    • chomp, rawr, kakaw!
    • So much to say about this tower, but mainly we so hope you enjoy it!
    • The first never before seen tower to join the BTD universe since the Druid and Alchemist at launch almost 5 years ago.
    • This tower plays and gains power in a completely unique way, and there are intentional tradeoffs along the way - you need to choose the right time to Merge beasts or just like any other tower whether more separate and lower-power beasts are situationally better.
    • This is a Support class tower, so seeing how it works with your favorite builds is part of the fun.
    • BTW making cool-looking giant beasts pop Bloons has been pretty awesome, even though it took us twice as long as expected. Thanks for your patience!!!
  • Quests! Quests are self-contained challenges with their own special rules, difficulty, and unlock requirements. Patch joins the main menu and acts as the entry point for the Quest system. The intent along with fun gameplay is to sprinkle more story into the game, teaching certain strategies, introducing game modes, trying out items before unlocking them, as well as being a place for us to experiment with new mechanics. Did someone say special missions? No we didn’t say that for 36, but definitely downstream.
  • With the launch of the Quests system we have 3 beginner Quests aimed towards newer players. In future updates we will expand this with mid-rank, high rank, and expert level Quests that will introduce higher level ideas and challenges.
    • Beast Handler Quest - The Dartling Gunner unlocks via a basic pop target objective, but this was a simple system and had nothing to do with the tower itself. To unlock the Beast Handler with this update, rank 40+ players will take on a short adventure using the lower tiers of this tower.
    • Race Introduction - When Races unlock at rank 20, they can be quite an intimidating system to start learning. Now rank 20+ players will be able to access their first persistent race, available from the Quest menu. This is a short introduction aimed at new players, or players new to Races. More challenging Race Quests will be added in the future.
    • Quincy’s Trial - All players start the game with Quincy available, and now from the Quest menu or from Quincy's profile on the Hero menu players will be able to engage in a short mission showcasing his strengths, like missing pink bloons

New Awesome

  • New Map - Polyphemus
    • No, Lotus Island was never going to be the only stop on that epic journey
    • Your next adventure is Polyphemus, whose one great eye closes over any towers in its site. Never fear, unlike Monkdyseus, your crew is not dead, just out of play until you can open the eye again.
    • Another one made with challenges in mind, and yes, we’ll look for other uses for this mechanic in the future.
  • New Achievements - a simple intro to quests with: Side Quest, World League Training

Game Changes / Additions

  • Reworked towers with secondary attack target options to use a smaller icon for this target that is no longer linked to the target priority display. We apologize to the players who were comfortable with the “buttonized” target priorities, but many players were confused by that implementation, so we’re hoping this is a better, clearer UI for all.
  • Added option to enter Races with Monkey Money even if Race Passes are owned

Bug Fixes & General Changes

Boomerang Monkey
  • 5xx Glaive Lord and Glaive Dominus Rotating Glaives now visually change direction with the change hand targeting
Banana Farm
  • can now be purchased in Deflation and CHIMPS (they still will not make money)
  • gains a pop count display and pop count now properly appears on Named Monkey records
  • 420, 520, 024, and 025 Farm; fixed bug where the More Valuable Bananas MK was not being used when buffed by a xx4 Village
  • x3x Monkey Bank and above can withdraw using the 'Change Targeting' hotkey and withdraw all using the 'Reverse Change Targeting' hotkey
  • x4x IMF Loan and above can deposit using the 'Monkey Special' hotkey
Obyn
  • fixed bug where blown back bloons were not filling up Wall of Trees
Benjamin
  • pop count now properly appears on Named Monkey records

Balance Changes

Boomerang Monkey
Even with the previous buffs, MOAR Glaives performs poorly in comparison to other cleanup towers and Glaive Lord still struggles against fortified ceramics in the late game.
  • 4xx MOAR Glaives applies a weaker shred status to the first target hit that deals 3 moab damage every 1s for 15s
  • 402 MOAR Glaives gains bonus damage to MOABs +1
  • 5xx Glaive Lord main attack gains bonus to fortified +2
  • 5xx Glaive Lord Rotating Glaives bonus to fortified increased 2 > 4
  • 5xx Glaive Lord Rotating Glaives pierce increased 80 > 160
Ice Monkey
What was once a bug is back as a feature to help its reliability as a decamo option.
  • 4xx Embrittlement gains a separate larger decamo radius (similar to Signal Flare) and can decamo whites and zebras
Glue Gunner
Despite being purported as a ceramic counter, Bloon Liquefier is terrible at dealing with large groups even with the middle crosspath and as such makes for a poor saveup to The Bloon Solver. Continuing from the changes from last update, we are giving it Relentless Glue's old behavior to help it better deal with crowds, and providing more crosspath interactions for the blobs as promised. Glue Strike and Storm are also getting some reworks to make bottom crosspath more usable.
  • 4xx Bloon Liquefier upon destroying a Bloon now drops blobs of glue on the track that deal 1 pierce of 0 damage and applies the glue status to whatever hits it
  • 5xx The Bloon Solver glue blobs damage 20 > 15
  • 5xx The Bloon Solver glue blobs lifetime 5s > 7.5s
  • 510 The Bloon Solver glue blobs pierce 1 > 2
  • 520 The Bloon Solver glue blobs pierce 1 > 5
  • 501 The Bloon Solver glue blobs lifetime 5s > 10s
  • x4x Glue Strike ability can now hit MOAB-class bloons without Corrosive Glue
  • x4x Glue Strike ability no longer weakens lead bloons
  • x4x Glue Strike ability bonus damage taken while glued reduced 2 > 1
  • 240 Glue Strike ability remains able to weaken lead bloons
  • 240 Glue Strike ability bonus damage taken while glued remains at 2
Monkey Buccaneer
Giving more utility to the underutilized crosspaths.
  • 402 Aircraft Carrier aircraft missiles damage type Explosive > Normal
  • 502 Carrier Flagship buff grants camo detection and applies to towers placed on its decks
  • 203 Merchantman end of round income 200 > 240
  • 204 Favored Trades sellback buff +10% -> +12%
  • 204 Favored Trades end of round income 500 > 600
  • 205 Trade Empire buff to xx3 limit increased 20 > 24
  • 205 Trade Empire end of round income 800 > 960
Monkey Ace
Toning back our last change to Neva-Miss, because it seems to have fallen off too much.
  • xx3 Neva-Miss Targeting price reduced from $2800 > $2400
Heli Pilot
Heli's MOAB Shove doesn't scale with higher tiers so additions have been made to the mini Comanches.
  • xx4 Comanche Defense minis gain a weaker MOAB Shove effect (50% compared to main heli)
  • xx5 Comanche Defense minis gain the full MOAB Shove effect
Mortar Monkey
Adapted from a change in Battles 2. We'll see how well it works locked to a upgrade instead of being a base tower feature. Plus giving Burny Stuff more love to make a more competitive crosspath choice for middle path.
  • xx1 Increased Accuracy adds 'Follow Touch' targeting option (hotkey: Shift + Tab)
  • 032 Heavy Shells allows burn from this tower to tic three times as fast (also expires three times as fast) and the burn inherits the bonus damages of the main attack
Wizard Monkey
Currently you need to give and remove an external range buff to reset zombie targeting. Automatic targeting for Wall of Fire refers to its old behavior prior to v33.0, where it would follow the tower's targeting priority if bloons were in range. We are also giving Arcane Blast more crosspath interactions and fixing Archmage's Dragon's Breath's range.
  • 5xx Archmage Dragon's Breath attack now matches tower's range
  • 120 Wall of Fire can target the outside of the tower's range to revert targeting back to automatic
  • x3x Dragon's Breath price increased $3000 > $3300
  • 230 Dragon's Breath flame attack ceram bonus increased 1 > 2
  • 104 Necromancer can target the zombie spawn point outside of the tower's range to revert targeting back to automatic
  • 204 Necromancer zombie gains bonus to ceramic +1
Alchemist
Acid Pools have long been unchanged and underpowered, so these changes should give it some utility while not being a Caltrops clone. AMD currently has negative synergy with Lead to Gold's primary function, so this should solve that. The BMA change is to offset some of the money lost from the shrink attack.
  • xx2 Acid Pools last +1 round, main potion attack drops Acid Pools on impact unless pierce-capped
  • xx3 Lead to Gold Acid Pools can hit camo
  • 203 Lead to Gold AMD-buffed towers also grant the $50 cash bonus when popping leads
  • 023 Lead to Gold attacking DDTs weakens them (like Glue Strike ability) and generates the $50 cash bonus
  • 204 Rubber to Gold AMD-buffed towers get the income bonus when attacking
  • 024 Rubber to Gold gains +100% income bonus on fortified MOABs
  • xx5 BMA shrink potions transforms targets into leads
Druid
Heart of Thunder was previously buffed to scale better with higher tiers, but middle path was overlooked back then.
  • 240 Jungle's Bounty (HoT) bonus damage to MOABs +2
  • 250 Spirit of the Forest (HoT) damage increased 2 > 10
  • 250 Spirit of the Forest (HoT) bonus damage to MOABs +4
Banana Farm
Giving top path reasons to go for bottom crosspath, more consistency with the middle path, and a quality of life change that lazy farmers everywhere will enjoy.
  • x4x IMF Loan and x5x Monkey-nomics ability income will now increase with external buffs
  • xx1 EZ Collect bananas can be autocollected by 041 Druids
  • xx2 Banana Salvage uncollected bananas now explode and leave banana peels that blow back bloons upon expiry. Explosions deal damage equal to their monetary value and have 20 pierce. Banana peels have pierce equal to their monetary value and lifetime equal to that of the generated bananas (money is still collected like before). If autocollected by 042 Druids, the bananas can be harvested for their full monetary value and still explode and leave peels. It also becomes able to take Alchemist buffs.
  • xx5 Monkey Wall Street autocollect range now matches the tower range and can be affected by external range buffs (including Alchemist)
Spike Factory
While Perma-Spike is already a popular and strong option, we felt this change will be a much-appreciated quality of life improvement. To offset this, we are also increasing the prices.
  • xx2 Smart Spikes gains a target selection point which can override the regular targeting options using the 'Monkey Special' hotkey
  • xx5 Perma-Spike price increased $30000 > $33000
Monkey Village
Ever since Monkeyopolis's nerf put it out of the farming meta, there remains little point in making one. This rework should make it more valuable to use again.
  • xx5 Monkeyopolis income generated exactly matches the sacrificed farms and income collection method is based on most invested farm type:
    • top path & base farms: generates crates (current behavior)
    • middle path farms: generates income and interest in a bank balance equal to sacrificed banks' capacities
    • bottom path farms: autocollects income
T4 Farm effects like the Banana Central BRF buff, bank deposits and IMF Loan abilities, and Merchantman buffs do not transfer.
Engineer Monkey
The Pin effect is currently underpowered on Sentry Champion, so these changes should help its case without being overpowering. Cleansing Foam's Sentries can currently decamo, though it is rarely useful because they need external support to even see them in the first place.
  • 502 Sentry Champion sentries can pin ceramics
  • 502 Sentry Champion sentries can pin MOAB-class bloons when exploding
  • 130 Cleansing Foam sentries can see camo
  • Master Builder's Green Sentry Paragon can now be locked
Obyn
With the rework to secondary attack target options, we can now give Obyn the ability to target all of his items individually. No idea how to meaningfully buff him though.
  • Lv3 Brambles gains a target selection point
  • Lv4 Nature's Ward Totem gains a target selection point
Benjamin
How is this not a thing yet?
  • Lv7 Bloon Trojan now follows Target Priority
Geraldo
I just think it would be neat. I have no idea what the ramifications this would have on the game balance.
  • items unlocked between Lv1 and Lv15 can now receive discounts from xx1 and xx2 Villages
  • all items can now receive discounts from Sun Temples and True Sun Gods.
If you made it all the way to end, thanks for reading! I am not affiliated with NK; this is simply a collection of my ideas for balance changes with a little April Fool's flair. It was also interesting looking back at previous path notes and trying to replicate NK's writing styles.

2023.04.01 14:05 w41g87 [Serious] An Open Letter to the NCD Community

[Serious] An Open Letter to the NCD Community
Greetings,
My name is Aljhett Abhad. I am the Community Outreach Manager of No Fighter Jets, a social-conscious campaign aiming to stop the Canadian government from funding the development and purchasing of fighter jets, which are designed solely to bomb and kill people. I stumbled upon this community just a few days ago, and was quickly overwhelmed by its inhumane and savage nature. I am aghast that there is such a big fanatical community that has such little regard for human life and is advocating for violence and destruction. Nevertheless, with evidence and understanding, I believe this community too can see the truth about fighter jets, and join our cause to prevent the bloodthirsty military-industrial complex from creating further tragedies in the world. I am writing this open letter in the hope to bring reason and peace to this community. In the following paragraphs, I will detail why fighter jets are one of the greatest evils our government budget funds and what we could do to change it.

Our Revised Ad Exposing the Truth of F-35

Fighter Jets Kill People

The purpose of these jets is to drop bombs and kill people1. Canada's current stock of fighter jets has spent the last few decades bombing Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, Serbia, and Syria, prolonging the violent conflict and contributing to massive humanitarian and refugee crises2. These operations had an immediate deadly toll on human life (disproportionally children), and killed many more by destroying vital civilian infrastructure. This practice is nothing short of barbaric and goes against the very essence of humanity.

Fighter Jets are Expensive

With an upfront cost of $19 billion and at least $77 billion over the lifespan of the jets3, the current F-35 deal is the second most expensive procurement in Canadian history. This is an obscene amount of money and should be canceled in favor of social projects that are truly needed. That's money we need for healthcare, education, housing, clean water, and to address the true global threats we face, none of which can be bombed. As the renowned writer George Monbiot put it: "If ever there were a time to reassess the genuine threats to our security and separate them from the self-interested aims of the weapons industry, this is it."1

Fighter Jets will Accelerate Global Warming

Jet fuel emissions are already enormous and accelerating the climate crisis2. These new jets will lock us into massive, deadly carbon emissions for the next 30 years, making any of Canada's climate targets impossible to achieve4. This is a crucial issue that we cannot afford to ignore, and the consequences of our inaction will be catastrophic.

Obsession with Fighter Jets is Ruining Our Generation

During my time on this forum, there have been numerous occasions where military aircraft of various sorts were sexualized or personified8. It is disheartening to witness the members of this community repeatedly expressing their disturbing fetishization of fighter jets. The objectification of inanimate objects is an unhealthy and perverted practice that only serves to demonstrate how this community's influence has negatively impacted the mental development of individuals. The frequent and senseless chants of "Vark Vark Vark Vark Vark" further exemplify the irrational and depraved nature of this community.


Now that you have been convinced to join our cause to defund fighter jets and abolish wars, you might ask: "What should I do next?" Below is a brief introduction to our campaign and how you could help!

Our Mission

As a social-conscious campaign, our aim is to halt the funding and procurement of fighter jets as the stepping stone to further social welfare, curb climate change, and finally, abolish war and bring peace. We believe if people around the world come together, we could eliminate war once and for all. Stopping further procurement of fighter jets is a small but crucial step to achieving eternal peace. If you would like to know more about us, simply visit us at https://nofighterjets.ca/.

What's the Issue?

On January 9th, 2023, Canadian Defense Minister Anita Anand announced that Canada is officially buying 88 F-35 fighter jets from American weapons giant Lockheed Martin5 in a phased approach despite widespread opposition and controversy. Despite our disappointment in this development, the #NoFighterJets movement isn’t going anywhere. Rather, we will continue to mobilize against Canada’s procurement of F-35 warplanes designed to destroy people, ecosystems, and infrastructure at home and abroad.

How Can You Help?

We urge you to spread awareness on social media by using the hashtags #NoFighterJets and #DropTheF35Deal. Additionally, we recommend writing a letter6 to the Canadian federal government opposing the procurement of 88 F-35 fighter jets and demanding investment in a just recovery and Green New Deal. You could either handwrite or visit here where our team can send the letter on your behalf. And again, thank you for your support toward a greener and more peaceful Earth!


The Military Industrial Complex and its lobbyists will continue to try and justify the acquisition of fighter jets, but we must not be fooled. The true purpose of these machines is not defense, but rather offense and violence against people, communities, and the environment. We must not allow our government to fund these atrocities any longer.
In conclusion, I urge this community to reflect on the true nature of fighter jets and their role in perpetuating violence and destruction. We must choose reason and peace over violence and war. Join us in our mission to stop the funding and acquisition of fighter jets, and let us work together toward a more just, equitable, and peaceful world.


Sincerely,

Aljhett Abhad
Community Outreach Manager, No Fighter Jets

MARCH 31, 2023 Treasury Releases Guidance to Drive Investment in Critical Minerals & Battery Supply Chains in America

Treasury Releases Guidance to Drive Investment in Critical Minerals & Battery Supply Chains in America Clean Energy The White House
Today, the Department of Treasury (Treasury) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released new guidance to clarify how manufacturers may satisfy the critical mineral and battery component requirements of the clean vehicle tax credit introduced by the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Treasury’s new notice of proposed rulemaking marks a critical step towards building our clean energy future while honoring our “Made in America” commitments.

The Biden-Harris Administration remains focused on investing in America, revitalizing American manufacturing and establishing secure supply chains for critical minerals and battery components here at home. Since the enactment of the Inflation Reduction Act, over $45 billion in battery investments across at least 75 facilities have been announced across all segments of the domestic battery supply chain, ranging from the extraction of critical minerals to the manufacturing of battery packs. Treasury’s new guidance ensures that the tax credits introduced by the Inflation Reduction Act will continue to drive unprecedented investment in American manufacturing and drive the creation of tens of thousands of high-paying, high-quality jobs.

The Biden-Harris Administration also remains committed to building the American economy from the bottom up and the middle out, and the new clean vehicle tax credits have been designed to ensure that clean vehicles are accessible to all Americans and targeted at the middle-class and hardworking families. With today’s new guidance, Treasury and IRS have also released an updated set of FAQS to help taxpayers determine whether they are eligible for up to a $7,500 tax credit towards a new clean vehicle. These FAQs provide consumers with information on eligibility requirements, including household income limitations and vehicle price caps, as well as detailed instructions on determining whether vehicle models are eligible under the updated critical minerals and battery component requirements.
After the release of today’s new guidance, manufacturers will provide Treasury and IRS with an updated list of eligible vehicles by April 18, 2023. On that date, FuelEconomy.gov will contain a list of eligible clean vehicles that manufacturers have indicated to the IRS will meet the requirements to claim the new clean vehicle credit. This list will continue to be updated promptly as manufacturers continue to provide more information on vehicle eligibility.
Today’s announcement ensures that the clean vehicle credit provided by the Inflation Reduction Act will lower costs for consumers, revitalize our industrial base, and spur manufacturing here at home. We encourage you to learn more about all of the ways that the Inflation Reduction Act’s clean energy tax incentives can help to lower your household’s energy and transportation costs in 2023 and beyon

NIOBIUM ~MARCH 29, 2023 ~CBMM bets on batteries for electric vehicles Por Ivo Ribeiro — São Paulo

World’s largest producer of niobium items will increase its budget to R$340m in 2023 from R$260m

Metals, Mineral Resources & Recycling (sojitzamericas.com)
The Brazilian company CBMM, a world leader in the production and supply of niobium products, continues to focus on its plan to diversify the metal’s applications and generate new business. The electric mobility market (vehicles powered by electric batteries) is the big niche at the moment, but there are others such as electronics and nanomaterials — which are more efficient.
Controlled by the Moreira Salles family, one of the shareholders of Itaú Unibanco, the company created in 1955 to explore the vast niobium deposits near the municipality of Araxá, in Minas Gerais, is increasing its spending on research and development.
CBMM will increase its annual budget to R$340 million in 2023 from R$260 million, of which almost R$100 million will be intended for the electric battery program, says Ricardo Lima, CEO since July 1 last year, after four years in charge of technology and new business.
According to Mr. Lima, the company is developing 41 projects focused on batteries for electric vehicles. Two of them are well developed, already in an advanced testing phase — one with Japan’s Toshiba and another with Volkswagen Trucks and Buses to supply niobium material for a generation of electric buses.
In battery production, niobium in the form of oxides is used for both cathode and anode production in some types of batteries whose base element is lithium.
To meet the demand of battery manufacturers, CBMM is building a 3,000-tonne per year niobium oxide plant in Araxá with an investment of $80 million. The current investment program in oxides within the company is estimated at R$1.2 billion.
This reflects the importance of this new business to the company. It is expected to account for 25% of its niobium sales by the end of this decade, equivalent to 35,000 tonnes. Last year, CBMM sold 88,000 tonnes, of which 80,200 tonnes were ferroniobium (its flagship product, used in steelmaking) and 8,000 tonnes were specialty products (several alloys for highly sophisticated applications).
The big challenge is to develop the niobium market, which is concentrated in steel production and still has a lot of room for growth, says Rodrigo Amado, chief strategy and new business officer.
The company is increasing its investment in research and development programs as part of its strategy to expand metal’s applications. This year, the company increased its spending on programs to R$340 million from R$260 million, of which R$94 million is intended for the area of batteries for electric vehicles. CBMM already has advanced projects with the Japanese company Toshiba (undergoing tests on cars in Japan) and with VW in Brazil, which involves the production of electric buses in the Resende (Rio de Janeiro) unit.

Mr. Lima says there are 41 projects related to batteries. By the end of the decade, it is expected that 25% (or 35,000 tonnes) of niobium will be produced for this application. The use in the production of steel, via niobium iron, is still the flagship of the company — 80,000 tonnes in 2022, most of it purchased by China. Without considering this part of R&D, the company is investing another R$700 million this year in the conclusion of a new oxide plant and at the beginning of the installation of a large tailings disposal plant. The company grossed R$10.95 billion last year, with a R$4.52 billion profit.
