With not much “standard” sub-genres in this genre, I’ve went with my own! If you are new to the genre, here’s something that may help you make sense and pick up books to your liking.
What the heck do these sub-genres indicate?
GameLit is in general books which have elements which you might have seen or played in a game e.g skill trees, stat sheets etc. These elements may feature to varying extents, but present they will be! Now there are various permutations and combinations on how this will occur in a game and I’ll try to elaborate on some here
LitRPG is a sub-genre of GamLit and probably the catch all. Technically it is to capture books which feature the Role Playing (RPG) elements, but in practical use, LitRPG and GameLit are being used interchangeably.
But then, genres and titles are what we deem it to be. So pay less attention to the classifications and let’s get down to the books themselves.
Post/Apocalyptic Earth
Now, this is my favourite sub-genre! As the name indicates, books in this sub-genre takes place in relatively modern Earth. In most books, Earth has been assimilated into a bigger multi-planet universe is ruled by a “system” that implements game elements on all acquired worlds. Now this assimilation is mostly a forced takeover which usually results in death of vast swaths of humanity with the rest forced to adapt and fight for survival. Though the books start off with a ‘apocalypse’, being end of earth as we know now, the stories are post-apocalyptic survival in new Earth.
These are sweeping books which span over multiple geographies of current Earth and often venture out to space and include alien planets and species as Earth-people come to grasp with the macro “System”. It’s closest to epic fantasy and one which would include multiple game genres. You get the RPG elements of MC being forced into a leader of survivors leading them to salvation, RTS elements of MC forced to re-build towns/cities which were destroyed by the apocalypse and First Person Action elements where MC leads the fight against the ‘minions’ one vs one!
Set in Game World
These are books where
– Much of the plot happens in a world that has game elements, and/or– Where the MC is from Earth but are transported to the above said magical world having game elements where they have their adventures, trials and tribunals.
Now, these are a [very] close second favourite of mine as they might have many of the features listed in earlier sub-genre, i.e. having RPG elements of MC being forced into a leader leading them to safety, RTS elements of MC forced to re-build towns/cities and First Person Action elements of MC leads the fight against the ‘minions’ one vs one!
Fantasy:
Science Fiction:
Other notable series:
Chaos Seeds by Aleron Kong
Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games [VRMMORPG]
This is a set ins current/post-modern earth Earth where MC has access to ‘Total Immersion’ Virtual reality modules which connect directly to MC body/brain and provide a fully real life experience but in-game.I love this because this not only has full fantasy world experience, but may also include a side story of the game AI trying to gain sentience through in-game experiences, which adds a whole new dimension to the story.
Other Notable series:
Good Guys by Eric UglandThe Gam3 by Cosimo YapLimitless Lands by Dean HengarNew Era Online by Shemer KuznitsRipple System by Kyle Kirrin
Progression & Cultivation Fantasy
Straight from the words of Andrew Rowe:“Progression Fantasy is a fantasy subgenre term for the purpose of describing a category of fiction that focuses on characters increasing in power and skill over time. These are stories where characters are often seen training to learn new techniques, finding ways to improve their existing skills, analyzing the skills of opponents, and/or gaining literal or figurative “levels” of power.
Progression in the subgenre title specifically refers to character power progression, not other types of progression (e.g. increasing wealth, noble rank, etc.) that occur in stories.”
You’d ideally see defined power levels that a character will have to progress as he travels to his objective.
Fantasy:
\ Mage Errant in my humble opinion is more of mainstream fantasy rather than Progression, but is often listed in here.*
Science Fiction:
Cultivation:
Cultivation Books is very similar to Progression, but we see higher degree of influence of Martial Arts where characters progressively get stronger by “cultivating” their own body. Most books are based on or have inspirations from concepts from Wuxia, Xianxia etc, though there are good books which port the same into a western Setting.
\ The books are translated from Chinese and available for free at freewebnovel.com. It certainly is a good translation, but there may be slight awkwardness to the prose, dialogue and naming conventions which takes some getting used to. But give it time and get past it and you’ll get treated to a the ultimate OP MC + epic battles progression fantasy of all time!*
Slice of Life Fantasy
Books in this genre are set in a fantasy world and may have added elements of fantasy, GameLit, Progression or Cultivation but the focus is on a contemporary skill/job. e.g. the MC is a farmer or a cook and the plot focus is one day-to-day aspects of the job spiced up with game/fantasy elements. It’s a loveable niche genre that is the epitome of comfort reads guaranteed to put you in a blissful state of mind!
GameLit – Time Travel / Tower Ascension
I’m actually clubbing two distinct sub-genres in here. Most of these books involve either time travel and/or climbing a tower with levels of different difficulty to achieve a objective. Each level features varying challenges and difficulty, making this close the game but very interesting nevertheless!
GameLit – Dungeon Core
This sub-genre has books where the MC has become/reincarnated as a core controlling a dungeon and has to protect it’s inhabitants against people who want to invade/clear it. Fascinating sub-genre as we have a MC who’s a Dungeon Core and can’t interact with his subjects through normal means and provides a completely different perspective to people-management.
Other Notable Series
Special shout-out to God of Gnomes to it’s scintillating prose making it one of the best in genre!
GameLit – Crafting Based
Now these are books purely focused on rafting elements. These are people who create stuff and not directly involved in fights like most other genres. This is a niche genre as these elements are usually included partly in other genres described above, but for enthusiasts, below are books which concentrate purely on crafting and intrigue associated with that (believe me, they are interesting!)

2023.06.08 19:00 Maki_The_Angel Naming help

I’m writing a story with two characters who are from the Shenzhen area. I want to make sure that when I write their names in Cantonese correctly. I be tried my best to do research of common names, characters etc, but I’m not a Cantonese speaker, so it’s very probable that there are errors in my work. If any speakers could check what I’ve got so far I’d greatly appreciate it! I want to make sure I’m accurately representing southern Chinese culture, so getting the character’s names correct is greatly important to me.
Family name : 賴 (wanted pronunciation: Lai 3)
Granddaughter: 美伶 (wanted pronunciation: Mei Ling., Tones don’t matter, whatever sounds the most natural for a girl’s name. If it’s not a name, any suggestions with Mei in it would be appreciated!)
Grandfather: 拉琪 (wanted pronunciation: Ka Chun. Again, whichever tones work for the male name assuming it is a name and the website I used wasn’t lying)
Grandfather also has a nickname in English: Lucky. He’s a poker player who’s known for his incredible luck. Sometimes he’ll write his nickname out in Cantonese phonetically the way one would write a non-Chinese name (eg: how us state names are written out for the sounds the characters produce regardless of the meaning of the characters themselves). My best try for writing out Lucky this way is 喇棋 (wanted pronunciation: laa3 kei4) Please correct this as I have my doubts this is what I’m going for)
Thank you so so much for any help! Cantonese is a beautiful language and the last thing I want to do is butcher it

2023.06.08 18:40 Gwyn_the_flame Most intense/romantic moment with your f/o?

Just questioning for interest how you love to spend times with your f/o and which experiences you collected together🥰
My husband and I shared many romantic moments, so I don't think I can mention all of them, but I'll try.
At first I'd say Shadows proposal to me on my b-day in 2018 is something I won't ever forget💜We got married 2 times on 4th of june in the same year, 1 time while dreaming away on a place we love, then another time in croatia (since this time I'm used to wear a ring almost regularly when I go outside). We've got married another time on my b-day in 2020, this time with an online-certificate, which is now inside my journal.
We're used to take walks through a field where we're living and it's always nice to feel his hand inside mine and to have private conversations there, since there are almost no other people.
Our time on tenerife in 2016 (We've been together for 6 months when we went there, everything was still new and we enjoyed this first vacation together)! We loved the beach, taking walks through the surroundings, sitting on the balcony until night while listening to music with a good book and chocolate and to dance in our hotel room😊
All the evenings/nights when we have comfy times with series and movies.
Our 5th wedding anniversary last sunday: we danced to "Baby, I love your way" and enjoyed the nights in our personal world we regularly visit every night (and I feel even closer to him since then, we're always taking our chances to be near each other).
Every moment when Shadow's keeping me up while I'm sad (like the last time 2 weeks ago when my best friend quit our friendship).
When we're singing together or he's encouraging me to play guitar again (I love his voice and his guitar-skills)!
The many times we talked about our past and how we developed our feelings for each other, it's always a nice journey through our transformation. We often talk about our first meeting in general and how we had a bond to each other from the first moment (and how I stole the first kiss from him, though both of our feelings weren't ready for a relationship at this time😅). We love to enjoy profound conversations about everything.
Our dates when we have our home for ourselves, so I can cook for us (more or less successful and he's never complaining), we can sing as loud as we want and snuggle on the sofa.
Every moment in which I feel he's taking care of me and isn't leaving me on my own, especially in difficult situations💜
The last small summer-festival in my home town where we listened to guitar songs while holding hands after having a chinese dinner.
When we visited Disneyland Paris last year (it was my first vacation without real life-companion), Shadow encouraged me and had the power to calm me down, cause I was very nervous the first moments. (Okay, actually every journey with him is memorable for me).
How he's interested in my art and is motivating me, though he isn't calling himself a "creative soul" (he definitely can be creative, especially in words, music and organizing dates!)
At last I'd say that also our moments while my therapy were highly intense, cause he never left me out of sight and learned many things aswell. We even shared a room, so we could talk about everything as muchas we wanted to. I've got bullied at my schools and since Shadow and I got to know each other while my last school-year, I learned to know his protective side very fast (though he couldn't do as much as he liked to do, his words and presence still gave me a positive feeling and the courage to move on).
Alright, I think this was enough to answer my own question😅It just feels so good to talk about it that openly, it's my first time ever that I'm getting this feeling to be understood🥰

2023.06.08 18:28 theSaltyScallop Just found out my partner booked an Airbnb for the Taylor Swift concert in Butler, KY. What's the best way to get into the city without having to drive over the Roebling bridge?

It's too late to to find a new place to book as I've been trying for the last several days. Ideally, we would like to park/walk but we are not adverse to using public transportation either.

2023.06.08 17:47 hodsct59 Belmont Friday June 9 Choices

These are the horses and races that I will use while seeking my next decent score at Belmont Park on Friday. if the races are not cancelled. As I have mentioned many times, horse racing is a hard game to master but usually because no strategy is developed regarding what tends to repeat itself often, just with different horses from time-to-time and a money management system that helps one save money until they find a race, they are able to take advantage of. My strategy concerning betting has always been "bet a little to win a lot" but refers to taking risks most will not even think of trying. Good Luck to all.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Race 2: Allowance --- Purse $95,000 --- 3 YOs & Up N/W 1x Or N/W 2 Lifetime --- 6 Furlong Turf:
1)Bold Journey (6-5) won 3rd start back against state bred & O/C foes, so eligibility to race here is still intact. Next out he was overmatched against G1 foes and last start, in this class and condition, he finished 2nd as he and the winner produced their best run together as they were last two away from gate. Now moves from outside post to an inside one and has two decent and useful works since that start.4x4 to Alydar, 5(C)x5(F)x5(F) to Raise A Native. He will as a coupled interest to 2) Sousa Summer and will be listed in program as 1 and 1A.
8)Fredo (8-1) broke his maiden 4 starts back while gate to wire at one mile on grass. Connections have been using the right running style but a mile on any surface is probably a little further than his best distance. 7 of his 12 lifetime starts have come at a mile or further on grass or the AWT and he has the race record to prove he struggles going that far. His sprint races have all been lightning fast early and he has been able to get a clear early lead but finds a spot that looks a little lite on early speed. Broodmare sire, Gone West, sired 2 unbeaten champion fillies in France that never raced past 7 furlongs and 2 U.S. champion colts (Came Home & Speightstown) in his career that had front running speed to burn. 5x3 to Storm Bird & Mr. Prospector.
6)Giant's Fire (15-1) broke her maiden 3 starts back while laying close but off the early pace and managed to get up late. Next two starts, jockeys tried to send him early and could not even get close to the early pace and faded to finish last in both. He cuts back to a sprint in here and jockey need to let him settle early and then pick it up as they go around the turn, which is exactly what his dam line and broodmare sire is suggesting he will be better doing. Broodmare sire, Street Cry, sired two of the world's top fillies in Zenyatta & Winx and both were master late runners. 4th dam, Aptostar, is a multiple graded stakes winning filly that blew by several top fields. 5(C)x5(C)x5(F) to Fappiano. Simply waiting to be ridden correctly and will blow up the exacta when jockey lets him run his race.
9)Carpe's Dream (15-1) is making his first start of the year. Trainer has put 8 works in him in the last two months, the first six were more or less canters around the track but last two works indicates those works was beneficial to him. Likely not ready to beat a few of these but looks like he will have a pace to run at late. 4x4 to Storm Bird.
My Risks $5 Ex Box 1-8, $1 Tri Box 1-8-9, $.30 Super Box 1-6-8-9, $.50 Super Key 8 with 1-6-9 with 1-6-9 with 1-6-9. Total Risk $26.20.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Race 3: Maiden Special Weight --- Purse $75,000 --- 3 YOs & Up New York Bred --- One Mile:
3) Woodside Warrior (30-1) has started twice and has yet to pick up his feet. However, this is a weak field on NY bred maidens, and he is likely wanting to get to the early lead and has the bloodlines to do so. Trainer is adding blinkers and he has three good works since his last start, most likely all three while wearing the hood (but does not have to be reported as equipment change until race day). He should be fast enough to get the early lead due to his grandsire, Speightstown, and his broodmare sire, Freud, an unraced full brother to Giant's Causeway, progeny also got much braver when they were able to obtain the early lead. 4(C)x5(C)x3(F) to Storm Cat, 4x5 to Mr. Prospector, 5x4 to Seattle Slew, 5x5 to Secretariat.
7) Battleoflexington (6-1) has started twice this year, the first start where he was trailing at the first call and then grind his way to a 4th place finish beaten less than 4 lengths for the win but had received his training in Florida, then shipped to Aqueduct and then asked to run within a 6-day period, a tough task for a seasoned runner much less a maiden. In his second start, he returned in 16 days after his first start with another work, the addition of lasix, and put back on grass, where he did not pick up his feet. Now gets a month to recuperate and adds three more works, two of them useful and is not getting the kitchen sink thrown at him for the first time this year. Will likely respond to the lesser confusion that he has been presented with. 5x4 to Mr. Prospector, 5x5 to Halo.
2) Refuah (3-1) broke his maiden two back but was disqualified and placed second for interference. He now has 11 placings in 14 lifetime starts and just does not seem like he was a will to win. He will likely eventually win but it is a waste of time and money trying to predict when. Therefore, I will use him underneath only. 5(C)x4(F)x4(F) to Mr. Prospector, 5x5 to Northern Dancer & Halo.
My Risks: $8 Ex Straight 3-7, $3 Tri Straight 3-7 with 3-7 with 2. Total Risk $14.00.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Race 5: Starter Allowance $50K --- Purse $65,000 --- 3 YOs & Up Which has started for $50K or less and N/W 1x --- One Mile:
5) Ice Road (6-1) has started once this year on the speed favoring dirt track, ran a even race and then change trainers after that start. New trainer gave him two more months off, then put 5 more works in him over a month period in Florida and shipped him to NY where he has not recorded a work in three weeks. Each trainer has his own method of how to get a horse ready and since he wins at 18%, I believe he might have this one better prepared than it appears. He has only two lifetime starts on dirt, a third in the mud in the 2nd leg of Canadian TC and his last start which is decent considering the track he ran on and the brief layoff. Outcross in his first 5 generations.
1)Arrebato (8-1) broke his maiden three starts back in the second start of his career by tracking the early pace, then sent for the lead nearing six furlongs and drawing away in the stretch. Tried the same tactics in his next start on a sloppy track but one that was using same tactics as him got a big jump on him when the front runner stopped and won for fun while this one could not make up any ground and lost second at the wire to the deep closer in the race. Next out, he was tried against 3 YOs stakes company but they proved to be much too tough for him at this point of his career as he finished last. Back to the company where he fits best so far with 4 stamina building works since his last start and a change to a better jockey should help. His sire, Goldencents, won 2 editions of the G1 BC Dirt Mile. Broodmare sire, Badge Of Silver, won his first three lifetime start but was knocked off the derby trail in 2003 when he came out of the La Derby with a leg injury in his first loss but returned to finish 2nd In the Cigar Mile twice & 3rd in the BC Turf Mile. 5x5 to Mr. Prospector.
3) Long Term (5-2) has started three times this year, breaking his maiden in his second start by taking the lead nearing the half mile, then open a clear led into the stretch, then managed to hold 2 late runners safe in the stretch. Next out, he attempted the same strategy, but another beat him to the punch, and he flattened out in the stretch run to finish a well beaten third. Three useful works since his last start and he should be sitting on his best race in his fourth start of the year after a 10-month break. 5x5 to Northern Dancer & Sir Ivor.
7) Thunderian (6-1) was purchased out of a sale in Feb. for $28K by current connections, was gelded and has five starts for him with one win and three thirds. His last start was his only non-placing this year, he drops a level and returns in 9 days. Likely trying to entice someone to claim the horse before he tails off his best form. 4x5 to Northern Dancer.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 1-5, $1 Tri Box 1-3-5, $.30 Super Box 1-3-5-7, $.50 Super Key 1 with 3-5-7 with 3-5-7 with 3-5-7. Total Risk: $26.20.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Race 6: Allowance O/C $62.5K ---- Purse $100,000 --- 3 YOs & Up N/w $18K 2x or N/W 3 Lifetime or Claiming $62,500 --- 6 Furlongs:
11) High Connection (8-1) is making his first start of the year and his first start for new trainer Pletcher after being removed from Baffert's barn for the 2nd time late last year, likely because owners were expecting much more from a horse with his bloodlines and purchase price. Trainer has put a dozen works in him since he re-entered the work tab with one missed work while preparing others for derby week races and works (likely was missed on chart for due work date). However, trainer moved his next three works to 6-day intervals that should got him back on track. 4x3 to Deputy Minister.
4) High Oak (20-1) looked like he was going to develop into a nice runner but took a hard fall in last year's FOY stakes and is obviously having a hard time (or flashbacks) getting over his tragic fall. But he is showing signs of putting that behind him but needs some help from a jockey to let him run his race and not force him to get too close to the lead early, which was his style before the fall. Believes he gets that help with John V. He has three useful works since his last start and moves back to the surface where both sides of his family have the most success. 4(C)x5(C)x4(F) to Mr. Prospector, 5x5 to Secretariat. 4th dam, Leix, is 1/2 sister to Shenanigans and developed her own important line.
1)Cadazero(8-1) was purchased out of an April sale for $60K and makes his first start for new connections. Trainer is known for putting slow works into his trainees preferring to let them go much further than recorded work and follows his usual pattern with this one. However, he has 2 graded stakes wins and has to use the tag because of them but is the class of this field. 4x5 to Mr Prospector & Northern Dancer, 5x5 to Raise A Native.
2)Rotknee (3-1) has started three times this year including winning his last race in a good time, 6 days after registering a bullet work that suggested he was reaching his peak fitness. He has one work since that effort, an easy four furlongs that should set him up for another top effort and personally much prefer to see this type of work than another fast/bullet work which rarely help a horse to maintain his form and can do more harm than good. Only problem with him is he is facing a pretty salty field here and does not show facing a field this tough. 5(C)x4(F)x4(F) to Mr. Prospector.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 4-11, $1 Tri Box 1-4-11, $.30 Super Box 1-2-4-11, $1 Super 11 with 1-2-4 with 1-2-4 with 1-2-4. Total Risk $29.20.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Race 7: Allowance --- Purse $80,000 --- 3 YOs & Up NY Bred N/W $18K 1x or N/W 2 Races Lifetime --- 7 Furlongs Turf:
8) Athenry (12-1) has one start this year which he sat mid-pack early but was out moved by eventual winner into the stretch and chased that one through the stretch while just holding onto second at the wire. He has two works since that effort, a useful work followed by a 3 furlongs blowout work 4 days before next start, likely to try to get him closer to the early pace. 4x5 to Raise A Native, 5x4 to Mr. Prospector. Also has a Secretariat crossing thru two daughters and plenty of Princequillo crossings thru his daughter, Somethingroyal, dam of Secretariat & his son Prince John (3 crosses in dam line alone).
4) Be Of Courage (8-1) has started twice this year which in first start, he did not pick up his feet to finish last and then in next start when stretched out to a mile, set the early pace until collared at the top of the stretch but continued to show good heart by battling back before being outrun to finish 3rd. Castellano, abroad for his only win to date, retakes the mount as he cuts back to 7 furlongs. One bullet 4 furlongs work since that last effort. 4x5 to Danzig, 4(C)x5(C)x5(F) to Northern Dancer, 5x5 to Mr. Prospector & Blushing Groom.
1)War Terminator (20-1) has one start this year, back in January, which he did not pick up his feet in an open bred O/C race he was probably overmatched in to begin with. Change of trainers since that effort and a move back up North to face NY bred should help. He finished 3rd in his last effort before leaving the area late last year in same class and conditions as this race and a repeat of that effort puts him in the thick of the outcome of this race. Has 5 works for this effort, the first two were leg stretching type works, followed by two good works and an easy work on grass and around the dogs should have him primed and ready. 4(C(x5(C)x5(F) to Northern Dancer, 5x4 to Fappiano.
7) Dr. Settle's Dream (12-1) will be making his first start of the year. he has eight works to prepare from this start, but last two are typical of works trainer usually gives trainees when he thinks they are ready and rarely tips his hand to indicate how fit they are. But he goes back to Alvarado, who has been his main jockey he uses for the last 5-6 years when he believes they are their fittest. He broke his maiden at first asking, then took on open bred stakes runner and finished last after setting the pace for a half mile at one mile on grass. Will likely appreciate the move back to stater bred and gets lasix for the first time. 4x5 to Mr. Prospector, 5(C)x5(C)x4(F) to Northern Dancer.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 4-8, $1 Tri Box 1-4-8, $.30 Super Box 1-4-7-8, $1 Super Key 4 with 1-7-8 with 1-7-8 with 1-7-8. Total Risk $29.20.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Race 8: New York Stakes(G1) --- Purse $600,000 --- 4 YOs & Up F&M --- 1 1/4 Mile Turf:
5) Virginia Joy (15-1) has started twice this year, the first effort where she sat far off the pace but put in a good late kick to finish 4th. Next start, she was 3rd for most of the way in a four-horse field but managed to get up for second in an extremely slow-paced race. However, her best races have come when she gets up close to the early pace and makes her best move before others have a chance to and she gets a jockey who will give her that opportunity in here. 3x3 to Sadler's Wells, 4x4 to Kris, 5x5 to Nijinsky II & Mill Reef.
8) With The Moonlight (9-2) has started four times this year, winning her first two starts in grade 2 stakes in the U.A.E, then shipping to the U.S. and finishing 2nd in a G1 stakes and then onto England to run one of the dullest races of her career in a G2. Now back to the U.S. but with a work on grass around the dogs since arriving. Trainer is no stranger to big races and have to believe this one will fire her best effort. 5x5 to Mr. Prospector.
7) War Like Goddess (6-5) has started once this year and beat a G3 field fairly easy but these will be much tougher and cuts back to a distance she has never won at, except her maiden win against non-winners. Still, she is the one to beat but regardless, I will take that chance on beating her at her likely off odds because there are simply too many things that can go wrong, regardless of how good one is. Bet her and you will not make any money that is worth the risk. Bet against her and you will likely lose but there is a possibility to make good money by taking a small risk. 5x5 to Northern Dancer.
1)Flirting Bridge (20-1) has started once this year and won her second condition allowance race. She is bred to at least want a 1/4-mile distance, but this will be only her second start at the distance and in her first start narrowly missed becoming a G1 stakes winner. She has five more works since her first start and they should all be helpful in moving her forward. 4x3 to Danehill, 4x4 to Mr. Prospector, 4(C)x5(F)x5(F) to Northern Dancer.
My Risk: $5 Ex Box 5-8, $1 Tri Box 5-7-8, $.30 Super Box 1-5-7-8, $.50 Super Key 5 with 1-7-8 with 1-7-8 with 1-7-8. Total Risks $26.20.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Race 9: Acorn Stakes(G1) --- Purse $500,000 --- 3 YO Fillies ---- 1 1/16 Mile:
1)Dorth Vader (10-1) has started 4 times with 1 win in her 2nd start of the year as her only board finish. In her last, she was sent to pressure the early pace and it set the race up for several late runners to make a major impact. But in her third start back which was her only win, she proved her would rather rate behind the early speed and then make her move after they tire each other considerably. Believe she again gets that opportunity as there are at least two in here that looks like they want the early lead at all costs. She has changed trainers since the Ky. Oaks and he decided to give Velasquez a try to relax her as most jockey tried thus far has burnt her out. 5x5 to Storm Bird, 5(C)x5(C)x5(F)x5(F) to Mr. Prospector.
8)Accede (8-1) has started twice in her career, breaking her maiden at first asking then in her last start, raced near the rear early and tried to grind her way into contention but it proved futile was front running speed was holding well that day. Trainer has put three more good works in her since that last race and she looks as ready as any in here. Complete outcross in her first 5 generations but is loaded with Teddy & Commando bloodlines.
7)Goodgirl Badhabits (10-1) has started twice and ran away from the competition in both starts but now gets an acid test to see if she is for real. Personally, I think she will pass that test but lose this battle though not likely to fade too bad if she gets over her bad gate habits. She has three good works since her last start which is not really surprising since she has plenty of early speed. The question with her is how well she will handle the pressure she will receive in here. Both her sire, Mastery and broodmare sire, Vindication, were unbeaten in 4 lifetime starts each but both were injured and retired during their 2 YO careers (I let you figure out who trained both). However, this one's 4th dam, Imagining, is also dam of multiple year champion filly, Serena's Song, who also was an excellent producer of solid foals. 5x3 to Seattle Slew, 5x4 to Storm Bird & Weekend Surprise.
4) Occult (12-1) has started twice this year, winning a listed stake race in her first start at 9 furlongs while staying on the favorable part of track that was listed as good and then faltering in her next start on a fast track, also at 9 furlongs. A filly she faced in both these races came back and ran a fast closing second in the Ky Oaks, so you will need to take her speed figures and toss them. She is much faster than those figures suggest but now gets a chance to prove it. Actually, believe she would prefer sitting off the early pace and then making her move turning into the stretch. She has 7 works since her last start with most of them good moves which likely means she is still on the improve. 4x4 to Storm Cat, 5x5 to Halo.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 1-8, $1 Tri Box 1-7-8, $.30 Super Box 1-4-7-8, $1 Super Key 1 with 4-7-8 with 4-7-8 with 4-7-8. Total Risk $29.20.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Race 10: Belmont Gold Cup S(G2) --- Purse $250,000 --- 4 YOs & Up --- 2 Miles Turf:
Pass.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Race 11: Intercontinental Stakes(G3) --- Purse $200,000 --- 4 YOs & Up F&M --- 6 Furlongs Turf:
3) Clitheroe (15-1) has started once this year and won a first level condition allowance. She takes a big step up in class, but connections likely thought highly of her to drop north of $800K as a 2 YO purchase. She has two works since her U.S. debut win, a good work at 6 furlongs and a good work at 4 furlongs. She gets to race at the same track for 2 races in a row after switching tracks every start through her first 9 tries. 4(C)x5(C)x4(F) to Nureyev, 5(C)x4(F)x5(F) to Northern Dancer.
2) Sarah Harper (6-1) has started 3 times this year and has finished 3rd in two of those starts. However, her current form cycle started back in August of last year and she now has seven starts without a win but a second and 4 thirds. Her last start was her 2nd lifetime start on grass and she ran into a filly named Caravel both times. Caravel upset the boys in the BC Turf Sprint last year at 40-1 in gate to wire fashion. In Sarah Harper's first six starts of her career, she set quarter fractions of 21 4/5 seconds or faster, but those have been missing since she has returned. Why? It seems to me her trainer has been trying to get her to rate and it is not working as plan. Now it's time to go back to the catch me if you can type game. One good work since her last start. Can wire this field with a good break. 4x5 to Danzig.
7) Bubble Rock (5-2) has started twice this year which she finished 2nd in her first start in a first condition allowance, then return in a listed stakes race that is often the springboard race for sprint grass fillies to bigger and better races and won. Has 2 good works on grass around the dogs since that effort and a repeat performance would not be a surprise. 4x5 to Mr. Prospector, 4(C)x5(F)x5(F) to Northern Dancer.
1)Poppy Flower (9-2) has started twice this year with her first start being against O/C foes where she finished 3rd in a five-horse field that was nothing more than an out to help her get fitter, then a listed stakes where she finished second to the likely favorite in here. She has three works since her last start, the first work was a maintenance breeze followed by 2 good works that likely has her ready to give a top effort again. 5(C)x5(C)x 5(F) to Northern Dancer.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 2-3, $1 Tri Box 2-3-7, $.30 Super Box 1-2-3-7, $1 Super Key 2 with 1-3-7 with 1-3-7 with 1-3-7. Total Risk $29.20.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7th Race Late P5: 1,4 with 5,8 with 1,8 with 2,11 with 1,2. Total Risk $16.00. Total Risk All Bets: $225.40.

2023.06.08 17:24 OnlineFlipper Help: I just moved south of Lincoln Park & am overwhelmed with food choices....

So here I am on Reddit looking for some good advice on what your personal favorites/preferences are. I'm overly exhausted trying to make a judgment call on Google reviews. Zooming in on Google maps to see "hidden gems" and etc.
I've figured out some amazing spots like bavette's & Siam noodles for Thai. But my research and ability only goes so far and I need your guys help 😂.
Best way to try and explain what's best might be by copy paste categories: (any area in Chicago within reason using the el etc I am open to!)
Favorite Italian:
Chicago style pizza:
Favorite hot dog place:
Favorite Chinese:
Favorite Thai:
Favorite ramen:
Favorite steakhouses/steak:
Favorite Mexican:
Favorite Indian:
Favorite Ethiopian:
Favorite place to get sandwiches:
Favorite breakfast:
Favorite dessert spot(ice cream or bakery?):
I appreciate all answers and the admin if this thread stays up.. Thank you again.
I'm sure this isn't an original post, but I find Reddit posts 6 years later doing sub niche research often. Maybe it can be an updated stepping stone. I tried to break it down by category this time instead of the bland "where do I go"

2023.06.08 17:03 Business-File3234 Have changes in South Korea's political relations influenced the current state of K-pop?

Here's a summary of a lot of information I gathered about K-pop history and how I think changes in political relations between Korea and other countries ended up affecting the current K-pop scene.
Basically, from the beginning, K-pop was thought of as an export product. K-pop's first expansion was into Japan with Boa and TVXQ. Then K-pop infiltrated China and the SEA. But despite coming first in Japan, K-pop's main focus for most of the 2000s and at least half of the 2010s was China. No wonder SM's first foreign idol was a Chinese.
What happened was that over the years the political relations between China and South Korea deteriorated, to the point that in 2016 a process of distancing between the two countries began, which ended up leading to the banning, or at least restrictions of good part of Korean entertainment, mainly K-pop and K-dramas. Until today, for example Korean idols cannot promote in Chinese territory, which also ended the possibility of K-pop concerts in China.
Then we come to 2017 and we have two events that were fundamental to the success of K-pop today. First we had TWICE's debut in Japan, which ended up resulting in the Japanese public's interest in K-pop again. As far as I know, K-pop has been weak in Japan in the years leading up to 2017, but TWICE's wild success has brought interest in K-pop back. No wonder, TWICE members are credited with improving Japanese-Korean relations.
In the same year of 2017, on the other side of the world, we had BTS exploding in the US, and across the West, with DNA, making them the first K-pop group to truly conquer the North American market. The following year, in 2018, BLACKPINK also achieved success in the west with DDDD, which brought even more attention to K-pop from western audiences.
In 2018, the fourth generation of K-pop began and this generation, like any other, was strongly influenced by the previous generation, and this can be clearly seen by the directions that the K-pop market took from 2018 onwards. Korea and China, we saw a decrease in the number of Chinese idols, while with the increase of interest in K-pop in Japan and the West, we saw an increase in Japanese idols and English-speaking idols.
From then on, we had an ever-increasing growth of K-pop on the global stage, especially during the pandemic years, but which remains firm until today. Now in 2023 the market value of the main K-pop companies (HYBE, JYP, SM, YG) combined have increased considerably compared to last year. And, not randomly, the two companies with the best performance today are HYBE and JYP, which are the two companies that invest the most in content for Japan and the US, which are the two largest music markets in the world today.
My point is: just as K-pop's withdrawal from the Chinese market is due to the political withdrawal from China and Korea, I believe that the strength of K-pop currently in the Japanese and American market directly reflects the political rapprochement between Japan. , Korea and USA. Japan and South Korea have a history of political friction that dates back to the beginning of the last century, as a result of the process of colonization of imperial Japan over Korea. But despite the historic conflict, currently the relationship between the countries is more peaceful, largely because of the relationship that both countries have with the US. After World War II, both Japan and Korea were occupied by the USA, much of the American musical influence on Korean and Japanese music comes from that period as well. And in recent years both Japan and Korea have strengthened their political relations with the US and also with each other. And I believe this is reflected in the rapprochement of Asian popular culture with North American popular culture that has happened in recent years, especially in relation to Korean culture.
Since the beginning of the decade we have had the first South Korean film to win an Oscar, BTS being the first Korean group to be nominated for a grammy, the most watched series on Netflix, Round 6 being a South Korean series. In addition to K-pop as a whole having gained more space in the American market in recent years, with several K-pop groups participating in music festivals in the country, signing contracts with American record companies, etc.
I would like to know your opinion now, do you think that the rapprochement between the USA, Japan and Korea is related to the strengthening of K-pop in the two biggest music markets in the world? Is all information in my text correct? If not, could you tell me where I went wrong?

Stories
Javid / Shamash
Javid is like an unstoppable force, always in motion and seeming like he never takes a break. His subordinates look up to him, with some even attempting to emulate his schedule. No matter how hard they try, they soon realize that they cannot keep up with his relentless pace.
After completing patrols, training, and handling official paperwork, Javid finds solace in the training ground during his breaks. There he can be found practicing his swordsmanship. He remains busy at all times, but that doesn't mean he lacks personal interests.
Despite his stern and selfless demeanor, Javid secretly enjoys listening in on the casual conversations of his subordinates. Sometimes, the soldiers discover small, anonymous gifts by their bedside that bring a smile to their faces.
If they were to approach Javid with these gifts and ask if he sent them, he would undoubtedly deny it. Javid is known for his straightforward style of speech. Some may perceive his approach as harsh or even merciless, but those who truly know him understand that fairness is always his top priority.
While some subordinates find Javid to be strict, his strength and dependability have earned him the trust and respect of many.
He shows no mercy to the weak and never becomes intimidated by the strong. He consistently expresses his opinions with frankness, even if they come across as sarcastic to others. However, Javid is indifferent to how others perceive him.
Javid hails from a modest family in Kush Town. He has a younger brother, and his parents work as guides in the Old Kush City. Javid selflessly gave his brother the opportunity to pursue education, while he himself enrolled in military school.
Thriving in the military environment, Javid underwent his transformation during a simulated battle, gaining the powers of Shamash. When the Withering Miracle arrived, Javid willingly stationed himself in Kush and assumed the role of a Marshal.
Javid's unwavering commitment to fairness and justice has always been paramount to him. He even went so far as to incarcerate his own brother for committing white-collar crimes. While many admire his unwavering integrity, some criticize him for what they perceive as a degree of mercilessness.
Due to the strange changes brought on by the Withering Miracle, Javid had to make a cruel decision. To protect the civilians, he and other Marshals volunteered to bait the Miramon out, but...
Tragically, Javid was the sole survivor.
Haunted by the guilt of losing his comrades, Javid decided to shoulder the burden and willingly subjected himself to being imprisoned at the entrance of the Withering Miracle.
Perhaps he believes this perpetual torment in the darkness is the only path to salvation for those souls he couldn't save...
Hestia / Ginny
Boom! A loud bang reverberates from the kitchen, causing Ginny to rush out, coughing. She holds a plate in her hand that contains a blackened substance.
The assistant chefs would persuade her to dump the failed dish, but Ginny adamantly insists that a chef should never waste food under any circumstance.
Having grown up in the back of the kitchen her parents ran, she developed a deep appreciation for the value of food. She believes that to become a skilled chef, one must first cherish the food.
Even if a dish doesn't turn out as planned, Ginny adheres to her principles and eats whatever she makes, regardless of its appearance.
"Well... It might not look appealing, but it actually tastes good!"
Due to her remarkable culinary skills, Ginny has risen to the position of head chef at the renowned entertainment hotel, the Golden City.
Her pursuit of culinary perfection led to the powers of Hestia awakening within her during her work. However, the role of head chef proved to be more challenging than she had envisioned...
Gaining fame not only brought Ginny praise but also subjected her to harsh critiques from food critics. Determined to surpass her own complacency, she set out on a journey to discover and create the finest dishes.
Ginny has traveled to every corner of Grandis in her pursuit of the very best flavors and dishes.
There are numerous rumors circulating about Alexa, Master of the Golden City. However, to Ginny, Alexa is simply a beautiful and caring older sister figure. She fails to comprehend why so many people are afraid of Alexa.
Back when Alexa was just a regular employee, she used to frequent Ginny's parents' restaurant. On occasion, Ginny would catch a melancholic expression on Alexa's face, but it always brought joy to Ginny to see her smile after savoring the dishes.
Since becoming the head chef of the Golden City, Alexa has taken great care of Ginny. Their bond has grown so close that they are like real sisters to each other.
Ginny, in turn, is like the little sister Alexa never had, and she delights in presenting new dishes to her every day, always ensuring that the busy master of the Golden City remains healthy and in high spirits!
During her journeys, Ginny discovered that she can channel her powers into her cooking, enhancing the effects of her dishes and even providing antidotes for poisons and revitalizing effects. This newfound ability brings her great delight.
Ginny knows that the path to becoming a master chef is never-ending. As a chef, she believes it is equally important to share the joy of her culinary creations with her customers.
Outside of her work, Ginny loves traveling to various places for inspiration. Over time, an intriguing rumor began circulating throughout Grandis...
Legend has it that there exists an Esper cook whose dishes possess the incredible ability to revitalize those who consume them, relieving them of all worries and troubles.

2023.06.08 16:56 autotldr China navy ship enters Japan waters near Kagoshima Pref. islands

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 41%. (I'm a bot)
A Chinese navy survey ship on Thursday entered Japan's territorial waters near islands in the southwestern prefecture of Kagoshima, the latest sighting of such a vessel in the area since February this year, the Defense Ministry said.
The latest case marked the eighth entry by a Chinese survey ship into waters off Kagoshima since November 2021.
Japan has protested to China and conveyed its strong concern over the latest intrusion through diplomatic channels, the ministry said.
Chinese ships have repeatedly entered Japan's territorial waters or sailed through adjacent areas in recent years, particularly in the vicinity of the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea.
The islets are a continued source of tension between Japan and China, with the Japan Coast Guard separately saying Thursday that two China Coast Guard vessels were spotted in territorial waters near them earlier the same day.
4 Chinese, Russian bombers jointly fly above waters near Japan.

2023.06.08 16:35 ImBrianHello 31 [M4A] Louisville, KY - Move in with me. You don't have to work unless you want to work. Just enjoy life with me.❤️ I'm loving and caring but a little twisted, too. Wanting to build a structured and strong long-term relationship. LGBTQ+ friendly.

Pics of me: https://imgur.com/a/ofKLfJB
Hi! I'm interested in someone who is tired of living a typical and normal life. It is not for me, and I do not want it to be for you either. My passion and creativity need more than just a base level of stimulation. I will say that I am looking for someone who has a mindset that genuinely enjoys pleasing their partner.
In my title, I mention building a strong connection because this does not work without both of our genuine effort. I want you to feel secure and comfortable with truly being yourself with me. I am the type that will understand you at your core. Though I grin from excitement when in thoughts of using my lovely partner in fun ways, my greatest pleasure will be creating that safe environment for you and caring for you deeply. I'm wanting someone who is serious and ready to make this a reality and not a fantasy. Let's be a success story!❤️❤️
In your message to me, introduce yourself but also tell me something which excites you in life. Also, I am not all strict and serious all the time 😊 so tell me a silly or irrational fear or bane of yours, too. Finally, tell me how you feel you best express yourself in a relationship. Communication is important to me, and your satisfaction will mean just as much to me as - well, maybe a little less than - my own.❤️
As for finer details, I have a house in Louisville, Kentucky. If you are in like Lexington or southern Indiana or as far away as Ohio around the Cincinnati area, that would be great for convenience but it isn't necessary as I am open to if you are further away, too. Pending chemistry, I will want to have you here in the near future for a weekend or week so we both see if we feel excellent around each other. A trial run of sorts. For age: I am open. I don't really have a preference there. LGBTQ+ friendly.

2023.06.08 16:34 Simple-Meaning1955 FIRST SHOE HAUL ( 3 PAIRS - 6.9KG 😭) DIOR B22 Black And Silver // Jordan 4 Pure Money (Silver) // AJ1 Travis Scott’s in black

FIRST SHOE HAUL ( 3 PAIRS - 6.9KG 😭) DIOR B22 Black And Silver // Jordan 4 Pure Money (Silver) // AJ1 Travis Scott’s in black
SHIPPING - Shipped with PD-EMS (first time using pd-ems, used other Ems lines before tho - they have been fast and good) SHIPPING COST - 718cny EXTRAS - Shoe trees, Parcel reinforcement, Box Corners
1) DIOR B22 BLACK AND SILVER (358Cny)
Domestic Shipping : (FREE) Honestly pretty slow, took 6 days. Cant complain too much tho as i bet they get a ton of orders.
Shoes : These are very good tbh, they have aa more high end price point buy definitely worth it. Shoes say Dior rather than Dior home, but i believe that is because they are a copy of an older version, new b22 says Dior Home, old just says Dior. As far as the Quality goes, looks really good and feels nice, the material is not amazing but definitely more high end and can tell it’s not cheap rubbish.
Shoe Box & Extras : The box with this is also very good, Looks nice and feels good too, comes with bag as well which is also v good, nice material and looks 1:1. Overall give these 9/10 (Anyone notice and flaws, please leave a comment 🙏)
2) Jordan 4 Pure Moneys (silver) from CN Factory (500cny) ⚪️💸
Domestic Shipping : (10cny) Only took about 3 days which is really fast. Box came in good condition and same with shoes, so 10/10 for that. Shoes : Cn Factory is one of them best places for Quality Jordans by far, although the price is a bit more premium. I’ve never had any major flaws with Jordans from CN, these are the same, very good, only minor stitching flaws with one or two bits slightly fraying, other than that very very good
Box : Box is very good, looks like original, Only thing i’ve noticed is that it gives a suggested retail price - this is not on any Retail jordan’s sold in the UK, not sure if it’s a flaw or versions from other countries have this? anyone know? Overall 9.5/10 easily (Anyone notice and flaws, please leave a comment 🙏)
3) AJ1 Travis Scott Lows from CN Factory ◼️🐝
(Got these 10% off during a sale) 380cny total Domestic Shipping : (10cny) These took just under 3 days, so really good with that, box was in good condition and came with all the extras. Shoes : Again mostly everything from Cn Factory is amazing quality, these are very good, few people have had minor flaws with them, but mostly they are .99:1, so very good, also feels like walking on cardboard, they are super comfortable. Shoe Box & accessories : Box Arrived i’m pretty good condition and looks good compared to r***. Came with extra laces which look nice, Bandanas looks sick asw, should be 1:1 tbh, Also came with nike authentic tags but they are in chinese i think so not too sure what they’re like. Overall 9.5/10 Very good shoes (Anyone notice and flaws, please leave a comment 🙏)

2023.06.08 16:28 SapiosexualGuy 28 [M4F] india / anywhere - tall innocent honest nerdy guy

I want someone to be understanding of my difficulties, worries, and anxieties, and I would do the same for you. Someone who is understanding of the imperfections I can't simply change in myself. Additionally, I will accept and understand all of your flaws. Together, let's get better.
I need to speak. It offers me joy, hope, and relieves my loneliness. I want to strengthen that tie and connection. But eventually, if it's feasible, I'd like to be in a relationship. I recognise that everyone has expectations for a spouse and that no one should lower those standards. And that's completely fine.
I'm looking for a soul connection that is honest and compatible somewhere in the world.
I'm a tall (six feet) , decent-looking man from india who makes enough to support myself but not so much to be able to provide anyone a luxurious lifestyle , sadly. But I can assure you will find my company comforting and feel peaceful with me by your side as a best friend and faithful boyfriend. My field of work is in software / programming.
I'm open to LDR and seeking a lasting relationship. you can originate from any city. I can move away, and one day we'll actually be together.
I am not looking for a woman for sake of having someone to give me kids. I only want you for your affection , emotional and intellectual support , and experiencing the joys of life together . Overpopulation already causes a shortage of resources in this globe. Instead of creating more human offsprings , I would rather add something of value and significance to the world.
I'm open to all races / nationalities but physical attraction is important. I generally feel attracted to white women, Indian women, Europeans , Russians , Australians. While Phillipinos , Chinese, Sri Lankan , Korean , japanese women are cool too if there's a strong heart connection .

2023.06.08 15:15 MRH2 Which well-known people in the past have really exemplified the life of Jesus, a life of love, sacrifice, humility, godliness?

Could you list their names and then a line explaining what they did? Thanks.
I think that from Martin Luther to today would be best. (Someone like St. Francis of Assisi is so far removed from me today, it's hard to relate.) I'm also asking about well known people - if you mention your parents, well, none of us know them.
I feel that there are probably a lot of missionaries we don't know much about. Maybe also Christian leaders in business and society. Also people who willingly gave their life to save others, but then again, this is not strictly a Christian thing; non-Christians do this too.
Here are some amazing saints that I can think of:
  • Catherine and William Booth - started the Salvation Army in 1865, a ministry to alcoholics and homeless.
  • Hudson Taylor - missionary to China, adopted Chinese culture rather than pushing British culture on them, totally dependent on God and prayer for finances.
  • Corrie Ten Boom - concentration camp victim who met with her Nazi guards after WWII and forgave them.
  • George Müller - ran homes for 10,000 orphans in England and never asked for money, relying instead on God to provide
  • Florence Nightingale - revolutionised nursing and public health care. Lived a life of prayer.
  • Henri Dunant and Gustave Moynier - co-founders of the Red Cross, and both devout Christians.

2023.06.08 15:03 ImBrianHello 31 [M4R] Louisville, KY - Move in with me. You don't have to work unless you desire to work. Just enjoy life with me.❤️ I'm loving and caring but a little twisted, too. Wanting to build a structured and strong long-term relationship. Power dynamic friendly. LGBTQ+ friendly.

Pics of me: https://imgur.com/a/ofKLfJB
Hi! I'm interested in someone who is tired of living a typical and normal life. It is not for me, and I do not want it to be for you either. My passion and creativity need more than just a base level of stimulation. I will say that I am looking for someone who has a sub mindset that genuinely enjoys pleasing their partner.
In my title, I mention building a strong connection because this does not work without both of our genuine effort. I want you to feel secure and comfortable with truly being yourself with me. I am the type that will understand you at your core. Though I grin from excitement when in thoughts of using a lovely partner in fun ways, my greatest pleasure will be creating that safe environment for you and caring for you deeply. I'm wanting someone who is serious and ready to make this a reality and not a fantasy.
In your message to me, introduce yourself but also tell me something which excites you in life whether it is in general or power exchange dynamic related. Also, I am not all strict and serious all the time 😊 so tell me a silly or irrational fear or bane of yours, too. Finally, tell me how you feel you best express yourself in a relationship. Communication is important to me, and your satisfaction will mean just as much to me as - well, maybe a little less than - my own.❤️
As for finer details, I have a house in Louisville, Kentucky. If you are in like Lexington or southern Indiana or as far away as Ohio around the Cincinnati area, that would be great for convenience but it isn't necessary as I am open to if you are further away, too. Pending chemistry, I will want to have you here in the near future for a weekend or week so we both see if we feel excellent around each other. A trial run of sorts. For age: I am open. I don't really have a preference there. LGBTQ+ friendly.

I'm not going to write a long essay about why Kabal Reno decks are the best decks out there. Anyone who has been playing Wild knows this already. The 3 decklists above me are the cool, sometimes greed stuffed lists that I enjoyed playing to Legend. They did quite well and they indeed proved the fact that Control Reno is still out there biting the metals ass. All in all, a couple more words to say:
Trophies for the best categories
Biggest boards,health gain and deck disruption goes to RENOLOCK
Best clears,Value and Highlander+Hero card combination goes to RENO PRIEST
Best Hand disruption and OTK possibility (Dawngrasp Hero power package) goes to RENO MAGE
Matchups
Any Aggro. Any board based deck. Most of the combo decks just cry and shit themselves upon seeing you. You are heavily favoured. Any Control deck that isn't Shudderwock Shaman
The decks, that may cause you the problems are the following ones: Shudderwock Shaman(Best Control jn Wild), Secret Make(fucking Chihuahua of Wild that has Hyena jaws trough years of Secret inbreeding), Quest Mage (aka the game of catching and destroying the Rommath), Big Priest(idiotic Combo deck with turn 3 Neptulon highrolly possibility, otherwise the deck is a lil bitch). Funnel Cake players either have a godlike hand, or get absolutely destroyed by disruption tools. No in between.
The decks that should be nerfed by Blizzard since we lose to them more, than we win:
Miracle Questline DH(Glide. Tony. Mana Burn. Those cards will absolutely wrenck your ass)
Seedlock: Unless you play against a player that has an IQ of a kitchen stove, they will play Quest reward smartfully and there's nothing you can do much). So Blizzard: Nerf Questlines to 10 mana pls since I lose to them.
Addressing the Skulking Geist in the room:
Replaceable for sure. But as long as I will see Chinese players that play Jade Druid, I will keep him in my ETC.
