  1. Would it not be better the finish the ones that you  want the virtue for, and for the ones where you dont use that virtue get them close to finished so that when the change goes live you can finish them on mass to get the new virtue, assuming that it is any good.


  2. I would guess that i am like a lot of people that have used the same virtues for years, in fact I cant remember the last time I changed them.  These changes are not going to make me want to start using many different ones.  I will set it to max out the virtues that I use now, then after that just fill up any random one.

    I see it being even better for new players or new alts as you can just focus on the few that you actually want.

    It may also give me a reason to go back and complete older deeds as the rewards will be of use rather than just virtues that I have no need for.


  3. I tend to play it every few months when they release the latest story update.

    They are about to launch an update where the star ships level up with you.   So you can use the top tier ships, with some restrictions that get removed as you level up, from the get go.  They have events throughout the year to get the top tier ships for free, as well as the ones you can buy.

    You can also earn store currency from playing but it is a very slow process 


  4. With the final season a week away, who do you think will win, not who you want but who you think will win

    Also leave a post saying who you want to win

    I want Tyrion to will but dont think it will happen

    Also I want the show to end with an old Sam writing the book a Song of Ice and Fire and everything we have seen has been him telling the story

    Did a Turtle run, it seems like it just has more health and a bigger stacking bleed, but is practically still no issue for a pug to run. There was no real reason to have even closed this one to begin with if that's all they've done.

    On Evernight I took my level 120 Hunter in for a bit of fun, it took longer to get from the start of the instance to the Turtle than the fight.

    Also soloed the Watcher just to get the gear for cosmetic reasons as I had never kill him before.

    For the idiot American... what's the difference between a kilt and a skirt?

    First off never tell a Scotsman to his face that he is wearing a skirt, if he is in full highland dress he is carrying a skean dhu, which is a small knife you wear and keep in you sock.

    A kilt is a long piece of material, normally wool, that is wrapped around your waist and you wear a belt to keep it on.  Also it is normally pleated at the back.  A skirt is something that is tubular in shape and is not wrapped around.

     

    A kilt is also surprising comfortable to wear

    I gave the Watcher a shot solo as a bear. I can confirm you can easily get through to the final stage with just purple quest gear and at L58, however trying to take down those damn tentacles before they start healing was impossible for me. His roar (which so often caused half a wipe in the old days) did a whole 1 point of damage to me, or got resisted. His attacks were so weak that I even went AFK suddenly during the fight, only to come back maybe 10 minutes later and find I was still alive. It took intentional effort on my part to get him to kill me so I could leave the instance, and even then it was difficult to do. I then joined a group to 6-man it and it was a breeze, with no need for tactics, no wipes, not a single death, and barely a word said between us. Just over and done with in about 5, maybe 10 minutes, then on our separate ways.

    Tangentially, someone mentioned they would only do Watcher with a small group so there's less competition for the barter coin, but I can't see why they even want it in the first place. As I said, I'm in all purple quest gear, and the teal raid/instance gear in Moria is terrible in comparison. You take a huge hit in physical mastery and crit rating just for a little more morale. I've found it's better to just hit the phys mast and crit caps with purple armour pieces from quests and a few jewellery pieces to help that along (and it's pretty easy to do so), then simply stack finesse wherever you can. Even for my tank gear, I just stuck on a load of morale/vit pieces and ended up with 25k morale unbuffed, able to soak up damage like a sponge. Fuck, I even started getting some tactical mastery for a healing build just to see and ended up at the outgoing healing cap on that, too.

    If people ever needed evidence that the devs don't play the game and are completely out of touch with it, Moria's re-release is a clear example.

    They might want the gear for cosmetic reasons.  My Hunter is still using Moria gear as an outfit

    While they won't prevent tweets and what not, a fair number of courts in the US already have cameras inside, and it is possible for any person to go observe any trial in progress - which is why it's coming across as the US court system is generally more open than the UK one is.

    People can go an observe most cases here in the UK, there may be some cases that are not open to the public, normally due to national security.  You just can't film it

    And yet, Tommy Robinson was jailed in solitary confinement for the entire duration without trial and looked rather gaunt once he was released.  From my perspective, the entire thing was a human rights violation perpetrated by the UK government against one of their citizens.

    Something that I need to clear up about this, the courts are complete independent of the Government in the UK.  The UK Government has no say in the operation of the court.  Even the appointment of Judges is done by an independent body. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judicial_Appointments_Commission This case has nothing to do with the UK Government 

    Also he was not in solitary confinement the whole time.  He was in the Care & Separation Unit for the first 2 days while an assessment was made regarding his safety, his own lawyer said he feared other inmates would put a price on his head.   He was deemed a high risk prisoner but was put into the general population, with some restrictions, ie no working in the prison, or going to the gym with the other inmates.  https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/news/hull-east-yorkshire-news/tommy-robinson-i-lost-40lb-1857867

    I don't blame him, the law around your media court restrictions is bullshit.  A judge should never be able to declare a media blackout unless there's secret or top secret information being discussed in the trial.

    I wasn't aware of that, can you provide a source?

    Already knew that, as what Tommy has said is that it was done to protect his family.  I've seen enough weird stuff around what's going on that I'm wondering if there's the "official" narrative and then reality, as I'm seeing the exact same thing play out in the US (like the entire Russian Collusion thing which turns out to be a giant waste of taxpayer money because it's really the FBI having beef with Trump cause he fired their friend).

    That said, I'm on the outside looking in, and the entire thing just looks wrong from many angles.

    Source?

    I disagree about the law.  The blackout is only during the trial, and the press can report that the trial is ongoing.  What information they can say depends on each case, and also what is already in deemed as public knowledge.  This ensures that people get  a fair trial.  Also it can stop a lawyer trying to get a mistrial saying that the press have influenced the jury.

    Source for original contempt https://www.kentonline.co.uk/canterbury/news/far-right-activist-jailed-for-contempt-183736/

    Second source https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/edl-english-defence-league-leigh-mcmillan-jailed-paedophile-old-bailey-a8231231.html 

    It should also be noted that Tommy Robinson's case was also initially covered by a media blackout.  Journalists had to appeal to the court to cover the story.  Their reasoning being that his arrest was broadcast live on his Facebook account and that his assistants had reported his arrest meaning the information was now in the public domain, the judge agreed and lifted the restrictions - https://pressgazette.co.uk/independent-and-leeds-live-win-legal-challenge-to-report-edl-founder-tommy-robinsons-jailing-for-contempt-after-video-live-stream/4/


  11. The case was trial by jury.  However the judge had place reporting restrictions on the case, a common occurrence in the UK, to ensure that the defendants got a fair trail and that the case was not prejudge against them.  Also in this case is was part of multiple cases that were all linked and a mistrial at one could cause the others to collapse.

    Robinson know this and also know about the reporting restrictions but when ahead and broadcast anyway.

    He was already on a suspended sentence for another content of court charge for attempting to film defendants in Canterbury court in another rape case even though there were signs all over the building informing people it was illegal to film defendants in the court.

    Tommy Robinson, real name Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon, has been jailed at least 3 times including for assault, travelling under false documents and mortgage fraud.  This is likely the reason he doesn't use his real name.  The travelling under false documents was him trying to use someone else passport to get into the USA as he would not be allowed because of his conviction for assault.

    He likes to say he is fighting to protect children from pedophiles, but when one of his friends in the EDL was charged with being a pedophile he was nowhere to be seen.  He also refuse to answer question about this.   


  12. I can remember the last time they had a long outage, this time it wasnt their fault, people were praising them for all the hard work they were doing to get the game back online.  The issues was something to do with their ISP.  I posted on the forum thanking the staff at the ISP for getting the issue fix as Turbine, who still operated the game at that time, had posted that there was nothing they could do.

    Well next thing I know I get an infraction fro Sapience for trolling

    Also, that Travellers show sounds like Quantum Leap.

    The person they takeover was about to die, and in a way they still do.  Also as they are from the future all they know about the person they are taking over is based on public records and social media that has survived.  It is made by the same guy that did Stargate SG1 and stars Eric McCormack.  Plenty of other people making random appearances that were in Stargate


  14. Just wondered what shows people are watching

    Recently I have watched

    The Expanse - Amazon Prime - Really enjoyable Sci-Fi based on some book, season 3 just release with season 4 coming later in the year.

    Jack Ryan - Amazon Prime - A new show on an old character, was a enjoyable watch with some really good character development.

    Constantine - Amazon Prime - Fun DC comic, only half a season before being cancelled, but the character was well liked and is now on Legends of Tomorrow

    Travellers - Netflix - Interesting time travel show, where peoples consciousness are sent back in time to take over someones body before they die.  They have to pretend to be that person as well as being themselves in order to try and change the past to save the future.  Just been cancelled after 3 seasons but still worth a watch.

    Titans - Netflix - DC comic show focusing on Robin after he has left Batman, the violence is rather gory in places.  This is a lot darker that the Arrowverse DC shows.

    Star Trek Discovery - Netflix - Season 1 got better towards to end and season 2 has started off much better with a proper mystery

    Not yet watched but on my list

    Punisher season 2 - Netflix

    Russian Doll - Netflix
