    Be Virtuous!

    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.

    Other MMOs?

    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

    The Emperor Returns

    The Leia scene and the Emperor laugh, yeah I cant wait
  8. 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.
  9. 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

    UK Perspective on UK Contempt of Court

    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

    UK Perspective on UK Contempt of Court

    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

    UK Perspective on UK Contempt of Court

    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/

    UK Perspective on UK Contempt of Court

    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.

    22 Hours

    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

    What are You Watching

    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

    The Elusive Producer's Letter

    The change to virtues sounds interesting. The passive bonus is interesting, I might even level ones that dont get used just for the extra little bonus.
  18. Activision has been grated a patent for a new matchmaking system that is designed to entice players to spend money on microtransactions. A quote from the patent "For example, in one implementation, the system may include a microtransaction engine that arranges matches to influence game-related purchases," according to the patent. "For instance, the microtransaction engine may match a more expert/marquee player with a junior player to encourage the junior player to make game-related purchases of items possessed/used by the marquee player. A junior player may wish to emulate the marquee player by obtaining weapons or other items used by the marquee player." http://www.rollingstone.com/glixel/news/how-activision-uses-matchmaking-tricks-to-sell-in-game-items-w509288 This is really taking the piss. Now they want to pair you up with people who have spend money, so you have a hard time competing so that you will go spend money. More quotes "In a particular example, the junior player may wish to become an expert sniper in a game (e.g., as determined from the player profile)," according to the patent. "The microtransaction engine may match the junior player with a player that is a highly skilled sniper in the game. In this manner, the junior player may be encouraged to make game-related purchases such as a rifle or other item used by the marquee player. " Doing so may enhance a level of enjoyment by the player for the game-related purchase, which may encourage future purchases," according to the patent. "For example, if the player purchased a particular weapon, the microtransaction engine may match the player in a gameplay session in which the particular weapon is highly effective, giving the player an impression that the particular weapon was a good purchase. This may encourage the player to make future purchases to achieve similar gameplay results." Social engineering to get people to spend money on microtransactions.

    What are You Watching

    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

    Legendary™ Servers

    Only some armour has essence slots. Basically the armour has your main stats, agility, might etc and then you can slot different essences to add extra stats. Essences come in different tiers and higher tiers can only be slotted into gear with a higher minimum level requirement. Tier 12 is the current top level and only goes in level 120 gear. The teal version for physical mastery gives something like 14k physical mastery. They are meant to allow you to build a character the way you want, but in reality people tent to look for the same ones. Also once you equip an essence you need a removal scroll to get them back, you cant even equip a new essence over one you have equipped.
