    The Rage Corner 2: Electric Boogaloo

    China bad. soo many ways bad. but this Blizzard thing, whilst highlighting more dimensions of the bad, is also entertaining. unironically using the Jim vlog above... especially for the Trump bashing, as it is likely, the very factor that will keep it up and accessible (just as is the 24/7 bashing news cycle that drones on unabated) when it would otherwise be immediately removed by bloodsucking harpy goblins the likes of: it is interesting just how easily bent out of shape, and over what, to the point of banning, a Dictatorship can get... but truly it is past time to slay the Red Dragon! fuck China! TAIWAN #1!!!
  3. best summary HERE! Viktor Vekselberg ⬇️ Renova Group ⬇️ Columbus Nova ⬇️ ⬇️ A Daybreak representative has confirmed to Gamasutra that it has laid off multiple employees in a company "realignment." The statement reads as follows: "We are taking steps to improve our business and to support our long-term vision for the existing franchises and development of new games. This will include a realignment of the company into separate franchise teams, which will allow us to highlight their expertise, better showcase the games they work on, and ultimately provide tailored experiences for our players. Unfortunately, some employees were impacted by this effort, and we’re doing what we can to support them during this challenging time." 117 trademark filings for Daybreak Games including a few new studio names at link below: https://www.trademarkia.com/company-daybreak-game-company-llc-4289601-page-1-2
  4. realignment of the company into separate franchise teams... https://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/352106/Report_Daybreak_Games_lays_off_multiple_employees.php seen chatter of folk speculating things are being parceled up separately for sale, though how that works with IP's transferring (in most cases incompletely) i can't see that being too successful TBH. smells more like fudging the books in hopes of further obfuscating the money trail. that and all the backbone issues this will cause as they decentralize their company services... 2020 is gonna get nasty. the allusion to new games... l o o o o l. the new game will be a Gacha Game called "When Pigs Fly" available on all platforms. 🤪
  5. welp that didn't take very long... https://massivelyop.com/2019/10/11/it-looks-like-daybreaks-been-hit-with-yet-another-round-of-layoffs/ according to the employee tweets, there is likely more to come... SOON™ this coincidentally has nothing to do with Olive Yew (& others)... https://twitter.com/OliveYewX3/status/1179854417295745024 so Planetside Arena was Daybreaks last hurrah... what possible plans could they have beyond this? with 1.5 - 2 billion in Columbus Nova assets frozen & Patrick Soon-Shiongs' NantTech investment money all but drying up... what does 2020 actually have in store for Daybreak Games? ima go with a big fat goose egg. or a #Daybreak Games is over party.

    and this is actually worse. incapable of a measured and proportionate response. typical. that said on this transfer thing, i actually do think it was a fairly high (30 - 40%) of the remaining player-base who are active on all regional servers with multiple dozens of character slots shuffling the fruits of 10 - 20 hours daily addiction and other elicit exploits.

    tis amazing that for all the server transfer feature offers, it also included moving items without also shifting a character. i guess the thinking is you could retry to claim items that may have failed to move with the character in the first attempt. but the unlimited moves without actual character transfer... kinda boggles how open the design remained for so long. even more amazing when you consider accounting for all these item transfers for singular people with multiple characters across multiple servers... how many actual individual players are active? how many hours per day is someone spending playing multiple capped characters across several servers? etc. cause if it was just a handful of people, they could easily take punitive action against a couple dozen individuals, but instead they shit the whole thing down. so the percentage of players doing this had to be significant enough to pull the feature entirely. LOTRO's population is small enough as it is, and factor in that a significant portion of that population is artificial (boosted by singular individuals creating multiple signals on multiple servers)... and how this activity seems on the face to be skirting generating income for SSG... game is in a very sad place.

    potentially being the key here... if it wasn't potential, proper procedure and filings would have been followed to the letter. but on that the Dems have broken protocol. hence the dares from Republicans to put it to a vote and bring in actual formal procedure. but this whole episode is, by design... just like all previous manufactured events... aimed at swaying opinion rather than formal proceedings. EX: one whistle-blower didn't seem to work... as per Brennans' twitter request" https://twitter.com/JohnBrennan/status/1177917399254872064 a second whistle-blower is being produced. watch it have the exact same effect. though it does wet the appetite of the socialist left, you included. enjoy it now, i will save the savor for when it too crashes and burns. oh but they did. the Steele Dossier. and when you look at the trail that leads up to its creation... they have absolutely done just that.

    if you think i am aiming for normal, you have missed the plot. this isn't normal. it may never be normal again. that pleases me. also if you think i am defending... again, no. but then i think it was Trump who gave Rachel Maddow that tax return and also that before he grabbed them by the pussy... he took her shopping for furniture, but she, "SHUT HIM DOWN..." he also made fun of a waffling disabled reporter. a flawed man who just happens to provide a decent train-wreck. until a better option presents itself, i'll continue to support. i provided a link to the full transcripts you daft cunt.

    "I will say we do a lot for the Ukraine. We spend a lot of effort and a lot of time. A lot more than the European Countries are doing and they should be helping you more than they are. Germany does almost nothing for you... ... the United States has been very good to the Ukraine. i wouldn't say that its reciprocal necessarily because things are happening that are not good but the United States has been very very good to the Ukraine." "I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike... I guess you have one of your wealthy people... the server, they say the Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think your surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with the Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it is very important that you do it if that's possible." "... I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that's really unfair. A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved. Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the Mayor of New York City, a great mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what's happening and he is a very capable guy... ...There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you could look into it... It sounds horrible to me." "... I will have Mr. Giuliani give you a call and I am also going to have Attorney General Barr call and we will get to the bottom of it. I am sure you will figure it out. I heard the prosecutor was treated very badly and he was a very fair prosecutor so good luck with everything..."

The President has been crystal clear no quid pro quo's of any kind. The President is trying to evaluate whether Ukraine is going to adopt the transparency and reforms that President Zelensky promised during his campaign..." SOURCE: https://foreignaffairs.house.gov/_cache/files/a/4/a4a91fab-99cd-4eb9-9c6c-ec1c586494b9/621801458E982E9903839ABC7404A917.chairmen-letter-on-state-departmnent-texts-10-03-19.pdf ... no aid linked to an investigation mentioned. that bit comes from Politico. the withholding aid bit, not the investigation link: https://www.politico.com/story/2019/08/28/trump-ukraine-military-aid-russia-1689531 so unless you are aware of other texts than these... no quid pro quo's of any kind. pity those government organizations (and the media of that time) weren't as galvanized for John Kerry & Joe Biden. times change. as for Trump; I hope he continues unconventional approaches including honey pots and canary traps of which this whole episode has the whiff of. cause when "Teflon Don" wins in 2020... they'll still say be calling him an idiot and the walls are closing in, as they scream at the sky. also investigation is only the search for proof/evidence. in this case however, it is more like an non stop fishing expedition hoping something will finally pay off. maybe this will be the time it works... 👌

    GW2 might be the most reasonable model in the MMO genre. also the entire base game is FTP. that would be like LOTRO making all of Shadows of Angmar FTP. but the marketing at LOTRO has always been "On Lunch" IMO.

    what specifically would constitute proof? where exactly is the goalpost, or is it better to remain undefined in case shifting is required... no that is not the argument i am making. so don't attempt to introduce a straw man of your making. oh i'd like to see Ivanka & Jared vigorously ousted. campaigning is one thing, neither belong in the White House, however. yet they both are, after considerable scrutiny... even. a HUGE mistake, IMO. but when you say crimes, (plural) is it US code 3110 that you are referencing? care to list the actual crimes so i know what your are specifically referencing? one must be cautious when naming the ... cross partisan issue.
