#25 GPT-4o is insane in Off Topic
plumspringrollsEven research level stuff (let's say getting published in NeurIPS/ICLR/ICML etc.) doesn't need to have a ton of math depending on what you do.
Is this even true lol. For the conferences you mentioned almost all papers are primarily math.

a lot of ml papers are essentially math papers and the main contribution is their analysis, but a lot are also basically just "we use different linear algebra, make big, state of art result!!!" (and then take some math from a textbook / other papers and add it related work / background to make look cooler.)

edit: ninja'd by 20 minutes :-) agree w/ u bby

#27 why dont the youth like quake? in Off Topic

I think it would also help if these games had first-class support for "practice" game modes. Like the game hosting defrag servers and including a clone of kovaaks. It would be even better if there was a matchmaking system and you could play these practice modes while waiting :-/ would help with low player counts.
It's easier to meet people while messing around on jump servers vs dueling and it would give people more stuff to do while waiting for things to start and/or friends to sign on, which has always been a pretty painful part of afps for me :-(.

#9 why dont the youth like quake? in Off Topic
cayornediemossame issue as tekken everyone whos played since they were kids have so much legacy knowledge and skill it gatekeeps a huge amount of people that wanna try out but cant keep up and get discouraged by boomersthis pretty much nails it on the head, as a zoomer who wants to play afps games, getting curbstomped by some guy with parkinsons because he knows exactly where and when items will spawn and i dont is very frustrating

I can kinda agree, but keeping track of item spawn times honestly is just one of the more important skills for quake :-/ it's part of what makes it competitive / interesting. Otherwise, it would just be MGE with better movements, weapons, and maps lol. feels sort of like saying 6s is gatekept because you haven't played long enough to know how to track ubers or rocket jump.

#18 RGL: Reiterating AC Policies in TF2 General Discussion
brodymaybe i don’t know what im talking about but i think its a bit disingenuous to compare a free jumping service to a paid competitive tf2 service and act like they’re the same thing.

I too expect that the free, decade-old speedrun community server managed by volunteer jump mains to be better run than a paid competitive league.

#329 The Mouse/Mousepad Thread v2 in Hardware

recommendations for fk1 replacement? I've been using it for 10 years and it finally borked. I liked the fk1 so much I never looked at other mice, so I have no clue what the market is like... (I don't even know if zowie is still good and wireless mice have suddenly become usable...)
1. Something similar to the fk1, (I don't really care about ambidextrous, but I like the size and claw grip.)
2. maybe something ~slightly~ larger than fk1, I don't want to go any smaller.
3. I'd like to try wireless (unless wired is a lot cheaper)

Some things that caught my eye are
1. the new FK1-c. (cheap and I like fk1. (IDK why they don't have a wireless version?))
2. wireless ec2-c (not cheap, but wireless and I like zowie.)
3. vaxee xe (not cheap, but wireless and similar to fk1, made by some OG people from zowie?)
4. razer viper (very expensive and razer, but heard it was an fk clone)

I don't even game that often now, so I'd prefer something <$100, but a lot of the wireless mice seem more expensive than that... I'd def go a little higher for good wireless :-/

#34 Most influential/pioneering TF2 player in TF2 General Discussion
mustardoverlordtrying to remember the first team to run double gunboats soldier, that would've been big too (was it seagull and zbryan? not sure)

isn't it actually lansky who really started shift to the double gunboats meta? b4nny pocket scout was so heal heavy that lansky had to switch to using gunboats. His DPM kinda skyrocketed, so more people started doing it...
I know there's lots of people who tried it, so froyo wasn't literally the first, but my memory from being a spectator back then is literally "every top invite pocket running shotgun, lansky switched, then almost everyone started doing double gunboats."

#32 funniest tf2 dramas? in TF2 General Discussion
Brockwho was the demo that had an allt that he was cheating on, while being a notorious invite mge demo on badlands mid, he would piss everyone off and grape finally went into a server with him and stomped him

phrakture. He would also farm elo against his alt :-D This was revealed in the sp00ky mge alts eXposed threads

Not always drama threads, but stuff from rando_fan_69 and harbleu_HIVpositive are classic

I found an old gif of blaze hittin' the hair flip ^.^

#10 OMG 8 in The Dumpster

Oh, how I yearn for the lost days of tftv drama threads. When teams publicly died because of an invite player love-hexagon's untimely collapse. When people think they're in a relationship with an e-girl, only to find out they're dating another teammate. When a shirtless guy looked like lansky. When players would threaten to kill themselves (?) by running into a forest. The love, the heartbreak, the meltdowns, ... the drama.

#89 Announcing the GGL Advanced Playoffs in TF2 General Discussion

This has probably already been said, but i'm not reading everything.
I feel like if rgl is unable to make strong decision about the guy who was unbanned like 5 months ago and is still super sus.... then that's actually a really, really good reason to give permanent bans for first time cheating offenses (at least for adv/inv players)
like if it's not possible for them to follow recently-unbanned players, then they need to disallow those players from rejoining the scene. Especially considering the ac team apparently barely functions or is overloaded.

Rebitelike who thought grinding through all the ranks was a good idea lol

allowing a group of comp players to all play sniper against some random pubbers is truly a recipe for success :-)
