#190 My Story With Dashner: A Thread in TF2 General Discussion
taggReading about these things can make it seem like this behavior is easily recognizable and easy to not fall for. I assure you this is not the case in a real life situation.

I normally don't post in threads like these because I am more of a lurker than a participating member of this community, but I felt compelled to reply to this because there is a crucial lesson to be learnt from what you said. I wish all young adults would get this drilled into their skulls by their parents and teachers: it is not difficult to recognise manipulative or abusive behaviour, but it is incredibly difficult to force your brain to accept and act on what it's recognising instead of denying it. You don't want to stand out from the group, you don't want to create interpersonal tension, you don't want to admit that someone you have to interact with might be dangerous, you are afraid of being wrong and hurting someone's reputation, etcetera. And the worst part is that you can substitute "you" with "your friends" in that sentence, which means that you are all putting pressure on each other to deny what your brains are telling you. The alcohol that flows freely at gaming events - and let's not try to pretend like minors don't get drunk with the help of (young) adults at these events - isn't helping that already fragile ability to accept one's instincts. There is nothing wrong with being a bit more reserved than those around you, you don't have to feel like you're the social villain for using your brain and not just going along with the pack.

#32 Thoughts on new steam UI? in Off Topic

Some of the search and store integration is better, some sorting options are better.

Like every modern UI:
-The person who designed it is as dense as a neutron star; sadly the same cannot be said for the information density of their UI design
-Opacity and shading are awful gimmicks
-Giant pictures of a product taking up half the page are not "stylish"
-Runs like a quadriplegic
-Half of the page(and loading time) is taken up by tiled social media horse shite

#4 i65 Thank You Thread in TF2 General Discussion

I thought Adysky was an excellent caster. No awkward pauses, everything he said seemed to have a point to it(both during game and during delays+pre-game time filling), seemed to always know what he wanted to say before starting a sentence, good choice of words(especially for someone who isn't a native English speaker), kept tabs on what was going on in the moment and how the last fight happened really well. Kind of unbelievable he'd never casted before.

#101 FORMULA 1 MEGATHREAD in Off Topic

Rain never fails to deliver. Unusual for Hamilton to go off on a semi-wet track, that's usually where he shines most. Hülkenberg podium at last?

EDIT: Welp, cursed Hülkenberg there.

#563 TF2 benchmarks in TF2 General Discussion

I guess the closest thing to TF2 is CS:GO. From the few benchmarks I could find, it was pretty much exactly on par with Intel at all price points. They always test e-sports games at settings which cause massive dips in minimum FPS though, so it would be nice to get some benchmarks using a config that is more representative.

#11 Copenhagen Games Personal Feedback in LAN Discussion

Previously I felt that you would sometimes not know what to talk about and you would just start saying something to fill the airwaves, but you weren't really going anywhere with it and it would become kind of incoherent. I get that it's hard to keep talking when there are delays or when nothing is happening in the game. Not everyone can naturally poop out an hour of relevant, semi-interesting analysis bullshit about a game like Eepily and Nuze can. At this LAN I don't really recall any of those incoherent moments; in fact, I remember a few times where you pointed out something important that was happening off camera which might not have been immediately obvious, or when you pointed out some things about the match-up in pre-game which the audience might not be aware of.

I often feel that it's better for most casters to just look at the stream, because then you are merely focusing on what the audience can see. If you miss something that the observer also missed, the audience didn't see it anyway, so no-one will notice that you didn't point it out. It's much worse to miss something like a drop for 30 seconds because you were looking at your own free cam for example, because part of the audience will absolutely notice that. The only reason to use free cam as a caster is if you have very good game sense(played the game at a high level before becoming a caster) and you can help the observer select the right POV or make the audience aware of a crucial win condition before the fight or pick actually happens.

#5 Golden Caps in TF2 General Discussion

Reduce the round timer from 10 minutes to 5 minutes, new mid begins if no-one caps. Eventually someone will wipe on mid, and there will be double the opportunity for those "let's just try something because they don't have enough time to roll us back to our last anyway"-pushes. I think 5 minutes to make a successful last push is ample time, especially for a tiebreaker round; it's not supposed to be just as fair as normal play, it's supposed to break the tie.

#10 unreal tournament 2017 pre alpha in Other Games

I think moving UT4's dev team over to Fortnite was a courageous and inspired decision, made by a team of inventive and forward-thinking leaders who are motivated only by the alabaster allure of creating the most intriguing games for passionate players to enjoy and explore the endless strategic and tactical depths of.

#145 Insomnia63: Grand Finals in Events

Yeah, yeah, Sunshine not in ETF2L and all that. But the real question is how many more times do EU teams need to get pounded into the centre of the earth by Froyo on Viaduct before they will finally start banning it? They're starting to become like a girl who keeps getting back together with a guy who beats her... I JUST KNOW WE CAN MAKE IT WORK THIS TIME, I CAN FIX HIM!
