Really nice guy, sick DM and great movement. Pick him up if you want to win, me and him go way back.
this guy FUCKS.
EDIT: I would recommend downloading a monitoring program like MSI Afterburner to figure out which component is being taxed more during gameplay between your CPU or GPU. It's likely whichever has a higher percentage usage is your bottleneck and will be the part that needs upgrading. I suspect it may be the video card since you say these problems started happening after the MM update, forcing you to use DX9, although I may be wrong.
Quertwould you ship it outside of usa?
I'd ship it if the buyer would be willing to front the shipping charges.
Used for less than a month, side-graded to an AMD Fury X because of FreeSync monitor. Works perfectly, never overclocked. Asking for $430
Is there any way to make the control points on the bottom of the screen match the borderless theme you have for the time on the top?
Mr_Harvardso if i were to participate in active duty, what other types of jobs can i do other than being an actual soldier or combat medic? i know one of my cousins is an airplane engineer or something like that but i dont feel thats something id be good at/interested in either.
There are a plethora of other jobs besides combat arms. You could work in communications (25 series), intelligence (35 series), medical (68 series), the list goes on. The ASVAB is free, usually if you go to a recruiter's office they will make you take a practice one and then the real one at MEPS. Based on your score and availability of jobs, the recruiter will tell you which you qualify for. From there you will be sent to basic training (~10 wks), to AIT where you will learn your job, and then to your first duty station where you will do your job (hopefully).
Okay, so there is a lot of misinformation in this thread. Sorry for wall of text and bear in mind that my experiences are as an active duty soldier.
KarovaThis is a perfectly valid question. If you talk to someone who isn't a recruiter you can learn a lot of things about how to negotiate for the best salary, gain insight about their personal experiences and such. Tbh the recruiter would probably be one of the last people I talked to.
You can't really negotiate your salary, all jobs are based off the military pay scale which is based on rank. With that being said ,there are things you can do while you are waiting to get shipped to basic training to get promoted even before your contract starts. For example, I had 60 college credits when I shipped so I was an automatic E-3 instead of an E-1.
You are right about recruiters though, some are decent but a large portion of them will not fight for your best interests. If you want something, get it in writing/in your contract.
ProcreativeI come from a pretty mil-spec family and I can say that its is a very smart financial move and they will basically throw you through any school your motivated enough to get into. That being said wanting to go to school for free is not a good reason to enlist. You have to be very tolerant of bureaucracy and very willing to sacrifice larger than expected aspects of your life in terms of relationships/time/fun. Its more a personality type than anything else.
I'm not sure what you mean by 'throw you through any school you're motivated enough to get into.' If you're talking about college, it largely depends on your unit. If your unit is high speed and does a lot of training, then obviously you would be obligated to work and not go to class. If you're talking about occupational training, then yes, so long as you score high enough on your ASVAB you can get a contract for pretty much any enlisted job granted their are openings.
runescape_boy_420Don't fraud enlist is pretty good advice in your case because you've admitted to self harm on this forum. Your recruiter will tell you to not list any therapy you've had for this and to never admit it happened at meps, and that will get you all fine and dandy through the enlistment process since meps doesn't have the medical or insurance records you haven't provided. But once you've enlisted, it doesn't matter if you rat out your recruiter saying he told you to lie(lol never tell on your recruiter its always your fault "you forgot". Seriously.) you've already signed the contract saying that you assume all responsibility for what you've chosen to disclose. The background check for the security clearance will reveal that you've self harmed or have had therapy and you WILL be less than honorably discharged and they CAN revoke all benefits and every single dollar you've earned while in the military.
Although if you haven't had therapy and are all secretive and shit the only way they can disqualify you is if they see your scars or you start cutting yourself while in the service.
+the military is not for people predisposed to self harm but you prolly already know this bleh
Yeah, don't lie about past medical conditions or any type of criminal infractions. You either end up screwing yourself physically because your condition gets worse with the added stress of PT, or occupationally because your security clearance gets denied/revoked because they found out you shoplifted and failed to mention it in your enlistment documents. Contrary to popular belief, the military is pretty sensitive to mental health issues. Don't get me wrong, you will most definitely not get babied by drill sergeants in basic; their job is to break you and build you up again. But should you develop any type of mental disorder we have fine medics and mental health specialists/providers.
Hallowidk if i would serve in the army i would make sure i'm not from one of the most aids countries in the western world. i get that u wanna leave usa but i dont see why you gotta kill civilians to do it uknow
omnificwonderful representation of what being an army engineer is like
Yeah, cool story bros.
As a final note, I would not recommend staying on the enlisted side of things if you intend to make the military a career; for any motivated individual, it will become apparent enough that enlistment should be used as a stepping stone for either payment of college or transitioning to the officer/warrant officer side of the military (which requires a degree in most cases). For example, being an enlisted combat medic has it's perks, but generally my career progression would stagnate to simply training/supervising new combat medics after the rank of sergeant. However, should I decide to progress to officer, I could become a hospital/medical platoon administrator, physicians assistant, nurse, doctor, the list goes on. The military has programs for this type of career progression.
Or, you can take the experience you gained, finish your enlistment, and get out and go to college essentially for free armed with your new confidence and experience to share your skills on the civilian side.
Mr_HarvardI'm thinking about doing a career in the military after highschool (not sure if i want to actually be a soldier or do one of the technical jobs) and i know that if you do basic training or something they will pay for your college but i dont know much about what they offer? does any one know anything/have any experiences about this topic or know where i could go to ask?
Hi there, I've been in the US Army working as a combat medic for over 3 years now, currently deployed to Africa. I think I can answer any questions you might have.
All military branches offer the GI Bill as one of the main benefits for education. There are 2 different variants of the GI Bill, both of which will pay for 36 months of tuition and/or give you money for housing for that period of time.
One variant is the post 9/11 GI bill, which all service members automatically earn after serving for 36 months (and are discharged honorably). This variant is the best offer for traditional college goers, providing the most amount of tuition assistance (full coverage if in-state) and also paying a stipend for books and housing (that is calculated based on average housing rent in the area).
The other variant is the Montgomery GI bill, which is better for non-traditional colleges (certificate programs, vocational education, on-the-job training, etc). However, this variant is not free, and you will pay 1200 dollars total your first year (100 a month) in the military, should you decide to opt in this program. As far as I know, the MGIB does not offer a housing stipend, but is rather a lump sum paid to you a month that you can spend according to your needs.
Keep in mind that the GI bills are best used after you are finished with your service. You may only use one of these programs.
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to provide you any information based on my experiences.
edit: There are also other opportunities for furthering your higher education while you are still active in the service in the form of Tuition Assistance, a command-sponsored program that covers a certain amount of schooling. It's a good program to take advantage of, but is largely dependent on how much free time you can dedicate to school (you may be interrupted by deployments or field exercises, or just because you are working late and can't make it to class). Online classes are very popular in the military as well.
Green, hard-shelled reptile that makes splashy sounds
I was thoroughly convinced this was narrated by tagg the entire time and now I can't unhear it.
Okay, so forgoing all of this bullshit drama crap, I'm going to go ahead and point out that I've played on a team with cbunz somewhat regularly (3-4 scrims/week, various lobbies) for nearly 2 months now. She was our medic, scrim scheduler, and roster manager. With that being said, alot of stress was placed on her from these 3 roles, especially for how *relatively* new she is to the competitive scene. I think anyone can draw their own conclusions as to cbunz's ambition for the game based on that unbiased, objective information.
Playing on her team, she was always vocal and always eager to review a game with the rest of the team after playing. Yes, she is newer to the game than most, and yes, she can get frustrated sometimes, but she has a very good ability to learn quickly and more importantly, the drive to learn. I believe that with time and experience she can be a great medic. At the end of the day, I'd much rather have a player on my team that may lack experience but has an affinity and drive to learn than a decent player that is stuck in their ways and unapproachable.
Try her out.
How do I make the low health cross not flash/blink when active? I'd like for it to just stay a solid red.

At about 22 seconds, that's what I'd like. Thanks!
