#17224288 1K Slayer Assignments

Posted by Gintoki on 12 September 2018 - 12:43 PM

Nice one! It's a nice achievement, not too far off 120 slayer too :)

 

I gotta say, tetsu is pretty bad for slayer due to it being tank armour, offering no dps boost. Something far better would be torva or the anima core of zaros gear.

White farmers in 2018 did not murder and rape to obtain their land, they bought it with monetary investments or otherwise inherited it. They do not owe anything to anybody. How it was obtained back in 1948 was illegal, the farmers today had nothing to do with these illegal takeovers.

The only reason white farmers have their land is because of corrupt government legislation that reserved profitable areas of land to white people. You're shocked that the government wants to reverse the damage done to their native population due to this corruption?

Are any of us surprised that the native population would revolt? No sympathy from me tbh, and kudos to them for attempting to provide reparations to their people for the misuse of government that diminished their opportunities in life.

Apartheid happened in 1948, White African farmers today have nothing to do with it and earnt their land legally. It should be the government forming programs and helping natives whether it be through health care, psychologists and community programs, not just stealing land from people that did nothing wrong. Two wrongs don't make a right.

Also, the land in its current state was not profitable when white farmers originally got their hands on it. They had to employ complex irrigation systems and farming to make it so, which the natives were not capable of doing so. With the introduction of these systems more food was produced and more people were able to eat.

 

Thank the lord white jesus for delivering these white saviors upon the world.

 

I'm glad to see that we agree/

Posted by Gintoki on 15 August 2018 - 11:02 PM

I think I made my account in asking how to get past my dad's router filter on the website runescape, then started a war between the two of us where I started using proxies and logging onto his computer at night to change the filtered keyword to ruen ect, it got to the point where I actually installed keyloggers while he went off to the toilet and accepted it in his antivirus settings. Wasn't really that active but I have loved and will always love Runescape, I've played the game heavily (some might say too heavily) since I started in 2005, and I liked discussing it, I used to make these threads to discuss the game, to get peoples thoughts on how the game back then was ever so slowly getting easier and easier, and how what a horrible decision the EoC update was. I was for some reason promoted to a CL in questions the same day that I randomly checked the site, and I was introduced to a bunch of friendly people that were all just as passionate about the site and the game itself.

 

I may not have joined quite as early as everyone else, perhaps I just didn't have the foresight like others to join a community for this game outside of communities within the game itself. It will never be quite the same, I am still quite active on the likes of reddit and discord, but none of them quite have the support for long form discussion, if you attempt it, nobody can see your thread because the algorithm pushes your post down further and further in favour of newer and rising posts. It's a shame that we had to go down in the circumstances that we have currently, but I truly hope that we can all stick together in this new discord server and this community that has been built for years doesn't just fade into obscurity.

#17217739 Mental illness awareness in the clan world

Posted by Gintoki on 31 July 2018 - 9:49 PM

I don't think that it necessarily means mental illness, most of the people in this particular fight didn't actually go for over 100 hours straight, they took it in shifts, but even playing a computer game for that long in succession doesn't necessarily mean that they suffer from mental illness. You might be able to make the argument for autism, or that an autistic person is likely to participate in something like this, but it would be hard to characterise this across all participants.

 

That being said I think that as a community we should be looking after each other within this context, and maybe calling each other mentally ill a little less.

I don't subscribe to the notion that people are just evil, as we've seen from the famous Milgram experiment everyone is capable of some really disgusting acts, given the right circumstances and mental state. Some philosophers, particularly the chinese will tell you that everyone is born evil, that any good gesture is an act out of character for some personal gain, others tell you that we are all basically born good, but environmental factors shape us into people that can and do evil things. Depends on your perspective, don't think that there is any completely right one.

#17216537 Champions Cape

Posted by Gintoki on 24 July 2018 - 3:06 PM

Not familiar with what this is but congratz.

10 monsters in game have a 1/5000 drop rate of a champion scroll which you take to the champions guild to kill an upgraded version of that monster, if you kill all 10 you get this cape. Its just a waste of time for people that have nothing to do.

 

 

holy cow the time you must have invested.. Grats man keep it up!

Thanks ye it wasn't so bad, just something to afk on the main

#17216325 Manga review: Koe no Katachi

Posted by Gintoki on 22 July 2018 - 6:21 PM

 

Really enjoyed the movie on this one. Is it worth reading the manga for this, even if I've watched the movie? Heard the manga does more in depth in the backstory of a lot of the characters but is that the only/main difference between the two?

I haven't read/watched this but I'd still highly recommend reading the manga.. Not only to read more about the story in-depth (since studios cut away bits and pieces that you would otherwise never know about unless you read it) but if the author is still writing new chapters every month then you can keep reading passed where the anime stops.

 

Series has long since ended, you're right in manga generally being better but I don't think it's smart to comment on a series you haven't consumed in any form

I recently started listening to Joe Rogan's podcasts, he has an interesting perspective as he isn't an academic, but he does talk to academics as he takes us through a journey as he discusses interesting concepts with them for hours,

#17214259 Recent doozie

Posted by Gintoki on 12 July 2018 - 9:17 AM

If you're not aware, in implementing the ardougne knights integrity change, they introduced a bug where upon picking up coins after pking somebody, you go a max cash drop. I find this hilarious that such a massive error could occur, it doesn't really seem like they know what to do currently.

It was supposedly the new JMOD Bruno that implemented it, while he did make the error it does seem strange to not go over a trainee's new code.

And some instances on this happening

Anyway, pretty big instance of Jagex screwing up, figured it would be worth talking about it.

#17212486 Manga review: Koe no Katachi

Posted by Gintoki on 06 July 2018 - 2:55 AM

I really really loved koe no katachi, followed it from the one-shot all the way through. Great artwork, the mangaka actually worked with the japanese organisation of the deaf. No complaints really, other than it having ended too fast! Cool story of redemption, real kids with real outlooks and issues. The movie by kyoani was done really nicely too, definitely teared up in the opening moments of the film.

#17206822 Theatre of Blood

Posted by Gintoki on 06 June 2018 - 11:36 PM

Defender def not worth given that you lose it on death, tent whip would be better than rapier for at least some time due to its price and slash is better for pking anyway mostly. Justiciar not really worth since it will be worth too much, good for tanking but not worth the risk. Potions will be nice to save inventory space but nothing massive, staff can't be used in pvp afaik since its like a trident, scythe MAYBE but I don't think it has much stats on maul, could be interesting to see it being used on barrage clumps but we will see.
