  1. Yeah, I can do that because I built the dry dock I'm pretty sure. Installing now and I'll see if I can promote!
  2. I uninstalled it a while ago (but will 99% return at some point, so more of a temporary thing 😛 ) but not even sure I got the rank to promote. Can you check who you'd need?

    Lost Ark

    Such disappointment 😔 j/k, thanks for the write up, Nexi! And yes, it's been out in both Asia and Russia quite a while afaik, maybe more places? I mean if it's only $25 this seems like a solid buy. No idea how it will hold up endgame etc, but if it's a good, fun experience until max lvl and a bit beyond that's more than fair for the price and if it turns out to have longevity it's a bonus!

    Have not received an invite yet. Nexi promised me I would get one. Much disappointment.

    So, since this is now coming (Fall 2021), and I noticed some playing the alpha, how has it come along since a few years back? I'm guessing the alpha testers are under some sort of NDA, but anyone who has played the other versions (russian etc) lately? Or who's been keeping an eye on the community sentiment?

    The Division 2

    70gb download, holy moly. Oh well, downloading and will check it out. At 8€ it's worth a run through of the DLC at the very least

    The Division 2

    Anyone played this recently? Having just played Outriders, which unfortunately turned out to be a steaming pile of shit after a pretty nice campaign, I kinda got the itch for a looter shooter. I liked this at launch, but end game and builds was a mess. It's been quite a while, it had an expansion, so anyone have any first hand experience? Reading on the reddit it seems to be in a pretty nice spot. The expansion can be picked up very cheap, like 8€, so think I'll give it a whirl.
  10. Game Pass is just adding value, I'm wondering when Microsoft will rebrand it. Make it a subsidiary, ditch the "Xbox", partner with Sony and voilá, one subscription to rule them all. Could still make titles exclusive to either console even if it's the same subscription service, but PC master race gets to scoop it all up once ported
  11. What an AWESOME league that's currently running! First time I got a char past 95. First time I got three separete chars/builds to 95. First time I spent 40+ ex on a single build. First time I did 36/40 (and was rewarded with a Hideout) So many fun additions this league. Feel like I'm done now that I hit 36/40, but kinda already looking forward to next league If anyone is still playing, aiming for 36/40 or something, I have a fair bit of currency, maps etc to share. Just holler.
  12. What does this mean, and how has the community reacted? If I remember correctly the publisher was... Kakao? And now it will be Pearl Abyss self publishing? Does it have any implications for the game? Just curious, since I'm not playing (and my char got banned so nothing to lose )
  13. It looks cool, but I'll also wait til finished. Have a feeling I'll burn out if playing acts over and over "Oh, they added 5 new sidequests in A1, guess I need to replay that again!" etc. Looking forward to it
  14. They released info on the Helminth system (sacrificing frames, and adding abilities to frames): https://www.reddit.com/r/Warframe/comments/i8iesl/the_helminth_dev_workshop/ Seems it's not as bad as initially thought regarding the grind: "Every Warframe can be Subsumed to permanently provide 1 specific Ability to Helminth." So it's permanent. No need to sacrifice a frame every time you want to put that ability on another frame. There's a lot of "meh" abilities, as was expected, but there's also some very powerful ones. This is going to be both a lot of fun and a mess to balance. Buffs like Rhinos Roar, Valkyrs Warcry, Mirage Eclipse and Mesas Shooting Gallery will be awesome additions to a lot of frames (not sure if Roar is just flat out 100% always better than Shooting gallery so the Shooting Gallery might be moot). Aside from damage there's survivability: Novas Null Star for damage reduction, Blood Altar for regen, Wukongs Defy for armor/invuln. And alot of useable ones: Nidus Larva, Proteas Dispensary, to mention few. This is going to lead to alot of theorycrafting and a lot of customization options
  15. Having played this a bit now, both in premade parties (with Chimp and some other friends), solo and with pick up groups I must say it's very very enjoyable! It's a perfect game to play a session here a session there, adaptable to 1-4 people. I'd advice not taking it TOO seriously, aka don't go in with the mindset to grind gold (even though it's possible I think it'd get very boring trying to maximize efficiency) but just have fun. Lots of different stuff to do. Merchant runs, treasure hunting, skeleton killing, world events, pvp and all earning currency which can only be used for cosmetics (so no p2w is possible). The best thing though is just the feel of sailing around. It has the perfect amount of chores to do around the boat (trimming sails, angling sails, steering, keeping lookout etc), the distances never feel too long and it's just a joy to cruise around doing stuff. Considering a game pass is only 1€/1$ I highly recommend checking it out, preferably with a crew which makes it a lot more fun.
  16. It's in progress. Kind off. It needs another corridor added (which takes 12h) and then I can start the actual build of it (I hope). It's a HUGE room, so it requires a lot of space and the building interface is... well, almost none existant. But I'm working on it.
  17. When I last quit, couple weeks before Railjack, I think I was in the process of making a shipyard in the dojo. If I remember correctly I didn't build it, but I started building some corridors and had a location for it. But yeah, this was quite a while ago so can't really remember.
  18. Every year they PULL ME BACK IN with the god damn amazing Tennocon. Bit bummed with some of the design decisions they've made over the past year, arcanes and what not, but will start this up again a bit and see how deep it'll pull me. Here's this years Tennolive (their big live stream/reveal/"what will we be doing/releasing this year"):
  19. Yeah, didn't turn out super bad at least Ah, good point! Some sort of wrapped iron wire should do very well tbh. If I ever run into a malfunction with this I'll try that But does it have 120mm fans attached?! (❤️) ...
  20. I just got done mounting two 120mm chassi fans on my 980ti, but why on earth would I do that? Let me tell you! I've been considering a major upgrade for a while. Most of my rig is about 5 years old, and even though it's still holding up quite well (overclocked i7 6700k processor, 980ti gpu, 16gb ram, some okish mobo) I'm getting a serious ache for something new. Besides the ache in general I've never really splurged on a rig, and I'm in a financial position to do so. The one thing holding me back is the next generation of GPU's, which are likely to come before the end of the year. A new generation means either buying the old gens top card cheaper, or go for next gen. So I decided to wait. Albeit the rig in general holding up my 980ti has seen better days, no question about it. The version I bought has 3 fans, and the middle one had started wobbling and making weird noices about half a year ago. This is what is looks like. Or rather, used to look like til about 1 hour ago... So there was the odd noice, and sometimes I noticed the middle fan just stopped spinning, while the other two were chugging along. But up until last week it was holding up, so I didn't worry about it. Last week we had some work done in the apartment, and I had to move my computer. In that move the middle fan just popped off. I heard a rattling sound as I lift the computer up, to return it to the desk, and in the bottom of the chassi was the rogue fan who apparently decided enough was enough. He wasn't having any more of my shit. Ok, "not great" I thought, but who needs THREE fans anyway? Suuuurely 2 is enough? So I plugged it back in, and it actually seemed to work quite fine. Temps were a bit up, middle 85 celcius under heavy load, from about 80. That's not good temps, but the card doesn't throttle til like 90+, so I kept at it. That is until yesterday. I loaded up Sea of Thieves to try it and noticed my FPS fluctuating. Like it was at 80 for about 5 seconds, and then dipped to 40 for about the same time. Over and over. "That's odd", I thought to myself, meanwhile I noticed I could actually hear my own thought. What was that sudden silence? Wait, why isn't my computer making it's usual high pitched angry stop-pushing-me-you-shitty-nerd sound? Lo and behold, the two remaining fans on my GPU had after pondering for a few days decided to make a mutual cause with the rogue fan and had gone on a strike. "Not great at all". So there I was, couple months away from a planned upgrade, but out a GPU. Was I doomed to play shitty mobile games for a few months, like Papercuts, while waiting for the next gen GPU:s? Not likely. I scoured the internet looking for 2nd hand GPU:s, or even retail for something that was at least on the same level as the 980ti. I was quite surprised to find that the 980ti actually holds up quite well, 5 years after I bought it. I mean sure it's at best middle of the pack by todays standard, but a card of equal quality is still like 400€, a sum I was not willing to spend for a few months. Financially able or not, there's limits. So I wandered around the internet, looking for replacement fans or consolidation, but found neither. Most options were expensive or too complicated. But then I stumbled upon a video by Linus Tech Tips, called "Video card dead fan repair guide", and I was intrigued. He ripped the stock cooling of two graphic cards and replaced it with... chassi fans, which he like a madman ziptied to the GPU:s! "Now this is something I probably should not ever do, so let's DO IT!", was of course my reaction. Said, done and a visit to my local computer stor later I today gleefully ripped out my graphics card, manhandled the cooling. Only 2/4 screws were actually reachable, so there was quite a bit of violence and metal bending/breaking involved, as can be seen by the former fan holding thingy: Like sensei Linus had taught me I then ziptied two 120mm fans on to the card, smashed it back into the computer hooked it all up: I plugged it back in and... (Those of you hoping for a tragic ending are about to get very disappointed...) It worked! Amazingly! Previously without fans, just passive cooling, temps were about 60ish in windows, with the new fans 30! Booted up Sea of Thieves, and under heavy load temps are maxing out at about 73, so almost 10 degrees lower than it's ever been! So all in all I spent 23€ for the fans and a bunch of zip ties, and the result was better cooling than the card has ever seen AND it's less noice than it has ever produced! So, what's the morale of this story? Of course there is none, and I don't recommend ripping your GPU apart if you can help it, but I had to tell SOMEONE about this feat, and you lot were closest at hand! It's of course now going to be a matter of time before the zip ties melt or something goes horribly wrong, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it
  21. Played this as table top many years ago, wonder if the adaption will hold up!
  22. I got a XBOX pass, was 1$ for first month and it includes this, not a bad deal
