2023.06.06 17:47 rEEfman_SK Lore bits from The Lost and the Damned [excerpt]

So as a preparation for The End and the Death: Volume II, I decided to re-read the Siege of Terra series and I totally forgot how amazing is this conversation between Malcador, Valdor, Sanguinius, Khan and Dorn. I think it contains point of view answers to some of the lore questions - some quite major - that regularly pop up in this subreddit. Excerpts from The Lost and the Damned by Guy Haley.
On the size of Horus's army.
‘They are almost incalculable in size. There are representatives from every Traitor Legion within the Solar System. He commands thousands of regiments of traitor soldiery, hundreds of Knightly
houses, dozens of Titan Legios, which though they were diminished at Beta-Garmon,’ he indicated Sanguinius, ‘still outnumber our own. Now the innersystem blockade has been swept aside, the unified forces of the Dark Mechanicum are heading for Terra from Mars. We are beset on all sides.’
On the size of incoming Guilliman's army.
‘Horus brought most of his armies here. Roboute’s forces are formidable. When I left him, he was busy sending orders that Ultramar and all the Ultima Segmentum be emptied of men. More forces flock to him on the way, including elements of Vulkan’s and Corax’s Legions we thought lost. When he arrives, it will be at the head of a force the near match of Horus’ said Sanguinius.
Malcador explains why the Primarchs - except one - were not briefed about Warp. Which one was it? The book does not say. I think it was either Lion, Russ or Corvus.
‘My boy,’ said Malcador wearily, ‘you cannot understand because matters of the spirit were not given you to understand by your father. I could explain them at length and you most of all would never comprehend. Do you not think if it were possible that I or your father could have explained them already, that you would have been told of the threat in the warp from the very beginning?’
‘I deeply regret that it was not done,’said Dorn.
‘The results would have been disastrous, believe me,’said Malcador.
‘Not telling us was arguably worse,’said Dorn.
‘Was it?’ said Malcador softly. ‘Very well. Let us take you, Dorn. You were made to command the material realm. Nothing in this world is beyond your grasp. But understanding of the warp would have eluded you. Being a man who desires mastery of all things, you would have been drawn to study it, and in doing so, you would have fallen. You are resistant to the dangers in the dark, but no one is immune.’ He paused. ‘Only one of you had the mettle to resist the whispers of the gods at the start. He was told.’
‘Who the Emperor told is not important. Even now it is better that you do not know,’ said Malcador. ‘To name the powers in the empyrean is to invite their attention. The knowledge alone is corrupting – that is all you need to know now, and far more than you needed to know then.’
Seems like Malcador knew Sanguinius will die in Siege of Terra.
‘You must perform your part. I shall perform mine when the time comes.’ As one of the few men in all existence who could look into a primarch’s eye without flinching, Malcador met the gaze of each of the three loyal sons in turn. ‘All of you have your parts to play in this struggle.’ He smiled sadly at Sanguinius, and the Angel looked aside.
The Phalanx was not a part of Siege of Terra, because Dorn wanted to use it for the evacuation of the Emperor.
‘If Terra falls, the Emperor must survive,’ said Dorn. ‘We all agree that the Emperor, not Terra, is Horus’ objective. The Phalanx represents our best chance of effecting His escape. Only my flagship has any chance of fighting in and out
of the system to carry Him away. In all other cases, the perimeter ships will remain out of engagement range until Roboute approaches,’ said Dorn.
Dorn admits that Alpharius was not entirely pro-Horus. This ties to my theory that Alpharius was running the Orpheus protocol for a long time -\_alpha\_legion\_theory\_spoilers/ .
‘Could Mortarion have had a change of heart?’ wondered Sanguinius aloud. ‘I am certain few of our brothers expected to find themselves allied with daemons. Mortarion least of all – you know how much he hates the warp.’
Dorn’s eyes narrowed. He thought momentarily of Alpharius. When the twentieth primarch infiltrated the Solar System, he had spoken with Dorn, and what he said could have been interpreted as contrition. Dorn had not listened, and had slain Alpharius at Pluto, a fact he still kept from his brothers.
The Primarchs did not know that Vulkan is perpetual. Kurze has definitely found out the wrong way - hammertime.
A sly look crept across Malcador’s face.
‘Vulkan lives,’ he said.
The shock visible on Sanguinius, Dorn and the Khan’s faces gratified the Sigillite, and he smiled like a conjuror pleased with the effects of a trick.
‘I’m sorry?’ said Dorn.
‘What do you mean, Malcador?’ said Sanguinius. ‘I saw him dead upon Macragge. I witnessed his corpse borne away by his sons myself!’
‘Vulkan’s corpse is not like other corpses. The Salamanders took him back to Nocturne, where they were successful in restoring him to life. Vulkan has… certain abilities, as you all do,’ said Malcador.
The Emperor was apparently close to completiting the Webway gate on Terra.
‘Disaster struck when He was close to completion. Your brother Magnus, my lords, was loyal, but arrogant. In his hubris, he used sorcery to warn the Emperor of Horus’ treachery. The sorcery he employed, that he had been forbidden from, destroyed the wards around the bridge, and all the foes of men came rushing in.’
‘That is where Valdor’s men were for so long when you returned, my brothers,’ Dorn said to Jaghatai and Sanguinius.
This one is very hotly debated topic in this subreddit, but Malcador clearly says (could be lying though) that Horus pushed Russ to kill Magnus.
‘So Russ was sent to punish Magnus without reason,’said Sanguinius.
‘Not without reason,’ said Malcador. ‘But the chastisement was never meant to be so harsh. We determined to despatch the Wolf King to bring Magnus back to Terra for censure for defying the judgement of the Council of Nikaea. Horus manipulated the order.’
In 40k the Emperor cannot leave the Golden Throne or be externally killed, because he is holding the warpgate on Terra closed.
‘Let me explain, Constantin,’ Malcador said. He paused to gather his thoughts before he went on. ‘What none of you know is that your father is trapped upon the device He created to keep the bridge to the webway open. It was intended to be a temporary measure, until the Mechanicum could stabilise the conduit. But all their work was destroyed. If He leaves the Throne now, the doors into the warp will open, and Terra will drown under a tide of Neverborn and all their infinite malice.’

2023.06.06 17:47 Flashy-Biscotti2874 My dog runs away -and other obedience problems

Our one year-old mix breed(most probably a hunting breed mix) dog ran away two times. One time because I let her off-leash when I should not have (she was playing with her friends, saw a black cat afar and chased it outside our residential borders), this time my mum accidentally left the house door open. Thankfully I found her and could bring back home after chasing around and tricking her to come near me. She has a habit of running away when I call her name. Her recall is better at home even though not perfect. She has been with us since two months old and I thought I managed to teach her some stuff like sit, stay, lie down. But now I see that none of them are working in real life situations. She also has a resource guarding attitude around some specific foods and she bit my mom once seriously. How do I repair my relationship with my dog and go back to basics? Is it possible to fix these problems? I know it has been a complicated question but I m really struggling on where to start to turn things around. It is my first time owning a dog and any suggestions/similar stories I would appreciate so much.

2023.06.06 17:46 ChubbyBulbasaur How to encourage selecting the best players during Immortal Draft?

Let me preface this by saying I am nowhere near immortal, but I like watching DOTA streams. So when I read the patch notes about Immortal Draft, I was excited. Maybe we’d finally see whether it’s better to pick the Rank 60 support or the Rank 20 carry in a game where there’s mostly core players? Then drafting players might become a legitimate skill in pub games.
But, alas no. The high ranked streamers I watch are often chosen as the captain, proceed to pick the lowest MMR players available, and then complain all game long that their teammates are terrible.
Like what did you expect when you’re rank 2 and deliberately pick rank 500s instead of the rank 50 player that was available?
Now, we all know why they do this: You lose less MMR when you lose and you gain more MMR when you win. But man does it feel stupid.
That said, I’d like to discuss ways to encourage captains to actually pick the “best” players available first.
Here’s a couple potential suggestions: 1. Calculate the rating difference based on the highest MMR player available at the time you picked. So if there was a 10k player available and you picked the 6k player, that’s on you. 2. Add a flat 10 MMR to the amount gained or lost when you’re captain. I goes a bit against Glicko, but it’d promote actually thinking during the player picking phase. 3. Make the variation in MMR gained or lost per game significantly smaller. No more +40/-10. Maybe have a max of +30/-20 instead.
For the sake of this discussion I’d like to focus on strict solo queue, though I understand that parties are another complicating factor.

2023.06.06 17:46 Fair_Present_140 Space AU Idea

Alright, so the main point in favor of this idea, right off the bat, is that Hunter, Gus, and Ms. Noceda would have the times of their lives if a spacecraft landed in the backyard.
So things would start off with a spacecraft landing in the backyard.
The second point was how successful Philip/Belos was in nearly exterminating an entire society entirely by himself. If this is the effect that a single human being could have upon a foreign world, what would happen when all of humankind took to the stars? Most of the population has transcended from Philip's conservative viewpoints, but there are still plenty that hold tightly onto them. Even if these views become extremely rare as humanity advances toward spaceflight, there would still be thousands or millions of humans that would hold them, and what could such a number of people accomplish if they followed the same path as Philip? Any alien life we encountered would be subject to the threat of extermination by a large number of radical human supremacists.
To go further, what if it wasn't a minority of the population?
In an alternate reality (which would have both an alternate Boiling Isles and an alternate Earth), Caleb and Philip Wittebane never found the portal to the Boiling Isles and remained in Gravesfield. As he grew into adulthood in the human realm, Philip's religious fanaticism developed just as strongly, and he amassed a religious following on Earth resulting in the formation of the highly successful Holy Revivalist Church, and instituted a series of crusades against Earth-based witchcraft that would have put Salem to shame. Having never met Evelyn, Caleb is indoctrinated by his brother and serves as his right-hand man. The Holy Revivalist Church becomes prevalent throughout the United States, and Philip, having acquired total power over Gravesfield, pronounces himself the first Governor-Priest. Members of the church are sworn to chastity, but Philip makes an exception for any member of the Wittebane family, beginning a chain of descendants that maintains control of the church for centuries.
By the modern era, the Holy Revivalist Church has effectively converted the United States into a conservative theology. The nation has devolved into small shut-in agrarian communes, which all pay a heavy tax to the church to maintain the church-controlled military. All scientific matters are handled directly by church officials, to prevent the public from challenging the role of the Creator, and the immense funding they are receiving have allowed them to develop advanced technologies that are mostly withheld from the public. Any behavior that deviates from they church-approved way is associated with witchcraft and cause for immediate imprisonment.
The current rulers of the church are Governor-Priests Eldred and Darwin Wittebane. While they are on a campaign with a hundred heavily-armed soldiers to storm a resistance compound, the portal to the Boiling Isles finally opens up, and they are transported in, armored vehicles and all. The alternate Luz, who was a resistance soldier, falls into the same portal. (The alternate Boiling Isles will be slightly different - the Collector never visited it, as the Archivists would exist between all the multiverses at once and could never be in two at the same time, so the Titan there died a natural death, laying down with its hands/paws folded over its chest, and plenty of offspring for King to socialize with. Most people won't be the same because the Titan's body is composed differently and would therefore fertilize different life, but the Blights would have to be around because some things are meant to be. There would be a new set of glyphs too, with some of the previous ones mixed in)
Eldred and Darwin take a note from Philip's would-be book and begin convincing the witches that they are gods through displays of their technological abilities. Due to their technological advantage, they are not so concerned with the threat that witches pose to humankind, but instead take more of a colonizer approach, attempting to see how the Boiling Isles can be harvested to supply the theological United States. Titan blood is the new oil. Basilisks, unfortunately, would be captured and studied for their camouflage properties. Gallbladders might even be synthesized for Eldred and Darwin to enable them to perform magic without glyphs. The only thing they cannot do is create a portal back to the human realm for reinforcements, although they are working on doing so.
Now, where's the spaceflight?
Alternate Luz is watching what's going on, and The Collector happens to discover this world as well. They recognize her from the normal world and decide to help. The Wittebane's complex is well-guarded by sci-fi weaponry, making an invasion impossible, and Alternate Luz has not had the time to recruit an army. Instead, being more militant than the normal Luz due to her background, Alternate Luz directs The Collector to steal a spacecraft from the Holy Revivalist Church's military so she can use it to destroy the compound. The Collector does so (through Archivist magic) but decides that Alternate Luz could really use the backup of the main squad, so the spacecraft is sent through an Archivist Portal to normal Earth to collect everyone first.
All sorts of things could happen from here.
This was the brainchild of excessive sugar intake and the hour of 2:00 a.m.

Now free, his unique form of justice, born out of rage, is challenged by modern-day heroes who form the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher, and Cyclone.
Production companies : Warner Bros. Pictures.
At San Diego Comic-Con in July, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had other people raising eyebrows when he said that his long-awaited superhero debut in Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse would be the beginning of “a new era” for the DC Extended Universe naturally followed: What did he mean? And what would that kind of reset mean for the remainder of DCEU's roster, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the rest of the Justice League, Suicide Squad, Shazam and so on.As
Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse neared theaters, though, Johnson clarified that statement in a recent sit-down with Yahoo Entertainment (watch above).
“I feel like this is our opportunity now to expand the DC Universe and what we have in Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which I think is really cool just as a fan, is we introduce five new superheroes to the world,” Johnson tells us. Aldis Hodge's Hawkman, Noah Centineo's Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell's Cyclone and Pierce Brosnan's Doctor Fate, who together comprise the Justice Society.) “One anti-hero.” (That would be DJ's Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.)
“And what an opportunity. The Justice Society pre-dated the Justice League. So opportunity, expand out the universe, in my mind… all these characters interact. That's why you see in Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, we acknowledge everyone: Batman , Superman , Wonder Woman, Flash, we acknowledge everybody.There's also some Easter eggs in there, too.So that's what I meant by the resetting. Maybe resetting' wasn't a good term.only
one can claim to be the most powerful superhero .And Johnson, when gently pressed, says it's his indestructible, 5,000-year-old Kahndaqi warrior also known as Teth-Adam, that is the most powerful superhero in any universe, DC, Marvel or otherwise
"By the way, it's not hyperbole because we made the movie."And we made him this powerful.
There's nothing so wrong with “Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” that it should be avoided, but nothing—besides the appealing presence of Dwayne Johnson—that makes it worth rushing out to see. spectacles that have more or less taken over studio filmmaking, but it accumulates the genre's—and the business's—bad habits into a single two- hour-plus package, and only hints at the format's occasional pleasures. “Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” feels like a place-filler for a movie that's remaining to be made, but, in its bare and shrugged-off sufficiency, it does one positive thing that, if nothing else, at least accounts for its success: for all the churning action and elaborately jerry-rigged plot, there's little to distract from the movie's pedestal-like display of Johnson, its real-life superhero.
It's no less numbing to find material meant for children retconned for adults—and, in the process, for most of the naïve delight to be leached out, and for any serious concerns to be shoehorned in and then waved away with dazzle and noise. Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” offers a moral realm that draws no lines, a personal one of simplistic stakes, a political one that suggests any interpretation, an audiovisual one that rehashes long-familiar tropes and repackages overused devices for a commercial experiment that might as well wear its import as its title. When I was in Paris in 1983, Jerry Lewis—yes, they really did love him there—had a new movie in theaters. You're Crazy, Jerry."Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse " could be retitled 'You're a Superhero, Dwayne'—it's the marketing team's PowerPoint presentation extended to feature length.
In addition to being Johnson's DC Universe debut, “Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” is also notable for marking the return of Henry Cavill's Superman. The cameo is likely to set up future showdowns between the two characters, but Hodge was completely unaware of it until he saw the film.
“They kept that all the way under wraps, and I didn't know until maybe a day or two before the premiere,” he recently said Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse FULLMOVIE ONLINE
Is Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Available On Hulu?Viewers are saying that they want to view the new TV show Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.
Is Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Fullmovie Online For Free on Disney Plus?
Unfortunately, Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is not currently available to stream on Disney Plus and it's not expected that the film will release on Disney Plus until late December at the absolute earliest.
While Disney eventually releases its various studios' films on Disney Plus for subscribers to watch via its streaming platform, most major releases don't arrive on Disney Plus until at least 45-60 days after the film's theatrical release.
Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has finally ended the box office blues. It will be a close call, but based on the estimates, the year's biggest opener remains Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with its $187 million start. Nonetheless, Wakanda Forever's $180 million opening is a huge one, being the biggest ever for the month of November (beating the $158 million of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), the second biggest of the year, and the 13th biggest of all time (though it could go up or down a few slots once the actuals come out). It led an overall weekend box office of $208 million, which is the fourth biggest of the year and the biggest by a long shot of the past four months, with no other weekend since July 8 -10 even going above $133 million.
This isn't the $202 million opening that we saw from Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in February 2018, nor should we expect the amazing legs that were able to get that film to an astonishing $700 million. With that said, expect it to perform strong throughout the holiday season, likely repeating the five-weekend number-one streak that the first film had, and it shouldn't have any trouble becoming the second highest grossing film of the year so far, beating the $411 million cume of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The audience response is strong, with the A CinemaScore falling below the first film's A+ but bouncing back from the B+'s earned by Doctor Strange 2 and Thor: Love and Thunder, which ranked among the worst for the MCU. improvement over the recent franchise installations,with the aforementioned films coming in at 74% and 64% respectively on Rotten Tomatoes, both at the lower end for Marvel films, while Wakanda Forever's 84% ​​​is closer to franchise norms, though not meeting the high bar set by the first Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse's 96%.
The sequel opened to $150 million internationally, which Disney reports is 4% ahead of the first film when comparing like for likes at current exchange rates. Overall, the global cume comes to $330 million. Can it become the year's third film to make it past $1 billion worldwide despite China and Russia, which made up around $124 million of the first film's $682 million international box office, being out of play? It may be tough, but it's not impossible. Legging out past $500 million is plausible on the domestic front (that would be a multiplier of at least 2.7), and another $500 million abroad would be a drop of around $58 million from the original after excluding the two MIA markets. It'd be another story if audiences didn't love the film,but the positive reception suggests that Wakanda Forever will outperform the legs on this year's earlier MCU titles (Multiverse of Madness and Love and Thunder had multipliers of 2.2 and 2.3 respectively).
As for the rest of the box office, there's little to get excited about, with nothing else grossing above $10 million as Hollywood shied away from releasing anything significant not just this weekend but also over the previous two weekends. When Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse opened in 2018, there was no counterprogramming that opened the same weekend, but Peter Rabbit and Fifty Shades Freed were in their second weekends and took second and third with $17.5 million and $17.3 million respectively. That weekend had an overall cume of $287 million compared to $208 million this weekend Take away the $22 million gap between the two Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse films and there's still a $57 million gap between the two weekends. The difference may not feel that large when a mega blockbuster is propping up the grosses,but the contrast is harsher when the mid-level films are the entire box office as we saw in recent months.
Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which is the biggest grosser of the rough post-summer, pre-Wakanda Forever season, came in second with just $8.6 million. Despite the blockbuster competition that arrived in its fourth weekend, the numbers didn't totally collapse, dropping 53 % for a cume of $151 million. Worldwide it is at $352 million, which isn't a great cume as the grosses start to wind down considering its $200 million budget. Still, it's the biggest of any film since Thor: Love and Thunder, though Wakanda Forever will overtake it any day now.
Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse came in third place in its fourth weekend, down 29% with $6.1 million, emerging as one of the season's most durable grossers and one of the year's few bright spots when it comes to films for adults. The domestic cume is $56.5 million Fourth place went to Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, which had a negligible drop of 5% for a $3.2 million sixth weekend and $40.8 million cume., in fact )
, which isn't surprising considering it's the only family film on the market, and it's close to grossing four times its $11.4 million opening. Still, the $72.6 million worldwide cume is soft given the $50 million budget , though a number of international markets have yet to open.
Finishing up the top five is Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which had its biggest weekend drop yet, falling 42% for a $2.3 million seventh weekend. Of course, that's no reason to frown for the horror film, which has a domestic cume of $103 million and global cume of $ 210 million from a budget of just $20 million.
The one new specialty title of note comes from a filmmaker we don't typically associate with the specialty box office: Steven Spielberg. The Beard's semi-autobiographical family drama Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse opened in four theaters in New York and Los Angeles to $160k, a $40k average. The film expands to 600 theaters the day before Thanksgiving, and it has the potential to break out in a way that none of the other of the season's awards contenders have. We're also seeing very solid numbers from Watch ‘Filmmakers for the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which grossed $1.7 million this weekend for a seventh place finish, bringing its cume to $5.8

2023.06.06 17:45 AgileAdvice2066 I hate Zelda

I hate Zelda. I hate the fact that it exists. The mechanics are anywhere from obtuse to the gameplay equivalent of Quaaludes.
I wish the gameplay could do anything to excite me or anyone else, but even after inserting a Breath of The Wild Cartridge directly into my pons, I still can't fathom the appeal of a mute little chimp running around swinging metal with the visual flair of a starving POW.
The music makes me feel like I'm in that moment right after my toe finally pulls the trigger but before metal meets meat and my whole life flashes before my eyes. Why did I boot this up? Is what I'm doing even something that constitutes 'play'? Is there a hell hot enough for the developers of this 64 bit torture?
Did development begin on TOTK in Guantanamo Bay to get prisoners to break? If not, I'm sure someone would be glad to give it a try in the near future as soon as someone dumb enough to purchase this game finally does so and reports it to the authorities for the abuse it is.
Compare this GARBAGE to the zen, tranquility, the masterpiece of experience, Dark Souls II. Every moment from the second you boot up the game is handcrafted artistry. It's a good thing Miyazaki didn't even get his greasy mitts on this game to fill it full of feet and over the top 'lore'.
Dark Souls II not just refined, it perfected the metroidvania, Zelda-like experience and honed it to a razor's edge by which all other games will prove if they can be cut from the same cloth. It's a rare gem in a sea of mediocrity and trite sequels and remakes.
Is what I would say if I had played any Zelda or Dark Souls II.
But I've only played Bloodborne, so pic unrelated.

2023.06.06 17:45 compound-interest Now that every company has played their hand, here are my predictions where each new headset will fall into the market

Right now, I am daily driving 2 headsets: G2 and PSVR2. I own a Quest 2, CV1, Go, and the last 2 GearVRs.
Here is my opinion of who each upcoming headset is for:
Quest 3 - Fans of Quest 2 that want an upgrade. I think I will recommend people see if VR is for them with a Quest 2 first. Since they are dropping Quest 2 back to $299, I think used ones will be down to $199. Maybe Walmart will have the refirb black Friday sale again for like $199-249.
I expect Quest 3 pancake lenses will be a nice clarity bump, and I think the upgrade is worth $200 more, but some people buy VR and stuff it in a closet forever. In summary, Quest 3 is a reasonable upgrade for people who have tried and love standalone VR, and don't want to get a PC, or deal with a wire. Wireless PC gaming is valid, but I am personally not a fan of the compression.
I really don't mind the wire, and that's why I haven't used Quest 2 since December when I got my G2. It will be interesting to compare Quest 3 large sweet spot of clarity to G2. I expect the G2 to still be an overall better package for PCVR. Imo this comparison is still important, because we need to know the best PCVR headset around $500 USD. I am going to be really surprised if Quest 3 exceeds G2, because what I have heard about Quest Pro doesn't (I haven't tried Quest Pro so I can't speak to that).
The G2 still holds a candle to the Beyond according to recent through the lens comparisons, which still makes it the go-to entry level PCVR headset for at least another year or so imo. I haven't really heard of a PCVR headset coming that's going to cost around the price of Quest 2. It's a shame that Meta refuses to sell a SKU of Quest 3 with uncompressed Link at higher margin to the 20% of their users that use SteamVR, but I digress.
Bigscreen Beyond - PCVR enthusiasts that want a headset specifically made for maximum comfort, clarity, and compatible with the best tracking system available for VR. One thing I really like about Beyond is that they are taking their disadvantage of being a small company and turning it into an advantage. What I mean by that is I think they are actually making a product that a huge company like Meta couldn't make. I don't think Meta can reasonably sell a headset right now with a custom facial interface. It would be a nightmare to try to ship 20 million Quests all with a different facial interface. The custom interface will make a huge difference.
Not only that, but the yields and price of oled micro displays are not ready for a product with Quest sales volume. Meta are constrained by battery, mobile processing, etc that all add weight to the device. It will be a very long time before they can make a device as small and compelling as Beyond in a standalone form factor, with enough scale for it to make sense for them. All those sacrifices just to avoid a wire and the need for a PC.
If I could make an analogy, there is a director named Matt Johnson that turns his independent films into an advantage rather than a disadvantage. He knows big movie studios can't make films with the crazy plots he comes up with so rather than trying to do what the big guys do but worse, he makes stuff that only small directors can make. Bigscreen is essentially doing that, but for VR headsets.
Bigscreen's headset is literally right at the edge of the current display port standard, which is why the full resolution requires display stream compression at 90hz. All that and in a tiny form factor with pancake lenses? I just think they are making all the right decisions. I'm not trying to shill for them, but this is the first time since CV1 that I feel like one company is making the exact headset I want.
Apple Vision Pro - Developers and professionals with a very specific niche use-case. This is a first generation headset that Apple feels meets their minimum bar. I think this headset will have 2 positive effects on the market as a whole:
  1. Supply chain. I think their demand for the components in this headsets will cause more attention to be brought to manufacturing various components. Off-the-shelf parts will become bettecheaper sooner than they would have without Apple's entry.
  2. Public perception. VR will become slightly more accepted and normalized than it was before. This may also lead to more companies testing the water of VR hardware, especially if Google gets their shit together and makes a platform that hardware venders can take advantage of. Kinda like WMR but standalone. It would be pretty cash money if one of those chose to make a headset that actually tethers to a PC like the Pico 3 Link did...
One thing I have noticed about various communities online is people have trouble imagining the use-case that others might have. I used to get downvoted for enjoying Go so much when it came out. Sometimes I take it out and am just amazed at how inexpensive and compelling it was. I used to hang out in Bigscreen almost like VRC and just chat with others about movies and shit. It was a surprisingly good experience for the price because of how lightweight it was.
The Apple headset is in the opposite side of the price spectrum, but still has the issue of not fitting into what most people currently using VR want. If you can't imagine a use case for it, it's not for you. If reviews come out and it is genuinely a great professional tool that does a few things better than any other professional hardware, I am thrilled about that. I hope that happens, because then instead of a 3-4k laptop, my work can get me one of these. I could see the Apple Vision Pro being excellent for certain design applications, certain video workloads, and certain modeling workflows. I will wait for reviews on it, and I find it to be an interesting market entry.
Finally, I am interested to see if all this new hardware makes a dent on the open web. That's a whole separate discussion, but I think it's interesting to imagine the future of the web if the headsets have enough clarity that a ton of people use it that way.

2023.06.06 17:45 OldTrapper87 A DayZ New player experience

I could feel my heart pounding as I logged into DayZ for the first time. I had heard so many stories about this game, the survival, the teamwork, and the danger lurking around every corner. I had played other survival games before, but none matched the intensity of DayZ.
As I spawned into the game, I immediately began scavenging for supplies. I came across a guy, his name was Jack, and he was also a new player. We exchanged pleasantries and agreed to team up. For hours, we traveled the desolate wasteland together, looting and fighting off any threats that came our way. We even managed to find a car and began driving through the countryside.
Our teamwork was excellent, and I felt a sense of accomplishment in surviving this long. As night approached, we decided to make camp in a small town. While Jack gathered firewood, I explored a nearby building for supplies. That's when I heard it - a faint click. I turned around to see Jack standing there with a pistol pointed directly at me.
"What are you doing?" I stuttered, trying to make sense of the situation.
"I'm sorry, man," Jack replied, his voice monotone. "But I need your supplies and your car. It's nothing personal."
I couldn't believe what was happening. After hours of playing together, he was going to betray me like this. I could feel my adrenaline pumping, my fight-or-flight response kicking in. Without a second thought, I bolted out of the building, Jack's bullets whizzing past me.
I ran through the dark, deserted streets, aware that Jack was close behind me. I was terrified, but my survival instincts kicked in as I climbed on top of a nearby building to get a better view of my surroundings. I could see Jack below, searching frantically for me.
I knew I couldn't stay there for long, but I had an idea. I had saved a grenade from our earlier looting trip. I pulled the pin and threw it as far as I could in the direction of Jack. The explosion echoed through the night as I sprinted towards the car. With a deep breath, I got in and drove away, leaving Jack behind, his betrayal and the memory of our teamwork almost nonexistent.
As I made my way through the darkness, I realized that in DayZ, betrayal can happen anywhere at any time. It was a harsh lesson, but one that I will never forget. I continued alone through the unforgiving world, hoping to survive another day.

2023.06.06 17:43 korilove491 I wish I could roll back time

I got scared so I ran, I got scared because you weren’t just acting that way through the phone; you were kind gentle, patient, loving, caring and everything else in person, face to face. You weren’t just all talk. You cared and I felt it but have never felt it before, so I ran. I self sabotaged, I’m sorry I ruined us. Your seamless transition the one that I was present for begging you to talk to me to open up to me to try and work things out. I wasn’t perfect I take my fair share for driving you away. But I did love you, I do love you. I begged for your time as well it was much later than I should’ve I kept up with your schedule I fought for you. I fought to keep you I faced anxieties I was doing good and making way to be suitable for you. I know that love isn’t enough to live on and while I do think maybe going our separate ways was necessary for me to become exactly what I said I would be. And hope that eventually you knock out of fooling yourself. I’m not stupid I may be getting the short end of the stick. You may have felt like I was never there but I was I tried. I didn’t give it my all and I should’ve given it long long ago but you are basing the possibility of a future with me solely off of my past and while that past is creditable and painful that isn’t who I am today and certainly will not be who I am tomorrow. I long for you not because of our past nor the possibility of a future but because you are someone who taught me love. Someone who I can’t see myself living without. I’m sorry for the disrespect lack of respect I’m sorry for all of the pain I have caused I am sorry for never amounting to what you saw within me. But your fooling yourself if you truly believe there is nothing here still. Be harsh cover it up do what you must but I am no fool. We shared a genuine connection. A connection at the first site of each other. It was small and it developed over time. It was beautiful it was grand and I did what I thought was right. I got into this thinking there wouldn’t be a lot of time for us and I was okay with that I didn’t want to impede on your success I never wanted to feel like I was getting in your way. I knew what I wanted to do but just continued to allow my own depression and attitude get the best of me allowing it to dictate my life. I will forever regret the failure that is the way I treated you I will forever miss you. I will forever long for you I will forever love you. I won’t be moving on for some time. I won’t be able too I don’t want to I just want to live my life with my person. That isn’t what you want and I have to respect that. I have to respect your wishes and while you may not see it now I promise you no one will understand you the way I do. I hope they do I pray for your health and happiness I pray someone else is able to make that beautiful smile shine and to have that embarrassing shy latina I once loved glow as radiant as I know her to be. I pray for you to live a successful life and that all well end up well for you regardless as to what I want. For I know what I have for you is love in its truest form and I hate myself so much for realizing it so late. I hate myself so much for allowing you to escape my clutches because I didn’t take care of you I didn’t take care of us and I would give anything absolutely anything and everything for one more chance to make you laugh to make you smile to even hear your heart pound. I am going to be what I set out to be not in hopes of your return or in hopes of your regret but because I can’t let you get the best of me. I cannot let the loss of my best friend continue to hold me down. I hope you realize that you truly are my bestest friend. My life is filled with regret. And forcing my own best friend my life partner against me will be something I live with forever but I promise you I will be who I set out to be and there is nothing that will stand in my way for this is my life’s work and I will not let it ride on either it will or it won’t. Love is found in the most unexpected places. You deserved to be loved to the maximum. I wanted to give you the best life but couldn’t even get a grasp of my own life. I have read and re read the things that were attached and I have read them over and over again. I never ever meant to hurt you. To cause you such pain and distrust. I have loved you now and I will love you always

Holy wow. These people really don’t give a duck about you or me. They actively talk about getting their supply in a brazen way. They think they’re worst qualities make them special. If you ever wonder if you are getting through to the narcissist in your life, you’re not. if you think they care or want to change, they don’t.

2023.06.06 17:43 indyman_123 How 'Malazan' is "sold" to a brand new reader (like me) around the internet... the factors that led me to ultimately start the journey... and some important advice for the first-timers before going in.

Firstly, I would like to thank you all for voting ,commenting, and sharing your opinions on my previous post. That has really helped me in not only going ahead and trying to attempt and do the whole quick review / recap thing, but also to go ahead with a lot of renewed curiosity, interest, and energy into the series (and also hopefully try and NOT go into the "burnout" mode in the whole process of doing so).
Anyways, but before starting the above mentioned thing though, I would like to address a couple of things based off my personal overall experiences on certain stuff... way before I went ahead and picked up GOTM.
Please note that a few things have already been briefly mentioned in my previous posts and comments, but I wanted to elaborate on certain aspects of it, and even to provide some context to some of the things.
How MBOTF / Malazan is sold to a brand new reader like me around the internet -
These are some of the main and common things that I found out while searching for what the series was all about. Some resources describe the series in a more positive way, whereas some in a more less than positive way (negative is probably not the right word here I feel, cuz the resources are telling you why you should pick it up in the first place, rather than not to) -
  1. The series is very long, in fact one of the longest out there wrt fantasy / word count, and that it's still not complete. MBOTF is done (with 10 BIG books) by SE, but the 'Malazan World' as a whole has a lot more to offer, including NOTME by ICE (again completed; with 6 books), two prequels series, one sequel series, and a bunch of novellas. And there are more books on the way! So spending the time and energy for this is the reader's personal choice.
  2. It is also probably the most complex / challenging series out there. So start at your own risk. Especially if you're new to fantasy or haven't read too much stuff before. Also, you will not understand everything, SE doesn't spoon feed the readers in any way. So if you're into it, then only go for it.
  3. Not for everyone's taste too. That it tackles certain aspects in a much "rougher way" (violence, sexual assault, etc.), and that the author doesn't pull any punches in doing so. As long as one is able to manage their emotions wrt this, it will be OK. Otherwise, not for the faint hearted so as to speak.
  4. The writing / prose is pretty good, but again, not for everyone. It can get very confusing and difficult at times. Can also get too much philosophical at times, and as the series progresses, some of the books tend to drag on a bit. And the major underlying themes concerned are compassion, pain, grief, suffering, etc.
  5. The characters, although some very well written, do not quite come out as the best in the genre (writing wise). There are too many characters' POV to follow, and that can be challenging to say the least.
  6. It is more of a military fantasy in a way, involving multiple battle sequences, strategies, etc. and if you like wars, armies, magic, assassins, thieves, fantasy creatures, amazing places, some cool OP characters, even gods themselves getting involved in a much bigger game, you should definitely go for it.
  7. The worldbuilding is top class though, and the journey throughout is well worth all your efforts in the end. Many even stating that this right here is the most epic and best fantasy series they have ever read!
  8. Lastly, that GOTM is THE hardest of the bunch wrt everything. The writing, plot wise, character wise, understanding wise, etc. I f you can manage to push through it, you'll be able to get on pretty well. Also, to judge if the series is made for you or not, go through AT LEAST the first three books of MBOTF. If then you're into it, it's definitely for you. If not, you should probably consider dropping it.
Now, this is NOT to point fingers or to highlight anybody / any online resource, or community. This is just what I as a new reader found out and was informed wrt the series in general. There were some things to put me off personally like the complexity, length, etc. But there was plenty that I thought was right down my alley, and I would enjoy it very much (like deadly big hounds, lots of dragons, dinosaurs with blade hands, a short, plump dude who's funny and dangerous at the same time, some super cool powerful dude with charcoal skin and white flowing hair equipped with an even powerful sword, and so on. You get the point, right?). And thus, I went ahead and got GOTM as soon as I could!
Factors that led me to start the Malazan Book of the Fallen -
Now, since the turn of the year, I've been greatly influenced by certain factors that propelled me into starting this journey - (in no particular order really)
  1. Malaztube / Booktube / Youtube - I know there are quite a few number of people out there who make some really good content wrt Malazan, but the following were the ones that I personally was hugely inspired by (again, in no particular order) - Matt's Fantasy Book Reviews, Iskar Jarak, Andy Smith, The Fantasy Nuttwork, Mike's Book Reviews, Daniel Greene, Petrik Leo, CREEDER, etc. [NOT promotional in any way btw]
  2. Artworks / Fan arts / Cover designs / Other graphical representations - These were genuinely the things that pushed me into starting the series even further. Some really beautiful and amazing stuff present out there, without question. Makes you want to read it for yourself, to experience it first hand!
  3. Articles / Posts / Websites / Other online resources - There's a TON of stuff out there, in-depth / detailed to such an extent that you wouldn't deem possible. All that and then some. Whatever you need, it's there. The amount of dedication, effort, and analysis for this series made me realize that it was certainly more than special, and again, gave me that final push needed.
  4. This sub right here - No cap / sugar coating in any way. I've been following / reading the posts and the comments since the past 2-3 months from afar, and was really surprised to see a well balanced community. Also was able to check out the various resources, related sites, and the reading companions, which again, strengthens the fact that there's so much great content and info. present out there thanks to the efforts of many people. So keep it up and kudos for that! The only slight disappointment for me was that the number of Bonehunters present were/are just a little bit lower than what I expected. Hopefully many more recruits on the way! But hey, quality over quantity, as they say!
All the above factors did a massive job in pushing me to start the series immediately. And without wasting any more time, I ordered a copy of GOTM (which was on sale luckily!).
Some VERY important advice for all the new readers out there -
I absolutely had to post this, no doubt. Especially with my personal experience, I find it a kind of motivation to try and help / stop this from happening to the brand new audience. If you want to avoid being spoiled wrt anything and everything about the series before even stepping a foot into it, here's some words of advice that you might consider following -
  1. TOTALLY AVOID THE BACK COVERS / SYNOPSIS! - Two major spoilers were ruined for me while doing this. Now, I get that you are looking to know what is happening and what not, but avoid this. Maybe just go for the GOTM one since it'll be your first book to pick (even though you'd still be wondering WTH is going on and why), but that's all. No more. Rather go for Malaztube / Booktube / Youtube content which has non spoiler stuff. Those are very well explained, and won't spoil anything for you. Rather will make the basic gist of the series pretty clear so you can directly hop on the wagon. Lots of channels to choose from as well. Even some of the articles / websites will do the same for you (hoping you avoid clicking where you shouldn't be clicking in the first place!).
  2. AVOID GETTING INTO THE ARTWORK / FAN ART TRAP! - Now, I'm not saying this in a negative way, of course not. There are some gorgeous, amazing artworks out there, especially fan arts. But make sure you only go through the ones with a NO SPOILER tag / label. Otherwise, don't even glance at it. Some artists / fans don't have the tags or labels on their personal pages / bios. So watch out. I have unfortunately received one of the biggest possible spoilers while doing this. So tread carefully. You have been warned!
  3. ARTICLES / WEBSITES / OTHER ONLINE RESOURCES - There are really some GREAT stuff out there about Malazan (I really can't help but stress this point even more). But one wrong click, and chances are you might get spoiled, like I did. So again, only go for the NON SPOILER stuff.
  4. ABOUT THIS SUB - There's a reason there are multiple, well defined flairs present here. So out of curiosity and excitement, DO NOT click on any of the spoiler posts, let alone the comments. Even then, the spoiler part is covered by a grey patch. DO NOT click on it if you don't want to get spoiled. Things I've been personally guilty of, but luckily, didn't spoil anything major as such.
Can you see a pattern here with all the three segments combined?
Anyways, so yeah, that's pretty much it from my perspective. I have been spoiled certain big stuff while doing this the wrong way (even though I've been assured through this sub that there's still a LOT to uncover and experience. So it isn't going to slow me down in any way btw). So, I do hope new comers won't tread the same path, and rather go through it in a much more cautioned approach for an even better first time experience!
Still here, are you? Really? Well, I hope it was either somewhat useful, kinda informative, or maybe even helpful in a way. Let me know if I've missed anything, or should've left out, or anything else for that matter.
Oh, and one last thing. I've come to gather that this sub doesn't shy away from long posts. Well, so how about a decent sized one for a start, eh? ;)

2023.06.06 17:42 MissFrijole Hospital Bill scam

I am fairly certain this is a scam, but I feel like I should share it, in case anyone else gets something similar.
I received a text message that looked legitimate, coming from a medical clinic telling me I have a bill I need to pay (in a state I done live in or near.) There was a link and a phone number in the message. I did not click the link, but I went to the URL in my browser. The website is legitimate and I entered my phone number in the login, but the next window asked for a statement number, which I obviously didn't have because I never visited this hospital.
I did a search of the contact phone number and reviews of it said it was some woman calling people asking to speak to someone else about billing. They were vague, but that raised a red flag. Then I searched the number that actually sent the text message and it was not associated with anything related to the content of the text and had a different area code.
Two weeks later, I got a reminder text of this bill with the same URL and billing phone number.
I have blocked the number, but I haven't reached out to the clinic to find out if someone stole my numbeidentity, or if it's a scam. I'm fairly certain this is a scam to get money out of me. I don't live anywhere near the clinic and haven't had any procedures done recently.
If anyone receives something similar, be sure to investigate!

2023.06.06 17:42 MoneyJobJon NVIDIA GPU Drivers Don't Actually Install

Hello all,
I'm at the end of my wits here and need some assistance.
I built my PC back in 2020 and had no issues, fast forward to a few months ago, my computer was running into some issues and would black screen freeze, my solution was a fresh install of windows 11. Problem was resolved, fast forward to last month, the problem arises again, this time more frequently until I couldn't post. After some research, tried a new power supply, no luck, tested the GPU with a friend's build, and sure enough my 3080 died. Thankfully it was under warranty and has been shipped away for RMA.
I bought a Gigabyte 3060 to hold me over while waiting, same black screen issues, went through a bunch of driver uninstall/reinstalls until finally it worked great. Now yesterday I replaced the GPU with the same exact model but with a PCIE gen 4 riser vs gen 3 and the black screen returned. Frustrated that I had the same issue with seemingly no changes, I did more research and found this JayzTwoCents video that described my issue.
It seems that the GPU drivers refuse to actually install. The installer completes no problem, but the driver doesn't seem to be installed. Heaven benchmark is giving 5 FPS, NVapi won't initialize in FanControl. I tried to flash the ROM on the GPU per the video mentioned earlier but no luck.
Also, the driver version I can install and post with is 496.13, this version is the one running Heaven at 5 FPS. Any newer version returns a error 43 in device manager and won't post after a restart. Even the more current driver that was previously running fine won't work.
I feel like I'm losing my mind here and would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions.
Here's my parts list;
- Ryzen 5800x
- MSI B550i
- Gigabyte 3060 Gaming OC

2023.06.06 17:42 xmcchillinx1 Thank you - Finally submitted the claim

Intent to file was 10 months ago. I feel like the process so far was physically exhausting and mentally draining. Putting the claims together nearly broke me quite a few times. I’m hopeful that the hard part is over. The statement in support of my MH increase was by far the worst part and I don’t even want to think of the C&P exam..
Thank you to this group for the wealth of information available as I would have surely given up without this. I did not know of this subreddit 4 years ago and got overwhelmed and let my intent to file expire. After finding this group I chose to try again.
It’s not much, but actually submitting the claim is a huge victory for me and I just wanted to express my appreciation.

I enjoy videocalls and voicecalls aswell.

If you are considering to send me a DM, make a small introduction. Mostly I use Discord to chat, if you are ok we can move there, but Reddit chat is fine too.

2023.06.06 17:41 berdel__ Gator under water MAP - where to lose it and where not.

Gator under water MAP - where to lose it and where not.
We all know stories about alligators lost under water, which really happend, what creates a spooky legend "alligator hunt is so hard because they are gone under water". Yes, technically it is possible to lost them under water because this is how the game is designed, how alligators "dive and hide" mechanic is designed. However there is a huge BUT.
My beginnig of alligator grind was hard as spooky legend says - losing gators under water, must hit neck or head. I was trying, exploring, taking that pain, taking my lessons, analysing and planing how to make things just easier. After some time I got all pieces together and got a new concept how to try grinding them and not to lose them under water.
Now, when I'm absolute in love od grinding them, after over 1700 kills, I have a lot of arguments and final conclusions, which can denify a lot of problems and mistakes of most of players trying hunt gators. The same mistakes and problems with I had to deal and which I did. There was no easy way out on beginnig.
It can be unpopular opinion, annoying one, making some ppl salty, but we have to say it loud - losing alligators under water is mainly an effect of bad shot placement. I don't care what kind of shot - gator hunt don't tolerate bad shots. Bad head or neck shot which don't instant kills is bad shot, bad shot at lungs, which ends in leg or not in lungs is mess. If you can't take perfect shot on gator, you are taking NO SHOT - that's all. Your job is to make everything to get to place and time for perfect shot. End of story.
Of course we can blame the game about allowing that kind of problem. So of course, reason is not bad shot, reason is, because gators can be gone under water, right? Just let us hit them like we want, no matter good or not, let us make them complete mess and please give me my gator from water back.. Is this the way? This game mechanic should be not working like that but even if it is what it is there is possibility to hunt them efficient with fun and with no problems. And this mechanic makes gator hunt 'easy to start but hard to master' and gators as animal 'easy to hit but hard to get'. Which is something special in COTW. It is absloute another level and world of hunting compare to white tails or any other ground animal.
As I wrote - I killed over 1700 gators. My way is to (only) lung shots. In my opinion neck and head shooting is only a space for making huge mistakes (specially on very long ranges), letting them reach the water and losing them there. Because WOUNDED AND SLOW DYING ALLIGATOR WILL BE ALMOST ALWAYS A UNDER WATER LOST ALLIGATOR. But - perfect hitted gator is not a lost one. The reason is here how deep are waters on hunting spots. If they have to much time to dive and reaching the deepest spots, they will be gone - that's the reason why bad shots giving them time to dive that deep (more details in my YT video).
Now, why am I mentoning my number of kills? Because I let all alligators run in water! I even want them run in water to easier collecting them! I have absolutely no stress about gator in water. So far I lost ONLY 45 (saying my newest notes) gators under water. 10 of them because I really lost them even with beeing sure spot is safe or low risk. But just think about it - 10 of 1700. It is marginal.
35 of them were lost because I was lazy - there were just bad shots or I just could do more to avoid their reaching the very worst spots. For example - in near of 'black hole' spot I could take (last chance solution) neck shot or just make more effort for double lungs. But no - I was lazy and took bad shot and I was not angry or suprised it was lost. Or I just kill them 'anyhow' - you know, grinding right on some days.
So, after all that kills and taking gators from water (aside some hundreds killed on ground on short ranges) I got some experiences where you can lose gator under water and where not. And I give you that knowledge on a plate to stop talking all over "yOu haVe tO lOsT gaToR unDEr WaTeR". Because you don't have.
KEEP in mind - this map will be working like that only if gator dies in the marked point after a one perfect vital shot. Hurting them, messing them up, machine gunning them will not making this map works. And I'm thinking about guns with class 4-8 ammo and 4-9 ammo like M1 or zarza .308. (in case someone is planning to rush gators with ranger or solokhin - no, it will not work)
The colours of spots*:
  1. Green (safe) - literally no risk.
  2. Blue (low risk) - Im taking them as safe but there are sometimes somewhere deepness under water, which can be hit very rare
  3. Yellow (risk) - every time I'm shooting there I'm still thinking I will get my gator, but a lost can happen here. I would be nervous about hitting diamond there.
  4. Red (high risk) - you will lost there more than get to harvest
  5. Black - you will never pull something out from black hole *green (like lost 1 of 200), blue (1 of 80), yellow (1 of 30), red (11 of 20), black almost ALL.
You can make these colours a one step "safer" by doing double vital shot. But be sure you can - angle is perfect, there is enough long escape route to still get second shot etc. Or try to bow hunt (even two steps safer). Or neck or head - decisions are on you as all later mistakes and loses.
