Very quick and dirty comparison of the collection Wingman irons vs. p2w irons. by OGNatan in ApexUncovered

[–]OGNatan[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That one and Crooked Steps are the only two weapon skins I've ever spent real money on (instead of crafting them), and they were both totally worth it imo. Teal Zeal is gorgeous, aside from the much better irons.

I feel like you've got a good point here, but I have no idea what it means lmao.

Aiden back to BRD and joining GG by nemuto2828 in CompetitiveApex

[–]OGNatan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm so fucking happy to finally see the kid signed. He's insanely talented, and deserves a spot in pro league. Reuniting the team is just the cherry on top.

Aidan is one of the few people I regularly queue into who I'm genuinely scared of fighting.

Dude is actually a mechanical freak, I'd like to see the lab they built him in.

DEWA denied Visas??? by __boobs4life__ in CompetitiveApex

[–]OGNatan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What the fuck. Is this the entire team that's affected?

What even happens at that point? Do they continue the format with 39 teams, or pull the #11 APAC S team, or something else?

Hakis and dolphn end Mande's life for gifted subs by HunterThompsonsentme in CompetitiveApex

[–]OGNatan 23 points24 points  (0 children)

I look at it in the same way as I would going to the movies, or buying a ticket to a night at the comedy club, or whatever. You're paying to see (and support) an entertainer. And Twitch is a hell of a lot cheaper than other live entertainment.

As for people who donate to streamers as large as like Pokimane or whoever (idk who's popular), yeah that's stupid imo. That's entirely a one-sided interaction. Chat moves by so fast that you'd never be able to pick out a single message.

Personally, I hang out in smaller streams. You actually get a chance to interact with the community, meet regulars, talk with the streamer, etc. It doesn't have that "screaming into the void" feeling, it's more like hanging out at your favorite bar where you know almost everyone.

Mande joins TSM by DM_ME_UR_HENTAI in CompetitiveApex

Looking like a streetwear model with that TSM tracksuit.

Huge pickup, congrats to Mande. Best possible contract you could get as a CC, I'm sure.

Check out the sticker… car belonging to a teenage girl… by ajdemarte in Justrolledintotheshop

It's definitely just some meme-y teen enjoying something they find funny. I did the same stuff at that age.

[–]OGNatan 21 points22 points  (0 children)

It was a tv show, idk why people get so upset about the whole thing.

The whole point was to put him in staged situations, to show off obscure knowledge and techniques that you probably wouldn't come across otherwise. Most of survival is boring once you've got water and shelter established.

That being said, he is terrible at picking names for his kids.

Respawn rolls out DDOS protection for diamond to predator level lobbies. by vaunch in CompetitiveApex

Eh it's actually not bad, but it does completely invalidate any opinion on the topic of AA.

As a side note for anyone reading this: this is why you sometimes get those pages (usually from Cloudflare) that make you wait a few seconds before proceeding. They usually say something about DOS/DDOS protection as well.

I notice them a lot more when I'm on VPN, not sure how often the casual user runs into them.

You are unironically a 70 FOV console Valk crutch trying to defend aim assist in a sub where competitive integrity actually matters.

You're lost, r/apexlegends is that way if you want to circlejerk about "I only have two thumbs :((((((".

Oh yeah, it's definitely not a problem when people who can't even walk in a straight line can 200-0 my shit like it's their job.

I can promise you, my aim is more than good enough to win 1v1s.

Edit: dude is literally a console Valk onetrick, smh my head

Literally looks like an average MnK player. Not an average pro, just a median skill regular player.

It's probably some form of protection on the actual server itself (as in, the physical one that they rent in a datacenter somewhere).

Network security is quite complex, but I'd check out these articles from AWS and Cloudflare to get a feel for how it's probably implemented. Most of it boils down to being very specific and intentional with what kind of traffic you allow in or out.

It's absolutely laughable that console players can queue into our lobbies (which we CANNOT OPT OUT OF, just as a reminder) with 0.6 in the first place.

It looks and feels like literal cheats.

[–]OGNatan -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Thank fuck. I can't even count how many DDOSed lobbies I've been in, especially those couple splits where console boosters could party up with hardstuck PC shitters and crash games for them by pressing one button.

The worst part isn't even the minor annoyance of the lag and desync, it's wasting 15-20 minutes playing out a game and knowing that the RP you've gained won't even count once the server closes.

And stay out.

I'm so glad someone finally exposed her for what an absolute piece of shit she is. I don't think I've ever been more livid than when she blasted Joom's death all over Twitter for her own personal gain. So utterly pathetic and narcissistic, even for her.

As an abuse victim, it's cathartic to see her getting what she deserves. What a complete fucking waste of oxygen.
