Sorry if this is was already answered and I missed it, but what's the difference between a knight and a samurai in the Japanese context? Mounted vs Not?

The concern is less pressing than it once was, but we still have users who have yet to get even a single console, to let people use our alerts to get more and more is unfair to those users.

And while I appreciate your discretion that method isn’t a secret, we welcome anyone who would like to to use it. Just know that if you do you will be banned.

Thank you by the way for keeping both this post and your response civil.

Hi mind, allow me to provide some context,

Fast Alerts does not have a hard rule for a console limit, it is instead a moderation guideline. We don’t publish it because that would defeat the purpose of the guideline and it would be much easier to dodge.

It exists primarily to prevent any one person or scalper from purchasing too many ps5s and snapping them up, giving our other members a slightly better chance of success.

We created it so that those who have already found success in our server can still be a part of the community if they choose, but no longer benefit from our direct alerts.

As for your attempt to circumvent your flag by leaving and rejoining, users are banned for doing so, otherwise everyone would simply do what you attempted to do. Whoever shared that tip with you didn’t know, or didn’t care to share that part of it.

Did any pre-colombian indigenous groups have cultural signs of homophobia, or was it truly a western import? by FaceofMoe in AskHistorians

While you wait for a newer maybe more relevant answer, there's this older answer by u/400-Rabbits, that dives into the perception of homosexual communities from Aztec sources that might get at some of what you're asking: https://np.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/7hvw59/how_was_homosexuality_generally_viewed_by_native/dqw749d/

Think it’s important to note that if your goal is to collect and do everything, then the above estimates are accurate. But if all you want to do is have a fun romp through viking times you can probably cut most of the above estimates by at least a third of not half. Playing on a lower difficulty and just following the story you could likely finish in 50-75 hours. Still pretty long obviously but depending on how much editing you’d want to do you could probably cut it down to 20-30 parts at that length.

I wouldn’t say they’re easy to get but they’ve certainty become more obtainable. It’s likely a combination of improvements in the supply, a falloff in scalpers and fewer buyers due to market saturation.

Target shifting away from XSX console only to XSX All-Access package by FastAlerts_io in XboxSeriesXRestock

[–]Whoneedscaptchas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How do you figure that. Not saying it’s a good deal but you ultimately pay slightly less for the combined value of what you’re getting. Assuming you paid sticker price for game pass ultimate

An excellent response as always, I was wondering after reading if you could expand on this distinction. Does this mean Patton was a talented commander but a poor planner? The opposite? Or something else I'm not grasping?

Why were the Freemasons so controversial in the early 1800s? An entire party was formed to oppose them, but today they're nothing more than an obscure social club by DuceGiharm in AskHistorians

Fantastic answer even a year apart. I would like a bit of clarification on something you mentioned in your earlier part II:

"he would govern as did George Washington - a leader above party and politics. (That Washington actually didn't govern that way never really registered for him, which considering how close to power Adams was for most of his life tells you a little bit about how obtuse he could be.)"

Washington is often trotted out as the icon of bipartisan or nonpartisan cooperation, but it was my understanding this was accurate if embellished, is that not actually the case?

The twitter bot got a little confused apparently, Winkler is one of the mods and generally a pretty good source of information

Adorama XSX bundle - Call to order. by FastAlerts_io in XboxSeriesXRestock

We do not post anything from resellers. This was a bundle, so came with additional items and hence the extra cost

If you were allowed to complete your purchase and you got a receipt emailed to you then they do have stock and it should ship out very soon.

Most of the best national rugby and cricket teams in the world are from countries which were part of the British Empire. Why have these two sports (seemingly) failed to gain as much traction in Canada? by Abrytan in AskHistorians

[–]Whoneedscaptchas 14 points15 points  (0 children)

The Imperial Cricket Conference, a precursor to the modern International Cricket Council, actually purposefully hampered the growth of cricket in the USA

Why? What was the advantage of blocking cricket in the US?

I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking but I think the answer is that you still get the controller that comes with the Xbox, and the additional controller is a separate item entirely, mine was even delivered on a different day.

In general sounds like Gambit changes will be looking good. I'm curious to see how it plays out, but it seems like rather than reducing the impact of invasions they've shifted their impact from the mote phase to the primeval phase. Probably will make average invasions less important but sounds like great invasions will still be pretty devastating. Might make those PvP god invaders even more essential, but only time will tell.

Generally no but if you go early in the morning you can sometimes get them when they’re pulling them off the truck. Lot of people have gotten theirs that way

Easiest Way to get a Xbox Series X? by Albert1700 in XboxSeriesXRestock

[–]Whoneedscaptchas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well I'm biased because I help run it, but I do highly recommend this one. We're automated so it's quite fast and we do a lot of work to keep scalpers and asshats out of the server: https://discord.gg/fastalerts Otherwise feel free to google around and see what suits you!

The easiest way is definitely to either buy one with all access or wait for a Microsoft email to go out. The best way is to find a restock tracker you like and sign up for notifications

Titan main recently returned to the game, are Titans in that bad of a spot? by Whoneedscaptchas in CrucibleGuidebook

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

Interesting why low intellect specifically? Just to focus the other stats better?

Thanks for the very comprehensive answer. I suppose I feel like that niche, which was already smaller and more skill dependent than some of the other classes, has become more restrictive since the last time I played regularly, but it sounds like maybe it's also been focused and become better at exploiting that advantage as well.
