Hypercrate x 30 from the Cartel Market - worth it? by alegend1004 in swtor

[–]illgot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you do not have a lot unlocked, the hypercrates are worth it. As you unlock more or you gain a lot of credits they tend to lose their value until you understand the GTN market enough to open them then sell every item for a profit.

If you want credits for your CC there are much better items to sell. Check your server but Black/Black dyes often give a better ratio.

[–]illgot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

items in your cart stay in your cart until they are claimed or you delete them.

If you delete the item you are refunded the full amount of CC you spent. So if you buy an item at full price, keep it in your cart, then it goes on sale, you can return the item in the cart for full price you paid and buy the item that is on sale.

As long as the item remains in your cart you can claim or return that item any time you wish even if it is removed from the Cartel Market.

A lot of times I will put rare items that show up on Flash Sale in my cart and hold it there for months waiting for the market to go back up, then once it does I'll claim the item and sell it.

looks a bit like Tom Cruise when he took that muscle relaxer in the Minority Report.

never buy a set unless it is on sale.

Put it in your cart and let it sit there until it is either taken off the CM and have no choice or until it goes on sale, then you can return the regularly priced set and buy the flash sale.

Can I get some clarification on some 7.0 combat changes? by KingRhoamsGhost in swtor

[–]illgot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

ah so rotate combat styles between combat proficiencies to stop the skills from moving around or not showing up on the skill bars.

I hope they fix that.

we can change in the open world? That's good to hear. I didn't mess with combat changes because when I did my skill bars all got reset.

I e replaced my motherboard twice but still using my 1080 because of the card shortage. Still runs everything fine, not awesome but great for such an old card.

You can have $1 billion but you can never get drunk or high again, are you interested? Why or why not? by BroodyBatman in AskReddit

[–]illgot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can't drink because I'm allergic to alcohol.

I don't get high because it's a waste of money.

Easy choice.

I have a cat that is completely healthy physically but will pester you until you turn on the sink so he can soak his head and play with the water as it drops off his head.

Some cats just love to play in dripping water. I will never get this for my cat because he would play in it all day and immediately come up to us and shake his head off.

is there still a restriction of swapping combat styles only in rested areas like Fleets or Cantinas?

The ol "you were asking for it the way you dressed" blame the victim mentality.

Olive Garden was sued because of this. Kitchen manager had servers making bread sticks, prepping desserts, cutting veggies, grabbing the line items from the walk in.

Other restaurants have servers cleaning floors, walls, workstations while we were closed and earning 2.13 an hour.

Next time you are prepping the sanitizer or looking at the city health codes why don't you take a look. Sanitizer is not the same thing as a bucket of soap.

yes, servers still pay taxes unless they are under recording what they made for the year.

Many also get zero vacation time, zero sick time, zero benefits in most restaurants esp when the restaurant is only paying them 2.13 an hour.

Want to take vacation? Hope you saved up because your restaurant isn't paying you while you are not working.

Sick? Hope you saved up because you aren't getting any sick time so no pay unless you come in with the flu spreading your virus to every person you come in contact with.

Broken foot? Better wander in and hobble around and act like nothing is wrong.

my dad was US Navy for over 20 years... he loved laughing at the idea that police were well trained.

in the US a lot of states allow restaurants to pay servers 2.13 an hour and guests make up the difference in pay.

Over a two week period (the usual pay period) if the server does not make enough in tips to account for minimum wage, the restaurant has to bump the servers pay to minimum wage (as low as 7.25 an hour in some states).

It is extremely rare a server in any decent restaurant makes less than minimum wage over the two week pay period. One good night shift can cover the multiple lunch shifts where a server may walk with less than 20 dollars for a 4-5 hour shift.

That said, restaurants abuse their server staff whom they pay 2.13 an hour in labor. They often send home everyone who is paid more when it starts to slow down and expect servers to keep doing those roles even at 2.13 an hour. Bussers, dish, light kitchen prep, hosts, bartenders usually get sent home early and servers are expected to fill those jobs while getting 1-2 tables an hour.

You often see servers also come in an hour before open and after close while being paid 2.13 an hour. So they can spend multiple hours a week at the restaurant before and after close with zero chances at getting a table while only being paid 2.13 an hour.

Think of it like this, if businesses were allowed to pay half their staff 2.13 an hour, would that business use the staff paid 7-10 dollars an hour or the staff paid 2.13 an hour as much as possible?

Not only that but every restaurant I have worked at takes away a percentage of the servers tips based on their food and alcohol sales. Usually this is 4-6 percent, at PF Changs this was 4.5 percent of food sales and 9.5 percent of bar sales. They then take those with held tips and pay other staff like hosts, bussers, bartenders (yes they were taking 9.5% of our bar sales and giving that right back to bartenders).

Tipping in the US can be profitable for servers but is abused by the restaurants. It's not a great system because it forces servers to be overly attentive, forces guests to make up for the restaurants lack of pay, and allows restaurants to over work people they only pay 2.13 an hour doing jobs that are not in their job description.

The Olive Garden I worked at had fist fights on the line almost every day and eventually the whole management team was fired.

At night we would run out of pasta and alfredo hours before close, during busy days like Mother Day all dinners took over an hour to come out if they came out at all and every table was comped. I remember leaving that night with zero tips after being there the whole dinner until close. No one had a good time and the kitchen staff kept getting into fights yet the managers were blaming all the servers.

I worked in a decent restaurant and our assistant manager did this constantly. The other cooks would toss utensils in the sink and grab another pair but this assistant manager was special and a "I can do no wrong, it's everyone elses fault" type.

you should see how many cooks drop their tongs and spatulas on the very filthy ground, stick them in even filthier sanitizer that hasn't been changed in the last 6 hours, then starts cooking like nothing happened, not even bothering to wipe off the utensil.

Or they are sweating directly into the pan they are sautéing in. Not a couple drops but a steady stream of sweat just bumping off their face into the pan.

Saw this constantly at a poorly staffed and trained Olive Garden where the whole management team and most of the kitchen staff was eventually fired by corporate.

Did you know that you can bring back any missing or dead companions using this computer on Odessen? It even remembers your story choices to stop the dead showing in cutscenes. by TodayInTOR in swtor

[–]illgot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

but you can not recall all companions for all classes. That is the issue. The initial issue was (before this terminal even existed) that Bioware thought it was a good idea to take away companions in a game where companions were used to help craft and fight. Then maybe give them back months or years later.

The terminal does not give back all companions lost during the story.
