    Board Game Smogon Chess Tournament - Round 7 [Post 1057]

    Maybe there was a mistake by the admin because it says you’re on 5.5 but you won with 4 last round. That would explain things I think.

    Fire Emblem Discussion Thread

    FE9 and FE10 were amazing, though I have never been a fan of any of the others I’ve tried. The older ones just had weird interfaces / maps and the newer ones introduce a lot of mechanics that I’ve never been a fan of (units doubling up, breeding new units, etc.). I do wish that they were easier...

    Speedrunning V3

    I never said it didn’t require lots of skill to glitch the hell out of a game - in some cases, lots more than it requires to beat the game itself. In plenty of cases it is very impressive. What I’m saying is that you’re not playing the game at that point. And when I want to watch a speedrun of...

    Speedrunning V3

    I’ve watched hundreds of hours of speedruns, possibly more. I admit I’ve started losing interest in them in recent years but I never said it didn’t take skill to manipulate the game’s engine. It’s just not a kind of skill that I associate with actually playing the game in question. It’s like if...

    Speedrunning V3

    This is gonna be a hot take but I think that speed runs which circumvent intended encounters / mechanics in the game shouldn’t be considered legitimate. Speedruns should require that you actually beat the game the developers built, not just abuse ways in which the game is broken.

    Serious Acne and skin issues

    I suffered from bad acne as a high schooler but it cleared up ‘normally’ around the time I hit senior year of high school. Then, freshman year of college, I randomly started getting way worse acne than I had ever had before (big nodule acne), while also getting breakouts in places I hadn’t...

    Around We

    I don’t watch full vods so it is really tough to tell, but 5Up generally seems better at convincing people of random BS than Hafu while Hafu seems better at making bold plays and snowballing off them. 5Up wins a lot of close games that he shouldn’t and rarely loses blowouts the way Hafu does...

    Books

    Station Eleven is a really engrossing, timely, and moving ensemble drama about how society might deal with a flu so deadly it creates an apocalyptic world. Would definitely recommend.

    Serious 2020 Democratic Primary Thread

    I had a long post typed up here in response but I’ve no desire to get into an argument with you on this or any other website. If you disagree that the arguments provided by the poster I quoted don’t mirror Republicans’ arguments defending Kavanaugh then sounds good, I do not care. The rest is...
