2020.09.19 13:38 DoekaanET What your smash main says about you:

Mario: You easily suffer from choice paralysis and always make the most boring and default choice. Your favorite ice cream is vanilla, your favorite color is blue, your favorite animal is dog, and your favorite movie is The Godfather. If you were in Nazi Germany, you would 100% use the “just following orders” defense. You will go to Hell when you die. Inkling: Why don’t you have a seat? What were you planning when you came here tonight? King Dedede: You masturbate to Deviantart ironically. Meta Knight: You masturbate to Deviantart unironically. Peach: You’re the girlfriend of the guy who bought this game. You thought Link’s name was Zelda and Samus’ name was Metroid. After 15 minutes, you’re gonna want to go back to playing Mario Kart. Daisy: The same as Peach, except you’re a lesbian. Bayonetta: You have said “Rawr XD” at some point in your life, and use Facebook to post memes about depression. It’s getting impossible to tell where your stretch marks end and your self-harm scars begin. You are bisexual. Wolf: You are either currently 14 years old, or you were 14 years old when Brawl came out, and haven’t matured at all beyond that. You watch way too much anime, you’ll never improve as an artist, and your OTP sucks Corrin: You unironically own multiple anime figurines, a body pillow of your waifu, and a katana. You’re either a furry or have a shitty OC that’s half dragon, half demon, and half vampire. You either have autism or are just an oblivious asshole with no social skills, it’s hard to tell. Squirtle: You bought the Switch and this game on launch day. You threw a tantrum when Fox stopped showing Saturday morning cartoons. Your mom wishes you’d move out of the house. Ivysaur: You’ve got weird arm and back acne. You like to pretend you main all three of the Pokemon, but everyone can see right through you. You love cute animals, but if you ever tried to take care of one by yourself, it’d die in a week. Charizard: You are a basic ass bitch. You spent the first 5 matches spamming smash attacks and your side B. You’re the only one on this list who has gotten laid recently, but it doesn’t matter because you lasted a minute. Donkey Kong: You actually hate playing Smash, and everyone playing with you. You don’t play to win, you play to inspire the greatest amount of anger around you. You cannot go 48 hours without saying the N word. Hard R. Jigglypuff: You were born incomplete. Some piece of you is missing. Maybe it’s the part of your brain that dictates rational choice, or the part that controls empathy. Maybe it’s your impulse control. Maybe, just maybe, you were born without a soul. You started small, at first. Mice and squirrels, and then you grew bolder. Your neighbor’s cat had gotten outside. She would never find the poor thing. Your parents soon discovered what you did, and their punishments forced you to keep dormant your dark desires. You carried on with your life, feigning normalcy, a model student and son. That was until the day you met her. It was autumn, your first semester at college, your first time away from home. She stirred something in you. You took her out, flirted with her, bought her drinks, she was so pure and sweet, so trusting. You left with her, the intoxication swelling inside you both. She tripped, you caught her. You looked at her then. She was so beautiful, so alive. You cut her open. You cut her open because you had to know. Why was she so beautiful? How was she so alive? You cut and cut until she was no longer beautiful, no longer alive. You stared at what you had done, tears in your eyes, not from guilt or remorse, only the pure reflex, as though you knew you should cry, but didn’t understand why. When you came back down to a neutral calm, you disposed of the body, washed yourself of any and all evidence. You knew the first thing you needed to do was establish an alibi. You called up your roommate: “Hey” you said “Wanna hang out tonight?” Your roommate replied “Sure, my friend brought over his Switch, we’re gonna play Smash Ultimate.” You smiled, licking the final traces of viscera from your teeth, and said “Great, I’ll be there in 10.” Kirby: You are Masahiro Sakurai, desperately trying to convince everybody that your favorite boy is best. Put Mappy in the game you fucking cunt. Lucina: You are the comedic straightman of your group. You go through life with two moods, neutrality or exasperation at your louder, more fun friends. Your spirit animal is Squidward and, like Squidward, you are the top sad boy. At least your cats love you. Chrom: You’re the mouthbreathing kind of weeb. You have objectively bad taste. You either want Goku and Sora in Smash, or you want the entire roster replaced with other characters from Fire Emblem. Little Mac: You have a 2 digit IQ, and managing air combat is too much for you. You have eaten at least three Joycons since you started playing Smash. Your go-to excuses for losing are bad recovery moves and the helmet you’re forced to wear falling in front of your eyes. Robin: You have LARPed before. Ironically, considering the game your main comes from, your best friend is a Chrom main. You honestly can do better than hanging out with them, but then you’d have to find a new 4th for your D&D group. Sonic: You’re just a sad person. Either because you’ve got the specific kind of autism that develops in fans of Sonic the Hedgehog, or because you’ll inevitably be lumped in with those people. You know deep down the speed isn’t worth the pain you feel inside. You ask yourself why you keep playing, but you can never come to an answer. You can’t outrun your problems, Sonic main. Pichu: You didn’t know that your attacks did damage to you until someone pointed it out to you, and you didn’t want to look like an idiot, so you pretended like you knew that. In a panic, you came up with some lie about how Pichu is actually really good, and now you’re just sorta stuck with it. Pikachu: You are the boyfriend of a Peach main. You don’t actually like playing Pikachu that much, it’s just that whenever she gets bored playing, she’ll just sit and watch you play, but demand you play as Pikachu because “it’s so cute.” Even when you’re playing with your friends, and you really want to win, you curse yourself and choose Pikachu. Ness: You love Earthbound. You have also never played Earthbound, you just know it by reputation. You also love Undertale, and you probably voted it as game of the year when it came out. You like to think you’re really skilled at Ness, but when things get too hard, you just spam PK Fire and the baseball bat. You’re not impressing anyone. Fox: You played Smash Ultimate for 5 minutes, saw all the items and stages, got mad, and went back to Melee. You’re currently waiting for the Project M version of Ultimate. You get the saltiest out of everyone on the list. You have told someone who doesn’t like Dark Souls to git gud. Duck Hunt: You’re like a Donkey Kong main without the hate, or a Jigglypuff main without the urge to kill. When the Duck Hunt dog laughs at someone for not shooting all the ducks, you feel that on spiritual level. You are probably the happiest person on this list, which makes other people angry, and in turn, only makes you happier. Zelda: You secretly crossdress and are ashamed of it. Within 5 years, you’ll gradually become more and more comfortable with it, until you eventually become a really obnoxious drag queen. Like, the kind that only watches Ru Paul’s Drag Race and nothing else. Regardless, you spam Din’s Fire like a motherfucker, just like everyone else who plays Zelda. Link: You’re boring and suck ass. You play as Oddjob in Goldeneye and use the rocket launcher in Halo. There’s a good chance you’re the least skilled player on the list and don’t even know it. Your favorite skin is the Dark Link skin, because of course it fucking is. R.O.B: You have a video game collection that’s about the cost of a mortgage. You have at least 6 or 7 Game Gears, a fully functional arcade cabinet, and a R.O.B which you brag about whenever you play Smash with new people. If you could have one wish, it would be to work for Nintendo. Snake: You think gamers are the most oppressed minority, and the reason for why Quiet from MGSV is half-naked makes total sense and is genius writing. You respond to news stories about black criminals with something racist, and then cite average IQ scores to defend yourself. If there’s a comment section attached to this list, you’ll leave an angry comment about being called racist. Bowser: You’re a divorced dad in your 40s who bought a Switch to try to win your son’s affections for when he comes over on alternating weekends. You picked Bowser because you thought it would be cute to do Team Smash with him as Bowser and Bowser Jr., but whenever your kid comes over, he only ever plays something called Fortnite. You tried it out, and it was too scary and confusing, so now you just drink and play Smash because at least you recognize the characters. Your ex’s new husband is a better and more attentive lover than you ever will be. Mewtwo: Unlocking Mewtwo in Melee by spending a total of 20 hours in VS matches was the greatest accomplishment of your sad, pathetic life. Conversely, Mewtwo being replaced by Lucario in Brawl was the worst tragedy you have ever experienced. You got the Smash 4 DLC just to bring some meaning back into your life. Out of all the Pokemon mains, you are the only one who is still an avid Pokemon player. You are the most likely person on this list to kill yourself. Ike: You totally go to the gym all the time and drink all those protein shakes. For reals though this faggot is a slow faggot who couldn’t air recover if his life depended on it. Honest to god you might as well just admit your a fagot who just wants to pretend he’s Guts so you can make your peepee big. Or better yet you circlejerk on smashbros about how much Sakurai is biased. Captain Falcon: Loudest player on the list. Will scream Captain Falcon quotes and be one of the most frequent taunters. Is retarded, but only for attention. If anyone in the list is drunk right now, it’s you. If you get a KO with Falcon Punch, you will never shut the fuck up about it. Incineroar: You’re 10. You only picked this character because you picked Litten in Pokemon Sun or Moon. You only picked Litten because it was the Fire starter and you thought Fire was cooler than Grass or Water. Even you think it’s dumb that one of Incineroar’s special moves is a counter. You will either pick a different main or lose all of your friends. Simon: You are roughly 40 years old and racist. Not as racist as the Snake main, but still racist. The “deus vult” kind of racist. Despite this, you have a thing for Asian chicks. You have thought about joining the military at some point. You have unironically used the term “alpha” to describe yourself. Lucario: 75% chance you’re a furry. 20% chance you were a Mewtwo main in Melee and had to make do with Lucario in Brawl. 5% chance you’re really holding out for Goku to be in Smash, and play Lucario because he plays closest to how you imagine Goku would play. Ridley: You are an incredible piece of shit. Now that Ridley is in Smash, the new top characters on your wishlist are Master Hand and Master Chief. You don’t care about balance or thematic consistency, winning or losing, you are simply here to disrupt. You quit the game whenever you’re about to lose. Mr. Game and Watch: Shut the fuck up. You don’t main Mr. Game and Watch. Nobody mains Mr. Game and Watch. You spam B and then do side B whenever somebody gets too close. You first learned about the Game and Watch from Melee just like the rest of us. You’re not special. You’re NOTHING. Pit: You mained him in Brawl back when he was OP, and since he’s been nerfed, all you do is sit in the corner, spamming projectiles and the occasional side B when somebody gets too close. If the match has more than two players, you will guaranteed be the first to die. Wario: The most graceful winner on the list, which is faint praise, because they’re among the saddest in real life. They know they’re pathetic though, and that’s why they don’t get angry about losing. Will either kill themselves one day or die of a heart attack by age 50. Lucas: Even moreso than Ness mains, lies about playing the Mother games. Will do nothing but PK Freeze and PK Thunder. Will never, ever win, and will only ever cost you a victory. If they do manage to win, you’ve either found the top 1% of Smash players, or you’ve started the apocalypse. Ice Climbers: Like Duck Hunt mains, except you aren’t trying to troll anyone intentionally. You will forget how annoying your specials can be right up until after you’ve hit someone with them. Nobody is happy when you win, and you are definitely the least happy out of everyone. You just want everyone to get along. Don’t be such a damn pussy, pussy, you a damn pussy. Villager: You suck ass, but you’re the only one who doesn’t know it. You think Villager is better than he actually is, and you overemphasize how creepy he looks. You are the kind of person who thinks button mashing is a strategy, and that having having no strategy counts as “mind games.” You like creepypastas way too much. Mega Man: You are the least likely person on the list to have had sex, which is good because there’s a 50% chance you’re into little boys. You are also the person on the list who has played an NES game most recently. You complain about the number of characters with swords in the game, but it’s secretly because any decent player who mains one can beat you easily. Will sing along to the theme music whenever on the Wily’s Castle stage. Samus: You are the only one on the list who actively wants all items on. You alternate between spamming your charge shot, and spamming your grab. If you’re good, you will always get first. If not, you will always die first and bitch about it. Nobody knows who invited you over, but everyone secretly wishes you weren’t here. Dark Samus: You mained Samus and always picked her dark suit skin before Ultimate. Not even you asked for this character to be in Smash, and even you couldn’t really explain how they’re different from Dark Samus. When you tell someone you play Smash and they ask who your main is, you forget Dark Samus exists for a minute before telling them. Yoshi: There’s a 50% chance you are an actual child. If you’re not a child, then you either only play Smash for fun, or you are the best player on the list. Either way, it makes you among the saddest people on the list. You’re a good sport for the entire game, right up until you win by spitting them out as an egg right on the edge of the map. Wii Fit Trainer: You’re not actually good at Smash, you’re just good at improvising. You’re playing the game on the fly and just so happen to be lucking out every time you use the volley ball. There is a bone in your brain that compels you to yell “SALUTE THE SUN!” at least once per game. You definitely want to fuck the Wii Fit Trainer. Luigi: You are a down-to-earth, lovable loser who thinks Mario is too normal or obvious a choice. You legitimately find Luigi’s moves and animations to be funny and probably still laugh at Adam Sandler movies. Whenever you win a game, you take forever to press start just because you want to watch his victory pose for as long as possible. If you ever win with the kick taunt, then everybody you know literally hates you. Sheik: You are on both the LGBT and autism spectrums. You also have a Tumblr account. You met all of your friends online and have never talked to them in real life. You are unable to talk and play at the same time. You are probably really good at the game, but are still a sore loser, and will likely be the first to rage quit. Dr. Mario: You are a hipster that only picked Dr. Mario becomes nobody mains him. You pretend like you’ve always mained him, even though you used to main Link, and thought “why the fuck is Dr. Mario a character” when you saw him in Melee, just like the rest of us. You think it’s really cool that his side smash has lightning coming out of his hand but will never admit it. Richter: You embody all the negative traits of a Simon main, except you’re half as old and not OPENLY racist. Instead, you’re just really into metal and think you’re way more badass than you actually are. You own a Punisher t-shirt and have taken a picture of yourself posing with an assault rifle. You have the smallest dick out of everyone on the list. Diddy Kong: Your play style is the strategic equivalent of an infant slapping at a control. You will use the same move over an over again until it stops being effective, at which point you simply move onto a new one. You are the worst person to lose to. You will wake up one day realizing everybody hates you and not know why. This. This is why. Cloud: You only picked Cloud because you were excited to see him get added to Smash. You also will freely admit that fact with no shame whatsoever. You are the Chrom main’s only other friend besides the Robin main. You both bond over your love of anime boys and desire for Sora to be playable in Smash. You are easily the gayest player on the list. Mii Fighters: Either you’re playing as your actual Mii, in which case you have the lowest functioning level of autism on the list and are taking the game seriously, or you’re playing as a joke Mii, in which case you are guaranteed to have a fun time. It doesn’t matter either way, because you’ve never won a single game of Smash in your entire life. Roy: You’re like the Marth main, except you were also the kind of kid who had serious anger issues and screamed swear words at people in class when you were mad. You picked Roy over Marth because his special moves had fire. If Snake were playable in Melee, you would’ve picked him as your main. Olimar: You are the only person on the list who has ever played one of the Pikmin games all the way through. You are an eldritch abomination whose schemes and machinations are unknowable by man. You are the only one boring enough to pay attention to damage types. The ultimate irony of your playstyle is that you will die alone. Greninja: You are also 10. Your best friend is the Incineroar main, at least for now. If you don’t currently watch Naruto, you’re going to get way too into it very soon. You will make excuses and get salty every time you get hit, but you will brag and act like you’re the ultimate chessmaster every time you land a hit. You insist on playing with Final Smashes and no other items. Dark Pit: You’re right in the middle of a venn diagram between Ike main and Greninja main. You’re 13 years old. Everything you do and think is cool right now, you will look back on with embarrassment when in 5 years time. Unless you have actual autism, in which case you’ll never have a moment of self-realization. Instead, you’ll make really bad fan art of your favorite video game and cartoon characters. Ignorance is bliss. Toon Link: You are only the tiniest bit better than the Link main, and yet inexplicably aren’t nearly as hated as them. Lying comes as easily to you as breathing, and you do so without any semblance of guilt. You have a career in politics, Palutena: You pick your main in every game based on waifu status, and your playstyle is finding one combo you like and spamming it repeatedly. You play Skyrim with a mod that lets you play as a big-titted anime lady. You say you prefer subtitled anime to English dubs, but you actually don’t. Your taste in music is shit. Ryu: You’re insecure about playing a kid’s game and refuse to play as any characters that are cartoony, female, or a prettyboy. You won’t ever actually buy a Switch, because Nintendo is for babies, but you’ll still play it with your bros, because you’re the guy who calls people “bro.” You’re only playing as Ryu until they put in Goku or Master Chief. Ken: You’re confused about your sexuality and compensate for it by making overtly sexual statements and calling them jokes. You probably shit talk the most out of everyone else playing. You go to the gym just so you can talk about going to the gym. Bowser Jr. You’re one of the biggest Nintendo fanboys on the list, and got really excited when you saw that all of the other skins for Bowser Jr. were the Koopalings. You pretend like you know all of their names, but there’s always 1 or 2 that you keep forgetting. You can see what they look like in your mind but you can’t remember their name. You know they were all named after different musicians, but that doesn’t help you remember their names, because you know even less about the musicians than you do the characters, because the only thing you’re really knowledgeable about is pointless minutia about video games, and even now you’re proving how little impact that knowledge has on your life. If Nintendo did an NES Classic type deal for the N64 or the Gamecube, you would pay thousands of dollars for them, even though you’ve already got both consoles. Isabelle: You’re a mom that doesn’t actually play video games, you’re just doing this because your kid wanted somebody to play with. You picked the dog because she was cute. You’re either accidentally too good at the game, kick your kid’s ass, and make them cry, or you suck so hard that you’re actually less fun to fight against than the CPU. In 3 years, your kid will have moved on to FPS’ and you’ll look back on Smash with a mix of nostalgia and sadness, because your kid doesn’t want to play with you any more. You read James Patterson books, love win, and masturbate in the shower. Rosalina & Luma: You play the piano, harvest bull semen, or do something else outside of video games that requires two hands. You’re also big into RTS games. Something about controlling legions of forces, sending hundreds to their deaths, having so much power at your disposal awakens something deep inside of you. Even you leave off the “& Luma” part when talking about the character. Young Link: You are the token girl of a group of guys. Every single one of them wants to fuck you because you’re an average-looking girl who likes video games. You will be oblivious to all of it, and date some guy outside of your friend group. Half of them will start to resent you. All of them will be waiting for the opportunity to catch you at a vulnerable moment and have a one night stand with you. It will inevitably happen. It will be with the least shit guy of the group (which isn’t saying much) and ruin most of your interpersonal relationships. You also spend way too much money at conventions. Ganondorf: You are also the token girl of a group of guys, but you’re also a fat, butch lesbian. You try way too hard to be one of the guys, chug beers even though everybody else is drinking like normal, and you very blatantly burp and fart. You will continue to act like this into your 40s at which point your hair will be gray and permanently styled in a faux hawk. Despite all this, you will have the hottest wife out of everyone on this list. Zero Suit Samus: You picked her so you could play as her two-piece skin and masturbate with the screen paused, didn’t you? King K. Rool: You were the kind of kid who ate paste and would always demand first choice of characters because it was your birthday. You use the most OP options in any game but will say that something is unfair when it beats you. The only reason we’re letting you play with us is because mom says have to, and you’ll tell on us if we don’t. Shulk: You have an annoying voice. You don’t eat gluten, even though you don’t have any food allergies. You think all FPS games are stupid except for Overwatch. You use Tumblr slang in real life and have to ship every fictional character you come across. You’ve cried more recently than anyone else on the list, and you literally can’t even right now. Falco: You’re like a Fox main with less autism. In some ways, however, you are much worse than them. When you aren’t using Falco’s blaster to make enemies flinch, you’re telling women to kill themselves on the Internet. You are the guy who goes to the bar to go after women with low self-esteem. You definitely yell the N word during heated gaming moments. Pac-Man: You are the antithesis of the Mario main, and the type of person who always want to have new “experiences.” You will date a teenager and defend it to your friends by saying “age is just a number.” You also cheat on your partners and then act like you were the victim because you were “suffocating” by being expected to be monogamous. Your favorite food is some weird kind of pizza or burger that’s named after an Arcade Fire song and only available at a local restaurant whose name is a pun. Piranha Plant: Some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn. Joker: You decided you would main this character before you ever played them because you love JRPGs so much. You say “u mad bro?” to annoy people even though you have the worst anger management of anyone on the list. You unironically liked the game “Hatred” and will switch to Doomguy if he gets put in Smash. Random: You’re pretty cool.

2020.09.18 02:20 LaneTaxation Vengen, the Forge Initiate (September 2020 CCC) Brittle Theme

Vengen, the Forge Initiate (September 2020 CCC) ~ Brittle Theme

“Don’t push me around, or you’ll get a fight you never wanted!” ~ Vengen
(Inspiration – He is the Robin to Ornn’s Batman… and also lightly inspired by Rambo)

Champion Information
Race: Yordle - and looks like a mini-Ornn
Role: Marksman, Bot Lane, Jungle?
Secondary Attributes:
Mana Ranged Physical
Weapon:
Automatic hand crossbow (his idle animation shows him crafting more crossbow bolts)
Gameplay:
Vengen is intended to partner perfectly with Ornn, but also plays similarly to Caitlin when alone. Vengen’s Q serves as his wave clear action, but also initiates his overall set up thanks to adding brittle. His W sets up traps to restrict his opponent’s movements, just like Caitlin. However, his traps spring a cage similar in size to Veigars, so it can catch multiple enemies and he can deal extra damage if he uses his Q against it. His E is a high-risk, high-reward crowd control option, he must be close to use it, but once he attaches to an opponent, he is untargettable and can control their movements, forcing them to stand on his traps! His ultimate gives him a powerful mountable turret to blow away enemies, or block off exits.
When partnered with Ornn, both his cage and turret are considered terrain which either Ornn can charge and set up an engage, or Vengen can explode for additional damage.A standard combo would be: Q – E (into a trap) – auto – auto – Q the trap.
Base Stats
Health 510 - 2091 Mana 313.7 – 908.7
Health Regen 3.5 – 12.85 Mana Regen 7.4 – 16.75
Armor 28.3 – 87.8 Magic Resist 30 – 38.5
Attack Damage 57 – 114.8 Crit. Damage 200%
Attack Range 525 Attack Speed .625
Move Speed 325
Abilities:
Passive – Inspired Forge
Innate: Vengen increases bonus attack damage and bonus magic attack by 10% from all sources
Innate – Learning the Trade: Vengen can purchase non-consumable items that cost 500 gold or less from anywhere on the field by crafting it himself, and is also presented a Craft Menu with his recommended items to select to be crafted. Crafting takes 2.5 seconds and the process is interrupted if Vengen enters combat. Items crafted in this way cost no gold, provide 25% stronger stats, but only last 10 seconds before breaking. Vengen must wait 20 seconds after an item breaks before being able to craft another item.Innate – Work of Art: When Vengen reaches level 13, any upgradable Masterwork item Vengen owns or purchases for the rest of the game is upgraded for free (maximum 1). Masterwork items can be seen on Ornn’s masterwork item list. This Masterwork item does not break.
Innate – Inspired charge: Vengen gains 5% increased movement speed for 3 seconds after crafting an item. This bonus becomes permanent once Vengen crafts a Masterwork item.
Q - Demolitions Satchel
Mana Cost: 40/45/50/55/60 Cooldown: 6.5/6/5.5/5/4.5
ACTIVE: Vengen throws an explosive satchel at a target location damaging a small area. Those caught within the blast radius are applied brittle for 3.5 seconds. Demolitions Satchel causes bonus physical damage(+20% AD) (+30% AP) if any terrain is caught in the blast. Demolitions Satchel will remove any champion made terrain and temporarily remove certain natural terrain found in the jungle for 5 seconds (Any terrain that Kindred/Talon can jump over can be temporarily removed).
Damage (Physical) 50/80/110/140/170 (+60% AD) (+75% AP)
Range 900
Blast Radius 325
W - Now You’re Mine!
Mana Cost: 30 + 1 charge Static Cooldown: 2 seconds Cast Time: 1 second
Passive: Vengen periodically stocks a Shoddy Cage, up to a maximum amount.
Active: Vengen sets a visible untargetable trap at the target location, lasting for a duration. After setting up the maximum amount of traps, setting up another immediately destroys the oldest one.
When an enemy champion steps on the trap, a Shoddy Cage drops down around them, restricting their movement to a small area and revealing them. The Shoddy Cage falls apart after a duration. Shoddy Cage counts as champion made terrain.
Range 100
Maximum Cages 1 / 2 / 2 / 3 / 3
Trap duration (unsprung) 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 / 45
Trap duration (sprung) 2.25 / 2.25 / 2.75 / 2.75 / 3.25
Cage Radius 375
E - All Out Assault!
Mana Cost: 80/85/90/95/100 Mana Cooldown: 28/26/24/22/20
Active: Vengen assaults a target enemy by hopping onto their head, biting, punching, scratching, all in a frenzy, dealing damage ever .2 seconds. Vengen is untargetable (except for turrets) while on a target, they are slowed by 50%, unable to act, and Vengen can control their movement. At the end of the effect, Vengen will hop 350 units in the direction he last made his target move.
Damage per tick 5.7/7.7/9.15/10.25/10.75 (+20% AD)
Duration 1.4/1.55/1.75/1.95/2.25
Range 180
R – Now, THIS is a Turret!
Cost: 100 Cooldown: 100/80/60
Active: Vengen deploys a mountable turret that lasts until destroyed or will fall apart 2 seconds after running out of ammo. Upon activating, Vengen will automatically mount the turret. Ammo is represented by a separate bar which is depleted by holding down R and firing in a straight line towards a targeted location. Ammo can last 3.5 seconds of sustained firing. Those caught in the firing line sustain damage every .2 seconds. The turret does +5% True Damage to those with the brittle debuff.
While mounted, Vengen is untargetable until the turret is destroyed. The turret spans a 225 unit diameter and counts as impassable terrain.
Damage per Tick 35 / 48 / 61 (+10% AD)
Range 1600
Health 500 / 675 / 850 (+25% AP)
Background:
Vengen is an orphaned Yordle of parents who were merchants/inventors, and descendants of the Hearthblood. After losing his parents, Vengen made a chance encounter with the demi-god of the forge, Ornn. Impressed by Vengen’s resolve and skills in crafting, and against his better judgement, Ornn decides to take on Vengen as his apprentice – to help forge a man out of this… fur-goblin. Vengen is a product of collateral damage caused by the Avarosan and the Winter’s Claw, and though he didn’t start the fight, he’s determined to end it. Ornn simply wants to temper that rage into something better, so that he doesn’t make the same mistake he did.
Lore:
Vengen was born to traveling merchant/ inventor parents. Sadly, while traveling the Freljord, his traveling camp were attacked by members of the Winter’s Claw who thought they were dealing arms to the Avarosan. Vengen only survived because his parents hid him away. However, once the massacre was over, Vengen lost himself in rage and pain. He picked up whatever rations, weapons and contraptions of his parents he could find and went out into the cold seeking revenge. Even with the rage burning in his chest and eyes, time would not be on his side.
The cold snow of Freljord soon covered the tracks of the fleeing Winter’s Claw. Vengen continued pursuing for over three days, before cold and exhaustion overcame him at the base of a mountain. As fortune would have it, Ornn had taken a break from his forge and came out of his lair, as he became accustomed to on one specific day: the anniversary of Hearth-Home’s destruction. This was the day he would always come out, to look over the slopes of the forgotten Hearth-Home, so that at least one person would remember – himself. This tradition simultaneously pained him and gave him solace. A reminder to himself that his actions have consequences, even those with good intentions. He would let the ghosts of the past remind him of their stories, and let them live just for one day more… Except, this day he was greeted by more than ghosts. He saw a tiny yordle, anger billowing on his face, trekking up the slopes until succumbing to the cold. Even more – on the back of the Yordle’s cloak, there lied the symbol of the Hearthblood. The last thing Vengen remembered before passing out was a loud horn, and some bright red light off in the distance approaching him quickly. Vengen remembered thinking, “I came out hunting them, but in the end they just hunted me.” But to his surprise, when he awoke Vengen found himself in what looked to be a blacksmith’s foundry and an enormous - “Goat-yordle!” He screamed.
“Goat-yordle?” Ornn huffed, steam escaping his disapproving nostrils.
CHANGE LOG:
  1. Added Race information at the top. Some of his abilities didn't make sense without pre-knowledge that he's a yordle (E).
  2. E damage changed from one time initial damage, to multiple damage over time of the effect.
  3. Added dimension of R turret.
  4. Added E range.

2020.09.16 06:25 mermetermaid I finished my very first viewing of Cheers this week, and just started watching Frasier to fill the void! Spoilery finale thoughts below.

First of all, I loved feeling like I was a regular at a bar when I was in fact, home... the entire time I watched the show. Between Cheers and Animal Crossing, quarantine + smoke lockdown has had some really decent moments thanks to the gang at Cheers.
I loved the Diane years the best, but really I loved the years with Coach more than anything. Each character has their own purpose, and I know the Sam & Diane plot was a driving force for the series, but Coach brought an earnestness and heart to the show which was lacking in some moments in the final years. Woody was brought in to share the same style of humor, but the wisdom was traded for innocence, and that plays differently.
I absolutely loved Cheers, and I’ll be watching it with my regular sitcom favorites forever; but there were a few things that I wish had been different.
I thought that Norm fucking up a job he’d be great for (beer tasting) was really, really sad, and not funny. Why couldn’t he have gotten something coincidentally good?
I wanted Rebecca to actually, slowly fall in love with someone for more than a few short episodes, after watching her be used by her evil rich ex fiancée Robin for years.
I think that Sam and Diane should have ended up together; having taken many years apart to grow, they still had their moments, but I think they cared for each other, and could have made it work for real this time. I haven’t seen much of Frasier, so I know there will probably be some stuff to come.
I wanted to see a situation where Carla took over the bar, either as a manager, or even just as another bartender; it would have been a better fit for her than serving people in a waitress capacity. Theoretically she’d be paid more, and they’d have an opening for a waitress....
...which should have/could have been Diane. I literally was expecting this to happen somehow- Diane walks back into Cheers in the finale, successful, moving back to Boston, and ordering a drink, like in the pilot. They work things out, and she spends time writing and helping wait tables or something as in a family business, not just as a job to get by.
I appreciate the perspective that the bar was always going to be Sam’s “one true love” but we spent so much time watching Sam crave intimacy, and a partner and a family, and watching him close up shop alone, with everyone else going home to their families felt so sad to me.
I kept thinking that if he didn’t wind up with Diane, he’d meet a really great person in an unexpected way (like... hmm, the widow and the car situation!) and have the solid, happy relationship that he wanted, in Boston, while still owning and running Cheers, but... it didn’t happen. Oh well.
Regardless of my finale feelings, it was an excellent show and I’m happy that Frasier exists, too. :)

2020.09.16 05:06 RedPharaoh17 Golden knights superlatives

On a lighter note, I was wondering if any of you have some witty superlatives about certain golden knights players like what Jimmy Fallon does. I have a few below to start off.
Ryan Reeves is most likely to hold the door open for you, but if you don't say thank you, he silently writes your name on a list for no apparent reason.
Mark Stone is most likely to star in a home alone movie as the smart villain who actually knows what he is doing but fails because of his dumb partner in crime.
Zach Whitecloud is most likely to get Id'd in his 40s.
Robin Lehner is most likely to be that one creepy neighbor who keeps to himself but when he invites you over, you discover he is actually a huge party animal with a fancy bar and football table in his basement.

2020.09.15 00:52 Sanity0004 Rivals III from a first time viewer.(Part 11: Jesus, I didn't think my hate for Johnny could go any higher)

I'll be honest. I'm not exactly looking forward to Rivals. What I would call Rivalry's, or worthy of calling a rivalry, have been either pretty tame or pretty rare. The season's have been on a pretty downward spin with the casting being low caliber and not much competition when it comes to actual challenges.
Anyways, this is my eleventh go-around, if you want to check out my thoughts on other seasons check out my submissions. As I get close to caught up with CBS All Access I'm thinking more and more about a finale type post to follow the seasons of a whole bunch of rankings and thoughts on the show overall as I was going through it. If you have any ideas for random rankings you'd like to see that I might not have thought of, just let me know in the comments.
EP 1:
Wes and Bananas this time around?
Fucking Vince...
It's weird they're listing "championships" with the confessionals? Bananas has 5?
Johnny Reilly is back again? Didn’t Exes prove that he was worthless and got lucky with his first season?
I'm actually surprised Nany has only been on five seasons. It feels like more.
They brought Christina back after one episode? What? just because she hooked up with someone immediately?
Sarah's back? I honestly thought she was done the way she was talking on Exes.
Johnny saying someone else is playing dirty is hilarious. Only because it was against him.
Well this Ashley chick looks like a fucking wreck.
I'm fine with seeing Kellyanne again.
Jenna again! They really see more out of her than I do.
Kinda surprised to see Avery and Jessica back. Those are two people I didn't expect to see again.
Fucking Dario, guess we know Vince's rival.
Thomas, Cory, and Leroy. Ok, I'm honestly not hating this cast so far.
Thom now changes the story to making out. Fitting with the narrative Cara was pushing lmao
I'm not hating the rookies either. This cast has potential.
Nicole, Jamie and Vince walked in. I changed my mind. Well we needed some fodder I guess. I can't wait to see Vince prove he's the worst.
I'm so goddamn tired of Johnny's speeches.
I'm not liking how many people of Johnny's inner circle there are this season. Camila, Nany, Vince, Leroy, Johnny, Jenna, who knows how many other ties he made in the off season or how the rivals of those people will feel. I feel like Johnny would be the quenticiential pregamer. Any time anyone even has the potential of getting on the show I feel like he's probably chatting them up and trying to get friendly with them before the show even starts.
Jenna's butt has returned to the screen after being absent for a season. Nicole's cartoon makeup has returned.
These AYTO people are dumb lmao, trying to talk strategy right by the pool in front of everyone haha These fucks have no chance. I don't know what this AYTO show is but they need to stop looking to it for casting.
You don't jump, you don't get on the season. Make it the rule!
Is Sarah's rival Johnny? Are they doing a guy/girl rivals?
"Mexico's an island right?" I remember why Jenna is here.
Was honestly anticipating Wes and Johnny being forced to work together. I'd be fine with opposite sex rivals if they did something similar to Bloodlines of the two teams structure. Think there was a lot of potential there that got screwed by so many early exits that forced alliances so quickly.
The lengths they go to fill these 'rivalries' is hilarious. "He disrespected your little sister...one night...the first day of the previous season."
Say any negative word about someone in a confessional one time. Producers: "Such rivalry!"
The first time Wes gets a female partner that isn't terrible? Better than Mandi and Casey at least.
Cory and Ashley seems like a trainwreck waiting to happen.
I kinda like this Briana chick.
Johnny is really stuck on the red hair and freckles
Jessica is cute as hell, but her mouth is sooooooo damn big.
Leroy tries to calm down Simone for a single second and then walks away like "nevermind" hilarious.
Fucking Tony
Ashley gets turned on by people fighting.
"Smashley" Ok Cory is pretty funny.
This season is actually off to a pretty good start.
Like the top tiny section of this house looks like it's the same size as the first Fresh Meat house all together lol These houses just get bigger and bigger. Least it's not a bunch of bunk beds this season.
They only have like 4 different color jerseys this season? Couldn't try for more disparity?
Oh Nicole's makeup....oh oh oh. Girl...
Jessica's fall was scary as hell, Nicole fell like 5 inches.
I have a feeling this challenge isn't regulated by height like Survivor does. Nany didn't even have to let go of the side rail to grab the first skull, and here Simone is struggling to even get the first lmao
Vince overcoming his challenge terrible-ness on the first challenge? This will just completely inflate his ego.
Sarah being Johnny's best partner? I feel like Camila and Sarah would be a pretty good comparison. I think Camila is underrated.
Johnny just throwing it because Vince won and he gets a chance to let Sarah fall. Sounds just like Johnny.
Camila is a badass, I just think her partner is going to end up sucking.
I'm predicting Johnny/Jessica being first Eliminated. No matter who their contender is. Johnny showed on Exes he was bad.
Man, we're getting to the point where even premieres don't have a full challenge and elimination in them without getting a to be continued?!
EP 2:
Episode starts with “Champ is here” yeah definitely doing wonder for Vinces ego
Sounds like Leroy has a bruised tailbone
I really don’t want to see Johnny R again. Please go. You suck, a Bananas puppet and you got second by almost pure luck.
“Super twisty!” What a tease! /s
I actually like Leroy but would like him more if he wasn’t dumb and best buds with Bananas
Everyone keeps trying to talk about this skydiving
haha shut up
“The little sex cops” ok I’m a Jenna fan
Tony not taking any advice at all and not taking it slow at all.
Tony, still a mess confirmed.
At least Jess is calling things off before anything happens unlike Cara.
Leroy No! That’s a bummer.
Silver lining is it hurts Johnny's numbers.
Oh shit. Two pairs going in? So much for telling that rookie couple they were safe haha
Oh stuck with their word. Good for them. Would have been a second easy pick.
Inner rookie drama is least interesting drama
Cory is so damn horny for this girl.
All these times Johnny is seeing Jessica go home. Know what he’s not seeing? Johnny, doing anything other than a final.
Bananas losing Leroy and Johnny in the first go would be a dream come true lol
Darn! Jess carried Johnny to a win.
“I understand the nuances now.” Dude you’re going first after like 3 days here you learned nothing.
EP 3:
Replacements? Hmmm
Please send in Abram and Cara! Haha
Smashley looks smashed and trashed.
Good god. Watching Camila of all people trying to rationalize with a crazy drunk is giving me life right now haha
Smashley about to hulk smash haha “piss in your pants bitch!”
I’m kinda liking Cory a lot so far this season.
Hahahahaha she goes to Jamie afterwards and asks HIM why HE is pissed?!? Hahaha
“You don’t want people to talk about you, don’t give them something to talk about” Simone, girl, preach!
It’s going to be nobody again isn’t it? TJ turning around and looking like he’s trying to find them just seems like peak bad TJ acting.
More rookies? That was a let down. I would have rather had no one.
Oh the elim winner picks order. Interesting change that I’m ok with.
This challenge reminds me so much of the older school style of challenges. I’m all for that.
“I’ve been practicing with Jamie all week.” I puked in my mouth a bit.
Wes looks tired instantly. He coming in a bit out of shape?
Why is she moaning? Hahahaha
Maybe the funniest challenge.
Oh never mind Wes is being smart.
What the hell kinda quesadilla is spicy? Simones asshole feels like a spicy quesadilla...
I don’t like the game getting more twisty!
Every time I get just a tiny glimpse of Christina I either think Casey or Melinda is on the season. She’s like a weird amalgamation of the two.
Johnny trashing Wes and Simone defending him lol
“I carried her ass to the end” you were gone like fifth what are you talking about? Lmao
“I would have never done that.” I would have had Leroy or Jenna/Jay do it for me. So I can still claim I was loyal.
Wes looking at the camera and saying “this happens all the time” after Simone walks away mad is fucking hilarious.
This Tony dude is always getting in arguments with girls. There is something with him. Always.
All this fighting because he asked what season of a show she was from lol
EP 4:
This season going fast. I’m enjoying the hell out of this season so far.
I haven’t said it yet but I’m kind of shocked Jamie is back. That dude was literally invisible last season. Every time he appeared on screen I was confused for like 3 minutes pricing together who he was.
Simone going home with a torn butthole is a new one.
“How is a butthole going to send me home?!”
Nicole is so much cuter without all the makeup. Quit it chick!
They really went all out in this house party. Dang.
Here comes Camilinater!
Camila, you could just approach it calmly and say no that didn’t happen and then try to see who said it. But to flip out right away just comes off as defensive.
“I’m going home” this is not the Camila I know. Now she’s crying? You’re really taking on the Robin vibes as of late.
Kellyanne, you can’t keep saying be quiet and trying to be quiet and not seeming suspicious.
It’s on its way to getting resolved and Nicole calls Camila crazy lol good people skills
I’m glad these rookies don’t seem to awful this season.
Haha I love how these rookie AYTO players are having a meeting talking about allegiances and Wes is just quietly in the middle of them barely even being shown on camera lol
Arguing about which show is better haha
“You’re on a dating show! Shut the fuck up!” Lol
This new freckle chick is coming in wanting to get under everyone’s skin. If only she was good at challenges she’d be my new favorite cast member.
Since when do they have security?!?!
I think Camila just wants to kiss the freckle girl. Lol
Quittin bitch! I was liking Brianna. Jennas cousins namesake didn’t not chew bugs and end up finishing the final for you to quit on another girl named Brianna the following season because you had a case of the sads. How dare you!
So many people standing there look like they want to punch the dude lol
I feel like Brianna could be back.
I feel like Johnny and Wes are working together this season on the sly. They’re always close together during the comps talking and when Reilly got to decide order he put Wes in the second group.
Oh oh oh Ashley got caught on a rope or something. Wow that’s definitely a production fuck up. Ouch.
At least Dario isn’t talking as much shit this season.
How are you gonna end on a cliffhanger on Camilas normal looking fall when Smashley looked like she was about to lose a damn arm?!
EP 5:
Tony sucks. I feel bad for Camila lol
Amanda the new mouth of the house? Talks shit and falls right away.
God I hate everyone names Johnny.
Please be reilly/Jessica please please please.
Yes!!!
Please get eliminated now.
Smashley it’s probably not a good idea to tell your partner you want to throw in his number one ally lol
Camila flipping out from someone playing the he said she said game and then turning around and playing the he said she said game lol
I feel like this is being said to possibly sway smashley/Cory to not vote any vets in elim but the editing isn’t doing it justice.
“You know why you ripped your ass?! Cause you’re a weak ass!!” Line of the season.
“Just go back to....hell bitch” phew that was close. Held my breath for a second.
I don’t know how the sliding glass doors on this show don’t break. They get slammed every season constantly.
EP 6:
“Who? Her?” No, Cory, Camila is drunkenly yelling at you two about someone else…
“Literally never have I wanted someone and NOT gotten with that person.” What a weird creepy ass thing to say Devin…
Damn Smashley, Yeah Simone was so in the wrong saying Jamie shouldn’t trust her lol
Not really a mini final, but this challenge of completing tasks and climbing repeated walls sounds great.
Brains or balls, way to start.
Did Vince seriously just smash the brain and basically smush it against his face barely actually getting any in his mouth?
Everyone puking, Jamie just calmly chewing.
I swear Vince just basically cheated that eating part. He literally smashed it up and had like half of it plastered to his hand and just shows his empty mouth and walks on.
With the size of that rope you really think the lasso choice wouldn’t be that hard.
Camila with tries on her head and on each arm. Never let it be understated that Camila is kind of a beast.
They took the wrong mattress haha
Jeez, Wes and Nany seem so far behind.
Now someone loses their token? Lol I love this challenge.
Eat cake, or go naked….wow
“This is not a good day to be a ginger.”
I’m so tired of hearing Johnny whine about this shit.
Literally two seasons of Johnny fucking over friends, but please, lets whine about the one time you got screwed over by a friend two seasons ago.
Devin comes up like “You need me to bend over too?”
Wants to throw in Wes. We just ignoring the long history of being outside friends with Nany? Not even going to talk about who Wes’ partner is? Just putting in Wes, that’s all that’s said lol of course. Fucking over friends at the end to get money, jesus christ that’s wrong! Fucking over a friend simply because their partner is a nemesis? Easy peasy. I feel like MTV and the editors are literally helping Johnny just shy away from his faults or issues. That Nany is never referenced or even talked about?
For all the time Wes was the hot head, he always seems to be the first on the scene of trying to break fights up or stop them from happening.
You get a pass, you get a pass. Everyone gets a pass!
Oh shit, Tony and Camila.
Camila, you didn’t do it on purpose, but it was clearly asked multiple times did anyone grab one that wasn’t theirs. You had the chance to bring it up. You remember it so clearly suddenly?
Surprised Johnny even spoke the name Nany. Isn’t that a friend Johnny?
Camila still bitching. You had multiple times to bring up that you picked it up and you didn’t. “Emotional abuse.” hahaha
Wait...Camila and Tony are Wes’ number one alliance?
Pulling an audible and leaving it up to the skulls to determine safety?
Every skull pull has had the three white skulls pulled first.
EP 7:
Oh Tony, you’re going down a bad road. Step away slowly.
Devin, drunk and blowing his game? Lol
Kellyanne coming in with a stinger “Shouldn’t you be home?”
If precedence means anything, Cory will get a pass.
Producers actually breaking up an argument seems weird lol A fight? Yeah, obviously. But producers telling Devin to stop antagonizing Cory and people, seems weird.
Angry drunkenness everywhere.
Nany seems out of it, and they get a single one lol
Yeah, Smashley seems like someone that would drive a car through a house.
Nate and Christina seemed to grab red and yellow by basically just falling on the poles.
That….can’t be a valid run lmao Kellyanne and Jamie just basically walked off the platform
I wanted to know what the tiebreaker would have been.
Camila handled the social situation by basically coming out and saying “All teams matter” lmao “Yes I took your token, but what happened to us was unfair too!”
Not gonna lie, I’m liking Nelson and freckle chick. Coming straight down to eat and saying don’t fuck around, throw in the vets!
Camila is seriously trash at even attempting to accept any kind of blame lmao
They throw in the only two people going to them and saying not to be stupid? You idiots throw in other damn rookies? You idiots.
Freckle girl talking truth. These people will slit your throat the next week. TJ asked if anyone took the token and they didn’t say a peep.
Finally the black skull is actually pulled.
Ice baths make a return! You couldn’t put it in a freezer? Challenge going bitch mode confirmed.
Jamie and Kellyanne as a collective may actually be dumber than Jenna. Jenna has actually completely disappeared from the last couple episodes.
I spoke too soon about Jenna disappearing. Random confessional basically calling Jamie/Kellyanne dumb.
“My weiner hurts.” “You call it a weiner?”
These wood blocks are going to need to be used to make boxes or something. THe rookies seem completely unfazed by the water.
Kellyanne and Jamie win by copying. Bummer.
I kind of liked freckle chick who I can never remember her name. Nelson seemed kind of invisible.
EP 8:
Lot more partying this season than the last couple I feel.
I don’t know what it is, but Cory and Cheyanne seem so boring. THey keep seeming to build it up, but it’s repetitive and just kinda goes nowhere?
Tony really just seems to have problems with females in general. That’s basically all he gets in arguments with, and always has issues with. He gets drunk and then rants and raves about women.
I think I hate Vince more than Johnny lol At least Johnny is interesting for the game.
Johnny going to get Tony to shut Camila up. What in the fuck kind of psychological fucking warfare is this?! That’s literally just trash. You’re the dude who has a long fucking history with the chick, and you go grab the guy who has fought with her all season and tells her to shut her up.
Now Tony is literally in Camila’s face and pinning her to the wall? I’m sure Johnny will catch nothing for this…
Johnny just conveniently invisible when shit blows up.
Oh shit.. Producers asking if he remembers being woken up? They’re acknowledging that he was PLACED in that situation?
His warning wasn’t acknowledged when Cory went at Devin? Seems sus…
I seriously can’t understate how shitty Johnny was in this situation. He literally just used oil to, in his words, “put out a fire” and basically put a long time friend in a really shitty situation and then just disappears while shit hits the fan.
Damn, Smashley still has big as scars under her arms from the ropes in that challenge.
“One can argue, I’m a little responsible” Fuck off Johnny, you knew full fucking well what you were doing.
I would fully believe Tony has some domestic violence calls in his history or future.
I love the spur of the moment things like this. Keep them on their toes.
I am all for this challenge. Basically just endurance and will. They’ve all but eliminated these types of challenges in Big Brother and Survivor purely for time and scheduling.
“A thousand dollars, that means a thousand cheeseburgers, I need that money!”
They’re going to ask questions about their interruptions, I just know it and I absolutely love it.
“I think it’s only been an hour and I’m already going crazy” (Ten minutes later) I’m assuming this was some kind of editing mess up and they actually meant only ten minutes have elapsed and it’s making fun of Jenna thinking it’s been an hour. Because otherwise the ten minutes later was pointless and nothing happened afterward.
Smashley of all people queueing in on picking up the details? Kind of surprising.
We don’t get enough of Wes’ sense of humor.
Hope it’s not crucial that you know that number was definitely NOT on the gas tank lol
Vince, you weird creepy fuck. I’m just going to take this opportunity of being on a box with a girl to need to hang on her and touch her as much as possible.
Christina like 5 hours in thinking about paying attention just now…
I hate Bananas, but I can’t help but have respect for a guy that instantly evokes David Bowie in Labyrinth when a guy comes out doing some fushigi shit with a glass ball.
OK Johnny doing TJ impressions is great.
I feel like Jenna is going to come in and Rainman this shit lmao
Awww you end just as it gets to the actual puzzle? Damn you.
EP 9:
Dario a dumbass? Shocker
Actually surprised by Sarah and Bananas winning, the way it was edited made it seem like Sarah was paying attention to the wrong details.
Jeesh, it comes down to Wes/Nany and Nicole/Dario.
Why are they just sitting there doing nothing?!
Bananas saying they want Nicole/Dario to lose so they can vote in Wes makes no real sense. If they vote them in they have a chance to pull white skulls and not even go into the elim. Wouldn’t you want a better chance of them going home?
Oh yay, Johnny gets to take his cousin on a trip.
I seriously can’t take the daily check ins with Sarah and Johnny repairing their bullshit.
Sarah being gaslighted in to thinking she “stole” a win from Johnny, and now wants to “pay him back” is fucking depressing. It’s like her working with Kenny in Fresh Meat 2, after she got bullied endlessly in Ruins, all over again.
Of any boat trip to be on, this would be my absolute last choice.
Jamie and Kellyanne whining about not being selected lmao
Kellyanne talking fucking facts! Amen!!! “Johnny will never throw a guy friend under the bus, but he will throw any girl friends name out. But if a girl friend backstabs him, like Sarah did, they become rivals.” AMEN sister.
Wes, you’re talking to a brick wall of people who either suck, or just had a chance of putting Johnny in and put their own alliance members in instead.
Why is Devin randomly called “Gronk” at one point?
Why did the cast on Free Agents have the real nice Challenge Jerseys, but they still just went back to plain t-shirts after that? Was thinking they moved on to nice “uniforms”
Should have had some distance between the two yellers.
This is pure insanity
TJ looks like he’s facepalming in the background this entire elim lol
Wes had an easy time as soon as Jamie wasn’t just holding him the whole time.
Hey look, Johnny talking about winning with grace. Literally the dude that hoots and hollers every single time he wins. I swear I would hate this guy near as much if he just didn’t have confessionals. He’s such a two faced hypocrite as soon as he talks in confessionals. His confessionals do him a disservice.
Johnny talking to Vince about someone else playing on borrowed time is amazingly oblivious.
EP 10:
Oh god Johnny talking about a final being a real final when you go against strong teams. Fuck off Johnny.
“Guys! I miss Sarah!” Ok, Johnny can be funny
Cory talking about timing lol what in the hell are you trying to talk about Cory? Lol You’re so bad at the politics
I think I’ve actually seen this challenge of digging up partners but it was at the very beginning of a season. I keep waiting to see it, but I don’t think it’s this one.
Wes putting Cory back in this comp shows that he smartly knows he’s probably not reliable.
Nate literally saying his strategy is wanting to be a layup for Bananas and coming in third place lmao These fuckers are depressing.
Wes was on a roll, but he’s absolutely blown this
Wes bobbing up and down in excitement after Nicole/Dario win lol
Half of Christinas answers were really fucking dumb lol Nate’s strategy of wanting to be a layup to Bananas is the worst fucking joke though lmao
Nicole, I feel like you could have phrased this a tiny bit better than talking about Cory making deals with Wes.
Dario then talks to Wes about wanting to throw in Cory. Nicole, you dumbass.
Dario and Nicole are not fucking good at this game lol jesus christ
Nicole is just blindly sitting by and watching Nany get fucked right now lol
Dario’s game plan: Let’s call over Johnny and Sarah and present our asshole for them and hope they feel gracious later on. Jesus, people
Nicole and Dario may seriously be dumber than Vince/Jenna
Nicole...what point of view? Seriously. One guy had a conversation with another guy weeks ago so suddenly everything is null and void? Lmao what are these people talking about? Cory is the one that’s wanting to play both sides, but somehow Wes/Nany and Devin/Cheyanne are the bad guys?
This really just comes to me as Dario being afraid of going against Bananas and Vince and just trying to do anything to rationalize it.
EP 11:
Devin looks like a robot when he does his 3 clap thing. Like his hand is at an exact right angle and stiff as can be.
Oh yeah, midevil torture, lets go!
I have way more faith in Smashley holding on to a bar than Christina.
Smashley being a complete disappointment, damn
Cory again, is fake muscle. Is Cory the second coming of Ty? Complete exhaustion with the least amount of effort.
Cory and Smashley an utter disappointment. That was depressing to watch. I knew Cory has like a quarter tank of gas, but Smashley was impressing most of the season.
The downside of Nany and Wes right now is literally that they’re not trying to sit Nicole/Dario down and talk rationally to them. The way they continue to come off is emotional and spastic just because they got screwed over, but I feel it’d go over a lot better if they just talked about what actually took place and how it was nothing.
Vince...is just terrible.
News alert: Vince is terrible at challenges, remember he THREW all those challenges on Bloodlines, he definitely didn’t suck. Trust his cousin, Johnny.
Johnny benefiting greatly from Sarah, he barely even has to jump getting on or off the bag.
Johnny having to rely on these shitty rookies not sucking is my favorite thing ever.
I hate how many of these dumbasses say “Fustrated”
Not really dominant TJ, they got one extra flag?
Wait, wait. How are these people EVER pulling out the black skull. I feel like this was the first time actually seeing a good glimpse of all the skulls and the other skulls have triangles cut out of the skulls and the black one has semi-circles. I knew there had to be a difference with how often it’s come down to the last draw, but this seems so dumb.
I feel like this is just going to be another season where Wes or Johnny goes right before the final and the one remaining is the clear winner in the final.
I love that this elim started with Nate and christina talking about being great in pressure, but what does them in is Nates patience and getting frustrated.
I’m fine being back in the days of Wes vs everyone. Wes is more entertaining in this seat than Johnny is.
Every season, without fail. “Where is it at?”
EP 12:
Wait, I thought they broke up? Oh jesus. Zach ghosts Jenna while she’s on The Challenge? Woooooow Zach, you were already a misogynist douchebag, but damn dude.
Oh god, Devin wanting to pull a Jordan lmao
Ugh, I hate seeing a challenge and instantly know that Johnny and Sarah have an advantage.
“It’s like having a giant condom on you”
You could have literally hindered Johnny/Sarah by like 5 minutes and I still would have bet on them over everyone in that challenge from the start.
I hope to see a repeat of Dario being absolutely terrible in an elim.
Jesus christ, do we literally have to hear about Johnny possibly not being over Sarah playing the game, every god damn episode? He is literally just piling on over and over again on Sarah. It’s gross.
I like how Johnny passes it off as carrying Vince AND Jenna knowing damn well it’s all Vince bringing that pair down. Vince is the new Dunbar or Tyrie.
Devin being 4 for 4 on the skulls.
Nany, just think of Nicole's eyebrows and imagine yourself beating something off of her face.
I hope we don’t get a repeat of the last time Wes was in something physical and confrontational. I miss roid rage Wes.
Jesus Wes, that was terrible.
This and the Hall Brawl elim versus Leroy is an absolute horrible back to back showing by Wes. That blows.
That had nothing to do with Nany not pushing Nicole. Wes you blew a big lead and were slow as shit in the crawl.
Welp, Johnny and Sarah have handedly won the season. Wes was probably the only one that would win a challenge to even put him in and none of these guys are going to beat them in a final.
Jenna looking confused: “We’re getting ready for the final right now?” Jenna, you are a treasure.
Johnny knowing it bothers her, and continually using it is definitely Johnny harkening back to his Kenny/Evan days. This should bother Sarah more than anything, because she saw those tactics in their prime.
At this point I just want to hear a single person on this cast saying “frustrating” the right way.
Sarah just sitting around eating while her two main ally’s continue to dole out what she has dealt with from the same people in the past is really hard to take. Especially when it includes picking on the only black girl by calling her a stereotypical name that they know bothers her.
Making someone want to leave, from the same person whos cousin earlier almost fought someone for calling him a bitch, and he passed it off as bitch gaming to get him out of the house. I can not take the Johnny hypocrisy.
EP 13:
Sarah DEFENDING it. Ugggggh Jenna and Sarah just trying to stay quiet and let the two guys be trash.
Glad you could get your friend back Sarah
Jenna and Sarah just passing off Devin being mad because he’s going to go home is some serious groupthink mentality in these games. Where you can tell Johnny has just repeated it enough times that they just accept that to just nullify any right Devin/Cheyanne have to being angry.
I’m suddenly back to the Ruins days where the people at the end just disgust me and I hate the second to last episode because it’s just everyone ganging up on one person or team.
Vince is a scumbag, fuck everything.
Johnny starting the morning saying this is nothing and everyone deals with it. FUCK out of here.
This one sequence is really just bringing this whole season crashing and burning down for me.
You can see the instant disgust on Johnny knowing his whole game comes down to drawing random straws lmao
Hahaha, please be Johnny vs Vince. Please please please please
Jenna being 3 for 3 for finals. Wow
No trivia this season, I just realized
Wow, these are literally the easiest of these style of riddles
“These young players keep testing me.” Really Johnny? You kind of coasted to this point.You consistently have the best partner any time you come in to a partners game.
That they’re struggling on Top Secret is crazy. These are literally some of the most basic ones of these idiom riddles that I’ve seen.
At least the best team isn’t getting knocked out right before the finale. I would have been fine with Dario or Vince going right here. I fucking hate Vince.
Hopefully this final is better than last seasons lackluster affair.
Don’t feel too bad about being here by luck Devin. Johnny’s been back 2 seasons on pure luck. Vince is here purely by association.
Them talking shit about Jenna being a hinderence in the final is hilarious, since she wasn’t the one to quit on her first, and she led her second one all the way to the point of something her and her tiny cousin couldn’t really do. I don’t even mean the food either. They struggled because the rowing and they had tiny ass arms.
I would not be surprised if Sarah and Johnny were the only people to complete the final.
A twist wholly set up for Johnny to fuck over Sarah. Sarah is literally staring down Johnny because you know she is expecting it.
Johnny not even looking at Sarah and only saying history could repeat itself, just shows me that he’s thinking the exact same thing.
If anything I hope Jenna fucks over Vince.
Of course, Johnny just avoids even talking about it. He won’t just say yes. Haha Johnny is a shit bag.
EP 14:
Johnny : “If anyone has to worry, it’d be me. You’ve done it in the past.” Says the guy that’s literally fucked over every girl he’s aligned with.
Hey, a Survivor style puzzle lol The slat puzzle
I honestly would have pulled an audible as the judge and allowed Johnny’s finish of the puzzle being upside down. It was together in the right order. It was just upside down. It’s still completed.
Johnny and Sarah’s confessionals sound like they’re trying to convince each other that they’re not planning on taking the money lol
I don’t know why it just hit me, but Devin reminds me so much of Big Head from Silicon Valley
“Could you go to sleep?” “Probably” Jenna’s brain default setting is literally off, she’s good.
Johnny is the king of projection. Let’s look at Cheyanne and say she’s only doing it for the points, knowing damn well you just talked about the 2 points being pivotal lol
“I feel like I can trust him. Yeah, I can trust him!” Famous last words Sarah
I wonder how much TJ hates having to sit there while these people puke?
20 minute penalty seems nuts. Wasn’t one of the most recent finals have like a 3 minute penalty? Lmao
Vince’s sucking finally coming to the surface! I love it!
Watching Sarah cough all over the place is hard to watch in current times
To compare working as a team and then taking all the money for yourself, to putting a different team in an elimination right before the final is a bit of a stretch Johnny.
Yeah, Johnny’s not a piece of shit at all lol
Yes Sarah, he just manipulated you the entire time. Don’t sit here and let him compare this to what you did. Fuck that.
I’m glad to be vindicated in my Johnny hate.
EP 15(Reunion):
I hope everyone at this finale laughs at Sarah for ever thinking this wouldn’t happen. You had the history right before your eyes all season. You had two past partners and friends that had nothing to do with him on this very season.
Hahaha Johnny trying to pass this off as anything like Sarah putting his team in to elimination is hilarious.
Oh here we go with Johnny’s usual argument. “How many finals have you been to?” You’ve literally had one of the top 2 or 3 partners every season dude.
I’m with Sarah, get the fuck out of there. Fuck this gaslighting prick.
Comparing him fucking over his partner taking any chance she had at money and comparing that to putting two people in to an elimination is just a sick joke. The only thing that makes them remotely similar is they both involved Johnny.
Hey Johnny going for reinforcement from guys he worked with. Whoa what is new?
I’m really getting to the point of hating these reunions and how no one says shit in defense of anyone. It’s like everyone is so afraid of Johnny they won’t say shit.
I would have honestly not doubted that Bananas knew about that twist the whole entire season.
How is Devin literally the only sane person on this stage?
You can’t call shit on Devin, when Johnny’s repeated total strategy is never going to an elim. You can’t then be mad at a team avoiding it constantly. Someone else who did the same thing literally became your biggest ally.
I never want to see Vince again.
Quit trying to talk up Vince, we saw all of last season and this season. Vince sucks. Jenna carried that partnership.
This final and reunion back to back has given me a migraine.
Ewww, Vince and Camila. Eww
The weird denial following this is weird. Were they in there doing coke? There’s something definitely sketchy there, if they didn’t fuck.
Ok, I’m for this host. She ain’t backing down and letting Camila run it.
Even when Johnny is randomly asking people on the street he can't help but frame the question in his favor and it still doesn't come out like he wanted lmao
Overall Thoughts:
Honestly, this season was great, but was almost hard to watch with the last couple episodes leading in to the final. The severe lack of competition makes the whole seasons basically rely on one or two main occurrences or eliminations and suddenly the rest of the season falls in line. As soon as Wes was gone, the season was decided. Not necessarily that Wes would win the final, but Wes was likely the only other person that would win over Banana's and Sarah and actually put Johnny in or beat Johnny in an elimination. I hate Johnny and I think I hate Vince even more because he talks just as much shit, but has done literally nothing. I'm still waiting for a single redeeming quality for Johnny to pop it's head out. Where were all the people throughout these posts that would not understand where the Johnny hate was coming from? It has literally only gotten worse!
That being said. I think Sarah basically played herself. It was Kenny all over again when he bullied her incessantly on The Ruins and then they went in to Fresh Meat 2 and basically the first words out of Sarah's mouth was that Kenny was her number one. To ever think you had anything to earn back from Johnny or to ever think he would suddenly have your back again is 100% on you. I still think Johnny did a supremely fucked up thing and him trying to compare it to what Sarah did was disgusting. It would have been 10 times better if he just walked out and said "Yeah, I did it. Fuck off" but the fact that he tries to validate it and he has to have people agree with him and be ok with it is what pisses me off. Either be the fucking bad guy or own up to the fact that you're a piece of shit you can't just do all these shitty things and act like you're above it all and you're only doing what you have to do. You're gross. You're a hypocrite and you're the fucking king of gaslighting, and I thought that before this fucking season. There was not a single fucking episode that went by that you couldn't bring up time and time again how you think you still weren't over what Sarah did. You kept building it up and up like it was the worst betrayal in the history because you just had to hold that over Sarah's head. You're a sick fucking dude. I am seriously on the edge of my seat just waiting for a single redeeming aspect of him to appear to understand even the slightest of fans.

2020.09.15 00:29 RFFF1996 The strawhat crew as a basketball team

So mixing one piece and other thinghs i like in my head is one of my favorite time killers and one of my prefered picks for this is basketball which prompted me to maje this semiserious analysis and share it with you guys.
In this thread i will use real life player examples and use basketball concepts but will do what i can for it to not sound like martian language
i will subjectively consider amd weight many thinghs about the character for this comparisions
height: a charactert like luffy will be a short guard, a character like kaido will be a big center, and everythingh in between
body composition/body mass. one piece proportions are all over the place and making Franky a "3"/or wing perimeter player (in basketball players are roughly divided by size between a small "1" up to a big "5") and katakuri a "5"/center makes sense for their actual relative height but not for their body composition so i wont be conpletely literal with heights but try to look for players that fit that character body as much as i can with real humans and one piece characters
talent level=power level (roughly). i will try to keep some relation between the strongest one piece characters, next tier of characters to next tier of players, people like ussopp to role players etc
personality and kind of power or fighting style, character intelligemce etc will be equated as much as possible to the characteristics of a player
when possible i will try to keep age difference to an extent, so whitebeard will conpared to older players versus shanks to a younger generation and luffy to the next one etc
part 1 of this: the strawhat crew
Monkey D luffy: isaiah thomas (2017)/derrick rose(2011) combo. this was hard and i also thought about kirye irving
luffy is 5'9 which is around the smaller height someone has made an all star and a big weakness in basketball. so i decided to tweak him a bit
isaiah thomas in 2017 is the best player at luffy height ever, but i want luffy "power level" to go a steo higher than mr clutch (and if possible not to have career ruining injuries too)
this luffy was supposed to join the league at 19 (like real life nba players usually do) but did it at 21 instead and grows a bit more through these two years to, lets say, 5'11 to 6'0 in shoes (d rose height)
this version of luffy has longer arms and legs than usual for his size (fits with luffy rubber powers of stretching) which lets him olay against taller and heavier players (think rajon rondo for counterintuitively long arm players who are pretty short)
luffy is fast, high jumping and strong as hell desite being small which fits both isaiah and derrick rose
i imagine basketball luffy to be the guy who plays basketball all dah for fun and develops increible skill but also a very tunnel vision game that makes too many crazy decisions or takes too many hard shots (canonical to pirate luffy lol) amd that along with size being his weakness
he would be a good shooter like isaiah, have the ridiculous ball driblling of kirye irving amd the athletism and power to finish at the rim of derrick rose as well as rose recklessness to put his body at risk to attack the rim despite the hits he will get by doing so
overall an agressive, athletic and uber talented pointguard who gets tunnel vision dor 1 vs 1 pmay and take hard shots and is too unworried about taking physical hits so he can score. also being nearly always the smaller player on the court
background: he grew up idolizing shanks (who is kobe-like in this universe, rip kobe), and decided he would surpass him, an accident who may or mot have involved his brother caused him to need open hearth surgery in college hence his scar. and meant he delayed joining the league two years until he was 21
stats: 27 points in good efficiency/8-9 assists/5 rebounds hit and miss defense. plays very hard and gets lots of steal but also overplays too much causing breaks in team defense by being reckless and his size doesnt help
roronoa zoro: mix of jimmy butler with some kawhi
zoro is 5'11, for the purpose of this thread he wil be around 6'3 with shoes here
stats: 11 points in average efficiency, great team defense/ 7 rebounds in limited minutes (would be 11-12 as a starter), 3 assists (would be 5 as a starter)
he will play the 3 in a small roster where every rival wing is at least 3 inches taller than him
zoro is a tough guy with the toughness and strenght/bulk to play all day agsinst bigger players and still put in work on all facets of the game like jimmy butler
i imagine him in background as someone who back in high school was a kendo practiciones or somethingh and luffy got into basketball and he trained his ass nonstop to become good
his weakness is partially size but also growing up in a 1 vs 1 duels environment with kendo and struggling to get out of that mind frame for 5 vs basketball
he ia very good at developing his skill set to score on anyone, or to stop anyone 1 vs 1 but less so to make plays for teammates or playing the less visible but more important and unlauded help/off ball defense because he is too geared towards "duel" basketball
tends to get "lost" in defensive rotations or even in offensive team plays when he doesnt have the ball
he is athletic in a different way to exolosive luffy. by being strong, in great control of his body and using quick and short distance burts.of speed to beat his defender
he is also a tough rebounder despite size amd gets lots of free throws attacking the rim, is a so-so shooter but is very good at creating his own shot in 1 vs 1 isolation play
like if jimmy butler was not as good at passing and play making but was even stronger, more tough, and was better at creating his own shot and with a lot of room to grow, or if jimmy butler style of play was more like kawhi or jason tatum
stats: 23 points/ 6 rebounds/ 3 assists. above average efficiency thanks to free throws. mediocre 3 point shooting great individual defense, average help defense. workhorse
vinsmoke sanji. a smaller robert convington om defense. malcolm brogdon on offense
same size as zoro (6'3) but not as undersized for his position (shooting guard or 2), incredibly fast amd high jumping as sanji is fast and can fly in one piece
his style of play is less obvious and more team oriented sometimes to a fault
in defense he wont shut down a rival star like zoro but he will fly through the court to plug holes and help his team mates all across the court while in offense he will take a back seat and contribute with his strong shooting off ball snd becoming a secondary playmaker to luffy when needed, arguably taking too much of a backseat for his skillset
he is not as strong as zoro and capable of attacking the rim or fighting rebounds but his leg strenght still lets him guard bigger players im the post (think james harden or marcus smart) his mentality for good or bad is less oriented to taking over as a star compared to zoro and sanji and more on being a super compliment player who is a jack of all trades
background: bad relationship with his rich family that once owned a great franchise (germa 66)that failed to win titles thanks to sora and the marines leaving them trophy-less like bill russel used to do with the lakers. lost most of their fortune and team and are bitter about that
stats: 18 points in great efficiency/ 5-6 assists/4 rebounds. excelent shooting all around on smaller volume than zoro but less free throws. elite team defense and average 1vs1 defense
Jimbe: best comparision. Al Horford
bih enough and strong to be a small center or a power forward. smart just like horford is a great passer, good shooting just like jimbe has his great water projectiles, great defenses
basically, not a superstar but a perfect compliment star. experienced in a younger team line horford was for kirye, tatum amd brown in celtics (actually i made all this thinking om 2018 celtics as a base lol)
Background: career long all star that joined a new young project at his early thirties after being in way too many teams before
stats: 16 points on great efficiency, 9 rebounds, 4 assists (great for an interior player). great team and rim defense but struggles a bit against the bigger centers or faster small guards. uses a varied skill set with 1 vs 1 against big slower centers, passing and smart play all around. a perfect dance partner for luffy in the pick and roll
basically a team like 2018 celtics. small ball, great dynamic offense with many players contributing, mostly young talent with a veteran, lots of movement. luffy being the engine (kirye/isaiah or even kemba). zoro the scorer (tatum), sanji the discret do it all (brown) and jimbe the perfect team compliment all star center (Al horford)
Tony Tony Chopper: power forward, 6'9 who plays like second year domantas sabonis. a not particularly fast 4-5 who compensates relative slowness with intelligent movement, is a thick guy who fights bigger players for rebounds and his wide frame + timing (lol defense point) lets him make brutal screens that help create open shots contributing to the team "all hands involved offense", shares the position with brook
background: the second youngest okayer in the team, brilliant and talented but with avwrage athletism, great passer amd average shooter. learning a similar skillset to jinbe
stats: 10 points in average efficiency, great team defense/ 7 rebounds in limited minutes (would be 11-12 as a starter), 3 assists (would be 5 as a starter
Brook: comparision a older tall, lanky wing that is used as a interior player now for small ball
someone like danilo gallinary body wise but even lankier
6-10, very light, long limbs. came back from "death" aka injuries in his youth amd resucitated his career in his 30's
is a very fast player for his height who uses speed and and arm reach to guard even small fast players. offensively his straignt line speed is great and lets him be used against slower interior player when there is space for a straight line drive to the rim, his 3 point shoting helps the team the rest of the time
weaknesses: his body makes him be tossed around for rebound amd in tje paint all game long
stats: 10 points in solid efficiency, good shooting, few rebounds, grest defending small players, not so great against big centers
Franky: Huge brute ish offensive center with both great skill set and geeat size and power but his speed limits him in defense. like enes kanter or bobam marjanovic
also just like boban he would be the kind of player who is beloved by alll teammates amd appears im john wick movies
a 1 vs 1 powerhouse to be used in burst like, lets say, dallas.mavericks use marjanovic in dallas, a real glass cannon player
stats 11 points in absurd efficiency and ridiculous rebounding and blocking in back up minutes. strugles defending when forced to take on small players
Ussopp: unathletic and small player with a knack for crazy brilliant plays, sneakily being in the right place when the rival is not putting attention (off ball movement/cuts to the rim) and shootimg
comparision: jj reddick. offensively a offball piece that everyone would love but defensively has some limitations
shoots excelent percentages in free throws/ three pointers and in general. despite physical limitations knows where to be on defense
background: son of another great shooter who played with shanks
Nami: role back up point guard to luffy, and no nonsense locker room voice
like ussops is not particularly athletic or big (5'10) but is smart and talented. less of a shooter thsn ussop or off ball weapon but more of a playmaker who can run plays intelligently when luffy is in the bench
uses above average skill, solid shooting, discipline amd intelligent play to lead bench units or back up luffy in stretches
is on of the best players in the whole league at knowing when and where to be to steal the ball giving her some defensive value in spite of physical limitations
rest of the rotation
Carrot: rookie player and incredibly young. short (6'0) but incredibly athletic and high jumping, fan favorite despite how inexperienced and impolished skill wise she yet is
doesnt have too big of a role but fans joke that every full moon she will become gold roger and take over a game
Pedro:veteran player picked up to give bech depth, solid sixth men caliber player, 6'5 size
a moral leader in the team that provides experience alongside jimbe
Coach: Buggy a failed player who is obsessed with his ex college teammate shanks sucess, failed upwards a coach role somehow
usually incompetent but once in a while will come with a idea to help the team
Assistant coach: nico robin. former team personnel member who managed to join the coaching staff (think eric spoeltra as heat coach) who is the real brain behind the team brilliant and off the wall tactics but ia fine letting buggy hold the spotlight
instead of random creepy thoughts she comes with random crazy plays and strategies that often work
full team:
Luffy/nami/carrot
Sanji/ussopp/carrot
zoro/pedro
Chopper or brook
Jimbe/franky
Head coach: buggy
real coach: nico robin
style of team: high powered and creative offemse that plays very hard in defense despite lack of size (underdog aspect) amd youth (inexperience) best team comparision : 2018 boston celtics

2020.09.14 17:59 TheTipOff How can the Bucks retool and contend for a championship?

Addition By Subtraction: Firing Coach Budenholzer
One of the biggest issues Milwaukee ran into with the Miami Heat was how ruthless Miami was in exploiting Milwaukee’s drop pick and roll coverage. Miami came into the series the best three point shooting team in the regular season, while Milwaukee was the worst team at defending the three; a recipe for disaster.
While the blame for this type of defensive scheme can be put on the coach, Coach Bud has proven in his two years in Milwaukee that he is the right man for the job. With a combined record of 116–39 in his two regular seasons, he’s elevated the game of Giannis and the rest of the Bucks to elite status. It would be silly for Milwaukee to fire the coach that has taken Giannis to an MVP level (and Khris Middleton to an all star level) and risk upsetting him before his impending free agency in 2021. On top of this, many sources close to the Bucks do say Coach Bud’s job is relatively safe for now.
Likeliness: 2/10
Adding Some Veteran Talent: Chris Paul
Chris Paul was in a unique situation this year where he was playing for a playoff team (Oklahoma City Thunder) that does not have him in their long term plan. The 35 year old point guard was first linked with a potential trade to the Bucks right after the Bucks were bounced from the playoffs.
Bucks trade for Chris Paul
Though the Bucks could trade for the All-Star point guard, in order to match salaries, it would most certainly mean parting ways with their own All-Star, Khris Middleton — one of Giannis’ closest teammates. On top of this, the Thunder would most likely not just accept Middleton on his own as he comes with his own massive contract and does not line up with the timeline of the other Thunder youngsters (Middleton is 29 while for example, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is 22). Someone like a Donte DiVincenzo would have to accompany Middleton plus another asset like a first round pick in order to convince the Thunder to make this trade. The issue with the Bucks has with a Chris Paul trade is that the Thunder holds all leverage with Paul’s market value being as high as it is right now. However, if the Bucks want to see past the fact that they’d be paying Chris Paul 40 million dollars until he’s 38, they could risk it and go for it, though it doesn’t seem like the most calculated risk.
Likeliness: 4/10
More shooting means Less Problems: Buddy Hield
Amid all the mediocrity in Sacramento this year, one of the few bright spots for the Kings was the continued strong play of Buddy Hield. Hield put up a respectable 19.2 points per game on 40% from 3 in 72 games this year and could have the type of shot creation and some of the ball handling ability the Bucks could be looking for — at a less risky price than Paul. On top of this, Buddy Hield has expressed some disgruntlement in Sacramento, potentially making his price even cheaper.
Bucks trade for Buddy Hield
If Hield is able to force himself out of Sacramento, the Bucks could be able to provide the Kings with potentially a suitable package centered around Donte DiVencenzo. The 23 year old guard from Villanova could potentially be a long term partner in the backcourt to De’Aaron Fox as he can defend other guards well and can shoot the ball at a decent clip (34% from three on almost 4 attempts per game this year). The Kings also get an expiring contract in Ersan Ilyasova and Brook Lopez who they can either flip to a contender or keep to help space the floor for their guards and Marvin Bagley. However, this trade is hinged on two things; 1. How high are the Kings on DiVencenzo? and 2. How much do the Bucks believe in Buddy Hield to be the “final piece”?
Likeliness: 5/10
Throwing Caution to the Wind: Devin Booker or Bradley Beal
Devin Booker and Bradley Beal are very similar players in very similar situations — two incredibly gifted scorers without much help from their teams. The only difference being the Wizards are looking to make another playoff push once John Wall comes back from injury and the Suns are looking to build upon their 8–0 bubble run to make the playoffs in the next couple years. However, both have previously expressed their discontent with their respective franchises about the lack of winning, and the Bucks could take advantage of that in try to swing big.
Bucks trade for Bradley Beal
Bucks trade for Devin Booker
In either case, it would be an almost certainty that the Bucks are forced to part ways with Middleton to make salaries and quality work. The Bucks will be heavily tied down financially with the Middleton max deal, Giannis’ potential supermax deal, and the Bledsoe and Lopez extensions. In the case of Washington, a reshuffle of wings could be the best option for them if they look to push for the playoffs one more time John Wall on the roster. If Bradley Beal wants out in Washington, perhaps Middleton could be a decent alternative. With the Suns, however, they’re looking to build for a couple more years and waiting for the aging rosters in the West above them (Los Angeles Clippers, Houston, Lakers, etc) to drop off before making their own push. Coupling this with the recent MVP level play of Devin Booker this would mean the Bucks would have to throw in another young piece to complete the deal. In any case, however, either deal seems almost impossible because of how much of a risk this is for the Bucks, and how much this hinges on either Beal or Booker wanting out.
Likeliness: 1/10
Bucks do some convincing: Turning to the Free Agency Market
At the end of the day, the Bucks front office may believe that the internal growth within the roster (of players such as Divencenzo and Pat Connaughton) plus some more low key signings could be enough to make it out the East. In this case, this would make the free agency period of 2020 exponentially more important, as it’s effectively the last chance for the Bucks to prove to Giannis they can continue to build a championship level team.
One of the Bucks biggest weaknesses is at the point guard spot. Of course, this would not be such a big issue if the Bucks had decided to pay Malcolm Brogdan in free agency last summer instead of extending Eric Bledsoe, but that’s in the past.
One potential guard they could pursue is Raptors combo guard Fred Vanfleet. This would not only weaken a direct rival in Toronto, but it would also give the Bucks another ball handler and someone who can create their own shot when Giannis is sitting. On top of this, a Giannis-Vanfleet pick and roll with Middleton spreading the floor could be deadly for teams to handle. Other cheaper options the Bucks could look at are Goran Dragic, Jordan Clarkson, Jeff Teague or Reggie Jackson. Something to keep in mind is that spending on one of these guards would most likely end the tenure of Eric Bledsoe only a year after signing his extension, something which may not necessarily be a bad thing.
Another potential free agency path the Bucks could look at is adding more wing depth.

Starter 2nd 3rd 4th 5th
Eric Bledsoe George Hill Donte DiVincenzo Frank Mason III
Wesley Matthews Donte DiVincenzo Kyle Korver Sterling Brown George Hill
Khris Middleton Pat Connaughton Sterling Brown Kyle Korver Wesley Matthews
Giannis Antetokounmpo Ersan Ilyasova Thanasis Antetokounmpo D.J Wilson
Brook Lopez Robin Lopez Ersan Ilyasova D.J Wilson
Looking at the Bucks depth chart from this year, the Bucks lack quality at the wing spots (aside from Khris Middleton). Signing another wing shooter and sliding Middleton back to the 2 guard and Matthews on the bench gives the Bucks more depth. One big option they could pursue is Danilo Gallinari. This gives the Bucks more shooting at the 3 spot and more size. On top of this, this gives the Bucks the option of closing games with Giannis at the 5, as Gallinari can slide to the 4 and Matthews can come in for Brook Lopez. This added versatility could be incredibly useful in series’ such as against Miami where more shooting would have helped Giannis when he ran into Miami’s “wall defense”. Other options the Bucks could pursue are Joe Harris, Otto Porter Jr, Davis Bertans, Jae Crowder, or Kent Bazemore.
This option is a lot more low risk low reward as it keeps the same core group of players that lost to Miami. However, what it does is keep stability to the franchise and puts trust in Giannis and this group of players, which would help in keeping Giannis in Milwaukee — as that should be the Bucks top priority.
Likeliness: 8/10
TLDR:
At the end of the day, the Bucks are not in a terrible position. They have an above average coach and a decent group of players surrounding the (soon to be) back to back MVP and current DPOY — a top 5 player in the NBA. They just so happened to run into the 1 team that was coincidentally built to handle Giannis and the Bucks (Miami). Whether it be firing the coach or making a big trade or working savvy deals in free agency, it’s safe to say the Bucks will be back next year and will be challenging for the title, and if you’re Giannis Antetokounmpo, that’s almost all you can ask for in the team that drafted you. The Bucks put faith in Giannis when they drafted him 15th in 2013, it’s time Giannis puts that same faith in the Bucks.

2020.09.14 07:44 banngbanng NBA Duos

This NBA season has been dominated by Dynamic Duos. You have LeBron and AD, Kawhi and PG, Luka and KP, Jimmy and Bam, Harden and Westbrook, Dame and CJ, Murray and Jokic, Embiid and Simmons, Giannis and Middleton, etc.
This prompted a dumb thought experiment for me. What if the playoff teams were all built around a duo? What I did was take the (roughly, 13-20 is debatable imo) 16 best players in the NBA and pair them with an eligible bachelor. I also avoided most guys like Ja and Zion, because the other 14 teams need some rebuilding blocks.
This is the pairs I came up with sorted by how much I like them.
  1. Curry and Klay- Klay is someone that can be partnered with any player and fit, but you cannot just partner him with anyone and have the best shooting backcourt of all time that could help lead you to multiple titles.
  2. Booker and Ben Simmons- Booker needs to play with a facilitator and should play with people that can hide him on defense. Maybe, add-in a person that can run a devastating pick-and-roll with him and play in the cutter role when Booker has the ball in his hand. Simmons fills all of those roles. They’re also a similar age and like Kendall Jenner.
  3. Giannis and Kyrie- Kyrie gets to partner with one of the most stable and consistent presence in the NBA who isn’t going to hog the limelight (on purpose at least). Giannis gets partnered with a very good PG and the only guy outside of the top 16 that I fully trust to get me buckets in the last 2 minutes of an elimination game.
  4. AD and Bradley Beal- Arguably, this pairing shouldn’t be available, but I had Beal just out of my top-16 (and didn’t feel good about it). A big and a guard from the same draft class that fit very nicely together. This is almost certainly the best pairing. My only concern would be that neither guy has that fuck you edge necessarily, but it’s hard to argue the tangibles of the partnership.
  5. Luka and Bam- 2 awesome stars that are shockingly young. If the Mavs had Bam instead of KP in the Clippers series, do they win? Regardless, these 2 would be a winning core for many, many years to come. Luka is great at putting bigs in a position to win on offense and Bam is great at cleaning things up on defense and around the rim.
  6. Jokic and Siakam- The immediate thought with any big is to pair him with a guard that can get him the ball. The thing is that Jokic can be the main facilitator on offense. I’d rather pair him with a frontcourt partner that can help make up for his defensive shortcomings and be a nice complementary piece on offense. I don’t know, I just think you could do really cool shit with this twin towers combo as your core. (Note: Not saying that this or Embiid/Murray is a better combo than Jokic/Murray. I just think Embiid needs a guy like Murray more than Jokic does, if that makes sense.)
  7. Embiid and Murray- Murray and Jokic are a good pair, but they are both very offense focused dudes. Honestly, this is the exact same idea as 4 of the pairs above them. Big guy that’s good on defense with a small guy that good at offense is just a good combo. This one is lower because there is a mental side of things with Embiid and this doesn’t do anything to solve it (or exacerbate it). Also, I’m just lower on these guys than the ones above.
  8. KAT and Lowry- Obviously, the age gap is a problem. But the mental issues with KAT are the number 1 issue and I think Lowry has the best chance of unlocking him. Lowry is a tough dude with that 2nd coach vibe, but he’s also beloved and not as much of a dick as Jimmy or CP3. I like the basketball fit too even if it only lasts a couple of years.
  9. Dame and Gobert- Dame has been very good with traditional centers the last few years and Gobert is a high-end traditional center. Small guy that gets buckets + big guy DPOY. Also, I think some of the Mitchell/Gobert tension comes from Mitchell being a younger guy coming in to “Gobert’s team”. Dame is established and respected enough that I don’t think those same issues will be there as much at least.
  10. Tatum and Brown- These guys are young as hell and have already been the core of multiple ECF teams. Lots of versatility and defense with these guys.
  11. Harden and PG- On paper, I think this is a great combo (also very possible PG outside the top 16 is a crazy overreaction but also nothing in the world could convince that PG can ever be a 1A on a championship team so relegating him to the Robin side seems fair). PG is easier to handle than CP3/Russ and less flaky and difficult than Dwight. He can take over on the possessions Harden decides not to play basketball and he can pick up some defensive slack, all while providing sometimes reliable spacing. The downside to this is that these guys don’t have a great playoff track record and combining them seems a little dangerous.
  12. KD and CP3- I think KD should be paired with a mature stable person. CP3 brings that and is a widely recognized all-timer that demands respect. He also brings defense, playmaking, and spacing. KD is very good at basketball and brings most of the basketball skills to the table. The defensive team you could build around these guys would be dope.
  13. Kawhi and Kemba- You can put anyone with Kawhi really, but he has a proven track record with undersized star point guards. They’re also the same age which is nice. Also, they provide a nice zag as 2 of the best clutch time midrange guys in the league.
  14. Jimmy and Jrue- The defensive potential is elite. I think Jrue has the mentality to hang with Jimmy. You have a decent amount of versatility with these 2. But, they would be on the low end of these pairs in terms of pure talent. Arguably, Jrue is number 32 of these 32 guys.
  15. LeBron and CJ- This is just a discount version of Bron and Kyrie. That combo beat an all-time great team so maybe this combo could beat a normal level championship team.
  16. Don Mitchell and Khris Middleton- If this seems like I realized late that I need to put Khris Middleton on and the guy I had Mitchell with was the most replaceable, it’s because that is what happened. Khris Middleton isn’t ever going to be a bad fit with a guy, but the ages don’t match-up at all. I also don’t think that a team with these 2 as their best players would ever win anything significant.
I, also, put together pairs of building block guys, but this is way more arbitrary and dumb. I will not be explaining much or ranking these at all. I am very open to someone else taking a crack at this. I tried but I watch very little lottery basketball. It’s an even more nebulous concept because of how future-focused it is, plus a lot of the exciting young guys are in the good 32.
  1. Trae and Lonzo- Lonzo provides defense and would work well in a motion offense. I remain a Lonzo believer.
  2. Zion and Brandon Clarke- Just a really fun futuristic take on a classic twin towers concept.
  3. Ja and John Collins- Dunks
  4. Fox and Wendell- PG and Center combo
  5. Brandon Ingram and Marvin Bagely- Duke guys that went top 3 and disappointed early. I feel like they could be a fun combo on offense. Could they be the guys that finally draw Coach K to the NBA? No, almost definitely not.
  6. Ayton and Coby White- PG and Center combo
  7. Kristaps and RJ Barret- Gives RJ spacing. Needs 6 or 7 PFs to really work tho
  8. Jonathon Issac and Dejounte Murray- Defense
  9. SGA and Myles Turner- 2 of the only guys with playoff experience. This combo could pair nicely with a superstar.
  10. Sabonis and Devonte’ Graham- Big guy and little guy. I have not seen a single Devonte’ Graham minute in the NBA.
  11. Sexton and Mitchell Robinson- I feel like this combo has upside. Another PG/C mashup
  12. JJJ and OG- This is one of the only combos that is theoretically doable and cool. The defensive potential would be crazy. This isn’t even the game, but tell me Ja OG JJJ Clarke isn’t a super exciting core for years to come.
  13. D’Angelo Russel and Aaron Gordon- You could build a 35 maybe even 37 win team around these 2. Honestly, both guys are positive assets with tradeable contracts, so it’s not that bad. Trade them for bad contracts and picks, process time.
  14. Tyler Herro and MPJ- In theory, this could be a dope offensive pair in the future. You get two irrational confidence guys which could go either way. They are also very young but have serious playoff experience.

2020.09.14 00:47 iluvlamastaf RobinHood and International Gifting Tax

Hello tax,
I currently have two issues on hand and was hoping to receive any advice/guidance.
  1. I received 90K in a wire transfer as an international gift from Taiwan from an aunt. How would this be taxed?
  2. I currently own a RobinHood account with two linked bank accounts (different names on the bank account but one singular RH account). The two bank accounts linked to my RobinHood account are under my name and my partner's (not married). How would taxes be filed?
  3. The RobinHood (under my name) has received 30K from my partner's bank account. Would this 30K be added along with the previously received 90K as a taxable income?
Thanks again for taking your time to read and respond.

2020.09.13 14:46 zombie_wonderland Some good fantasy books with a strong heroine

Fantasy literature has come a long way since the boys club of The Lord of the Rings (which I’m a fan of, but let’s be honest here).

24. The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson - 2011

Book 1 of 4 in the Fire and Thorns series
Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.
Elisa is the chosen one. But she is also the younger of two princesses. The one who has never done anything remarkable, and can’t see how she ever will.
Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs her to be the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.
And he’s not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies, seething with dark magic, are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people’s savior, and he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.
Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young. Most of the chosen do.
“A smart, complex fantasy with stellar characters… Carson’s mature writing style, thoughtful storytelling, appealing characters and surprising twists add up to a page-turner.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

23. The Deed of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon - 1988

Paksenarrion, a simple sheepfarmer’s daughter, yearns for a life of adventure and glory, such as was known to heroes in songs and story. At age seventeen she runs away from home to join a mercenary company and begins her epic life.
Book One: Paks is trained as a mercenary and introduced to the life of a soldier, as well as the followers of Gird, the soldier’s god.
Book Two: Paks leaves the Duke’s company to follow the path of Gird alone—and on her lonely quests encounters the other sentient races of her world.
Book Three: Paks the warrior must learn to live with Paks the human. She undertakes a holy quest for a lost elven prince that brings the gods’ wrath down on her and tests her very limits.
“This trilogy builds in power and intensity… all the sweep and majesty of the finest heroic fantasy.”
—VOYA

22. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo - 2012

Book 1 of 3 in The Shadow and Bone Trilogy
Orphaned and expendable, Alina Starkov is a soldier who knows she may not survive her first trek across the Shadow Fold, a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters. But when her regiment is attacked, Alina unleashes dormant magic not even she knew she possessed.
Now Alina will enter a lavish world of royalty and intrigue as she trains with the Grisha, her country’s magical military elite—and falls under the spell of their notorious leader, the Darkling. He believes Alina can summon a force capable of destroying the Shadow Fold and reuniting their war-ravaged country, but only if she can master her untamed gift.
As the threat to the kingdom mounts and Alina unlocks the secrets of her past, she will make a dangerous discovery that could threaten all she loves and the very future of a nation.
“This is what fantasy is for.”
—The New York Times Book Review

21. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson - 2006

Book 1 of 3 in the Mistborn series (EDIT: 3 changed from incorrect 5)
For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the “Sliver of Infinity,” reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler’s most hellish prison.
Kelsier “snapped” and found in himself the powers of a Mistborn. A brilliant thief and natural leader, he turned his talents to the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler himself as the mark. Kelsier recruited the underworld’s elite, the smartest and most trustworthy allomancers, each of whom shares one of his many powers, and all of whom relish a high-stakes challenge. Only then does he reveal his ultimate dream, not just the greatest heist in history, but the downfall of the divine despot. But even with the best criminal crew ever assembled, Kel’s plan looks more like the ultimate long shot, until luck brings a ragged girl named Vin into his life.
Like him, she’s a half-Skaa orphan, but she’s lived a much harsher life. Vin has learned to expect betrayal from everyone she meets, and gotten it. She will have to learn to trust, if Kel is to help her master powers of which she never dreamed.
“Intrigue, politics, and conspiracies mesh complexly in a world Sanderson realizes in satisfying depth and peoples with impressive characters.”
―Booklist

20. Graceling by Kristin Cashore - 2008

Book 1 of 3 in the Graceling Realm series
The YA book Graceling tells the story of Katsa, who is smart and beautiful and lives in the Seven Kingdoms where selected people are born with a Grace, a special talent that can be anything at all. Katsa’s Grace is killing. As the king’s niece, she is forced to use her extreme skills as his brutal enforcer. Until the day she meets Prince Po, who is Graced with combat skills, and Katsa’s life begins to change. She never expects to become Po’s friend. She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace—or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away… a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.
“Cashore strikes a strong balance between adventure, drama and romance–bloody battles and sexual tension co-exist in equal measure.”
—BookPage

19. The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. by Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland - 2017

The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. is brilliant, fast-paced, and will give you sore wrists because it’s a thick, heavy book, but you will not want to put it down.
An expert in ancient languages is hired by a mysterious government agency to translate some documents that suggest that magic actually once existed in the world. But the advance of science caused magic to disappear in 1851. However, the existence of a two-hundred-year-old witch and some fancy technology allow a limited amount of magic to occur in this world, and soon the language expert and others are being sent back in time to repair history. And, if they’re lucky, bring magic back to the world.
“Quantum physics, witchcraft, and multiple groups with conflicting agendas, playfully mixed with vernacular from several centuries and a dizzying number of acronyms, create a fascinating experiment in speculation and metafiction that never loses sight of the human foibles and affections of its cast.”
—Publishers Weekly

18. Soulless by Gail Carriger - 2009

Biography:

Thomas Rye was born in 284 AC, the first son of Walton Rye and his wife Violet. They were commoners living under the rule of Aemon Targaryen, and they were happy with their simple lives. The Ryes were no noble House, not even the smallest of knightly aristocracy, they were merely a family of fairly wealthy smallfolk famed for their most common product, rye. They had a meagre plot of land where they planted and harvested their bounty, Walton housed and employed a dozen other families to help with the business in return for food and shelter. For the first two years of Thomas’ life he enjoyed as many comforts as his parents could afford their precious child. He was one of the few children in the village with actual shoes fitted by the shoe-maker one town over. Beyond that, his family wore well-made clothes- far from the silks and eastern fabrics of the nobility, but still something that showed their wealth.
Things changed in 286 when the season turned. Thomas had been born into the Great Summer, the longest to be recorded by the maesters in living memory. And while the Gods had granted Westeros this boon, they also saw fit to extract a toll. Summer shifted into Autumn, and from the beginning the smallfolk noticed the difference. Trees did not turn the beautiful oranges and reds and yellows customary to the season, instead, their leaves wilted and died, cracking and falling to the ground in a decomposed mess. Roots turned up black and misshapen, half the bounty of the forest became inedible or simply did not grow in the first place. At first it wasn’t so bad for the Ryes. Their product slowly dwindled as they harvested less and less each moon, but their fields were large compared to their neighbors. Thanks to the many families that lived on their estate they still made the most of their crippled yields of crops, even if profit worsened by the year. When Thomas was five years old his mother birthed another child, a sickly boy named Damon. He lived two moons, then perished, leaving the family in a state of grief. At the age of six Thomas was sent to help his parents in their rye fields. Under different circumstances they would have waited until he was older, but these was no average Autumn. He grew stronger through the hard work of planting and harvesting crops, even if it was arduous work for a boy of his age. He spent the next few years similarly, aiding his community where he could by doing whatever jobs they required of him. He relayed messages to the families that lived further out in the forest, helped with the animals that still lived on the estate, and constantly helped collect the produce the village output.
When he was ten his father introduced him to an heirloom their family had passed down for years. A sword of black iron, crudely fashioned, but of adequate quality. They had cleaned, polished, and scoured it of rust since the fourth Blackfyre rebellion where their ancestor, Roger Rye had made a name for himself slaying a true knight of the Golden Company. Walton was no great swordsman, but his father had taught him how to swing the sword, and so he planned to pass the knowledge down to his heir. Thomas practiced first with a wooden sword fashioned by a forrester from the Kingswood. He took surprisingly well to the training, and Walton quickly deemed him ready to swing the true steel. The boy spent every spare moment running the black iron blade against dummies made of cloth and lightly packed timber. His arms would be strained every week from the constant work, but he pushed through it, determined to be a fine warrior. Two more years he followed this schedule until tragedy struck the Rye family once more. The Black Autumn finally subsided, but with the coming of winter came even harsher conditions. The Rye family began to lose great portions of their harvest, and profits hit an all-time low. Even worse, Walton came down with terrible chills, and the village elder was uncertain if he would pull through. The old man fought hard for three moons, but none can outrun death, and it claimed his life as it had claimed all before him. At the age of 12 Thomas inherited the Rye estate, a promotion he was woefully unequipped for. His mother Violet did the majority of the managing, though she herself struggled with the passing of her lifelong partner. The farms continued to hemorrhage money, and more and more members of the village died from the lack of food, or simply because of the cold. Violet passed on the skills she could to Thomas, and one day, in the middle of a snowstorm that blinded the crownlands, walked out to freeze in the cold. While her intention might have been to lessen the load on her last remaining children, it instead made it even harder to move forward. Thomas toughened up after the event, determined to lead his village and provide for his brother Harry, the only one of his siblings to survive their childhood. He did admirably for the situation he was in, but it mattered not, this winter was not one his settlement could survive.
In 298 AC a group of the king’s tax collectors came for the monarchs due, something Thomas simply couldn’t provide. He haggled and bartered, argued and debated, did whatever it took to reduce the price, or at least gain an extension on the payment time. They agreed to give him another moon, then they would return. The village banded together to raise the funds, they worked even harder in the fields, harvesting any crop that dared grow in the winter. They sold valuables, heirlooms, items that had been in their families for generations. Thomas did his part, selling his mother’s clothes, then his father’s, then the swaddling clothes of his long dead siblings. They pooled every coin of profit, every halfpenny, groat, stag, star, moon, even a single golden dragon that Billy the Bearded had gained by selling a ring to the gold-workers in King’s Landing. The tax collectors came again, just as they said they would. It wasn’t enough. Thomas begged them to take what they had, desperately pleaded that they had been so close. This money collector was not the same as before though. His name was Desmond, and he was famed for collecting every single penny he was due. Desmond swore he would return with the city watch and extract the funds, even if it required seizing the Rye crop fields.
Despairing and out of options, Thomas retreated to his family home where he intended to drink himself into a stupor and wait to have his lands stolen from him. Instead, the men and women of the village came to him, armed with pitchforks, scythes, butchering knives and hammers. They would defend their homes, but they needed a Rye to lead them, just as Roger had almost 70 years in the past. Thomas grabbed up his black iron sword and gathered every able bodied person in the village. There were some that refused to fight, either too craven to defend their livelihood or those that simply didn’t think it worth the struggle. Many and more took up weapons with their leader, and the awaited the kings men with vigilance. By the time Desmond returned the smallfolk had erected wooden barriers intended to catch the gold cloaks should they charge. There was a watchtower, though it was a pitiful thing indeed. Thomas approached the man, and the two conversed. It seemed for a moment that Desmond might relent, but the man was too prideful or too stupid to see the reason Thomas put forward. The two returned to their respective sides, and the gold cloaks approached to do the kings bidding. The battle that followed- if it could be called that- was a bloody and sad altercation. The city watchmen didn’t want to butcher commoners struggling to survive the winter, and the smallfolk didn’t want to breach the king’s peace for something as simple as money troubles. While the gold cloaks had been better equipped and trained, they were still outnumbered heavily by the famers of the Rye estate. Many were slain on both sides, but the gold cloaks were forced to retreat with their wounded and dead, and the villagers celebrated the hard fought victory, even if it felt empty. Thomas’ sword practice had proved instrumental, and he thanked his father’s soul for having trained him to use it. Desmond had been pulled from his horse during the scuffle and killed by a hammer strike to the temple, a fitting end for the man that had started the conflict. While the farmers had succeeded in this pursuit, Thomas realized that they were now outlaws, even if they wanted to uphold the king’s peace. They couldn’t stay here, even if that was why they had fought in the first place. Thomas ordered that the dead kings men be stripped of their weapons and armor, and that the items be spread out amongst the most capable of the survivors. Thomas received a black breastplate with the golden rings of an officer. He also took mail armor and a long iron dirk off the corpse of one slain watchman. They were a mismatched group bearing leather, wool, iron and mail, some wielding pitchforks and knives while others took the cudgels, spears, swords and dirks of the city watch. Into the Kingswood they fled, where they established a camp in the deep of the forest. The woodsmen and forresters of the crew taught them the secrets of the forest, which roots could be eaten for sustenance and which would kill you faster than a dagger of Valyrian steel. And while he hadn’t expected it, the men and women of the community still looked to Thomas as their leader, and he would not let their trust be misplaced. He decided when they would stay put and when they would move, when they would make a trip to the city for supplies and when they would rely on other smallfolk or the bounty of the forest. It was during this time that he took up the habit of chewing sourleaf, something that calmed his nerves and helped him think, even if it stained his teeth red as a result. Thomas’ leadership saw them through the harsh winter, and spring melted away the terrible snows that had plagued them for 4 long years.
Thomas’ band was not the only one living in the Kingswood, many of the others comprised of less than savory men with malicious intentions. They were robbers and thieves and raiders, broken men and opportunists, the dredges of society that had no place in the king’s city. Some sought to join the community of Rye, having heard of his exploits against the city watch. While they wouldn’t be his first choice for new residents, he understood the concept of strength in numbers and welcomed them in. Slowly then convinced Thomas that he wouldn’t be doing harm if he followed their way of life. Taking from others was justified if it was given to those that deserved and needed it the most. While hesitant, Thomas agreed to rob a noble, though villages and small communities were entirely off limits, lest he become worse than Desmond and the tax collectors. They ambushed a knight as he traversed the Kingsroad, taking him into their custody without spilling any blood. The man’s arms and armor were taken, later sold in pieces to buyers in King’s Landing and around the city. The profit was admittedly great, greater than anything they had made as farmers. Thomas saw how his people benefited from the gold, and how he even had enough to give to the nearby villages and families in the Kingswood. From then on they would continue their robberies and illicit activities, moving from knights to wealthy merchants and even minor lordlings travelling with light escort. Men would look for them, either city watchmen, royal soldiers, or levies sworn to some lord or another, but none of them could find Thomas Rye and his merry band, so well hidden within the Kingswood. As they became more renowned for their actions Thomas decided they might as well have a name, a moniker that nobles would learn to fear over time. They were dubbed the Autumn Brotherhood, after the horrendous Autumn that had set them down this path, and from there they would only grow. One hideout became two, and two quickly sprouted to three, soon Thomas’ Brotherhood was larger than he thought possible. It was during this rapid expansion that he took interest in a woman living in one of his hideouts. She was a newer addition, a woman that had left her village to join the expanding settlement of the Brotherhood. They quickly hit it off, Thomas and Lyra, and soon they were in love. Lyra bore Thomas his first son in 304 AC, a boy named Gulian. The year after they had a girl, they named the babe Rosey.
Still other brigands and outlaws flocked to the Autumn Brotherhood, some leaders of their own groups. Four such men and women made their way to Thomas, and he deemed them valuable enough to be his commanders. The first of which was Longshanks, a man of massive proportions that wielded an axe almost as large as him. He was Rye’s right hand, the one he could send to do any job. The others were Gentle Jack, called the Singer. His voice was as beautiful as they said, but his greatest talent was his archery. The man could shoot an apple off another man’s head at 100 paces with ease. There was also Quiet Kurs, the knife-wielder. He didn’t speak much, if at all, but he had the deftest hands in the Brotherhood, whether it came to thievery or dancing with his deadly blades. Old Anne was the last of them, a good leader, and a fine shot with a bow as well, though not as skilled as Jack. With their help the Brotherhood became even more effective, and even more infamous.
The Autumn Brotherhood was at the height of its power in 306 AC. While this was good in some ways, it also drew unwanted attention, and ire from those with the means to stop them. After years of terrorizing the roads and paths of the Kingswood the new king rode to put an end to them. Unwitting of the new offensive, Thomas only realized something was amiss when his first camp didn’t report to the others by nightfall. Soon, the second hideout also failed to report, and Thomas was certain the Brotherhood was under attack. He and his lieutenants made for the third hideout, but they arrived to find nothing but ashes and bodies. Thomas raged and sprinted to his home, desperate to locate his lover and children. He found three corpses instead. His cry of anguish was heard from Dorne to the Wall, or that’s what the singers say. With nothing left to fight for, Rye mounted his horse and made for a clearing, one with no clear outs and a river too deep to cross. He knew they would come for him, but that was exactly what he wanted. He would drag down every knight and solider and warrior that he could, even if he died a slow death for it. The place is now known as the Orange Clearing, for the leaves that fell in the Kingswood during the Autumn. Just as the bandit leader had thought, men had come for him, though they were no mere watchmen. King Viserys Targaryen himself had arrived, accompanied by Ser Triston Fell, the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard and some other White Knight, one Gwayne Tyrell. For the lives of his compatriots Thomas warned the King and his escort, but still they made their approach, intent on killing the bandits. Gentle Jack riddled the Lord Commander with two arrows, Anne struck true with a third. The man slipped from his horse, landing to do battle with the leader of the Autumn Brotherhood. Thomas was not an honorable man though, and too angry to give Ser Triston a fair fight. After a short scuffle he swept the knight’s leg and stabbed him through the throat, ending the wounded knight before his allies could aid him. By the time Thomas rejoined the fight Kurs was already dead, cut down by Gwayne Tyrell. Longshanks died shortly after, cut in twain by the King and his sworn sword. Anne couldn’t hold her bow straight, and reached for her crude dagger, which proved ineffective against a longsword. Jack had fled the battle after seeing the tide turn, and Thomas had cursed him as he turned tail. It was two against one, but both he and Tyrell seemed to have the same mindset. With a silent nod the two agreed to single combat, and Gwayne and Thomas locked into the deadly dance of swordplay. Thomas was more than a capable swordsman, having fought hundreds of men during his time in the Brotherhood. Gwayne Tyrell was a warrior, raised from birth to wield a sword, and it showed in their fight. Thomas fought admirably, but he was pushed onto the defensive, forced onto the back foot after each blow. A deep gash was cut into his shoulder, and he almost lost feeling in the limb- would have if it weren’t for the adrenaline. The Kingsguard slashed his blade across Rye’s face, ruining his left eye and causing his vision to run red. The two grappled near the edge of the Orange Clearing, and Thomas was thrown into the river, floating face-down in the water, presumed dead by all.
Thomas Rye was a resilient bastard though, and his rage and will kept him alive against all odds. He floated for what seemed like forever, before washing up somewhere in the Kingswood. Warm hands pulled him from the shore, and he felt himself being dragged somewhere before blacking out. He awoke in a hut of thatch and wood, being cared for by an old man that called himself Oldbones. The man was a hermit that lived on the outskirts of a village nearby, and they came to him when they needed someone healed. Fortunately for Thomas, Oldbones had no idea what the Autumn Brotherhood was, nor who Thomas Rye was. He healed the man, feeding him fish and stew and applying ointments to his wounds. Over time Thomas returned to his former strength, and he thanked Oldbones for his kindness and hospitality despite being a stranger. The hermit sent Rye to the village nearby, where he took up tilling and working the fields, the job he had grown up doing. For three years he established himself as a hard worker, and a worthwhile member of the community. People began to trust him, and some saw him as a leader, as they had back in his old village. To these new farmers he was simply Tom, as he kept his true identity to himself.
History seems bound to repeat itself though, as this village too fell on hard times. The Autumn conditions were similar to the last, and Thomas could only watch as crop yields lessened and fish harvesting failed. Tax collectors came once more, demanding every piece of gold the farmers had. Thomas didn’t wait for a second warning. He armed the villagers, showing them how to slit a throat with a knife or open a man’s belly with a scythe. They weren’t the Autumn Brotherhood, but they were more prepared than the Rye men had been the first time. When gold cloaks arrived for the taxes the villagers popped out from foxholes and from the canopies of trees, slaughtering them before they even made their demands. Thomas revealed himself for who he truly was, and a good portion of the village rallied to the long dead legend of the one-eyed bandit. Once again they armed themselves and made for the Kingswood. That is where Thomas bides his time, growing his Autumn Brotherhood once more and readying himself to glean revenge upon the king. He has a list this time around, those that must die for him to be satisfied. Gwayne Tyrell, the White Rose. Viserys Targaryen, the false king. Rhaenys Targaryen, who he would kill first to show Viserys the pain. Maekar Targaryen, the heir that Gulian wasn’t allowed to be.

He faces off with the king and two of the Kingsguard at the legendary Orange Clearing. Triston Fell is slain by Thomas but Gwayne Tyrell and Viserys cut down his compatriots. After a duel Gwayne Tyrell maims Thomas and pushes him into a river with bad wounds. He survives miraculously and is healed by a hermit named Oldbones, afterwards he moves into the village nearby where he works for the next 3 years. Tax collectors came again to demand gold, and this time Thomas took initiative, arming the villagers and attacking the gold cloaks. He revealed himself as Thomas Rye and has since fled to the Kingswood to start the Autumn Brotherhood once more.

NPC's

Robin of the Red Standard - Archetype (General) Rumors are that Robin was a soldier a long time ago. The man bears a crimson red banner wherever he goes, people whisper he was once a Targaryen soldier that broke on the field of battle and never left the sigil behind. Perhaps he was once of sound mind, but it is certain that he is not any more. The man is a dangerous mix of madness and fearlessness, and none would call him a poor warrior.
Ser Jason of the Kingswood - Archetype (General) Jason claims to be a knight with a storied history, but there are many and more than doubt his credentials. At the very least he has a suit of armor, even if it is rusted in places, and a sword of castle forged steel.
Fletch - Archetype (Bandit) Fletch is the best shot since Danos Caswell, or at least, that's how we touts himself. He is certainly a talented archer, but his most impressive skill lies in his adeptness at planning night raids on unsuspecting targets. The man is handsome and confident, but he reminds Thomas just a tad too much of Gentle Jack.
Pretty Jenny - Jenny portrays herself as beautiful and innocent, an act she puts up deftly. In truth, Jenny is deadly with knives and poisons, capable of concocting a poison with nothing more than the resources of the forest.
Theo the Dancer - Theo is a graceful and skilled swordsmen with a black sense of humor. He gets his moniker not only from his ability to dance, but the unique way he wields his blade.
Septon Cassander - Captured by the men of the Autumn Brotherhood on a semi-recent robbery, the Septon has been forced to read the Seven Pointed Star to the men of the Brotherhood. Despite his unwilling entry to the organization, he has provided Thomas with genuine counsel and advice in his times of need.
Green Greydon - A recent addition to the Autumn Brotherhood, Greydon joined up hoping to be a harrowed legend among the likes of the first Brotherhood. He is often laughed at for his optimism and his romantic vision of what their band is.
The Woodsmen - The Woodsmen is a forrester from the lands of the Kingswood. He doesn't speak, but he has more knowledge of the land than any other man in the Brotherhood. Deadly precise with an axe and with a wealth of knowledge of nature, he is a valuable member of the Autumn Brotherhood.

2020.09.12 09:41 erivieebb The ending

Only after rewatching HIMYM did I start to accept Tracy's death (although I still find it sad that the most compatible person for a romantic guy like Ted had to die). I think we can all agree that season 9 is a bit messy. It sucks how only in the final season did the mother really become a main character of the show and even in that season the mother didn't get the screen time that she deserved. But still, the show didn't fail to show how great the love that Ted and Tracy had. I don't really know if Tracy's death was necessary but it made more sense that she died (considering all the hints and clues the show has dropped over the seasons).
The ending could've been better (even with Tracy's death and Barney and Robin's divorce) had it not been rushed. Does the divorce of Barney and Robin make sense? Ehhh kinda. Looking back, I realized that Robin's not that good for both Barney and Ted (but Robin's better off with Barney than Ted). I wasn't surprised that Robin chose her career over Barney (even though it put her character development down the toilet) because she finally got her dream job and I don't see it as something she's willing to give up. As for Barney, it made sense that he didn't find a new partner because of the fact that there wasn't enough time to introduce a new one or he just wasn't ready to find a new partner.
I would've liked it more if after Tracy's death, Ted eventually rekindles his romance with Victoria. There's something about Victoria and Ted that just make sense. What's the point of bringing Victoria back in S7 and S8? It felt like their relationship could've exceeded. It would've felt right if Ted sees Victoria again after Tracy's death and after catching up they'll have a romantic relationship again.
Same with Barney. I liked him with Nora. After the divorce, I would've liked it if Barney and Nora meet again, have a one night stand (with Nora getting pregnant) and then getting back together. It would've made Barney having a child more heartfelt.
Please give me your thoughts hehe but please don't be too harsh xjdjdjxkdk thanks!

2020.09.12 08:00 ObjectiveAttitude8 Eight Tips For Launching Your Real Estate Investing Career

Eight Tips for Getting Started in Real Estate Investing
Introduction
This article is just the basics for getting started in real estate investing. This is not a how to article but an article that gives you some information about things to do to get started. Everything in this article is tools that can be applied to helping anyone get started in real estate investing. I am going to give you my eight keys to getting started. Nothing is right or wrong but reflects the point of view of the author. Laws and legal practices vary from state to state, and laws can change over time. The author does not vouch for the legality of his opinions, nor is there any intent to supply legal advice. The author strongly encourages the reader to consult with professionals and an attorney prior to entering in any real estate transaction or contract. The author is not a writer but he is a real estate investor. There will be grammar mistakes and errors, so don't be too critical of the grammar but focus your energy on what is being said. With that said prepare yourself to think a little differently and expand your mind. Let's get started on an amazing adventure.
The Eight Tips are as follows
  1. Desire
  2. Goal Setting
  3. Learning What To Do
  4. Attending a Real Estate Investing Seminar
  5. The Billings Montana Market
  6. Finding a Mentor
  7. Your Real Estate Team
  8. Just Do IT
  9. Desire
Before we get in to the bolts and nails of real estate investing in I want to talk to you about desire. If you are going to be successful at anything in life including real estate investing you have to have the desire to do it. Desire is defined as longing or craving, as for something that brings satisfaction or enjoyment. Desire stresses the strength of feeling and often implies strong intention or aim. In real estate investing if you don't have a desire to learn and grow as a human being and really get satisfaction out of it, then real estate investing is going to be hard to do. When I go out and look at a property it brings me a lot of enjoyment. Every aspect brings me joy from talking to home owners, figuring out how I can make a deal work, to buying the house and to finding a good homeowner or tenant for the house. Real estate investing may not be for everyone but real estate investing can offer anyone the financial freedom we all crave for. If you do not have the desire for real estate investing that is ok, it can still help you to live your dreams and help you to get where you want to go in the future.
Why is real estate investing an amazing avenue for anyone to live out all of their dreams? Let me ask you a few questions. Do you have enough money to do anything you want? Do you have everything you want? No debt? A nice house? Great Marriage? The freedom to do anything regardless of how much it costs and the time it takes? If you have all of these things then you are one of the few people in America who does. Most people may be working fifty hours a week and making just enough to pay their bills. In today's day and age most people are living pay check to pay check never really knowing if they will make enough to pay the bills that just keep piling up. If you cannot keep up with your monthly bills how are you going to plan for retirement or send your kids to college or have time to enjoy life. The answer to all of these questions is becoming financially free. Now it's not going to be easy everyone will have to get off the couch and out of their comfort zone. Real estate is proven to be one of the fastest ways to get your out of the rat race of the nine to five and begin living the life you deserve to live. Everyone wants something different out of their life. Some dream of traveling the world, spending more time with family, volunteering, golfing, laying on a beach, giving back to the community, or anything that will make them happy. There are thousands of things that make people happy.
Making it in real estate takes a person who has a strong desire to change their lives for the better and think big. Anyone can become a great real estate investor. It is going to take a lot of work and can be a struggle at times but in the end it will be the most amazing feeling ever. The people that make it in real estate investing all have a few things in common. First they run their real estate investing business like any other business out there. Second they get out there and network with anyone and everyone. Some people might be like me and have a hard time talking to other people. If you are that is ok, anyone can learn how to become a people person, it just takes hard daily work. You have to push yourself past your comfort zone. The third thing is that you cannot be afraid to fail. Everyone has failed at something but the most successful people out their learn from their failures. The fourth thing is that you have to put a good team together. I will go into putting a team together in a later chapter. The concept of putting a team together is so that when you don't know something you have team members that know what to do and can help you with questions. The can also make sure that you are not working yourself to death. You do not want to be the person doing everything in your business. Doing everything is a receipt for failure. You have to put together good people who you can trust and rely on. The fifth thing is that you need a mentor. Sixth and final is the desire to do it. No one can become successful at something if they don't want to do it and don't get satisfaction out of what they are doing.
  1. Setting Goals
Having goals is one of the most important aspects of achieving what you want in life. You don't want to just have your goals up in your head you want to write them down and past what you have wrote on the wall somewhere or in the bathroom mirror. You want to review your goals daily and read them out loud to yourself. This way you remind yourself everyday why you are building your business.
How should you start to write down you goals? First off you should think big, and by big I mean HUGE. If your goals are too small you will easily achieve them and have nothing else to look forward too. You should start off by asking yourself the question if I had all the money and time in the world what would I do, what would I buy, how would I spend my time, and how would I spend my energy. Are you starting to write these down? Well you should be. Think about what you want, spending time with family, traveling the world, the best cars, a castle, owning a small country, running for president, having the biggest real estate investing business in your area or in the country. Whatever your dreams and what you want out of your life, write it down. Some of my goals are becoming free, traveling the world, having a Ferrari, having 10 vacation homes all over the world. Right now I am just trying to get you out of your comfort zone of thinking and let your imagination run.
There are several ways to set goals. I have learned a lot of ways you can set you goals and there is no right or wrong way. The best ways that I have found to set your goals is to break them up into two categories. First your short term goals. This should be goals from a month out to around a year. The second is your long term goals these goals are you think big goals and what you see for your future.
For year one I like to first make a list of what I want to achieve this year and I will give you an example of how to do that. For year one you want to be very specific first you want to list what you want your income to be at the end of the year, next how much cash in the bank you want (this is money in your checking account, not assets). Next you want to list how much you are going to give. Giving is a very important, this can be giving to charity, giving of gifts to friends and family, giving to your school or anything you can dream of. As long as what you give brings joy to others who need it more than you. Next list what bad habits you have that you want to eliminate. Weather is be quitting smoking, spending too much on junk, drinking too much, working too much, not spending enough time with family, too much TV, not exercising and many more. We all have bad habits that need to be changed in order for use to grow as human beings. Under each of these bad habits list out some steps that you can take in order to quit them. If you bad habit is being lazy and not exercising enough what can you do to change that. Well you can get a gym membership or a home work out program. Commit yourself you following through with a plan to work out 3-5 days a week. For you to change these bad habits you have to be totally committed and follow through with a detailed plan you set for yourself. After you have your plans in place you should start listing several things you want to achieve or do in the next year. This can be start a successful business, spend time with family, travel to 2-5 places and so on. Now under each of these you should also write a detailed plan on what you need and what you need to do in order to achieve these goals. Finally you should take all of this information you have a write on page on what you see your life being over the next year. Doing this is a great exercise to really see what you want out of life.
Goals Year One
This is what I am going To Do This Year Income: $500,000 Cash: $100,000 Give: $20,000
Bad Habits that will be changes:
Over Sleeping 1. Go to bed at 11 p.m. 2. Use a timer and set it for 8 hours 3. Set the timer on the other side of the room
Buying things that you don't need: 1. Going out shopping less 2. If you have the urge to buy something think to yourself is thing item going to help me to achieve my goals of becoming financially free? 3. Tell friends what you are doing, so they can help to stop you.
What I want to Achieve:
Start a successful Real Estate Investing Business: (you should write a detailed step by step plan of everything you need in order to achieve your goal)
Travel: Where do I want to visit? 1. Gators football game (what I need to do it, money, etc)
And last your own page about what you want to achieve using words like I will and only positive words.
For long term goals you don't need to be as specific right now, but you should list them and under them list a few steps or smaller goals that need to be achieved before you are able to achieve them. With the long term goals always think big. Another good exercise for long term goals is to make a collage of you goals. Put pictures of the house you want on it, places you want to travel, a picture of your family, a number of what income you want in or anything you can think of.
  1. Learn
Knowledge builds confidence and destroys fear. If you are starting any kind of business you need to learn the ins and outs of that business. The best way I have found to learn about real estate investing is to read all about it. But once you know it you have to apply what you have learned. Learning and reading is just one step to take. There are thousands of books on the market about real estate investing and everyone has something you can learn from. You don't just want to read real estate investing books though. You also want to fill yourself with motivational and leadership books. Every successful person that I know if a reader and they all spend at least thirty minutes a day reading something that will teach them about improving their business or helping themselves to become a better person. Some of the best books that I would recommend reading are listed below.
  1. Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki (read this first and also ready everything in the rick dad poor dad series, great books to start with and will expand you mind)
  2. Be a Real Estate Millionaire by Dean Graziosi
  3. Flip your way to financial freedom by Preston Ely (this is an E-Book)
  4. Four hour work week by Timothy Ferriss
  5. The Attractor Factor
  6. Short Sale Pre-foreclosure Investing by Dwan Bent-twyford and Sharon Sestrepo
  7. Keys to success, by Napoleon Hill
  8. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
  9. How to win friends and influence people
  10. Any Book by John C. Maxwell (he has tons of amazing leadership books)
  11. Getting Started in Real Estate Day Trading by Larry Goins
  12. The E Myth by Michael Gerber
  13. How to be a quick turn real estate millionaire by Ron Legrand
  14. The Power of Full Engagement
  15. The It Factor
  16. Anything by Anthony Robins
There are tons more you can read but these will give you a great start. You should also read books on negotiating, sales, motivation, and biographies on American business people.
I hope this list gives you the knowledge it has given me. If you learn and apply what you have learned from these books there is no reason that you should not become very successful.
  1. Attend a Real Estate Investing Seminar
Attending a Real Estate Investing Seminar can be one of the best places to learn about real estate investing from some very well known experts. There are several seminars going on all over the country every weekend. If you live in a big city it will be very easy to find one. If you live in a town like Billings Montana you might need to travel a little ways to find one. Now most of the best meeting cost money to attend them. Some range from five hundred dollars for three days and some can be up to $20,000. There are a few that I would recommend. Than Merrill is a great speaker to go hear. I have learned a ton from him. You can find his company online by Google searching him. Also rich dad poor dad has seminars all over the country. I attended one of their seminars in Billings Montana for only $500 dollars and learned a ton from it. There is also Preston Ely, Larry Goins, and hundreds of speakers out there. If you find a great book that you really enjoyed, then just simple search for that person online and see if they are speaking somewhere or offer a seminar close to you.
Another reason I recommend going to a seminar is because they get you pumped up and motivated. I have not yet found anything else that just gets you feeling like you can do anything. When you get back from one of these seminars you will have tons of energy and knowledge. Every time I get back from one all I want to do is going out and do a deal or ten.
These seminars will also provide you with several opportunities to purchase amazing real estate investing tools, software or learning material at a fraction of the cost. Believe me when I tell you all of the low priced seminars try to sell you something. But a lot of times what they are trying to sell is some really good stuff.
Another reason to attend a seminar is to network with other investors and build relationships with them. You can meet other investors who you can partner with on a deal, sell a deal too, people who will provide you with deals and so on. You should have hundreds of business cards made up and try to give them all out. You never know how much one business card you hand out can make you.
  1. Learn About the real estate market in your area
Most real estate investors start their career off my investing around where they live. This is why I do my real estate investing in Billings Montana. You can venture out when you have more experience. The reason behind this is because we feel more comfortable with the areas and know the areas better. It is also easier to get local real estate information that we need. Investing in your local market is also cheaper to start out, there is less travel costs, you can see what you are buying and it may give you a feeling a comfort.
First you have to decide which part of town is the best place to invest in. This can be determined by what kind of real estate investing you choose to do. I have not gone over the types of real estate investing but some include rehabbing (fixing up and selling), wholesaling (finding deals and selling them to other investors), buying to rent, and there are a few others. These are the real estate strategies that I use for the most part. When looking at the market you need to see where other investors are buying their houses. Most of the best deals will be found in low to middle class neighbors hoods. By low I don't mean drug infested war zones, what I mean is blue collar safe neighbor hoods that might have somewhat older houses and houses that are not on the higher end price side. Now you can find deals in the higher priced neighbor hoods but most will be in the low to middle income neighborhoods. When looking where others are buying ask local realtors, other investors or appraisers.
When talking with investors ask them several questions such as what neighborhoods they prefer, what type of houses they buy (3 bed 2 bath), and what they do (rehab, rent, wholesale). You should not look at other investors as competition but try and work with them.
There are different types of markets such as appreciating markets, flat markets, and deprecating markets. Appreciating markets are markets that there is no enough houses or a very high demand for houses which causes the price of houses to go up. The reason there is a high demand for housing can be because of job growth, a very appealing area, or several reason. Flat markets are markets that have no or very little growth. This means that there is not a lot of demand; buy just enough to fill every ones needs. Depreciating markets are where there is a lot more houses than people to fill those house. This causes house prices to start going down. This can be because of a large employer leaving the area, a natural disaster or just over building. There is an old saying buy in a bust and sell in a boom. In depreciating markets you can pick up several deals, while in appreciating the house prices are going to be much higher and harder to find great deals. The deal will still be out there you just have to know where to find them.
Learning your market is another key to becoming successful. Real estate Brokers and experts in your area can be the best source of information for you. Learn to use them to find out what kind of market you are in. If you are in Billings Montana we are in a pretty stable market. Billings Montana has not seen the ups and downs that other markets have experienced. I will have to say that I have been noticing a little bit of a downward trend but not much. Once the first time home buyer credit is over with we might see a little more decline. Every market can vary by neighborhood, so make sure you know you market well. I have seen the same houses just one mile apart selling for totally different prices.
  1. Find a Mentor
Having a mentor to help you can be your biggest learning experience. Mentors can help you with any questions you may have, walk you step by step through the investing process, give you moral support, you learn from their proven system, and also network you with others in the business. Every successful real estate investor that I know says they owe a lot of their success to the mentors they have and had in their lives. I have had one of the best mentors around, my father. He is teaching me something new every day and pushing me to become successful.
When trying to find a mentor I would suggest network with the investors at your local real estate investors club meeting. There is a real estate investing club in Billings Montana that meets once a month. You can find information about real estate investing clubs in your area by searching for REA or real estate investors club then your area in Google. When you go to the meetings ask around who the biggest investors are. Then ask if you could get together with them sometime and discuss real estate investing. Ask them if they would consider working with you to get their career going. Offer your services as a bird dog. Bird dogs are people who go out find deals or leads about deals and give them to other investors. A bird dog gets from $500 to $3000 dollars depending on the deal. Make sure that you have a bird dog contract signed with the investors saying that if you find them and deal and they buy it that you get paid a certain amount of money. Being a bird dog helps you to build credibility with the investor and they are more likely to mentor you if you have something to offer them. If you would like to contact me with a question go to my web site Big Sky Property Solutions LLC.
  1. Your Real Estate Team
Building an effective team can make your life as a real estate investor a lot easier. You are only one person and cannot do everything or be an expert in every aspect of real estate investing. Going at a project alone can become one of the most frustrating experiences you will ever encounter. Many people have become frustrated and quite real estate investing because they try and juggle too many things. Make sure that when putting a team together you provide everyone with win-win opportunities. When someone knows that working with you is going to make them money they will put you as a higher priority on their list. But you have to prove it to them that you are the real deal. People to have on your real estate investing team include
o Real Estate Agents ( find the top agent for volume of sales in your area and other agents who work with real estate investors) o Real Estate appraisers (find an appraiser that has done a few hundred jobs or more and make sure they carry errors and omissions insurance) o Real estate contractors (good rehab crews that can get the job done in a timely manner, have 3-5 crews and on every deal get 3 estimates done. Ask for referrals from them and make sure they are licensed) o Real estate attorneys (every investor needs an attorney, they can help to protect your assets, make sure you find one that works with investors) o A property management company (can manage your properties and will give you leads on property they are managing that might come up for sale) o Title companies (take care of the legal process and make sure there are no liens against the property you are buying, choose one that does hundreds of closings a year) o Home inspectors(charge about $400 but will give you a great inspection and could save you thousands in the long run) o And your Mentor
All of these people can help you in various aspects of real estate investing. You might find that there are a couple others that are keys to your business but this is just a list of a few.
  1. Just Do it
There is no better phrase out there then JUST DO IT! Once you have learned all you can networked with investors in Billings and learned real estate investing strategies there is nothing left to do but get your feet wet. There is no better learning tool out there then doing a deal. Once you have completed that first deal you will know what to expect and find out that it is not as hard as you thought it would be. You will have learned what you did right and what was frustrating. Take that experience and ask yourself what would have made it run smoother. Apply that to your next deal. Then the next deal will be easier and it keeps getting easier as you go. I will say that every deal is different from the last but that what makes this business fun. You have to be creative and always keep on learning and growing with your business.
The average person never uses what they learn. Don't be average apply your knowledge. When going out and doing your first deal act like you have done 1000's of deals. The fastest way to change a habit is to act like it is true.
Five keys for success 1. Specialized Knowledge 2. Tools of a professional 3. Have the mindset of a winner 4. Mentors 5. Money and the knowledge of leveraging it (you don't have to have millions to invest in real estate, there are many strategies out there to use other people's money, or no money at all)
This is going to conclude this article about getting started in real estate investing. I hope this gave you some ideas about how you can get started. I didn't give you any strategies at this point but look for some in upcoming articles. These are simple steps you can use to get started. If you read this article thank you for listening.

2020.09.12 05:59 _dustykeyboard Beginner's Guide to Champion Carnival Participants, Expectations.

Champion Carnival 2020 Primer

Background info

Started in 1973, AJPW’s yearly round-robin Champion Carnival tournament is the highlight of the year. The Carnival has made stars, re-affirmed the status of the top wrestlers in Japan, or been a high-point in some of the most varied resumes in wrestling.
The tournament is AJPW’s equivalent to the G1 Climax, N1 Victory, Fire Festival, and the other promotions’ yearly tournaments, but predates them all. Normally takes place in early Spring.
Over the last two decades the tournament has opened up widely to outsider talent. This year’s tournament was supposed to have a large amount of foreigners and guests from outside promotions until COVID-19 shut-down every promotion’s ability to tour. Rather than the original 20-man field across 18 shows, the Champion Carnival is a much more modest 10 participants across six shows, sticking only with AJPW’s top talent and select top outsiders since the pandemic started.
Every show is planned to be LIVE on AJPW.TV for 900 yen per month (~$9-10). Billing is immediate, then on the first of the month. Every VoD is usually put-up by the next day. Issues after subscribing can be inquired about Here (machine translating your issue and the page is recommended; phone number is not required).
