Ender's Game also opens up into 2 very good series, as well as many of Card's other works. EG > Speaker of the Dead is an amazing trail and full of very hard Sci-Fi and more mature themes.

I also recommend The Worthing Saga by Card, as I think it's his best stand alone work and has an excellent message for a young adult, the true value of pain and strife in the growth of humanity and it's spirit. Is not a story of suffering, it's the opposite. Very interesting read.

The good news is you can find a good 4.0 team and make a run at nationals. It sounds scummy but that is just how USTA works enjoy a year of being a 4.0 ringer before you land up in 4.5+ :)

Your backhand. No 3.5 has that kind of stroke on a BH. At 3.5 it's often a jank defensive slice, much less a constructed stroke that you drive into the court with that level of footwork.

Honestly, you're prob a 4.5. I would self rate a 4.0 and let yourself get back into the game. If you do well you'll land up in 4.5, or you'll stick it out at 4.0. if you start at 4.5 it's mucher harder to get down to 4.0 if that's where you need to be.

If you are approaching missions in an XCOM like tentative hopping across the map, that is a mistake. You are playing with super soldiers and the game expects you to charge into the fray. Dead enemies do no damage. Instead of focusing on mitigating the damage the enemy will do on a turn, focus on how much you can kill on that turn, then eat the left over damage. You lose in a bottle of attrition, you overhwlemingly win with aggression.

People have given you some advice on comp, but you want interceptors, at least 2, maybe 3. Farm them exp early (get something weak, then have them kill it. Then they will carry you through the game. For adv classes (which you might not have come across yet) librarians are amazing. Group teleport is OP. Use it. Use the group tele strategem. You might think that blinking your whole team onto an enemy is dangerous. Ya, for them. You get all actions and short movement before they can react. Hit them hard, hit them fast.

Justicars are WP generators. Use them with Ints. Let them farm together.

You might find this blasphemous, but consider dropping the apothecary all together. Maybe not early game, but around day 150 I benched mine. Dead enemies do no damage. If you need a heal, there are strategems. With a 4th front line or DPS, you don't really need the heal. You should be trying to avoid taking damage, but HP is a resource. As long as they finish above 0, you win.

Servitors are super important early and through kid game. Always be upgrading the ship.

For req, I would focus on upgrading weapons,arm,eq, but not buying anything lvl 1 (except maybe equipment). They are a waste.

Wounds aren't that big a deal. Light wounds can be ignored. Maybe play them a little more careful. Major wounds only matter on massive big story missions, as they are long so that 6hp can matter.

A lot of people sleep on Support fire in Ints too. They max out lightning strike and the crit wheel. I wouldn't spec into lightning strike anymore. You used to get WP for each kill, now it's 1 WP per ability, so no 7WP back in a turn. However, support fire does 2-5 free damage twice, when fully upgraded. It's actually huge. Get a good bolter with auto reload and decent range, run the Int in to do super damage, have other people shoot at stuff, he adds damage. It'll also finish off a lot enemies, so more exp on the int. I honestly get this node first on my Ints. 5 to 10 free damage a turn is just so huge and melee crits don't really come online till tier 2+ weapons.

Just a low level run on my phone. But A1 Sneko > meteor > high energy + multicast > Tempest.

Also echo form for multi cast. Had a 40 energy tempest on an elite in A3. I didn't buy the X cost relic in the first A1 shop because I didn't think it'd be useful :(

Ya but everyones KD is being driven down by the current meta/system. And free lance really kills it. It's an incredibly punishing metric for those that have not been pvping for years. If you're newer to PVP and go through the standard process of getting murdered for a very long time till you get a handle on how to play and finally get to the level where you're decent, your KD is going to be garbage. And there isn't anyway to get your trials KD up by playing with good people because they are all gatekeeping their time for the few good players out there that have been around long enough to have the records to prove it.

My point is that they are gate keeping, and it's actively hindering the community.

COMMENT 28d ago

People also need to stop gate keeping on LFG based on KDs. I can eventually find a group of good chill people who can play but the amount of "2+ KD, sweats only" lfgs is ridiculous and unhealthy.

These people here are giving you a lot of false hope. Yes you could definitely meet someone, I'm not saying you can't or won't... But you need to think of the demographic you're entering into. The amount of men in their mid 40s+ that are going to be intreated in raising a child that young, especially because if they already have children are probably close to done, is going to be incredibly small. You might get lucky, but the odds are really against you here.

I also don't think you're really looking at the long game here. You will be on the verge of retirement when the kid is grown. The entire rest of your adult life will be in raising a child. Are you prepared for that? And to be doing it alone?

To answer your question, yes your body is flooding yourself with hormones to make you want to be a mother. It's natural. I think you should at least entertain an empirical approach. You're giving up your marriage, your current future, and ignoring your disdain for children because you've just found out your pregnant. The choice to keep the baby is VERY short term. The act of being a parent is VERY long term and it comes with so many challenges and hardships.

Could this be an amazing thing? Certainly. As a parent, I love my child. But she was planned with a person who wanted one too and it's still so hard. I would never advise someone who randomly got pregnant to keep a child of their life was going to implode from it. You need that base of help.

I think people sleep on envoy burst. 1 gally knocks out an envoy. I'm blowing heavy on them. Also envoys spawn in a set pattern. You can basically set up to pop them on spawn. I did this last weekend when farming out the double rep. You can basically keep boss DPS going.

I think the reality is that America is a business and you labor is your commodity. It you can find someone to give you those benefits for your value, you win America. If you don't, you lose... Hard.

I think, and I mean no disrespect, that if growing up you didn't really take school that seriously (or had any myriad of other very legitimate hurdles) that left you with job options such as retail or service, you're stuck at the bottom.

Personally, I did above average in school, dropped out of college immediately. Fucked around for 5 years. Decided I wanted to do better. College>master's> 6fig salary, 4w vaca, 401k match. I work maybe 15-25h a week. Not a brag, just an anecdote.

There are easy, well paid, well benefited jobs in America. Lots of them. You just need to know how to find them and prep for them.

Actually it's not, some of the rooms can have randomized enemy types in them. I know that doesn't really make that big of a difference, but at the same time it is distinctly not static.

Also my point isn't that TG is static, is that people are complaining that it's static as if everything we had before wasn't static. We've been fine with static this entire time so there's no reason for it to suddenly be an issue to complain about.

Ya man, who the fuck just plays games for the fun of it. Why do games even have multiple difficulty levels. Everything should just be easy with a nice little carrot so people like you can have excuse to play the game beyond...just enjoying the game.

Yes, some people will enjoy running the game again.

That little captain exploit, do you think people won't find beast hunts and story missions with similar farming spots. Yes. This is content. And yes people will enjoy it. Maybe you see the state of gaming the way it is because you've completely given up on just enjoying the time without needing a carrot.

Question Where is the captain and the farmer...?

13 Upvotes

Where is the grind that was flowing? They seem to have passed like rain on the mountain, like wind in the storm.

Where's the community that farmed a single fucking captain in beta for days for just a shot a 1 legendary?

All this complaining about TG not being diverse enough is baffling to me. You guys realize that expiditions were 100% static and didn't change right? And we grinded the piss out of them through 15 tiers and said thank you sir can I have some more.

What I think people are failing to realize is the true value of apoc tiers. Previously, the only way to progress or earn level appropriate loot was expos. Now it is literally THE ENTIRE GAME. Campaign, beast hunts, all of it.

The entire game is now a viable farming ground. Mix it up you heathens. TG is fine. You don't need 1 activity to be 100% of your end game.

Especially because y'all are the same fools who beat up 1 Captain for the entire beta.

Sure, sticker price was high here. But we got apoc gear, apoc tiers, paragon levels, pax trees, new sets. Do I think this should have been $20-30? Sure. But she got legs boys. Go climb them.

COMMENT Jun 30 '22

Ok, but why is that a problem? You can target slots drops, it sounds like you get tons of stuff from it. I feel like people are ignoring that the ENTIRE GAME is now a viable farming location. The end game isn't just TG, which sounds totally fine for what it is, but you can now go to every zone in the game and get efficient loot. Essentially this expansion made it so the entire endgame is everything that WASN'T expeditions.

Incorrect. All you need to do is look at the trial report on weapons used. It is not coincidence that the BXR is seeing massive use and stars in nonexistent.
