> But they are an absolute beast for gaming. Absolutely loving 3D v cache and im seeing huge improvements over my old 3700x and the 5600x in my other rig. I heard there will be a 12 core model in the 7000 series itd be cool to see how it compares to the 5900x My 5800X3D runs really hot as well even with a 360 mm Liquid Freezer II (albeit I don't have the Ryzen 5000 offset mount for it yet). It gets to the 90 C temp limit when I run Cinebench and it's around 70-80 C while gaming, depending on which game. With PBO2 Tuner all-core offset of -30, it lowered my temps by 10 C in Cinebench, and now gaming is around 60-70 C.

Hey I stumbled upon this post, I use PBO2 Tuner on the Windows side right now but wanted to cover my bases in case I switch to Linux. What settings did you use in corectrl to lower your temps?

Good point on the leadership. Sometimes when companies go public, it's because the original management team and investors believe that their job has been done and they would like to exit. I don't have any indications from anything I've seen about YAGOO to indicate he'd want to sell in that manner. If we trust that its Cover's current key personnel that have made the company successful, then we should hope that they retain a controlling stake of the company, e.g.,Mark Zuckerberg at Meta. A problem that would exist regardless if Cover was public or private is a succession plan for whenever YAGOO and the current key personnel choose to retire. Here's hoping that Cover and Hololive are prosperous for a long time so we don't have to think about this.

I think there's a little bit of confusion regarding fiduciary duties of executives. I've seen some claims that mentioned that once you go public, you are under duty to your shareholders to maximize profit. At least in the US, that's [not actually a requirement](https://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2015/04/16/what-are-corporations-obligations-to-shareholders/corporations-dont-have-to-maximize-profits). [Duty of Loyalty in Delaware corporate](https://corplaw.delaware.gov/delaware-way-business-judgment) law means that executive officers have to look out for the best interests of the company, which is not necessarily profit at all cost. Regardless, shareholders and investors don't only magically appear at IPO. Startup companies can have funding rounds while they're still private, where angel investors, institutions, and venture capital firms can invest into the company. Depending on how active these investors are, they may already have a say in the company. From [Cover's Crunchbase](https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/cover-corporation/company_financials) page, it appears that they've already got a couple (although not sure how good Crunchbase is for Japanese companies). I think it's too soon to speculate whether or not Cover going public is a good or bad thing. For me personally, I think they have earned the benefit of the doubt.

You got this! Take it slow, read the manuals for each part, and have assembly YouTube videos for each in case you need visual references for when those manuals are a bit unclear. My go-to beginners tip is to never forget to install motherboard standoffs onto the case first, as if you forget that and directly attach the motherboard to the case, it can short circuit the board.

They have a [2020 CPU test methodology video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sg9WgwIkhvU) but I'm not sure if they've ever talked about revisions.

I added Inochi to that playlist without even knowing what Hololive was at that point. Probably thought that it was another utaite or vocaloid song and didn't look too much further. That playlist helped me get through the pandemic as I stayed at home playing WoW Shadowlands with my friends remotely. When some friends told me about Hololive a few months later, I was checking out each of the gens and checking out what music they had made. When I saw this [emotional performance of Inochi by Suisei and AZKi](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awHsi05P2js), I knew I had heard the song before. I went back to that JP song playlist and saw that it was the same song! To this day it's my favourite Hololive song, and it's cool to see what that song means to Nodoka.

I went back to that JP song playlist and saw that it was the same song! To this day it's my favourite Hololive song, and it's cool to see what that song means to Nodoka. Bonus: [IRyS' cover of Inochi](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCf4mFiR--w).

I think it was this match, United 3 Arsenal 1 from the [09/10 league season](https://www.premierleague.com/match/6934). Nani scored a beautiful goal where he took out two defenders in one move. Nani then also assisted Rooney for a brilliant counter, and Park added a third (also from a counter, textbook United!). This [video](https://youtu.be/w0piOJ-FymY?t=19) from the official United YouTube has all of the goals. I remember watching this as a youngster and man it really stuck with me.

Adding my 2 cents to the whole Twitter conversation. I agree that Twitter is full of controversy and problems, and I have no confidence that Elon's management will be able to fix them. Maybe as a whole, Twitter has been a net negative to society with how it has influenced discourse. On the other hand though, there seems to be a holier than thou attitude from segments of Reddit that are celebrating Twitter's death. Ironic, since I think that many of the problems that affect Twitter discourse can also be applied to Reddit too. I've always viewed Twitter and Reddit as a make-your-own-adventure style of social media. When there are debates and discussions that I think aren't suited for the platform, I choose to not engage with them. But for the fandoms and communities that I do enjoy, I've had a great time. Twitter has shown me so many artists that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. If Twitter does go down in flames, I won't be that bothered since the internet will find a way. But I think it will be a sad moment for indie content creator networks.

Not sure if it's just on my end or if it's YouTube acting strangely. I've checked out a few of her videos and the sound quality seems off with her mic. Her voice sounds very quiet in normal speech, but when she laughs there's a high frequency distortion and peaking effect. Her original song sounds fine to me though, did she record using that using a different mic than the one she uses for streams? Personally for me, a streamer's microphone quality is very important for me to consider continuing watching. I don't mind if the model (if they're a vtuber), the gameplay, or the camera (if they're non-vtuber) is scuffed as long as I can clearly hear their voice, they have a good mic noise-gate and compressor setup. I don't know how to speak Japanese so I can't leave this feedback for her directly unfortunately.

That's what gets me with these celebrity promoters. They are already incredibly wealthy but that notwithstanding, with their profile couldn't they get any sponsorship that they want? Picking crypto is absolutely egregious, I just can't understand the choice outside of pure greed. I've seen arguments thrown around in some cases about their management/agency teams setting them up and they themselves are just there to read off a script, but that still doesn't excuse it. It's their image and their mouth that the promotions are coming out of.

I have to commend this analysis and the GN team's commitment to responsible reporting and including that callout at the end. It can't be easy to make that statement when you have personal relationships with the parties involved, but they stuck to their principles and did it anyway. On another note, it's not just popular tech communicators that take this responsibility on their own, although of course their audience is larger than ours. It's on the community to make sure that we don't let speculation run rampant. Speculation isn't always out of malice and as Steve mentions, the hardware fandom is passionate and wants to be involved and engaged which explains the popularity of speculative content. Despite this, we have to call it out when misinformation becomes popular since that can have negative consequences.

AV1 has some nuance. The hardware encoder can be used for making recordings (OBS supports NVENC AV1 recently) and also transcoding (ffmpeg also supports NVENC AV1 recently) which is useful for creatives. Note that neither Twitch or YouTube support AV1 livestreaming at the moment. On the otherhand, AV1 decoding has many options. RTX 3000, RX 6000 GPUs along with Intel 12th Gen iGPUs cards already support AV1 decode, but outside of that there are two other methods currently: 1. Software (CPU) decode. I think the latest VLC players have a software based decoder integrated, and I've tested it and it works fine. 2. GPU accelerated decode. This isn't the same as having a fixed-function hardware decoder like what's being shipped on recent gen Intel, AMD, NVIDIA GPUs, but there are SDKs/APIs for existing GPUs that can help accelerate AV1 playback. I would think that anyone who's buying a 4000 series GPU already has a beefy CPU to pair with it, or perhaps already has a GPU for acceleration and thus AV1 decode is not that big of a value-add. The real blocker for AV1 adoption IMO is mobile and laptop devices that the general public uses. Having fixed-function hardware decoders used here will help save on power consumption. If we see Qualcomm, Apple, MediaTek, etc. including these in their SoCs, that will be the path towards wider adoption for AV1. Creative workflows already benefit hugely from the 4090's GPU acceleration for apps, I think the AV1 encoder is really just a cherry on-top to be honest. The 4090 is feature-packed and there's value to having everything in one card without needing a dual-GPU or dual-PC setup. Though, if someone really needs AV1 encode instead of GPU accelerated workflows and is being price conscious, the Arc A380 should suffice (which is what I ended up buying).

I agree with this, it's definitely frustrating that there's basically only RTX SKUs. For Turing (especially the 2060 and 2070), RTX wasn't worth it until DLSS came out and I'd think that there's still a contingent of users that still don't use RTX for ray-tracing. I reckon they'll never want to release non-RTX top-end cards because RTX, CUDA, and various ML SDKs form an ecosystem lock-in that NVIDIA wants.

I got myself an Intel Arc A380 to throw into a secondary PC for using its hardware encoders (primarily h.264 and AV1). I'm hoping that their top-line GPUs are competition for NVIDIA and AMD in the future, right now it's hard to recommend the cards to general consumers. As bad as the NVIDIA pricing is, I have to say for general use - having DLSS, GeForce Experience, Shadowplay, RTX Voice/Broadcast can't be understated. VTube Studio had an update a month or two ago where you can now use RTX Broadcast facetracking as a viable option compared to using Apple A12+. I think Steve from GN said that NVIDIA competes on features not price, and that's evident. AMD hasn't hit software parity for me personally but at least they are competitive at rasterization. Intel has a long way to go on both features and performance, and I hope they stick with it because the industry needs more competitors.

They don't understand that just because something can be done, doesn't mean that it should be. It's simply social etiquette, and for a hobby like vtubing I find it difficult to see why it's hard to understand. PL information comes from the social media algos, but it doesn't mean that we have to spread it further. If you know, you know, but I find it distasteful when people keep hinting at it like it's some secret when a lot of people already know but understand that we're here for the character. It's like going to a pro wrestling event and trying to break kayfabe to the fans sitting around you. We already know, but we're here to enjoy the event.

I have a triple monitor setup for my workstation that I run through a TS3+ dock. My work-issued laptop is a 16" Intel MBP, and man that thing gets hot. According to the power sensors, the GPU alone uses 19 W when I have only two monitors (1440p+4K) plugged in and the system is doing nothing but static web browsing. Fans are loud. My home machine is a M1 Max and I can run the same two monitors as well as the third (ultrawide 1440p). The SoC doesn't use more than 15-25 W of power while watching multiple livestreams, and the fans are still silent! I'll be very happy when the day that I'm provisioned Apple Silicon for work comes.

Long-term holds will benefit the most from compound interest/growth. If you are in the US, non-retirement brokerage accounts benefit from long-term holding as you pay less taxes via long-term capital gains (holding a position for more than a year before selling) compared to if you were day-trading or making short-term (less than a year hold) swing trades. As for what strategy you wish to employ (day-trading, swing-trading, long-term holding), it ultimately depends on how much knowledge you have and how much risk you are willing to take. I would say that it is difficult to time the market, and therefore for newer investors it's better to invest in companies and funds that you would want to keep for the long-term.

Got it. In that case you should always refer to your original investment thesis. If your metrics indicate that it’s undervalued and if price action isn’t caused by any factors that contradict your thesis, you may choose to hold or increase your position size. A solid investment thesis to begin with is difficult to validate unless you have experience in value investing, accounting and financial forecasting. If you want to share your model we can help give feedback. In general, if you are a long-term fundamentals investor you shouldn’t worry about stochastic price action in the short-term, so long as the investment thesis is still valid. That means essentially not looking at your brokerage app as often.

You mention that you “found a good stock” but end up too early or too late in your entry. What metrics are you even using to qualify that? If you’re investing off of fundamental analysis, shouldn’t you already have considered by some metric whether or not the stock is undervalued? If you’re looking for a simple technical indicator, then what you said just doesn’t make sense to me. Why would you want a metric that “doesn’t work”, what would be the point of doing that instead of buy and hold. If there were simple indicators that did work then it would be exploited by the market until the price inefficiency is eliminated.

There's a Rational Reminder podcast episode by Ben Felix about this topic ([RR #156 - Climate Change vs. The Stock Market](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=750PC7fRCc8)). It's a very detailed episode and I can't remember the exact conclusion that they came to, so I'd highly recommend giving it a listen. It's a podcast hosted by a couple of Canadians so it might be extra relevant for you. As for me personally, since I'm mostly in traditional broad-market index funds, I don't consider ESGs in my investments. There are broad-market ESG indexes such as the [S&P ESG index family](https://www.spglobal.com/esg/performance/indices/esg-index-family) but I haven't done any reading into their performance relative to the traditional indices. The way that I think about is that as an individual investor, I don't have enough capital to effect change in companies via shareholder votes, or driving up demand for green equities to incentive corporations to make pro-environmental choices. This is even more true for me because I don't invest in individual companies with a significant % of my portfolio. It's not something that I would want to risk my retirement on, if ESG equities trail the market. That's not to say that I don't value the environment at all. I try to minimize my ecological footprint (using public transit, reducing consumption of meats, prioritizing efficient electricity usage) as a consumer and consider the environment whenever making volunteer/political choices. The argument that as a single person that I can't effect change in this manner either, is also true. But honestly, these lifestyle choices are relatively risk-free for me and it's good for the environment.

He did, but how close was he to the play not working? He had to pay monthly premiums on his CDS positions in addition to his clients threatening redemptions. My takeaway from that scene is that in addition to your thesis, you need to have the right timing and maybe a hint of luck to profit. Just blindly saying that you're early and not wrong isn't gonna help you manage your position. For the apes, how much opportunity cost are they willing to wager for their bet? If they've borrowed money and can't afford interest payments or need to liquidate positions for whatever reason the day before the squeeze magically happens - what good is it being 'right' if they were too early to profit?

I mean, we don't know exactly how the ranked system works but some people have hunches about how it prioritizes individual performance. I will say, when I was climbing through Diamond, even if I lost a game but popped off individually (top of scoreboard on both teams), I would get +Elo for it. So if you think you are Plat and should be there, just keep popping off. Your mentality is holding you back.

I'm not saying that they're not trying to win. Players can choose to play ranked for multiple reasons, maybe they prefer the BR starts and no minimap. Maybe they are hoping that the SBMM is more refined in ranked compared to other modes so that they get fairer matches. It's their right to play how they want, as long as they're not literally griefing by throwing power weapons off the map, betrayals, being AFK. On the idea of smart play, there are going to be different playstyles for different players. Not everyone will be in agreement with what the "optimal" playstyle will be. Those with playstyles or abilities that lead to bad outcomes will naturally fall in elo as they lose games and vice-versa for those that lead to good outcomes. As long as you focus on your effective playstyles that lead to good outcomes, you will climb. There's just no point in caring what randoms do. If you are a good player, why would you be bothered what Gold players do when if you really are that good, you will climb out of that bracket in no time?

I think this frequently comes up in about any game with ranked ladders. You have to understand that some people just play the game to play, and the rank isn't the be all end all for them. You can't control them, you can't coach people in lobbies who do not want to be coached and who might not necessarily be playing to climb as high as possible. Comms are useful, but you absolutely can't start becoming toxic if people are missing your comms or not listening to your calls. This is ranked pubs, nobody anointed anyone IGL. What you can control your own gameplay and what mistakes you are making for yourself. In every game's ranked queue, not every game is winnable. You can watch Lxthul, Frosty, Snip3, or any pro player and they'll lose games in MM too at Onyx ranks. Don't stress too much about the losses, just focus on what you can take away and improve for yourself each and every game and you'll climb.

Hey so I use a 16" MBP as well for work and so far so good on clamshell. Probably been using it for three or four months now. I drive a 1440p and 4K monitor with it using a CalDigit TS3 Plus. Sometimes I unplug the laptop from the dock to work on the couch. If anyone who has used their Mac in clamshell for a longer timeframe can chime in, that'd be great! Temperatures are about 50-60c average on the CPU (I use [Macs Fan Control](https://crystalidea.com/macs-fan-control) to monitor it, didn't want to pay for iStat Menus). I leave the fan control on automatic right now and sometimes I do hear the fans but they aren't anywhere near max. Sometimes bursty workloads can kick the temps and fans up a bit though. As for battery-care I use [AlDente](https://github.com/davidwernhart/AlDente) to keep the battery from staying at 100% all the time.

OBS only goes up to 48khz sample rate, you can check this in the Audio Settings under "General". What you are doing right now with a 96khz input is causing a downsample when OBS converts that 96khz into the 48khz or 44.1khz that you select in OBS. On-top of this, depending what sample rate your viewers use (probably 44.1khz), their OS will convert your sample rate to their sample rate for playback if they are different. Theoretically all of this conversion can introduce noisy artifacts but it's not usually perceptible. But in any case, you don't have any benefit from your mic recording above 48khz, and I'd guess if most streaming software max-out at 48khz, you are not impacted by the mic not having 96khz sample rate.

It's a seriously light mouse that also looks quite decent. In the standard configuration it's 63g which other mice like the Model O Wireless and the Aerox 3 Wireless kind of match, but they used holes in the chassis to accomplish that. The fact that the G Pro X Superlight can do the same without hole cutouts is pretty cool. I came from a 95g G703 and I really prefer the feel of the 63g. Effortless glide. I'm not an expert on Lightspeed/2.4ghz wireless, or even the mouse sensor and switches so I can't speak too much about it there. Between this and the G703 Hero, I don't notice any perceptible differences between them on tracking accuracy. For me it comes down to, do you want a superlight mouse with no RGB frills and great battery life? If so this one is worth considering if you can stomach the price and find that the competitors are not for you. The mouse shape and aesthetic are personal preference so YMMV. Do check out r/MouseReview, they can go a lot more into depth about this. BadSeedTech on YouTube also has reviewed a bunch of mice in this superlight category. EDIT: As I mention in [another comment](https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales/comments/l2f7mz/mouse_logitech_g_pro_x_superlight_wireless_in/gk57n1k/), I don't recommend this drop specifically; I'd wait for MSRP personally.

I don't suggest paying more than MSRP for this if you can help it. I have one and really like it, but it's definitely "pushing it" for how much it costs. The Model O Wireless costs $80 and the Steelseries Aerox 3 Wireless costs $99 which represent a lot more value. I ultimately picked the G Pro X because I'm a palm-grip user and the other ultralight mice suit claw grip more. Despite how much I've liked using it so far, the price-tag still makes me uncomfortable and I got it at MSRP ($149) from Logitech directly (I got it on the last drop on 12/27, email notifications didn't work for me but I saw the post on r/MouseReview). If I didn't get it from the last drop, I'd probably pass on this deal. If you wanna know more about the mouse definitely check out r/MouseReview.

/r/buildapcsales/comments/l0xioo/cpu_amd_5600x_299_in_stock_bhphoto/gjwh2h8/

I agree there are benefits to the 5600x improved IPC like playing games in 1080p where the user wants to hit a certain framerate for their monitor refresh rate. That's a use-case that has immediate value right now, so if someone was holding out for that, that's understandable. I don't agree with benefits over time but that's just because in most cases I'm against future-proofing. In the specific context of games, I don't think we know for sure how things will play out. This is a simplification because these events aren't mutually exclusive depending on what games someone plays, but I see it like this: 1. Games demanding more single core performance 2. Games demanding more cores 3. Games remain more or less GPU bound People make a lot out of whether or not the 5600x with 6 cores and 12 threads will even be enough in a few years. I don't have a strong opinion on that either way, but my opinion is that no one can tell the future. We can make educated guesses where sometimes we will be right and come out on top (in the 5600x case, scenario 1) and sometimes we will be wrong. It's conceivable that even in some of these cases, a particular processor won't become unusable garbage, it'll just become "less-good". I'd imagine it would still work, so there's no need to worry oneself so much with min-maxing. And with regards to future-proofing, I've been a believer in buying things for value at the time of need, rather than paying more for potential need later on which may not be realized. I like what you mention about being able to wait. If there's no urgent need to get the parts now, waiting is sensible. I think people joke a lot about hardware enthusiasts always saying wait for the next thing (e.g. wait for Intel 11k, wait for 5600, wait for AM5, etc.) but given the current stock situation, it makes sense. It'll certainly save those people from the stresses of fighting off bots, cancellations, and backorders :P.

I've been sharing the HardwareUnboxed video to some friends of mine who are trying to put together a build and showing them that for GPU bound games at 1440p, the 3600 is fine. Either that or some of the Intel 10Ks are also fine. Yet they're still mostly convinced that they need the 5600x when for the games they play they would see more benefit from getting a better GPU (let's not even get into how poor 'value' getting a GPU is right now). It's ultimately up to them but the Zen 3 FOMO is a bit confusing to me.

Isn't that just what's going to happen when you play on 1080p (you mention in another comment that is the res you are playing on, correct me if I'm wrong)? From the video that OP posted, HardwareUnboxed shows that for 1080p is a CPU-bound resolution for many games. I would think that does not have much to do with the game itself but rather the relationship between CPU and GPU draw call latency. At 1080p the GPU is producing frames much quicker so a faster CPU can see benefit there.

According to PCPartPicker's estimate, the i7-8700 and 3080 FE will use 385W. You can use the site to add the rest of your components to get a more complete estimate. From there you can look-up to see if you can find what your PSU's efficiency curve is if you want to take that into consideration.

I would say it's still a good time to stream if you really want to. I can't comment too much about bans but DMCA should be avoidable unless a game you're playing has copyrighted music. I personally like to listen to my own music while I'm playing games on stream rather than royalty-free so I just end up using audio routing (VoiceMeeter) to play the music only for me and not the stream. I can't speak for everyone, but as a viewer I've never been put off by a streamer who doesn't play music, as that means I can just play my own locally!

Ahh I just checked my Mac OBS setup and remembered that you need an audio router. Have a look at this [article from SLOBS](https://streamlabs.com/content-hub/post/capturing-desktop-audio-in-streamlabs-obs-for-mac), it's more or less what I did. I use SoundFlower but not sure if that works on Big Sur, my MacBook is still on Mojave. The article mentions iShowU which should work just fine. Loopback is pretty pricey, I wouldn't pay that much for it given that long-term you wouldn't want to be streaming on Mac anyways.

Are you streaming with x264 or NVENC? If it is NVENC your bitrate might not be enough to do 720p@30fps [as NVIDIA recommends 3500kbps](https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/guides/broadcasting-guide/) for that resolution-framerate combo. This may not be preferable for in-game performance depending on what resolution of CSGO you play at, but if you can try streaming with x264 you may be able to stream 720p since x264 has lesser bitrate requirement.

/r/Twitch/comments/kpxp15/streaming_on_mac/gi0yyvx/

Is there a particular Mac only application that you are aiming to stream? I would generally not recommend it from a hardware perspective. In the past I had non-gaming streams on my Intel-based MacBook Pro where I was streaming some stuff I was doing on my desktop. Intel-based MacBooks can throttle really hard for long running extensive tasks (basically it gets too hot and needs to run the processor slower to prevent overheating). I would classify it as do-able for simple streams, but probably not ideal for intensive streams like gaming. No clue how well OBS works with new Apple Silicon MacBooks. If you are interested in streaming games, I'd highly recommend a Windows-based PC. On-top of the normal limitations of Mac vs Windows for gaming, [OBS itself has Mac-related limitations](https://obsproject.com/forum/threads/disadvantages-of-using-obs-studio-on-a-macbook-pro-16-inch-2019.115027/). If you are gaming, you can get an NVIDIA graphics card on PCs to use their dedicated stream encoder. This is what a lot of people generally use because CPU based encoding is computationally expensive. Ultimately it comes down to what you are trying to stream. If you really need MacOS, I'd probably recommend saving up for a Mac Pro for better thermal performance (less CPU throttling) or waiting to see how OBS progresses on Apple Silicon. As for adding audio from Mac to OBS, I did not have any trouble selecting the Mac's default audio devices in OBS when I was streaming. If you could describe in more detail what you were trying to do, I can try replicating it on my MacBook.

/r/Twitch/comments/kn5cat/streaming_audio_interface_and_microphone/ghiyuvo/

I have a Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen audio interface and a dynamic Audio-Technica ATR2100 (they released a successor ATR2100x now though). Right now I think you can get both for close to $200 on Amazon ($109 for interface on sale, $99 for mic). The interface has a headphone jack which you can use as a DAC and Amp for your headphones which should work for most unless the headphone requires a strong amp. One issue to note is that unless you speak really closely into the microphone, the [Scarlett Solo might not have enough gain for dynamic mics](https://support.focusrite.com/hc/en-gb/articles/360006972159-Why-is-my-input-signal-from-my-Dynamic-Mic-too-low-) unless you turn up the gain knob to max. I got a Cloudlifter CL-1 for my mic to add gain and am really happy with the setup now, but the Cloudlifter would definitely be too pricey for your budget. For your setup, I definitely recommend a dynamic mic instead of condenser for helping to only pick up your voice rather than the background noise. In OBS you can setup a noise gate (a must) and noise suppression (optional) that should be help as well. I'd recommend starting small, you can try the ATR2100x with USB first to see how you like it. If it's too quiet or you really want the interface for your headphones, try out the Scarlett Solo!

> It’s OK to be pissed about your team having a Stanley Cup drought. I think you worded this point a bit strangely; Canadian fans **are** mad that their **own** teams are going through a drought, though. It's just that it doesn't mean we are going to be upset that the rest of the teams that represent Canadian cities are simultaneously going through the same drought. I generally agree with your post though, the Stanley Cup isn't an international tournament. Personally I find this whole talking point to be tiresome as a fan of a Canadian team, which is probably why the responses seem defensive.

Now I hate dump and chase as much as the next guy when we've got such skilled puck carriers, but I think the fact that we are getting destroyed 5 on 5 is contributing to it. St. Louis is able to generate a lot of offensive zone-time 5-on-5 right now and it's killing our guys. When we're stuck defending in our own zone for the majority of our shifts, guys are going to naturally dump it in for the line change. Doesn't help that it was a back-to-back game. 5-on-5 notwithstanding, we could have had a chance if our powerplay converts even one or two times so we've only ourselves to blame. Anyways hope the off day is enough time for our guys to reset for Wednesday. Hoping that Myers and Toffoli can come back sooner rather than later because we desperately need them.

Also, last month Tim Cook and the other big tech CEOs (sans Microsoft) had to attend a [congressional hearing on anti-trust](https://techcrunch.com/2020/07/29/apples-app-store-commission-structure-called-into-question-in-antitrust-hearing/).

I'd suggest having a look at their latest earnings report. GCP is overall still growing, but the rate of growth is slowing down. This is the trend across the entire sector though, so it's not an indictment on GCP. It's still behind Azure and really far behind AWS on market share however. I'm not sure if it's profitable, but the revenue from GCP did help to stem Alphabet's overall revenue decline in the last quarter. They have also signed some high profile deals with Activision-Blizzard and MLB to use GCP. Whether or not you qualify the current GCP as successful or not is up to you. Third place is not bad, but of course they could be doing better. I'm not well-versed in Azure or GCP (I use AWS) so I can't tell you exactly why companies would pick one over the other. Lastly I'd suggest at least looking into it on your own as well. You can't really expect people to do all the due diligence for you, especially when you inserted text into your post just to pass the character minimum limit.

Does the cost of college include housing, food, and other day-to-day expenses? Or is it just tuition? Try to factor in any unexpected expenses you might have in the next couple of years, projecting as well when you expect to finish college and enter your career workforce. Basically, how likely is it that you need to spend that left-over money. If you have some additional income from a part-time job, that of course should also play into your calculations. If you are going with an 'aggressive focus' I am assuming that you are looking at a greater allocation into US equities (either through index funds, mutual funds, or individual stock picks). If you do need to spend that left-over money at any point in the next few years you should be a bit more cautious about what you are investing in, otherwise market volatility could leave you in a pinch at a bad time. If that is the case I would rule out individual stock picks. As for whether or not you should invest in individual stocks or a Roth IRA, I think you are misunderstanding what the types of accounts are. Whether or not it's a brokerage account or a Roth IRA, you can trade individual stocks, index funds, and mutual funds. You should look into the accounts more carefully because they have different conditions on contributing to and withdrawing from them, as well as tax considerations. Without knowing more about your situation, my default recommendation is to avoid individual stock picks unless you really know what you are doing.

I stream for fun. Most of the time it's just so that I can clip stuff that happens on stream when I'm gaming with friends so we can rewatch funny situations that may happen. Other times I'm playing through a game and friends are curious and watch along. I have no long-term view of making money or getting more viewers though so I generally just stream whatever and whenever. If you are intending to make money off it at some point, I think you'd have to at least have some considerations on how to attract people to your stream. Things like stream audio/video quality, schedules, and maybe evaluating of the games you are interested in, which is likeliest to get you viewers.

I'm in software engineering so I just preferred having first-party Unix-like support in Mac OS (this was before WSL existed on the Windows side). Before that I had Ubuntu on a Dell XPS, and while most things worked, it just wasn't as smooth and polished of an experience compared to a MacBook Pro. When I bought my MacBook Pro 13" in 2014, I valued those aspects of Mac OS as well as the build quality. The trackpad, keyboard (pre-butterfly), and retina display were all contributing factors when I compared it to Windows offerings at the time. That machine is still in pristine condition and my parents use it now since I've moved to a 2018 15". That being said, I think Windows OEMs have caught up in some regards on the software and hardware sides. As you mentioned, WSL is a big plus for software engineers. I've yet to play around with it on my Windows desktop but I've heard good things. Also, Windows OEMs have pretty good looking displays and well-built chassis nowadays. As we've seen with the butterfly switch debacle, MacBook Pro build quality isn't infallible either. If there still is a MacBook Pro price premium, I think it's harder to justify now as it comes down to the user's operating system and ecosystem preferences. Personally I find Mac OS a joy to work with so I'll probably continue buying MacBooks in the future depending on how smoothly Apple Silicon goes.

New planes are a large cost so I would personally doubt that cash strapped airlines will be in a hurry to retire their older planes. I would also think that customers care about a reasonably priced flight and a well maintained cabin instead of the actual age of the airframe itself so I’m not sure if airlines need to buy new to appeal to customers. If airlines decide they need additional fleet capacity, they can buy used or lease from each other rather than buying new.

It is in the body of the email content. Problem is since the spoiler is in the first line, and many email clients have a small preview of the contents of the email, it showed up. On Gmail web app this can be disabled by going to Settings -> General -> Snippets, but I mean Twitch should really understand the default UX of probably the most popular email service. To be perfectly safe, Twitch should have just not included the name of the winner anywhere.

20 mins is ideal IMO. My take on it is that if you can solve most questions you see in about 20 mins, you probably are well versed in most of the different problem categories (strings, arrays, graphs, etc). 20 mins is also a decent indicator that your problem solving approach is refined. You want to give yourself sufficient buffer time in the interview, because if you notice that you are going down the wrong solution path, you will have enough time to correct yourself. Plus I think that if you finish your solution quick enough, you can then start testing your code with inputs and edge cases, and even optimize your runtime or space complexities to really wow the interviewer. Also during my Amazon interviews, even the technical interviews asked some personal questions that took up 10 mins before we started the technical. So plan for those cases that you might not have the full hour.

I'm personally unsure of that and I don't want to give bad advice. If they ask you to do some coding over a Google Doc or something of that nature during the phone interview, I suppose you would have to tell them? Maybe a recruiter or hiring manager would have more insight into what to do here.

It was exactly how the recruiters said it would be. 5 interviews, 2 of them were completely behavioural for me (standard behavioural questions and a deep dive into your resume with a touch of the Amazon leadership principles). The three technical interview questions all seemed like LeetCode mediums to me. I guess it will depend on your interviewers, but mine seemed to enjoy graph questions. Good luck my friend, I hope you ace it!

I like to ask questions that show how interested I am in the team. For instance, if you know what kind of technologies the team will be using, you can ask them about why they chose it instead of a competing one. Another one can be to ask about what they think their biggest technological hurdles are. Also you can try to gauge what it would be like working with the team. I like to ask what they enjoy the most working on the team, or what drew them to the organization/team in the first place.

I also went through Cracking the Coding Interview and Elements of Programming Interviews, but not really in all that depth. Mostly read the chapters and do one or two problems from each. I recommend paying for LeetCode premium, they have a set of questions curated for most of the big companies. For context I am a new grad who just received an Amazon offer.

Thanks to all the people who have been helping me out the past few days, I decided I will go for the AKG K553 Pro.

Commented by /u/TerminatorXPS15 in /r/headphones on August 5, 2015 11:41:18

Kinda narrowed down my options a bit from stuff I've been reading after some searching, namely the AKG K553 and ATH-M50x. I feel that the AKG K553 Pro would be more suited to my listening tastes thanks to being more balanced, but I'm really worried about it not being comfortable after looking at the earpads and headband. Also I read that it doesn't really isolate very well, which is something I need because my computer is loud. I've been reading that the ATH-M50x is better for isolation and comfort, but not sure how it stacks up in comparison with the 553 in this regard. Also I've been reading that the M50x is bass heavy for a neutral/balanced headphone, so I'm not sure if it'll be to my tastes. So basically I'm conflicted about sound and comfort between the two. Budget: $100-$200 Source: Motherboard onboard audio. Requirement for Isolation: My GPU (Sapphire reference 7970) fan gets pretty loud (up to ~65% fan speed, not sure how loud in dBa) when gaming. So preferably something that isolates that to some extent. Preferred tonal balance: Pretty new to headphones so I haven't acquired a really specific taste for tonal balance. I suppose a nice balanced sound would be great for me, but if we have to be specific, bass isn't that important to me. Preferred type of headphones: Well I wanted to try a pair of open headphones until I realized how loud my computer is. A pair of full-sized closed headphones will be preferable, although I'd like to hear the feedback of anyone who has used open headphones with a loud computer (i.e. is the computer fan noise bothersome with open headphones?). Past headphones: I have the Creative Aurvana Live, does the job decently for me overall. Sound quality strikes me as very average, not great but far from bad. Comfort is fine, although sometimes it heats up my ears/head a lot but I guess that is to be expected with closed headphones. Preferred music: I listen to primarily rock, sometimes a bit of pop. Most of the time I just watch Twitch streams or game, though I'm not that big into FPSes, so I don't really need a soundstage that can help me for those. Improvements to current setup: Definitely better isolation and sound quality. Also if there is anything to help the earpads from heating up on the next pair of headphones I get, that'd be great. Here is my original post from a few days ago: Location: Canada, but I can probably look for Amazon.com listings that ship here, or just wait for a Massdrop.

Was reading reviews, the results look brilliant in terms of temps and noise. But the price of the G10, CLC, and heatsink might be a bit much for this time around. The air cooling Arctic Accelero Xtreme III doesn't fit my 7970 because it's too old according to their website, and their older cooler that does fit has no stock anywhere :(. I'll just remember to keep noise as a factor for my next PC, so for now I guess I'll have to stick with closed headphones.

Yeah, the fan noise bothers me slightly even while wearing my CALs, so I can't imagine it'd be very good if I got open headphones. I'm not going to be upgrading my GPU for the forseeable future (I play mainly Dota, so it's not too demanding), although if the open headphones in the $100-200 range are way better than their closed counterparts, I can look into some aftermarket cooling for the GPU. My room is really quiet when not gaming so if it weren't for the GPU noise, I'd go for open headphones no question.

Are the Browns quieter than Clears or is the difference in noise between the two negligible?

Wasn't expecting it to go so well, except for the 4-4 game where the team collapsed defensively. Needless to say, Shane ran rampant and carried the team to victory. We actually won the away fixture in the league against Chelsea as well, Shane scoring once there. In total that makes 10 goals in 4 games against Chelsea for him.

Cold Snap + Forge Spirit into Sun Strike might be able to kill him if you trade well when he has Bloodrage on. If you're Quas Wex, trade with Cold Snap maybe into EMP Tornado instead. If he sustains well with Quelling Blade + Bloodrage, you can call for a gank mid. In terms of items, maybe get pooled regen + Blades of Attack into quick Phase to contest last hits/denies? Otherwise just try not to be too low and always carry a TP to countergank if he decides to roam. His Thirst ability is a little bit crazy at the moment IMO. Although, could you be more specific about what kind of troubles you have against him? Personally I think it takes a lot of teamwork to be able to shut him down since he sustains so well in lane. To me it's a hero that your team has to shut down w/ playstyle, not just in lane. That means you communicate with your team when he's missing and what rune he has, you carry a TP to get yourself out of being Ruptured or to countergank if he roams, or you can ask your team to come gank him or countergank if he decides to dive you with his team. The biggest problem with Bloodseeker has always been snowballing out of control in pubs due to poor team coordination and greedy picks. With the changes to Thirst, he can snowball pretty damn hard. Just make sure to draft plenty of CC, or itemize into some.

You cannot shift queue it in that way.

Obviously this isn't guaranteed, but if you predict well it can be near instant.~~ EDIT: I was incorrect about this, /u/Kabatic's video shows how to correctly pre-cast.

I think she's quite good but maybe not suited to some of the group up and push strats that are happening lately. She's a good laner 1v1, but if she gets ganked consistently at gets put behind it's a tough road back IMO. If the TA is behind early then, while Psi-Blades are good for farming camps she won't have many levels in it early thus she won't have a real "flash farm" to recover mechanism like SF for instance. If the other team pushes in from there, your TA pick is then worthless. Other mids like QoP can gank to recover, or try simply to just dominate the lane. Lina can dominate the lane and keep it pushed out easily with Slave. DK can do the same with his Breathe Fire and some bottle crowing. Not to mention he fits the early push with his Dragon Form. So in essence there are just easier picks to play than a TA at the moment. On the other hand, she's not bottom tier since she still has some play (106 games, 53 pick, 53 ban, 13% pick/ban rate). [DatDota shows](http://www.datdota.com/stats.php?p=draft&team1=&team2=&team_side1=0&hero=46&player=&side=0&patch=12&season=0&event=&team=&prize=0&region=0&day_after=&month_after=&year_after=&day_before=&month_before=&year_before=) that she's being picked consistently near the end of the draft which means that drafters value her as a compliment to a strategy that they've been building up or trying to hide throughout the draft, or straight up as a pick that is really strong when there are no counters in the pool. Also, if the enemy doesn't have strong roaming supports or need to play a defensive tri to protect a safelaner, that opens up space for a TA pick late in the draft. Maybe some team can come up with something that breaks the current trends/flavours of the month that includes a TA. She's my favourite hero so I'd love to see more of her too.

1. Phase or Treads are usually more important for being cheaper and giving benefits towards early fighting or survivability. BoTs are good if you have been getting uncontested farm the whole game, and intend to farm even harder. This might be a bad idea if the other team is grouping up and looking to take fights that your team needs you to be in. If your team can hold, maybe BoTs work for some insane split pushing but it'd be highly situational. I'd prefer Phase most of the time for the snowballing ability it can give. If you manage to get some early kills, Phase Boots' +24 damage adds a lot to your auto attacks after you Remnant + Sleight + Chains + Flame Guard in fights. Squishies will melt, and you'll keep snowballing. Treads are good for extra survivability if you feel that they can chain stun and kill you quick, even with Flame Guard, not to mention the access to treadswitching. 2. BF is core simply with how well it synergizes with Sleight. It also gives you mana regen, but in contrast with Euls it gives you damage and a farm accelerator. I don't think buying Euls on Ember is a good idea full stop. BF lets you split push quickly, farm the jungle faster, and clear incoming pushes using Sleight which is really important for stalling out the game if you're behind. In teamfights, you can oneshot the squishes if they're even remotely clumped. Basically, it's usually the most optimal item for Ember and the more pertinent question should be "How many Battle Furies do I need this game?". This [guy did the math](http://i.imgur.com/Lk0gF08.png) behind it, although you shouldn't build maximum damage every game. 3. Skill build is dependent on matchup indeed. I like 2-0-4-1 by level 7, then max out Chains before getting anything in Sleight. Some games I'll get Sleight at 8 if I feel like I need it for landing a Chain. Although there are instances when you'll want to max Q or even W if you don't really need the Flame Guard (enemy lacks magical burst). 4. RoA is like Treads, get it if you need the bonus stats from the Wraith Band, otherwise feel free to leave it at a Basi. Drums is also really important IMO, the stats it gives and the active as a bonus are pretty good for Ember who is a bit squishy. I tend to get it before Battle Fury so that I'm a little more survivable during early fights. If you feel like you don't want to fight early, or don't need survivability you can skip it if you like. Normally I go Basi -> Phase -> Drums -> Battle Fury for my first few items. If the enemy is low armor, pick up a Deso right after that and you hit so much harder. Late game for me normally: * Boots of Travel * 1 defensive item (BKB, Linkens, Skadi) * Daedalus * 3x Battle Fury. In the case that I do want a Rapier, personally I'd discard 1 Battle Fury.   Hope this helps! I don't play Ember a lot by any means but all of the above is what I do when I play him. Here's another guide written by [SlashStrike](https://slashstrikedota.wordpress.com/2015/03/21/slashstrikes-guide-to-ember-spirit/) which can hopefully add more than what I've said.

Another part of denying is that the enemy only gets half EXP from the denied creep. So when you're playing 1v1 mid and you deny your creeps well, you'll be a higher level than the other guy which gives you opportunities to kill him in addition to denying him gold. Sure it doesn't make sense with respect to lore (An epic struggle between Radiant and Dire to destroy the other faction's base), but I don't think the main appeal of Dota is to roleplay anyways so not sure what the other guy's point is.

I think Draskyl once said there are just some games that are unwinnable because your team's heroes match up really poorly against theirs, and IMO this is one of those games. Don't dwell on it too much.

Your team's lanes are really weak, its understandable that you can't get any farm against a Viper + Clock lane when you have just an Omni support. In all honesty, the heroes that your team picked are just way too greedy against their team that has such a deadly and aggressive early game. In that case, you can only hope to survive the lane by getting XP, hope that the other lanes win, or hope that they somehow get a good gank rotation with WR/Pudge. You'll probably lose a bunch of towers in the early game, but in that case you need your team to make space by looking for pickoffs while you try to catch up and split push. If one of them TPs to come and stop you, then you delay their push and maybe your team can pick off one of the guys still remaining, push another lane, or farm up themselves. If your team wasn't trying to make a play somewhere else, it becomes really easy to shut down a splitpushing AM. Realistically though, this game is lost via hero picks.

Either way I still think Skadi gives him better fighting capacity with the UAM. Just because he has Heart doesn't suddenly mean that he can stick onto targets better because Skadi in fact does give near equal physical EHP to Heart. He has a BKB to take care of all the magic dmg so with BKB and Skadi active, the Skadi UAM means he can actually fight. EDIT: My bad on the misread though.

Commented by /u/TerminatorXPS15 in /r/DotA2 on May 31, 2015 23:04:09

Correct. Skadi gives nearly equal physical EHP when compared to Heart for Agi carries. Honestly his reasoning for getting Heart "because he's getting kited around in teamfights" is bad reasoning because he'd get kited around with a Heart as well since its passive doesn't work when getting damaged.

Hmm some things off the top of my head are Vengeful Spirit wave for vision into swap + stun as well as Blink Lasso Batrider (assuming your Bat player can get it fast). Anything that fucks up his positioning is really good. Gapclosers like Clock, Storm, and maybe lvl 6+ Anti-Mage if Tinker is low mana are good as well. Spirit Breaker is good in the early game when you can just be really sneaky with your charges before Tinker has Blink BoT.

Black^ had three games of it in the qualifiers I remember.

Against Root ([groupstage game 1](http://www.dotabuff.com/matches/1503578333)), he ran Quas Exort and the game went pretty late so we got to see the Lvl 25 Deafening Blast, as well as Octarine Core Invoker.

Before getting into specifics, I'll have to make a distinction from playing against her in a stack vs. in solo queue. I don't play much solo anymore so it might not be applicable but as long as you can take advantage of the fact that the other team might not be that coordinated, you should be able to take care of her with gank pressure. Arteezy said on stream a few days ago that Naga is pretty tough to play in pubs sometimes because you don't have any assurances that your team can protect you until you get Radiance. So as long as you get a couple of teammates to pick strong early roamers and consistently keep her behind throughout the game, you should be okay. Although this can easily go the other way, i.e. your team isn't coordinated enough to keep up a balance between pushing, farming, and Rosh control to close out the game before Naga is farmed. However let's just assumed both teams are equally skilled and coordinated. Remember a Naga carry pick going for Radiance is basically forcing the team that picks it into a 4v5 early game disadvantage. Pick a strong early game push team that can pressure the lane that Naga is in early. The goal is always to make the road to the Sacred Relic as difficult as possible. If she's mid, I think picking either a lane dominator (Lina, QoP) is good to keep her low on HP or pick a hero that fits early push (DK, Pugna, Leshrac). The supports or offlaner (Think SB) should consistently apply pressure to this lane and gank her as often as possible in addition to denying her runes. Block the hard camps that she might stack, or just ward it and kill her when she goes to farm them. If the other team has strong early game heroes to complement Naga, and rotate when she's getting ganked, at least your safelane carry (which is ideally a strong mid-late game hero) is getting good farm and you're denying the Naga farm. The other team's safelane hero might be getting good farm during this as well, but remember that Naga is a farm vacuum. She requires a lot of resources to reach her potential so the enemy safelaner will eventually have to sacrifice a bit if they want Naga to be relevant. Now if they run Naga in the safelane with really defensive and protective supports like Dazzle, SD, etc. you can opt to pick a strong aggro trilane to win that lane. Otherwise you can try early push and aggression to win all the other lanes, and spill that advantage into the Naga's lane. Once your team has an advantage, don't sit back and farm your own jungle and lanes because the Naga will catch up and win the game if she's left alone to farm. Now this doesn't mean suicidally throwing bodies for towers and or to kill her. Just ward aggressively in their lanes/jungle, and look for smoke ganks on either her or her teammates. This will eventually open up the map so that you can farm all 3 lanes, and their jungle, whilst preparing or waiting for Roshan. Make sure you fully deward the Roshan area because if they have strong team fight ults, a Naga Song comboed with those spells will be pretty game losing. If you opt to gank her, remember to bring silences and chain stun her effectively, otherwise she will just Song of the Siren and TP/runaway. This loses your team a lot of time and is pretty costly so there is always risk involved when ganking her. Although it is often easier said than done, play a controlled game, play for objectives, and don't over-extend. Push only when everyone is ready; i.e. everyone has their newly completed item from base or courier, everyone has good amount of HP/Mana, the lanes are reasonably pushed out. Get Roshan if you feel that your team can do it safely. After a successful gank into tower push, remember to back off to heal up, push out any lanes that need it, and maybe farm the jungle a bit so that your team can get the items that it needs for the next push. It's really a precarious balance, because too much grouping means everyone's low level and underfarmed, and too much passive farming => farmed Naga. If all goes well, your team should be able to end the game before she's hit critical mass. If she does manage to get a Radiance at an okay timing, remember that her illusions are still really squishy until she gets Heart/Skadi. Magical nukes will kill them really quickly, or you can draft heroes with spells that instantly kill them (Shadow Shaman/Lion hex, Lion mana drain, Pugna Life Drain, Disruptor Glimpse). I find Cleave (Battlefury, Sven, etc) isn't really that effective against Naga because a good Naga is consistently splitting up her illusions to split push lanes. I think Ember is an exception to this because in the eventuality that you do get the Naga to teamfight, Sleight of Fist gains more targets even if the illusions are split reasonably well in a fight. **TLDR; Always stay ahead of Naga in terms of farm! Pick a strong early game aggression/push team to deny her space, and close out the game before she becomes relevant. Hope this helps!**

To use this command, type /eventchat before connecting to a channel in the chat input bar and then proceed to connect to any channels that you want. By default it will connect to the channel you input in the Connect window but using Channel > Join Channel will still give you event chat for the channel you want to connect to. Hope it works for you!

Skadi actually gives almost equal physical EHP compared to Heart in Naga's case thanks to the bonus armor I believe. Although if the enemy has a lot of magical damage, I would always get Heart because Heart gives much more magical EHP than Skadi thanks to more HP. I defintely agree that the Skadi stats are really good since for Naga's illusions it gives near equal to Heart physical EHP, more armor, AS, and damage which not many items can do. Also it makes Naga a better fighter for when you actually need to join up with your team thanks to the stats and orb.

I personally like Maelstrom before Aghs because the procs of lightning help to clear out jungle camps and creep waves so that you're not completely reliant on using Power Shot to push because it gets sort of mana intensive even with a Bottle. It doesn't work on towers, yes, but for me I find the ability to increase GPM via farming jungle and clear creep waves even faster very useful. For your lineup, since you guys have a tri-core, it might have been okay to get the Aghs since you won't be farming the jungle very often since LS and Spectre will probably be there. Blink + Aghs would make you very potent at getting towers and creating space for your team. As for fear of getting caught, that is a very real concern since their team has such strong pick-off. When I play with my team, I have a buddy who makes space and even if he dies getting a tower or something, we push out lanes and put up new wards, and basically get more farmed while the other team is distracted. I understand fully that in a solo queue game, where the coordination isn't as high, that you might not want to go and splitpush to make space because the team won't use the space and you'll have effectively fed for no reason. But at the same time I think with a blink dagger and some predictive thinking, it's better to try and make something happen in a game where you're slowly going to lose. Think about where the Pudge and Void in the last couple mins. If you saw them on the other side of the map, you can push out. If they weren't on the map at all for a prolonged period of time either they smoked or they're just farming in their own jungle, or even Roshing. In that case as WR, you can just push up until their tower, see if they react. If they do, great, you've just made some space for your team by forcing out some TPs. You can then go push another lane or go farm up the jungle. If they engage on your team and its quite evidently a lost fight because some guy got caught out, just push as hard as you can because TPing back likely won't do anything at that point. If they burn TPs and catch you with Void Chrono, don't be too down on yourself as you've made a lot of space for your team and burned some important cooldowns like Chrono. Hell if you're fast enough with blink, you can get away from the Chrono as he time walks in. It's all about making more space for your LS and Spectre to come online.

I don't have the time to look at the replay right now, but I think you possibly could've built a bit better. I think Bottle -> Phase -> Blink -> Maelstrom -> Aghs would be a better buildup. This build lets you create pressure on the map by split-pushing while your KotL and team hold out by keeping lanes pushed out and getting farm onto Spectre and LS, although I can't assume that those players would be able to make use of the space you make. At the same time, split-pushing would be pretty difficult against a Void + Pudge + NP who could easily tp back and catch you out, but with some quick fingers and map awareness, the blink should be enough for a get away.

Hey, I did CS first year at UTM and just transferred downtown to UTSG this year. Even though I didn't go from UTSC to UTSG, hopefully I can be of some help. For the transfer, there's not really much more to it than making sure you do well in your classes this year, and handing in the application to transfer on time. Just make sure you take the UTSC equivalents of CSC148 and CSC165 which are needed for entry into 2nd year CS post and courses. You'll need at least a 67% average between those two courses, with a minimum of 60% in both to get into CS specialist/major downtown. Also I think the minimum cGPA they require overall is 2.5, but I can't seem to find any info on that. Try to aim above these grade requirements of course. If you want to know what courses are equivalent you can check out the Transfer Explorer on ROSI. You might also want to plan ahead with your electives since the breadth requirements at St. George might be a bit different from UTSC, so check out course equivalencies for that. Although it sounds simple on paper, I'll add some of my personal experience, maybe it'll be of some use as you progress through the year. Even if you don't like Scarborough now, try to make the most out of your experience because the transfer process definitely isn't 100% assured. I have friends from UTM that I talk to daily so don't alienate yourself from the campus just because you want to transfer would be my advice. Good friends in university are sometimes tough to come by, and if you make good friends you'll come to enjoy school a whole lot more. Make plenty of connections to make the best out of your time at UTSC. Another thing would not be to over-stress yourself with the pressure that you need to do well to transfer, because for me I found that to be a little nerve-wracking and hindered my academic performance a bit. Might not apply to everyone, but that's my experience personally. In any case, I hope this was of some use to you :). If you have any further questions you could PM me or better yet, ask your registrar. The registrar is insanely helpful with things like this. Good luck!

He's gone out and gotten the players that Van Gaal wanted. Brilliant showing from him, should shut up the critics indeed. We overpaid for some players yes, but that's the nature of it for a team that doesn't have CL football to offer. Maybe we could have snapped up players like Benatia before Bayern swooped in, but I think it'll take Van Gaal a whole season to begin establishing a long-term strategy in terms of where he wants to go with the squad. Short term, Ed should get praise for this performance.

Regarding Casillas, I think more of the blame should go to the poor positioning of Ramos, and to the fullbacks for being beaten so easily for each of the goals. The midfielders can take some of the blame too for not tracking the runners into the box but it can be argued that they're not midfielders known for their defensive attributes. Truly think that they need to go and get a more defensively sound player, don't think Kroos will be able to fulfill that role. Casillas didn't have a great game and Navas should definitely get the chance to start next game, but I think it's a bit harsh to pin this loss on Casillas.

Looked a clear penalty to me. The Torino player brought Medel down from behind in the box without getting any of the ball, which prevented him from taking a clear shot on goal.

Yeah I'm going to play devil's advocate here on this one. I've heard stories that the traffic after games is really difficult to get through, and it'll take quite a while for people to get home which usually isn't worth the wait for some. People are slagging off the people who are going to these games for leaving early, but the fact of the matter is that they're at the game and we're at home on Reddit isn't it?

Yeah, remember the opening game of the 2012-13 season when Everton beat us 1-0 via Fellaini's header? He was nearly unplayable that game, our defense simply couldn't cope. I agree wholeheartedly with /u/glintings analysis that his skillset isn't suited for the central midfield role that we need at the moment. I also agree that Van Gaal probably won't utilize him playing off the striker due to our abundance of more technical players that can play there. If it is true that Napoli want to pay £15m for him, we should take it.

I supported him up until the start of 2014. We lost on New Years Day to Tottenham at home, and then lost to Swansea in the FA Cup 3rd Round which was a nightmare start after he had ended 2013 pretty strongly with four straight wins. Against Fulham we put in one of the most embarassing displays of trying to break down the opposition I've ever seen. So many wasteful crosses and the squad looked bereft of ideas. Then we had the two 0-3 losses to Liverpool and City at home... It was clear he just couldn't get results against teams at the top of the table. I really wanted to get behind the guy, but I think his sacking was for the best. The summer transfer window as an utter debacle which he should take some blame for even if Woodward did him no favours. He didn't show much confidence in any of his press conferences - some of the quotes that came out were downright cringeworthy. For most of the year, he didn't seem to adjust his tactics or learn from any of his defeats and for me that's was a sure sign that he should've been sacked. There was simply no progress and no reason to believe that there would be an upturn in fortunes any time soon. Even though they were just pre-season friendlies and we've added Herrera and Shaw, van Gaal's United inspires me so much more so than Moyes' ever did. Ultimately I think Moyes is a better manager than his time here proved. He underestimated the pressures of being Man United manager resulting in mistakes early on in his tenure which snowballed into a clusterfuck that needed a reset. Rio and Giggsy allegedly undermining him didn't really sit right with me at all and I still feel sort of disappointed with them for that. IMO Evra put it best when he came out and said that everyone at the club failed and it wasn't just Moyes' fault.

Pushing lineup means that you want to get the Mek as soon as possible. I see that you keep on saying that someone else can get the Mek in another 4 minutes, but 4 mins is a lot of time wasted in a pushing line up. A pushing lineup wants to get towers quickly to get some gold and establish map control. If it can be achieved faster with Necro grabbing Mek, then he should do it. When you bring up other Mek carriers, Windrunner and OD would also benefit from getting a Force Staff which can be used defensively to save the Necro carry, while Beastmaster and Dark Seer can utilize a Blink Dagger to actually initiate. I don't think you should be complaining of people giving you terrible arguments because some of them seem just fine. More or less, I think your example of a "competitive game that I can't even remember" where there could have been a multitude of factors why the Necrolyte 1-position carry did not win, but you seem to just attribute it to just "oh he bought a Meka". Like the other guy said, Dota's way more complicated than just the item decisions you make. In the end, sure, Necro can get bigger ticket items given safe lane farm but if you've used him as a single core, you're probably going to be outcarried if the other team has one of the more popular carries nowadays like Alch, AM, Spec, etc. If you're utilizing him a tricore he's probably the best bet to hold the Mek considering how "greedy" a tricore is already.

Well if you're aware of the map when he's missing, the disables will buy you enough time for your team to rotate in if you're near a tower. I wasn't trying to say that the disables alone would be enough to stop him, but it gives your team time to kill him.

How do you expect them to balance it then? Ranked games give them an environment where they can judge whether or not their current balance has been effective or not. And guess what, according to Morello their current balance changes to Yi have not met their goals: "We're looking at some Yi fixes currently and want to get them in for 3.11 - I'd like to have some direction locked by Monday. Unfortunately, we did not meet one goal we'd hoped to - better in high-ranked games, and not as stompy in low-ranked ones. This is still occurring, which means Yi is in beast mode for a vast majority of players." If they didn't keep Yi enabled, they wouldn't have had the statistics to figure out what more needs to be done.

Naga net goes through magical immunity and Huskar's slow from his ulti goes through as well. Both are blocked by Linkens however. To answer the OP's question, I'm not sure how well it would've worked since Linkens can only block one disable before going on CD.

They were doing a great job of avoiding bad fights, but then took some crappy ones like the engage on Lina that resulted in a self team wipe. They got outplayed indeed, and outdrafted. It's not unlucky with the Timbersaw pick, since they picked Timber before QoP so that's an outdraft. The only lucky thing was as Bruno noted, that Mushi got loads of invis and DD runes which definitely helped (like the bottom tier 2 dive where he walked in invis behind) and the DD rune helping to melt Roshan quicker than Dig could anticipate. Orange were definitely the better team in that game, they utilized their lineup and executed much better than Dig.

An off laner is a player who lanes in the hard lane, which is synonymous with the term off lane. The hard lane is defined as the lane where the creeps meet closer to the enemy tower, this being the top lane for Radiant and the bottom lane for Dire. Usually an off laner is put against three opposing heroes in the lane where they attempt to keep the off laner out of EXP range and try to kill him. This is why off lane heroes tend to be heroes with some sort of escape, are heroes who benefit more from being alone in lane to get experience (remember EXP is divided amongst nearby heroes, if you're solo you don't have to share), and do alright without farm. An off laner's goal is usually just to stay alive and get EXP, anything more than that is typically a bonus. This is dependent on the heroes in the game of course :).

They were in a good spot until LGD decided to do Rosh. Dig had no wards in the area, not sure if it was dewarded (I think so because LGD had a sentry there, but I didn't see) and they didn't realize it until Rosh was low HP. Sneyking decides to try and steal it with a blink + BKB on QoP but Sylar picks it up and Sney is instantly Fiend's Gripped. Rest of Dig decides to march in but they get RPed and Ravaged and then die. Rest of the game was just bad positioning from them and taking bad fights. The RP and Ravage weren't ever stolen and used effectively by Rubick, LGD.cn's teamfight was just too strong for Dig despite the advantage they built up.

Na'Vi is just playing on a completely different level than Dignitas right now. They just outplayed Dignitas plain and simple and given Na'Vi's form going into the match, this was to be expected but I do admit that I expected Dignitas to put up a better fight. They were so afraid of losing the early game that they kept throwing themselves into the fights without really thinking about it. Fogged walking blindly into high ground at night time to look for a Venge stun or swap just exemplifies this. This is their first International, so I think the nerves have gotten to them in the DK and Na'Vi games because in the times coming up to The International (well except for their atrocious form a few weeks before TI), they were certainly playing more level headed Dota. I'm hoping for the best against Fnatic tomorrow as Dig fan, and hope that we get a game off of them. ~~If Na'Vi 2-0es LGD.cn and we get 2-0ed by Fnatic and we finish tied at 7-7, we go to the upper bracket via tiebreaker I think (since we beat LGD 2-0).~~ Whoops if we tie then tie breaker games will be played.

Dota 2 and League of Legends. Dota 2 because it's probably evolved into one of my favourite games of all time, and the fact that The International 3 hypewagong ot the better of me. Me and some friends grinded out so many games to get all we could out of our international battle bonus. If you have friends who have thick skin and are willing to learn, Dota will be the game that you guys bond over for ages :). You can make infinite strategies, and really develop each other to become better players and have more fun. League I play because some of my friends don't like and don't want to learn Dota and that's fine because the game just isn't for them. I play because the general playstyle of the game is much different from Dota and is kind of refreshing, even though the core concepts of the game are identical. I have my criticisms of the game though, but that may be because I'm a bit more biased towards Dota. But that doesn't get me from not having fun. Some other friends and I had a blast making a split push composition tonight in game, fun like always :). Some might think that you should only play only Dota or only LoL but I honestly think that playing both is the best way to go.

Commented by /u/TerminatorXPS15 in /r/Games on August 4, 2013 01:41:58

I miss them a hell lot too. How else would other regions catch up to Korea if they never play against them? I'm all for an LCS + international tournament break format, it'd just add a lot more excitement to me than what the LCS does. For example, Dota's The International was great today because the NA teams got to show the fruits of their training by performing well against Chinese teams (Dignitas and Team Liquid 2-0ed Chinese opponents). International tourneys would be great for the pro league scene, as teams could see how they stack up against teams from better regions.

"As far as DOTA2 goes. The game disappointed me greatly. It just simply doesn't feel like the Dota I know and love. I played LoL for over a year just waiting for my beta invite to Dota2.

Which is essentially what mobas are.I played LoL for over a year just waiting for my beta invite to Dota2. After only a few matches I stopped playing it for good.

Some pro players have written some guides for [Dotahut](http://www.dotahut.com/) but they're low in numbers. [Dota 2 Alt-Tab](http://www.dota2alttab.com/) has brief guides on how to play almost all the heroes (some new ones are missing). When I was a newer player I'd go to DotaFire for some guides as some are actually pretty well written. Just make sure that those guides are recent though, because patches have changed how some heroes play recently. Also Reddit's hero discussions (one every two days I think) are good places to pick up some information on how to play heroes. Today's is [Skeleton King](http://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/comments/1h9220/hero_discussion_of_this_day_skeleton_king_sk_28/).

Commented by /u/TerminatorXPS15 in /r/DotA2 on June 15, 2013 01:25:41

Man you gotta call them out on that if they're being assholes to others. I have one friend who kinda flames on chat when the game isn't going well and gets pretty nasty to the other randoms that we get matched with. For instance, we played with a Gyro who was building Aghs and a Naga who kept using Song at the wrong time. Game wasn't going well because of SB and Nyx snowballing. He started flaming them for shit play and stupid builds and they of course reacted badly. I calmed down the whole scene and gave them polite tips on how the game could be won and they listened and eventually we pulled through and won the game. On our private Mumble I was pretty much telling my ragey friend that his flame was unacceptable and was just making the people he was flaming play worse because it creates a hostile environment. It's just a lose-lose situation, it doesn't help to win the game and it's just verbal abuse of others. Although luckily for me my friend is a little more accepting of what I have to say, it sucks when you have to correct stubborn people.

Loved the free HD streams after being subjected to 480p during MLG Dallas I think. I'm pretty sure I'll regret it tomorrow as I have some tests to write and some assignments to turn in, but oh well. Sleep is for the weak :P.

Regardless of all the mistakes, was very entertaining to watch!
