It had it's moments, any movie with time travel is going to be messy.  It did worry me that they don't seem to have any idea of what to do with Captain Marvel.

 

I shall spoiler this just in case:

I think they did know what to do with Captain Marvel. Make her as useful as possible without taking too much screen time.

They basically wrote around her being as powerful as she is by saying "she can't be here because......stuff, cyabye!"  and then dues ex machina-ing her back in later.  The explanation that she wasn't there for the plan that was supposed to save all those people totally took me out of the movie for a bit.  That's not knowing what to do with her, that's giving up on finding something for her to actually do as a character.  I've heard she's better in her movie, but I haven't seen it yet.

Great, just as my back pains were getting better, I develop a constant toothache, and I'm not due back at the dentist to get the tooth fixed for another two and half weeks.

If you still play floaty boats and didnt see it theres a button in the 0.8.7 patch notes to opt in to a free commander respec period for the week after the patch goes live.

Its right below the section explaining the new AA mechanics (which still sound stupid).

One of my recent YouTube habits is watching mountain biking. I think it is fun to watch but not something I'm particularly interested in doing. This one is fun.

Whelp, I managed to get an emergency appointment today to get that filling done, yay.

 

However, the toothaches may persist, in which case I'll need a root canal job done. Which will suck.

...and will be painful...and will be expensive...I give thanks that to date (knock on wood) that I've been blessed with good dental health with minimal intervention by professionals.

I personally didn't like it as much as I thought I would...

 

I'm going to go the other way around...I went in with the attitude "impress me damn it" and for the most part I was. As always, your mileage may vary.

I miss South Coast. I don't remember if it was unbalanced, I guess it was, but I liked the general layout and the theme. 

 

And yet they brought back Province.

 

(TBH I didn't like Severogorsk)

 

South Coast was known as "Crimea" on the Russian server...which might have some bearing on why it was yanked.

I was in match with you in your Excalibur but I'm afraid my head was REALLY not in the game and I sucked big time 

 

Congrats on getting it!

 

Was that the game where you were in the KV-2 on Prok? I was surprised you achieved nothing as you're statistically a rather better player than I am. If I had been in your position I would have gone village and tried to harass folks camping the the north side of the hill.

Yep, that was it. I pretty much never go there as I consider it a deathtrap. I should probably have tried to derp snipe at the hill from just west of the tracks.  I think I thought that our team was badly positioned - everyone on the road maybe?

Certainly that IS shouldn't have been there...but that player had very few games and still had yet to appreciate that if you have a viable heavy you need to be in the fight.

I think it would have been better overall for her movie introduction to have come after the IW stuff was over, just simpler and cleaner overall.

 

Also, twitter and 4chan are still garbage fires:

Yeah, it looks like I'm going back to the dentist; late last night the tooth started hurting, a constant dull throb of pain, different to a toothache nerve pain but still painful. It gets worse with pressure like biting, so I can't eat. I'm trying to get seen again today now, which isn't easy.

 

And the pain response is making my irritable stomach play up too, fml.

So, some of the Parkland shooting survivors came up with a "plan" to decrease gun violence.  It's good for a laugh, at least.  Among the proposals are the following gems:

 

The creation of a national licensing and gun registry.  Would also apparently cover ammunition.

A ban of all "assault weapons" with a mandatory gun buyback program

A ban of all "high capacity" magazines

Installing a “national director of gun violence prevention" that is answerable directly to the President

What's your issue with the banning of high capacity magazines?
