  • Dude, I heard yesterday there's more than 3,8 million refugees in Poland alone. For reference, that's more than the entire population of Croatia. I mean, where do they even stay? How is it even possible to find a place to stay for all of them, physically? Doubt any country in the world has enough place to shelter so many people? Where do they stay? Warsaw? Krakow? (I've been to these 2 like 5 years ago, nice places btw) And considering half of the refugees are children unable to work that need to be provided for instead, how does Poland even manage?

    They're spread around the country and a lot of them stay at the houses of regular people who took them in.
    Did you like Dragonflight?
    MasterBlaster

    Yes and no - I think what they've shown looks decent and I like the idea of going on an adventure with dragons instead of rushing straight into fighting another world ending threat, but at the same time I feel like the announcement felt pretty a bit light on features and with every Blizzard product, I'm witholding my judgement until the beta is out and we can see all the details.

    I just realized I don't care about Dragonflight one bit. There's literally nothing there to hold my attention. I don't like graphics at all. Dracthyr Evokers look terrible. Talent trees, while good concept in the idea, I'm 100% confident they're gonna fuck up class design and looks like they already did. Heck all interupt spells are no lonnger gonna be baseline, but talents instead, e.g Counterspell is no longer baseline, hence most people won't even pick it, and even now most people seem unable to use it, now without even having it, things are gonna turn pretty tough. Revamped professions, meh. New zones, that are mostly old zones made a new, meh. How to train your dragon also nothing special. It might even turn counter productive, for regular mounts will only serve as ground on the Dragon Isles. However, it has motivated me to watch "How to Train Your Dragon" movies for the first time, so I might give it a try.

    Idk, when BfA was announced I was like: "Oh, this is super fun, it's gonna be awesome..." and I was wrong. Then when SL was announced I was like, meh. And I was right. Now, we shall see.
    Dude, have you noticed an increased amount of refugees in your everyday life? I heard there are 2.5 million refugees in Poland alone. That's insane. Had to ask, sorry.

    Thanks for the answer. When I ask the same question on Twitter or Reddit I get called a "Putin bot" or "troll" momentarily. Sigh, I guess it's nice to know that the refugees aren't having a rough time being accepted at least.

    Btw, I thought the Polish themselves often tend to migrate to the western and northern European countries (Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Benelux, Scandinavia, France, even Spain and Italy). I didn't know foreigners were coming to Poland even before the war. TIL.

    Dude, I just saw on TV half the refugees are underaged children. How do they even communicate? They can't speak Polish? Heck, I presume at least half adult refugees can't even speak English.

    The biggest help is that there were a lot of Ukrainian immigrants in Poland prior to the Russian invasion, many of whom learned at least the basics of Polish and can now help as translators. Some refugees also know a bit of Polish or English and they're helping too. But even without that, Polish and Ukrainian have some similarities, so some basic communication is possible even if neither side knows each other's language.
    After reading about the current Activision-Blizzard scandal, I'm starting to think that the memes about Bobby being the devil had a lot of truth in them. Yikes.

    Sorry, but I'm really not interested in starting (or paticipating in) a topic about Blizzard - it's not going to change anything, besides raising my blood pressure.

    haha! Oh so you can't stand them. Anymore! But I do not understand for how long are they going to do things... why wont people rise against them, why wont justice system get rid of them... are they that untouchable? Like any other company.

    As far as I know, their employees are in open revolt and demand Kotick to be fired. Various institutions are also investigating them. It remains to be seen what comes out of this, though personally my hopes are rather low - you don't get into such high positions as ATVI executives by caring about people and not knowing how to exploit the law.
    Will you be renewing your sub for 9.1?
    I cancelled mine, and then renew it literally after a few days, lol. I want to unlock flying as soon as possible.
    MasterBlaster
    MasterBlaster
    I already did, but man... I'm so, so far behind from my 9.0 adventures that it will be a while before I even catch up with the old stuff, let alone unlock flying :D

    Do not worry, you only need to reach Renown 40 (which can now be done in a few days) and complete your Covenant Campaign (takes a few hours, if you have enough Renown), no turtles. That said I am now doing the achievements that'll likely be required for a Pathfinder, just in case.
    MasterBlaster
    MasterBlaster
    I'm not worried :) I think 9.1 stuff is easily accessible and as for Renown and other things - I've learned that I enjoy WoW the most when I do it at my own, rather slow pace :D

    just wow.

    As far as I remember, Blizzard went out of their way to censor out some (all?) of adult language in Reforged :)
    MasterBlaster
    MasterBlaster
    In all seriousness, I think the most logical explanation is that the original was rated in times where people were less sensitive, so whoever did it likely didn't see the game language as "bad". And then it just never got re-reviewed. Reforged on the other hand got rated by someone with modern sensitivity and the rating reflects that.

    According to their reviewer(s), Reforged contains an instance of the use of the word 'bastards'.
    Thanks for showing your appreciation

    I think most of what @staniks has written in this other thread
    ... may apply to this guy.

    I don't know enough about programming to judge people who want to make a new game. I'm just not a huge fan of people not realizing that if you want people to follow you, you need to give them a reason to want to do it and saying "oh, I want to do this thing, come join me" is not enough.

    Hi, so you've been playing SL since the beginning? You're like the 100th person I asked, but how good is it? Compared to BFA? I mean how good is the questing, zone design, dungeons, Castle Nathria?
    Venombite
    Venombite
    I've actually bought SL, couldn't resist the temptation. (lol) To me actually WQs aren't that bad, while some of them are bad, or boring, I'd take Flappy Bird and Marry Poppins Umbrella any day over Scrollsage Nola screaming "Another Turtle made it to the Water", "I've seen worse, but you can do better" all the time. Torghast is boring. The Maw I like, aesthetics, quests, the Eye even, but I hate no mounts rule.

    How long have you been playing it?

    Like 15 days. Completed the leveling after a week, and max level content for like a week. Why?

    This is the kind of technical info I would have expected to find on BNETDocs...
    https://bnetdocs.org/welcome

    rotfl, one can sign up for the technical alpha of D2:R and the game can even be pre-purchased, but the status of any of its dev channels is still blank according to WoWDev?? Intriguing...
    pyf
    pyf
    ... but have you noticed how D4 has two of its channels active, including the developer one? (fenris_dev)
    MasterBlaster
    MasterBlaster
    One of their dev updates said that they had an, I believe, company-wide playtest of the first "act", so it's possible that they had to set something up for that. It would explain one channel. And the vendor one sounds like something for a 3rd party, maybe for next-gen console testing? Just a guess, though.
    pyf
    pyf
    ... but the question remains: why does D4 have an active dev channel, while D2:R does not have an active one according to WoWDev as of this writing, considering the fact that the future of Mac support is still... unclear?

    Are the devs working on a solution for those who want to run D2:R natively on modern Macs?

    (Post) lmao, that "Power" guy is either mentally retarded or a hired Blizzard shill. Though I'd suspect the first option since Blizz wouldn't even care to pay for a shill to promote that which they do not allow to be mentioned.

    (Post) Thanks a lot lad, their customer support always seems to be reasonable when their consumer is reasonable with his proposition. Once again thanks a lot, your feedback was very helpful. :) All the best!

    Sadly, voting counts most. Otherwise you'd do it the anarchic way.
    Sad. We're having issues as well but not at this level. Corruption is what keeps people "concerned".

    Yeah, I vote every time I can, but still - I don't mind people protesting and expressing their opinions "the archaic way". I'm just pissed off that this whole thing is happening at such a terrible moment and the authorities add fuel to the fire instead of trying to calm people down.

    Dude, is Polish your mother tongue? How similar is it to Czech or Slovak? What about Russian or Ukrainian? (I know Polish uses Latin, while Russian and Ukrainian use Cyrillic, but apart from that) Is it multi intelligible with any of those?
    If you're uncomfortable with the question say it and I'll delete it.
    MasterBlaster
    MasterBlaster
    Yes, Polish is my native language. As to how similar it is to the languages you've mentioned - I don't know any of them, so it's hard for me to compare.
