  1. Gotta admit, it feels a little weird seeing you around. Weird, but good.

    1. Nepenthe


      Haha, it's a bit weird being back. I'm just casually hanging tho.

      I know the feeling. I was gone from here for probably over a year and just started coming again casually. Now I visit here daily again (though I don't always do very much).

  2. What are y'all doing?

      i just realized who made this status after almost an hour


      Hope you've been good the past couple months/years(?)

    5. Nepenthe


      @Dejimon11 If it wouldn't have been, such a shame. I'm not a staffie anymore. |3

      @Ferno Ayyy Ferno! I've been good! How about you?

    6. Ryannumber1gamer


      a blast from the past came back to represent the best frog boi 

    7. Nepenthe


      Lucio fans get a PRRRRROMOTION

    8. Ferno


      @Nepenthe Been alright, even more of an art nerd now but I still visit here regularly even if just to haunt the statuses/ lurk a thread or two out of nonstop nostalgia.

    9. Ryannumber1gamer


      The frog boi was my first gold gun on Overwatch, he is best boi.

      Granted, I don't get the chance to play him anywhere near as often as I used to, since I've usually got to end up hopping on Zen or Mercy for heals, but I love playing him whenever I can, especially for those environmental kills

    10. Nepenthe


      @Ferno I know what you mean. I should haunt every now and again, maybe when the next Sonic game is released.

      @Ryannumber1gamer Oh, I one-trick Lucio to the max. I let other people pick up main healer slack. I like the movement freedom he gives, as well as being a skirmisher and harasser. You wear a lot of hats on Lucio. Current goal is to hit Diamond; got to the 2900s once.

      @Nepenthe I just logged in so I may be LTTP (got back from work), but cool to see you drop in for a visit! It's been such a long while.

    15. Nepenthe


      @Milo Long time no see! It's actually heartwarming to see so many of the older folks.

    16. Ryannumber1gamer


      No one's ever really gone

      I somehow clicked on early 2013 status updates just a couple hours ago while I was asleep so it took me a while to piece together I was back on the main page bc of this lmao


      I'm personally in uni now tryna get a degree and experience n stuff, having a bit of issues with work but hopefully itll all blow over soon. Good to see you around and doing alright, though!

    18. Nepenthe


      2013 status updates. Has it been that long? Jesus.

      And good luck on Uni; trust me I know that road's tough, but you can do it! Good seeing you too as well @The Deleter

      To answer your question, surviving.
      It's nice to see you back 😄

      Three years?!! OMG. 😲

    24. Kuzu


      We figured you moved on to bigger (read: Less eccentric) places. Glad to see you back tho. 

    25. Nepenthe


      Bigger? Yes. Less eccentric? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    26. TCB


      Is this the arc where old faces return for a thing with the current cast after the big eventful arc as a downtime thing in my shonen animes

  3. When the cooldowns are reduced:


    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Me and my friend basically have a combo that breaks total mayhem at this point, he goes Doomfist, and I go Sombra. I take down abilities, leaving characters defenceless to his attacks.

      And I swear, there is no greater feeling in this world than constantly deactivating Pharah's abilities.

    2. Nepenthe


      Sombras are getting good now and it's slightly frightening.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      Don't worry, she's still pretty terrible on console. 

      Well, mainly because no one can aim to actually finish off characters on console, so what typically happens is 

      >deactivate ability

      >no teammates around

      >shoot desperately to try kill the enemy

      >three enemies kill you

      And that's Console!Sombra.

    4. Nepenthe


      Well, PC!Sombra, in the right hands, is a beast. 

      Note, in the right hands. I had one match where I literally kept punching her to death. It was kinda sad.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      On console, her and Ana are kind of in the same area. Both can be really effective in the right hands, constantly deactivating abilities, being sneaky, EMPing at the right time etc etc, but Ana's problem is most players don't have good aim, especially in High Platinum/Diamond and in Quick Play, and Sombra doesn't have a lot of people bothering to learn her effectively. I've been using Total Mayhem to try learn her because there's more of a safety net there for screwing up, it allows me to learn good ways to flank enemies, and take down their abilities before getting out, or if they're weak, finishing them.

  4. Now that you're back, what are your thoughts the Forces Story trailer?

  5. What have you ladies been up to while I've been working?

      Nep is ready to beat everyone at MK8.

    3. Nepenthe


      I would actually prefer to cooperate and play Overwatch. I main Lucio, because someone has to keep the DPS dumbasses alive with a friendship circle. Now come over here and let's have a party on the payload.

    4. DiamondX


      But I don't have Overwatch...

    5. Nepenthe


      This saddens me greatly.

    6. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon
    7. DiamondX


      But I want to get it. Don't know if  PS4 or PC.

    8. Nepenthe


      PC. Faster updates, a working reporting system, and better aim assist controls. Some characters are apparently nigh unplayable on console.

      @Jovahexeon Ace Joranvexeon I don't have Smesh.

    9. Strickerx5


      I thought I felt a disturbance in the MK8 force...

    10. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon
    11. DiamondX


      I'll see. I want to get the game but I'm not that great...

    12. Alex2Beta


      currently procastina--


    13. Boomer


      Hooray you play a healer.

      I mainly play Mercy.

      (Although I am wearing a Rein t-shirt)

    14. Nepenthe


      xD I got tired of teams never putting a healer on so I started instalocking him. Plus Lucio is super fun to play, and I'm guaranteed a gold medal in something without having to be the best killer. So why not?

    15. Boomer


      I just like people owing me :lol:

      And I mean normally I choose between being tank or healer, way too many people just play DPS...

    16. Nepenthe


      I only like tanking if I've got a got healer who's gonna pocket me. Just stand next to me and I can do a little work as Orisa.

    17. DiamondX


      What would be a good starting character?

    18. Wraith


      I was bout to take a break myself but I'll say hi to you before I do. Been a minute

    19. Nepenthe


      @Diamond Dragon X Soldier is recommended as the starter because he's a jack-of-all-trades gateway character from traditional FPS games. If you've touched CoD, you'll know how he plays. Plus, he's got some nice abilities like sprint and area healing to give you staying power. However, feel free to try everyone in Quick Play games until you find your niche(s). You should ideally be able to play one single character in each of the four classes.

      @Josh Long time no see!

    20. DiamondX


      So I have to main 4 characters?

      I played OW once  when it was a free weekend.

      I think I played with Soldier 76.

    21. Nepenthe


      Well, I main Lucio. However, I can be effective with Soldier, Pharah, Reaper, Junkrat, Winston, and Orisa. Sometimes, Lucio isn't needed or isn't working as well as I'd like him too, or I'm just dying too often. Team comps and skill levels can alter the flow of a match on the fly, so to be as effective as possible you need to be flexible. But that's the fun of Overwatch.

      If you want to main only one character however, no one's going to fuss if you main a healer or a traditional tank. xD

    22. Kuzu



    23. Ryannumber1gamer


      Overwatch and a Lucio main, two good decisions at once. 

      I love playing Lucio myself as a main healer, he was even my first gold gun and the character I trained to comp with in terms of healing, at least at first.

      But then I realised I'm on console and unless playing with friends, typically end up getting stuck with a team who don't wanna group up because as we all know, flanking on defence is the best way to handle things.

      and that's the story of why I have to play Mercy on Season 6 as opposed to the funnest healer around.

      But yeah, good to see you around again.

      @Diamond Dragon X It's not a case of having to pick mains, but Overwatch is built on team composition and in general, trying to be flexible. Every hero is simple to pick up and have skills that transfer over to other characters, but again, it's all about hero composition. If you want to win, sometimes you have to bite the bullet and pick a character you might dislike or not play who you want to play as in order to help your team. In most cases, if your team runs 5 DPS characters, running Hanzo or Genji, or someone like that typically means your team will likely lose.

    24. Kiah


      Of course you show up when I'm napping as I am absolutely exhausted from working so much...

      The working world is something else ain't it? Nice to see you around here again Nep! ?

    25. Nepenthe


      Hi Kiah! Long time no see!

      And it certainly is. I close again tomorrow. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun.

    26. Kiah


      Closing...that's the story of my life girl. I'm scheduled to close 5 nights this week...

  6. So Priebus got fired/resigned and it was announced on Twitter. You can never tell what's gonna happen in a day in Trump's America™.
  7. Sorry to say, but we don't really allow list topics of this nature; this thread should give you a good idea on what kinds of topics we do and don't like to see.
  8. I don't think people here understand the gravity of what McCain did. They've been hammering the healthcare bill so many times because of budget reconciliation where you basically get a toss-up on a bill and get to vote on it for 50 Senate votes instead of 60. If it doesn't go to a vote at all, as what has been happening, you get to start it over with reconciliation rules still in play. Instead of doing the Merry-Go-Round yet again, they allowed it to come to a vote in the Senate because they presumed that they finally had the votes to pass it through McCain. However, he said no, against everyone's expectations. That means it's dead for the entire fiscal year (they don't have 60 votes) and McConnell, Ryan, and the rest of their objectivist, obstructionist ilk can thoroughly go fuck themselves. Letting it come to this point was ultimately the best case scenario for at-risk Americans and Democrats, especially since McCain is probably not long for this world anyway. Republicans are now stuck between a rock and a hard place-- They've got nothing to show for all of the theater they've done, and they've further opened the course for a blue sweep in midterms should they try this shit again next year (and they probably will, because campaign promises and their inherent general assholery). So, cater to your deplorable constituents and remind the rest of America that you tried to kill them last year, or actually do the right thing at the risk of your seat in deep red counties? Decisions, decisions.
  9. Here's the utterly delicious kicker if true. Basically, they're doing this to force Democrats to potentially campaign on an obviously egregious violation of human decency come the midterms (else they face potential backlash from their own base), hoping the Rust Belt will decry this as the Dems playing (non-white) social politics and vote against them out of spite. So congratulations to Hillary on ultimately being right. Even Republican politicians think their own base is deplorable enough to use this as political leverage.
  10. So Trump randomly decided on his own to disbar transgender individuals from military service because fuck them (also probably needs a distraction issue.)
  11. Here's a video showing absolutely ridiculous billiards shots I didn't even think were possible:
