    This may not be correct, but I got the impression that Wallace, while intelligent, was more of a vulture than an inventor.  In the short movie he very clearly states that his "patents" are preventing hunger, he doesn't say his invention.  I may be reading too much into it, but it's a very specific wording.  There's also no mention (that I can remember) of him having any success with replicants before buying out Tyrell.  Then there's his difficulties in reproducing Rachel's abilities (will leave vague to avoid spoilers) 30 years after Tyrell first created her.

    He's an underachiever with a God complex, standing on the shoulders of giants trying to feel tall.

    One of the three shorts (I think 2022) that they released in a lead up to the film premier shows Wallace talking to a group of people. He states "My Replicants will never rebel, they will never run, they will simply obey". He's found a way to make them completely subservient as opposed to Tyrell's Nexus 4's, which went rogue in the first movie. Still more of an iterator but impressive regardless. 

  2. I don't think people had realistic expectations if they expected it to do really well. It's an expensive sequel to a niche sci-fi film that most people haven't heard of.But I think anyone who found the original even somewhat interesting would enjoy it, as I did. The soundtrack was fitting and the visuals were euphoric. 

    @AdrianK I think Leto might have gotten Suicide Squad levels of screen time here. Keep in mind Tyrell wore very thick glasses in the original, it's fitting to make Wallace blind in this one. 

  3. Binning threads because people ask what we think are stupid questions isn't really the right path to go (not without a non-snarky explanation). The official forums will have people answer "it's not that good of an upgrade I got to the Tier X just using the stock gun you should be fine hurr durr" followed by whatever other mess the official forums have. I think people who are new to this forum would appreciate us being less snarky and elitist to newcomers. OP could have meant to ask how much he could look forward to the upgraded gun for all we know. 

  4. One feature that seems to be exclusive to OnePlus is their inability to keep promises. OP2 was slated to get Nougat and they just ditched it. That move killed any chance of me considering them and solidified them as just another crappy Chinese company. 

  5. Your flagship options for Android are pretty much the S8/S8+/Note 8, LG V30, Sony Xperia XZ1/XZ1 Compact/XZ Premium, HTC U11, or wait until the new Google Pixels. All of them are pretty pricey right now. You can probably watch some quick Youtube reviews to gauge what you want to be honest. If you can play around with them in a store, even better. I'd find something to hold out on until the Pixels are announced and then make your decision. 

  6. I'll be either quitting or taking a super long break from tanks very soon (got some irl stuff I'd like to take care of). But here's a neat little progression that I've waited for a long time to post. All it takes is a ton of battles apparently. And inspiration from our holy idol. I'll never hit 70% overall but this is close enough I guess.

    Can confirm. I played these 136 games over Thanksgiving break when I was able to go back home. ~66% half solopub and respectable stats output. I felt pretty rusty and the first 5 games were pretty weird-feeling but once you get a good playing model ingrained, it's hard to forget. Also probably why it's hard to improve for anyone that hasn't bothered to, they need to relearn some basic models that they've gotten used to. 

    5 more points to dark purple! :nyes:

    @_Steve I only took a shot in the dark for EU integration, not sure what all would need to change

    Doesn't seem to be working for EU, it just says this

    I'm getting a similar problem on NA right now. @TheMarine0341 Do you have this on your end? 

    Never mind.

    Anywhere from 80-95 is ok. Any higher and honestly it's dumb imho. Sure it means you can see things as a whole better, but it also means you can't focus on what is in front of you as much.

    Think of it this way:
    Do you want all-encompassing but shallow knowledge or deep but very compacted knowledge?

    Ideally you want a mix between the two.

    You can still focus on what's in front of you, it doesn't really affect your aiming that much. It may look weird at first but once you get used to it, anything less than 120 is just gimping yourself imo.

    Merges have never really worked unless it's extremely early in the process of forming clans. Hell even the crabs spidy merge was a mistake. You lose your leader and top players and have it replaced by a different clan (although probably as good as the top players who left), and it falls apart from there. I mean obviously no clan is going to last forever, but it's going to last much longer with a strong leadership and constant self improvement. But this is a video game, and that constant "self improvement", people come away from it as something sucking their life away, or they leave the game for real issues, and you'll have to continually change people. You can last quite a long time like -G- did, but it'll eventually come apart even if you get rid of inn-actives and have a strong leadership, while improving. It's pretty much impossible to maintain as well.

    G's problem was partly because they didn't get rid of inactives. Nobody challenged them either, and I can only assume the atmosphere got pretty boring. From what I know, that's a big part of why Ox left and formed Bulba.
