Minecraft should work in stable 60 fps, I guess? Forza horizon 4/NFS Heat in 720 or 1080p and medium settings? DCS? I didn't buy it to play in 4k, max details and ray tracing, I'm fine with tweaking stuff. And since it's AM4 socket - cheaper ryzen 7s when?
Oh, and I painted my room - walls have a nice pale pink color. Perfectly matching what activities take place here....
Headpatting my Azur Lane shipgirls!
Poor financial decisions 2022 edition report:
Went for 80 boxes (the 20 for each type package) which is all I can spare this year to drop on this game.
58 days premium time
Skins for the Object 268v4, FV 4005 (last year), the Super Conq, the new Strv one, and the Rino.
1 SU-2-122 (the double barreled low-tier TD)
2 M3 Light
2 Harry Hopkins
3 'big' premiums - got the Char pretty early (within 20 boxes), then the Iron Arnie with my 50-box pity mechanism, and then the BZ in the last set of 10 boxes, so pretty lucky.
Overall better than last year, on account of nailing 3 of the main premiums. I also got about 2k more gold compared to last year, although less premium time (although this doesn't really matter as I still had over 300 days on my account as it keeps getting topped up by Battle Pass). I'm also pretty happy with the skins I got, the Super Conq and the FV one are very nice.
The event itself this year is way worse though - far more grindy and with a lot of dumb/useless gimmicks that I'm not interested in. Not a fan.
i was taken to task on this one (replay link)
so thought i'd ask for some purple advice as i just felt hemmed in with no way to help the team
map is erlenberg, north spawn, standard battle, tier 8-10, many heavies with 3 arties, we are one tier 10 short
our team completely abandons the east (as often occurs) setting up a linear heavy battle along the hill line west of the castle.
i'm platooning with another light who signals he is going to scout the west side.
here's how i see it:
1. 13:51 i start with an east scouting run, yes, i know soloing a flank is a poor idea, but figured a quick scouting run from a fast light would provide some intel, even though i have no supporting guns.
(i'm taken to task on this, mistake or no)
i find only 2 tanks and bail
to my surprise almost the entire enemy team crossed over to our side.
-was this move a mistake?
2. 13:25 i retreat and try to provide vision for meds covering our rear (north aiming east)
took a hit from a TVP and didn't really add much
so i'll call this a complete fail
i abandon it at 12:04 as 2 TVP's come in and wax our meds
-should i have stayed, pushed, or left?
3. 11:30 crossed over and start circling C-D 2-4 trying to provide some vision and looking for an opening for an arty run or flank, but feel totally hemmed in with no one aiming at what i can light
chased away a light at 11:17
but otherwise failed again; still have a gun for in game
-better move here? perhaps working central buildings?
4. 10:20 we've given up what pathetic map control we had with two collapsing flank
i make a last ditch effort to hold off the TVP and T49 on our northeast/rear flank
only to get shut down ignominiously
any suggestions appreciated
