2023.06.08 23:26 JayDAshe Thank God someone used a "desencyclopedia"

or "uncyclopedia" to put words on what I mostly think what Kamen Rider Decade truly is, and what is truly meant to be.
Japanese, but everything's here. And yeah, potential spoilers ahead.
It's full of funny, quirky and referencing thingies that makes it so perfect, yet it's initially made for troll. Just the "Overview" section is why I made the post you are currently reading (slightly edited for argumentative purposes).

Just for short, the story is mostly inexistant (that's what Wataru Kurenai says in the winter movie [TN : they're talking about that scene in MOVIE Taisen 2010]). Simply because... it's a fest. It kind of looks like it has been given setting, but in actuality, there's none. The meaning added to the characters' actions as well as why how are they led to play their roles is all done to make us think that it's some kind of foreshadowing, but most of the time, it's frankly not. As he [Tsukasa] says, "I got the gist of it" [TN : 大体わかった a meme in Japan, since Zi-O at least], there are still many plotholes left after the show. So if you care, you lose, that is the essence of Heisei Riders.
\"I got the gist of it\"
The reason I fell on this page, is that I was searching for images for the Narutaki-like Riders (1-Go, Kuuga, Ryuki & Den-O) in All Rider Super Spin Off, for the French wiki. Actually, this recently was an issue on the English wiki, due to their names all redirecting to Narutaki, and the fact they may or may not actually be Narutaki is highly debatable.

(1) Kitty Pryde

(1) Nebula

(2) Angela

(2) Beast

(2) Luke Cage

(2) Armor

(3) Cosmo

(4) Shuri

(5) Taskmaster

(5) Captain Marvel

(5) Vision

(6) Orka

To use this deck, copy it to your clipboard and paste it from the deck editing menu in Snap.

Pros:
Cons:
How to play it:
General Strategy: The deck is heavy on 2 cost cards to allow you to play Kitty every turn until you have a good place to drop Shuri on turn 4 or 5. Keep a lane open for mf Orka. Generally I'm snapping pretty late with this deck, a lot of times when Kitty is in your hand on turn 6 people just think they have a shot when you are about to drop a huge number. I'm also snapping on Stormed locations if I've got Vision/Captain Marvel especially with Shuri to win me that lane. This deck would be good with Storm but she's so prevalent in the current meta you can kind of just wait for others to play it. There is a lot. more variety to this deck than the old Shuri Red Skull Taskmaster meta. If you don't pull Kitty early or Shuri by turn 5 you can sometimes win with a well placed Orka but if someone is snapping I'm bailing.
Kitty: Ideally you are dropping Kitty first two turns, then Kitty -> Beast turn 3. If you have a 1 cost Kitty at end game, turn 5 Kitty -> Shuri then turn 6 2x Kitty -> Taskmaster to be dropped wherever you need is an amazing turn 6 40 power drop. If you don't have Kitty in play by turn 3 you can ignore except to ping Angela.
Nebula: If you start with Nebula and Kitty, drop Kitty turn 1 then both turn two, otherwise not a whole lot to note about Nebula. Just be smart with her, play her at undesirable locations, especially -1, -2, -3 locations. Be mindful to not block an Orka lane with her.
Angela: Pretty simple. Ping her with your 1 or 0 cost Kitty all day long. If room also play Vision here for an extra ping. If going into turn 3 you have been playing Kitty and you are deciding weather to pair with Angela and Beast, i tend to lean Beast as 0 cost Kitty is so huge and you can drop Angela next turn.
Beast: Pretty Simple, always use to get a 0 cost Kitty on turns 3 or 4, otherwise don't play unless in a Cosmo'd lane.
Luke Cage: If you sense HE play him, otherwise he's a 4th priority 2 cost card. However, if you can play him vs HE this deck crushes HE decks. Can potentially sub for Jeff/Storm but
Armor: Here to protect our Shuri pumped up outputs, mostly Captain Marvel. Not always essential as we often yield priority, then Shuri'd Kitty returns to the deck or Shuri'd Vision moves around before Shang Chi can get him. Can potentially sub for Jeff/Storm
Cosmo: Have to be careful you don't block your Shuri or Taskmaster. Other than teching opponents, use him to shelter our Shuri'd Vision/Kitty on turn 6.
Shuri: Super versatile to use turn 4, 5 or 6. With no Kitty, always use turn 4 to juice turn 5 Marvel/Vision. With Kitty I've found going Kitty -> Shuri turn 5 gives you lots of options turn 6. (Shuri -> Kitty -> TaskMaster; Shuri -> Marvel/Vision -> Kitty; Shuri -> 0 Kitty -> Orka)
Taskmaster: Pretty simple, duplicate your non Kitty Shuri turn 5 outputs on turn 6 and then drop Kitty - or - Shuri your Kitty then Taskmaster it turn 6. Allows you so much flexibility where you want to drop your power.
Captain Marvel: Unsung hero, has won me soooo many games by dropping her (Shuri'd or not) on turn 5 or 6 to take Spidey or Storm lanes. Try to protect her with Armor though, more easily targeted by Shang-Chi.
Vision: Another stud in the current Meta. Obviously you want to Shuri him on turn 5 but he is super helpful even without a 2x as he can sneak in those blocked lanes.
Orka: I swear to God no one expects an Orka from this deck. Keep a lane open for him and he will steal you that lane so many times. If you have a 0 cost Kitty from Beast you can drop an easy tactical 26 on turn 6.
Let me know what you think!

2023.06.08 23:25 pmandryk Reddit API Changes, Subreddit Blackout, and How It Affects You

Totally haven't stolen the text of this from anime...
TL;DR: We're raising awareness of reddit issues and want community feedback on /DeathLands potentially participating in the June 12th blackout. If you're unfamiliar with what's going on please read the rest of the post, otherwise weigh in on the issue in the comments. /DeathLands' moderators have not yet decided on our full involvement, but we are watching the situation closely.
So, what's happening? Last week, reddit announced significant upcoming changes to their API that will have a serious negative effect on many users. There is a planned protest across more than a thousand subreddits to black out and go private for 48 hours (at least) on June 12th.
An open letter to reddit In lieu of what's happening above, an open letter has been released by the broader moderation community. Part of this initiative includes a potential subreddit blackout (meaning a subreddit will be privatized and users will be unable to see any posts) on June 12th, lasting 48 hours or longer.

2023.06.08 23:24 lraabe PSA: If you have an “escaper”, you just have a case of the “catch me mama!” (and cute story)

TL;DR at bottom.
I have a “roadrunner” toddler and insufficient fencing along a country road where people speed. It terrifies me, but I noticed recently this is out of character with his normal willingness to please when we do behavior stuff.
I’ve grown up with animals my whole life, and when I took a moment to consider him with the same innocence of a baby goat (we’re so much tougher on humans…), it was obvious he is just playing.
Many mammals, especially, do this while young: experiment messing with their siblings or parents until they find a button to push. Push the button to initiate game of “ooh chase me!!”. It is how they learn the difference between danger and fun, and what is expected/ acceptable in the pack.
I experimented. We started playing chase in the backyard, and taking more long exploring walks around the neighborhood. He’s only 17m, so before this it never occurred to me his eagerness to explore might be much bigger than the world I had trusted to him before.
It seems to be improving, especially because in these new games, the communication differences between danger and fun become much more obvious. He stops faster at my “NOOO!” because I never make that sound in games the situation could be confused with.
My son is really clear at communicating what he wants to learn (to put himself to bed, to stop wearing diapers, etc), so I thought I’d share for those with less obvious cases. Your kid may just be asking for more data on how to tell between fun and dangerous, acceptable and too far. Play games and explore! It’s how they learn.
TL;DR— Many baby mammals enjoy the thrill of “chase me” games with siblings, parents, and packmates. Channel this fun in other games to satisfy the itch more safely.

2023.06.08 23:24 gamedevthrowaway360 Realistically, how accessible is the original FF7 for a modern gamer?

The new Final Fantasy VII Remake games seem appealing to me and I was planning on checking them out. However, I've seen people say that the remakes also act as sort of a sequel to the original FF7. I know fans of the game will for sure recommend playing it. I'm generally able to tolerate older games, but I've never tried one as large as FF7.
I guess I'm just sort of worried I might hit some roadblocks and get frustrated due to potential poorly-aged tedious difficulty? But I genuinely have no idea how the mechanics or progression of this game work, so I'd love to hear thoughts from people who are familiar with it!

2023.06.08 23:23 teemochowmein r/queensofgenshin will be joining the Reddit blackout from June 12th to 14th, to protest the planned API changes that will kill 3rd party apps.

Hi queensofgenshin girlies,
One of the less enjoyable mod posts today, but an important one, that we hope you'll take the time to read.
Recently, Reddit Inc, has announced changes to their API which, if enacted, will shut down many, if not all, 3rd party apps that a large number of Redditors use to access and enjoy their favorite communities - this one included.
One of the most critical changes to the API is that it is moving from a free to a paid model, resulting in expenses that developers of 3rd party apps simply cannot afford. To put the price change in to context, Apollo, one of the most popular 3rd party apps for Reddit, is looking at a cost of $1.7 million per month to continue operating. That's a cost of $12,000 per 50 million API requests. In contrast, Apollo pays Imgur $166 for every 50 million API calls.
This means popular apps like Apollo, Reddit Is Fun, Narwhal and many more will have to shut down, permanently.
Even if you're not using a 3rd party app yourself, these changes are likely to impact the communities you enjoy as well, with the vast majority of moderation teams relying on 3rd party or self-made tools, that utilize Reddit's API.
For us specifically, that means u/F1-bot, which does a whole lot of work behind the scenes to help mods manage the sub as well as deliver the content you've come to enjoy: Sidebar stats and schedules, standings, race threads with timings, starting grids, stats and results, the daily discussion, just to mention a few of the visible ones.
And on top of all that, it paints a bleak picture of what is to come for those of us who use other tools, like Reddit Enhancement Suite and old.reddit.com.
View this little TLDR on why this is important.
So what are we planning?
On June 12th, we and a growing number of other subs - large and small - will go dark for 48 hours. During that time, you will not be able to view or post any content on queensofgenshin.
This action isn't something we take lightly.
We understand that many of you enjoy coming here on a daily basis to keep up with the sport (and to trash talk the latest Ferrari strategy), but we believe that we must take a stand on this topic - and this is how we can do so.
We understand that Reddit is a company that has to make money in order to offer us a place to be the community that we are - but killing beloved 3rd party apps is not they way to do it.
We are not asking Reddit to provide a paid service for free - we are asking for reasonable pricing for apps that people have come to love and depend on to participate in their communities.
We can't tell you that the blackout will solve the problem, because we simply don't know. But we have to try.
What you can do to support this
While subs going dark is one thing, regular users can help as well.
Reach out to Reddit via the channels available to you: Modmail reddit, comment in relevant posts regarding the API changes, submit your comments via the contact forms.
Spread the word about the changes and the consequences where you can. Doesn't have to be on Reddit. The important thing is getting it attention.
Participate in the communities that highlight this issue: Save3rdPartyApps, apolloapp, redditisfun, getnarwhal/
And finally stay off Reddit completely from June 12th to 14th. The blackout is one thing, but users staying away from the site entirely will send an equally important message.
But don't forget: Don't be a jerk. As frustrating as this is, being toxic or aggressive is not the way to go. Remember the human on the other side of the screen.
Blurb copied from the formula1 announcement, but seriously, I hope this blackout is an effective way to show Reddit NOT to be greedy about this issue. Ever since this announcement, I've been getting A LOT more porn bots following my Reddit account, almost one every day. It's frankly irritating.
The Queens of Genshin Discord Server is going to be active throughout the blackout, so join it in order not to wonder why the queenies suddenly entered their ghosting era.

2023.06.08 23:23 Wattson5715 The SBMM for Pubs is getting worse every season that passes.

The SBMM for Pubs is getting worse every season that passes.
So, what I have noticed is that the SBMM for pubs is just getting worse every season that passes due to more and more kill grinders getting into lower level lobbies just to get kills.

The first part is that why does mixtape interfere with SBMM for pubs, because it makes sense that you're going to get more kills than your normal game in pubs, but for some reason I find that if you win at least one or two mixtapes then the lobbies for pubs are harder, which makes no sense. Additionally why isn't KD/R taken into consideration when match-making people because I've consistently come across people which have a higher KD/R which would average around 3kd, due to 3 stakes or two sweaty wraith and octane combos, and another piece of information which is vital to know in this situation is that it isn't like I'm queuing with people that have a similar or higher KD/R than me because I'm not queuing with anyone, I play mostly no-fill duos or trios.

Another thing is that I'm conducting research on these "pub stompers" and actually looking at the people they have in their lobbies and 90% of the players in these lobbies aren't past level 500 and have only ever reached 2k in one game, and their amount of kills on all the characters aren't a lot, which show how much skill that these players have.

I wonder if anyone else have noticed that the SBMM has just became worse, also I would like to know if anyone has experienced this.

Also to show the current stats. My screenshots don't work in game due to my resolution.

2023.06.08 23:23 Affectionate-Ad2081 The Case for Tim Duncan as the GOAT

I know what you're thinking: no way; there's no chance Tim Duncan is the GOAT. He's not even the best player of his generation you might say. You're thinking there's no way Tim Duncan belongs in the same category as MJ or LeBron. If you believe this, there are three things that you'll probably bring up as I make this argument.
  1. The Second Act: If you're the kind of person who rates players through spreadsheets, his career in the 2010s is statistically underwhelming.
  2. The Peak: You might say that Duncan never had a real peak where he was the most dominant player in the league on a daily basis, like Shaq.
  3. Greg Popovich: Duncan has always had Pop, arguably the greatest coach of all time in his corner.
I hear you, and I will address these later on in this post. First, let me address Duncan's stats and accolades.
Duncan's notable accolades from his NBA career are as follows:
Duncan's 5 championships are more than Larry Bird or Wilt Chamberlain, his 15 All-Defensive selections are the most of anybody ever, his 15 All Star appearances are tied for 3rd all time, he has as many regular season MVP's as Kobe and Shaq combined and only MJ has more Finals MVP's.
Don't forget about his college accomplishments though, because remember: Duncan came out of Wake Forest after four years despite people like Jerry West who said he could have been the number one overall pick had he left after his sophomore year.
Duncan's accolades form his collegiate years:
These NBA and collegiate snapshots of his basketball career, should be enough to have him at the table of the GOAT conversation. You're not convinced yet, let's dig into some more numbers.
Here's where Duncan ranks all-time on some of the major statistical categories across his NBA career:
These career totals, admittedly, are substantially less impressive than other players at his position, like Kevin Garnett (19th in points, 9th in rebounds, 18th in blocks, 18th in steals, 55th in assists), Karl Malone (3rd in points, 7th in rebounds, 70th in blocks, 12th in steals, 61st in assists) or Dirk Nowitzki (6th in points, 26th in rebounds, 53rd in blocks, 94th in steals, 155th in assists). And that's because you can't judge Tim Duncan's numbers like you can with most players. Imagine in 15 years if somebody said to you that Russell Westbrook was better than Steph Curry, citing how many PTS, AST, and REB Westbrook had. You'd laugh right? Because you know that numbers do not always tell the full story. It is impossible and irresponsible to discuss a player's ranking without mentioning the stats that exists, but by measuring players purely by their basketball reference page, you're leaving out context and the story in which those numbers were achieved. That context is what makes those numbers meaningful.
Such is the case with Tim Duncan, whose success and greatness transcends a box score. You can't judge Tim Duncan with numbers alone. The fact of the matter is, that if you ran a team and if you could pick from any NBA player that ever played the game, and your goal is to win, you would pick Tim Duncan.
Offensively, Duncan was dominant for his first ten years in the NBA. From '98 to '08, he averaged 21.6/11.8/3.1 while playing on one of the slowest teams in the league. In that span, the Spurs never ranked in the top half of the league for PACE. Adjusting his stats for PACE and looking at his stats per 100 possessions (31.2/17.1/4.5 with 3.5 BLK at 50.8 FG%), you're looking at a big man who was every bit as productive as any other offensive player in the league at the time.
You already know about his skillset. He was, after all, The Big Fundamental. He could pass out of double teams, face up and break down the defense with surprising agility, consistently knock down shots from the elbows, and torch any big man in the league with his array of moves in the post and suddenly imposing physicality. He could masterfully run a PnR with any guard with working limbs. And, of course, he had his signature bank shot, one of the most consistent and reliable shots of all time along with Kareem's Sky Hook and Dirk's fadeaway. Those skills never deteriorated throughout his career, except perhaps his last year.
This is where I want to attack the 2nd idea that his second act was unexceptional. His scoring numbers dipped in last 8 years, where he never averaged over 20 PPG. But, as the Spurs offense became more collaborative and free-flowing, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili shouldered more of that scoring burden as Duncan aged. Duncan's shot attempts fell, though he remained efficient. His skills hadn't waned; the Spurs just didn't need him to score 28 points every night. He retained his role as alpha dog during this stretch and contributed in other facets of the game. He could pick his spots, put his teammates in position to succeed, and save himself undue punishment and wear until is was needed. That's why in 2013, at the age of 36, he became the oldest player ever named to First Team All-NBA.
Duncan was never a prolific scorer, even in his prime. His game was never predicated on gawdy point totals like Malone or Dirk. With a different offense, he took fewer shots, and with fewer shots, he scored fewer points. In his last eight years, he remained a tremendous rebounder, was the go-to guy in crunch time, and the best defender, maybe ever. And this is what hurt his stats: the lack of flashy numbers for defense outside of blocks and steals. It's so hard to measure how much a drive was cut off because of his presence or a shot that was altered because of his contention. There are some metrics that attempt to measure this, like DRTG, Defensive Win Shares, and Defensive +/- , and while it is an inexact science, these measures do a fairly good job at assessing a player's impact on defense. Duncan's ranking in those metrics is unmatched:
"Duncan guarded centers and power forwards (sometimes even small forwards) with equal success. And as the NBA became more and more of a high pick-and-roll game, Duncan accepted the extra responsibility of getting involved at the perimeter, while never abandoning basket responsibility. Nobody was better than Duncan at being both an advance guard and the final fortress."
FiveThirtyEight published this article in 2016, where analyst Neil Paine calculated career WAR values that took into consideration defense and offense, and Tim Duncan led the WAR rankings, by a mile:
  1. Tim Duncan: 109.2
  2. KG: 96.2
  3. Karl Malone: 95.4
  4. David Robinson: 89.3
  5. Hakeem: 85.9
  6. LeBron: 82.8
  7. Kareem: 78
  8. Larry Bird: 74.2
  9. Shaq: 73
  10. Pippen: 72.7
What does all of this mean? It means that Duncan was a tremendous offensive player, despite the lack of volume, and one of if not the greatest defenders of all time. In short, his value as a two-way player is virtually unmatched in the last 50 years of NBA basketball.
Enough with the numbers. I want to talk about Duncan when it mattered the most: the playoffs. You can look at any numbers, read any article, or talk to any fan who paid attention to the game at the time, and you'll come to the same conclusion: Tim Duncan was a killer in the playoffs. All of his most memorable performances came in the postseason, and more often than not, came in crucial games when his team needed him most. From his near quadruple double in 2003 to close out the Nets and earn his 2nd championship to his 25 point first half against the Heat in Game 6 of the 2013 Finals ten years later, there was never a moment too big for Duncan. Here are his playoff numbers, significantly higher in almost every category than he his in the regular season:
His '99 championship run was phenomenal, where he tore through a young Kevin Garnett, the newly assembled Kobe-Shaq Lakers, Rasheed Wallace's Trailblazers, and the Patrick Ewing-less 8-seed Knicks on his way to being named the second youngest Finals MVP ever. His 2002 campaign was incredibly underrated, as he carried one of the worst teams of his career to 60 wins and outplayed Shaq before being beat by the two-time champs. His 2003 season was his best season, and we'll get to that in a second. Just know that his running mate, David Robinson, averaged 8.5 PTS and 8 REB in the regular season and that Duncan's 5.9 win shares in that playoff run remain the most of anybody in a single postseason.
In the mid-to-late 2000s, Duncan's Spurs remained a fixture in the playoffs against competition like Dirk's Mavs, Nash's Suns, and Kobe's Lakers. He repaid them with two more titles in '05 and '07. He also gave us one of the clutch shots of his career in Game 1 against the Suns in 2008 with this 3 point game-tying three pointer in OT.
Like I said earlier, in Game 6 of the 2013 Finals, at age 36, playing against Wade, Bosh, and apex LeBron on the road, Duncan put up 25 points in the first half. It would have gone down as an all-time series clinching performance had it not been for Ray Allen's iconic game-tying 3-pointer. Looking for revenge in the 2014 Finals, Duncan set the tone in Game 1 with the classic 21/10 game, while shooting 9/10 from the field. As his final playoff hurrah in 2015, trying to defend the title at the ripe age of 38 in Game 7 of a first round series against the Clippers, Duncan reached all the way back and put up 27/11, sinking crucial free throws to tie it, before Chris Paul hit a clutch, game-winning shot near the buzzer.
The same Tim Duncan giving the business to a 22-year-old Kevin Garnett, was the same Tim Duncan taking a 26-year-old DeAndre Jordan to school. Duncan was ready to win championships from the day he entered the league to the day he left. And I think that is why his peak is used against him as an argument for GOAT status. The fact that his championship window lasted his entire 19-year NBA career and that his teams were always somewhere between 50 and 60 wins meant that it's hard for any one of his seasons to stand out from the rest. And for some unfathomable reason, being consistently great is less of an accomplishment than being great for short stints.
Like I said, his 2003 season was his best, after leading his team to 60 wins and his 2nd consecutive MVP, Duncan eviscerated everything in his path as he tore through the playoffs. He upended the Suns, ended the Lakers 3-year reign as champions, and outdueled Dirk before absolutely torching the Nets in the finals. By the time he was holding the trophy, it was clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that Duncan was the league's best, most complete player.
Now, I'd be lying if I said that Duncan's peak was higher than Shaq's. But I also wouldn't feel comfortable saying that the difference between the two is great enough for me to lose sleep over. To me, the truth is that Shaq was so much more of a spectacle. To watch peak Shaq was an experience unlike anything else. To see someone of his size and stature move so powerfully and fluidly is still something of a miracle. To see Duncan at the peak of his powers was a lot like seeing him seven or eight years later. He was just a little faster, a bit stronger, and a touch quicker in his prime. But do aesthetics denote superiority? I'd say, no. And though Shaq in his prime was certainly a more dominant offensive player, there was never a time where he could match Duncan's abilities as a defender, leader, or teammate. The two are the antithesis of each other. Shaq loves fame; Duncan loathes it. Shaq would sometimes show up to training camp out of shape, often battle with his co-stars and finished his career having played for six different teams. Duncan took great care of his body, cemented himself as the cornerstone of his franchise, and is one of the most celebrated teammates in NBA history. Shaq left a little on the table. You can never say the same thing about Duncan. Shaq cared a little too much about what everyone thought of him, while Duncan couldn't have cared less.
Let's tackle the third criticism: that he always had Pop. To me, Pop is the greatest coach of all time, but he would be the first one to tell you that he wouldn't be here without Tim Duncan.
For one, Duncan can play any style of basketball, in any era. You want to go slow school, old-pace, dump it off to the big man down low, let him bang and be solid on defense? Titles. Remove the hand-checking and illegal defenses, increase scoring and start moving toward the perimeter? Titles. The league goes small ball, the pace explodes and shooting and ball movement is more important than anything? The largest margin of victory in NBA finals history.
Secondly, he can play with any team. Honestly, has any superstar done more with less? Jordan had Pippen his entire run and Rodman for the last half. Bird had McHale and Parish. Wilt had West and Hal Grier. Russell had Cousy, Jones, and Havlicek. Magic had Kareem and vice-versa. Kobe had Shaq and vice-versa. And LeBron has had Wade, Kyrie, and AD. Duncan's best teammates? Old David Robinson, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili, who combined for 5 Third Team All NBA appearances and 4 Second Team appearances during their time with Duncan. Parker and Ginobili are long shots for the HOF, and even though Robinson's in the HOF, he wasn't playing at a HOF level alongside Duncan.
Third, and most importantly, Duncan forged the culture of the Spurs. Pop was essential in acquiring players and reinforcing the culture that Tim wanted, but Duncan was truly the most vital component. The NBA is a star-driven league and finding a great player who hasn't gotten a coach fired is like finding a good Star Wars movie: they're few and far between. Not only did Duncan not get Pop fired, he let Pop coach him harder than any superstar ever. If Tim had ever thought to himself, "you know what I don't feel like getting my chops roasted in front of the whole team today because I didn't box out well in practice" he could have gone right to RC Buford, and Pop would have been gone - end of story. But Tim understood what Pop was about, and trusted him enough to be mentored in an unprecedented way. He set the example for his teammates, that no one is immune to criticism and that it's expected of everyone to leave their egos at the door.
In 2017, the Spurs SB Nation blog, Pounding the Rock, spoke to Sam Walker, author of "The Captain Class," a book which examines winning culture in team sports, from field hockey to rugby. In an exchange, Walker said this:
"[T]he book's main conclusion is that the only one factor that must be present in order to maintain greatness over a long period of time is the presence of a particular kind of selfless, relentless, independent-minded, publicity-averse, emotionally composed captain with strong communication skills. And that's Tim Duncan. Duncan was a pure example of the species."
I love Pop, but I have to believe that Duncan was the catalyst that powered Pop to be what he is now. This isn't Belichick-Brady where you wonder who made who. Pop is the greatest coach of all time, because of Tim Duncan. If you want to take credit away from Duncan by saying he played for the best teams, you might be right, but only because he made them the best team. He gave up touches, let other guys hold the torch, put everyone around him in the best position to succeed, and he enjoyed it when they did.
When I said earlier that the thing that hurt Duncan's stats more than anything was a lack of defensive numbers, I lied. The thing that hurt Duncan's stats more than anything was the fact that he never gave a shit about stats or awards. Ever. He wanted his teams to succeed and he wanted to win. That's it. Just read about how his teammates talk about him:
"The best PF ever! Thanks for the memories old man. A great player and teammate."
- Lamarcus Aldridge
"Sometimes all you NEED to say is THANK YOU....To the BEST EXAMPLE of a Leader, Brother, Friend."
- Bruce Brown
"Even tho I knew it was coming, I'm still moved by the news. What a HUGE honor to have played with [Duncan] for 14 seasons!
- Manu Ginobili
I don't think there is a more beloved teammate than Tim Duncan. In the words of NBA commissioner Adam Silver, "...his understated selflessness made him the ultimate teammate." Duncan was always the big brother. Correcting his teammates when they made mistakes and throwing his arms around their shoulders when things didn't go their way. He led in the most effective way possible, not with tweeting, bombastic words, or showy halftime speeches, but by example.
Of all the end-of-career farewell wishes, the one from his former teammate, Brent "Bones" Barry stuck out to me the most. He quoted Mark Twain, saying "'To be good is noble, but to show others how to be good is nobler and no trouble'; for your brilliance TD, I am grateful. For your skills as a player I am in awe. And for your friendship I am honored."
Milwaukee Bucks coach and former Spurs Assistant, Mike Budenholzer said to ESPN's Kevin Arnovitz in 2016: "The magnitude of that, the number of people in this league who have enjoyed opportunity or found fortunate spots in the league, you can trace it back to this one guy -- to the way Timmy played ball and the way he conducted himself. The 'culture' is Timmy."
The NBA is a league of superstars and dynasties - from Russell to Jordan, from Wilt to LeBron. We'll remember its history through its champions, and in the history of North American sports, no team has been as good for as long as the Spurs. San Antonio's success is completely unprecedented in the world of basketball. Aside from his lockout shortened sophomore season, Duncan won 50 or more games and qualified for the playoffs in every season of his NBA career. He finished his career with a win percentage of 71%, the highest of anyone, in any sport, ever. The Spurs run of success started in 1997, the year they drafted Duncan. Since then, he was the cornerstone, the engine of the franchise that has perpetually defined what winning culture looks like - in and outside of basketball.
And so I say again, if you could pick any NBA player from any era of basketball and your goal was to win, you would pick Tim Duncan. His abilities as a basketball player are what made him a superstar. But his consistency, willingness to be coached, love and support of his teammates, and humility are the things that make him transcendent.
I'll let Pop have the last word. This is what he said to the press after Duncan announced his retirement:
"Everybody always talks about who they'd like to eat dinner with, if you had one night and you could go to dinner or lunch with someone. Some people say Mother Teresa, Jesus, the Dalai Lama...I could honestly tell you, my dinner would be with Timmy. He is the most real, consistent, true person I've ever met in my life."

2023.06.08 23:21 MistressAthena69 How is this possible....

I'm literally sitting on a 34-30% win rate despite being the top 3 on my team 95% of the time, and if I'm not, top 5 by a large margin...
I don't understand if I'm playing with bots, or humans.. The amount of time I see my team defending the point BEHIND it.. not even going into it to defend.. or if we're supposed to assault, they all just sit back and don't do crap...
90% of the time I'm the only one literally waltzing into the cap by myself, and trying to cap it, while the rest of them are just doing utterly nothing... SO before people say "well sitting back and farming points doesn't help your team win", I'm usually one of the few who are assaulting the point, or actually putting bodies on the point to hold it.
It's like the concept of defending a point by not letting the enemy get to it, has become the 200 IQ move in todays generation of idiots.

I fail to believe I'm playing with breathing human beings with a functioning brain at this point. The amount of absolutely absurdly stupid things I've seen in terms of not pushing a cap that literally has 0 enemies in it and it being an absolute steam roll on my team 75% of the time.
------------------
Then we get to the point that some of these people are literally like level 40 in the campaign, yet they haven't had the IQ of brain cells to figure out how to build spawn points, defenses, or anything other than sitting behind the cap and doing literally nothing, while a level 10 campaign person who's only played for about 11 hours is literally soloing every cap and point the entire game...

2023.06.08 23:21 isaw4sign Slow during card upgrade( Xbox Series X )

Good news about the patch and the new game. Didn't realize it was happening until after it happened and I checked this subreddit. But they fixed one thing and now I'm screwed with another. The game is running unbelievable slow.
Trying to manage my cards is now unbearable. There's like a huge lag on the upgrade screen and when walking. This never happened before today this badly. I noticed that it wasn't as responsive as when I first started the game and I thought maybe it was because I had so many auto saves and such. I deleted all of them except for a couple thinking that was the problem but it didn't help. Now after today's update its worse. I put over 600 game days on this game(that's how much I enjoyed playing it) but this is really souring me and I might have to put it down for awhile. I'm on the Xbox X and was even contemplating getting it for PC. Yeah I'm addicted.
This happened to anyone and is there a fix. If this was a computer I could probably clear a cache or try to figure something out but the XBOX is a closed system and not sure what to do.

2023.06.08 23:21 AmharaFano_ This Oromos Regime of Ethiopia is epitome of hell for Amharas - this oromumma agenda will fail miserably. And will suffer the consequences like never before !

I’m extremely disgusted on how a lot of people in this sub gaslight & downplay Amharas suffering from this very much oromo regime and don’t let Amharas express their feelings it’s only right they do it’s the truth no integrity no shame don’t care who you support you do not downplay ppl sufferings & their expressions. We’ve suffered terribly from the last 2 previous regimes hoping for the best in abiy but he lets down Amharas again & again with false hope no better than the others but all Amharas do not support him no more except payroll Banda’s. Nobody suffered worse from tplf & derg regime than Amharas now the past 5 -6 years of this oromo gangster regime it’s the same-thing. Tell me how Amharas are not targeted & Amharas is just going through what everyone is, can’t be because no one has even went through 5% comparable damage like Amharas.
  1. Who is the perpetrators of the mass genocide in oromia which been going through since the 80s but since abiy got in power the violence skyrocketed which massacres like 3000 Amharas in 1 day & half in Tole kebele Wollega is a normal occurrence and be blocked of to any gateway to leave the region and just be surrounded & wiped out again to any survivors from evidence getting outside so as complete destruction of Amharas. This is continuously taking place in wollega & throughout oromia since Ola blames Opdo Abiy gov and likewise with abiy opdo it’s very much a game to them they’re in cahoots and to not take responsibility they just blame eachother but one thing for certain is it’s oromos committing genocide. Very much over 15,000 + thousand Amharas massacred gruesomely since abiy time in power
  2. How abiy protect & let influx of oromo terrorist in the region, they’ve burned down & shell with nonstop bullets in the city of ataye & other towns in north shewa over 10 times in ataye alone in our very own region. Oromos try to deflect and not take all responsibility and say fano did it like what ? and try to have justification so they lie & say oromos in wello are targeted which is a downright lie you would not exist in the region no more you would’ve also seen a massive idp case but their very much protect by adp government + abiy, Amharas cannot even avenge themselves on the terrorist hosting in oromo zone in Amhara they protected by the orommuma gov. so that’s far from the case but game of theirs to not have responsibility.
  3. Demolition of 110,000 houses surrounding of Addis which overwhelming majority are Amharas (90%)+ and rest gurages other minorities & making them idp. Since his power made over 11 million Amharas displaced & homeless in Ethiopia.
  4. Abiy war in Amhara targeted our only support/trust system fano/asf which saved and covered endf when they got stabbed in the back & was saved by fano multiple occasions. He has said he will disarm every regional special forces and add them in endf or state police in Ethiopia but no signs of disarmament of any other regions or starting of it except from Amharas, the ones who did disarmed and listen to abiy have been sidelined & not gotten a job in security so it’s really abiy not wanting Amharas having a defence system ? Ola has not been disarmed even though they commit genocide they haven’t suffered any consequences of any large scale attack from the government even abiy himself blames them in most of the atrocities done in Ethiopia still nothing done, there very much in cahoots and work for the same orommuma agenda, Kill together lie together.
I can go on & on but I didn’t want to be to long with my post. Amharas are to be furious if this was anybody else hell breaks lose 4 years ago. Since we have been very patient a lot of Amharas held back cause they believed abiy blaming game not taking responsibility & still hoped he change up the politics in Ethiopia and trust his false operations on terrorist but that’s over the rest of Amharas have completely rejected psychopathic abiy & his gov completely. We’re good fearing & very articulate on our next move is also a couple of reason why Amharas didn’t started fighting back then till recently. It’s to late for this orommuma gov once Amhara start fighting they finish it they going down top to bottom. You really know how fed up Amharas are to make them turn against Endf (hijacked btw) even feel something against the Ethiopia population.
Ps. English not my first language

2023.06.08 23:21 camsteh To the new, frustrated players, a reminder: Some of us old folks have been playing these games for decades

I don't say this to discourage anyone, more to remind you that you shouldn't be hard on yourself for losing in this game. Regardless of skill level, lots of people playing this game are in their 30's or 40's and have either played fighting games casually, or have been putting in thousands of hours for DECADES. There are so many pieces of fundamental fighting game knowledge that you should never beat yourself up for not knowing how something works or not having the best execution yet.
On the flip side, you should find solace in the fact that you can be better than people who have been playing fighting games since the 90s by doing your homework, learning the fundamentals and practicing both against people and in training mode. Even just learning to anti-air and not jump constantly, you can improve your game in DAYS. Just because some people have the advantage of time, you can leap above them by training intelligently using the resources available. If you REALLY want to get good, do not get discouraged, accept that it will take some actual work, and don't give up.
I have played thousands of hours of fighting games and I can still hop into a casual match and go 0-20 against someone who's better than me, the important thing is finding peace of mind and learning from it, rather than let it ruin you.

2023.06.08 23:20 ZUZARIX Kartrider is super fun but literally UI vomit. (Maybe imitation Mario kart)

I love playing this game.
I thought I was so goated. Maybe god like at the game. But after a week I was giving some notification that not only have all my online games been bots. But also the courses have been set to easy? Literally was so angry lol
But the main problem is this game could benefit from some simplicity. They devs vomited on the interface and there’s data every where random slides random pages. It’s clearly a ps version of Mario kart which I’m forever thankful but holy moly. Mate clean up the game. I still can’t even figure how much lucci I have lol. Can’t even upgrade my kart.
Super fun game though once you’re in a race. The three star licences are super hard though which I like but I wish it would give you distinction for the hard work. Or maybe it does. Haven’t gotten that far.
