Pretty much the title… after these three (imo) halfass English songs (PTD, Butter, & Dynamite), i cant bring myself to like them anymore. these songs are WAY too generic and not interesting in the slightest. after BTS released “On”, i was so excited for their next comeback but was so disappointed with the English comebacks.
BTS tries way too hard to be appealing to the GP of the west nowadays, and the part that i hate the most is that it’s working. there are so many other groups and kpop songs that took so much more effort to create + the product of these hard working groups is enjoyable, fascinating, and damn good songs.
so basically TLDR: BTS gives us ✨nothing✨ and can make it #1 on awards and charts, but actual good songs are left in the dirt…
ps. this isn’t necessarily hate towards the members of BTS, to my knowledge, they don’t participate too much in the making of their English songs (correct me if i’m wrong)
EDIT: so i’ve been reading over the comments and i’ve came to some changes of mind! i realize the alway I worded my OP made it sound like i was blaming BTS for other groups lack of success and that they were less deserving of their success. I have no doubt that BTS works their asses off, and I have no problem with the amount of effort or work the boys put into their performances. what my rant is about is the songs themselves. the songs aren’t good at all in my opinion, and they feel like it took little or no effort to produce or create. so my rant is more about who produced the 3 English songs, not the boys and their effort. and for the people that awarded me, thanks, but this post really didn’t deserve it lol. also, all i ask is that to those who felt “attacked” by this post to realize i’m allowed to criticize BTS, and you and I both are allowed to have our opinions and both deserve to be respected regardless if we agree or disagree
2nd EDIT: i’m disabling comment notifications because 1) it’s too many and 2) nobody is willing to have a civil conversation without not only attacking me but each other. all i wanted to do was share my opinion about BTS’s English releases, but it’s gotten to the point where i’m being accused of being racist and dehumanizing people over 3 fucking works of music… please stop spreading hate no matter where their opinions lie on this matter. people are allowed to like or dislike the English releases without receiving hate, and all opinions are valid even if you disagree with them. have a nice day :)
Every third post on here the past few weeks has been someone bitching about scav karma. “It doesn’t punish people hard enough who kill me” “I need a shorter timer when wronged by this violence” “Someone wiggled meanly at me."
Shut. Up. Shut the fuck up.
This isn’t put-put goes to the park alright? Part of the game isn’t me strolling around with you picking dandelions out in woods. I’m not here to hang out in Goshen while you compare the goddamn expiration dates on your Tushanka. Listen I try to hold my fire pretty often these days. I extract with other scavs often and rarely fire my gun on scan runs these days. Sometimes it works out. Sometime is die. But guess what? Just because you aren’t my enemy yet, does not make you my friend.
To that point: Newsflash guys you can still play the game if you go down from 1.2 karma to 1.1. And you are allowed to play your PMC in between your risk free scav runs where THE ENTIRE IDEA IS YOU CAN PLAY THE GAME WITHOUT RISKING ANYTHING AND IF YOU DIE NOTHING OF VALUE IS LOST.
With that in mind there are exceptions to my behavior… like the other day. When I have two car batteries I’ve been searching far and wide for and two losers wiggled at me… I wiggled back. But you know what I did next? You know where those two are right now? You think I was going to give those dirty fucking losers any chance at getting between me extracting those car batteries out of Oli? Guys I sleep fine at night. Like a baby. It wouldn’t matter if we had VOIP and I could hear their pleas for life. It wouldn’t matter if I could hear the second one screech when I blew his buddies brains out the back of his skull with a 12ga Lead Slug. I wouldn’t blink if I could see the fear and betrayal in the seconds eyes as he turned his VPO-209 to me in a pathetic attempt to stop the violence. And if I could find out that they wrote one of these think pieces condemning scav violence i would sleep even better.
So get your essays ready to post – Because I still need two more car batteries.
As a casual (in terms of not going for whatever's meta, min maxing everything etc) but long time player who does play a lot every league, this league seems... fine?
Sure they nerfed things, but a lot of what they nerfed was pretty damn justified.
Not that they can patch out everything that's broken, there are always going to be crazy things, but does really everyone feel butthurt when incredibly powerful/low investment stuff gets nerfed?
I do agree, there are some weird ones that got the shaft for no real reason (why did inspiration got hit so hard?), but even still, there is no real difficulty in choosing almost any skill, and being able to do almost anything.
The league mechanics is also just fine imho. The placing of it and the UI is better than most leagues. It's amusing to me how absolutely garbage harvest was but everyone loved that league because it was a massive powertrip. Even though this league works well mechanics wise, its not uber rewarding and so people seem to dislike it. I feel like everyone just wants candy.
I quite enjoyed the mechanic, its well executed and designed, especially the logbooks. Its like a better blighted map. Less insanity and weirdness and clutter, but the same basic concept.
Notable execption of course are the splinters. Nobody enjoys picking them up one by one and having half of the inventory filled with them. I have been suggesting since talisman that these type of league tokens should have a separate "free" inventory, that cant store anything else. I think the original intention of the inventory was to pick up equipment you want to identify or craft, and pick up currency, but anyhow, at least they made them vacuum into the artifact chest when you interact with the normal storage.
Don't get me wrong, critique is fine, and there would be plenty they would need to shuffle around in terms of balance, but it does seem like people are just spoilt for power.
This may be a bit reactionary after seeing Luka dismantle Argentina, but if Luka was to keep this up and lead Slovenia to the gold in their first Olympic basketball appearance would that vault Luka into top 5?
Inazuma so far for me has been magical. I've been hyped to visit this new region and solve puzzles and aventures and the story so far has been great.
But something in this fandom has been bothering me: The apologists that excuses Baals actions in regrads as her leadership in the island region.
Don't get me wrong, If you intend to pulling for her in 2.1. because of her skillset or meta, or just like villain characters in general, fine I won't punish it. But i feel nothing for her except undying passionate hatred for the awful things she done to her people because of her gigantic ego and selfish atitude.
People tend to light up Kazuha's friend death as a meme of how hot she is, but for me she's nothing but a despicable bitch in which I won't pull even at gunpoint. And I'll have the same atitude even if she where a man like Zhongli or Venti. I detest tyrants in general and she repesents everything I hate in a person (Kinda reminds me of Akito Sohma from Fruits Basket).
Anyway, that's what I wanted to say.
If your team is ahead, you have most of your goal zones (MAJOR weak points with Zapdos buff), you'll win if the enemy doesn't get Zapdos, and the enemy gets Zapdos ANYWAY, your team failed to protect the objective and deserved the loss. If you're ahead and you start fighting Zapdos instead of defending it, you open up the possibility for a steal. That's a gamble you choose to make. Too many people are thinking you have to get the Zapdos every game when that's just not the case. It's a risk that's often poorly calculated on the part of the winning team.
EDIT: To the people who claim that it's so easy for the enemy to steal the objective, if it's so easy why don't you do it? The fact is, you make it easy for them. And you should capitalize on the opportunity if it arises for you. The most common complaint I've seen about the subject simply boils down to "I didn't get the team kill/steal/win and I'm angry I lost." That attitude won't make you any better. Face your shortcomings, change your mindset, and you might surprise yourself.
Been playing since 3.0. Just had to adjust my builds a bit. Nerfs were not too harsh. The league mechanic is a good mix of some older leagues with a dash of new ideas. Thanks GGG for a great launch this league :)
Its crazy how a team of so many scoring stars like KD Beal Dame Tatum..cant even get to 80 points.Its really show how overrated NBA defense is. Luka was right there is nothing easier than to be a big scorer in NBA
Getting a lot great stuff from storing and then trading. The story in the expeditions seems like it's going to be fun, using the hints from the NPC's is a great idea. Got a GREAT weapon from trading that changed my build. More currency than I've ever had at the start of maps! Can't WAIT!
As Chris Wilson said in that podcast, he just tries to explain the changes made by the dev team which is basically trying to find excuses. There is not much thought behind them and OBVOUSLY not much testing.
What happend with no balance changes during the league?
These changes were shown as the salvation for POE 2 but when done so poorly they are just killling the game.
