    I cannot recommend Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo enough, especially if you're a musician.

    This season of GOT

    If you've liked the show, I sooooooooooooo recommend reading the books. Season 1 is almost perfectly in line with the 1st book, you see some small differences in season 2 vs the 2nd book and then shap just completely deviates. The show doesn't give us the inner monologues the characters have with themselves, so the character development in the books is pretty amazing.

    This season of GOT

    Yeah, I'll give you Dorne being a complete suckfest. Prince Doran is holding that storyline together by a thread. I had a lot of fun reading about Areo Hotah and Dorne in general in the books, not so much the show.

    This season of GOT

    Damn, am I the only one who has enjoyed this season? Hardhome was easily one of my favorite GoT eps of all time. There's no way I'm the only one that has wanted to see what's going on there after reading Cotter Pyke's letter. I've read all of the books, so at this point I'm basically just seeing two completely different stories unfold. My primary complaint is how flobing weak the Unsullied are in the show. They're supposed to have short swords for close combat, what the flob?!?!

    Yig (vs Drake)

    I don't mind the pulls/dmg output so much, but damn those are some fat ass heals. Doesn't matter who is playing Yig, the hero commands respect on the field by anyone semi-competent.

    The nuclear option is absolutely neccesary

    Well, the main point I was making is that Boros would have been WAYYY less of a threat had your team not been steamrolled early on. John's godlike was the direct result of a substantial amount of mistakes on your team's part early in the game. EDIT: To go a bit further, if he wasn't fed and farmed by the time you landed your pull at minute 26, it would've been an easy kill and may have led to a T2 tower push. Instead, you guys got destroyed.

    Hey man, thanks for posting this. In hockey, this kind of game is called "not playing a full three periods." For the first 19 mintues, John's team absolutely, unequivocally ran train on you guys. To be quite honest, you yourself played a pretty OK game and your Unix was trying his best to keep you guys in it. But that first 19 minutes completely flobed you guys over for a few reasons: You gave a player like John a lot of free farm when he shouldn't be getting any. Rancor had a DISASTROUS early game. I didn't recognize his name, but goddamn. He auto-attacked creeps almost the entire laning phase, barely denied and made a series of horrible decisions when trying to juke John at top. In addition, he was using the bare minimum stun time because he always Q'd from max range. A huge part of playing Rancor is positioning yourself so you can land the good stuns. I'm sorry for shapting on you here Vad, just trying to be objective. Bottom was left out to dry early on, causing one of your only AA dps heroes to fall behind at a critical time. A well played Jakk can exert full map control like Grunty or Rancor, but nothing even remotely close to that happened in this game. It's fine to solo the long lane, but you need to give him support if he's getting ganked like that. By the time you guys had your shap together, it was way too late to snowball. You actually had a real nice pull on John around minute 26, but it didn't really matter because he was faaaaat. From this point on, because of the mistakes in early game, you guys had to be PERFECT in mid-late game. You had some good plays, but it wasn't enough. Hell, you guys practically wiped them at minute 39 and couldn't even push down the T3. Last but not least, I think your Grunty tried to give himself a little too much survivability and sacrificed dps. This would have been fine if you had another AA dps to pick up the slack, but your Jakk was miles behind. I'll say this: a well played Boros is really strong, no question, but when you let him run around the map like that it just exacerbates the problem.

    Oh wow, I honestly had no idea IPB was $30/month. That's ludicrous for forums, my god. I think I remember paying $5 a month for forums when I ran my WoW guild ha. Hell, even $25 CS server packages gave you a free 10-slot Vent server and free hosting. Anyway, sounds like everything is under control. Cheers, gents.

    This is why I'll never take balance feedback seriously without corresponding replays. There are simply too many instances of someone getting rekt and then immediately assuming it's because the enemy hero is OP. There are a million variables in every game. If you flob up too often, any good player will make you pay. Post a replay, then we can talk about your concerns after we evaluate the rest of the game.

    Haha that's precisely what I meant. Well if it turns out that's ultimately a barrier ekco doesn't want to cross, I'd gladly shell out some extra money to keep the forums in their current state for another year at least.

    I have to ask, and forgive me if it's a bad question, but is there any kind of legal issue with using a database we were once paying for? Or were we strictly paying for hosting and we're free to do whatever we please with the database itself? I'm just going to assume the latter.
