Props to blizz for figuring out that zerg is out of control in LoTV. Now how about you fucking try worker parity and rebalance the game properly? Like, it's so fucking stupid. Z gets 5 workers for your 3 with no effort and built in static. Like, there's nothing correct here with Z lategame being what it is. You've gated protoss stargate so they can't even play a control-based strategy anymore and, again, z has built in static which leads into, what, long games against hive tech? Z is unkillable, has attacking options aplenty, and the best lategame and 5 workers for your 3. It's zergcraft. Get your heads out of your asses, revert the ghost nerfs, go to worker parity with no macro mechanics and rebalance the game. It's easy. Oh, and T has the best ranged units so it should win in the lategame. Ultras are a joke, vipers are a joke, ravagers are a joke and the lurker is the most broken shit ever but Z already so good none of your balancers even use it. Congrats. I'm still not buying it and I expect that alot of people won't either as the pros all go do other things except for those on proteams with salaries to play this shit halfassed imitation of BW.

Like, you fucking make roaches which threatens burrow. Ravagers and lurkers are right there so you pick one and then you go to lategame basically for free cuz the only thing better than a great attacking unit is a great attacking unit played defensively. Get hive. Make hive units and win game. Seriously, how long have you been planning the shit for and you give us, the RTS community, this aborted travesty? It's worse than infestorcraft and far more boring.

PoE: 2.0 (The awakening)

This is a bitch post made by me (a fucking bitch) whining about what they've done to my dude, a life melee char.

In 1.1 my dude was good. I played an IR/RT build, stacking basically all of the life available. It worked because of the mechanics of how the blender build worked. The idea was to use a large life pool + leech (20% of maximum life) + LGoH + block + resists + endurance charges to straight tank basically anything in the game. Two notables made the build: The armor mastery stone (Increased armor + Crit mitigation) and Elemental adaptation (+2 max resists). It was probably uber viable with near perfect gear and decent play.

In 1.2 the major changes to the build were that EA was removed, Crit mitigation was segregated, most of the +max was functionally removed (could still get +1 fire woohoo) and to cyclone. The cyclone nerf was enormous to the entent that you could no longer play as I did in 1.1, in a facetanking style in that the hits/second were crippled, meaning less LGoH, which along with the mitigation nerfs meant that your dude straight couldn't do Crema or Palace aggressively. I went to a leech build in response.

I played the leech/acro/IC build in 1.3 and was underwhelmed. My char died alot and it would be to stupid things like killing myself to reflect or not hitting a resist pot before a corpse explosion. My progress stalled and I hated playing the game, bearing the memory of what I'd had before and so I chilled and waiting for the awakening alias patch 2.0.

2.0 is shit. They're straight taken leech out of the game (2% of maximum life/target at default) and the tree is not only not better from the duelist start but considerably worse. Like, with perfect play my 1.3 build worked in principle but the actual execution of playing to a consistently high standard was tiresome. Now, like, say I have a Gale Bane, a legacy taker, and everything else. Well, that's endgame viable but you have to go and get VP way up and to the right of the start and just, like, go IR, wear atziri's step, and like, maybe still skip crema or palace. It's just ridiculous. Like, it's nothing new to nerf a build or two but they took what I had in 1.3 which wasn't even that good and straight taken it out of the game. It's like the devs are trying to take every strong build out of the game and reduce the population to like those level 85-reroll faggots using their faggot build of the patch as they post on reddit about how good they are at the fucking game. Like, I've played endgame, I've spent game resources on a map pool and getting merely very good gear (arguably godly gear from most perspectives) and now, what, I'm supposed to just fucking farm game resources on lowish maps and like it? Farmers. What GGG wants so far as I can tell is to reduce the entire playing population to a bunch of game currency hunting farming faggots.

And it's bullshit. Rather than rearrange things or add things to the tree GGG, like blizzard, has simply taken all of those things that are arbitarily good and just removed them from the game. Even Fyndel's build got crippled to nothingness, it's less then half as good as it was before and sure, it can still do all the content, but GGG seems to regard the endgame build, the target build, that fucking brass ring up on the ceiling a player strives for, hopes for, grinds for and to reduce it to shit and spit on the player and say, no, you aren't allowed to have nice things and do endgame content and push and strive for a better char because we're going to go into your stash and change the leech values on your gear and change a mechanic that's been around for years just because.

Spanked. The devs have left me feeling spanked and all I did was what was available on the tree and as far as I know I'm the only blender to do atziri, at least in the thread and I just wish I'd farmed harder, been smarter with my exalts and bought that Gale Bane when it was 110exa and just fucking did Uber so I could leave the game at peace with myself over the time spent as I cannot do now for I cannot say that I did the whole game.

Fuck act four, it's shit, a fucking joke. Run along this path doubling back a few times after you beat easy as shit bosses with primitive mechanics. Oh joy. Everything in the act is in straight lines and the malachai fight is an abomination. Ooh, kill that thing to hit this thing. Do you have maxed resists and enough life? Probably not if you're a new player. Welcome to POE where you progress and then get stomped into the ground by the devs but, hey, you can farm for that unique jewel and maybe work up to a soul taker. Yeah.

Don't feel safe doing crema or palace or even orchard maybe. If that's endgame in the view of the devs and the appropriate way for me to be playing the game, a top 500 something standard player with alot of time logged and having put my currency into items, well, then I choose to end the game.

Oh, and if you think this is something ax Gelig Mortenson (sp) the fuck he thinks. Only melee in the world to do the entire game with top of the world gear and he probably can't find a way to do normal atziri now. LOL.

GG.

The nice thing about poker is that everybody sucks. Like, Phil Jackson wrote in the book with the white cover that, well, his words were to the effect of that the game was so hard that if you were doing the correct thing more than half of the time you were doing well. He also spoke of trying to not match the intensity of the opponent but to well, sort of run OODA loops like the fighter jets do or limit unforced errors/control the tempo/don't rush me sort of shit. Meaning fast but unhurried. Aggressive, but under control. Know where your dudes are and what they're doing and make snap decisions. Like, the bulls teams, they didn't really talk on defense. Like, if you're talking and thinking, that shit, that conscious shit, it just fucks up your shit. Tom cruise as Mav said, "You think and you're dead." Well, it's true. Thinking in counter strike sucks. Thinking in basketball sucks. Thinking in poker sucks. Sure, you do it when you have time and everyone good thinks on both their own and their opponent's time, like Jordan going into his rolodex of moves and going, yeah, this while probably his whole team just knows he's gonna do that shit and maybe his opponent as well, and, well Jordan had a way of doing it so well that it would just work anyways. Plus, if you take too long with a bluff the value of it goes down. Speed is good.

Sort of how it is in poker. Like, you can know a nigga is bluffing not the absolute bottom of his range but def his not calls and some could calls and also value betting the appropriate ...

Yeah. Huge unmapped strategy space esp. with regards to bet sizing. Huge variability in players ...

Writing is idiotic why do I even do this shit it's just known.

The reason why when you see these winrates posts with like 2 guys known to be over 3bb/100 with everyone else clustered between 0 and 1 is because those 2 guys are, well, for the sake of this 30 bets better every 1k hands. That's nothing. If you can't find a way to manufacture the coups necessary to do that, to be merely 30 bets better over 1k hands then, well, I would say that you lack fucking imagination and fighting spirit cuz my problem, probably forever, is that I'm always looking to jack a pot off a mook and it's not about finding good spots to bluff in theory but more saying, no, no no nononononononononoonnnono over and over and then saying yes not every time that it's there, but when it's just yes.

But the way that you get there is to say yes way the fuck too often to the point where it's drilled into your skull and then, well, maybe here and you make a probably not bluff and get feedback and the general premise of information gathering play vis a vis practice is to just take chances and see what happens. Back when people would just quietly muck their hands you would need to guess what they'd called with but in online poker you just open the IHH and it's right there and with enough information gathering, of playing across the line, it's the only way to play not on the line but dancing all over it and constantly being on the verge of pushing too hard, of playing too open, of attacking too frequently.

Like, this cat, he r/c'd in position with 54s. Board came down acceptably for him for this hand, he had bot ups. I fired off 3x giving nothing away with timings. He called off comfortably. I didn't get it until I noted that I was listening to Pusha T while 3betting 1/5th of hands or close and that I was also too fucking cool, that I hadn't demonstrated to his mind enough recognition, enough respect for his flop call while on turn. Either that or he was just a big fucking fish. Probably both. Anyhoo.

I'm rebuilding this part of my game and I'm getting better with every hand with every piece of feedback I recieve and if there's anything that I know how to do it's how to beat a "good" player. The only problem is that, like, a good 1/2 NLHE player today is like, better than a 10/20 player used to be and so I need to like, get back to not the player that I was back when I was playing 5/10 (blinds) but heavily exceed that while carrying a diagnosis and managing something that's alot bigger than poker skill as I carry worlds of novels within me which don't sleep along with quieter darker deeper urges that threaten to unravel me.

It's alot to do and I find that I have not nearly enough hours and with my bodyclock being just wherever it is on any given days it leads to times like this when I'm spent as a player but I have somewhere that I need to be tomorrow and if I slept I'd probably sleep through the alarm and so here I am at Oh Dark Thirty -- Not zero you fucking ape Oh -- writing this shit that I'm satisfied people read given the feedback I've received but at what point do I just become that guy who writes shit that more closely resembles a crazy man screaming out his latent fury at the world in fantastically long sentences. That's a good thing for me to ask myself as I write yet another non-declarative sentence. Waste of space.

Maybe I'm just a fucking waste of space and I'll never get this together and I'll end up like homey only I won't be lying about having written 21 books because maybe I'll become just another rakeback pro clearing like 25-60 rax because maybe the shit is just that mapped out between these guys but, still, probably not and the only reason why cats aren't clearing 10bb/100 anymore is straight suckage, that they lack that thing that would make them cash out and go and do something else with their time, maybe DFS, maybe getting a house selling certificate or move cars or bet horses or run pyramid schemes or get a fucking job or whatever the fuck.

Iunno. Hopefully I can get up there and just fucking feel them and see what's there. I probably won't feel much but neither will they and if I do it right they'll feel just nothing from me as I laugh to the bank with this.

Ha ha haha. Laughin to the bank with this.
HA ha ahhahaa yeah.

it's a 50 ref you fucking
