You managed to avoid your fascist... congratulations!

We've got a robot controlled by a fascist newspaper editor given power by a readership of ignorant fools, and the most powerful faction of a fractured opposition is gathered behind a dithering naif. The checks and balances that give hope that Trump will end and be prevented from his worst excesses don't really exist. No-one in the UK is going to blab intelligence secrets to adversary powers, but they'll divide the country and cut themselves off from their neighbours well before Trump lays the first brick in his wall.

Ok, cheers. I've never really looked at that counter except to see if my pet has picked up a pile.

So we have to take 2 months out of the already impossibly short Brexit negotiations for a pointless snap election. Despite Labour looking slightly more coherent in the last week or so, there is basically no opposition and Brexit seems to have divided the country to almost Trumpian levels.

I keep up with the headlines, but I find I don't really care. I live in a Tory safe seat, so this FPP system means my vote counts for nothing (I try to tell myself that I'm lending weight to the argument for proportional representation), and in the nearly 10 years I've been here I've never felt more like a foreigner than after the Brexit referendum - I realised that I just don't understand the politics of this country.

What does "50 million gold streak" mean?

Yes, it was a good session in the morning. My rebirthed barbarian managed to pick up a few good items from Matt's kills, then I rejoined the game with my WD and Matt and I did a full bounty run with Tim.

In the evening I improved my WD's best rift to GR62 and failed in my first attempt at 63, but it was a horrible map. By then I'd had enough shards for my barb to have gambled 5/6 of the Wastes set, so I used a RoRG in the cube and added two IK pieces and my only ancient weapon (Warmonger 2h sword) and whirled my way to GR52, all with only 2 leg gems neither of which was Taeguk. Right at the end of the session I rolled a socket in my last ring, got Taeguk to 25 and found a half decent IK weapon for the build, so GR55 should be right round the corner.

Is the sprinter conquest all five acts in an hour (12 min per act seems impossible...), or is it every act in 1 hour each (which is easy)?

I'll probably do the same conquests as you, gems should be easy and I think 6xGR55s should doable. I rebirthed a barbarian today and powered to level 50 with lots of bonus xp gear, I'll start gambling shards with her once I get to 70. I have the same problem as you, my comp loads levels really slowly, also slows down significantly with too many other players, so boss mode might be too hard.

Cheers Matt. It would be good to team up if we can. I've done it all solo so far and there are still areas of obvious improvement that will get me further, but I foresee issues with some of the requirements, e.g. T13 speed rift and the second conquest (which I haven't thought about yet).

Whew! Finally mastered Zunimassa's dungeon and made champion of the season. What a ball ache that was...

Three things to do for destroyer and five for conqueror, and some of them won't be easy.

I ran GR50s to gain about 25 paragons to 498 and also level legendary gems, then did a tier 59 to get the gem to 50 and augmented my weapon. None of my other ancients are long-term keepers so I'm a bit reluctant to augment them but might have to to progress. But first I'll probably go back to a lower tier for a while and hope to gamble better items.

I had no deaths on the GR59 this time, so could probably do a 61 or 62 with a good map.

The trailer looks good, but I misremembered and thought it was going to be TV show not a movie... not sure what they can do with the story in a movie? Anyway I've only read the first book and instead of the plot or characters what has stayed in my mind was a series of evocative images, so not sure what to expect or whether I'll see it. When Elba and McConnahey were announced as the cast I immediately thought they would be perfect and the trailer seems to confirm that.

Haven't seen this and not particularly interested in doing so, but I found this interesting:

Gelatineous Sires are the most desired I'd say, hope everyone can get there and help you.  I wonder if you can get a pack of 10-15 gellys ..

They are my favourite, not just for the drops but because it's so manic trying to control the fight so you kill them all, e.g. if you're concentrating on one of the little dudes sending the odd shot over to the other child gobs to interrupt their portals. Also they have a unique sound so you know they're there before you see them. In fact, while I don't really like gobs from a lore perspective, I do like them for gameplay, it's just so fun to drop everything and charge the goblin - if there are other bosses around that's when you find out how good you are!

Is there a way to boost the number of goblins, e.g. particular areas to go to (I assume you don't do normal or greater rifts), or are you literally just running around hoping?

I got a couple of menagerists in quick succession recently and I wondered if they still spawn once you've collected all the pets (I don't know how many of those there are, though).

Well after that I tried tier 58 again and passed without any deaths... the difference between a nice map and monster spawn and a bad one. Then I had to do some bounties for crafting materials and happened to pass the 2500 achievement.
