Don't those guys have phones?

If they didn't expect armageddon-level Internet backlash, they weren't paying attention.

I don't see how politics and gaming mix at all, but obviously some people feel very strongly about whatever the hell's going on over there.  Fine, ban him if he pissed you off, if he's saying things you don't like or agree with.  I really don't care.  But taking away the prize money he'd won is going too far.  They can cite the fine print all they want; it's still a fucked-up thing to do.  I have no idea how they would not realize what a horrible PR problem this would cause.

So people are (supposedly) uninstalling Blizzard games and swearing to never buy another Blizzard product.  Cool.  Vote with your wallet.  That's the American Way.  The only game I play is D3 and I've already paid for it, and Battle.net is still free, so every minute I play D3, I'm getting more for free.  If people bail, maybe that'll mean less lag for me.

Diablo 3 / Re: Season 18: The Season of the Triune

I don't think I've ever figured out how Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac works with channeled skills.  My WhirlyBarb was using it, but it's obviously not taking one second off the cooldowns every time he hits things.  The IcyVeins guide said to use Wrath of the Berserker, and I figured Obsidian Ring is always a good choice when you have skills with a long cooldown.  Except that it didn't seem to be working.  For now, I've cubed a Messershmidt's Reaver (takes off one second per kill, which adds up pretty quickly, though obviously not per hit) and that seems to make more of a difference.

So... how does Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac work with channeled skills?

I'm doing a similar thing.  Had a Seasonal Wizard on Americas, then a Monk on Europe, then did a Barb on Asia.  By time he'd run around with the Raekor's set for a while, he'd gotten most of the basic WhirlyWastes gear together, and gambled the rest.  So now he's Whirling around and destroying everything.  Got the swords (one Ancient), ring, and the Flavor of Time amulet, too.  Fun times.

The new circles are kinda fun.  Since I play mostly ranged characters, I tend to put an Occulus Ring on my Templar when I can, and now there are three new circles to play with, too.

I've seen all good people turn their heads each day, so satisfied.  I'm on my way.

Diablo 3 / Oh, now I get it!

On my way in to kill Diablo for a Bounty for the hundredth time or so, I glance down and I've got about 30 seconds of buff left and I'm hoping I'll still have some left by time I actually get to him.  It's so stupid, that whole "journey into darkness" they do to build up the excitement and tension.  Like that whole trip around the edge before you get to Cydaea's lair, or that extra passageway to get to Malthael.  It doesn't build tension; it's just annoying because it burns off whatever buffs you've still got going.  It's almost like...

... almost like they did it that way on purpose!


Desk: Apply directly to the forehead.


How did I not figure this out, not even think about it, before?

Pretty nice.  I would wear such a shirt.  I don't know if I'd buy one, but I would wear one.

Ran some Torment XVI Rifts last night, and a few more this morning.  I like it.

I'm assuming most of us have characters that blow through T13 Rifts and literally only do it for the GR tokens, so having higher Torment levels available is fine with me.  I noticed that yellow dudes can drop four Death's Breaths now instead of three, drop rates are higher, etc.  All good.  Might as get more goodies and/or crafting materials.

Haven't tried Bounties yet at higher Torments.  Spent most of my time integrating my Seasonal stuff.

Thinking of maybe sitting out this Season, now that there's actually a few things I can do in non-Seasonal to push my characters.

Yeah, I heard that Fury figures rather prominently, since it's set in the past and thus before "the Avengers initiative" and all that.  Didn't know about Coulson, but I like him, too, so that's cool.

Mrs. Orbert and I have seen all the MCU movies, mostly in the order released, but the timing for Captain Marvel was just bad.  I was kinda bummed to not have caught it in the theaters because I knew it would be too early to be out on video yet, but we decided that with like 300 characters, maybe missing one of the origin movies wouldn't be a huge deal.

Hopefully without spoiling things too much, I'll say that Endgame was good, and while it may have been helpful to have Captain Marvel's backstory, I don't feel like we missed a whole lot.

We found out that there are still theaters showing Captain Marvel, but whatever; we went for the big one anyway and will catch Captain Marvel on video.

We got one at our theater on Sunday.  I'm not sure how that all works, whether it depends on the studio, theater, both, neither...  ?

It was the same one I'd seen online.  I don't know if there are currently only one or more than one.

I think the title is kinda wacky.  This is the last one, right?  Or at least the last one to follow the Skywalker family?  So why the "Rise" of Skywalker?
