2023.06.07 02:12 Ingeniosity Chamber got buffed, but is it enough?

Following the release of Patch 6.11 today, some questions about Chamber have arisen, fueled by the Valorant community. I have also taken interest as a Chamber main since his release, so here are my thoughts on the buffs and how CHamber can be improved.
They're decent. Not game-changing, not worthless.
The trip buff (+10m radius, -2s arm time) should allow for slightly more flexibility for Chamber to play around and away from it, but without the trip being global, Chambers will live in constant fear of being flanked after they've rotated and their trip is offline. Personally, I think that either removing the range restriction, reducing the cooldown on recall or even giving him two traps will significantly improve the agent in general and allow him to truly fulfil being a Sentinel.
In my opinion, the tp buff (0.7s weapon equip time > 0.0s) is nothing special. Yes, it will prevent Chamber from being run down after teleporting, but keep in mind the tp range is still small and distance can be covered quickly to eliminate him. It does open opportunities for Chamber players to use the teleport aggresively, but there's still a fairly large gap between teleporting and being able to shoot a gun (~1.3 seconds). I think boosting the range of the anchor or allowing it to be put on a cooldown after destruction is a solid way of systematically allow Chambers to be more flexible in a round.
As for the ult buff, it's alright. Just a 15% firing rate boost. It still technically has a slower fire rate as a normal Operator when scoped (Normal Operator is 0.75/sec, Tour de Force is 0.7/sec) which is pretty absurd. To put this into context, to get back to pre-nerf speeds, the Tour de Force would need its speed to be multiplied by 1.7. As an 8-orb ultimate with only 5 bullets, I would think the ult would need either a slow-field buff, 8>7 ult orbs needed or a fire rate to something like 1/sec. Its too little power for too high of a cost. Both Neon and Jett's ults are also weapon based, yet they cost only 7 ult orbs. Sure, you could argue they require more mechanical skill, but they both refresh on a kill, and Chamber's sluggish, overpriced sniper doesn't...
Overall, Chamber's in an okay position. He still requires some work, but with some more subtle buffs, I think he could overtake the Killjoy meta and find a good position in pickrates. Only time will tell...

Bloons TD 6 - Update Notes! Version 37.0

Bloons TD 6 v37.0 - Update Notes!

Available now for all platforms / *iOS, Android, Steam, Apple Arcade, Amazon please restart your storefront or be patient if it does not appear for you, these updates can take some time to be rolled out to every region due to how the storefronts are set up.
Check out the more awesomer update video here.

Key New Features

  • New Paragon - The Magus Perfectus! (loves casting spells) Some of you know we teased this last year, but we needed more time to balance the art and design required to make this extra special, so we are very pleased to get this live! Wizard Monkey’s Paragon is designed to be a higher level strategic Paragon with powerful ability usage similar to the Doomship.
    • The core of the Magus is a toggle to and from a Draining Beam which deals very small single target damage but absorbs graveyard mana as it damages and destroys Bloons
    • While toggled off from the Drain Beam, Magus attacks with a powerful Arcane Spike that deals massive damage to MOABs and revives Bloons it slays, while a Dark Phoenix circles overhead attacking with Firebomb breath and a radial fireball attack
    • Phoenix Explosion Ability: can be cast to consume the Paragon’s entire graveyard to set all Bloons on screen on fire for 30 seconds and summon one Zombie ZOMG for every 9000 graveyard mana consumed
    • Arcane Metamorphosis Ability: can be used to consume all graveyard mana and transform the Magus briefly into an alternate form which decimates everything with a flame cascade attack; Metamorphosis lasts longer the more mana it consumes
    • Magus was designed for armchair play so it will fill and consume graveyard mana on its own, but our goal was to create more actively controlled Paragon for those who will enjoy microing between Beam on and off and choosing which awesome Ability to unleash and when

New Awesome

  • Happy Birthday BTD6 - On June 14th, BTD6 will celebrate 5 years of monkeytastic fun and strategy! We hope you’ll join us for the main menu changes, skinned Collection event, special Questing, and general celebration. Thank you for five amazing years and we’re looking forward to all the years ahead!
  • New Hero Skin - Jiangshi Sauda, a fun new cross-cultural look for Sauda brainstormed by the art team, mixing inspirations from a favorite show and Chinese folklore
  • New Map - Erosion
    • Community designed advanced map Erosion by “I am not an artist” ~ u/TheWiseTroll
    • TheWiseTroll’s original concept proposed land and water but when thinking about map colors and the little stories we think of behind each map, the concept of the polar bear walking back with the shrinking ice was too compelling to do anything else
  • New Quests
    • Birthday Party - Pop the Party Bloon as many times as you can before it escapes
    • Blade Sauda Nowhere - Try out Sauda and learn some of her skills
    • Patch’s Cheap Chimps Challenge - Beat Logs with as little cash spent as you can
    • Striken Bad - Defeat the BAD on round 100 using First Strike. The spelling hurts us, too, you’re not the only one - but we had to do it!
  • Least Cash and Least Tier Boss Events
    • We’ve heard feedback about and have been wanting to shake up Boss rules, so here we go!
    • Applying new victory conditions to Boss Events completely changes the focus while still needing the damage output and type to handle each Boss
    • Time still matters, as the secondary time score will break any ties
  • New Trophy Store Items
    • Heroes: Geraldo Pack Mule pet, Quincy Spec Ops Drop In placement
    • Monkeys: Sweden Village Flag

  • 5 Year Anniversary Avatar, 5 Year Anniversary Banner
  • New CT Team Store items
    • Base Props: Treasure Chest
    • Icons: Overclock icon, Archmage Staff icon
    • Frames: Bloon From The Dead frame, Mage Hat frame
  • New Slider
    • Everybody loves sliders, right?
    • After lots of discussion on the team and a fair few player requests, we’ve added a ‘Projectile and Effects Scaling’ accessibility option to main menu Settings
    • This is primarily for accessibility to minimize the size and brightness of projectiles and effects, especially when the screen is crowded with Monkeys and Bloons
    • This is not directly a performance improvement feature, so please do not expect the game to run noticeably better - just noticeably cleaner
    • We tried not to remove key game state indicators but this is ultimately in player control - if you adjust the slider and effects and projectiles make it harder to play the game, please reset the slider until the game is working the way you want
    • It’s also really fun for silly screengrabs, so please post your favorites!

News - Anniversary Giveaways!
We would also like to formally announce that we will be doing a week of giveaways on our Twitter starting next Monday NZT to celebrate the BTD6 5 year anniversary! 5 winners will be picked randomly each day for 5 days to win an awesome prize from our merch store.

Balance Changes

Boomerang Monkey
This part has to be included along with the Lych Soul rework with Paragons which is finally making it in this update after necessary delays. As Boomerang Paragon’s knockback hits so many times so quickly, we need to make it more reasonable when applied to targets that aren’t immediately destroyed.
  • Boomerang Paragon knockback amount reduced 3 > 1
Bomb Shooter
MOAB Assassin fills a useful role of a pure long cooldown ‘single target assassination’ in the game, but when compared to something like First Strike it feels a little lacking that it is unable to carry damage through MOAB Layers
  • x4x MOAB Assassin ability passes through MOAB layers
  • x4x MOAB Assassin ability explosion centers around the impact target
Tack Shooter
Blade Shooter has always struggled to find much value without MK or as a step to Maelstrom, so to give it build value on its own we feel like this should be a part of the base value on the upgrade.
  • x3x Blade Shooter pierce increased from 6 > 8
Ice Monkey
Lowest tiers of ice monkey are far too effective for their cost against ceramics, with this scaling well all the way to round 100, we feel like ice duration against ceramics needs to be reduced to counter this but for now this reduction will only apply until T3.
  • 000 Ice Monkey freeze duration reduced by 50% on ceramics
  • All T3 Ice Monkeys increase freeze duration on ceramics from 50 > 100%
  • 203 Icicles crosspath now gains camo prio
Glue Gunner
The Bloon Solver’s rework has been very popular, however, we’d like to have a better lead up into the new mechanics by introducing this earlier at the tier 4 now.
  • 4xx Bloon Dissolver now creates puddles on track leading up to Bloon Solver, puddles deal 1 damage, all other stats and crosspath benefits are the same.
Sniper Monkey
This will allow Cripple MOAB to take out regular MOAB layers in one shot until round 100; for such a slow attacking single target tower we feel this will help top path flex, even if mostly for show.
  • 5xx Cripple MOAB damage increased from 80 > 280
Monkey Buccaneer
Reworking Grape Shot crosspathing as it gains far too much crosspath value by T2 but then is lacking in purpose at higher tiers, double shot will only work as one extra grape however Destroyer will now apply its full attack rate buff to the grapes and Flagship will equip aspects of Grape Shot on the mini planes.
  • 210 Grape Shot total projectiles reduced from 10 -> 6
  • 310 Destroyer also reduced from 10 > 6 grapes
  • 310 Destroyer now increases grape attack rate twice as much, matching increase to the regular attack
  • 410 Aircraft Carrier planes radial attack now fires an arc of grapes instead of darts
  • 410 Aircraft Carrier planes radial Emission Angle 360 > 90
  • 410 Aircraft Carrier planes radial projectile count 8 > 6
  • 410 Aircraft Carrier plane grape projectile speed 100 > 200
  • 420 Aircraft Carrier planes radial projectile art: dart > hot grape
  • 420 Aircraft Carrier planes radial damage type Sharp > Fire
  • 400 Aircraft Carrier plane radials damage 1 > 2
  • 4xx Aircraft Carrier missiles now follow tower target priority
Monkey Ace
Spectre is shifting a little of the ceramic bonus around into basic all damage at the cost of reduced pierce, which should make up for lack of single target damage while also making the pierce crosspath more necessary when being used for cleanup focus.
  • xx4 Spectre Dart damage increased 3 > 4
  • xx4 Spectre Dart ceramic bonus reduced 2 > 1
  • xx4 Spectre Dart pierce reduced 15 > 10
  • xx4 Spectre Bomb damage increased 2 > 3
  • xx4 Spectre Bomb ceramic bonus reduced 4 > 3
  • xx4 Spectre Bomb pierce reduced 30 > 20
Heli Pilot
Even with the map-range advantage, rotors are weak compared to any other constant AoE circle like this. Chinook feels like it’s near a place we are happy with now, however we want another tiny nudge on cost while keeping cash generation value the same. Pushing some higher values on the last Comanche Commander changes as the missile attack is effectively such a small portion of the tower’s total damage late game.
  • 302 Razor Rotors will now benefit from the faster firing crosspath
  • 3xx Razor Rotors cooldown rate 0.75 > 0.5
  • x4x Support Chinook price reduced from $10500 > 9500
  • x4x Support Chinook supply crate cash generated reduced $1650 > 1,550
  • x4x Support Chinook max uses per round reduced from 3 > 2
  • xx4 & xx5 Comanche mini's follow the target priority set on their main Heli
  • xx5 Comanche Commander missile damage 7 > 15
  • xx5 Comanche Commander missile moab bonus 5 > 8
  • xx5 Comanche Commander mini's missile dmg 5 > 15
  • xx5 Comanche Commander mini's missile moab bonus 5 > 8
Mortar Monkey
As the Rapid Reload crosspath has actually fallen behind in value compared to Burny Stuff for top path Mortars we want to try a slight stun duration increase as this buffs the base path with a larger benefit to Rapid Reload mortars as a stalling option. Mortar consistency is lacking at x3x making it tough to spend on even though x4x is fairly good, so some of the T4 rate is shifting down to help out with this. As the camo property has grown quite weak and currently Signal Flare is considered the best decamo tool, we want to push back slightly on its cost and by reducing the blast radius of the decamo area while emphasizing crosspathing for effectiveness there.
  • 4xx The Big One stun duration non-MOABs increased from 0.5s > 0.75
  • 5xx The Biggest One stun duration MOAB increased from 0.3s > 0.5
  • 5xx The Biggest One stun duration BFB increased from 0.2s > 0.3
  • 5xx The Biggest One stun duration DDT increased from 0.2s > 0.3
  • x3x Heavy Shells attack delay reduced from 1.08 > 0.81
  • x4x Artillery Battery attack rate buff reduced from ¼ to ⅓ (remains the same rate: 0.27)
  • xx3 Signal flare cost increased $700 > 800
  • xx4 Shattering Shells price reduced from $11,000 > 10900
  • xx3 Signal Flare decamo radius reduced from 50 > 43
  • 103 Signal Flare decamo pierce increased by 5 > 10
  • xx4 Shattering Shells burn DoT deals moab bonus +5
Super Monkey
As Engineer sentries do this already, newly spawned Mini Avatars from temples will now by default match the target priority of the temple.
  • 4xx Sun Temple's Magic Sacrifice mini Sun Avatars when placed will spawn with the same target prio as their parent tower
Ninja Monkey
We’re changing the Ninja Monkey Paragon’s focus as a fighter against camo, as we feel like a greater strength and tactical value against camo will be the full reveal of all camos rather than all camo removal.
  • Ascended Shadow now grants global camo detection for all your towers
  • Ascended Shadow no longer strips camo from Bloons with every attack
  • Ascended Shadow main attack gains bonus to camo +6
  • Ascended Shadow Flash Bomb Explosion gains bonus to camo +20
  • Ascended Shadow Flash Bomb Shurikens gains bonus to camo +16
  • Ascended Shadow Sticky Bomb Projectile gains bonus to camo +3200
  • Ascended Shadow Sticky Bomb Explosion gains bonus to camo +700
  • Ascended Shadow now deals 25% damage to all non-Boss MOABs that spawn
Alchemist Transforming Tonic is in a weird spot with the transformation unable to attack through walls when the base alchemist is able to. Also with this, including a QoL fix for the T5 that currently prevents transformed towers from functioning with target priority.
  • x4x Transforming Tonic transformed alchemist can now ignore line of sight
  • x5x Total Transformation towers transformed by the x5x will keep their Target Priority
While the tornado doesn't do anything to MOABs, it still spends itself on them which wastes a relatively long cooldown, so addressing this flaw. Avatar of wrath doubles the base attack speed before any scaling is applied, but this hasn’t ever applied to the 205 Lightning, so taking care of that as well. Housekeeping - even deep in the forest, it does actually make life better.
  • 3xx Druid of the Storm’s Tornado no longer targets MOAB-class Bloons
  • x3x Druid of the Jungle no longer pops Lead Bloons without 130 crosspath
  • x3x Jungle Vine follows target prio of tower instead of strong
  • x3x Jungle Vine defaults tower to strong priority when purchased
  • 205 Avatar of Wrath base Heart of Thunder attack rate increased 2.3s > 1.15
Spike Factory
We’ve heard the feedback, so Spiked Mines get a tweak to get more mines exploding but with less pierce on each, to overall increase quality of life in more frequent use but less wasted pierce. This will help out with some of the problems it has scaling into late game super ceramics.
  • 4xx Spiked Mines pierce increased from 12 > 20
  • 4xx Spiked Mines explosion pierce reduced from 40 > 30
  • 4xx Spiked Mines DoT damage increased from 1 > 10
  • 5xx Super Mines explosion pierce remains at 60
  • 5xx Super Mines DoT damage increased from 1000 > 2500
Monkey Village
A minor QoL for cheap Monkeyopolis creation, we included a small base amount of cash production to the generation formula.
  • xx5 Monkeyopolis income formula now includes a base +$2500 minimum
The 005 crosspath fix in the last update left XXXL Trap slower than previously even if crosspathed to 205, so we are increasing that base 005 slightly to match up the 205 crosspath again so that it isn’t any slower than before.
  • xx5 XXXL Trap attack cooldown reduced from 5.8s > 4.6
Beast Handler
As our newest tower to be added to BTD6, we went over feedback for every path and made a large number of adjustments addressing a variety of points.
  • 3xx Great White thrash rate benefits from speed buffs
  • 3xx Great White damage increased 4 > 8
  • 3xx Great White max extra damage from merge increased 8 > 16
  • 3xx Great White max attack rate buff from merge increased 0.20634 > 0.38
  • 3xx Great White extra thrash knockback duration from merge increased 0.1 > 0.2
  • 4xx Orca thrash damage increased 20 > 30
  • 4xx Orca thrash max extra damage from merge increased 40 > 60
  • 4xx Orca max attack rate buff from merge increased 0.37829 > 0.38
  • 4xx Orca thrash radius increased 20 > 24
  • 5xx Megalodon price reduced from 55,000 > 45,000
  • 5xx Megalodon thrash radius increased 30 > 36
  • 5xx & x5x Beast handler paths are now overclockable
  • x4x and x5x Max Merge Bonus: Overkill damage on MOABs now distributes to the children of that target
  • xx1 Gyrfalcon path deals +1 damage to Regrows to stop accidental infinite regrow farms
  • xx3 Golden Eagle pierce increased 12 > 15
  • xx3 Golden Eagle pierce range increased 24 > 30
  • xx3 Golden Eagle ceramic pierce penalty reduced from +3 > 1
  • xx3 Golden Eagle Max Merge Bonus: Now grabs MOABs with pierce penalty +14
Removing the stacking aspect of Gwendolin’s burn damage over time, but increasing the damage as she levels up so that it actually scales up in power now.
  • Lv6 Gwendonlin main attack DoT stack count 0 > 1
  • Lv6 Gwendonlin main attack DoT damage increased from 1 > 2
  • Lv9 Gwendonlin main attack DoT damage increased from 1 > 4
  • Lv10 Gwendonlin main attack DoT damage now increases by 1 per additional level
While they are complicated individuals, Adora can now fully appreciate the sacrifice of the newest Monkeys in the struggle against the Bloons.
  • Lv7 Blood Sacrifice can now be used on Beast Handlers
Admiral Brickell
We aren’t happy with strats that start looking like exploits with frequent sell-replace loops.
  • Upon Selling Brickell - all of her placed Mines are now expired along with her as well
Psi’s stalling out of the end of round is an odd mix of useful / annoying / out of control, so we are for now capping this to a 3 seconds of overtime stalling. Psi’s Psychic Blast ability also has weirdly low pierce for a long cooldown ability with no damage, we are increasing the base pierce greatly but it no longer increases in pierce at Lv7 since the extra pulse brings more pierce anyway.
  • If no Bloons are left unpopped on screen aside from ones Psi is currently holding & destroying, these Bloons will be destroyed after a maximum of 3 seconds
  • Lv3 Psychic Blast pierce increased from 50 > 200
  • Lv7 Psychic Blast pierce increased from 100 > 200
Event / Boss / Relic / Knowledge
  • All Lych Soul variations can now be stunned/slowed by paragon tier upgrades
Looking Forward
Five months of 2023 done and dusted, which feels to us like it has zoomed by, perhaps because the Auckland office where the BTD6 team is based has only just reopened after the severe flooding at the end of January. All of Update 36 and the majority of Update 37 were completed while again working from home, but we’re very excited to have the office repairs done, the flood wall almost finished, and the ability to work shoulder to shoulder again on fun new things for the monkeyverse! Here’s the latest gaze into the crystal ball:
  • Update 38 Key Content
    • New Boss - Phayze: another all new Boss concept and play style, not giving any other hints apart from the name itself
    • Summer fun: a new Brickell hero skin and a waterpark map aimed toward Intermediate to help keep northern hemisphere summer cool
    • Quests: continuing to build new quest system features and adding a few new Quests to the list
  • Update 39 Key Content
    • Map Editor: under construction since last year with internal systems testing happening during 38.0 development, we are super excited to put map creation tools in player hands on as many platforms as possible when it goes live
    • New Hero - Spirit Walker: another unique design that we’re sandboxing already to make sure it has as much balance and art iteration as possible, again no hints other than the name
  • Update 40 Key Content
    • New Paragon - Monkey Sub: we’ve tagged sub as the next Paragon, so tell the Navarch to stop hoarding all of the Portable Lakes!
    • Stretch Goals - Boss Rush Team Event and CT Themes: lots of unknowns 3 updates out but we have strong plans for a new Team event and new parameters for Contested Territory that will make each CT more dynamic - anything that we don’t get done by end of year will have strong groundwork for next year
  • Console
    • Getting closer to submission on Xbox and PlayStation but this has been slow going. We’ve added another programmer and are working even more closely with platform partners to get through our last issues and launch as soon as possible, but that’s likely at least another 2 months. Switch is still a consideration depending on response to Xbox and PlayStation, as it will require additional bespoke development.

2023.06.07 02:09 Long-Intention152 Advice on Screwing Up

Hello. I posted on here a while ago for a similar predicament.
I tend to shoot myself in the foot a lot. What I mean by that is any time I am given the opportunity to succeed, I mess up.
I work in a field where great opportunities are few and far between where I live. Time and time again I screw up with emails, such as typos or putting the wrong name when addressing someone. Keep in mind, I try to triple check emails/projects for this. Also, someone tells me one thing when that isn’t the truth, then I’m the one who suffers and costs myself time and money because of these errors, leaving a person, or sometimes multiple people, upset with me. Grant it, I am new to this field but many of my peers strive with little to no instruction. I am someone who needs specifics, especially with direction, in order to strive.
This affects my social life, making me less confident in relationships, whether romantic or platonic, and makes people think I don’t like them because I am too shut in. It is at the point where I can’t be with people who are my friends and family for more than an hour because I get annoyed/bored. This is something that I recognize is my fault, but I am too busy worrying about what is going on with my job. Keep in mind, this is a job I am actually interested in and not a job I have to keep me in the wage cage.
I also tend to word things weirdly, whether it be when I talk or in writing. This may also affect the way people see me. I think people believe I am dumber than I actually am. At the very least, people know I am inexperienced but aren’t willing to train or be specific about what I need to do, which I understand why they feel that way because, once again, costing time and money.
In other cases, I think people think I don’t care enough. I tend to not respond to text or emails the second I get them, but usually get back within 5 minutes to an hour max. This, in turn, makes me look like I don’t care to people who do respond the second they get them.
As I kind of hinted at before, people will suggest ideas I know are dumb, but because I don’t have confidence in myself, I think that I what you are supposed to do. In turn, I get punished for it. This also leads to burned bridges. People talk in my field, which leads to less recommendations.
I don’t like upsetting people and I am not confrontational. What can I do better to succeed? How can I be healthier in social settings due to this? My job does require I am timely, but how timely is too timely, and vice versa?

2023.06.07 02:07 QuintusCinq Simcity Buildit Mayor's Pass Season 31 - Fabulous Florida (Florida Summer Vibes) - Tiers, rewards and points per tier / Additional info on War Vu-pass and the planning of future seasons and design events

The following list gives an overview for the 31st mayor's pass season Fabulous Florida - Florida Summer Vibes, of Simcity Buildit, which runs for 6 weeks, starting on Wednesday 7th of June 2023. The mayor's pass has 42 tiers for the free and premium passes. The premium-plus pass, which was introduced during season 21, has 52 tiers.
A premium pass or a premium-plus pass can be bought at any moment during the season. When the season ends, the option to buy is closed at the same moment.
When buying a premium pass, the player has to choose between the 'basic" premium pass and the premium-plus pass. It is not possible to "upgrade" from a premium pass to a premium-plus pass once the premium pass has been bought.
Buying a premium pass or a premium-plus pass will immediately unlock all premium/plus rewards of the tiers that already have been finished at the moment of buying. The premium plus pass will also unlock the next 5 tiers (for more specific info: read the premium plus section).
The first 16 seasons were officially numbered. Uptil season 16 the reward items in the mayor's pass specialisation section were numbered according to their original seasons. Since the 17th season these numbers have disappeared. In stead of the season number the name of the season is now shown in the building information.
The unique new reward buildings are indicated in bold in the rewards columns.
Most other rewards are the same as, or comparable to rewards from previous seasons. For a few seasons in a row now, the free pass rewards for tier 4 and tier 26 are swapped each new season, but this season it is the same as last season. This season the war cards rewards are the same as last season; usually the war cards change each season.
The number of unique new buildings from the free pass has steadily gone down since the mayor's passes were originally introduced.
The free pass gave 5 unique new buildings since season 3 (when the seasons were shortened from 12 to 6 weeks). But since season 7 the free pass only gave 4 unique new buildings. Since season 11, the number of unique new buildings for the free pass is further limited: now you only can get 3 unique new buildings.
Tier points
Starting in season 30 the points per tier were different from previous seasons. It is expected that this season the points per tier will be the same as in season 30.
The list contains the number of plumbob points that are needed for each tier and the rewards from the free pass, the premium pass and the premium-plus pass.
Double points week
In the previous mayor's pass seasons there was a "double points week" in the last week (which only lasts 5 days because the season ends when the 6th Contest of Mayors (CoM) week ends). During this week, the regular assignments as well as the milestone tasks give double points.
Lightning CoM week
During season 25 there was a "Lightning CoM week" in week 5 for the first time: each CoM lasted 48 hours, and there were 3 CoM's during this week. Each CoM had 20 tasks less than the usual amount, and the targets for the milestones were lower (as well as the points for the milestones). But adding those 3 CoM's together, there were more tasks to complete and more points from milestones to gain, than during a regular week.
The Lightning CoM week wasn't repeated during seasons 26, 28 and 30. Lightning CoM weeks did return in the 5th week during seasons 27 en 29, this time with 2 CoM's that each lasted 72 hours. In season 27 the second Lightning CoM had double points; probably due to a mistake by the developers.
Based on this pattern it is considered likely that there will be a lightning CoM week again in the 5th week of this season.
Free and premium pass
In the table below, "tier points" indicate the number of plumbob points needed to get to the indicated tier from the previous tier. "Total points" gives the number of plumbob points from start upto the indicated tier.
Calculation for the weekly average points: Taking the double points week into account, the "weekly av." number indicates what your average weekly plumbob points score should be during the first 5 weeks and double that amount in the final week, if you want to reach that tier by the end of the season. To get to tier 42 you will need 87k during the first 5 weeks and 175k in the final week.
Premium-plus pass
There is no weekly average calculated for the tiers of the premium-plus pass, because the average that you need depends on when you buy the premium-plus pass.
Buying it at the start of the season will let you advance the first 5 tiers (14,000 points). Buying the premium-plus pass at a later moment will let you advance 5 tiers from your position at the moment of buying.
Unfortunately this isn't the case at the end of the tier track. When you don't buy the pass when you have reached tier 42, you will still accumulate points but you no longer advance in tiers. Bying the premium-plus pass after reaching tier 42 will first advance you to tier 47. Then the extra points that you may have got after tier 42 will be taken into account and (if you have enough) will advance you further in the tiers.
Going from tier 42 to tier 47 will only save you 145k points. It is more profitable to buy the premium-plus pass when you have reached tier 37. That will bring you to tier 42, saving 194k points.
Taking the double points week into account in a six week season you need 136k weekly and 272k during the double points week to reach tier 52, when you buy the premium-plus pass at the start of the season. When you buy it immediately after having reached tier 37, you need 110k weekly and 221k during the double points week to finish tier 52.

2023.06.07 02:07 ChrisCraftyy Gah. What a morning. Great class, worst location. (Just venting.)

It was a 5 hour Mental Health First Aid certification class—think CPR but for mental health. To begin with, 5 hours with only a few 15 minute breaks is pretty rough. Thankfully, the first part of the course was done online at home—it took me about 2.5 hours last week.
What’s cool is that it really solidified that understanding and providing peer-based mental health help is one of my special interests and abilities. I had a lot to contribute but was able to not over-share or info-dump. Yay me!
But imagine this sensory hell scape of a classroom…
A very white smallish room with 15 foot ceilings. 3/4 of the walls are floor-to-ceiling windows that look out on a very busy pedestrian and vehicle intersection. The morning was sunny and the bright light filled the room and bounced off the shiny white tabletops.
The size of the room didn’t allow anyone much personal space. Someone near me was either eating mints or they were quietly burping booze. The hand soap in the bathroom was so disgusting. It prompted me when I came home to order unscented “leaf”/“sheet” soap I can carry with me in my purse from now on.
The instructors asked us multiple times to do group exercises (dammit really?!) that required lots of reading out loud and discussion about crisis de-escalation across the tables. The acoustics were abominable! (Thankfully I had my Loops.) Even with my earplugs, I could hear so many vehicles and pedestrians passing by. And there were no window shades so I could see it all going on. Of course the garbage truck showed up, beeping it’s beep as it backed up the alley. As you can imagine, my ADHD really got into all those sounds and visual distractions!
Oi! Too much. Too much.
Needless to say, I’m spending my afternoon and evening decompressing.

2023.06.07 02:06 evolvingintocomputer Spirits inhabiting our bodies during proxy work for the dead

At The MTC one of our Bishopbric was a Mormon Doctrine teacher at BYU. I don't remember his name but other missionaries revered him. On Sunday nights he would give us these "Meat" talks, where we would all eat up his deep dives into crazy doctrine.
As a way to keep us awake during the endowment we were taught that only what we saw and heard during the ceremony would be conveyed to the dead person's soul for whom we were a proxy. Like their spirit was actually connected to ours. If we fell asleep, the dead soul wouldn't get to see the video.
It is only years later thinking about these condemned spirits attaching themselves to me that I realize what happens in the temple is like a big seance. No wonder I got creepy vibes there even as a TBM.
Was anyone else taught this? Or other weird stuff from McConkie's "non-canon."

2023.06.07 02:06 Born-Beach Something twisted crawled out from the edge of the universe, and it’s coming our way.

The forest is black. Pitch black.
I pound over the dirt trail, my feet turning the pedals like twin pistons. The bicycle bounces and jolts, shuddering as it rolls across the wooden bridge. There’s something in the air tonight. A chill.
But it isn’t the chill of autumn. No, this is the chill of unease. It crawls up my spine carrying the deep-rooted knowledge that something about these woods, something about this trail isn’t right. It’s the unmistakable dread of being watched.
I stand up and ride harder. My lungs burn with every push of the pedals but I can’t shake the feeling that I need to get out of these woods fast. The hospital is twenty minutes away. I just need to make it there.
I’m close.
So close.
Bass rumbles behind me. It’s followed by a rush of wind, enough to throw me forward while ravishing the forest like a tempest. Trees groan. Their frames break and kneel, surrendering to the gale. Branches and leaves come loose. They ricochet through the air like shrapnel, cutting into my cheek and and I throw up an arm to keep myself from losing an eye.
This is insanity.
It’s lunacy.
I don’t know what’s happening, but I know I have to make it through this. I have to get out of these woods, get back to the hospital to see my sister before the heart monitor flatlines.
She’s not doing well. Are your mother and father home?
No, ma’am.
Can you get here to be with her? She doesn’t have long.
Yes ma’am. No matter what.
The distant bass nears, growing thunderous. It’s as though the whole world is shaking, like the Earth might split in two and swallow me whole. I grit my teeth. I let loose a defiant roar, sweat pouring down my temples as my legs tremble, willing my bike forward.
Faster, dammit!
There’s a flash. Then another.
I’m answered by an explosion of light, so violent and bright that I can’t see a damn thing. I holler. Scream. My body jerks forward as my front wheel collides with what feels like a fallen branch. Next thing I know, I’m flying over my handlebars.
What’s the phrase?
Yeah, that’s it.
I brace myself for a broken arm, maybe worse, but the pain never comes. Nothing comes. It’s as though I’m floating in limbo, like gravity’s unable to finish what it started. I can’t feel a thing– not the dirt beneath me, not my face pressed against the bark of a tree. For a little while, I think I’m dead. That I’m in purgatory.
But then my eyes adjust. The world comes into focus, beginning as a blurry smudge, but soon becoming a picture-perfect recreation of my worst nightmare.
I’m not in the forest anymore.
I’m above it.
I’m looking down at the mess of trees and I’m terrified at how small they are, how much smaller they’re getting with every passing second.
I’m floating into the sky, being carried by a narrow beam of light.


That was a long time ago. Thirty years, give or take.
A lot’s changed since then, but one thing’s remained the same: the nightmares. I have them every night. I dream about that blinding light, that same low bass and that same gut-churning horror of being eaten by the sky.
I used to think they were a coping mechanism. I figured that since the dreams came shortly after my older sister passed, that maybe they were just how my eleven-year-old brain was dealing with the grief. My therapist seemed to agree.
“You’re quite right that there may be a link there,” she’d tell me, lowering her glasses and offering a medical-grade smile. “It’s very likely that these dreams are a form of abstract healing, a means to allow your mind to come to terms with its trauma.”
For a long time, I thought she was right. Or better put, I hoped she was. Now though? Well, I think maybe we were both wrong.
Where are my manners?
I’m over here rambling about my childhood, and you’re wondering who the hell I am.
My name is Isaiah Mitchell. I’m a boogeyman, but not the cool kind. I don’t hide in closets or haunt old houses. I’m the type that your parents rant about while watching the evening news, the sort that tinfoil hats point to whenever things go wrong.
I’m what you might call a Man in Black.
The work I do is classified. It’s the sort of work that happens behind the scenes, with shadowy people in shadowy circles. So when I tell you that last night something catastrophic happened, I’m not talking about the stock market dipping a couple percentage points. I'm not talking about increased traffic on your morning commute.
I’m talking about trouble.
Lots of it.
It’s the kind of trouble that’s making me do something I don’t generally do, which is break rules. By the end of this, I might break all of them. But this is important, and in moments like these I find myself thinking about my late sister, Hope, and how she would have wanted me to do the right thing. It’s how she raised me, after all.
So here goes nothing.
This begins with a story, but it ends with a decision. The story is mine, and the decision is yours. When I’m finished, you get to choose whether you spend the time you have left a little wiser, or laugh this off as the ramblings of a lunatic.
Whatever you choose, I’ll have made my peace.
The story is a personal one. It’s about me, but it’s also about you– it’s about everything in the universe, right down to the last atom, and how all of us are facing a horror the likes of which we can’t begin to imagine.
It’s the story of the worst night of my life, and what might one day be the worst night of yours.
It goes like this.


The beam of light sucks me up and spits me into absolute darkness. The sensory whiplash is enough to give me a headache, something like a migraine that pulses near my temples and feels like a bulldozer inside my skull.
It’s uncomfortable.
But not half as uncomfortable as the situation I’m in.
“Hello?” I mumble to the dark. I stumble to my feet, feeling around my environment blindly. It’s cold. Hard. It feels like I might be in a room full of metal, but I can’t imagine where that would be. A warehouse?
Footsteps echo in the distance. They’re closing in.
“Who’s there?” I sputter, and I think maybe I’ve been drugged. People don’t just up and float into the sky in the middle of the night. It isn’t a thing.
That means I’m hallucinating.
That means whoever kidnapped me knows a thing or two about stealing kids.
That means they’re a professional.
What’s the phrase?
Serial killer.
Yeah, that’s it.
I clap my hands to my ears. It’s that same bass from the forest, except now it’s reverberating all around me. Another bass joins it. This one is different… coming from a new direction, with a lower tone. It’s almost like they’re communicating– like morse code.
“Please,” I beg. “Just let me go. I swear I won’t tell anybody!”
Static crackles. It’s followed by a sharp squeal of microphone feedback, then the buzz of modulating frequency. “Communication calibrated,” a digital voice says. “Subject identified: homosapien. Geographic location: New Mexico. Language model: English.”
There’s a pause, it’s long and silent enough that I can hear my pulse rushing through my veins. I’m positive I’m going to die. These things don’t happen to people who live to tell the tale.
“Can you understand us, homosapien?” the voice asks.
Yes, I say.
Can you turn on the lights? I ask.
The only thing worse than being murdered is being murdered in the dark.
Yes, they say.
I’m blinded for the third time in as many minutes. I blink, my eyes adjusting to the green glow as it fills the chamber. Wherever I am, it’s strange. Alien. Tall vats of liquid are scattered around a large, circular room, each hosting tubes that extend outward to a central console. Everything is metallic. I can’t make out any labels– any sort of identification at all.
“Is this level of light sufficient?” another voice asks, this one right behind me.
I wheel around, and my breath catches in my chest. In front of me is something that doesn’t exist– can’t exist. It’s roughly ten feet tall, and it’s got sharp teeth, sharp claws, scaled skin, and a tail. It’s a monster. A living, breathing monster.
I scramble backward. My back collides with one of the vats, and blue liquid sloshes against the glass. “Thehellareyou?” I shout all at once.
“We are the Chosen,” says the first voice, approaching my other side. “We are lifeforms from many galaxies away, and we have come to save humanity.”
They stare at me through giant eyes, and each of those eyes are filled with dozens of pulsing pupils. Almost like ink blots.
“I’ve been abducted…” I sputter, hardly able to breathe. “By aliens. Aliens… are real… and I’ve been abducted…”
“Correct,” says one of the aliens. I realize this one has gray scales, while the other has teal. At least I can tell them apart.
Gray looks at his arm, and a digital screen comes to life. He taps at it with a crooked finger. “Readings indicate heightened levels of cortisol and increased adrenal flow. Source: Fight or flight response. Biologically rational, but devoid of purpose.” He looks at me, cocks his over-large head to the side. “You have neither the option to fight us or flee us, so it would be best to comply. Do you understand?”
My jaw hangs open. I don’t know what to say. I don’t know what to do. Are these aliens really standing there reading me my Miranda Rights? “Are you going to probe me?” I ask. “Like the movies?”
Teal blinks at me, his pupils dilating. “Negative.” He points to a vat. “We will break down your genetic tissue into usable material, harvesting your most compatible DNA strands while discarding the rest. It is for the greater good.”
I follow his finger to the tank, and now that I’m right up against it, I can see clearly what’s floating inside. My stomach twists into a knot. Inside of it is a human body. Everything from the man’s waist down has been dissolved, and what’s left of his intestines are dangling freely.
“Jesus Christ!”
“There is no cause for concern,” Teal says. He lumbers across the chamber to the metallic console that all the tubes are feeding into. “Your disappearance will be accounted for. A clone will be deployed to resume your life, preventing suspicion and avoiding social disruption.”
“Let me get this straight,” I say, trying to ignore how faint I’m starting to feel. “You’re going to kill me… to save humanity?”
The room spins. My chest gets tight and my vision becomes a scrambled mess. My ears are ringing like church bells. I stumble, losing my sense of equilibrium and I think I taste vomit in my throat.
“No,” I mutter. “This isn’t happening… Can’t be happening…”
I steady myself against a vat, looking up to see a dead woman’s face staring back at me. Pieces of her skull have been eaten away. I can see the wrinkles of her brain underneath.
“Heart rate out of range,” Gray says, but I hardly hear him. He grabs my wrist, presses a device against the center of my hand.
I struggle. Fight. I try to use my teeth, but he’s strong, much stronger than me. A coldness pulses against my palm, almost like an ice cube, and soon that frigid sensation is traveling across my fingertips. Up my arm.
“What did you…” I mutter, but the sensation is rolling through the rest of my body. It’s soothing. My eyes find my palm and I see a strange shape seared into the skin, a scatter of dots surrounding a black square. Suddenly I can’t remember the thought I was trying to finish. Was any of this really worth panicking over?
It was just a few corpses in vats, after all.
“You have been administered a sedative,” Gray explains.
My heart rate slows. My ears stop ringing. The ghost of a smile sneaks across my face.
Gray’s staring at his display. “Cortisol levels reduced. Adrenal response suppressed. Biometric readings indicate subject has achieved a suitable level of suggestibility to proceed.”
“Affirmative,” says Teal, working the console.
I feel like I’m drifting through the lake on a warm summer day. My heart is full. I’m in absolute bliss, and all I can think is that Hope should get to experience this before she dies…
“Pulse is quickening,” Gray says with a frown.
My sister.
My dying sister, alone in the hospital wondering why her little brother abandoned her.
“Sedation effect dropping,” Gray says. “98%. 94%. Emotional instability reaching unacceptable levels.”
“Hope,” I sputter, feeling like I’m coming out of a daze. “I have to get to the hospital– please! My sister is sick! She needs me!”
Gray presses the device against my other hand, and another pulse of relaxation courses through me. “Invalid concern,” he tells me. “Clone will be a perfect recreation of you, body and mind. It will retain all memories allowing it to continue your life uninterrupted. Conclusion: your expiring sibling will receive suitable emotional support prior to her decomposition.”
Fucking aliens. It takes everything I have to fight against the sedative, to make my case. “How?” I groan. “How is my DNA supposed to save humanity? What the hell is it saving us from anyway?”
Teal turns from the console to face us. His giant eyes are narrowed in a thoroughly displeased manner. “Invalid request. Information too critical to risk dissemination.”
“Rebuttal,” says Gray. “Clone’s memory can be modified. Current biometric readings indicate high levels of emotional discontent, placing likelihood of a compromised harvest at 34%. Solution: permit subject to understand purpose of sacrifice. Result: sense of closure and enhanced probability of project success.”
Teal turns back to the console. “Rebuttal accepted. Proceed.”
Gray looks at me. He places his scaly fingers against my head, and I squirm a little. “Brace yourself for disorientation,” he tells me. “You will experience physical unease and hyperstimulation. After, you will understand the horror that awaits your species in the dark.”


For a long time, that’s as far as the nightmare gets. Gray prattles on that I’m about to see the truth, some twisted fate that justifies melting humans into sludge, but before he can deliver the goods, I wake up.
Every. Time.
Blue balls doesn’t begin to describe it.
Last night, it happens again. The nightmare, I mean. Same aliens, same tanks of human soup, but this time I wake up in a cold sweat. My phone is ringing on the bedside table. There’s a name on the screen that I hate to see.
“Whatisit?” I grumble.
“Jesus Christ, Mitchell. I’ve been calling for ten minutes!”
My boss. Lisa.
She goes off. The words are coming out like machine-gun fire, and from the background chatter I figure she’s speaking to more than just me. It sounds like there’s a crowd around her, like she’s briefing suits as she jogs down a hallway.
“Got all that?” she asks.
Something about a shitstorm. Something about an F35. The air force just shot down a UAP, which is how we say UFO these days to avoid getting laughed out of the room. Apparently it happened in New Mexico. My backyard.
This calls for a liter of coffee. Maybe two.
I stumble into the kitchen and put a pot on. I have some time while she holds the phone to her chest and barks orders at the drones around her. One cream. One sugar. My spoon clinks against the side of the mug as her voice blares through the speaker.
“Mitchell?” she says. “Still there?”
She says she’s got coordinates. I take a sip of scalding java. I’m dazed enough I barely feel it burn my tongue. My fingers punch the coordinates into my laptop, bringing up the location the supposed UAP was shot down.
I spit my coffee over my screen.
“The fuck?” I mutter, leaning forward and doing a double take at the map.
“What is it?” she’s asking.
“Nothing,” I’m saying.
But it’s a lie. The truth is, the coordinates are a dead match for the forest where I had my waltz with psychosis thirty years ago. They’re the coordinates from my dream. Right down to the rickety old bridge.
I ask her if she’s sure the numbers are correct.
“Am I sure?” she snaps. “Look, if you’re asking me if this is another Chinese spy balloon then the answer is go fuck yourself. I’ve been pulling my hair out for the past twenty minutes. This is the real deal, so suit up and get ready to go. I’ve got a bird on the way.”
The clock on my microwave reads 2:34 a.m. and my stomach is telling me to sort my life out. “Do I have time for breakfast?” I ask.
The line goes dead.
Twenty minutes later, a helicopter is landing on my lawn. I board it in a daze, and we take off in the direction of the crash like we’re trying to outrun a cruise missile. I’m watching the lights of the countryside drift by, and it occurs to me that from all the way up here, in the dead of night, they almost look like stars.
I wonder how long it’d take to snuff them out.
How long it’d take to burn a whole galaxy to ashes?
To crush a universe in the palm of your hand?
Things to consider.
The closer we get to the crash site, the worse my thoughts become. They’re bordering on obsessive. I’m tangoing with darkness. Radio chatter is coming through the com line, something about aliens and extraterrestrials, but all I’m thinking about is controlling my bladder.
I’m drowning in hypotheticals.
I’m wondering what happens if I lose my mind between here and the crash site, what the protocols are, where they’ll take me. Do I get the night off? The week?
“Everything okay, sir?”
It’s the co-pilot. She’s turning in her seat and looking at me like I’m having a medical emergency.
“You look a bit pale,” she tells me.
My muscles work overtime as I twist my mouth into a smile. “Never better,” I lie. “How far out are we?”
“Twenty miles,” she says with a reassuring grin. She turns back in her seat and I take the opportunity to let out an exhausted sigh.
I close my eyes. Take a dozen deep breaths.
Happy thoughts.
I try to ignore how dry my mouth is, how badly my hands are shaking. I try to ignore the fact that every time I look down at my palms, I see that same scatter of dots, that same faded square that no doctor has been able to explain. “I’ve never seen scars like that,” they tell me. “How’d you get them?”
I don’t know, I tell them.
I don’t know.
But I do.
I’ve known this entire time, probably, but I’ve just been too terrified to accept it. I’m not what I think I am– this world isn’t what I think it is either. It’s all of this that’s making me want to curl into a ball. It’s making me want to weep on the floor, to scream at the top of my lungs and pull my hair out with everything I have.
It’s making me want to throw open the helicopter door, take a breath of fresh air and then plunge head-first into the dirt like a human turnip. And if I thought it was that easy, I might just do it.
But somehow, I know it isn’t.
I know it won’t save me– won’t save us, from what’s coming.
See, last night I had the same dream I’ve had for the last thirty years. The same abduction. The same aliens. But last night, I got to see the director’s cut. The Extended Edition. Last night, when Gray told me he was going to show me just how fucked we all are, he actually came through.
Imagine that.
What I saw was everything.
I saw how all of this ends. How all of it began. What I saw is what’s waiting for us in the black infinity of space. And the more that I think about it, the more I think it might be driving me mad.
“Just up ahead,” says the pilot. “Ten minutes to touch down.”
Eight minutes.
“Jesus,” he says, at the three minute mark. “Are you two seeing this?”
And up ahead is a plume of smoke, rising into the night sky. There’s the faint flicker of fading fires, the haphazard glow of industrial lighting, and there, at the center of it all, is the unmistakable shape of something that shouldn’t exist.
“That… doesn’t look like it’s from this planet…” the co-pilot mutters over the com line.
“No,” the pilot replies, and his voice is shaking. “It doesn't.”
They’re right. They both are. What it looks like is something extra-terrestrial, something alien. It looks like something ripped straight from my worst nightmares.
And really, that’s just where I wish it had stayed.

2023.06.07 02:05 AA56561 [Event] Preparing for the Worst

Preparing for the Worst

Should Peaceful Reunification become impossible, and should the Chinese leadership make the decision to retake the rebellious province of Chinese Taipei, it is highly likely that the United States of America and American allies in the region will seek to defeat the People’s Liberation Army on the battlefield. Due to China’s enormous and ever-growing investment into its military, it is highly likely that in a conventional conflict, the People’s Republic of China would come out on top - a result which will likely be completely unacceptable to the United States and the leadership in Washington. Therefore, it is to be expected that the US and its allies play dirty, by knocking out Chinese satellites for instance, or targeting sensitive communication nodes of China.
It is vital that even if the United States decides to engage in these activities, the People’s Liberation Army must be able to continue its ongoing military operations at a high pace and efficiency. Following several briefings by Chinese security experts and members of the PLA, the Central Military Commission has ordered for a program to be introduced, which will seek to harden critical nodes and potential targets for enemy strikes, with
Airbases and Ports
Ports and military airports are obvious targets for strikes, as they will be critical convergence points for supplies and hardware used in the military operations of the People’s Liberation Army. In order to increase protection of these sites, perimeter security will be increased, with fences, check points, video surveillance and regular aerial and maritime patrols being set up. All ports and air bases that are expected to be used in a potential conflict over Chinese Taipei will also seek heavier air defenses, which will have the ability to intercept large numbers of enemy precision-guided munitions without getting saturated. Cyber security will also be upped, to ensure that critical systems, such as power supplies, air traffic control and dockside communication networks, remain safe from unauthorized breaches.
Power Grid
Another tempting target for the Americans may be the Chinese power grid - knocking it out would wreak havoc within the Chinese public. This in turn would make conducting a massive and highly complex military operation all the more difficult, and raise the possibility of a potential defeat on the battlefield. Under orders from the Central Military Commission, the State Grid Corporation of China has been instructed to increase the resilience of the Chinese power grid against targeted cyber and conventional strikes. In order to achieve the level of resilience, the SGCC has begun to implement “Network Segmentation”, making it more difficult for hackers to gain access to critical systems, all the while restricting access to make unauthorized access much more difficult. Key nodes in the Chinese power grid will see an increase in protection, both in terms of physical security, such as fences, barbed wire, sensors, as well as personnel, with security guards being deployed on a much larger scale. During hostilities, plans have been drawn up for the deployment of anti-air defenses to critical systems within the Chinese power supply, such as large power plants. Furthermore, the SGCC will work to make the Chinese power grid more flexible, with many redundancies being worked into the system, additional back-up generators being planned and additional routing systems being designed. With all these measures, the Chinese power grid will make a much more difficult target than in the past.
Targeting Chinese cyber infrastructure would cause huge economic, social and military damages, as much of Chinese society, as well as much of the People’s Liberation Army, relies on cyberspace for much of their daily lives and operations. In case of hostilities, a logical step would be to knock out the enemy cyberspace, weakening an enemy’s ability to engage in complex military operations. In order to minimize the risk of such an attack, the Central Military Commission has ordered that the defensive infrastructure be increased to fend off complex hacking attempts by enemy forces. In order to make this happen, regular security assessments have been announced, with changes to China’s defensive cyber infrastructure being made to hone its ability to defend Chinese cyber infrastructure. Additionally, access controls will be implemented, making it more for unauthorized users to gain access to the systems. Even if they do manage to gain access, the newly implemented “Network Segmentation” will help to make the damages of such an attack much less severe. Lastly, the People’s Republic of China will set up a center for monitoring Chinese cyberspace, ready to respond to any threats in real time. The Center, known as the “Cyberspace Defense Management Center”, will be comprised of China’s brightest minds in terms of cyber defense, sourced from the People’s Liberation Army, government institutions and China’s fledgling private sectors.
On the modern battlefield, more systems than ever rely on satellites to function. Knocking out enemy military satellites would seriously degrade the ability of the opposing forces to communicate, as well as wreck much of the enemies military equipment, especially those which rely - at least to a degree - on satellite navigation or communication. In a conflict with the United States, it is therefore not unrealistic to see Satellites as a critical vulnerability of the People’s Liberation Army. In order to protect Chinese space assets, the China National Space Administration has been instructed to plan for hardened satellite designs - which will allow for the satellites to be engaged by ASATs, and enable the satellite to continue to operate - to a certain extent at least. Furthermore, cyber security will be massively increased, with the goal of making it virtually impossible to hack Chinese space assets and deactivate these.
However, this is not enough. If the Americans really put their mind to it, engage in a concerted effort with their allies and partner, they will be able to simply blow up Chinese satellites with enough anti-satellite munitions of various types. This is far from ideal, so the Central Military Commission has decided to push for redundancies to be developed which will allow the People’s Liberation Army to function completely without satellites.
In terms of secure communications, the People’s Liberation Army will begin to equip all units with redundant systems - which will frequently be used during exercises and training to familiarize soldiers with these systems should they ever be required. “Ad Hoc Mesh Nets” will be set up, allowing military hardware to communicate with each other without the need for satellites. Furthermore, the PLAAF will procure a sizable number of a “Airborne Communication Relay Platform”, with a variant of the Y-20 transport aircraft having been ordered, with these aircraft being designed to help combat forces communicate with each other and with commanders in the headquarters without the need of satellites. Wired Communication Infrastructure will begin to be implemented on all levels of the PLA, in order to make communication possible even in the toughest of situations, as well as making eavesdropping impossible without physical access.
Satellites are not only used by militaries to communicate, they also play a major role in helping forces position themselves and in most long-range military hardware. Global Navigation Satellite Systems are a critical capability in any conflict, and should these go offline, redundancies must be in place - lest the PLA intends to rout on the battlefield. Inertial navigation systems will be installed on all military hardware requiring it, giving the commanders a rough idea of where they are. In case of emergency, the PLA will have special “beacons” that emit signals at known locations, allowing for forces and hardware to roughly acquire their location.
Command and Control Centers
Command and Control Centers, especially those housing key military and political leadership, will be prime targets for the enemy. Attacks will likely come in the form of a mix of cyber- and electronic warfare, precision-guided munitions and infiltrations. If the enemy manages to take out a number of these centers, the People’s Liberation Army C2 capabilities may be permanently damaged for the period of the military campaign, something which could bring catastrophic consequences with it. Several state-of-the-art command and control centers will be built for the Eastern Theater Command, these will be deep underground and will come with heavy security measures - ranging from electrified fences to the deployment of surface-to-air missile batteries. Alternate locations and staff will be in place to immediately take over command of operational forces, should the existing infrastructure be compromised or be engaged. Major resources will be poured into making the communication systems more resilient to enemy interference.

2023.06.07 02:04 user389473838 is my phone potentially hacked ?

i was on tiktok and i got an ad for a gift card claim for free and i was like why not and when i clicked on the website it opened but not in my browser just asa preview thing on tiktok. and it asked like three questions which were like how often do you go shopping and like online or in person shopping nothing where i needed to insert any of my information. and then it asked for my email and at this point i was kinda like suspicious so i put in like a different email i had when i was like younger and i still can still use it i just don’t and the email doesn’t even have my name or my real birthday linked to it. is my phone okay ? or are they tracking me now because i hit on the link. if anything is compromised what is it? and if i’m at risk of something bad what should i do ?

2023.06.07 02:03 DrDisrespecttt DLC RELEASE/ANNOUNCEMENT VERY SOON. (detailed explanation)

With Bandai Namco participating in summer game fest on june 8th. I did some digging out of curiosity and noticed a pattern regarding the DLC releases for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. After the first DLC arrived in Season 1, it took around 7 months for the next one to come out. It's been almost 7 months since the release of the first DLC. So, here's what I personally think: Bandai Namco will most likely announce a new DLC for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot this week at the Summer Game Fest, which is happening on June 8th.
Now, don't take my word as gospel, but this DLC is all about the stories and might not actually be released exactly 7 months after. It's a bit bigger than "A New Power Awakens," but the time frames are still pretty similar. Let me break it down for you:
The first DLC, "A New Power Awakens - Part 1," was released on April 28, 2020. (This was a smaller dlc hence 3 months after release instead of 6 months) Then, the second DLC, "A New Power Awakens - Part 2," came out around 6 months and 20 days later. After that, we got the "Trunks: The Warrior of Hope DLC" after approximately 6 months and 24 days.
So, the pattern here seems to be roughly 7 months. This means it's quite likely that the new DLC will drop potentially in July or August. As for DLC 3 for Season Pass 2, I'm thinking it might come out in early 2024, maybe between January 20th and March. But hey, all of this is just speculation, right?
Oh, and here's an interesting tidbit: The Bardock DLC was actually announced three months before its release. So, if the plan is to release the new DLC in August, we should be hearing about it this month or next month. If everything goes according to this time gap for Season Pass 2, we could see DLC 2 hitting us in July or early August. But remember, none of this is set in stone. It's all up in the air, and I'm just putting the pieces together based on my observations.
So i think this will be released in August specifically august 3rd-7th, 2023
So, whether or not they announce it at the Summer Game Fest, I still have a hunch that the DLC will come out in July or August. Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement sometime this month. But again this is pure speculation and merely a likely outcome and not confirmed until it happens.

2023.06.07 02:02 TheTedKArchive The Ethics of Online Archive Curation

I'm a contributor to an online archive of books and essays called The Ted K Archive and I'm just interested in any and all arguments for changing up the website. I'm also open to arguments the archive should have just been a physical personal collection that I show other weird people at dinner parties.
Here's how the website is explained on the about page:
We, everyone who has contributed, have archived:
• A ton of primary source documents on Ted's life and ideas.
• Documents analyzing the effect he had on the public's understanding of radical environmentalists, anarchists, terrorists, criminals, the mentally ill & simple mental neurodivergence.
• Lots of great suggested reading on anarchism & other issues.
We, the librarians who bought the website domain, are pro-tech anarchists, but we just find his life story and impact really interesting.
So, we’re hoping the website can work to draw people in with similar politics to him and similar mental health issues frankly. Then for the cold hard reality of the primary source reading material, the epic-ness of the suggested reading material and the inviting discussion spaces connected to the website, to all have a deprogramming effect and be a mental health support.
And here's why the name of the website was chosen:
People who are curious about his life and impact are just the main audience we hope to draw in with this website.
Since we think he's going to be remembered as a true crime curiosity anyways, we might as well capitalize on that and use it as a space to promote critiques of people with similar politics to him and help with similar mental health issues to him.
Finally, here's a list of ethical steps taken by the project:
• We have a list of essays critiquing Ted’s politics & philosophy on the front page of the website.
• There are long critiques and disclaimers added to some texts and we aim to add more.
• When collecting together research on misanthropic groups and projects, we simply title the text ‘a text dump on ______’. That way for example we don’t dignify fictional stories terror groups weave when they write their own press releases and title them as communiqués.
• Anyone can join the debate over which texts should go up on the website, obviously if you join just to troll or spam though, you will be removed.
• A record will be kept of all texts that were rejected, whether for minor formatting reasons or deeply held political reasons.
• A record will also be kept of controversial texts that were approved, where for example there was a sizable disagreement.
• Ideally, in the future we will have popular sorting mechanisms directly under the main search box, such as a check box for 'only anarchist texts' that would exclude texts labelled 'not anarchist'.
I also recently archived a book on hunting with a bow and arrow that I think has valuable historical significance, but it did make me feel uncomfortable.
The book is called Hunting with the Bow & Arrow, and I simply found the book after researching the sad story of the 'last wild indian'.
But it does include horrible trophy hunting pictures of animals killed slowly by arrow shot.
Finally, here's a few other archival projects for comparison:
The Ted Kaczynski Papers - A University special collections archive which Ted K sends copies of all his letters to, the library is offline, but people can ask for scans of two folders per month.
UNABOM Collection - Another university one that is made up of donated scans by an FBI guy who worked on the UNABOM taskforce. Lots of the scans are online in downloadable pdfs.
I don't think either of the archives above even did anything to publicize their archives, which was potentially a conscious ethical choice, to not make it easier to find for zealots, so to attempt to mainly cater to academic researchers.
The Anarchist Library - Huge archive that includes some non- and ex-anarchist texts, to document the reasons why people left anarchism or came to the philosophy late. But, it means archiving some really asinine stuff, like primitivist terrorists 'communiques'. I think they're wrong to not include disclaimers at the top of texts and to not format some of the texts as text dumps, but their argument is that's simply not their job as archivists.

2023.06.07 02:02 ArthurDrakoni A Scottish Podcast follows two Scottish dudes trying to create their own horror investigation podcast. This is my review.

A Scottish Podcast follows two Scottish dudes named Lee and Douglas. Lee used to be a radio DJ, but he recently lost job. In his quest to not starve, Lee has stumbled across, what he thinks, will be a surefire path to success: starting a paranormal investigation podcast. Lee soon drags Douglas along for the ride, and the two set out to make the best paranormal investigation horror podcast set in Scotland.
I wouldn't so much call A Scottish Podcast a horror podcast. I'd say that it's more of a comedy/slice-of-life podcast that happens to include horror elements. The podcast primarily focuses on Lee and Douglas' day-to-day lives, and the various mundane aspects of running a podcast. Still, there's plenty of laughs to be had, and shout-out to other podcasts.
A Scottish Podcast is very much a character-driven show. There are plot threads that are set up at the start of the season, but it really is the characters, and the focus on their lives, that carries the show. Lee has a freewheeling devil-may-care personality. He's the type to jump in first and hammer out the details as he goes along. That pretty much describes how he created The Terror Files. By contrast, Douglas is more sensible and cautious. Well, he did agree to Lee's crazy idea, but otherwise he's pretty sensible. He's also got a bit of a chip on his shoulder due to the time he shit in his pants on live television.
Lovecraft was clearly a pretty big influence on the creators. Several of the strange things Lee and Douglas investigate have strong Lovecraftian undertones to them. For example, in season two they investigate a professor from Miskatonic University who conducted experiments for the British government during World War II. Also, apparently Miskatonic University is real in the world of A Scottish Podcast; albeit as a mundane university that is a bit annoyed that Lovecraft featured them in his works. Season one also featured Lovecraftian horrors lurking beneath Edinburgh, but also an undead cannibal warrior from the 10th century. A Scottish Podcast even did it's own adaption of The Shadow Over Innsmouth. The set-up is that Douglas is traveling to England on holiday, and stays at the seaside town of Innsmouth. Ah, so that's how Lovecraft slipped that one under the radar. Everyone thought the reals Innsmouth was in New England, like the story, but it was actually in Old England all along. Thought, to be clear there is no Innsmouth on either side of the Atlantic in real life.
The voice cast in absolutely fantastic. Rob Cudmore and Matthew McLean play our two leads. Sarah Golding, a true gem of the audio drama community, plays Drunk Helen. Karim Kronfli plays Bruce the friendly and jovial, but still violent and murderous, local gangster.
In addition to the main show, A Scottish Podcast has had many fun special. They did a Burns Night Special, where the characters all read poetry, but it was all original works, rather than the poems of Robert Burns. They also did a special where the characters all read poems written by HP Lovecraft. This was framed as a poetry contest that Bruce was running to sponsor a butcher shop he owns.
Have you listened to A Scottish Podcast? If so, what did you think?

2023.06.07 02:02 reluctantreddit Dicrocaulon Ramulosum advice?

I bought a rattail cactus from a vendor and she threw in YAE (Yet Another Echeveria) and also what is obviously a dicrocaulon ramulosum cutting. I can't find much info about the latter, so I think I'm going to have to wing it.
It looks a lot like Monilaria moniliformis except it grows on long thin stems like a string of [whatever], and the bunny ear leaves are very sparkly in sunlight. What little I've been able to gather about it indicates that it grows in the same quartz fields of the Hardveldt in Namaqualand in South Africa as Monilaria moniliformis. But indications are that it is heat-loving and winter-dormant, which is exactly the opposite of Monilaria moniliformis.
Unless I hear otherwise I'm going to plant it in the same mesemb soil that my lithops, Gibbaeum, and split rock love. I'll probably water it a tiny bit more than them, though, because although its leaves are quite succulent its stems definitely are not.
I'd appreciate any advice, and especially any personal experiences, with growing this plant. And I'd love to know if it has a common name; the only common names I've seen for it are in Chinese. For now I'm probably going to continue calling it String of Bunny Ears.

2023.06.07 02:02 m2wtf 20 [TF4F] New England USA - Sweetheart Looking for a Cutie <333

Hiya folks of Reddit :)
Do you ever wish, when you come home from a long day's work, that there was a caring, affectionate girl full of warmth waiting to talk to and care for you? Maybe you can unpack the day with her, or just talk about your mutual interests and hobbies while she listens and comforts you. Someone who has depth, and wants to see every facet of you and your wonderful personality? Look no further!
My name's Chloe, and I might just be the girl for you! I feature a caring heart, listening skills of a god, and a near-infinite stockpile of knowledge that is absolutely useless! Also, I have AWARD-WINNING HUGS! Please, I love hugging and cuddling, so just lemme hug you :).
Nitty-gritty facts section! I'm a trans woman, and a former college varsity athlete (bonus points if you can guess the sport), and I'm majoring in History and Classics. [send a bear emoji if ur reading this ;)] Hopefully, I'll either be a high school teacher or a college professor one day. I am a massive Star Wars fan, and my favorite tv shows/movies are usually historical/historical fiction or science fiction. I also make art! I'm mostly doing wood sculpture and drawing to relax these days :)
I also am really looking for someone who can be a supportive shoulder to lean on when dysphoria hits, can give me advice on outfits, make-up, anything :) (NOTE: proficiency in stuff not required lol, I need any help you can offer lol). I want to grow into myself along side your own personal growth!
What I'm looking for from you! A kind person (women + femmes get priority, but everyone's welcome!) who will treat me well, will be there to support me through my transition, and will positively impact my day :). Also a plus if you're on the more in-charge side of the spectrum, both in conversation and in the bedroom ;).
Anyways, thanks for reading, and I hope to hear from you soon! <3All the best, Chloe xo

2023.06.07 02:01 cats-in-glasses Please help me get a visit from Peaches!

What the title says. I only started playing the game again a few weeks ago and all the regular cats have visited except for Peaches, who was last seen three years ago :(
I’ve been using this post as a guide but so far Peaches hasn’t shown up. Before that I was following articles covering all the toys Peaches likes but still no luck.
It’s been a couple days so should I just have more patience or do I need to change things up?
If anyone who’s had Peaches visit recently could give me some tips on what toys and food she likes, it’d be much appreciated!
P.S. it’s not thaaaaat important but I got my coworkers into neko atsume too and we’re all competing to be the first person to get a picture of Peaches and of course I’m hoping that person will be me :P

2023.06.07 01:59 AutoModerator WEEKLY TYPING THREAD: Please read this before creating "typing help" posts and for help with interpreting test results!

Welcome to the world of Enneagram! Please do not create posts regarding interpretation of your test results or typing questions ("type me", "what type am I?", "what type do you think this is?", “guess my type”) in Enneagram. With so many people trying to determine their type, it creates clutter and repetition in the feed with similar answers given for every post, and is frustrating to the community. Instead, please comment on this post with questions related to finding your type or typing other people and we will try our best to help you. This post will be refreshed at the end of every Tuesday in order to ensure your comment is seen throughout the week. You can also head over to EnneagramTypeMe and TypingEnneagram for subreddits dedicated to helping you find your type.
‘Type me’ Tuesdays
The exception to the above rule is every Tuesday, type-me questions are welcome on the main page (12:00AM-11:59PM UTC). Please flair your post appropriately, and still no test results please.
Interpretation of test results
The enneagram is a model of personality that focuses on why we do what we do, rather than our external traits themselves. Because of this, test results are, at best, a starting place for discovering your type. The top results give you an idea of what types you might be, but in order to know for sure, you’ll have to read up on the types and do some introspection of your internal motivations in addition to your patterns of behaviour and coping mechanisms.
You can find some basic starting summaries of the 9 types at enneagram institute:
Typing help
If you do decide to ask for help with typing on Tuesday or in this thread, others will need descriptions of how you relate to the core motivations, fears, harmonic triads, defence mechanisms and / or coping patterns of the types you’re torn between to help you in a meaningful way. Because the enneagram is based on your own internal motivations, only you can ultimately confirm your type, but the more detail you can give and the more honest you can be about your internal motivations and how these relate to possibly dysfunctional behaviour, the more likely someone will be able to help you get there. Be sure to indicate what types you're considering for yourself /others and why you think you may relate to those types for the best results.
Please feel free to post on the main page (anytime) regarding questions about the types you’re considering or subtleties between them in order to try to understand the types better while you figure things out, but make sure this is phrased such that you are looking for understanding of the types themselves, not a typing.
Lastly, for deeper knowledge, here are some recommended books:
The Complete Enneagram(Beatrice Chestnut)
The Wisdom of the Enneagram (Riso and Hudson)
The Enneagram (Helen Palmer)
Character and Neurosis (Claudio Naranjo)
Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation in helping to keep this community fun & engaging for everyone. Best of luck in finding your enneagram type!

2023.06.07 01:58 insiderway To the mods of Ni_Bondha

If you mods have any balls just answer my questions, post them in Ni_Bondha and run a poll whether banning me from the sub is fair or unfair
1.Do you have any evidence of me harassing any member of this sub?
2.Do you know any of my alt account through which I stalked other members?
3.Do you have any evidence of me throwing shit on any member of this sub?
4.Do you consider asking a random person on our sub if it was someone from my original account as stalking?
5.Do you consider revealing someone's previous reddit account (just user name without any personal info) as disclosing their personal or confidential information/Identity?
6.Do you have any evidence stating me, historical and dosabandi is a group?
7.Can you identify the creepy behavior of mine from my posts or comment history?
8.Do you think it's is fair to ban someone just because someone has thrown shit on him without any proper evidence?
If you say yes to any of these questions you have to provide a proper evidence or a justification.

2023.06.07 01:57 tripper74 Not Interested in Dating

TLDR: I don’t understand dating nor am I interested in it at all and I’m wondering if any other autistic people feel the same.
Hi! I'm 25f, not officially diagnosed but I largely suspect that I am autistic, and I'm working on getting an assessment soon. Anyway, something I have found about myself and I'm not sure if it's attributed to autism or something else is that I am not interested at all in dating. I know some autistic people are, but I personally am not. It's starting to really upset my parents and cause tension with them. They ask me, "don't you want to get married one day and have kids? If so, you need to start dating first." And my answer to that isn't exactly "no”; it's not that I'm one of those people who certainly DOESN'T want to get married or DOESN'T want kids, but it's more like when you ask a 5 year old what they want to be when they grow up and they say "a veterinarian" – they want it someday, but it's not like they're anywhere near ready for it right now and couldn’t possibly do it yet.
I feel like a child in many ways, and this is one of them. Yeah I'm 25 (admittedly I do look a lot younger and a lot of people think I’m a teen) but whereas girls my age were interested in dating 11 years ago when we were 14, I still haven't gotten that urge. I can admire that someone is cute but I never had the urge to date or have a boyfriend and I thought it would show up when I’m older but it still hasn’t. I know I am straight because I know I am attracted to men, but again, in the way that a child has a crush on a boy. It’s not that I never want to get married, but it’s that I don't have any interest in learning how to play that social dating game. The thought of putting yourself on display to be judged sounds incredibly weird and artificial to me, especially since I'm awful with small talk and have really niche interests and personality and I'm very picky with who I like (even as friends). I am honestly perfectly happy the way I am and don’t mind a single bit about being single, if it weren’t for the fact that I’m 25 and my family is worried that if I don’t start dating soon, then when will I ever start?
So my parents are heavily pressuring me to start "dating around". This sounds like absolute hell to me. Not to mention I have feelings for someone already, but even if I didn't, the dating scene sounds like HELL. They have forced-sent me to multiple "young adult social mingles" for my culture and I have left EVERY SINGLE ONE sobbing in tears because I felt awful during them (likely a meltdown due to sensory overload and social masking exhaustion). Not to mention that people there treat me like a poor child to be pitied because I clearly feel so anxious, so it’s not even productive at all to “meet a guy”. I suppose they're doing tough love and trying to push me to get me used to it, but I don't think it works that way in this case.
If I have to date (which I don't even care to do yet, but when I do), I'd rather meet online first, and even better, I'd rather do a dating app that isn't based on pictures because I don't want people to just judge me by a picture and mindlessly swipe. My parents don’t understand what I mean by that because I admittedly am conventionally pretty, and they think that the only people on those apps would only be there because they’re “ugly”. But that’s not my point; my point is, how am I supposed to judge someone based on their looks when I know nothing about them? And I don’t want anyone to judge me based on my looks without knowing me either. It feels so shallow and weird and artificial.
And then going on a date, small talk is the DEATH of me. My parents say “just ask them about work” and I’m like, okay and??? Where does that get me??? I don’t care about their job, so why do I have to ask about it? And the thought of going out specifically to be judged if they like you or not sounds awful. My RSD is so soooooo bad and causes shutdowns for me. This is why I prefer to be friends first and then organically grow into something else.
Also, on a side note, I'm not at all interested in kissing because I have horrible sensory sensitivities and saliva is a sensory nightmare for me. I've never had my first kiss and that's totally fine with me. Other forms of intimacy are fine – I'm even way more comfortable talking about literal sex than I am for kissing. I just have never wanted to press my LIPS against someone else's. Ew.
I’m not really looking for advice, I’m just genuinely wondering if any of you feel the same. Is dating incredibly confusing for you too? Do you have any desire to do it?
P.S. There has been one guy I have had a close relationship with and experienced mutual romantic feelings, but the difference is we started as friends first. That makes all the difference to me – we didn't meet on a dating app or go on multiple screening dates with people with the intention of finding a mate. We just met online as friends and eventually developed romantic feelings. Perfect, you say? Well no because 1. we are online and haven't met irl yet and 2. my parents also strongly disapprove of this because he didn’t go to college…yeah. So we aren't bf/gf.
Disclaimer: Not looking for a “you’re asexual!” response. I know I can feel attraction, as demonstrated by me and that guy. My point is, I didn’t meet him through “dating”; he was already my friend and it happened naturally. I’m not talking about attraction or lack thereof; I'm referring to the social confusion of traditional dating.
