Hey Greengannon. :lol:

You talking about Lugosian, I assume?

It really sucks banning people. I hate doing it every time. I remember every single permanent ban I've ever dropped, over 10 years of running forums.

I never, ever do it lightly.
The user you mentioned did prompt my post, yes. And the obstruction apparently occured over phone converstation.

However, what I said is not just about this moment. I've been gone a hell of a long time for similar reasons.


The fandom is not dying, only this place is. If it wants to persist, it needs to create new and alternate methods of attracting fans and not losing any more.

I would advise that things should not be dealt with via hearsay only. As previously mentioned, that is largely why I avoid this place.

Though I was never banned, a large swath of "hearsay" was spread about me, which is only vaguely partially true at best.

But now I hear of this sort of thing continuing to pass as truth, against other people that are not me. I don't like where that is headed.

I never moderate based on hearsay. Only hard evidence.

If you're talking to the member in question, you should consider taking what they say with a grain of salt.

I do take what they say with a grain of salt, but I also remember the past, and how this place operates.

We should probably speak privately from here out about these matters however.

One thing I dislike about the weather turning cold is my fingers get so cold. It's hard to keep them warm, and use them at the same time. :lol:

I love Haven Bay so much:



I got the Walmart version of this set, it came with Haven Bay (character exclusive to this version of the playset), Princess Celestia, Twilight Sparkle, and more accessories, which the standard version does not have.

This recent influx of Simpsons memes annoys me. Some of the source material is over a decade old, yet these Reddit plebs are gladly taking ownership of it as though the episodes aired this season. I remember watching, "22 Short Films About Springfield," on TV, and when I wanted to watch it again I waited days for it to fully download on Kazaa over a fledgling commercial cable modem connection. The Plebbitors have more than enough Jake Paul to meme about, and they should stick to their bloody generation.
See the bunny bees and puffs of steam from singing kettles in the trees. Bread and butterflies with fork and knives who like to make a meal of time.
Life is clockwork quick - lightning slow. Faster on your toes, so eat your sugared dream and taste the day before it runs away.

Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while. Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies. Hoping for the best but expecting the worst, are you going to drop the bomb or not? Let us die young or let us live forever. We don't have the power but we never say never. Sitting in a sandpit life is a short trip, the music's for the sad men.

We can dance if we want to, we can leave your friends behind. Cause our friends don't dance and if they don't dance, well they're no friends of mine. Say, we can go where we want to, a place where they will never find. And we can act like we come from out of this world, leave the real one far behind

More Overwatch stuff

Some general ideas and concepts for Overwatch heroes that I've had. Starting with healers because we really need some more healers

TOTEM BASED HEALER HERO
A hero who builds and places static totems on the map, much like Symmetra or Torbjorn, but the totems have an AoE healing effect instead of doing damage. They might also have another type of totem that has a different buffing or debuffing effect (since every other healer has that as well)

DOG SUPPORT HERO
This actually isn't my idea, but I thought the idea was really cool and interesting so I'll mention it anyway: a support hero that is a dog (probably something like a husky), and instead of having an actual healing ability, they have the ability to pick up existing health packs on the map and bring them to teammates. Probably would have high mobility for the ability to work well, would either have high base speed like Tracer/Genji or a movement ability (maybe some kind of pounce that can double as an attack?). The idea of seeing a helpful dog bringing health packs to teammates is as unique as it is adorable. The only problem is that this would mean you would have to shoot a dog, you horrible monster

TANK/SUPPORT HYBRID
So we have a lot of hybrid role types in Overwatch, and in fact, most of the heroes are hybrids of some kind. Sombra, Ana, Soldier, Lucio and Zenyatta are DPS/support hybrids, Roadhog, Mei, D.Va, Zarya and Winston are tank/DPS hybrids, etc. The only heroes that aren't hybrids are Mercy, Reinhardt, arguably Orisa and most of the attack heroes. However, all of the hybrids we have are DPS mixed with something else, I wanna see a character that is a combo of tank and support. I feel like it would be a natural fit, seeing as both tanks and supports are all about protecting teammates and making sure they don't die. Unfortunately I don't have any specific ideas for this hero, I just thought the concept would be interesting. Also, this hero would be the ultimate flex hero

SECOND MECH BASED DPS HERO (based on Hanamura poster girl character)
Alright, so this one is kind of a long one and will take a while to explain. The idea came from 2 separate things that I've noticed. First of all, there seems to be some kind of character shown on a bunch of posters in the Hanmura attack spawn as well as Sombra's room in the Castillo elimination map (the posters translate to "Power Girl", "Hunter X",  "Super Machine 2", and I ain't got no clue what the one in kanji says). Considering that they've hinted at lots of new heroes using posters on maps, it's not impossible that this could be a new hero. Some people say the posters are just of D.Va, but most of the posters clearly look like a different person (they're also Japanese, and it would be weird for them to make Japanese posters for a Korean character). Some people also think they're just recycled concept art for D.Va, but it's not like they couldn't reuse them for a new hero (also, why would they decide to put the poster in a map that came out WAY after D.Va was out?). Second, back a couple months ago when Blizzard was messing around with D.Va's health stats, everyone said that they liked D.Va's rampaging mech playstyle and didn't like that it was removed. Blizzard responded by saying D.Va was never intended to be that type of terrorizing bully type character, but also said that it could give them an idea for a new hero in the future. Considering this Japanese poster girl is clearly mech themed, maybe they could use this character? Maybe she could be some kind of rival to D.Va or something? I imagine she would be a smaller, more versatile mech that's almost like an Iron Man suit or something (like somewhere between D.Va and Pharah), and would be focused purely on doing damage rather than being a tank/DPS hybrid like D.Va

NATURAL MOVEMENT BASED HERO
My favorite thing in games is speedy movement and mobility in general, I always choose my main in multiplayer games by how fast and mobile they are (Fox in Smash, Scout/Soldier in TF2, Ms. Fortune in Skullgirls, etc). So obviously, my main in OW is Lucio. When combining his amped up speed boost and the speed burst when jumping off walls, he becomes the fastest character in the game by far. But more importantly, he's all about amplifying his natural speed, not using an ability that takes him a specific, controlled distance (like Genji dash or Tracer blink). Lucio's speed is more organic and flexible, which makes him more interesting (personally, anyway). However, I don't really enjoy playing Lucio as a support, every time I play him I just want to get into the teamfight directly (which usually just gets me killed. So, I thought it would be interesting to have another character who would have natural movement mechanics like Lucio, but is more of a DPS character who is actually about getting kills. I thought it would be cool if there was a character who had a pseudo-bunnyhopping ability (probably a passive). For those that don't know, bhopping is a technique that started in Quake where by using a combination of jumping and moving in specific directions, you go faster and faster. Obviously this mechanic would have to be simplified for OW, but I feel like the idea could work. I imagine the character would probably need to be a close range character, maybe a shotgun for the primary weapon (though that might be stepping in Reaper's territory)
