2023.05.28 08:04 yuhang8849 Just finished my first Engage Maddening Blind Run without benching any character

Engage is 100% beatable without the need of benching a single unit (if you buy the DLC). And want to share some thoughts about the game.
First, the run is based on these simple rules:
  1. For every map, you can only deploy your lowest internal level characters except Alear.
  2. Every chapter must be done in order of their recommended level, including skirmishes.
  3. You can not have more than 2 of each class. Each unit must be in a class that has their innate proficiency.
  4. Stat boosters must all go to Vander.
Other than these rules, everything else is free game. I did a lot of bond ring RNG abuse, relay trial for master seals, and DLC.
The run was way easier than I expected. Early game was simple, mid game gets harder as time goes on, and while late game peaks in difficulty, it had a really easy end game. Most of the time I spent on the game wasn't even playing it, but rather organizing my inventory. Since units will be switched out and constantly rotating, it takes a while to pick the right emblem for each character. Which is probably the only downside of the run.

Unit Tierlist:

Purely based on impression and I have no evidence to back up any ranking here.
Since you probably already seen these a thousand times already, I'll just list the outliers.
[AleaDivine Dragon]: Will always be available except for every single paralogue and main story, allowing you constant dragon Corrin access, one of the most reliable way to control enemy.
[Alcryst/Tireur d’élite]: Late game performance with Luna Bracelet on was very impressive, able to one round almost everything, as long as Luna proc.
[Timerra/Picket]: Sandstorm is fun. She can just kill an enemy out of no where despite doing 0 damage is the only reason she's that high. Is it good? No. Will she quad and still not proc sandstorm? yes. But, what if she proc sandstorm and crit?
[Kagetsu/SwordMaster]: Because of the class requirement, I kept Kagetsu in Sword Master. Also I thought a 40 speed unit would be pretty important for late game. It wasn't. This is on me.
[Merrin/Wolf Knight]: She didn't perform very well through the run. She was decent at eva tanking and poisoning, but thats about all she did.
[Etie/Sniper]: Helped routing chapter 21 via enemy phasing, which made a very good impression on my mind. But otherwise only useful against enemy fliers.
[Pandreo/Griffon Rider]: Can't really do any damage in High priest, Mage knight & Sage are already taken. Changed him late game to Griffon, but Levin sword is always contested and I have enough, so I gave him flame lance. This is on me.
[Engage+]: Using it means 4 turns of no Corrin for you.
[VandePaladin]: Because of how the run is structured, you will be forced to bench him the moment you can until chapter 15. And then you need to use him after chapter 15.


While the story wasn't bad, it definitely wasn't good. Not to mention everything I cringe when I heard the unit say "Engage". I would have been fine with words like "fusion", but engage was a terrible choice of word.
As for the story, it is very much filled with cliche, but nothing was really unbearably bad.
Chapter 11 shocked me when they took away your tools. My first reaction was "oh cool, so the first 10 chapters were just tutorials and we are finally getting started?" Nope, you immediately get your 10 rewind back in the same chapter alongside two of the most broken emblem in the game. Which I feel is a waste.
Alear dying was also unexpected, and I wished there was more about that, perhaps a chapter dedicated to Alear trying to find her way back to her body or Veyle. But instead she just makes it.
And for the finale, the fact that Sombrom is just a traumatized child, feels pretty realistic. Was hoping for something more grand, but this is fine too.


It's great. It's just wonderful. No tedious three houses base grinding, no abundant amount skills to keep track of, and almost every chapter feels balanced and unique.
Really like the reduced skill slot, too many choices really gives me fatigue, and is the main reason I didn't finish fate. That or the wind chapter in revelation.
That being said, there are some small issues.
Sword Master and Berserker. Berserkers are the weakest enemy in the game, and swordmaster is underwhelming. There's also High Priest, who gets B rank tome for no reason.
The last game bosses are also extremely weak in engage.
I can't believe every single one of my unit can one round Lumera despite the rotation, and Sombrom doesn't even recover his shield after every health bar breaks. You can just straight up kill him in one turn.
And the fact that Sombrom doesn't ignore defense and resistance like every other generic wyrm enemy in the game is also absolutely insane. That on top of how easy you can kill him.


10/10, would play again. In fact, already started another run, this time, same rule but without DLC. Some people I've talked to told me it's probably impossible, which is why I'm going to try to do it.
It can't possibly be that bad, can it?

2023.05.28 08:04 RankifiedAddict Hatred

I hate my mom. She only had me because she wanted to fit in because all of her other sisters had kids. She neglects me. She doesn’t know anything about me and she never tries. I think she wanted a child she could use as her own personal pet that she could train and force to be how she wants me to be. She let her husband abuse my for half my life (both mentally and physically) until he died of COVID and she goes around preaching what a good husband he was. She still talks to my aunt who she knows is a pedophile and touched me. She still talks to her whole family who verbally and physically abused me all my life. She doesn’t respect me at all, out of all the things, this one hurts the most, kinda silly right? Maybe I just want the simple things. Like her actually knocking before barging in my room like I’ve told her to do like 100 times and she always calls me a lunatic which ends up triggering me and sending me to a suicidal spiral. Or if she respects how much I eat and my weight but instead she knows about my eating disorder and she comments about how much I eat and I almost starve myself to death. Idk, I hate her so much and I hate that I still love her. Well I lied earlier, I think I hate religion the most. I despise religion with all my heart. I would be fine with religion. But it’s because of her that I hate it so much, she’s the worst human trash I know of and she’s religious. She does everything she can to make herself look good, but I see through her, that’s why she hates me. I know that she’s a horrible person, and I don’t try to hide it. I know for a fact the only reason she’s religious is so that she looks good to everyone, and because somewhere in her rotten body she feels so shitty for being a shit person. I hate her. All I have is hatred for her.

2023.05.28 08:04 Travelcat67 Why does the murder rate in Midsomer rival a major city?

I love this show so much, but it’s like Cabot Cove in ‘Murder she Wrote’!! How does a small sleepy British country side town with maybe 30,000 residents total have such a high murder rate? Is there something in the tap water? Especially considering most episodes have multiple murders; we are literally talking about the serial killer capital of the world!!
Don’t find yourself in Midsomer after dark! You might get got!!
What episode made you simultaneously say “what?? That’s ridiculous and crazy!!! But I love it!!”

2023.05.28 08:02 lostings [OR] My co-workers won’t stop asking about my boyfriend and it’s only gotten worse.

I’m (20f) a caregiver at a group home and I just started working here barely a month ago. I’ve been doing everything correctly but my co-workers keep on asking about my boyfriend (24m) and it’s gotten to the point where I’m scared my job is in jeopardy.
For context, my boyfriend drives me to and from work and parks outside while I’m working (I work the graveyard shift). He does not feel comfortable going back to my home without me due to some conflict between him and my parents (who we’re staying with until we have enough money to find a place) and the fact that it’s about a 35-40 mile drive one way (70-80 round trip, if he were to go back home it would be around 140-160 miles per day and we don’t have the money to pay for that kind of gas). Also note he’s comfortable staying out in the car and sleeping in it as needed, his car is his treasure. He does not enter or go near the house I’m working in at all and does not come in contact with anything related to the house.
Moving on… it all started when a co-worker commented about a guy parking across the street and sitting in his car, in which I let her know that it was my ride and he was waiting to come pick me up. I didn’t think much of it since it’s just conversation and I didn’t think my boyfriend being parked across the street would be a big deal. She started asking more questions about it, like if I had a DL, my own car, why he was out there waiting for me, ect. I answered all the questions honestly and we moved on.
The next day two other co-workers bring it up and they both tell me, “Don’t bring him inside, it’s not your house, we need to respect people’s privacy and it’s not appropriate”, and they went on for about 5 minutes about it. I know it’s related to another situation regarding another employee who got put in suspension for that exact thing happening (plus some worse stuff happened relating the person’s partner after entering the house but I won’t elaborate on it), but every day that I have worked either Management has notified me or another co-worker, each time getting more aggressive. While having these conversations I also added that it’s a HIPAA Violation to do so and that neither my boyfriend or I are interested in doing anything close to that. Today at work about an hour after my shift started one of my co-workers (not on the schedule today) pulled up to the house, sat in his car for like 5 minutes and then drove off. My boyfriend texted me telling me about this and I feel very uncomfortable being here. Maybe I’m just being paranoid, but I really do feel like people are gossiping about me and it’s going to lead to an unlawful investigation with suspension and potentially getting fired even though I didn’t do anything wrong. I’m thinking of calling HR when I get off work although I’m unsure of whether that’ll actually help. What should I do?

2023.05.28 08:02 welliard FRUSTRATED Please HELP

For context. I used to weigh nearly 300 pounds. 275 pounds to be exact. Today I weight 185 pounds. Though I have a lot more work to do, I’ve done the grunt of the work in the past two and a half years.
I used to always get teased for being fat as fuck. Girls and guys were not nice about it sometimes, but the ones that were I’ll never forget. Being overweight and obese took over my life as I ate food constantly to compensate for negative emotions and feelings and rejection.
Today, I feel confident, and sexy honestly. I’ve hit the gym and eaten really well and the results have paid off. People that knew me before are so much nicer to me now, but people that are just meeting me, it almost feels like they treat me like I’m still fat. Does that make sense?
Friends and girls I’ve dated always have this notion that I get a ton of girls but that is not the reality. I’m funny, and I make people laugh, I’ve always been pretty confident despite always being fat, and now that I’ve lost nearly 100 pounds I’m more confident. I never try to be cocky, or act like a dick, but I have a great personality and my friends and family really love me. So how is it I am as lonely as I am? I try to find something meaningful, without overextending and obsessing over it, but I am getting lonely guys :/
In regards to dating and relationships, I am finding it so hard to put myself in a good position to date. When I was overweight and obese, I was dating often and was hooking up with women way more frequently than I am now. I don’t know why that is. Though I’ve changed my body, I don’t feel as though my personality has changed so much. Maybe I was more off the charts back then, and I’m more self aware and mindful now than I used to be, but at this point I thought I’d be seeing more women show me love and affection. But when I go out with them or talk to them to initiate it, it’s constant rejection. I’ve only asked about three women out that I was considering seriously being with, but I’m not having any luck. I’m getting lonely and I’m starved of affection.
I’d be lying if I said looks weren’t important to me, but the truth is, any nice woman to me is already really pretty for the most part. Just because they’re nice. I don’t care if they’re white, black, Asian, latinX… have money or not, as long as they got their shit together or are working on it, i find them attractive.
Should I be trying to approach and meet more people? I’ve deleted the dating apps because they don’t work for me. Is it because I’m ugly? Or asian? I don’t personally think I’m ugly but I’ve heard many times in my life girls won’t date me because I’m asian. Which sucks but it is what it is. So please give me some advice or insight as to what I can or should do.
Thank you for reading.

I currently have a dedicated server running antistasi with a group of friends and it is a ton of fun. We want to take a short pause this upcoming weekend and do a small MP PVP mission where we go up against each other.
Could someone tell me how I would go about that? (Mission/map and that kinda stuff. Is it the same setup as I did with antistasi?)
Does anyone have any recommendations? It would be like 5v5 ish. Just looking for something small that we can run through a few times in a couple of hours

2023.05.28 08:00 AntisocialDudeQ_Q Loading Screen help

Does anyone know of any apps for PC that allow me to view in game mods specifically Loading Screens without joining the game. I am creating a few loading screens but it is a hassle to have to join, leave and rejoin just to see how it looks or if it is working because my game takes a really long time to load.
So I was wondering if there is something I could use to just showcase it for me instead without having to join the whole time. If that makes sense?
So please help with recommendations if you have any, thanks :)

2023.05.28 08:00 cloudhell I would like to know how I can make a certain function work in a web forum

I'm not a professional developer, but I've already worked with php and other things on the web, but I saw a very interesting function that a user shared in a video game forum that I participate in and I would like to know if there is any site or way to do the same

the forum I participate in is called outerspace and it is made in xenforo, as the site is for videogames there are some events during the year of related companies and they transmit the stream on youtube and twitch

but there was a user who, I don't know how he managed to create a link that, when clicked, would go to a page with the stream of the event on twitch or youtube, but on that page there was a chat and the chat was the posts of the thread of that forum event, if someone sent a message in that thread, the message appeared immediately in the stream chat, so it was possible to follow the event and the messages of the thread, he shares this link in several events

this link he sent was hosted on his personal server, I didn't have time to ask how he did it, does anyone have any ideas on how to do this easily?

sorry my english not my main language

2023.05.28 08:00 KaizenCo What does the path to profitability look like for ASTS?

If everything works out according to plan with the tech, how exactly does ASTS plan to generate revenue and return value to shareholders? Is this company destined for a buyout in the future or does it actually have a pathway to increasing profits year over year for decades to come? In other words, should we be looking to sell ASTS when its share price hits $20 on good news and positive sentiment, or is this a long-term hold for you?

2023.05.28 07:59 SmallSpecialist Is there actually a conflict or is it just me?

Feel like this question sums up my thinking, but I hate that I asked that latter part of it. I'm dealing with what I feel like is conflict at work, and I just don't know what to do about it.
I think the best way to describe my job is to say I'm a government contractor. My organization is separate and independent, but we work for and with different government agencies. These people sit on our boards and committees, and they are even involved in the hiring process. It's a close relationship where they act as our "clients" and, thus, "bosses". Though, I have my own boss within my actual organization, and that's typically who we really on as the final say on things.
My boss has had issues with a few of these so-called clients. It's never amounted to much, but it can absolutely cause tension. It has even caused tension with me because my boss will okay something, I'll do it, but then the clients will get upset and take it out on me. This has only happened with one person in particular, but it has happened twice. They have pretty knee-jerk reactions, so once they take a second to actually talk through whatever it was with us, the issue goes away. But like I said, it's happened twice now, and I feel like things are awkward. They barely acknowledge me at in-person meetings and conferences, and whenever I do try to initiate conversation, it's quick and tense. A little "hi how are you" and then the move on to have greater conversations with my coworkers as I'm standing right there, even with my boss.
Now what brings me to post this is that someone this person works with is now being weird with me. They're doing same things as the first person, but just a few months ago, they were giving me advice. Empathizing with me because my work load is huge right now, bigger than any of my coworkers. Any consideration of that seems to have just gone away, and instead, I feel like they are treating me like a total idiot. Even doing it in public meetings by "amending" something I say, though we had discussed it just an hour before.
I've only been in my role for a year, and I'm fresh out of grad school. These people know that, they were on the panel when I interviewed. I even heard that they wanted to hire me if my organization didn't! But now, I can barely stand to be in the same room as them. I am constantly questioning myself and my interactions with them, and I don't know what to do. I have tried to talk to my coworkers about this, and they say it's nothing. I feel like they only say that because they haven't had any issues with these people, and they don't have nearly as demanding and intense of a workload as I do.
I keep emphasizing the work load bit because I know it's making me feel quite burned out, and I know that is contributing to my self-esteem. Maybe that is manifesting itself in these interpersonal relationships, but it's getting to be unbearable. I was just with these people for four whole days, and it felt like they were avoiding any conversation with me. I sat directly across from one of them, and not once did they look me in the eye. I work directly with them and report to them, and I am criticizing anything I say, do, or send to them. This last trip was so bad that I thought about quitting. I like my job so I don't want to do that, but I am at a loss with what to do, and my coworkers, my boss, have absolutely no guidance for me.
....And this is where I go to Reddit. I hope I can get some advice here. I've thought about setting up individual meetings with them, but it's so intimidating to do when your coworkers don't even think it's an issue. Many thanks in advance for any wise words you all may have to share.
TLDR: I feel a lot of tension with some clients I work closely with, but no one else seems to think it's a big deal and I don't know what to do to stop feeling this way.
Edit: Just remembered that in a committee meeting we had last week, when talking about staff support, they specifically called out my coworker who is my back-up as I am the project lead, and my coworker hasn't even had to do anything as my back-up yet or even engaged with this committee. I was never mentioned when I was right there at the table and actually talking in the meeting.

2023.05.28 07:59 Intrepid-cryptid-208 Still feeling grief since Grandma died in 2019, and now experiencing more deaths

Losing Grandma was like a cursed package deal that came with so many micro losses and long drawn out after effects. Just a few years before she died, Grandma had to sell her beautiful home up north where we would go for big family reunions over the summer long weekend. It was the perfect cozy house. She loved it dearly and had worked extremely hard for it having come from poverty as a child. She was an avid reader with a top notch book collection where I discovered some of my favourite stories including The Hobbit, Heidi, and The Picture of Dorian Gray. Her house overlooked dense woods and a lake. Her yard was a big hill and we would run up and down it to the dock, over the grass, the moss, the flowers. I am romantacizing it. It wasn't perfect, it was in cottage country and could get insufferably loud from all the annoying rowdy people on four wheelers or in the motor boats over the summer holiday. The geese could also be a bit of a nuisance and they wouldn't budge if you tried to shoo them off the yard sometimes. My grandma had a birdfeeder, but she had to take it down cause a bear kept coming by to eat from it and drink the nectar. So, yes, it was definitely not perfect. But it was still one of my favourite places growing up. Losing my grandma's house felt like the loss of a second person. I miss that place dearly and all the good memories. My grandma selling the house was completely reasonable however, as it was not safe for her to be there anymore on her own. Her health issues began to stack up. She got shingles that caused her horrific pain, and then bell's palsy a few months later. After that she began to develop dementia. It was fcking heartbreaking. She went through so much pain within a few short years. When she was sick with dementia, she accidentally took too much of her medication and had to be hospitalized when she was found on the floor with a concussion and hypothermic, ice cold. After the concussion, she developed new overlapping mental illness along with dementia. She had ultra rapid cycling bipolar psychosis, so she would be in extreme emotional anguish, furious and violent, or very sweet and happy throughout the day, while hallucinating all sorts of things and suffering delusions. We think she may have also had pseudobulbar affect, but there was a lot going on and it was hard to tell. But they got her on medication to help soothe the emotional anguish she was suffering. Grandma was happy in the week before her death and giving everyone hugs. She died in 2019. It doesn't feel like thatl ong ago since the pandemic messed time up. I still mourn her and the happy memories of visiting her and seeing my family every summer at her house.
There are a lot of things that have been changed by her passing. I realized that due to my autism and severe social anxiety, I struggle greatly with maintaining family relationships and even though they are on social media I can't even stay in touch with them because of my fear of social media (this is from bullying trauma). It might seem crazy to some people that using social media would be scary, but it truly does overwhelm me and I can't handle all the stimuli and all the people at once. I get scared and have pretty much remained silent. I also have this challenge with texting my family members due to social anxiety. I don't know why. When we saw each other at my grandma's house every summer, that helped me socialize and stay in touch with everyone. That was our precious time to interact and it's gone now and I don't know how to get over this new challenge. I have a hard time with change. I am not good at initiating contact. It was always up to someone else to bring us together to have fun and socialize. I am so ashamed and heartbroken by my failure to remain in touch with my family. I cry so much over this problem and growing rift. I didn't want to become estranged.
Now another family member is dying. He was diagnosed with cancer this winter. This month the doctor gave him his "death sentence" how how long he has to live with his untreatable cancer. He is a loved member of our family, multi-skilled and full of life. He's a performer and has rescued many dogs and a few cats. He's not old and it's like a car crash finding out he's going to die.
There has also been not a death, but a tragedy with a non-bio family member. She relapsed into a drug addiction this year and lost her house. Her child (a sweet little girl who I got to meet and spend time with a few times when we saw each other for Christmas) was taken into custody by social workers. Prior to her drug addiction, this woman was one of the most maternal people . She was great with kids, extremely loving and motherly. She's older than me and when I was a little kid she made up such fun games to play and made me so happy. It absolutely kills me that her drug addiction has won and take over her life. We live in the same town and I have no fcking idea what to even say to her. I feel like there's a glass barrier and I can't speak to her or anything...i don't know what to do.
I have been crying so much this month, everything just hit me and I do not know how to cope with this. Where do I go from here? I appreciate recommendations for any support groups or anything at all that has helped you with this sort of thing, this ongoing complicated grief.

2023.05.28 07:59 SpookiBooogi How do I go on cutting a dog's nails? Groomer advice?

I am taking care of my sister two small dogs, very friendly to everyone and well-trained, but their nails are long. I don't own dogs, but I know that it's not good for them to have long nails. My sister comes back Monday, I have never cut a dogs nails before but it looks kinda easy, i never been to a groomer though.
How does that even work? I think I know my sisters dogs, but in an environment like that, I have no clue how they would react so I don't know how that even would go. Is there an expectation for the dog to sit still the whole time?

2023.05.28 07:58 bamahusker82 Good news

I have been a part of this community for a while now. It has helped me to know that I am not alone. I’ve been with my wife for 38 years. Having a place to go where people know the exact feelings that I’m having is very comforting. I’ve discussed some of the experiences that others have with my wife and emailed her at least a dozen posts that hit the ail right in the head. Although she complained about it at first I believe it’s helped the physical intimacy past of my marriage. So I’d like to thank the group and its moderators for keeping it going.
With all of the bad news stories on here I thought it’d be refreshing to share about the improvements that have happened in my household. After years of living with a DB a positive changed started about 6 months ago. The year prior I had kind of moved to a few hours away to Florida to care for my 50 year old baby sister who got a terminal cancer diagnosis. When she told me I said that I walk hand in hand with her until the end. With no room in her house for me I bought a camper and parked it beside her house. My wife would come down 2-3 x’s a month and stay a few days before leaving again. It was a year of stress, exhaustion, joy and tears. As is normal for me I wanted to have some sexy time when my wife would come down and as normal it rarely happened and was never enthusiastically received. During the last 4-6 weeks down there I saw a change. She stayed with me the whole time towards the end. During this time I felt a softening of her heart. Maybe it was being with my sister watching her die or maybe I changed at the same time? So after I got back home there seemed to be an attitude of acceptance coming from my wife. Not a lot mind you but some. I talked with her more about our failing sex life. The rejection that I have grown used to was not so glaringly obvious. She actually initiated a few times and shocked the hell out of me. Once I woke up to her going down on me. That hasn’t happened in at least 20 years. Fast forward 5 months, we had had sex 3-4 x’s a week then it slowed down. Last week we discussed an upcoming cruise that we are taking our granddaughter on. I know that we won’t be having any sex for at least 12 days. I told her about how I’d gotten used to so much happy time that I’d be missing it during the vacation and asked her if we could fill my love tank up before we left. She looked at me pausing, I was looking at her with a wink wink expression, then she replied something like “yes let’s do that and let’s start now” and we did. For the past 7 days I have had a blast. It feels like the clock was turned back 25 years. We don’t leave for another 4 days so I plan to make the most of it.
We have not gotten along so well in many years. It has been so much fun. Not only the sex but our entire existence seems to have drastically improved. We are both happier and more cooperative. We even sat down and played cards tonight laughing it up. That’s all for now. I don’t plan to be on Reddit much for at least 4 days.
