2023.06.09 10:36 Marmi_ The Bologna Concert, venue selection
I have a question about the Bologna concert in Arena Puccini. Why do you think they chose to play in such a small venue as this open-air cinema, which sadly was not even full? Surely, it is not really worthy for them in financial terms. I am not good at estimates; can anyone say how many people were there? My romantic guess is that they wanted to practice as a group and jam in a cozy small place in front of European fans, but in this case they would play more songs I guess..

2023.06.09 10:27 aharmlesslittlefleaa The Party’s Over
Ok hear me out. This episode hurts me in a such a weird way. I’m not a Dean fan at alllll. Ultimately, Dean and Rory’s relationship was going to end, they were doomed to fail. But there’s something in me that hurts for Dean a little in this episode. He was wrong for cheating on Lindsay with Rory, obviously. I just feel so sad that he got married at what, 19? Then ruined his marriage for Rory, who, in this episode treated him kind of like garbage. She walked out with a big group of rich dudes and he must have felt so small. And then, I mean, she didn’t seem to give much of a shit when he left? Like they’d grown apart and this episode was meant to show that, I wish it had just been done in less of a crap on Dean kind of way haha.

2023.06.09 10:24 backlikeclap Trip report from my Sedro-Woolley - Darrington - Arlington bikepacking ride
Day one strava link
. Day two strava link
Starting in Ballard at 7:30am Wednesday I took the Burke to Bothell and then rode a few different bike trails North until getting on the road with car traffic at the Bothell-Everett Highway. I love Seattle's bike trail network! The highlight here was the North Creek trail which is a mix of gravel and paved, taking me through a bunch of really pretty wetlands.
Bothell-Everett Highway was a bit of a slog. It's about 7 miles of riding with cars on a bike lane that theoretically exists, but often disappears into right hand turn lanes. I kept my head on a swivel and didn't have any close calls. From there I took a right at 132 St (another slog, but a shorter one) before turning on to Seattle Hill Road. This road is an absolute delight heading North, as it's almost continual downhill with a fantastic view of Snohomish Valleys and the surrounding mountains as you descend into the valley farmland. From there I did more road riding on roads with no bike lane or shoulder, passed Harvey Airfield, crossed over the Snohomish River, and stopped in Snohomish for a snack and water refill in the shade.
From Snohomish I took the Centennial Trail all the way through Arlington (thank you 7-Eleven for more snacks) and Bryant. Fantastic trail, shaded and wide. Once I hit Bryant, google maps told me to get on Highway 9 but I saw Centennial Trail actually continued for a few miles, so I stayed on the trail all the way to Nakashima Heritage Barn. Read some plaques and then hopped on to Highway 9. I was able to follow Highway 9 across the Skagit River and into Sedro-Woolley (more snacks).
I headed out on the Cascade Trail from Sedro-Woolley. It's almost entirely gravel though there were some paved sections. I was riding on 38mm semi slick tires and had no issues with the gravel, except one section that looks like it flooded routinely. For that section I hopped off my bike and walked for less than a quarter mile. Though Google said I could take the Cascade Trail all the way to Concrete I found it abruptly ended about 3 miles from Concrete at a small pond with a bench for looking at ducks. Fortunately Highway 20 was an easy ride with plenty of shoulder (and rumble strips on the shoulder, which made me a little bit less concerned about cars merging into me).
Stopped for dinner at Cascade Burgers across the street from the old Portland Cement Company silos just West of Concrete. The restaurant was staffed by frightenly competent high schoolers who were nice enough to bag my fries to go while I had a burger and vanilla milk shake for dinner. I had planned to camp near Concrete that night but I had almost 3 hours of daylight left so I continued on Highway 20 until reaching Rockport, from there I headed South on 530. Note that one section of Highway 20 was under construction with no flaggers, so I ended up riding in the direction of oncoming traffic (on the shoulder). I was passed by two cars on this short section but it was over in a minute or so.
I really should have stopped for the night before hitting Darrington as I was rapidly running out of daylight, but there wasn't much traffic on the road so I decided to continue through Dusk. Grabbed a beer as a reward from the Shell in Darrington and then hurried onto Whitehorse Trail. This trail is entirely gravel. A bit more technical and overgrown than Cascade Trail, but still doable with my tires. Note that Google maps seems to indicate the trail is partially paved which it was not. Also note that there is a sign marking the trail closed due to landslides right when it hits the North Fork Stillaguamish River. I was able to continue using the trail with no issue.
I set up camp at the Darrington Bluegrass Music Park. It's an amazing space with a great view of the still snow covered slopes of Whitehorse Mountain. I'd love to return for a concert.
I wasn't sure of the legality of camping there so I made sure to camp away from any buildings (though I was able to find a working electrical outlet to charge all of my devices and a working sink behind the main building). There wasn't any rain forcasted so I cowboy camped for the night.
In the morning I continued West on the Whitehorse trail. I started seeing signs saying that trail use wasn't permitted in certain areas so I left the trail for Arlington-Darrington Road and took that to Oso. I had planned on a big breakfast at the Oso General Store but it turns out it was a 6x6 room with a very limited food selection and a mean host. I still got a coffee and some fritos for breakfast, but I feel like if I had waited a little longer I would have found a place selling some sort of greasy breakfast sandwich which is what I really wanted.
One bit of weirdness on the trail was when I attempted to leave it at Trafton Trailhead Park. I was still using the Google suggested route but that took me through private property. I just hoofed it and hopefully I didn't bother anyone, but I wouldn't suggest doing this if you're with a group. From Arlington I just did a reverse of my journey North. The only issue I had was leaving the Snohomish Valley for Seattle Hill Road - it's an endless series of climbs with the first one being the hardest. I didn't set any speed records climbing it but at least I didn't have to walk my bike.
I did have one car turn into my bike lane without looking on the Bothell-Everett Highway, but I was able to brake in time to avoid being hit.
Arrived back home in Ballard around 5pm Thursday. Total distance over two days, just over 225 miles, with my first day being the most strenuous at 140 miles.
Final Notes: this is a very beginner friendly ride and you'll never be more than a few miles from food options on the entire route. It is ridiculously pretty. The stretch between North Bothell and Snohomish is the most daunting as you share the road with traffic the entire way. The Cascade Trail had plenty of open areas along the way that were large enough to set up two or even three tents for camping. The only really solid camping spot on Whitehorse Trail is the Darrington Bluegrass Music Park.

2023.06.09 10:14 jesusislord77777 Told by pastor to question my salvation
So my wife and i recently started going to a new church. I had set up a meeting with a pastor thinking it was about joining a small group. I get there and he proceeds to tell me his testimony for about 45 minutes about how he thought he was a Christian but realized he still had sin in his life, then he made Jesus his lord “for reals this time” and since then he…hasn’t sinned i guess?
I told him my story of how I came to faith later in life and have a history of anxiety depression and drug addiction. He told me that when we are saved we become a “new creation” and these “patterns of sin” shouldnt be happening in a real believers life once we are saved, even though I have confessed and repented. According to him, a relapse is a good reason to question my salvation. He told me that i should have no assurance of my salvation and that i should go through some book with him to find out if im actually saved.
This theology raised major red flags and reeked of self righteousness and elevating certain sins over others. He singled out sexual sin and drugs and alcohol as those that shouldn’t be in my life if im actually a new creation.
I felt condemned and discouraged leaving that meeting. Has anyone ever run into this sort of horrible exigesis of the bible that conveniently leaves out Pauls struggle with sin, 1 john and other passages that show that Christians still sin? I was blown away…apparently all the leaders of the church feel this way. He told me that I wouldnt be able to join a fellowship group until I go through this book with him

2023.06.09 10:14 communist-crapshoot The Claires *are* social democrats *not* secret communists and seizing the harbor was not in itself a revolutionary act. It's long past time fans stop lying to themselves and start engaging with the Marxist "ruthless criticism of all that exists" at the core of the game, as was always intended.
Let me preface this lecture by stating that I *am* a communist and have been for over a decade and that before I can get into what I think the Claires are supposed to represent I need to address why Kurvitz & Co. chose a videogame as the preferred medium for their metafiction. The reason Disco Elysium was made the way it was wasn't simply to entertain people with the funny antics of an alcoholic, superstar, hobo cop or to strive towards critical acclaim so the game would sell better. It wasn't even a game made by communists for communists (I mean it was made by communists it's just not preaching to the choir as much as some might think). In fact it's quite the opposite. The story was injected with nihilistic humor and offered up to the general public in the form of a video game to sugar the pill so to speak. That's because Disco Elysium is, at its core, a highly controversial political treatise and social critique "disguised" as a video game. This was so as to get as many people as possible to actually engage with its core messages instead of reflexively rejecting or ignoring them the way they would've if those messages had been presented in the format of non-fiction literature. To put it bluntly the main message of the game is how self delusion reinforces the very things it seeks to escape whether those be personal problems like loneliness or societal ones like the anxiety inducing political limbo of Revachol/the real world. Included in the delusions of a political nature Kurvitz wanted people to confront were many held by the bulk of the contemporary left. Sadly, judging by what I often see in this sub, the results of this novel approach at polemics has been mixed.
I have to admit it's disheartening to see how many fans of the game only engaged with that social and political criticism to the extent that it was leveled at their political enemies, especially when the "authorial intent" was to confront players who might delude themselves about the future implications, present realities and/or history of their own real life politics, whatever they may be. In some cases this ignorance is forgivable; it's easy to miss subtext in a game that's so text based that it has a habit of spelling things out for you and tbf many of the allusions to real life figures, events and ideas are subtle and without a solid grasp of 20th century European history and theoretical Marxism most of the satirical references will go over a typical player's head. What's not forgivable is how many people in this sub are in denial of or otherwise consciously rationalize the criticisms of their own side presented by the writers of DE. I'll get around to how centrists and right-libertarians are guilty of this in future posts but for right now I want to address "my comrades" because, frankly, some of you scare me with your naiveté, hyper-partisanship and blithe hand waving of corruption and needless violence.
Now there are two kinds of leftists I often see who want to view Evrart as a crypto-communist figure and despite being polar opposites in most respects they have two things in common: they're both childishly naive and they're both in denial about the realities of how vicious social democracy can be in practice. The first leftist is a social democrat who thinks that because Evrart is a machiavellian strongman figure that he must be an expy of Stalin and/or Mao (who in their minds are genuine representatives of communism) because "never, ever would a real social democrat do such things, after all we're unassuming trade unionists who want nothing more than to work things out democratically, through the existing system!" The second leftist is a communist who thinks that because Evrart is a machiavellian strongman figure that he must be an expy of Stalin and/or Mao (who in their minds are genuine representatives of communism) because "never, ever would a real social democrat do such things, after all they're unassuming trade unionists who want nothing more than to work things out democratically, through the existing system!"
The truth of course is that prejudices aside Evrart is a social democrat AND a tyrannical strongman. As for his plan to seize the harbor, while it's certainly threatening to Wild Pines' bottom line, the RCM's authority and the union's enemies in Martinaise, it does not in any way pose a genuine revolutionary threat to the capitalist system as a whole and, as weird as it may sound, is still reliant on working within the existing system. After all the union didn't seize the means of production in an armed rebellion against the capitalist state so much as Wild Pines legally handed over some of its corporate property to the union to avoid the bad PR of the merc tribunal which in the end was only tangentially related to the strike. By the end of HBD's investigation all that has changed for the (surviving) workers of Martinaise Harbour Terminal B is their employer. They went from being the unionized employees of the Wild Pines Group under which they had to smuggle drugs in secret to get by to becoming members of a de jure workers' co-operative under the Claires' control where they can now smuggle drugs more openly. That's it. Is that better for them? Maybe, probably, but even so they're still reliant on a global system based on commodity production and exchange and the selling of their labor power (and hardcore drugs) for money, they've just cut out a few middlemen so to speak. Once the strike is officially declared over La Puta Madre's henchmen, not the soldiers of the Coalition, are going to be the union's most immediate threat. Wild Pines itself probably isn't even that hurt by Evrart's plan as the value of what was lost in revenue and real estate can be mitigated by the amount the company will save from no longer having 2,000 + employees on its payroll every quarter.
Oh and to those pragmatists who think Evrart is just a well intentioned man willing to step up and get his hands dirty for the sake of his fellow workers because no one else would or as Call Me Mañana puts it "The old man is corrupt for our benefit" this next part is for you. We know from interviews that Evrart was partially inspired by the character of Frank Sobotka from the second season of the HBO hit TV series The Wire. That said Evrart is in many ways a sort of anti-Sobotka insofar as he's not just reluctantly working with mafiosos; he *is* a mafioso. If you haven't already seen The Wire you need to stop reading this and go watch it to not only understand my next point but because it's literally the best TV show ever made. For those who have seen The Wire I'm 100% certain you'll agree with me that neither of the two hypothetical leftists from earlier could seriously claim that Sobotka was a secret communist or anything other than a reformist labor leader even though he's guilty of most of the same things that supposedly make crypto-commies of the Claires. I also don't think anyone who's seen the show would strongly hate Frank for getting involved in those criminal dealings the way they would the Claires even if some might still think both are wrong for having done so. Most importantly I don't think anyone who's seen all of season two of The Wire and played Disco Elysium to completion would ever claim that the Claires cared more about the Martinaise dockers than the Sobotka family did the stevedores of Locust Point, Baltimore. So what explains the gulf between the two unionistas (besides murder)? Why was it less bad when Frank Sobotka engaged in labor racketeering than when Evrart and Edgar did it? It's simple really, Frank Sobotka demonstrated more authentic labor solidarity, internal conflict, selflessness and above all self awareness than the Claire brothers ever did.
So to summarize: the Claires are written as a counter to those players who have what Lenin called trade union consciousness (meaning social democrats, progressives and center-left, reform minded liberals) who think that the problems of capitalism can be solved simply by increasing the number of trade unions, by legally incorporating more worker co-ops, by expanding strike funds, etc., in a word, reformism. Additionally DE's writers, who're communists, want to knock reformists off their high horses so as to get them to stop lying to themselves and recognize that there is corruption, hypocrisy, violence and even a small presence of incipient fascism in many real life unions, both past and present, and that existing reformist movements, organizations, etc. are just as susceptible to being hijacked by populist demagogues as revolutionary ones are/have been and moreover that they're not always the politically correct, morally unimpeachable, nonviolent alternatives to revolution that they present themselves as. In the end class conflict and its resulting violence goes on whether anyone wants it to or not. It can be and often is a totally subconscious process driven by need at both the individual and group levels. That said the longer class conflict goes on without being consciously directed towards the abolishment of the socioeconomic system whose inherent contradictions bring it into being in the first place, the more chaotic it will become until the point where the mutual ruin of the competing classes is all but guaranteed as a result.

CONCERNED CITIZENS IN BC PUBLISH YEAR-LONG INVESTIGATION INTO THE LOCAL "FREEDOM MOVEMENT": MEETS HATE GROUP CRITERIA CONCERNED CITIZENS IN BC PUBLISH YEAR-LONG INVESTIGATION INTO THE LOCAL "FREEDOM MOVEMENT": MEETS HATE GROUP CRITERIA
JUNE 8, 2023
Vancouver Island — A group of concerned citizens and independent researchers joined forces to report on the rise of hate on Vancouver Island and coastal British Columbia. After a year-long investigation from 2022 to 2023, the group has determined that the self-declared Vancouver Island "Freedom Movement" meets the criteria for a hate movement, as outlined by researchers and experts such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League.
Fearing for their safety, the group has chosen to publish anonymously. This report should serve as a warning sign to all elected leaders, community members, and people in positions of power: there is a movement brewing with insidious motives. This report merely touches on a small fraction of the hateful activities and organizing on Vancouver Island.
Hate must never be accepted in our communities. We must be willing to name it and counter it, otherwise we are doomed to repeat history.

2023.06.09 10:11 Snoo_85459 Diablo 4: A Dismal Downgrade
Blizzard has delivered a crushing disappointment with Diablo 4, a catastrophic fumble in the cherished franchise that has left me grappling to adequately express my profound discontent. And just for clarity, I am neither a die-hard Blizzard enthusiast nor a veteran of the Diablo series – my prior experience consists solely of Diablo 2.
The game seems to be in the throes of an identity crisis. It’s a genre-shifting mishmash, a horrifying Frankenstein's monster of an ARPG, MMO, and a Diablo-skinned 'looter shooter'. This bizarre, directionless amalgamation teeters on the precipice of failure in each genre it attempts to embody.
As an ARPG, it has action aplenty, but role-playing is woefully absent. There are no stats to tinker with, only a lackluster spread of skills and passives, with no sense of progression as everything tediously scales to your level. As an MMO, its offerings are pitiful. In-game chat functionality is rudimentary at best, trading and group finder features are conspicuously missing, and all we're left with is a mind-numbing carousel of repetitive side quests and events.
It’s clear that the game's fundamental identity is lost in the woods, with no map to guide it home. One can't help but wonder if the creators themselves knew what they were trying to construct from the outset.
The 'online-only' requirement and 'game as a service' model is a blatant nod to shareholders and executives at the expense of the gaming community. This strategy, fueled by corporate greed, has served only to hamstring the game's longevity. Congratulations, you've purchased a limited-time window to play and enjoy this game before it's unceremoniously yanked offline.
I harken back to the days when I could install Diablo 2 from a CD and play it offline, without the need for a constant internet connection. The acceptance of this new behavior of selling temporary access is a grim indictment of the current state of gaming.
In terms of gameplay, Diablo 4 is a systemic disaster. A whirlwind 20-hour campaign, spread over three sessions on world tier 2, was marked by utter monotony. I was either sprinting past or obliterating enemies in my path with a yawn, and bosses melted away like butter on a hot skillet. Then, without warning, the game performed a full-tilt pivot at level 40. The once trivial elite enemies became arduous, and bosses transformed into a marathon of evading projectiles and painstakingly whittling down health bars.
Your enjoyment of the game becomes a gamble, dictated by the capricious hand of luck. The scale can tip either way – finding the right gear can make the game ridiculously easy, while the absence of it can transform the game into a frustrating slog. Because the game scales enemies to your level, there's no 'lower level' area to fall back on if you're struggling, or 'higher level' area to push into if you're finding it too easy.
Your progression is essentially held hostage by the items you possess and their modifiers. However, these are contingent on the fickleness of RNG, creating a system that is fundamentally flawed. You're expected to incessantly grind, all the while gambling with your time for the possibility of a better item or an appropriate modifier.
This isn’t even scratching the surface of the steaming pile that is Diablo 4. A cursory look at the skill tree reveals a depressing lack of depth in character progression. What was once an exciting element of skill point allocation in Diablo 2 has now been relegated to randomly rolled aspects on randomly dropped legendary items. And to add insult to injury, the game caps the points you can put into a skill, only allowing items to exceed this limit. This not only encourages further grinding and re-rolling but also begs the question – why even include a skill tree in the game?
As for the story, it is so underwhelming that skipping the cutscenes becomes a mercy, saving you from the painful dialogue and lifeless interactions. The static world map, devoid of any true exploration value, is a massive letdown. The game feels more like a tour guide, showing you where everything is, thus erasing any sense of discovery and replayability.
In essence, Diablo 4 is a spectacular failure, an unfortunate soul lost between genres, trying and failing miserably to establish a clear identity. It robs us of any real character progression, leaving us at the mercy of a broken RNG system. It delivers a story so uninspiring and a world so static that it makes you long for the days of Diablo 2.
I honestly believe that a $10 Diablo-themed slot machine would've offered more entertainment, or a B-rated Diablo movie would've been more captivating. Instead, I parted with $110 AUD for this haphazard, uninspiring mess of a game. And believe me, it's every bit as dreadful as it sounds.

2023.06.09 10:07 red_nights_ USJ Dilemma
I'll be visiting USJ next week with a friend, but the only "Express" tickets available were for the Super Nintendo World VIP Tour.
Unfortunately, there was only one ticket available for different time slots, so I ended up booking both just in case.
Contacted USJ and asked them whether there would be any way for us to be on the same tour, but they said that since these tours are really small, there's nothing they can do.
Okay, fair point. But since I didn't really care for the "tour" aspect in the first place, I asked this person whether we could just enter Super Nintendo World together and get the Express Tickets, just as I paid for, because that shouldn't be such a big deal right? She replies that that's not really how they do things in Japan, so tough luck.
Any advice on what I can do here? Thanks so much!

2023.06.09 10:05 HankCantTank Very Niche Juri (Go Ohsatsu) World Tour Modern Style Complaint
super casual player here. Finally finished the base world tour and i learned world tour gave some really bad muscle memory that could be a very easy fix on capcoms side...
In world tour, the SP button is Go Ohsatsu (QCF+HK) For Juri, there is an SP button for Ankensatsu (QCF+MK) and Saihasho (QCF+LK)
small thing but now my muscle memory translates SP for Go Ohsatsu instead of Saihosho so this will take awhile to learn.
Now I know what some of you classic players are thinking, just learn to QCF EZ but...
To make things more confusing to OD Ankensatsu/Saihasho you press the auto button (can be done with SP or actual QCF command), to OD Go Ohsatsu you need to press the MEDIUM button with QCF+Heavy.
TLDR wished world tour unique skill was Saihasho and wished Ohsatsu could OD with the auto button

2023.06.09 10:02 Next_Pattern2361 I have been feeling stuck with things.
So i (18f) is in a situationship with a boy (18m) and things haven’t been that great. I have been feeling as if we are going around in circles and not actually reaching anywhere. I feel extremely suffocated in this situation. Not that he is toxic but he has been acting very immature lately. He has been posting stories which are indirectly attacking me and being mad over small things.
He doesn’t give two shits about my mental health. I understand he cant console people but he straight up disregards my feelings. I literally don’t know why am i keeping up with this shit but I am. We do have the same friend group so i am probably scared of all the judgements i’ll get after i break things off. My problem is he expects me to act as his girlfriend all the fucking time but wont give in when i want him to do the same. And why should i act like his girlfriend we were never in a relationship. I have been feeling like a POS lately with everything around me.
My friends have started noticing that i am no longer extremely happy or active. I dont jump around like a baby anymore, i am rather serious and frustrated. He has been getting on my nerves a little too much. I have tried talking but there’s barely anything to talk about anymore. I am tired of him cribbing about how i dont text him much when in reality i get “lmao”, “damn”, “lol” from his side even in real life.
I dont why i am writing this, maybe i am just ranting. Also maybe you can give your opinions if you want.

What You Get:
Black Friday Bootcamp
This is a short course I created for one of my e-commerce coaching groups. It outlines the high level strategy you need to use to MAXIMIZE sales for BFCM.
I go over everything from how to map out your promo calendar… what emails to send when… exactly when you should START and FINISH your promo(s)… and, most importantly…
… how to STAND OUT and grab attention in an overcrowded inbox, so you can break every sales record.
Once you watch this mini-course, you’re going to be pumping out high-converting BFCM campaigns in no time!
Make It Rain Monthly
BFCM/Q4 Planning Call
This is a special “members-only” coaching call I recorded with a handful of my top students to help them prepare their clients’ brands for BFCM success.
I even critique (and edit) a few of my students’ BFCM emails during this call.
You can look over my shoulder and see how I think about constructing these email campaigns and sequences – super valuable!
Make It Rain Monthly Issue #8
The Black Friday / Cyber MondayMEGA Issue Part 1
- My “A-Z” roadmap for creating highly profitable Cyber Week email marketing campaigns.
- The FIRST email you should send in the month of November, to increase the sales you make from every email you send for the next six weeks (I actually wrote this email for you. You can swipe it verbatim. Just swap in some small details about your business, hit send, and watch the sales start rolling in.)
- How to map out a three-month promotional calendar in less than 60 minutes. (Plus, how to come up with the topics to send, on which days, to the right subscribers.)
- What to do (instead of just giving a discount or giving a bonus) that’ll incite a buying frenzy, generate word of mouth buzz, create raving fans, AND could possibly lead to record-breaking sales.
- A breakdown of a collection of BFCM emails, including some from a sequence that brought in six-figures in one week flat.
Make It Rain Monthly Issue #9
The Black Friday / Cyber MondayMEGA Issue Part 2
- The “Magic Box” Method I used to free up 25 hours of creative time on my calendar, so I could get more work done in less time, with less stress… and more time to myself.
- The biggest mistake I made as I began growing my team… and how I fixed it so everyone could perform at a higher, more autonomous level.
- How to finally get clear on what you want in life… and how to go get it.
- Why trying to be a ‘cool boss’ might hurt your team more than help it.
- One psychological insight that’ll make selling to ‘people with money’ 10x easier. This works especially well if you’re selling a high-end product/high-ticket service.
- One software that can cut your weekly call volume down by 70% (or more).
- The “AC” email promotion that’ll send your Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales through the roof.
- How to scoop up TONS of sales from people who didn’t buy from your BF/CM campaign.
- Why giving a discount might actually HURT your sales and turn off a large percentage of your customers.
- When to use a discount vs other types of offers in your emails (they both work and can both be used strategically… but you’ve gotta do this right.)
- How to instantly induce an “I’ve gotta spend money with this brand” feeling in your customers… even if they weren’t planning on buying anything five minutes before seeing your email.
- A breakdown of a six-figure BF/CM email campaign (meaning: we actually ran this for one of my e-commerce clients and generated six-figures in sales with it).
- A two-word subject line you can use on Black Friday to stick out like a sore thumb and get your subscribers’ attention… even when everyone else is screaming about their sales.
- The one type of campaign you should run if you feel like offering discounts ‘cheapens’ your brand.
- How to adapt this campaign for OTHER holidays throughout the year (like Mother’s Day & Father’s Day). I even riffed off a quick email hook you can keep in your back pocket until spring.
Make It Rain Monthly Issue #20
The Black Friday / Cyber Monday2021 Gameplan
- The SMS Sign Up Sequence that helped us grow an SMS list by 1,000+ subscribers while generating $10,000+ in sales.
- How to make a TON of sales on Thanksgiving… without pissing off everyone on your list. (In fact, people will be giddy with anticipation if you do this promo right.)
- A psychological trigger you can use in your copy that makes your customers go crazy for your products.
- Why BFCM21 is going to look very different than years past… and the changes you should make to your strategy to stand out in the inbox (and make a ton of sales).
- How the smartest marketers and brand owners are adapting to iOS14 and iOS15 (and the big shift you need to make to thrive).
- Will SMS marketing replace or kill email? My surprising answer on page 3.
- How to dramatically increase your EHR (effective hourly rate)… so you can increase profits while working less.
- Insights from an SMS campaign I ran back in 2017 that worked incredibly well… and got people asking us to send them MORE texts (it’s a cool approach you can adapt for your own brand).
- How to write headlines and subject lines that trigger INSTANT curiosity… that suck your prospects in and DEMAND attention. (Try this with your landing pages and advertorial pages and watch your click-thrus SKYROCKET)
- The #1 copy mistake I see most copywriters and brand owners make with ALL of their emails, landing pages, ads, video scripts, and more.
- Fix this one thing and you’ll be amazed at how much better your copy reads and converts.
- How to get your customers to ‘think past the sale’ and get emotionally attached to your product… so they feel compelled to buy. (Sneaky… but powerful. And yes, totally ethical.)

- How to use email to ‘scoop up’ buckets of new buyers… even the people who DON’T buy from you.
- Are you scared of emailing too often? Check out the tip on page 22 that’ll reduce your complaints and increase your sales.
- The four core campaigns EVERY brand should be running on a monthly basis… even if you’re not in e-com. (I use this with my own list and it works incredibly well.)
Holiday Sale Super Sequence
Want to scoop up even MORE sales during the holidays (without the hassle of figuring out your promo calendar)?
This Holiday Sale Super Sequence is based on campaigns I still run for my agency clients that generate anywhere between $30-$50K — without fail.
Comes with SIX email templates, a quick-start implementation video and super secret bonus.
So if you want to generate massive sales easily every time there’s a holiday… then this training is going to help you make that happen.
This sequence is PERFECT for BFCM… but you can even modify it to run other holiday sales throughout the year.

It seems like every post they write gets tons of comments, attracts their exact
customers, who happily try their product, shop at their store, or talk to their sales team.
Some of these marketers even write recap posts outlining six or seven figures of revenue attributable to leads from the blog.
blogs aren’t anywhere close to this.
For most marketers, the blog is a “placeholder”: it exists because they think they should have one, but it only brings in a trickle of traffic, very little comments, and fewer customers.
They end up spending most of their time in other channels, and often begin to resent the need to “publish regularly” (as we’ll show below, that’s not necessary).
For these marketers, content marketing is an expense
— but perhaps more toxic, it’s a mental burden.
If you’re blogging for yourself (solopreneur, small agency owners, etc.), you begin to question whether it’s worth it and what you’re doing wrong.
If you’re doing content marketing inside of a company (as a consultant or an employee), you’re well aware that it takes time and money to run the blog, hire writers and pay developers. You may be working hard at it, but the results aren’t coming and meanwhile the CMO and CEO are questioning the ROI of your efforts.
If they pressed you, you’re not even confident you could defend the ROI.
Or, if you’re getting traffic, it’s often not the right
kind of traffic: you’re attracting the wrong audience or you’re not seeing any conversions coming from it.
So what are successful bloggers and content-focused companies doing that others are not? What do the marketers inside those companies know that everyone else is struggling to find?
The key is systems
Getting a steady stream of ideal
, ready-to-purchase customers requires a system:
- A system for writing content that attracts the right traffic
- A system for turning that traffic into leads
- A system for diverting some of that traffic directly to a store or pricing page
- A system for growth
- A system for turning email subscribers into customers
We didn’t always have systems for attracting the a steady stream of target customers to a blog.
It took Benji years
of trial and error, reading, and building relationships with experienced marketers to learn systems for what worked.
Once he found that though, he first grew Vistage’s blog from 1,000 to 20,000 uniques a month in one year.
He didn’t just get any old traffic either, the blog was able to attract CEOs from companies with $5M or more in revenue, and convert them to members of CEO peer groups (Vistage’s “product”) all over the country while lowering the cost per lead by 600%.
Then, Benji did this again at ThinkApps, an app development company.
When he started as Head of Marketing, ThinkApps had no blog. Plus it was in a technical niche — he had to write about building great web, mobile and wearable products, and attract product managers, CTOs, and CEOs from fast growth and enterprise companies.
By implementing proven systems
to attract the right audience (startup CEOs, product managers, and developers looking to build an app), he was able to grow their blog from 0 to 12,000 organic visitors in 6 months, and 0 to 35,000 unique visitors in 6 months.
Introducing the Customers from Content System
While we’ve been busy doing everything you’ve just read above, we’ve been testing dozens of content types, promotion techniques and conversion tactics, and we’ve distilled it down to a 6 part system
for getting a steady stream of customers through content.
We call it the Customers from Content System and we’ve developed a complete online video course to teach it to you.
2023.06.09 09:48 sorealbam Bad coach experience - franchise edition
I'd like to hear what you have to say about this topic, if you had similar experiences and how you dealt with them. Let me break down the situation.
A new gym opened in the town I live in, big franchise name. I was excited since I just moved back into town and wanted a gym that has good competition training, a motivated coach and a system that's known to create world champions and high level competitors and from talking to the coach via IG it seemed to be just that.
I waited months for the gym to open and after a few hiccups it finally did. The coach seemed competent and excited to be here and the first few sessions were fine. After a while he started to become more negligent, playing with his daughter during class (his gym, his rules I guess?), having almost hour long monologues, very seldomly rolling with us. Mind you "us" means 2-3 people at that point. People were not coming in by the masses despite the big brand name.
One of the students asked if he could let us know when his child is gonna be in class with him. And he refused and took it so personally he basically started ignoring the student and treating her like she was some super villain. More weeks passed and here and there a class was just cancelled, or he assumed no one was coming. Sometimes it was just me showing up at 6 am for training and he tought I wasn't coming because I didn't text him the day before which I thought was weird.
After a while more people joined and he tried to make a good impression on them by being friendly, roling with them and giving proper training. Once they signed up the quality started declining. He was often times on the phone for 3/4 of the class, stopped rolling with us almost completely and had us repeat drills for almost all sessions of the day, not specific sparring or anything, just the movement. And after that free rolling. There was no concept or anything. Sometimes he'd just say "today you are just stretching", Like, what did I come here for? Are you a yoga instructor? Or "today only sparring". And it seemed like he was just too bored to coach.
Now here is where it gets interesting one day he just left. We had keys to the gym so we could enter as we pleased since we were only a small group of people at the gym and it was a very familiar setting. I got there after a small vacation and asked the others where the coach is and they didn't know either. Is it normal that a coach just leaves and doesn't give you a task for the time he is away? I mean there were two people in charge of opening and closing the gym but they didn't get any input as to what the plan is for the time away. So what we did is try to work on a few techniques and work them into concepts, which was a big plus for us and especially the beginners.
We talked about the situation among ourselves and why our coach just left without proper input or explaining what's going on and we felt very confused and abandoned, me especially because I was preparing for one of the biggest tournaments so far.
After a week or so our coach came back and said "today only rolling". No "hey sorry for just leaving", "how was the week, what did you do?" Nothing, like the whole situation never happened. Through Instagram we saw he was taking care of his other school abroad. I know it's just a week, but in school if the teacher is missing for only a day, the substitute gets stuff to do for the class right.
Since I knew one guy in training was heavily injured and the other one rather old, I asked camly but with a touch of confusion "Only rolling? Can we do something else where we can learn a bit better, like drills or something, rolling is fun and all but we might need something else right now." He was clearly not happy I asked that and was like whatever, I said roll but you can do whatever you want. So we did as he said and sparred for an hour.
After class I asked him if he had time to talk, so I could address the whole "leaving without notice" situation, and he said no. But started a meltdown where he yelled at me for "disobeying his orders" "trying to be the boss" and being disrespectful with how I said it. He imitaded me and said I made a super annoyed sound like "pfffft roolling?? reaaaaally??? pffffffffffffff cant we do something else???" I apologized to him for the way it came across and for how it made him feel and started to address the actual topic and he basically said "we are lucky he didn't just close the gym" and if we want to know whats up we should have texted him. After about an hour of talking and realising he either doesn't get the issue or just doesn't think he's at fault, we left. After a weekend we talked about the issue again and now he alleged that us talking about his week of absence is talking shit about him and not being loyal and basically us voicing our opinions in the gym in front of the cameras is considered a betrayal.
Long story short, I left the gym and the remaining 6 months of my contract and started at another good gym. But from what I hear classes are still getting cancelled randomly and people are being ignored or maltreated for no apparent reason.
How can someone file a complaint about this gym owner / franchisee?
Is this grounds enough for a partial refund of my membership?
Have you had similar experiences?
Thanks for reading all of this if you did, enjoy your day and keep jiu jitsu gay.

2023.06.09 09:45 StatisticianSad6853 Unlock the world, one international trip at a time!
Unlock the world, one international trip at a time! According to human psychology, we often focus on money and go for the cheapest international trip. If you’re from India, you search for the “cheapest international trip from India” and likewise for any other country. Still, none of us focus on the planning and organization element of the trip.
Traveling is one of the most enriching experiences a person can have. Not only does it allow you to explore new cultures, cuisines, and landscapes, but it also helps you grow as an individual.
For starters, traveling expands your horizons and broadens your perspective on life. You get to see how people from different parts of the world live, their beliefs, and their daily routines. This exposure to diversity helps you become more open-minded and accepting of others. Additionally, you learn new things and gain a deeper appreciation for different cultures and their histories.
Another reason why traveling is amazing is that it allows you to disconnect from your daily routine and live in the moment. Whether relaxing on a beach, hiking through a jungle, or exploring a bustling city, traveling forces you to slow down and live in the present. This can be incredibly refreshing, especially for those constantly busy with work or other responsibilities.
Traveling also helps you build confidence and independence. When you’re in a new place, you must navigate unfamiliar terrain, communicate with people who speak different languages, and find your way around without the comfort of the familiar. This can be challenging at first, but with time, you’ll find that you’re able to handle new situations with ease and that your confidence has grown
Since the end of the global pandemic, there has been a surge of Indians who want to travel and explore all the hidden gems spread across the globe. Traveling internationally can be a life-changing experience but can also be overwhelming and stressful without proper planning. From obtaining a visa to packing, there are many things to consider before embarking on an international trip. To have the best international trip from India

2023.06.09 09:41 honeymartiaan How do I (23f) deal with workplace jealousy? Bf is 25m
My boyfriend works in a female dominated field. We have been together since before he started this job (2 years together, 1 at this company) he is the only man in his department of the office and has made it clear he is in a committed relationship. His is a tall and handsome with long hair and a gorgeous, friendly smile.
He has set boundaries with a few coworkers who have been a little too friendly. Examples are inviting him over to events, church and parties, which he always politely declines. His company has a work group chat so they all have his number and every once in a while some of these women will text him separately. (Sending him memes, tiktoks, asking what he wants from Starbucks, not work related stuff) this come across to me as flirty and while I’m glad he is honest enough to tell me, I can’t help but feel uncomfortable that they want him, or at the very least his attention.
The examples are all admittedly pretty small, however it still makes me upset to think about him being around these people every day.
He knows how I feel and reassures me I have nothing to worry about, he loves me and is only attracted to me. Please don’t come at him as he isn’t doing anything wrong. (He doesn’t engage in conversation at work except the bare minimum small talk to be polite) The advice I’m seeking is how do I accept the inevitable fact that other women will be attracted to him? And how do I deal with those women being people he works with and has to interact with everyday?
TLDR: women at bfs work bid for his attention and it makes me uncomfortable. He has set boundaries, what can I do to feel safe?

The Monster Hunter franchise returns with the previously Nintendo exclusive finally getting its release on PlayStation. Prepare for one long, grindy and fulfilling ride collecting monster crowns all over again. This guide will now include the massive Sunbreak DLC complete with new monsters and better end game gear to make your platinum or 100% completion more efficient. Trophy Guide Powerpyx Trophy Guide for Monster Hunter Rise Powerpyx Trophy Guide for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak
Full credit to Powerpyx for the guides. Wiki Guides https://game8.co/games/Monster-Hunter-Rise https://monsterhunterrise.wiki.fextralife.com/Monster+Hunter+Rise+Wiki
Credit to Game8 and Fextralife for the excellent wikis. Game8 has the more comprehensive guide complete with locations on where to farm certain items, along with equipment builds
and other very useful information. Best to choose one of those builds as your base and swap out armors and skills along the way to find the build perfect for you. Fextralife has a more tabulated approach on the info that helps you get a quick glance on what you are looking for with lesser clicks but may have only concise information compared to Game8. For example, If you are looking for an item drop from a small monster, Fextralife will show you drop rates and which map to visit for your hunt. Game8 will give you a little more and show you the areas in the map where these small monsters are located. Intro
If you're a beginner to the game or the series in general, the beginning sections and tutorials will naturally be quite overwhelming. Take things one step at a time, find a weapon that fits your play style best and enjoy the ride until you get a decent amount of monster hunts in to familiarize yourself with the game.
There will be tons of things to tweak and learn about on this game and no single article can give justice to the complexities of how to fully optimize your experience so additional research is recommended. Treat this article as a supplementary guide. Efficiency Tips
Enjoy the story and progress through the main quest line as soon and as often as you can. The reason for this is as you progress through the story and your hunter rank increases, more equipment upgrades will be available to you along with the ability to upgrade the base defense of your gear further which unlocks incrementally as you increase in rank. The more defense you have means the more hits you can take and less healing items you consume which you can spend learning the monsters moves and hitting it.
Work on the 🏆 Beat-up Construction Kit as soon as possible and unlock all camp site locations on each map so you can fast travel conveniently closer to your target's location. Materials List and Locations
can be found here on Game8 to search for your gear and quest requirements. Browse it or simply drop the item you are looking for on the search bar. Blights and Status Ailments Explained and their Cures
is explained best in GadgetGabe's Top Voted answer from this GameFAQs forum. Use this wisely to cure yourself ASAP and stay at tip top shape for your fight. You can eventually customize your item load outs when hunting particular monsters.
Register an inventory and radial menu layout that is best for your hunt and tweak it accordingly if you are working on a solo hunt or are in a group. You can set up your action bar (the bar that uses the left and right d-pad) too.
Learn about monster elemental and ailment weaknesses, weak points and parts that you can sever to improve your success rate in a fight. E.g. Flash bombs work well on monsters in flight. Severing a Pukei-pukei's tail makes the monster incapable of it's wide poison gas attack. Monster Elemental and Ailment Weaknesses and Immunities
credit to Pro Game Guides. Monster Hunter Rise explains monster elemental weaknesses well but does not give too much of a description of what elements the monster utilizes against you. To learn that and build the right resistances, refer to the Fextralife MHR Wiki.
As you progress through your hunts, make sure to pick up any hunting helpers and golden/gilded spiribugs along the way. You will need 500 and 1000 respectively for the trophies 🏆 Hunting Helpers Plate and 🏆 Golden Spiribug Plate. If you want to farm Spiribugs exclusively, this video
shows an excellent route while displaying some skills on speedy map traversal.
When you are in town, there will be times when you will be prompted that a sale is ongoing from the two merchants. Always take action on this prompt and participate in the lottery that is only available during this sale to progress towards the 12 room decorations you need to win as part of the 🏆 Sturdy Padlock. If the grand prize of the lottery is a room decoration, you have to roll a Jackpot (different from a Bingo) to win it. Even if the grand prize is not a room decoration, you are given a required room decoration for winning 100 items in the lottery. https://preview.redd.it/umkifupr4y4b1.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=59415edcabf6cce7231f813358e6ec80bd52d995 https://preview.redd.it/r14333es4y4b1.jpg?width=1640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=cacf53afbec816fd78f9567c2dc513e080f83c1d
🏆 Extravagant Cashbox
Awarded for earning 1,000,000 Zenny. The fastest method to earn zenny is by participating in the 2 Star Low Rank Event Quest - Gotta Hoard Fast!
. It can be done with a group in 1 minute and rewards you with a Golden Egg which you can sell to the merchant for 20,000z. Use whenever you are short on money. This is also the best quest to use if you want to trigger merchant sales quickly and roll on the lottery.
Using your silk bind/aerial moves to deliver mount damage (indicated by a blue cloud background on the damage inflicted) is a good tactic to learn and master. Arekkz Gaming's Monster Riding Tutorial video
explains this well. You can also scout the area where you mount the monster and bump him into special areas on the map that will deal extra damage. High Rank Quests
An Armorcharm and Powercharm will now be available to purchase from the two item merchants. These work as permanent stat increases as long as you have them in your Item Pouch. When you reach HR7, you will eventually be able to upgrade these charms into Armortalon and Powertalon. These stack and you may repurchase Armorcharm and Powercharm and hold all four items in your Item Pouch.
Decorations will unlock from the Smithy and the Melding Pot will unlock from the item merchants. This would be a good time to study the skills you have available in conjunction with your armor skills and start creating defensive/offensive load outs based on what you are up against.
For talisman crafting via the Melding Pot, craft out the desired skill you need and use accordingly. Once you have your talisman of choice, always roll with Melding - Wisp of Mystery and Melding - Rebirth (unlocks last on a higher HR). They will cost more materials to craft, but will also have better chances of a Rarity 7 Talisman with more skills and better decoration slots.
Prepare status resistances/immunities depending on the monsters you are up against and build up defense, elemental defense and even add elemental attack against them as well. Take note that elemental attack increases on skills only increases an existing element
on weapons (or elemental ammo for bowguns) and can not create an element from a non-elemental weapon source.
For more on elemental damage
and elemental resistances
, see Fextralife's articles linked accordingly.
Armorskin and Demondrug and their corresponding Mega version are items consumed once and will last until you faint or complete the quest. Invest in them as soon as you have the zenny to afford them. You will need to farm Pale Extract
from the monster Khezu or purchased as a rare find in the Argosy to craft the mega drugs. You may also choose to deploy the meowcenaries to fight a Khezu to increase your item farm. Master Rank Quests and Sunbreak Content
With Sunbreak comes a whole new base map and two new locations to explore. Like the base game, there are a number of trophies that involve you interacting with the townsfolk and the goods and services they have to offer. Refer to this video guide
for a checklist of what you need to be doing after every quest to cover the trophies 🏆 Snowy Cohoot Minipouch, 🏆 Secret Honey Jar, 🏆 Unbreakable Bag, 🏆 Solid Padlock, 🏆Polychrome Acorn and 🏆 Sojourn Necklace.
🏆 Solid Padlock requires another set of items you need to win in the lottery but take note that the Gargolda Statue
only starts appearing after you take a picture of it. Take a daytime expedition for a photo of the creature. Gamer Guru's video shows you how to do it.
Refer to Game8's Eurekacorn article
for more ways on farming Eurekacorns for your Polychrome Acorn trophy. Efficiency Tip: Target an expedition with a Herb Node in the Frost Islands together with a Khezu Node for both Eurekacorns and Pale Extracts.
For efficient map traversal, unlock the alternative camp sites on the two new Sunbreak areas along with the new buddy recon points. You will have to unlock 2 recon points per map, for a total of 12 for 🏆 Buddy Whistle. Darcblade has an excellent video guide
to cover this. Crown Hunting
🏆 Mini Crown Plaque and 🏆 Gold Crown Plaque will most likely be the last trophies you will get in the game as these are very grindy to obtain. These entail slaying or capturing the smallest and largest versions of each monster, awarding you a gold crown on your Hunter's Notes. An alternative grouped view of all your crowns can be found in OPT -> Multiplayer -> Guild Cards -> View -> L1 for Hunting Log. Unlike MH World, Rise does not include a crown notification in the points reward section after a hunt.
You will have to check your Hunter Notes manually. You do get a prompt of "Monster Size Updated" right after the kill or capture though as your best indicator of a possible crown. Crown Hunting Tips and Drop Rates
explained by Luke Albigés of TrueAchievements Efficient Strategy
You will want to clear out all the crowns you can possibly obtain from the quests with the 100% chance or boosted crown rate quests. For everything else, learn how to crown snipe to save time and not waste too much time on normal sized targets. If your are sure that your target monster is not a crown size, abort your quest and start a new one. Take note that you need to capture/kill 10 monsters of each type for their respective monster scroll to progress on your 🏆 Sturdy Padlock so anything close to a perceived small or large crown would be worth the kill. The Sunbreak Expansion and Master Rank buffs up the crown monsters appearance rate to as high as 10% for large and 6% for minis. You are best saving the crown hunt for last as you have to tackle Anomaly Investigations for the Sunbreak 🏆 Bahari's Hand Wound Birdie, which entails you earning and spending 3000 Investigation Coins as rewards for these type of quests along with clearing out every single Master Rank quest for the 🏆 Record of Utmost Valor - Master and clearing out 1-4 star anomaly quests for the 🏆 Painting - Crimson Nightmare. There are a total of 7 1-star anomaly quests to unlock and 8 quests for 2-4 stars. There is a good chance that you will be earning majority of these crowns along your progression towards these three trophies with minimal crown cleanup. Videos for Monster Measurements
As of this writing, there seems to be a lack of content on Large and Mini Gold Crowns for MH Rise. Below is video clips to give some clues on how these monster sizes will look when you encounter them. Monster sizes with 100% chance drop quests will be excluded from this segment. Kiranico
has an excellent large monster guide which also displays the recommended quest to participate in with corresponding crown percentages. Anomaly Investigation quest monsters have fixed sizes and will never yield any crowns.
The normal Anomaly Quests will share the same 6% small and 10% large crown chance as the MR quests. Base Game Crowns Anjanath Mini Gold Crown Barioth Large Gold Crown Barioth Mini Gold Crown Barroth Mini Gold Crown Chameleos Large Gold Crown Chameleos Mini Gold Crown Great Izuchi Large Gold Crown Great Izuchi Mini Gold Crown Ku-Lu-Yaku Large Gold Crown Ku-Lu-Yaku Mini Gold Crown Kushala Daora Mini Gold Crown Lagombi Large Gold Crown Rakna-Kadaki Large Gold Crown Rathalos Mini Gold Crown Royal Ludroth Large Gold Crown Teostra Large Gold Crown Teostra Mini Gold Crown Sunbreak Crowns
There are only 16 additional monsters tied up to the crown trophies for Sunbreak which are the monsters that were available at the original release of the game. You will need these 16 monsters along with all the base game crowns for the 🏆 Miniature Crown Shield and 🏆 Gold Crown Shield to unlock. Refer to the Gold Crown Shield
segment of Powerpyx's guide for the full list. Astalos Large Gold Crown Aurora Somnacanth Mini Gold Crown Gore Magala Large Gold Crown Malzeno Large Gold Crown Pyre Rakna-Kadaki Large Gold Crown Scorned Magnamalo Large Gold Crown Miscellaneous Grind
🏆 Antique Bookmark
Achieved by collecting all 60 Relics scattered over the 5 available maps. Powerpyx's guide for all Relic Locations
shows these well. There is a correction to the linked article however, as it is mentioned there that the Rampage Relics unlock after collecting all 10 other Relics per map but is incorrect (unsure what triggers rampage Relic availability but I had access to them at 5 star quest availability on Village and Hub quests). To track the relics you have collected already, go to OPT -> Info -> Hunter Notes -> Notebook.
Gaming with Abyss has good Monster Hunter trophy content and shows locations of each relic per map clearly on his videos. Shrine Ruins Frost Islands Flooded Forest Sandy Plains Lava Caverns
Other Useful Information Affinity vs Raw Damage
is discussed well on this steamcommunity forum. The difference between KO/Stun and Trip
is explained will in this article. Note that KO and Stun status are the same (in game and articles call it one or the other so this can be confusing) but Trip status is different. Critical Boost
at level 1 raises damage dealt by critical hits by 5%. Your critical hits are already at a base amplified damage of 25% (not mentioned in-game). This could be deceiving due to the in-game skill definition. Palamutes and Palicos
you bring on the hunt increase your ease and efficiency and are best slotted with the best gear for your playstyle. Game8 has an excellent buddy guide
that discusses end game builds.
Use the Basic
behavior if you are running a melee focused buddy and Follow
if you are using a ranged buddy. This is discussed thoroughly by CheaterMcCheat
On solo hunts, don't let the common combo of 1 Palico and 1 Palamute mold you to run with that as there are several builds that utilize 2 Palicos or 2 Palamutes in one hunt. For example, you may want to use a double Palamute with C Jelly Travel Bag X
weapon on the Best Equipment For Sunbreak (Ranged)
segment. Accompanied with the Palamute Silkbinder, this build can provide excellent monster control.
Ordering Motley Mixes
in the canteen nets you dango tickets
as a reward. Claim it from the chef after some orders and use the tickets with hopping skewers on your harder hunts. Latent Power skill
is triggered by an internal timer upon monster encounter and attack animations and is explained here on Fextralife's wiki. Auto-shoutouts
are useful for your party and even yourself. You can program these auto shoutouts via OPT -> Multiplayer -> Chat Menu -> Triangle and click on the field under Text to program what you want to shout-out, choose the box under speech timing to choose the condition. These conditions aren't fixed and you have more to choose from. The most useful ones are the auto shoutouts for "When you set a trap" and "When a monster is limping" where the monster enters the blue icon state and is capturable if it is not an elder, apex or afflicted monster. Weapon Specific Notes Light Bowgun Light Bowgun Basic Moves and Ammo Types
credit to Phemeto
Pay attention to the color of your reticle. An orange reticle tells you that your ammo type is in its ideal range and will deal its intended damage. A yellow reticle means your shots will hit, but will be significantly weaker.
The Fanning Vault Silkbind skill is best used with your Wyvernblast special ammo. Press circle while you are directly under the monster to plant a bomb directly on it. You will be replacing this with the Switch Skill Fanning Maneuver for end game builds.
Ammo Details can be found by going to Items and Equipment (opt button) -> Equipment Info -> Ammo Details (square)
You will normally run out of your full magazine of your most desired ammo. To minimize returning to camp, bring the materials you need to craft that ammo and set it on your radial menu. Also, avoid bringing the ammo type you never use to keep your ammo menu as decluttered as possible for efficient ammo switching. It is encouraged to bind the ammo you use and their craft commands in your radial menu as well. Recoil
is the delay between firing shots (different from Reload
delay). Lower recoil = Faster Attack Speed Deviation
is the drift of the bullets when you fire. If you have a weapon with deviation, it will travel center for a medium distance then swerve to the L or R depending on the strength of the deviation. Targeting "No deviation" is ideal.
Decorations can be crafted to reduce Reload, Recoil and Deviation. Light Bowgun Weapon & Armor Skills
Bombardier skill does not work with any ammos, including sticky, cluster, or wyvernblast. Normal/Rapid Up
skill improves Normal Ammo damage by 5%/10%/20% and stacks with the skill Rapid Fire Up
which enhances rapid fire damage also by 5%/10%/20% Great Sword
Recommended Switch Skills are Tackle, Rage Slash (RS), and Adamant Charged Slash (ACS). All three can tank monster attacks (no knockbacks) and negates roar effects. Tackle is the bread and butter during roars and quick monster attacks since its easy to trigger, You can use Adamant Charged Slash for positioning, and Rage Slash to land your last charged attack on your desired direction, which True Charged Slash Skill cant do.
How to Unlock:
Adamant Charged Slash - Unlocked by crafting/upgrading 8 different Greatswords, no duplicates. Replaces the Hunting Edge skill.
Rage Slash - Unlocked by completing the quest "Grasp the Greatsword" (HR5 Quest). Replaces the True Charged Slash skill. Low Rank Entry GS - Crit Eye Build Low Rank GS - Crit Draw Build
- 80% Affinity on Overhead and Charged Slash High Rank GS Build
- 90% Affinity on Weakpoints + Focus 3 Several members of the PSTHPH team contributed to the making of this guide. There is an ongoing issue with this article preventing further edits. Please check the comments for more.
2023.06.09 09:36 Psychology1421 Sunlight Powered Chargers-eco-catastrophe already in work
While they are being advanced all over the planet as a pivotal weapon in decreasing fossil fuel byproducts, sunlight powered chargers have a typical life expectancy of 25-30 years. Specialists express billions of boards will ultimately all should be discarded and supplanted. "The world has introduced more than one terawatt of sunlight based limit. Customary sunlight powered chargers have a limit of around 400W, so in the event that you count the two roofs and sun based ranches, there could be pretty much as numerous as 2.5 billion sunlight based chargers.," says Dr Rong Deng, a specialist in sunlight powered charger reusing at the College of New South Grains in Australia. As per the English government, there are a huge number of sunlight based chargers in the UK. However, the expert framework to scrap and reuse them is deficient. Energy specialists are calling for pressing government activity to forestall an approaching worldwide ecological debacle. "It will be a waste mountain by 2050, except if we get reusing chains rolling presently," says Ute Collier, delegate head of the Worldwide Sustainable power Organization. "We're creating an ever increasing number of sun powered chargers - which is perfect - yet how can we go to manage the waste?" she inquires. • BBC Sounds - The Environment Question - How sustainable are renewables? It is trusted a significant step will be taken toward the finish of June, when the world's most memorable production line devoted to completely reusing sunlight powered chargers formally opens in France. ROSI, the expert sun powered reusing organization which possesses the office, in the Elevated city of Grenoble, trusts in the end to have the option to concentrate and yet again utilize the vast majority of a unit's parts. As well as reusing the glass fronts and aluminum outlines, the new manufacturing plant can recuperate essentially every one of the valuable materials held inside the boards, for example, silver and copper, which are normally the absolute hardest materials to separate. These uncommon materials can in this manner be reused and reused to make new, more remarkable, sun oriented units.
Regular techniques for reusing sunlight based chargers recuperate the majority of the aluminum and glass - yet ROSI says the glass, specifically, is of somewhat inferior quality.
The glass recuperated utilizing those strategies can be utilized to make tiles, or in sandblasting - it can likewise be blended in with different materials to make black-top - yet it can't be utilized in applications where high-grade glass is required, like the creation of new sunlight powered chargers.
Blast period The new ROSI plant will open during a blast period for sunlight based charger establishments.
The world's sun based energy age limit became by 22% in 2021. Around 13,000 photovoltaic (PV) sun powered chargers are fitted in the UK consistently - the majority of them on the tops of private houses.
As a rule, sunlight based units become moderately uneconomical before they arrive at the finish of their normal life expectancy. New, more productive plans advance at customary spans, meaning it can demonstrate less expensive to supplant sun powered chargers that are just 10 or 15 years of age with refreshed variants.
On the off chance that ongoing development patterns are supported, Ms Collier says, the volume of scrap sunlight powered chargers could be colossal.
"By 2030, we believe we will have 4,000,000 tons [of scrap] - which is as yet sensible - yet by 2050, we could wind up with in excess of 200 million tons all around the world."
To place that into viewpoint, the world right now delivers a sum of 400 million tons of plastic consistently.
Reusing difficulties The explanation there are scarcely any offices for reusing sunlight based chargers is on the grounds that there has not been a lot of waste to process and reuse as of not long ago.
The original of homegrown sun powered chargers is simply now reaching the finish of its usable life. With those units currently moving toward retirement, specialists say earnest activity is required.
"Right now is an ideal opportunity to ponder this," says Ms Collier.
France is as of now a pioneer among European countries with regards to handling photovoltaic waste, says Nicolas Defrenne. His association, Soren, accomplices with ROSI and different firms, co-ordinating the decommissioning of sunlight powered chargers all over France.
"The greatest one [we decommissioned] required three months," Mr Defrenne reviews.
His group at Soren has been trying different things with various approaches to reusing what they gather: "We're tossing everything at the wall and seeing what sticks."
At ROSI's cutting edge plant in Grenoble, the sunlight based chargers are meticulously dismantled to recuperate the valuable materials inside - like copper, silicon and silver.
Each sun powered charger contains just small pieces of these valuable materials and those parts are so interwoven with different parts that, as of not long ago, it has not been monetarily suitable to isolate them.
But since they are so significant, removing those valuable materials productively could be a unique advantage, says Mr Defrenne.
"More than 60% of the worth is contained in 3% of the heaviness of the sun powered chargers," he says.
The group at Soren are confident that, later on, almost 3/4 of the materials expected to make new sunlight based chargers - including silver - can be recuperated from resigned PV units and reused - to assist with accelerating creation of new boards.
At present there isn't sufficient silver accessible to fabricate the large numbers of sunlight based chargers which will be expected in the progress from petroleum derivatives, says Mr Defrenne: "You can see where you have a creation bottleneck, it's silver."
In the interim English researchers have been attempting to foster comparative innovation to ROSI.
Last year, specialists at the College of Leicester reported they had worked out how to separate silver from PV units utilizing a type of saline.
However, up until this point, ROSI is the main organization in its field to have increased its activity to modern levels.
Besides, the innovation is costly. In Europe, merchants or makers of sunlight based chargers are answerable for discarding them when they become superfluous. What's more, many blessing pulverizing or destroying the waste - which is far less expensive.
Mr Defrenne recognizes that escalated reusing of sun powered chargers is still in its early stages. Soren and its accomplices reused just shy of 4,000 tons of French sun powered chargers last year.
However, there is potential to do much more. Also, he's making that his central goal.
"The heaviness of the multitude of new sunlight powered chargers sold last year in France was 232,000 tons - in this way, when those wear out in 20 years, that is the amount I'll have to gather consistently.
"At the point when that occurs, my own will likely guarantee France will be the innovative head of the world."
