  1. Wolves lost because they couldn't hit their free throws. That's really it. Yes, KAT and Ant didn't play well - but despite that if they would have hit from the line they would likely have pulled it off. Wolves need to (and obviously can) play better, but that game doesn't have me particularly worried about the series
  2. Never really got into CRPGs before, tried the original BG but lost interest quickly when I had no idea what I was doing, my party kept getting mad at me, and I just wasn't clicking with the combat. That changed with BG3 and have played about 200 hours of that game, so I went hunting for others and picked up Divinity Original Sin 2 on my switch for a recent trip to India. Did a first run on "normal" and realized I was playing very sub-optimally during the Fort Joy Simulator, so I restarted and dropped the difficulty so I could get used to the game and get into the story. I'm about 30 hours in now and am absolutely loving it. My main is a summoner/necromancer with a mage, ranger, and fighter as my companions. All origin characters so I'm getting a ton of story and I'm starting to really get into my builds. I'm really excited to respec in Act 2 since I know I made some bad point allocation, but even with that my characters are still very powerful on easy. This is definitely a game I see myself playing for a long time and several run throughs
  3. Anybody playing Star Wars Unlimited? It's the new TCG not owned by Hasbro or Disney - which means it's actually really fucking good. I've gone to a few events and my friends and I have all bought a couple boxes of cards, and so far we've had an absolute blast playing it.
  4. I will take the over if we don’t trade JJ. Our skill positions are some of the best in the league and we were competitive with Mullens throwing 4 interceptions a game, JJ out half the season, and no running back. Obvious question marks about Darnold, but without looking at the schedule, 7 games seems low. And think about the QBs Oconnel is looking for. He doesn’t know what to do with a guy who relies on his legs, and those guys typically fall in the draft. Getting one at 11 seems reasonable and a good opportunity to sit for a year. I’m not expecting anything huge, but I do think they will be competitive
  5. And…. Sam Darnold to my Vikes along with Aaron Jones. I actually like the Darnold signing more, but really hope we don’t spend our draft on another WR
  6. Obi-Wan is always going to have a special place in my heart, because the last 30 minutes have been watched by my 4 (now 5) year old about 100 times, got him into star wars where we've watched every film multiple times, and made Darth Vader his favorite character. He's going to look back at it with the fondest memories of lightsaber duels with his dad, while it played in the background, using his little Vader voice saying "you broke my helmet". So say what you will about it, but it made at least one new Star Wars fan, so in my eyes it was hugely successful.
  7. Do we have any Chicago fans here? I assume not otherwise I would have thought there would be more talk, but what do folks think about trading Fields away for Caleb? I think it's monumentally stupid, but par for the course in 'ol Chi-town.
  8. I was really surprised that the niners started their first 3 3rd quarter possessions with a pass play. All three times it set them back and forced situations where they had to pass after. They were cutting up the defense on the ground, so it really felt like Shannahan got in his own way (again) trying to get cute instead of pounding the ball. Didn't make sense to me, but at the same time it seemed that CMC was absolutely gassed by the end of the game.
  9. Karmic dice are off for me. The problem is that it doesn't just impact your rolls, but your enemies rolls as well. I much prefer pure randomness. I don't even save scum (I don't think that's particularly fun), but I do think it provides a better experience.
  10. I think this game will come down to whether the KC DBs can catch balls that hit them in the numbers or right in the facemask.
  11. If you would have told me at the beginning of the year that I would score 175 points in the championship game that there would be no way I wouldn't be headed to experts. Great season @JJ Lannister and killer final game!
  12. If there was ever a season where a non-QB should get the award, it's this one.
  13. True, but it doesn't impact anything, nobody even mentions it. But like I said previously, you may want to choose not to use them for RP purposes.
  14. Short answer is no, there is only upside, the only reason to resist is for role playing purposes.
  15. Heard a stat last night that the Chiefs as a whole currently lead the league in dropped passes.
  16. Got this in September and have been absolutely obsessed with it. First playthrough was a vengeance paladin that I turned into an Oathbreaker on accident immediately. Between Tav and Lae'zel I just crushed through everyone w/ melee, romanced Shadowheart, and leveraged Astarion for lockpicking and archery support. Total play time was 95 hours for my first campaign. Started a new playthrough and created two custom characters via couch co-op, so am playing a bard healer and a druid wild shape w/ Karlach and Gale. Only up to level 3 so far with that one. Also have a multiplayer campaign with some friends. In that one I'm playing a sorcerer with my friends playing as a wizard and barbarian. We're level 4 in that one and about to take down the Goblin camp in Act 1. That game is pretty significantly slower than my solo games, but WAY more fun
  17. Glad you're moving forward. I build custom react (a javascript framework) sites for my job as well as a side hustle - so if you ever get into that realm my door is always open. Hopefully you didn't pay for the entire thing up front. I usually get a down payment to show seriousness, then get the rest when it's delivered - but I've found the side hustle to such a PITA that I don't really do it anymore. People don't really understand that while I can build something for you, you still need somewhere to deploy it, keep up with security, make sure its up and running, etc... that all have their ongoing costs and headaches. These days I point them to various CMS providers (something like wordpress) that can typically get you off the ground, have templates, and are built for the layperson to manage themselves.
  18. So has the Wilson trade taken the mantle as the worst in history yet?
  19. When the schedule was announced I said the Vikings were a 6 win team. Then I thought with Flores and the changes on the offensive side that I might have underestimated them. Nope. They will be lucky to be a 6 win team. @Tywin et al. was right. This should have been a full rebuild year. This season is gonna be rough.
  20. Why are they allowing the Eagles right tackle to be 3 yards in the backfield before every pass play?
  21. Spent more on QBs this year than previous years, so we'll see how that goes. Last year was an absolute bust with all the injuries, so this year I opted to take more insurance guys as backups. I like this team way more than my 12 man draft where I drafted 11th QB - Justin Fields Chi, Jalen Hurts Phi (Marcus Mariota Phi, Sam Darnold SF) WR - CeeDee Lamb Dal, Amon-Ra St. Brown Det, Courtland Sutton Den, Darnell Mooney Chi (Marquise Brown Ari, Jameson Williams Det, K.J. Osborn Min) RB - Travis Etienne Jr. Jax, J.K. Dobbins Bal, Samaje Perine Den (Javonte Williams Den, Chuba Hubbard Car, Marquez Valdes-Scantling KC, Matt Breida NYG) TE - George Kittle SF (Cole Kmet Chi) K - Younghoe Koo Atl D - New England
