F2P Combat Autism Games Anonymous Comrade 03/29/2020 (Sun) 02:03:24 No. 7548 [Reply] [Last]
Hello everyone, after some serious temptation due to watching various militaria channels for some months I think I'm gonna finally jump on the bandwagon and try WT/WoT. Does anyone have experience with these kind of games? How badly exactly am I gonna get fucked by premium/longtime players? I did some searches and it seems most people agree that WT is much more realistic and simulator-y than WoT which is good cause I'd like to try realism. So, that's the one I'm downloading right now, but does anyone else have a different opinion on it? In addition, I know there's probably a huge amount of affiliate new member deals out there but does anyone know what one is the best I can use currently, ideally linked to a good YT channel that deserves it? If not I can just search for it but hey. General advice for getting started (or why I shouldn't)?

>>7551 Perhaps I will try it sometime but I like tanks more, tbh. Anyway, I did finally find a promo code and got free American premium tank so I started off with Americans, I was having a lot of fun with the light scout tanks you start with and was doing pretty well. Eventually I decided to try branch out a bit once I was in 1.3 and try a tournament which meant we were in 'realistic' mode. And, wow, it was absolutely miserable. Giant empty maps and German tank destroyers and the like hiding absolutely everywhere, my M2s and the like were absolutely outclassed and worthless. I was dead most of the time before I even saw an enemy. Then I drive all the way back to the objective and repeat. Every other player was just hiding behind rocks and the like and not even trying to capture or defend anything. Absolutely infuriating and that was how every battle in realistic mode went. I dunno if it's the game, my skill level, or just early American tanks, but wow, it sucked.
>>7575 Now of course you might say that the obvious solution is to stick to arcade mode, but it kinda makes me feel like a scrub :( Well, anyway, gonna start out with the Soviet tech tree instead and hopefully that will go better.
>>7576 Don't feel like a scrub. Simulator mode for tanks is nothing but ambushes since there are no IFF indicators. It's realistic for sure since ambushing is a pretty effective way to destroy tanks but if it's not enjoyable then don't play it.
>>7583 Yeah, I think you're probably right about that. It just seems to encourage a very unfun and scrubby playstyle to me. Perhaps I will give it another shot when I'm better at the game. Anyway, my progress on the Soviet tree has gone pretty well, I even tried some other types of low tier vehicles like a little tankette with an autocannon instead of a main gun, got a decent few kill streaks with it but decided to stop when I came upon two bots and one enemy player and was outmanouvering them and surviving by stunning them with the autocannon but wasn't able to penetrate them at all at point blank range so inevitably I died once the player got me in his sights properly. And the less said about my attempts to use the AA truck the better.

Going to the US and the degeneracy were incidental, plus he clearly dislikes capitalism and can observe and display contempt for the enhanced alienation of the cosmopolitan libs he encounters in Liberty City (which is basically NY)

Got poison oak all over my body and face clearing land in a think thorny area. Id it for a trees and shade favoring flower garden.
>>6321 I'd like to do this but I don't even know what plants are native to my area.
>>6312 Some flowering plants are edible (fruits come from flowers), and lots of flowers will attract pollinators for any fruiting plants you have.

Does anyone know the "language" of flowers and flower arrangements? I don't remember much about it, but it sounds intriguing. Also if I remember correctly certain flowers are used for different kinds of medical toxins/poisons used by people in the past (such as Belladona). Pic related
>>7382 Depending on where you are you may have a government department that catalogs that information.

We need to make bunkerchan browseable on smartphones. Clover was really comfy for browsing 8/leftypol/. Any Comrade willing to help implementing the Lynxchan API to Clover/Kuroba?

Repositories for references:


Currently they support only the Vichan API, but implementing Lynxchan API shouldn't be too hard.

Really like the Japanese novel From the New World which has a free translation in here http://shinsekai.cadet-nine.org Also would recommend the anime which came from the book.
>>7167 What’s the deal with Japan’s fear of superpowers in general?
>>7148 I made a thread about utopias in particular >>6533
>>7148 Blindsight was pretty good and one of the first book that made me question the meaning of sentience. Was it just our still idealism that separates true self awareness with Chinese room AIs. Especially love how it makes the post human alien to the point of lossing our sympathy for them. The Lensmen series is also peak sci-fi opera and that was written by a food engineer (also that DC ripped it off).
>>7174 1) China-Mongol attempt at invasion 2) Japan's small size 3) Japan's own strive for imperialism 4) WW-IIs staggering defeat.

Godard Anonymous Comrade 03/18/2020 (Wed) 22:13:07 No. 7100 [Reply] [Last]
Do you like Godard movies? Probably most famous leftist director. Do you think he doing disservice to socialist ideas by obscuring them? I love his 60s movies: Pierrot le fou, Weekend, but i must admit i dont understand his latest movies, maybe because i dont understand historical context. I watched Film Socialisme today but i dont know what to think about that, can anyone explain what does he want to achieve?
Can't really help you with his later stuff, but I've enjoyed all of his early New Wave works from the 60s as well. Contempt, My Life to Live, and Alphaville are personal favorites.

This is of course correct.

On an unrelated not, it's pretty impressive that they don't paywall any of their content. It's only their hack fraud no budget movies you have to pay for.
He strikes me as a "South Park Conservative." You know, someone who doesn't take politics seriously and who doesn't think too deeply about their assumptions, so progressive kind of shit seems silly in general and the current crop of wokies look like they're from another dimension. They'd rather laugh at the weird shit and half-ironically lament how crazy the world has become instead of questioning why it is the way that it is.

I think that without Mike the show might have had a more woke angle (given shit I've heard Jay and Jack say). I'm glad that among all the movies and TV discourse there are people who don't lend the woke marketing shit credence and even mock it sometimes. I think the discourse may be starting to turn on this thanks in part to the 2016 US elections using idpol and the 2020 election flaming out hardcore on that front already. From a strategic ideological perspective, having people just be largely neutral is good because it helps weaken the perceived hegemony of liberal ideology. Also, Mike was the one who started the whole thing and still does a lot of the work, so without him there probably wouldn't be a show at all.

>>6959 1. Male movie reviewers literally review movies as bad because female actors don't show enough tits. The male gaze objectifying people to consume them is absolutely an injustice, any Marxis should oppose the commodification of women. Of course brosocialists hate "woke identity politics" so they'll never talk about how Hollywood contributes to the ongoing rape of women in porn lol 2. How many white settler colonialist people will point out the obviously CIA funded movies, or the inherent fascism of heroic myths for Iron Man/Black Panther/etc This is a redpill for morons who don't understand capitalist systems.
