Storage solution for a game with 44 tuckboxes?

by moleknightsucks. Posted on Aug 11, 2020


I'm looking for something that can store three seasons of Exceed, which totals 44 tuckboxes and one playmat. I can't find anything that would store beyond maybe 30, which is the Ultimate Guard Superhive. Is there anything that is sort of a mammoth version of that, for storing even more? One more row in that design would do it. I know I could just throw everything into a cardboard box, but I'm willing to pay more money for something nicer.

Banned for boosting after 4 good games at 900elo

by ZoukiWouki. Posted on Aug 11, 2020


Hello,

I'm writting here because I got wrongfully identified as a booster and banned 1 year from ranked. I used to be 3.5k during beta, played causually with years long breaks during last 7 years and got placed at 900 elo, I started to play consistently very recently for holiday and got banned for boosting.At -2400 elo under my personal top it is normal that I manage to do a few games in a row with more than 35kills.

If vocal chat is recorded and kept then it is easy to check that I was the one playing.

dotabuff.com/players/39693132/matches?hero=silencer

Like you can see, playing the same build since the past 5 years with silencer.

No bad conduct flame, abandon, gg ez, ect. Average 20 commend per 15 games since started playing again this year. So this cannot be for behavior.

There is a problem with the current boosting detection system that is banning regular player who had good games and apparently no one in community hub can do anything and same for the steam support, so I end up there as I saw a post about someone managing to do it.

I would really like to play my holiday hobby back again and I think it is too easy for people to get banned for boosting (as it is banning normal players like me). If someone could help or making this visible that would be really kind.

a couple of questions PARENTAL CONTROLS

by gardnafari. Posted on Aug 11, 2020


A few questions.

  1. Everytime my son takes his XBOX ONE to his cousins house it somehow seems to impact his time limits we have setup the next day when connecting back to our network, even though it is showing up online that his limits are still there - it allows him to go over them without being disconnected.
  2. Second question is related. Online there are two options Screen Time and App and Game Limits. In theory if your Screen time is 90 minutes then you wouldn't have to setup anything else up under app and game limits because after 90 minutes whatever app or game they were playing would stop working OR do you have to do something on the App and game limit tab as well?

Help buying a PC for dota 2

by Sind23. Posted on Aug 11, 2020


Hey 9k mmr redditors, I am looking to buy a new PC as I have grown tired of playing on a laptop, it just doesnt feel the same. I've been on a break from dotes for about 3 months now and the time might have come for a comeback!

My budget is around 1.4-1.5k Euros so not ultra expensive but still I would think puts me in a position to look for somewhat higher end PCs. I am mostly looking for a finished product rather than building it myself, and as someone who isnt much of an expert (knows mostly basics) it would be nice to get some insight from people who play dota as it is what I will be playing exclusively (and maybe some WoW with new expansion). Here are some examples of what I have been looking at. (also would like some insight on intel vs amd as I really dont know the difference)

​

example 1:

Intel® Core™ i7-9700-prosessor

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super, 8 GB

512 GB M.2 PCIe SSD 16GB RAM

​

Example 2:

ASUS GeForce RTX 2060 DUAL EVO OC
PCI-Express 3.0, 6GB GDDR6, 1365/1755MHz, Turing

Intel Core i5-10400F Prosessor, Tray
Socket-LGA1200, 6-Core, 12-Thread, 2.9/4.3GHz, Comet Lake, tray

HyperX Fury RGB DDR4 2666MHz 16GB
2x8GB 2666MHz (PC4-21300) DDR4 CL16, XMP 2.0

Kingston A2000 500GB NVMe M.2 SSD

Example 3:

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 OC
PCI-Express 3.0, 6GB GDDR6, 1365/1755MHz, Turing

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
Socket-AM4, 8-Core, 16-Thread, 3.6/4.4GHz, 65W, 7nm, tray

HyperX Fury RGB DDR4 3200MHz 16GB
2x8GB 3200MHz DDR4 CL18, XMP 2.0, sort

​

Anyway just a few examples, some more detailed than others, but any feedback is welcome.

T.I.M.E. Stories Experience disappointment

by RedLarchCartography. Posted on Aug 11, 2020


My wife and I cracked open the TIME Stories Experience box with our friends who completed the white cycle with us. We had tried out the Damien prequel and completed the HADAL scenario, and were looking forward to diving back in. What we didn’t realize is that Experience is not a game at all. It’s an add-on for Blue Cycle games, which don’t look like they are coming out any time soon. Is there homebrew out there for the blue cycle yet? Is there any way we can make this Experience purchase worthwhile?

A Game Like Wild City

by vikaslohia. Posted on Aug 11, 2020


Hello Friends.
I am looking for a game like Wild City It is defined as Mafia RPG. But its more than that. I absolutely loved this game and played religiously. This was a very popular game between 2013-2016 and I'm yet to find a game similar to this. Few things I loved about it are as below.

  1. Great graphics. Visually appealing.
  2. Has in-game purchases but beautifully balanced for free to play.
  3. Game is multi-layered. Each player can choose a different path and enjoy it. Very deep game.
  4. It's kinda social game. You have to interact with other players through chats & inbuilt mails. Trade and earn trust of fellow players. To really succeed and become a stronger player you have to be a team player.
  5. It is played in portrait mode. Which I loved as you can play with only one hand.
  6. Never get bored, new events keep coming. New types of equipment, weapons etc
  7. The game is so complex that you really have to think about it and plan ahead. I like this thinking & planning bit. It doesn't give you instant rush.

Currently, its developers have almost abandoned it. They do not moderate. There have been severe glitches. And the game is often hacked. This hacking has destroyed the in-game economy.

​

But the game is so dope that I have seen players active on it since 2013 even today. Other retired players often come just to chat and catch up. To really get the gist of this game, I'll recommend some serious players to have a look. This particular game has no future though. Unless some new and serious management takes over.

​

I would be really thankful to you guys if you can recommend another similar game. Thanks!

It's honestly very sad that our favorite games have been replaced with money-grabbing multiplayer alternatives

by basicbreeze943. Posted on Aug 10, 2020


Some of the best games ever created have been replaced with multiplayer alternatives that are honestly nothing more than a terrible cash grab. Let me give you some examples

Elder scrolls: Oblivion was an absolute masterpiece that immersed you in a massive world with so many questions NPCs, and allows you to get lost in a fantasy world. Skyrim continue this trend, and although the storyline was much more water down and far less impressive, was still great. Elder scrolls online, however, is a cheap cash grab. New players starting out in Western sky room, with almost no direction, no plot, nothing to suggest what you are working Torrance. The combat is absolutely terrible, and it doesn't feel like a fantasy game at all. You are constantly spammed with stupid crap about their in-game store and why you should buy their crowns. absolute disgrace. The story doesn't feel like a medieval game at all, it feels like a very fast paced repetitive grind to kill things in a very pretty environment. Just a true waste of time and effort from everyone involved

Fallout: The idea of entering into a world where everything is dirty, destroyed, and a shadow of the world we know today, and the people that have survived and made a life in this world, is so fascinating and thrilling. but they had to ruin this by making an online version of fallout set in the backwoods area of West Virginia, the most racist state in the United States of America, and God, is it bad. The storyline, terribly written and hard to believe. The lack of any human NPC's makes it unfun and doesn't make it feel like any previous fallout game. Fallout 4 made it difficult for us to care about any of the factions because they were poorly written as well and weren't really that interesting. But Jesus, at least they had some humans to even care about. this game since launch hasn't had any humans, just a bunch of random enemies running around like some bad guy simulator. This is what the next generation of fallout is? Dear Lord, we traded down big-time. We could have had fallout Seattle, fallout Miami, fallout 3 remake... They gave us the absolute worst thing ever

Destiny: This is the successor of Halo. don't care what they say, or that it's not even related to the Halo storyline, it's the next space shooter. The storyline is just bad. You wake up as someone who has forgotten their past and has no memory of it, are introduced to the light, the power that courses through you and makes you basically a superhero. But that's where the story just about end. You just run around and kill things shoot things and loot tons of crap items that you just destroy anyway. Anything worth actually obtaining is obtained through the in game store which requires you to purchase silver for real life money. you will not find any good-looking armor or anything at all without purchasing silver. All customizations, new mounts, anyting. Vehicles, etc. All purchase for money. The absolute minimum amount of effort was put into this game and the developers get angry at us because they overwork themselves to provide us with a third of the contact you would normally have in a regular game. If destiny's was a single player game designed like Halo, with online multiplayer capability, it would be 1,000 times better than it is today. But instead, it's just a crap looter shooter in which you get this massive online world with 10 other people with you at any given time, and you just kill weak little enemies and collect crap loot that you can just destroy.

Warcraft: instead of getting Warcraft 4, we got world of Warcraft. It was great until about cataclysm, and then took a huge dive downward. As of today it's a game plagued with tryhard incels who spew racist remarks, insults, and other obscenities at people who don't want to put in at least 40 to 50 hours a week just to be able to be average at the game. It is absolutely necessary to put in at least 50 hours a week if you have any intention of participating in any game. Which is the only thing to do anyway because the leveling is incredibly boring and devoid of any life or fun. It was fun when it was a brand new world with so much to explore and see. But after making your 29th character, there's absolutely nothing fun or interesting about this game at all. We really traded down. They should have ended this game 10 years ago and just given us Warcraft 4. Instead, they kept the game going to milk it as long as they possibly could like their own star Cash cow, and also gave us Warcraft 3 reforged, a game that hardly even works and is literally the worst rated Blizzard game of all time because of the fact that it's just such a scam. the original Warcraft 3 works better than the Warcraft 3 reforged there's no way to get a refund, there's no compensation for them putting absolutely no effort or planning into this game to get it to actually work the way they promised it would.

These are just some of the most personal examples to me. But as you can see, based on everything mentioned list, these are some of the best game series we have ever played, and now they have crap money grab multiple are alternatives and have ruined all of these games for us permanently

Lvl 1000 Collectors Aegis

by RedditChumly. Posted on Aug 10, 2020


So I was wondering how claiming the 1/5th replica collectors aegis works. So a few questions:

1.When can we order it/ get it?

2.How do we get it? (As in do you receive a message via steam, or do we have to go to a link to claim it)

How does claiming it work? (Do we just link our steam account and then put in our shipping address and wait for it to arrive or is their more to the process)

Thanks for all the help :)

How safe is it to give someone a child account?

by LickMopWho. Posted on Aug 10, 2020


If I make a new account (and name it “DummyAccount123” for example), give it a different password than all of my other ones, and then tell a friend the gamertag + password, will I be all good?

I have no desire to ever get that DummyAccount123 back. There’s no way for that friend to somehow access my main account/payment options, right?

I need a replacement controller but hate to drop the money on an Xbox One controller when Series X is right around the corner. I know the improvements are minimal but I would still prefer have it, are the chances about zero that they will be available ahead of the console launch?

Why does the Valve Hardware Survey collect MAC address hash and disk serial number hash?

by njtrafficsignshopper. Posted on Aug 10, 2020


Opened Steam just now, and was asked to participate in the survey, as happens periodically. Most of the info is about your hardware specs, but the last two entries are these two: MAC address hash, and *disk serial number hash.

What's the relevance of those for a hardware survey? I understand that both of them are hashed, so they don't reveal the actual numbers used to generate the hash. But they also don't reveal anything useful in aggregate about my hardware setup, in the way that knowing what operating system or graphics card I'm using does.

The only thing I can think of is that they would indicate when I've changed computers or swapped out other hardware from my current machine. But this is a lot more personal than the other info it collects, which seems to be aggregate.
