WiFi issue

by DiedAtBirthMaybe. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

I’m on wireless WiFi and every time I try to connect it says “Can’t connect with a static IP address” does anyone know what this means and how to fix it? It tells me to unplug my router and try again in 30 seconds but I do not have access to the router

Old XB gamer, am I the only one waiting for hands-on experience to decide whether to stick with the XB line or switch to PS?

by sam7on. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

So my whole gaming (and my kid’s) are on XB since the 360 time and I really like the whole thing specially UX and pretty comfortable with it. I’ve also got many chances navigating my local gaming dealer’s PS4 and wasn’t the least satisfied compared to the hype I kept getting about how great the PlayStation was being marketed (PS: for those who don’t know PS dominates the Middle East market by far and most of the time my gaming buddies are cross continents).

So here I don’t really care about exclusive or not rather I like enjoying a game time after long days of work or just chilling in the weekend with my kid gaming (we have distributed the XB consoles to be able to play together). With that in mind, switching to PS5 means insane cost (two consoles + purchase new line of games and accessories ) and I’m not willing to take that step then just be disappointed again like with the PS4 unless I try both next-gen consoles hands-on at the local dealer (this option is available at launch ) then decide whether the cost is justified or I would better plan upgrading to Series X in next couple of years.

I’ve seen and read many reviews and comparisons with speculation and all the events by both companies so far and some seemed way biased based on different pov.

Genuinely curious: Is this a common approach for getting nextgen console here too? Do you share the same skepticism or you just made up your mind for a specific console already and why?

Has there been any word on if games playable on both Xbox One and Series X using smart delivery will be two different set of achievements? Similar to how 360 games had separate achievements from Xbox One.

by Bobaaganoosh. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

I read recently some games will use the ‘smart delivery system’ meaning you won’t have to buy certain games twice. Has there been any talk about if there’ll be two different set of achievements or do you just continue normally with your progression?

Just an example, AC: Black Flag came out on 360 and Xbox One. If you had the game on 360, that was one set of achievements and progression, and vice versa for Xbox One.

Can you throw infinitely in low priority?

by vaporspacevoid. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

I got reported 8 times for feeding in UNRANKED, just because I wanted to try out and learn a new hero (Morphling).


So I'm pretty fucking pissed off that Chinese stacks got me low priority for no reason.


Can I throw infinitely in low prio? Since there are no reports here.

Problem with 4k MMR Dota

by maerawow. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

Just finished playing a game with 1 pick pos 5 Tinker, a Pos 3 Wraith King and mid LC. I have no fucking idea what is wrong with these idiots who think that this draft will even work. The worst part is the enemy QOP(who was playing pos 4) said it is fine to play tinker pos 5. Like all these 3 heroes are so item dependent, who is going to make plays around the Map.

I don't know how hard it is to understand for people that there is difference in playing a ultra item dependent hero as hard support. What do tinker even do in a game like he can't scale his 3 skill that will just push the lane and absorb the carry farm, skill 1 and 2 for what nuke. How is a tinker even playable without early BoT. Only good thing is that you can have that burst damage early game to nuke some paper supports like Lion, CM or Shaman but after 15 minutes when everyone has a base HP of 1200, it's utter garbage. Your tinker is just like a walking creep with base movement < 350 and just trying to farm some creep camps because there is nothing a tinker can accomplish in the game now.

Also, this is not only about this single game, people pick like some of the most bizarre heroes which don't fit the role as support. i once had a pos 4 slark in my game. I don't know what to do at that very moment and this is all in 4k MMR bracket. That feels like people have lost their brain completely.

I guess this is not much to ask to pick a support when you role queue for Hard support but people make it so difficult. Just had to conclude every trash in SEA thinks he is Miracle/RTZ and can make any hero work when reality is that they are just another below average players who need their team to win but no they will fucking ruin 40 minutes of other player who just wanted to play a good game and have some equal chance of winning the game when match starts.

SEA is filled with 0 IQ players.

What are some types of missions that are strangely prevalent in games and how would you improve them?

by Henzapper. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

Hey all,

I wanted to get your thoughts on a topic that came to mind when I was playing Ghost of Tsushima recently. I noticed there are certain missions that show up in a surprising amount of games, despite never seeing anyone talk about liking them. The two types of missions I'm thinking of are:

  • Tailing missions, where you have to follow someone without being seen. The fail condition is usually either getting noticed by the target, or losing track of them. (Examples: Ghost of Tsushima, some of the Assassin's Creed games, Judgment/Judge Eyes, Marvel's Spider-Man)

  • Missions where you're riding in a car with a gun, and while an NPC drives you have to shoot several vehicles that are pursuing you. Fail condition is usually your car taking too much damage or not being able to destroy enough vehicles by a certain time. (Examples: Uncharted 4, some of the Assassin's Creed games, Yakuza 0, Metal Gear Solid 4, Cyberpunk 2077 based on gameplay previews)

I never see anyone speak highly of these types of missions, and yet they are surprisingly common. Do you guys like them? If these missions are here to stay, what are some ways you think they can be improved? And what are some other types of missions where you don't understand how they're so common?

Will moving install location move all files or upcoming files?

by Exotic_Disk. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

I moved csgo and I have files in both the moved drive and the old drive. Did it just copy the data occupying twice the storage, meaning I installed the game twice kinda?

Buntd, Beedrill Generation 6 &amp; 7 strat!!!

by BolderoffBros. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

I'm pretty amateur when it comes to movesets. This moveset is for in game only, not tournament quality


Nickname: Buntd,

Pokemon: Beedrill

Item: Assault Vest - Sp. Def 1.5x, but can only do damage moves

Ability: Swarm - At 1/3 HP, Atk gets 1.5x for Bug moves


- Poison Jab (Atk 90) or Sludge Bomb (Sp. Atk 45)

- U-turn - Absolutely needed but do you think Arin would even consider it? It swaps Buntd, without wasting a turn AND is effected by swarm 1.5x. If not this then Venoshock - Doubles when enemy is poisened (Sp. Atk 45)

- X-Scissor - Bug move 70 power, Swarm 1.5x

- Brick Break - Breaks screens and is effective against Rock, one of Bugs weaknesses.

About abandon penalty

by bundle1999. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

Anyone knows how abandon penalty works these days?? I used to get abandon and my ban time raised to 14 hours. I played 1 month clean games without abandons and got 10k behaviour score many times. Yesterday I got abandon because of pc crashing and saw that my ban time hasn't changed. Is this time gonna increase forever or what?

Gold to ultimate

by FrigoInutile. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

Maybe this is a dumb question but im afraid of losing my 12 months gold so i think it's better to ask first before making mistakes. I got this 12 months gold subscription activated but i wanna buy one month of game pass ultimate, if i buy it, i will end up with 13 months of game pass ultimate or my gold subscription will be converted like for example: 12 months of gold to 4 of game pass ultimate? Just wanna know if it's safe, and why not, even helpful to buy game pass during my gold subscription or not.

Changed my Gamertag, shows old one

by wstdgrn. Posted on Aug 10, 2020

About a week ago i decided to change to gamertag to something fancy since xbox now allows us to use characters from different alphabets. Little did i know that most games (maybe not even one game?) supports this new system. Fortnite supports all possible characters, but even here it shows the old gamertag.

I just wanted to change my gamertag, because i don't like it anymore. But now it seems like i changed it vainly. Is there a way to change the old gamertag and safe the new one? Don't want to spend 10$ again just to have the same problem again.
