Liquid :O

Sounds like the 4 man core is staying together tho, just making their own org.

on 13 September 2019

I think the whole squad is staying together and is doing the Alliance / Secret thing.
But I wonder what squad Liquid will sign...

I'm so glad that you will become an NS owner thanks to NS lite.

To which Nintendo games are you interested in, if any?

Might, not will - haven't made a decision either way yet!

Games that interest me - Mario Odyssey, NSMUD, and Donkey Kong, Pokemon Sword/Shield would be on my 'definitely buy' list. Then games like Kirby, Yoshi, Mario + Rabbids would be on my maybe list.

on 14 July 2019

Oh, then I haven't really perceived your gaming tastes...
Is it because of saving money for Gen 9 Xbox?

on 17 July 2019

No, I doubt I'll be getting the next Xbox. I will probably get a PS5 a few years after it launches. It all depends on the games though and Sony continuing to put effort into developing a strong exclusive line-up.

The Switch Lite interests me because I've always liked Nintendo's handhelds but not the home consoles. It also seems to take the best of the Vita (nice big screen, almost home console quality games but in portable form), but without the worst bits (namely Sony's unwillingness to support it with games and the Vita's lack of big Western titles post-launch).

As for my gaming tastes - 90% of my gaming time is spent playing just one game. Back in the PS2 era that was Diablo II. Nowadays it's Dota 2. Other games tend to be temporary but enjoyable distractions for me; they generally lack depth and end-game content, but they're fun self-contained experiences that I'll complete and then move on.

Matumbaman :(

Woah wtf. But they recently got 2nd at a Major and qualified to TI :( I wanted them to stay together at least until the end of TI. Changing just before TI is so dangerous...

End of an era :(

on 13 June 2019

Maybe it just wasn't enough for them after losing to Gambit at ESL. I have no idea who they would recruit now. They need a strong carry that can also take punishment to give Miracle space. I don't think there are many good candidates out there.

hey. Sorry for the slow response. And yes it's definitely been a long time. I never really left though. I log in every once in a while.

That's a lot of titles on your avatar. What have you been up to?

No worries, just thought I'd say hi while I was in the same thread you'd replied to.

Been busy recently sorting out funeral arrangements and related stuff lately, unfortunately.

on 10 June 2019

My sincerest condolences

on 11 June 2019

Thank you. It's a very surreal thing to go through.

You need a taller avatar, on forum pages we can't see all your badges!

Talon ruined it by making me a Beta Tester :(

on 02 May 2019

Oh wait, I forgot! He made it so you can remove individual banners.

on 02 May 2019

That's better!

Woo, earned one of my favourites - http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/assets/badge-images/badge-1-6-4.jpg

Our last ever retail SW charts go up tomo. Must say I'll be relieved to not have to do them any more.

Unfortunately the new system probably won't be ready to go live tomo (added some difficult workload for Talon during testing, so not sure when we'll be going live).

I am happy that this huge work load is of your back.
Thank you for being as good as possible on track with the software charts.
I could imagine that you sometimes needed a lot of will power to move on doing the charts.

on 31 January 2019

Thank you :)

And yes it did, though I would've carried on with them if it were viable; I just don't think it is anymore.

The new system won't make up for it but I'm glad we're moving from estimates to reporting official stats.

< XD84 posted something on Machina's wall:

I was wondering when you newly publish the shipped numbers, will those be published on a weekly basis?

Nope, they'll be added on a continuing basis. You'll be able to keep track of the uploads via a new box we're adding to the front page,

We're already adding shipments to the db (myself, TrunksWD and Marth) and hope to have the database nicely fleshed out ready for the switchover at the end of January.

So many banners!

So many site jobs!

Yeah, that doesn't sound as cool

I'll have to answer you here because it seems I can't reply on my own damn wall.

Thank you for the link. I figured some users would raise the question about the PoGo situation but couldn't find the proper forum. Sorry for the bother.

Keep up your tremendous work.
