mtg, game design
in any other game design, a costly multi-$-pay-per-attempt format where 4/5ths of your time are spent being brutally punished for your mistakes in the first fifth, where the mechanics of those 4/5ths only provided pretty limited* information about your mistakes in the first fifth would be regarded as a failure, and yet here we are with MtG and draft
props to people passing me Cavalier of Flame in M20 draft for losing that tournament right there and then in a format that rewarded temur elementals heavily despite the triple pip
sorry: in Eldraine _and_ Core Set 2020. Those Cavaliers full of delicious devotion were signaling things from a mile away.
me: *sees 2- and 3-pip cards in Eldraine* We’re going back to Theros baybeee
me also: *sees pseudo-ninjutsu being seeded in Standard* holy shit is Kamigawa happening holy shit
Lo spazio 20092 non si vende
Una serata benefit di solidarietà con lo Spazio 20092 - occupazione abitativa (r)esistente da più di 6 anni in città dove attualmente vivono oltre 50 persone - e di supporto alla Brigata di solidarietà popolare "Lorenzo Orsetti".
Attualmente lo spazio di via T. Cremona 10 è sotto minaccia di vendita da parte del Tribunale di Monza: nei mesi scorsi è iniziata una campagna anti-sgombero per ribadire che la solidarietà sociale e le vite delle persone non si possono mettere all'asta. Sabato 18 riprendiamo con una serata aperta al territorio.
Musica e libera socialità:
dalle 20 apertura dello Spazio
dalle 22 concerto live di Fulco
most of the time in my experience the person isn't even aware they're using guilt to silence you, they just do it because it works and they won't usually notice any consequences for it - of course, the consequences are still there. The other person still got hurt and they will definitely reassess how safe their friend or family member is to be around, and they might be more inclined to just not say anything in future and and let some space grow in the relationship because the result is the same either way
I feel like this must be generally true of people when they do shitty things out of privilege and it impacts someone they care about, transphobia is just a case I can personally speak to. No one who cares about a trans person wants to feel like a transphobe, and when that person says 'hey that was kinda fucked up' the immediate instinct is to wish you hadn't done it. Guilt-tripping someone to take back their call-in is the next best thing to make it feel like you didn't hurt them
game and incentive design
I now have an incentive to NOT play any game of Magic on Arena until Thursday because all XP I would accrue between now and then would go on the AFR Mastery track and be lost after rotation.
I purposefully cleared out my dailies (and will reroll all 500 gold ones during the pause) so that I lose only one during the break.
transgender anarchist homestead alpaca commune successfully defends itself from militias thanks to the power of solidarity, mutual aid, and comrades with rifles willing to shoot nazis. documentary upcoming!
content notes for animal rights: the alpacas are used for wool, but they're rescues and seem to be well-treated. there is talk of animals as livestock and potential food.
Beg post. Need food. Please boost.
I can't keep making beg post like this but i don't know else to do. My mom doesn't feed me and i have no money for food. I go starving and I'm underweight. Anything helps. And if you need to donate another way let me know. Thank you 💖
I have, in fact, ignored him on purpose.
