Because it's glorious?
I'll add it as a thread icon but trying to keep fan of icons to mostly sports stuff for now
Are eSports not on TBS and ESPN these days GoodForAnother ? Those teams are sponsored with salaries.
GFA I'm only 63% srs
Also, this is how Trump got elected.
And it's not even close.
this is a p tite thread icon
Proof that WWE is a sport.
Thanks for the icon GoodForAnother
That and all of the other board improvements. The site has had some great upgrades this year.
it's been fun, been enjoying learning about and deploying the backend stuff especially. the new themes and icons and shit are cool but I enjoy the performance tweaks. Knownhost has been fantastic. in the last few weeks we've
- switched from apache to litespeed
- switched from mysql to mariadb
- installed memcached and opcache for script and query caching and upgraded to php7
- had a pro tweak the mariadb settings for optimal database response
- installed elasticsearch to replace sql search (shitty for 11 million posts)
page generation is now running from 0.02 to 0.06 seconds on average and I have straight A's on webpagetest. been a lot of fun to get the speed improved. about the only thing we can do at this point is switch to an SSD, but really no need at these speeds.
I demand an ESPORTS fan of icon
yeah i think an esports icon is a bit different than console war icons. let us have one please!
Winter Sale starts tomorrow. So excite.
It really depends. Odin do you like your mouse surface to be plastic and slick or cloth? What DPI is the setting on your mouse? If it's high, hard/slick is fine, if it's low like mine, I prefer cloth.
I own a previous model of the G240 and love it:
The hard/slick combo is the G440:
Are our amazon links no bueno?
400 dps 4 lyfe
Wow. I'm impressed. I would go with the hard surface then. That pointer is moving every time your heart beats.
Nah, in game sensitivity is always verrrrry low. I'll move to 800 for some things but going too low is rough for a lot of shit when using 2560x1440.
I bought both and returned the one I didn't want.
So far getting Europa Universalis 4 and Shadowrun Hong Kong.
Debating on Inside (expect bigger discounts later), CoH Tales of Valor, Kentucky Route Zero, 8-Bit Armies, Orwell, Xcom 2, Everspace, and some others.
got doom through the sale. holy shit, this game is intense.
Picked that up, first time I entered a classic Doom level I was hooked.
I still find myself buying and playing too many console games.
Bought all of the Assassins Creed games from Uplay this morning, with my Uplay coins and the discounts, it was around 50 for all of them, including DLCs. They gave Assassins Creed 3 as a freebie for the month of December.
2017 will be the year I become a PC gamer I think.
building a system or buying one?
I want to build one but for now I may just buy a starter then expand on it down the road.
Can't encourage you enough to build your own, you will save money, get the components you want, and be better set up for upgrading later.
EDIT - Not sure if cost or the actual building process is your main concern, but its a lot easier to control cost on your own build. and enough of us here have done our own to help you build, plus there's great info online.
which brings me to a question I've been pondering.
ATM 2 kids, wife and work have me leaning to a prefab setup. That could change though, I've been looking at PC Parts builder as a guide. It doesn't look hard at all, just being prepared.
if you're prepared, a simple lower-budget setup would maybe take an hour and a half to two hours, and could save you anywhere from $100-$300 depending on how much you want to put into it.
it seems like a daunting task at first for sure, but there are some really good youtube channels out there that have great build guides (carey holzman and pauls hardware were probably the two most helpful for me)
yep, i know that feeling.
Logical Increments is a great website for parts comparison as well, that was what I used the most when building the two I've done this year.
Really like how they recommend parts for different levels of systems, makes it real easy to see where you can skimp on one component if you want to go hard on another one.
deciding on whether to go team "red" or "blue" has been the most daunting task. I'll save some $$ on AMD but is Intel really better? APU over grafx card? I've been a console guy forever but I'm not digging the last gen of systems and it's clear that Consoles have to now play catch up to PC.
Depends on what you want to play honestly, if you are an MMORPG or RTS gamer, you won't need as much graphics power.
If you want to play the latest games at max settings, or VR, you need as much raw power as possible.
Intel is better for higher levels of power, and if you are running applications that need/utilize hyper threading. AMD is just as good if you don't need quite as much power and want the cost savings.
AMD does hyper threading too, but prevailing wisdom is that Intel does it better.
got this on Black Friday. super fun and addictive, but I'm not very good at it yet.
AMD for a laptop
Intel for a gaming PC
I used to be AMD then I got a Sandy Bridge 2600 when they first came out. It's still powering my gaming desktop to this day.
Have you gotten into XCOM 2 yet? I'm debating whether to buy it during this sale.
I bought it a while back. Great game, amazing reviews, but it didn't hook me like others have. It's my first turn based strategy game like that though, so maybe it's the genre.
Graphics, format, squad customization are all great and very fun
I just picked up Total War - Warhammer. First TW game, it's fantastic so far.
have that on my wishlist, figured with my backlog i can wait for it to come down in price more. Looks like a blast though, every other TW game I've played is fantastic.
been playing Deux Ex: Human Revolution that i bought like 3 years ago. it's pretty cool. playing through this game as pure stealth would be a pain in the ass.
way old but i saw it last night for the first time and it slayed me. bunnyhopping before it was fixed in cs:source was challenging but doable if you practiced a bit. doing it like this guy is insane.
i've never seen the appeal of these pc shooters with butthole tier graphics
Which games are you referring to
cs and arma are the first that come to mind
this is one of my favorite videos on the internet. bhop is too fucking hard on cs go.
'i honestly hope this kid dies in his sleep tonight'
cs go might not have amazing graphics, but the appeal is more in the gameplay than anything. i love the strategy and learning curve.
