2023.05.29 08:25 RedSkyNL Is it normal that my S5 battery drains like 10% a day without even touching the bike?

I mean, we also have a Cortina eBike to bring the kids to school and that one literally lasts like 2 weeks, and yet the battery of my S5 is draining near 10% a day without me even touching the bike...

2023.05.29 08:25 ArtificiaIgod It’s time to say goodbye

I’ve been playing the game now for nearly 2 years and I’ve had an enormous amount of fun playing but with the introduction of the Premium Tree Chest and how you earn it has massively spoilt the experience for me.
I don’t mind the game having leader boards on the events. I didn’t even mind the “extra rewards” players got the higher they rank because they was just that “extra rewards” I could still get the same content as every other players, all be much less of.
What I don’t like is the “exclusive” content for placing 1st or 2nd in the events, something I and many others will never achieve.
The reason this game was so great is that if you play long enough you will “get there” with the current Premium Tree Chest I will always have missing content that from no fault of my own I’ll never be able to achieve and I hate that and if I can’t play to achieve everything then what’s the point?
I wish you all the best of luck. I will keep checking back to see if things have changed. Until then fair well.

2023.05.29 08:24 Sensitive_Citron3543 Receiving email from ex PwBPD *trigger warning abuse

Received an email 3 months after getting my things *trigger warning abuse
I left my PwBPD in November 22 a month or so after an episode where they physically abused me while drunk. It was excruciating beyond what I imagined. A part of me was afraid to leave because I knew they would blow up every part of our relationship and take any nice memories I had and poison them with pain. And oh damn did they ever. They verbally abused me and all my friends. Blamed me for EVERYTHING. Lied about me to all our mutuals. Used my history of childhood trauma against me. Just totally squashed the person I fell in love with. I felt so ashamed and embarrassed. I felt so betrayed that they became the very person my friends and family warned me about, the person that for 3 years they gaslit me into not seeing. There was times our relationship was literal heaven on earth. The romance, the attention, the softness the care. During these times though I did everything in my power to hold on to this. Including betray myself by not seeing my friends, or calming them down from talks of suicide because I didn’t reply for an our on a night with my sister. I kept it all so quiet so no one knew what was really happening. Not the waking me up and screaming in my face for me to give them vodka and pills at 3am, or the random switch in behaviour in the Uber home after being with friends that I was a slut and had no values. In the end keeping things a secret only hurt me and enabled them.
I only got my bed and things back from them two months ago. It was hell getting my stuff back. And I had to block them on most things due to near constant harassment.
But I’ve received an email from them essentially floating the idea of being in contact, telling me they have grown and wishing me well. There was no apology or acknowledgment of what they have done and no accountability. Is this email some trap or have they actually made progress??
This whole experience has been deeply traumatic but I’m trying to learn to trust myself and my thoughts again.
I am still grieving the loss of the loving partner he was - whether that was real or not
Reading through this group makes me feel less alone. Love to you all ❤️‍🩹

2023.05.29 08:24 ilikemoney9999 What's up with this Anxiety

I've been clean from a nearly 20 year addiction for about 6 weeks(ish) now (I don't know my exact quit date - when I quit I never knew what day of the week it was!) and at times I feel like I'm happy, almost normal?
Other times I am extremely, extremely anxious to the point where I feel like I'm just crazy and I feel bad for driving my husband crazy. We just took a long trip to see relatives and the entire time I felt varying degrees of anxiety over leaving my 6 cats with a cat sitter for 9 days. The cat sitter checked in daily while we were gone. She sent updates about the cats - she actually stayed overnight in the house with the cats and she did nothing wrong. She's a great cat sitter!
Towards the end of the trip I tried to hide it but the anxiety I felt was... just I can't even describe. I have no children and these cats mean a great deal to me. I tried to act normal but at times relatives would ask if I'm OK or if I was having a good time. Every time I was asked this - I was just fretting about the cats but not verbalizing my concerns because deep down I felt like I was acting crazy inside and my fears were completely unjustified.
I had nightmares about coming home to an empty house with no cats. On the drive to the airport to go home my husband helped me by turning on the radio and I'd sing along to songs so I'd have to think about music instead of these cat concerns.
When I got home I couldn't take it anymore. It was an hour drive from the airport home and I felt physically ill in the car. I told myself hundreds of times - they are OK. When we got home I saw 3 of the 6 right away, then two more but my favorite lil fatty cat was hiding. I couldn't find him for 30 mins. He usually runs out right away. I had a panic attack. I was crying. I called my cat sitter and she is an angel, she acted like crazy people call her with cat anxiety all the time and she said very calming words and calmed me down.
As she was assuring me she did a cat count before she left (this probably sounds so ridiculous to people with real children but these fears felt so intense for me) my husband came out carrying lil fatty cat and I just cried tears of joy. I literally hugged that kitty crying (no wonder he hides from me).
Now it's hours later. 1AM. I should be asleep but I'm up going over all this wondering what the heck is wrong with me? All this worrying and drama for nothing. I need advice.
Should I go see a doctor and try to get on some kind of medication? I feel the way I'm acting is not normal. Is my brain just messed up because I'm off the dope? When I was doing dope I was at times a bit anxious but more like what I'd consider anxious over normal things that were more valid concerns. Actually when I began using meth one benefit I saw was I felt numbed to things I'd normally worry about and felt I was helping my anxiety by taking it. Now I realize it has been harmful in so many other ways and doesn't even work the way it once did to reduce my anxiety.
Should I just give myself more clean time? If I do go to the doctor do I tell them about my addiction or just that I'm anxious and tell them the crazy stuff about the cats (this is just one example - there are other issues I worry about but I've already written a novel here)?
Lastly has anyone experienced stuff like this and does anyone have tips on what might help? I'm going to try to get sleep now but will check back and thanks in advance if you took the time to look through all this. I won't go back to using but I don't want to feel like this any more over stupid stuff.

2023.05.29 08:24 Sptfe Help! WFH job and too many options

Hi! Im a recent college grad whose job will be online and Im really struggling to commit to a city to move to. I started researching cities months ago at this point but the each time I start doing a deep dive into a city I just get filled with dread over how big the decision is. I’m not in a huge rush to move and I have the money to visit 1 or 2 cities right now, but I need some help making a decision or else I’ll never get this done lol. Im not very well traveled so Im not actually 100% certain that I know what my ideal city would have, but this is what I imagine myself liking.
Another alternative that Im not too fond of is that I can stay with my parents rent free for a little while and use the money I would have spent on rent to explore more places. My parents are still strict even though Im an adult so this would mean sacrificing a lot of freedom and my social life

2023.05.29 08:23 WaveLoss Relationship Advice

I'll preface this with the fact that I'm bi and this is my first gay relationship so I have no frame of reference for this stuff.
The first few months were great. We met on an app surprisingly. When you first start dating someone you both play it cool and we were also both busy.
Then they asked to make it official and I was so stoked...but I've noticed this pattern where if I make plans with them outside of the seemingly allotted one day a week, they end up cancelling.
Then we just stopped having's been a month, maybe more... I brought all of this up with them and they said they felt like it is on them to ask me to hangout but it's literally 50/50 chance they cancel on me day of when I ask. It was what discouraged me from asking. They have since cancelled a sleepover (only one this month) and the time before that. When we actually went on a date I laid my head on them and tried to cuddle and they didn't even seem interested...
Is this whole thing beyond salvageable? I work nearly 50 hours a week and I always make time for people and things. I want to break up with them but the thought of dating again also sounds awful.
Blah blah blah, thanks for reading.

2023.05.29 08:22 Due_Buy4044 Going blind and I feel horrible.

I adopted an amazing GSD mix in September of 2022. She was brought to the city shelter because she had pannus ( an auto immune disorder) and they couldn’t afford the medication. She was an outside only dog, and looked it,and anyway they had other dogs so didn’t want her. The shelter sent me home with ointment for her eyes. After seeing my vet and a veterinary ophthalmologist, two drops were prescribed to help slow the progression of the disease. Pannus is not a painful condition. The problem is, I live by myself and even after 9 months I haven’t been able to train her to hold still enough to administer the drops. It took 3 people to hold her at the ophthalmologist or vet to look in her eyes. I imagine that this was similar to what happened at the shelter and she just has trauma from it.
I have probably gotten 20 drops in an eye since we started. She is a brilliant dog, excelled at her obedience classes and Canine Good Citizen classes and is just wonderful, except she will probably go blind. I haven’t given up yet and am going back to square one for her to be ok with me holding her muzzle firmly before bringing the dropper bottle anywhere near her face. But I just feel so bad that I can’t reason with her and let her know there is a reason I’m being mean to her. I’ve tried everything and am doing my best to not be frustrated. Thanks for listening and keep your fingers crossed for progress.

2023.05.29 08:21 jmrkiwi Anyone have experience moving to Germany with a Washington Accord Accredited Degree?

I am completing my fourth year of engineering at the University of Auckland New Zealand and want to move to Germany in the near future; I am a dual NZ-German citizen fluent in both English and German.
This will leave me with a Bachelor's Degree with Honours in Mechanical Engineering.
This degree basically qualifies me for most engineering-related jobs in NZ and is accredited by the Washington Accord Internationally through Engineering New Zealand.
From what I understand, there is no direct equivalent degree in Germany.
You either take a 3 Year Bachelor's Degree (First Cycle) or a 3 year Bachelor's plus a 1.5-2 year master's programme (second cycle).
I am looking at working in the field of composites for Aerospace, Automotive or Marine Engineering in R&D and development.

2023.05.29 08:20 Selector_ShaneLBC What are some good starter co2 setups?

I’m interested in investing in a c02 setup for a 15gal nano tank. As I’ve learned, co2 setups are both complex and expensive. So, I’m asking what are some recommendations for good starter kits for small sized tanks?
I tried the Neo yeast kit already and did not like it for a number of reasons. It doesn’t last nearly as long a advertised, gets messy and does not have a consistent flow(no way to control it).
Fluval used to have a cool c02 mini canister kit, but it’s been long discontinued.
Leaves me with no choice but to aim for a more complex setup. Suggestions? Thanks!

So free guy is one of my favourite movies and near the end {Spoilers} the scene where the world gets like turned into dust and destroyed guy and buddy are running across the bridge and they get seperated and buddy has his speech about "i have always been scared my whole life, now im not, this has been the best day of my life. Get to that build, show them we matter" that whole speech bit with the running just made me cry, i have no clue why. Like its not overly sad, so no clue why i cried.

2023.05.29 08:17 KelTekYoungGun1 Anyone ever notice that the Steam Deck has an audio issue when running Emudeck?

So I was playing some games on emulationstation and noticed that everytime I have the volume turned up all the way it seems like my left speaker is about to bust. It will randomly make a popping sound like a speaker is blown out. Kind of like in a car or something, kind of hard to explain. Anyone else have this issue? I don't notice nearly as much when playing regular games in my steam library, besides maybe dead cells. And if you are aware of one, could you maybe point me to a potential fix I can do? My deck runs completely fine despite that one little nitpick.

2023.05.29 08:15 _dillydAlli_ The First “I Love You”

Hi, lovely humans of wholesome!
I’ve got a story about the first time my partner and I told each other the big ole I love you :)
So, he took me to the riverside near our campus. He packed a whole picnic and brought a speaker and the vibes were ✨✨✨ so magic✨✨✨and I could tell. I could TELL he was gonna say it. I was enjoyin some cheese cubes and he was all nervous.
Anyway. We packed up the picnic as the sun was setting to go meet some friends. He told me he was nervous and didn’t want to rush me (we’d been dating for two months at that point) but, he loved me. I was a whole human puddle and I said that I loved him too.
All in all, a beautiful moment. But the icing on the cake: when we got back to the car, he gave me a hug. A stranger in the car nearby rolled down his window and screamed “I LOVE LOVE.”
He had no idea what a big moment we had just shared as a couple, and his excitement brought us so much joy. His simple, plain excitement for a sweet moment. He’ll never know that he became a little part of a story that spanned for years to come. ♥️
Your words travel with the people around you. Love well and love always:)
I’d love to hear about the first time y’all told someone you loved them. Please share!!

2023.05.29 08:15 Lucky_6464 BRAWLCAP BSC 2023: Mid-Season Regional Power Rankings

Hey everyone! Welcome to the Brawlcap BSC 2023 Mid-Season Power Rankings. We are halfway done with the season and we have seen a lot of tough competition in the last three months and I think it's fair to judge where each team deserves to be placed right now. Before we get into the rankings I just want to let you all know that I did make some changes on how many teams will be in the Power Rankings for each subregion. Here are the changes I made.
-SEA & India will list the Top 3 teams
-EMEA will list the Top 12 teams, but I will only list the Top 10 teams for now since only 10 teams have qualified for the Monthly Finals so far this year.
-SA East/West and NA East/West will list the Top 5 Teams.
I also have a BSC Top 25 Global Power Rankings prepared for you guys when this post goes live. Reminder that these power rankings are only taken from BSC events and no events outside of BSC so the Mobile Masters event that happened earlier this month will not count towards these rankings. I think you are going to be pretty surprised on who I have ranked in each spot. I will be doing these after every single Monthly Final from now on until the end of the season.
Also disclaimer that I actually made these Power Rankings a while back and we've had some roster changes recently and some teams that disbanded that will now not be on this list. I apologize for getting this out super late, but at least I got it out before the start of the next Championship Challenge.
Now without further ado, let's get ranking!


Tier 1: Solid Contender Tier 2: LCQ Contender
Rank Team Name Tier BSC Points Movement
1 Team Flash 1 318 0
2 Rising Sun SEA 1 228 0
3 BYE 2 152 +1
Team Flash are just unstoppable! They have won three straight Monthly Finals and are looking like they could easily qualify for the LCQ. Everything was going great for them, until they made some roster changes and let some players go. Out of nowhere, they let go two players on the team in Response and Prime leaving Hiroshii and X9Kay as the only two members left on the team. Even more bad news, wigglyspoo was also released from the team. I don't know why exactly they let those three go, but I feel like this might haunt them in the near future. Who's going to join them now? I guess we'll find out soon, but I feel like this was a questionable decision. Rising Sun SEA also look pretty strong as they managed to place 2nd in every Monthly Final so far this year and they have a pretty solid lead as well. However, this did come at the cost of losing pro player Bearbear to retirement, but they did manage to find a solid replacement in Meow who has played pretty well. Despite the roster change I think they should be fine.
BYE is easily the 3rd best team in this region, but I see them in a completely different tier until they make it to a Monthly Final. They moved up in these rankings mostly due to Umbrella Reforged failing to even qualify for Top 8 this month, but unless Rising Sun SEA falls apart, I expect them to stay in this spot for the remainder of the year.


Tier 1: Solid LCQ Contender Tier 2: LCQ Contender
Rank Team Name Tier BSC Points Movement
1 Revenant Esports 1 320 0
2 Marcos Gaming 2 194 0
3 Grinddizers 2 173 +1
I think we can all agree that Revenant Esports is easily the best team in India. They have yet to drop a single match yet so far this year and they are projected to easily be the #1 team in India. I don't think there is much else to be said. They should easily win 1st in this region.
Marcos Gaming has been playing really well recently as they made it to the last two Monthly Finals as they attempt to secure that 2nd LCQ spot. They will still have a lot of tough competition and unless they can best Revenant Esports at least once, they will have to climb their way to the Monthly Finals. They have the 2nd spot currently, but they will need to keep qualifying for the Monthly Finals if they want to secure it. A team like Grinddzers have a chance to claim that 2nd LCQ spot as well, but they have a lot of tough competition especially against Marcos Gaming. This race for 2nd sure will be fun to watch as we approach the 2nd half of the season.

1 Crazy Raccoon 1 272 +1
2 REJECT 1 262 -1
3 Aphelion Esports 2 190 0
4 Chasmac Gaming EA 2 172 0
5 Not Noob 3 124 0
Crazy Raccoon redeemed themselves and won another Monthly Final. They won their 2nd this year and may have even solidified themselves currently as the #1 team to beat in the world. Using the right data for drafting did them well in their Grands matchup against REJECT. Speaking of REJECT, they made it to Grands all 3 months to kick off the first half of the season which is pretty impressive considering this is arguably the highest skilled region in the world. Despite taking 2nd this month and moving down a spot, I believe they should be contenders for a Worlds spot this year. If they get 2nd, they should be fine in the LCQ. Can't wait to see who wins that Worlds spot.
For the Tier 2 teams, Aphelion Esports clearly deserves 3rd as they have beaten Crazy Raccoon once so far this year (although that was mainly because Crazy Raccoon forgot how to draft in March). Still a solid contender for that 2nd LCQ spot. Chasmac Gaming EA has gone off to a rough start to the year as they have yet to win a single match so far this year, but they played against REJECT in every Monthly Final so far this year. I think it's still possible for them to pull it off if they play Aphelion a couple of times this year, but if they can't beat them or get an unlucky bracket run in the 2nd half of the year, they might be the team to miss out in the LCQ.
Not Noob has so far been the most consistent team outside of the Top 4 as they ended up making it to Top 8 every single month so far this year. It might be tough for them to make a run to the LCQ, but if Aphelion and CMG slip a bit, they have a chance. This would mean they would have to place well in the Monthly Finals, and I'm sadly not expecting a miracle to happen for them.

Despite getting reverse swept by SK Gaming in the first round in April, ZETA DIVISION did win back to back Monthly Finals back in February and March. Considering this is one of the more competitive regions and with their massive point lead ahead of Reply Totem, I believe they are easily the best team in EMEA as of right now. They will have a target on their back and they will need to do well in the 2nd half in order to secure that Worlds spot, but I think they should be fine as long as they don't collapse like they did in April.
I believe all of these teams have a realistic shot at making Worlds or at the very least the LCQ. I put Reply Totem in 2nd despite their poor performance in April. They have yet to win a Monthly Final so far this year and they originally looked like were are on the verge of decline, but their Mobile Masters championship win gave this team more hope for BSC. I think after that performance they should be looking to secure on of the World Finals spots. Let's hope they keep this up. NAVI rose really high in the rankings this month and it's all because of their huge Monthly Finals win to close out the first half. While their opponents weren't exactly the toughest, it was enough to put them in the Top 3 and in a good spot to get them back on track. All of the NAVI simps are popping off seeing them as a contender once again. Welcome back NAVI. As for ANR, despite not qualifying in April, they did go on some solid runs in the first two months of the season and there is a chance they are still a solid team heading into the 2nd half. Their performance in other events has me a little concerned, but I think they should be fine in the end. Don't panic yet ANR fans.
FUT Esports has been looking pretty solid as of late as they managed to get a reverse sweep on Reply Totem in April. Even though they couldn't beat SK Gaming, they are looking like the team we expected them to be at the start of the season. However this did come at a cost of star player OPE who was surprisingly cut from the team. From what I've heard it looks like LeNain is likely going to be his replacement, but this is not confirmed yet. Unfortunate for FUT fans, but let's hope this change doesn't screw them in the end. SK Gaming had a rough start, but ever since Jeton joined the team things have gotten better for them. They reverse swept the 2 time defending champs in ZETA DIVISION as well as beat FUT Esports. They did get swept in the end by NAVI, but I believe they found their missing piece to take them to at least the LCQ. They might be in 10th right now, but I see this team making noise in the 2nd half. Dogster Lobster has been playing alright recently, but I was not satisfied of their performance in April. Felt like they had some missed opportunities in their matchup against NAVI. The roster change I will say was definitely a good one as they added Cyclone to the team. They even brought Lukii back on the team so I'm guessing all is forgiven between him and the team. Xiaku might be gone, but I do think that was for the best of the team. It is rumored that this team will get signed by HMBLE to end the 2nd half of the year, but we'll wait and see if this is true in the coming weeks. Team Queso looked like a promising team to start the year until they got reverse swept by ZETA in the first round. After failing to qualify in March it was time they made a change. So far cutting AleSSJ and adding Blaksxy to the team has worked well as they managed to win their first Monthly Finals match of the year (despite it being against Am O Fantezie). They do have a lot of work to get, but I believe if they keep playing this well they should stay as an LCQ contender. Am O Fantezie finally got a Monthly Finals SET win which is a step in the right direction. They may not have won a Monthly Final match yet this season, but they have made it to the Monthly Finals every month so far. If they keep this up they may make it to the LCQ without winning a single match, but I would like to see this team start winning soon. MrDoSa is going to be the last team in this ranking for obvious reasons. Only made it to 2 Monthly Finals so far this year and they missed out on the most recent one. Not to mention they lost LeNain so now they are back to the original 3 members. From what I have seen from them, I think it'll be pretty hard for them to recover from this. It's not impossible, but I think it's unlikely they make it to the LCQ at this rate, but I could be wrong.

5 Skull 3 126 0
ZEST is the clear #1 favorite to win that only Worlds spot for SA East. Not only do they look like the only good team in this region, but they also have won every single Monthly Finals so far this season. That alone is impressive. I think they can easily keep this up and secure it in the second half, but now they got a target on their back. As much as I would like to see someone else win a Monthly Final, I don't see them taking ZEST's throne as the best team in this region.
QLASH had a bit of a rough start to the season, but it looks like they are going back to their winning ways again. After a questionable performance in February and a concerning performance in March, QLASH managed to get very close to beating ZEST in April taking them to a 5th set, but they weren't able to finish them off. They are looking to be the team that takes that LCQ spot, but they will have a lot of competition for it. As long as they keep playing like they did in April they should be fine. Bando De Loucos look alright even after the rough loss against QLASH that put them in 3rd in the rankings. Now that Edinho has left the team they will have to finish strong without him. It might be tough with QLASH going back to their winning ways, but they are still in the race for at least the LCQ spot. As for Super Renegados, it's been a rough start to the season for them. They have yet to win a single match so far, but playing against ZEST for every single match so far would do that to you. I'm not gonna count them out yet unless they can't beat anyone else in their region. We'll see how they do in the 2nd half. Good luck!
I don't have much to say about Skull other than they are on this list mainly because they have made it to every Top 8 so far this season. If they make it to a Monthly Final in June, maybe they might have a shot, but so far it isn't looking good for them.

It has been a chaotic first half of the season in SA West. It's so hard to choose a team that is #1 in this region, but I think despite the loss in the Semifinals against SKC, I would say LeaveNoWitness is the only team I'm confident in making to the LCQ. Them winning the first two Monthly Finals of the season as well as pulling multiple reverse sweeps is very impressive, however their loss in April did make them a little less invincible. I think in the end they deserve to be #1 for now, but with how chaotic this region is that might change on a dime.
SKCalalas SA Earned the #2 spot after their Monthly Final win in April. For now they are no longer chokers as they finally found a way to win on the big stage. Their spot isn't secured though and they still have a lot of work to do in the 2nd half. It's gonna be real fun to watch them and Reconic fight for that LCQ spot. Speaking of Reconic Esports SA, they ended up losing their first Semifinal match of the year as they got upset by the newly signed KDI Esports roster. Still think they deserve the #3 spot for their solid start to the year making it to the Grand Finals a couple of times, but like SKC they have a lot of work to do.
KDI Esports made it to the Grand Finals in their first appearance in the Monthly Finals. Why they weren't able to win it all, it still was enough to put them on a decent spot in this region. Despite how little points they have right now and them needing a miracle to make it to the LCQ, I think for now we celebrate them for winning a Monthly Finals match. Level eSports is a decent team overall, but like KDI it'll take a miracle for them to make it to the LCQ. I think currently it's a three team race and only 1 will sit out, but if Level surprises us and does what KDI did in April, there might be some hope.
This region is chaotic and needs more attention. Give them a Worlds Spot next year! That's all I'm gonna say.

NA East

Rank Team Name Tier BSC Points Movement
1 Tribe Gaming 1 266 0
2 Chasmac Gaming NA 2 226 +2
3 Motomamis F/A 2 226 -1
4 Untamable Beasts 2 180 -1
5 Team Jesus 3 92 +1
Tribe Gaming being #1 shouldn't be that surprising. They may have only won 1 Monthly Final all year long so far this year, but they are also the only team to make it to the Grand Finals in every single Monthly Final so far this year. Every single match they have played against Chasmac has come down to the wire and I think they will most likely be their biggest threat in the 2nd half. If they can handle them, they should be able to secure that Worlds spot.
We have a tie in points, but I'm going to pick the team I think is just slightly better right now and that is currently Chasmac Gaming NA. Their most recent win against Tribe Gaming to win the April Monthly Finals put them back in contention for the LCQ spot, but the job is not done yet. I feel if they can keep this up they should be able to play in the LCQ or maybe even the World Finals if they are good enough and beat Tribe a few more times. Motomamis F/A were looking good to start the year, but then they have been skidding a bit recently by losing in the first round of the Monthly Finals in March and April. They may be tied with Chasmac for now, but I feel like they are the weaker team in this scenario. Heck maybe even the weakest team of the Top 4 right now, but their Monthly Finals win back in February keeps them in the race for an LCQ spot for now. The Untamable Beasts are still in the race despite their only win being against a weak MTM team back in March. I think they have a chance to claim an LCQ spot as well, but I would like to see how well they play against Chasmac Gaming before deciding on their fate. Let's hope these thumbs down pin supporters stay alive in the race.
I couldn't think of another solid team that has a good chance at claiming an LCQ spot, but I have been impressed with Team Jesus and their performance in March and April. I think other teams have a shot at claiming the 5 spot, but I doubt any of them below the Untamable Beasts have a realistic shot at qualifying at this point.

NA West

Tier 1: WF Contender Tier 2: LCQ Contender Tier 3: Long Shot
Rank Team Name Tier BSC Points Movement
1 Dog Walkers 1 296 0
2 STMN 1 245 0
3 Reconic Esports NA 2 181 +1
4 Washed Team 2 176 -1
5 TLG West 3 142 0
I have to admit that the Dog Walkers have been off to a great start so far this year as they have been in the Grand Finals for every Monthly Final so far this year. Not only that, but they ended up beating STMN twice so far and they almost did it a third time in April, but they were unable to close it out this time. Still, they have a solid lead ahead of 3rd, but STMN isn't too far behind them so they will need to outperform them a few more times if they want to qualify for Worlds. STMN had a rough start to the season as they just couldn't find a way to beat the Dog Walkers. Now that they finally won a Monthly Final, they are still alive in the hunt for a Worlds spot, but they also have a solid lead for the LCQ spot. I doubt they will take the LCQ spot as this team is gonna be gunning for that Worlds spot so Dog Walkers should watch out cause here comes late season STMN coming in clutch... hopefully.
As for the teams below them it's a tight race for 3rd place, but nobody is really in a good spot to claim an LCQ spot right now. Reconic Esports NA looks like the best of the three so far, but they have yet to really beat anyone other than Washed Team. They are good, but losing Counter and creating a hole in their roster is an issue as there really aren't many good choices to pick up to fill in that third spot right now. I guess we'll see what happens in the coming days. Washed Team has looked Washed (laugh at horrible pun) so far as they have yet to win a Monthly Finals match so far this year. The old core wasn't working so cutting Frixi and replacing him with Alyanys should work out right? Well so far the results haven't changed much. Is it time to panic if you are Washed Team, or will they pick things up in the 2nd half?
As for TLG West, I don't have much to say about them other than they are the next best team in this subregion. I think for them like the other teams in 5th place the best case scenario for them would be them to secure that third spot. We'll see what happens, but I doubt they qualify for the LCQ this year.

Predictions (EMEA killed my picks this month)

SEA 1/1 3/3
India 1/1 3/3
East Asia 3/3 7/9
EMEA 2/7 (end me) 13/21
SA East 3/3 7/9
SA West 1/3 6/9
NA East 2/3 5/9
NA West 3/3 6/9
Mobile Masters - 8/14
TOTAL 16/24 58/86
I actually improved in all of my predictions this month except for a couple. For the first time, I managed to get every single pick correct for a region and that was for APAC. My biggest flex this month was taking SK over ZETA as not many people predicted an upset would happen, yet I somehow got it right. Can't say the same for the rest of my picks for EMEA, but I really did not believe NAVI could pull it off. Because of that, I am now sitting at a 67% correct pick rate on the year which isn't looking good for me. Reminder that if I get under 75% on the year I will have to do a punishment of some sort. Here's hoping I do better in the 2nd half of the year.
As for my predictions for the Snapdragon Mobile Masters event, I did ok, but I sucked in Day 2 as I only got 1 pick right (me being biased towards NA didn't work). Day 1 was alright, but I feel like 4 of the matches were free. I think you know which ones were free.
That sucks. I really hope I can bounce back for the 2nd half of the season. I will only count up to the final Monthly Final of the year so I must do really well in the 2nd half of the year. Let's hope this happens. If not, I will reveal the punishment in September and do the deed in October. I already know what I'm gonna do for it btw, but I won't share it until September.
Thank you for reading this and I hope you are excited for the 2nd half of the season to start in June. Hopefully the 2nd half of the season will be better for me.
Take care and have a good one.

2023.05.29 08:14 papi199494 Dealing with my Brother and His Disrespectful Girlfriend

My brothers girlfriend moved in a few months ago. She got in to a big fight with her family and they kicked her out. Shes not 18 yet and just finishing high school and my mom felt really bad for her. My brother is only 19. My mom had two rules ,she'd contribute 200$ in rent and she'd sleep in her own room.
Im nearly 30, I live with my parents and pay them market rent , it's convenient from me as i travel out of the country for half the year for work.
A short background: Everything was fine at first, then my brothers girlfriend started monopolizing the bathroom and started doing an insane amount of laundry (like 3 loads a day washing stuffed animals, blankets, etc, everyday) . A few weeks later the washer broke. We have two washer and dryers in our house and so the situation was that the washer that was in my brothers room worked and the dryer in the basement worked . My brother knew we might go in his room to do laundry when he decided to move in to the room with the laundry machine . So anyways the laundry situation was difficult for a while and we tried not to disturb my brother. Then at somepoint my brothers girlfriend offered to have a friend come over and move the washer to the basement . When her friend arrived she told my mom her friend would only move the washer down stairs if my mom let her also move the dryer downstairs. My mom didnt agree.The became a big problem cause my brother wasnt letting us do laundry , at one point he would tell us to leave cloths at the door and he would put out wet cloths in the hallway the next day for us to dry. This created a huge hassle for everyone.The girlfriend started getting nasty with my mom dad and me , constantly slamming doors especially when we tried to talk to her or my brother she'd slam the door in our face.
My mom gave her an eviction notice. She tried to "improve" cleaned the bathroom once and started sleeping in her room which was what was originally agreed to.
My parents went away on a vacation then my brother invited an only fans porn star over to have a orgy . I was home and had to listen to obnoxiously loud sex till 3 am , then i heard puking all night./ Tried to drown it out with music.I told my parents , they confronted my brother and girlfriend , the girlfriend gloated to my parents about the orgy . My parents told her she needs to leave .
My brother and girlfriend are now staying somewhere else but left all their stuff at my parents house.
This weekend my brother was gonna have a yard sale to sell their shit, at 10:30 pm the day before he sends a group text to my parents and myself asking my parents to move their car my parents are usually in bed by 9 , but my dad replies and says he'll do it in the morning and my brother says "Were starting setup at 4am i wouldnt suggest that" .I read as a bit confrontational and immediately reply calling out my brother and demanding he have a little respect for his parents. The next day i confront him about being confrontational with his parents and that it's bullshit that he was threatening to wake my parents up at 4am. He then called me some insult and told me he made that comment cause the noise of him moving the cars at 4am would wake my parents up. And i think he was gaslighting me cause moving the cars wouldnt wake my parents up but moving a bunch of shit out of the house at 4am to setup for a yard sale would. I didnt reply and just dropped it. I feel like maybe i overreacted . But then again he was pretty damn rude and i would never talk that way to my parents .
So reddit how do you deal with this shit? Is it the age? I remember being 18 once and i still would never treat my parents like this. And if my girlfriend acted this way towards my family , she wouldnt be my girlfriend anymore. I love my brother and really wish he would leave this witch ..but i know that is out of my control.

2023.05.29 08:14 _dillydAlli_ The First “I Love You”

The First “I Love You”
Hi, lovely humans of wholesome!
I’ve got a story about the first time my partner and I told each other the big ole I love you :)
So, he took me to the riverside near our campus. He packed a whole picnic and brought a speaker and the vibes were ✨✨✨ so magic✨✨✨and I could tell. I could TELL he was gonna say it. I was enjoyin some cheese cubes and he was all nervous.
Anyway. We packed up the picnic as the sun was setting to go meet some friends. He told me he was nervous and didn’t want to rush me (we’d been dating for two months at that point) but, he loved me. I was a whole human puddle and I said that I loved him too.
All in all, a beautiful moment. But the icing on the cake: when we got back to the car, he gave me a hug. A stranger in the car nearby rolled down his window and screamed “I LOVE LOVE.”
He had no idea what a big moment we had just shared as a couple, and his excitement brought us so much joy. His simple, plain excitement for a snapshot of a much bigger moment. He’ll never know that he became a little part of a story that spanned for years to come. ♥️
Your words travel with the people around you. Love well and love always:)

2023.05.29 08:12 EarnestEmbassy A Love Letter to the DreamSMP's Revolutionary Method of Storytelling

One of the main things that attracted me to the DSMP was its revolutionary (pun intended) method of storytelling. Let's call it first person omniscient pov.
Typically, a storyteller constrains an audience to what is written or shown on screen: the plot, characters, setting, etc. The DSMP had a central plot (L'Manberg) and main characters (Tommy, Techno, Wilbur, etc), however, Minecraft's open world, Twitch's streams, and the fact the cast are essentially the characters allows the audience to leave the narrative usually imposed by an author. The audience can view the story from varying perspectives and learn the complete stories of side characters, all in real time in line with the story. Beforehand, it would have been near impossible to have a first person omniscient story; for a film producer this would have been infinitely expensive and for an author infinitely time consuming.
I believe this unique method of storytelling is one of the main reasons people find it so appealing. There is just so much lore to immerse yourself in (granted, this was also one of the reasons I felt the DSMP got overwhelming near the end). It's like one giant canon fanfic about what happens outside the plot. Moreover, you know this story almost intimately. Sidenote: You can also interact with the characters through chat (so, like a roleplaying blog with canonical repercussions, I guess).
While I don't think I will see anything in first person omniscient as grand as the DSMP anytime soon, I believe we will be seeing more variations of this form of storytelling in the future thanks to technology.
Any other thoughts?

2023.05.29 08:11 GroveReader an alter that's been in front with me for 3 years and denial

so this sounds stupid, and i'm very likely overthinking, but the alter that is most often in front with me likes to talk aloud with me to my family. he enjoys conversations now that it's out that we're a system so he really likes making his presence known.
my question is - is it normal for him to respond to and shift into his personality that quickly too? i know that when someone's in front with you for a while, their personality can begin to mesh with yours. him and i have become extremely similar because he's been in front with me near constantly for 3 years.
sometimes it gets hard to tell us apart. lately he's had to take breaks away from me because we can't tell who's who after a while. i'm almost always in front as well, but lately i've begun leaving the body more and more. it's strange and coming back is disorienting. but in a way, it feels like i can't ever leave.
when i do come back i know almost everything of what the alter did while i was gone. there are gaps but the memories make me feel like i'm just faking it all.
and the question i love to ask - is this normal?

2023.05.29 08:10 chrisnelson86 Does anyone else really deeply struggle with being a people pleaser? Or overly concerned with pleasing others?

And I guess I’m also wondering if this is something correlated commonly with having been a JW and if anyone has found anything helpful with this. I guess this paragraph is the TLDR. Thanks in advance.
I’ve brought this issue up with a counselor before and she made some suggestions like to practice setting boundaries and ran through scenarios too to try to be helpful. I can see how that could work but I feel like this issue is even deeper with me.
I was born and raised a JW to two born and raised JW parents.. I was the middle child in an abusive household. I feel like I’ve been a shock absorber my whole life. Of course, as a JW you’re not encouraged much to get in touch with your own desires or interests, much less pursue them or (certainly not) learn to assert them even in what would normally be a healthy way. All of that is suppressed.
Add to that growing up a middle child and the typical issues that go with that.. to being in an abusive household where nearly all of the manipulative and abusive JW practices and teachings were employed and even amplified.. certainly aggravated with the threat of violence.
I felt like every question had a right answer, even opinion questions had right and wrong answers. Even on the extremely rare occasion my parents would ask me what I wanted to do, I was so out of touch with myself and my desires that just the thought of trying to come up with an answer was overwhelming and paralyzing. There would always be some sort of consequence to what I said. Whatever I chose or said, someone would be vocally and probably loudly upset. I didn’t ever have an honest chance to be myself or express myself in any way. I’m worried that that stunted part of me has missed its opportunity to develop.
Now I’m in my mid-late 30’s and I still have no clue what I want.. not even big things but small things like what I want to wear or where I want to go out to eat or what I want to do for fun or leisure. I still feel like I have to guess what everyone else around me in the situation wants.. and even if I did know why I want I wouldn’t have any idea how to be comfortable or confident communicating it or being assertive.
I’ve been called a pushover too many times to count in my life. To the point where it’s triggering. It instantly makes me very angry because most of the people who have called me that in my life are people who didn’t have any problem taking advantage of that part of me. I do feel good when I do things that please other people. I don’t get much satisfaction just doing things for myself. Is that weird? Is it a problem? It’s really all I know. I don’t have anything to compare it to.
I guess I’m sensitive to it because I feel like it’s something I should have figured out by now. I feel like I’m not fully developed or maybe emotionally deformed in some way that’s just plainly obvious to lots of people around me but that I’m blind to because I’m so used to it.
Again, I don’t think my problem right now is not knowing how to stand up for myself. That is a hurdle I still have coming up. It’s not knowing how to figure out what to stand for and care about in the first place. Is any of this relatable? If so, is it a common part of JW upbringing or is this more of an abusive family symptom?

2023.05.29 08:09 JimiCobain27 Why is Lost Temple a squad final? It's not a team effort round.

Just doesn't make sense to me, the whole point of squads is for your 4 beans to work together to get victory. But with Lost Temple, it's all just on one person. You can have a solid team of 4 good players against a team of 3 below average players and 1 great player, and you lose because of that ONE guy.
I'm not dogging on Lost Temple, it's a solid SOLO final, but belongs nowhere near squads.
