    posted a message on AVIANA COMBOS ARE BROKEN IN WILD. TOGGWAGGLE DECKS SHOULD NOT BE IN RANK 10 LEGEND

    There is no reason why that sort of deck shouldn't be at Rank 10 Legend. If you face enough slow decks, it's extremely effective to use it.

    Also, the likelihood of your opponent drawing the exact combinations of cards that allow them to do that by turn 4 is so absurdly low, that trying to make that a point ruins it. You haven't faced something like that more than once or twice, if ever.

    Either way, you already gave away the solution to your problem when you said they spend the first 4 or more turns ramping up mana. That is exactly what they need, turns where you don't do anything. Solution is to not give them the turns.

    Wild Mode is the real mode for the game. Your cards are always there, you don't need to spend much.

    Hardly surprising. They are ideologically aligned with the CCP, they will use similar measures. He is just lucky it's not the actual CCP and they aren't in China.

    3) What does cutting off financial ties with China help fascism and communism to be overthrown? An ideology to be eradicated from humanity. That's  probably going to take thousands and thousands of years. Likely fascism is here to stay with humanity. 

     

     How do you think the Soviet Union (not to be confused with the Soyviet Union that just appeared in Seattle) was taken down?

    The only reason why China didn't crumble like the Soviet Union is because they were opened to world trade. If they had remained shut, they would have been gone for a long time now, the Communist party that is. Although right now, they operate very much in a fascist way, they are the closest thing to the Nazi Party existing. They just haven't picked a race to exterminate (if you don't count their own with the Leap Forward and the rest), they are using their concentration camps to "re-educate" Uyghurs.

    You are just talking about crimes here but the discussions and protests are not just about crimes.

    I myself am white and never discriminated for scin color but I did when just starting driving my car.
    My first car was a Volkswagon Polo and I was held by the police for alcohol tests at least once a month.
    Three years later I switched cars and never had to do a alcohol test again in my life, despite not changing the way I drive.
    I'm 14 years further now.

    That's probably what happens to black people too. 

    I honestly also think people get more aggressive over time when being discriminated often. 
    So what is first. The chicken or the egg?

     What else is it about, if not crimes? (I may know, I just want you to specify clearly so I can see if there is something to address.)

    I assume you live and travel in white majority areas, nothing wrong against that. But if you travel to other areas that aren't white majority, you might see a different reaction. The stupid idea of "White Privilege" that some people enjoy entertaining is just non-sense that doesn't exist. It's actually a privilege of being part of the majority of the population of the area. That is why if you go to China, suddenly your "White Privilege" disappears, because you are no longer majority. If it were related to being white as opposed to being part of the majority, it would remain true even in China or any other non-white majority area.

    I don't believe that was discrimination. You were tested for alcohol which is almost exclusively done at night. This is one of the worst arguments against racist profiling ever, since at night, in your car, they will rarely be able to tell your race. You need to be in a very well lit area, or there needs to be a road block operation for that to even be a consideration.

    I have personally been stopped and tested for alcohol quite a lot of times, I worked and partied a lot over the years, and that meant quite frequent stops at night to test for alcohol. I'm also white. Funnily enough, far, far more often then a couple of my black friends. I just put it up to the fact that I would leave later, and therefore, at a time when they were actively testing.

    I think you grow resentful if you are constantly being told you are being discriminated, or if you constantly attribute things to discrimination, regardless of whether or not it is the case. And if you take into consideration the constant focus institutions like the media have on emphasizing everything as racist and discriminatory, people eventually believe it. That is how propaganda works, if constantly fed. You might at first doubt it, but if bombarded enough, you'll get there.

    Your comment holds some merit but it's also a half-truth. The truth is, you're more likely to be targeted, harrased, arrested, and face violence as an African American. If you don't believe me then don't even bother replying. 

    If you are talking about the police, are you adjusting for criminality? If yes, then you really need to look at criminality and statistics, you'll see it's not really targeting. It's not a matter of believing you, I know blacks are arrested at a higher percentage, they are also responsible for a higher percentage of crime, so it's expected.

    I don't particularly care for disparity in races, I solely care about whether justice is being applied correctly. If that means more black or white of pink people are getting arrested compared to population percentage, that is irrelevant to me, I care about whether they are being arrested for crimes or if they are being arrested and innocent. If they are innocent and being arrested, then it's injustice, and that matters.

    A white nationalist doesn't necessarily seek to "create a nation solely on race" (whatever that means). I imagine you're getting that from the people who define white nationalism as a sum of its worst elements (kkk, neo-nazis, etc.)

    There are many other forms of nationalism. Would I be correct in assuming you don't judge black nationalism based on racist African militias? 

    I guess this is a matter of how you are reading it.

    You can be a white nationalist which seeks a nation based on white race, and you can be a white - - nationalist, meaning a white person that is also nationalist, meaning someone who believes in a nation state and policy focused on what the nation and it's people need. Usually race isn't really something that matters to a nationalist.

    I don't really like the first one, I have no issue at all with the second, I happen to be one. As a nationalist, I care about the best for my nation, and if that is having people of multiple races, then I have no issue with that (there are talented people of all races, I think it's stupid to limit yourself and not taking the talents of others just because of their race.)

    I think you are confusing trigger with cause. Maybe I wasnt clear enough on that part myself. The cause of the protests isn't George Floyds death, the cause is the systematic racism in US Amarican society. George Floyds death is the trigger that startet the protests. 

    Imagine living in a country where police brutality especially against African Americans is a well known problem and then there is a video of a white police man choking a black man to death while he is crying for help and that he cant breath, while everyone is watching and feels unable to do anything. Everyone in the world can watch that video and it is horrifying. The power behind that image is incredible strong. It is not an image created by media or politics, many people saw the video and instantly thought about racism and how it is still a major problem in US American society.

    To make it short: The media didnt create the imaUnlge, it was a strong trigger to a long underlying problem in US American society. The protests are a natural and needed result of that. The sad thing is that the death of George Floyd had to happen for the protests to start.

     Can you define Systemic Racism? Because last time I check, systemic, meaning implemented through laws designed to be racist, it stopped existing since the Jim Crow Laws were ended. From that point forward, laws were not designed nor implemented to target people based on race. Of course, if you count Affirmative Action, that is indeed racist, it gives preferencial treatment based on Race, which is Racist, but otherwise, what exactly are you talking about?

    (By the way, while systemic racist ended back in the 60's, the effects caused by the discrimination up until that point didn't end there, but those lasting effects are not systemic.)

    This is the point I tried to convey with regards to the media. The media do not cover the instances in which the police are equally brutal with other races, specially white people. That is because they want to incite racial tension and conflict. If they covered every instance of brutality, against all races, you would understand my point. If they can't push a racial angle, they don't cover it. If you want an extremely similar case to George Floyd, look up Tony Timpa, didn't get covered because he was white.

    No, the sad thing is that the media are trying to force this to be a race issue when it's not racial, it's simple bad policing, that happens against all races. But if you don't want to understand that, it is pointless for me to elaborate further.

    On the parenthesis, correct, but it is wrong to be the combination of both as a term, white nationalist (someone who wishes to create a nation solely on race). Not saying you are or that you support that, just adding this because some people will interpret you incorrectly.

    The idea behind blm is not that only black lives matter, it is to stop racism towards black people. I dont think I really need to explain this because its very obvious and everyone knows that. So the only gain by saying "all lives matter" is to undemine the efforts blm is making.

    Let me get this clear: NOONE is saying that there are lives that dont matter. If your answer to blm is "all lives matter" you are helping the especially in usa existing racism towards black people by not making it a point of discussion.

    There is always time to speak about discrimination towards any group of people but right now because of the death of George Floyd its time to talk about racism towards black people.

    The only gain of "all lives matter" isn't to talk about all kinds of discrimination, but to not talk about discrimination at all. Yes that is a problem for me.

     The problem is you see George Floyd as racism, and that is because you are only shown what people that want to create racial conflicts want you to see. Did you ever see Tony Timpa? Extremely similar situation to Floyd, but it never got media attention, and that is what happens because when it's violence against white people from the police, they don't show you, they cannot use it to create a racial narrative.

    It's at a point where the discussion is solely focused on police violence against black people, when police violence happens to all races. You just don't see it, it doesn't get attention when it cannot be used for racial conflict, and that is a huge problem, and very scary, because the last thing you want is to let this propaganda lead to a race war.

    Not to mention, if you look at the BLM site, what they believe, you should see they aren't solely about the fact that black lives, much like any other race, matter.

    So the changes they were making to Art was indeed a result of complaints from insane people.

    Also, it's good to know they are singling out how they associate themselves with by deciding based on the race. Good to know Blizzard is racist.

    Honestly, I don't understand why companies keep doing this stupid virtue signaling. We do not care about your politics, you are providing people with a product/service. Unless you have actively been discriminating all these years, why feel the need to signal?

    I guess we now know they will be forcing people into indoctrination on nonsense, which means in the near future, you'll be greeted with pop-ups asking you if you are doing good for X people, or if you are donating, or whatever else.

    Not surprising, if Naughty Dog fell for this crap, Blizzard obviously would as well.

    Probably, and while I don't think they were a problem, I never even found Altruis a problem at 3, they should have gone with Enemy Minions the first time they nerfed it, I don't see what else would be a problem from a Control tool that works mostly at random because one doesn't control draw order.
