I'm pretty sure that their next bans would be permanent tbh

They used to strip characters of achievements and eligibility for end of season rewards for wintrading bans way back. It kinda surprises me that they stopped doing that.

Okay, but I can assure you that the game is still full of cheating people. Also, what I asked earlier; Why do cheaters still get to keep their rating/achievements/titles? It's not right. As soon as they are caught and punished for it, they should have these turned to 0 imo.
I do agree that achievements should be stripped

They used to do this. I don't know about now, I haven't played in a long time.

Also 6 month bans are very effective at tackling the issue. I know people with very rich accounts that got banned for botting and just said "ok, I'll wait it out and never bot again lol". The result is... players that don't cheat, aka the target.

I also know a lot of people that would just get permabanned, reroll on new account and bot because "its a new account anyway". Sure, these same people just did that same thing with the 6 month ban as well. It had no effect for these, but the above group of people was created (instead of making them either lost to the game, or move into this 2nd group).

My point is, 6 month bans do no harm, only good. The stubborn cunts that don't mind making new accounts make them ANYWAY. The people that "learned their mistake" get to stay, which is better than having them gone (or turn into cunts).

72 hour is perhaps too short, though.

I haven't played this game for quite a while but afaik they did do banwaves (several ones?) for botting in WoD. They've also gotten a lot more active with banning and updating their anti cheat software, there were 5 botting banwaves last season in D3 for example and that game is much 'cleaner' atm. They banned a lot of people for cheating in Overwatch beta. They're very active with banning cheaters in HotS, and I believe in SC2 (just assuming since its the exact same engine).

They're also currently recruiting a software engineer to work on anti-cheat (and I believe its several spots for that position actually). Chances are, they're gonna try to keep WoW clean as well come Legion. The principles and hacking vs detection methods are the same across all of this software anyway, so it'd cost them very little to. It wouldn't surprise me if banlists are being formed already, and have been for quite some time. Their D3 banwaves were pretty thorough.

Posted Thaya on 10 May 2016 - 01:07 AM

yeah

one of the key things for me was judging my past self in the same way i'd judge another person, i.e. by their actions only (not words or thoughts or whatever)

i realized that at every given point in time, i was just doing what i wanted to do. all the games, drugs, "wasted" time, "missed" opportunities, etc., it applies to all of it. i played wow instead of properly studying in uni because i wanted to play wow and didn't want to study, i didn't work because i didn't want to, i didn't go to the gym because i didn't want to, i didn't socialize much irl because i didn't want to, and i spent most of my time playing games, coding/building random shit, and shitposting because that's what i really wanted to do (and still do).

viewing it like this lead me into understanding myself a lot better than ever before. like, regardless of my thoughts during that entire timeframe (which were mostly negative, i.e. thinking im wasting my life / missed the boat / etc), the simple truth is, that's what i wanted, and that's what i was doing. if my wishes were actually any different, i'd have probably acted differently too, as all the necessary tools and opportunities were available to me.

thus, there just can't be any regrets. it'd just be weird to regret doing what you want to do. no life was wasted and no ship was missed, it was all just choices being made, and as i said before, there's no "good choices" or "bad choices", it's all the same, it's just "your choices". sure, there are certain things or accomplishments/results/statuses that i wish i had, but don't, but that's not a regret really. that's just wishing you had shit that you don't have. and it's not even important shit given this "proper" context of what i am/what i want to be, so all these sadboy tears were for nothing really

this was actually the very first 'change', everything else stems from this. this is about, like, accepting yourself, admitting that whatever situation or state you're in, you're in it willingly, thus taking full responsibility for it, and consequently, gaining full control of it too.

one thing i remember really well is directly after this i just thought like, "well, ok, i love internet and games, i definitely need to fix my financial part of life tho" and instantly i started finding PLENTY of ways to monetize my activity. i've been completely oblivious to this shit before, mind you, so it was all "holy shit!!! this is so ez". i just didn't even really look, because i thought gaming and shitposting are just, like, some of the ways i waste my life with, and one day i'd stop and suddenly become a different person entirely. its like, my mind was so clouded with doubts that i didn't even see really basic things lying in front of me.

and all i did was change how i perceive things. everything (literally) is fun/exciting for me right now, and everything is fucking simple as well. i can motivate myself to "want" just about anything. chores? i want to be clean and live in a clean place. work? i want to build my project cuz its dope and cuz i want/need money. gym? cuz i want to be in good shape/health.

as for quotes, one that's become really close to me is "We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of effort is the same"

it's Castaneda, who sure wrote a lot of whacky shit, but 'Journey to Ixtlan' is imho a real gem. i generally wouldn't recommend to read Castaneda, but Ixtlan i absolutely would recommend. (it's part of a series but it's written in a way that you can read just that one, don't need the context.)

there's also this Buddhist saying:

"Before I had studied Zen for thirty years, I saw mountains as mountains, and waters as waters. When I arrived at a more intimate knowledge, I came to the point where I saw that mountains are not mountains, and waters are not waters. But now that I have got its very substance I am at rest. For it's just that I see mountains once again as mountains, and waters once again as waters."

#4577223 Throw me some wisdom u druggies of OT

Posted Thaya on 20 April 2016 - 02:00 AM

shrooms are psilocybin and is in a lot of ways similar to LSD

it's safe as fuck, just eat very lightly before you do it. this is both because it will affect the trip onset and length (empty stomach -> faster digested mushrooms, obviously) and because the shrooms feel pretty weird when they're inside you (could be just me tho idk). it also ensures that you won't throw up or whatever

also don't eat too many at once. first of all they hit like a truck, secondly shrooms are literally poison for your body so eating too many could make you get food poisoning (and the worst trip of your life ever coincidentally). your friend probably knows what to do though if its not the first time for him anyway

and um, effects wise it's like... colors will just feel super vivid for you, mild hallucinations are possible. you won't talk to objects that aren't there but you may see 'faces' in patterns and shit like that

in general most of your trip will be just walking around and being all like "holy shit the world is so fucking beautiful asdkfahslkdfasdfjasl;kfjaskldfj; omfg dude"

even walls and floors and carpets and shit will be like "WHOA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO PRETTY"

then you'll sit or lie down and start exploring your brain and get all spiritual and shit a bit later

its pretty good, can recommend
