      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

  1. From what I understand, he never lost the form, only the ability to tap into his full power without the use of Super Saiyan. Now if he can train himself to his proper mystic form and then stack super saiyan 2 on top of that, he'd be pretty damn powerful. Maybe close to God form (Red)?
  2. http://store.steampowered.com/news/externalpost/rps/1858142318028326629 The Centurion and Ninja release next month.
  3. I will be playing between 7:00PM Eastern and 10:30PM Eastern if anyone wants to join me @BillTheConqueror @Sanborn @SFLUFAN @BasemntDweller2 @Wykillin @Bionic_Tuna @Xbob42
  4. Anyone who plays squad games like this should have a copy http://armyrotc.msu.edu/resources/FM3-21InfantryRifleSQPL.pdf
  5. Some tips that I think might help us survive better in Duo/Squad situations 1. Work as a team with a squad leader and fire team roles We are only so effective individually, but by having someone in a leadership role and working as a cohesive unit instead of as individual players will help our survivability. It's clear from my short time with PUBG that what weapons you end up will determine your role in combat. Find a shotgun and an smg? You're clearly suited towards indoors and urban fighting. Find an AR and an 2x or ACOG scope? You're suited for general purpose fighting in a variety of situations. Find an SKS, Silencer and 8x scope? You're the squad sniper. 2. Don't stack up (except for breaching) One of the worst things I've seen players do in PUBG is stack up, especially in open fields. Not only are you easy pickings, but your overall team survivability is far lower. Each player should spread out a few meters apart in formation, forming overlapping vectors of fire. 3. Determine the rules of engagement before dropping onto the field Is your goal to get to the very end of the game with minimal casualties? You'll probably want to take a stealthier approach, search for equipment suited for stealth and choose your engagements very carefully. Do you want to be a NoScope360MLG player trying to rack up as many kills as possible? You're probably going to want to drop in an area where you will be in frequent contact with other squads. 4. Maintain awareness and utilize sector coverage The alt key is your friend. Get used to traveling with the alt key depressed so that you can scan and search while traveling. Whenever the squad stops at a location, it should maintain 360 degree coverage. This is especially important when searching buildings for loot in the mid to late game where you are more likely to run into other players, especially if you hang close to the border of the playing area. Questions you need to ask yourself constantly: Where is the enemy most likely relative to you? Where is the nearest usable piece of cover or concealment? Where are my teammates watching? Just remember that everything you do needs to compliment your team and it's abilities. 5. Buddy System and Accountability If you ever have to split up, for any reason, bring a buddy. Pairs should be figured out before the match starts and you should always let your buddy know where you're going to be or what you are doing. Need to heal, let them know. Need to reload, let them know. Find equipment they can use, let them know. 6. Bounding Overwatch This is quite literally the single most important tactic that I haven't seen a single PUBG player use in my short time playing the game. Everyone tends to just run until they get to cover instead of covering each other, tending to get shot and killed if they're unlucky. Edit: Play how you want and most importantly, enjoy the game. These tactics here are just basic infantry training that I'm sure @SFLUFAN would approve of/expand upon.
  6. The mistake with DR 4, aside from being a step back from DR 3 in almost every way, was being a holiday themed game. Never make a holiday themed game that you expect people to buy year round. Now RE7 was ducking fantastic, but Japanese have a thing with fps games making them ill and a lot of RE fans were either burned by a slew of trashy releases or weren't digging the fps view. That and it was an (successful) experiment in RE game design that was risky. I personally think it paid off though. 3.5 million isn't anything to scoff at and Capcom just has unrealistic expectations.
  7. That couldn't have been good for his back
  8. Engineering in general is not a science in and of itself, but the application of mathematics various forms of knowledge (including science). You're looking at B.S. and thinking "Okay, field of science" At this point we're just wasting time by arguing semantics. Points of fact Engineering is not a field of science, but engineers do apply science in their work Bill Nye does not have an documented educational background in sciences, merely honorary PHDs awarded for his work as a science communicator Bill Nye is not a scientist (he has even claimed this himself on various podcasts) Bill Nye, despite not being a scientist, is more of a scientist than your average joe but that is meaningless when your opposition sees you as an actor with no real credentials to back up your claims; which is further exacerbated by saying and doing things that hurt his case.
  9. Applying the scientific method doesn't make you a scientist, this isn't hard. At this point you're just being contrarian for the sake of being contrarian. Not being a scientist doesn't mean you don't understand science either, Bill Nye is a science communicator after all; so he has to have some understanding of science, even if his understanding of various fields of science isn't remotely on par with people like Neil Tyson, Lawrence Krauss, Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking, etc.
  10. Mechanical Engineering is a field of Engineering and a Degree in such a field does not qualify one as a scientist, only in the analysis, design, manufacturing, maintenance and operation of machinery in it's various forms. Yes, a Mechanical Engineer has to apply materials science in specific instances (e.g. developing metal skin that won't freeze over in the upper atmosphere, etc.) but that in and of itself is not science as the mental labor that went into the mechanical engineers work was already mostly done. That being said, I take issue with @heyyoudvd's claims. Bill Nye is clearly an intelligent and accomplished person who surrounds himself with intelligent and accomplished people; Anyone with half a brain can recognize that. However, Bill Nye has proven himself to be susceptible to brain failures, as evidenced by his strong anti-gmo stance prior to early 2016; discounting bad -religious- ideas for the Paris attack and blind acceptance of the worst parts of gender/queer theory (though I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt, I think he truly just wants to be a positive, inclusive force for change and just got swept up by imbeciles.) For someone who really needs as much ammunition as he can get for his climate change campaign, he seems ready and willing to just give that ammunition away to his opponents so that they can use it against him. His political endeavors should be sticking to the hard sciences as his foray into the soft sciences have left quite a few people with a sour taste in their mouths. "Edit ~ I especially love that the latter comment came from someone with a degree in astrophysics, a field in which much of the work cannot be governed by the scientific method since it is observational/theoretical rather than experimental." This comment is absolute bullshit. Make many repeated observations. Classify the observed data and derive general empirical laws from them. Use those laws to infer some basic postulates and build a theory from them. Apply the theory to explain observed results and make new predictions. Verify those predictions by new observations or make modifications in the theory observations are contrary to predictions. Rinse and repeat until satisfaction is met, or go back to the drawing board if your theory turns out to be wrong. Scientific Method that you will literally find in Astronomy/Astrophysics books bruh, even theoretical branches of sciences on the frontier use these basic principles.
