I absolutely agree with the difference in scale. And that the scale makes it worse. Though that is the only difference I see. I could be very biased since I really love the internet and what it is. I just don't see how you can say the "the internet" is a problem.


People die to automobiles, are they the problem? People die from heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Is food the problem?

I see your point and I agree, the internet is great.


I think there's a more direct correlation here than the examples (or any number of others), where the internet is so closely tied to people being dicks, and how easy it is to hunt people down using it.


I also think "well that's just how people are whatchagonnado" is too often used as an excuse to not try to fix problems. That's a whole separate issue though, and not necessarily connected to Dustin's somewhat throw-away line.

I am always turned off when people say "The internet is a problem.". People existed before the internet and most wars happened before the internet. Why polarize an issue in the first 4 words? They are meaningless.

The whole story sounds like something I would hear about in highschool. A girl lets her "friend" read her diary then the "friend" comes to school and reads the diary outloud and embarrasses her.Reply

Agreed. People haven't changed, just the medium.

I thought there already was a mod just like this for years and years? Are they just re releasing already available mods but charging for them?Reply

I thought Zelda games were just action adventure games, why is everything othergame-like now?

Stream sniping is dumb and wrong and streamers have recourse by putting a delay or hiding their game until they are dropped in.

You say that but they banned DrDisrepect for teamkilling.

Different situation entirely - DrDisrespect personally offended thd game's creator. Much as I empathize when PU, the way he banned DrDisrespect was fair. The way he reacted afterwards is more a symbol of PUBG's internal corruption than anything else.

Well you can only stream to facebook with battle.nets streaming feature too.

I think it makes sense in a way to break out of the gamer bubble and get non gamers interested.

I went in expecting Mount and Blade or Chivalry and got a 3d fighting game. It is mostly fun, I think the move sets display is really useful but wish they had a more comprehensive glossary.

With their sponsored videos the guy who did the knight ones did a really good job going over each of the classes and their abilities and wish the other classes got the same treatment.

I think knowing what your opponent can do is very important in this game since not all combos and attacks can be countered in the same ways.
