@Frost
Spoiler:

Funny enough, even after capturing few squads of RUSSIAN Airborne, having multiple satellite images of border crossing by Russian army and eyewitnesses, Russia still claims 'there is no Russian troops, those airborne just got lost'...
I guess that armored division got lost too, since there is no way they could be near Mariupol, aside from coming from Russia...

If their armored division is anything like 1AD, I'd buy it.

Mhm. If I should believe test on Canadian embassy's site - I pass (min score is 67 out of 100), but..I need pass few tests, that I need pay for and..well, according to how exchange rate my currency to dollar is jumping right now, soon enough I will be earning equal or less in month (in dollars) to what some McDonald's worker in US earns in a day (right now my salary is ~180$ and if ghryvna keeps dropping, that would be 100$ in few month).
And no, I don't need help with paying, I'll try manage this on my own. *sigh* Hopefully after all this settles..but not with my luck.

Just remember folks in your industry over here make an easy 40-50K yearly with your experience. 

Or you could make $1,500 a month, but have your housing and food provided along with a virtually guaranteed way to easily get your citizenship. Works less with software as it does with hardware.

Bots mostly for me. I usually (read::always nowadays, check my match history) play Sona to help out those trying new champs or trying a new role. If I can tell the person is a lvl30 I help out more aggressively with Ardent Censer and a Sheen. If they can't carry, I dive into AP carry immediately with Lich Bane. Ally skill usually indicated by how fast I can stack Soulstealer with them. Had a couple of ragers who complained about me "not following the meta" or "sucking at support", but hilariously those get shouted down by other team mates, while I RP Sona with "..."

@Stone
As much as I would like to use that, at this point I find that turns out to be the cop out answer. Apathy to this situation would be just as bad as picking a side and bashing the other. Have to dig for truth, at least listen to arguments, if not wholeheartedly agreeing with them, and having rational discource that does not end in ad hominem. Currently (at home) watching Anita vids and discussing with sister. Admittedly I did go nitpicky myself when it came to the first three videos.

What is the current drama anyway? I'm not even sure who Anita is. I remember a lady who didn't get hired for some position at I believe giantbomb? She believed it was for sexist reasons. Is this the same person?

All I know is that this debacle is prime grade entertainment to me. r/tumblrinaction has been having a field day about this whole thing and I love it.  If you are ever board go on twitter and check out the stupid shite going down on #Istandwithjontron. IDK I just find terrible things entertaining. 

Any link to the original video that started this whole internet shitstorm btw? Kind of curious myself.

@Stone
Only helpful if you saw it coming. Never even heard about this stuff before a few days after the initial ZQ event. Got messages asking what my opinion on this stuff was. Hard to see, much less get to safety when you are in the storm.

@Last
Anita has a video channel: Feminist Frequency that brings up things that she thinks are sexist in industries today. Asked for a kickstarter of $6k to make videos using video games as examples and got a lot of money in response. Released a video recently of that series, and hate from ZQ spilled back onto her. Videos are controvertial, but good luck trying to find rational discussion. Accusations exist of her stir up 4chan to hate on her during the beginning of kickstarter to play victim card (unconfirmed). Recently gotten death threats (unconfirmed).

@tyler
Guess it would be fascinating if observed from a detached standpoint. Bothers me too much for me though. Do not like censorship, but doxxing is not necessary in this case. Just makes the situation worse. Can not tell where actions originate from, if they are pepetrated by the accused or if the accuser set up a false flag.

Oh, I think my friend told me about her a while back. At the time I think he was saying something about her not doing as many videos as she said she would despite getting more money then she asked for.

Huh, unrelated but apperently Jontron is on the next cooptional podcast.

Methinks that she does make the videos, just that research takes time, even if it is cherry-picked. Game library is huge. She never guaranteed to do anything with the extra money. Did not establish stretch goals. Can do what she wants with the extra cash, should not be pressured to change her original goal. Admirable, but should not be demanded

Also, definitely related because heard that they do discuss this topic on the podcast.

Meant unrelated to our discussion. And whether or not she adds stretch goals my friend didn't bring up. If you say your gonna do something and accept money for it than you should be at the very least morally obligated to do what you orignally said you would.

I don't follow her at all. My friend said she fell behind and the content he said she offered didn't interest me so I didn't look into it. I'm just repeating what I heard.

Do not mind delays, but a layer of transparency would be nice. Why it is taking so long would be nice from her mouth. Thing about stretch goal discussion was that some argued that since she has gotten a lot more than she asked for, then she is obligated to spiff it out like what happened with the Brony Documentary. Will double check accusations of not releasing videos.

I dunno about that. That's not how most kickstarter things work. She had an idea and people funded it in greater numbers than she expected and maybe offered more than she could give. Producing the videos might be harder than she expected and she's getting tons of hate mail all the way.
I don't know her situation and am not interested in what she was to say, but anyone who gave her money should have been prepared to wait a while for her to deliver, if she does at all.

Reminds me a little of the fundraiser Giant in the Playground had for Order of the Stick (a webcomic) in order to, iirc, pay for a reprinting run of some of his books and for making the webcomic his primary profession.
He was still sending out incentives for the donations he received, like, a year or two after the fundraiser closed.

@SK If she had offered stretch goals I'd understand. She didn't though at least from what I'm hearing right now. But had she and they fell through because she didn't understand how much it would cost than that would be her fault. You shouldn't make promises especially when money is involved that you can't keep.

It seems pretty unreasonable to just expect more because you paid more. If people are doing that. Again I don't have any idea of what's going on.

@Swicked 

On one hand I feel if you offer up a service or item for sale you should be legally obligated to provide it somepoint after payment.
 
The other hand says that as investors the people on kickstarter should understand they're not gauranteed anything.

On the other other hand I don't feel not understanding how much the stretchgoal or the overall goal was going to cost especially when dealing with people familiar with the work *looks at doublefine* is a legitimate excuse.

Of course there's always the unexpected. I tend to agree with SK here, as long as you're transparent then it should be fine when the unexpected comes along.
