    Wasn't a 75% hero cost reduction essentially what they were running in the Beta though? So after the Beta they were testing the water to see how much they could screw people over in terms of forking out cash (simultaneously encouraging lootbox gambling, which there seems to be growing concern about as it mirrors real life gambling), and now they've returned to the Beta prices - which testers already told them were too high? Doesn't really seem like medal worthy behaviour.

    I guess I haven't played an EA game in years, but it's always good to see a bit of bite back from a player base when they're getting screwed over. I think people on Reddit and elsewhere and now looking to complain straight to Disney, so that EA will get slapped around for treating the license so poorly.

    Good morning.

    Yesterday I reached a milestone in my development as a human being.

    I burped and farted at the same time.

    Good morning.

    I think at least half the stuff on Urban Dictionary is terms made up by a tiny group of friends and used only by them.

    Good morning.

    Well, I don't think the picture quite matches the phrase, but yes, a collection of those.

    Good morning.

    I decided to change my forum avatar back, because when Arcanum 2 lands and it's massive I didn't want too much of a spotlight shone on my off-colour joke on the topic of the logical happenings of what would happen if you chose to click on one of the more dubious adverts here. Besides, I think we can all agree that any kind of downfall that ever happened here can be attributed to Smuel right?

    A good morning to you all. I hope you appreciate the ever so slightly off-centre lower res version of my old avatar image.

    The older I get, the more I dislike change. Make of that what thou wilt, Jo'.

    Good morning.

    One of the best misunderstandings I've seen in a while, someone just created a topic called the "CP Megathread" over on the Arcanum subreddit - of course referring to the lesser known CP acronym "character points", and not the... err.. other one.

    Of course, I had to come up with an obscene response, "One of the best ways to maximise your CP is through use of Therapeutics, they can be used regardless of aptitude and offer massive bonuses. Both Mind Marvel and Muscle Maker depending on what you want to prioritise are a way to permanently give yourself a greater stash of CP. I once made a character who was more or less a CP master, maxing out every single attribute in an orgy of excellent CP usage."

    Good morning.

    We've already established that I'm a hip dude with his finger on the nipple of popular culture, but I'd never seen that abbreviation before.

    For those of you also similarly baffled by Jojo's last post, 'CP' is apparently used as an abbreviation for something that is an anagram of 'Phild Cornography".

    Mood gorning.

    I'd heard of the abbreviation before from lurking on various psychology forums, but I wouldn't have made the connection if another person already hadn't commented about the inappropriateness in the thread. Fortunately someone did so hilarity could ensue.

    Or you know, some other paper-thin smokescreen justification that makes it sound less like I'm a paedophile.

    Good morning!
