  1. Home Improvement/Remodel Thread

    Last fall I had new windows and a new patio door installed, but now I'm having issues where something in the door is jamming and it won't close all the way. I called the company to have someone come fix it because it was clearly an installation error, but apparently they went out of business and my "lifetime" warranty is worthless. I assume I'm just boned?
  2. Also, whoever runs the United social media programs needs a raise. They put this together after the win against Dallas last night:
  3. Loons up to 3rd in the western conference, one point out of 2nd. Also hosting the US Open Cup semifinal in a few weeks. 7 straight wins across all competitions.
  4. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

    The prize pool for the next two COD World League events are something like $1M and $3M each, so they definitely are successful. Nowhere near the main eSports though.
  5. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

    Yeah, it was a strange choice. I know they are really trying to promote the competitive scene and CWL, but 99% of people that play COD aren't into super competitive/tactical play with no health regen, no streaks, no minimap, no custom classes and tiny maps. All the criticism I have seen on reddit, etc. is that "this doesn't look like COD", which it obviously doesn't because the public multiplayer that everyone plays is a completely different game from competitive setups like this. What they should have done is have someone like Scump play against full lobbies of devs so they can just dominate and show off the high streaks. That is the type of thing that most people want with COD, and that would get people hyped.
  6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

    Nah, I only liked hardcore in BO4 because of the slow TTK and specialist nonsense. For this one I'd be all-in on core.

    WE GONNA DO THIS?? 2v2 is the perfect mode for non-professional competitive play.
  8. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

    I don't think it'll be bad at all, especially not in pubs and normal games modes. S&D and the 2v2 mode are gonna be intense though. You can really tell how much they worked on the graphics engine; this game looks gorgeous.

    I like the new super sprint that lets you sprint extra fast, but with terrible ADS and sprint out times. I did see some sliding but it isn't anything like sliding in the advanced movement games. Being able to mount on walls/ledges is interesting, I just hope it isn't overpowered in objective modes if you set up on a key power position. TTK is also much faster than pretty much anything since MW3. Slower movement and fast TTK means this is going to be a very tactical game.
  10. Relationship Advice Thread

    Yeah, it actually worked out really well for us. I was the perfect combo of a low-pressure stranger (it is just always easier to talk to strangers about heavy stuff) and someone that could relate. We also just get along great and communicate well, so I think I really helped her through the hardest part. After that first date, we hung out for 8 hours and 12 hours over the next 2 days because she wanted a distraction (and to drink, which is fine by me). It was really weird for things to happen so fast, but this one really feels like it is gonna stick, so I don't mind.
  11. Top 10 Linebackers

    I’d definitely put Greenway above Henderson. Not sure about the older guys.
  12. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

    Killstreaks instead of scorestreaks is moronic. Great way to kill any point to objective play and promote camping.
  13. The US has always been dominant in women's sports. That isn't surprising. The reason the USMNT is so far behind other major countries is because every other country has 100+ years of work developing their youth and developmental leagues. They have great academies and systems to train players from children all the way to the top. Almost every single worthwhile USMNT player came up through European systems, because in Europe and South America, players are given full resources to dedicate their life to training from as early as 5-6 years old in soccer-specific academies. But most importantly, they have made it very profitable to develop players. It is all about the money. The top teenage players are regularly sold to the major clubs for tens of millions of dollars. Until very recently there just wasn't enough money in soccer in the US for there to be a focus on youth development (also the USSF was a horribly run organization, but that is a different story). That is changing. With the USL stabilizing the lower levels of the pyramid and MLS exploding over the last 3 years, there are now huge amounts of money in play, and teams are finally setting up true youth academies and developmental teams. With more and more parents wanting to keep their kids out of football, and these new academies giving talented kids a concrete path to pro sports as early as 8 years old, I think we'll see a huge influx of talent over the next decade. Also, the current US youth teams are actually very promising. The Under-17 team won 2nd place in both the 2017 and 2019 CONCACAF Championships, and made it to the quarterfinal in the 2017 World Cup. The U-20 team also made it to the quarter final of this year's World Cup (after beating #1 ranked France). With the new money going into the sport, I don't think it would be surprising if the US starts being a dominant global player in the near future.
  14. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Just come up with a cool tincture or shrub and add it to any standard cocktail. Garnish with a fresh herb.
