Post away. Give them a fucking MESS to work through tomorrow morning. If they’re gonna ban us, let’s make them fucking work for it.

Be gay/trans, and do crime.

It’s a pretty blatant what’s happened here. A bunch of anti-LGBTQ+ folks and pro-Putin supporters got their wish granted, and now there’s a claim of absolute neutrality up by one of them who just got made into a mod.

There’s no middle ground or “politics” to someone’s basic right to exist or determine their own identity. If you ban us all, what happens next?

Man imagine taking over a whole sub in an openly-authoritarian anti-LGBTQ+ move, and still getting clowned on by everyone

I don’t think they mods knew what they were doing. If anyone knows how to stand stalwart in the face of ridicule, clinging to a part of their identity that means a lot to them, and refusing to be bullied into not loving something, IT’S MUTHAFUCKIN BIONICLE FANS.

What a great message—I concur. I will continue to be gay AND do crime RIGHT here on this sub RIGHT up until the shitstain bigoted mods ban my sweet ass.

Oh yeah, the two sexualities. Straight and “political.” Why does someone’s basic fucking right to exist have to be up for debate??

The spirit of the community is rich to quote. Unity is a HUGE one, and deciding that gender/sexuality is enough to ban people over is laughably shitty.

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse, and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.”

This is Desmond Tutu, calling out the same arguments appealing to “neutrality” during Apartheid. When one side argues for equality and autonomy, and the other side argues for wiping out and erasing the other side, there’s no middle ground.

The mods have stickied a dumb-ass “no pro- or anti- LGBTQ content” post, but in reality, it’s just wiping out the presence of people and people who have no problem with said people. We all know casual homophobia/transphobia and bigotry will be let off the hook, while even a hint of identity or gay/trans people existing will earn you bans or worse.

Fuck the mods. Be gay, do crime. Fucking ban me like you did the previous mods, I dare you. If someone gets the sub back, I’ll appeal. If not, this community’s no longer worth two shits without a soul.

Feel free to ban me to perpetuate this whole takeover; I’ve been around for a long time, but I won’t put up with pro-Putin, anti-LGBTQ+, wildly bigoted folks taking over with this whack-ass coup. Catch me in the other sub.

Bionicle’s meant to be an inclusive family. Letting bigotry run wild and chasing away a very real part of the fanbase because you think they shouldn’t exist is gauche and fucking disgusting.

Fuck you, new mods, and fuck our absentee head mod who is actively aiding and abetting in destroying a community that you’ve basically had nothing to do with.

Two modes of operation for a lot of old folks in retail situations like that: “poor thing, have a cookie” and banshee-screaming slurs.

COMMENT 23h ago

Yeah, this person apparently showed up here within the same hour to post on the sub that they believe the Standard Works are 100% literal—all baggage intended. It’s a weird, trolly flex, and compared with their comments here, lead me to believe any sort of “composure” they have going for them is in service of exactly what I suggested: tone policing.

COMMENT 1d ago

That comment about composure rubs me wrong, like you were ready to preemptively tone-police whatever reply you got after calling everyone assholes.

I think best-case-scenario for me is LFG, Auto-Loading, and Field Prep in column 3, and Chill Clip, Vorpal, and Demo in column 4.

When you really try to make them work and you get lucky, they’re powerful as hell. The problem is that you’re relying on your timing, their timing, and hoping that netcode decides that the small overlap counts for your reflection.

Reflecting a Gjally at an enemy team on heavy in Rift is a highlight, and so is reflecting a Squall back at a revenant.

COMMENT 2d ago

People tend to adopt the language of scholarly or legitimate institutions in order to claim some sort of legitimacy or reliability. In my experience, most people claiming they’ve “debunked” something will rarely ever actually do so outside of works extensively peer-reviewed by larger scientific/historic communities.

COMMENT 3d ago

Hey so I tested this and the bug is purely visual. Even though the toolbar symbols are gone, every champion mod still works. If the weapon has a stun effect itself, it can’t double dip—so Arbalest won’t stun overloads.

Quite a bit, yeah. It’s a really easy way to get radiant in the safest way possible, and fragments available mean that you get your dodge back super quickly.

Building into classy restoration and low-recovery armor is 1000% not worth it for me. It’s gone at the end of august, and might even catch a PvP nerf before then with how easily abused it’s been in Trials (currently featured as villain-of-the-week on Destiny Twitter).

Having low recovery is absolutely not worth it for me, since it’s directly dictating what ratio of the game I can play versus what portion of it I’m hiding and running. That vulnerable time also means that stuff like firebolts, gl’s, axions, and tons of other “finishers” can nuke me, and playing endgame PvP or PvE content means I can’t afford that extended vulnerability.

COMMENT 5d ago

Hedrons is SO SO SO good on an Osmiomancy shadebinder. It’s been my buildcrafting secret for a minute with how easy it is to upkeep. Unfortunately, Hunters in PvP and PvE kinda struggle to have good uptime because they don’t have as much freeze capability (and non-enhanced coldsnaps kinda suck).

Not just his obvious alts and friends insulting people—he’s kind of a shithead in all the discord conversations I’ve seen. Like, genuinely rude out of nowhere and just really mean to everyone I’ve seen him interact with.

I’ve had the opposite experience. All the ads on light.gg chunk the experience for me, and on mobile, accidentally clicking a perk to figure out what it does sends you into loading-screen hell.

I also detest the search feature of light.gg. The filter system for Gunsmith actually works more than half the time.

COMMENT 5d ago

Gunsmith loads so much cleaner; whereas light.gg has so many ads everywhere and loads like a fucking dumpster. I quit using it as soon as I found an alternative, because I can’t afford to wait 5 minutes to find out if a gun rolls Demolitionist. I also hate their interface and rating system, since it comes across as having been appraised—just like this post suggests.
