well to be fair, i only passed it around because my brother told me to, i just listened and liked it, didn't give it much thought as i heard it pretty much only half a time.

p.s.: that's only the first part anyway, now i didn't listen to it fully yet, but i don't remember in the hall of the mountain king being present in the song after the first 2 minutes, and anyway you're comparing an orchestra to a single flute, which btw, personally, i don't feel like it's a bad flute... it is used like that willingly, i'm sure you too can hear that.

Is...Is this happening?!?! Am I dreaming right now?!?!?!?!?! A new Crystalic album?!?!?! 8o

Background: Crystalic are fucking awesome and I'm fairly certain that "Too Dark To See" (below) is one of a small handful of seminal songs that kick-started my now near-rabid love of Extreme Metal!!!!! But, from what I've gathered over the years, poor Crystalic hasn't had an easy life: near-constant stops and starts, ever-changing lineups, the assumed-quantum-blackhole that spontaneously ate all of their albums (4-5 years trying to find their second album, ironically called "Persistence", and all I've managed to find is a DDL version), and I can only imagine the reasons behind all the inconsistencies! There's been chatter for years about a new album, singles have been released (below, both are FUCKING INSANELY GOOD, with the recently-ish-released "Lila Ruined" being quite possibly one of the greatest songs I've ever heard) but then the lineups would seemingly dissolve again or all would suddenly go dark once more...
Now I'll say this, however: I've never seen this level of activity in my time of following them so I'm hyped!!! Songs have been written, the drums are DONE (as mentioned in the video above), this could actually be happening!!!!! 8o

A few examples of their work


-In chronological order!





...Unfortunately, typing all this makes me once-again lament that I DON'T HAVE THEIR STUFF ON CD!!!!! DDL is nice but it's not pwetty CDs in pwetty cases in my pwetty stereo! I need them! I want them!!! There are a few copies of Watch Us Deteriorate kicking around but I want Persistence dammit!!!
...Hmm...I'll write this on my whiteboard of things and address it in the morning, it is waaaaaaaay too late to formulate plans :P

this
Yes Live 11th Dec 1974 Boston King Biscuit Flower Hour Broadcast - YouTube
the(arguably, unfortunately) best live recording of sound chaser there has been from yes.
i thought to study it a bit, and low and behold, in various parts of the song, but mainly in the intro the members mainly play at 5/4, but the drummer, and i assume others as well in the other parts of the song(though i am certain of only the drummer at the start) play at a different time, specifically in his 4/4 end end up meeting each time.
this live version of close to the edge it's also awesome, though the different position of instruments and recorder make it sound quite a bit more different than it was intended, especially with the prevalently bad audio quality.

i'm also listening some Weather Report following my read up of jojo part 6(stone ocean) but i'm not sure of what to check first, so every once in a while i also listen to mixed pieces of random bands such as soft machine.


i've also chosen to download most of the deep purple discography, i never noticed how before the "made in" series of lives their lives where almost all the same in terms of which songs they played, and i came to realize why mandrake root was considered by themselves one of their most iconic pieces back then.
though to be fair their 3rd album is possibly the best one with april, even if some songs later on have interesting sounds(considering how they departed from prog and made hard rock popular) such as for example the live song "the mule" or the middle part of "rat bat blue".


i also have intention of listening this later, as it was mentioned where i found the yes live.
Gryphon - Red Queen to Gryphon Three [1974] [FULL ALBUM] - YouTube

Currently playing O Fortuna in my orchestra, going to eventually accompany a choir.


It's not a bad piece or anything, it's just overplayed. And the violin part... well, the violin part is so laughably easy and boring it could be played by a literal 5 year old.

I'm not exaggerating either. It requires you to pluck the same two notes for about 40 bars. Great fun.
something something Model 8 bestgun


How to ice an A-91

Next, wanna try adding a guy that you KNOW is bad, and just testing to see that? Example: PP-2000 (god I so wanna love this gun, and yet...)

Example: PP-2000 (god I so wanna love this gun, and yet...)

PP-2000 added. Y'know, it's not that bad....

Yes, it comes in last so far, but that is mostly because I'm making it shoot at 100m ADS - Not Moving as one of the criteria. Even then, between 50-100m Not Moving, when you include Useability, it is only 1.37% worse than the MTAR-21. Within 50m then it even beats the A-91.

Have a look, vs. the A-91 Carbine:




Using it with Muzzle Brake and Compensator is a wash in terms of overall performance. Comp is SLIGHTLY more accurate, while MB is SLIGHTLY more easy to use. Their overall scores are basically tied, with MB just ahead. I guess either can be recommended.

But... You can't be counting for the fact that it takes 9 bullets to kill at "long" range... Don't you dare tell me my A-91 is worse than a 9 BTK 650 RPM mediocre PDW.

Also. Just go heavy barrel. The recoil is low enough.

Well, technically...

Comparing a PP2K with HB and an A-91 with comp and stubby (as you suggested in an earlier post), at 50m not moving, the A-91 is only better by 4 damage per hitrate. While at 75m and 100m, surprisingly the PP2K does better than the A-91 (I'm pretty damn surprised as well).

And 10m and 50m moving the PP2K also does more damage per hitrate than the A-91. At 25m the A-91 is only better by about half a bullet's damage as well.

In addition, the PP2K has a much larger mag size and substantially less recoil. And it looks hella awesome. So comparing the A-91 to a PDW is of some worth after all, as the PP2K is better (technically, not practically) than the A-91.

Mind blown.

I... I...

*cries in a corner*

Zer0Cod3x explained it very well. If you look at the raw numbers right here on Symthic Comparison, you can see how that happened:

A-91 vs PP-2000 | BF4 Weapon Comparison | Symthic

A-91's "23%" RPM advantage only afforded it 1 extra round.

Reload times are wash.

Velocities are wash.

V-Recoil are wash (and this is HBar on PP2k vs. A-91 without).

Hipfire and ADS - Moving are better on the PP2k, but it's a PDW and not the surprising part.

The surprising part is that, as equipped (and we see above that PP2k HBar has almost same V-Recoil as A-91 without HBar so why not?), the PDW performs better at 50 - 100m than a bloody Carbine. Why?

H-Recoil Spread, 0.525 vs. 0.45, advantage PP2k.

SIPS, 42% better on the PP2k.

And here is the most important part. ADS - Not Moving Spread, 0.35 vs. 0.2, 43% improvement.

Without HBar then of course the PP2k loses, which is why when I add all the attachments together for an Overall Ranking, it would slot below the A-91. Run HBar on it, though, then... I'm sorry

@Veritable
@Zer0Cod3x
I... I...
But...
Wha...
I AM HAVING AN EXISTENTIAL CRISIS IN SCHOOL BECAUSE OF YOU TWO.

FUCK YOU NERDS AND YOUR FANCY NUMBERS

SEXY RUSSIAN BULLPUPS FTW.

In all seriousness, thank you both so much for giving me the numbers. I still don't want to accept them. You have led the horse to water. I still need to drink.
