Yeah, I don't know why people still try and post links to marbleduck crap, considering he's terrible at the game and his opinions about it
are objectively not good.
K then :D

Someone did a tremendous amount of work on this, it's noteworthy (but sadly, no people rendered)

Furthermore spring is finally alive and kicking:

Quoted from "Miffyli"

While I'd love to see more "HNGGG" pictures (while not being able to share many that make me HNGGG daily due to pastel colors), I must agree with . . .

Today I learnt that


has some strange reading of the rules. Last I checked, Pastels weren't banned.

Though they were for a while if I remember. Soko banned them once, was pretty funny.

GW2 Related Pastels

You could get really close to these ingame actually, I've seen a few done well. Pinkie there can definitely be done. the rifle is appropriately named the Birthday Blaster. I've got one of those. You could also get the actual weapon variant, though it'd take a decent amount of effort.

And of course, the GW2 legendary shortbow fires rainbow unicorns at people.

Oh yeah, there's also THIS

Weeeell it's an imaginary rule :v. Many don't like seeing such things and there would be little benefit in sharing them, so as a whole it's prob better if avoid sharing pastel colors.

And yeah, references be everywhere :v.

Also, side note, I got two legendaries yesterday in BL2 while playing through some of the side missions (not farming), a Transformer and Veruc. That's probably been some of my best luck to date.
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

I... I...



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.

Got my uni exams coming up next week, reading an article about the Western civilising mission ideology when I came across this paragraph:

Spoiler Spoiler

The conditions under which the soldiers and Duhamel's protagonist-surgeon lived and the wasteland their combat wrought in northern France made a mockery of the European conviction that their unprecedented mastery of nature was proof of their superiority over all contemporary peoples and past civilizations. The filthy, lice-ridden bodies of the youth of Europe, exposed for weeks on end to the cold and mud of winter in Flanders or the valley of the Somme, fighting with huge rats for their miserable rations or their very limbs, belied the prewar conviction that superior science had given Western man dominion over nature. For Duhamel the flies that swarmed about the open latrines, garbage heaps, and dismembered corpses and carcasses of the unclaimed dead in the no-man's-land moonscape provided an ever-present reminder of the Europeans' reversion to a state of savagery, where they were continually buffeted by the forces of nature. Duhamel's surgeon-protagonist in Civilisation 1914-1918 is repelled by, but utterly incapable of fending off, the multitude of flies that suck the pus and blood of his patients and the larvae that multiply rapidly in their festering wounds.32 But the soldiers' vulnerability to the forces of nature represents only one of the inversions Duhamel and other chroniclers of the trench trauma associated with the colossal misuse of science and technology in the war. Duhamel concluded that the Western obsession with inventing new tools and discovering new ways to force nature to support material advancement for its own sake had inevitably led to the trench wasteland where "man had achieved this sad miracle of denaturing nature, of rendering it ignoble and criminal.

Really fucking well written and actually fun to read, unlike 90% of the drivel I have to go through.
Personally, i don't take a stance on whether or not there is a creating entity because i'm humble enough to realize, in my fucking insignificance, the concept escapes my comprehension with a lead of 9001 light years.

Spent every day off for the past MONTH taking classes to get certified by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation to be an instructor. This weekend was spent student teaching. It was also a miserable weekend, the weather was cold and wet for both days we spent on the range, and the thermostat in my car is stuck closed and it overheats so I had to ride my motorcycle about 40 miles through nearly freezing downpour just to get to and from the site.

But in the end I passed, got my certification, and graduated head of my class with an immediate job offer from the university that runs the program in my area!

So right now, though I'm cold, exhausted, and a little soggy, I'm incredibly enthused! :thumbsup:
All bike, all the time!
