2023.06.07 04:05 chbmg Saber - We Want More Balanced Matches! Here's How...

Saber - We Want More Balanced Matches! Here's How...
I'll try to keep this shorter - my last post on this subject was way too long. Brevity is not my strong suit. If you want a detailed analysis, I have one here: My Loquacious Windbag "Word Fort"
I polled the community and we overwhelmingly want most matches to be close/challenging (i.e. balanced): The Poll For Balance
Also, the community has confirmed that the single biggest issue for this game is a lack of balance/fixes: What went wrong with this game?
I put together a chart below to convey the gist of everything I said in my original post. Basically, this chart shows how games tend to snowball for one side or the other based mostly on how good/cooperative survivors are in a match. It only takes 1 bad/low-level survivor to start tilting a match in the demon's favor. Conversely, if all survivors are pretty good/cooperative and are all at level 25+, then the balance tilts more strongly in favor of survivors. At the more extreme ends of this pattern (2+ bad survivors OR a team of prestige survivors all playing their roles well), the game is completely lopsided.
NOTE: The red line below is how things look today. The green line represents what matches could be like with some simple changes.
Percentages above are just a rough estimate - the general PATTERN is the most important part to focus on
Anyway, it's undeniable at this point that most matches are unbalanced. Survivors who yell "demon OP" are likely experiencing more games on the left of the chart, esp. in solo q, and demons who yell "survivors OP" are likely experiencing more games on the right of the chart, esp. against survivors who group up. I play both roughly equally, so I see a lot of this from both sides.
The general problem with balance in this game is that most matches are "stomp or be stomped." Close games are rare, and I think it's much easier to see why with a visual representation.
Also, the game is worse for newcomers than ever before - they're up against even stronger opponents (up to P5) compared to those of us who started after release but before prestige was a thing. This game might be the most hostile online competitive game for newbies that I've ever seen. The vast majority will quit. We need "new blood" for the game to survive. It cannot just be hardcore survivors vs hardcore demons - that scenario will currently favor hardcore survivors so demons will quit, queue times for survivors will reach new heights, and the game will die.
The answer is NOT to just buff/nerf one side. Instead, the answer is to elevate "bad" survivor teams (as in, 1+ "bad" teammates) and challenge "good" survivor teams (as in, the teams that can melt a boss right after it spawns). Similarly, you would also want to elevate "bad/new" demons and challenge "good/veteran" demons. If you do all this together, the chart can look more like the green line and we'll all have more matches that feel balanced.
It's literally painful as someone with a background in programming and game dev to see how easily balance can be improved. I've tweaked the recommendations from my last post to try to stick to the least controversial changes and I'm only listing stuff that can be easily implemented by Saber (as in, most are literally just a couple lines of code).
Proposed Changes:
  1. Fix the "dodge into trap" workaround for fear-looping. Basically, ACTUALLY fix Baal (fear-looping via dodging is mostly only used by veteran demons and not used by newbies). Revert demon traps to their previous behavior for all other demons (this mostly benefits novice demons and mostly just makes games slightly more challenging for lone-wolf veteran survivors)
  2. Make vaulting cost stamina (looping a demon through buildings/railings is mostly only used by veteran survivors)
  3. Create hints for new players at the match loading screen that are clear and direct (more details in original post). Also, add flashing text in the bottom-center of the screen that alerts survivors that they're "playing stupid" (i.e. "the [insert weapon name] you are holding should go to [insert character with this weapon specialty], you should try giving 2 of your 3 Shemps to [insert Support name], you are [insert distance over 100m] from any teammates and should return to them, the [insert "dagger" or "pages"] objective is running - you need to go there, etc.). Obviously, these hints could drastically help new/bad survivors, esp. in solo q
  4. Give out a bonus XP for "good behavior" (not demolishing newbies), cancel XP for “toxic behavior” (flashlight clicking as survivor, dancing on corpses as demon), level up demon based on levels of victims (e.g. less for downing noobs, more for downing pros - base it on the internal MMR stats that Saber already has, rather than just level/prestige). These changes all make the game more welcoming to newbies on both sides
  5. Do not allow dagger and pages objectives to run simultaneously (this "split cap" method is usually only used successfully by veteran survivors, can sometimes be impossible to counter, and can also conversely cause a guaranteed loss for survivors when tried by newbies)
  6. Add a call out in the in-game communication wheel to say "I need help" for survivors. This simple change could help anyone in solo q
  7. Adjust chest rarity RNG based on the overall skill level of survivors (this can also be based more on the internal MMR stats that we know Saber already tracks since we used to have SBMM, rather than just player level/prestige). Also, if a player disconnects, all unopened chests on the map should immediately go up in value (i.e. grey to blue, blue to purple, purple to gold, and gold obviously stays gold). This change literally perfectly challenges veterans and helps bad/unlucky teams, resulting directly in more balanced games
  8. More double XP/SP events. Also, give a one-time bonus of at least 200k+ SP to anyone with zero prestige characters (this helps them quickly get at least 1 survivor or demon up near lvl 25 so they aren't just totally stomped all the time). This helps balance out everyone
Q: Why not just use skill-based matchmaking (SBMM) for balanced matches?
A: Because we don't currently have enough players - queue times would be too high. Also, it still doesn't address the fact that most matches tend to snowball too much right now.
Q: These are just survivor nerfs!
A: That's not a question and no they are not. Please try again. Also, please try demon for a few days.
Q: These are just demon nerfs!
A: That's not a question and no they are not. Please try again. Also, please try solo q for a few days.
Q: Why post a lot of the same stuff again?
A: I made some important changes and my last post fell on some deaf ears. I love the Evil Dead and I love the game and I want it to succeed so we can all keep enjoying it.
A Note To Saber:
Saber, you've said you want to see what the players want and here it is. We want more balanced games and it's so easy to do this stuff in the next patch. More balance = more happy newbies + veterans = higher player numbers = more DLC sales = profit. Please don't just fall back on the same tired buffs and nerfs - give some thought to what's actually wrong and fix it already.
Please get this in front of decision-makers and restore faith in the loyal fans of this game. Otherwise, we're just gonna keep thinking of this whenever we see anything from Saber...

2023.06.07 04:02 californiawaters AA not in person anymore?

Hi 26F, looking to attend an AA class. I’ve went on and even searched “aa near me” on google. each one i tried to show up to, empty building, no cars in the parking lot. i’m careful of finding the ones that say online only, because i’m tired of driving to the supposed AA meetings for no one to be there. I’ve been to an AA meeting in 2021 in Kansas, but since being back in southern california I can’t find a single one that’s operating.
If you happen to live in southern california, could anyone confirm with me that this is a california thing? or should i check a different website? i really don’t know.

2023.06.07 04:01 Mental-Philosopher28 Are the boys meeting fans after the show?

During the Fall 2021 tour I waited forever after the Buffalo show to try to meet the boys and didn’t get to. Based on another post I saw on here, I think I missed Alex and Jack by ~10 minutes after I finally gave up after about 90 minutes or so after the show. (Truly one of my biggest regrets tbh) I was just wondering if anyone had stuck around and actually met any of them after the show this tour or if I shouldn’t bother.

2023.06.07 04:01 Ok-Landscape3367 This just sucks

My dad died in October 2021, and I got emotionally attached to this one teacher. I saw similarities between him and my dad, and he has two little girls of his own. I am a Junior, so i do have the chance to be in a club he hosts next year, but today was my last class I’ll have with him. Everything is sort of starting to hit me now, and I haven’t cried like I am crying now in years. I got to tell him about my dad dying today, and how his classes over the last two years have helped me, and it was great being able to do that. It has already been a hard few months, and now there’s so much going on in my head, it’s hard to pull out one coherent thought. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Any advice? Even if you haven’t experienced this, I’m looking for any kind of response.

2023.06.07 04:00 Minatozaki_Lenny Why didn’t the native Americans rebel more often against the Spaniards?

There’s an intellectual movement that tries to celebrate the conquest and colonization of the Americas called hispanism They claim that Spain was just that good that no one wanted to revel and the natives simply abandoned their culture (in its purest form) and autonomy and empires in the name of Spain and the Catholic Church But I just can’t comprehend that, and the most common argument they use is “if Spain was so bad why didn’t anyone rebel?” Can you illustrate me more on this topic and also in the nature of rebellions against minorities ruling over different ethnicities? Why so much claimed native support? They also claim the natives never supported the independence The only important rebellions I know of is Manco Inca and Tupac Amaru II

2023.06.07 03:59 Vermont_Sparkler F4M In Vermont

Hello all! I am a 29 year old woman from Vermont seeking a good, Godly man to marry and have children with! I enjoy reading, trying new recipes, listening to sermons and getting out in nature. I am in the process of finding a new home church since I recently moved to Vermont from out of state.
I am not opposed to relocating, if things went well with someone and we were marriage minded, but for ease of dating obviously it would be easiest to meet someone semi-close.
I believe in very traditional gender roles, homeschooling, and a pretty conservative worldview. I’d love to chat more if you’re interested.
And if you’re a woman looking for friends I wouldn’t turn it down!

Apartment Recommendations for 2 Young Women?
Hello! I currently live in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Denver but am hoping to get out of the city. My roommate and I are both females in our early 20’s and working professionals. We just want to feel safe!!! We have 2 large breed, highly trained dogs (one being an ESA). Please enjoy this picture of their Halloween costumes haha
We are looking for a minimum of 2 bedroom for under $2200. Preferably in the ParkeHighlands Ranch/Lonetree, Littleton, Golden, Arvada areas. We applied to The Summit at Red Rocks and got scammed out of $400 and cannot get a call or email back.
Any recommendations? Any places to avoid?? We’ve reached out to Stone Canyon, Montane, and Cortland. TIA!

2023.06.07 03:58 KingSnazz32 An email from a friend explaining post-Mormon vs. ex-Mormon

I found this from an email many years ago that a friend wrote about some church stuff. He had some great thoughts here that I thought might be interesting to some.
Re: post-Mormon vs. Ex-Mormon. A post-Mormon, as I see it has more or less moved to the world of the non-Mormon. Like non-Mormons, they rarely, if ever, consider the LDS faith. When they do consider the church, they may feel a variety of emotions: admiration, condescension, indifference, etc. The church rarely if ever impinges upon the life of the post-Mormon for good or ill.
Having said that, I think it’s very difficult for most former LDS members to achieve this state. Unless they are converts living outside of Utah, they will have family and friends who remain members and many remain married to a believer. Given the LDS worldview, it is only natural that they should face ongoing reconversion efforts, as well as occasional denunciations.
There are two main aspects to severing one’s membership in the church. First, are the eternal consequences. If the church is what it claims to be, then leaving the church bears a very high cost indeed. If it is not, the stakes are equally high. Either there is some other course that God wants us to choose, in which case we are wandering dangerous paths by staying with the church, or there isn’t, in which case we may be wasting the only life we know that is given to us.
The second aspect is the cost/benefit The costs of leaving the church have been fairly high in my case, but so have been the rewards. This what I believe I have lost/gained.
  1. Distance from family and friends – I am estranged from certain friendships. My relationship with my family will never be the same. In a very real sense I will always be on the outside of the family, not sharing in its goals and dreams.
  2. Severing of my ancestral roots – Some of my ancestors sacrificed a great deal to join the church and migrate to Utah. I feel bad that I no longer value those sacrifices as I once did.
  3. Lingering resentment – I feel as though I wasted many years and a good deal of effort in supporting what I now consider to be a parasitic entity. It took much, and it gave little. I will be healthier when I can shed the last, lingering resentment that I feel, but I haven’t yet managed to do so.
  1. Personal Integrity – I no longer suffer a disconnect between what my mind tells me and what the church teaches either implicitly or explicitly. I can believe that humans migrated to the Americas from Siberia, that there were fully modern humans living on the Earth tens of thousands of years ago. I don’t have to believe that God “chooses” some people over others, and I no longer care whether or not someone is a homosexual. I no longer have to believe that human civilization will meet a violent end sometime in the next few years and as a result believe that the way we treat the Earth really does matter. I no longer believe that all good things come from God, but can celebrate human genius and natural beauty on their own merits.
  2. Time – I have much more free time than I once did. Time that once would have been spent sitting through meetings, doing or receiving home teaching, reading the Book of Mormon, attending the temple, and a good deal of church-related busy-work is now spent writing, reading, taking naps, traveling, skiing, hiking, etc.
  3. Financial – few active Mormons would believe it, but I have more money now that I don’t give 10% of my gross income to the church. This money I use for saving, travelling, and other charitable giving that I could not have previously afforded.
  4. General Happiness – Once again, it’s hard for people who are happy inside the church (and I believe there are many) to believe it, but I’m happier outside the church than I ever was inside. I have no more worry that I’m not doing enough, no more misplaced guilt because when I fasted I was merely hungry and not spiritually aware. I no longer elevate some people above others because they have the Gospel, the priesthood, or are church leaders. If President Hinckley [KingSnazz32: like I said, it's been many years] gives advice, I can take it or leave it on its own merits and not feel pressured to follow it because I believe he has a direct line to God. Collectively, removing these concerns has been like lifting sandbags from my shoulders. I can stand tall—you might denounce it as proud—and find my own path in this life.

2023.06.07 03:58 arvaname Summer as Summer Ought to Be - Djokovic / Alcaraz thoughts and Golden Era reflection

A video popped into my YouTube recommended today, from a channel called “peRFect tennis” – it's a seventeen minute bundle of beatdown highlights: the great Roger Federer slapping around some random I’d barely heard of named Julian Reister. The occasion is the 2010 French Open; third round – thirteen years ago now. And watching it I noticed something interesting:
I’d forgotten what it was like to see a true generational talent in their prime.
Oh sure, Reister does well to scour some games, and it’s clear that Federer enters power-saver mode after a savage 6-0 second set, but every ball comes back to Reister with interest; and even when Reister makes some miraculous, winner-shot, you always know that Federer will find the effortless god-slice or the perfect stretched forehand.
And then I realized something else, something kinda terrifying: for the first time in God knows how long, the real generational talent, the star of the show, is not a member of the Big Three; and for the first time since Djokovic won his maiden slam, a member of the Big Three feels properly outgunned in a major match.
Carlos Alcaraz is now Federer, and while Djokovic is well above Resiter, he’s not a generational talent in his prime. What we’ve seen over the last five years, since the 2018 Wimbledon Semifinal between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic is the slow and final motion in the unparalleled symphony that is the Big Three era.
But now, half the band has bowed out, and all that remain are the strings with a rare infusion of woodwinds. And the piece is slowing, scraping to a somber halt as the audience gets a long exhale to reflect on everything they’ve just seen. If 2018 Wimbledon began the end, the 2021 French Open semifinal between Nadal and Djokovic was a final regression to the incredible motif underlying the whole composition.
I don’t know when it changed, when Djokovic got a step slower. But he did. The first step he lost was after his 2017 slump, you could see when he returned to the top of the game in 2018 that while still basically unbeatable on hard and grass, and still contesting and claiming big clay court titles, he’d just lost a step; the time signature had changed and all his measures now had fewer notes and fewer beats.
Then it happened again, maybe after the 2020 COVID reset, or maybe during the 2021 Australian Open, where Novak – despite not really looking good at all, through like, the whole fucking tournament – just plowed through the field. Or perhaps it was after 2021 Wimbledon, where the stress of three consecutive slam winds finally ground something in Djokovic out of stasis. And then, we’ve seen one final lost step just in the last year, during the Australia deportation.
I don’t think that these events caused these subtle slips, but the time away allowed our eyes a chance to sober, and when Djokovic returned, each time we could see the new seeds of mortality growing and germinating under a great garden of godhood.
And now, where are we? Roger Federer is retired. Fallen away after a sad and sputtering comeback that ended with a bagel and a busted knee, washed out of Wimbledon by Hurkacz, the man who I think literally everybody has forgotten won a Masters title. Nadal is incognito, channeling his incredible albeit short-lived strength for some chimera-hurrah tour, romp around the globe, victory lap after one of the greatest careers of all time. And Djokovic is three steps slower than he was eight years ago.
The time of Federer – Reister matches is over; the long summer and longer fall of the Big Three is over, and this Alcaraz match feels like the first snow of Winter. Perhaps the best comparison is with the Agassi – Nadal and Agassi – Federer records; Agassi beat Nadal and Federer in big matches, but Agassi was only going down, and Fedal were only going up.
Even if Djokovic plows past Carlos, which he could, it’s clear that a new year is beginning, and just as each Roman year was remembered mainly by the rulers of the day, this new year, will not be the year of Federer, or Nadal, or Djokovic. It will be the year of Alcaraz, or Rune, or the Next-Next-Next-Next-Next-Gen Conglomerate.
I’m a big fantasy fan and fantasy writer. My books suck, so don’t ask to read them. And one thing I’ve noticed in all walks of fantasy, from big-grandpa Lord of the Rings to Game of Thrones to Dark Souls is the Third-Age Obsession: if the first age is some establishing period crescendoing into some spastic war of magic and impossibly large arms, and the second age is the dulling silver-spur that follows then the Third Age is the end of the decline, where magic is at its weakest, and the world at its bleakest.
2003-2011 were the First Age, 2011-2013 were the great war that propelled us into the Second Age, 2011-2019 was the Second Age, and the COVID lapse the gap that shuffled us neatly into the third age.
Monfils, Murray, Wawrinka, del Potro, and the rest of the Golden Gen and Lost Gen are retired or hobbled. Federer is done, Nadal packing it up for a farewell, and Djokovic clinging on to an increasingly slippy pole at the peak of the game.
And all we can really do now is long - for the time of magic. For the time where impossible shots came out on speed-dial...
Put Rosewall and Laver on a court and you will see a few all-time great shots. But you will also find two hours of the most tedious, worn tennis.
In this third and transitory age, glimpses of godhood have gotten rarer and rarer. Djokovic pulls them out randomly to remind some Next-Gen that they’re not worth shit; Nadal just goes ham to make the child in Medvedev stop dreaming. But it’s not a throughline anymore.
Going into the Alcaraz match, everybody knows Djokovic has the level - and everybody remembers when summertime was summer as summer ought to be, when the songs were sweet, the winds were soft, and it seemed this great dream would never end.
I don’t care if Alcaraz beats Djokovic. I only care about Etcheverry, honestly. But what I yearn for, more than anything else, is for Djokovic to remind Alcaraz, and the world, that he is Novak Djokovic: and he (with Rafa and Roger) reigned over the greatest summer this sport has ever seen.
(note: sorry mods, I keep reposting this to make subtle changes because i'm an insecure ass, that's why there's like 7 deleted posts with a similar title)

2023.06.07 03:55 FruitSoft5030 Fang Zhouzi, a hero in the fight against counterfeits

He used to be a doctor returning from overseas or a defender of anti-counterfeiting in the eyes of many netizens on the internet, but now he is fighting against it, but he has embarked on a path of smearing his country and seeking glory as a "banana man".
He was born into a very ordinary family, different from ordinary boys. Fang Zhouzi doesn't like to play and his favorite thing is to read at home. The books he likes are literary works from a long time ago, some ancient poems and songs. It can be said that in the field of literature, Fang Zhouzi is quite talented. Fang Zhouzi's parents found that their children like reading, I made every effort to provide my children with education when my family was not wealthy. He was given the highest quality resources, and Fang Zhouzi did not disappoint his parents' expectations. With his own efforts, he was admitted to the University of Science and Technology of China. After graduation, he had a valuable opportunity to study in the United States with excellent grades. Although in a foreign country, Fang Zhouzi also pursued a master's degree and became the pride of his father and teachers.
During this period in the United States, he gradually became a defender of anti-counterfeiting on the internet. No one would have imagined that his attitude towards his country had slowly begun to change. Later on, he even established a special anti counterfeiting website, which openly criticized various unreasonable traditional customs and many trivial matters. Fang Zhouzi would go to crack down on counterfeiting, not to mention those so-called big shots and many well-known public figures, who were the targets of Fang Zhouzi's criticism. As long as those people had any information to conceal from the public, Fang Zhouzi will be exposed, or it may be because this character is controversial that he still has many enthusiastic fans online. At this point, everyone was completely unaware that Fang Zhouzi, who had been abroad for a long time, had already been infused with Western ideas.
With the increasing popularity of the internet, Fang Zhouzi, who likes to crack down on fake products, seems to have a big problem of his own. In the United States, it is claimed that traditional Chinese medicine has no scientific basis and is simply fake, far inferior to Western medicine. Although he does not engage in online debates with Chinese people, he clearly changed his face when facing foreigners.
Fang Zhouzi also established a foundation, but later relevant departments investigated and found that it was just an institution used by Fang Zhouzi to launder money. For example, he would collaborate with lawyers to deceive those who did not understand the law, and the money obtained was eventually turned into cars and houses by Fang Zhouzi and lawyers. When others scolded him, he didn't admit it at all. If Fang Zhouzi had a moral flaw, it would be even more infuriating. He had already become a traitor, a clown who worshipped foreign things. From the previous crackdown on counterfeits to the current smear campaign against his motherland, Fang Zhouzi had truly achieved a seamless connection, and inappropriate remarks appeared on the internet one by one without conducting sufficient investigation and understanding of the truth, He began his crazy journey of cracking down on counterfeits, making enemies everywhere and sparking many meaningless curses. It was under such ridiculous and inappropriate remarks time and time again that Fang Zhouzi's image fell to the bottom. He seemed like a street mouse, and whenever he appeared on the internet, he would be despised and beaten by everyone.

2023.06.07 03:54 proteinthrowaway12 I'm tired of christians

I have grown so so tired of the entitlement of Christians in America. This also goes for Catholics, Mormons, etc. but I will stick to referring to them as Christians as the umbrella term. I'm more of an agnostic theist and very comfortable in my system of beliefs, but everywhere I go so many people are preaching to me about God, and how God has blessed me with my talents, and that God has gotten me this far, and that God will get me through whatever I'm struggling with at the time. I'm perfectly fine with others believing in God and practicing their beliefs, but I draw the line when it comes to them pushing them on me.
It has gotten to the point that when I'm looking for someone to date, if I see that they're Christian it's an automatic deal breaker. I have reservations about even befriending someone who's Christian. I don't know if it's exclusive to American Christianity, but people just build their entire identity around it and seem to think it's their mission to speak for God and punish those who are "different", and decide what exactly it is that God wants from us.
I once had a Christian friend of mine tell me that she envisioned she was "planting seeds" in my mind that would eventually grow into Christian beliefs. And other Christian friends gasp and balk at our friend who was an atheist in middle school, deciding it was their mission to "save her" and bring her to church ceremonies. I just can't understand having the kind of gall to decide whether or not someone else's religious beliefs are okay or not, and even going so far as to say that they have to believe in a certain thing to be saved. I could go on and on, but the main thing that gets me is, isn't God supposed to love everyone? Isn't that his whole thing? If that's truly what they believe, then why are they so worked up about whether someone believes in God or not?
This is all sort of coming to a head for me and I needed to get it off my chest. My state is over 3/4 Christian, as well as being conservative and red. Everywhere I go, I can't escape people and commercials and billboards telling me to accept Jesus. Mormon kids show up at my door wanting to talk. I'm just really worn down by it all, especially by all the hate that's spread from it. The thing I want most of all is for them to shut their mouths and leave me be, like I let them be. Man.

2023.06.07 03:53 Glass-Papaya-1133 Central air

Hey everyone. I bought my first house July of 2021. It was built in the 1900s so it’s a little old. I want to do central air but I’ve got duct work from having forced gas heat. Has anyone added central air having had ducts already? What was the cost of that. I’m in Indiana if that helps.

2023.06.07 03:53 Appropriate_Fish_162 Looking for Crossbars - 2022 Highlander

Total shot in the dark, but does anyone have cross bars they don’t want??
Reason I’m asking is I’m sure most of you, like me, didn’t have a choice in the features and accessories that came with your highlander in 2022 and 2023. Mine did not come with crossbars, unfortunately.
So before I look into buying them, I thought I’d first check to see if any of you fine people simply had a set you didn’t want, took off already, and would be open to sending them my way.
Message me if you do! Much appreciated.

2023.06.07 03:52 JeanMariee Thoughts, Suggestions, Ideas, HELP!

I filed for a K-1 Visa in November 2021. Today I was finally able to submit an inquiry due to my case being outside normal processing times. I got a reply back already and it says "Your case is currently delayed because the required security checks are still pending. We cannot make a decision on your case until we receive the results of these security checks"
Please does anyone have experience with this, I have so many questions, I don't know how to proceeded or how to get more answers, its so hard to talk to a person at USCIS. I hoping that I can be proactive about this, I'm sick of just sitting on my hands and waiting.
