When did fractal pugs get so tryhard?

2021.10.22 15:34 toucaan06 When did fractal pugs get so tryhard?

I recently started playing after "taking a short break" after PoF. I've been having a blast getting caught up to speed, especially running the new fractals. One thing I noticed was I don't recall fractal pugs ever being very organized. When I stopped, some pugs were catching on that bringing a Druid was a good idea, but for the most part everyone just ran whatever DPS. I would always try run Zerker for Might/banners, but didn't gaf about the rest of the comp. In the instance, the default was to just run/fight through the mobs. People would stop and explain if we were doing something different. I've been running fractals since they were released, and this yolo approach always seemed fine
Coming back I've noticed that 1) the majority of pugs now require an hb/alac and 2) the majority of pugs now require DwD
I geared up a cele hb & I can see why everyone wants one (decent dps/cc? heals?? stab/aegis?? quickness???). But tbh doesn't really seem like alac is worth it, it's not like fractal pugs are doing rotations down to the second, and everytime I open up lfg after reset I see like 4 groups "lf alac DwD t4s". It's gotta be faster to just take any old dps at that point right?
What prompted this post was reset fractals from a few days ago. All groups in LFG were asking for DwD, so I made my own. Fills up in a couple minutes, we do a fractal, next is Thaumnova. Do the events, get to the boss, "Oh cool, a new special action to protect the platform!" Everyone starts typing a number in chat, I ask what the number means. I get kicked!
I asked my guild and apparently it's the order you drop the special action in. So, I was genuinely surprised by the kick. I don't think I've ever been in a pug where at least 3 people would agree to kick someone for asking what ended up being a simple question. Not that people were nicer or anything, but there definitely seemed to be more patience?
This isn't meant to be a whiny post about a bad pug. I mostly was curious about how this mentality shifted over the past few years. I always had this mental image of the GW2 community as being kind of "care-bear" but in a good way. Teaching noobs was a badge of honor, it made you look like a pro!
I don't think this would matter if these kind of groups were the minority. But I regularly open up LFG and see only DWD groups (maybe because the non-tryhard groups fill up too fast). This shift towards gating T4s PUGS behind titles/tactics you can only get by extensively running T4s can't be healthy for the community. Most people's first exposure to higher-level fractals is through LFG, and most new people won't start their own group. So they open LFG, see these requirements, and are immediately turned off. And it's not like there's any point to gatekeeping, you really don't lose any time just teaching these people vs jerking off in Mistlock. 90% of fractal mechanics can be summed up in like two sentences. The status quo just seems like it'll lead to the gradual shrinking of the fractal community - most people that want DwD probably have it at this point, so the population will only get smaller
Anyways, these are just my rant/observations as a returning player, wanted to see how others felt

2021.10.22 15:34 Longjumping-Half-695 Best contacts for dry eyes

I've worn contacts since middle school. I'm currently in my 30s and can't find a comfortable lens since I was switched to dailes. I previously wore Acuvue 2. Since they are supposedly old technology and don't let your eyes get enough oxygen, my optometrist has tried me in several "better" lenses. They all dry out quickly and leave my eyes feeling gritty after a few hours. I'm constantly putting in drops, yet they are still uncomfortable. I've tried acuvue moist, Dailies Aquacomfort, Biotrue, Air Opix, Precision 1 and Bausch and Lomb Ultra. I don't normally experience dry eyes, only when wearing contacts do I experience symptoms. Is there a different lens I should try or are my contact lens days over?

2021.10.22 15:34 JnHdaughter The world needs restructuring

People need to start waking up and realizing that we, at birth, are conditioned to not be free thinkers. We are taught that we have to blindly follow what elders and people in power, say is right, just because they say so and can provide “facts and figures”. Or really just because “respect your elders”. Don’t get me wrong there are parents out there that are trying to break this mold, but they get hated on, bullied and told they are wrong. What bothers me most is it’s the majority. People out there are you all not tired of just blindly believing, are you not tired of things not making sense but when you question it, you are a “foil head” or a crazy “conspiracy theorist”. You all get why you all think that right? They want you to think that these people asking questions and against what they say are “facts” are nuts so you don’t start thinking for yourself the way they are. What’s sad is the majority will feed into this because, it’s easier to just believe in what these people are saying then to realize that, those people don’t really have your best interest at heart, they actually are doing it for the money, power, and control. Growing up in abuse has taught me, the abusers pick on the stronger kid, because they hate them for being a free thinker, they hate that they don’t just blindly conform like they did and the other kid(s) do. I ask you out there why is it so wrong to have a different outlook? Why is it so wrong to take the time and really see what it is that these people are seeing different? Just as a very good example, the “vaccine”. You are being told you need to take this right, that it prevents the spread of it, or lessens it, or if you get the Covid and you had the “vaccine” your symptoms will be less or it’s less likely you die from it. Which isn’t true. You still can get it and die from it, how less likely it is when you get the “vaccine” is truly unknown. You also realize there is no way you can tell that someone got the Covid from a vaccinated person or unvaccinated person right, that every single time you are being told this or that person caught Covid from an unvaccinated person, there is no way to prove that. It’s being said to scare you into doing what they want. It’s the same thing as telling your kid you better behave of the bogey man will get you. It’s so you get mad at all the unvaccinated and treat them badly and help to bully them into taking it. Why is it so hard to see what common sense tells you? What’s sadder is people don’t see it even when you tell them because all these doctors and scientists, these “educated” people are presenting these “facts and figures”. These people can make it say whatever they want to get you to do their own agenda. Please people I ask and beg you, WAKE UP! Question shit when it doesn’t make sense. Stop blindly following, just cause it’s easier to go along with the crowd. I ask you this how many times has the medical experts and scientists been wrong about shit? How many times have they told the masses something was safe and then years later, oops, sorry it wasn’t. How many times have we been told something was bad and causes cancer, only to find out oh wait it doesn’t it actually prevents it or just doesn’t and is safe? Why do you as an individual feel the need to, bully and hate and be mean to people and call them names because they refuse to just accept shit? Look you don’t have to agree with people but you don’t have to be an asshole either.

2021.10.22 15:34 Fulgarite Examples Of Rapid Observed Evolution

Examples of modern day rapid evolution. The elephants with no tusks has been in the headlines recently.
Since I used to be a creationist, I can see that many might say, 'that's natural selection' (which is an admission by itself as to mechanisms that work in nature). However, I note that the mosquito example involves a new species that cannot reproduce with its parent species ( this is true about goatsbeard plants too).
To me that's the very essence of evolution as to a hard break with the species barrier. At best, you could argue that it's 'microevolution' but that still fills the bill. Tack on a few eons and who knows what pops up. Like birds and dinosaurs.

2021.10.22 15:34 IsopodNo171 Do I have hpv ? (Link shows pictures)

I am a 19 y/o(M) so around 2018 when I was 16 me and my ex girlfriend had sex for the first time we had been dating since junior high and decided to call it quits around 10th grade feeling like we have outgrown each other , i then started to talk to more girls being that it was the first time I was single since about 8th grade , I almost had sex with this girl I met thru a friend but it didn’t happen because for some reason I couldn’t get hard that night But our private areas did touch , I didn’t talk to that girl for much longer. By the end of 2018 I met my girlfriend who I am still dating now . We didn’t have sex for the first time until I was about 17 after dating for almost a year she’s younger than me and I was her first sexual partner . A few days after we had sex I got a sharp pain inside my penis , I told her about it and with her sexual history she was sure it was nothing to worry about , i went to urgent care after talking to her about it and got a regular std screening tested for everything except for herpes, hiv/aids thinking it couldn’t be noting that serious given my sexual history . A few days later the doctors called me back and told me I tested negative for everything they tested me for . Then I thought I was in the clear , also around that time I noticed painless bumps around the head of my penis I started to search online and seen pearly penile papules which I thought was the cause because it said some men get it in early adulthood. So I didn’t think to much of it . Me n my girlfriend have sex alot and to this day nothing has ever been wrong wit her no pain in her vagina no bumps or nothing . Fast forward to 2021 in June I noticed I had mouth ulcers on the inside of my lips and jus thought it was a canker sore I treated the ulcers by rinsing my mouth with salt water and placing milk of magnesia on them I told my girlfriend about the ulcers n showed her and she thought they were canker sores also. within 2 weeks the ulcers were gone. Now about a week ago more ulcers have showed up in my mouth and I never got canker sores back to back as a kid . These ulcers are painless (the ones from june were painless too) I haven’t told my girlfriend about these ulcers yet because I’m really nervous n afraid of the outcome . It started as a tingle n burning feeling on my gums where the ulcer would then appear so I thought it was another canker sore but when the ulcer formed it was painless and about a week later 3 more ulcers formed in mouth following a cold . I’m really nervous and stressed right now & I don’t know what else to do except see a doctor get the ulcers swabbed and get tested for everything & of course tell my girlfriend . I know no one here can diagnose me but some feedback would help. pictures

Salutations Nobles Voyageurs,
Je tente le Nanowrimo cette année encore. Pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas, en gros c'est un marathon d'écriture sur le mois de Novembre : le but est d'écrire un roman d'au moins 50,000 mots en 30 jours.
Je suis basé en Occitanie, et j'aimerais beaucoup rentrer en relation avec d'autres écrivains, locaux ou non, pour qu'on se motive à réaliser ce défi !
J'ai aussi créé une chaîne Youtube pour partager mon processus créatif (le nom c'est "Fleur De Bouse").
Bonne soirée :)
