  • Diablo Devs Throw Ice Water on the Fires of Blizzcon Expectations - MMORPG.com

    I really feel like Blizzard has become a company that marches to the beat of their own drum.I don't think the fanbase has a voice anymore. Blizzard is on par with a movie studio, When a new movie is being made fans don't determine the plot or the actors or if there will be a sequel or a trilogy.

    Diablo fans want D4, We want a expansion to D3, We would love a Diablo MMO.

    What they are going to give us : A cartoon on netflix, A mobile Game and some sort of APP that link to our social media and then at the very end they will tease a battle royale Diablo survival game no one asked for, As someone told me awhile ago on these forums, devs dont just sit around with a thumb up their ass they have tons of data to base these decisions on..... yeah fortn$te data

  • Monitor dead(?)

    That thing is over 10 years old it doesn't owe you anything. It sucks having to spend money but Trusssttttttt me when i say whatever new monitor you go with you are going to be blown away by the difference. Upgrading from 10 year old tech is a big jump my man.

    Just some things to keep in my mind for your next purchase, What is your video card ? I see one person recommending a 4 k monitor keep in my mind you will need a very high end GPU to run that resolution. Your current res is 1680x1050 so if you like your current FPS id stick with your standard 1980 x 1080 resolution. If you want to go ultra wide 2k then your fps will take a small hit as well. 

      To me gaming in Ultra wide is very immersive, i don't think i could ever go back but its not for everyone. Whats your price range ?

  • MapleStory 2 Review - It's a Great Time to Jump In - MMORPG.com

    If you can get past the childish graphics there is a very good casual MMO here. I'm embarrassed to say I'v put a hour or 2 into this game the past few nights and really enjoyed it. The people that made this game "get it" when it comes to what MMO players want. What does it say about the current state of WOW if this is my go to game and BFA just came out....

    Why are they donating to breast cancer when the vast majority of their customers are men. Donate to prostate cancer... It's just as deadly and woefully underfunded in comparison .




    The reason attention is brought to breast cancer the way it is and for a entire month in October is because it is one of if not the most treatable and curable if detected early. The whole push for Breast cancer awareness is for women to get their annual mammograms.


    As far as prostate cancer goes as men we would have warning signs such as difficulty or constant urination or sensation to pee. At which point you would see your doctor ect ect, even then Prostate cancer is one of the least deadly cancers you can get as a matter of fact it is very common in men. With breast cancer its a very treatable cancer if caught early and its not something that can always be easily detected among women. Often Women will get a Mammogram despite not feeling any lumps or having any pain symptoms ect ect & discover cancer... Hence the push for breast cancer awareness and to get those check ups done. I hope I'm explaining myself clearly enough where you understand Breast cancer has a certain set of circumstances around discovery and treatment that push it to the forefront of awareness.

    I know why you said what you said especially on this site where some try to push a political agenda or a political ideology but this is not the fight you want to make. October Breast Cancer awareness month is a good thing, Some of us have wives or girlfriends (hopefully not both lol) & sisters But all of us have mothers. Women we love are apart of lives and this is a good cause and not a political one. I really hate preaching to people on any subject but if you do your research you will see this is a good thing, In the world we live in today its gotten harder to tell.

    I thought calling breast "ta ta's" was declared sexist and mysogynistic?

    Ta ta is a slang word for rich white people here in the Netherlands. Try reading it in that context ;)



    On the subject though, I don't have anything against breast cancer research or donations. But every year a lot of guys die of the ball cancer. Friend of mine got diagnosed 2 weeks ago, they told him it's the most common cancer for guys. Really weird that there is almost no event, information or checkups that get promoted. While the female side gets massive attention every year.

    On the matter of testicular cancer, we posted this just last Friday in fact:



    https://www.mmorpg.com/guild-wars-2/news/guild-wars-2-players-invited-to-charity-wvw-raid-on-october-20th-1000050106


     Send tips our way and we'll post them.


     That said, everyone needs to keep politics out of this thread. The discussion of the state of male / female relationships is not for this thread or site. There are literally thousands of other places to discuss political hot topics.


    Cool, didn't realize that story was about a testicular cancer charity.

    @thunderC good information, but testicular cancer is just as curable, as is cervical cancer, if caught early enough.  Still feel there's just a societal stigma in talking about the testicles or cervix (and associated vagina and penis) publicly as opposed to breasts.  Both sexes have breasts, too, which may contribute to the ease of public discussion.

    Again, not saying any of this is right or wrong or justified or not, etc..  It's merely an observation and possible reasoning that seems logical to me, even if the end result is less than desirable (less exposure given to those two types of cancers, relatively).  Any attention given to any devastating disease in a search for a cure is a good thing imo.



    The thing about testicular cancer is you can feel a lump on your balls (sorry not trying to be crude) you don't need a xray to tell you something is off, pain discomfort numbness, you'll know. Breasts, yes sometimes women discover lumps themselves by feeling but not always. Obviously a breast verse a Nut ( unless you are Andre the giant) is much more fleshy sometimes a growth could be so small and deep a woman doesn't even know its there. Bottom line is its a very treatable disease that can be easily treated if detected but requires the person to be proactive in discovering it hence the big push for breast cancer awareness month.
