2023.06.02 18:50 zipfit-ski When do you think winter starts in the northern hemisphere?
Each summer we debate the official start of winter. Is it the first snowfall? Is it when skiers start reaching out about ZipFits and our phone starts ringing with more frequency?
Here's our answer:
For some skiers, the stoke for skiing doesn’t end, skiing in 80º just requires some ingenuity and creativity. Travel to the Southern hemisphere? Seek out glaciers and 70 foot patches of snow to get your Turns All Year
status? When we were younger, we would shovel ice scrapings from the Zamboni at the local hockey arena in Lebanon, NH to build a big enough pile and runway to hit rails in our yard. This would hold my brother and I over until we could get back on the first ribbon of snow to train for racing. Whatever it took to keep progressing.
Some skiers might argue that the brief hiatus from skiing content on social media that begins around A Basin’s closing day comes to an end on July 20th for what has become known as 7/20 day — often celebrated by the sharing of stylin’ dub cork 7 videos that get all of us frothing for the return of snow. This inflection point is the start of winter, right? Others are deep in the throws of summer, cliff jumping, playing pickle ball, and balancing out the goggle tan.
So when is it? Well, to settle this debate we decided to choose a day — October 12th. Why October 12th? Well, it’s just getting cold enough across the US that we pull our rubbermaid of winter clothes out of summer storage. ZipFit’s annual inventory is just arriving from Italy. Ski shops are getting all of those bikes out of the way and new winter product is lining the walls. Athletes are hitting the dry land training to build their quad strength for the first turns of the season. Oh, and it is ZipFit founder, Sven Coomer’s birthday.
So with October 12th, we celebrate the kick off to winter. We’ve had enough time to toughen up our summer feet so that they’ll put up with the first days beck in ski boots. Our friends who aren’t as lovesick for winter find themselves dropping little comments like “I’m actually excited for winter. I saw the first frost this morning and it was so pretty.” Cool beans, we think it’s pretty too. But we’re actually thinking that it means it’s cold enough for the resorts to blow snow. That if it stays cold, the first resorts might open by late October and we want to have our ski stuff dialed just in case.

2023.06.02 17:04 Live-Degree1570 Did your nparents ever say you always quit but they put you in actives you didn’t even like
My parents always threw that saying around. They signed me up for soccer, swimming and swimming lessons and, gymnastics when I was very young. Maybe 8 years old or older. I’m not sure of the age precisely but my parents signed me up for this stuff and I HATED going. Especially the swimming. I’d rather swim at an amusment park on a hot day than swim a enclosed building for “sport”. They just picked it out for me and told me to do it to be active. I never really had a say.
Once I was older and had a mind of my own I started having hobbies like playing video games and musical instruments. This went on for almost a decade. I joined music clubs, music classes, music electives, music competitions where I compete against other ppl in a band, I won awards for it too. I was in it all. That was what I truly loved. Not stupid soccer and gymnastics.
They could’ve chosen a better sport like ice skating or baseball, I always wanted to do baseball. When I showed interest in boxing my mom judged me. Mainly because it was a “man sport.” Ugh😒 I liked those as well but I was too young to have an opinion of my own, but I’m older today and I still can’t have a mind of my own so….because of me quitting those two things mt parents always held this “you always quit at eveything” over my head for decades even though I found sometning im truly passionate about this hobby. It was just something THEY don’t approve of despite me becoming very successful with it.
So when I stick to something for almost a decade you’d think they’d drop the belittling but nope.

2023.06.02 16:51 Druha05 dudes about kyrou
Does anybody still not see that offense is created by defense in the NHL .... If you look at 2019 blues we had Pete bo edmundson colt 44 and probably wat people don't say enough about was hot carl. If I watch the blues exiting there d zone currently u see forwards as low as the dots skating the pucks either backwards or even fowards. 2019 blues d men were making one good pass behind net to other dman or keeping and then skating puck out themselves with all 3 fowards outside the zone... One good pass and we gone... The importance of this ability is wat is wrong with current team. They are not good at it... Pete was mistake #1, he was the best at it, hot Carl probably the second... Hot Carl never had stats but man evrytime he had that puck skating out the zone one good pass right on the money. Boumeester on the money, even edmundson. We fucked up, parakyo is not a number 1... He has talent in skating size but he's just not a leader and without that boumeester to lean on he's absolutely lost on d fence clear example was last night against islanders..like 4 of the 5 goals they scored were these dinky puck deflections around the net. On 2nd or 3rd parayko on 2-1s everytime will fall to the ice stretch out that body try to stop the pass.. everytime that's his one move... Well guess what players are just waiting him out and he either keeps on sliding away or even better takes out our goalie... Lucky we got him for cheap .. you know why we did because he new without Pete Bo and Carl he didn't have wat it takes plain and simple... Know one is that nice and he took the job security in term and now you can see why... He's an excellent compliment to a strong 2nf line leader ... I don't believe him to be a first line damn even.... He's never gonna put up offense he's never had a slapshot that can even hit the net... He will not be able to develope later like a perron shot because size guys don't work like that.... I leave it there for a start but it ain't the blues offense .. kyrou put up great numbers last year he's fast and we didn't pay him to play d so shut the f up about this two way player game it's not Jordan ok... Next article will be me sticking up for bing ding dong who made some incredible saves last night as well... And me ripping nick leddy Torrey krug... Binnington all we ever wanted from him was that couple big time saves to bail us out but our shut down d was the center piece that drove everything in 2019... Wake up all u idiots who can t see the difference watch next game watch the breakout it all starts there .

2023.06.02 14:55 groovybookworm Children’s book sisters set in 1800s
Fiction children’s book. Illustrated and very detailed color pictures throughout.
The book was set in the 1800s and focused on a family of sisters, I believe they were teenagers. The book was a collection of stories, each story focusing on an individual sister. I remember one sister had freckles and glasses, another sister was blonde. I’m not sure how many sisters total. The main story I remember was about a girl going ice-skating, and she falls through the ice only to be rescued by a stray dog which pulls her out. The end of the story the family is so grateful that they take the dog in. There was another story about a girl and a beautiful ballgown falling in love with a well to do fellow.
I remember the book was hard back. I read it in the 2000s when I was around 7 years old. It was printed in English and bought in America. It was age-appropriate. I remember reading it at my grandmothers house, which means it could’ve been a hand me down from previous generations, but the book was in relatively good condition and I remember the pages being glossy so it could have been bought new I’m not sure.
Looking back, it now it reminds me a lot of Little Women but I’m pretty sure that wasn’t what it was. I would love to find it again so any help is greatly appreciated!

2023.06.02 13:52 JarJae17 Let's just stop, ok?
I (18f) have a wonderful boyfriend (20m) and ever since we started dating people assume the worst of me.
I was never an outgoing person. We live in a small, secluded village and I enjoyed reading books more than to turn up to any meetings with friends when I was younger. Sure, as a kid I did stupid things. Like diving my dad's car up a staircase or thinking I was a ice skating queen when I hopped onto our frozen lake, which was, in fact, not as sturdy as little me thought. A little over three years ago I found new friends and I started to hang out with them a lot more. They introduced me to partying, clubs, etc. But I barely drank anything due to me taking up the role of the "therapist friend", who just listens to all these drunkards ranting about anything. And I didn't mind. As far as I am concerned, I never did anything outmost cruel or absurd which could have lead to my family assuming the worst of me nowadays.
Another chunk of information should be that I cannot get on my period, which I am extremely glad of. My mother forced me to go to doctors and I understand she worried. But as they said my body didn't produce the hormones and everything was fine, she didn't stop. She took me to another doctor, who subscribed me pills that could wake my uterus out of its eternal slumber. But who would choose this pain? Not me. These pills lay on my desk untouched even now.
So yes. I never minded to not put myself through crucial pain in order to hold the chance of having kids. Why? Hoho, because I never wanted one.
As soon as I got together with my boyfriend, they all have been saying I am pregnant. Am I? No. First of all, I have several reasons to just know I am not. Second of all, it's totally rude to say "Are you pregnant? You look like it." I am not thin, neither obesely built. My body is- well, my body. I got a little stomach, thicker thighs but if I look at my family they seem to run in the genes honestly. And I do keep my weight in check. For several months I haven't gained one nor lost a pound. And that's fine.
I let it slip for three months because, you know, they come from times where girls getting pregnant was almost a task to some extend. And I can understand their worries seeing how many teenagers in my age (or even below) announce their pregnancy already. But I set them down and just told them to stop.
I am a logical thinking person. First of all, setting up a child in this world is financially expensive as well as extremely dangerous. It could get kidnapped, we could ran bankrupt because of it and my time management doesn't allow a kid to mingle with it. I am not saying I hate children. I respect every parent out there because physically I could not. And even if, the birth and pregnancy itself is harmful and there is a minor chance of miscarrying as the history of my family shows. Then all would have been for nothing and I'd end up forever sad. Yeah, no thanks.
Another thing I valued is my trauma. I didn't grow up in a very loving family. Let's just say, they all had their problems when I was born and they couldn't take care of me the way they should have. I am not angry with them as, now that I am older, I can understand them. However, due to this I simply know I don't have the emotional span of raising a child. I don't want to end up traumatizing another generation. And yes, I am getting therapy. But I think this anger in me? It never burns down and I am far too easily irritated.
That said, I know I cannot bench the responsibilities that come along with a child. I'd rather spent my energy and time on something else. So, yes, I've chosen a childfree life due to multiple reasons both economical and personal.
But this didn't seem to convince my family all too much. My boyfriend, too, doesn't want kids. He had to raise his brothers and he, too, didn't have the childhood he deserved. And he can't see himself becoming a father as well. So, the two of us came to the conclusion we do not want children and if this thought ever changes, we might adopt.
But of course, adoption is not valued in this family. "It won't be like having your own!" they said. "You are wasting the experience," they argued when I brought it up. Hello? But they are the same ones that go, "Having a child is the best thing in the world."
Cool. Cool. Maybe for you but not for me nor my partner.
And yesterday my mother sat beside me and said, "Why don't you take the pills? Or go to another doctor?" I only responded with my usual reasoning. "I don't want to go through unnecessary pain." Which she only clicked her tongue at and said, in the most disgusted and distant voice, "Then live with never having a baby!" Yeah, that's my plan?
Why do people have the audacity to decide what others should feel? Or do? As long as it doesn't harm anyone, it is okay. Sure, you can tell someone to not use violence because it'd harm the other being. But I don't see how me not having a child is causing such pain to anyone.
And I think they all are running mad because whenever they see me, they make up things to see as pregnancy symptoms. "Your belly! It's swollen!" Yes, happens if I have just eaten two plates and a salat? My stomach always bloats after a meal?
I just want them to stop. It's my decision and not worth fighting over. And it's not just a phase either. I've made my decision and that's the end of it. But I think this is not going to be the last I've heard of this... Does anyone's family does the same?? Is this normal?

2023.06.02 11:18 OGMaco710 LGG Jupiter is NOT slow.
After only a couple of days with this pad, Its going right back in the box. For "the slowest mousepad on the market" this thing is sure as hell faster than a lot of the mousepads I've tried. (Gamesense Radar, G-SR-SE Rouge, Gigantus V2, even the Saturn has more dynamic friction/stopping power).
The only time this pad is slow at all is with micro adjustments (which I don't want, though, I'm willing to accept it if the pad has high dynamic friction/stopping power), but even micro adjustments are only about as slow as the G-SR-SE Rouge. Any movements faster than a few cm a second, and the pad just sort of "lets loose". There's very little dynamic friction with larger movements, and flicks have no stopping power at all for anyone on a low sens unless you're putting your bodyweight on the mouse
If you're looking for dynamic friction/stopping power on a low sensitivity, this pad is not the one. I tried it with Tiger Ice, which I expected to be fast, but even with stock skates on multiple mice this pad just very simply is not the slowest mousepad at all. There were also some bad waves, and a couple of creases I cant get rid of, as well as some bent areas in the stitching, so I cant even recommend it for the quality. :( At this point, I'm giving up my search. If the pad for me exists, I'm not gonna find it through the speed freaks on reddit, nor the people blindly reciting random reviewers with 0 personal experience. I dont have the money to waste because people dont know wtf they're talking about.
I love you guys at LGG, but this pad has been an awful experience.

2023.06.01 22:35 Wild_girl_travels Positive experience with laparoscopic myomectomy
I wanted to share my story in the hopes this will give at least some of you a bit more comfort going into your surgery. I found there were lots of negative post surgery experiences here and in the wider realms of the internet, so I thought I should probably share a positive one too! I am now Day 10 post-op.
Surgery type: Laparoscopic myomectomy
Insurance: Private. Pre-diagnosis, ladies, not to sound like I am advertising private insurance, but even if you have a tiny inkling something might be wrong (but haven't been to the docs yet and no diagnosis), get private insurance - it gives you a bit of security that even if nothing is wrong you could have had the opportunity to get medical attention fastebetter quality.
Fitness level: High/athletic - I do lots of gym-ing, running, surfing, skating, cycling. I was a bit overweight in my early 20ties (not massively so, maybe like 2kgs over my BMI), so after my ovarian cyst surgery I was paranoid to get PCOS so I really changed my lifestyle around and got into sports, which now has turned into a lifestyle I can't really live without!
Living situation: Live on my own in a rural town, but close friends live nearby.
Previous surgery: Ovarian cyst surgery where they also had to remove my ovary (very large cyst) circa 10 years ago. Didn't have any symptoms back then even, just thought I had IBS (which I think a lot of us do) - turns out there was a cyst the size of a small basketball growing on my ovary, and they had to remove both...which sucks of course, but when your in your early 20ties you don't really think about how this may affect your future ability to have kids. Mine was an emergency surgery performed after I went to ER with crazy gas pain in tummy, in a foreign country, so overall this whole experience was really traumatic emotionally and I am still dealing with the aftermath of this.
Symptoms before surgery: No real symptoms - normal periods, bit of bloating (assumed IBS), bit of hormonal acne here and there. Been on birth control pill since my ovarian cyst surgery, so keeping hormones in check through that.
Diagnosis: I pulled what I thought was a hernia at the gym, went to GP, got a ultrasound which funnily enough found nothing, so they attributed it to a one off random told me to ease off exercise for a couple of weeks and start again. However, I instinctively knew something was wrong with my body, so TRUST YOUR GUT LADIES! Because I had a previous cyst and my ovary removed circa 10 years ago I got into real panic mode about my fertility, so I requested a referral to a OBGYN in case there was an issue with my other ovary. Note ladies, private insurance if you live in a country where healthcare is horrible is so important. I saw the OBGYN within a week, if that wasn't the case I would have needed to wait about 6-12 months to see one on the public system. OBGYN sent me for another ultrasound (this time transvaginal) and they originally didn't see any problem, but by the end of the app, they weren't quite sure what they had seen (useful, I know), so OBGYN sent me for an MRI. MRI found 1 med-large fibroid on uterus. I then had a long chat with OBGYN as to the best treatment type, and because of my age and the desire to have children she recommended removal through laparoscopic surgery.
Fibroid numbetype: 1 med-large subserosal fibroid 7cm, and the surgeon found two others ( 1 x 4cm and 1 x 1cm) during my surgery (did not see them on the MRI, I know crazy!). OBGYN also now suspects I have adenomyosis, which is something I will have to deal with once I have recovered from surgery. I know, fun!
Day of surgery: Had to only wait a month between my app with OBGYN and surgery (again, thanks insurance). Hospital was boujie as (had never been in private hopsital) and everything from the admission to surgery just felt like a well oiled machine which was really good to keep the stress levels down. I had my friend there with me and we chatted all the way until I got rolled away for surgery. Surgery lasted about 2 hrs.
Waking up post-surgery: I woke up to see 2 nurses monitoring my vitals, and they rolled me to my room where my friend was waiting. I was pretty out of it and asked some silly question to my friend, which I am sure she loved sharing with our friend group. I had an afternoon surgery so I was in my room by dinnertime, but believe you me I did not want to eat anything. I drank lots of water overnight, and they kept coming in to check my vitals and give me pain and anti-nausea meds + laxatives and some other stuff that helps with heartburn etc.
Day 1 post op: In hospital, had a bit to eat for brekkie (eggs - high protein), they took my catheter out from my lady parts, so I can pee by myself. Didn't hurt at all taking it out (also they put the catheter in while you're under so you feel nothing). Went for my first pee, went for a little ponder round hospital (about 5mins in the hallways), and spent the rest of day watching series, reading etc. Pain was totally fine, and I was just on paracetamols etc., didn't need anything stronger. Had pretty bad nausea, but they kept me topped up for that. Lots of sleeping, but generally because of the pain meds I didn't feel any pain at all! Getting in and out of bed was a bit hard, but I have really strong arms from surfing so i was able to push myself up quite easily. Every hour or so, I tried to get up and do a couple of laps (5-10min) in the hallway. Because I was doing fine and was mobile, I could do this by myself, but there were lots of people who did the same thing but needed to be accompanied by a nurse. Drink lots of water gals, this will help with triggering your need to pee independently and getting your bowels moving, and also helps flush your body.
Important things to make your stay at hospital more comfy: Loose low rise sweatpants - I actually bought a pair a size too big so it was more comfy. Oversized t-shirts and jumpers, something you can easily put over the catheter in your arm. I-pad (life saver for me, I could catch up on netflix), magazines or crosswords. I had a book, but my brain was deffos not ready to engage while I was still in hospital. Electrolyte drinks - these were incredible and really helped to get my bowels moving too! Heat wrap - they had some in the hospital, and they're essential pain relief for anesthetic leaving your body pain (my right shoulder was in pain) - they kept heating it up round the clock which was so GOOD.
Day 2: Discharge day/first day at home - they would not discharge me until I had a bowel movement, so I was drinking water like crazy to help trigger some gut movement. Otherwise you will have to shove pills up your bum to get the party started. Luckily for me all of my drinking, and eating regular, yet small meals during Day 1 did the trick! My friend came to pick me up and we had a 2 hrs drive to get home, and this was not something I had thought about before. This was probably the worst part of my entire experience. I was so motion sick the entire way home, that the car had to be made into a freezer (AC pumping) and I had to do deep breathing all the way home not to throw up (which I did when I got home, but thankfully not in caon roadside). Once I got home, I pretty much just dropped into my bed and slept for about 5 hrs. I threw up once, while clutching a pillow to my abdomen to make it hurt less. Did some small walks around the house, friends dropped off some food, so I didn't have to cook or anything. People dropped in really regularly to check on me. My friends bought me heat packs for shoulder pain (still from anesthetic and gas leaving your body), and it was the best.
Day 3: Started day off with small walk outside to the post box and back, felt exhausted afterwards, but with little pain. I clutched a soft pillow to my abdomen while doing so (just felt more comfortable this way). I was managing with paracetamol every 6 hours, irrespective of whether I felt in pain or not. This is what docs advised on discharge. I had no pain really, discomfort in my tummy area sure, mainly just felt odd with the stiches. What I found hardest was breathing while walking (I know, weird right), I felt really out of breath every time I tried to go for a longer walk (200m plus). I just listened to my body and stopped when this happened, while also attempting to increase the length I walked bit by bit to train my lungs. Bowel movement back to normal pretty much, some light bleeding (doc said this is normal), but stomach was huge (as in 6 month pregnant huge). I called my doc as I was concerned about why it's so large, she said it's normal and swelling should subside in a couple of weeks (yikes!). I was drinking lots of water (2-3L a day), and eating a primarily veggie & high protein diet. I cut dairy, red meat an processed foods out during my recovery as I had read this helps. Ate a lot of kiwi fruit to help my bowels. Overall, by day 3 I did some light house work and did about 2 hrs of work (e-mails etc.)
Day 4: Walked about 1km in the morning, felt tired after so took a nap. Pain almost completely gone, bowels normal, no more spotting/bleeding. Feeling almost normal (ish). Did some housework, couple hours of work. Another 1km walk later in the arvo. Diet still restricted to protein, fibre, no dairy, no red meat and not processed foods.
Day 5: Dropped my meds, as I did not feel pain at all, my stomach felt fine, and tummy swelling had gone down. Felt okay all day, bit bloated, but walking really helped. Did about 2km walk in mooning and 2km walk in arvo, with small stints of walking around the house all day. Still more tired than normal, so lots of resting & naps.
Days 6-10: Nearly back to normal (well normal-ish) - no pain, everything regular, have been off painkillers for 5 days. Introduced dairy back into diet, felt fine. Had an ice cream :) Increased walk length to 3-5kms per walk (2 x daily) - feeling puffed still, lungs still feeling exhausted during walking but getting better every day. Have been doing about 5-6 hrs of work each day, while still taking lots of mini break for naps and resting.
Day 10: (today) - OBGYN has cleared me for short drives with car (initially she said 3 weeks no driving), as I have been off pain meds for over 5 days and feeling fit and alert. I feel almost normal to be honest, the area where the stiches are feels a bit tender, and still a bit swollen, but swelling has gone down heaps. Hoping to keep upping my walk distances and that my lungs will catch up slowly.
Something I really struggled with: Emotionally, I was a bit of a wreck after surgery. The additional diagnosis of adenomyosis really left me questioning whether I will be able to have children in the future, so I had a good cry with my friends about it (whom immediately jumped in to be surrogates). I'm trying to not think about it too much during recovery, but it's something that is heavily weighing on my mind as one of the main 'side effects' is infertility. I am hopefully going to see a fertility specialist after I have recovered to talk about my options. Obvs doesn't help that I am single, but I am so ready to be a mom (emotionally and financially), so am I ready to explore what else is out there for me to hopefully start on a journey that will lead me towards a wee addition to my solo independent lady family.
Also, I struggled with just being and home and not doing ANYTHING. I am normally really active and exercise helps me to relieve stress and sleep better, so not being able to do that has been driving me up the wall. I am very lucky to be self employed so I have no pressure from anyone else to get back to work, but I feel guilty for doing little work for over 10 days. I'm a workaholic, so it's really hard for me to 'just rest.' I will hopefully go back to working full time from next week, but I will really need to check myself to not be 'overdoing' it and set myself back in recovery.
Key takeaways: If you feel up for it, get up and start doing small walks as soon as you can after surgery - this well help get your bowels moving and heal faster. Drink lots of water! Eat a diet that's high in protein & fibre (pre and post op for sure), cut out dairy, red meat and processed food if you can. I am a young fit adult and this really helped with recovery as my body is trained to be under stress and has a high pain threshold, by being fit my recovery is up to 3-5 faster than an average person. Even if you're not fit now, there's a lot of studies (goggle them, I kid you not) suggesting that physical training before surgery, like gym exercises or running boosts the odds of a good outcome, so if you've got your surgery scheduled for a couple of months time see if you can incorporate some exercise in your daily routine.
Also you might be okay psychically, but it's okay if you feel like a mess emotionally. A good network of close females was so important for me. I cried, I laughed and I felt supported by them in allowing me to talk through my emotional trauma, especially relating to the potential fertility issues in the future. Anything to do with woman's health for me has been so hard to talk about, as it feels so personal, and you feel less of a 'normal female' if you have fertility issues. Most of my life I have been trying to avoid even thinking about it, so it felt so nice to just let it all out! I really hope you all have those people in your life you can open up to and be vulnerable around!
Having the support of close friends/family will be key while you're in hospital and for the first week or so - I could have never done this without my close friend group, they were with me at the hospital and took turns bringing food and drink and attending to most of my whims while I was at home, so make sure you have some support with you during this time!
Anyways, I hope my essay helped someone - I think I can put my good experience down to 3 simple factors: excellent pre-existing fitness, private health insurance and having a good movement regime/diet structure post-surgery.

2023.06.01 21:31 Clay_Bricks Every retiring LEGO set (June 2023 update)
Another month, another retirement update! A lot of sets changed dates this month, and even more new sets got added! Which reminds me, I'm considering making a /legoleak
Discord server in order to expand more on leaks, answer questions, and provide daily retirement updates. If there's interest in that, I'll work on having it done before the next list!
As always, we owe a massive thanks to ZombieYeti
from the BrickHound Discord
for providing this valuable data. If you're looking for real-time in-stock/deal alerts for Lego.com and other sites, make sure to check out his server: https://discord.gg/BwezK2t5qf
This information is scraped directly from Lego's website, and all dates are subject to change. ZombieYeti
is currently developing a website to host this data and offer real-time updates. In the meantime, here is a list of every set and their corresponding retirement date as per LEGO's system! FULL LIST ON GOOGLE SHEETS HERE <--
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Due to Reddit's character limits, we can't include everything here, but the full spreadsheet contains every set. CHANGES IN JUNE:

2023.06.01 20:42 flepine44 My 2023 NHL Draft-Entry Goalie Prospects Ranking
Hello y'all !
Since a lot of us are interested in goalie prospects for the future and not much information about them are shared by the scouts and the medias, I decided to personally scout them over the last 2 months. I obviously am not a professional and do this as an amateur to give my opinion and more informations to the community about the 2023 Draft-eligible goalies.
Methodology : I've scouted 18 goalies, watched between 2 and 8 games (exception of Thomas Milic where I watched 12 games) depending on avaliability of tapes and level of interest I had in each of them. I've come out of it with a top-5 of my favorites and 1 HM. All stats and specific datas as Height, Weight etc. are taken from Elite Prospects
. PS : Stats obviously played a factor in the rankings, but you have to put some of them in perspective since stats depends a lot on the league they play, the level of their team in general, their opponents and other circumstances. I prefered to rely on my eye-test, the abilities of the goalies and their general strengths/weaknesses.
HM : Noa Vali
, 6''0, 154lbs, Left catching - TPS U20, U20 SM-sarja, Finland.
I absolutely loved watching Vali. In the U20, he posted a 0.912 in 29 GP before being an absolute dog in the playoffs posting a 0.930 facing high-volume shooting and a lot of dangerous situations. He's ranked 4th amongst EU Goalies according to NHL Central Scouting but isn't really projected to be drafted by many, or could be taken as a late-round flyer. Tried to put that away of my mind watching him and I think he is absolutely worth of a draft-pick. Risk is high but reward could also be phenomenal. Out of the 18 goalies I've watched, he's the one who made me anxious the most. Dude's an absolute puppy, skating everywhere to get the puck, causing turnovers but also great transitions and puck movement for his team. It's weird to say but it almost looked like Vali was getting bored and wanted to challenge himself skating almost to the face-off dots sometimes lol. But don't get me wrong, it doesn't represent the whole character, Noa Vali has excellent speed, agility and his technique is top-notch. When he's in his net, he's in complete control and doesn't make many mistakes. I'd add that outside of those yolo moments, he actually has a great IQ for the game and knows when to defy shooters, when to stay in his crease etc. His weaknesses are obviously his size ; at 154lbs, you don't take a lot of space in that net. Even if it's a bit compensated by his good lateral movements, it's still not enough. Goes with that consistency issues. Like I said, he has questionnable moments and also seemed to get bored (maybe because of the caliber he played against). It's part of his game and it's fun sometimes, but he need to chill on brain farts like this to unlock another gear in his game. I am also a bit concerned about injuries for him. He is projected to play for TPS in the top Finnish-league next year.
5th : Carson Bjarnason
, 6''3, 181lbs, Left catching - Brandon Wheat Kings, WHL, Canada.
I'll start by saying that Bjarnason has mediocre stats. 0.900 in 47 GP, which was 16th in the WHL for goalies with 20+GP. Although, Brandon was a pretty bad team and I see Bjarnason as a project. He's surprisingly listed 1st amongst NA Goalies according to NHL Central Scouting. Other rankings generally projects him to go between pick 40 and 60. He doesn't have any major holes in his game from what I saw. Dude got two solid arms, both glove and blocker sides are solids, he seems to have a great puck-tracking on shots in general and anticipate pretty well deviations. He showed a solid progression during the year and his game definitly looked better and better the further it was getting in the season. Only concern to me was his adaptability. When the pace of the play was switching (ex : Lateral puck-offense to a forward rushing the net), I thought he was slow to change position and get ready for whatever was coming at him. He was also giving up too easily on plays for my taste (can be symptomatic of playing behind a poor defense). Could use a little bit more weight too, but I'm not concerned about a 181lbs 17 y/o. Probably a goalie that will need his full junior years and few seasons in the AHL before making the jump, he's still very raw. He normally should continue to be the starter for Brandon next season.
4th : Adam Gajan
, *Overager x1, 6''3, 176lbs, Left catching - Chippewa Steel, NAHL, US.
Gajan might be a familiar name to a lot of you. He was the Slovak goalie at the last WJC and was brilliant. He was named (rightfully so) goalie of the tournament. First thing to note is that Gajan went undrafted last year and enters this draft as an overager. Sometimes goalies take more time to develop and him making the transition from Slovakia to North America definitly impacted his visibility and how high scouts are looking at him. He's currently projected to likely go somewhere in the 3rd round, which is a big jump for an overager goalie. He posted a 0.917 in 34 GP in the NAHL. I like Gajan principally for his positionning. He's always at the right place at the right time, and god he is athletic. He could become a real hightlights-machine. His size is good and the amazing moving abilities compensate for the light lack of frame. The main negative is the league he's playing in. When coming from Slovakia, he went to the NAHL and the opposition is definitly not good enough to give us a great idea of how Gajan could develop, even if we clearly see his impressive skillset. Next year he's commited to the University of Minnesota-Duluth in the NCAA, it should give us better indications. He also tends to give too many rebounds, especially on blocker-side shots. I like him a lot but it's hard to throw a 3rd, potentially 2nd round pick for an overager who will have to prove what he can do against good opposition in his 20 y/o season.
3rd : Michael Hrabal
, 6''6, 209lbs, Left catching - Omaha Lancers, USHL, US.
Michael Hrabal is a fascinating case for me. Largely due to his size, he's seen by many scouts as the best goalie of this draft class. Even if I agree that he has solid potential and is pretty safe to make the NHL, I don't think he has the most upside in this class and I still think people tend to overrate some players a bit when they are big fellas. Don't get me wrong, Hrabal is a great goalie. 0.908 with one of the worst USHL team is almost miraculous. He has size but is still agile and pretty quick, which is a rare combination. He was solid in Czechia before, his NA transition was smooth, he stood out on international competitions, everything is screaming NHL with Hrabal. He's commited to UMass for next year and I think he's gonna be fantastic there. His poise and rebound controlling are excellent as well. I am just personally scared to use a pick that could be as high as late first-round to get a goalie like Hrabal whose ceiling might be limited. His consistency is not always there and he sometimes has a hard time to track shots from the point (which is curious when you're 6''6). He's also very comfortable in his crease and doesn't go out much to defy shooters, which can turn into him letting pretty soft goals in. I like Hrabal but I have a certain hesitation to grab him too high, where he will probably get taken. I think there will still be 2 better options there or even later.
2nd : Jacob Fowler
, 6''2, 201lbs, Left catching - Youngstown Phantoms, USHL, US.
Now we're entering the zone where I'd be down to use one of our 30s pick to draft the goalie. Jacob Fowler is simply amazing. I'll start with the weaknesses because the list is pretty short to me ; Blocker side needs improvement, some of his lateral movements are not super fluid (could definitly use a skating coach) and per default he gets beaten 5-hole a bit too often. That's it. The rest in simply great. He's capable of sick reaches with his glove, his puck tracking is amazing, very efficient on deflections or long-distance shots, has great size and take a lot of space in his net. rebound-control is solid and from the informations I read/heard, he's an absolute workhorse on and off the ice. I mean, his 49 GP (0.921) is a good indication already, but his coaches seem to praise a lot is work-ethic. He's a real athlete, in amazing physical condition and has a winning mentality. What stands out the most with him IMO tho is his puck handling abilities. I don't really see other top-end goalies in this class that can move the puck like him. He's not afraid to go out of his net (but usually makes it at the right time and doesn't overcommit). Really helps his team to have better transitions and reduces the risk of his defenders getting outworked in the end of the zone for puck-retrieval. Fowler is commited to play for Boston College in the NCAA next season.
1st : Trey Augustine
, 6''1, 179lbs, Left catching - USNTDP, US.
For me, Augustine is the best goalie in this draft. I had a hard-time to chose between him and Fowler, but he ended up on top. He was pretty much conscensus to be the 1st goalie to go in the draft before a lot of people turned their head to Hrabal, but I don't see how he's not the most promising there. Maybe a lower floor than some others, but definitly the highest-ceiling, and that's one of the most important thing I'm looking at. He's been successful everywhere he played (0.926 in the NTDP, 0.928 in the USHL, 0.934 at the WJC) and I'm sure he'll also be great with Michigan State (NCAA) next season. Scouts mostly having him going in the 40-50s picks, but honestly don't get suprised if he's taken late 1st round. His positionning is on-point, his reflexes and movements are fluid and quick, his vision is amazing (and when I'm saying vision, it's not only that he sees puck, he anticipates plays and make solid passes, often entirely a 3rd dman. He has a great glove and can make spectacular saves on a constant basis. Most importantly, his Hockey IQ is where you want it to be. Smart decisions, few mistakes, adapts to every situations, knows where his net is at any time etc. Few things I'd see that would need an improvement : Size (again, 179lbs at 18 is not worrying to me and 6''1 is decent and will probably still grow a bit), he gives up too many rebounds in dangerous areas that leads to scoring opportunities for the other team and his 5-hole is getting scored too much on at my taste. Nothing I consider major issues and I definitly think he's futur starter material.
Other scouted goalies : Noah Erliden
, Yegor Zavragin
, Scott Ratzlaff
, Thomas Milic
, Jackson Parsons
, Jackson Unger
, Michael Chambre
, Tomas Suchanek
, Adam Dybal
(very fun goalie), Alexander Hellnemo
, Calvin Vachon
, Samuel Urban
Here it is ! Hope it gives some of you some nice infos/opinions and I'm excited to see where those goalies will land ! Go Habs Go !

2023.06.01 19:57 Final_Replacement_41 People who knew someone who died in a freak accident, what happened?
A cousin of mine was electrocuted by a Dr. Pepper machine. His 2 children received $60,000 that their mom lost on bingo.
A mom went ice skating. Little slip, fell, all everyone saw was her bump her head lightly.
Family finished skating. On the ride home, she started speaking gibberish. Dad dropped kids at the grandparents, took mom to the er.
Brain swelling, coma, dead a week later.
My insurance guy was pulling a limb out of a large tree with a chain and a rope. He was behind the pickup, his wife was driving the truck. Rope snapped from the strain and chain snapped back and hit him in the head, killing him instantly. He was in his 50s. Nice guy, too.
Ironic thing, is this is exactly the sort of scenario he would describe as to why you need life insurance.
There was a person at the beach who got impaled by a flying beach umbrella. Horrible situation. Her husband was right beside her and she died within seconds.
A friend of a friend showed up at his girlfriend's apartment with a head wound. He didn't know how it happened. He also didn't know how he drove over there.
She took him to the ER where he ended up passing away.
He had his keys, wallet and phone on him.
The only thing we could think of is he might have tripped, fell and hit his head in the wrong spot.
My SIL’s aunt died of hypothermia. She went for a walk out in the hills in the winter. She knew the trail very well but got disoriented by a light snow fall and got lost. She got cold and tired, laid down by a rock and died of hypothermia. She was 100 yards from her car.

2023.06.01 16:20 WwwWario The true timeline placement, and why TOTK's memories happen before everything we know [THEORY] [SPOILERS]
This is a sort of Part 2 of my grand theory of "Ancient Zonai", and you can read Part 1 here: https://www.reddit.com/tearsofthekingdom/comments/13rdwog/the_zonai_have_been_in_the_story_this_whole_time/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3
Strap in, because this is a long one! Spoilers for Tears of the Kingdom, Breath of the Wild, and Skyward Sword.
I'm a believer that the lore in Zelda isn't just slapped on. They've said at least since 2001 that they have documents written about how each game connect, and when they put so much work into describing symbols and potential backstories for small things in THREE different books, I think it's safe to say that the connected lore is important to Nintendo.
But, before I go on with my theory, it's important to establish something I've just recently started to think about: The Legend of Zelda are LEGENDS in the games.
I believe each game shows what really happened in those times, but because each game is so far apart, the events of other games are merely myths and legends within the world of Zelda, as many games explain many times. Aka, what happens in the games is true, but the stories told within the games are legends.
How the world was created, who the godesses were, what happened i previous eras, etc. that are explained in-game are how the residents of the world at that time interprates history, because it's all (again) legends and myths.
One of the major head twisters in TOTK is "Where is anything taking place?!". Is TOTK's memories between SS and OOT? Or in the distant future, before BOTW? Where is the Great Calamity 10 000 years before BOTW taking place? Does it happen before all other games, and that 10 000 year gap is our timeline of games? Etc.
BOTW is confirmed to be far, far into the future compared to all other games, which means the same for TOTK. Wether the timelines have merged, or if only 1 is canon and the others are legends within this world, or if all are canon and this is still in one of the timelines, is unknown. But where is TOTK's memories taking place?
I believe they happen in the distant past, even before Skyward Sword.
There are several things that goes against this, I know; Hyrule was established after SS, not before it. Demise was the origin of Ganondorf, so it can't take place before SS. They talk about the Master Sword, but that wasn't forged until SS.
Well, let's begin (and keep in mind, this is purely FUN for me to do! I love lore that is very hidden and subtile like in the Zelda universe. Weather it's correct or not, I'm still having a blast, so don't shoot me for getting certain things wrong or for disagreeing with me haha).
THE SECRET HISTORY BEFORE SKYWARD SWORD
The world was created by Din, Farore and Nayru, and the godess Hylia is said to be the protecter of the Triforce. I believe she wasn't a spiritual pure godess so to speak, but a human with goddess powers, aka like Zelda, and her family protected the Triforce for generations as the Triforce is hidden in the Sacred Realm. Through legend and myth, she was believed to be a goddess as she was the first one to show magical powers.
The Zonai was one of the very first races to exist alongside humans, and they were living in islands in the sky. They were blessed with technological knowledge to help and serve the gods. They decended upon the land, and people thought they were gods at first due to their appearance, magic, and highly advanced technology.
The world flurished, and the Zonai created the ancient robots seen in Skyward Sword, and later the Temple of Time in Lanayru seen in both TOTK and Skyward Sword. Why and how, you ask? In SS, we learn the robots were active thousands of years prior to the game, meaning an advanced civilization lived thousands of years before SS. The robots' body parts are connected with energy just like Zonai constructs. The robots' ship, the Sand Ship, has the Zonai swirl symbol
on it, which even is confirmed in one of the 3 Zelda lore books to be the clear symbol for the Zonai. https://preview.redd.it/yk85sjfbzd3b1.png?width=728&format=png&auto=webp&s=45d3a957ea367fbf8130370c6bfbf1ab5b380200
Aka, this Sand Ship is a Zonai ship, and those ancient robots are Zonai robots. There is no question. Why else would they choose to use this symbol in these places? Now, what were the robots mining in the Lanayru Mining Facility? Probably Zonite. As we see when using Timeshift Stones, Lanayru was once filled with green fields of grass in the ancient past.
And what's right next to the Mining Facility? The broken Temple of Time. And what is almost directly blow TOTK's Temple of Time? The Abandonded Central Mine
. And what do we see in TOTK's memories? A fully in-tact Temple of Time, in green fields, built with very similar white-stone material to the one from Skwyard Sword: https://preview.redd.it/xbic4jxozd3b1.png?width=1343&format=png&auto=webp&s=66a274e358ad8c9a4c0935d9ceb589a77022061d https://preview.redd.it/jhtoqtx20e3b1.png?width=1427&format=png&auto=webp&s=85ea6251b78232dbe865cf8fca35b6abdfce5271
In other words: Both in Skwyard Sword and TOTK, we see the first Temple of Time, and both have mines next to them. It's the same temple. The ONLY thing I cannot figure out, is that the TOTK temple is said to have been sent to the sky as a hero was destined to awaken there. So if the SS and TOTK temples are the same, but the SS temple has decayed, when did it rise back into the sky as a fully constructed temple again? Here I need your help.
Now, Rauru, the sage of light from OOT, is written to have built "the second Temple of Time", meaning this one in SS is the first one. King Rauru built the first Temple of Time, and light sage Rauru was named after him and built the second temple thousands of years later. It all makes sense.
Rauru has Secret Stones, perhahs he made them himself or they were gifts from the Gods.
Years passed after the temple and robots' creation, and the Zonai tribe became less and less (not sure how, but probably due to marrying and breeding with humans). The Sheikah tribe who protects the Royal Family is taught the technology from the Zonai. Rauru married Sonia (a decendant of Hylia who thus posessed magical powers), and the two of them finally united all the lands and created Hyrule. So to sum up so far: The world was made. The advanced Zonai race decended from the skies, taught the Sheikah their tech, built robots to mine Zonite, built the Temple of Time, and eventually Raru and Sonia founded Hyrule and became its first king and queen.
Ganondorf was then born and did not want to bow down and be united with Hyrule. But a demon lived inside him. He killed Sonia, took a Secret Stone, and his demon inside came out, and Ganondorf became known as the Demon King. Yes, this happens before
Demise. Stick with me. A war breaks loose known as the Imprisoning War, and Rauru gathers sages and, through sacrificing himself, Rauru seals Ganondorf deep underground, warning Ganondorf (or the Demon within him) that a hero with the blade to repel evil will one day come for him. How can this be, when the Master Sword wasn't forged yet?
Because Rauru's decendants made the Goddess Sword.
We know Rauru and Sonia had a child, as Sonia is a blood relative to Zelda. This means this child is part Zonai, part hylian and has the blood of the original "Goddess". Because the Royal Family now has blood of Zonai as well as the Godess, it explains why Zeldas in the future has both the power of light and time. Rauru and Sonia's child may very well be named Hylia, renamed after that first Goddess. I believe Rauru knew, and was even responsible for, the creation of the Goddess Sword. Look at its design - its neon-green color is perfectly Zonai in nature:
The legends in the games says the "Godess Hylia made the sword", but that's the legend. The fact is that one of the first Hylia's long decendants made the sword, or Rauru himself did - or, Hylia the decendant made it, which fits. This is also why the ancient robots protect a Sacred Flame on the Sand Ship, because the Zonai constructed them too. This explains how Rauru knew a hero with this very sword would one day defeat Demise/Ganon's demon, because he knew of the sword's creation.
Thousands of year pass, and the Zonai are almost no more. Only Rauru and Sonia's long, long decendant named again Hylia of the royal family, as well as sages and the Sheikah who has kept the Zonai technology and knowledge, are alive. Perhaps a few Zonai are left, becoming more like savages and develops into their own branch... Keep that in mind.
Then one day, the demon within the Ganondorf who was sealed deep underground, leaks out through cracks in the earth
The demons, and Demise himself (the Demon King as he's also refered as), literally comes out from where Ganondorf is sealed. The Demon has left Ganondorf's body and is now in his pure form. Demise is the true form of the demon that resided within Ganondorf all those years ago during the Imprisoning War, and he has now ascended from Ganondorf's body and up to the surface. And as we see, the scar from the Tear that Ganondorf used can still be seen in Demise's forehead:
Hylia and the rest manage, through their Zonai technology, to lift the land into the sky
just like her ancestors of the Zonai could. She then keeps fighting, uses the Triforce, and seals Demise.
Thousands of years pass, and the ancient Hyrule on the surface fade into legend. Only Gorons and other species are left down there, and the ancient Rito are now exctinct. Skyward Sword happens, and at the end of the game, Demise finally unleashes the never-ending curse upon Link and Zelda. THIS explains why there is no Link or Master Sword during TOTK's memories - because Demise's curse isn't active yet
. SS doesn't show the origin of Ganondorf, but rather the origin of the curse. From THIS point on, a boy with a hero's spirit and the godess' blood are reborn anew alongside Demise's incarnations.
People later start to learn of the Sacred Realm and the Triforce and conflict came from it. Rauru, most likely a long decendant from Rauru and Sonia, thus built the second Temple of Time in history, made that the only entrance to the Sacred Realm and sealed it behind the Door of Time. Even though the Zonai who served the gods are long gone, there are a few humans remaining who were long decendants of the Zonai and thus still posess their magic. Due to their dangerous magic and evil intentions, they are banished to a different world called the Twilight Realm, and their ancient magic are sealed within what's called the Fused Shadow. Why is the Twili the same as the Zonai?
Because first of all, it's never stated WHO got banished, only that they were interlopers who were skilled at magic. And they are shown as hylians, but they have Zonai blood (just like Zelda has Hylia's blood and thus her magic). The Zonai blood still remains in certain hylians after mating with them for eons. These hylians, now transformed into the Twili after being in the Twilight Realm for so long, still posess their ancient ancestor's magic, seen through their green magic, their anti-gravity magic, and Swirl Symbols. The Fused Shadow is filled with Zonai Swirls and even has serpants breathing fire, another very common Zonai symbolism. And hell, even Zant's throne is filled with Zonai Swirls identical to the ones we see in BOTW and TOTK... and, at the top of the throne, we even see a big Zonai Eye symbol...
There is literally more
evidence of the Twili being long decendants of the Zonai than evidence that contradicts it.
Zelda and Link's decendants later brings all lands together and founds the new Hyrule once again.
A civil war breaks out, and from there, Ocarina of Time occurs, and events repeat themselves in an eerily similar matter as they did all those thousands of years ago; Ganondorf is born and does not want to be under Hyrule's regime. Yet, at this time still, the ancient corpse of Ganondorf is trapped deep, deep underground. People say two Ganondorfs cannot exist at once. But why not? The Ganondorf from deep underground is essentially dead, and the Demon powers aren't in him. He's basically kept on ice through countless thousands of years. The very first Ganondorf is sealed deep below the Earth throughout all of the Zelda games.
After all the games, X amount of years pass and we end up with the Great Calamity, where this malice from the ancient Ganondorf finally leaks out, and the Sheikah (who still has the technological knowledge they learned from the Zonai all those years ago) constructs the Divine Beasts and Guardians. Coincidence that Sheikah's protectors (Guardians) are called the same as the presumably Zonai-constructed Guardians from SS?
The Sheikah are then "banished" by the king for being too dangerous (again, that happened to the Zonai, only more dramatic back then). The Yiga Clan that forms here is similar to what happened to the Zonai. Zonai and Sheikah became the Twili and Yiga Clan.
Again, history mirrors itself. Master Kogah of the Yiga Clan? Crazy and unpredictable? Sounds familiar to Zant, doesn't it?
And even though the pure Zonai race was gone long before Ocarina of Time, their remains can still be found throughout the series - as seen with the Twilight Realm and the symbols and magical similarities. If these are built by the Zonai when they were still fully present, or if they're made by hidden decendants in the present times, is unknown.
The Tower of the Gods share the same dot-connected pattern as both the Fused Shadow and the Sheikah Technology in BOTW. Tower of the Gods is also filled with Zonai square swirls, especially in the boss arena and the boss itself. The boss (Gohdan) is even designed like a Zonai construct with its mask design, eye symbols and the blue-green colors and yellow top.
As you see in BOTW and TOTK, there are 2 main swirl designs the Zonai are known for: The square swirls as seen in the pics above, and the rounded ones with a little tail at the end. This may represent different lineages of the Zonai, where the square ones represent the original good ones, and the rounded ones represent the lineage that evolved into being more barbaric and eventually become the interlopers.
The Earth Temple from the Wind Waker shares a fun similarity to BOTW's barbarian armor. HIGHLY probably a coincidence, but fun to think about nontheless:
Both the doors in the Earth Temple and the Barbarian Armor set have skulls and pink-purple hair or spikes. May again be a coincidence. However...
The temple also seem to be filled with ancient symbols that are not Hylian. And, most importantly...
The boss of the temple seem to have the Zonai swirl on his belly, alongside the swirls all along the arena walls. This one is a long reach, but it's fun to theorize if the Earth Temple is an ancient Zonai constructed temple. It's worth noting that the boss wears a mask, a staple among the Zonai... It is possible that the Earth Temple has acted as a prison for the savage Zonai at one point.
World was created. Zonai served the gods in the beginning and were highly advanced. Hylia was the first woman who posessed godlike powers and she was a human. Sheikah was a tribe who protected her and her family, aka the royal family. The Zonai decended to the lands and created the ancient robots, a ship for them, and had them mine Zonite in the Lanayru Mining Facility. They taught the Sheikah their technology. They married with humans and the races started to merge. Various structures were built, including Tower of the Gods. The original Temple of Time was created close to the mine, and Rauru the Zonai and Sonia the human brought the lands together and made Hyrule. Ganondorf was born and had a demon inside him, and he killed Sonia and took one of the Secret Stones, bringing out the demon within him. Rauru created, or started the process of creating, the Goddess Sword. Ganondorf was later sealed deep underground by Rauru and the sages he chose. The pure Zonai race faded into legend but blood relatives in form of humans remains.
The demon within the deeply sealed Ganondorf leaked through the ground and escaped thousands of years later. This demon was known as Demise. The scar on his forhead comes from Ganondorf's earlier Tear placement there. Hylia used her ancestor's technology and/or magic to once again raise islands into the sky. Demise was sealed, and Hyrule became forgotten and only certain races survived and lived on the surface. Demise broke free, Link (the first hero) was born and found the old Zonai Goddess sword, forged it into the Master Sword, and defeated Demise. Demise's curse was created, binding the 3 of them together for eternity. The old, deceased corpse of Ganondorf was still sealed deep, deep below the Earth.
Generations pass, decendants of the Zonai who has become power-hungry and dangerous in magic, was sealed to the Twilight Realm. Rauru, a decendant/relative of Rauru and Sonia, built the second Temple of Time and blocked it off with the Door of Time. Hyrule was once again united and founded.
A civil war broke loose and the Hero of Time was born. Ganondorf was born again with the power of the Demon King, while the ancient first Ganondorf was still sealed deep below the ground. The timeline split. Various artifacts and structures from the ancient Zonai can still be found.
In the distant future, the sealed ancient Ganon has his powers leak through the depths and into the world as Calamity Ganon. The Sheikah, having passed down the ancient Zonai knowledge through all generations, makes weapons to defeat it. 10 000 years later, Calamity Ganon comes back, and is eventually defeated. Link and Zelda then finds the very first Ganondorf from eons back, sealed deep below Hyrule Castle. The war depicted on the walls is the very first war. The first war against Ganondorf and the demon Demise.
Hyrule has been founded many times throughout history, and the Zonai Rauru and the Hylia decendant Sonia founded the very first one, way before Skyward Sword.

2023.06.01 12:18 Rhazein Wearing Gear at a Open Skate
So I’m brand new to hockey and can probably count how many times I’ve been ice skating on my fingers and toes. I’ve had pretty good balance my whole life so I could hold my own cruising around in a free skate.
I’ve played two games with the old timers in my area and my god, I am dead weight to whichever team I’m on just from lack of speed and ability to skate backward. I ultimately end up doing laps skating as hard as I can just to keep up and stay onside.
I recently discovered after using my own gear last night with skates that aren’t 4 sizes too big I feel much more confident taking risks/ falling down.
Is it weird to show up to a public free skate in hockey gear? And if not, how much of it could I wear before I look weird to the other patrons?
Due to work schedule I can’t make it to most lessons offered and feel like I just need more ice time to get where I need to be.
Thanks in advance!
Edit: A little update for y’all. Thank you all for the kind and informative responses! I called ahead and asked the arena about it like some had suggested and unfortunately they frown upon wearing full gear but said people usually can just wear elbow pads which is a little disappointing.
This is my first interaction/post in this community and felt very welcome and excited to be a part of such a wonderful group. Maybe someday I’ll see some of you out on the ice!

2023.06.01 07:50 Substantial_Path_430 Bomber
The Bomber is best used as a defensive troop, being able to take out Barbarians, Skeleton Army, Goblins, Spear Goblins, Archers and other ground swarms more effectively than most other cards, due to his moderate splash radius, moderate damage and low Elixir cost. Even though he has low hitpoints, his survivability is good for his Elixir cost, as he is able to survive any 2 Elixir damaging spell of similar level. Therefore, using any spell that is more expensive is usually a waste of Elixir, as a Fireball or Arrows played to defeat a Bomber results in an Elixir advantage for the opponent unless the player can hit something else with the spell such as a Princess Tower or troops nearby. He has a lot of damage potential when placed safely behind high hitpoint troops such as a Giant. A lone Bomber can be countered with a Zap, Giant Snowball or The Log alongside the help of a Princess Tower without the Bomber doing any damage. The player should hold the Zap ready, and when the Bomber is within range of the Arena Tower, cast the spell. The Princess Tower's damage along with the Zap's stun time of 0.5 seconds will prevent the Bomber from throwing any bombs for a neutral Elixir trade. For a further Positive Elixir Trade, the Ice Spirit can counter him due to the Bomber taking 2 hits to defeat it, allowing your Crown Tower to finish him off. For just 2 Elixir, the Bomber deals good area damage and is one of the cheapest counters to Barbarians due to his range. In fact, it takes a Bomber 4 throws to defeat the same level Barbarians (with the third throw leaving them at critical health, resulting in any other hit defeating the Barbarians), and a Bomber 1 level higher only requires 3 throws. He complements tank pushes very well because of this. However, due to his somewhat slow hit speed, the Bomber will often be taken out by the Barbarians, but the Player can place him in the center to increase the Barbarians' travel time. Another method is to place protective Troops such as the Ice Golem or allow the Crown Tower to finish them off after the third throw. An effective way to counter a lone Bomber is to place a cheap unit like Skeletons or an Ice Spirit followed immediately by another cheap unit like Goblins. The first unit will distract the Bomber while the second unit destroys him. This is generally a negative Elixir trade, but can used to make an counterpush. Surrounding the Bomber with Skeletons can cause him to take them out in two hits instead of one due to the deploy stagger of the Skeletons, though this is somewhat inconsistent due to the Bomber's area damage radius. The Bomber cannot attack air units, making him vulnerable against Minions and flying troops. However, when using the Bomber, the player can place protective troops such as the Giant or the Baby Dragon. Since he is very light, the Bomber can be pushed by almost any other troop in the game. In particular, fast units like the Goblins can provide the Bomber with a major speed boost. Putting this card with Spear Goblins is a good idea since together they can engage targets within their comfortable range, making for a quick ranged point-target and splash damage backup for the player's other troops across the river, or even a quick and small push. If protected by an Ice Golem, the Bomber can take care of mini tanks like the Elite Barbarians, Knight, Mini P.E.K.K.A, Bandit, and others due to his decent damage per hit. The Bomber is interchangeable with the Wizard, based on the player's preference and tactics. However, he cannot attack air troops and has fewer hitpoints, meaning he can be one-shot by Fireball or Arrows. The Bomber is also better in desperate situations where the player's Elixir is low, as he only costs 2 Elixir, as opposed to the 5 Elixir Wizard. A good counter for the Bomber is the Bandit. The Bandit will dash towards the Bomber, dodging the bomb thrown at her, which will leave her at full health for a counter attack. This is better when the Bomber is in the middle of the opponent's territory as this will allow the Bandit to reach the Tower faster

2023.06.01 03:45 Soalai Every Old Tour Performance Ranked (Fearless through Reputation)
Disclaimer: This is an old post. I wrote it in March but it was never approved until now.
In preparation for Eras' opening night, I went back and watched every previous tour in full, either the official DVDs, or other full filmed versions if the DVD was unavailable or incomplete. Then I tried to rank all the performances.
This is not a ranking of the song itself but rather the presentation, staging, originality, etc. Surprise songs from the same tour will all count as one. Would love to know your favorites, and how you think Eras stacks up!
91. Speak Now World Tour – Fearless / Hey, Soul Sister / I'm Yours
The start of this tour's acoustic set, where she sat under a tree, strumming the ukulele. Points for the outfit, but I think this was an inferior arrangement of this particular song.
#. Red Tour – Treacherous
Weird choices were made here. Why was she wearing a tutu and dancing ballet for one of her most serious, adult songs? Why was this the main set closer? I think this would have worked better during the acoustic set, then she could close with Everything Has Changed or something. Still hard to complain about the song itself, though. The fog machines suited it.
89. Fearless Tour – Our Song
Cute, but she mostly just stood in one place and there was some awkward butt shaking in the middle.
88. Fearless Tour – White Horse
Part of the acoustic set. It followed Tim McGraw, but I think two songs that slow wasn't a good pacing choice and this one just doesn't fill an arena the way Tim McGraw does.
87. Red Tour – Stay Stay Stay / Ho Hey
I'm surprised this was part of the set. She did it basically how you'd expect, bopping around, kinda campy. I like how she had a moment goofing around with Amos.
86. Red Tour – Holy Ground
This song is made for a stadium setting, but I really think she should have been playing the guitar during it, or somehow done more. The way it was, it just sounded like noise. The dancers dressed like sirens did liven it up, but were also kinda cartoony.
85. 1989 World Tour – I Wish You Would
Basically the same performance she already did like three times before in the show. The real MVP was that one dancer in the back who did a flip off the chin-up bar.
84. Fearless Tour – Teardrops On My Guitar
I like how they turned the big screens into bookshelves, to continue the imagery of both high school and fairy tales. However, the singing didn't sound great here.
83. Speak Now World Tour – Fifteen
Sounded fuller than the Fearless tour version, but I think the giant princess gown didn't really suit the song. (Some shows also had her performing Ours in this spot.)
82. Fearless Tour – Fifteen
The first more intimate performance in this tour. She was seated and you can tell from the look in her eyes that the song made her feel nostalgic. Some videos of this have a teal dress and some have yellow; I prefer the teal.
81. Speak Now World Tour – Surprise Covers
A variety of covers on the guitar, during her acoustic set. She showed her versatility here as she did everything from classics to modern hits.
80. Fearless Tour – Hey Stephen
The one where she snuck around the hallways and popped out on the other side of the stadium. Great for the nosebleeds.
79. Red Tour – State Of Grace
She started off behind a red curtain, her silhouette singing the opening lines. (Unfortunately, the videos I watched had her struggling a lot with her earpiece and singing totally off-key for the first verse, but I know that wouldn't have happened every night.) A decent rock banger to open the show, if a little repetitive.
78. Red Tour – I Almost Do
The first of this tour's acoustic performances on the B stage. Nothing terrible but nothing remarkable either. It was about the lyrics and emotions, not the theatrics.
77. Red Tour – Begin Again
Staged the same way as I Almost Do, which was an appropriate way to do this song, but I can't help but think it would have worked better closer to the end.
76. 1989 World Tour – Bad Blood
It was fine, but by this point in the concert, I'm tired of the same kind of performance again.
75. Fearless Tour – Tell Me Why
Typical energetic angry Tay performance. She made some weird movements but that silver dress was everything.
74. Speak Now World Tour – The Story Of Us
Similar to Tell Me Why above from the previous tour.
73. Speak Now World Tour – Last Kiss
This version was a tad faster than the studio version, and the vocal delivery wasn't quite as sad; the sighs and the faint quiver in her voice that people love so much weren't really there. Still a nice rendition. The crowd was sobbing.
72. 1989 World Tour – Love Story
A nice synth arrangement that wisely went in a different direction than the older tours. By this point, both she and the audience had outgrown the princess gowns. However, I was kinda waiting for something more to happen, like fireworks or something.
71. Fearless Tour (2009 only) – Change
A faithful adaptation of this song, and a good choice for the main set closer.
70. 1989 World Tour – Welcome To New York
That was a lot of dancers! A decent opener, flashy and just '80s enough.
69. Red Tour – You Belong With Me
A sort of girl group throwback, with Taylor and the backup singers in matching red dresses and gloves. It was OK, and a good choice to perform one of her smash hits years later, but quite removed from the teenage angst this song came from.
68. 1989 World Tour – New Romantics
Similar to Welcome To New York which preceded it, this one worked early in the set almost as well as it works to close the deluxe album. Love her blue eyeshadow.
67. Speak Now World Tour – Mine
Pretty straightforward, but the red guitar is a nice touch. (Was she already dropping hints at Red?)
66. Red Tour – Sparks Fly
On a hanging platform that slowly moved around the arena, while the screens in back showed actual sparks. It was cool, but I'm not sure it was the best idea to limit her movement for arguably the loudest, most energetic song in her catalog at the time.
65. 1989 World Tour – I Knew You Were Trouble
The rock version. A bit slow and heavy but I appreciate her doing something new with the song.
64. 1989 World Tour – This Love
Could have been part of the acoustic set, but instead she upped the electronic and bass sounds and added fireworks. A nice breather before the last few songs.
63. Reputation Stadium Tour – End Game
Solid, but didn't stand out among the shenanigans of the other songs early in the show.
62. Red Tour – Everything Has Changed (with Ed Sheeran)
This one had a laid back feel that matches the song, but the raised platform and fans waving their lights gave it a little something extra. Ed sounded great. I kinda respect that he made no attempt to dress to the aesthetic.
61. Fearless Tour (2009 only) – I'm Only Me When I'm With You (with Kellie Pickler and Gloriana)
A very energetic country number with all the opening performers, the first of a two-song finale.
60. Speak Now World Tour – Surprise Guest Songs
She didn't have one at every show of this tour, but they were all pretty fun, with a mix of genres. The crowd, of course, loved them. It's really amazing to see how many friendships and connections she made in the industry, even early on.
59. Red Tour – Surprise Guest Songs
See above. Every one of these videos I found, Taylor had a different outfit, which is impressive.
58. Speak Now World Tour – You Belong With Me
She walked from the B stage back to the main stage, hugging and shaking hands with fans along the way. It's clear from including this song that, though Speak Now was a more adult album than Fearless, she knew most of her fans were still teenagers and still needed these songs about high school.
57. Fearless Tour – You Belong With Me
Her vocals weren't strong in the clips that I watched, but the costume was iconic.
56. Fearless Tour – The Way I Loved You
Sometimes done in the silveblack dress and sometimes in the purple. The way she moved between the two halves of the stage was pretty on-the-nose for the song, but I love how she featured Grant the guitarist. Hair Force One for the win! Also, it was a crime that they left this off the Journey to Fearless DVD.
55. Red Tour – The Lucky One
Taylor was dressed like a retro Hollywood starlet, and the dancers were paparazzi with cameras or screaming fans. A very literal presentation of this song which probably helped it stick in people's minds more.
54. Reputation Stadium Tour – Style / Love Story / You Belong With Me
I think Style was a weird choice to mash up with these two songs, but it worked well enough as a showcase for the band, many of whom had been with her over a decade by this point.
53. 1989 World Tour – Blank Space
She said her goal here was to recreate the music video, but I'm not sure this really conveyed the message of the song; she should have interacted with the dancers more to achieve that effect. Still a very entertaining performance, though.
52. 1989 World Tour – All You Had To Do Was Stay
The cherry on top: columns of blue smoke shot out every time the distorted voice squeaked "stay!" Not sure what was up with that chair, though.
51. Red Tour – 22
A big party, just as this song should be. I'm sure that, when seeing it live, the energy would have been off the charts. The choreography was impressive, more than we usually see from her.
50. Fearless Tour – Picture To Burn
The screens were on fire, so it's exactly how you'd expect her to stage this song. The guitar slayed.
49. Reputation Stadium Tour – Blank Space
I think the red bodysuit, gyrating choreography, and multiple Taylors on the back screen actually better conveyed the "character" she's playing in the song. Like she's this femme fatale with multiple personalities.
48. 1989 World Tour – Clean
Now here's a song that could have used some fake rain, somehow. Even so, the images on the big screen were quite lovely.
47. Speak Now World Tour – Mean
I think it was a good choice to keep this one simple. Just that porch-shaped mini stage with her band beside her. The song itself is a whole mood, so it didn't need a lot of theatrics.
46. Red Tour – Mean
Basically the same as the Speak Now performance, just with a different outfit and shaped stage.
45. Reputation Stadium Tour – Call It What You Want
Not as big a song as most of this album, but a nice warm moment before the crazy finale. I do dig the purple dress, and how the dancer she danced with was a redhead (not unlike a certain British actor).
44. Fearless Tour – Tim McGraw
Making this slow dance into exactly what it was meant to be: a swaying sing-along, everyone's phones or lighters in the air. She walked through the crowd to hug the fans.
43. Speak Now World Tour – Dear John
For the first couple verses, she just sat on the arch/bridge thing, and I kinda wondered if anything else was going to happen. Then I said "holy shit!" as the fireworks exploded up everywhere. We know she may never perform this one again, so I have serious FOMO that I did not see this show back then.
42. Speak Now World Tour – Speak Now
First time she wore the distinct purple Speak Now dress, possibly the outfit of the era. The crowd were singing along like crazy. The scenery definitely brought the song to life even if it normally isn't the most energetic from the era. She walked through the crowd shaking hands while the wedding guests tossed the bouquet around, wearing the most late 2000s/early 2010s party dresses imaginable.
41. Fearless Tour – Forever & Always
Boy was she pissed at a certain Jonas back then. Red dress, red microphone, red couch, red text on the back screen saying "They shouldn't do bad things." The notes in head voice sound kinda weak, but she nailed the high note with the microphone lean. Insane stumbling down the stairs and throwing herself all over the stage. Very extra.
40. Speak Now World Tour – Better Than Revenge
Reminiscent of the Forever & Always performance, but her vocals were better here. Grant and Paul got a guitar solo (or duet, I guess).
39. Reputation Stadium Tour – Getaway Car
Sonically, all but identical to the studio version. The "Why She Disappeared" poem beforehand and the desert visuals onscreen complemented it and helped turn it into more of a story.
38. Reputation Stadium Tour – King Of My Heart
The huge drums were a great touch. You can see how happy she was, which didn't always come across with just a superficial listen to the Rep album tracks.
37. Fearless Tour – Fearless
One of my favorite songs sounded even better live. Her smile, stomping and spinning around, totally captured the spirit of the song. Bonus points for adding in the name of the city each night.
36. Fearless Tour – You're Not Sorry / What Goes Around…Comes Around
First appearance of the piano head flip. These two songs worked decently mashed up, but I wonder how it would have been if she stayed at the piano the whole time.
35. 1989 World Tour – I Know Places
The moving doors were pretty cool.
34. 1989 World Tour – Surprise Songs
The raised walkway and whole stadium lit up blue was an excellent way to do the acoustic set. Props to her for not sitting down the way she did on the other tours, that had to take stamina. (In my heart, the sing-along of You Are In Love from the DVD is the "canon" performance here because it was part of the album.)
33. 1989 World Tour – Style
Probably the most effective use of the catwalk, given how it perfectly fit the lyrics. The dancers were brave for roller skating on it.
32. Reputation Stadium Tour – Bad Blood / Should've Said No
Another snake, this time a skeletal one transporting her to the upper stage. These songs worked very well mashed up; just listen how the crowd went nuts at that first banjo lick.
31. Reputation Stadium Tour – Dress
Another huge improvement from the studio version. It wasn't as high pitched, therefore more listenable. The sheets waving around everywhere were a nice subtle way to remind us what this song was about, in case people were too distracted by the pretty lights and synths to listen to the lyrics.
30. 1989 World Tour – Enchanted / Wildest Dreams
By this point, the piano mash-ups while wearing a long gown were getting kind of predictable. However, this was a great choice of mash-up and I dig whatever shape that piano was supposed to be.
29. Speak Now World Tour – Long Live
Another song that's tailor-made for a stadium just the way it is. The sparkly silver guitar was perfect.
28. Red Tour – Red
Now this is how you do a rock number. She had the sparkly red guitar and the dancers were waving giant red sheets all around.
27. Fearless Tour – Love Story
Once again, iconic. Ball gowns twirling until she changed into a white wedding dress, which def looked more like a prom dress. The backgrounds on the screen were low-res by today's standards, but this is what a lot of people still think of when they think of Taylor Swift.
26. Red Tour – Love Story
Similar to the Fearless tour version, with different costumes. The vocals weren't good in the video I watched, but we know she can do it. I especially like the moment where she grabbed her dance partner and ran across the stage with him – "escape this town for a little while."
25. Reputation Stadium Tour – Gorgeous
Classy move to use this song to introduce the dancers and backup singers. Also those cats in the Netflix recording – were they on the screens at the actual tour?!
24. Reputation Stadium Tour – Delicate
Finally bringing some color, as well as this era's version of the floating cage. The song is more romantic than what came before, but the gold tendrils wrapping around were still reminiscent of snakes.
23. Reputation Stadium Tour – We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together / This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things
An all-out romp to close the show.
22. Reputation Stadium Tour – Surprise Songs
Your feelings about this will probably depend on the individual song, especially if you saw the tour live. The videos I've seen were all great, showcasing how her vocals and guitar skills improve with every tour. Also, probably the last time we'll ever hear the 5-minute ATW live.
21. 1989 World Tour – Shake It Off
Basically the only way to do this song. I dig the royal blue.
20. Speak Now World Tour – Our Song
A definite improvement from the Fearless tour version. The prairie dress, the braid, dueting with Caitlin the fiddle player, and much more movement around the stage.
19. Speak Now World Tour – Sparks Fly
DROP EVERYTHING NOW! Excellent choice to start with this instead of Mine. The dress legit looked like it's sewn out of fireworks.
18. Red Tour – All Too Well
No frills, just Taylor at a red piano and this magnificent song swelling until it filled the whole arena. Her voice was quite raw and emotional here.
17. 1989 World Tour – Surprise Guest Songs
A major feature of this tour, done at every show.
16. Reputation Stadium Tour – Shake It Off (with Charli XCX and Camila Cabello)
As well done as the 1989 Tour version was, this one was a step up. I love the snakes bopping around. The message of this song worked just as well with the themes of Rep.
15. Reputation Stadium Tour – Dancing With Our Hands Tied
(Or So It Goes, in some performances.) Arguably the finest of all her acoustic sets. Beautiful stripped-down renditions of songs that I overlooked at first on the album. Some people say DWOHT is her most romantic song, and you can see why here. I also love the green get-up, which was still reminiscent of the snake motif but had its own flavor.
14. 1989 World Tour – Out Of the Woods
The forceful yet stuttering choreography really served the anxious nature of the song. The paper airplanes whizzing back and forth were a nice touch. Also the perfect spot in the show to put it – very climactic.
13. Red Tour – We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
The finale where she brought the whole damn circus, literally. Sing it, clowns.
12. Reputation Stadium Tour – …Ready For It?
The old Taylor was dead.
11. Speak Now World Tour – Enchanted
They nailed the costume and the scenery yet again. She sang it better here than on the studio recording.
10. Speak Now World Tour – Haunted
Excellent transition here, as the Enchanted forest turned dark blue and the giant bell appeared. Speaking of the bell, her smacking it (but not really) may be the most dramatic thing to happen in any Taylor Swift live performance. Her dress was even tattered at the bottom. I'm here for all of it.
9. 1989 World Tour – We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
When Taylor became the rock goddess we always knew she was.
8. Speak Now World Tour – Back To December / Apologize
Beautiful presentation of this song. Full string orchestra here (I think?). Really leaned into the winter imagery with the light blue gown, white piano, and snowflakes falling in the background.
8. Reputation Stadium Tour – Don't Blame Me
She swore she doesn't love the drama, but this performance would suggest otherwise.
7. Reputation Stadium Tour – I Did Something Bad
A strong performance with lots of pyro, but it really elevated at the bridge, where the dancers lifted Taylor up and she leaned back into the pillar of fire on the screen. "Light me up," indeed.
6. Speak Now World Tour – Love Story
An improvement over the Fearless version in every respect. She swooped over the crowd on a floating balcony, while pairs of dancers in period dress spun on trapezes hanging from the ceiling.
5. Fearless Tour – Should've Said No
THE RAIN MACHINE! With the words in it! I think this spoke for itself. She literally killed it.
4. 1989 World Tour – How You Get the Girl
Another rain performance, but this time with neon umbrellas and a unique glow-in-the-dark bubblegum dress. She didn't need to do all this for such a deep cut, but she did. Underrated.
3. Reputation Stadium Tour – Look What You Made Me Do
The superior version of this song (addendum: until Eras, that is.) The black-and-gold snake robe, the "tilted stage," and of course Karyn the massive inflatable snake. Helped many people appreciate and understand what was once a very polarizing song, myself included.
2. Reputation Stadium Tour – Long Live / New Year's Day
A gorgeous piano mash-up that went right to the heart. In my opinion, Long Live belongs on every tour, and the line "hold on to spinning around" flowed perfectly into "hold onto the memories." Beyond that, this was the moment that freed her from the bad-girl big-reputation persona she had presented for most of the show. It was human and vulnerable. Just look at the joy on her face as she gazed out at the audience. We stan a queen.
1. Red Tour – I Knew You Were Trouble
Perhaps not as iconic as the circus number, but sure as hell should be. Started with the fiddle player going absolutely insane, on a sparkly red fiddle no less! Followed by Taylor and all the dancers acting out some sort of masquerade ball, eventually tearing off her poofy white gown to reveal a sexy black and gold romper. An electrifying dubstep Phantom of the Opera.
Thank you for reading all this!

2023.06.01 02:54 No_Catch_1490 A full list of all cards that imo should be reworked before Gwentfinity
Warning: this is a very long post. I was bored so I decided to look at every Gwent card and eventually came to realize there are a LOT of cards in the game that I haven't seen in years or ever. I thought might as well do a writeup and see what we could do with them. Thanks if you do read it and appreciate any feedback.
Section 1: Need reworks because they are weak or fit in nowhere
The devs have done a great job bringing forgotten cards/archetypes into viability over the past few patches. I did some digging and found a bunch more cards that deserve to be saved as well, and also came up with some rough concepts/suggestions of where they could fit in with a rework :)
Note: I focused mostly on cards that aren't just weak numbers wise, but also serve no purpose in any archetype or don't fit the lore with their ability. Cards that are just powercrept were only briefly touched on. I tried to suggest new ability and archtype ideas based on adding diversity of playstyles and lore friendly mechanics, however, I did not rigorously think about balance. These are just meant to be rough ideas (I didn't include poweprovs intentionally for most suggestions) so take them with a grain of salt.
Anyway, let's begin.
- Ale of the Ancestors: might be the worst card in the game, maxes out at 15 boost for 12 provs in a 10 card round. Suggestion: honestly, no idea, something with Resilience? Hand or deck buff (your units are drinking the ale before battle)? Something that interacts with the number of units in discard (since "Ancestors")?
- Uma's Curse: overcosted RNG-based card. Have seen it played once or twice but mostly as a meme. Suggestion: crazy RNG should never be viable- maybe an effect that transforms an enemy into a useless unit temporarily (to fit with the lore). Such as, "Transform a unit into Uma (1 power no abilities). After 3 turns or when you Pass, transform it back to its original form and power."
- Dragon's Dream: a slightly better but overcosted Crushing Trap, which also telegraphs the effect to the enemy, making it pretty useless. Suggestion: it's a bomb that gets ignited by fire or other bombs, and we recently got bomb reworks- possibly using the Infuse status on enemies or acting as a support artifact to augment your other bombs or damaging effects? This could be a slippery slope towards strong unitless strategies, but I think it's a shame for this card to be so worthless when it has nice art and even a unique row effect.
- Ornate Censer: a rework that missed the mark (though the original effect was abhorrent so I don't mind as much). Rarely plays for numbers close to its provisions and requires crazy setup to do so. Suggestion: honestly increasing the floor by adding some guaranteed damage/boost might be enough to make it worth picking in decks that do a lot with orders in one turn, like Siege or SY bounty.
- Avallac'h (normal, not Sage): honestly forgot this card even existed. Very lame and useless especially considering the character's lore powers. Suggestion: maybe a spell tutor or support, to work with Alzur in a new spell package or archetype?
- Enraged Ifrit and Colossal Ifrit: 10 for 10, even with 5 being damage, is awful in this day and age, and Colossal Ifrit is a bit better but far too slow and vulnerable to be usable. Suggestion: not too sure about this one, but Ifrits are constructed by mages, so maybe these cards could somehow synergize with Summoning Circle or Spells. Unlike the Insanity archetype I theorycrafted later on, I don't have much of an idea how this could look, so I'm leaving this in as a rough idea.
- Primordial D'ao and Frenzied D'ao: two very powercrept cards that could theoretically work as techs but are far too weak to be viable. Suggestion: yeah I'm at a loss for this, idek what a D'ao is lore wise- would they work with mages? Monsters?
- Eskel: Pathfinder: I don't think I need to explain why a 9 provision 6 power 1pt/turn engine that's also rowlocked is not good. Suggestion: he could fit in nicely with the new witcher reworks as a tutor or protector of other witchers via boost/armor for example.
- Gregoire de Gorgon: considering this guy is the final boss of the Toussaint tourney in TW3, this card is so disappointing and weak, a 5 for 9 that can become a 10 for 9 with setup of a 1power enemy? Sadge. Suggestion: move him to NG and give him a new home with the other NG Knights, with an ability themed around being the big boy Champion. Maybe something like "Deploy: set self to the power of the highest power Knight on the battlefield, plus one" (obviously with a high provision cost).
- Merigold's Hailstorm, Manticore Venom, Wolfsbane, and Bekker's Rockslide: all of these are just disappointing understats (though Wolfsbane has some meme potential) that don't really fit in anywhere. Suggestion: I wouldn't buff Hailstorm and Rockslide to be as good as faction cards, but they could become usable with a Spells archetype becoming a thing (with Alzur and some of the other cards I've mentioned above). Wolfsbane could be moved to SK and reworked to become Alchemy support. Manticore Venom could be moved to MO and reworked to become Organics support.
- Olgierd Von Everec (normal, not Immortal): the worse, never-used, and frankly unnecessary Olgierd, ironically despite being the OG version. Suggestion: something to synergize with Iris or Vlod or Gaunter even? Maybe a unit with very high armor but low power (you know since he has a Heart of Stone haha).
- Marlene de Trastamara, and Iris Von Everec (normal, not Shade): these cards are related to Gaunter (and Iris to Olgierd obviously) from a lore standpoint but have nothing to do with the others ability-wise. Suggestion: I'm not smart enough to come up with cool effects, but something to do with Tranformations/ArmoDoomed would be awesome.
- Cyprian Wiley and Carlo Varese: I know these cards are ancient powercrept remnants of when SY didn't exist, but at this point there's no reason for them to exist. Suggestion: move them to SY and rework them to help their respective gangs, maybe breathing some life into the dying Devo SY archetypes, or rework them into more general use cards with modern power that could find a home elsewhere (like Francis Bedlam).
- Nivellen: a cool character from the books that is pretty pointless and un-thematic in Gwent. Suggestion: I would really like some kind of transformation themed ability related to his curse and it being lifted, but I'm not sure of the specifics.
- Note on other powercrept Neutral bronzes: I don't think every card needs to be viable or strong, I think it's fine for many of the Neutral bronzes to remain slightly weaker than faction cards and only be useful in very niche situations. However, there are a few that I think could be changed to fit in very nicely in existing archetypes without becoming oppressive.
- Inspirational Ballad is a basically pointless card currently, but considering Dandelion's card and ability, I think this card could be reworked to boost units in your deck- thus working with Djikstra/Erland/etc. And of course the legendary Wolf Pack which has become a meme with how bad it is, should in my opinion find a home in MO Beasts (more of that down the line).
- Peter Saar Gwynleve: neat W3 reference which is sadly just a worse Spores. Suggestion: Soldier support, perhaps something to do with extorting and punishing the enemy via damage/status (to fit with the lore).
- Fringilla Vigo: the only NG card in the entire game with Mage/Construct synergy and a weak effect to boot. Suggestion: unless new cards or sweeping reworks were to happen for the Mages/Constructs archetype, I can't really think of anything other than a generic stat buff
- Ceallach Dyffryn: a card that doesn't really serve a purpose outside of obscure memes. Suggestion: given the little we know about the character (he tries to bargain with Emhyr for his son's life), maybe he could have an effect that protects an allied unit? Like a more specialized Defender?
- Standard Bearer: a card that makes no sense in Knights because boosting multiple enemies is not optimal, and no sense in any other deck because it is very weak in 99% of scenarios. Suggestion: might work better in Soldiers, supporting the swarming aspects with an AOE boost to allies.
- Alchemist, Vicovaro Novice, Deithwen Arbalest, Menagerie Keeper, Angry Mob: a series of powercrept Bronzes that don't provide anything useful to any archetype. Suggestion: Alchemist and Vicovaro Novice fit thematically with the new bottom-of-deck-clog archetype, Deithwen Arbalest with Soldiers. The last two, not really sure.
- Morvudd: an overcosted and boring finisher for an archetype that doesn't swarm. In fact, an overcosted finisher for an archetype that doesn't really exist (unless you count Rat based memes). Suggestion: this guy could be the centerpiece of a new beast archetype, and I think using the new Predator mechanic in some way could be the play considering these are the most obvious Predators in the game. The archetype could be based around harming enemies and even your own units in order to get units big. Morvudd himself could be a payoff engine, something like "Whenever an allied Beast uses a Predator ability, do X."
- Tatterwing: a rather strange card (why doesn't it just say Consume?) that is utterly useless. Suggestion: could fit nicely into the hypothetical beasts package, perhaps with a high base power and Predator order to damage both itself and enemies?
- Alpha Werewolf and Werewolf: I have seen these cards played in unitless MO memes, but undeniably their design is boring. Suggestion: they could keep the immunity theme and still tie in to Beasts with something like a feacurse effect, debuffing enemy units to allow Predators to get them.
- Wyvern, Cockatrice, Forktail, Fiend: a collection of powercrept cards that vaguely fit into Thrive, Deathwish etc but are too weak to be played + thematically disappointing. Suggestion: make these creatures fierce with some number buffs and utilizing the Predator mechanic.
- Jotunn and Ice Troll: these guys are the only cards to utilize the controlling less units than opponent mechanic and far too weak to see play. Suggestion: Ogroids as a whole don't really exist and like 3-4 cards isn't enough to come up with a new archetype. Maybe with some new cards something could be done here, but for now I'm at a bit of a loss other than generic numbers buffs.
- Falibor: literally worse than Brokvar Warrior, a 4 provision Bronze. Lmfao. Suggestion: given the lore connection with Tridam infantry, he could serve as a finisheheavy hitter for the currently basically nonexistent Inspire/Boost archetype. Something like "whenever an allied unit is boosted, damage a random enemy unit by 1"
- Keira Metz and Sile de Tansarvillle: very boring and weak effects which mean these cards never see play. Suggestion: Mages support? Maybe giving the students some protection or providing damage payoff? Could also have something to do with card manipulation given the Lodge's plotting.
- Nenneke: the current effect is very weak and pointless. Suggestion: given that Nenneke is a gifted healer and tied to the Temple of Melitele, it would make sense for her to have an effect that supports the deck bost/shuffle archetype.
- Detmold: yet another remnant of the old and boring "boost all X by 1" designs, yet again in an archetype that doesn't really swarm and thus has no need for it. Suggestion: given his plotting and sadistic nature, he could have some damage/control based ability that would help mages. In fact, it probably makes lore sense for him to have Margarita's lock ability and her to get something else.
- Ban Ard Tutor, Cintrian Enchantress: two powercrept and pointless mages. Suggestion: both could fit in nicely into the existing mages archetype, a basic but potentially useful idea would be changing their Deploy abilities to Orders, allowing you to protect a mage you're setting up next turn.
- Vincent Meis: a cool character from W1 that has a pointless and weak ability. Suggestion: something to do with his werewolf form butchering criminals- maybe using an Order to switch between a Boosting and Damaging effect (like Botchling)?
- Smoke Them Out, Aedirnian Mauler, Kaedweni Knight, Kaedweni Sergeant, Radovid's Royal Guards, Kerack Cutthroat, Redanian Elite, Field Medic: all extremely weak, could either use small number tweaks or reworks that slot them into existing archetypes such as the hypothetical Inspire/Boost one.
- Filavandrel Aen Fidhail: overcosted and not worth it in neither handbuff nor special based decks. Suggestion: considering Filavandrel's role in the books, it would make more sense for him to be an alternative heavy hitter for Elves than handbuff/spell support.
- Milaen: a very powercrept card that doesn't really fit in anywhere. Suggestion: she was a poachetracker, so maybe a tutodeck manipulation aid for elves, maybe with Devotion payoff, to lure them away from the same old netdeck.
- Ele'yas: another powercrept card that is pointless to include compared to others. Suggestion: stick to the theme of destroying an ally, but give him a better payoff
- Braenn: very disappointing card considering her lore and too weak to justify using. Suggestion: I would love an ability that ties to her inner struggle and transition from human to dryad- like a powerful effect once you play a certain amount of Dryads or trigger Symbiosis a certain number of times.
- All trap/artifact based cards: adding this as a note. While many of these cards are powercrept, I don't think a no-unit archetype should be made strong/viable, nor do I think they should be completely reworked to something else as some really like the playstyle. Hence I think maybe it would be fine to just leave them weak.
- Wild Boar of the Sea: a very overcosted card that only plays for decent value against wide decks, and even then unreliably so. Suggestion: I think this card could help support non-GN pirates by synergizing with the scenario and other pirates, while also working with the lore of Crach's ship being feared. For example, something like "Order: Infuse an enemy unit with "This unit cannot be boosted," then damage it by 1. Gain a charge whenever you play a Gold pirate.
- Madman Lugos: a funny character with a pretty disappointing card that only gets value in very niche situations. Suggestion: I think he should have an ability representing his fiery temper and conflict with Geralt, while also synergizing with high base power warriors. Perhaps something like "Deploy: choose an allied unit and an enemy unit to Clash. Order: Clash with an enemy."
- Ulfhedinn: this card has sick art and lore but is unfortunately very unreliable. Suggestion: I recall seeing some rework concepts in the past, my personal take would be to support the Beasts/Bloodthirst archetype and give alternatives to the lame and boring Renfri package with something like "Damage an enemy Unit by 1 for each allied Beast. Deathblow: boost self by 1 for each damaged enemy."
- Donar An Hindar: another powercrept and disappointing card. Suggestion: nothing I can think of is better and more flavorful than what u/Soulless32 came up with here. Good shit man.
- Arnvald: a neat character in the lore but has kind of a boring and weak ability. Suggestion: self-damage/alchemy support? Maybe something like "Order: damage an allied unit by 4, then spawn and play Maerdrome" which also reflects his traitorous nature
- Yoana: why would a blacksmith heal? Makes no sense + is useless. Suggestion: buff her and change the Order to "Boost an allied unit by 1 and give it 1 armor" or something and you have pirates/warriors support to keep engines alive.
- Udalryk An Brokvar: extremely disappointing card considering it's a neat character and great art. Suggestion: support self-damage and Hym, and make him lore friendly, with high base power and an ability like "end of turn: damage self by 1. Berserk 1: heal self." (representing the ordeal he suffers to eventually escape the Hym's influence).
- Drummond Villager, An Craite Marauder, Svalblod Ravager, Svalblod Butcher, Dimun Pirate Captain: all these cards are just powercrept and need minor buffs or reworks to be viable. Suggestion: some numbers buffs would be fine for the warriors and pirates that already fit with their archetype (but are just too weak), but I think Svalblod Ravager and Butcher could become self-damage payoff via something like damaging enemies based on the damaged state and cult shenanigans of your side of the board.
- The Sausage Maker: technically can gain double resilience, but this card is an overcosted removal magnet. Suggestion: why not lean on his profession as body disposal and give him a crimes supporting ability like "Whenever an enemy unit is destroyed by a Crime, gain 3 coins"
- Hvitr and Aelydia: never seen this card used, it's a remnant of when each faction had a Pavko Gale clone with a different condition (Pavko is my favorite), but this one is particularly bad as it forces you to hang onto coins or constantly gain them (the fact that this is very inefficient is more an issue with Hoard as an archetype but whatever). Suggestion: this card could help make Hoard viable with a new ability that either gives them some consistency or removal reach, but I'm not sure of the exact mechanics
- Dire Mutated Hound, Greater Brothers: two interesting cards that are powercrept and belong to a nonexistent SY Armor archetype. Suggestion: rework them to help the rest of the Salamandra who are mostly Poison/pointslam based. PLEASE no more cards to cram into Nekker decks though!
- Arena Endrega, Bloody Good Friends: at this point the keys spelling "powercrept" on my keyboard are starting to look a bit worn out lmao. Suggestion: okay here's a crazy idea- Insanity archetype (more below)
- Buff these boys a bit, and bring in Cyprian Wiley who I've previously mentioned from neutrals, Nathaniel Pastodi (most insane guy I can think of), and some powercrept bronze crimes/units like Arena Ghoul, Assault, Dip in the Pontar, etc.
- The key pieces would be Cyprian Wiley who could do something like "Insanity. Fee 5: Banish an enemy unit with 4 power or less, then boost self by 1" representing his depraved tendencies, Nathaniel could indoctrinate your units into depravity with an ability like "Deploy: Infuse all your units in hand, deck, and on the battlefield that have a Fee with Insanity. If any already had Insanity, boost them by 1 instead."
- We might need a new card or two to act as simple support, such as "Cutups Fanatic" with high base power and an ability like "End of turn: damage self by 1. Whenever you trigger a fee ability with Insanity, boost self by its cost."
- A great way to integrate Oxenfurt Naturalist, another useless card, would be to tweak it slightly into something like "Coerced Physician" with a fee to Heal units, which would work well with Insanity
And that's all I've got, shit that was long. Okay, next up...
Section 2: Need reworks because they are problematic
This might be contentious, but I believe there are also a few cards that are either binary, poorly designed, or just straight up frustrating. Most of these are extremely hated by the community, and cannot be fixed with mere provision/power adjustments, hence I believe they should be reworked. There are a lot less here so I didn't split them by faction.
- Golden Nekker: probably the most polarizing card ever added. The devs keep nerfing around it instead of the card itself for some reason, when it's obvious the ability to play THREE CARDS IN ONE TURN is the issue. Suggestion: Really, I think just changing it to 10-12p and rewording the card to still work would help, as then Gwentfinity can make further changes without making it always brick. Currently, GN can just cram a ton of strong cards in their decks. Alternatively, make it only play BRONZES- three bronzes in a turn is still really good and would prevent the ludicrous level of pointswings that are currently possible.
- Imperial PractitioneVilgefortz: Renegade: a meme combo that occasionally pops up, ruining games and baffling less experienced players. Unhealthy and frankly ridiculous. Suggestion: either card is fine on its own, the interaction between them allows for the idiotic duplication play. I would propose changing Vilgefortz to support NG mages/spying/something archetype. A character of his importance deserves better than being relegated to an obnoxious meme.
- Arachas Queen: I think this card's usage is 1% Insectoids as intended, 99% some degeneracy that aims to flood the board with Madocs/Cats/Kelly/whatever. Suggestion: make her support insectoids better somehow, PLEASE no Gold duplication.
- Eternal Eclipse/Affan Hillergrand: what do you get when you cross a powerful scenario that should be heatwaved on sight to prevent Chapter 1, with a presumably unforseen interaction allowing for immediate triggering of Chapter 1? Something unfun and binary. Suggestion: change Affan back to Summon or rework him as different Soldier support, or maybe change EE Chapter 1 from "if you have a couple cultists in a long round gain 80000000 points lul" to something more manageable to play against.
- Alternatively, a shoutout to u/Heigengraw who devised a rework idea here for the entire cultists archetype, which seems cool and much less binary than the current iteration
- Reaver Hunters: I hate reavers and judging by the amount of people who instantly forfeit upon seeing Mobilization, so does everyone else. Please just end our misery and rework this card, I'm begging you devs.
And that's everything! Once again thanks if you read this far and again shoutout to the devs and everyone helping to keep this game alive. Make sure to add any cards you can think of in the comments. May Gwent continue to Gwentfinity and beyond.

2023.05.31 13:27 Styllar SGG Alpha - Impressions + AMA
| || | submitted by Styllar to MousepadReview [link] [comments]
Hey all, fellow mousepad enthusiast here.
I have been using the new SGG Alpha offered by SprintGamingGear
(formerly AgileCables) over the past week, and I would like to share some brief impressions on the pad in this post. Figure 1: 500x500mm XL Square with a Lamzu Atlantis Mini in the background
Disclaimer: I was sent this product for free, as a review unit, given that I provide an honest review detailing my personal thoughts and experiences.
The Alpha came rolled in a translucent bag, which was inside of a cardboard box - fairly standard packaging here. What was nice is that the pad immediately lay flat after opening it. In contrast to some of the other mousepads I received not too long ago, such as some X-raypad and eSports Tiger pads, this was a breath of fresh air since I did not need to spend any time gently reverse-rolling. It is also good to note that this pad has its logo placed in the bottom-left as opposed to the more common bottom-right placement. That does seem like a bit of a weird design choice in my opinion, but it does not change anything about the pad so it's fairly redundant information. Figure 2: Package with contents
It appears to be uncoated. While I have no insights on the long-term durability of the Alpha, there is nothing to suggest that it will deteriorate quickly like a Shidenkai or Vancer Ice V2 those are both glass coated/infused and are notorious for long-term durability issues
To me, this feels more reminiscent of the X-Axis of the X-raypad Traigun (Y-Axis on the Traigun is rougher), although it is a tad less abrasive. That is to say, it's nowhere near as rough as a Hien, AC2, or similar hybrid pads, but you won't feel the texture nearly as much as say a Hayate Otsu (it is also a lot quieter than the Otsu when moving the mouse across). I am personally not a huge fan of the Otsu, and would consider the Alpha's texture to feel more "refined" in this sense since it's a bit more abrasive but manages to not get picked up as much by mouse skates. If you are worried about this irritating your skin, chances are you have nothing to worry about.
Comparing to one of the Hien's I have that has minimal wear, the dynamic friction on the Alpha is a bit higher (it's a bit slower overall), but I find it has less stopping power and relies more on your sheer mouse control than the other pads I've been pitting it against.
Using the SGG Alpha as a reference point for comparisons:
- Hien - Slightly faster with higher stopping power and similar initial friction
- AC2 - Slower by a small margin but less(?) control. A bit harder for me to tell because of the rougher texture
- Traigun (tightly-knit cordura) - Faster by a small margin (slower than Hien) on X-Axis, a bit slower on Y-Axis, and with some more control but higher initial friction
- Otsu - Significantly slower dynamic friction with higher stopping power. Furthest pad away from the Alpha out of the bunch in this sector
- Grandmaster Pink Stitch (not to be confused with GM Pink SE) - Faster dynamic friction by a greater margin with similar control and stopping power
Note that these are subjective comparisons and are by no means definitive.
![img](2gzy7c28j43b1 "Figure 3: From top to bottom: Alpha, Otsu XSoft, Updated Traigun (non-pro), Hien XSoft, Hien Soft, GM Pink Stitch, AC2 ")
What is interesting to me is that while the X/Y on the Alpha feels relatively even throughout normal usage, the Y-Axis actually has a bit less stopping power than the X-Axis. I did turn the pad sideways to test this, but it's by a pretty insignificant margin, so I would say that it's nothing to really worry about... not a Hayate Kou situation here and more similar to the Hien's X/Y deviation in that it's not really noticeable during use.
The base is nothing really special. It's a fairly generic rubber base that is more common amongst most of the more budget-oriented mousepads on the market. It sticks to my wooden desk fairly well, as almost all mousepads I use do, so I have no real concerns here. The thickness of the pad, which is not stated on the SprintGG site at the time of posting, measures to be ~4mm according to my caliper for those wondering. Figure 4: From top to bottom: Alpha, GM Pink Stitch, AC2, Otsu XSoft
The stitching on the Alpha is a tier above the regular X-raypad products. It leaves a bit of a smaller footprint, is decently smoother (more of a uniform height with less ridges), and is also a tiny bit more level with the pad. That being said, it is still slightly raised above the surface, but I did not have any complaints during usage. While this does not come anywhere near Artisan-level for the footprint, the height is able to come close to Artisan Mid pads (with the Alpha being slightly higher) and some of the eSports Tiger pads that I own such as the Grandmaster Pink SE, but not the Grandmaster Pink Stitch (the Alpha is also slightly higher, similar to how it is compared to Artisan Mid).
Coming in at $35 USD/$47 CAD (excluding taxes/shipping) for the 500x500mm XL model, I believe that this is a fairly good deal for Canadians primarily due to the domestic availability. Don't get me wrong, this is still a solid mousepad, but pricing for the US/other regions may vary with regards to shipping (I believe they have a US warehouse so shipping should not be that bad), so for those of you outside of the US/Canada, you should do your own due diligence when it comes to import taxes/duties as it may not be worthwhile otherwise.
Lastly, as a Canadian myself, I'm looking forwards to future releases by SprintGG since it seems they're starting off fairly strong. While I would not personally take this pad over my Hien, that is just because I am a sucker for the rough texture... but I can easily recommend the Alpha to newcomers interested in a solid hybrid pad that is able to differentiate itself enough (particularly with regards to texture) from a lot of the Hien clones such as the AC2 and Strider to simply be considered a decent alternative
If you have any questions regarding the SGG Alpha or any other mousepads I own
