        @Milennin Yeah, the heart of the argument would be around weak/resist mechanics and not thematic skill sets (which are always cool) - but if my title is 14 words long, no one will read my article! :p

        Not really. Sure, it has the King going missing and the advisor taking the throne (sorta) but It's also about Ezra, the elf, and the Dragon's journey.

        The Undertale part, 2 main things that was really bad. One was forcing Frisk's gender into others face, demading them to agree that they are that specific gender, some would even bring up the struggle about misgendering issues irl.

        The other part was disagreement of pairing, shipping.

        @Kupotepo I frequently play Ranked in LoL, and yeah, people get incredibly toxic there. Not only are people too competitive like you said, but they also take it personally when they don't play well, looking for anyone to blame. (BTW, add me if you'd like - my summoner name is Rob Grompkowski)

        All of the amendments for my state are null pending changes in Federal law that are unlikely...they are pointless pole bait.

        Also if you only pay attention to presidential and midterm elections then you shouldn't vote at all. Local elections are generally much more important and the fact less than 10% of the population pays attention to them to blame for a lot of corruption state to state.

        @Philosophus Vagus Totally agree with you, but won't expand further since political talk isn't allowed here.

        So I just wanted to offer encouragement to cast a vote, which is so important, and to be informed while doing it. :)

        Thankfully my county puts most of its major issues on the pres/midterm ballots.

        @Sharm I think you're right! Socializer is about having shared experiences with other people, so even if the kinds of "social" experiences in MMOs don't appeal to you, it sounds like you enjoy similar dynamics in different forms.

        67% Explorer, 67% Socialiser, 60% Achiever, 7% Killer.
        Sounds roughly right. I do like to explore new areas and aspects of the game. Socialiser should be lower as I generally don't play games to socialise, though some good fun with a close friend can be great. Definitely not a PvP kind of player, so killer is definitely my lowest. I don't get kicks out of owning other players.

        @bgillisp Yeah. It resumed after 2 hours, then was delayed for a second time (more lightning), then finally resumed another hour or two later and finished, becoming the longest game in NFL history since the merger! Dolphins 27, Titans 20. Crazy stuff.

        Of course not, if it's well optimized for speed. But Yanfly's engine is not optimized for speed. The default engine is even less optimized per speed. When I built my own engine, I achieved drastic speed increase just by separating events to PIXI.Sprites and PIXI.extras.AnimatedSprites, because certain events don't need to be updated at 60 frames per second.

        And yes, a plugin could do things via checkboxes. But what difference does it make compared to notetags in terms of executed code? There are up to three ifs per check in both cases. In default engine I don't have these three checks. Yeah, three if checks are nothing. But Yanfly's plugins add up quite quickly.

        When Yanfly's plugins become optimized for speed, I will still not support any potential including them in default code, but I'll have at least one more reason to accept that. But as it stands, when I play around with MV, I use at most 6-8 Yanfly's plugins and the rest is bloatware for me. And having all 130+ Yanfly's plugins on drops my FPS to 40 and the loading times increase considerably.
