2023.03.20 19:39 KatherineWillisHHSK2 Boyfriend (33M) can't get into the mood for sex unless he wears GC2B binder - and he's cisgender, so shouldn't need one in theory?

My boyfriend told me that he can't get psyched up for sex unless he's wearing a GC2B binder which he likes for the tight feel of it, and he needs it every time we have sex.
We're a gay couple from California, been together since I was 23 and he was 24, now in the stage of reltionship where we've got a shared bank account and dealing with bills, in-laws etc. even though not married.
Being queer is a big part of our identity, we're a femme-masculine couple - I'm the feminine half, he's the bear, the more macho side.
We live in Los Angeles. Moved here from NYC for his job working with queer people in outreach work.
He's cisgender, and muscular, so in theory shouldn't need to wear one, but he claims that wearing a GC2B Black Racerback before sex gets him in the mood.
I don't find it sexy at all, told him so, he felt insulted and said:
I NEED GC2B BINDERS, FUCK YOU, MAAM, NOW GIVE ME SOME WHAM BAM THANK YOU MAAM SEX.
That was out-of-character for him, and he went trawling Facebook marketplace for Superman comics - again, out-of-character.
Our sex life's OK but he's become quite obsessed with TikTok situation in the news following it intensely, fearing a nationwide TikTok ban. He follows @khloelegend and other celebs on there.
Also, he keeps claiming that someday we'll hear this in the news:
"I am a trans man and always have been, I've always been a man in a woman's body" - Kourtney Kardashian "Bikinis didn't suit me, I want to be that tough guy with muscles and star tattoo, not who I am now as a mom'.
I'm wondering why my boyfriend has this desire for GC2B binders when he's clearly cisgender (I've seen photos of him as a 13-year-old boy dressed as the guy from Saturday Night Fever at a family party) and if it's a fetish, but he seems unable to explain.
I'm wondering, how should I deal with this? The behavior's only gone on for 3 weeks now!
He claims he saw it in a premonition/vision.

2023.03.20 19:39 ZestyPepsi 29 [M4F] UK/Anywhere - Finding my forever person

Hey everyone, hope you're doing super well. My name's Shiv and I'm from England, it's nice to meet you! I'm 29 and am currently in my final year of studies.
Some of my passions include films and music, as well as books and nature walks. I'm a massive movie geek and could talk to you for hours aboiut all the weird and wonderful movies I love so much. I love anything from drama to horror to mystery, thriller, even comedy. Do you have a favourite film? I'd love to know! And with music, I listen to just about every genre, but I mostly listen to alternative. My favourite artists include Nine Inch Nails and Portishead. I try to discover new music once a week, kinda like a little project I give to myself. It's so much fun finding a new artist or band. If we hit it off it would be so nice to maybe share playlists or recommend artists to each other. I'm currently reading The Atrocity Exhibition by J.G. Ballard. I enjoy comics and graphic novels - my favourite being Sandman by Neil Gaiman. Maybe if you have some favourite books or graphic novels we could suggest and recommend some to each other and see what we think, kinda like a mini book club for two!
Another thing I enjoy is video games. I pretty much only play on PC, if you have Steam we could find something to play together on there maybe? Most of the games I play are single player, but I'm always looking to find something new and fun to play. Some of my favourite games include Ocarina of Time, Fallout: New Vegas, Bioshock, Pokemon, I could go on!
Admittedly I'm a sucker for romance, I really enjoy the sappiness and cheesiness of it all, but I can be a total goofball too, humour and affection are my love language. I love to make people laugh and put a smile on people's faces. I feel like no matter what, laughter and making people feel happy fills me with the greatest sense of joy. So I will say in advance please excuse my awful jokes, I'm more than likely going to come out with some really bad ones. Why are elevator jokes so great? Because they work on many levels. Amazing, I know.
So what am I looking for? I'm pretty open minded and am happy with however things go, probably the best way to sum it up is I'd love to get to know you, we can chat and see how we click. Ideally I'm hoping to find my forever person, but I know this doesn't just happen overnight and it takes time to build a relationship. I'd love to find someone who is open and accepting. Someone who has ambition and goals, but also can take a step back and enjoy life as it comes. I'm more than happy to share a picture of myself once we get to chatting, I know appearance can be important so once we start talking I can show you how I look. Hopefully you've enjoyed reading this post anyway if you've got this far and hopefully we can get to know each other some more! :)

2023.03.20 19:37 SofiaTheWarlock Some thoughts I’ve been having lately

The last 12 or so months have been quite hard for me and I really need to talk about all the thoughts I’ve been having since then and everything that’s been happening. I don’t really think anyone else might care what I have to say.
The hardest thing has been adjusting to life without my friend group. Most of them turned out to be disloyal, untrustworthy and two-faced. These are people that I have known for years and it’s extremely painful to think it’s all over. My remaining friends from that friend group have drifted from each other and are both really busy, one of them is studying at a military academy and the other started his own business and just got married and will soon have a baby. I’m really happy for my friend for starting a family, but I just can’t help but look at myself like “what have I achieved?”.
I’ve been single for a little over 3 years now and the only time I liked someone, I got rejected. Me and her are still friends though and have been for 7 years and everything that happened didn’t get between us and caused us to drift apart. Initially though, that was extremely hard for me and I got extremely depressed. I started drinking and cutting myself and having really bad suicidal thoughts. I wrote a really long apology letter and only told her months later so she wouldn’t feel as guilty.
My past relationship still haunts me sometimes, despite it being so long ago, but I mostly got over everything. I broke up with my ex-girlfriend because sexual abuse was becoming routine and she ignored me when I told her to stop. It all ended when she raped me. She was over at my house and she insisted we have sex for an hour until I just gave up. I hate that I didn’t just slap her and kick her out and let her do what she did to me.
I don’t know how to find friends. I posted about this issue one time, about that girl that I thought was really nice and I wanted to be friends with her but then she started talking about Jesus and stuff that I just don’t believe in, and although I kept it polite and entertained the discussion, we ended up talking about the LGBT community and she said she found it “disgusting”, not knowing I’m actually a lesbian. We only talked about a project we had together after that and nothing else.
All this combined makes me wonder if I can even find friends. I am becoming lonelier and more depressed every day. The most social interaction I get is saying “hi” every now and then to other people whenever I go to my classes. I don’t know where to look for friends.
Also, I’ve been suspecting for a while that I might have ADHD. The difficulty I have studying among other things makes me think this might be the case.
That’s all I have to say, thanks for reading. Any advice is welcome.

2023.03.20 19:37 jrod4290 I (21M) been texting a (20F) girl for 3, almost 4 months, good chemistry and we are never dry but haven’t seen her at all.

Started talking to this girl around December, a bit before Christmas and things seemed to be going well, at least in my opinion. We have a lot to talk about and both of us have stated that we have a lot in common, up to the point where it sometimes feels like this girl is the female version of me. But all this time has passed and I still haven’t seen her. Admittedly, I did stop talking to her for a bit under a month due to not seeing her after a month of talking but then I reached out and we started talking again. And we have been talking almost everyday since. I definitely have been texting other girls here and there just so I don’t get completely attached as I have a tendency to fixate on one without being together. I do like this girl and don’t want to cut her off but it’s been awhile and I haven’t seen her. We even started listing things we should do this summer awhile ago so she knows I am interested in planning a date to take her on. I asked her about seeing her because 3 months without meeting is crazy to me and she said that we just have such great conversations over text that she doesn’t even think about having to set up something to we can chill which I found kind of odd but I brushed it off at the time after she said we would see each other after her midterms for school passed. We definitely do have good conversations and know quite a bit about each other and she’s never dry when I go to start a conversation. Seen a few other posts on here that said that three months without meeting someone is kind of a waste of your time so honestly I’d rather just cut my losses now rather than be even more disappointed later. She also works so I know she has a bit of a busy schedule but if she was interested she’d make time right? What do y’all think?

2023.03.20 19:37 Sanu_DZ "Wrong game" Finaly an official response from IVT (Edit: Text is improved and a lot of new infos are added)

Introduction:
First of all, am not gonna waste your time with my story and who I’m, and what I thought this thing is about when the first time I saw it. But, I will just go straightly to the main point then start from there.
A few days ago, I was looking at reddit’s community of The Crew 2, and suddenly something very strange and unusual just caught my attention.
I discovered a shocking secret message hidden in the random tips bar of PVP.
https://preview.redd.it/g53tf0oxlxoa1.jpg?width=1030&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=541e93392b9f6d685b86cbe7b22fcead5c61c8a3
What you’re basically seeing here is a memorable quote from the famous Assassin Creed series. Following that quote there’s a secret message saying that this is a “Wrong game”. This means this is not only a random quote that’s been shared in there for no reason but also a secret message from the IvoryTower’s employers. This is also an official response from them to my recent critisism.
Furthermore, this secret message actually confirms something that I recognized of them and this game long time ago, something very consistent with what I know and recognized. More importantly, it’s the ultimate answer of all our major questions and concerns about The Crew 2. And especially these following major questions : “Why The Crew 2 is so different than The Crew 1, Why The Crew 2 and its major features were completely downgraded, Why The Crew 2 is so heavy and restricted and limited to its full potential, and lastly, why Ivory Tower was not taking most of our feedback and suggestions into sérious considerations”.
The reason why in a short simple answer is because the main story behind that quote has been put into practice on The Crew 2, and within its design structure and the multiplayer infrastructure. However, the in-game details on how it’s been put to practice will not be presented to you in this topic,but because this topic require another constructive and separate post to adress them properly. But, you will still be able to learn the main basic ideas of that secret message when it will be briefly sumarized in my Q&A, and my response to IVT.
How did I knew that was actually a secret message and an official response to my recent critisism:
I arrived to that conlusion mainly because of these four following reasons :
First, The message appeared in PVP and exactly after my recent criticism about PVP. (The link of my criticism is lost in this forums due to the complete overhal and redesign of its structure. So I cannot provide you the evidence, but what basicly this is all about is basicly criticising IVT about the lack of freedom in TC2, and all related).
Second, the quote talks about the freedom and that is main goal of The Assassins.
Third, the quote was a selective part of a complete Assassin Creed quote, and nothing else besides that part was quoted.
Lastly, It’s very consistent with what I know and recognized from The Crew 2, and that is the dominance through order and control. Which is basically the main goal of The Templars (The enemies of The Assassins).
Moreover, even if I’m wrong and this is not true, or if the message never appeared, my main topic today will still be completely true and on point. But I’m simply using their secret message (or whatever you call it) as my primary evidence to bring this topic through this direction, and use it effectively to prove my points. The other way of proving my points is by providing the in-game details and use them as my primary evidence, but it would be a lot difficult than proving them in this way, so I went with other way instead.
What does this secret message and offical response is stating:
The specific quote in that secret message is talking about freedom, this mean no one should have control over anyone or anything, you're free to do whatever you like, at anytime you want. Next to that, the statement next to that quote is rejecting that idea, it’s rejecting that freedom because it’s clearly stating that this is the “wrong game”, meaning this is not the right game for freedom, and also it will never be about freedom. However, the freedom that’s being rejected here, is not the freedom that was derived from this stupid non linear story of TC2, the freedom of driving and exploration, and the freedom of conquering the air, the land and the sea of the united state. No, It’s a freedom of game accessibilities, game features, flexibility, design structure, and the multiplayer infrastructure.
Why and how this secret message is the ultimate answer of all our major questions and concerns about The Crew 2:
Think about it as this way: The community wants freedom. This freedom is basicly the flexibility and the creative abilities of the game, it’s the main thing that makes this game so great and successful.
Next to that, the developers already offered you this creative freedom in The Crew 1, it was even wider and extent in that game. Moreover, It’s exactly what IVT was stating in that quote “Everything is permitted”, that’s because of the fact that you can do whatever you like at anytime you want. For example, you can play with your friends in private lobby and do CVC anytime you want, you can have full access to all the events in PVP and all the racing famillies anytime you want, you can turn on/off traffic and collisions in pvp anytime you want, you can search for lobbies and do anything else (play other events or play summit for ex) anytime you want, you can have full access to the open world and have full freedom while the pvp matchmaking is in progress, you can spectate in pvp and watch other players racing anytime you want, you can have full access to the roster and invites/add friends anytime and anywhere you want (invite friends in PVP or while driving for ex), you can have full access to the user interface from a mobile phone anywhere and anytime you want, you can fast travel anywhere and anytime you want, you can buy performance parts from tuner shops anytime you want, you can create content with the race creator anytime you want, and many many more freedom.
All these accessibilities and features are basically freedom. They are the flexibility. They are the huge potential of the game. They are the creative abilities of the game. And they simply gives the players the ability to control their own gameplay experiences to have an optimal and enjoyable gaming experience, and ultimately they gives them the sense of having the full freedom without being limited or controled by anything, like the control inside out the crew 2 pvp terrible user experience.
Well, Unfortunately, not with the game that we are dealing with today, absolutly not when the developers have turned into templars within their business in The Crew 2 and after being a nice friendly assassins.
The developers have realised that The Crew 1 got stolen from their hands and got dominated and fully owned by the first community and the players had so many opportunities of having control over their game, and that’s because of the extent freedom they gave them. It simply appeared to them that The Crew 1 was basically a photoshop, the entire game was hugely flexible and everything was permitted. So what they actually did is basically creating a new plans and adopting another strategy, and that is basically the dominance and control. They start establishing dominance and control everywhere in the game, by taking away that freedom from the community, by removing its flexibility, by removing the opportinities that provides the players the ability of dominating and taking control over their game, and eventaly by just killing its huge and valuable potential, by decreasing its creative abilities, by decreasing its huge flexibility, by decreasing its useful accessibilities. And that exactly what’s happening in The Crew 2, that’s why The Crew 2 and its major features were completely downgraded, that’s why The Crew 2 was so heavy and restricted and limited to its potential. And more importantly, that’s what you are complaining about, you are complaining about its huge and valuable potential.
Also, this new dominance based strategy that they’re adopting on The Crew 2, is apparently the main reason why most of our feedback and sugesstions were being secretly rejected. Because any feedback or anything that was demanding the freedom and the flexibility for the game, or in other words, the feedback that was going against that new dominance based strategy, was never been accepted or sériously taken into consideration. And still today being rejected and for the same exact reason.
For instance, like Akorr’s feedback and his expectations that he shared in youtube long time ago (check in this link) https://youtu.be/A-LuHrjJOik?t=899 (@Minute 14:59) When he was requesting more freedom and flexibilty for PVP, all his requests were being secretly rejected, and the same thing happened to my feedback. I did the same thing here in this forums, and way before the release of PVP, I requested more freedom for PVP and for many aspects of the game, and it were all been secretly rejected.
Not only my feedback or akorr’s feedback, but most of the community feedback, from both TC1 and TC2. All the feedback that was going in the opposite direction of their new plans and that new dominance based strategy was secretly being rejected, and still today being rejected and for the same exact reason. However, this does not mean IVT don’t listen to the communities and their feedback, they do listen in-fact-they know every detail about the community and their requests but they simply don’t want to accept anthing that goes against their new bussiness strategy and plans. They also like to fully understand and analyse their repeated responses and constructive feedback precisely.
What IvoryTower did offer to the community after taking away that freedom:
I will leave this question to Mr Stephan Janskowski (One of the producers of The Crew 2). Check this video here and listen carefully to what he says. (@Minute 1:08) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oanozhx_Ptc&feature=youtu.be&t=68
That’s it ladies and gentlemen, he concluded almost everything I’ve said earlier in this topic.
He's explicitly stating that he is offering you a new toys and new freedom as a complete and permanent substitute of The Crew 1 freedom. He took away the freedom that you wanted and that was already in The Crew 1, and gave you the freedom of driving and exploration, and conquering the air, the land, and the sea of the united state. Not to mention, the newly given conquest toys he justly said (Planes and boats, and instant vehicle swapping features).
Let me put this in a short story to understand better what’s going on. Basically it is like this. Stephan and his team discussed together and said to them, “Look, we gave a lot of freedom in The Crew 1 and as a result of that, the game got taken from our hands and got dominated and fully owned by the community. So what we should do and what the possible solutions to offer the players a good subtitute for their losts, if we take that freedom away from them. A developer came up with his instant vehicle swapping concept and said, “Look we should give them planes and boats and this cool new feature (the instant vehicle swapping feature, and we let them have full freedom and exploring the huge world and dominate the air, the land, and the sea of the united state as a complete new freedom”. Stephan said: Ok fair enough, we give them that as a new freedom then we take the advantage of that opportunity to establish a great degree of technical dominance and strict control over the game and then at the same time prevent them from stealing it from our hands.
So what they basicly did is that they took all the accessibilities of the first game that I mentioned before (accessible roster, accessible UI, accessible events, accessible open world … etc), and gave you the accessibility of the open world and the game content (accessible buildings, accessible roof tops, accessible rivers, skies, seas…etc). Then they took all the important and usefull features that were available in the first game, and basicly gave you the instant vehicle swapping feature along with some other features that you never asked for (Lootboxes, video editor, variable loot system…etc). So in other words, they closed all the open doors of The Crew 1. Took all the doors that were originally closed from The Crew 1 and opened them in The Crew 2. And they added some additional useless doors that you never actually requested and that’s it, that’s whole point of that concept and that direction. It basicly came from the idea that The Crew 1 freedom must be removed somehow, and replaced by another less or equal freedom in order to compenstate between the two games. And more importantly, in order to dominate The Crew 2 and to prevent the players from stealing it from the devs’s hands and controlling it, and also to keep retaining a direct, an unlimited, an absolute and comprehensive ownership and leadership over The Crew 2 indefinitely, while we the players keep owning america and dominating the air, the land, and the sea of the united state.
They basicly went against more than twelve million players that they were simply wanting to bring The Crew 1 to the next level and gets more out of its potential, only because they wanted to say to them this is our own game and nobody can touch it.
Or in other words, this is our own ground and nobody can dance. *facepalm* (-‸ლ)
But the problem is, that is not the freedom that the players wanted, the players never asked for planes and boats and that kind of stufs. The players wanted to bring The Crew 1 freedom to The Crew 2 and expend it a little further. But, since that freedom is clearly what the developers were troubling with in the first game, also what they were frightened of. They went fully against their community and the players wishes. And that’s exaclty why they made The Crew 2 as their own game and not the community game.
One last thing I would like to mention, The developers basicaly gave you a new freedom and wants you to go and explore the world, but the problem is, They did not even give you the incentive to do that. Like For example: landmarks, data station, hidden vehicules, map uncovering, acheivements and awards... These are the most valuable features of The Crew 1. They completely dismised all of that, yet they still want you to go and explore the world. Someone would say “But they gave us Photo ops”, Yes but these Photo ops never felt like a real incentive of exploration, because they are just basic events that ppl use them to gain more money and more followers. The first thing the players start to do in this game is they went straitghtly finding bugs and exploits in order to gain more followers, because that what the game always motivate you to do at the start, the whole story is about grinding followers. But in the other hand, the first thing that The Crew 1 motivates you to do is finding data stations to uncover the map, and at the same time unlock acheivements and awards, and discover landmarks and hidden vehicles.
Why IVT is sharing that secret message in public?
I don’t know exactly why they are sharing that message in public or why they are exposing their business infront of everyone who play PVP, but I’am pretty sure they though nobody would notice or care about finding the truth of that secret message, because they actually made it look like a mistake or a joke, they also didn’t reveal it directly in PVP, they actually hide it in the random tips bar. But they are correct, although the message is very clear and understandable, no one have actually noticed or cared so far. But not with somebody whos well familiar with their games and their business in the first game. I did notice, and understood exactly what they were attempting to state from that message.
Why am making this topic and what’s my main goals behind it:
Well, definitly not to expose IVT or because am a hater, maybe there’s some ppl here that thinks that am a hater and they are basing their judgement on my offensive actions in this community, but that’s not because of hate. That’s because of my frustrations and disappoitments of this game, and that’s completely natural, ppl always complain about these issues in the forums.
I’m not a blind hater and I never been so, in fact am a big fan of The Crew franchise and I always give it my love and my support, and so far this is my biggest useful feedback post I’ve ever gave to IVT. And of course this feedback gonna contain many bad offensive words, of course am gonna come up here and say IVT was ignoring the community and was rejecting our feedback, but let’s be fair and objective. The Crew 2 was it been mostly based on the community feedback or it was been mostly based on the developers ideas? Your feedback from The Crew 1 was it extensively been employed in The Crew 2, or only a few percentage of it was been employed? Most of it was been rejected right? And that’s why The Crew 2 was completely different than The Crew 1, and was not a continuous sequel of The Crew 1. So these statements they are completely valid and on point, am not giving you lies or speculations, or some random, or pointless thoughts. Am simply giving you my honest and my evidential feedback, my analysis, my final conclusions of this game. Next to that, my main goal from this topic is as following: Firstly, to inform you about what’s ‘truly’ going on with The Crew 2. And secondly, to bring back this game to its original form and full potential, and reverse it back to its original direction. And more importantly, to bring back our stolen freedom that has been taken away by the templars.
My response to that message :
Thank you for your confirmation and honest response Mr Templar (IVT), Without your confirmation and response this wouldn't be possible for me to make this topic and bring it in this direction. So thank you very much, you made it a lot easier for me. I’m calling you mr Templar because your goals are the same as their goals which are the dominance through order and control.
Let me first begin by asking you a very important question, and it is as following: ‘’Why you could never inform us or at least whisper about that from the beginning? Why you couldn’t stick a message in The Crew 1 PVP and quoted “Nothing is true, everything is permitted. No Wait… This is only a ‘Temporary experimental Game’, and not a ‘True Representative’ of The Crew Franchise and its true and definite DNA?”’’
Is it because The Crew 1 was a mistake, or because it was intented to build up your initial player base?
From my perspective, I don’t think that was actually a mistake, because you seems a very well experienced game developer. But even if that was truly a mistake, you still have done a more bigger mistake than that one, and that is The Crew 2.. Do you know why? because your reaction and response to the first game was so extreme in The Crew 2 and you have gone too far with that and maybe without even noticing.
But now obviously, you will come up and say: “Many players are happy with what we are doing in this game, so The Crew 2 was not a failure and we are doing a great job”. That’s definitly not true, that’s a very narrow perspective to obeserved it from. Those players thinks that there’s nothing wrong with this game because they are uncapable enough of recognizing what’s happening around them, they have no idea what’s going on with this game, especially the kiddies. But who knows, maybe they are just getting frustrated in silence and don’t want to bother sharing their frustrations with you.
The problem is, you are turning The Crew 2 into a payback while making it as a sequel, a payback to the extent that you can literally feel the game being mad at you and wracking your brain, you can feel the extreme reaction and your response to dominance and controm of The Crew 1. Seriously, I’ve never seen in my entire life a video game that is so heavy and restricted the same way as The Crew 2 is designed. Especially when it comes to the accessibility, the user interface and other core features like PVP, you absolutely nailed that one. The numbers of restrictions and downgrades are totally insane, It’s absolutely ridiculous. No flexibility, no freedom, even the player’s comfort got dismised.
More problems, despite all the criticism and the feedback that you received from the players and the reviewers. You still want to blindly reject all of that and keep insisting on using the same strategy that you adopted with The Crew 2, even though it was exactly behind its failure and the players' disappointments. And that was very clear from your message (Wrong game).
I understand that The Crew 1 was taken away from your hands by the community due to the extent freedom that you gave them, but let’s be very clear, wasn’t that the key reason behind its success? Wasn’t that the key reason why The Crew 1 so great and successful? Wasn’t that the key reason why The Crew 1 had more than twelve millions players? Wasn’t that all what they were expecting you to do in The Crew 2? Wasn’t that all what they want wanted? They wanted the freedom right ? Not the planes and the boats that you literally call freedom after your dominance, Mr Templar (Stephan) right? Just look around now and see, how the community is responding to The Crew 2? What they are saying about this game? Are they saying this is the game that we were expecting? Are they satisfied? It’s the opposite right ? So why you are going against your community then? Why not stick to the things that everyone love and appreciate then? Is it because owning and dominating the game is more important to you than simply giving away the freedom? Is it because the dominance is a lot easier for you than giving away the freedom? (Well… If that’s the case, then just go and give your condoleses to The Crew franchise man, because that’s what you are basically doing, you are simply killing it).
The dominance has gone too far Mr Templar (IVT), I think it’s about time you reconsider and revisit your plans and strategy.
And always remember, the huge success that was behind The Crew 1 was because of the freedom that you offered it, and the big failure that was behind The Crew 2 was because the dominance and the control that you established.
It’s all very clear and self-evident, you don’t need anyone else or me to inform you about that.

Bonus image 1: A slightly different theme than the one IVT used for their response, but doesn’t really matter, because they are both very similar and self-explanatory.

Bonus image 2: This is an only optional image, I wanted to share with you because it shows something interesting.
In The Crew 1, this easter egg was a happy welcoming face, but in The Crew 2 it got changed to an Assassin Creed logo. So this could be a sign of their dominance.
It really makes sense, because when you play the first game you really feel happy and welcomed in that game, you really feel like this is your own home because everything is offered to you a silverplate, everything is permitted. But in the other side, all what you get from The Crew 2 is just frustrations and disapointments, the game just keep getting mad at you and you wont stop getting disappointed. And at the end, you simply feel unhappy and unwelcomed.

Bonus Image 3: An exclusive preview on how The Crew 2 PVP should be design. This is how The Crew 2 PVP should look like if we use the same design structure of The Crew 1 PVP.
Personally I find this the best PVP Design in any racing game, there’s no racing game in the world that can offer you a huge collection of events and let you chose from it whatever event you like, anytime you want without limiting you into four or five events per race like the crew 2 pvp and other racing games. You see this is the creative freedom I like to have in racing games, the events collection is huge and variant and you can choose whatever event you like at anytime you want, for example, I like to choose only the events that suite my personnel preference and driving skills anytime I want, like that I can have my full freedom of choice in PVP. I also like to toggle traffic and collusion options as they are free to use anytime I want. And the best of all I’m free to go anywhere else and play whatever game I like to play and not being forcedly staring at that quote that always tells me you’re not free in this game and you’re in a wrong game. Seriously you will never find any racing game that gives you so much creative freedom in PVP inside a racing game never, all racing games gives you a limited choices and doesn’t allow to control your own gameplay experiences.
In my humble opinion all game companies are frightened of giving away the freedom and all of them like to strictly control their own games because people are able to control their games using freedom also, but in my opinion freedom is just fun for us and everybody, why would you limits and control my choices in PVP just to tell me this is not your own game that you bought from us, but this is only our own game and nobody can touch it, or this is a wrong game as you said, and we have also the direct, the unlimited, the absolute and comprehensive ownership and leadership over it indefinitely, so you can never own it definitely.
Do you know what they tell you my friends? they tell you wait for the daily rotations so you can play the events you like and not let you chose any event you like anytime you want. They tell you make for us community pvp playlists so we can share them for PVP, and you give them that?! and you want them to fix and improve the pvp for you?! LOol

Bonus image 5: This is a steve jobs’ quote modified exactly by me to importantly understand why this masterpiece is truly a masterpiece that benefit you. This is for you only IVT, solely big money my friend, biiiiig big money.
This is the first starting game officially made carefully with care and love and deep passion. The first game that fully made with deeply loving hearts the game developers. Finaly and additionnely, I want to say that I’m not gonna fall again in this massive trap that trapped me in the year two thousands and eighteen where the game has released as a deadly massive trap for all buyers and those who trusted you in the first game, the first game lovers who deeply knows what to expect from a first continuous sequel professionally and carefully designed with patience and passion and deep love. But not at all with The Crew 2 not at all, and not again with the third game, not again with The Crew Motorfest, because it’s not what we expected from you IVT. This is no more buyings from me till I completely recognize what I want to buy from you IVT.
Anyway, here’s the full quote: “The only way to do a great work is to love what you do, is to get deeply deeply deeply involved with what you do and do it closely and fully with heart, love, and passion, not with dominance, and control, ignorance, and hatred, and the eager desire to accumulate enormous material wealth from this colorful, flashy, eye catching, eye filling loveable, beautiful racing game.”
Verdict, this is clearly and evidently how you care about this lovely racing game and this is most importantly how and all what we wanted from it. But this is also my all most favorite racing game that i love so heavily and that i want for myself and for all the game lovers and crewers and that's it, this is all what i want to say.

2023.03.20 19:37 Key_Entertainer_265 Need some advice from women. My (M25) girlfriend (21F) are in a rough spot.

So to start my girlfriend and I have been living together in the same apartment for about 4 months. This is the most serious relationship the two of us have been in.
I'm going to be moving for my career in a month. This was decided a month ago and I had asked my girlfriend to come with me. Things seemed really good. At the time she was working for a daycare, but told them 2 months in advance about the move resulting in her getting fired, to which I told her she shouldn't have let them know so soon (she was trying to be nice and inform them). I'm the primary financially stable one in the relationship.
Anyways, I love her, and she loves me. Although I like to take things slower than her even though I know moving together is very sudden. She wants to move very quickly talking about marriage and kids within the next couple of years. I didn't think this to be much of a problem until we've been getting into more political arguments. We've had these discussions before, but it seems that as things have gotten more serious, the differences in beliefs and values are causing more and more issues. She's liberal and I'm conservative. She also lacks some responsibility, which can be frustrating sometimes. I make the money, get most of the meals, and am primarily the one who cleans up around the apartment. She also doesn't have a car so I'm responsible for her mode of transportation. So there's some things there too.
Continuing on, I was always under the impression that despite political differences, you could make relationships work as long as there is mutual respect for the other, but there's a lot that we don't agree on. I'm really concerned that if we get married and have kids, we're going to be fighting over the values and beliefs that we end up teaching our kids. It's going to be a constant struggle of who's going to listen to who and I don't want that. She seems to believe that we shouldn't worry about it and we'll just figure it out when it comes to that, but I don't think that's the best idea.
I tried to have a conversation last night with her. I was trying to raise my concerns about the future and how if we go through with this it may result in a lot of heartache and arguments. I had somewhat came to the conclusion in my mind that it might be best for us to part ways, but I'm also conflicted because I really do love her. She was relentlessly emotional during the end of the conversation. Talking about how she was willing to uproot her life for me, brought her to meet her family and even got fired from work, although if she hadn't given them the really early notice, she would still be working there.
I was on the verge of saying that we should just end it, but her emotional side got the best of me and I couldn't go through with it. I feel responsible for a lot of what's happened, which I am to a degree. But now after that conversation I just feel like I'm tormenting her, which is never what I wanted to begin with. I know I need to be upfront, but I also feel like I need to try and make things work even though I have a feeling it probably won't. I just don't know how to navigate this situation since this is kind of the first time I've been in it.

2023.03.20 19:36 Usual_Celebration383 I F23 went through my boyfriends M25 phone on St. Patricks Day, and found material that turned my stomach. What do I do going forth and am I wrong to be as hurt as I am?

My boyfriend and I have been together going on 10 years come November, we also just officially signed the lease for our first apartment together and are due to move in on April 15th. This has been the happiest point in my relationship with him in a long while now, he’s been extremely loving and attentive… It felt perfect. There’s multiple layers to this story, so try to bear with me.
Every year he goes out on St. Patricks Day and every year I ask to come, but he always says it’s a guys thing so I give up. This year though all the guys essentially had their partners there, but I still wasn’t. They all ubered together, but I kept getting told by him if I wanted to come I had to find a ride. I’m a 23 year old female, to be blunt, I’m not crazy comfortable riding in any transportation one on one by myself. His texts to me just screamed that he was obliterated beyond words, which whatever have fun, but then he tells me I probably shouldn’t come because a girl who has caused a plethora of issues in our relationship was there. He went from telling me he didn’t talk to her, to he just said hi, then to he said hi and almost played drinking games with her. The story just kept on changing, which that itself put me on edge. I don’t think he cheated because he was with all his family and friends that I am extremely close to, none of which condone cheating. This situation is what caused me to do the following though later in the night….
I arrived to his house after he got his drinking and partying fix at about 8:30/9:00, somewhere in there. He was all over me trying to get me to be intimate with him, which I kept expressing I wasn’t necessarily into because of his intoxication level. He kept pushing and pushing though, so I gave him a hand job to get him to back off. After he had passed out, I grabbed his phone to see what he’d been doing on there lately as he had been extremely secretive specifically with his tik tok and after the events of the night I was just kind of set off to snoop. I normally wouldn’t do this because I do my best to trust him, but I couldn’t hold back. The tik toks immediately starting flowing of girls showing their boobs, spitting on themselves, dancing half naked, talking about how big the person’s dick was who was viewing the video, faking blowjobs, kissing the camera and moaning, etc. just a bunch of vulgar stuff.
It was over 100 videos of content like this alone, I was disgusted completely. So I went downstairs in his house to sleep for the night, because it was ridiculously late at this point and I was too tired to drive home. The next morning at about 6:30 am, I went back to his room to grab my stuff and go home. He woke up when he heard me come in and asked what happened, I kept trying to push it off that I couldn’t sleep and just wanted to go home now, but he wouldn’t budge till I told him. He denied everything saying he never gets content like that and he didn’t know what I was talking about, then he said he gets it sometimes, then he said lately he gets it recently. The story just kept changing and changing, it hurt more cause I know the algorithm only shows content you consistently view. So I know the excuses he kept making up were just that, excuses. He made me feel like I was wrong for being hurt and that I “humiliated” him by going through his phone, but what about how humiliated I felt seeing all that? I ended up apologizing and taking the blame for everything, but my stomach still feels so sick. Am I crazy for still feeling suspicious and like he’s looking at things behind my back that he shouldn’t be?

2023.03.20 19:36 Sumeet347 Recently, Me (20M) and my Girlfriend(19F) went through a mutual breakup and we are still talking to each other. In fact we had talks about getting back once we deal with our career commitments but day-by-day things are getting more tough between us and it just hurts to carry on with each passing day

Hello there. Need some serious advice for this matter as this is more complex than what it seems like. It's a big read but its definitely worth it so please do read till the end! So here it goes, I was 14 when I started talking to a girl who lived in the same building. Eventually we became best friends and started dating each other. It was a good 6 year relationship between us and i never regret a single moment with her. She was just as happy with me as I was with her. But there were problems in our relationships which were out of our controls.
So here's the first problem which started right from the beginning - Her Parents. I knew Indian parents are strict regarding love and relationships but her parents were on a whole different level. They used to see us talking down and she was not allowed to talk to any boy of her age, and soon they started suspecting me and were putting restrictions on my Gf. She wasn't allowed to go down alone, wasn't allowed to talk to other boys(especially me) , her mobile phone used to be monitored by her parents every night to check on any suspicious activities and she wasn't allowed to be down with friends beyond 10pm. But we tried to figure out solutions to every problems, we used to text in Snapchat(because of its disappearing messages) and we used to meet after college and that's how things were pretty much manageable. Her parents stopped suspecting me as I stopped meeting her in our building( we use to meet daily after college and somedays at my home sneakily). So yeah the parents were a pain in the ass but i always respected them until there were issues which made me lose my respect for them. After a few years, there were fights between her mom and dad at home, since her dad was not supporting the family and wasn't going out with them anywhere. Her mom had to do all the work at home plus take the kids out. In some time, her mom was getting frustrated and wasn't cooking for them properly and leaving my gf with nothing to eat at night. She had to cook herself so she could eat and ask dad for allowances. I gave her some money from my savings so that she could get some college essentials and stuff and i never thought of leaving her alone even though we had to go through so much. But this wasn't all. There were much bigger problems awaiting for us.
So here comes the next problem. In 2020, she contracted an gastrointestinal disease known as GERD which really ruined her lifestyle and health. Due to this, she wasn't able to eat anything outside. Eating anything would cause her stomachaches and vomiting. So I stopped taking her to cafes and restaurants as she wasn't feeling well. On the other hand, her parents were not bothered to take her to doctor. Her mom however took her to some less expensive clinic nearby after tons of request by my gf. But that doc end up gaving some wrong medicines which made her GERD even worse. She used to get Dizzyness and vomit every now and then and we weren't able to go anywhere cause of this. Earlier we used to roam our city after college but after this, whenever i used to take her somewhere, she used to get dizzy and i had to return back home with her. Whenever she needed medicines, her parents used to ignore her and delay it. Slowly slowly this problem became worse, She started losing her hair, her dizzyness became worse, and she was loosing weight quickly. I was deeply worried for her and did my best to do everything i could at such a tough time and i never gave a single thought about leaving her at such a condition. I promised i would stay with her for the whole life no matter what happens. Also, along with this disease, she had a few other medical conditions like Asthama. Post 2020 was tough for us both, but we were still stronger together and let nothing break us.
Fast forward to 2022, comes the main problem which shattered everything between us. She was seeing signs of delayed and missed periods and a decrease in her weight and slight facial hair. She knew something was wrong and wanted to go to doctor for testing but her parents delayed it till the last moment. She used to get cramps everyday and had sleepless nights. We used to meet and talk daily after college and it was worrying me that she had to face so much pain and i couldn't even help her at nights or talk to her because of her parents. We used to be sad and emotional on a daily basis regarding these issues but i was never ready to leave her. After huge cramps in her lower abdomen, she was taken to doctor and found out she got another medical condition but this was serious. She was suffering from Endometriosis( a disease where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, causing pain and/or infertility). This completely shattered me and i was worrying about our future and was getting a lot of trauma. I was just thinking about her the whole day and not able to do anything else) . Life was full of pain but i wanted to be by her side forever no matter what happens. But that's not what she wanted for me. She wanted me to live a life full of happy memories. So one night she came to a conclusion that we should breakup and have a good life in our own ways. She said she'll come back to me after some years once she gets settled with a good job and life. She didnt want me to suffer because of her conditions. She wanted me to be happy and not to cry every night about the problems which were uncontrollable. I was not ready to leave her and told her i'll be by your side forever. She said we can still be friends and talk to each other daily but she gave up on our relationship. We were discussing this for 2-3days and at the end, things weren't working out so i had to do as she said. We broke up :(
It's been a month now and we are talking but what worries me is that her problems are getting far worse. And its breaking me down part by part. Her parents aren't taking her care well which caused her to faint in her classroom twice and she was falling down full unconscious. This made me angry as her parents are not supposed to treat her like this. I was about to face her parents but she told not to as it would make problems even worse. So i stayed calm. Just a few days ago i receive her call in evening. I was worried cause i've never received a call from her in evenings unless its super serious. She said that her mom had a fight with her dad and she packed her clothes and left the house and her dad was in his room drinking alcohol and using curse words. This made me hell worried, i told her to go to your room and lock it and call your mom and tell her to return. After a while her mom returned home with a lawyer. She said she wanted a divorce as she found out her husband cheated on her with another woman. So yeah i was right about them, my girlfriend's parents were toxic. Turns out the mother is not interested to take the kids and the father is a literal idiot who wouldnt be a good parent so idk what to do about this messed up situation. Even after breakup, Things just keep getting worse day by day and its on a serious level now.
Here's an unexpected twist in my story. There's another girl(daughter of my father's friend) who i have been talking to post breakup who is actually been very supportive to me during my tough time. We are not dating though but i feel like she's into me. But i cant love another woman because i want to be loyal to my Ex because we are meant to be together one day. But this new girl has been talking with me every night and trying to comfort my pain and suggesting ideas of watching movies together which really helped me calm down my stress. She's been sharing memes all day and we are besties in Snapchat and i enjoy talking to her because we have a vibe-match. She's even calling me words like 'Babe' and 'Darling' in between our conversations. I think i have went too far with her and if i'm about to refuse her, i would end up making her sad too which i dont want to because she's a good soul and helped me when no one was there for me.
So i need some advice because i cant stop thinking about this the whole damn day. What can i do to help EX who is suffering a serious parent divorce issue and probably none of the parents taking her in custody. I am friends with her and will help her whenever she needs me but what can i do in such a matter? On the other hand, Whether i should wait for her to return which i dont think is much possible now or should i start a new relationship with the girl who's been truly a good friend to me?

2023.03.20 19:36 bumurutu How to Handle Social Scrutiny/Gossip

So I have been extremely tight lipped regarding my WW's EA/PA. The only person I have told is my mother as I needed someone to talk to about everything outside of therapy/counseling. My WW unfortunately told her best friend, who in turn told her husband since he is close friends with AP. She also told her mother. And of course her AP knows. My WW also apparently discussed our marital issues with several other friends (during affair fog so I am sure it was likely harsher and more one sided than I deserve). We found out on Friday evening when out with a large group of friends that at minimum one, possibly two other couples in our friend group know now about her affair. We are not exactly sure how the details came out, but at minimum the one friend that my wife spoke to/argued with for an hour or so that evening knew we were having marital issues and told my wife that it's weird for her to see us out together and being loving/affectionate given everything that has gone on. Also said that she didn't feel comfortable following my wife on SM as it doesn't feel genuine to her.
First off, I really couldn't care less if people are going to judge me. I know I didn't do anything wrong and am not really the type anyways to fret over what people think of me. This friend group that the news will likely spread to are all originally my wife's friends. I am certainly friendly with all of them and get along well, but wouldn't really say I am close with any of them. My worry is more for my WW, as I feel like this is going to be a lot tougher on her than she thinks. Her friend group is very "status" focused and appearance is important with them (think high school cliques). I just hope that the news doesn't spread too much to the point of ostracization. A lot of her friend group have kids at the same school as ours and I would hate for the gossip to travel there where it could affect my children potentially.
Now I realize that this is a potential consequence to my wife's actions. She knows that also and is not shying away from it. She knows she did some terrible and isn't trying to rug sweep her actions nor minimize them, but at the same time despite everything I don't want to see her hurt. At the end of the day there were two people in the room on/after DD that discussed how the affair impacted us and how we were going to proceed. No one else knows what was said between us, what we have discussed with our therapists/counselors, the reason WW was vulnerable to affair (FOO issues and inability to handle work stressors along with FOO stressors along with me not being as accommodating to her needs as normal at the time). None of them get a say regarding if we are choosing to divorce or reconcile, so to me as I said I really don't care what they think. Everyone has issues behind closed doors that you don't hear about so it always comes across to me as extremely hypocritical to judge others when the skeletons in their closet get exposed.
Has anyone in R had to deal with the public perception before and had to attempt to control the narrative? My personal suggestion was to sit down with some of the couples that already know as well as some of our closer friends that don't and have an honest and open discussion about what happened, how we are choosing to deal with it, and offer to answer any questions that they may have. This may be a terrible idea and WW seems to think that letting them gossip is fine. Any advice here would be appreciated as honestly my main concerns are sparing my WW from extra stress as well as my innocent children from any undue hardship.
This community is always so wonderful in giving positive reinforcement and quality advice and I just wanted to thank everyone that has reached out to offer their support during this terrible journey. We have all been brought together by terrible circumstances, for most of us out of our control, but the people in this community don't allow it to corrupt their character or values. Wishing everyone well in their journey moving forward and appreciate any advice or support at this time.
Thank you!

2023.03.20 19:35 bobaparagon 36M - looking for people to voicechat, watch things with or play games!

I'm looking for someone to chat with or voice call with frequently or semi-frequently. Someone chill, open minded and understanding. We could play some PC games, watch anime/shows/movies together or just talk about life. It doesn't even have to be that serious. We can keep it shallow or attempt to go in deep. Don't mind at all if you're shy or awkward since I can also be cringe as fuck. No pressure to continue chatting if we're not connecting or vibing. I won't take it personally and I hope you won't either.
Please include some information about yourself when you message me
Some info about myself that might be relevant:

2023.03.20 19:35 cottonmth LIFE QUESTION: Would you prefer having a stable job or continue a business with inconsistent income?

After I graduated from college, I started my own business without knowing anything, but only the stuff I learned in university.
One year passed, and my business was doing okay. I got bored and wanted the thrill of having multiple jobs, which is why I applied in a BPO company and practiced what I learned in college. Again, I got bored and left the job because I feel like I'm not growing anymore. My business was still doing fine, and I was also able to invest more money. I started a new job again, and honestly, I was having soooooo much fun whilst the job load was toxic. Little did I know, I was slowly losing my focus on my business 'til I realized that I had already lost more than 100k php.
Fast forward, I resigned and focused on my business again. I applied everything that I've learned from working in the human resource industry. Was it helpful? VERY. Is it worth risking my business? NO.
I am now managing my business together with my boyfriend. We are earning well, but we all know that business money is business money. That means we can not get any money from the business "yet" until it can stand on its own.
Given the following: + I have to give money to my parents. + I have to pay my bills [because I live alone]. + I need to save money for our wedding. + I pay for my cousin's tuition fee. + I have to pay some business debts [because I had to loan for the business].
As of this time, I haven't saved anything for myself or for my needs because all my money is either on the following.
If you were in my position, are you going to find a stable job again or just wait for the business to grow?
I feel so lost and pressured with my life.

2023.03.20 19:34 Jcwaterfill Newer/returning player looking for tips.

Hey all! Good day to you. My question is this;
What would be the ideal setup for cash in Mega-Survival?
Is it building an ever growing carrot farm? Perhaps building an intricate and extensive series of mob grinders to let others use and sell to your chest shops?
Just curious to see what more experienced players have encountered over their playtime.
As always, tips, advice, and free knowledge are greatly appreciated. May we all prosper together <3

2023.03.20 19:34 bobaparagon 36M - looking for people to voice [chat], watch things with or play games!

I'm looking for someone to chat with or voice call with frequently or semi-frequently. Someone chill, open minded and understanding. We could play some PC games, watch anime/shows/movies together or just talk about life. It doesn't even have to be that serious. We can keep it shallow or attempt to go in deep. Don't mind at all if you're shy or awkward since I can also be cringe as fuck. No pressure to continue chatting if we're not connecting or vibing. I won't take it personally and I hope you won't either.
Please include some information about yourself when you message me
Some info about myself that might be relevant:

2023.03.20 19:34 RetroController Best drop in and out content for me and my friends?

My buddies and I have started playing 76 and we are really enjoying it. However, we often get further than eachother on main quests. Is there something like ESOs dungeons or SWTORs flash points that we can do together?

2023.03.20 19:34 Little_coo_bird Me F32, M35 told me he doesn’t think I’m attractive anymore because of weight, I’m very hurt.

We’re together for about 4 years, living together for about 3 years. We were both in normal body shape when we met but the Corona lockdowns did their jobs and we gained a lot of weight together… about 20-15kg each and we never really put an effort to lose them because of life reasons. Now after all this time together I started raising the wedding question and for the first time ever he tells me he won’t merry me unless we both start to get in shape and eat healthier. After some consulting with my therapist I agreed to do it in one condition- that he thinks I’m beautiful no matter what. He couldn’t, he said he’s not attracted to me for a long time but still loves me very much and wishing us to get merry once we lose the access kgs and manage a healthy lifestyle… I mean I was ok with the drastic but positive change in life but I can’t shake the thought my partner not finding me attractive. I’m very hurt. Do you think staying together and trying to move past this is the right thing to do?

2023.03.20 19:33 PRlosg4 AITA for not letting my wife drive my car?

My wife and I have been together since we were teens, we grew up in a strict religious community and we were just two teens we went ''are you hearing this non sense'' and found each other. We went through a lot and I love her with all my heart.
But she can't drive to save her own life, in fact she has totaled all 3 of my cars and 1 of her dad.
The first one was a 95 Eclipse that I loved because of the first fast and the furious. One day after a baseball game I had I let her drive it home, as I kinda fall asleep after eating, she goes off and crashes right into a pole waking me up to the air bag rocking my head. She hurt herself pretty bad.
2 time was after my eclipse, I had a corolla that was pretty old(1986) but it was in perfect condition. She literally, while changing songs on her phone, while it was raining, went off the road unto a ditch and the car had to be pulled out with like a crane and everything.
...third time happened this new years eve, she went to get her nails done in the morning, her hair and coming out she, once again crashed it into a pole at the mall.
i refuse to be a further supplier of vehicles lol, look I drive a more expensive car now and my wife and I are just 25....We can't keep losing cars and messing up my life over cars.
I do not let her drive now, I pay for uber, all the taxis she wants but my Alfa Romeo isn't going through this carnage. She is mad that I do not let her drive it and says it's sexist...to which I don't think so.

I will feel so happy for their children, cause that dude literally serves so much fucking purpose. Imagine a parent- and we got lots of folks with wives and kids that stay positive daily on the internet- but imagine if this one actually had CHILDREN. This one's got kids and is still checking out the world they live in and striving to do greatness relentlessly! It's crazy!

2023.03.20 19:33 bantha_baby Unconventional Preferences

What are some traits that make you unconventional and go against the grain? Here are some of my preferences: -Minimalism (love the simplicity and the increased freedom to focus on things that truly matter) -Don't care about buying things just to impress others (e.g. big house, fancy car, designer clothes, latest tech, etc.) -Don't want marriage -Don't want children -Not obsessed with getting promoted and climbing the corporate ladder
I know these aren't all unique, revolutionary ideas but it still deviates from the majority of people or what is labeled as “acceptable” in society. My supervisor at work was shocked when I said I didn’t want to become a manager. “But everyone always wants to get promoted!” He was honestly speechless for a while and didn’t really know what else to say after that lol. Also, my boyfriend and I have been together for 10 years, and we’ll constantly get asked when we’re getting married and having kids. His mom also asks us how we can possibly live in that “dinky little place” for the rest of our lives. Meanwhile, she’s drowning in debt after buying things just because everyone else has them. Personally, debt stresses me out. I have no idea how people willingly go into it to purchase things they don’t need. I don't particularly want to draw attention to myself, but whenever anyone asks me about these things, I'm not afraid to be upfront about it.

2023.03.20 19:33 cascaseno [Cut content] Gorlek Mines "Search for Grol" removed quest plot. (Pretty interesting. Complete with dialogs, explanations and stuff never seen before).

[Cut content] Gorlek Mines
After some weeks of research, we've managed to recover the full plot of the "Search for Grol" quest. This quest was deleted, and would have taken place in the Gorlek Mines, a cut area that was going to be located under Windswept Wastes. This area was shown in one of the WOTW game trailers.
For those who don't know, Grol is the name of Grom's brother.
At left, Grol's map icon. This design is used in some quest icon designs too. At right, an icon from one cut achievement, presummably related to Grol in its corrupted state.
This quest would have started the first time that we talked with a specific miner NPC on the mines Living Quarters. Luckily, some metadata from this scene was still referenced in the quest node, and this allowed us to get the name, area, position and size of this living quarters.
This is the location of the miners Living Quarters in the Gorlek Mines map.
Gorlek Mines exactly positioned in the world map with the miners Living Quarters and its backgroung hightlighted. (Based on real in-game data, no assumptions).
The mines seem to be internally divided in 3 areas. A, B and C. The Living Quarters would have been located in the C area.

PART ONE
1) You enter the mines and encounter this Gorlek Miner in the Living Quarters. You talk with him for the first time and he tells you the following.
- minerFirstEncounter
A spirit down here? We weren't expecting visitors. It is hard for us here, without our leaders. First #Grom# left in search of a better home, then his brother #Grol# went to the #Deep Mines#... Should you find #Grom# out there, tell him his people still need him! I would join you, but there are sick Gorlek to care for.
1.1) If you retalk with the miner after this first interaction, he says:
- minerFirstEncounterRetalk
Beware if you explore the depths. #Grol# was one of our strongest warriors. He never returned.
1.2) This has started the quest "Search for Grol". Now you follow the Gorlek Miner instructions and go tell Grom that his people still needs him and also talk about Grol.
- searchForGrolDescriptionA
Rumor in the #Gorlek Mines# is that #Grol# is still alive. Go tell #Grom# the good news about his brother.

PART TWO
2) After talking with the Gorlek Miner, we have to go to the glades and tell Grom that its people needhim, and that Grol is alive.
- gromSearchForGrolA
What's this, now? Word from the mines? #Grol# is missing!? Someone's gotta find him! How about you? You seem to know your way around a tunnel. As for the rest of the Gorlek, tell them to join me here! That's what these #Glades# are for!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9DkxaPy1ag (Credits: Wojtuś)
2.1) Now the quest updates, and you need to go back to the mines to convince the Gorlek Miners in the living quarters to go to the Glades with Grom.
- searchForGrolDescriptionB
Grom calls his people to the #Wellspring Glades#. Go convince the Gorlek miners to join him above ground.

PART THREE
3) Now that you have talked with Grom, you head to the mines again, and talk with the Gorlek Miner.
- minerSecondEncounter
#Grom's# found a new home? I must tend to the sick first, but we will go, soon. And Grom's asked you to find his #brother#? He must trust you very much. We will trust you too. Here, the key to the #Deep Mines#.
3.1) This opened the way to the Deep Mines, a dangerous section of the Gorlek Mines that was not accesible and where Grol was last seen (Grol's Plunge). If you retalk with the miner after this second interaction, the miner says:
- minerSecondEncounterRetalk
Careful down there. You just might find what you're looking for. Hmm? Oh nothing. Just an old Gorlek saying.
3.2) The quest updates. Now the entrance to the Deep Mines is open.
- searchForGrolDescriptionC
The Gorlek miners have opened the entrance to the deepest mines where #Grol# was last seen: #Grol's Plunge#.

PART FOUR
4) You must now go down to the Deep Mines, find Grol's Plunge, fight with "Grol the Mad" (that's the name of the fight), and somehow free him from the Crystal Fever / corruption.
THIS IS NOT CONFIRMED but some people believe that this official Concept Art belongs to this fight.
NOT CONFIRMED! - Possible concept art of what many people believe would be Grol in its corrupted Crystal Fever fighting state. Credits of the art: Mikhail Rakhmatullin
4.1) Presumably, after he exists this corrupted state, he gives you a speech / dialog. Sadly, this dialog seems to be lost, so I don't know what he would have said, but we can guess that he says he wants to stay and help the other miners in the mines.
4.2) The quest updates. Now Grol is free of the corruption / crystal fever.
- searchForGrolDescriptionD
#Grol# is now free of the corruption, but he won't abandon his people. Give #Grom# the news.
4.3) If you talk now with the Gorlek Miner in the Living Quarters, he tells you:
- minerThirdEncounter
#Grol# is cured, thanks to you, little one! He's back to his old self, helping us in the mines. He's already talking about rebuilding our village!

PART FIVE
5) To end the quest, you must now go back with Grol's brother, Grom, to tell him the news.
- gromSearchForGrolB
#Grol#, cured!? Why isn't he here with you? He prefers to stay and build there? Always so stubborn, that one. Guess it runs in the family! Har! Here, for your trouble.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5omzbR5CaxM (Credits: Wojtuś)
5.1) Grom gives Ori a Giant Spirit Light Container, worth 1000 spirit light.
5.2) The "Search for Grol" quest ends here.

SPECIAL THANKS
- Thanks to the creators of MelonLoader, UnityExplorer and AssetStudio for creating such amazing tools!

2023.03.20 19:33 anonomouse42 Responding to partner deflection? (25F/56M)

I didn’t want to add both of our ages because I know it’ll likely devolve into useless discussion that is irrelevant to my question, but unfortunately this sub doesn’t give me that option. If that’s the case, I’ll just delete this thread and post it to a more useful sub.
Hoping for some advice on how to respond to deflection.
I (25F) have been seeing a guy (56M) for about two years now. I feel as if I can never get him to be honest with me.
When I ask a question that he doesn’t want to answer honestly, he will reply with “why are you being like this?” or something similarly defensive. And he will refuse to answer my questions saying that he doesn’t need to answer it or that he doesn’t need to be questioned like that.
Now obviously it’s a red flag and I deserve better, but I already know all of this. I’m just really curious how other people would respond to deflection to turn the burden of the question back onto them rather than getting defensive in return? I’m not sure what to say or how to phrase it.
Some examples of questions that trigger this response: He was showing me something on his phone and he opened to messages with this woman I was suspicious about, so I asked what they talk about and if anything is going on between them. I saw Tinder on his phone recently and I asked if he was using it and to tell me more about who he has been talking to. I ask him if he is seeing or sleeping with anyone else.
I don’t think these are unreasonable questions. We are not exclusive anymore so I always preface with that and say that it doesn’t bother me if he’s talking to other women. But he spends a few days with me at my apartment every week and we were sleeping together, so I feel as if I deserve to know the truth.
To be clear, I don’t think this relationship will last much longer, but I’m trying to learn better methods of communication and how to effectively reply to deflection both now and in the future.
Thank you!!
