    It does indeed. @Phrossack, you have 24 hours from now to start the tenth thread or it will pass to Hobbs.

    I am, after a very long hiatus, getting back into the civilization series. I stopped playing it due to not being good but I have better strategies to implement now.

    Yeah I'd guess uncapped resists or too little life. Yugul is a pia boss. My strategy is to face tank him each time he is there and run around when he isn't. AW is a big help.

    Good advice.

    I love the POE discussion! I have been playing for quite some time, but only play melee builds. Lots of good advice has been posted.
    Some best practices to survive with life builds:
    • Get life on all gear
    • Max resists necessary once you hit maps
    • CWDT is an awesome addition to both attack and defense. I use this combo with most builds: CWDT+Immortal call+blood rage+increased duration or a golem or curse.
    • Ancestral protector is good for faster attacks
    • Ancestral warchief for dps
    • Hatred adds great dps
    • Go for 4000 life by maps
    • Aim for +30 or more movespeed
    Melee is very viable and doesn't need expensive gear. I use cleave mostly and can get to level 90 and map tier 13 in each league. In standard my last goals are Shaper, uber Atziri and red map elder.

    IGN in Betrayal: Eight_Gates come join me; If you are not SSF I have gear to give.

    What version? I've been playing a lot of Civ lately too. I'm really looking forward to the new Civ6 X-Pac...it's a nice feeling. :)

    Civ 6. The main thing I learned that I have been ignoring previously is you want specialties with your cities. Or that each city should specialize in something rather than just having all of them do/build a little bit of everything. Knowing this makes a huge difference.

    I put False Swipe to good use and caught a female Meowth (Hardy nature) on Johto Route 38. Effect Spore kicked in and poisoned her before I could get a Spore in, but I managed to catch her with a standard Pokeball before she fainted. I named her Sassy, after my own cat.

    I actually have a spreadsheet of my Pokemon from every game.

    There's a little button that looks like two chain links, highlight whatever text you want as a link, click that button and then paste the URL in the box that appears.

    I bought Thrive on sale. Hope it's good. Looks like the spore creature creator. I hope to have time to start it this weekend.

    To anybody interested in flight sims, i am returning to Flight Simulator (well it is Lockheed Martin Prepar3d indeed) after some time with XPlane 11. As somebody said, XPlane is a good simulator with bad add-ons (well not that bad anymore but still incomplete) while Prepar3d is a bad simulator with amazing add-ons. Which means that while compared to XPlane it sucks in many ways, nothing can beat a good Prepar3d setup with all the proper stuff, at least for flying big iron. To illustrate it, I am currently running Prepar3d along five additionally programs in the background: weather engine, chart display, ATC engine, camera engine and traffic engine plus a number of 3rd party DLL modules running inside Prepar3d, plus a number of quality add-ons as payware planes and sceneries. All put together with blood, sweat and money.

    Problem is I am having fun, which is illegal according to Prepar3d EULA. :nono:
