2021.10.16 12:59 SimbaTheSavage8 Happy 18th Birthday
Today’s the day. Today is when I finally turn 18 years old!
I can feel it in my bones. The last of my youth has finally fallen away from me. I feel wiser, stronger, older. A grown man. It is time.
I race down to the town hall, a smile stretching from ear to ear. Everybody has gathered on the streets, cheering and wishing me a happy birthday. The town hall is decked with balloons and banners, streamers twirling the ornaments and draping down the table.
I sit at the head of the table, the king of my own party. The table is groaning upon plates and plates of food. Crunchy potato chips. Ice cream in a rainbow of flavours. Pizza, the tops oozing with globs of gooey cheese and topped with pepperoni. Even strips of dried jerky, a real delicacy.
The best is the wine, which they say is all for me. The cork pops out as they open the bottle and pour it in a golden goblet we reserve specially for the occasion. It runs down my throat like liquid rubies, and it tastes so fruity and aromatic and delicious.
Then the cake is brought out, a pandan chiffon slathered in snow-white frosting. As the candles are lit up and everybody sings the happy birthday song, a tear slides down my cheek.
It truly is the best birthday ever.
Finally comes the Ritual. The best part. The most important part of any eighteen-year old’s birthday party in this community.
The part everyone has been waiting for. I slip on a white robe, before pouring olive oil on my head. Then I raise my eyes to the heavens and start to pray. I hope that the rest of the food is bountiful and delicious this year.
Then I raise the ceremonial dagger, jewels studding the handle, glittering in the sunlight. And make a deep slash across my throat.
Warm blood trickles downwards and stains my robe, turning it a deep crimson. Feeling woozy from losing so much blood at once, I collapse on the floor. The pool around me is as red as the wine I just drank.
People are cheering, and then there is a clatter of cutlery and a mad dash as everyone fights for my flesh. I know that feeling. I know that hunger. I have been part of the crowd once. Ever since we kids discovered how delicious human flesh is--especially for people 18 years old and above, we have danced and feasted for days.
And we haven’t had an eighteenth birthday for months.
Today though, it is a great honour to feed my fellow brothers and sisters. And that is why today is the best birthday ever!

2021.10.16 12:59 Australian_Tanker Some weird question that no-one can relate because I don't know why I'm fussing over this
Today I bought the BDR G1 B, and then realised that the modifications are very expensive for me XP wise. I only had 6k free XP left after researching it, and decided I would convert some gold into free XP. I took a look at some of my tanks to choose which one I would pinch the combat XP off to convert into free XP, when I noticed something. In the modification research tree for vehicles, there is two amounts of XP listed, Combat Experience and Total Experience. Since I can't make decisions very well I was just looking through every one of my tanks, and noticed that the difference between Combat XP and Total XP is always the same, no matter how much I've used a tank or what type, 6345 XP. I had never converted gold into XP before. Me, being very much not happy with this, seeing the random difference between these two figures, tried to see a reason why this is the way it is. Couldn't really think of any reason at all, or what 'Total Experience' even meant. I started by converting 50 gold into free XP, using Hetzer's combat XP, to see if the difference between the two would change. It did. Now that the difference was made even bigger, I became very sad :(
I know I shouldn't be bothered about this, but I would like someone to explain what 'Total Experience' is and why there is a difference between it and Combat Experience.

2021.10.16 12:59 2345678913 Need 3 wins to reach plat. Any good decks?
Hey guys! I tried to climb to plat but i stucked in gold 1. I used Poppy Zed since that was the deck what i reached this rank with, but it feels inconsistent. Then i tried some Thresh Nasus and Ziggs Taliyah, I really like both decks, but i can't get 3 consecutive wins. So any decks what are not Gp Sej, Discard midrange or decks like that?
