I try not to read youtube/twitchchat comments because humanity is... well Obiwans thoughts on Mos Eisley station come to mind when thinking of those two places in particular.

Luckily for me though I'm an admin on a tf2 group of servers. So in game, I get to ban all those people. And it makes me feel great!

I've seen all but the newest one. And I have not enjoyed any of them

Actually, its a mix, when I wearing something short enough I go down and out. Up and over apart from that, or just sitting down. Sometimes because I'm lazy, other times because honestly, I either have pretty lousy aim, or its just going to go where it does no matter where I point it.

I'm not a woman. I'm a white guy. So grain of salt and all that. But in the search for equality one would think, if you were an advocate, you'd want to go out of your way not to, even if accidentally insult people. In the same way a woman, if she'd been hired might be referred to as just a diversity hire (her professionalism discounted, by internet douchebags). To then refer to two, I'm sure highly professional and personable guys, as another couple of white guys, isn't that just as egregious. You're demeaning their careers just because of their gender and race. Two things you'd like to claim don't matter, and should have no outcome on prospective employment. When it's entirely possible, and I'm quite confident likely didn't in this case.

To ho hum that another white guy got hired. Whats wrong with white guys, nothing makes them a better choice, but nothing makes them worse, it seems a pretty snap, decision and hypocritical argument that anyone, hired on merit isn't going to be as good as anyone else. Why does it matter if they're white guys at all. An opinion, is an opinion, a point of view, a point of view. There is no one 'white guy' line of thought.

Having said that, to attack someone personally is atrocious and the people that have should be ashamed of themselves. If you can't diplomatically and intelligently discuss your thoughts on someone elses opinions. Then don't, go yell at your wall or something. You owe the women in question an apology and the greater GB community for sullying a otherwise fine reputation.

@zomgfruitbunnies: The Pudge courier has the second skin at lvl fifty compendium, so there is still that reason for people to sink money when the courier drops.

I'd be interested to know how big the stack of compendium money Gabe is rolling in is, compared to just a normal days intake from steam.

Good luck V-Bomb. Hope we still get to see your big arms and sultry voice on the podcast and in videos now and then. Now we get to see the best beef though, OG Giant Bomb vs NY Giant Bomb. Ya'll thought the sciences hated each other! YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET!

In all seriousness both sad and happy to see things evolve and change. Hope the newbies fit in well, whomever they are.

'Mums Undies'

I always get a kick out of that one when I see him come onto the tf2 server I'm on.

I can remember puttering around the bend of a river canyon in Farcry 2, and coming head on with a sunset and literally said 'whoa'. Rest of the game wasn't up to that moment, but mang it was pretty as hell for those few seconds.

And I' never played it but watched the ER of it. Persona 4. Nanako. You know the bit. I never thought I'd get any sort of attachment to that character. What with me being dead inside. But by the end. That little scamp.

Sworn and raised my voice against other players and AI, never over game speak though, always just to the empty room I'm in. Especially in dota. After a particularly shit match, all you can do is go for a walk and try not to dwell on it. That shouldn't be as hard as it is though sometimes. Which means I should probably do something to stop taking it as seriously.

@crispy: Yeah I added the slow because it would have to be balanced somehow you'd think. Without numbers I'm talking a huge armour buff... like, really huge. And the ult is me wanting a spy from tf2 type ability. Even though it would be super easy to see through. Could work in pubs though... :D

Maybe change the ulti to free pathing through trees with a heft amount of regen for a period of time. Nope better idea. see below.

Lets have another crack at him. He's now some sort of giant turtle quadruped creature called 'Forest Leviathan'. Although woodguy does have some serious zing to it.

1st skill. Collect trees. hero dashes forward collecting enemy heros and trees in path, silencing enemies hit and knocks them too the side. Trees are stored on heros back. 2 trees at level one, 3, at level 2. 4, at three. 5, at four. Silence lasts 1,2,2,3 seconds.

2nd skill. Collected trees can be launched at enemies stunning and dealing damage.

3rd skill, Passive. whilst carrying trees 'Forest Leviathan' moves quicker (either that or it gives an armour buff), and has a chance to automatically replenish his tree supply as he fires trees. Auto tree supply replenishment by level, 1,1,2,3. (maybe the more trees he has the more armour he gets. Or as he fires trees he gets a short speed boost... or each tree turns into a dog that can fire bees from its mouth)

Ultimate. Forest leviathan is one with the trees, upon activating it he can move unencumbered through trees automatically collecting trees and vastly reducing the cooldown and increasing the effectivness of his other skills.

Yep op, I like it.
