The series should probably be on the video category list now its running at least 12 episodes (and has one of the best intros).

@ghoti221: I stopped using Sony, Microsoft, Paypal and Amazon services. At some point I will stop being lazy and move my gmail. If your reaction to crappy corporate behaviour is meh don't care, why tell us? Corporations only improve their behaviour when people give them or lawmakers enough grief over it, instead of rolling over and inviting them to treat customers like garbage.

Brand protections an all or nothing sort of affair unless you are ready to just abandon it

This is true, unfortunately. If companies don't actively police their intellectual property, it becomes harder to enforce IP protections against potentially more blatant offenders down the line (who can just claim, "well you allowed this before, so why not now?"). So they're incentivized to shut down even relatively benign stuff like this.

That is not true at all. Its depressing that everytime this discussion happens people conflate trademarks with copyright. Trademarks require active enforcement and prior unaddressed infringement weakens them. Copyrights are not weakened in the slightest by prior infringements and enforcement is entirely discretionary.

CBS already has rules for allowing fan films, they are kindof ridiculous and given the ongoing upset they are causing the fanbase I expect they will in time become more flexible. They were also only created with films in mind, and are especially ridiculous for games. http://www.startrek.com/fan-films. Stage 9 likely fell afoul of rule 3.

Long term these companies ought to just be establishing oversight and profit sharing for stuff like this, having lawyers send out C&D is a waste of time and money. Have the lawyers do something useful like drawing up a contract to profit from stuff like this.

I think the content was decent, I enjoyed exploring the new space but I'm basically done with 8.0 already, I'm already back to doing dailies from old expansions as i might as well grind while i grind. It was a good 3 weeks but thats all, I don't think they can wring much more out of a game thats nearly 14 years old, new content is the only interesting thing they can do, throwing in more grind and busywork without even changing up the systems significantly is just not worth talking about and not really worth playing (but I am anyway). Exploring Kul Tiras was pretty great while it was new. Got to ilvl 346 already and meh, not into the mythic+ treadmill.

I made a battle.net group for EU players, this is for all battle.net games. Maybe if enough people join and want faction wars they can spin off WoW Alliance and Horde community groups.

Edit: Well thats no good the blizzard group doesn't let you see what members are playing, guess we need ally/horde groups. Can't really see any use for a battlenet group atm.

Pre-patch is coming next week.

Here's a guide of a few things that are getting removed from the game at this point and will be no longer obtainable.

Just managed to do my mage tower challenge, not too bad at 940 ilvl.

I notice theres a community raid up for July 17th. The pre-patch event and scenario should be available to play at this time so maybe something to consider doing too in the event, or maybe thats what its up for. I guess Rorie is organising? I might try and make a NA character this time to join in.

@renegade1973: As far as I understand it if a website does not pass data to 3rd party advertisers then most places are claiming that the advertisers themselves are the data controllers for what they are doing. The advertising agents in that case are all in breach of GDPR as they are using assumed consent which is specifically invalid. I don't buy that argument as the websites are the ones making your browsing session available to advertisers and any data harvested was supposed to be under their control/protection but thats probably an argument for the courts, in the mean time you are better off reporting the advertisers to the ICO.

That said I do think CBSi's privacy policy falls pathetically and laughably short of GDPR requirements but this is not Giant Bomb's responsibility. This is a failure of a corporate/legal department in their parent corporation, which is way out of their control. https://www.cbsinteractive.com/legal/cbsi/privacy-policy/eu

Unfortunately CBSi hasn't included any contact details and have left it blank which is another violation and the only thing you can really do there is report them for this failure immediately to the ICO.

I've finished original XCOM:EU 2 or 3 times with and without the expansion EW. I don't think the extra systems are as confusing as people are suggesting. You are playing xcom you just need to read a few more things. In XCOM2 war of the chosen makes the campaign easier (especially if you turn off integrate dlc, a real badly communicated option that just eliminates tutorial/intro missions) because it gives you way more options to handle the strategic game and powerful new troops. I've crashed out of XCOM2 vanilla 2-3 times and only ever finished with war of the chosen. I never understood or got a handle on managing avatar progress until I had more options to slow its progress in WotC. The Chosen make things more interesting rather than harder, you've got way more options to deal with them and all their strengths and weaknesses are spelled out on screen and mission timers pause while you fight.
