In Topic: Eklund: (Haha, I know, but) Toronto/San Jose

Fairness of the deal aside, has Eklund ever been right about anything since the Philly activity? He got Richards to LA, correct? I'm legitimately asking.

Around the trade deadline, for the two week span he's spitting out massive amounts of rumors, I think he winds up being correct one out of every two hundred times. I'd call his success rate in actually predicting something to happen at about a 0.5% range. 

 

I feel firmly that he's a speculator, not a reporter and his sources are scenarios he thinks up that would somewhat make sense. In this case, I could see Thornton for Phaneuf, because in some aspects it does make sense. Was there an actual source to this rumor? No, I think it's just something else he thought up and posted because it draws readers.

Confirmed. PS4 must be sent back to Sony for repairs

The good? They will pay for shipping both ways, so the repair will not cost me anything out of pocket.

The bad? It takes 3-5 business days for the shipping box to get here, then 3-5 back, 7-10 business days for the repairs to be complete, then another 3-5 before it gets back to me. So, a month likely before it's back and working again.

The ugly? Sony will not refund me for the month of Playstation Plus service that I have already pre-paid, while my PlayStation is not working. Though, that fight is still ongoing.

That's too bad, generally Sony consoles have a very low failure rate, but at least they are doing the repairs for free with shipping included.

 

I went through 5 Xbox 360 consoles due to RROD and Open Tray errors, 2 I got entirely free through warranty but the others had to come out of pocket. 

 

They should prorate your Plus service a bit, or give you five bucks in spending credit considering you aren't able to get online with the console they are fixing for you. I'm not sure how they would handle that, Plus used to be a free service and I don't currently own a PS4.


In Topic: LGW Moderator Problems

All in all, considering how few complain about the moderation on this site in comparison to how many lacked the need to even open this thread, I think it's safe to say that things are run pretty fair. It's impossible to please every member of every community on the internet. There are rules, and rules are left to interpretation. People like myself and the other moderation staff here are constantly faced with decisions to determine whether or not something is out of line or not, in violation of the site rules, and feel the need to edit or censor some of the posts here. Even beyond that, predicting when a comment or a thread is headed in a vicious direction before it even reaches that point in efforts to prevent an awful scenario. No site in the history of the existence of the internet has a community 100% in agreement that things are run entirely in perfection, there will always be conflicts, disagreements, and arguments about how forums are run, moderated, and censored. There will always be members that attempt to push the limits and aggressively debate the result when they are told they have gone too far.

 

We are one community of many, are in consistent communication with each other to improve, fine tune, and moderate ourselves on the job we are doing on maintaining a successful discussion forum that appeals to the masses and remains friendly and accessible to hockey fans of all ages. This is one of the best online sports fan sites online for a reason, and there are other options out there if you are displeased with how it is run so badly that it's reached a level of intolerance with you.

 

I trust in Matt, and the rest of the moderation team here to fully enforce the site rules and maintain a great community.

I've been progressing slowly, as I only got it recently and I was out of town this past week, I have a level 22 Titan only so I haven't hit that wall of running out of things to do yet. I'd like to max all 3 classes, and I'd like to see them do what they did with Borderlands 2 and introduce new downloadable character classes at a later date if you wanted to start fresh again. Otherwise, it's going to be a lot of grinding and waiting for new DLC and determining if the content is worth the price of the season pass or individual packs alone. 

 

Knowing what's ahead and about what the game has to offer, i'm going to try and take it slow, although I tend to marathon through these types of games and get very addicted fast.

I am unsure if I should buy Destiny or not, I've heard some mix reviews on it.

This is my take on it. If you are going into it expecting it to be a true console MMO like World of Warcraft, you will likely be disappointed because the content just isn't there.

 

If you approach it like a shooter with RPG elements that has co-op play and competitive multiplayer, I feel like it shines in both areas of the game. to get certain gear and equipment, you must participate in online modes like Strike and Cruicible, which is like mini-raids and online deathmatch/objective based gameplay. Each mode gives you unique rewards and access to things that only those modes offer. 

 

There is a lot to do, a long way to progress up to level 30 if you want to dedicate the time, and it really shines cooperatively. I wouldn't be enjoying it if I was attempting to go at it alone, I don't think Strikes or Raids are really possible to finish single player as they are extremely difficult as it is doing them cooperatively, but you at least have the team mates to revive you and continue the battle. 

 

I would say go for it, because I like it a lot personally, and I think a lot of the negative reviews from people come from those who thought it was going to be a lot more and larger than what it turned out to be.
