    DeathscytheX reacted to Strider Hiryu in My Mobile game spending habits have been pretty tame. I'll drop a few dollars on Arkn   
    Interesting, the open world concept sounds fun so I really hope it's implemented well. This new update might actually get me playing a lot more than I currently do (will also mean I'm going to have to step my research game way up to get those anti-siren ships built (curse you Izumo for not being done yet). Really want to get my hands on Azuma). Also look at that Unicorn Oath skin, so fucking adorable. Going to have to start using Uni a lot more so I can oath her (good thing she's my secondary carrier for my RN fleet).
    I was using PVP to level but as I said I just got to bored doing it and I don't need to do it for SR Bulins (I've got those coming out of my ears, don't know what to do with them all). Should really do it more so I can get Eldridge but just can't bring myself to do it unless an event mission requires it.
    Yeah, for some reason the game just likes handing me SE ships left and right (except Nagato, so pissed I didn't get her during her event) but won't give me shit for RN or IB. As I said not complaining as I love the SE ships but I really want to build up a killer IB fleet. I think I'm only missing like 30 or so SE ships (I know I'm missing 10 SR's and have most of the Rares and Normals (missing like 5 normals I think). Not to sure how many epics I'm missing). Most of what I am missing is event only though so it'll be awhile before I get those (most of the Epics I'm missing are chapter related (like Hiryuu and Souryuu, some reason the game decided I didn't deserve them when I was doing the story)).
    Also can I just point out how fucking cute Little Illustrious is. God what a fucking great addition to the game. I also didn't know there was a Little Bel either and after seeing her I must spend all my cubes to get her. Man, Yostar out here playing a dangerous game with these adorable mini version ships (I really want Akagi-chan but gold is becoming a slight issue lately with me increasing level caps and this event (thankfully I got the last event ship I needed today so goodbye cubes, Strider wants his Akagi-chan)).

    I do PvP mostly for the merits to get a SR Bulin as much as I can but it does give Hella experience. Enty and Anaynami are my 2 120 ships. Tashkent and Belfast will be there shortly at 119. All my other used ships are between 114-104. I actually made rear admiral today for the first time. I doubt I'll get admiral of the navy but damn that merit bonus would be nice. I can't compete with 120 Retrofit Warspite in a whole 120 fleet, and Monday everyone will take their joke defense fleets down and 95% of the opponents will have her up. X_X
    Holy crap about your SE ships. I was just happy to get Shoukaku off that daily game for this event. I got Zuikaku the same way a few months ago. I have a ton of RN ships... and as if you couldn't tell, I'm fine with that. I have all the battle maids except Formidable.
    Here is a video of all the new stuff coming.

    Yeah wtf with no Skin for Amagi, I was surprised when I got her. I guess I assumed all meta ships would have at least one skin. If I had to pick, Taihou's and St Louis Qipao are my favorite skins becasue the L2D is so well done. But I'll never really use them in my fleets. I think Belfast is one of my only favorites that have a L2D skin on her but its not as well done. Taihou plays her little mandolin, and St Louis follows your finger on the screen. I hope when they give Amagi a skin, its L2D, but either way I'll buy whatever they bring out for her. I'd also like a good skin for my girl Tashkent. The bondage one didn't do it for me during that event.
    I'm really not that far ahead of you. I think I finished 10-1 last week. I was only inspired to get that far for the 9-4 secretary unlock, and for PR ship XP grind. I think by world 11, you need all 120 ships. I don't have that yet.
    I dunno if its how the game is or just my pull ratio but I have less Sakura and Iron ships than anything and my Eagle Union faction is level 4 in the lab. I finally was able to get the level 2 upgrade for Sakura while Iron Blood is still stuck at 0 for me.
    Enty, Saratoga, and Monarch are my boss fleet backline, and Amagi, Hood, and Illustrious are my mob fleet backline. So as you can see, I don't really have any faction synergy going. I still use Enty because shes my best carrier. I don't have Essex or Formidable (God, i want Formidable so bad, I need that rerun and her swimsuit is an instapurchase and permanent secretary for me. )
    Did you see their going to be adding an open world part to the game tho? Like a major update is coming sometime soon. it looks pretty rad. I'm also super excited about the Helena retrofit.

    And people say I have a mobile game addiction
    I've been pondering buying Enterprise's new skin but since I rarely use her anymore I don't want to drop the gems on it (even if I dropped $30 on the pack they just released (was really hoping for her skin but got Mass's instead)). Since I only have access to three secretaries right now (I'm still on chapter 9-1, I don't honestly throw much time into this anymore outside of events so I stalled on story progression) I don't really throw much money at skins but all I really need is Laffy and her adorable Oath skin to make me happy (well and Akagi in her oath skin though I'm seriously thinking about dropping gems to get her New Year's skin (and Atago's as well since Laffy, Akagi, and Atago are currently my secretaries)).
    What they need to freaking do is get me a skin for Amagi (preferably an oath skin) because she's a staple of my first fleet (flagship in fact) and she's the only one without a skin in the entire fleet. Makes me sad they do my girl wrong like that as she's tied with Akagi for my second favorite ship (nothing will ever beat Laffy out of first, nothing I say).

    I got buzzed on my way home from work from the emergency broadcasting system for a severe thunderstorm warning with 70mph winds and golfball sized hail. vehicle damage expected. Thankfully it was in Mississippi where the radio station is based. We got some super heavy rain though before that, I guess the system intensified when it went over us. That gulf water really supercharges storms if they feed off of it.  I should have snapchatted it today.

    That's some intense winds. 😲 and yes fuck yellow jackets. I forgot to mention them, Hornets and bees. 😖 It was either yellow jackets or ground bees stung the hell out of me and got one of my dogs with a sting to about 3 years ago I think. I sprayed the hell out of the couple holes I saw them coming out of and thought that was the end of it.. nope, 2 days later they were swarming around. We had skunks in the yard a couple nights in a row, turns out they were hunting bees. A big pile of dirt almost 2 feet deep was dug up in a flower bed and what was left of a hive was exposed. I sprayed all those damn things and a couple days later I flushed them with the garden hose and left it running in the hole for hours just to be safe.
    At my house now I've been seeing bumble bees and wasps having death battles. Wtf. I need to buy more wasp spray.

    When its hurricane season we'll always get a tropical storm or depression. They have winds of 20-60mph. The rain would eventually erode your rock formation apart if left unattended between occurrences. Last year we had a pretty good thunderstorm system roll through and it damaged a ton of gas station signs around the city. I'm not sure what people did in the 80s when a hurricane hit TBH. I'd imagine they'd took down all their window units and brought them inside. Interestingly enough you're suppose to leave a few windows cracked open during a hurricane the intense barometric pressure will make buildings swell and contract like a breathing lung. It will shatter windows which is why you see people tape and barricade theirs. its for more than just debris hazards. I remember a few years ago when that hurricane almost made it up the NE coast, it was a big panic on the news because houses up there aren't build to code for hurricanes and the damage would be way worse. Those screws would be fine, but the wood would break apart around it.
    Its pretty amazing that we'll all go to work during a depression or storm, but let an inch of snow fall and the city shuts down. We have no snow plows, no salt trucks, or anything to cope with snow and ice. Its a super rare occurrence. Our drainage systems would easily take care of the melt water though since they're built to withstand several inches of water hourly because of hurricanes and just the generally rainfall we get.
    When I lived in Virginia I remember the gnat clouds that would be in random places outside. We don't have many of those here, but everything else you mentioned we have that on top of everything else. its bugpocalyse most the year. multiple types of ants, hornets, wasps, bees, spiders, crickets, grasshoppers, earwigs, moths, stinkbugs, ticks, dragonflies, mosquitoes, beetles, etc. Daddy long legs are around but they're def not the most prevalent. I'd say orb weavers and the most prevalent in the yards, and outside the house, while wolf spiders are always finding ways to get in. The yellow jackets are what you have to worry about since they like to nest in the ground, if you step on it, its over with. They're super aggressive. Unlike most bees, they don't lose their stinger and will keep stinging you. In fact I believe once they sting you, you're marked so they can keep tracking you down. They're assholes.

    Its amazing how different north is from south. You won't see any window units here, probably haven't seen one since the late 80s. Central air is in every house and apartment complex here. It was 96 degrees here today with brutal humidity. We've been pretty lucky this year since we made it all the way to the last 10 days of May with relatively nice weather in the 70s. AC runs every day 24 hours a day for months here. basically winter season is the only time it wont cut on to maintain temp. I bet window units would be hella expensive on the power bill in this environment.

    That movie was great.
    Mega Python vs Gateroid will always be a favorite of mine just because if this bad fight scene.

    Sharknado 3 was the best one. The rest of those movies were garbage compared to fighting sharks in space.

    Z-Nation was the other one. XD. I really didn't care for Sharknado. It tried too hard to be bad so in the end if wasn't funny bad, or good to me, just mediocre which is the worst thing you can do in my eyes. They went from showing bad movies to trying to make ones and it just didn't do it for me. Mega Piranha will always be the best one they showed. I think that's the one where they had a car chase, and one of the characters was shifting an automatic transmission like it was a manual, and both cars kept changing makes and models in the same scene because I guess it was whatever car they could afford to rent that day of filming. Like the SUV was black and the car was white the whole time but they kept changing between a ford and a Chevy. They put stickers over the model/make decals to try to compensate. But this part will always be legendary:

    I have this tick where I just can't watch any shows that are trying to ride the wave of another show. I remember another friend of mine would always talk about this and like 2 other zombie shows that started running when TWD was hitting its height in popularity. I scoffed at them all.
    This is furthered by the Red Box always having some B movie knock off of whatever is hot. Like when IT Chapter 2 came out, some shitty looking clown movie was in the Red Box. I think it was called Wrinkles the Clown. Even if something is good, I'll just never give it a shot.
    I remember when LOST was in its prime, every season ABC would have some other start up show come on after it, and a commercial for it would play at least during 2 of the breaks. We'd all get together at a friends house every week to watch the new LOST ep and always make snide remarks about how the show was gonna get cancelled and there would be a new one next season, which there was. Eli Stone was the only one I could remember because I think they tried the hardest to make that one successful.

    My parents, especially my mom loves sweet potato fries.  I've never been much of a fan for them myself. I always found sweet potatoes loaded with extra sweet stuff too much for me. I prefer them plain or with a little bit of fa-butter. But that texas roudhouse one.. damn, I would like to try that. Looks like an amazing thanksgiving dinner dessert.
    I used to love baked potatoes cooked in the microwave but I don't do that at all anymore unless its an emergency and the side dish I was making for dinner turned into a disaster.  Baked potatoes actually baked like how I described are far superior. Actually baked for a solid hour at 400 degrees makes the interior far far fluffier and the skin significantly more tasty. I usually put a little ranch dressing on my potato for extra moistness because I'm too interested in eating that potato right out of the oven than letting it sit for a while.  After I cut it open, that potato releasing so much moisture and steam cooling down I have to throw some ranch on there to compensate.
    The best sweet potato recipe ever is the most simple. This is how I make them.. stab them all over with a fork, put them in a crockpot in a single layer, cover the crock pot and set it to high for 3-4 hours, depending on size of the largest potato in there. And thats it, no liquid or anything.. just sweet potatoes inside a crockpot. It ends up acting like a mini oven. Best sweet potatoes ever. Cooking them in the crockpot basically turns them into mashed sweet potatoes inside the skins. Cut it open and its the fluffiest most delicious thing ever.
    I love baked potatoes and sweet potatoes, as long as I don't add any extra stuff to them, they are the most filling, lowest calorie side dish ever. Only 110 calories per potato for regular or sweet. Usually the toppings is more calories than the potato itself. lol. Like adding ranch dressing will put an extra 55 calories per tablespoon, sour cream is only like 30 something, cheese.. depends on the cheese. Calorie wise, almost 3 baked potatoes with sour cream (no cheese) is still less calories than an order of medium fries at fast food places.

    I'll go ahead and put this out there before it gets to that point... sweet potatoes are great. Sweet potato fries and/or tots are a crime against humanity.
    I guess I've always been content with the ole nuclear baked potato in the microwave. The consistency matters not since I have a little bit of potato with my sour cream, salt, and butter. Not really a big fan of baked potatoes to begin with so I guess that's why I eat them like that. Texas Roadhouse makes an divine sweet potato tho.. its pretty much just dessert with marshmallows, brown sugar, and a little caramel drizzle for decoration.

    I follow the Azur Lane twitter just so I know whats coming up so I can make my plans for getting shit done (also in their discord as well, I might have a problem). Hey now just because I introduced you into the game doesn't mean.......well okay maybe it is my fault but dammit Yostar shouldn't make such a damn fun game Meh, I get the noob thing I was like that when I first started playing. Blowing countless cubes in the hopes of better ships, blowing my entire coin fund on shit I don't need, fumbling through shit without understanding a damn thing, and enjoying every minute of it as I mindlessly wasted hours. Ah, what I wouldn't give to have those feeling again. Oh who am I kidding, AL is probably the only game I really enjoy anymore (outside of Arknights occasionally and Girls Frontline). Just don't tell the other mobile games I play, they might get jealous
    Oh yeah Saria definitely got maxed out level wise (nowhere near able to get the resources to promote her) and thrown directly into my party once I got her (I've been trying to get Nearl but since Saria is better overall I'm happy with this). She even helped me get through a stage I was having trouble getting through. Honestly I'm surprised I got the Top Operator tag considering my luck in these types of games. I damn near had a heart attack when I got it the first time and was surprised as all hell this morning when it dropped (granted I had to refresh both times to get it). Then again I have shit luck in headhunts and pulls so maybe that's Yostar's way of saying sorry (though the last pull I did I did get Silence and three Sieges so theirs that).
