13 Cosplay Experts Tell Their 3 Favorite Cosplay Character`s

Everyone knows that great feeling of choosing and making their next Cosplay character costume, are you looking for ideas or inspiration?

Sometimes I think how great it would be if I had a special power to know all someones favorite Cosplay characters beyond the one they are wearing at the time. Well the second best thing is to just ask!

Next time you are at a event I encourage you to ask your fellow Cosplayer for their favorite 3 characters to play. There is always more than one and it is a great conversation starter for exploring and fulfilling curiosity maybe even getting some more ideas for yourself.

Well I asked 13 of my favorite Cosplayers who their 3 most favorite Cosplay characters are.What they told me went beyond face value uncovering more than a love of dressing up and ideas for looking fantastic only. That one character is just the tip of the iceberg. All their replies are given below:

Tom loves D.Va, Stormtrooper, Harley Quinn

It also shows the strength of community

Tom wants to bring Cosplay to the masses by educating on how to modify everyday off the shelf costumes into the rare Cosplay characters using just modifications.

"My top 3 are:

D.Va: D.Va has so my varieties to pick, from bodysuit that's as accessible a costume as you can find, to gremlin D.Va who loves Doritos and Mountain Dew, to the intricate Hanbok traditional Korean dress, to the mech suit taped together from cardboard boxes.

Stormtrooper: Stormtroopers are the OGs of cosplay. The humble Stormtrooper shows the depth of cosplay, where you can go from an off-the-shelf costume and still look good, to getting down and dirty with accuracy to screen and lore. It also shows the strength of community, seeing huge battalions of Stormtroopers enjoy the camaraderie.

Harley Quinn: The DC universe has iconic costumes, with Batman and the Joker at the very top. But for me, Harley Quinn takes the last spot. In a stinker of a movie, Margot Robbie's version rose above and left a mark on pop culture. However, the jester version from Batman: The Animated Series, even though it's a less common cosplay, would be my pick."

April loves the people behind the costumes more than the costumes - what a amazing answer!

It's not the characters I like as much as it is the people portraying them.

April is a Cosplayer and owner of PopCultHQ a professional media web page with a focus on the “Three C’s” – Comics, Cosplay and Conventions and does not have a overall favorite explained below.

"I like to see some of the more obscure and lesser known characters, but I can't really say that I have a particular favorite character I like to see Cosplayed. I truly appreciate them all for the time, skill, and thought that went into them.

I love the big flashy Cosplays and huge armor builds. Living with a builder, I know what goes into them. They are spectacular show pieces and frequently a testament to someones skills and devotion to their art. The costumes I enjoy the most aren't always the best looking out there or the most accurate.

They are frequently cobbled together by amateurs who want to show their love of a character and have fun. These are quite often the ones with minimal budgets, time, or knowledge that put together pieces or buy a Halloween costume.

I truly love the look on someones face when you recognize their character and ask for a photo, especially when they've convinced themselves it will never happen because they think their costume is crap. It's not the characters I like as much as it is the people portraying them."

I don't think cosplays have to be like pin point accurate, I like seeing gender bends or blended characters I.e modern versions or punk versions etc.

Heather is the founder and creator of The Valkyries, she is an avid player of games, reader of comics, watcher of films and drinker of brews! Big into horror movies and video games, she is always down for a discussion about why horror movies the god tier of all move genres and a beer! Heather loves Geralt of Rivias, Fallout vault dwellers, Family Cosplays read below:

"So in terms of cosplay, I just like to see some imagination and passion. I don't think Cosplays have to be like pin point accurate, I like seeing gender bends or blended characters I.e modern versions or punk versions etc.

But! My top 3 to see at conventions are always:

Geralt of Rivias- The Witcher 3 is my all time favorite game, so love seeing the white wolf, and with the Netflix show you just get more, often tossing coins which is always a laugh.

Fallout vault dwellers, extra bonus points for power armour or homemade pip boys! I did a vault dweller for Halloween one year complete with homemade pipboy using the fallout 4 app you can get that does a screen. It was a hit!

Family cosplays- so I saw an amazing family doing Alana, Marko and Hazel from the Saga comics series which was incredible!"

It's given me confidence and serves as a reminder of overcoming adversity in my own life

When Jamie is not geeking out over comics you’ll find him walking the streets of Manchester, England with a novel in hand. He is a DC, Marvel and WWE fanboy and also a short story writer and poet, his stories having been published by Hyperion and Theia, Colp, EastLit Magazine, Liquid Imagination and more. Jamie loves Red Hood, Nightwing, Deathstroke and Thor

"I've only cosplayed as Red Hood but would enjoy cosplaying as Nightwing, Deathstroke and Thor in the future. The reason why Red Hood is my favourite is because I find Jason Todd's story as a survivor relatable to my own journey. From the beginning, Jason wasn't afraid to follow his own path and do what he thought was right, even when it went against what Batman had taught him. He continued to fight for what he believed in and that takes a lot of guts and courage.

When dressing as Red Hood, it's felt like putting on my own suit of armour and feeling connected to the story of the character. It's given me confidence and serves as a reminder of overcoming adversity in my own life and I think that kind of feeling is extremely powerful from a mental health perspective. Cosplaying can become a valuable part of a positive mental health routine."

Cosplaying them allowed me to meet other people who were into the same series. Some of these people are my close friends today.

Roger a veteran Cosplayer likes to help the Cosplay community sharing invaluable information and guides including creating Cosplay on a budget

"By far my 3 favorite cosplays are: Roy Mustang from Fullmetal Alchemist, Sebastian from Black Butler and Marth from Fire Emblem. I generally like these characters because they're amazing characters in the actual Anime/video game.

On top of that, all three of them are relatively easy and comfortable to wear (I've had other costumes where they're really uncomfortable after a while). And best of all, Cosplaying them allowed me to meet other people who were into the same series.

Some of these people are my close friends today. So if I had to pick 3, it definitely would be Roy, Sebastian and Marth!"

Our Ghostbusters (Holtzmann and Yates) cosplay is our most expensive build and likely took us the most amount of time. It was also our first "professional" cosplay, which holds a special place in our hearts.

MaeBerry Cosplay is a cosplay couple based out of Albuquerque, NM specializing in body positive portrayals of LGBTQI+ characters. They love Carmilla Movie ballgowns, Our Ghostbusters (Holtzmann and Yates),Our Monster High

"Our top 3 favorite cosplays are as follows:

1) Our Carmilla Movie ballgowns are our most intricate cosplay to date. We spent so much time and effort in extensive detail for our first, period piece. We were unable to find purple and black striped fabric so we had to dye the many tresses of Carmilla's gown.

The crimping on the bodice of Laura's gown was also tedious with much starch and ironing. Plus, many of the fabrics were hard to soure for authenticity to the time period, along with the desired weight and colors.

2) Our Ghostbusters (Holtzmann and Yates) cosplay is our most expensive build and likely took us the most amount of time. It was also our first "professional" cosplay, which holds a special place in our hearts.

3) Our Monster High cosplay predates our 1st cosplay and was our first group cosplay. We created Robecca Steam and Spectra Vondergeist. The hand-painted corset and bodice for Robecca was extreme detail work by hand and it was our first corset build so there was a big learning curve."

Mikey loves - Tenzin, Hestu, Ashnard

Mikey MacWolff -

www.mikeydoescosplay.com

https://www.facebook.com/MikeyDoesCosplay/

https://www.instagram.com/mikeydoescosplay/

https://twitter.com/mikeycosplay

Don't get me wrong, I cosplay mostly for myself because I really enjoy showing some love to my favorite characters, but it's also really nice to make those connections with other fans of the same series!

Mikey is a Cosplayer, crafter, nerd, animal lover, steampunker, gaymer, dancer... all of these words pretty accurately describes his life.On a day-to-day basis you'll most likely find me on the floor of my house in northeastern Ohio either playing video games, painting, sewing, or making goodness knows what.

Mikey loves Tenzin from Legend of Korra, Hestu from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild , Ashnard from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

"Of my own Cosplays, I'd say these are my top three, all for their own unique reasons.

1) Tenzin from Legend of Korra [Photo by Lydia Joy Palmer, https://www.facebook.com/lydiapalmerart]

Tenzin is one of my favorite Cosplays to hang out at conventions in (when we were still having conventions, anyway). He was one of my favorite characters from Legend of Korra and I've always identified myself as an "airbender," so it's a good fit for my personality.

It's also one of the most comfortable Cosplays I have; there's no bulky armor, no big props to carry around, there's not even a wig! It's also nice because it's one of the more widely-recognized characters I cosplay, so I tend to have more interactions with people when I'm wearing it than some of my other, more obscure characters.

Don't get me wrong, I cosplay mostly for myself because I really enjoy showing some love to my favorite characters, but it's also really nice to make those connections with other fans of the same series!

2) Hestu from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild [Photo by Eric Kosino]

Hestu might be my number one favorite of all the Cosplays I've made thus far. It's not overly complicated or detailed, but its just so much fun to wear. My first time playing through Breath of the Wild, I met Hestu and he immediately became my favorite character.

He's just a goofy, dancing forest spirit who helps Link out on his adventures, and so he speaks directly to my soul. The interactions I get with people when I wear him are great, some people just shout "Yahaha!" at me (which is what the koroks say in the game when you find their hiding spots), or ask me to dance for them, which of course I'm always happy to shake my maracas and dance around for people!!

3) Ashnard from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance [Photo by Rose Stierna]

Ashnard is another of my favorites for more technical reasons; it's one of my more impressive Cosplays as far as details go, with embroidered designs on his tunic, a number of unusual belts that I had to make myself, detailed armor pieces, a cape truly fit for a king, and a giant sword with a really cool design.

The cape is one of my favorite parts because it's the type of cape that will keep you warm in a blizzard (though you're likely to sweat when you're inside at a convention). It's made with two layers of velvet and trimmed with faux fur, meaning its about 10lb worth of fabric, but the velvet flows so nicely and it really just makes me feel regal wearing it. My other

favorite part is his giant sword, Gurgurant; prop-making, particularly fantasy weapons, are one of my favorite things to do for cosplay, and his sword is one of the most impressive weapons I've made for myself thus far.

It's pretty heavy to carry around, which when combined with the cape and the armor pieces means that Ashnard is certainly not the most comfortable cosplay to wear for an extended period of time, but whenever I wear it I remember all of the time and work I put into making the cosplay and I'm really proud of how it turned out! Also, it's just fun to be a villain sometimes!

Picking 3 of my favorites out of all the awesome Cosplays out there is going to be a bit tougher, but I'll do my best to come up with a good selection.

1) Cloud & Tifa from Final Fantasy VII Cosplayers: Multiverse Cosplay (https://www.facebook.com/themultiversecosplay); individually Cloud: CorgisandCurls (https://www.instagram.com/corgisandcurls/) and Tifa: Lyssalalaa (https://www.instagram.com/lyssalalaa/) Photo by Madster Photo (https://www.instagram.com/madster.photo/)

I know I cheated a bit on this one, but Multiverse Cosplay comes as a pair and that's just how it is. Not only are they incredibly talented Cosplayers but they're also some of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. Their Cloud and Tifa Cosplays are some of my favorites, partially because Final Fantasy VII means a lot to me and partially because they fit the characters so well and did such beautiful work making their props and costumes.

2) Semirais from Fate/Apocrypha Cosplayer: Nekoyasha (https://www.instagram.com/nekoyasha09/) Photo by Lazy Fox (https://www.facebook.com/LazyFoxMI/)

There are a lot of awesome Semiramis Cosplays out there but Nekoyasha is one of my favorite! I think a big part of it is because she's got a lot of attitude and personality that she serves up whenever she's in cosplay so photos always turn out beautifully, and then she also provides us with a lot of goofy meme photos too!

3) Azura from Fire Emblem: Fates Cosplayer: Lady Reshi (https://www.instagram.com/ladyreshi/)

Photo by Headphone Studios

Lady Reshi always looks so elegant in all of her Cosplays but Azura is one of my favorites! The way the cosplay flows as she moves is awe-inspiring, which works well considering the character Azura is a performer."

Heather loves Aika, Eleanor and Eiko

Heather -

https://twitter.com/exeliax https://www.instagram.com/exeliax/

I love how these costumes look, but I also adore the characters; being able to wear costumes to represent a series I love is really important to me!

Hello! My name is Heather, known as Exelia!

I live in North East England and has been Cosplaying since 2005. I am self taught and have made over 100 costumes for myself and others. I love making cute, classic costumes, experimenting with different materials and techniques.. and of course, bringing my favorite characters to life!

"I've made a lot of costumes, so it's hard to pick just 3! But if I really have to choose, it would have to be Aika (Skies of Arcadia), Eleanor Hume (Tales of Berseria) and Eiko Carol (Final Fantasy IX). I love how these costumes look, but I also adore the characters; being able to wear costumes to represent a series I love is really important to me!

Aika is from Skies of Arcadia, my favorite video game - it's old and quite obscure. Aika's design is very striking, so my costume is like a visual "hello!" to other fans - it's amazing to meet people who love the game as much as I do!

f the "Tales" Series! I've done a lot of "Tales" costumes and have met so many friends through the community. Eleanor's costume is bold, comfortable and easy to wear so it's a great costume to take to events.

Eiko is from Final Fantasy IX. When I played the game for the first time I loved Eiko and wanted to be just like her, so she had always been a "dream costume" of mine! It was also the costume that took myself and my friend Yuka to Japan to compete in World Cosplay Summit, the biggest cosplay competition in the world which is.. pretty awesome."

Mercedes loves The Wander, Aloy, Carja Blazon Armor, Link from Legend of Zelda

Mercedes -

https://www.cosplaystitchandseam.com/

https://www.facebook.com/groups/CosplayStitchAndSeam/

Vermilion Fire, also goes by Mercedes, is always looking to level up her skills in just about anything. She carves wood into swords and shields, makes PVC pipe bows, leather-crafts armor, metal works details, and more. She has won many craftsmanship and performance awards across the Western United States and judged at various conventions and events.VFire founded the Cosplay Stitch and Seam Podcast and Blog to share her love of the culture and creativity in cosplay. Cosplay has been a huge part of her life for making new friends and trying new things. The hobby has helped her become more confident in herself and she seeks out others to help them find their inner strengths through crafting.

This costume pushed my skills to the limit and then some. It was so much fun assembling the over 60 pieces of leather armor and adding on cool "machine" parts.

"Picking three is so difficult! I love silly characters such as Break from Pandora Hearts, but also complex armor sets such as Shiek from Super Smash Brothers Brawl. After much deliberation... My top three favorite cosplay characters could be...

1) The Wander: Shadow of the Colossus. This is also my all time favorite game and I just enjoy stepping into this character's shoes. The game allows for epic scenery and really fun photoshoot ideas, while also being a challenge to create the different bits of clothing. The costume is also one of my most comfortable to wear and easiest to put on, while also looking really well put together.

The sword is my favorite part about this costume set. It is elegant and ancient looking. I did a custom design based on how I saw blade before the remake came out. It is all chipped and worn from stabbing literal mountains but has a magical aura about it. I currently have it on display on my wall in my project space.

2) Aloy, Carja Blazon Armor: Horizon Zero Dawn. This costume pushed my skills to the limit and then some. It was so much fun assembling the over 60 pieces of leather armor and adding on cool "machine" parts.

Capturing the game's aesthetic was so much fun and I technically live in the game's setting, just a few hundred years too early, haha! I got to try new things and in the end, I feel awesome wearing this armor set.

I have never felt more empowered than when wearing this cosplay and the character is really inspiring. Aloy is an incredible individual and I look forward to the sequel!! Plus more armor to create!!

3) Link from Legend of Zelda. This one is cheating because I am including every outfit I have made for Link. I love being the hero character and with Breath of the Wild, I was able to make more looks for my favorite fairy boy.

The Zelda series has always been my favorite and I really love adding simple details, or even complex embroidery, to add character and depth to the outfits. I have been down many lore trails around the zelda series and have a deep admiration for the games and their stories.

Adding a neat little detail to each armor set or piece of clothing that reminds me of a scene or the gameplay just makes my day. I tried quitting making Link builds, but it only last two minutes, haha!

Thank you!"

Socially awkward penguin learning the art of cosplay one costume at a time...

As someone who was just exploring the community, this cosplay was the turning point for me.

"I love all the cosplays I make because I pour all my heart and passion in every craft I do so choosing top 3 among them is tough but after some deliberation, these three are probably my favorite:

- Setsuka Heel from the Skip Beat manga. She was the very first cosplay that I put together myself. As someone who was just exploring the community, this cosplay was the turning point for me.

I used a lot of unconventional materials in building this cosplay and it got harder to maintain overtime so I had a hard time letting it go once it's already starting to fall apart and beyond repair. Since then I vow to myself to redo this cosplay in the future with a much better craftsmanship.

- Hoshizora Rin from Love Live. Coming from an idol anime, the character itself has many options to choose from but I fell in love with the little devil one because of its aesthetic and details. I live in a place where we don't get much resources unless you buy the entire costume online so I had to start most of it from scratch.

It was a very tedious process but detailing has always been therapeutic for me. Looking at the final photos and thinking about all the times spent working on it makes me really proud of myself.

- My Yang Xiao Long cosplays from RWBY. I love Yang so much and she's my favorite character from the series so I already made a promise to myself that I'm cosplaying all her outfits. So far I already finished two and I love both of them so much.

As someone who's just learning and being self taught, her costumes are a nightmare to begin with, from structuring to detailing and prop-making.

These were the times where I couldn't even picture the endgame because of all the trial and error I had to go through. Completing them was truly rewarding and something I feel really proud of.

Thanks and have a great day."



Wow! What an amazing collection of preferences and insights. This shows there are more characters out there than Wolverine can shake his claws at, Judge Dredd can judge or a Steampunker can show his pocket watch to. So many to learn about and experiment with in your costume.

Now I want to turn it over to you:

What are your favorite Cosplay characters? Let me know by leaving a comment below right now.

2020.07.20 18:18 patthepatriot2020 The Force Unleashed I & II Recanonized and Remastered (my own ideas)

I previously already posted a story idea for a recanonized version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, but upon looking back, I realize it was not as refined as it could have been. That in consideration, this is my new, refined version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Recanonized and my new idea for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.
We open on a Jedi master on Kashyyk fighting his way through some stormtroopers with a pair of wookiees acompanying him. After fighting his way through several squads, the master finally comes to his hideout beneath a large tree, only to find the black silhouette of Darth Vader standing at its entrance.
“Dark Lord!” he cries, “Whatever you’re looking for, you won’t find it here!” Vader ignites his lightsaber, and the two fight. Vader beats the master and slams him against a wall with the Force.
“I still sense many presences nearby. Tell me, where are you hiding those younglings?” Vader demands, pointing his saber at the master’s throat.
“It seems that the Dark Side has clouded your mind for too long, Skywalker. You killed all of the younglings long ago!”
“Skywalker is dea-” Vader begins to say, but is interrupted by a lightsaber whizzing towards him. He blocks it, and watches it fly back into the hands of its owner, a bold youngling with black hair and a stern gaze. Behind him are several other younglings, all with their lightsabers out.
“There you are,” Vader says to them.
“Run!” the master commands them, but Vader has crushed his windpipe, and he dies. Disheartened at the loss of the master, and intimidated by the rush of clone troopers that have entered the room, they surrender, but not the black haired young boy. He lunges at Vader, who deflects his attacks with ease and kicks him to the ground. Inside his head, Vader notes how he is impressed by the boy’s willingness to continue fighting where the others gave up. The clones raise their blasters to fire.
“No!” Vader commands them. “Not these. These ones are for a special purpose.”
Flashforward nearly ten years, and all of the younglings are knighted as Imperial Inquisitors, and the black haired Jedi, named Galen Marek, is dubbed the First Brother, and is given his dual-bladed lightsaber. Since these are the first inquisitors to be deployed, their lightsabers are not yet able to helicopter. Galen’s suit is similar to the one in this fanart piece.
He is joined by Proxy, one of the lightsaber training droids he had bonded with, and the two go to their private ship, the Rogue Shadow, piloted by Juno Eclipse. They already have their first assignment: go to Nar Shaddah, where a large star destroyer manufacturing facility was recently attacked by a sect of rebels believed to be led by a Jedi. Galen locates the Jedi, known as Rham Kota, and duels him. During the duel, his dual-bladed lightsaber is sliced in half, giving him two lightsabers. He blinds Kota and pushes him out of a hole in the floor, and believes him to be dead.
His next mission is on Raxus Prime to kill the insane Jedi Kazdan Parartus, who has built a massive replica of the Jedi Temple out of garbage. He fights him with great difficulty, but manages to kill him. His third mission is on Felucia, against Jedi Master Quinlan Vos, who is raising a new apprentice of his own named Marris Brood. He duels Master Vos, who warns Galen that the sith always betray one another, and chooses to commit suicide by jumping into a sarlaac pit.
Galen returns to Coruscant and is met by Lord Vader. Galen tells him what Master Vos said about the Sith betraying one another, and asked Vader if it was true. Vader said that Galen was not a Sith, only an inquisitor.
“However, you can become one. Join me, and become my apprentice, and in the future, we shall defeat the Emperor, and we shall reign as the new Sith Lords.” Galen accepts Vader’s offer, and Vader dubs him Darth Starkiller. Vader gives Starkiller his new mission.
There are sects of rebels growing all across the galaxy that seek to overthrow the Empire and restore the Republic, and Vader believes that he can use this to his advantage. He tasks Starkiller with uniting them all against the Empire. The cost is that he must sever all ties to his past, including his old crew and the rest of the inquisitors. As far as everybody is concerned, he is dead.
Starkiller’s first mission as Vader’s new apprentice is to begin recruiting the sects of rebels, beginning with any Jedi. He finds Rham Kota, miraculously alive, blind and and reduced to an alcoholic, on Nar Shaddah. He convinces him to join the rebels, and they escape the Imperial forces that are hunting him.
Their next stop is back on Imperial occupied Kashyyk, where Senator Bail Organa, a major imperial dissenter, is. Starkiller stumbles across the hideout where he and the rest of the younglings were hid by their master. He has a vision of what happened that day, and the memories of his old life as a Jedi come back to him. He liberates several of the wookiee slaves, earning Organa’s respect and convincing him to join the rebels. He does, however, have an important task for Starkiller. He must travel to Felucia, where his daughter, Leia, is being held hostage by Marris Brood, Quinlan Vos’s former apprentice, who has succumbed to the Dark Side.
Starkiller defeats Brood, but decides to spare her life, and frees Leia, taking her back to her father.
After sparing Brood’s life, Starkiller begins to reconsider becoming Vader’s apprentice. He confines in Kota about this, saying he wants to leave the Sith and join the rebellion for good. Kota listens to Galen’s story, and tells him that he can retrain him in the ways of the Jedi, and that they can defeat Vader and the Empire for good.
In order to convince more sects to unite, Galen attacks a massive Star Destroyer manufacturing facility on Correlia. Galen is attacked by Proxy, who finally wishes to fulfill his programming and kill him. Galen is forced to defeat him, but is surprised when Vader emerges from the shadows. Galen tells Vader the truth: that he no longer wants to be a sith, and is leaving the Empire for good.
Enraged, Vader fights Galen and knocks him away, then kidnaps the present rebellion leaders, leaving Galen alone with Proxy. The two come up with a plan to rescue Juno, who has been branded a traitor to the Empire.
She is being held in an Imperial prison on Umbara, and the two free her and explain what has happened. As they are leaving, they are faced by two inquisitors, both of which were friends of Galen’s. He is forced to kill one of them, but the other is killed by Proxy. Juno takes out the stormtroopers who began to flood the place.
Galen tracks the captured Rebel leaders to Corusnant, where they are beign interrogted by the Emperor himself. The leaders include Kota, Bail and Leia Organa, Mon Mothma, and Garm Bel Iblis.
Galen, Juno and Proxy fight their way though the hordes of stormtroopers and several inquisitors in Coruscant before reaching the Emperor’s palace. Galen fights his way through and finally meets Vader, but manages to work his way past him and enter the Emperor’s throne room. Kota steals the Emperor’s lightsaber to attack him, but is shocked by Force Lightning instead.
“Help him!” the young Leia pleads Galen. Realizing that Vader has entered the throne room, and that there is no way out, Galen activates his two lightsabers, and he and Kota duel the Emperor and Vader.
They barely manage to create an opening for the senators to escape to the Rogue Shadow, piloted by Juno, and Galen stays behind to let Kota escape as well. A massive blast of force energy sends Galen flying into a large computer, smashing it to bits. The Rogue Shadow escapes with the rebel leaders, and flies away from Coruscant.
Vader, who is battle damaged, and the Emperor inspect the wounded Galen. The Force blast burned him more than either of the Sith, and the machinery he smashed into left shards of metal and circuitry piercing his skin. His limbs were very burnt as well, and his breathing was weak and uneven.
“He is… still alive,” Vader said.
“And he has created the thing that could destroy us! This Alliance he has spawned could be this empire’s undoing,” the Emperor replied.
“But now we know who they are. I can hunt them down and destroy them as you intended me to do, my Master.”
“You must be relentless, Lord Vader. If even a single rebel survives, then we are finished.” The Emperor leaves as a few medics enter the room and begin handling Galen as Vader watches.
Meanwhile, back on Kashyyk, the senators commit to what Galen first wanted to do: unite all of the rebel sects under one alliance. Outside, Juno talks to Kota, who tells her that among Starkiller's dark thoughts, Juno herself was one bright spot that he held onto right until his death.
Back on Coruscant, Galen wakes up on a surgery table that has turned him perpendicular to the floor. He feels such terrible pain. A machine is forcing air in and out of his lungs, and several pieces of armor have been grafted onto his bare flesh. His legs, along with his right arm, are gone, replaced with prosthetics. The fingers are clawed on his metal hand, and on his flesh hand, metal claws have been jammed into the place where his fingernails once were. He is wearing a mask over his face, and the skin beneath it itched terribly. He more or less looks like this. Vader and the Emperor stood before him.
“You had such great potential,” Vader said. “You could have continued the line of the Sith, brought it greater than either of us could have.”
“Yes, and you wasted all of it,” the Emperor continued. “Still, we still have some small use for you in the inquisitor program. You shall do the bidding of the Empire for the rest of your days until the day we decide to cast you aside.”
“Finish the operation,” Vader commanded the surgeon droids as he left. The Emperor watched with sadistic pleasure as Starkiller screamed in agony as the surgery continued.
And now, here is The Force Unleashed II
For the past five years, Starkiller lived in constant agony. He rejoined the inquisitor program and still was forced to do missions, which consisted of destroying rebel sects that he wanted to help so badly. He is tortured by his own inner thoughts, of all of the former friends and allies he has been forced to kill, of his lost love for Juno, and by his own mutilated body. The other inquisitors loathe him, attacking him and beating him up to the point where he can’t fight back, calling him a filthy traitor, and then leaving him to wallow in his injuries.
He has never been stronger in the Dark Side.
Throughout the beginning of the game, Starkiller, who has been stripped of his title as “Darth”, is sent on several missions to defeat rebel forces across the Galaxy, but around a third of the way through the story, he is sent on an assignment to Cato Nemoidia, where he meets Rham Kota again.
“By the Force, I knew you were still alive,” Kota says, but Starkiller is forced to attack him. He nearly kills him, when a voice stops him.
“Hold it right there!” a woman shouts. Starkiller turns to see Juno Eclipse pointing a blaster at him. He turns off his lightsabers and turns to face his lost love.
“Juno?” Galen says.
“Galen?” Juno replies.
Their brief reunion is interrupted by a pair of inquisitors leaping down from a rooftop. One attempts to slice Juno down, but Galen blasts her to safety with the Force. One Inquisitor cuts off Galen’s prosthetic legs and restrains him, and the other fights Kota. An imperial ship hovers down and collects the two inquisitors. Juno, emerging from her hiding spot, throws a tracking beacon onto the ship as it flies away.
Starkiller is taken back to Coruscant, and is placed in a cell. Vader scolds him for saving a rebel (Juno) instead of killing her, and then leaves him to be tortured by the inquisitors.
The perspective changes. A small team of rebels has snuck onto Coruscant, including Rham Kota, a young Cassian Andor, and an aged Captain Rex. The three, along with several other troops, have planned a rescue mission to save Galen. The player takes the perspective of Captain Rex.
The team arrives at the prison where Galen is being kept, and breaks in. After fighting through stormtroopers and dueling an inquisitor, they finally arrive at Galen’s cell. A pair of medics takes him, and they rush out. Cassian shoots an Imperial security droid, but discovers that the droid is still slightly active. He argues that taking it could prove beneficial to the rebels. They could steal imperial data from him, and then reprogram him to fight for the rebels. Kota relents, and the droid is brought along.
The team escapes Coruscant and flies back to Yavin IV, the new rebel base which was established recently. Galen is taken to the medical facility to be treated for his wounds. He’s a hot mess.
Several pieces of armor were grafted directly onto his skin, which was pale and covered in sores, burns, and scars. The prosthetic limbs he was given were out of date and welded painfully onto his limbs. His body was jammed with shrapnel that had never been removed, and the suit was designed with strategically placed needles that stabbed him whenever he moved. He was missing an eye, and in its place a camera was jammed into the socket. His hair, which was once black, was now a pale white. His one remaining eye was yellow with the Dark Side.
The worst part of it all was probably the breathing apparatus which replaced his diaphragm, which was worn and broken, barely able to function at all, and it was jammed in place and couldn’t be removed.
Everything that could be removed or repaired (his faulty prosthetic limbs, his eye, the shrapnel, the armor pieces, etc.) was removed and repaired, but the breathing apparatus couldn’t be moved. He was placed in a bacta tank for long periods before he was removed. All that time he was healing, he was visited by Kota and Juno. Kota began teaching him the way of the Jedi, about letting go of your anger and hatred and letting the Force guide you.
Galen asked Juno if she would still love him, even after all of the horrible things he was forced to do for the Empire. Juno said nothing, but kissed him. As she did so, his eye faded back to its original color. He had let go of his hatred, and Starkiller was no more.
Galen’s red bladed lightsabers were replaced with new crystals, one being blue and the other yellow. His breathing apparatus, while it couldn’t be removed, was repaired. His breathing went from this to this. While breathing was still rather painful, it was a great improvement.
He also changed his wardrobe. He wore a mask that only covered his mouth and nose, leaving his eyes exposed, and he donned, some classic, light Jedi robes. His prosthetics were improved as well, while the old ones were welded directly onto his bones and were incredibly poorly built, his new ones were mounted on less painfully and ran much smoother. As he spent more time in the sun, his skin gained its color back and the sores and scars began to heal, and his hair changed back to black. He began to see himself in his reflection now.
Now that he was healed, he was eager to take the fight back to the Empire, especially facing Vader and getting justice for what he did. First, however, Kota had one last test for him. He had to enter a strange three-doored cave at the bottom of the base. Galen entered, and realized that his wounds were gone, and his limbs were back. He jumped back in terror as he saw several jedi, calling him a traitor, tangled in the vines of the cave. He initially went for his lightsabers, but then calmed himself. He had to keep a clear head. He brushed past the copies, and continued down the path. He then saw Juno standing in some fog, which turned into the bridge of a ship. Starkiller saw Juno get attacked, then limp towards him. He tried to call out to her, but the vision faded.
He exited the cave and described his vision to Kota. Kota says that these could be glimpses into the future, and he must be cautious for Juno’s sake. As they head back up to the main base, they receive an alert from Captain Rex: Juno’s ship, while she was on her own mission, has been attacked by Imperial forces, and it is believed she was taken hostage. The three coordinate an attack and go to rescue her.
They board the Imperial Star Destroyer that attacked Juno's ship and search for her and the crew. Galen is forced to fight several spider-like droids and Terror Troopers, as well as one last inquisitor, before finding Juno, unconscious. Boba Fett takes her and flies off. Galen chases after him all the way to the hangar, where the Slave I is docked. Rex quickly tosses a tracking beacon onto the ship before it flies off.
Galen tracks the ship down to Kamino. The rebel fleet arrives above Kamino, where it becomes apparent that the Imperial fleet was expecting them—the Rebellion suffers major casualties. Five boarding pods deploy Imperial troops onto the Salvation. Galen kills the invading Imperials, which includes two AT-STs and three AT-MPs. After clearing the hangar of the boarding pods, several Y-Wings were able to launch. Galen then progressed back the way he came, going through the drive core, clearing Imperials out of the engine room, and accessing the gunnery area. A lucky shot from a nearby Imperial I-class Star Destroyer rendered the Salvation's main gun offline. Galen used the Force to power the main gun, firing at the Star Destroyer with a shot so powerful, it cleaved it in half. From there, he proceeds to the bridge, where Kota orders the fleet to keep up the assault, despite numerous casualties. After informing Galen that Kamino's Planetary shield was preventing any ground assault, Starkiller told him that the shield would not survive a direct hit from a cruiser, and also advised him to get to the Rogue Shadow. Kota took the advice, but not before ordering everyone to abandon ship. Galen used the Force to clear debris out of the way during the ship's descent. Before the ship hit Timira City, Starkiller bailed out, and watched the ship hit the city
Plunging into the city, Galen comes across Imperial walkers and Incinerator war droids. He aids Kota's troopers several times, who in turn assist Galen by capturing the security center and deactivating security screens. An Imperial bombing run takes out a nearby bridge, but Kota and Galen were able to reform it, allowing the two Jedi to meet up. Kota said that the upper levels had been sealed off, though Galen went up there anyhow. Kota, unable to bear the conflict of Galen going to face Vader alone, risking his life for Juno's, begs Starkiller to rethink his actions, and to leave Juno behind. Attachment was not the Jedi way. Galen, however, informs the General that he cannot leave Juno behind, as he loves Juno. He then asks Kota why he chose to rescue him instead of simply leaving him behind. Before Kota can answer, Galen leaves.
As Galen progresses up the main tower, he came across thousands of cloning platforms. He came across fierce resistance in the form of Terror Troopers and one last Inquisitor.
Galen finally reaches the top of the spire, yet when he does, he finds himself plagued by anxiety, fear, hatred and love. He is unable to run, only walk through this self-inflicted nightmare. His anxiety, magnified greatly by the Force, crushes neighboring equipment. Visions of Vader himself attack him out of nowhere, although he was able to repel them, and voices of Juno and Kota echo around him, Juno labeling him a "monster" and a "thing", while Kota brands him "Vader's puppet."
Finally overcoming the visions, Galen enters a large cloning chamber, and sees Vader standing on a cloning platform. Vader and Galen duel. Numerous times, Vader throws cloning pods, and even platforms at Galen. Throughout his duel, Galen sees visions of his past. As the duel progresses, Galen and Vader lock blades just as the he receives another vision, this time of the future; a vision of him cradling Juno's body, saying that he 'should have stayed here'. Vader uses this distraction to break the bladelock, and push Galen away. He then hops onto one of the floating droids in the facility, and floats up to the room where he is keeping Juno, Galen following right after
Arriving in front of Vader, Galen demands to know Juno's location. Vader steps aside, and reveals her. Gripping Juno by the throat, using the Force, Vader orders Galen to bow before him, else Juno dies. Galen obeys, dropping his lightsabers. Juno is set down by Vader, and unseen by both Vader and Galen, crawls towards one of the discarded sabers. Vader orders Galen to execute Kota, give himself to the Dark Side, and to execute the remaining rebel leaders. If he did not do any of these, then Juno would die. However, Juno ignites the saber she picked up and slashes at Vader, but he dodges the attack and she is thrown through a window by him, landing on an electrified platform, seemingly dying. Galen, believing this has killed Juno, lets out a feral scream, succumbing to the Dark Side again, and charges Vader, summoning back his lightsabers. They engage in a brief lock before Vader grips and throws Galen as well, although he makes a perfect landing. Vader jumps down after him.
The two of them engaged in another duel, with Vader attempting to convince Galen that Juno and Galen's connection to her were both meaningless. Galen is inconsolable however, screaming that he will kill Vader. During the duel, Galen electrocutes Vader several times by pushing him against the electrical pylons surrounding the area. Vader at last disarms the Dark Jedi and throws him from the platform where the duel was taking place. Galen manages to grab onto the edge of the platform, and Vader attempts to dislodge him by throwing his lightsaber at him repeatedly. Galen manages to catch the lightsaber on it's fourth throw and tosses it back at Vader, severing the Dark Lord's right hand. The injury however, only momentarily distracts Vader, who, after missing Galen with a backhand punch, Force pushes him across the platform and attempts to crush him with one of the pylons. Galen barely manages to hold it off himself, and raises another pylon from the platform. Vader glances over at the second pylon, and Galen uses the distraction to toss the first pylon off himself. Using the Force, he causes the remaining pylons to release a huge amount of electricity, which he then absorbs and uses to blast an incredible amount of Force lightning at Vader, finally subduing him. Galen stands before Vader, pointing his lightsabers at the dark Lord’s head.
“You’ve taken everything from me!” Galen roars.
“Your feelings for her… are meaningless,” Vader heaves.
“They meant everything to me!”
Kota arrives, followed by Captain Rex and several other rebel troopers.
“You want him dead as much as I do, right?” Galen asks.
“Yes, but not yet! Not until he’s told us everything he can about the Empire!”
“You want to take him prisoner?”
“Back to our base where we can interrogate him and put him on trial for crimes agains the galaxy! And then we’ll execute him to show the galaxy that we don’t need to fear him or the Empire any longer!”
“But… if I let him live… he’ll haunt me forever.”
“He is the only one who knows the weaknesses that can destroy the Empire. He can’t tell us any of that if he’s dead!
As the storm around them subsides, Galen let go of his hate and deactivated his lightsabers. Kota ordered another trooper to get some restraints for Vader.
Galen finds Juno, who is being tended by some medics. They say she is alive, but in critical condition. She needs to get to a transport immediately if they want her to live. A ship touches down on the landing pad and she is taken there.
Later, on the ship, Juno is attached to life support machinery, and the doctors say she should recover. She wakes up, and kisses Galen on the mask that covers his mouth and nose.
The rebel fleet takes off from Kamino, but is interrupted when several more Star Destroyers come out of hyperspace, led by the Eclipse, the Emperor’s personal Super Star Destroyer.
Galen quickly puts Juno into a cryo-pod and takes her and several other rebels to an escape pod, then goes to find Vader, who has escaped. Boarding parties enter the ship, and begin sweeping for rebels. Galen quickly finds the bridge evacuated, adn wipes the ship of all of its databases, and sets it to self-destruct, then goes to find another ship. He leaps into a Y-wing, and then leaves to find the escape pods and hopefully Juno. Unfortunately, he is caught by several TIE fighters and forced to crash-land onto the nearby planet of Dathomir.
Galen survives, and searches nearby for supplies to survive. He thankfully finds a few escape pods, all of which contain survivors, one of which contain Juno. Unfortunately, their radio equipment is damaged, so they can’t call for help.
The rebel survivors are stuck there for ten years. All that time, Galen continues training himself to become a Jedi, though it is difficult without Kota’s guidance. Juno survives her injuries, and her and Galen are married, and have a daughter named Janie. Finally, tne of the rebels are able to catch the attention of a passing ship. They explain their situation to the captain, who takes them to Coruscant, the capital of the New Republic. There, Galen meets Chancellor Leia Organa, who explains all that has passed in the last ten years they were missing. The Empire has been dethroned, and Vader and the Emperor are both dead. Many of the rebel leaders have taken government positions in the New Republic. Kota has helped start the New Jedi Order on Yavin 4, along with the help of two Jedi known as Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. Captain Rex has retired form military service, and now lives on Yavin 4, close to the new Jedi Temple where the rebel base once was.
Galen, Juno and Janie go there, and they tell Luke, Kota and Ahsoka about everything that happened to them. Luke gives Galen a seat on the new council (since it’s lacking members) and lets Janie be trained as a Jedi.
The last scene is Galen, Juno and Janie visiting Rex in his retirement. He’s starting a small homestead in view of the Jedi temple, and wishes to live out the rest of his days in peace after all of the bloodshed he had to witness.
Well, that’s about what I have. Thank you all for reading. What did you guys think of this? Are there parts of it that need work, or is this a good story? Any criticism is welcome, so long as it’s constructive.

Heres the link to the post on facebook. It has pictures and its my streaming page: https://www.facebook.com/127538337927707/posts/385134385501433/
PLEASE SHARE THIS. To any Discord groups for ML Reddit groups Facebook pages/groups Emails
PLEASE HELP ME GET MY ACCOUNT BACK!
If we get my account back I will continue to support and spend money on this game. I will have a huge giveaway with 25 winners 😅 I want my account back and I am desperate!
PLEASE NOTE I NEVER GAVE ANYONE MY EMAILS OR PASSWORDS!! I DO NOT SHARE THAT INFORMATION EVER! I AM NOT STUPID!
I just want to bring something to everyones attention:
If you do not have the FIRST ever ORDER NUMBER to your Mobile Legends account and something happens to where you need to get your account back....good luck because customer service WILL NOT help you.
As everyone knows my account was hacked back in May 2018. I was off social media when one of my admins apparently wanted to be a hacker or got someone to hack my facebook and google play. I dont know as I STILL don't know which admin it was . Most of you are asking questions like "How did they get on your account without you knowing?" 1. I was off social media COMPLETELY. I shut off my phone for a few months. What baffles me is that Facebook didn't alert me someone was on my account. They sent me an email saying "someone logged into your account on ___ is this wasn't you please click this link." But I never got a code on my phone. Which I should have because I set that up. Because of Facebooks fuck up, my account got hacked. Now they have my google account too because I had the same email and password. They unbound my account and they sold it off to someone for SUPER cheap. $200 for an account I spent 7000 CANADIAN dollars on just buying skins on my account. Plus another 2000 for the skin giveaways that I hosted for all of you lovely people and then another 1000 for giveaways I hosted for other people. So in total I spent around 10000 dollars on Moontons game. Some people are like "Wow why would you ever spend that much on a game, a mobile game at that?!" Well because that's what streamers do. They buy the latest skins and things to keep their viewers updated on everything. They spend their own money on giveaways to say thank you for all the support. It's just what we do. Yeah I'm not a huge streamer, I only have a little under 2.5k followers, but those followers are my family and without them I wouldn't be where I am today. Anyways, back to the story. So this person gets my account and he notices a MOONTON ACCOUNT is still bound, why? And why can't I give him the email and password to it? Well the hacker couldn't gain access to that email because it was a different email and password from my Facebook and Google Play account on my ML account. So he/she told the person that "Oh I lost access to that account a long time ago. Don't worry I won't log on. Don't even remember the password." Now, if I was buying an account I would NEVER fall for that in a million years. I'd 1. Not buy the account or 2. Get them to contact Moonton right away to get it disconnected. But apparently this guy didn't think straight? I don't know. So 2 months go by from May 13th 2018 (This is when he bought my account as he showed me a screenshot.) And I go to log into my facebook and noticed someone was on it pretending to be me. I changed my email and password and logged out all accounts on my account through the settings. Not even thinking about my Moblie Legends account, I didn't even look at my BabuFett page. I wasn't ready for streaming again. So another month goes by when everyone is messaging me to go back to streaming Mobile Legends. Ok, sure. I go to log on to my account and notice I can't do it through Facebook or Google Play. Weird? Extremely. So I log on to it through Moonton to see that someone is bound to account through facebook, google and vk. What the fuck?! The name is changed too. Someone has been on my account and I rush to my email to contact Moonton. In the first few pictures you can see what I have been dealing with. November 27th 2018 I emailed Moonton from my babufett email. I gave them screenshots of my original bound accounts, the original name and look of the account, screenshots of all the 105 purchases I made on their game from August 2017 to Feb 2018 (through google play.) I showed them links of my facebook page where I streamed and did giveaways. I showed them the emails I got from facebook when I was hacked. I sent them the mobile device that I made the account with and my current device. They didn't respond. For a whole year I was sending messages to them with no response. So I sent another email to them through a different email account. I got a response "fill out this form." So I filled it out and messaged them. I got all the information right, so they contacted me through email needing the Order numbers for my FIRST and LATEST purchases. Here's where the problems get hard. Google has this stupid system. On google play I can see ALL purchases on my account, but I can't get the order number that way. Instead I need to go on GOOGLE PAY to see all my recipts and order numbers. The problem with this is that if you don't have the information to the ORIGINAL card you made the purchase on, you can not see that transaction. So I could not get the order number. I called Google Play and was on the phone for 3 hours, if not MORE trying to find some way to get the order number. But they couldn't do anything. I got so angry and upset over this stupid system. I switch my debit card a lot because I lose my card or it gets cracked or something and no longer works. So google suggested to me to go to my bank and ask them to go back to Aigust 30th 2017 to find the purchase I made with Moonton. So I went to my bank and they printed me off all the purchases from google play on that day. Moontons account name when making any purchase is "YoungJo _V". On the bank statement you can see the date, time, the sellers name (Moonton), the price of the diamonds, an item trace number etc. I also gave them the LATEST ORDER NUMBER I MADE before the account was hacked. Which was in Feb 2018. I actually had that order number because I used my current card. However, they said they will not deal with me because I don't have the actual purchase order number. How is a BANK STATEMENT not good enough? In fact it should be BETTER as ANYONE can hack a google play account. As you know, my fucking google account was hacked! I am the ONLY one that can have access to my fucking bank account and ask for bank statements.
Now here's where it gets EVEN BETTER. I looked up the Facebook account attached to my Mobile Legends account. It was under the name "Edogawa Kakesu." I messaged him all while dealing with Moonton because I thought MAYBE if I message him and give him some sort of deal to get my account back, he'd do it. Now I ONLY did this because he NEVER played on it anymore. He rarely would play 1 or 2 ai matches on it. So I told him what was going on and that's when he told me "lies you sold me account" "how do u have access to that email you said you didn't" etc. I told him that it WASNT ME. I offered him to make him a new account and level up all the emblems, get him loads of bp, rank him up so he can get the season skin, buy him skins (200 dollars worth) etc. But he didn't want that. Instead he wanted 3000 usd dollars because he had a baby on the way and didn't care about ML anymore. Excuse me? You spent $200 on an account I spent $10,000 on. I offered him to make the account and also set up a donation bar in my streams and give him all the donations. Nope, I needed 3k in 1 month or he wasn't giving me my account. I kept trying to make deals with him. Then he sent me A HUGE FUCKING SKIN LIST of the skins he wanted me to buy and if I didn't buy them all he wouldn't unbind his accounts. Bare in mind thats probably thousands of dollars worth of skins and 10% you can't even get anymore or need to do lucky boxes and spins which are anywhere between 3000-5000 diamonds. Which is 150 CAD dollars for 5k diamonds! Yahj is his other account he has on facebook. He deactivated the other one, I don't know why.
He just wants money from me to scam me and not give me my account back.
Then on top of this, he was selling an account that I STILL BELIEVE that it is this person who has my account and he is apart of a verified squad in ML.
Everyone has suggested to go into my emails and get the order number. But my email is my main work email and it always gets cleaned out every 2 months because I have thousands of emails.
At this point I am fusturated, upset, pissed off, and frankly fucking done with dealing with automated emails from Moonton and their bullshit customer service. Just because I'm not a huge streamer it makes it ok for them to just completely disgard me because I don't have a fucking order number from 2 years ago? Before this account I had another one called "Twibbers" back in September 2016 and spent about 300 dollars on it. Lost that account because I forgot the details (my fault.) But like I've been playing since almost the very beginning when this game came out! And yet I'm treated like I didn't just spend 10000 dollars on their game. Like I didn't promote them and got my friends into the game as well. This makes me feel like I'm not important to them at all and they rather lose my business because they have millions of other people. But if you continue to be like this towards customers, you will end up losing them.

Hell.
It is a word that inspires terror in the hearts of many; a brutal and savage realm of horrible agony and suffering, the likes of which can only be experienced on this mortal coil upon repeated viewing of 'National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 2: Cousin Eddie's Island Adventure.' Children and pearl-clutching old lady alike the world over dare not to speak it's name, lest they invite the most heinous of dooms upon themselves. The imagery invoked is nearly universal; unquenchable and eternal flames, the hideous cries of the damned, little red devils gleefully dance and wave their pitchforks about, their cherry-like ass-cheeks glistening as the Prince of Darkness himself rubs his hands together and cackles maniacally...
Personally, I find such prose to be a bit too purple for my taste. You know, tl;dr and all that. The Dante's Inferno game was pretty tight, but I digress- The truth is that, to me, Hell is not a place or dimension, but a state of being; one in which I find myself as we speak.
You see, I've had jobs as long as I was legally allowed to do so, and the vast majority of them have been customer-facing. If you've worked any kind of service job, you understand what Slipknot's classic ditty "People=Shit" is all about. The world is full of people who see an employee as nothing more than a subhuman creature to be abused, and that's just the ones you had to deal with in person. For those unfortunate enough to stumble into the sarlacc pit that is employment at an inbound call center, well; any hope of being respected by the consumer flies right out the window that your cubicle prevents you from being able to see out of, and in that regard, I'm just a regular Boba Fett.
Indeed, as General Ackbar declared, it was a trap. Once you get into the call center cycle, it's damn near impossible to break free from. Not that I've managed to accomplish such an incredible feat- I've been doing this for nearly a decade at this point. Still, I maintain hope that one day I will escape from this administrative Bastille. I remain unbroken, though not for lack of effort on the part of those who call upon me to cater to their whims.
I remember one call in particular that I had some time back while I was working for a large retirement firm, which made me consider banging my head against the wall until death's sweet embrace took me away. See, my job was really quite simple: I was to sit there at my desk, and take calls from people who had forgotten their password to the company's website. The task was easy enough; ask the caller some questions to verify their identity and reset their password. It was honestly the most straightforward call center job I've actually had. That is, until Gloria called...
The conversation began as all calls into the center did, with me on my best manners greeting the caller and asking how I could help them today.
"I need my password reset," the caller said .
"Okay," I replied. "Please state your name and SSN."
The woman gave me her name, but was not down with giving me her social security number. Whatever, that was fairly common. People are understandably hesitant to say that number out loud over the phone, and as long as she could verify some alternate information, I could still help her out.
So I tried looking her up by name, except there were no results. So then I asked her if she might be in the system under a maiden name, to which she said yes, so I searched for that. Still, I found no matching result.
Over the course of a half hour or so, I tried everything I could think of to locate this woman in our system, because she insisted she had an account with us, and I aimed to please. I'm talking date of birth, account numbers, first and last initials, etc... So then I asked "what kind of account? Is it a 401k?"
"No."
"403b?"
"No."
"Roth IRA..?"
"No," she sighed in frustration.
I was just about to crack.
"Ma'am, I'm having a very difficult time locating you in my system. I really am going to need that SSN to find you."
"No," she interjected. "I never even gave y'all my social, so how you supposed to use that to find me?"
"[sigh] look, is it possible you were trying to access something other than one of your retirement accounts? Maybe that's why I can't find you?"
She grunted, obviously displeased by the question.
"I don't even know why y'all keep askin' me about retirement accounts. It's not rocket science: I can't get logged in, so I googled 'password reset' and this is the number that popped up first.
That's when it hit me.
"Ma'am," I asked, "exactly what kind of account do you have with us..?
"I'm tryin' to get logged back into my Netflix, you dummy!"
I facepalmed with such force in that moment that I think I may have ruptured the fabric of space and time, because after that moment is when I started noticing that all the Mandela Effect shit started happening. My bad, everyone.
"Ma'am," I said through gritted teeth. "This is [REDACTED] Financial. I said that at the beginning of this call. We cannot administrate your Netflix account. You need to call Netflix support."
"Oh, just great. Thanks for wasting my goddamn time, moron. Put me through to your fuckin' survey!"
"Gladly, ma'am."
[click]
Best part is that I saw the survey she took later, and she obviously didn't listen to those instructions either, because she gave me all ones on a survey where one is 'very satisfied' and fives are 'very dissatisfied'.

2018.10.24 09:44 Krockadyl THE UNFORSAKENING: Deconstruction of the debacle, OpTic India's Nikhil 'Forsaken' Kumawat.

Hi /GlobalOffensive,
I wrote and did esports things for GG.net, Team Fnatic and other orgs several years ago. I’ve been in esports for around 10 years now. The 'Forsaken' incident has been quite shocking and disturbing. This incident is right on top there with IGC, in the list of international embarrassments that we’ve had to suffer through as a community. We may not be as 'big' as some 'marketingmaterial.ppt' might inform you, but we've been a very passionate and an involved bunch of esports fans since the earliest days. Long before the clowns entered and made it their business to run the esports 'of the country' instead of 'for the country'. Our efforts to strive forward, add value and be a member of the global community are not affected in the slightest by this shameful incident, which I feel deserves a deeper, de-constructive look.
----
So, What we do is go back back back

August 17, 2017:

Team IYATI from India puts out a post on facebook asking for ESL India to look into Forsaken citing "fishy forsaken plays". They suspected him of using scripts and discovered an account that he had played from had a VAC ban.

August 18:

ESL India announces that he will be banned for 2 years from ESL and permanently from Valve's side of things.

September 12:

"Was the F0rsaken ban completely justified?"
Afkgaming and the client "Sostronk" (Company: Archetype entertainment), both companies are in partnership with Optic/Infinite esports to create 'Optic India'. It seems here like they are trying hard from their end to bring justice to this individual, quite passionately, and they do end up making a decent point in the end.
An excerpt from the blog post above:
"The main issue here is that an account he used to play on has now been VAC banned. The account he uses right now, the one he has been using since he started playing in tournaments has no VAC of any sort on it. There simply is not enough, if at all any, proof that he has used any sort of hack in a match and unless it’s proven by a competent authority there’s really no use in listening to what any Tom, Dick or Harry has to say or what clips they have from whichever random match that they have taken without any context."

Also, This statement:
"Now in most cases, a competent authority gets to ascertain whether the player in question has violated the rules or not and then the community gets to pass their judgement. In F0rsaken's case, the complete opposite seems to have happened. First and foremost, members of Team IYATI are in no position to decide "fishy" plays and they have no authority to do so. And finally, this image that they create of trying to "keep the community clean" is pretty superficial. Sharing personal screenshots of chats without taking prior permission is a very immature and cannot be encouraged."
Now, apart from the instances of bias and snark in the article, the 'competent authority' that ESL/Nodwin/Afk/Sostronk have decided to align with, in this case, just happens to be ESIC. The ESIC members are primarily ESL, Dreamhack, Nodwin(partly owned by ESL) and other ESL partners. Nodwin owns a part of Afkgaming and definitely has strong partnerships with Sostronk but whether they have been invested into by Nodwin is unconfirmed as of now.AFKgaming has already proven itself to be a mouthpiece that publishes a unique brand of content to help out their friends and partners as they have done multiple times. example1 , example 2, example 3

December 8:

The Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC) today reduced the suspension on CS:GO professional, Nikhil “Forsaken” Kumawat from 2 years to 6 months. This means he will be free to play competitive CS:GO in ESIC Member events from 18th February 2018.
[ESIC Link]
Observations:
  1. ESIC has no prior judgements that can be used as a precedent where a ban that had been handed out earlier has been reduced at a later stage. I've gone through all of their listed posts since inception.
  2. From The article:
"The reason for the reduction is that the player was able to persuade the Integrity Commissioner that, technically, he had never been the owner under Valve’s terms of Service of the relevant Stream Account (despite controlling it for a period of time) and that it had not been him that had been VAC banned or that was responsible for the behaviour that lead to the VAC ban. He did, however, still breach Valve’s ToS by trading in Steam Accounts and this is prohibited, which is why the original sanction has not been expunged."
The key word here is "technically". It just sounds as if they are trying to get in the clear by citing a technicality, in other words, a loophole.
  1. Nikhil 'Forsaken' Kumawat's statement:
"I started playing professionally in India near January 2017 when I was asked to join this mixteam called Shooting Monkeys by my friend Swapnil. I got involved in account trading near September 2016 because of mainly 3 reasons that I needed a break from CS:GO, I needed some money during my college time and I was not *completely aware* of Valve’s terms of service on account selling or trading but I know that’s not an excuse to do something illegal or unethical or violating Valve’s terms of service and I must serve punishment for this.”
He says that he wasn't completely aware of these rules, but almost everyone who even enters ESL starter cups or amateur tournaments knows what these rules. ESL, through Nodwin, has been doing tournaments in India for years now. Also, all this while, evidence provided from multiple players, peers in different teams and the community members kept coming in. Some players have even claimed to have sent the suspicious demo files to Sostronk, ESL/Nodwin but were met with no response. Meanwhile, screenshots collected by several community members show that many employees Nodwin, ESL India, AFKgaming and SoStronk not just supported him, but even hailed him as a "prodigy" and completely dismissed the community's collective claims. Often insinuating the other party as a 'jealous competitor' or 'sour grapes', as they seem to be fond of that term.
From the local commentators, the one who was recently given “threats” of physical violence, to event admins (both mentioned in his statement thanking people who helped him), anyone who worked at Nodwin/ESL events all have supported him repeatedly amidst multiple accusations that were thrown into the CS:GO India Community group on facebook.
Also just to add some perspective, this facebook group itself is owned by ESL Product head and SoStronk employees. It's a miracle that they are letting people even express their opinions on this story in that group, since only a few months ago it was only because of this subreddit that the parent company Nodwin, was forced to take an action on the case of the Bangladeshi developer, who had not been paid from Nodwin. When that issue popped up, the former SoStronk employee, current ESL India product head - Aditya shah, who is also a commentator on Nodwin/ESL tournaments, deleted posts in the group multiple times and deleted some comments that were supporting the developer and even abused some community members. Many of the other admins are either employees of Sostronk, ESL India, or ex employees of nodwin.
As of writing this post, the community group’s [‘ownership’ is with CSGO2Asia](https://imgur.com/a/Ft8D9qH), which is run by [this dude] (https://www.linkedin.com/in/nikhilhathiramani/) from Singapore who is/was also a consultant with Sostronk. This wasn’t the case several months ago. The head admin of that group is Aditya Shah - another former SoStronk employee, who is now the product head of ESL India at Nodwin Gaming, many of the other admins are either employees of sostronk, ESL India, or ex employees of Nodwin.

May 1 2018:

Optic India announces tryouts under the "eye" of Prashant 'aequitas' Prabhakar (owner of sostronk, former coach of entity,) and Ali Saba, the scout from Optic. [HLTV]

Sostronk + OpTic + Afk:

Optic coming to India was huge deal for India and probably the maximum bang-for-buck marketing agenda for Optic. They struck a deal with Afkgaming, SoStronk and another company (i think 'luduspro'? Iirc, but they don’t seem to be in the picture anymore) to organize these "historical" tryouts and potentially more. SoSotronk and AFK built up the hype and facilitated the process while generating content. They were also the key stakeholders and business partners with Optic/Infinite in the process.

Observations and Conclusions:

  1. Forsaken was not entertained by competitive cs go players in India. "Nobody wanted to play with him, we all knew he was hacking" - is the generic statement everybody seems to be going with. -
  2. Nobody in the competitive community knows or understands why his ban was reduced from 2 years to 6 months. They also don’t fully know what ESIC is. There seems to be a motivated group of individuals who felt quite sympathetic about him and his supposed "struggles" in life, which led to afkgaming(with the opinion piece on top), which is owned in part by Nodwin gaming, and Sostronk to push for his ban get reduced or removed. No Player fully understands why this was done, and they don't even fully grasp the concept of ESIC. During the time of selections/tryouts, many good players were already under contracts with other organizations. That might have made the talent pool available for tryouts much smaller.If there exists any proper written correspondence between Ian Smith, the ESIC commissioner, and Nikhil ‘Forsaken’ Kumawat, I’d love to see that.
  3. There are also a lot of limitations and constraints on players because of the organizations that they represent and are contracted with currently. They want to share information about this and take a public stand but at the same time they are dependent on this whole system to fully support them. Because there is no other consistent tournament organizer left in the country. Many of them have chosen to pursue this full time, some have even quit or put their education on hold. I also wouldn’t rule out the possibility of certain teams or players being a part of the ‘Nodwin’ monopoly directly or indirectly, looking at the way they’ve chosen to be relatively quiet about this. This incident should be strongly, unequivocally condemned.In the past, Nodwin has also approached teams in India trying to act as a broker and a middle man, to get brand and sponsorship deals. They were basically asking as many teams as they could to send in their respective “proposals” so that Nodwin could represent them in front of brands like HyperX etc. I know that because I myself had been approached about 3 years ago. They wanted to “help” me in getting sponsorships for my already bootcamping team, and in return they would take a cut/commission. I obviously asked them for a draft of an agreement sent over email, which was laughed off and that was that. -
  4. The Admins who are hired at events by Nodwin are fans/friends of these pro-players and are mostly there to get to hang out and chill with them. It was slightly amusing to know that the most common solution to a problem is, "okay restart the pc". Essentially, the admins that are hired are essentially qualified only to sort mic and sound issues and lack the knowledge needed. Some screenshots posted also allege that an ESL admin even knew about Forsaken's multiple accounts(?)
  5. Players can be vocal to only an extent because they are heavily dependent on tournament organizers for income. In this case, primarily Nodwin. Nodwin in the past has been extremely strict with respect to what players or others speak of them in public domain. Being the only stable tournament organizer, they have an obscene amount of leverage on the entire scene.-
  6. Let's believe for a moment that Forsaken was lacking knowledge, “not aware” of Steam ToS, should we believe that he somehow single handedly managed to find out a 'technicality', reach out to ESIC and have a conversation with the commissioner Ian Smith and was able to get his ban reduced, by exploiting that loophole? This had to have been a coordinated effort among the agencies involved to some extent. And, "appealing" for a ban reduction has way more chances of being successful, because of the common thread that links all these organizations involved - ESL, ESL India, Nodwin, AFKgaming, Sostronk and even ESIC, either through investments or partnerships. In fact, the owner of Nodwin gaming group - Akshat Rathee, has even gone on record calling India as a "monopoly".
  7. Sostronk's FoundeCEO Prashant 'aequitas' Prabhakar's hands-on involvement in the Optic India project along with afkgaming, also brings forth the possibility that there existed scope for misuse of power and a case for conflict of interest. Since he is involved in quite a few facets of the CSGO esports routine in India, eg. He is also the coach of Entity gaming, A former sponsor for Brutality etc. Interestingly, Marzil, another player from Entity and former teammate of Prashant, who decided to leave Entity when 'Optic India' tryouts were announced and got selected to play on Optic India. He (marzil) has also been a staunch defender of Forsaken in the past on their esl/sostronk facebook group in the midst of accusations.-
  8. Recently, Prashant also informed the community that, "As an observeanalyst/coach/ex-pro who has competed in many international scenes I can confirm one thing that Optic still played the 'best' counter-strike this scene has seen to date." [screenshot] I have not been able to find information that is in public domain about his former career in “multiple” international scenes. Also, bulk of the pro players have outright denied the latter half of his statement above, because in most of the matches it boiled down Forsaken “clutching” 2-3 rounds and putting things in their favor by accumulating advantages.
  9. Hypothetically, Someone who is a part of multiple power structures and control mechanisms in the Indian esports scene, can easily override alternative point of views and claims, even when they have been substantiated. Case in point: dozens of reports people on Forsaken's "fishy" plays. His perennial smarter-than-thou-all responses in midst of this debacle, haven't made things any better either. There is way too much conflict of interest written all over this.
  10. Things also might have been compounded by the fact that SoStronk might have chosen not to investigate further believing "the "struggle of forsaken" narrative that was sold to them by the player. Maybe, Prashant/Aequitas believed that someone who was performing so much better that the rest of the competition in the country on HIS pugging client, with their latest and greatest Anti-Cheat - 'Odin', that they developed in-house, is impeccable and 'the haters just hate cuz they ain't that great'. This is further supported in the way SoStronk employees went on limb, ignoring any consequences whatsoever (cuz you get to do that when you are a part of a monopoly), to support a player accused multiple times of hacking so that they could paint a powerful "Slumdog to 'Prodigy' - powered by sostronk" narrative.
  11. Some players have even said, and this is unconfirmed, that the owner of sostronk and the chief overseer of Optic India tryouts - Aequitas also paid for Forsaken's travel and stay expenses to the try outs in Bangalore. There are some other allegations where Forsaken was allowed to play with his Laptop, which Sostronk’s Anish Nemz has denied, in a long obtuse post which was not well received by anyone in the community. Also from the same post is this poison pill by the means of which they try to instigate the community to “fight back”(?) and take a look at "the damage that’s coming from within” (? Self-referential probably).
  12. Another big mystery in many ways is, For example, If I was building an all new CSGO team from India in partnership with someone globally renowned, like Fnatic for example, my first and foremost priority is going to be to protect the integrity of the brand that has put it’s trust in the scene and in my capabilities. Clean players. That means that even a sniffle or sneeze of ‘hacking’ and I would have 100% deleted that player from the list of players to even be considered. Because being bad at the game is better + 100x acceptable than being a fraud and a cheat, which spells long term negative implications for EVERYONE involved and the entire Indian esports scene itself. In this case, the complete opposite seems to have happened. The community kept bringing it up, but somehow he seemed to know what was best. Curiously enough, when ESIC reduced the ban sentence from 2 years to 6 months. Out of the people mentioned in the thank you note at the end from Forsaken, one of them is the ESL commentator and former sostronk employee Archisman Pradhan, and another one is Akshay ‘Aks’ Singh who also happens to be a former sostronk employee, who went on to become the manager of his friend (and former teammate) Forsaken’s team, Optic India. Even after becoming the manager, he still refused to entertain the accusations, even from their coach turned IGL - Lukas “yb” Gröning. From the article that has already gone live with this information yesterday on VPesports: "The OpTic India coach, later turned in-game leader, Lukas “yb” Gröning made a comment and ultimatum to Optic management: either you kick him or I will not play with the team anymore."
  13. In India, the rules around naming a brand, organization or a company in a way to include the country's name, "India" or "Bharat" are very strict. You have to fulfill certain conditions of capitalization and have special permissions from the central government in order to be able to use those terms as a part of a private entity, whether for profit or non-profit.The arrangement between Optic (Infinite Esports and Entertainment), AFKGaming and Sostronk is unclear, in terms of incorporation and registration. This could potentially be an actionable offense if the prerequisite conditions weren't fulfilled. Using "OpTic India" for their team name surely attracts more attention after this incident than “OpTic Academy” etc. Media outlets that rarely run gaming news, apart from the outright negative ones, were drawn to this news partly because of this reason. Optic, Infinite esports and entertainment should provide more insight into this. Legal oversight is also needed to understand if this was a legally questionable move. -
In closing, I just want to say that this has been a massive let down for the Indian esports community. This was 100% preventable with proper oversight and skilled admins who should've been unbiased and neutral. It's an utter shame that they weren't able to do more despite being fully equipped with all the hardware and required resources. We’re talking about companies that have supposedly received multi-million dollar evaluations and plenty of funding to go with. They can go on retrieving data from all the PCs Forsaken has ever touched, adding more evidence and only making the case against themselves stronger - that they failed to even take cognizance let alone scrutinize the complaints and reports against Forsaken. I don't know another series of paid-media PR drives announcing millions of dollars "to be invested in Indian esports" can make the scene fully recover after such an ugly catastrophe.
In this whole process, they’ve made India look like the most carelessly run “monopoly” that produced such a unique ”prodigy” in 20 FUCKING 18.
--
If you are a player, community member or a fan, and if you’ve been told that criticizing Sostronk, ESL, AFK will destroy the scene. You've been misinformed. It is these same companies, that are complicit in this national shame, that will tell you how everyone else is hater or doing this for cheap likes and retweets. It’s also convenient for them because they’ve built each other up as this one incestuous family, and in the process managed to eliminate other voices that once cared about the scene.
--
Don’t worry so much about the “scene” just because someone tells you to, it’ll exist as long as people run ‘csgo.exe’ instead of ‘word.exe.’

2018.05.31 11:34 AGOTFAN SPOILER - One of the best possible explanations about the state of Star Wars movies and Solo

I find that this article from Washington Post is among the most even-handed discussion to explain Solo flop.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/act-fouwp/2018/05/30/star-wars-is-faltering-because-it-is-obsessed-with-its-past/
This post mentions plot points about “Solo: A Star Wars Story” — including a surprise cameo near the end of the film.
“Solo: A Star Wars Story” bombed at the box office this weekend. Despite okay reviews (70 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and an acceptable reception from audiences (A-minus Cinemascore rating), “Solo” grossed just less than $85 million domestically over its first three days (almost 10 percent worse than the opening frame for mega-bomb “Justice League”) and around $173 million worldwide over its first four days.
This is very, very bad!
The question, then, is why did audiences stay away? Is it because “Solo” starred a man? Or, gasp, a generic white man? I suppose that’s possible! Though “Deadpool 2” and “Avengers: Infinity War” (the third- and second-highest-grossing films of the year domestically, respectively) suggest that’s probably not the case. Let’s wait and see how “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” starring Chris Pratt, does before we make that call.
Release date has to be partly to blame: Why Disney decided to release this six months after “The Last Jedi,” and move away from the one-movie-every-December strategy that has worked so well thus far is a mystery, given the much fiercer competition for May box-office dollars. But Marvel movies seem to be holding up fine despite there having been three offerings with the Marvel logo released between mid-February and mid-May: The three top the domestic box-office chart for this year. So it does not appear to be a saturation issue.
It seems to be more specifically a “Star Wars” problem. I don’t necessarily buy the idea that audiences stayed away because “The Last Jedi” “ruined” their beloved characters, though I think the high-handed dismissiveness toward the concerns of these fans was more likely a damper on the box office than the suggestion that the series has gotten too “social justicey.” This is the flipside of the “too many white dudes” theory, and both strike me as silly.
So what is the problem with “Star Wars,” then? Why did “The Last Jedi” fail to meet expectations? Why is “Solo” cratering so drastically? Why does the franchise appear to be on a downward slope even as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, another Disney project, continues to rack up massive figures?
Allow me to suggest that the Disney-backed Star Wars films are simply too backwards looking, too focused on the past, too wrapped up in their own sense of nostalgia to continue appealing to audiences. Thus far the films have: remixed “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope” with fanfic flair in service of a soft reboot; told the story of the effort to get the Death Star’s plans, thus turning a line of dialogue in the original film into a full feature; spent “The Last Jedi” undoing everything from “The Force Awakens” while also reducing the Resistance to sub-Rebellion size in order to recreate the sense from Episode IV that our heroes are truly underdogs; and, finally, spent two hours educating us about how Han Solo met Lando Calrissian and won the Millennium Falcon.
Meanwhile, we’ve been promised a whole trilogy of Solo films, been fed hints that a Boba Fett movie is in the works, and are eagerly awaiting a series from Jon Favreau set between “Return of the Jedi” and “The Force Awakens.” Oh, and then there are the constant rumors of an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie starring Ewan McGregor.
We are constantly looking backwards with these movies; Lawrence Kasdan said “Solo” received its green light after he explained the scene in which Han (Alden Ehrenreich) came up with his last name. Who could possibly care about this? When Darth Maul (Ray Park) showed up near the end of “Solo,” I was confused as to why he was alive (given that he was literally cut in half in “The Phantom Menace”) which in turn led to confusion about when, exactly, “Solo” was set.* It is sloppy nostalgia-based fan service such as these little snippets that is turning people off the series writ large.
Eventually someone will listen to Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), the sole voice of reason in this whole blasted galaxy: “Let the past die. Kill it, if you have to.” I have my issues with the Marvel movies, but the folks in charge over there have the right idea: each movie progresses the overall story; each feature furthers the ball down field a bit. They spent 10 years building toward an epic crossover event, “Infinity War,” and it paid off handsomely.
With Star Wars, there’s no similar sense of forward momentum. We jerk back and forth in time, retreating to stories we already know the resolution of even as the trilogy nominally moving everything forward seem mired in the past. Nostalgia is a potent drug, as the $2 billion box-office haul for “The Force Awakens” demonstrated. But it’s also one you build up a tolerance to rather quickly.

2018.04.18 22:33 DriftHouse Nixon is about to release a timepiece that’s worthy of clocking the Kessel Run.

Ever wonder why Jabba had a bounty on Han Solo’s head? You know, the whole smuggling debacle that landed Han in a brick of carbonite?
Watches, dude.
Word has it the Hutt had one of the largest Nixon retailers on Tatooine. And while Jabba had his reservations about using the delivery services of a scruffy nerf herder for a pilot and a bucket of bolts for a shipping vessel, the price was too good to pass up.
We all remember the rest of the story… of course, until the part where Boba Fett recovered Jabba’s freight, loaded it up on Slave 1, and sold it off to a surf shop on Endor called Drift House.
Now, Nixon’s limited edition timepieces inspired by Luke Skywalker, Yoda, R2-D2, C-3PO, Rey, Han Solo, Boba Fett (Diplomatic limited to 100 pieces), the Storm Troopers (Diplomatic limited to 100 pieces), Darth Vader, the Praetorian Guards, Kylo Ren, and the Death Troopers are available for pre-order on Earth at Drift House (https://www.drifthouse.com/accessories/watches/nixon-x-star-wars/).
The ship date for select products is May the 4th (of course).
May the Force be with you.
Always.

2018.02.01 20:08 StuntedSlime Maiev Shadowsong – Abilities, Quotes, and Skins Lore

Hello, everyone!
With Maiev out on the PTR, here is the followup to my Maiev lore thread from last week, where I'll go through and explain the lore and various references found in her abilities and quotes. Blizzard have done a pretty good job with Maiev, and there are a ton of little nods and callbacks for WC3 and WoW fans alike to pick up on, so let's get started.
Maiev character lore thread
All previous "Lore of" episodes
Abilities
Maiev in Heroes of the Storm is based on the Warden, a hero unit for the night elf faction in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne.
Like most wardens and Watchers, Maiev wields a type of deadly circular glaive known as an umbra crescent.
Talents
Poke quotes
Warcraft III Maiev quotes
Warcraft III Warden quotes
I used to think justice was blind, and then I met Illidan. - "Justice is blind" is a saying referring to the ideal that justice should be neutral and impartial, as embodied by the blindfolded "Lady Justice". Demon hunters like Illidan ritualistically blind themselves to gain so-called "spectral sight", allowing them to perceive magical energies and see through walls and obstacles, though Illidan himself is a rather unique case since his eyes were instead burned out by the Dark Titan Sargeras.
I am vengeance. I am the night. I am a warden! - Reference to a famous line by the DC Comics superhero Batman, simply replacing the word "Batman" with "a warden" in the last sentence.
Nothing escapes my sight, not even when I Blink. - Unavoidable pun is unavoidable.
My umbra crescent is a formidable weapon, but my skills are what make me dangerous. A warden's true power comes from beyond the glaive! - Seems to just be a pun on the saying "beyond the grave" and the fact that Maiev's umbra crescent is a type of glaive.
I will never forgive Cordana for betraying us, but after dealing with Khadgar I can see why she lost her sanity. - Cordana Felsong was a Watcher in service to Maiev who accompanied the famed human archmage Khadgar on the alternate universe version of the planet Draenor during Warlords of Draenor. Cordana was eventually corrupted by the alternate universe's Gul'dan, becoming a servant of the Burning Legion and later aiding the demons in invading the Vault of the Wardens in Legion. When Khadgar met with Maiev to ask for her help in tracking Gul'dan between the events of Warlords and Legion, Maiev blamed Khadgar for Cordana's betrayal, citing the Watcher's reports of Khadgar being reckless, arrogant, imprecise, headstrong, and slow to accept advice. This quote likely also references the slightly more humorous status Khadgar gained in the WoW community during Warlords and Legion due to his eccentric behavior, habit of cracking puns, and tendency of sending players to gather excessively specific amounts of magical artifacts, which in turn has led to the creation of various community memes.
Like us wardens, owls are vigilant watchers and silent hunters. They're also quite good at delivering letters. Much better than ravens, anyway. - In Legion, the wardens frequently use owls as companions and scouts. This quote seemingly references the Harry Potter and A Song of Ice and Fire series, in which owls and ravens, respectively, are used to deliver letters.
I am NOTHING like Illidan! I merely do whatever is necessary to achieve my goals, even if it means making morally questionable decisions while growling about the hatred I felt for 10,000 years! - Despite the enmity between the two, Maiev and Illidan are rather similar in several regards, and characters like Akama have acknowledged that Maiev is oftentimes no better than Illidan.
Betraying the kaldorei? That's an imprisoning. Consorting with demons? That's an imprisoning. Consuming the Skull of Gul'dan and becoming a demon? Oh, you better believe that's an imprisoning! - These all describe acts committed by Illidan. This quote is a reference to a line spoken by Jasper Beardly in the twenty-first episode of season 6 of the American animated sitcom The Simpsons.
I have no idea where my brother Jarod went during his long exile! Am I my brother's keeper? No! I'm Illidan's keeper! - During the last stretch of the War of the Ancients, Maiev's younger brother Jarod led the mortal resistance forces to victory over the Burning Legion. After the war, Jarod vanished to an unknown location in self-imposed exile along with his lover and eventual wife Shalasyr due to being uncomfortable in the role of a war hero and due to growing disenchantment with post-war night elf society. More than 10,000 years later, specifically in the WoW novel Wolfheart, Jarod returned to his people after his wife Shalasyr fell ill (and eventually died before the night elves could save her). During their initial reunion, Maiev chastised her younger brother, seeing him as having abandoned the duty to his people.
Why, yes, I do know the secret behind the owl statues on the Isle of the Watchers. All wardens do. We just won't share it with you. - The Isle of the Watchers is a large island off the southern coast of Azsuna. It is the location for the Vault of the Wardens, and is also home to nine large, apparently warden-made "Owl of the Watcher" statues. The statues can be interacted with by clicking on them, but most of the time nothing happens, while other times a generic error message pops up or the player character is given a seemingly random temporary buff. Naturally, this has led to a lot of player speculation about the statues' purpose, with some speculating that they're part of some hidden puzzle (numerous others of which have been discovered throughout the course of Legion). I'll admit I have not been keeping up to date with a lot of Legion content at all, so I don't actually know what the current consensus on the statue mystery is, but judging by this quote it seems that it has yet to be figured out by the playerbase.
A pristine Core Hound Tooth, a custom-forged Perdition's Blade, and of course a sharpened Shard of Azzinoth. My dagger collection is quite extensive. That's because I'm a Fan of Knives. - This pun is so stupid but it makes me grin every time regardless. To explain a bit more, Core Hound Tooth, Perdition's Blade, and Shard of Azzinoth are the names of three iconic dagger items from World of Warcraft: Core Hound Tooth (named after core hounds, a type of two-headed elemental lava monsters) can be looted after defeating Majordomo Executus in the Molten Core raid in classic WoW, while Perdition's Blade can be looted from Molten Core's final boss, Ragnaros himself. The Shard of Azzinoth (apparently a fragment of Illidan's weapons, the Twin Blades of Azzinoth) can be looted from Illidan in the Black Temple in The Burning Crusade.
So I murdered a few Highborne, tried to kill Malfurion, and fled Darnassus as a wanted fugitive. Can't you just drop it and move on? Everyone else has. - This is a description of the events of the novel Wolfheart, in which Maiev seemingly goes completely insane, kills several innocent Highborne (night elf mages once part of the uppermost caste of ancient society, exiled after the War of the Ancients but recently let back into night elf society), tries to kill Malfurion due to having become convinced that he's no better than his brother, and is ultimately forced to flee from the night elf capital of Darnassus after being fought off by her younger brother Jarod. This quote lampshades the fact that Blizzard so far seems content to pretend like the events of the novel never happened; despite Maiev's significant role in Legion, the only time her Darnassian murder spree is mentioned is during a quest line in which players help Jarod find and rescue Maiev, with Jarod claiming that he knows Maiev wouldn't have committed the murders unless she was under some corrupt influence.
What do you mean I'm obsessed with Illidan? It's not like I think about him every day and every night, picturing his smug grin as I sharpen my glaive, imagining how it would feel when I plunge it into his chest right between those big, disgusting tattoos, leaning in close to watch the light fade from his eyes... Oh, I'm sorry, what were you saying? - I'll let this one speak for itself.
You're still talking to me?! At least give me a cough drop, you monster! - Given her raspy voice, Maiev could probably benefit from some cough medicine.
Interaction quotes
(Generic) Maiev: "Today, justice will be done!" - A line yelled by Maiev when she appears at the Black Temple to aid player characters against Illidan at the Black Temple in The Burning Crusade.
(To demon hunters) Maiev: "Illidari, while you caper about, I shall see to the real work." - Maiev fought against Illidan and his Illidari demon hunter followers until she defeated them and had them imprisoned in the Vault of the Wardens. Years later, she was forced to release them and relucantly work alongside them against the Burning Legion. This quote is specifically a callback to the WoW quest "Assault on Broken Shore", in which Maiev says "Illidan, how courteous of you to finally arrive! Wardens, see to the real work while Illidan's demon hunters caper about their bats" after Illidan arrives to the battle against the Legion at the Broken Shore.
(To demon hunters) Maiev: "I would do anything to save Azeroth, even if it means releasing you." - A direct quote from the Legion cutscene in which Maiev shatters the prison of the demon hunter player character.
(To druids) Maiev: "Your aid is most welcome, druid." - Several night elf druids loyal to the Watchers aided Maiev in her search for Illidan across Azeroth and Outland, including one named Sarius.
(To druids) Maiev: "Good to see you're awake for this fight." - After the War of the Ancients, night elf druids (who were at the time exclusively male) would hibernate for centuries at a time so that their spirits could navigate the mystical dimension known as the Emerald Dream.
Maiev: "The foul menace you serve will never conquer Azeroth, warlock!" Gul'dan: "[laughs] Such delusion." - Gul'dan is a servant of the demonic Burning Legion, which has tried and failed to conquer Azeroth numerous times.
Gul'dan: "An eternity of darkness awaits those who challenge me." Maiev: "I've seen how you die, Gul'dan — betrayed and desperate. You deserve nothing less." - At the end of the Second War, Gul'dan and his followers ventured into the Tomb of Sargeras in search of the demonic power therein, specifically the artifact called the Eye of sargeras. However, the orcs were attacked by the tomb's demonic guardians, and in the end all of Gul'dan's followers fled or died, leaving him to try to reach the chamber containing the Eye on his own, desperate and bleeding, until he was finally torn apart by the demons as well. Gul'dan left several orcish runes on the walls of the tomb to log his journey, and when Maiev years later visited the tomb she learned of Gul'dan's final moments from these runes.
(To Horde characters) Maiev: "The Horde? Must I ally with such filth?" / "When this is over, I will see your kind purged from Ashenvale!" - The Horde, one of the two major factions in the Warcraft universe and the enemy of the Alliance of which the night elves are members, have long fought against the kaldorei, particularly in a campaign to claim the vast lumber reserves of the night elves' ancestral home of Ashenvale Forest.
Maiev has spent most of her life as either jailor or hunter of the Betrayer, Illidan Stormrage. After he betrayed the night elves by creating a second Well of Eternity after the War of the Ancients, Illidan was sealed in a prison in the Barrow Deeps below Mount Hyjal, with Maiev volunteering to serve as his warden and founding an order called the Watchers to stand guard over his prison. During the Third War, Illidan was freed by Tyrande Whisperwind, and for years Maiev pursued him throughout Azeroth and Outland to recapture or kill him, eventually defeating him at the Black Temple with the aid of WoW player characters and storing his corpse in the Vault of the Wardens. Illidan's body was later stolen by the Burning Legion, but after he was resurrected Maiev was forced to work alongside him against the Legion at the Broken Shore and in the Tomb of Sargeras. I don't have much to say about the following five interactions between Illidan and Maiev, since they all pretty much convey the same thing, so I'll mostly just let them speak for themselves.
Maiev: "Illidan, I will hunt you down for as long as I live!" Illidan: "Then, for your sake, I hope you die."
Maiev: "Did you really think you could elude me, Illidan? Run again, and I'll shackle you like the beast you are!" Illidan: "Just be glad I have no plans to kill you... yet." / Illidan: "Are you ready for the hunt to begin?" Maiev: "Forgive me if my glaive finds your heart, Illidan. It's hard to distinguish you from the rest of this filth." - References to the banter between Illidan and Maiev in the Cathedral of Eternal Night dungeon in Legion.
Illidan: "Can you put aside your anger, warden?" Maiev: "Can you put aside your arrogance, Betrayer?"
Illidan: "Can you put aside your anger, warden?" Maiev: "I don't know, can you put on a shirt? It's distracting." - ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Maiev: "Allying with Illidan... I always knew you couldn't be trusted, Kael'thas!" Kael'thas: "Let's get this over with." / Kael'thas: "I see, it is you." Maiev: "Yes, ME, the one who saved your wretched life back in Lordaeron." - While searching for Illidan in the undead-ravaged land of Lordaeron, Maiev and Tyrande came across Kael'thas and his force of blood elves, who were being constantly assailed by the undead Scourge. In exchange for the night elves' aid against the Scourge, Kael and his forces helped them hunt down and ultimately defeat Illidan. Much later, however, racist treatment from their Alliance brethren, particularly the human commander Othmar Garithos, caused the blood elves to seek out and join forces with Illidan in the shattered world of Outland, fighting alongside Illidan's naga to liberate the Betrayer from Maiev. Logically, Maiev viewed the blood elves' actions as a betrayal.
Maiev: "I see you, too, thirst for vengeance. We will claim it together!" Kerrigan: "Let's go tear them apart." - Kerrigan long pursued vengeance against the terran emperor Arcturus Mengsk, the man who betrayed her by leaving her for the zerg and causing her to be transformed into the Queen of Blades.
Maiev: "Malfurion! I thought I smelled the stench of cowardice." Malfurion: "Let's get moving. There's time for us to hate each other later." / Malfurion: "Hrm... fate has chosen to be unkind to me this day." Maiev: "A true shan'do would forge their own fate." - Maiev originally deeply respected Malfurion, but she eventually came to hate him instead, believing him to be as arrogant as his brother Illidan, resenting him for choosing not to ask the Dragon Aspects to bless the World Tree Nordrassil and renew the night elves' immortality, and despising his decision to allow the Highborne back into night elf society. Maiev eventually tried to kill Malfurion, but the attempt was thwarted by her brother Jarod. Shan'do is a night elf honorific that translates to "honored teacher". Malfurion is often referred to as "Shan'do Stormrage", particularly by Maiev in WC3.
(To mages) Maiev: "Sorcerers! I detest your kind, but you do have your uses." / "The arcane is responsible only for ruin! Misuse it, and I will show you no mercy." - Maiev has an intense hatred of arcane magic, having seen the chaos it could wreak when the Highborne sorcerers drew the Burning Legion to Azeroth and caused the War of the Ancients. During the events of the novel Wolfheart, this distaste manifested in Maiev murdering a number of innocent Highborne that had recently been let back into night elf society.
(To Murky) Maiev: "Where's Murgulis?!" / "Where's Murkidan?!" - Murgulis and Murkidan are two murloc demon hunters from World of Warcraft. Murkidan is a baby murloc in-game pet that was given out during BlizzCon 2015. Just like how most BlizzCon pets are themed after something relevant to their year's BlizzCon, Murkidan is a murloc demon hunter themed after Illidan Stormrage, who was at the forefront of the World of Warcraft: Legion expansion that had been announced at Gamescom earlier that year. Murgulis, on the other hand, is a murloc demon hunter who appears in patch 7.2 of Legion. He uses the same model as Murkidan and helps players defend the zone of Stormheim on the Broken Isles when it is occasionally invaded by the Burning Legion.
Maiev: "Your armor is your prison? Is that what passes for justice among your people? Pathetic." Tychus: "Yeah, I can't believe it either." / Tychus: "I can't believe I got stuck babysittin' you." Maiev: "Watch your tongue, convict, or I'll throw you back into prison myself." - For his numerous crimes, Tychus was initially given a life sentence and placed in cryogenic stasis by the Terran Confederacy, but years later he was freed and outfitted with his old armor by Arcturus Mengsk, who tasked him with killing Sarah Kerrigan in exchange for freedom. However, as part of this deal, Tychus was unable to remove his armor, essentially making it his prison, and if he disobeyed orders the suit was wired to shut down his vital organs.
Maiev: "Are you prepared to deliver justice to this realm?" Tyrael: "I am justice itself." / Tyrael: "No evil shall escape our sight." Maiev: "The Archangel of Justice! It is an honor to fight beside you." - Maiev is very fixated on the idea of meeting out "justice". Tyrael, being the Archangel of Justice, is the very embodiment of the concept.
Maiev: "The traitor Tyrande. You belong in a cell no less than Illidan!" Tyrande: "We remain allied through convenience. Do not make it... inconvenient." / Tyrande: "[sigh] The goddess seems to be testing my resolve." Maiev: "Like she tested mine while you murdered my sisters?!" - As the head of night elf government, Tyrande was the one that Maiev's Watchers answered to directly. During the Third War, Tyrande decided to release Illidan from his prison so that he could aid against the Burning Legion, but when the Watchers refused, Tyrande killed many of them. As might be expected, Maiev was outraged, and when Malfurion and Tyrande later came to the warden's aid against Illidan on the Broken Isles, Maiev told Tyrande that "It is you who should be locked in a cage".
Maiev: "A demon hunter, are you? Hm. Your brand of demon hunting, I can accept." Valla: "Come, let's join the hunt." - Warcraft and Diablo demon hunters are similar in many aspects, with both being vigilantes that dedicate themselves entirely to hunting demonkind, often due to having suffered personal losses at the hands of invading demons, and who are often shunned by the societies they try to protect. However, while Diablo demon hunters do use some shadow magic, they mostly focus on ranged weaponry and don't use the demons' own powers against them, unlike Warcraft demon hunters, so I guess that makes them more acceptable in Maiev's eyes.
Kill quotes
Generic: "Justice is mine!" - This is Maiev's attack quote in Hearthstone.
Demon: "A fitting end to a vile invader." - Demons have launched large-scale invasions of Azeroth three times, and each time they've been beaten back by Azeroth's mortal defenders; the first two times, the night elves played particularly vital roles in their defeat.
Gul'dan: "I'm keeping your Shadow Orb!" - Gul'dan wielded an artifact called the Shadow Orb, which shattered into several fragments when he died in the Tomb of Sargeras. Years later, Maiev gathered and reassembled the fragments of the orb to aid in her battles against Illidan's forces. In Heroes of the Storm, the artifact is the basis for Maiev's level 20 talents (see above).
Highborne: "Traitorous scum, I'll wipe you all out." - The Highborne were originally the upper classes of ancient night elf society. They caused the War of the Ancients by luring the Burning Legion to Azeroth and opening the way for the Legion in exchange for promises of power. After the War of the Ancients, some groups of Highborne went into exile, with one group later being allowed to rejoin night elf society during the events of Wolfheart. Maiev was outraged and murdered several Highborne until she was stopped by Malfurion and Jarod.
Illidan: "My long hunt is finally over." - A quote spoken by Maiev when she first appears to fight Illidan at the Black Temple.
Illidan: "I feel nothing. I am nothing." / Illidan: "Hmm. I thought that would be more satisfying." - With the help of WoW player characters, Maiev managed to kill Illidan, but with his dying breath he told her that the huntress was nothing without the hunt; that Maiev was nothing without Illidan. Maiev realized the truth in his words, stating "He's right. I feel nothing... I am... nothing".
Kael'thas: "You should have kept your mouth shut!" / Tyrande: "This time, you really are dead." - I'll explain both of these at the same time to avoid repeating myself too much. While searching for Illidan in Lordaeron, Maiev and Tyrande encountered and began aiding Kael'thas and his blood elves against the undead Scourge in exchange for Kael aiding in the hunt for Illidan. At one point, the group was ambushed by a large force of undead, and Tyrande offered to stay behind and hold a nearby bridge while Maiev and the blood elves moved to the safety of the other side. While Tyrande did managed to hold the undead off, the bridge eventually collapsed under her and sent her sweeping downriver towards Scourge territory. Kael wanted to try rescuing her, but Maiev convinced him to move on to search for Illidan. Later, Maiev lied to Malfurion that Tyrande had been torn apart in order to motivate him to strike at Illidan instead of "wasting" time searching for Tyrande. After Illidan was defeated, Malfurion accused him of being responsible for Tyrande's death, but Kael'thas spoke up and revealed that the priestess might still be alive, despite Maiev telling him to be quiet. This caused Malfurion to turn against Maiev and join forces with Illidan to find and rescue the still living Tyrande from the undead.
Mage: "The only good mage is a dead mage." - As previously mentioned, Maiev has an obsessive hatred of mages and their use of arcane magic, particularly Highborne.
Malfurion: "THAT was for the good of the kaldorei!" - Another reference to the events of Wolfheart.
Naga: "You are an affront to everything the night elves stand for!" - The naga were originally night elves, specifically members of Queen Azshara's court of Highborne, transformed into aquatic, serpent-like beings by the malefic Old Gods after the War of the Ancients. Millennia later, a group of naga led by Lady Vashj joined forces with Illidan and repeatedly fought against Maiev and her Watchers. This quote is specifically a callback to the WC3:TFT mission "The Search for Illidan", in which Vashj's naga and Kael'thas' blood elves (another race descended from the Highborne) fight to liberate the captured Illidan from Maiev's forces. During the mission, Maiev will occasionally yell "Blood elves and naga! Your bastard races are an affront to everything the night elves stand for!"
Valla: "Hmm... wrong demon hunter." - As previously mentioned, Warcraft and Diablo demon hunters are similar in some regards but are fundamentally different in their methods.
Zeratul: "I know all your tricks, Zeratul!" - A reference to the fact that all of the WC3 Warden's non-Ultimate abilities function extremely similarly to Zeratul's basic abilities in Heroes of the Storm: there's a point-blank damage AoE (Fan of Knives/Cleave), a ranged single-target spell that damages and slows an enemy (Shadow Strike/Singularity Spike), and an instant short-range teleport (Blink/Blink). WC3 Maiev having the same kit as Zeratul was commonly brought up as a concern among the playerbase whenever Maiev was discussed as a potential Heroes of the Storm character. In the end, Blizzard did end up incorporating several of the WC3 Warden's abilities into Maiev's Heroes kit, albeit with heavily altered functionalities to avoid overlap with Zeratul.
Killing Maiev quotes
Illidan: "You have failed, warden." - Yup.
Other quotes
Abandon hope! (Warden's Cage) / None shall flee my grasp! (unknown) - References to Maiev's Hearthstone hero trailer.
Ashal theridas! (Containment Disc) - WC3 attack quote. While clearly an example of Darnassian, the night elf language, Blizzard hasn't provided an official translation for this quote. This transcription may or may not be inaccurate, as well.
Bleed as I have bled! (attack) / There shall be no prison for you this time! (voice line) - Quotes yelled by Maiev while fighting against Illidan at the Black Temple.
Enough of this! The hunt awaits! / Illidan is out there somewhere. / We must hurry! I have no time for idle nonsense! / We're wasting time here. (shop) - References to some of Maiev's WC3 select quotes.
For the Watchers! (attack) - WC3 attack quote.
Heal yourself! You're no good to me dead. (a nearby ally is low on health) - Possibly a reference to a similar line said by Boba Fett in the 1980 film Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and which is also referenced by one of the WC3 Wardens' poke quotes: "He's no good to me dead". Like Boba Fett, night elf wardens often serve as bounty hunters, hence the reference.
I am the iron hand of justice! (Containment Disc) - A WC3 Warden select quote. WC3 Maiev has a similar line, stating "I am the hand of justice" when resurrected at an altar. In Hearthstone, Maiev speaks the "iron hand" line at the start of a match if both players are using Maiev as their hero.
I am vengeance itself. / I am forever bound to the hunt! (shop) - During the WC3:TFT cutscene "A Parting of Ways", Malfurion tells Tyrande that Maiev "has become vengeance itself, bound forever to the hunt".
I hold you in contempt! (voice line) - WC3 Warden poke quote.
I sentence you to death! / I will be your executioner! (attack) - One of the WC3 Wardens' poke quotes is "I shall be your executioner". In the ending cutscene of the WC3:TFT mission "The Ruins of Dalaran", Maiev sentences the defeated Illidan to death and declares that she will execute him herself (though of course this doesn't end up happening).
Let the hunt begin. (move) - WC3 Warden move quote.
Meet your end! (attack) - During the The Burning Crusade quest "A Distraction for Akama", Maiev yells "Meet your end, demon!" when she attacks the demons guarding the front of the Black Temple.
Now is the time. / The guilty will suffer. (move) - WC3 move quotes.
Swear to me! (voice line) - Probably another Batman reference, specifically this scene from the 2005 film Batman Begins.
Swiftly. (move) - Maiev says this in Hearthstone when the player's turn timer is about to run out.
This will be your prison! (Containment Disc) - Likely a reference to the Legion cutscene in which Maiev imprisons Illidan's demon hunters and tells them that "You bear the mark of his corruption. And so, the demon's blood within you... will be your prison!"
Tor ilisar'thera'nal! (Warden's Cage) - An ancient Darnassian war cry which translates to "Let our enemies beware!". This is also Maiev's "warcry" quote in WC3 (that is, an attack quote which has a small chance to play when she's ordered to attack an enemy hero unit).
Where's Illidan? (voice line) - A direct quote of the flavor text on Maiev Shadowsong's Silver Coin, one of various coins that can be fished up by players from a wishing fountain in the city of Dalaran.
Where the hell are our reinforcements?! (ping) - Another quote from the "Assault on Broken Shore" quest in Legion.
You incur my wrath! (attack) - Threaten emote from Hearthstone.
You will be avenged! I swear it! - Maiev says this in the WC3:TFT mission "The Tomb of Sargeras" when Illidan uses the Eye of Sargeras to bury her Watchers (including Naisha) alive and allowing only Maiev to escape.
Announcer quotes
Justice has come! (hero killed) - WC3 Warden warcry quote.
Justice will be done! (start of match) - One of Maiev's select quotes from WC3.
Skins
Maiev's base model features several differences from her canonical appearance. Her hair is purple, reflecting its appearance in WC3, rather than the white it's been depicted as in every other appearance Maiev has made post-WC3. The "crescent" shape behind her head is a single metal piece located behind her shoulders instead of being two separate blades attached to her shoulderpads like it's usually depicted. Finally, her cloak is lacking its iconic metal blades, which I imagine is probably due to limitations on how many polygons basic hero models can use.
Miscellaenous
And that's all for this week. As always, all feedback and suggestions are appreciated. I unfortunately ended up having to cut some content due to nearly exceeding Reddit's character limit, but that's how it is with lore-heavy characters like this, I guess. Next week I'm thinking of tackling Uther the Lightbringer, so see you all for that!

2017.05.30 18:35 atheistpiece /r/comiccon San Diego Comic Con Survival Guide

Brace yourselves, Comic Con is coming.
San Diego Comic Con, where nerds, geeks, writers, artists, movie and TV stars and everyone in between flock to downtown San Diego for four days (or five if you are lucky enough to get preview night passes) to get their geek on in the best way possible.
San Diego Comic Con has been taking place since 1970, where it started as a small single day convention that attracted about 100 people. It has since grown into the largest convention of its kind, hosting more than 150,000 attendees.
At San Diego Comic Con, you can find everything your geeky heart could possibly desire; from rare silver age comics and collectibles, to cosplay, and movie and TV studios showing off their latest blockbuster films and shows, and we want to help prepare you to take it all in.

Essential items for the convention center

The actual convention center is where you will be spending most of your time. Whether it is waiting in lines to get into panels, waiting in lines to get special exclusive items, waiting in lines to get autographs, or waiting in line to… well, if you haven’t figured it out yet, there are a lot of lines. You’ll be spending a lot of time walking around, away from your hotel room, so we want to make sure you have all the essential items you’ll need.

Shoes

Leave your flip flops and stiletto heels at home, you’re going to be walking… a lot. Comfortable walking shoes are a must. In fact, it is probably the most important item in the list.
While we’re on the subject of feet, get some good athletic socks to go with your shoes. You’ll thank me later.

Backpack

You’ll want a good quality backpack. Not only will it be storing all your essential items, but it will also give you a place to store all the sweet swag you’ll be picking up.
You’ll want a backpack with good padding on the straps and decent airflow so your back isn’t a sweaty mess while wearing it. You’ll want a nice big main pocket and a few smaller pockets to store stuff, as well as a laptop sleeve/pocket to protect your laptop, tablet, or prints and comics.
Some people prefer messenger bags, but I strongly recommend a backpack instead. Under no circumstances should you bring a purse; it’s just not practical for a full day at the convention.
Warner Brothers also provides a giant backpack/tote bag to all attendees, so if you feel a backpack is too small, feel free to use the one provided. I’ll be honest though, it’s not very durable or comfortable, so feel free to shop around for something better.

Poster tube

Posters comprise at least 50% of the freebies given away at SDCC, so if you want to save them, you’re going to need a poster tube. Poster tubes come in a variety of sizes, but your best bet is buy a telescoping version of the poster tube. They usually cost about 20 bucks, but if you can’t find one before you arrive at SDCC, many vendors sell them.

Reusable water bottle

Stay hydrated! Being dehydrated leads to a whole bunch of other problems that will make your con experience much less fun. Fun fact: one year I was hospitalized due to dehydration after leaving the convention center. Ever since then, I’ve been bringing a bottle with me.
Watch out for these symptoms of dehydration:
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, make sure to take small sips of water (don’t chug) every couple of minutes till you feel normal again (of course don’t stop drinking afterwards, stay hydrated throughout the day).
Water bottles can be refilled at water fountains or dispensers inside panel rooms.

Autograph supplies

Always bring a black Sharpie, a silver Sharpie, and a pen . You never know who you’ll run into on the floor or in the hallways or in a elevator up to your room (I met Wil Wheaton one year when returning to my room). Being able to get an autograph works out best when you can provide the marker.
You’ll also want a notebook. Not only can you get autographs, but you can sometimes get people to sketch in them (sometimes free, sometimes not so free). You can also take notes, doodle, or maybe get the number of that cute boy or girl who you’ve been talking to all morning while waiting in line for Hall H.

Portable batteries

Your phone’s battery will die at some point throughout the day. You’re going to want to charge it. You can either camp out near an outlet, or charge it on the go with a portable battery.
I love FuelRod batteries. For 20 bucks, you get a compact 2600mAh battery, a usb to micro usb cable and two adapters (a lightning adapter and a 30 pin adapter for older iPhones). FuelRod has many kiosks located throughout the convention center where you can purchase a battery. The best part though, is once it’s dead, you can toss it back in a kiosk and get a fully charged battery back for free.

Snacks

I’ll be frank with you, the convention center food isn’t something you’ll want to resort to often. It’s expensive, doesn’t taste great, it’s terrible for your body, and the lines to get it are long. Save yourself some time and money and pack some snacks. My go to snacks are jerky, trail mix, applesauce, and protein bars.
There is a Ralph’s Supermarket in walking distance of the San Diego Convention Center (and a SDCC shuttle stops right in front) that usually has sales on snack items. You can also throw in some pieces of fruit and maybe a sandwich or two if you plan on eating it throughout the day.

Hygiene and body care supplies

Let’s be real honest with each other here; sometimes the people who go to comic conventions have terrible personal hygiene and completely stink up the joint. Don’t be one of those people. Get yourself the following items and use them as you need throughout the day:

Money

Bring cash with you to the convention center. A lot of vendors accept card, but not all of them do. Perhaps you find yourself staring down that vintage Boba Fett action figure and you decide that you need it. You wouldn’t want to have to run to an ATM and get charged a ton of fees or worse, not buy the action figure would you?

Your badge

Last but not least, do not forget to bring your badge with you each day.

Essential items for your hotel

Now that we’ve covered everything you should bring to the convention center every day, let’s go over what you should bring to your hotel room to make your stay a little more comfortable.

Toiletries

Toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, etc. You should know what you’ll need. All hotels provide shampoo, conditioner and soap so you shouldn’t need those, but feel free to pack some if you like.

Chargers

You’ll want to charge your devices while you sleep, so make sure you have them with you. Nothing is worse than getting to San Diego and realizing you have no way of powering your devices. Now you have to spend some of your Boba Fett money!

Power strip/multi outlet adapter

Being able to charge your phone, your laptop, and your portable battery without unplugging every lamp in the room is very nice. If you’re sharing the room with multiple people, I guarantee you’ll be the most popular if you bring a power strip.

Water

Get a case of water to throw in the mini fridge, having cold water at night is great, plus you need to stay hydrated to have a good time!

Pajamas

You'll want to be comfortable after a long day at the convention, so pack some PJs. Along with this, you should bring a pair of slippers or flip flops for walking around the hotel. You might want to get some ice or have a beer down at the hotel bar, and pulling out another pair of socks and putting on your shoes is a drag.

Pillow

Some may think this is optional, but believe me, it’s not. I hate hotel pillows and I suspect a lot of other people do as well. Being able to sleep on your own pillow will help you get a good night's rest so you can tackle the convention the next morning.

Food and drink

Like I said above, convention center food sucks. Avoid eating at the convention center if you can. Eat a nice breakfast in the morning and a nice dinner afterwards. Use your snacks as a lunch.
There are a number of great options in the downtown San Diego area, more than can be covered here, but these are my favorites:

Food

The Broken Yolk

Located on Sixth and J street, this restaurant is only a couple blocks from the convention center. They have traditional dine in service, but during the convention they also offer quick service grab and go breakfast burritos. The food is great and they go all out with the comic theme during SDCC. This is probably one of my favorite places to eat when I’m at the convention.

Starbucks

Starbucks offers much more than just coffee and tea and you can’t walk a half mile in any direction in downtown San Diego without running into one. They are fully stocked throughout the day so you can buy breakfast and lunch items to bring with you to the convention. Some locations are 24 hours and some aren’t so make sure you check google maps to find hours and locations closest to you.

Lucha Libre Taco Shop

This place serves the best California burrito I have ever had, and I've had many a California burrito to compare.
Located on Washington and San Diego ave, and about a block from the Washington trolley stop on the green line, you can’t go wrong getting something here. I’ll warn you, expect long lines. It is well worth the wait though.

Subway

There are plenty of Subway restaurants located throughout the downtown San Diego area, but the closest is located on Sixth and K street. Subway is quick, cheap, and offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. This location is also 24 hours, so you can get something at 6AM as you’re coming into the convention, or at 11PM when you’re leaving SDCC’s Masquerade. You can also call in your order to save time waiting in line.

Tin Fish

Located across the street from the convention center at the Gaslamp trolley stop, Tin Fish is a quick serve restaurant with decently cheap prices. It’s mostly seafood options, but they also offer items if (like me) you don’t like seafood. Bonus points for also offering a full bar!

Ciro’s Pizzeria

Located on Sixth and Market street, Ciro’s pizzeria is a staple of SDCC. Ciro’s sells pizza by the slice and offers a lunch special of 2 slices and drink for around $5. It’s quick, cheap, and tasty so if you are running low on time, this is a great option.

Fox Sports Bar and Grill

This is definitely the closest option, located at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel, Fox Sports Bar and Grill is a great place to get a meal or drinks. It offers meals in most price ranges, is right on the water for great views of the bay, and includes full bar. You can order your food to go, so you can get back into the action at the Convention or enjoy your food on the lawns and patios behind the convention center.

Drink

Tivoli Bar and Grill

Home to the Official Reddit /comiccon party for SDCC 2016 and located on Island and Sixth ave, has that dive feel but with a great atmosphere. Good drinks and decent prices.

Stone Brewing Tap Room

What trip to San Diego would be complete without grabbing a beer here? Located next to Petco Park on J and Seventh street, it is well worth the short walk from the convention center.

Monkey Paw Pub and Brewery

Located on F and 16th street, this is a decent walk from the convention center and trolley lines. It’s worth the drive though, as they offer a large selection of craft beers.

Knotty Barrel

This is a great place to wind down. Located on Market and Ninth street, this late nite gastropub is a great option to get some drinks and food after the convention doors have closed.
There are plenty of places to get something to eat and drink near the convention center, so feel free to explore a bit.
Bonus info: If you don’t want to eat out or are looking for more budget friendly options, swing by a grocery store and pick up supplies and store them in your hotel mini fridge. Several blocks from the convention center on First and Market street, you can find Ralph’s Supermarket. Aside from general grocery shopping, Ralph’s also offers a deli where you can order sandwiches to take with you. Don’t forget to bring your Ralph’s or Kroeger card to save some money.

Guide to panels (AKA waiting in line like a pro)

Without a doubt, the panels at San Diego Comic Con are the fan favorite. SDCC offers everything from major movie and TV studios previewing properties to artists, writers, and even fan meetups. While the lineup of panels changes every year, the lines and room numbers do not.
Panels offer everything from sneak peeks of movies and television shows, chances to get free prizes, Q&A with your favorite celebrities and industry insiders to fan sing-alongs for Buffy the Vampire Slayer (which I must say, is a great time).
The three largest rooms at the convention center, and as a result, the largest lines, are for Hall H, Ballroom 20, and room 6BCF. It is in these three rooms that the largest studios show off their latest lineup. Across the street at the Hilton, the Indigo room is the largest “off site” room available.
Let's dig in and show you how to survive the line so you can get a chance to see previews for the next season of Game of Thrones or Marvel Studios next big movie.
Panel room basics
If you are in any of the panel rooms, generally speaking all the above basic rules will apply. Whether it is Hall H or room 4.

Hall H

Hall H is the largest room that SDCC has to offer, holding about 6500 people. It hosts the biggest and most exciting panels at SDCC. Hall H is located on the east side of the convention center across the street from Petco Park. People start camping in the Hall H line days before the convention even starts for a chance to see the best that the studios have to offer.
Hall H works on a wristband system. Wrist bands are given out the day before for the first panel in color coded sections starting at roughly 9:30PM until 1AM and then again starting at around 5AM on the morning of the panel. The wristbands don’t guarantee you a seat in the room, so if you leave the line without having a buddy to hold your place, you’re going to have to go to the end of the line and wait. These wristbands are only good for the first panel of the day and afterwards it turns into a normal line like the other panels.
The Hall H line is completely outdoors. Part of it is covered with tenting, but if you aren’t in one of those sections, expect to have the sun beating down on you, so use sunscreen! If you are planning to camp out in the line, we recommend you bring a sleeping bag and a lightweight jacket. While San Diego isn’t the icy north of Winterfell, the nights can get cold. You’ll want to be warm and rested for the excitement you’ll be experiencing. A pillow is recommended as well (aren’t you glad you packed it now?).
You should also bring some form of entertainment. Your tablet, a book, some playing cards, etc. A small LED lantern is also recommended so that you can see what you’re doing during the evening. You’ll be surrounded by people also waiting, so feel free to strike up a conversation with your fellow line mates.
If you do decide to camp in line, you might get lucky. Often celebrities will come by the line and sign autographs, take pictures, and even bring donuts and coffee to the people waiting overnight.
In the morning when the convention is ready to open, you might want to consider reapplying your deodorant, chomping on some gum to freshen your breath, and if you have them, clean yourself with wet wipes. You’ll feel better and everyone around you will appreciate it.

Ballroom 20

As the second largest room at the convention center with about 4900 seats available, Ballroom 20 has the second-longest line. Located roughly in the center of the convention center on the second floor, the line for this room is partially inside the convention center.
The line winds from the east end of the convention center towards the west end, down stairs and switchbacks to the access roads below. Generally speaking, this is actually a fairly fast moving line once the panels start going. You can usually jump in line 2 to 3 hours before the panel you wish to see and still get a seat.
This line can be confusing because of how it snakes around the convention center so make sure you ask volunteers for help if you get lost. They’ll usually be directing traffic before you have a chance to need help, so keep your ears and eyes open.
Much like Hall H, people will camp out the night before for panels in Ballroom 20. This can cause some confusion because you can’t camp in the panel line for this room. If you wish to camp for this room, you’ll be outside of the convention center near Hall D in the general line. The general line is for everyone who wants to do something aside from Hall H in the convention center. This means you’ll be with people who want to run to the exhibit floor for exclusives and with people who want to be up front for panels. Make sure you talk to volunteers or security before you hop in the line to make sure you are where you need to be.
Much of the things said about waiting in the Hall H line apply to the Ballroom 20/General lines.

Room 6BCF

This is the third largest room at the San Diego Convention Center, holding roughly 2100 attendees. Located on the west side of the convention center, the line for this room actually starts in a hallway about halfway down the west side of the convention center on the second floor.
This room’s line has frequent line breaks, so pay attention when lining up. It is much like Ballroom 20’s line in that it is half inside and half outside. Ask volunteers for directions if you get lost trying to find the end of the line.
If you plan to camp for this room, which is not unheard of, you’ll be camping in the general line.

Indigo Ballroom

The Indigo Ballroom is located offsite at the Hilton across the street from the convention. It holds approximately 2600 people and is quickly becoming the new Ballroom 20.
The line for this room is almost completely outside, so make sure to bring lots of water and sunscreen or a hat.

The Rest

The rest of the panel rooms are fairly small, the largest being 6A which holds 1000 people and the smallest being room 4 which holds about 280 people. Sometimes there is a decent sized line, sometimes you can just walk right in. It all depends on the popularity of panel being shown. The lines for these rooms are all indoors. For a list of rooms and their capacities, click here
So now that we know how the panel rooms work and where the lines are, you need to plan accordingly to get in to you can see your favorites.
Right off the bat, you need to be realistic about how they work. If you camp in the Hall H line for a panel at 1030AM, you’re not going to be able to get into that other panel in Ballroom 20 at 12PM. CCI releases the schedule of panels about a week before the convention so make sure you map out which panels you need to see by clicking here. Plan your time out appropriately and expect to burn 2 to 3 hours waiting in line per panel (if they are in the larger rooms).
Some general tips for waiting in line for panels are:
Some panels offer Q&A sessions. Usually the lines form in the middle of the room, but to be honest, unless you’re towards the front of the Q&A line, you’re not going to get to ask a question, so move quickly when they announce they’ll be doing Q&A.
Here’s some tips to asking a good question:
Q&A sessions are your moment in the spotlight, make it a good moment!

Guide to the exhibit floor

If you’re not going to panels, you’ll be spending most of your time walking around the exhibit floor. It’s easily the most crowded and stress-inducing part of the convention, but also one of the most exciting.
On the exhibit floor you’ll find retailers with booths stuffed with things to buy, comic studios with elaborately designed sets, movie studios with interactive experiences you can walk through, small press booths, artists booths, and more. You can spend your whole day browsing the aisles and still only see half of what the exhibit floor has to offer.
The exhibit floor is easy to navigate; all the aisles are marked with section numbers that you can see hanging from the ceiling. Your program guide or Comic Con app will have a list of vendors and their booth number. Sections start with 100 on the west side of the convention center (in the direction of the Marriot hotel) and increment by 100 for each aisle all the way over to the east end of the convention center (in the direction of the Hilton hotel). So if you are looking for booth 1523, you go to aisle 1500 and start looking. Keep in mind though, if you are using the printed programming guide, vendors occasionally get moved to a different location, so the best way to keep up to date on where a vendor is, is by using the Comic Con app.
There is also a small press area, an area called Artists’ Alley, and a smaller area for fan club booths.
There are (more than) a few general rules to follow while on the exhibit floor and they are:
So with that out of the way, lets help you make the most of your time on the floor!
Much like panels, getting the most out of the floor takes some planning. Whether you just want to look around at all the cool booths, pick up exclusive items, bargain shop, or meet your favorite artists and writers, you’re going to need a game plan.

Exclusives

Getting exclusives, depending on what you want, can either be really easy or seem impossibly difficult. We’ll get the really easy stuff out of the way because all you’ll need to do is walk up to the booth and buy whatever it is that you want. These will usually be items from small press, independent publishing outfits or smaller retailers such as Skybound Entertainment, Thinkgeek, and Graphitti Designs. Generally speaking, you’ll have a relatively short wait in a line (if there is a wait at all).
Note on Graphitti Designs: Earlier in the day, they often have a large line, but towards the end of the day there is generally no line at all.
The fun really begins when you want to get something exclusive from the major retailers such as Mattel, Hasbro, or Funko. These retailers usually have a daily quota of items for sale and it is not unheard of to wait in line for more than a couple hours. Some retailers utilize a ticket drawing system and others just sell items to whomever manages to get in their line early enough.
If the retailer you are interested in does not use a ticket drawing system, you will want to wait in the general entrance line early before the convention opens and be prepared to briskly walk to the retailer of your choice once the floor has been opened to attendees. If you get in early enough, you’ll have a very good chance of not only waiting in a short line, but getting the item you want before it is sold out. Again, planning is very important here. Know where the retailer’s booth is located, where in the convention center you are entering, and which direction you need to walk. In other words, study the convention floor map.
If the exclusive you want is sold by a retailer that utilizes a ticket drawing system, you’ll need to line up in the Sails Pavilion. The Sails Pavilion is located on the second floor of the convention center, smack dab in the middle. It’s the big room covered by beige tenting. You can’t miss it when you are in the Sails Pavilion because you’ll have plenty of elbow room and personal space (unless you are in a line).
If you’re gunning for an exclusive line, you’ll need to camp out in the general line and when they start letting people in you will want to break off to the Sails Pavilion area and find the line of the retailer you are looking to purchase from. The general line is usually let in around 6AM, so be prepared to wake up early!
While this is in no way an exhaustive list, we’ll do our best to cover the major ticketed retailers and how their processes work.
Hasbro
Might as well start with the biggest one, right?
When you get in line, if you get in it early enough, you’ll be given a ticket with a time slot on it. This ticket allows you to wait in another line inside the exhibit hall and purchase items. The earlier your time slot, the better chance you have at getting the items you want. While in line you’ll be given an order form with prices, pictures, and updates on items if they are sold out.
Lego
At the Lego line, you’ll actually be drawing for a chance to get a ticket. Not everyone who waits in this line will be able to get something.
You’ll be hitting a button on a tablet and if you win, you get a ticket that allows you the purchase an item from the Lego booth that day. If you don’t win, you just wasted your morning camping in line. The Lego sets are pretty big ticket items though, so people are willing the risk the chance of not getting anything. It’s a 50/50 shot, so I hope you like gambling.
Funko
The Funko booth used to be the worst. Everything was a mess, no one knew what was going on and really, it was complete luck if you managed to get anything. There were many many complaints, and Funko decided to create a ticketed system.
Now their system is completely randomized. You’ll be drawing for a wristband with a time slot on it. The time slot is randomized so the first person in line could get a wristband with the last available time slot or they could get nothing or they could get the first time slot of the day.
Bandai
If you are lucky enough to get in line early enough to get a ticket for the Bandai booth, you’ll get tickets specific to the items you are looking to purchase. In past years, Bandai has also marked your badge to show which exclusives you’ve already purchased.

Autographs

Much like exclusives, getting autographs takes a little planning. Autographs come in three variants; Free, paid, and ticketed. So let’s help you start collecting signatures!
Plenty of artists and writers have booths in the small press or Artists’ Alley areas. If you look in your guide and notice that your favorite artist has a booth, simply walking up with your comic, print, or autograph notebook and asking for an autograph will usually result in an autograph.
It’s been my experience that comic writers and artists generally do not charge for autographs, but try to limit yourself to 1 or 2 items if you are going to get free autographs. If I’m handing over a stack of comics to get autographed, I’ll usually buy something. They’re taking the time to sign my mountain of stuff, so I want to support them so that next year I can have them sign another mountain of stuff. Sketches at the artist's booth will almost always cost some money. Depending on the popularity of the artist, this could be $20 for a quick pencil only sketch to $300 for a penciled, inked and colored drawing.
Publisher booths like Boom Studios, Image, and DC will have sessions where their featured artists and writers will sit down for about an hour and sign autographs for everyone in line. Usually the schedule of apperances is posted somewhere around the booth, so keep an eye out. You can usually do a search online as well for the major publisher’s schedules. You’ll probably need to show up about 45 minutes before the scheduled autograph session, so plan accordingly.
The next variant of autograph is the paid autograph. Generally speaking, these will come from current or former sci-fi and fantasy actors. You’ll find people like Lou Ferrigno, Gary Combs, and Alaina Huffman. Typically they’ll charge around $25 for an autographed picture and if you want to take a picture with them, with your phone or camera, that’ll cost extra.
Getting a paid autograph is as simple as walking up to their booth and laying down some cold hard cash.
The last type of autograph is the ticketed autograph. These will almost always be A-list celebrities, big time writers, or prolific artists. When it comes to these autograph sessions, you will almost never be able to take pictures, especially when it comes to the celebrity signings. Comic writers and artists will have prints to sign but you can also bring your own items. Try to limit it to 3 – 5 items though.
If the autograph session is a celebrity signing, you will more than likely not be able to bring anything to be signed. They usually provide a poster that you pass along to each person and they sign it. You get about 3 to 4 seconds per person and then you are shuffled off.
Remember everything you read about obtaining exclusives in the Sails Pavilion? Yeah, it all applies to ticketed autograph sessions. Most of the autograph session tickets are a 50/50 thing so you might get lucky or you might not. If you don’t get lucky and you were in line early enough, you could potentially get back in line and try again.

Bargain Shopping

If you’re at SDCC looking to get a good deal on non exclusive items, you’re probably going to be waiting till Sunday, so enjoy your other three days.
The best time to bargain hunt is about 2 hours before the convention closes on Sunday. Most vendors don't want to ship everything back to the warehouse because it ain’t cheap so they start slashing prices. It’s not unheard of to get 20 - 40 percent off the original price. You just need to be patient.
You also have the opportunity to haggle with vendors. Major vendors won’t haggle. The price is the price, take it or leave it. The best vendors to haggle with are the smaller vendors. The worst case scenario is that you walk away without a Darth Maul backpack. The best case is you get it for half the asking price, so it never hurts to ask “Is that the best you can do?” You need to be reasonable though. Besides, you can always find it on ebay in a week, if you really feel like you need it.

Freebies (AKA swag)

Who doesn’t love free stuff? Many booths offer some form of giveaway. Whether it is the Fox booth poster tubes, Marvel’s free for all where Shirts, action figures, and DVDs are tossed out to a mob of fans, or DC’s organized line of free comics and pins, you’ll want to keep your eyes and ears open for the announcement.
Sometimes it is quite easy to get freebies. In the case of small things like Comics and poster tubes, you just find the end of the line and step in if it isn’t capped.
Other booths have large unorganized crowds that they throw things into. Getting a free item from these booths is a bit more challenging and takes more luck than anything. Here are a few things you can do to make your odds better:

Tips and Tricks for moving around the Convention Center

Moving around the exhibit floor can present some interesting challenges. There are frequent detours, large crowds blocking aisles, cosplayers posing for pictures, and more. Moving from one end of the exhibit hall to the other is not as simple as walking in a straight line.
If you are just casually exploring, slowly walking from one aisle to the next without a care in the world just taking it at all, well… just keep doing that. I’ve got no tips for you. Enjoy!
Here’s how to best get around the hall with the least amount of traffic:
Hopefully we’ve given you the tools you need to make the most of your time at SDCC, so get out there and have fun!
We'll be releasing more guides leading up to SDCC, but until then, what are your tips?

Attack of the Fanboy - 3.5/5

Review
Author: William Schwartz
Beautiful but lacking, Star Wars: Battlefront will most certainly please Star Wars fans with incredible fan service from DICE. While it stacks up in terms of presentation to other contemporary shooters, Battlefront is an extraordinarily thin offering when it comes to content, making it less enjoyable the more you play it.

Aus Gamers - 9/10

Review
Author: NachosJustice
Star Wars Battlefront might not be terribly considerate of solo players and its by-design accessibility might deter DICE’s hardcore Battlefield fans, but there’s no denying the multiplayer is a hell of a lot of fun, and as far as creating the feeling of being part of a Star Wars movie, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Destructoid - 6/10

Review
Author: Chris Carter
Star Wars Battlefront feels authentic in many ways, but that authenticity is aggressively pursued at the cost of gameplay, and is often tacked-on. If you're in the mood for a relatively shallow shooter with caveats you likely won't be disappointed, but I wish that DICE had a little more time to polish it and add more substance.

Game Trailers - 8.1/10

Review
Author: Brandon Jones
At launch, there's not as much on offer compared to other competitive shooters, but there's also never been a Star Wars game that's looked and felt this real before. Despite the lack of battlegrounds, characters, and a story-driven, campaign structure, Star Wars Battlefront is an epic, cinematic experience. If you've felt the force awakening in you this year, let it in.

Games Radar - 4/5

Review
Author: Andy Hartup
This philosophy of getting players involved, and making your whole experience as hassle-free as possible, is the beating heart of Star Wars Battlefront. Rarely has any video game pushed pure, uncomplicated joy so forcefully to the fore. Sure, as a shooter, this can be rigidly simple at times, and does occasionally leave me yearning for something a little more complex and involving because I'm that guy who spent the rest of 2015 playing Destiny. As a wonderful recreation of some of my most cherished childhood fantasies (and you will feel the same, such is its universal appeal) Star Wars Battlefront is an absolute triumph.

Gamer Revolution - 3.5/5

Review
Author: Blake Peterson
Whether or not Star Wars: Battlefront is worth your dollar may depend on three things: how much you love Star Wars, how much you wanted this to be Battlefield with lasers instead of its own game, and how much you are willing to gamble on EA and DICE supporting it with enough additional DLC content to keep it continuously interesting moving forward. As an audio-visual spectacle it screams Star Wars, but it feels thin presently. Hopefully, with the Battle of Jakku content coming just a few weeks after launch, we’ll see what that support will look like in the near future. Right now, it’s bigger than life, feels good while you're enjoying it, but is somewhat disappointingly hollow.

Gamespot - 7/10

Review
Author: Mike Mahardy
But Battlefront doesn't go much deeper than its ambitious surface appeal. It front loads its best content, only to fade in quality as the hours roll by. Star Wars Battlefront's skin is beautiful, but its legs are shaking, and threaten to buckle with time.

Giant Bomb - 3/5

Review
Author: Dan Ryckert
If the impending release of The Force Awakens has you in the mood for a casual online shooter set in the Star Wars universe, this game can certainly provide that for a dozen or so hours. Battlefront initially checks all of the boxes for being a great Star Wars game, but its limited amount of content and lack of meaningful progression kept me from wanting to return for more than a brief visit.

Hardcore Gamer - 3/5

Review
Author: Kevin Dunsmore
Star Wars Battlefront is a solid proof-of-concept that should be fully realized in an inevitable sequel. Like Evolve, Titanfall and The Order: 1886 before it, Battlefront chooses style over substance. It’s absolutely beautiful and captures what it’s like to be in a Star Wars film, but style can only take a game so far. Star Cards and Heroes help make battles interesting, but the combat is too simplified to create long-term engagement. There is fun to be had, especially when the spectacle of Star Wars is in full effect. That spectacle, however, soon wears off and what’s left is a game with too few weapons, maps and heroes. In the end, Star Wars Battlefront is all Binks and no Fett.

IGN - Review in Progress

Review
Author: Mitch Dyer
Star Wars Battlefront captures everything I love most about Star Wars. It’s playful and imaginative, driven by a sense of adventure and fun above all else. By embracing this, and improving on the classic original Battlefront, developer DICE has made almost exactly the Star Wars multiplayer shooter I’ve always wanted.

Metro - 8/10

Review
Author: David Jenkins
It’s not the ultimate Star Wars game, it doesn’t do anything revolutionary for the online shooter genre, and it’s certainly not very deep or complex. But it is an enormous amount of fun. Which seems perfectly fitting considering the movies it’s based on.

Polygon - 8/10

Review
Authors: Dave Tach and Justin McElroy
In a sea of multiplayer-focused shooters, Star Wars Battlefront distinguishes itself as much by what it does as what it doesn't, and that comes at a price. Its old school simplicity doesn't always mesh with its attempts to bring those ideas into 2015, and it lacks some of those back-of-the-box bullet points that most modern AAA shooters wouldn't be caught dead without.

Ticgn - 8.5/10

Review
Author: Jordan P.
Star Wars: Battlefront is fantastic both as a game and as a love letter to the Star Wars movies. The game’s graphics and sounds are incredibly well crafted, if I could I would just walk around the maps looking at the sites and listening to the sounds of the battles. What the game lacks for in the single player department, it more than makes up for with its multiplayer; Battlefront‘s multiplayer is the most fun I’ve had with a multiplayer shooter in years, I’ve played it for nearly ten hours and I’m still eager to jump back in.

US Gamer - 3.5/5

Review
Author: Kat Bailey
Ultimately, I think DICE and EA have done an otherwise tremendous shooter a disservice by seemingly holding so much content back for future expansions. There's a lot to love about the actual gameplay; and on the surface, there are plenty of modes, but Battlefront doesn't really stand up to extended scrutiny. It's a sugar rush of a shooter that fades more quickly than it should. In a year or so, Battlefront may have reached its true potential. For now, it's roughly one-third of a Game of the Year caliber shooter.

VideoGamer - 7/10

Review
Author: Steven Burns
Star Wars Battlefront, then, is one of the best experiences of the year, if only for a short while. Completionists may stay with it to unlock figures for the in-game diorama which shows how many challenges you've completed, but others will find their interest has waned long before that. Too limited in its maps and modes to keep people hooked, it will nevertheless provide enough fun to jump onto once in a while, hear that famous score and maybe take down an AT-AT. Those who wanted a Battlefront III, however, will have to wait a little while longer.

Non-Review Pieces

Digital Foundry Analysis

Article
Author: John Linneman
In closing, we should stress that this is a preliminary analysis with more to follow, but we can confirm that performance and visual quality are looking highly impressive in the final code. We're impressed to see DICE continue to optimise and improve the game right up until launch, when there was already little to complain about in the beta. The only question remaining is how well the netcode and servers will hold up given the inevitably extreme pressure likely during the launch window.

Star Wars Battlefront is a solid proof-of-concept that should be fully realized in an inevitable sequel. Like Evolve, Titanfall and The Order: 1886 before it, Battlefront chooses style over substance. It’s absolutely beautiful and captures what it’s like to be in a Star Wars film, but style can only take a game so far. Star Cards and Heroes help make battles interesting, but the combat is too simplified to create long-term engagement. There is fun to be had, especially when the spectacle of Star Wars is in full effect. That spectacle, however, soon wears off and what’s left is a game with too few weapons, maps and heroes. In the end, Star Wars Battlefront is all Binks and no Fett.

Daily Dot - 3/5

Review
Author: Dennis Scimeca
That nostalgia, much more than the current depth offered by Battlefront is going to drive adoption of this game. You’d probably be better off waiting to see what the expansion packs are going to offer, and then getting the total package for much less than the $110 it’s going to cost you if you buy everything on release. Then again, who wants to wait for their Star Wars video game pew-pew fix when it looks and sounds this good?

IGN - Review in Progress

Review
Author: Mitch Dyer
Star Wars Battlefront captures everything I love most about Star Wars. It’s playful and imaginative, driven by a sense of adventure and fun above all else. By embracing this, and improving on the classic original Battlefront, developer DICE has made almost exactly the Star Wars multiplayer shooter I’ve always wanted.

Digital Foundry Analysis

Article
Author: John Linneman
In closing, we should stress that this is a preliminary analysis with more to follow, but we can confirm that performance and visual quality are looking highly impressive in the final code. We're impressed to see DICE continue to optimise and improve the game right up until launch, when there was already little to complain about in the beta. The only question remaining is how well the netcode and servers will hold up given the inevitably extreme pressure likely during the launch window.

Questions Answers
Why are you so lucky? Do you do weird rituals? puts on Boba Fett Helmet
I generally don't put on a Boba Fett helmet. This is a new and wonderful thing for me...
It's so beautiful inside here! I can hear the badassery! I want to say something badass like I throw a steak at a wall, and eat it before it descends to the ground
As far as rituals go, the one ritual I have is... one thing that I try to do is I try to just leave myself open to new things. And I try to put myself in situations where fun things could happen. I got my first book deal because I (on a whim) sent a paragraph to a publisher, asking "Hey, can I publish this book?"
I got on JEOPARDY! because I decided Hey, let's take a test.
I got ROME SWEET ROME because I went on reddit and said I could write a story, and it might be crazy, but I'll go ahead and write it anyway.
And I mean- I've been rewarded, pretty well, for just deciding to take a chance on things.
And that's not always easy to do, you know? It's not always easy to throw yourself into the sea of Fate. But as far as a ritual goes, that's probably as close as I get when this sort of thing happens.

Do writers have to be full of emotions to write a novel? Sometimes when I got frustrated I tend to write them down, but my writing grades aren't good,is that means I am not a born writer? Look, every human is born to tell stories. Our feelings are unique and they are important. Our ability to share what we are feeling and thinking is one of the most incredible things in the universe. Never be ashamed of writing. Never be afraid to speak out.
You don't have to be full of emotions to write: Look at the popularity of novels by, say, Asimov or Heinlein, which are pretty Olympian and detached and seem to do fairly well.
Your grades are a snapshot of what one person thinks of one part of your writing at one point in your life. That doesn't define you as a writer. You should always welcome feedback and use it to improve. Experiment with different styles and in different genres. It will take you some time to find your voice, and probably more time to find an audience for it.
But never, never believe it's impossible. Never think that you are not a born writer. Writers are made. They make themselves.
Fantastic reply. Fifty pages into my novel and I really needed to read this. KEEP GOING.
Yeah, I'm hoping it will be more therapeutic than traumatizing. Here's to hoping. It's more inspirational than anything I've said. You should write an essay about your decision to confront that event through your art. There are a lot of people who would love to hear about it. Post it to /writing. Pitch it to a blog. Hell, pitch it to Slate.
How did you get the inspiration of Rome sweet Rome? How do you cope with fame? Rome Sweet Rome (as you can see in the link I posted) was a response to a question on Reddit. Everything sort of clicked and I punched that whole thing out in an hour. I'm not entirely sure how, or I'd do that over every lunch hour.
Have you ever tried to eat your fries with Mayonnaise? I love fries with mayo. Well, like three or four fries with mayo. I'm 40, I can't eat piles of junk like I used to.
Do you have any advice for those of us just out of college with eng and creative writing degrees? And what's up with your knees? Write every day, read every day. Before any talent or big idea, you need to have the fundamentals down cold, and the most important fundamental is producing words.
And if you're going to write, write what you want to write. The odds against any creator are insane. If you're going to devote months of your time, don't let it be for an idea you think will sell. Odds are it won't. Write something you want to write, or need to write. Write for yourself before anyone else. I'd rather read someone who is excited and passionate about what they want to say than someone who's obviously trying to say what they think I want to hear.
What was the final jeopardy question you were asked? I think MREs would be great with a healthy splash of garum.
How firm was Alex Trebek's handshake? I was asked three questions and biffed them all. I bet $15,000 on the last one. "No one's gotten a Final Jeopardy all week. It has to be easy. I'll bet a lot." NOPE. It was something along the lines of "this phrase started out meaning 'a substitute for correction'" and I got it super-wrong and went home. Still: I got to gamble $15,000 in front of millions of people and that was fun.
Are your knees the source of your special powers? Trebek's handshake is exactly right. The man oozes professionalism.
What would taste better? MREs or Moretum. My knees are the source of my most special power, which is complaining about moving.
I am a (somewhat) aspiring author. I write a lot on /Writingprompts and people there have gotten to know me a bit. The publicity was a huge help. I've landed interviews on national radio and I've been on TV in Canada and Japan and I've had all kinds of other ridiculous opportunities no first-time author should get. Without RSR, there's no way I'd have launched a successful Kickstarter campaign.
My question is: how did your following on Reddit help you get a publisher on board for Acadia? When speaking with a potential agent or publisher, how did you describe Reddit itself and your interactions with the community? Virtually everyone I've talked to in publishing understands Reddit, and the value of that instant feedback and community, and they also understand some of the limitations involved in working on Reddit. I'll tell you what, though, when it comes to the Terms of Service: if someone really wants to buy your work they will find a way.
So the secret is to have publishers banging down your door. Got it. Ha! Exactly. If I knew the formula to make that happen, I would not have a day job.
What is your book Acadia about? And what gave you inspiration to write such a novel? Acadia takes place a hundred years from now, when humanity is on the verge of reaching for the stars. A secret force which has manipulated the course of the 21st century threatens all of humanity, and a small group of humans and AIs must fight to change the course of history.
The book came out of an idea I had a few years ago of a woman alone in space, which, a year before Gravity, was an exciting new thing. Books take a long time.
How scientifically accurate would you say your book is? I ask because I just finished The Martian by Andy Weir and loved how scientifically correct everything was in that book. I realize you can't really be spot on with antimatter thrusters and what not but I like things to at least be plausible. I'd say some elements are rock-solid, and I stretched where I felt it was necessary but never to the point of ludicrousness.
Just a heads up, this should be your excerpt and not what's given on Amazon / Breadpig, why the hell is it so vague and poorly written? What you've described I would gladly read. I'll work on it!
of all, I want to say that Rome Sweet Rome is one of the oldest threads that I actually remember reading live, and I think that's awesome. A manager contacted me within a couple hours (well, my manager, Adam Kolbrenner) and once I announced I was working with him, Warner Brothers called him a few days later. And he had one conversation with Warner Brothers, and they said Let's do it - which is ridiculous, just beyond anything that ever happens. So to go from 8 pages of punched-out first draft to an announced deal of VARIETY 2 months later is about as fast as anything in that business ever happens.
Hi, your wife here. Any plans for your next adventure? So to confirm, yes you are actually my wife.
My next novel or my next story (not necessarily my next adventure) - I think that so much of what's happened to me has just been accepting the opportunities, and making the most of the opportunities I have had in my life, and I think that a big part of that is your presence in it.
I'm making Victoria type this! Hahaha!
So, of course, any updates regarding the production of ”Rome Sweet Rome”? We're still processing stuff through Amazon and expect that we'll be able to get ebooks available through them later today. There's an amazing amount of headache involved in going through a small publisher, but I've had great partners at Breadpig who have helped me from Day One of kickstartering and creating this novel.
Also, is there anyway I can order Acadia in digital form? I am from Romania, and it would take a while until a copy would get here... Check out the Subscribe link at prufrock451.com: I'll announce when it's available!
It says that you have a book reading somewhere in Manhattan, but I couldn't find any details about that. Is the reading still going to happen, where? At 6:30 tonight, 155 Rivington!
Check out /acadia, there's a post about it.
Shit, dude, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but it's "asked my wife and me." takes off crown
My kingdom is now yours.
Three writers? Are you going to be the lead writer, final decision maker? Will you have power in the process to demand your creative vision or is Warner Bros going to turn this into what they think an audience wants to see? Anytime you start a project with a $100 million dollar budget, a few people are going to want a say in how it turns out - especially if they are putting out the $100 million dollars.
So I went in expecting this whole thing to be a very collaborative process. I went in expecting my ideas to be only part of what ended up on screen. And I made my peace with that, before I wrote one word of the screenplay, which is what you have to do if you want to stay sane.

Questions Answers
Hey mc I've been a fan since 05-06 and I want to thank you for everything you've done for me. In the fall of 2008 I was in the midst of a serious depression and I felt completely hopeless. I was so fucked up that when I was walking to and from college I would close my eyes as I crossed the street just in case a car wanted to come flying down the road at that moment. As my depression worsened I decided to kill myself. I cleaned my room, wrote a will for the distribution of my few belongings to my family and friends, and wrote letters to all of the important people in my life. I decided that the best way to go would be by stepping in front of one of the many freight trains that travel through my neighborhood. Cut to a few days later; I was sitting on the gravel embankment next to the train tracks, smoking a few bowls and listening to what I had intended to be my 'suicide playlist' which was essentially my favorite artists on shuffle as I worked up the nerve to step in front of a 200 ton steel box moving at 45mph. After about a half hour of sitting and thinking I got up and started to pump myself up to put myself down. That's when "Never Give Up" from the album 'mc chris is Dead' started playing. And I sat back down. I listened to the song over and over, and I cried for the longest time. After that I got up, walked home and tried to keep on trucking. Maybe I would have found some other reason to stop from killing myself, or maybe I would have gone through with it, I don't know, but your music saved my life. Now when I get down, I turn to your albums and that Never-give-up-never quit-keep-trying attitude that permeates your work is a serious help. Edit: I just joined reddit two days ago for an unrelated reason, so I don't know the whole story behind the drama, but I don't give a fuck. People have clashes of opinions. People don't get along. That's human nature. No big deal, neh? You know i get this letter every week. and im an atheist but i find it so weird how many times never give up has appeared during a shuffle right when a person needed to hear it. i love the mysterious nature of the universe and how sometimes it takes care of us. i'm glad i could help. when i made that song, i told andrew wk, who sings at the end, that it would save lives, and he flashed that big grin. we were weren't making money we were using music to help those that needed it. that's when it's best. we still hope to make another song together. im glad you're feeling better and i hope things continue to improve. your letter is why i do what i do, and i hope i can continue to be given the chance to help those that feel like they have exhausted all their options. never give up!
Mc chris is dead is probably the album of yours which sees the most plays in my personal rotation. Never Give Up has gotten me through various times of bullshit, so thank you for that. Listening to that album right now to get me in the mood for this AMA. This is gonna sound lame but i just listen to the radio. i listen to oldies and classic rock. i know, i know it's not very cool. but thinking back to 80's and growing up in illinois is like nostalgia crack for me. i've been listening to a lot of 80's. when i did race wars i listened to a lot of 70's music. whatever the number of the album is is the decade i listen to. so my next album mc chris foreverrr had a big 80's theme. and all the beats sound very 80's ish.
I’m not going to analyze all the shit that went down last time on reddit, but I’d just like to point out to the internet haters that no one is beyond redemption, that chris has some balls for doing this, and to remind everyone not to be dicks. As for food hangouts, i love my local diner and a couple eateries in my brooklyn neighborhood. after i sobered up i started learning everyone's names and now i know everyone at my diner and they know what i want before i sit down, and it shows up at my table before i even have a chance to harvest my tomaco. i love my diner and even when i'm not there and order delivery from there i get shy, but they recognize my voice on the phone. it's nice to be known in a way besides being known as mc chris.
I saw you in Orlando last year with a friend of mine (and along with Powerglove and Richie Branson, you guys put on a kickass show), and just wanted to say despite all the hate that was circumventing you on the internet at the time, you handled yourself pretty well during the followup and there are people out there who still think you're a great guy. • How's your fundraiser for cystic fibrosis coming along? Has it taken off more than you expected it to? The cartoon kickstarter is off to a great start. we made $12K last night but like i said we have a really long way to go. but i'll be touring during half the fundraising so i think talking it up everyday and sitting with fans at a computer and doing it that way will help. i love the wild west mars script. it's only a first draft but the concept art is starting to trickle in and i get really excited. when i showed my fiancee the script she laughed 20 times. i was just sitting there marking off every time she laughed without her knowing it. i think that's a good sign. cystic fibrosis fundraising has gone well this year. we just finished selling all my mini figs, which was sad but all i have to do is hold something in my hand and say what's more important this thing or my nephew's health. my nephew has had it since he was born five years ago, and since then we've raised $125,000 not bad! all of it goes to the cystic fibrosis foundation which helps with other fundraisers and getting more new medications in the pipeline. i don't know what i've expected but i definitely get surprised every sale. someone paid over $500 for a bunch of figs last round. he spent over $250 for an admiral akbar keychain. i don't know why but i felt like it had to be a trap. but it wasn't! i'm blessed with fans that care. and i get letters everyday from folks that suffer from cf or know someone they've lost. i think it will be a huge focus in my life. i plan to ask for a govt grant to make a cf cartoon short to explain what it is to raise awareness because kickstarter doesn't do charity.
With the re-release of your old material this year, does that mean you and Fewell have worked things out? Care to explain what happened there? Yes we have worked everything out. the truth is john owns all the records and is acting manager of the company jet pack industries. that was a mistake i made when everything was first drawn up. i just didn't have proper representation at the time and i lost control of a lot of my music. we share the company 50/50 but he's acting manager but i have the fan's ear so they need me and my store to tell the fans when to shop and where. over the years i didn't want to put it out and split the music 50/50 because i didn't think it was a fair split. but fett's vette was costing $10 a pop on the zack and miri soundtrack and i thought it wasn't fair to fans, so after a while i got over it and said let's just put it all out. it took 14 months of new contract negotiations to get everything agreed upon, a very difficult process because my father died in that timeframe. but i got through it and now everything is available and collector's can rejoice! i liked having everything for free on my site because i wanted to get the music out more than i wanted to deal with all the legal stuff. but each year i grow up a little more, and i see that fans want to own these records. specifically the vinyl and i get that now. so john and i share the proceeds and they WILL be on the merch table at shows this summer. i don't know how long it will last though, as things get more and more digital every year. but i think it will always be online and we'll press some vinyl of every year.
Ps: can you message the mods of /hiphopheads and tell them to give me my mc chris flair? They won't take me seriously for some reason. And i will message the mods and see if you can't get your flair. people don't take me very seriously if it's any consolation.
I'm not familiar with the ins-and-outs of the music industry but will this mean your albums will be available on Spotify (and other streaming services) in the near future? The old ones are there now. and the new albums are carried by a label digitally that doesn't do spotify. but thanks for listening.
Hey mc, I love the cartoon so far. I was just wondering: how does 10 minutes of animation cost $200,000? Can you tell us what factors into that price? I was surprised to hear the amount myself. and i don't know what we'll be able to accomplish. but that is what cartoons cost. i will say that titmouse is a trustworthy professional company and everything is happening at a much cheaper rate than an adult swim show which would cost twice as much. i don't get paid, the actors don't get paid, my music guy didn't make any money either on the first six minutes. i acutally spent about $15K of my own money on paying my artist for character art and backgrounds and a computer for him. i think the time and labor that goes into character design background design is a half of it and the other half is the animation cost. we went for the full amount to make the best toon we could and we wanted to tell a story with a beginning middle and end. we could have split it up into parts, but that would probably mean one episode a year instead of three. it's a lot of money but it's still a very cheap cartoon as far as cartoons go. i lose money every time, but this is a dream that i guess i'm just too dead set on to care.
I won the Chicago costume contest as quail man. Being on stage with you was an honor. Also the epic pose off I had with the penguin made me feel like a real superhero! Thank you for the 5 or so awesome shows I've been to! I can't wait for your next show! And thanks for coming to a show and wearing a costume that was a really fun tour. the winner got to go to disney world and ride the new star tours which is really awesome, if you haven't ridden it yet. next time i'd like send someone to vegas. so we will have a costume contests again!
Heya Chris. I like you. You're a good person. That is all. \o. That means so much to me right now thanks!
So Sealab 2021 and The Brak Show are two of my all-time favorite shows and I recently noticed that you were the assistant animator on Sealab and the production assistant on The Brak Show. Which show did you have more fun with, if any fun at all? Furthermore, as someone who aspires more than anything to work for Adult Swim, what advice/inspirational beats do you have to help make my goals a reality? It was fun to watch andy merril record, to work with cee-lo, to actually write two scripts on the brak show, but in spite of how difficult it sometimes was, sealab was the most fun. matt and adam were like these awesome brothers to me, they showed me how to drive stick shift, why the middle east was fucked up, they explained the universe to me, taught me how to pay bills and be a man basically. and every friday we'd play unreal with no gravity and eat mellow mushroom pizza. i'll never forget driving around the atl with adam with the top down in his 67 skylark. (i was an nyc transplant that moved with the show when it went down south) everyone asked how much for the car? one time adam pulled over next to a guy on the side of the road who was having car trouble and he didn't need help and adam got back in and said, "that's when it's great when you do a good deed but don't have to do anything." they were amazing guys, and sometimes it was hell, but it's still a time i'll never forget. now that archer is a big success i wish i had never left, but then there'd be no pee pants and maybe no mc chris. everything happens like it's supposed to.
Because of the internet the best way to get on to adult swim is make your stuff and put it online, get a following, make a move to a coast, get an agent and then shop your work. children's hospital, robot chicken all we're pre-exisitng web shows before they got their time in the sun. stop dreaming and start making stuff. nothing is stopping you but yourself.
Mellow Mushroom is the shit. What was your favorite order? Im boring i like the plain. i miss that crust. so good. made with spring water!
Holy shit, you wrote the episode Shadows of Heat? When I first saw that in college I almost pissed myself laughing. That's my favorite episode. Wow thanks. i don't think anyone has ever said that to me. means a lot. i love noir and it was so fun to write it.
MC! Finish this debate between my friends and I, is your song popcorn frog about cunnilingus? Nope it's about eating popcorn with your tongue like a frog, where you stick it out and bring a piece of popcorn back in your mouth. it's also about remembering my mom cheering me up with popcorn after being fun of at school, and how happy it made me, and every time i eat i think back to eating popcorn and watching inspector gadget and just letting the day melt away like butter.
I'm super sorry for being a dick guys...can I have some money? Kind of like when a kid acts all nice to get something from their parents. Well i am sorry for being a dick. and you don't have to give me anything. cool?
So Wiid is no longer by your side? Nope but i will still do the song live. i just saw that it wasn't helping, i was in a fog and not dealing with reality, whether it be my dad's death, or my career, or even that i was mc chris. it was just time to deal. and it wasn't easy. a lot of people laughed at me and said it wasn't a real addiction but i smoked everyday for 18 years and would get super tense and pissed if i couldn't find any. i can still get tense and pissed, i don't blame it all on weed, but at least now i feel like have more control over my emotions. i don't cry as much at everything. i don't get as upset. although truth be told i can still lose my cool. i just wanted to grow up a little. and now that I'm sober i have a lot of regrets and feel very rip van winkle-ish. i've lost a lot of people, so much has changed, all because i was too stoned to hang out or stay connected. now im trying to reestablish those connections, but it aint easy. but my therapist helped me jump the fence. i thought i would start drinking or kill myself, but he showed me that that just wasnt true. it's been really helpful, and i've saved a lot of dough. and now i read instead and can speak more clearly, remember people and what i was saying. can't wait to perform and not be worried finding weed or getting caught with it. it's a load off my mind and hopefully it will help with fan relations and heckler relations. of course, i respect anyone else's choice to smoke, i think it's the least dangerous way to self medicate and i think i will see it get legalized in my life time. i hope to legally smoke with my kids some day. uh when they're old enough of course. :)
How's the not smoking weed going? I sure could go for a joint right now...
I actually got you stoned at Warped in Indy a few years back (I was doing the promo for Pineapple Express). I too have given up weed and honestly feel my life has vastly improved since. Keep up the good work. Agreed. good to hear from you again. thanks for the shirt!
What was Libertyville like when you were younger? Shameless plug for /libertyville. Holy shit there's a libertville subreddit? that rules. well, in my day the grass was green there was still farms, but i saw lots of the land get burbed. i lived on lake street near butterfield school. and i played in the little league at butler park, went to adler day camp, when the pool was just two squares. my favorite thing was liberty theater. i remember where i was sitting for most of the movies i saw there. i loved that place so much, the galaga machine. i loved hawthorne theater in vernon hills because they played the more important movies like rotj and ghostbusters and i loved the mall, went every saturday, got two potato cakes and would get a new gi joe at kay bee next door. all that's changed now. a lot of my songs take place there. like tussin first verse, or the masturbation song. you can hear references to downings and denny's in freaks.
Now that i'm older and its time for me to settle down i just look for towns like libertyville. but there just isnt one. in a lot of ways it's a perfect place. it can be very conservative and racist, at least when i was there. it wasn't an easy place to grow up being different, not athletic, artistic, but there were cool kids that wore long black coats that listened to the cure. there was a counter culture. i was in all the plays at the high school and would take the walk home around the lake. i loved the lake and cemetery, the willows by the band shelter. i still miss it. last time i was there i went to great america. everything seems so small to me now. growing up sucks. it's like the world shrinks on you.
Why do you kick people out of concerts for their tweets? It's something that i did and never did again. i was defending a friend, but i did it in the wrong way. i apologized to the tweeter. i had made a habit of trying to over control everything and that was wrong. i regret it and i'm sorry for it and it's just one of those things i can't take back but wish that i could.
Mc chris, you sound like a 10-year-old. Anyway, I love your stuff, and The Imperial Senate was one of the funniest skits I've ever heard in my life. How much of that was improv and how much was scripted? Everyone in those podcast skits are improvisers from the upright citizens brigade. curtis gwinn, chris gethard, john gemberling, andy rocco, matt decoster. i would give them a general idea of what i wanted and then conduct them they were instruments. like you give me more, you quiet down, every one talk over each other! etc i'm glad you liked them, they are very much in the mc chris cartoon. a lot of the stuff you've seen about me on reddit or youtube, the nastier stuff, will be represented by these characters that hate me but can't stop being fans for some reasons.
Did Hesh ever get any sex? None. actually i think he and debbie got married and did it. can't remember. im not sure if that episode was real or fan fic.
Interesting... I better start refreshing my memory with a marathon! Did you stick with Sealab til the end? Have the guys ever asked you to get involved in Archer? I was in the first and last episode. and i have not been asked to be on archer sadly. looks like they're doing just fine without me. proud of my friends lucky and amber though.
On Race Wars you have a couple of guest spots, something that mc chris albums have lacked in the past; Is this something you will continue to do on future albums and who are some current rappers you haven't collaborated with that you'd like to get on a track? Who are some that you HAVE worked with that you would like to again? Not sure who'd i'd collaborate with now, maybe some of the rappers i grew up with beasties boys, wu tang, de la. would love to do another childish track or a kitty pryde track and wk and have talked about reuniting.
Who is the comedian on the track "Fuckin' up my Christmas" ? I love the song, but that bit takes a large portion of that dope beat away. Would you ever consider a re-mix where the comedian is cut-out and a third verse is laid down in his place? Steve martin, as another fan pointed out.
Maybe I was just stoned, but I remember reading years back about plans to release a book containing the lyrics for all of your albums. any news on that front? Lyrics book comes out next year.
What are some animated series that you like currently and what do you think about the current state of Adult Swim? Current cartoons, i don't know man, i watch all old shit. although i did watch a lot of superjail last year. as for adult swim now, it's mainly live action and it's a different place from what i knew. i made a bunch of eps of show called tight bros with mf doom and that didn't pan out. so that hurt a little as did getting my show rejected so i've backed off a little but, i'll probably be back someday if i'm lucky.
Who truly inspires you to chase your dreams and be confident you can achieve them? Family, friends, past or present? I don't know who inspires me really, i have heroes like david lynch and jim henson, walt disney, people that were weird and just kept at it until it became the norm. as far as doing what i do, i don't know anyone that does it like this. the other rappers in my genre have a hard time staying afloat, and most others get on labels that eventually drop them. im a rare case in that it supports itself and can continue as long as the fans want it to. and thankfully they want it to :)
Am I the only one who's irked by the fact that he says he came on to say he's sorry for being lame, but is in fact doing this to plug his kickstarter? It's like having a buddy who only gets in touch when a favor is needed. Yeah i should have done the two things separately and i get that now. i wish the kickstarter part wasn't there so it wouldn't dilute the fact that i am sorry for what went down in the past. but it's possible i fucked up too much to ever be forgiven for anything. this is just another eye opener. and i guess it's something i needed to see.
You seem like a self centered asshole who's trying to pick up the scraps of his alienated fanbase, correct? I've listened to your music and it's not great, I'm still trying to figure out what the fuss is about. With that said, good luck staying sober, it's a rough road. Thanks man. being sober is about dealing with reality and i guess that's why i came here today to try to talk to everyone about what happened. i won't give up. i have enough fans that are without complaint that i'll be ok no matter what but i'd like to try to let them know that i'm sorry if they're willing to listen. i think the fuss is there because some folks liked me and then were disappointed and feel cheated. and none of us like that feeling and want the person that cheated us to pay. i understand that.
Happy you're doing this. Out of all the characters you've played on t.v. Which one was your favorite to voice and why? To be honest i like doing mc chris in the skits and on the new mc chris cartoon. i get to act and i can decide what to do and how silly or serious to make it. i hope i get to make more cartoons just to show every one what im capable of. if i had to pick mc pee pants or hesh i'd have to go with young carl. both characters are a lot of screaming and anger, which as we all know i'm definitely capable of, but young carl had at least two emotions going on there. excitement, fear and then sadness.
Any word on you going to PAX (or PAX East) one of these days? There is already a pretty strong presence of nerdcore rappers (MC Frontalot, et al), I'd bet you'd be awesome there. I'd love to return but i cancelled one year 45 days before the show and i've since been banned. i was offered an opening slot with reggie and the full effect on their last tour ever, and i couldn't say no bc his album inspired me to make music at all. fans ask robert and gabe and tycho and they pull the go ask your mother, go ask your father bit. i think maybe i just have to let it go, and throw it on my pile of fuck ups. im glad venues don't act like that though. or else there'd be no independent music, because touring is the only way we make money and every band has had to cancel and every venue has rebooked a band that might have do that. i hope they bring me back, but i'd be surprised if they did.
Hey bro, I've mainly got a few questions and then I'll try to stay outta yer face unless I come up with something else. Any release date for Marshmellow Campground? And will it be a full length or an EP like last time? It will be longer and i've decided to take my time with it, so i'm not sure when it will be out. right now we have almost ten songs.
Which album are you the most proud of? What is your favorite track off your least favorite mc album? Any chance you'd be interested in making a cameo in an indie movie written and directed by a hardcore fan? (I'll understand if you only answer the first two questions haha) Like i said before i'm most proud of mc chris is dead. it has the best songs on it. as for my favorite off my least favorite i think i like part one the batman song off of racewars as well as jelly inside and restart. sometimes even when you're sucking there's stuff to be proud of. i was super bummed when i made that record, my dad was passing from cancer, but i desperately wanted to get it out. im glad i did it, but it hurts having an album you're not totally proud of. but at the same time it just pushes you to keep writing and recording.
I know this is a cliche question, but what is your favorite song to perform? Also, when you were younger did you always see yourself as a rapper or did mini MC Chris have different life plans? And most of all, thank you for doing this AMA. Thanks for asking a question! i love performing fett's vette because we all sing it together. that's when a song is done when we all know and can sing it without a beat.
When i was little i wanted to be bill waterson or bill amend. i thought being a cartoonist was the coolest thing you could be. i always thought id be a disney animator growing. and it was crazy that i actually became one, albeit with adult swim.
Mc! Huge fan, have seen you twice in concert at the Wow hall in Eugene. Hope you make it to Portland sometime soon! Everytime I go to the Roxy in downtown Portland your music is on the jukebox. Question - Do you have any ambition to expand your talents to the world of video game production, whether it be writing, animation, or voice acting? It's my dream to be in a game other than athf game. i've had tours of bioware, epic, valve and have had lots of programmers at my shows. i love it when someone from say naughty dog comes to a show and i get to be the fan. but yes, it's my dream to make a game based on the cartoon, to star in pre-existing games, i was almost in portal 2 but it didn't come to pass. that was i think the ultimate cock tease. but my cock hasn't given up!
Hey big fan.what was the album/song you most enjoyed creating? Mc chris is dead by far. it was my first album with andrew futral. and i think it was a creative high point for me. where it wasn't about money, merch and touring, and i didn't feel like i was being taken advantage of. andrew is a fun guy to work with and very good at what he does. and everything just came together. i like freaks, hoodie ninja, nrrrd grrrl, mc chris is dead, never give up so many songs on that album i like and i usually feel like i fucked it all up most of the time. but that album i can live with.
Hey Chris! Where did you end up hanging your Cthulhu Plaque? Thanks! …also, how far did you get in Luigi's Mansion? I'm at the clock tower thanks for asking, and cthulhu is over calendar on my bed. the calendar with all the green x's on it for days without weed. every time i look at it i think, that's gonna make a lot of money for CF someday.
Who shot first? John wilkes booth.
Your songs with Childish Gambino always made me happy. My favorite one is probably The Stand. How'd you end up working with Donald so early in his rap career? He asked me. we're both from UCB so when people were coming up, adult swim was happening and they thought i was cool. now they're cool and i look up to them.
What happened? I kicked out a fan for dissing my opener and over reacted it got posted on reddit and made the front page which brought on a lot of comments from others about other fuck ups on my part. i apologized then but was too emotional and i did it in the wrong way. now i'm back trying to apologize but i coupled it with a new project and it was another error on my part.
Didn't he apologize for that though? I'm confused as to why reddit is asking for another apology and claiming that he hasn't til now when he has a new project going. I did apologize before and the new project brought me here, but i should have showed up sooner. but i guess i was scared and the project gave me confidence to reappear. but i was wrong to do it at the same time.
Yo mc, big fan! whats your opinion on the new aqua teen? will you ever come back and tour the UK again? :) To be honest i haven't watched. i haven't seen adult swim in a while. and i would love to return to the UK. meeting fans overseas was a dream come true. can't believe i have fans in places like liverpool and scotland.
Have you ever shot a man in Reno? Also: Why watch movies with fans in Austin but never in Houston? The simple answer is that i had connections with alamo drafthouse and they wanted to do things in austin, but honestly i'll screen a movie anywhere that wants to screen one. any time i can see movies with fans i do it, because it's fun, it's a break from tour, and it's a great way to hang with fans. last tour we all saw paranorman together and it was really cathartic.
He apologized his ass off...these assholes ignored that I guess? They didn't ignore it they just didn't believe it, and rightfully so. i had made so many bad calls and acting so stupid for so long nothing seemed legit. im not sure what would have been the right way but posting that vid just seemed weird because i was so emotional over other things.
Hey mc, im really glad you got around to doing this. i am very excited about your upcomming tour. what is your favorite city to play in? I like ann arbor a lot because it's always a sold out show, they have a cool comic book store, vault of midnight and the fleetwood diner is super good.
I also like orlando, cuz we can go to an amusement park, usually there's a fan that can sneak us in to harry potter first day or simpsons first day when everything is nice and fresh.
I like austin because the food rules and we get to watch a movie at the alamo drafthouse. i like birmingham because of the creamed corn nuggets at bottle tree. i like baton rouge because they make this killer chill for me.
MC, I really can't believe this has devolved so far. I love your music. I wear your shirts. I've met you, and while I don't have any great story, the show was good and you signed my inhaler. You raise money for cf. I just don't think you're an asshole. I'm an uncomfortable, antisocial, awkward nerd and I loved you because it felt like you were too. I wanted to thank you for being you. Also, coming to Columbus, Oh this year? I hope so we'll find out soon where we're going. thanks for being nice! hope to see you at another show!
I first heard of your music through Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Zach and Miri Make a Porno. I love your music, my question is what is your favorite part from either the show or the movie? I always related to meatwad, having older brothers and getting picked on, but just being like, i still love my toys and my music and nothing's gonna get me down.
As for zack and miri i think i liked seeing craig robinson dance to fett's vette. that was pretty amazing to me.
MC, who's been your favorite collab been with, and if you could pick anyone to collab with that you haven't, who would it be? It was awesome to collab with cee-lo, andrew wk, kitty pryde, talib kweli, childish gambino, etc. as for who it was the greatest honor to collab with i'm not sure because we never are in the same room, it's always stuff being sent back and forth. i think the song i made with andrew wk (never give up) means the most to me because it helps people and it wasn't just about getting attention or money or being some surprise on mix tape.
I'd really like to collab with de la soul, the beastie boys, stuff i grew up with. i love stuff like black sheep and epmd, anybody from those groups would be super cool for me. and phife dawg. i think he might be the ultimate dream.
